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” ...

Rotten Tomatometers and Metacritic aggregation can only show a sliver of what critics think about films, but the Critics Choice Awards is the definitive proof. The Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association bestowed their annual Critics’ Choice Awards to the best in movies and TV over the past year, awarding a few festival and awards circuit favorites while mostly passing over The Favourite, despite the Yorgos Lanthimos film’s 14 nods — the most of any f...

Opinion: What 'Vice' gets wrong about Cheney

"Vice," the new Dick Cheney biopic, earned Christian Bale a Golden Globe for his portrayal of the former vice president. The filmmakers' decision to portray Cheney as a one-dimensional character devoid of values, however, obscures the complexities of a wide range of issues -- such as the limits of executive authority, the propriety of military intervention, the role of the United States in the world and the ethics of power.

Adam McKay Details Another ‘Vice’ Deleted Scene Featuring Young Dick Cheney

Vice just hit theaters before the end of 2018, and with awards season in full swing, we’ve got at least two or three months until the movie arrives on home video. But when it does, it will feature a couple of key scenes that didn’t make the final cut. Director Adam McKay has already talked about a certain musical sequence that would have added to the satirical meta nature of the movie, but it turns out Vice almost had a flashback sequence featuring a young Dick Cheney and future wife Lynne Vinc...

Cheney: Bale Could’ve ‘Finally’ Played ‘A Real Superhero’ But He ‘Screwed It Up’

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), used her interview on Fox News to take another swing at actor Christian Bale, who played her father in a new biopic film on his vice presidency. “Well, look, I would just say  that Christian Bale finally had  the chance to play a real  superhero, and he clearly  screwed it up,” she said, a double entendre insult given Bale’s most famous role as Batman in the Batman films. “ I’m, obviously, incredibly proud  of m...

Big shakeup at The Golden Globes last night.

I used to care. I used to minute-by-minute blog the whole show, but now I haven't seen any of the movies, and there's nothing that can't wait until the next morning. What used to take hours is now accomplished in a couple minutes of reading. But I have one question. Why were "A Star Is Born" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the "Drama" category? The Golden Globes have a "Musical or Comedy" category, and these 2 movies seem awfully musical.From the Daily Mail article: "No doubt many were surprised by t...
