It’s here, crusaders! Oscar Sunday is here!
It’s been quite the journey and if the history of this award season has taught us anything, it’s far from over.
This year, Jimmy Kimmel gets a chance at hosting redemption, and the Oscars get a chance at changing its image in the midst of a transformational awards season.
Heading into its 90th ceremony the Academy is already pushing its boundaries (which frankly does not take much when your boundaries are very, very, very narrow). Read the rest of this entry
Happy Golden Globes Sunday!
The time has arrived for us to put forth our predictions. Hollywood’s biggest party will have a decidedly sterner tone than usual as actresses (and we expect most actors too) will take to the red carpet in black in recognition and support of #MeToo and #TimesUp.

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
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
