Monday Morning Wrap Up

Welcome to the inaugural Monday morning recap!  This column is for you to read before work or class or during!  We had a busy weekend within the industry so let’s get to it.

  • Get Out, the movie written and directed by Jordan Peele, came out with a stunning rating on rotten tomatoes and $30.5 million gross this weekend.  I wrote a short review on Saturday about this.  It was good and gets better the more you think about it
  • Bill Paxton died on Sunday from complications from surgery.  If you haven’t seen a Bill Paxton movie in a while, go watch one and celebrate his life.  He was a true talent and will be missed
  • Chance the Rapper officially wins coolest man ever for renting out an entire theater all day so anyone can go see Get Out for free
  • Martin Scorsese’s new film that he has been working on for decades will be distributed in 2019 through Netflix.  It will star Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino
  • The Oscars happened last night and the winners go as followed:
  1. Supporting Actor – Maharsela Ali
  2. Supporting Actress – Viola Davis
  3. Best Actor – Casey Affleck
  4. Best Actress – Emma Stone
  5. Best Director – Damien Chazelle
  6. Best Picture – MOONLIGHT
  • Some random Oscar notes:
  1. Warren Beatty made a mistake and gave the Oscar for Best Picture to La La Land when it was supposed to be Moonlight.  Absolute madness
  2. That’s why all presenters need to be under 50 and have perfect vision because those poor people from La La Land’s hearts are broken
  3. Is this all an elaborate prank by Jimmy Kimmel?  He has been known to dupe everyone with his viral videos and stories
  4. Nicole Kidman doesn’t know how to clap and I still can’t stand the sight of Keith Urban
  5. Viola Davis had an amazing speech 
  6. Janelle Monae is seriously gorgeous
  7. Jimmy Kimmell should host every year because he is the perfect man for a job.  Makes sense because Letterman was great too
  8. Hot Take: Guillermo is the best late night side kick (Sorry Andy Richter)
  9. So the next Ken Bone is Gary.  Get to know him and love him
  10. Seth Rogen came on stage with Michael J Fox as they stepped out of a Delorean and made everyone in the world jealous
  11. Speaking of Seth Rogen, he and Evan Goldberg directed what could be one of the best commercials ever for Walmart 
  12. They did “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” and people love that so much.  I just don’t get it
  13. Tilda Swinton is legit the scariest looking lady ever.  Very talented but sheesh, her parents can’t be proud of that one
  14. I understand the irony of making fun of Tilda Swinton in a post right below something about being mean to celebrities 
  15. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone should be together forever honestly
  16. The Jimmy Kimmel-Matt Damon feud is the best feud ever since Larry Bird and Magic JohnsoN

And that is your Monday morning wrap up and if you have anything to add, please feel free to let me know and share this with your friends!
