Oscars 2019 will be remembered for #OscarsSoDiverse ‘check’

oscars-academy-awards-best-picture-category.jpg

It was around three years ago, when The Academy was highly criticized for its Oscar Awards winners list being not diverse enough, and hence had been criticized for being #OscarsSoWhite. It was a hard criticism and corrective actions had to follow. ‘Representation matters’ – became the driving force for the next set of years, and nominations and winners started to get decided to ensure inclusion & diversity. Not a bad thing at all, in fact it is a fair parameter under consideration to promote and motivate the craft across the board. But it hurts when political correctness gets the upper hand at the cost of excellence on the craft, and the best talents and nominations for the year get snubbed, because they don’t check the boxes of diversity, nationalism, staying politically correct and relevant, and so many other factors.

Made in Heaven : First Look

Zoya Akhtar along with her long time friend and associate Reema Kagti is coming up with their first Web Series on Amazon Prime Video. Made in Heaven is supposedly a story about the wedding planners of Delhi. Will it be a fusion where Dil Dhadakne Do meets Band Baaja Baaraat?

The first look of the show is out, looks classy and we cannot wait. If a show has such a brilliant mind behind it, and lines up actors like Kalki Koechlin, Shashank Arora, Jim Sarbh, Sobhita Dhulipala, and Arjun Mathur, there must be a lot to look forward. The show premieres on Prime Video on March 8th this year.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association bestowed their annual Critics’ Choice Awards 2019, honoring achievement in movies and TV for 2018

ROMA, Vice, Black Panther and The Favorite won big. A Star is Born, First Man and If Beale Street Could Talk took home multiple awards as well. The critical thing to keep in mind is that the Oscar Best Picture winner has often coincided with the Critics Choice awards, and that can give ROMA some additional hope. Certainly, we are not complaining.

Find the entire winner and nominee list below:
