The Oscars
In yet another move that the Academy Awards is making because they think it's a good idea- four main categories will be presented during a commercial break at the 91st Annual Academy Awards (aka Oscars). There are 4 categories total that have been deemed unworthy of the general broadcast awards and we're kind of surprised- Make[...]

The Oscars
The 2019 Academy Awards announced their nominations and in light of the discussion of shocking choices and snubs, I propose another solution: expand the categories. The Academy provides the gold standard of filmmaking, but often it feels the categories provided don't represent the scope of the film industry like science fiction/fantasy films While it's inspiring Black[...]

Kevin Hart on Oscars 2019 Hosting: "I'm Over That, I'm Over the Moment"
As if there's any such thing as "definitive" in the entertainment industry… But this time there might just be, as actor/comedian Kevin Hart confirmed that he would not host the 2019 Academy Awards during an interview Wednesday morning with ABC's Good Morning America co-host Michael Strahan Though appearing on the morning news/talk show to promote his new film[...]
Kevin Hart Opens Up About Oscars Controversy
At least it didn't stretch out too long… Looks like the on-again/off-again tango between actor/comedian Kevin Hart and the 2019 Academy Awards is officially off for good (???), with reports circulating that Hart stepped away from re-consideration as host, less than 48 hours after Ellen DeGeneres made public her efforts to have Hart reinstated[...]

In a not truly surprising move, the Academy of Motion Pictures has chosen to drop the newly minted "popular film" category from the 91st Annual Academy Awards oscars ceremony. The announcement initially of this new category was met with outright disbelief by many in the industry; why the need to present such a one-sided award when[...]
Chadwick Boseman Talks New 'Popular Film' Oscars Category and Black Panther
I understand what they are going for with the new category, but it feels an awful lot like the Best Animated Feature one, where they don't have to stick those films in the bigger categories because they have their own special award.

Now we're sure you woke up Sunday morning thinking, "Gee, I hope Bleeding Cool lets us know when and where we can watch tonight's Academy Awards red carpet and show."
