Who’s It Gonna Be?

Oscar nominations are coming out tomorrow morning (Monday, January 13th) — so the Chair is holding off on his weekly post to make his own snap judgements. Will the Chair be up at 5am to hear John Cho and Issa Rae read the announcements? Unlikely. Will he have a lot to say if Adam Sandler doesn’t get a nom for Uncut Gems? You bet your tuchus he will.  And don’t even get us started on #OscarsSoWhiteMaleandOld.

Check back tomorrow for the Chair’s Oscar update. Join in the outrage! Delight in the unlikely (Parasite acting noms? J Lo’s Oscar pole dance?)! It’ll all be here.

The Chair as The Lounger

The Chair is taking a well deserved week off… lounging, of course. Imagine him soaking up some rays and pondering the thought, “does anyone in Hollywood really work between Thanksgiving and Christmas?” (Note: Watching screeners does not count as work!)

In the meantime, check out The Two Popes — we have a feeling the Chair will have lots to say about it. Oh, and binge Mrs. Maisel, will ya?
