Giving two award-worthy performances in one year is no guarantee that you will make it to the Academy Awards for either of them. Proving that to be the case this year is Emily Blunt, who starred in "Mary Poppins Returns" and "A Quiet Place," both of which earned her Screen Actors Guild nods, and neither of which were among the performances mentioned at this morning's announcement of nominations for the 91st annual Academy Awards. (And it wasn't the first time; despite six career Golden Globe nominations and wins, Blunt has yet to be nominated for an Oscar.)While there were some pleasant surprises among the nominees – "Black Panther," for example, was the rare superhero film to get any respect from the Academy, let alone a nomination for Best Picture – there were also some notable omissions, not least of which was Michael B. Jordan, so memorable as the villain Killmonger in "Black Panther." And while the film earned well-deserved nominations for production design, music, and … [Read more...] about Oscar snubs & surprises: Emily Blunt, Michael B.

By Jacquie Oliverius | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: October 23, 2018 at 5:11 am | UPDATED: October 23, 2018 at 6:16 am Week 5 of Season 27 was “Disney Night,” and it seemed as if everyone — from celebs and pros, to cast and crew — wrapped themselves in colorful costumes, danced to fun and familiar music, and were surrounded by all of the Disney characters. The fun and frantic show opening with the pros and the mini-pros of DWTS Jr. put the audience in the ballroom, and at home, in a happy mood. In addition, everyone in the audience wore glowing Mickey Mouse ears! At the end of the program, it looked like host Tom Bergeron and co-host Erin Andrews would throw a wet blanket over the two hours of high spirits by eliminating either Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten (shout of “What?” from the audience) or DeMarcus Ware and Lindsay Arnold (sounds of “no”). But Tom then said, “It’s neither of … [Read more...] about Dancing With the Stars’: Why is ‘Grocery Store Joe’ Amabile still around?
By Jacquie Oliverius | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: September 26, 2018 at 3:27 am | UPDATED: September 26, 2018 at 4:53 am It was Part 2 of Week 1 on “Dancing With the Stars,” and someone was destined for elimination. Host Tom Bergeron and co-host Erin Andrews introduced the 13 couples in groups of four or five and announced who was safe and who was in jeopardy, based on Monday’s judges’ scores combined with the overnight viewer votes. I was sure that Joe Amabile and Jenna Johnson would be in jeopardy, considering that they had the lowest judges’ score of only 14 out of 30. Silly me! Joe’s fan base must be enormous because he and Jenna were declared safe! What?! And then Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten, who had a judges’ score of 21, were in jeopardy! I guess it’s because she is a model and social media personality, and not in “The Bachelor” nation like Joe. This is going to be a crazy season. Anyway, those also in … [Read more...] about ‘Dancing With the Stars’: Good-bye Nikki Glaser, hello ‘DWTS Jr.’ stars
