73rd Annual Tony Awards

The 73rd Annual Tony Awards happened last night. This is my favorite awards show because it is a celebration of the art form I grew up in and have worked in for most of my life. The Tonys offer a glimpse into one of the creative work for one of the best cities for theater. Is NYC the end all, be all? No, of course not. It is, through Broadway, the city that established itself as event viewing for a nationally broadcast awards show. Any opportunity to people have to experience theater is a great opportunity to get keep building support for this medium.

91st Academy Awards Reaction and Winners

The 91st Academy Awards happened last night. I cannot speak to the broadcast as I opted to dive into Umbrella Academy instead. Yes, a slick superhero series with some…issues in how it portrays anyone except for straight white men felt far more relaxing than a night of awards that could bring serious clout to some awful people. Based on the winners, I made the right choice for me. Still, I could not contain my disdain for the ceremony when I woke up and discovered the Best Picture winner.

Brandi Carlile and the 2019 Grammy Awards

Brandi Carlile might be one of the most naturally gifted singer/songwriters to come around in a long time. That is not to say that she is a new artist; 2018’s By the Way, I Forgive You is her sixth studio album. Her breakthrough came in 2007 with the release of The Story and she has steadily been creating new music since then.

The 76th Annual Golden Globe Nominations

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards. The ceremony, honoring film and television, will be broadcast live on 6 January at 8 pm EST. These nominees tend to be quite different from the Oscars or the Emmys as the HFPA is comprised of 90 members from 55 countries. They also split films into Musical or Comedy and Drama categories. This allows for twice as many nominees in picture and lead performances, but only single categories for supporting performances, directors, and screenplays.
