Host Minhaj opened the evening by noting the odd contrast of handing out awards for excellence in TV and digital media at a venue in the heart of the financial district, Cipriani Wall Street.
“This is the wokest award show in the least woke location,” Minhaj joked. “Are the Pulitzers being handed out at Mar-a-Lago?” Later in the ceremony, Minhaj had a zinger for Vice President Mike Pence. He noted that most people were unsettled by the themes in one of 2017’s honorees, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “unless of course you’re the Vice President, and then this show is the breakout comedy of the year.”
Leading out of that, Agents of Shield‘s season finale (1.9 mil/0.5, TVLine reader grade “B+”) dipped in audience while flat in the demo. (S.H.I.E.L.D. returns in Summer 2019, with a shortened Season 6.)

“Infinity War” held on to the top spot with $54.2 million in its second weekend, according to data from Ent Group. That marks a 72% drop from its opening weekend, but it lifts the film’s total to $302 million after just 10 days on release.

But what will Oscar voters think?
That’s always a tricky question, because the connection between the world’s most prestigious film festival and the world’s most celebrated film award can fluctuate wildly. In 2011, for example, three of the films that screened at the festival — “The Artist,” “The Tree of Life” and “Midnight in Paris” — landed Best Picture nominations, with “The Artist” winning.
But the success rate hasn’t approached that since then, although 2016 had an impressive across-the-board showing: One Best Picture nominee (“Hell of High Water”), the Best Foreign Language Film winner (“The Salesman”), six other nominees in the Best Actress,

After catching the eye of talent scouts, Morison signed a contract with Paramount Pictures and
To oversee the mastering of the new 70mm prints, Warner Bros. brought in a filmmaker they’ve worked with for over a decade and who is a devoted fan of Kubrick: Christopher Nolan.

By the time this year’s awards ceremony was over, the mission, as always, felt like it had been accomplished. A new auteur had been crowned high king: Japan’s Hirokazu Kore-eda, whose winning of the Palme d’Or for “Shoplifters,” a tale of family, poverty, and social injustice, had an “It’s time” earnestness about it.
