Cool to see the return to their indie roots w/best feature. The past few years have brought at least one nominee grossing $45m or more (Get Out, Manchester, Spotlight, Birdman). Besides unreleased Beale Street, highest grossing this year will be Eighth Grade, w/$13m

Netflix and Amazon, take notice: Apple-A24 is a partnership that can bear serious fruit on both sides

If you were making a list of the most re-watchable modern movies—the kind you will tune in to see anytime, anywhere, no matter how many times you’ve seen it—none would come close to The Princess Bride. Back to the Future on a good day, maybe. _ Maybe _.

I'm reminded of that Raiders scene where the swordsman does his fancy knife work and Indiana just takes out his gun and knocks him off.

Certainly could head there. But no one rushes in this way.

(And you gotta think Apple will take those other options -- in family-film realms, eg)

Also, Apple keeps its options open while A24 retains its independence. Far smarter than an acquisition.

A24-Apple is about as smart as entertainment partnerships get. Apple just found a fast-track into the prestige-film game, and A24 has another financial backstop in case its hedge-fund backers go cold. Something for everybody.

The FIlmStruck letter is potent with a lot of big names, but feels like it should have been addressed to John Stankey, who ultimately makes the call on whether it lives or dies and determines the company's streaming strategy, and not WB's Toby Emmerich

CBS had set the shameless-synergy bar high with every fourth guest star ever to appear on CSI presenting at the Grammys but the random American Idol plugs mid-monologue at the may actually have them beat

As someone who grew up loving classic child-beast tearfests like Black Stallion and Old Yeller, I watched that Dumbo trailer and thought "finally someone is bringing them back." Then: "And that someone is Tim Burton!"

And now Mavis Staples! Not many modern award-shows giving her their stage

There is certainly plenty of pop drivel, but gotta hand the Country Music Association props for giving more offbeat/non-radio-friendly music its due--acts like Chris Stapleton, Pistol Annies, Midland and Ricky Skaggs all getting their moment, or three

Google just had a big in-show plug from a 20-year serviceman touting the company's USO deal and job training for veterans. Effort is very noble; spot was a cringily awkward (and transparent) attempt by Silicon Valle to negate its elitist coastal image

Since you may not be watching the , a popular duo just sang a heartwrenching ode to tequila while their piano caught fire, Chris Stapleton's producer compared Jesus to Lionel Richie and then Disney premiered the Dumbo trailer
