‘Titanic,’ ‘The Goonies,’ ‘Field of Dreams,’ ‘Memento’ Added to National Film Registry
James Cameron’s disaster epic “Titanic,” the beloved fantasy “The Goonies,” Christopher Nolan’s “Memento” and 1989’s “Field of Dreams” are among the 25 films selected for inclusion in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry.

The 2017 selections range from obscure documentaries to a Mexican-American family’s home movies from 1920s Texas to Disney’s 1941 animated classic “Dumbo” to the 1979 Luis Valdez-directed drama “Boulevard Nights” to 1960’s “Spartacus,” the Kirk Douglas-Stanley Kubrick sword-and-sandal drama that helped end the era of the blacklist.

The titles will be added to the Library’s collection of films designated as having cultural, social or aesthetic significance.

“Our love affair with motion pictures is a testament to their enduring power to enlighten, inspire and inform us as individuals and a nation as a whole,” said Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress. “Being tasked with selecting only 25 each year is daunting because there are so many great films deserving of this honor

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

An Exhaustive Guide to the Complex Web of Characters in Netflix's Dark

Netflix's Dark, an intriguing sci-fi series that's been labeled with an unfair comparison to Stranger Things, weaves a complex, time-traveling mystery throughout its 10-episode first season. The show opens in 2019 and introduces a large group of characters, only to begin a series of flashbacks to two other time periods: 1953 and 1986. That means that while you're trying to solve the mystery of where when Mikkel Nielsen disappeared to, the pool of characters is only widening and getting more confusing. If you have trouble keeping track of the 1953, 1986, and 2019 iterations of each major player, you're definitely not alone. To make things easier for you (and for ourselves, let's be honest), we went ahead and made a handy guide to who (and when) everyone is, for the characters who exist in multiple time periods. But be warned, this gallery gets more spoiler-y the further you scroll.

75th Golden Globe Nominations – In An Industry Of Snubs It’s Hard To Stand Out

Award season is a world of snub, complaints, and second-guessing, but the recent announcement of The Golden Globe nominations already has people talking, and tweeting. Among the most noteworthy misses, in a year when the nominations are mostly academic, is The Big Sick and Wonder Woman, both of which got no attention at all from The Golden Globe Awards.

Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.

Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.

The young mutants find a hidden place at the hospital where they’re being held. There they found a ‘lie detector’ and they think it will be fun to use it to get to know each other better.

This "Bad Lip Reading" of Stranger Things Is as Strange (and Hysterical) as It Gets

If you need something to curb your Stranger Things addiction until season three, the folks at Bad Lip Reading have you covered. The popular YouTube channel just released its own rendition of the Netflix series, and it's not-so-surprisingly hysterical. In the 18-minute video, the character's voices are dubbed over to speak gibberish according to a totally revamped plot line that features Will and his friends rehearsing for a talent show and Chief Hopper and Joyce Beyers arguing over musical preferences. The wildly random compilation really just speaks for itself, so watch it above and get ready for your daily dose of chuckles.

“Stranger Things 3” Not Expected Until 2019

Stranger Things 2 was a huge success by both critical and commercial standards, so it should come as no surprise to learn that Stranger Things 3 will be released at some point in the not so distant future. However, interested individuals should not expect to see the next season too soon, seeing as how the Duffer brothers need time to plan out the future as well as turn their planned course of events into filmable scripts. Since this process is neither simple nor straightforward, this means that it will take some time before Stranger Things 3 can even start filming.

’13 Reasons Why’ Snags a Surprise Golden Globes Nomination Amidst Controversy for Its Treatment of Suicide

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the first season of “13 Reasons Why.”]

The teen drama “13 Reasons Why” sparked plenty of controversy when Netflix released it in March, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association saw fit to give it a nod on Monday. It’s a show that’s all but been forgotten and didn’t really show up on many critical prediction lists. Although the series overall didn’t get recognition, its star Katherine Langford snagged the nomination in the Best Actress in a Drama Series category.

“Words cannot express my sheer excitement and gratitude for being nominated by the HFPA this morning for portraying ‘Hannah Baker,’ a young woman whom I have come to truly love and understand,” Langford said in a statement. “Hannah’s story resonated with so many people, and I feel truly grateful to Netflix, Paramount TV, Brian Yorkey, Tom McCarthy, Selena Gomez, and all of our tremendous producers…and to our incredibly talented cast – who are also my dear friends,

Paul Schrader’s Secret New Movie: How the Director Resurrected a Wild Nicolas Cage Performance Without Permission

Paul Schrader’s Secret New Movie: How the Director Resurrected a Wild Nicolas Cage Performance Without Permission
In September 2014, veteran filmmaker Paul Schrader was livid. He had recently directed “Dying of the Light,” a grim thriller starring Nicolas Cage as CIA agent Evan Lake, who obsesses over tracking terrorists while suffering from a brain disease and losing his mind. The movie’s financiers wanted a more conventional espionage thriller than Schrader’s experimental, subjective narrative, so they took the movie away from Schrader, who sent an email explaining the conundrum to Cage. The actor struck a note or resignation.

“The unfortunate aspect to my having had so many careers in so many genres is that they can make a case to put me in box b instead of box a for money’s sake,” Cage wrote, in an email shared with IndieWire years later.

Schrader could relate. “Dying of the Light” arrived nearly 40 years after Schrader catapulted to fame with his screenplay for “Taxi Driver” and maintained

What About Veep? TV's Biggest Golden Globes Snubs and Surprises
Somewhere in D.C., ex-President Selina Meyer is dropping f-bombs.

For the first year since its premiere, Veep got entirely shut out of Golden Globe nominations during Monday’s announcement of the 2018 honorees. It was a shocking snub considering star Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home her sixth consecutive Emmy for the role in September, and as her character’s political career plummets, the scripts soar. In fact, the HBO comedy has never won a Globe.

Here are more snubs and surprises from the list.

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through
Every awards group has their trademark quirks, and the HFPA loves nothing more than anointing the wunderkinds. And this year didn’t disappoint: On the TV side, voters embraced Showtime’s “Smilf” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”; in film, breakouts included Margot Robbie, Daniel Kaluuya, and Timothée Chalamet.

Several others across film and TV were also rewarded for their work with their first-ever Golden Globes nominations.

Movies:

Out of both actress categories, there was one sole new nominee: Margot Robbie landed her first nod in the musical or comedy field for her heralded turn as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.” She’s up against previous winners Judi Dench (“Victoria & Abdul”), Helen Mirren (“The Leisure Seeker”) and Emma Stone (“Battle of the Sexes”) and previous nominee Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird.”) The actress in a drama category is all previous Globe winners: Jessica Chastain (“Molly’s Game”), Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”), [link
