    Top 10: Best Oscar-Nominated Comedic Performances

    In honor of her upcoming film “Snatched,” today we celebrate Goldie Hawn‘s incredible comedic Oscar win in 1969 for “Cactus Flower.” The Oscars often get skewered for not acknowledging comedic performances as often as they do the frowning side of the thespian mask; after all, the old adage goes that it’s harder to make someone laugh than […] More

    Film Review #2: Spy (★★★)

    “Spy,” the latest comedic collaboration between director Paul Feig and star Melissa McCarthy, is not just funny – it’s funny as hell.

It’s a bit early to know which will survive the test of time, but I’m willing to bet […] More
