  10. Are Awards Unfair to Popcorn And Comic Book Movies?

    Where are your nominations, Chris Evans? Where??

    Recently, Deadline published an interesting interview with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as part of their never-ending “Awards Watch.” The question: should their film be a contender for best picture? Seems simple enough perhaps; if it came out that year and is submitted for consideration, it is a contender. But that isn’t really true.

  14. Things We Saw Today: One Person Cosplays Every Johnny Depp Character Because Why Not?

    Captain Ichabod Scissorhands at your service.

    Somebody went to incredibly great lengths to get all the costume pieces together to cosplay as every Johnny Depp character. At least that difficulty was probably balanced out by the fact that 90% of them are basically the same. *Ducks and covers.*

  17. Batkid Was Cut From the Oscars, They Were Significantly Less Adorable as a Result

    They found a way to cut our hopes and dreams.

    I don't even have to see the Oscars' cut Batkid segment to know that I would've preferred for it to be included. It could have been twenty solid minutes of Batkid and Ellen standing awkwardly next to each other, and it still would've been adorable and better than any other part of the Oscars. So why did it get cut? The Internet has some theories.

  18. The Worf of Starfleet Trailer Should’ve Won Wolf of Wall Street an Oscar

    Here's your consolation prize, Scorsese.
