Will Oscar attendees get the COVID-19 vaccine to attend?
December 29th, 2020 under Oscars. [ Comments: none ]


The Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences announced that this year’s Oscars will be an in-person event whether to coronavirus pandemic is over or not.

How are they going to do it safely? That is what they are considering now. According to Daily Mail, one of their options is that everyone who attends will have to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

There are many problems with that. I am sure several of the people will not be willing to get it because they are antivaccine. The other problem is, will the vaccine be ready to give to everyone to get their first dose by March 24th? I will go ballistic if they jump the line to get the shot while my loved ones and I will have to wait longer to receive it. I am sure I would not be the only one.

It would be another reason for people to hate Hollywood.

Plus, what is really the point of having them this year when almost all of the movie theaters will have been closed for 13 months on April 25th?

Would you mind if the Oscars took a year off? And how would you feel if Oscar attendees skipped the line to get the vaccine just to attend Hollywood’s biggest night?

The Oscars are delayed until to April 25th

Today, the Television Academy announced that the Creative Emmys is going virtual, they canceled the Governors Ball, and they are still not sure what they are going to do with the Emmys on September 20th. because of the coronavirus pandemic.

While TV’s night is still questionable, the movies’ night is not. The Movie Academy revealed today that the Oscars are moving from February 28th to April 25th. Not only that, they extended the date that studios have to release their films in the theaters. Instead of New Year’s Eve being the cutoff date, the studios now have until the day when the Oscars were supposed to have aired. There goes my friend’s chances of his movie Bloodshot getting a nomination for Best Picture.

According to the Associated Press, this is the fourth time they have been delayed. “The ceremony was pushed back a week because of disastrous flooding in Los Angeles in 1938. In 1968, it was delayed two days following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And in 1981, it was put off for 24 hours after President Ronald Reagan was shot in Washington D.C. The 1981 decision was made four hours before the broadcast was scheduled to begin.”

It will be intersting to see where our world will be in April, and if they can go on as they have gone on in the past.

As of now, when it comes to the bigger awards shows, the Tonys is indefintely postposed and no word on the Grammys, Golden Globes and SAG Awards. I am sure the latter two will be affected by AMPAS’s decision. I mean, they can’t have a different eligibility date than the Oscars. Can they?

Was anyone else hoping that Awards season was just outright cancelled?

The Oscars might be delayed

The Tonys have already been postponed indefinitely. We haven’t heard any news about the Emmys or the Golden Globes. Now comes word from Variety that the Oscars might not happen on February 28, 2021.

Since everything is in such flux, and no movie has been released in theaters in two months, it makes sense that they might want to postpone Hollywood’s biggest night until things are a little more normal. Granted they have nine months to make a decision. A lot can happen in that amount of time, like a baby.

Would you be upset if awards season didn’t happen? I would be OK with that because I hate that season almost as much as tax season.

The production company behind Parasite drops the mic on Donald Trump
February 20th, 2020 under Donald Trump, Oscars. [ Comments: none ]


Donald Trump had one his bizarre rants at a rally tonight. He went off on the movie Parasite because it won Best Picture at the Oscars this year. He does not understand why a movie from South Korea won the award. Did he see it? Nope. He just doesn’t like it because the country is not giving in to his stupid trade war.

Well, when NEON, who produces the film, heard that he bashed their Oscar-winning film, they had the perfect response for him. They wrote, “Understandable, he can’t read.” Unless someone reads that tweet to him, he will never know about it. However, we will. Because we do read.

Now, let’s talk about him saying it should’ve been Gone with the Wind. I thought he hated the wind because it blows whatever is left of his hair revealing how bald and how white his skin is.

Oh, and even though Sunset Boulevard was nominated for 11 Oscars, it did not win Best Picture. However, just like he will always be impeached and a Razzie winner, Parasite will always be the Oscar’s Best Picture of 2019.

At least if Lady Gaga and Glenn Close lost, they lost to a great speech
February 24th, 2019 under Lady Gaga, Oscars, Paramount Network. [ Comments: none ]


I will be honest with you, I have not seen any of the films nominated for the Oscars tonight (I tried a few and got bored). Therefore, I don’t know who deserved it and who did not.

I was under the impression, like most, that Glenn Close was going to win Best Actress. If not her, then Lady Gaga. Well, they both lost. Olivia Colman won for The Favourite. Even though she was not the favorite to win, her speech was the winner of the night. It was worth her winning just for that.

BTW Lady Gaga’s speech for winning Best Song was not that Shallow. I was crying with her as we watched as A Star Was Born This Way!
