Yes, Damien Chazelle’s ‘La La Land’ Really Will Win Director and Picture Oscars — Here’s Why

17 February 2017 2:17 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Late in the Oscar season, at the moment when voters actually fill in their ballots (the deadline is February 21 at 5 pm), it all comes down to what movies they have actually seen. What did they love the most, and is freshest in their minds? Which film aligns with the zeitgeist, delivering the message that 6,000 voters want to send?

The five directing nominations tend to line up with the strongest Best Picture contenders, although snubbed director nominee Ben Affleck did win Best Picture win for “Argo.” However, that underdog story became a narrative in itself that drove “Argo” to the win.

The actor and writer talked about Orson Welles, lost TV sitcom Chance in a Million, German nationalism, Jacqui Dankworth, Shakespeare and cellos

It's been delightful if sometimes gruelling, webchatting to you all. Let's do it again sometime!

Mike Thorne says:

I think it's quite important with Wagner to distinguish between German nationalism as espoused by the new German Reich, from Wagner's conception of a cultural phenomenon, which is a fundamental kind of Teutonic conception of life.

Nph, Corden Belt Out Les Misérables, Hamilton Tunes During Broadway Duel

10 January 2017 4:49 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Perhaps no two people are better suited for a Broadway riff-off than Neil Patrick Harris and James Corden.

VideosNph’s A Series of Unfortunate Events: Netflix’s New Trailer Suggests That Viewers ‘Watch Something More Pleasant’

The former How I Met Your Mother star, who in 2014 won a Tony Award for starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, challenged the Late Late Show host, who in 2012 won a Tony for his role in One Man, Two Guvnors, to a musical duel.
