Moonlight wins Best Picture

Recap of 2017 Academy Awards with GIFs!

Oh, don’t you worry. We’ll be talking about what’s probably the most awkward (and amazing) moment in Oscar history coming up here. But first…I swear these ceremonies get longer every year. And it’s not the speeches! It’s the bits! Like it’s one thing for a host to have a few bits (though Jimmy Kimmel did have A LOT of bits that could’ve and should’ve been cut), but does every presenter need to make sassy small talk? No. And come on, Hollywood. You do this on Sunday night before everyone has to wake up early? Ugh. Continue reading “Recap of 2017 Academy Awards with GIFs!”

Moonlight (2016)

2017 Academy Awards Predictions

Well, the 89th Annual Academy Awards are this Sunday, so we talked predictions on Pat & JT this morning (You can listen to the podcast here). I’m confident in my “Big Six” picks—that is, Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. However, I’m a little iffy on awards like Sound Editing and Sound Mixing, which always throw me for a loop. Check out the full list of nominees here, and we’ll talk predictions below!

2017 Academy Awards Nominations

After dominating the 2017 Golden Globes, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that La La Land scooped up the most 2017 Academy Award nominations, followed by Moonlight. Of course, there’s been La La Land backlash since the Globes (i.e., It’s another movie about white people falling in love. It’s a movie about jazz that doesn’t feature people of color prominently. It’s not better than Moonlight). But Hollywood loves movies about Hollywood, so here we are.

Jimmy Fallon at the Golden Globes 2017

Recap of 2017 Golden Globes with GIFs!

Despite a fun cold open, the 2017 Golden Globes was, well, a stinker. And the source of the stink? Jimmy Fallon. Last night officially made it clear that Fallon is only funny when he’s playing off of other people. When it’s just him by himself, yikes. His opening monologue was garbage, and his jokes between awards were garbage. He even had Questlove onstage with him, yet that didn’t help improve his bits or spark some energy in the show. Oh, and Jimmy, if you’re going to do Chris Rock impressions, please remember… Continue reading “Recap of 2017 Golden Globes with GIFs!”

2017 Golden Globe Predictions

The Golden Globes are tonight, and Jimmy Fallon will be hosting, which is kind of perfect considering he’s the king of cheesy drinking games with celebrities, and the Globes are a cheesy, drunken shitshow for celebrities (I miss Tina & Amy). Anyway, let’s make some predictions! I usually only do films, but since I watched quite a bit of TV this year, I’ve decided to predict those as well. Continue reading “2017 Golden Globe Predictions”

How Is 2017 Awards Season Here Already?!

Once again, limited film releases have screwed me over—hence my “Oh, shit” reaction to the 2017 Golden Globe nominations that came out today. I haven’t seen most of the films on this list because most aren’t wide releases until the end of December or beginning of January. Weirdly, I think I’ve seen more of the nominated TV shows this year. But who cares because it’s the Golden Globes, and they’re the worst. Just wait until the Screen Actors Guild nominations, which come out…WEDNESDAY?! Son of a bitch. Fine, let’s do the things.
