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...

, and Trailer Takes: Frozen II, Long Shot,and Yesterday

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...

For the first time in almost two decades, when Augusta National opens its gates to the top golfers in the world, the best golfer in the world will be absent.

The USA met Mexico in Glendale, Arizona on Wednesday night, for a World Cup tune-up which, despite its billing, was anything but friendly.

For Tokyo Police Club, the release of their third studio album, Forcefield, seems to mark their arrival as a truly established indie rock band. Though, by “truly established,” I mean, mainly, that people have finally stopped mistaking their band for a bunch of Japanese cops. Nevertheless, it’s the kind of place you reach artistically where…

Did the Yankees just lose? We don’t have the highest payroll? As the era of the Core-Four comes to a close, the Yankees appear to be sinking into mediocrity. This is a shocking sight for those of us born in the ‘90s who enjoyed five World Series championships and a run of constant relevancy. Had…

Modern technology aids and amplifies our relationship to music. We can store, categorize, purchase, and exchange music. We can digitize our instruments and synthesize our voices. This new musical world provides us with a level of involvement and participation unseen before our time. And when I thought that I had seen it all—from YouTube mashups…

At the National Gallery, Jean Renoir and Vincent Van Gogh offer free round-trip tickets to Paris and Auvers.

Who ever thought Ultimate Frisbee would enter the big leagues? A few years ago, it was questioned whether it should even be considered a sport. Now you can catch your college competing in the Ultimate Frisbee Championship on ESPN. The sport combines elements of soccer and football, resulting in a showcase of pure athleticism and…

Years and years of flamingos, there were no other things. And then, suddenly, all at once, for no discernible reason, during mid-afternoon (of all time for God’s sake), they stayed exactly as they had been.   Occasional head-wetting, toe shuffling, rufflings that could at their most intense be mis- construed as minor convulsions.   Photo: Pam…

Writer Paul Levitz’ and artist Diogenes Neves’s World’s Finest: Huntress and Power Girl Annual #1 is a weird comic. Not only is the basic premise hard for even the most knowledgeable of comic fans to swallow, but Levitz’s writing and characterization for characters like Supergirl and Wonder Woman are head-scratching.  Even the comic’s status as…
