I roused myself at the crack of 8AM this morning, and waded through the annoying byplay of hosts Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish) and Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) to hear the announcement of the 94th OSCAR nominations and was happy to see so many of this year's best films and performances recognized by the Academy.

It's as snappy as a bunch of legos, and directed by the guy who gave us THE LEGO MOVIE, Chris McKay, here in his live-action directorial debut. But he hasn't quite figured out the connective tissue that holds human characters together, nor a live-action feature which is its own kind of organism. What we've got [...]

The movie event I live for ALL year is happening this weekend! The host-less 92nd Oscars are set to air this Sunday night, February 9 on ABC @8PM!!  I love the sartorial splendor, the rhetorical blunders, the offhand quips, and above all, Brad Pitt.

It was a notably lackluster year for movies. I searched in vain all last spring and most of the summer for something exciting, challenging, beautiful to see. It wasn't until this fall that a tidal wave of smart, absorbing, artful films were released before awards season, and I did my best to stay afloat in [...]

In one of the more entertaining Oscar nomination ceremonies in recent memory, Andy Serkis and Tiffany Haddish announced the nominations for the 90th Annual OSCARS this morning from California.
