Damien Chazelle Can't Quit the Jazz Damien Chazelle Can't Quit the Jazz

Here’s just what the world needs, now: a “musical-drama series” set in Paris produced by the man who made Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling soft-shoe to jazz, Damien Chazelle.

How I, a Citizen of Los Angeles, Celebrated 'La La Land Day' How I, a Citizen of Los Angeles, Celebrated 'La La Land Day'

Yesterday Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti declared April 25, 2017 “La La Land Day” to celebrate the film’s DVD release, because that’s a normal thing for a government official to do and the movie studio still had some cash leftover in the marketing budget and Garcetti is probably going to run for Governor.

Faye Dunaway Is Still Wondering, 'Why Didn't I See Emma Stone's Name on the Top of the Card?' Faye Dunaway Is Still Wondering, 'Why Didn't I See Emma Stone's Name on the Top of the Card?'

Oh right, it’s been roughly two months and we haven’t really heard from Faye Dunaway about what happened on the Oscars stage when she mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture, when Moonlight actually won. Dunaway says she felt “very guilty.”

Is the 'Oscar Curse' Real, or Just More Fake News? Is the 'Oscar Curse' Real, or Just More Fake News?

After watching Moonlight nab Best Picture during one of the most exciting moments in Oscar history, it took us a few hours for Madeleine and me to calm down. But after regaining composure we sat down to dissect the glorious mess of an evening, from the winningest films to the winningest feuds, for the latest episode…

The Wildest Crowd Reaction Shots to Last Night's Moonlight/La La Land Upset The Wildest Crowd Reaction Shots to Last Night's Moonlight/La La Land Upset

Sunday night’s amazing live TV mess was incredible to watch, but we mostly got the perspective of the audience viewing the unfolding confusion. In the crowd there was a more subtle and joyful confusion simultaneously unfolding.

Moonlight Wins Best Picture After La La Land Fake-Out Shocker!!!!

If you’re like me, you watch awards shows primarily for the fuck-ups and then in the off chance that great art will be recognized. Those two factors occurred simultaneously to make what was quite possibly the most shocking, thrilling, genuinely rewarding, and flat-out best moment in Oscars history. Warren Beatty and…

Here Is Samuel L. Jackson Being Forced to Give La La Land An Oscar

La La Land won the Oscar for Best Original Song. The award was handed out by Samuel L. Jackson. He presented the statue to three white men who won an award for making jazz music.

The Heat From Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Burns Suffocated All Possible Shade The Heat From Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Burns Suffocated All Possible Shade

First of all, a huge shout out to all the non-Trump related shade sent to me this week. Communication is the most important part of any relationship; you guys listened, and I thank you for that.

The Winner Is Not La La Land The Winner Is Not La La Land

Weekend box office numbers helped push Hidden Figures past La La Land to become 2016's highest-grossing Oscar nominee, with a total of $119.5 million. La La Land, still a success, stands at $118.2 million. Per EW, Hidden Figures’ SAG Awards win could give it an Oscar boost for best picture.

What the Fuck Kind of Monstrosity Does Ryan Gosling Pull Out of the Oven in La La Land? What the Fuck Kind of Monstrosity Does Ryan Gosling Pull Out of the Oven in La La Land?

La La Land is a movie carried by talented actors doing their best with what they were given. One of the things they were given was this hideous souffle-cake chimera which Ryan Gosling believably portrays as food.

The Academy Really Loves La La Land: Here Are the 2017 Oscar Nominees The Academy Really Loves La La Land: Here Are the 2017 Oscar Nominees

The mother of all award shows is almost here, but before Jimmy Kimmel can bore us with jokes about how much Donald Trump loved Zoolander 2 or how Melania hopes Room wins again this year, we need to know who’s in the running.

We Watch Awards Shows Because Moonlight Won We Watch Awards Shows Because Moonlight Won

At some point during every award show, a famous person—often a famous person I like and perhaps even admire—will say something that sucks me out of the otherwise pleasant experience of watching celebrities congratulate each other for being good at their jobs. The moment involves said famous person (usually holding a…

The Year in Overrated Pop Culture The Year in Overrated Pop Culture

“A MASTERPIECE” reads the poster of Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea in a font larger than the title. It’s a font so large that the blur of motion doesn’t render it illegible—it’s in, I think, every subway station along New York’s L line, which means I’m confronted at least a few times on most days with “A…

The Case Against La La Land The Case Against La La Land

“That’s L.A.—they worship everything and they value nothing,” sighs Ryan Gosling’s La La Land character Sebastian. I’m not sure if this is a critique or a mission statement. Perhaps it’s both. Certainly, a movie that forces you to endure Gosling and Emma Stone sing multiple songs is trading in the crass depths of…

Meet The Anonymous "Friends" Of Tabloid Celebs Meet The Anonymous "Friends" Of Tabloid Celebs

Meet the "club girl," which the LA TImes defines as "a glamorous breed of covert reporters who infiltrate Hollywood's VIP sanctums to write celebrity exposés for the tabloids." We'll define this as a job no kindergartner should aspire to.

Looking for a thriller? A drama? What Netflix would call a "strong female lead?" If you haven't seen Winter's Bone, here's one of the best characters — let alone a young, female character — to come along in years:
