‘Everyone’s a winner!’ – Award ceremonies to become more inclusive | NewsBiscuit

‘Everyone’s a winner!’ – Award ceremonies to become more inclusive | NewsBiscuit | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
In attempt to combat accusations of cultural, ethnic or skill bias; the Oscars are planning to award prizes to ‘every person with a selfie-stick’. The short-list for Best Actor 2016 has now extended to include 1.4bn people of dubious talent, although a disproportionate number of the nominees are now teenage girls called ‘Harper’. While there is a legitimate argument that employment data should mirror demographics, it is odd to suggest that ‘success’ should be equally as fair; which could lead to midgets winning basketball tournaments.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

For my part, I don't think a lot of movies are worth giving awards, but I wish instead of recognizing "The Best" the academy recognized the "good" giving awards to all those that are truly deserving. In my opinion, some years we should have more than one winner and in other years zilch. As for race, well there are some great Black actors and film makers who should be recognized; but more importantly we need to have more opportunities for Black artists to make films.

10 Myths You Probably Believe Because of Movies & TV Shows (crime, science, biology, myths, movies, tv shows) - ODDEE | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
We all know that writers and directors like to take creative license when telling a story, but there are some things you've seen so many times that you probably believe them to be true even though they're anything but. (crime, science, biology, myths, movies, tv shows)
Kenneth Weene's insight:

This is a great piece to read if you like crime fiction, like to watch crime movies, or are a writer of crime stories. For my part, since I want everyone to read "Memoirs From the Asylum," I have to mention that pleading insanity is not only usually unsuccessful, but those who do so successfully end up in that nuthouse I describe or one even worse.

9 times Daniel Radcliffe was the greatest human in Hollywood.

Daniel Radcliffe is the best. Period.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I think the guy deserves a lot of praise; it ain't easy being green and he manages to overcome that obstacle or is it having been a child star and growing up a decent human being that's so difficult? Whichever, he deserves the great press.
