9 Oscars Winners Who Don't Hold Up to the Test of Time

24 February 2017 2:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Just because a movie or a celebrity wins an Oscar, that doesn't mean the win was deserved. While the Academy Awards are seen as the capstone to awards season -- and one of the highest honors in the business -- we all know that stars and movies get snubbed or overlooked all the time.

What's worse is when we look back at what did win, and shake our heads in confusion and disbelief. So, with the 89th Academy Awards just around the corner, let's take a look back over the show's illustrious history at a few times the Academy voters clearly made a mistake.

22 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Oscar producers Mike de Luca and Jennifer Todd aren’t above the occasional beg or bribe to ensure Hollywood’s biggest night stays that way.

This is the first time producing the Academy Awards for the veteran production execs, and both were determined to find the perfect host to kick off their maiden voyage into live TV.

“We were looking for someone in that Johnny Carson, Bob Hope mold,” De Luca tells People. “A true master of ceremonies, someone who could riff as the evening went on.”

With those qualifications in mind, De Luca says Jimmy Kimmel “fit the bill »

6 Black And White Movies That Should Never Be Colorized

7 February 2017 8:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Is it black and white?” At some point, every kid will ask that question, and when it’s geared towards you, you won’t want to answer it. Why? Because chances are the movie in question is a great flick, one that you’re dying to watch, and by answering ‘yes,’ you’re afraid that its credibility will lessen. And that’s a terrible feeling.

What younger audiences always forget is that film started out black and white, and without that “prehistoric” technology, the glossy, explosion-filled action eye-candy they adore would never happen. Black and white films are a powerful art form in themselves, not just a stage before glorious Technicolor. They can emphasize theme, capture feeling and represent an idea (among other uses).

Four Director’s Cuts I Want To See

14 January 2017 5:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras with four director’s cuts he’d like to see…

The idea of a Director’s Cut or ‘Extended Cut’ isn’t necessarily new. There was a time when letting the director back into the editing booth to take another shot at shaping their vision was unheard of. Kubrick would sometimes re-edit movies after they were already in theaters either because he was a staunch perfectionist or he accidentally switched the medication to control his obsessive compulsive disorder with tic-tacs.

A Director’s Cut was usually a chance to get a cleaner version of the film due to interference from studios, producers, or test screening audiences. There are Director’s Cuts which provide a lot of additional insight into their movies. Normally that insight being ‘Man, this was better before they went back in and made everything too damn long’. I certainly felt that working my way through »
