Contest: Win Copies Of The Oscar-Nominated Films ‘I, Tonya’ And ‘Get...

The Oscars have come and gone. The trophies have been collected and acceptance speeches have been made. And everyone now knows what an “inclusion rider” is, thanks to Frances McDormand. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t take a moment to recognize two of 2017’s best films and offer a chance for three lucky winners to […]

New Oscar Rules For 2019: Lessons From ‘Shape Of Water’s’ Triumph...

This year.  Just when you thought Hollywood and award season will take a breather after two years of dramatic twists and turns an earthquake hits the industry that has caused global aftershocks that aren’t going to subside anytime soon.  The #MeToo movement saw prominent Oscar figures such as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Brett Ratner […]

‘Get Out’ And The New Perspective In Horror

Sitting in a dim theatre, about to watch a horror film, we have certain expectations. The tropes and cliches we’ve become accustomed to have even been referenced in recent, contemporary horror films. But it is the most inventive films creating different circumstances for audience engagement that ultimately stick with us. A change in perspective is […]

The 2018 Oscars By The Numbers

Now that the quartz miners of the planet Christophsis have been sent in to dismantle the blingiest Oscar stage ever, now that they’re rolling up the Red Carpet where Taraji P Henson MAYBE shaded Ryan Seacrest (she’s subsequently denied it but tea sure looked piping hot to me), now that the glamor has dissipated, Spanx […]

2018 Academy Awards: See The Full List Of Oscar Winners Here

With a history-making group of nominees, the 90th Academy Awards is finally here. Jimmy Kimmel hosts the telecast which will be filled with hopefully nothing but surprises and a mercifully reasonable length. Guillermo del Toro‘s fantasy romance “The Shape of Water” leads the evening with 13 nominations. “Dunkirk” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” follow closely behind with eight and […]

Best And Worst Of The 2018 Spirit Awards: ‘Get Out,’ Greta...

The floor was so wet presenters and winner slipped getting on the stage and the food served was arguably the worst it’s ever been, but there was a lot to enjoy at the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards Saturday afternoon.  The mammoth Film Independent membership found a way to spread the wealth so almost every major […]

‘Get Out’ Wins Best Picture: Full List Of 2018 Independent Spirit...

Awards season is almost (finally) at an end. The Independent Spirit Awards are indie film’s biggest night and hosts Nick Kroll and John Mulaney made the show a ton of fun. There was a plea to indie film stars to stay indie, Frances McDormand cussing a bunch, an opening monologue that celebrated indie film, and […]

2018 Oscar Predictions Are Framed By An Incredibly Close Best Picture...

This has been one of the most dramatic awards season in recent memory. Think about that for a moment. Just two years ago the Academy received a social media slap in the face as #OscarsSoWhite pushed the organization to make dramatic changes to its membership. The 2017 season was flipped upside down when presumptive frontrunner […]

‘Get Out’ Will Win Best Film & Other 2018 Independent Spirit...

The first rule of predicting the Independent Spirit Awards is to always chose the contender that is from the film that is the biggest box office hit among the nominees. It sounds silly and simplistic, but when you look back at the winners this decade it usually holds true to form 80% of the time. […]

Breaking Down Oscar’s Tight Three-Way Race For Best Picture

It’s hard for anyone to complain that we’re in for another boring Oscar telecast when faced with the fact this year’s Best Picture race is literally going down to the wire.  Voting is over.  The ballots are in, but unlike last year where everyone expected an easy “La La Land” win only to be happily […]

Jordan Peele, Daniel Kaluuya & More Talk Changing The Darker Original...

A year ago, “Get Out” was simply a smash hit, horror sensation. Twelve months later, its astonishing journey has brought the picture to the Oscars, where it has four nominations, in some very major categories: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. But as it goes with so many great movies, none […]

Jordan Peele Explains How ‘Get Out’ Script Change Reshaped The Film

With the Writer’s Guild of America having handed out the 2018 WGA screenplay award to “Get Out,” many are now expecting the Jordan Peele penned social satire to win the Best Original Screenplay Oscar come March 4th. The film was released almost one year ago to this day and it was almost impossible to think […]

‘Get Out’ Returns To AMC Theaters For President’s Day

That Writer’s Guild of America award sure helped build back momentum for what, quite frankly was, the movie of the year: Jordan Peele‘s “Get Out.” Yes, Peele’s film is in contention for Best Picture, and it’s my dark horse pick to win come Oscar evening. To say the movie is important would be an understatement. […]
