It’s an annual tradition by now. We like to do Haiku twice. Once for the Globes and once for Oscar.

Although I haven’t been making too big a deal about it, I have to say that there is a part of me that sits here unbelieving that a woman could actually win Best Director for the first time in Oscar’s 82 year history. The rules of the game have stated that only straight, white guys […]

There is always one category that stirs things up in any given year. This year, it’s Best Actress. There is more drama (at least here at AwardsDaily) in this category than even the Bigelow V.
