Wonder Woman - 2018 PGA Awards Nominees

Awards season is in full swing, and today we have the Producers Guild of America announcing their nominations for the annual PGA Awards. This is one of those awards that is a good indicator of how the Academy Awards nominations are going to fall when the time comes, so a certain comic book movie getting a nomination is kind of a big deal.

The 2018 PGA nominees include the standard awards season favorites like Get Out, The Post, Lady Bird, and Call Me By Your Name. But due to a tie, the full list also features 11 total nominees, which has allowed Wonder Woman to come away with one of the nominations. Find out the rest of the nominees below. Read More »

2018 WGA nominees

At this point in awards season, we’re starting to see the same few movies pop up over and over again. Films like Call Me By Your Name, Get Out, and Lady Bird have been mainstays on the awards circuit so far, but one of the movies we haven’t seen make much of a splash for voting bodies is Logan, 2017’s superhero swan song for Wolverine. But the Writers Guild of America has taken note and nominated Logan (along with the other films mentioned above, and a handful of others) for the chance to win the best screenplay of 2017. Read the full list of nominees below.

Dunkirk - 2018 ACE Eddie Award Nominations

Even though we’re now officially into 2018, awards season continues in Hollywood. The Golden Globes are coming up this weekend and now the various guilds and organizations that represent the talented people who work behind the scenes of your favorite movies are putting forth the nominations for their own awards.

Today, it’s the American Cinema Editors announcing the nominees for their 68th ACE Eddie Awards. Like the Golden Globes, the ACE Eddie Awards divide the motion picture categories up into “dramatic” and “comedy,” which means Get Out is again strangely regarded as a comedy. Other nominees across the movie board include Dunkirk, Baby Driver and The LEGO Batman Movie. Meanwhile, television nominees include Portlandia, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones and more.

Check out the full list of the 2018 ACE Eddie Award nominations below. Read More »

i tonya trailer

As far as unlikable characters go, Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding has always been in a league of her own. She’s got a potty mouth. She’s never really cared about making friends. She’s generally just not nice. And oh yeah, she was kinda sorta involved in one of the biggest sports scandals ever — a criminal plot to literally attack the America’s sweetheart of figure skating, Nancy Kerrigan. Folks might get past the sharp tongue and cold stares, but if there is anything that will turn them off faster it is when a high-profile figure comes for the girl next door (just ask Kanye). Top that with the brazenly conservative ’90s media takedown of the supposed black sheep of figure skating, who had frizzy hair, a bad attitude, smoked, and whose mom made her costumes — all of which were strictly taboo in the elite world of pretty upper crust young women who could twirl on ice.

So Harding didn’t really stand a chance in that world, especially during that time. And it has left such a deep stain on her image that, even to this day ,she remains written off. But the new film I, Tonya sees to it that her story gets told anyway and in her own words, whether people want to hear it or not.

Margot Robbie goes for gold in her performance as the disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya.

The darkly humorous, slightly irreverent take on the Olympics story that took over gossip rags everywhere in the ’90s, I, Tonya tries to get to the “truth” of the stranger-than-fiction tale of an accomplished skater who — alongside her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan) — was accused of plotting an attack against her competitor Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver). But is truth really all that important, asks the new teaser trailer for I, Tonya?
