FIVE MOST MEMORABLE OSCAR MOMENTS: 2020 EDITION

The 92nd Academy Awards show is the biggest night of the year for everyone who loves films and the people who make them. Here are the five most memorable Oscar moments from last night's show, conveying the richly-varied flavor of the star-studded event. Janelle Monae (Harriet) kicked things off with an elaborate production number that celebrated diversity and some of last year's best films. Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig hilariously 'auditioned' for possible future roles in their introduction of awards for Production Design and Costume Design. Laura Dern's acceptance speech was heartfelt and moving, paying tribute to people in her life who are really important. James Corden and Rebel Wilson, who appeared together in the big-screen musical Cats, introduced the Visual Effects award in

Oscars2020, ‘Parasite’ wins the best picture

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In a milestone win that instantly expanded the Oscars’ horizons, Bong Joon Ho’s masterfully devious class satire “Parasite” became the first non-English language film to win the best picture in the 92-year history of the Academy Awards. “Parasite” took Hollywood’s top prize on Sunday night, along with awards for best director, best international film and best screenplay. In a year dominated by period epics — “1917,” “Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood,” “The Irishman” — the film academy instead went overseas, to South Korea, to reward a contemporary and unsettling portrait of social inequality in “Parasite.” True to its name, “Parasite” simply got under the skin of Oscar voters, attaching itself to the American awards season and,

Oscars 2020 result: Parasite sweeps, while Netflix loses out on pretty much everything

Netflix headed into the 92nd Oscars with 24 nominations — the most of any studio — expecting to dominate award season’s biggest night the same way it’s dominated the entertainment industry. Instead, Netflix walked away with practically zilch. The streamer made out with just two awards: Best Documentary for American Factory (produced by President Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company) and Best Supporting Actress for Laura Dern. Its biggest films — The Irishman and The Two Popes — all went home empty-handed. Only just a week prior, Netflix’s studio chief Ted Sarandos rebuked claims that its lack of awards at previous award shows is part of a “backlash to a tech giant that is upending entertainment-industry business practices and threatening Hollywood power

Issa Rae on Oscars’ All-Male Best Director Nominees

If the Oscars are waking enough to have two actors of color announce the 2020 nominations, they should’ve known someone was gonna clap back about their decidedly un-woke list of nominees. Issa Rae and John Cho had the honor of announcing which white men had been nominated for the Academy Awards Monday morning. Everything was going great until the Best Director category reared its ugly head. Rae read off the nominees for Best Director: Bong Joon Ho for Parasite, Sam Mendes, Todd Phillips, Martin Scorsese, and Quentin Tarantino for their movies about white people. Before moving to the next category, Issa Rae gave a not-so-warm “Congratulations to those men,” a play on Keke Palmer’s “Sorry to this man” and an

Screen Actors Guild Awards make history as ‘Parasite’ claims its top prize

"Parasite" became the first foreign-language movie to win SAG's coveted best ensemble prize on Sunday night, capping a 26th annual ceremony that otherwise closely followed the script in terms of the individual victories. The event's most surprising element might have been the acceptance speeches, which were virtually devoid of politics, other than Robert De Niro's remarks in receiving a lifetime achievement honor. The win for "Parasite" broke up what had been a night that saw people of color entirely overlooked, as the industry comes under increased scrutiny for a lack of diversity in its awards. "I'm so honored to receive this award in front of such amazing actors that I admire. I will never forget this beautiful night," cast member Song Kang Ho

Oscar Nominations Predictions 2020

At long last, it’s time to predict the Oscar nominations. Well not exactly at long last. In truth, this Oscar season has been one of the shortest in history. The Golden Globes were last Sunday, and yet the Oscars ceremony takes place in less than a month. That shortened window has added a sense of urgency to the mix as contenders vie for the spotlight on an abbreviated timeline. Perhaps that’s why we haven’t seen too much in the way of negative campaigning or shocking falls from major contenders. There simply isn’t time, and everyone’s focused on making the best case for their individual film and performances. Which has made for an interesting race in a number of categories.
