“Everything Everywhere All At Once” Leads The Nominations For The 2023 Critics Choice Awards
Choices, choices, choices! When did there get to be so many choices? Earlier this month at the People’s Choice Awards, the People had their say and chose Mariska Hargitay to get upstaged by Kathy Hilton and Olivia Wilde’s nipples. And now it’s time for the Critics to nominate their choices for future choosing at the 2023 Critics Choice Awards. And maybe because the Critics are canonically more critical than the People, they’ve chosen Everything Everywhere All at Once over Olivia’s nipples, which along with Don’t Worry Darling, were left out of the choices for future choosing altogether. Why, in my day, three white men with cigars in a secret Hollywood backroom made all the choices over the flayed body of a virgin sacrifice, but nowadays, it seems, everybody gets to choose!
W Magazine Has Released Their Annual “Best Performances” List For 2022
If this year’s Golden Globes flop is any indication, big glitzy awards shows might not be as important as they once were. That opens the door to just about any old body to swoop in and declare they’ve predicted the Oscars. W Magazine has just published their annual Best Performances issue and unlike the GGs, they were actually able to get all the big-name celebrities into hair and makeup, including Oscar-hungry Lady Gaga. So you better believe she was ready for her close-up when W Magazine called!
Lady Gaga And Kristen Stewart’s Fans Might Be Messing Up Their Oscar Campaigns
Ah, stan culture. Perfect if you’re a famous person who enjoys the enthusiastic and aggressive loyalty of an army of deeply-invested and forever-obsessed strangers, but not so great when you’re campaigning for a legitimate award, apparently. According to Rolling Stone, Lady Gaga and Kristen Stewart might be facing some slim chances of getting an Oscar. And it’s all because the Little Monsters and the Twihards are reportedly fucking things up for them by getting way too invested in their respective Oscar campaigns. Okay, they need to calm down and stop taking this so seriously. I mean, Kristen Stewart claims she doesn’t even give a shit about an Oscar!
Netflix Has Removed Shia LaBeouf’s Name From Its Awards Consideration Page
We’re about to dive head-first into awards season, which should have been good news for Shia LaBeouf, considering he appeared in a movie this year that has been getting some awards show buzz. Shia starred alongside Vanessa Kirby in Netflix’s Pieces of a Woman, which – judging by the trailer – is prime Oscar nomination bait. And originally Netflix’s For Your Consideration awards campaign included Shia’s name, but his name is suddenly no longer anywhere to be seen.
Bradley Cooper Thinks Awards Season Is “Utterly Meaningless”
Clearly, Bradley Cooper is still feeling the sting of missing out on that Best Director Oscar nomination for “A Star Is Born”…you know, that movie where he filmed himself as a greasy, urine-soaked has-been singer who mumbles for 2+ hours––only to have Lady Gaga swoop in and spend all of 2019 collecting lots of trophies!!! Ya, well, Bradley is letting the world know what he thinks about moviemaking and the phony tap-dancing act that comes with promoting it (SPOILER: for someone who gets in on that act, he calls it “meaningless.”)
Following Roman Polanski’s 12 Nominations, The Entire Board Of The Cesar Awards Quit
The Cesar Awards are coming right up, but even though Roman Polanski received 12 nominations this year, he might want to think about skipping the ceremony because he’s not quite as popular as those 12 nominations suggest. Turns out, it’s not just a bunch of uptight feminists who have gotten their unsexy underwear in a bunch and have objections about the continued celebration of a man who admitted to the statutory rape of a child (not to mention the more recent allegations against him). According to The National, the entire board of the Cesar Awards organization has quit, en masse, in protest of his nomination as well as their ongoing frustrations over the organization’s “opaque decision-making process” and lack of diversity. This decision by the board comes on the heels of an open letter published in Le Monde which was signed by over 400 film professionals who all said fuck. this. shit.
