Susanna Reid had to shut down a “churlish” Piers Morgan after he was overcome with a case of the green-eyed monster following her triple award win. Reid picked up Best Television Talk Show for Good Morning Britain, Celebrity Personality of the Year and Best TV Presenter, which Morgan was also nominated for, at the National Reality TV Awards. Reid flaunted her gongs on Good Morning Britain much to the annoyance of Morgan who said: “Nobody actually wanted to be on that. These are the three same awards you won last year. Last time I said what is this event? No one knows this event. “Is it something you put on? I checked who was there. There were no stars there apart from you. Is it one of those things where if you say you’re going they’ll give you all the awards?” Shutting him down, Reid replied: “You know you sound really churlish. You can knock it down as much as you like.” Morgan set about biting into the orange and purple trophies … [Read more...] about ‘Jealous’ Piers Morgan tries to trash Susanna Reid’s triple award win

Brian Truitt USA TODAY Published 6:55 p.m. UTC Aug 8, 2018 The timing couldn’t be better for the release of “The Meg” this week since the Academy Awards is also apparently jumping the shark. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rolled out some backlash-worthy changes to the awards on Wednesday, including a new category “designed around achievement in popular film,” which could equate to some kind of Oscar for best blockbuster. Details are apparently still forthcoming about what the eligibility requirements are for said "popular" films – perhaps an appearance by Thanos is a prerequisite, or at least one masked individual with superpowers? Now, I’m not mad about having the Oscars earlier in 2020 (stretching awards season to March seems excessive anyway) or limiting the telecast to three hours (good luck with that). But having an award specifically for blockbusters is an absolutely horrendous idea. Even with all … [Read more...] about #OscarsSoStupid: Why a best blockbuster Academy Award is a horrendous idea
