A-Sides with Jon Chattman: "The Forgotscars:" Celebrating the Oscar Omitted
Huffington Post - 29 days
I do this every year. I don't know if anyone reads it. Frankly, it's hard to know who reads my stuff lately. It gets lost in the abyss of a Trump presidency. Anyway, with the nominations just announced for the 89th Academy Awards, naturally I'm left bummed out with the omissions. That said, this year the Academy - for the most part - got it right. Sure, they flubbed. I mean no Amy Adams? Are you nuts? The Best Actress race should've been between the Arrival star and 20th Century Women's Annette Bening yet neither were nominated. This is Ridley Scott and Ben Affleck bad. Other omissions? An as expected low showing for Nocturnal Animals, and a complete shaft to Tom Hanks. Oh, and yes Mel Gibson there's a place for you in Trump's America. Anyway, back to the start and me writing this column each year. Here's my annual "forgotscars" - a list of nominees of those not nominated. There are no awards but feel free to weigh in on the comments section. Best Picture Deadpool Lo ...

John Krasinski Wishes More Parents Were Honest About How Hard It Is
Huffington Post - 3 months
John Krasinski knows you can’t totally prepare for parenthood. In an interview with Today, the actor opened up about what he’s learned raising his two daughters ― Hazel, 2, and Violet, 6 months ― with his wife Emily Blunt.  “You can read all the books you want ― I certainly thought I was prepared because I had such amazing parents growing up,” Krasinski recalled. “I just figured, I’ll just do exactly what they did. And then you realize that moment-to- moment, you don’t know what they did because there is no manual. There’s no exact way to go about things.”  He added, “You’re just trying. There’s no perfection. There’s no school. There’s no defined way to go about it. You’re just learning.” Krasinski said fatherhood has given him a newfound appreciation for his own parents and their dedication to raising him well. He said having kids has also given him a different perspective on his pre-child life.  “I think the biggest question I have is: what did I do with my life bef ...

Donald Trump's Women Take Him To Task In 'SNL' Spoof Of Beyonce's 'Sorry'
Huffington Post - 4 months
Without them, Donald Trump would “just be that guy with the weird hair.” That’s the message from the key women in the Republican candidate’s life in a biting “Saturday Night Live” spoof of Beyonce’s hit song “Sorry.” “Melanianade” sees Cecily Strong playing the brash businessman’s wife Melania, Emily Blunt and Vanessa Bayer as his daughters Ivanka and Tiffany, Kate McKinnon as campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and Sasheer Zamata as his “one black friend” Omarosa Manigault. They all invariably criticize him for taking them for granted.  The women smash up a TV on which Alec Baldwin as Trump is appearing, and destroy his portrait. There’s even a small cameo by an actor playing Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R). “I wrote this all by myself,” says Cecily Strong as Melania at the end of the song ― a clear reference to her plagiarism scandal at the Republican National Convention. Check the clip out above and see how it com ...
