‘The Twilight Zone’ Reboot Will Compete in Drama Category for Emmys, But There’s One Complication

CBS All Access isn’t exactly overflowing with must-see content, with Star Trek Discovery and The Good Fight being the only two original hits in their library. But since The Twilight Zone reboot came along, plenty more people have been flocking to the streaming subscription service, and the show is bound to end up with some Emmy nominations later this year, but not in the category you might think. Unlike other anthology shows that have landed accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Scie...

The Oscars May Be Host-Less Again Next Year

The winners of the 2019 Oscars may have been some of the most disappointing choices, but at least no one was disappointed by the ceremony. In fact, this year’s ceremony was almost enjoyable, running briskly and without a hitch thanks to one central factor: No host. And it’s a format that the Oscars ceremony may repeat next year. The lack of an Oscars host at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony happened by accident, after original host Kevin Hart stepped down following the resurfacing of homopho...

Opinion: Siobhan Kenny on future radio talent and the Young ARIAs

Siobhan Kenny, CEO of Radiocentre writes for RadioToday about the thousands of children making radio across the UK and the launch of the Young ARIAs. “The thing about radio is, it makes you go ‘ha’.”  Words of wisdom from Josh Ryan, producer at BBC Sounds, at a recent joyful event in the BBC Radio Theatre.  Radio does make you smile, it can make you cry, or simply create light moments to start or finish the day.  It’s not rocket science, that’s why it remains popular, even with elusive young...

The Best and Worst Moments of the 2019 Academy Awards

Another year, another Oscars. Another Oscars, another pile of victories to celebrate…and to moan about for the next 12 months. Yep, nothing riles up movie fans quite like the Academy Awards, which have a habit of driving cinephiles absolutely crazy and delighting them in equal measure. The 2019 edition was no different, with the ceremony rotating between “Well, that was deserved!” and “What the hell were they thinking?!” on an award-by-award basis. So let’s break it down.

Rolex Had the Best Oscars Commercials with James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Kathryn Bigelow & Alejandro G. Iñárritu

Millions of eyes were on the Academy Awards last night, and even though the live broadcast of Hollywood’s biggest event doesn’t pull in as many viewers as the Super Bowl, it’s still a hot spot for advertising. While there were some TV spots for the likes of Captain Marvel, The Lion King and Rocketman, the one set of commercials that stole the show came from a collaboration between the Oscars and the watchmaker Rolex. Rolex is one of the many sponsors and supporters of the Academy Awards, and th...

2019 Oscars Winners: ‘Green Book’ Wins Best Picture, But Alfonso Cuarón Takes Best Director

The 91st Academy Awards aired live on ABC last night, and the ceremony went surprisingly smoothly without a host to lead the way. In fact, this might be the best way to do the Oscars from now on. But you didn’t come here for chatter about the ceremony itself. You just want to know the 2019 Oscars winners, and those who came away with a trophy certainly made for some surprising moments, for better or worse. Green Book walked away with Best Picture, even though director Alfonso Cuarón won Best Di...

2019 Indie Spirit Awards Winners: ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ Finally Gets The Love It Deserves

The 2019 Independent Spirit Awards were last night, honoring the best in independent cinema before Hollywood gathers for the Academy Awards. Even though some movies that ended up nominated for Oscars took home trophies last night, the best thing to come out of the 2019 Indie Spirit Awards winners was the love shown to If Beale Street Could Talk. The film from Barry Jenkins movie that didn’t get anywhere near the amount of accolades it deserved from the Academy Awards, but last night it took hom...

2019 Razzies Winners: ‘Holmes & Watson’ Named Worst Picture, Melissa McCarthy Wins & Loses Too

This weekend we have both the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards honoring the best in film from the year 2018. But before that, the Golden Raspberry Awards needed to announce the 2019 Razzies winners (or losers depending on how you look at it). This year, the “honors” for Worst Picture went to the disastrous reteaming of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in Holmes & Watson. The awful comedy took home four of the awards, but the bullshit antics of Donald J. Trump and his circus cabin...

Vue Cinemas in the UK Childishly Threatens to Boycott BAFTAs for Rewarding ‘Roma’

Vue Cinemas is one of the biggest movie theater chains in the United Kingdom, and they are not happy with the BAFTAs, the British equivalent of the Oscars. The British organization gave Alfonso Cuarón‘s movie Roma plenty of recognition, including the coveted award for Best Film. But since it’s a Netflix movie, Vue Cinemas is crying foul. In fact, they’re so mad about the situation that they’re threatening to pull support from the BAFTAs if they continue to support the streaming service’s endeav...

The Oscars 2019 Honest Trailer: Which Best Picture Winner Will Upset People This Year?

This weekend brings the 91st Academy Awards to ABC, and it’s probably going to be a complete disaster. Not only is there no host for the ceremony, but The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences pissed everyone off by cutting a few awards from the live broadcast (only to reinstate them in the show). On top of that, they’ve had a real problem figuring out how the nominees for Best Original Song were going to be performed during the ceremony too. But the Oscars are really about rewarding the ...

10 Animated Movies That Should Have Been Nominated for Best Picture

Poor Spider-Man got snubbed. Where is the 2018 Academy Award for Best Picture nod for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ? Sometimes a Best Animated Feature Film nomination by the Academy Awards isn’t enough. Spider-Man: Into the Verse broke technological ground, unraveled many multidimensional themes, set a precedence for the quality of superhero films, successfully borrowed the old, injected adrenaline into every combat scene, exploded with kinetic eclecticism, and celebrated the unive...

The Case for a Stunts and Choreography Oscar

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: it’s time for the Academy to create a Stunts and Choreography award.) It’s Oscar season, which means all the annual traditions and reheated previously-hot takes are in full effect. The Academy as an institution has many faults, and it’s worth criticising them even as it attempts to improve (with mixed success). One of the most popular criticisms, amongst po...
