Awards Radar Community: Which Oscar Nominated Film That Went Home Empty-Handed Do You Like Best?
If you happen to check the home page of Awards Radar, earlier in the week I updated the poll we feature on the right side. It hadn’t been updated since Oscar nominations, since it was a fairly evergreen poll. Now, however, it’s been replaced with a brand new one. It’s Academy Award related, of course, […] More
Awards Radar Community: How Do This Year’s Oscar Winners Compare to Last Year’s?
As I prepare to kick off my rankings of the Top 25 winners of each Oscar category (probably next month), I thought I would put recent history up for debate.

Oscar Viewership Increases with 18.7 Million Viewers
One of the things poured over in the immediate aftermath of the Academy Awards, aside from the winners and losers, are the ratings. Were viewers tuned in to the ceremony? Did they care what Oscar went to whom? Well, apparently this year, they did. Not only did Sunday night bring back a sense of normalcy […] More
Last Night’s Academy Awards Ceremony and the Success of ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ is an Important Lesson for Future Oscar Prognostication
A lot of important things happened last night at the Academy Awards. We saw winners in categories that we’d never seen before. A film and a studio dominated in a way we’ve never seen. Surprising movies went home empty-handed. Beyond all of that, the way we predict the Oscars may well have changed. That’s a […] More
95th Oscars Handed Out with Much Love for ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ and Especially ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’
And that’s that. The most unpredictable and up in the air Academy Awards in recent memory have come to a close. Two films certainly stood out from the pack, as the lions share of the wins were scooped up by All Quiet on the Western Front and Everything Everywhere All At Once, the latter leading […] More
