The show is not over. When the Oscars ended on Sunday night with the biggest flub in recent memory, thanks to Warren Beatty mistakenly reading La La Land out as the winner of best picture, when, in fact, the prize went to Moonlight, the night ended with an uproar — and more questions than answers. That´s why just after midnight PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that tallies the Oscars, released an apologetic statement. "We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture," the statement read.
Former President George W. Bush believes President Trump is off track by fighting the media and speaking out against Islam in speeches and in his executive immigration order. Bush didn´t directly criticize Trump in an NBC interview on Monday, but he used his own time in office to contrast with what how the current president is using the presidency. When asked about Trump´s spats with the media, Bush said he never considered the press the "enemy of the American people," as Trump said last week. "I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy," Bush said. "We need an independent
I do not write these words lightly, and there is not an ounce of mockery or, God forbid, hatred in my heart when I say that Caitlyn Jenner is a man wearing a dress. I am simply speaking the plain and obvious truth, as politically incorrect as that truth might be right now. But with transgender issues dominating the news these days, and in light of Tucker Carlson’s epic takedown of Democratic leader Zac Petkanas on national TV last week (specifically, discussing gender-related questions), it appears that now is as good a time as ever to state some things clearly. So
Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin announced plans to bring an undocumented medical student as a guest to President Trump´s first address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night. Durbin is one of the most vocal defenders of Barack Obama´s executive action giving legal status to millions of children of illegal immigrants who have lived in the United States for years. He said he is honored to bring Aaima Sayed, a third-year medical student at Loyola University Chicago, to Trump´s speech to Congress. The Illinois Democrat has been pressing Trump to exclude these children, known as Dreamers, from any efforts
Oscar night is on us and perennial nominee Meryl Streep is back in the news again, whining. It wasn´t enough that she sang for her supper with a long-winded, cliche-filled diatribe against Donald Trump at the Golden Globes earlier this month, repeating every leftist canard, hitting every touchstone. Now she´s gotten into a fight over evening gowns with leading Parisian designer Karl Lagerfeld, who is well-known for having a politically conservative streak. It´s a he-said, she-said controversy. Last week, Lagerfeld accused Streep of being ´cheap´ for refusing to wear one of his gowns at the Oscars, on the grounds that she
Fast-food chain Wendy´s is planning to install self-order kiosks at about 1,000 locations across the country by the end of 2017 to cut labor costs, The Columbus Dispatch reported. (Snip) The report did not indicate the locations getting the kiosks. Wendy´s said it already offered kiosks to its restaurants last year and that both customers and franchisees have demanded more of the service. According to the report, the company said the kiosks would help reduce labor costs and give younger customers the experience they prefer. The kiosks cost about $15,000 each. Earlier this month, Wendy´s said it opened 150 new restaurants
Do you remember where you were when “Brokeback Mountain” lost in the best picture category? It was in 2006, my first year in college, and I was at a crowded Oscar party. When Jack Nicholson read the contents of the envelope, he delivered the news that “Crash” had won with an implied shrug as if to say, “That’s Hollywood, Jake.” Everyone in the room with me was stunned, almost unable to move. “Brokeback” had been the unbeatable front-runner, a cultural phenomenon that was also critically beloved. It had completed a near sweep during the awards season, winning honors from the British Academy of Film
