The MyEntertainmentWorld Podcast returns with its first theatre-centric episode. Managing Editor Kelly is joined by the editor of MyTheatre’s New York branch Theresa Perkins to discuss the just-announced Tony Award nominations. Hamilton‘s domination (a record breaking 16 nods!), the show’s legacy, diversity on the stage vs. the screen, the best of Broadway’s non-musical productions, the […]

I am finally read to say it: I love Trevor Noah. The most remarkable part of all this is that The Daily Show, with its new host, remains The Daily Show. It remains a tiny voice of acerbic sincerity in the midst of a sea of politics and media. It remains witty and passionate and […]

Image Comics: Where Creators Own the Mainstream was the first of five panels showcasing creators of Image Comics publications at this year’s Comic-Con…

Natsume has just announced a new entry in the Harvest Moon series, “Seeds of Memories,” for Wii U, iOS, Android, and PC, set to show at E3 this month. Various sources report features like tool upgrades, a bobcat pet, 10 marriage candidates, and unlockable “seeds” that are obtained through forging friendships with the locals. For […]

Editor’s Note: For six years running, contributing author Zach Adler has spent the month of April putting out a poem a day. By turns earnest and wry, these poems are based on prompts (and often forms) chosen at random using a deck of cards. The prompts range from “The Grandfather Paradox” to “Emotional Adultery” to […]

Listed below are the category changes, and, my two cents on each change, is it a good thing or bad thing? * Producers can also petition for a certain category in Limited Series versus Drama. They can also petition their placement. – A comedy series will now be defined as a program that clocks in […]

Well that happened! To say that this year’s Oscar nominees are a disappointment is a bit of an understatement. Let’s start with the first announcement, which was done by J.J. Abrams and Alfonse Cuaron. Two of the biggest locks for nominations were shut out, The Lego Movie in Best Animated Feature, and Life Itself in […]

Many journalists are saying that the BAFTA Awards- the British version of the Academy Awards- do not matter as much, because Oscar voting ended yesterday, but last year they showed certain trends, and there were also things they missed. There is no perfect barometer for predicting the Oscar nominations since the timeline of rubber-stamping has […]

For theatre fans, the holiday season means more in New York than jam-packed stores, high-kicking Rockettes, and the dreaded SantaCon. The new year brings with it the uplifting promise of hope – hope that the spring season will bring unique, creative, and unforgettable new productions to the Broadway stage. You see, there is a certain […]

People who do not watch a lot of television may be scratching their head at yesterday’s Golden Globe Television nominations. Asking, where are Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory? Or what are The Affair, Transparent, and The Knick? All good questions, and they can be answered with a simple, the Golden Globes love new […]

It was the snub heard round the world. Angelina Jolie was not nominated for a single Golden Globe yesterday. Jolie was a contender for Producer/ Director on Unbroken, and in the Lead Actress in Comedy/Musical for Maleficent; she did not reap a single nomination. It will be hard for this film to rebound from this, […]

Somewhere in a high tower I imagine Harvey Weinstein is looking into a cauldron, and cackling. The Weinstein Company did exceptionally well today, their film The Imitation Game has 3, including Best Ensemble, Actor (Benedict Cumberbatch), and Supporting Actress (Keira Knightly). I make this joke because Harvey just has a way of making these types […]

Over the next couple months, you will probably hear the phrase “Well Boyhood dominated…” or “Boyhood sweeps ‘insert critics group or award show’.” Rightfully, so! Yesterday the New York Film Critics Circle (NYFCC) anointed Boyhood with 3 wins, Best Film, Best Director-Richard Linklater, and Best Supporting Actress-Patricia Arquette. The only other film to win multiple […]

Birdman leads the Independent Spirit Award (ISA) Nominations with 6, Boyhood, Selma, and Nightcrawler follow closely with 5 nominations each. For those keeping score, Foxcatcher was not eligible in any of these categories, while Imitation Game was, and was snubbed. Harvey Weinstein has bigger fish to fry, but ISA winners over the last few years […]

You used to be my favourite. In fact, you’re the first network I remember watching (that includes YTV, and Canadian 90s kids lived for YTV). Full House, then Sister Sister and, perhaps most importantly, Boy Meets World– these were the shows that shaped my worldview more indelibly than any others. My dad worked a lot […]

The statistic all over the Internet, troubling studio executives and producers of the world, is the domestic summer box office was down 14.6 percent from last year. Some films found footing in this drought, especially good movies. I think there are lessons to be learned that could help change things, but will anyone listen? Make […]

Many years ago, I remember being obsessed with saying “Good Morning, Vietnam” as a young kid.  I was probably five or six, but I remember this loud boisterous guy bringing humor and joy with this phrase. Then came the re-runs of Mork and Mindy, was this the same guy from that movie?  This was different, […]

A lot of people probably think I’m too young to be a Ramones fan. I’m 30 now, which means I was about 12 when the Ramones broke up in 1996. I discovered the Ramones around that time and fell in love with them, but I never got to see them perform. Going to concerts was […]

As the story goes, in 1973, German bricklayer Rolf Schumacher built a racing kart using an old motorcycle engine and his pedal kart. His son Michael, at the age of four, promptly hopped in and crashed it head on into a lamp post. From that point onwards Michael Schumacher began racing proper karts on formal […]

It wasn’t until the day after Silicon Valley’s third episode did I even realize that the actor Christopher Evan Welch, who played borderline-autistic billionaire Peter Gregory, had died back in December. Episode five would be his final episode, my friend had told me, leaving my mouth agape to fill the pit in my stomach with […]

After 95 interviews in the Nominee Interview Series and the announcements of the Boston, New York and Toronto My Theatre Award Winners, and the My TV Award Winners, it’s time for the 2013 My Cinema Award Winners. The Oscars snubbed a lot of our favourites again this year but we also somehow found ourselves rewarding […]

That means it’s time for My TV. The 7th Annual My TV Award Award Winners are below, celebrating one of the most groundbreaking seasons […]

On Monday April 7th, approximately 150 of Toronto’s most inspirational theatre artists gathered with us at Hugh’s Room to celebrate all the amazing stage work created in and around Toronto throughout 2013. We enjoyed hors d’oeuvres like hoisin beef cups and bacon-wrapped water chestnuts, sipped cocktails and danced to live music provided by the fantastic […]
