The Worst Oscars Ever! (At Least in Terms of Hot Takes)

One of the few unquestioned highlights of this year’s Academy Awards was the live performance of Best Original Song nominee “Everything is Awesome” from The LEGO Movie. Tegan and Sara and the Lonely Island performed, Oprah got her very own LEGO Oscar, and Will Arnett moaned about darkness and no parents while wearing Val Kilmer’s Batsuit from Batman Forever. It was a great moment, but one that was totally out of touch with the spirit of the evening. According to almost every pundit and critic, everything was decidedly not awesome about the 87th Oscars.

The Five Most Pleasant Surprises Among the 2015 Oscar Nominees

Okay, so there was a fair amount of disappointment around the 2015 Academy Award nominations. Everything was not awesome for ‘The Lego Movie,’ robbed of a Best Animated Movie nod, and David Oyelowo’s dreams of a Best Actor nomination vanished when Steve Carell and Bradley Cooper’s names were mentioned instead. ‘Force Majeure’ got snubbed for a Best Foreign Language Film nomination and ‘Selma’’s Ava Duvernay was robbed in the Best Director Category. I just keep looking at the list of nominations and playing “Sad Trombone” over and over again. It’s basically the official theme song of the 2015 Academy Awards.

What Was The Best Part Of The Oscars? Ellen’s JC Penny Commercials [VIDEO]

I was looking forward to the return of Billy Crystal as the host of the Academy Awards last night and overall he did a fairly decent job, there were some funny parts and one liners.  But honestly the best part of the Oscar's had nothing to do with the awards, for me it was the new Ellen DeGeneres' JC Penny commercials.

Dale’s Daily Data: Steven Spielberg

Virtually all of his films have been box office smashes.   Among them – the blockbusters – “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, “Jaws”, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, “E.T.”, “Poltergeist”, “Back to the Future”, “Cape Fear”, “The Color Purple”, “Jurassic Park”, “Bat Man”, “War of the Worlds”.  He won his second best director Oscar for “Saving Private Ryan”.  But it was his 1993 film “Schindler’s List” that may have brought Steven Spielberg his greatest satisfaction.  The story of a German factory owner who saved the lives of his Jewish workers during World War Two won him Oscars for best picture, best screenplay and best director.
