It’s surely been a productive Monday for us here at the Media Command HQ as I’ve already shared updates about the upcoming “Shang-Chi” movie trailer and the reunion of Mudvayne over on the PiercingMetal.com website. Now its time to address the recently announced nominations for the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Sometimes I will dissect this kind of list for use on the Metal Geek side of the fence but this time I have enough content flowing there so let’s peruse these nominees. I will return at the close for sure.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm
Judas and the Black Messiah
Promising Young Woman
To All the Boys: Always and Forever
The winners of the 56th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards were recently revealed and I’ve rushed out the rundown for your reading pleasure. Due to scheduling conflicts on some items I was doing, I didn’t manage to watch the broadcast but that is fine since I didn’t really listen to a lot of Country Music this past year. I like a fair amount of it just the same but let’s go and check out those winners. I’ll be back at the close with some additional thoughts.
Entertainer of the Year: WINNER – Luke Bryan
Album of the Year:
Born Here Live Here Die Here – Luke Bryan
Mixtape Vol. 1 – Kane Brown
Never Will – Ashley McBryde
Skeletons – Brothers Osborne WINNER – Starting Over – Chris Stapleton
The Press Release:
It’s happening, and you’re invited! In a historic culmination of New York State’s statewide initiative, NY PopsUp, to bring live entertainment back, the Tribeca Festival™, presented by AT&T, announced plans today to transform prominent locations into an expansive 12-day multi-screen outdoor celebration. The event will take place from June 9-20 as the first major film festival held in person bringing filmmakers, artists, storytellers and audiences together under the New York skyline.
“The Tribeca Film Festival was born out of our mission to bring people together in the aftermath of 9/11. We’re still doing it. And as New York emerges from the shadow of Covid-19, it seems just right to bring people together again in-person for our 20th anniversary festival.” — Robert De Niro, Co-Founder of Tribeca Festival
“Tribeca is a community of the most resilient and talented storytellers on the planet. In 20 years, our community of creators and partners have become a family. This summer we are excited to reunite as Tribeca becomes a centerpiece of live entertainment in neighborhoods across New York City.” – Jane Rosenthal, Co-Founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Festival Continue reading Tribeca Announces Return To Live Entertainment→
