NAACP Image Awards Provide Relief from an Exhausting 2019 Awards Season

This awards season has been tiring. The snubs, the Oscars doing everything in their power to annoy their core audience, the never-ending persistence of Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody—it’s all a nightmare. Enter the NAACP Image Awards. Recognizing artists of color has never been the Academy’s strong suit (in its 91-year history, only one black...

A Proposal for a Best Animal Award at the Oscars

The bumpy road to the Academy Awards has been full of hosting controversies, an unpopular “popular film” award, and key categories getting moved (then unmoved) to ad breaks. But against all odds, the show will go on and Hollywood’s biggest players will convene in the Dolby Theatre to celebrate the best work in film over...

Frozen II: https://www.youtube.com/user/disneyanimation Juliana: OK, I can’t be the only one who saw Elsa (Idina Menzel) running towards the ocean and was like, “Ah, great, we’re getting a Frozen/Moana crossover.” Although there’s no Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) in sight, Elsa is back to remind me that she is one of the most badass Disney princesses, even...

Last Saturday night, I found myself sitting in the concrete husk of an arena called RFK Stadium.  I was there to watch DC United take on the New York Red Bulls. Mostly, I went because I enjoy a good game of soccer… and the ticket was free. By luck of the schedule, this meant I…

Pale-skinned, blood-sucking creatures of the night, spend their time listening to obscure music and traipsing around the ruins of Detroit. No, this isn’t a documentary about Midtown, but you can be forgiven for thinking so. These are the subjects of Jim Jarmusch’s latter-day vampire film, Only Lovers Left Alive, a film that revels so much…

Following the artist’s declining presence in the US since his initial splash on to the top charts in 2010, Talk Dirty is Jason Derulo’s shameless attempt to emulate the “Top 40” sound and get back on the map. The album, consisting largely of synthetic beats supporting weak, cookie-cutter rap and entirely too much auto tune,…

Sports, for a variety of reasons, have always meant a lot to me. As the child of first generation immigrants, watching sports represented joining American culture. My parents weren’t really interested, and so I spent most of my early years pouring over newspapers, learning as much as possible about players that I had never seen….

  In some ways, Ingrid Michaelson is like Nutella: sweet, addicting, and great in endless creative combinations. This has certainly proven to be the case in her latest release, Lights Out, in which the singer trades out her trademark indie style for a more polished, mainstream sound. Unlike so many artists, for whom stylistic transitions…

Brown twisting twigs support white and pastel pink flowers. The blooms’ sweet scent floats in the warm breeze running off the Tidal Basin while, across the water, the flowers blend into puffy clouds. With their visual and olfactory aesthetics, the trees at the Cherry Blossom festival are works of art. This idea, that nature is…

[youtube id=”s7L2PVdrb_8″ width=”600″ height=”350″] It’s Sunday at 9PM. You and your friends gather around your television—or more likely, the HBO GO screen on your laptop—and settle in for the new episode of Game of Thrones. The cellos and basses strike that familiar chord, and you are transported to Westeros, the Wall, or wherever your White…

Over the next few months, Halftime writer Joe Pollicino will re-examine some of the favorite teams, players, and moments from his halcyon days of fanhood. 30th out of 30.

Character development in the superhero genre is harder than you would think. With numerous writers and artists presenting the cape and cowl crowd over and over again, it’s hard for radical changes and development in a character to really have lasting power. Sometimes, these changes are not done for the right reason or are just…
