Hollywood news banter

  • That new best popular film category proved to be pretty unpopular. The Academy is putting its new category on hold indefinitely.
  • The funny thing is, there may actually be some “popular” films up for best picture this year, with or without the help of the Academy. ‘Black Panther’ was already a massive box-office success and is considered a best picture contender, and ‘First Man’ and ‘A Star is Born’ have gotten strong reviews from festivals and will likely draw big crowds. This is coming off a strong summer box office.
  • Also a surprise big hit this summer? Documentaries.
