Review: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

As we get older, it's beginning to dawn on me that there's an entire generation that has grown up without knowing who Fred Rogers is or what Mister Roger's Neighborhood was. It stands to reason that as we as a society produce more and ...

Why Green Book winning best picture is a joke

Disclaimer: This is going to be a long, long rant. My soapbox has been checked for its sturdiness and I am perched upon it and ready to go.  It is an absolute joke that Green Book won Best Picture last night and the Academy should...

This year's Academy Awards will be a complete disaster

I love to hate the Oscars, but I also hate that I love them.  For the past several years I've had a tradition where I try to see as many Oscar Best Picture nominees as I can. I want to see which movies were considered the best of their...

The Oscars will not have a host this year

The show must go on, as they say. After Kevin Hart bowed out as the Academy Awards emcee, the annual Oscars awards ceremony will go on without a host. The last time a black comedian stepped down as Oscars host (Eddie Murphy in 2011) as a re...

Kevin Hart out as Oscar host over decade old tweets

I have never been a fan of Kevin Hart. It's not that I don't like the guy or think that he's annoying, but it's simply because I don't find him funny. I acknowledge that humor is subjective, so when a friend of mine tells me that he finds K...

5 times the Razzies were WRONG

There was a time in my life where I swore by the Razzies and Razzie nominations. While the Oscars promote some of the best movies of the year, the Razzies are the polar opposite. They talk about the worst movies of a previous year and revel...

Despite what some may say (and even more might want), the Academy Awards are a huge deal. It's a club for old white men, sure, but the choices they make absolutely affect what projects studios do and don't greenlight going forward. And for ...
