The 26th annual MTV Movie Awards was not its usual event this weekend as it was the first time it combined movie and television categories and removed gendered categories. Beauty and the Beast was the big winner of the night, taking home multiple statues and being the inspiration for the event’s opening number.

MTV is giving their annual entertainment award show two big changes this year. Plus, Jordan Peele’s hit horror film Get Out leads the nominations with six nods.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the nominees for the 89th Academy Awards. Lionsgate’s musical “La La Land” led the pack with a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations, including two for Best Song.
In just one weekend, the race for Best Picture picked up steam and became a certifiable three-way race as Barry Jenkins’ moving three-act drama Moonlight took home the top prize from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. This win follows both Manchester by the Sea and La La Land winning Best Film from the National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics Circle, respectively.
Manchester by the Sea is leading the Gotham Independent Film Awards as the nominees were announced today with four nominations including best feature. They will face off against Certain Women, Everybody Wants Some, Moonlight, and Paterson.
La La Land, Free Fire, and I Am Not Your Negro took home the People’s Choice Awards at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
The North American rights to the documentary I Am Not Your Negro have landed at Magnolia Pictures. The film follows James Baldwin’s unfinished novel Remember This House.
The famed mother-daughter duo of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher is well-known and come fall, they’re going to have a new spotlight on them: the 54th New York Film Festival, when their documentary Bright Lights screens there. This is only one of several documentaries that the Film Society of Lincoln Center has unveiled for this year’s festivals.
