Oscars Hosting, Super Bowl Halftime, White House Dinner — Why Have Big-Name Entertainers Started Turning Down The Biggest Gigs?

Kevin hart blew his chance at the Oscars, and nobody wants to replace him; Rihanna and Cardi B both passed on the Super Bowl; the White House Correspondents’ Dinner has become so fraught that they’ve asked a historian to MC. These jobs have always been dangerous (look at the blowback if you say the wrong thing), but the opportunity used to be worth the risk. Here’s why that’s no longer the case. — The Guardian

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” ...

Worst job in showbiz: why will no one touch the world's glitziest gigs?

The Oscars have no host, Rihanna turned down the Super Bowl, and the White House dinner will be MC’d by a historian. What’s behind the sudden demise of entertainment’s biggest jobs?The loss of the Oscars’ latest host is, on the one hand, just another mishap to add to the list. From 2016’s #OscarsSoWhite to 2017’s wrong delivery of the best picture award, the ceremony now seems like a particularly slow bloopers reel. Yet the loss of Kevin Hart – who quit after old homophobic tweets resurfaced – i...

‘Aquaman’ Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide But Loses Fourth Weekend to ‘The Upside’

Aquaman has only been in theaters around the world for over a month, but the blockbuster comic book movie has already crossed the $1 billion mark.

However, even though Aquaman now has over $1.02 billion for its worldwide box office haul, the past weekend’s domestic haul...

The Upside and the Downside of ‘The Upside’: An Analysis From a Disabled Writer

Putting it bluntly, it’s difficult to get excited anytime Hollywood wants to trot out a narrative on disabilities nowadays, especially as someone born and living with Muscular Dystrophy Type 2. They are stubbornly set on staying the feel-good course without necessarily saying anything meaningful or relevant. If you thought Green Book had nothing but safe and obvious observations, tackling race relations with the force of bopping someone on the head with your finger, well, the disabled community...

Keanu Reeves' new movie 'Replicas' is the biggest box-office flop of his career

Keanu Reeves' new movie "Replicas" opened over the weekend and only took in $2.5 million. That's a career worst for the actor.   It turns out "Replicas" was as bad as everyone anticipated.  Keanu Reeves' new movie — in which he plays a scientist who attempts to use biological cloning to bring his family back to life after they died in a car crash — did a paltry $2.5 million over the weekend on just over 2,300 screens. That's the worst opening weekend for any Reeves movie that has opened on ov...
