2016 Critics' Choice Awards: TV Nominations Revealed

14 November 2016 11:17 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The 22nd Critics’ Choice Award is less than a month away. We may be enjoying the shiny new TV season, and while it may seem all fun and new, critics are all to ready to begin awarding some honors. The Broadcast Television Journalists Association have officially announced, via Entertainment Weekly, the TV nominees.

Leading the pack with six nominations is The People v. O.J. Simpson, not a huge surprise given its subject matter and solid execution. Also of note are the sheer number of nominations that HBO has under its belt this year — 22 in total. Noticeably absent are this year’s Netflix Marvel shows. Despite being great TV, it still seems like critics are unwilling to give comic book adaptations their fair shake come awards season. 

Oh well. Better luck next year, I suppose? The film nominations will be announced on December 1, 2016.

Watch: John Oliver Tears Into Donald Trump’s Election and Dissects Why 2016 has Been the ‘Worst’

14 November 2016 11:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There’s still seven weeks left in 2016, but John Oliver is “calling it early:” this year has been the “worst.”

Reflecting on the recent election, the Last Week Tonight host dedicated the show’s season finale to railing against President-elect Donald Trump and doing a postmortem on the year.

“Instead of showing our daughters that they could some day be president, America proved that no grandpa is too racist to become leader of the free world,” Oliver – who has spent the last year outspokenly slamming Trump – lamented during the 30-minute episode, before telling viewers, “We have to take all of Trump’s promises seriously. »

Watch John Oliver Become Nauseous Over Trump, Say 'F--k 2016'

14 November 2016 7:10 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Oliver closed the final Last Week Tonight of 2016 by stating the obvious: "[It's] been an uncommonly shitty year" – from the Syrian refugee crisis to the draining election cycle. He capped off the episode by blowing up a giant "2016" sign, as celebrities like "Weird Al" Yankovic, Jeffrey Tambor and Larry Wilmore flipped the bird to the depressing past 12 months.

"Fuck 2016," grumbled Larry David in trademark style, pissed off over mayonnaise on his sandwich. "Go punch yourself in the dick," offered Megan Mullally. Between the celebrity spots, ordinary Americans vented about tragedies »

Newswire: Gillian Jacobs is going to Magic Camp with Adam DeVine and Jeffrey Tambor

9 November 2016 4:49 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Wet Hot American Summer basically rendered any future camp movies unnecessary, meaning filmmakers who are determined to tell stories about kids living in shacks near a lake for the summer have to get a little creative. According to Variety, Mean Girls director Mark Waters is doing that with Magic Camp, a new family comedy from Disney that’s set—unsurprisingly—at a camp where kids learn how to do magic. The move will star Adam DeVine as a former magician whose mentor (played by Jeffrey Tambor) enlists him to help work as a counselor at a magic camp he stayed at as a kid. Gillian Jacobs will be there as DeVine’s former partner.

On a side-note, the Variety story makes numerous references to “magic” and “magicians,” but it doesn’t specifically say if this is Harry Potter-style magic or “they’re called illusions” magic. We assume it’s »

Trolls Review

6 November 2016 10:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As far as animated films go, 2016 has offered a wild assortment of big-screen releases, ranging from exceptional (Zootopia, Kubo and the Two Strings) to downright awful (Ratchet & Clank). Trolls – the latest effort from Dreamworks Animation – sadly fits somewhere into the latter category, a studio product that feels like it was built in a focus group rather than a creative team with an imaginative story worth telling. Perhaps its basis on the popular line of Troll dolls should be a red flag.

The film follows Princess Poppy (voiced by Anna Kendrick) and reluctant ally Branch (voiced by Justin Timberlake) as they set off on a mission to rescue a group of kidnapped Trolls from the monstrous Bergens, ogre-like creatures who eat their kind on a holiday called “Trollstice” in order to achieve happiness. By now, everyone has heard Timberlake’s hit single “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” and for those viewers »

'Trolls' Review: A-List Animated Musical Is Colorful, Forgettable

4 November 2016 2:27 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

They're small, squat and fuzzy, with ridiculous hair and a love of anonymous mischief-making ... but enough about folks who haunt comments sections and blow up Twitter feeds. This DreamWorks animation joint revolves around a different type of troll, specifically those vintage miniature dolls blessed with drunken-pug faces and gravity-defying 'dos. Having licensed the IP for the purposes of big-screen toysploitation, the company has come up with a story in which our furry little friends are pursued by giants known as Bergens; if these miserable, ogre-like creatures consume a troll on a holiday known as "Trollstice, »

Film Review: ‘Trolls’ is Catchier Than it Has a Right to Be

4 November 2016 6:29 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Trolls” isn’t the type of confection that I would normally subject myself to, but at least it didn’t make me want to stick knitting needles in my ears. That’s because “Trolls” aspires to be this season’s “Frozen,” a full blown animated musical jam packed with songs you can’t get out of your head as much as you might try.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

In the movie’s world, Trolls live peacefully in safe exile after escaping from the clutches of a people called the Bergens. There’s plentiful singing, dancing, and hugs at regular intervals. And they’re led by Princess Poppy (voice by Anna Kendrick), who in addition to being on the verge of perpetually breaking into song, has an almost pathological positivity in the face of obstacles. Naturally she’s paired up with Branch (Justin Timberlake), the one Troll who’s as sour as she is sweet. »

Review: Trolls, Don't Worry, Be Happy

3 November 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Beneath its cheerful surfaces, a noxious message underlies Trolls. The latest production from Dreamworks Animation features highly colorful visuals to enhance the tuneful karaoke of the primary narrative. The setup is that the monstrous, evil race of creatures known as Bergens can only be happy if they eat the tiny, happy race of creatures known as Trolls. This only happens once a year; the rest of the time, the Bergens stalk through their daily affairs in a miserable mood. The Trolls, on the other hand, are always happy, especially since the day 20 years before when their leader, King Peppy (voiced by Jeffrey Tambor) managed to save them all, including his daughter Poppy (voiced by Anna Kendrick). The Trolls went into hiding, but they all...
