The Grammy Awards are one of my favorite awards shows all year. They have tons of awards to give out but over the past few years, they shorten how many awards they present during the live show and turn it into a star-studded concert.
In the vast sea known as award season it would be easy for a vessel like the Critics' Choice Awards to get lost. But not this year, my friends. This past weekend the show was stolen by 9-year-old actor Jacob Tremblay who won the award for Best Young Actor for his work in the indie film, Room.
The Critics' Choice Awards are being held this weekend and it combines the best of television and film voted on by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association.
Oscar nominations will be announced tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. ET, and we can't help but think Sage users have predicted the future once again. After watching who won Golden Globes last week, we have a pretty good idea of who will get nominated for Oscars.
The Golden Globes are back, and Ricky Gervais is the host again, making it his fourth time to host. He's been known to drink throughout the show and roast A-listers in the audience. We expect no shortage of cringe-worthy moments.
Each year thousands of awards are handed out to the rich and famous by guilds, "The Academy" and other prestigious groups. The nominees are usually deserving of the awards, but occasionally we're left scratching our heads as to "how X got left out," or "why Y should not have won."
It was an evening of recognition and sharing the joys and gifts amongst friends and industry peers. It was a chance to network, to meet new writers, producers, movers, shakers and a chance to cut loose and have a good time.
Naturally, some film and television is better than others, and some shouldn't be nominated but are, and others aren't nominated when they should. It's all insane, but let's talk about it because it's fun!
Perhaps most notably, though, it's the newness of it all that make the college award's show a success: the Woodie Awards spotlight up-and-coming performers, meaning it's more likely that those watching won't be as familiar with the artists and/or songs featured throughout the night.
Billy Crystal was best in his sincere tribute to his friend, veteran Oscar producer Gil Cates, who died last year. However, memories are a funny thing and it's unfortunate Crystal had to compete with long ago terrific performances by himself.
