What a 'Deadpool' Best Picture Nomination Would Signal to Hollywood
Does the guy in red deserve to be nominated for a guy in gold? Well, I am nerd, not an awards analyst, so I can't necessarily argue the finer points of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' process for dolling out the statues.
However, as said nerd, I can throw out there what I think the message a Deadpool best picture nomination should send to Hollywood execs, who for far too long have played it safe with superhero films in an effort to not exclude the younger crowd — and, more importantly, their money. When Tuesday's nominations are »

Wanda Says Thomas Tull Exit Reflects Restructuring, Not Flops
Legendary Entertainment’s Chinese owner, Dalian Wanda, said Friday that the abrupt exit of founder Thomas Tull is part of its larger restructuring plans but that the change at the top did not reflect dissatisfaction with Tull or the recent release of “The Great Wall,” which some have described as disappointing.
“Legend’s personnel adjustments are due to Wanda Pictures’ overall structure” and are part of Wanda Chairman Wang Jianlin’s previously announced expansion plans, a statement from the Chinese conglomerate said.
“‘The Great Wall’ has just begun its worldwide release, and it has not yet been released in the North American region,” the statement added. “Its so-called failure is a fiction.”
The Zhang Yimou-directed action film, which reportedly cost $150 million to make, has generated slightly more than $200 million at the box office, most of that in China, since its December release. How it performs in the U.S. »
