Pilot Season Slows Down as Broadcast Networks Rethink Strategy in Streaming Era

Now more than ever, the broadcast networks are feeling the need to change up their typical pilot season strategy. With existing streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus and Amazon and ne…

The Oscars again snubbed female directors. But women producers had a record year

Eight of the nine best-picture-nominated films have at least one credited female producer. That’s the most since the the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences began nominating up to 10 best picture contenders about a decade ago.

Eight of the nine Oscar best picture nominees were produced by at least one woman. But the lack of directing nominees sparks fresh criticism of Hollywood.

Can Inclusion Boost Box Office? Films With Diverse Leads Have More Success Domestically, New Study Shows

A new USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative study found that movies with white leads or co-leads receive more marketing support, bigger budgets and are distributed wider than those with female or underrepresented leads. Those factors were more predictive for box office performance than the lead character alone.

"Stories with underrepresented leads/co-leads make money. Period," Dr. Stacy Smith, the report's author, says.

Oscars: What the '1917' PGA Win and 'Parasite' SAG Win Mean for Best Picture

Why do Oscar-watchers pay close attention to the PGA's choice for 'Best Picture'? Two reasons: The voting rolls of the PGA and the Academy are almost exactly the same size — roughly 8,000 people — and the PGA Awards is the only major awards ceremony that employs the same sort of "preferential ballot" that the Academy Awards has for the past decade.

Two films with no individual acting nominees pulled off monumental wins over the weekend.
