    by Lynn Foster “The Communist Manifesto” got a shoutout during the 2020 Oscars. Julia Reichert, the co-director of best documentary winner “American Factory,” which was produced by former President Barack Obama’s new film company, apparently quoted from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’ infamous book during her acceptance speech on Sunday night. “Working people have it harder and harder these days — and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite,” Reichert said. The quote was a riff on the last lines of the 1848 political document, which are frequently translated from German as “Workers of the...

    Ricky Gervais, the perpetually snarky British comedian, set social media on fire after he mocked arrogant Hollywood in his opening monologue when hosting the Golden Globes. "So if you do win an award tonight, don't use it as a platform to make a political speech, right?" he said. "You're in no position to lecture the public -- about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg." Uh-oh. Gervais explained that his approach was to mock the "privileged egos in the room" as if he were "the bloke sitting at...

    Did you ever stop to wonder who granted moral authority to famous actors and actresses? Did you ever ask yourself why their opinions should carry extra weight? After all, it’s one thing to be a certain person, such as a political leader or an athlete or a cancer survivor and to speak from your experience. It’s another thing to make believe you were that person. How does making believe qualify you to speak? At the moment, Ricky Gervais’ scathing takedown of woke Hollywood at the Golden Globes Sunday night is getting all the attention it deserves. And, according to the...

    Hollywood took more heavy fire at this year’s Golden Globes than General Soleimani catching a flight out of Bagdhad. Dave Chappelle has dropped some bunker busters recently, too. Seinfeld and Bill Maher never really retreated to their credit. Just last month, Eddie Murphy returned to the fight, armed with nothing more than his trusty, old-fashioned funny. There’s good news to report from the theater of comedy combat, America. The decorated generals of joke-telling are beginning to gain ground again in the war on comedy.The enemy is today’s political left who, for years, have been on the march to silence jokes they’ve...

    Congresswoman Maxine Waters called for President Donald Trump to be impeached at the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday night. During her acceptance speech of the Chairman's Award, Waters took aim at the commander-in-chief and Attorney General William Barr for 'holding' Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report about Russia's involvement during the 2016 election. '[I] haven't forgotten about 45. He's appointed an attorney general who thinks he can hold the Special Counsel's report from the American people,' she said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 'I still think he needs to be impeached.'

    The Oscars ceremony will not have an official host this year, an Academy spokesperson confirmed to NBC News. Variety reported earlier that the Oscars will instead recruit stars for various roles in place of "one marquee name to kick things off in a monologue filled with Trump zingers." Comedian Kevin Hart in December stepped down from hosting the Oscars after past homophobic tweets resurfaced. ABC's new entertainment chief says this year's pre-Oscars disarray had an upside.

    Following Kevin Hart’s announcement that he was bowing out of as host of the 2019 Academy Awards, a report on Monday suggested that organizers behind the annual event are considering airing next year’s telecast without a host. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences is exploring all options, sources with knowledge of the situation told Variety. The show may go sans host, an insider told the outlet, and instead would feature “a bunch of huge celebs, something ‘SNL’ style, and buzzy people to throw to commercial.”

    Hollywood may have laughed when Emmys host Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are "Republicans and ex-crackheads," but Tinseltown's latest middle finger to Middle America fell flat in flyover country, and may have contributed to the telecast's all-time low viewership. Co-host Michael Che left many viewers of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards upset during the opening monologue with his fellow "Saturday Night Live" star Colin Jost, explaining that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night. "She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough," Che...

I want to thank God. I always do that when I'm up on a big platform in front of a bunch of young faces. I say, 'I love God!' That's my thing, I love Him — and you should too!" Pratt declared while accepting the "Choice Summer Movie Actor" award for "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" along with his co-star Bryce Dallas Howard. Earlier this year, Pratt made a similar...

    The 2018 Billboard Music Awards hit a new low Sunday night in the coveted demographic of ages 18-49, dropping 10 percent from last year’s low in overnight numbers.

  • This Year’s Best Picture Nominees Have the Lowest Grosses in Six Years

    When it comes to box office grosses, the Oscars are no popularity contest. This year’s crop of best picture nominees have received critical plaudits and trunkloads of awards. But that has not, for the most part, translated into massive ticket sales. Only “Get Out” and “Dunkirk” have topped $100 million at the domestic box office and could comfortably be labeled blockbusters. As it stands, this is the lowest-grossing crop of best picture contenders since 2011, a fact that should be sending shivers up the spine of ABC executives as they brace for the March 4 telecast. “The Oscars are rewarding...

    LONDON - All eyes were on Duchess Catherine over the weekend when she attended the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTA Awards. Kate Middleton, who is expecting her third child with the Duke of Cambridge, arrived at the Sunday event with Prince William. Much like award shows in the United States, attendees at the London event were encouraged to wear all black in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives at this year’s BAFTAs, which are the British equivalent to the Oscars. Duchess Catherine opted for a green cap-sleeved gown and coordinating...

    Time isn’t up at the Grammys. Only one woman won an award during the main event at the music celebration Sunday night — Alessia Cara, who took home the Best New Artist. The rest of the categories were overwhelmingly dominated by men, particularly Bruno Mars, who swept song, record and album of the year categories. Even the best pop song category, which boasted four female nominees out of five, went to Ed Sheeran for “Shape of You.”

    Kelsey Harkness of the Federalist noticed an interesting facet of this year’s Glamour magazine’s “2017 Women of the Year Awards." Despite plenty to choose from, none of the recipients of the female only awards were conservative. In fact, it appears that many of the award winners won these awards because of their liberal leanings. Harkness writes: "In all, Glamour honored 10 women at a splashy Brooklyn award show this week. No less than half were in part recognized for their advocacy on behalf of liberal causes. Of its decision to honor model Gigi Hadid as “The Supernova,” Glamour wrote: “[W]hile a...

    The 51st Annual CMA Awards saw the best in county music come together, but it was Garth Brooks that took home the top prize, being crowned entertainer of the year. "The most important thing other than God Himself is you, the poeple who allow us to be in the greatest music ever. Country music man," the star said while accepting his award. "I love you." The show started off on a somber note and quickly segued into political quips with hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley mocking the president. The evening began with the first verse of “Amazing Grace” performed...
