There is a pattern of controversy around the biopics of famous people

The nominations for the 95th Academy Awards were announced this week, marking the start of awards season. Toughen up!

The air smells like new arguments about who should be awarded and who shouldn’t, who was the biggest revelation nominee, and who was the biggest reprimand.

What is modern media if not something that makes some people angry?

Amy Winehouse, a British singer, and songwriter who was 27 years old when she died in 2011, broke my heart.

To her nightmarish voice and troubled life—she was a bluesman stuck in a pop world, in my opinion concerned—it was difficult not to be sad about her death at such a young era. Even after she died 10 years ago, I wrote about how important she was to the music business.

Now, fans are upset about “Back to Black,” a movie that will make about her life.

One of the numerous people complaining appears to be Marisa Abela, who was chosen to play Winehouse, who doesn’t look enough like her to do the job. It can be hard to pull off a role like Winehouse’s because she has such a recognizable style.

There’s also something to say about how we treat many dead celebrities.

Some people didn’t like how Naomi Ackie played the late Whitney Houston in “Whitney Houston: I Want to Dance With Somebody” or how Austin Butler played The King in “Elvis,” even though Butler got a lot of praise from critics and was nominated for an Oscar.

Even when the actor gets the look right, as Rami Malek did in “Bohemian Rhapsody” as the late musician Freddie Mercury, or has the subject’s family’s approval, as Gerard Butler did with both the Presleys, won’t consider a few viewers.

I believe it’s hard for actors to get wide support for “resurrecting” dead celebrities because we often keep them in our minds as they were at the length of their fame because nothing or nobody will ever be as good as the first.

Will This Year’s Oscars Have the Fortune of the Irish?

This awards season, Ireland has a lot to be proud of. The coming-of-age story “The Quiet Girl” became the first Irish film to be nominated for an Academy Award in the international feature category.

And that wasn’t the end of history.

Set in 1923 on a made-up island off Ireland, “The Banshees of Inisherin” got nine Oscar nominations. Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, and Barry Keoghan were all nominated for their roles. These nominations were more than what “Belfast” and “In the Name of the Father” had received in the past.

For his role in “Aftersun,” Irish actor Paul Mescal was also nominated for best actor, and the dramedy “An Irish Goodbye” was chosen as the best live-action short.

All the nominees get a bottle of the black stuff from me.

British musician and singer Sam Smith has the latest album, which fits right in with this global concept I didn’t know I wanted.

Over a decade has passed since Smith wowed as a featured vocalist on Disclosure’s smash hit track “Latch,” and now he’s back with “Gloria.” Their subsequent albums, “The Thrill of It All” (2017) and “Love Goes” (2020), followed “In the Lonely Hour” (2014).

The album features collaborations with Ed Sheeran, Jessie Reyez, the Jamaican singer Koffee, and Kim Petras (their duo “Unholy,” a TikTok favorite, created history as the first song by an openly non-binary or transgender artist to top the Billboard Hot 100).

Shotgun Wedding

A romantic comedy featuring Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel as a marriage whose entire wedding ceremony is held captive during their destination celebration? I don’t need to say much to sell that. For this reason, I won’t.

Besides Jennifer Coolidge and Cheech Marin, Lenny Kravitz also appears in the film. A perfect ensemble if there ever was one!

You can watch “Shotgun Wedding” right now on Amazon Prime.

Death by Fame:

Big metropolis flashing lights and a body in “Death by Fame.”

Many people travel to Hollywood in search of celebrity but instead experience heartbreak. That’s basically what the new ID series is about on Discovery+. ID (for Investigation Discovery) is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, the same firm that owns CNN.

In the premiere, Drew Carey’s ex-girlfriend and sex therapist Amie Harwick is murdered.

How I Met Your Father:

If you’re interested in watching the second season of “How I Met Your Father” streaming on Hulu, I have three words for you: Neil Patrick Harris.

Hulu is staying quiet about Harris’s return to the character of Barney Stinson on the spinoff show, but we know that he will be appearing in it. Surely, though, he’ll retain his caustic womanizing ways.

Season 2 has officially premiered, with the first episode available online immediately.
