2019 Critics’ Choice Awards: ‘Roma,’ ‘The Americans,’ ‘Mrs. Maisel’ Earn Top Prizes, Lady Gaga and Glenn Close Tie for Best Actress

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...

Trump’s AG Pick Has Repeatedly Argued That Presidents Have Broad Authority

WASHINGTON (AP) — William Barr once advised that a president didn’t need Congress’ permission to attack Iraq, that his administration could arrest a foreign dictator and that the FBI could capture suspects abroad without that country’s consent. It’s an expansive view of presidential power and an unsettling one for Democrats as the Senate holds a confirmation hearing next week for Barr, a onetime attorney general and President Donald Trump’s pick to again serve as America’s top law enforcement ...

Netflix and FX won big at the Golden Globes, while HBO stumbled

FX and Netflix both won three awards during Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony. Netflix was behind Amazon and HBO in nominations, but the latter two networks won just a single prize each.

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...

7 things people are talking about after the Golden Globes on Sunday

If you had Glenn Close winning best actress for a dramatic movie in your Golden Globes pool on Sunday step forward. Now step back and sit down because you’re lying — not even Glen Close thought her admittedly excellent work in “The Wife” would beat the likes of Lady Gaga in “A Star Is Born” or Melissa McCarthy in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” The night’s other drama categories went to the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” and star Rami Malek for his portrayal of frontman Freddie Mercury. However, we...
