The music stars turned out for the 2020 Grammy Awards, but a few movie stars got their time to shine on music’s biggest night.

The night’s biggest winner, disruptive pop force Billie Eilish, swept the top awards just as she prepares to be the youngest Bond theme song singer.

1917 - Sam Mendes

Continuing the march towards the Academy Awards, director Sam Mendes won another key award for his work on the war drama 1917, making it likely that he’ll end up with a little golden man when the Oscars winners are unveiled next month. The Director’s Guild of America announced the winners of their annual awards, and Mendes took home the top prize for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film. But it wasn’t the only award the 1917 earned this weekend. Read More »

Parasite

Last weekend, the 2020 SAG Awards honored achievements in acting in both film and television from last year. When it comes to the film side of the awards, there weren’t really any surprises, at least not until the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture was handed out.

1917 interview actors

This weekend, the 31st Producer’s Guild Awards honored achievements in producing film and television from last year. This is one of the key awards that start to give us an idea of what movie is likely to take home Best Picture when the Oscars are handed out, so everyone was waiting to see what movie won The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, the equivalent of Best Picture among the 2020 PGA Awards winners.

In a turn that was a little less surprising after its victory at the Golden Globes a couple weeks ago, Sam Mendes‘ war drama 1917 landed the top prize. But who walked away with awards for animated and documentary features, as well as all the television awards? Get the full list of 2020 PGA Awards winners below. Read More »

Netflix Best Picture Nominees

Here we go again. In what is becoming a tradition, AMC and Regal Theater chains are refusing to screen Netflix’s Best Picture nominees, because that’s just how they roll. The chains typically do a showcase of Best Picture nominees in which they bring the nominated movies back to theaters, but the two Netflix titles – The Irishman and Marriage Story – won’t be included. The same thing happened last year with Netflix’s Roma.

Best Movie for Grownups Award

This just in: old people love The Irishman! I know these days we all like to sit around and say “Okay, boomer!” at the olds, but in this case, let’s all agree they got something right. The AARP’s 19th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards were held over the weekend, and Martin Scorsese‘s mob epic claimed the top honor. They also gave Adam Sandler Best Actor – a category the Academy didn’t even bother to nominate him in this year. Maybe we should all just ignore the Oscars this year and focus on the AARP. They might be on to something.

The Oscar nominations are here, which means it’s time to be alternately enraged and excited. But whatever your personal opinion about who was snubbed and who snuck in a surprise nomination, the Oscars are all about celebrating movies and not reducing them into mere numbers like some kind of horse race, right? Sure! But let’s take a look at those numbers for a second, and see what kind of records were set, which were broken, and which didn’t even become a factor at the 2o20 Oscars.
