Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Funny and informative, this is the most violent, best (and possibly only) game show about crafting.
I've only seen the first episode of this show, but it was pretty kick ass. Two crafters are given two rounds and two different crafts to complete under pressure. Their crafts are judged by 'expert' judges -- including that chick from 'The Apprentice.' And the winner goes up against the 'Craft Lady of Steel.'
There was a practical how-to segment and a funny in a dry way piece about the history of rhinestones. This show is cool for many reasons: the crafts were interesting (napkin rings out of sculpey, e.g.), it doesn't take itself seriously (esp. the host, who can be grating at first but comes to be likable over-the-top)and the just overall concept.
Good if you like A) crafts and/or B) comedy. The creators worked at the Daily Show, and it's clear they have comedy on the brain. The tag line at the end is "Remember, it's cheaper and easier just to buy stuff."
