2016 - Awards Season - And the Oscar Goes to... La La Land Moonlight!

2016 - Awards Season: Oscars - Nominations - Final Look

February 26th, 2017

La La Land

It’s Oscar night and we will be live blogging the show. Before that, let’s take a last look at the nominations with a few annotations. Nominees in italics are those that have received the most votes from our readers so far in our Oscar contest (which is open to new entries until noon, Pacific, today—enter now!). Bold films are those films I think will win. Meanwhile, those that are Underlined are those I want to win. Not all categories have underlined nominees, because not all categories have someone I’m cheering for, or because there are two nominees I couldn’t pick between. More...

Theater Averages: Split Separates Itself from the Pack with $13,170

January 25th, 2017

Split

The overall number one film, Split, was also the only film in the $10,000 club, earning an average of $13,170. The closest competition was Tanpopo, which earned $7,677 in one theater during its 13th week of re-release. More...

2016 Awards Season: Oscar Nominations

January 24th, 2017

La La Land

The Oscar nominations were announced starting at 5:18 am Pacific time. Nothing is good that early in the morning. Worse still, it’s a boring year for nominations with very few surprises worth talking about, especially in the biggest categories. Leading the way was La La Land with 14 nominations, tying the record. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Turn On and Tune In some Limited Releases

January 20th, 2017

The Red Turtle

There are a dozen limited releases we have release dates for, not all of which are big enough to be featured here. This is is a good number of releases for one week. Sadly, too many films just results in good films falling between the cracks due to the competition. Unfortunately, while there are a number of great films on this week’s list, like The Red Turtle, I don’t think any will thrive in theaters. More...
