Studio71 To Forgo In-Person NewFronts Event In Favor Of Digital Presentation

The leadup to the 2017 edition of the NewFronts has been hectic, with major media companies like BuzzFeed, Fullscreen, and Yahoo opting out of the annual series of pitches to potential advertisers. Now, another participant has decided to switch up its spiel. Digital media company Studio71 has announced that it will stream its NewFronts presentation online rather than hosting an in-person gathering in New York.

Studio71’s NewFronts address will be filmed at the company’s Los Angeles headquarters and will be streamed privately for advertisers. For each view the broadcast generates, Studio71 will donate $1 to We.org, which assists underprivileged youths around the world. During its presentation, Studio71 is expected to reveal new programs and initiatives built around its roster of partners, which includes top online video stars like Lilly Singh (pictured above) and Rachel Levin as well as Hollywood notables like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

PewDiePie Hits 40 Million YouTube Subscribers, Adds 18,000+ Subs Per Day

Another week. Another inconceivable online video milestone is surpassed by PewDiePie. Less than two months after the twentysomething Felix Kjellberg became the first individual on Earth with a YouTube channel to receive more than 10,000,000,000 views, the Swede’s online video repository for Let’s Play videos, weekly-or-so personal vlogs, charitable campaigns, and high-pitched irreverence also became the first YouTube channel with more than 40 million subscribers.

PewDiePie crossed the 40,000,000 subscriber mark sometime on Saturday, October 24. The biggest channel on YouTube hit 39 million subscribers back on Monday, August 31. That means it took PewDiePie 55 days to recruit the latest million members to his Bro Army, which equals out to more than 18,180 new subscribers per day, 757 new subs per hour, 12 new subs per minute, and roughly one new subscriber every 4.75 seconds.

YouTube, Vine Stars On Smoking Cigarettes: “It’s A Trap!”

A quartet of online video stars have a message for prospective smokers. Ryan Higa, Rachel Levin, Christian DelGrosso, and Jerry Purpdrank all appear in the Truth campaign’s latest video, which channels Admiral Ackbar and warns that “social smoking” is a trap.

In the video, the participating YouTube and Vine stars offer up various rationalizations for why it’s ok to smoke. As soon as the words leave their mouths, various image macro characters show up to deliver a recurring three-word response: “It’S A Trap!” The video certainly panders to its intended audience, but it also succeeds in getting its message across.

Truth, which has been active since the late 90s, has partnered with online video stars as part of its ongoing campaign to combat youth smoking. It previously enlisted several of the Internet’s most prominent influencers for an utterly ridiculous music video called “Left Swipe Dat,” which

Streep Nom #7-8: The Abundant Riches of 1987-88

We've been looking at each Meryl Streep Oscar nod and its competitive field. Previously: 78, 79, 81, 82, 83 and 85

Meryl Streep's first act was the Liberated Lady. The second was The Chameleon in which Meryl was always the lead, always had new hair, voice and body language and basically controlled Oscar's Universe. It was as if there was only 4 spots for Best Actress, one reserved for her in perpetuity. This second act ended with her intense immersion into notorious dingo-hating Lindy Chamberlain in A Cry in the Dark. [Editor's Note: Yes, I'll do a top ten performance list when "Streep at 60" wraps in mid July. I've heard your requests and I've been rewatching all the movies.]

Starting in 1989 Act III of Streep's career began but we'll get to that shortly. First, let's look at her competition in the last two years of her legendary Act II.
