    Kevin Hart named host of the Oscars - and bows out a few days later after old tweets resurface.

    Golden Globe Nominations: Complete List

    Is it just me or are the movies this year somewhat lacking? I like a lot of the nominated films, just not sure any of them qualify as great.

    Weirdly inexcusable the Academy didn't run a simple social media check on its MC candidates in these hypersensitive times.

    Also, the host doesn't need to be a comic.

    A Star is Born is going to win everything.

    In the wokeness era, I really wanted the very white art prestige movie not to dominate, but it is a damn good movie.

    I found this year’s assortment very enjoyable. I’m satisfied with the crop, certainly there have been much worse.

    I saw Bohemian Rhapsody and it was very good. I'm glad Black Panther didn't get a best pic nod. It was run of the mill as a story.

    It did get a best drama nod.

    The Hate U Give should have received some nominations. It's better than BlacKKKlansman. Probably better than Bohemian Rhapsody (which I haven't seen).

    It was a very good comic book movie. As was Avengers, Civil War, the 1st Iron Man, Wonder Woman and the Captain America movies. The Dark Knight was a very good movie, without regard to genre. I know why the Black Panther gets the acclaim it gets, but it should be just because it was a very good movie, not to patronize African Americans

    Vox Lux looks very interesting.

    I assumed the Oscars had named someone to replace Hart by now - surprised there is still no host two months before the show.

    Golden Globe opening is cringeworthy, in a bad way

    Just make Carol Burnett the host. Her speech tonight had me sobbing on my couch.

    Also surprised of the love for Green Book tonight, considering that Don Shirley's family is...not fans.
