New Oscar Rules In Place to Prevent Repeat of ‘La La Land’/’Moonlight’ Mix-Up

Oscar Rules

It’s officially Oscar season! To prepare for Hollywood’s big, self-congratulatory night, PricewaterhouseCoopers, the consulting service that handles the envelopes containing the names of the official Academy Award Winners, have implemented a new set of rules to help avoid a repeat of last year’s embarrassing Moonlight/La La Land mix-up.

Last year’s Academy Awards were memorable not so much for the films that won, but rather for the unprecedented goof that occurred at the end of the evening. In case you’ve forgotten, since it seems like it happened approximately ten thousand years ago, Bonnie and Clyde stars Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to announce the winner of Best Picture. But someone backstage handed Beatty and Dunaway the wrong envelope. Rather than the envelope containing the real Best Picture winner, what Beatty and Dunaway had was an envelope announcing Emma Stone as Best Actress of La La Land. After the envelope was opened, Beatty and Dunaway floundered, realizing something was amiss. Dunaway caught sight of La La Land on the card within the envelope, and promptly announced the Damien Chazelle musical as the winner. But there was a problem: La La Land was not the Best Picture winner – Moonlight was. By the time the mistake had been realized, the cast and filmmakers behind La La Land had already taken the stage. The rest is Oscar history. Here, watch a video of the moment and try not to cringe!

In a new AP storyTim Ryan, U.S. chairman and senior partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), discusses the infamous mix-up, and reveals new rules that have been put in place to prevent it from every happening again. “One of the most disappointing things to me was all the great work that had been done, not only last year but over the last 83 years, around accuracy, confidentiality integrity of that process,” Ryan says in the AP story. “And where we got it wrong was on the handing over of the envelope.”

The piece then goes on to lay out the new rules that will ensure such a goof never happens again, including:

— The addition of a third balloting partner, who will sit with Oscar producers in the show’s control room. Just like the balloting partners stationed on either side of the Dolby Theatre stage, this person will have a complete set of winners’ envelopes and commit the winners to memory. “Think of it as a safety control,” Ryan said.

— The two partners who worked on last year’s Academy Awards have been replaced, though Ryan confirms that both still work for PwC. The new stage-side partners overseeing the envelopes will include Rick Rosas, who previously worked in that post for 14 years, and colleague Kimberly Bourdon from the company’s Los Angeles office.

— A new formal procedure is in place for when envelopes are handed over. Both the celebrity presenter and a stage manager will confirm that they’ve been given the correct envelope for the category they are about to present. (Last year’s gaffe occurred when the PwC representative accidentally gave presenters the envelope for best actress rather than best picture.)

— All three balloting partners will attend show rehearsals and practice what to do if something goes wrong. “Because, as you’re well aware, it took a long time to respond last year when there was a mistake that we made,” Ryan said. “So we’re formally practicing the what-ifs.”

– The final change is one the academy immediately instituted last year: PwC partners are prohibited from using cellphones or social media during the show.

So there you have it. Don’t expect a repeat of the Moonlight/La La Land fiasco this year. That doesn’t mean an entirely new set of mistakes won’t happen, of course. The Academy Awards will air March 4, 2018.

John Cena Might Might Star In A Duke Nukem Movie

Photo: Willy Sanjuan | AP

According to a story on The Hollywood Reporter, John Cena is in talks to star as Duke Nukem in a “a star vehicle” film for the former wrestler.

There is no director or writer attached to the project at the moment; at the moment it’s all on paper as a means to get Cena on the big screen in an action role.

Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes will be making the movie.

In case you need reminding, Duke Nukem—once a popular video game star with a critically and commercially successful series under his belt—has been a bit of a laughing stock since the disastrous release in 2011 of Duke Nukem Forever.

[Sundance 2018] Bisbee ’17 Review: Drags Its Feet to a Satisfying Ending

Bisbee ’17

6.5 Reviewer

Bisbee ’17 doesn’t entirely work because of pacing issues, but watching a small town come to terms with its own dark past is fascinating.

Director: Robert Greene
Summary: It’s 2017 in Bisbee, Arizona, an old copper-mining town just miles from the Mexican border. The town’s close-knit community prepares to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Bisbee’s darkest hour: the infamous Bisbee Deportation of 1917, during which 1,200 striking miners were violently taken from their homes, banished to the middle of the desert, and left to die.

There are times when a group of people must collectively confront something from their past that makes everyone feel uncomfortable. The United States as a whole needed to do that with the internment camps during World War I and the fact that we turned away Jewish refugees in the the early days of World War II. Sometimes the things are a little smaller — but no less dark — as the town of Bisbee, Arizona must face.

Bisbee ’17 follows the town as they get ready for the 100 year anniversary of the deportation. The townspeople begin to come to terms with the fact that the reason they don’t talk about this is because the people who could tell the story wanted to forget it. We also see them realize that while there may not have been a right way to handle the situation, there was a very wrong way.

It all comes to a head at the end of the documentary as they stage a reenactment of the deportation. It’s a tense moment for everyone involved, but it takes a long time to get there. The documentary is separated into six chapters that feels like it belongs more on a platform like YouTube than a theater. The entire production feels like it drags on and on, and it might have been improved with a break in between or the ability to watch it at your own pace. As it is, the ending works, but it’s a struggle to get there no matter how interesting you find the story.

Bisbee ’17 is a compelling story told in a format that doesn’t quite work. While the ending is killer and it’s interesting to see a small town essentially, as they say, have a giant group therapy session, the slog to get there is only barely worth it.

Street Fighter Favorite Akuma Coming from Storm Collectibles

Street Fighter favorite Akuma is the latest character from Street Fighter 5 to be coming from Storm Collectibles. He will be shipping in March for the price of $70. Three interchangeable heads along with many sets of hands will be included, along with gohadoken effect. There will also be a stand included.

AKUMA (named as GOUKI in Japan), has a new transformation with longer hairstyle and his traditional dark blue Gi, in Street Fighter V, Akuma possesses quicker footwork and more devastating combos. The 神人 “shin” kanji is seen on his back of the Gi when performing the Shun Goku Satsu.

The figure set includes:
3 x Interchangeable Head Sculpts
8 x Interchangeable Palm
1 x Gohadoken Effect
2 x V-Trigger Effect – Dohatsu Shoten
1 x Stand with Street Fighter V Logo

Bonus item: Additional Gi with 神人 “Shin” kanji at the back

Available for pre-order now!

These figures are pretty awesome. They always knock the sculpt out of the park, and this one looks to be no different. The articulation is always top notch as well. While I do not own any of their Street Fighter offerings (yet), I have held them in my hands and they are as good as advertised. I do own their Hollywood Hogan Ringsdie Collectibles exclusive and am extremely happy with it. Akuma is one of my go-to plays in the series, so this will probably be the one that finally gets me to purchase one of these.

Street Fighter Akuma is up for preorder now. You can order one of these for yourself and see more info here.

John Cena In Talks To Play Duke Nukem In New Movie

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

The wrestler and movie star John Cena is in talks to play Duke Nukem in an upcoming movie based on the brash video game character. This is according to The Hollywood Reporter, which has word that the film is coming from Paramount and Michael Bay’s production studio Platinum Dunes.

The report states that the Duke Nukem film is in the early stages of production. No director or other cast members have been announced, while a search is reportedly currently underway to find a writer. It’s also unclear what other actors might be in the running to play Duke Nukem. Cena and Nukem do share a resemblance…

Cena and Paramount already worked together on the movie Daddy’s Home 2. He’s also set to show up in the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. Cena’s other movie credits include an appearance in Trainwreck, while more recently he was the voice of Ferdinand in the animated movie of the same name.

The Duke Nukem video game series has been dormant since 2011’s critically panned but million-selling Duke Nukem Forever. Gearbox Software, which owns the rights to the Duke Nukem series, confirmed in 2015 that it had done some concept work on a all new, “head-turning” Duke Nukem game. However, Gearbox might not make the new game.

“I think the faster way is that a correct developer can become interested and we can work with them,” Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said at the time. “I think it’s a challenging problem. But, I’ll tell you one thing. When it does happen, there’s no doubt that the whole industry will turn its head and look.”

Could ‘Henry Danger’ Live-Action Series Be Ending? Jace Norman Leaves Cryptic Message On Instagram

Jace Norman is hanging up his Kid Danger mask…at least for now. The cast and crew wrapped up shooting the fourth season of Nickelodeon’s hit superhero-themed comedy series Henry Danger last month, and in recent interviews, Jace has said that he hopes that there will be a season five, however, the 17-year-old Nickelodeon star has left fans worrying about whether there will be a fifth season of their favorite Nick show after posting a cryptic message on Instagram.

“Great memories. Thank you,” Jace captioned his latest Instagram post, accompanied with a selection of behind-the-scenes photos feature Jace and his Henry Danger co-star Cooper Barnes:

Great memories. Thank you.

A post shared by Jace Norman (@jacenorman) on

//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js
Although it doesn’t confirm the fate of Nick’s top-rated sitcom, it’s been enough to cause concern about the shows future among fans.

Whilst we don’t know the future holds for Henry Danger, fans can still get to hear Jace, Cooper and the rest of the shows cast on The Adventures of Kid Danger, Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated Henry Danger spin-off, which airs Fridays at 6:30pm ET/PT on Nick USA, and Jace recently mentioned that Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger theatrical movie is still in the works! Fans can also catch more brand-new episodes of Henry Danger very soon on Nickelodeon USA! Jace also recently set up his own company, Creator Edge Media, which connects social media stars with the brands that want to work with them.

What do you think Jace’s message means? Do you hope Henry Danger will be renewed for a fifth season? Let NickALive! know in the comments!
