The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

...umm, Kevin Hart...!

Re: R.I.P. George H.W. Bush

Re: Major Changes to Oscar Telecast

I'm guessing it's too much to ask that they go back to the standard five nominees for Best Picture? Introducing a Popcorn Oscar is a knee-jerk reaction to a decade of the failed expanded slate that only introduced dreck to the proceedings - if they're planning to ghettoize the popular movies, do awa...

Major Changes to Oscar Telecast
