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.

Accounting Firm PricewaterhouseCoopers: We 'Deeply Regret' Messing Up Best Picture Award Accounting Firm PricewaterhouseCoopers: We 'Deeply Regret' Messing Up Best Picture Award

The wrong movie was given the Academy Award for Best Picture Sunday night. The error was discovered several minutes later, and the award quickly (and awkwardly) switched hands to the correct movie. This was not Warren Beatty’s fault. Nor was it Faye Dunaway’s fault. It wasn’t Matt Damon or Jimmy Kimmel’s fault. No,…

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…

Most Americans Haven't Seen Any Best Picture Nominees Most Americans Haven't Seen Any Best Picture Nominees

To our ongoing delight, Janelle Monáe’s star continues to rise beyond the music world, and last night she made a stop at Conan to discuss her Oscar-nominated films Moonlight and Hidden Figures.

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…
