While the Oscars are still over a month away, another major awards show took place last night which may have given us some insight into the choices that will be made on February 28th.
Will Packer, producer of Straight Outta Compton has some strong words regarding the lack of diversity among this year's Oscar nominations.
As with most years, when the Academy Award nominations came out yesterday they received criticism for a lack of diversity, and this year New York City's mayor even called out the Oscars on this front.
There are a lot of deserving actors, writers, directors, and others nominated for Academy Awards. There is also, however, a subset of those nominated for both an Oscar and a Razzie. Here are the 2016 individuals with that dubious honor.
What were the most surprising turn of events during this morning’s nomination announcements for the 88th annual Academy Awards? Read on to find out!
With the announcement just a few hours away at this point, everyone and their mother is trying to figure out what films will be nominated for an Academy Award, and one group is using math to predict the Oscars.
Kate Winslet and Aaron Sorkin’s Golden Globes wins in the Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenwriter categories have rejuvenated Steve Jobs’ Oscar campaign. Which, despite the prestigious talent involved in the film, was actually assumed dead.
December is always a big month for the movie business, as it’s when the studios trot out all their big awards contenders for the year. This particular December is an even bigger deal, however, what with a little movie called Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting theaters in just a few days.
The word is out: next year's Oscars are going to be hosted by a duo! While one has been outright name dropped, there's four other candidates we'd like to submit alongside the current frontrunners.
Good things come in twos, and it seems like the producers behind the Oscars are finally getting hip to this concept. After Fey and Poehler proved that two Golden Globes hosts are better than one, the Academy Awards are looking to have their own dynamic duo for the 2016 Oscars ceremony.
With Amy Poehler at her side, Tina Fey has had a good amount of success hosting events, but thus far her game has been kept limited to just the Golden Globes.

Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Tony Awards four times, but it doesn’t look like he has the same resolve to return for the Oscars. The 2015 Academy Awards ceremony aired to mixed reviews, with the worst calling it the most boring awards show in recent memory.

It was only six years ago that the Academy Awards decided to make a rather major change to their Best Picture category. For years the number of nominees up for the big prize was limited to only five titles, but a rule change made it so that as many as 10 films could be up for the award. Apparently that experiment may be coming to an end.
Eddie Redmayne and J.K. Simmons must surely have woken up feeling pretty good this morning following their big Oscar wins last night. However, a warning shot has since been fired, because a new study has revealed that Oscar success could have a detrimental effect on an actor's personal lives.
