The members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences know all about the filmed version of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Hamilton on Disney+, but when it comes to whether or not the movie will be eligible for Oscars at next year’s ceremony, the Academy rule-makers will, to quote one of the musical’s songs, say no to this.

‘Greyhound’ Review: Tom Hanks’ World War II Dad Movie is a Bit of a Dud

Tom Hanks’ obsession with quiet, persistent heroism first became truly evident with Apollo 13 . That 1995 film is a thrilling piece of real-life drama, in which there are no real villains and heroism is embodied by good, honorable men doing good, honorable work, both in outer space and on the ground. There’s not a lot of flash or flamboyance in the film, nor in subsequent history-driven miniseries and films either starring or overseen by Hanks, from Band of Brothers to Saving Private ...

How ‘Hamilton’ Director Thomas Kail Translated the Stage Sensation to the Screen [Interview]

The hip-hop musical about American Founding Father Alexander was (aptly) hailed as revolutionary, and to bear witness to its meteoric rise was amazing. But only a select few could actually get to witness the mag...
