Episode 18 – Trump v Mexico, Oscar Nominations, Latino Actors

01.31.2017 | By |



This week, I breakdown the Oscar nominations with NY1’s film critic Neil Rosen (:55). We’ll talk snubs and surprises and go over the top categories. Also, I’ll tackle the lack of visibility of Latinos in Hollywood films with my good friend and film contributor on The Insider and Entertainment Tonight, Tara McNamara (29:30). Why are we so invisible when we should also be at the forefront of film and pop culture? And finally, I discuss Trump, the wall, our new Mexico feud and sanctuary cities with The Wall Street Journal’s Laura Meckler (20:41). Will cities abide by the new immigrant proposals? Miami already has and that is bad news for Latinos. Read More

TODAY: SAG Awards, Armie Hammer, Weekend Box-Office

This morning’s segment felt as if Kathie Lee, Hoda and I had an off-camera conversation that happened to be caught-on-camera. They have an incredible ability to make an interview feel like a nice chat. I usually prepare, research, read many articles for the segment, but as soon as Hoda asks you the first question, you can’t help but feel as if they are very close friends of yours who you went to lunch with. Time flies by when you are with them. Enjoy the segment.

The Complete 2017 Oscar Nominations List

01.24.2017 | By |

2016 really began presenting its best movies in August, I know, a weird month to exhibit great work, but it brought us delightful films such as Florence Foster Jenkins, Hell or High Water and Kubo and the Two Strings amongst others. All three movies have been nominated for Oscars. Damien Chazelles’s La La Land though, tied the record for most nominations in Academy history with 14 nods tying James Cameron’s Titanic and Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s classic All About Eve from 1950. These nominations also denote the diverse work of new filmmakers who introduced new faces and bold stories to a changing America. Check out the list!

‘House Of Cards’ Season 5 To Premiere May 30th!

Who would make a better President? Frank Underwood or Donald Trump? Season 5 of House of Cards will never be more timely and reflective of the current political landscape. With Donald Trump now officially in office, Kevin Spacey’s fictional character of President Frank Underwood will be a eerie example of life imitating art. Check out the trailer and tell me your eyes didn’t pop wide open. Read More
