The 89th Academy Awards Show Review: Jimmy Kimmel Slays on a Shocking, Joyous Oscar Night — Save Two Big Bombs

18 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Moment of truth: The Oscars will always feel long. It’s a three-plus hour awards show built around handing out trophies and listening to speeches. It’s going to drag at times, and the 89th Academy Awards ran way over time. Knowing that this is expected — that the show tends to drag no matter what the host does — only makes Jimmy Kimmel and the producers’ decision to open the show as they did all the more ballsy.

From the moment Justin Timberlake broke into his extremely catchy nominated song, we, indeed, could not fight the feeling. And that feeling was utter exuberance.

And while it kept the feeling flush for a while, the uncontrollable building blocks of the Oscars eventually brought things back down to earth. The speeches weren’t all that surprising, save for a few, and the winners weren’t particularly shocking in the major categories — except »

my picks for tonight’s 89th Academy Awards (the Oscars for 2016’s films)

18 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Update:

Winners are now indicated. I correctly guessed 11 out of the 24 categories, which is slightly better than last year, when I guessed 10 out of 24.

Previous 02.26.17:

I’ve now seen as many of the nominated films as I will be able to before tonight’s ceremony, and here finally are my educated guesses about who will take home each award — projected winners are Xed at the lefthand side. Keep in mind: those Xes don’t represent whom I think should win Oscars but whom I think will win, based on what little I can grasp about how the Academy thinks. I’ve also noted which nominees I think should win. Kindly note that this is not necessarily my take on who did the best performance/writing/FX/whatever of the year, but whom I think is best among the nominees.

I have not noted a “should win” for the feature documentary category, »

18 hours ago | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Justin Hurwitz, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul denied Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda the first – though undoubtedly not his last – opportunity to sweep the awards quartet known as the Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony), by winning the Oscar for Best Song, “City Of Stars,” from Hurwitz’ already Oscar-winning score for La La Land. Miranda was a nominee for “How Far I’ll Go” from Disney’s Moana. "City of Stars" also bested songs by Justin Timberlake and Sting in the Best… »

‘La La Land’s’ ‘City of Stars’ Lyricist Gives Shout Out to Arts in Public Schools at Oscars

18 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“City of Stars” from “La La Land” shined bright at the 89th Academy Awards, winning the statuette for best original song.

Benj Pasek, one of the song’s lyricists, made a point to shout out public schools in the acceptance speech. “I was educated in public schools where arts and culture were valued and recognized and resourced,” he said. “And I’m so grateful to all my teachers who taught so much and gave so much to us.”

In any other year, his remarks might not be seen as a political statement. However, his comment comes at a time when Betsy DeVos, the recently confirmed secretary of education under the Trump administration, has taken heat from teachers’ unions and some charter school advocates.

“I was educated in public schools where arts and culture were valued, recognized and resourced,” said song writer Justin Paul in accepting the award.

“City of Stars” was the favorite to win tonight, but it faced some big name talent.  “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda was reaching to be the youngest Egot (winner of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony awards) with his song “How Far I’ll Go,” from the animated Disney hit “Moana.” Mega Pop star Justin Timberlake was nominated for “Can’t Stop the Feeling” from “Trolls,” which he wrote with Max Martin and Karl Johan Schuster, »

Oscars Support the Press During ‘The Empty Chair’ Performance

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Both in tribute to the lost journalist and in demonstration of the power of music, Sting took to the Oscar stage to perform the best song nominee “The Empty Chair” from “Jim: The James Foley Story.”

At the end of his touching solo performance, a shot of Foley was projected on the stage with his quote, “If I don’t have the moral courage to challenge authority … we don’t have journalism.”

The quote was especially timely given that President Trump just banned several news outlets, including CNN and the New York Times, from White House briefings.

Oscars 2017: Full list of winners – as they happen

26 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sunday’s 89th Academy Awards are underway at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney took to the stage at the Dolby Theatre in a popular adapted screenplay win for Moonlight as the drama earned its second win of the night.

Moments earlier Kenneth Lonergan accepted the original screenplay award for Manchester By The Sea in the film’s first prize. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon – winners of this award for Good Will Hunting 19 years ago – presented the honour to Lonergan. Damon was a producer on the film.

Meryl Streep used her Oscar show platform to pay subtle homage to the unifying power of film when she joined Javier Bardem on stage at the Dolby Theatre to present the cinematography award.

Truth is hard to reveal,” Streep said, “but when it happens on the movie screen filmgoers no matter where they are from, feel their hearts soar.”
