Short Film Friday: Cooking Dog and Hot for Teacher

Omelette Directed by: Madeline Sharafian Runtime: 2:30 http://maddiesharafian.blogspot.com/ (thanks Laura G. ) After a pretty rough week this is exactly the kind of short film I wanted to run into – charming, heartfelt, funny and, most importantly, short, which is not always the case with short films. Omelette is a personal little tale about a...

OW Oscarama — Argo-eff-yourself: Best Supporting Actor

Unlike the Best Supporting Actress category, Best Supporting Actor is slightly a lifetime achievement category this year.

Oscar voting sham confirmed (Next stop: the White House?)

Aaaaand now it’s official: We will never, ever know who really won this year’s Oscars. That’s because we’ll never know who was even nominated. This morning’s announcement has award-watchers scratching their heads over the “wildly eclectic,” even bizarrely arbitrary nature of the nods. But for the moment at least, nobody seems to be acknowledging...

Sunday Film News Roundup — February 28th, 2012

Can you hear it? That stomach gurgling sound emanating from the West Coast? Dun, dun, dun, it’s Oscar Night! Now that the Academy’s dirty little secret that it is an overwhelmingly old, white boys club (a secret so closely guarded that you only had to look at the Academy’s website that’s been up for like...
