Spotlight on the Stars: Keira Knightley

For this week’s new spotlight piece, I wanted to cite an A-lister who doesn’t quite get the credit that she deserves. That lovely lady is none other than Keira Knightley, an Academy Award nominated actress mostly known for her period piece work but capable of far more than that. In[...]

David Oyelowo and “Selma” launch to the top of the Oscar race

Re-ranking the contenders in Best Animated Feature

Today, for the next installment of my weekly 2015 contender re-rundown, I’m moving on from the big eight categories obviously and now taking a look at one of the in between ones, which happens to be the Best Animated Feature race. Since there are a whole lot less contenders in this[...]
