Jimmy Kimmel Hosting 2018 Oscars

This year’s Academy Awards were hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who delivered as much entertainment as he could during the extensive ceremony. Of course, all of that ended up being overshadowed by the Best Picture snafu that falsely gave the award to La La Land before it correctly went to Moonlight. But Jimmy Kimmel will get another chance to shine at the next Oscars telecast.

ABC and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced today that we’ll see Jimmy Kimmel returning to host the 90th Academy Awards next year. Find out what the comedian had to say about his return to the Oscars stage in 2018. Read More »

top 10 movies of 2016 oj made in america

One of the biggest film-related arguments of the past year was whether or not Ezra Edelman’s superlative documentary O.J.: Made in America should have been eligible for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. There were passionate advocates on both sides, and the nearly eight-hour doc ended up winning the Oscar.

foreign language oscar

Complaining about the Academy Awards is the national pastime of many movie fans, but let’s not forget that they can do good. Sometimes. After all, the Foreign Language Film Oscar helps bring international cinema to the attention of casual filmgoers who otherwise wouldn’t venture outside of Hollywood filmmaking. Like with any awards category, great films get snubbed and the lesser entries often triumph over masterpieces (we’re still sore about Ruben Ostlund’s brilliant Force Majeure not even getting a nomination last year), but at least this category represents a window into a much wider world of filmmaking.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released the full list of every movie eligible for the Foreign Language Film Oscar this year. The full list, numbering 82 entries, can be scanned at your leisure after the jump.

Oprah Lego Oscar

Update: The Lego Oscar is now open to votes at the Lego Ideas site. Click here to learn more and support the cause. Original story follows.

It’s a rare honor to receive a little gold man at the Academy Awards. It’s an even rarer one to receive a little gold man made out of Lego bricks. Think about it: Whereas thousands of Oscars have been handed out over the decades, including several dozen just last night, maybe a few dozen Lego Oscars have ever been given out at the ceremony, all of them last night.

But if you weren’t one of the lucky few to pick up a Lego Oscar last night, don’t worry — you can always make your own. A video shows how the Lego Oscars came together. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

Neil Patrick Harris Is Your 2015 Oscars Host

Neil Patrick Harris hosting Tonys

Hosting an awards show might not sound terribly difficult on paper, but as we’ve seen from many, many lackluster efforts, it’s tough to get right in practice. So for the 2015 Oscars, the Academy is turning to a guy with plenty of experience: Neil Patrick Harris.

While this will be Harris’ first time ever hosting this particular ceremony, he’s already earned high praise for his stints emceeing the Tonys (four times) and the Emmys (twice). More on the 2015 Oscars host after the jump, including an utterly charming announcement video from Harris himself.
