87th Academy Awards: Nominations & Snubs

In: Donovan, Movies
87-academy-awards-nominations

For the first time ever, the Academy Awards unveiled all 24 categories and their nominees live. Chris Pine and directors Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams woke up early to make the announcement.

Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel led this year’s class of Oscar films with nine nominations apiece, including nods for Best Picture and Best Director. Close behind was The Imitation Game with eight. Making a big splash late in the game was Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper with six tying Boyhood. Eastwood, himself though, failed to pick up a Best Director nod.

Over on the acting front, it was pretty much status quo but with a couple of surprises. Meryl Streep extended her own record by scoring her 19th Oscar nomination. Robert Duvall at 84-years-old became the oldest male to nab an acting nomination. Now on to the snubs.

The View underwent major changes for its 18th season including a new sound stage, production team and most importantly, a revamped panel. Gone were Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters. Stepping into their seats where Nicole Wallace, Rosie Perez and a returning Rosie O’Donnell. After only fourth months on the job, it appears Rosie is out. Perez that is, according to Variety.

Perez is currently taking a break from the show this month to appear in the Broadway play Fish in the Dark. Sources say it’s understood she won’t be returning after her Broadway stint is over. Read allegedly why below.

Going Through TGIT Withdrawal?

If you answered ‘yes,’ you’re not alone. Millions of people suffer from TGIT withdrawal disorder every single day. You can blame it all on Shonda Rimes for this epidemic. Not sure if you have it? Check out this PSA from ABC to know the signs of this ‘debilitating condition.’

While several shows return this week with new programming after the holiday break, the alphabet’s powerful Thursday night lineup doesn’t come back until January 29. Absolute torture, especially regarding How To Get Away With Murder. The show, though ridiculous at times, is absolutely addictive. I especially love the gay character. So sinisterly delicious and cute.

Check out ABC’s cute promo below featuring some of your favorite Shondaland soap stars.

Neil Patrick Harris In Festive New Oscars Promo

Neil Patrick Harris is one step away from becoming the first ever EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) host. If anyone can do it, it’s NPH. Expect to get wooed, all you Grammy telecast producers.

In a new promo for the 87th Academy Awards, Harris suggests giving the gift of reminding your loved ones to tune in February 22, 2015 to watch the extravaganza. And if one of your loved ones happens to be a producer for the Grammys, even better. I’m sure he’d appreciate someone putting in a good word on his behalf.

Nominations for the 2015 Oscars will be announced on January 15. Academy Honorary Awards will be given out to Jean-Claude Carriere, Hayao Miyazaki, and Maureen O’Hara, while Harry Belafonte receives the prestigious Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. Check out the short promo below.

barbara-walters-most-fascinating-person

Although she proclaimed last year’s Most Fascinating People special was the last, Barbara Walters returned to ABC Sunday night with a 2014 edition. You can’t keep a good broad down. Not only did the alphabet network resurrect the annual special, but also super-sized it, expanding it to two full hours.

While I enjoy the special, I thought last year’s supposed final list was fitting with Hillary Rodham Clinton as her last ‘Most Fascinating Person.’ The 85-year-old journalist picked the former First Lady as her first back in 1993.

The ten personalities that made the cut this year were Scarlett Johansson, Chelsea Handler, Taylor Swift, Neil Patrick Harris, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Strahan, businessmen Elon Musk and David H. Koch and author George RR Martin. Find out below who the ‘Most Fascinating Person’ is and why Walters chose her.

once-upon-a-time-trio-of-darkness

On its mid-season winter finale airing December 14, Once Upon A Time says goodbye to Elsa and her Frozen buddies. Personally, it’s about time the ABC show ices them out.

Coming into this season I was excited but after watching the first couple of weeks I lost interest and most of the episodes have been sitting on ice on my digital recording device. Dare I say, it was worse than the Peter Pan arc from last year. Hopefully, Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis rebound with their new story arc.

A trio of evil familiar faces will make their debut this Sunday. Dubbed the Queens of Darkness, Maleficent (Kristin Bauer Van Straten), Ursula (Merrin Dungey) and Cruella de Vil (Victoria Smurfit) head over to Storybrooke to wreak havoc. Smurfit really looks the part, but I feel Dungey was miscast. Too bad they didn’t call on RuPaul to play the Little Mermaid villain.

Entertainment Weekly speaks with Horowitz and Kitsis about the second half of this season and shares a few exclusive pics. Head over to EW.com to read what they have in store for us, along with how the producers decide which beloved characters they’re going to use next.

Revenge could’ve easily signed off after the Season 3 finale. Everything seemed perfectly tied up. Emily had finally gotten her revenge. Girl deserved some time to relax and decompress after scheming for years.

This season of Revenge has been lackluster to say the least. But that all changed during last night’s mid-season finale. I definitely didn’t see that coming.

I’m not going to spoil it for those who haven’t seen it, but one of the stars is speaking about the shocking turn of events. Josh Bowman who plays Daniel Grayson chats with Entertainment Weekly about last night’s developments.

abc-selfie-canceled-forever

Two on-the-bubble freshmen series received very different news today. ABC ordered more episodes for one but halted production on the other. Care to make any guesses?

If you picked Selfie as the one who received bad news, you get a gold star. The alphabet network ruled out buying more episodes beyond its initial order of 13. Though ABC hasn’t made it official, Selfie is essentially canceled.

No word on whether ABC plans to air the remaining episodes or simply burn them off online as the network has previously done before. Personally, I enjoyed the show and think it fell victim to the Cougar Town syndrome. Good sitcom hindered by a polarizing title.
