“Belfast,” “The Power Of The Dog” Lead Golden Globes Nominees

HOLLYWOOD—Well, I am quite surprised that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is still going through with a 2022 ceremony for the Golden Globe Awards after a massive controversy that organization endured in 2021 and in previous years about diversity issues in its membership. The interesting element is rather any celebrities are planning to attend the ceremony on January 9...

HOLLYWOOD—The 2021 Grammy Nominees were announced on Tuesday, November 23 and per usual the Grammy Nominations left a few people left, a few people left and many wondering what happened to the Grammys that didn’t have 10 to 15 people nominated in a single category.

2021 MTV Video Music Awards

NEW YORK—Well, it looks like MTV actually cares about music again people. The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards kicked off with a small monologue by music icon Madonna who took to the stage to introduce Justin Bieber.

Megan Thee Stallion Big Winner At BET Awards

HOLLYWOOD—This was an awards show that I religiously watched about 15 years ago. It was an awards show that celebrated Black excellence and was actually entertaining, full of surprises and delivered musical performances that people were talking about the next day during the water cooler conversation at work.

The Weeknd Top Winner At Billboard Music Awards

LOS ANGELES—I will admit I channel surfed while watching the 2021 Billboard Music Awards that were handed out on Sunday, May 23. Yes, it’s a piece of normalcy, but I’m over award shows giving high praise to celebrities, especially after the chaos we endured as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are just so many other things of...

2021 NAACP Image Awards

HOLLYWOOD—I honestly wish awards season was just cancelled for 2021. The virtual ceremony just doesn’t work people. It doesn’t matter how hard you attempt to make the ceremony entertaining, having the audience as a virtual audience is not the same as having people live in person America.
