“General Hospital” Wins Big At Daytime Emmy Awards

HOLLYWOOD—I thought I would never see the day that the Daytime Emmy Awards would return to TV, but they are back and rightfully so.

The ceremony was hosted by Nichelle Turner and Kevin Frazier, who...

“Euphoria,” “Spider-Man” MTV Movie And TV Awards Winners

SANTA MONICA—Awards season may be over, but it still lingers throughout the year. On Sunday, June 5, the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards were held with actress Vanessa Hudgens hosting festivities. The “Emily in Paris” bit was not hilarious and that “House of Gucci” bit didn’t have me rolling off the couch people. The “Top Gun” bit was...

HOLLYWOOD HILLS—Well awards season is coming to end, as the 2022 Academy Awards, better known as the Oscars were handed out on Sunday, March 27 from the famed Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

2022 Oscar Predictions

HOLLYWOOD—I am usually excited about the Academy Awards, but for 2022 I don’t feel that much excitement and I quite don’t know why. It could be the pandemic, the unpredictability of awards season or the fact that I have a very strong idea, as I have had in the past about who will walk away with the golden statue...

“Power Of The Dog” Nabs Top BAFTA Awards

HOLLYWOOD—There were two award shows on Sunday, March 13, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts and the Critic’s Choice Awards. Look, I’ve never been a fan of the CTA simply because critics tend to be too opinionated and sometimes are out of touch with the American people. Maybe we will talk more about that ceremony later. The...

SANTA MONICA—Yeah, its official awards season is back people and I have indeed missed it.

“CODA” Wins Big At 2022 SAG Awards

Now the actor has not handed out at the iconic Shrine Auditorium...

Academy Awards Not Acknowledging All Categories

HOLLYWOOD—This is quite baffling and frustrating as a filmmaker. I have always been prone to watching the Academy Awards or Oscars as many people know them. It is the pinnacle of all awards shows, but for people like myself who are inspiring filmmakers it gives you an inside glimpse into the Hollywood elite and how they are acknowledged and...
