Awards Juggernaut ‘The Revenant’ Barrels Through BAFTAs
Awards Juggernaut ‘The Revenant’ Barrels Through BAFTAs
This year’s awards season has been a special treat due to the absence of a clear-cut frontrunner, with The Big Short, Spotlight, The Revenant, and Mad Max: Fury Road all in relatively close competition — up until very recently, at least. While early nominations were split between these four heavy-hitting movies, The Revenant has broken out in recent weeks as the various awards-giving bodies have had their ceremonies. Artistic intention be damned, the sheer technical bravado of Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s western may be enough to push it through to a big victory on Oscar night, if last night’s showing at the BAFTAs is any example.

The Grammys Never Disapoint When It Comes to Disappointing Rock and Metal Fans
I watch the Grammys almost every year. I enjoy a pretty wide range of music, but for a show that boasts to be "music's biggest night", they completely lack in showing appreciation for rock and metal music. Comedian and metalhead Brian Posehn wrote a perfect review/rant for the evening that sums up how most of us feel about the awards show.
