SAG Awards: Biggest Surprises and Snubs for 2022 Nominations

Awards season is upon us! It technically started with some of the smaller critics awards, and the mainstream season kicked off with the Golden Globes. But given how controversial the Globes are despite their small moves towards change, most of us have all but written off the show altogether. The SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards […]

Prediction: Likely Best Actress Oscar Nominations

If we’re being honest, this category has the potential to sport the widest array of performances. Everything from clear, sure fire bets to win it all in Olivia Coleman, to a surprising turn as a legitimate actress in Kristen Stewart, to newcomers in Alana Haim and yes, all the way to probably underserved by academy […]

Prediction: Likely Best Support Actor Nominations

Similar to the Best Supporting Actress category, these predictions for nominees always present a challenge. What actually qualifies a best supporting role? It seems to rest a lot on the narrative trope that they occupy in any given narrative, but even that isn’t always the standard for criteria. Because it’s such a wide array of […]

Prediction: Likely Best Director Nominations

The Best Director category is usually extremely competitive at the Academy Awards, aka the Oscars. It’s also a pretty controversial one, as the Academy has only recently started branching out to nominating and selecting individuals who aren’t old stuffy white guys. While this year will certainly have a few them (as no Best Director list […]

Prediction: Best Supporting Actress Oscar Nominations

The supporting actor categories at the Oscars tend to be a rather difficult one to predict. Not because those performers don’t deserve recognition; they most certainly do.

Prediction: Likely Best Actor Oscar Nominations

Of all the categories I plan to predict this year, Best Actor is probably the most competitive.

Everyone’s Doing It: Early Best Picture Nomination Predictions

For the first time in a long time, I can confidently say that I have seen almost every film that can be considered a front runner for Best Picture in 2022. Unless Hollywood decides to sneak in a white savior biopic, a slavery black trauma-porn period piece, or a Hollywood era circle jerk- we’re in […]

HFPA Responds to NBC’s No Golden Globes Stance

Earlier this morning, it was revealed that due to several problematic practices, policies, and continual shirking of responsibilities by the HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association), that NBC would no longer host and air the Golden Globes award ceremony. The HFPA has just issued a statement addressing (kinda) the situation, vowing that “implementing transformational changes as […]
