Kevin Hart out as Oscar host over decade old tweets

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...

War for the Planet of the Apes is getting a big Oscar push

When the first Planet of the Apes prequels (they're prequels to the Heston originals, not remakes) landed there was a lot of buzz about Andy Serkis getting a Best Actor nomination for his motion capture role as Caesar. That didn't...

Academy might return to five Best Picture nominees

Once upon a time, The Dark Knight was released, and when it didn't get an Oscar nod for Best Picture, the people were upset. "We have failed you," said the Oscars, "from now on, there shall be not five, but ten nominations! Nothing sha...

Let It Go will be at the Oscars

So I wasn't the only person who thought Frozen got robbed at the Golden Globes, right? Look, U2 is fine, I like a couple of their songs, but they have to be the least interesting popular band out there. Even Nickelback is interestingly bad,...

Ellen DeGeneres hosting the 86th annual Academy Awards

For awhile it seemed that The Academy just wanted Seth MacFarlane to host the 2014 Oscars (despite his use of anti-women jokes), but then he dropped out because he was too busy. Scrambling to find a host with the same amount of pull (MacFar...
