With 2020 in the rearview mirror and our annual Nominee Interview Series concluded, it’s time to announce the winners of this year’s Critics’ Pick Awards! Covid-19 restrictions put a major damper on our awards season this year, cutting our theatre division drastically and shutting down the cinema awards entirely. But television, boy, television was our […]

It’s time once again for our annual Critics’ Pick Award nominations! It’s an understatement to say that 2020’s been an unusual time. Covid-19 restrictions put a major damper on our awards season this year, cutting our theatre division drastically and shutting down the cinema awards entirely. But television, boy, television was our everything this year. […]

I loved NBC’s weird little jukebox musical show. Buried as a midseason replacement then rolled out strangely with the pilot dropping long before the actual series launch, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist was easy to miss. Even I missed most of it and had to go back and catch up after weirdly seeing episode ten before episodes […]

Every year, I try to see as many new release films as I can. I rank everything as I go so that, when it’s all said and done, I can publish a list that completely encapsulates my experience of the year in film. Usually I run this series through the first few months of the […]

Popular culture is fractured today more than it has ever been. Keeping up with the deluge of good content out there is a full-time job – or maybe that’s just my excuse for not getting around to watching Fleabag yet. Regardless, this profusion of good art makes it so year-end best-of lists are even less […]

It’s time once again for our annual Critics’ Pick Award nominations! Below is a list of the art and artists that stood out to us in 2019 in Toronto theatre. Who Qualifies?

There was so much incredible TV this decade. An insane amount, really. This was also the decade that changed the medium so drastically that, for both better and worse, it’s almost unrecognizable. My initial list for this post was over 80 shows. I’ve cut it down to 30 favourites with just a little bit of cheating by […]

These aren’t the best movies of the decade. I don’t know what those are. And neither do you. The best we can do is mention what we loved most and stop trying to claim that any piece of art can be the “best”. It’s been a long 10 years. Here are the movies that helped me get through: The […]

I wasn’t going to do this. I’m wary of “best of” lists at the best of times, the decade doesn’t really end until next year, and I couldn’t help but be hyper-aware of what I was leaving off the list because time and conflict and sunlight have cast pretty big shadows over much of the theatre I loved […]

2018 was an odd year in movies. It started off with a bang as the last few gems of the sublime 2017 slate hit wide release alongside irresistible early-season contenders like game-changing blockbuster Black Panther in February and gorgeous indie Thoroughbreds in March. It was a year noted for landmark inclusion and defied expectations. It felt […]

There’s so much TV these days that it’s impossible to keep up with it all. Nonetheless, we’ve tried to capture the best of the best on this list, representing a range of shows from the incredibly diverse TV landscape that made 2018 so memorable. Who Qualifies? Any show that released new episodes on TV or […]

After a rollercoaster year for theatre in Toronto and the surrounding area, it’s time once again to look back at the best of the past 12 months. As we head into 2019 with promising new voices at the helm of our powerful institutions and a sense of real hope in the community and across the […]

June 7-10, members of our MyTV staff braved the heat and the crowds and the too-much-brisket tummyaches in order to take part in the seventh annual Austin Television Festival (brisket not mandatory, just encouraged). Over four days, we took in a slew of great panels, attended some really exciting screenings, and talked to a lot […]

For the past five years, I’ve been ranking every film I see- just the new releases, from January 1st to December 31st. The rankings are subjective, based entirely on how much I enjoyed and/or connected with or appreciated the film rather than on some sort of objective artistic criteria. Basically, this is a list of […]

We’re less than a month away from the 90th Academy Awards ceremony and, somewhat surprisingly, the race is just about anybody’s game. Well, not anybody. There are a select number of proper contenders and a few films that need to practice their “It was an honor just to be nominated!” reactions. But unlike in years […]

Our favourite Fringe Festival ever, expanded dance coverage, and a shifting indie landscape were the defining features of our 2017 in Toronto theatre. Our staff collectively saw hundreds of productions and below are our picks for the best of the best over the past 12 months. Who Qualifies? Any production one of our Toronto writers […]

I can’t stay awake at the theatre if I don’t eat first but it’s sometimes hard to figure out where to go, especially if you’re not super familiar with the area the theatre is in. So I headed to Taste of Toronto over the summer to get the lay of the local culinary land and […]

We’re just past the halfway point of the year, and I wanted to share which releases I feel are frontrunners for my year end list. As well, this way people can be be enjoying some things throughout the year, rather than spending December/January trying to catch up on everything they’ve missed. 10. Animal Collective – […]
