…stay tuned

the_69th_annual_primetime_emmy_awards_posterToday’s the day, TV fans. Tonight the Emmys will honor the best in television — a challenge as much as it is an honor with the sheer volume of incredible television today. Truly the variety and quality of television available today is almost overwhelming at times, so capturing that in a single night of honors is nothing short of impossible.

And it’s expanding still. It’s hard to believe it’s only been four years since Netflix made history, becoming the first streaming service to receive an Emmy nomination. Tonight they’re going toe-to-toe with HBO to dominate the 2017 Emmys. It’s an incredible feat, to say the least.  Read the rest of this entry

…stay for the credits

2wc-film crusade

Today, crusaders, another Summer of Blockbusters comes to an end. But as with most endings, it merely means the beginning of a new chapter. In this case, it’s the start of the fall and holiday movie season, which gives us plenty to look forward to.

Still, before we say goodbye, let’s take a look back at the best, worst, and most surprising films of the summer. Read the rest of this entry

…take the stage

Happy Tony Sunday! Before we get into the predictions of the day, we wanted to take just a moment to echo a sentiment shared earlier this week. As lifelong fans of the theater, we’ve heard more than a few people express, in a variety of ways, the belief that once you see a Broadway show, other theater feels smaller.

While there’s definitely something special about a Broadway show, Tony Sunday feels like a good day to remember, the Great White Way does not have a monopoly on excellent theater. Great theater is closer than you think, so get out there and see a show!

That being said, it’s Tony Sunday which means today is all about Broadway. So, without further ado here are our picks for this year’s Tony Awards. Read the rest of this entry

…Celebrate

Happy Sunday, fellow crusaders! Today’s our birthday, so we’re keeping it short and sweet.

Birthdays have a way of making you stop and take stock, so we’d like to take a moment to thank our fellow crusaders. The 2WC wouldn’t be what it is without you. Thank you for joining us on our crusade. Read the rest of this entry

…Be Unpredictable

oscars

Happy Oscar Sunday! Or as it may come to be known, La La Landpalooza.

While tonight’s results may seem set in stone until those envelopes are opened all the nominees are still potential winners…and who knows there may even be some surprises.

Right now we can all relish in the unknown, and remember that the only certainty about tonight is that someone will win in each category and that things will get political.

Another certainty is that the 2WC will be providing you with our picks for tonight’s awards. We’re going big again this year and making picks in all 24 categories.

Full disclosure, some of the more obscure ones are based on things like the title of the film, the movie poster, or one of the nominee’s names sounding like they’d be a cool dude to hang out with.

Fair warning, it could get ugly, but that’s part of the fun, right? So, without further ado, here are our picks for the 89th Academy Awards. Read the rest of this entry
