75 days until Oscar nominations...

The upcoming Oscar ceremony is their 90th but guess who's having their 75th birthday this year? Oscar's bad seed step-sister The Golden Globes, that's who! We kid. We love the Globes, bad seed reference aside, in all their adorably flawed glory. What should we do to celebrate the Globes 75th birthday this year?!?

To honor their impending anniversary ceremony, here are 10 random times that the Globes were smarter than Oscar:

2010 The Social Network, Best Picture (The King's Speech won the Oscar) 2005 Brokeback Mountain, Best Picture (Crash won the Oscar) 1996-1999 Their choices for Best Supporting Actor always preferrable to Oscars!  1995 Sense & Sensibility, Best Picture (Braveheart won the Oscar) 1984 Kim Basinger was nominated for The Natural instead of Glenn Close at the Oscars for the same movie (Close is a better actress, sure, but Basinger is way better in The Natural) 1980s They recognized that Cher was a brilliant actress long

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season
Mother-daughter relationships have always been the stuff of great drama. And the Oscars are no exception. Three decades ago the “Moonstruck” acting duo Olympia Dukakis and Cher both won gold for playing a strong-willed New York Italian mother and her feisty daughter. Six years later, as a mute Scottish teacher and her de facto interpreter in New Zealand, Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin repeated that twofer triumph with Jane Campion’s “The Piano.”

Onscreen mother-daughter conflict has resulted in other dual Academy Award nominations: selfless Barbara Stanwyck tricked Anne Shirley into marrying rich in tearjerker “Stella Dallas” (1937); Meryl Streep’s big mouth inspired a rebellious Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County” (2013); Piper Laurie was literally crucified by Sissy Spacek in “Carrie” (1976). At the start of this decade, Mo’Nique won an Oscar portraying the sexually abusive parent of fellow “Precious” nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Back in 1984, both Shirley MacLaine and

Joe versus the Volcano

“May you live to be a thousand years old, sir.” Still the most widely unheralded great movie on the books, John Patrick Shanley’s lightweight/profound fable is an unmitigated delight. See Tom Hanks at the end of the first phase of his career plus Meg Ryan in an unacknowledged career highlight. How can a movie be so purposely insubstantial, and yet be ‘heavier’ than a dozen pictures with ‘big things to say?’

‘A Star Is Born’: Will Public Realize Stefani Germanotta Is Lady Gaga?

‘A Star Is Born’: Will Public Realize Stefani Germanotta Is Lady Gaga?
Casting Lady Gaga opposite Bradley Cooper for the lead role in the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born” was a coup for Warner Bros. But with the singer opting to use her real name, Stefani Germanotta, as her credit in the film, what does it mean for the studio’s marketing efforts and ultimate reach?

The oh-so-Hollywood take from inside the lot, according to a source, is that “there’s something appropriate about Gaga being credited as Stefani in the role of an unknown ingenue being discovered and turned into a star.” That would explain why she went by her stage name in 2016’s “American Horror Story: Roanoke” and previous movie appearances in “Machete Kills” (2013) and “Muppets Most Wanted” (2014), but what about recognition among a wide swath of mainstream moviegoers? Her “huge presence as Lady Gaga will be obvious to audiences,” adds the insider. (Worth noting: In press notes for “A Star Is Born,

Mindy Newell: Letting In The Light

“What we’ll see will defy explanation. If you want to view paradise simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it.

“Wanta change the world? There’s nothing to it. There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination.

Nicolas Cage: examining his straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Feb 24, 2017

Last year we watched ten of the recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Since then, he's made six more...

This article has been updated to include six new films: Dog Eat Dog, The Trust, USS Indianapolis: Men Of Courage, Southern Fury, Army Of One and Vengeance: A Love Story.

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical

Revisiting New York romantic comedies of the 1980s

Aliya Whiteley Jan 10, 2017

Sigourney Weaver, Cher, Harrison Ford and more join our celebration of the New York romantic comedy...

New York has been celebrated so many times in movies. In the 1980s alone we had kids dancing on yellow taxis in Fame, the public library being haunted in Ghostbusters, and the ongoing visions of Scorsese and Allen, to name only a fraction of offerings. But I think that the romantic comedies that set their stories in the Big Apple during the 80s created a real and lasting charm about the city that can still be felt today.

Here's a look at three of those romantic comedies that highlighted different aspects of life in New York. When you watch them, nearly 40 years on, it's easy to feel a nostalgia for it all: the big hairdoes of the feisty heroines; the shoulder pads of the heroes; the Manhattan skyline with the World

People Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - Oh, Go On, Have Another Helping of Sweet, Fluffy Baklava
On the subject of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, let's start with this: Nia Vardalos' follow-up to her word-of-mouth hit from long, long ago - 2002! - is a lot more enjoyable than the recent Zoolander 2 (15 years after the original) or Netflix's Fuller House (slightly more than two decades). Sequels and reboots are often like old friends who turn up hinting that they've been cosmetically "freshened" and looking instead as if they've had a complete body lift, internal organs included. Wedding 2 has no pretentions that way. The hair, the makeup, the jokes have barely changed. It's like the first film,
