The Hate U Give 2018 LAOFCS Awards Winner

As we get closer to the end of the year, more and more critic groups and guilds are releasing the nominees for the best of the year. Not all winners will be the same and that is what makes all of these guilds so special. As a member of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society, I took part in voting for the very best in film and filmmaking. This year, top honors went to A Star Is Born, with the Best Male Director going to Spike Lee for his work on BlackKklansman, and Lynne Ramsey winning Best Female Director for her work on You Were Never Really Here.

Additionally, Alfonso Cuaron won awards for Best Foreign Film and Best Cinematography and Fox Searchlight’s The Favourite Best Comedy and Best Cast. Mission: Impossible – Fallout also took home two awards for Best Action Film and Best Stunts. While Disney and Marvel’s Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War won awards for Best Blockbuster, and Best Visual Effects and Best Visual Effects or Animated Performance. Check out the full list of winners here below.

Golden Globes 2017

Hosting an awards show like the Oscars is not as glamorous as it used to be. With ratings continuing to decrease, it’s nearly impossible to find someone who wants to take on the gig. Even when they do manage to find someone, how well (or poorly) the show is received may very well be on them. So as you can see, it comes as no surprise that it has taken as long as it has to find hosts for upcoming awards shows.

Kevin Hart was just hired to host the Oscars. So not to be overshadowed, the Golden Globes will be flexing its muscles by bringing in two hosts. A very unlikely pair. New reports confirm that Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will host the 76th Golden Globe Awards. More on the report below.

Kevin Hart

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Central Intelligence, and Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire (yes it was a real thing and it was amazing) star Kevin Hart has announced that he will be hosting the 91st annual Academy Awards ceremony early next year.

Searching header image

As the end of the year rolls around critics associations and respective guilds are announcing their best of the year. The Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society, or LAOFCS for short, have recently announced their list of nominees that recognize the best in film, acting, directing, writing, and more. Additionally, they have a few other nominations that separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Awards like Best Female Director, Best Visual Effects Performance, and Best Stunts are all a part of the awards ensemble.

So while it comes as no surprise that films like A Star Is Born, If Beale Street Could Talk, and BlackKklansman have all earned nominations, there are a few surprises like Searching that could help get the film more attention. As a member of the LAOFCS, it’s great to see that there is a group of critics who recognize everything that films have to offer. From female and male directors to the young actors of tomorrow. Check out the full list below.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

It’s the end of the year, which means it is time to recognize the best that films had to offer in 2018. We can expect to see the usual guilds and groups release their nominations, and that is no different for the Annie Awards, which recognize excellence in animation. No matter the medium or technique.

As expected, films like Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks The Internet both earned 11 nominations, while Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse took seven nominations. Which is pretty disappointing considering how the film is pretty much a game-changer in terms of animation and animated storytelling. Other major contenders include Early Man and Isle of Dogs. On the TV side of things, Bob’s Burgers and BoJack Horseman earned nominations as well. Big Mouth also earned a nomination for Netflix. Although, it’s sad to see nothing went to Voltron. Check out the full list below.

Oscars 2019: The Academy’s Unpopular “Popular” Award Put On Hold

Academy Awards Statues Oscars

When the Academy announced that it would be making some changes to their signature Oscars ceremony in order to increase ratings, let’s just say it wasn’t met with a lot of praise. One of the changes included a shorter telecast, which meant we wouldn’t get to see some of the smaller Academy Awards being handed out. But the biggest change and the one that has been met with the most resistance is the introduction of the “Popular Award.”

There was no word on how a best popular film would be determined and how one would earn itself a nomination, but it looks like that award will not happen anytime soon. That’s because the Academy has decided to postpone it, at least for now.

More on the story below.
