batman v superman reactions

Whenever we talk about the Golden Raspberry Awards, alternatively known as the Razzies and A Cheap Exercise in Snark That Doesn’t Actually Go After the Worst Movies of the Year But Rather the Most Obvious Punching Bags, it’s important to remember that these “awards” are the worst. With that said, Zoolander 2 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice led the 2017 Razzie nominations.

deadpool oscar campaign

Oh, to be on the internet in 2008, when The Dark Knight was released and everyone decided that this was Peak Superhero Movie and that it was going to shatter that last barrier and get nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. And while Christopher Nolan’s (still pretty great!) Batman sequel did get its fair share of Oscar nods, it was shut out of the top prize. Oh, to be on the internet in early 2009, when all of the nerds lost their damn minds in the general direction of Academy voters.

With a few noteworthy exceptions (i.e., James Cameron movies), Academy voters have traditionally relegated more mainstream movies to technical categories. Comic book movies, by their very nature, don’t break through. So the fact that I’m writing a news post about Deadpool‘s Oscar chances blows my brain right out the back of my skull.

2017 pga nominations

One of the big surprises of this awards season so far has been Deadpool‘s emergence as the scrappy little superhero movie that could. While its Golden Globe nomination wasn’t entirely unexpected, its Writers Guild nomination raised a few eyebrows. And now the Merc’s managed to wrangle himself a Producers Guild nomination as well.

Otherwise, it’s business as usual for the PGA nominations, which also went to favorites like La La Land and Moonlight. See the full list of 2017 PGA nominations below.  Read More »

2017 Golden Globes Opening

Last night, Hollywood got drunk as hell and received Golden Globes from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. You can get the full list of the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards winners right here, but if you missed the ceremony last night, then you missed out on a rather delightful opening musical number led by ceremony host Jimmy Fallon.

Inspired by several of the musical sequences from La La Land, the opening number features Jimmy Fallon and a long line of Hollywood’s finest singing and dancing through all the big movies and TV shows of 2016. And for all you Stranger Things fans out there, you’ll be happy to see one of your favorite characters make a surprise comeback.

2017 Golden Globes Winners

The 74th annual Golden Globe Awards have come and gone, and we have a list of all the winners that were announced last night. La La Land took home every single award it was nominated for, setting a new record for the most Golden Globes won by a single film with seven trophies on its shelf. But Moonlight took home Best Motion Picture Drama, which could make it an upset by the time the Oscars roll around.

There were plenty of surprises from last night’s awards, especially on the TV side, so check out the full 2017 Golden Globes winners list after the jump. Read More »

DEADPOOL

By this point in the season, we’ve got a rough idea of how the awards race is shaping up. La La Land, Moonlight, and Manchester by the Sea are already looking like Oscar frontrunners despite the fact that the actual Oscar nominations won’t be announced for another few weeks, and films with that kind of momentum tend to rack up a whole bunch of other prizes on the way. So of course all three have been nominated for the Writers Guild Awards, along with some of the other usual suspects like Fences and Arrival.

But every once in a while, the universe likes to throw us for a loop. Today, a big surprise has come bursting in through the fourth wall to curse up a storm. Yup, Deadpool has managed to snag a Best Adapted Screenplay nom at the WGAs, beating out more expected contenders like SilenceSully, and Hacksaw Ridge. Find the full list of 2017 WGA nominations below.  Read More »

Carrie Fisher Tribute to Debbie Reynolds

This week delivered the tragic one-two punch that was the death of actress and writer Carrie Fisher, followed by the death of her classic screen icon mother Debbie Reynolds just one day later. The two women made huge waves in the entertainment industry and won’t soon be forgotten thanks to their place in the history of cinema and television.

We’ve already seen countless colleagues and friends pay tribute to Carrie Fisher, and we remembered the actress’ irresistible charm by way of a series of videos showing her blunt, candid sense of humor. Now it’s time to watch Carrie Fisher honor her late mother as only a daughter can when the Singin’ in the Rain star was presented with a Lifetime Achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last year.

best original score shortlist

Johann Johannsson’s (Sicario) heart pounding Arrival score was disqualified as a contender in the Best Original Score category. The Academy deemed Leslie Barber‘s Manchester by the Sea and Kathryn Kluge’s Silence scores ineligible as well. They were ruled out for not being “substantial enough,” but the exclusion of Arrival had to do with Max Richter‘s “This Bitter Earth.”

Below, check out the best original score shortlist.
