Studies Show… No One Cares About The Oscars

When this year’s Oscars best picture envelope is opened, viewers might not be on the edge of their seat to see if “Nomadland,” “Mank” or “Promising Young Woman” — or another contender — is named. Instead, they might be scratching their heads. Although the pandemic has left households paying for more streaming services than ever, the majority of the best picture nominees at the Oscars are unknown to entertainment consumers.

After the best picture nominees were announced, industry researcher Guts + Data surveyed 1,500 active entertainment consumers to gauge their awareness of the films, using the title, stars and poster as prompts

According to the survey, the most known best picture nominee was “Judas and the Black Messiah,” the HBO Max drama about Black Panther Party leader Fred Hampton, with just over 46% awareness. Netflix’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” was second with 39% awareness, followed by Searchlight Pictures’ “Nomadland” with 35% awareness. Less than a quarter of those surveyed were familiar with Amazon Studios’ “The Sound of Metal” (23% awareness) and the Hollywood valentine “Mank” (18%), also on Netflix.

Aka… We don’t care about these movies, although I’m sure they’re all amazing!

We Finally Know Who Of The Royal Family Made Inappropriate Comments About Archie’s Skin Color

When Mghan and Harry did their tell all interview with Oprah, Meghan revealed some shocking information:

“In the months when I was pregnant, all around the same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

They never revealed who said it, but we’ve all been wondering.. Now apparently we have answers..

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s names were also thrown into the ring, but Oprah later revealed to Gayle King on CBS This Morning that the pair were not involved in the conversations.

Well Lady Colin Campbell has claimed that it was actually Princess Anne who spoke with Harry about Archie’s skin. However, the 71-year-old emphasized that the alleged incident was just a big misunderstanding in a YouTube video released on Tuesday. In the lengthy clip, Campbell cited an inside palace source and insisted the family member was only sharing their concern for Meghan’s cultural capabilities and not the color of her skin.

“There were no concerns about Meghan’s color. Princess Anne was rightly concerned that if the marriage proceeded and there were children there would be huge problems, not because of Meghan’s color, but because of Meghan’s inability and determination to remain unable to appreciate the cultural differences.”

Uhmm…. What? Still not okay to say
