Meryl Streep, indisputably one of the greatest living actresses (if not the greatest) has earned an astounding 19 Oscar nominations in just twice as many years.
The 88th annual Academy Award nominations were announced this morning. "The Revenant" did well, snagging the most nominations: 12, including Best Picture, Best Director, and, of course, Best Actor. Not doing so well were actors of color, all of whom are noticeably absent.
It's the day before the Oscar nominations are announced, and that means Razzies! Yes, the nominees for the awards that celebrate the best of the worst have been announced.
The 73rd annual Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning. On the movie side, "Carol" cleaned up, garnering the most nominations (five), while "The Big Short," "The Revenant," and "Steve Jobs" each earned four. Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Lawrence, who got no love in yesterday's SAG award nominations, were nominated, while Toms Hardy and Hanks were shut out again. And while Mark Ruffalo didn't nominated for "Spotlight," he did get one for "Infinitely Polar Bear," a movie few people had even heard of.
No this isn't a fake trailer. Or, some mash-up somebody made on reddit. But...
What in the world is this?! It's wonderful to go into something without expectations this day in age, so I won't spoil anything. Just watch it, I guess.
It did get a little traction at its release back in October but it popped back up on reddit today and nobody here had seen it. It appears to be a strange tourism add for Macau, but altogether... it's just kinda...strange, right?
***I apologize for the strange link and the subtitling, which makes me feel kinda icky, because that means money probably isn't going to the correct people. I just can't find a more official looking video! If somebody can find me one, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll replace this video with a better one.

Robert De Niro sees some similarities between the dynamic between he and Martin Scorsese had in the early part of his career and the one between Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell now.
The 2016 SAG award nominations were announced this morning. A few notable names were left off the list (no Jennifer Lawrence) while other categories had pretty much what everyone expected (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series). Critical favorite "Spotlight" got a few nominations, but missed out on the best actor categories. And "Creed" is nowhere to be seen, despite buzz for stars Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone.
