Fandango To Bring Its Video Library To Hulu

On January 11th, the Golden Globe Awards will honor the best films and television shows of the previous year. Four days later, this year's Oscar nominees will be announced. Yes, it's awards season once again, and as per usual, Fandango is right at the forefront. The ticketing service, which also distributes a number of film-related web series, will bring its video library to Hulu, where it will have its own dedicated channel.

While all of Fandango's web content centers around movies, the site's library is fairly diverse. Series range from Weekend Ticket, which looks at upcoming box office debuts, to Reel Kids, in which children offer their opinions on recent films.

Here's a recent episode, in which host Dave Karger and guest Krista Smith predict which films will receive this year's Best Picture nominations.

Fandango's web video presence also encompasses MovieClips,

When you're a guy like Tom Cruise who's starred in a ridiculous amount of movies stretched across three decades, you'd think at some point they would begin to blend together. Okay maybe not entirely -- we're sure the guy remembers his movies, but does he also remember all the little details?
