Oscars 2021: How to watch, which celebs will be there, who's up for what - everything you need to know about the Academy Awards
It's Hollywood's biggest night of the year, and while pandemic restrictions have seen some celebs showing up on their laptops for other ceremonies in slightly more casual attire than they perhaps would in person (yes, we're looking at you, Jason Sudeikis), rest assured the Oscars is pulling out all the stops to bring back a bit of glamour.
Which means we'll get a star-studded red carpet (because clearly, the fashion is one of the best bits), even if it does look a little less crowded than previous years. So that's a positive. The downside? We don't get to check out the celebs' kitchens, and fewer pets on show.

Oscar nominee Andra Day says Billie Holiday role made her 'braver'
American singer Andra Day says portraying legendary blues performer Billie Holiday has made her braver. The 36-year-old has been nominated for a best actress Oscar for her debut role in "The United States vs. Billie Holiday," which looks at the jazz singer's part in the push for Black civil rights and the outcry caused by her singing the ballad "Strange Fruit."
Oscar-nominated 'Do Not Split' now part of Hong Kong's story of waning freedoms - director
The decision in Hong Kong not to air this year's Oscars has only brought more global attention to its struggle for democracy, said the director of the "Do Not Split" documentary about the city's 2019 protests, which has been short-listed for an award. Free-to-air broadcaster TVB, which has broadcast the Oscars every year since 1969, said it would not carry the ceremony this year for commercial reasons.

Netflix drama Mank leads the pack in this year’s Academy Award nominations, with 10 nods – showing that the Oscars are still a navel-gazing affair – but it has fierce competition in all of its categories, including Best Film. Since cinemas aren’t due to reopen in the UK until May 17, where and how can you see all these great movies?

Why Is It So Hard to Show Black Women’s Musical Genius Onscreen?
Oscar-nominated performances this season put the emphasis on the trauma, not the artistry, of Billie Holiday and Ma Rainey. The most insightful movie might just be “Soul.”

Oscar history has been made, again. For just the second time, two Black women — Viola Davis (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”) and Andra Day (“The United States vs. Billie Holiday”) — are nominated for best actress in the same year. This last happened in 1973 when Cicely Tyson (“Sounder”) and Diana Ross (“Lady Sings the Blues”) were up for the Academy Award, only to lose out to Liza Minnelli for her starring role in “Cabaret.” While we do not know who will take home the gold statue on Sunday, it is undeniable that Davis and Day gave two of the most mesmerizing performances of the year.

The 'United States vs. Billie Holiday' best actress nominee and the 'Bad Feminist' author and cultural critic engage in a deep, intense discussion that included the Derek Chauvin trial and why faith precludes competitiveness: "It just thrashes this idea that you and I are in competition, especially when it comes to Black women."

Oscar Predictions: Can anything beat 'Nomadland'?

Card image cap

Nominees: “The Father,” “Judas and the Black Messiah,” “Mank,” “Minari,” “Nomadland,” “Promising Young Woman,” “Sound of Metal,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7.”
COYLE: A contemplative character study made for $5 million and populated by non-professional actors, Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland” is not your typical Oscar heavyweight. And yet it’s overwhelming the favorite, a roundly acclaimed movie from an exciting auteur that has already ruled at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and, most crucially, the producers and directors’ guilds. The weirdness of this unending pandemic awards season adds a drop of uncertainty to everything. But as much as I’d like to see “Sound of Metal,” “Promising Young Woman” or “Minari” sneak in for an upset, “Nomadland” is a near-lock, and an eminently worthy winner.

Ex-Hollywood Foreign Press president called BLM a 'racist hate movement'

By Olafimihan Oshin - 04/20/21 11:28 AM EDT
The former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association sent an email calling Black Lives Matter a racist movement, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday.
The former president of the association that hands out the Golden Globes awards, Phil Berk, also described Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, as a “self-proclaimed ‘trained Marxist” in the email, which the Times reported was sent to the press association's members, staff and its general counsel and chief operating officer, Gregory Goeckner. 
Berk, who had served eight terms as president of the organization, also shared an article titled “BLM Goes Hollywood'' in the email. Berk did not cite the source for the story, but it came from conservative commentator David Horowitz’s Freedom Center website, FrontPage Mag, according to the Times.

Has a Best Picture race ever felt like
such a done deal? Even in years where there's been an obvious frontrunner, there was still some room for surprise come Oscars night. That doesn't seem to be the case this year, where
Nomadland is so primed to win that if any other film were read off, we would say, "
Why do they keep letting Warren Beatty present Best Picture?!"
Chloé Zhao's resilient road movie became the first film to ever win both Venice's Golden Lion Award and the Toronto International Film Festival's People's Choice Award, the latter heralding it as one to watch come awards season. Then

Heartfelt Love Songs Prevail on Weekend Playlist

Although Valentine’s Day was more than two months ago, songs inspired by the highs and lows of love dominated this weekend’s new music lineup.
Singer-songwriter Julia Michaels puts it plainly on “Love is Weird,” a post-breakup ballad that delicately captures the complexities of love. The newest single from her newly announced debut album, “Not in Chronological Order,” set to drop April 30, explores the aftermath of lost love. Captured best in the lines “It shows up and disappears / Love is strange for some / It ranges from making love to tears,” the song’s moody lyrics pair well with its orchestral backing.
