This year's Golden Globe award winners underscore not only this broadening trend in content consumption, but also the fact that the future of entertainment is on consumers' terms and unconstrained by traditional broadcast models or cinematic paradigms.

If American Sniper wins one Oscar, never mind the six for which its been nominated, when this annual extravaganza of movie pomp and ceremony unfolds in Hollywood on 22 February, it will not only represent an endorsement of US exceptionalism, but worse it will stand as a grievous insult to the Iraqi people.

A recent study has found that, even in a year deemed 'female heavy', women are still only playing 30% of given speaking roles.

'I Should Like to Thank the Academy...' - The Psychology of Acceptance Speeches at the Oscars

Dr Raj Persaud | Posted 02.05.2014 | UK Entertainment

A hidden pressure of Oscar night is the psychological tightrope narcissists tread on the red carpet. Convention requires they give an acceptance speech which thanks others and indicates humility - acknowledging the contribution of colleagues to their own success.

To those who have not seen Roots, the plot may still read like a familiar story. The recent release by black British director Steve McQueen, 12 Years a Slave, may start differently, but it follows a very similar trajectory of blood, whips and brutality.
