Approximately 10,000 dogs and cats will be slaughtered and eaten in the course of the next 10 days at southern China’s annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Celebrities have teamed up with the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation to film a PSA to raise awareness for this heinous practice of torturing dogs in China and other Southeast Asian countries every year.

Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Maggie Q, Russell Simmons, Kristen Bell, Joaquin Phoenix, Sia, Alicia Silverstone and Pamela Anderson are just a few who are speaking out against the Yulin festival which has been occurring since 2010.

Having a dog myself, naturally I’m in favor of ending this festival but I can’t help but feel a little hypocritical given that I’m not a vegetarian and enjoy chicken, pork etc… What are your thoughts? Share them after watching the emotional clip below. The graphic nature might be unsettling for some viewers especially if you have a pet.

88th-academy-awards-nominations

Nominations for the 88th Annual Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning inside the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills. Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs along with directors Guillermo Del Toro and Ang Lee and actor John Krasinski took turns revealing the nominations.

Leading the pack with 12 nods in all was Alejandro González Iñárritu’s frontier revenge tale, The Revenant. It scored Best Director, Best Picture and Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio to name a few. Nipping at its heels in second place was Mad Max: Fury Road with 10 nods, followed by The Martian and Carol with seven and six respectively.

I’m glad to see that sentimental favorite Sylvester Stallone got noticed for Creed. Having scored another nomination for playing Rocky Balboa is a great story. He could conceivably snag his first Oscar. The original Rocky won Best Picture, but Stallone wasn’t a producer. The categories he was nominated in, Best Actor and Best Screenplay, he didn’t win.

The awards will be handed out on February 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, beginning at 7pm EST on ABC. Check out all the nominees below.

Heading into the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, Carol lead the pack with five nominations. Sadly, the 50s-set lesbian love story walked away empty-handed, failing to win in any of the categories it was nominated for. The Big Short was also shut out, not able to convert any of its four nods into wins.

The news was quite different for The Revenant. The grizzly drama won three of the four awards it was up for including Best Picture Drama and Best Actor for Leonardo Dicaprio. The Martian also did quite well, taking home two statues.

Over on the television front, Mr. Robot was the sole multiple winner with two- Best Television Series Drama and Best Supporting Performance in a Series for Christian Slater. Lady Gaga beat out Kirsten Dunst for Best Performance in a Miniseries. Check out all the winners below.
