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 […]

Now more than ever we’re all so grateful that we’re living through an unprecedented golden age of not just great TV but tons of TV. There are too many shows to count let alone watch but over the course of 2019 we watched as many as we could, which amounted to about 200 series all […]

2020 may be a struggle but 2019 was a great year in film and, even if we’re a bit Covid-delayed in finally wrapping up our annual awards season, it’s definitely worth looking back and celebrating the great art that got us here and will help us get through. Below are the winners of our 2019 […]

There’s too much TV for us to watch everything but we watched a lot in 2018 and with this year’s slate of winners we’ve tried to highlight some shows that haven’t gotten the awards love we think they deserve (and a few that have). Don’t miss our 2018 Nominee Interview Series, featuring exclusive interviews with dozens […]

2017 was one of the greatest years of filmmaking we’ve ever seen. On one hand, that made finding enough brilliant nominees to fill each category of the Critics’ Pick Awards a breeze. On the other hand, it made picking winners a nightmare. There were a few things on which consensus came easy (Outstanding Actor came […]

As a group of new plays and musicals toss open their doors this Spring to welcome NYC theatergoers into the new worlds that their artists have collaboratively crafted, it is time to reflect upon the exceptional productions that opened in New York during the 2016 theatre season. On January 1, My Entertainment World announced the […]

Okay, time for another round. For some reason I forgot why I chose Best Actor/Best Actress categories—was there a special reason for that? They seem like a 1950’s vestige. Who knows. So here are the winners, acknowledging that two productions win twice, but I can assure those who didn’t see them they really were that […]

2016 was an amazing year of TV- one of the most eclectic, challenging, entertaining seasons in history with too many brilliant shows to count. We tried to watch as many of them as possible to accurately capture what stood out this year. We obviously failed- it’s literally impossible to watch everything- but we think this […]

2016 was a pretty decent year in movies, marked by some really exceptional performances and a couple scripts for the ages. In choosing our winners, we tried to strike a balance between the inarguable and the under-appreciated, differing from the Oscars wherever possible. The result is a list that contains a couple massive hits and […]

In 2015, Boston theatre pulled no punches. Historical legacies were questioned, minority voices cried louder, the talent of female theatre artists was not in question, and plenty of performers strutted their stuff in drag, across football fields, through time and space and gender, and over lines of chalk.

Started in May 2015, London is MyTheatre’s youngest branch. We have only six months and sixty-three reviews under our belt yet, even without a full year to cover, there’s been so much going on in London since May that we had plenty to choose from when it came time to join the My Entertainment World […]

We nominated those we thought were particularly worthy (including many wholly ignored by the big awards shows) and now it’s time to announce the winners. […]
