Cinematography, Editing, and 2 Other Oscars Categories Won’t Make Broadcast

In yet another move that the Academy Awards is making because they think it’s a good idea- four main categories will be presented during a commercial break at the 91st Annual Academy Awards (aka Oscars).

Best Original Song Performances WILL Happen at Academy Awards [Oscars]

After originally announcing only two of the five Best Original Song nominees would be performing their entries during the telecast, it appears The Academy has changed their minds. Previously, it seemed only “Shallow” from A Star Is Born and “All The Stars” from Black Panther would get live performances, which understandably prompted responses from the other nominees. […]


Bryan Singer Still in for ‘Red Sonja’, GLAAD Awards Drop ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

It’s been a week of stories about Bryan Singer.

What If The Academy Awards Had a Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film Category?

The 2019 Academy Awards announced their nominations and in light of the discussion of shocking choices and snubs, I propose another solution: expand the categories. The Academy provides the gold standard of filmmaking, but often it feels the categories provided don’t represent the scope of the film industry like science fiction/fantasy films. While it’s inspiring […]

Sam Elliot Reacts to his FIRST EVER Oscar Nomination; “It’s About F**king Time!”

Hard to believe 2019 sees Sam Elliot‘s first ever Oscar nomination, but here we are. Elliot was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role in Bradley Cooper‘s remake of A Star Is Born, and we couldn’t agree more.

Oscars 2019 Looks to Avengers Reunion for Largest ‘Endgame’ Infomercial Ever

It’s been a pretty rough “pre-season” for ABC and The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), to say the least. Even before the entire Kevin Hart/hosting debacle, AMPAS and the network had been dealing with serious backlash from all corners of filmdom when they attempted to add a new “popular film” category that […]

Kevin Hart on Oscars 2019 Hosting: “I’m Over That, I’m Over the Moment”

When you go on the network that hosts the show you’re about to publicly state you no longer have any interest in hosting, it’s pretty safe to say you’re probably giving your definitve answer.

Kevin Hart Opens Up About Oscars Controversy

Report: Kevin Hart Will Not Host Oscars 2019. Again.

At least it didn’t stretch out too long… Looks like the on-again/off-again tango between actor/comedian Kevin Hart and the 2019 Academy Awards is officially off for good (???), with reports circulating that Hart stepped away from re-consideration as host, less than 48 hours after Ellen DeGeneres made public her efforts to have Hart reinstated.
