This year’s Oscar nominations indicate what has changed in Hollywood, and what hasn’t

Did the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences solve any of its numerous problems with Tuesday’s announcement of its 91st Oscar nominees? Yes, in some ways; maybe or maybe not, in others. Foremost this year, the Best Picture (voted on by all academy members) and different branch (selected by voters from their particular job categories) nominees indicate that recent efforts to diversify and broaden the group have had their strongest impact on the Oscar field yet. The Mexican art film “Roma” ...

Celebrity Doppelgängers That'll Make You Do A Double Take

Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage. It's almost eerie how much some celebrities resemble each other. Just look at the star of Netflix's Sex Education, British actress Maeve Wiley — she looks just like Margot Robbie. Enough so that when you Google her name, Margot Robbie's name pops up right after it. But these two actresses both share high cheekbones, they aren't related at all, and probably haven't even met (yet.) Yet, the two of them could easily share a passport or star in a madcap series of...

7 Things We Learned from the ‘Office Space’ Oral History

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the cult favorite comedy Office Space. The movie bombed spectacularly at the box office with just under $11 million made in its entire domestic run. That was barely enough to cover the film’s budget. But against all odds, the movie found a big audience on home video and cable and has since become one of the most quoted and beloved comedies of the ’90s. Since this year is a milestone anniversary for Office Space, writer/director Mike Judge, cast members Ro...

This Week in Photography Books: Paris Visone

  I haven’t spent much time in Massachusetts. It’s true. Sure, I went there once or twice as a kid. Saw the Faneuil Hall. Probably ate some clam chowder. Went to a Red Sox game. But that was so long ago I barely remember it. There’s lots of red brick in Boston, right? I visited Northampton a few times when my wife was in graduate school, but even that was 20 years ago. And Northampton is its own little enclave, like Los Alamos in New Mexico. Most of what I know of Massachusetts comes from popula...

Armie Hammer’s ‘Justice League Mortal’ Batman Would’ve Been “Truly Psychotic”

You may not know this, but Armie Hammer came very close to playing Batman in George Miller‘s never-made Justice League Mortal. We’ll never know if Hammer would’ve made a good Batman or not, but now we know how he would’ve portrayed the character – as a psychotic. According to Hammer, he really wanted to lean into how freakin’ nuts it is to have a billionaire running around dressed as a giant bat. Back in the early 2000s, Mad Max Fury Road director George Miller came incredibly close to makin...

The Best Movies For Getting Over Your Ex

Listen. Our goal here is simple: to help you curate the perfect Rolodex of movies that will help you deal if or when things with your loved one fall apart. And, to help us in our quest for catharsis, we’ve consulted the very academic Kübler-Ross model of handling grief, which divides the process into five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance (because, above all else, we here at Refinery29 are nothing if not academics, of course).There are many different types of breakup...
