Awards

With the 2015 Academy Awards come and gone, it's time to focus on the negative stuff...or at least the stuff that's popular to hate rather than actual bad movies. We've got expected "winners" like Michael Bay and lots of hate for Saving Christmas. I've never seen it myself, but was it bad enough to sweep these things?  Full list of winners below.
As a person who gets to attend press screenings for almost every major and minor release out there I get to see way too many movies. You're thinking that sounds awesome, but it can be a horrible burden. Do you know how many b...
To completely offset the Academy Awards nominations from earlier this morning, here we have the opposite end of the spectrum. As usual, the 2015 Razzie noms (narrowed down from the shortlist a bit ago) are really just based o...
And we have them! The nominations are in with Birdman and Grand Budapest pulling in the lead with nomination count. A few snubs and a few surprises. How about Whiplash sneaking in for a Best Picture nominations? It...


And here we have it. Well, not really "it." "It" is reserved for the Oscars, but here we have the secondary it: the Golden Globes. More fun, better hosts and more drinking than the Oscars so really a better show. Below you'll...
As awards shows increasingly become more irrelevant, the Razzies are fading away even more so. As negativity is spread so much through social media, most people don't feel like listening to that stuff anymore. Take this short...
Here we go. Awards season has officially begun. The Golden Globes may not seem like a big awards ceremony anymore, but their set of nominees and winners set the stage for the rest of the season. Big winners and nominees here ...
The Washington Area Film Critics Association, of which I am a card carrying member, has delivered it's award winners once again this year. I voted of course and I think this year is one of the first where I've overwhelming ag...
Documentary film is awesome, but most people don't rush out to watch it or even have the ability to do that if they wanted. You usually get sucked into a documentary by accident and then you remember how great they can be. So...
The Oscars are coming and that means we'll need to start talking about nominees, but before that we have to discuss the submitted films to be nominated. At least for animated films we need to. There have been 20 submitted, 8 ...
The Academy Awards are a tough sell every year. Each year their relevance continues to fade as more and more folks rely on word of mouth from social media rather than purchasing their movie ticket or DVD based on how many awa...
The Academy Awards have come and gone, and while they were full of pleasant moments (the super selfie, the pizza, Lupita Nyong'o and Matthew McConaughey's speeches), the Razzies also happened but were full of not so pleasant ...
The Academy Awards have once again come and gone. Considering they ran about 30 minutes late it's quite possible you fell asleep before they were over, and since Flixist is your only source of movie news (right?) we thought i...
Update: We're live! Toss questions at us in the comments or, you know make fun of us or whatever. Thanks for watching! If you'd like to join us for the Hangout  on camera just send your Google+ account email to matthew@...
Looking back over the years at our Oscar predictions its almost scary how often we're right. In fact we're right all the time. Some times the Academy might make the wrong choice, but feel safe in knowing that our Oscar predic...
Hello gentle readers of Flixist! Did you know that the 2014 Academy Awards is this weekend!? I sure forgot. What do you guys and girls think? Are you surprised by some of the nominees? (*cough cough* Lone Ranger *cough*) Are ...
And here they are. The real contenders for the real awards... that just don't matter anymore. In all honesty the Oscars are a great bit of fun, but we aren't expecting too many surprises this year. I don't think American Hus...
And here come the Golden Globes! Right now we're watching the entirely useless red carpet where we get to see Jennifer Lawrence be charming and everyone else try to be interesting -- at least they have a decent crew out there...
And the big guns are fired. The Golden Globes have announced their nominees setting us up for endless debate of what deserves to be there and what doesn't. What surprises are there? Well, how about five non-comedy/musical mov...
It's getting to be that time of year! Awards season is coming upon us and the early nominations award nominations are in. The Independent Spirit Awards are kind of the indy Oscars, but everyone gets drunk and actually has fun...
It's that time of year again, folks. It's the time of year where the bigwig films are all vying for an Academy Award nomination. It's going to be an interesting year given the amount of spectacular films that debuted this yea...
At the beginning of every screening at the New York Asian Film Festival, the good folks at Subway Cinema handed out little slips of paper with ratings of 1-5 on them, ranging from "Worst Film Ever" to "Awesome." At the end, t...
