Hey Netflix and Amazon- No Change to The Academy’s Streaming Eligibility Rules

It would appear that streaming giant Netflix maintain the ability to have their films be eligible for Oscar consideration, according to a new vote from the Academy. Perhaps you’ll recall the big stink raised when Alfonso Cuarón‘s ROMA, which was released both theatrically and on Netflix, was nominated in all the major categories and won several of […]


Sir Elton John, Taron Egerton Duet on ‘Tiny Dancer’ Post-Oscars

Sir Elton John‘s annual AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party took a musical turn with Taron Egerton joining the legend on stage for a duet on “Tiny Dancer”. Egerton is playing John in an upcoming biopic from Dexter Fletcher, who stepped in to complete Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody following the firing of then-and-still-credited director Bryan Singer. Written by Lee Hall, Rocketman will cover […]

In Praise Of… Olivia Colman

So Olivia Colman, Oscar winner, and a big one too, Best Actress for The Favourite. She was already lining up to be our new National Treasure, this has now pushed her over the line. There’s lots of radio comedy. I just discovered the other day a BBC Radio 4 sitcom she starred in as about […]

Ladies and Gentlemen, the 2019 Academy Awards Winners List [Oscars]

The 91st Annual Academy Awards just completed in Los Angeles, handing out the golden Oscars statues to the chosen recipients of the various categories celebrating the best of the past year in film, performance, and achievement. With no host this year, the telecast did pretty well time-wise; the various presenters did their duties and ushered […]


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). There are 4 categories total that have been deemed unworthy of the general broadcast awards and we’re kind of surprised- […]

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. Earlier this week, The Atlantic published an expose about the filmmaker which included additional allegations of impropriety, namely alleged unwilling intimate advances by Singer towards then-underage young men. It’s a tough read, but The Atlantic claims to have undergone months of research and background before publishing the […]

Entertainment Weekly Celebrates ‘Black Panther’: 7 Oscar Nominations for Wakanda

Marvel Studios garnered a total of 8 nominations, as Avengers: Infinity War netted one for Best Visual Effects. Entertainment Weekly just shared their beautiful cover celebrating Black Panther‘s Oscar noms– The editorial is a beautiful celebration of […]

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 […]

‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Directors React to Oscar Nomination

How great was Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse?! So great it garnered a Best Animated Feature Oscar nomination for the 2019 Academy Awards. Spider-Verse directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman spoke with Entertainment Weekly shortly after the nominations were read this morning (which you can read here): Entertainment Weekly: Historically, the Oscars have tended to […]

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. The scene in particular that had everyone talking when the Golden Globe nominations came out (which […]

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 […]

Oscars 2019: No Hosts This Year; Rob Lowe, Snow White Not Available For Comment

Looks like The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and Kevin Hart are finally on the same page about something… Following up on actor/comedian Hart’s comments on ABC‘s Good Morning America Wednesday morning confirming he would not host the 2019 Academy Awards, AMPAS has announced that it will be going without a host – […]

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. As if there’s any such thing as “definitive” in the entertainment industry… But this time there might just be, as actor/comedian Kevin […]
