87th Oscars.jpgTonight is the 87TH Academy Awards and it wouldn’t be the Academy Awards without some snubs and other controversies thrown in the mix. American Sniper is up for best picture, but Clint Eastwood did not get a nod for best director. Furthermore, The Lego Movie has a song that is up for best original song for Everything Is Awesome, best the film is not up for Best Animated Film. Overall, Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel received the most nominations with nine while The Imitation Game received eight. It’ll definitely be interesting to see if there are any controversial picks or actors you believe are going to win that continued to get snubbed like Leonardo DiCaprio. Below I am going to list the categories that I feel are the more important ones of the night and the only ones I will be predicting. The film that I believe will win will be highlighted in Red.

interview-hackersThe main story that I want to talk about is the fact that Sony Pictures after the recent hacking attack has decided to cancel the release of the Seth Rogen/James Franco film The Interview which was planned for a Christmas day release. Sony Pictures apparently met with all the theater owners and they came to the decision to cancel the release and here is the official statement I obtained courtesy of Screencrush:

In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers.

Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.

I for one do not agree with the decision that Sony and the theater owners made because after all we live in a free country or at least I thought we did. I f we let these guys succeed, then we might as well protest not to see a One Direction movie in the theaters because I find their awfulness to be very offensive and the company that released it is owned by Sony. While they are at it and since they seem to have so much pull in this world, why don’t they get Sony to release Spider Man back to Marvel considering they can’t seem to get that series right anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that the theaters are scared considering these guys threatened any theater that showed it with acts of terrorism and I would be scared to show it as well. But it’s only art and at the end of the day we can’t allow groups who sit behind a computer screen threaten the way we live or what we are able to see. I was looking forward to seeing this film because it looked like it was going to crush all of the comedies released in 2014 and now who knows when we’ll get to see it.

In other news, President Barrack Obama spoke with People Magazine and he revealed what his favorite film of the year was and it’s Richard Linklater’s film that took 12 years or so to make called Boyhood. The President commented saying, “Boyhood was a great movie. That, I think, was my favorite movie this year.” I hope David Fincher doesn’t get too upset because apparently Michelle Obama commented on his most recent film Gone Girl which starred Ben Affleck saying, “I’ve read others [since, but] I read ‘Gone Girl’ a couple summers ago, which is one of my favorites. The book is much better than the movie.”

In other news related to Sony Pictures, they plan to reboot Spider-Man once again. This is all news according to what the hackers have released to the public which apparently means it is going to get a complete reboot treatment with Andrew Garfield already being fired. Here is a quick recap from Screencrush.com, “A quick recap for anyone who has missed the ongoing saga behind this superhero series, things began when it was confirmed that Marvel was negotiating to use Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. It was then revealed that Sony wanted to bring Sam Raimi back into the fold. Talk of an all-new Spider-Man series was put on the table, with Marvel offering to foot a majority of the bill while Sony held onto the creative rights. Captain America: Civil War directors The Russo Brothers have offered to produce this new trilogy. But, Sony wanted Captain America: Civil War to set up their The Sinister Six spin-off. Also, the directors of The Lego Movie are developing an animated comedy, and an all-female spin-off is still being planned.”
