Green Book And Bohemian Rhapsody Take Home Top Movie Awards At 2019 Golden Globes

Green Book was certainly the story of TIFF 2018, taking home the People’s Choice Award, but it was very unclear how the film would perform at Awards shows. If the Golden Globes are any indication, the film is in for quite a run. The Peter Farrelly film took home three awards, including Best Musical/Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Mahershala Ali, and it now it looks like it might just be one of the favourites heading into the Oscars.

One of the biggest surprises of the evening was the lack of awards for A Star Is Born. The film was one of the favorites going in, with five nominations, and only came out with one win for Best Original Song. Lady Gaga lost out on the Best Actress Award to The Wife star Glenn Close, the film lost Best Drama to Bohemian Rhapsody, and Bradley Cooper lost twice, once to Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek for Best Actor, and once to Roma Director Alfonso Cuarón. 

And the oddest speech of the night has to go to Christian Bale, who thanked Satan for inspiring his role as Dick Chaney in the film Vice. Don’t ask, you just have to see it to believe it.

On the Television side of things, the Netflix series The Kominsky Method, and the FX miniseries The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story each had two wins to lead the way. The Americans won Best Drama, but failed to win any acting awards. The biggest surprise when it comes to acting, was Patricia Arquette taking home the Best Actress award for Escape at Dannemora. She was in a category filled with heavyweights, including Amy Adams and Regina King, but shocked everyone by winning.

The complete list of winners can be found on IMDB.

Schitt’s Creek To End After Season 6

One of CBC’s biggest hits in recent years is Schitt’s Creek, and now it’s been announced that it will be coming to an end. Father-and-son co-creators Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy have released a statement today stating the series will be ending after season 6 airs next year.

In the letter appearing on Daniel Levy’s social media accounts, the Levy’s stated they had made the decision to end the show after season six. They went on to say “We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning. It’s not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to get to decide when your show should take its final bow.” 

The Levy’s also took time to thank their fans, and that they are looking forward to shooting the final episodes.  The 14 final episodes are due to begin airing in January 2020 on CBC in Canada and Pop TV in the U.S.

Schitt’s Creek stars both of the Levy’s, along with Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy. They play a family who lost all their money, and are forced to relocate to a small town they’d bought as a joke years before. The show has won several Canadian Screen Awards, and was even up for a Critics’ Choice award last January. There is a sold-out live tour as well, which has been highly successful.

Watch The Teaser Trailer For Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

After spending his last two films in the wild west, Quentin Tarantino has moved forward to the 1960s for his latest film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.  The film has been many years in the making, and finally a trailer has arrived. 

Tarantino’s ninth film has an all-star cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. It tells the story of a former TV Western star and his stunt double, who try to give their careers a rebirth in the late 1960’s, but discover that Hollywood has changed. While the main story is fiction, there are some real-life characters in the film, including Charles Manson, Sharon Tate and Steve McQueen, who interact with the story.  

Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Bruce Dern, Emile Hirsch, Timothy Olyphant and Kurt Russell also star in the film. 

Tarantino wrote, directed and produced the film, and is planning on debuting it at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood gets its wide release on July 26.

Two New Characters Exiting Star Trek: Discovery At The End Of Season 2

Star Trek: Discovery has turned into quite the hit for CBS All Access, and for the second season several new additions were made to the cast. Among those added were Anson Mount and Rebecca Romijn, who played classic Trek characters Captain Christopher Pike of the USS Enterprise and the member of his crew Number One. While it wasn’t known going in what the plans were for the characters for later seasons, it’s now been let out that neither will be moving beyond season two. 

Deadline is reporting that their sources told them that both Mount and Romijn has one year deals, and were only signed to be part of the season 2 story arc. The plans were to sync up Discovery with the original Star Trek by the end of the season. Of course if plans are to keep with the original Trek cannon, that means Mount’s character Pike may be heading towards a tragic ending. In the original series Pike was only captain of the Enterprise for the pilot episode, and eventually ends up paralyzed, disfigured and mute. In the recent movies Pike was killed in the second film by Kahn, although that film series takes place in a different universe and doesn’t match up to any of the previous films or TV shows that came before it. This could also mean that Captain Kirk may make an appearance in season 3. 

Mount’s time on the show hasn’t been the easiest, considering he was involved in a physical altercation with one of the directors in August of last year during the filming of an episode. At the time the incident was reviewed by CBS HR and they determined that the incident was just an accident as the actor was preparing for an upcoming scene and made contact with the director before cameras started rolling.
