2019 Emmy Award Nominations

The Emmy Awards honor the best creative teams and the performers in television. This year saw the end of an era for Game of Thrones, while other miniseries dramas like Chernobyl, The Marvelous Ms. Maisel, and When They See Us clearly exceeded our expectations.

Though the final season of Game of Thrones may have been very polarizing, it didn’t seem to faze the television academy, as it awarded HBO’s highest-rated drama with a record-setting 32 nominations. HBO’s miniseries Chernobyl received 19 nominations, and their comedy Veep snagged two nominations. Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Fleabag also have nominations of their own, with the former having 20, and the latter having four – unfortunately Andrew Scott got snubbed. And Netflix’s When They See Us is the streaming site’s biggest winner. They have 16 nominations.

Check out the list of the major nominees for the 2019 Emmy Awards below.

Steven Spielberg Doesn’t Think Netflix-Created Films Should Be Considered For Oscars

Indiana Jones Crystal Skull Steven Spielberg Harrison Ford

When Roma took home three Oscars (Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Cinematography), it showed that Netflix was able to be more than just a streaming service. And with other services like Hulu and Amazon also producing and releasing their own films, it’s very likely other studios are going to have to compete with them during awards season. But with the times changing, there are those who would like things to remain the same. At least, in terms of how people should see movies and categorize them.

One of those people is Steven Spielberg. You know, the guy who gave us films like E.T., Jurassic Park, and Schindler’s List. The director isn’t exactly a fan of Netflix’s approach to releasing films, and will now be taking his grievances to the Academy this coming April to talk about how streaming and traditionally released films should be treated. More on the report here below.

Netflix had an outsized presence at the 2019 Oscars despite their unconventional way of distributing films.(image Courtesy of Vulture.com)

The 2019 Oscars or Academy Awards were like no other. There was a superhero film up for Best Picture and a superhero film actually won for Best Animated Feature. Among top films to come away a winner this year was an Alfonso Curaón film named Roma. It scored an industry first in that despite the fact that it was available for viewers to stream on Netflix even as it was still playing in theaters, Roma was not only a serious contender for competitive awards like Best Director and Best Picture, it actually won three of the four awards it was nominated for.

Green Book

The 91st Annual Academy Awards ceremony was broadcasted live on ABC on Sunday night, February 24, 2018, from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, CA, this year purposely without a host (and truthfully, it worked beautifully).

Check out the list of all the winners from Oscars 2019, along with several highlights from this year’s Academy Awards ceremony, most of which have accompanying videos.

Oscars 2019: Ranking The 8 Best Picture Nominees

A Star Is Born Review Header

Saying the road to the 91st Academy Annual Awards has been a rocky one would be the understatement of a lifetime. Controversy after controversy and bad decision after worse decision has made a mess of this year’s Oscars. It started with the announcement that the Academy was considering new categories for Best Popular Film. That was met with disdain from the public who saw this as a cheap attempt to get MCU fans to watch the Oscars and boost ratings. Things spiraled from there. Kevin Hart was announced and then retracted as Oscar host, leaving the show hostless. Then just a week ago, the Academy announced that four major awards wouldn’t make the live broadcast, including those for editing and cinematography. The universal backlash led the Academy to cave on that decision as well. Everything the Academy has done in an attempt to boost the dwindling ratings has backfired and alienated the people who actually still watch the awards show.

All this could have been for naught in a what I thought was a tremendous year for movies, but the Academy nominated a safe and underwhelming field of Best Picture nominees. In a year where exciting new and original filmmakers delved deep into a smorgasbord of issues, the Academy tried to placate the viewers with a satisfying yet overall unimpressive Top 8. I’ve seen all eight films and here is my ranking of the Best Picture Nominees of the year.

Academy Reverses Decision To Present 4 Awards During Commercial Breaks

Academy Awards Statues

It’s amazing how much public outrage towards a bad decision can force an organization like the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to reverse it. Last week, the Academy announced that it would present the awards for Cinematography, Editing, Make-Up and Hairstyling, and Live Action Short during commercial breaks instead of during the live broadcast as usual. It was something that did not sit well with anyone, especially those within those respective categories.

Now in a decision that will not surprise anyone, the Academy has decided to award the winners live during the Oscar telecast. More on the report here below.

Academy Says 4 Oscar Awards Will Be Presented During Commercial Breaks

Academy Awards Statues

So after the Academy resolved the Kevin Hart hosting debacle for the upcoming 91st Annual Academy Awards ceremony and the singing of only two Best Original Songs, they’ve managed to find themselves still mixed in controversy. With the annual awards show just 13 days away, the organization has announced that they will be presenting four Academy Awards during commercial breaks instead of during the live broadcast. So for those DPs out there who love Cinematography or those who love Editing, or those who enjoy Film Shorts, or those who create unique looks for characters with Makeup and Hairstyling, well, you won’t be seeing those awards being presented live because those are the four categories being given out during commercial breaks. More on the report here below.

Roma

Alfonso Cuaron‘s Roma is proving itself to be this year’s major awards contender. Having won multiple awards in various guilds and societies, Cuaron’s love letter to 1970s Mexico just nabbed even more awards at this year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). The film took home Best Film and Best Director. A truly impressive run for the Netflix film. However, it fell short of winning some performance awards, some of which went to The Favourite‘s Olivia Colman, who won Best Actress, and Rachel Weisz, who won Best Supporting Actress.

Grammys 2019

The Grammys were held on Sunday night, February 10, 2019, and were hosted this time around by 15-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Alicia Keys, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with the live broadcast on CBS.

Below are some of the highlights and clips from the broadcast of The 61th Annual Grammy Awards, along with the full list of Grammy winners at the end.

Having Keys host this year was a major change in tone from the previous two years, which were led by comedian and late-night talk-show host James Corden. Instead of comedy throughout, Keys focused on highlighting the talent and careers of the presenters, nominees, winners, and performers.

Roma

The Director’s Guild of America honors the incredible achievements of directors. And this year, we had an extraordinary list of nominees in both film and television. Most of whom are already nominated for Oscars or Emmys.

This year, The DGA Awards recognized Bradley Cooper for A Star is Born, Peter Farrelly for Green Book, Spike Lee for BlacKkKlansman, and Adam McKay for Vice. But it was Alfonso Cuaron who took home the prize for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for his work on Roma. Check out more winners below.
