Today, AMPAS announced this year’s Oscar nominations, and the snubs were more shocking than who was nominated.

Barbie found itself nominated for Best Motion Picture of the Year, and Ryan Gosling is up for Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for playing Ken.

Yet, Margot Robbie, who played the title character, and Greta Gerwig, who directed the Oscar-nominated film, were not on the list. Therefore, people were shocked and dismayed.

However, no one more than Gosling. So, he released a statement about them being ignored.

I am extremely honored to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films. And I never thought I’d being saying this, but I’m also incredibly honored and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken.

But there is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally celebrated film.

No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius.

To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.

Against all odds with nothing but a couple of soulless, scantily clad, and thankfully crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, they broke our hearts, they pushed the culture and they made history. Their work should be recognized along with the other very deserving nominees.

Having said that, I am so happy for America Ferrera and the other incredible artists who contributed their talents to making this such a groundbreaking film.”

What do you think of the Academy doing a Ken to Barbie?

The Oscars air March 10th on ABC.

Are you sick of trying your hardest to stay up to watch the entire Oscar telecast to see who won Best Picture, La La Land or Moonlight? Well, this year, that won’t be a problem.

That is because ABC and AMPAS announced that the Movie’s Biggest Night is going to start at 7p EDT, instead of 8p. And they say it will end by 10:30p because we are going to get a special episode of Abbott Elementary.

Just like Tom Cruise and Sylvester Stallone, who grew up dreaming of winning an Oscar someday, that 10:30p end time is never going to happen.

Jimmy Kimmel will host the Academy Awards on March 10th.


TV Roundup: Who’s hosting the Oscars? Who’s leaving Law & Order? Which show moves to the Fall?

ABC and AMPAS announced today that Jimmy Kimmel will be back to host the Oscars for a fourth time on March 10th.

“After his triumphant return to the Oscars stage last year, we are honored to have Jimmy back to guide us through one of the most beloved celebrations in entertainment. He is such a valuable member of our Disney family, and we could not be more appreciative of him and his entire team,” said Craig Erwich, president of ABC Entertainment, Hulu and Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals. “We are also grateful to have the multitalented Molly back on the producing team, and we have no doubt that this year will be a spectacular night celebrating the biggest films of the year.”

I don’t know if I would want him back. Weird things happen when he does it. First, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that the wrong movie won Best Picture in 2017. Then, last year, Will Smith slapped Chris Rock? What is going to happen in 2024? Only time will tell.

Law & Order is getting ready to get back into production, but they are going to do it with one less detective. That is because TV Line reports that Jeffrey Donovan is leaving the series due to creative differences, aka he got a Burn Notice.

Producers are looking for a replacement for this season’s 13 episodes. I am sure there are a lot of New York actors who will jump at the chance. I hope they go with a female like Jill Hennessy.

Donovan is not the first actor to leave the show. His TV partner, Anthony Anderson, opted not to return for the second season of the revival.

Due to the strikes, broadcast television lost half a season. Therefore, not all of the shows will be airing in the first part of 2024. Deadline is reporting that 9-1-1: Lone Star’s 5th season will not debut until the Fall. And this season will only be 12 episodes.

Lone Star is not the only show Fox is moving. New dramas Doc and Rescue: Hi-Surf are also waiting to make their debuts. And I am sure these series will not be alone. CBS already announced that Matlock and Poppa’s House will also be delayed until next season.


Lady Gaga proves she cares about people

As much as I like Lady Gaga’s music, I like her as a person even more. She has been wonderful with the ailing Tony Bennett. She was so caring to Liza Minnelli at the Oscars last year. And this year, she was the first person to run to help a fallen photographer.

Say what you want about the singer, but how many other people would turn around and rush to help a stranger? Watch the video, and you will see she was the only one who did.

In a world full of Will Smiths, be a Lady Gaga.

Angela Bassett couldn’t hide her disappointment for losing an Oscar

Angela Bassett and Jamie Lee Curtis were both up for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars tonight, but only one of them could take home the Oscar statuette. And that woman was the Everything, Everywhere All at Once actress.

As with every awards show, all the nominees are shown in little boxes as they wait to hear if their names will be called. The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever actress looked nervous as she waited to hear the winner’s name. But then, when she lost, her face looked to show disappointment and not the fake happiness that the other losers showed.

I get that she is upset because no one wants to lose. But it was a tough year, and Curtis also put on one helluva performance. As did Bassett. And there is always Black Panther 3.
