You didn’t miss last night’s Golden Globes – you didn’t. But you may have seen the tweets. NBC announced in May 2021 that it would not be broadcasting the awards show this year after an LA Times investigation revealed the lack of diversity within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the organization that hosts the awards show. annual event, as well as evidence of some members receiving gifts that amounted to bribes. As the HFPA undergoes reforms, it hosted last night’s pared down event privately – it was not televised, or even streamed live.

Instead, the winners of the event were live-tweeted in an often bizarre fashion.

It looks like the HFPA could have taken advantage of Twitter’s paid subscription offer, which lets you undo tweets that contain errors. Last night, the HFPA’s Golden Globes Twitter account regularly forgot to note for which TV or film projects the Globe winners were winning — like Andrew Garfield’s win for “tick, tick…BOOM!”, for example — when he announced the night’s winners on social media. The organization also oddly referred to “West Side Story” (?) laughter as “the best medicine”, in a tweet which it later deleted, only to be re-posted to say that music was the best medicine – which is not the case with this saying.

Nevertheless, the event continued.

In addition to being an overall calmer year as the HFPA tries to reform its organization in the wake of controversies, the winning networks are also not touting their victories as they normally would, although some are seeing firsts and upheavals. notables.

In previous years, HBO would have gladly promoted its sweep over its rivals. The network led the night with six wins, including four for HBO and two for HBO Max. Several of them were for his TV series “Succession,” which won Best TV Drama, TV Drama Actor (Jeremy Strong) and Supporting Actress (Sarah Snook). (Apple TV+) as Best Comedy, and saw its lead actor, Jean Smart, win Best Actress in a Comedy. And Kate Winslet won Best TV Actress in a Limited Series for HBO’s “Mare of Easttown.”

Meanwhile, although Netflix led the year in nominations – including for best drama film ‘The Power of the Dog’ and drama series ‘Squid Game’ – it said it would not be taking part in the event until the HFPA institutes change. The move means he’s also not boasting a few notable firsts resulting from last night’s awards.

Netflix’s big win of the night was for its original film, “The Power of the Dog,” which became the streamer’s first-ever film to win a Golden Globe for Best Picture (Drama). The film also won Best Director (Jane Campion) and Best Supporting Actor (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

Additionally, Netflix’s hit TV series “Squid Game” received three nominations this year, leading to the first-ever win for South Korea, as South Korean actor O Yeong-su won for his role. in the series, beating “Succession’s”. Kieran Culkin (HBO) and Billy Crudup from “The Morning Show” (Apple TV+).

Netflix also won for “tick, tick…BOOM!” when Andrew Garfield won Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), though the tweet forgot to credit the project by name.

Apple TV+ picked up a win last night as “Ted Lasso’s” Jason Sudeikis took home Best Actor in a Television Series (Comedy). Hulu also got a Globe, as “Dopesick”‘s Michael Keaton won Best Actor in a Limited Television Series or Made-for-TV Movie, while Amazon Prime Video’s “The Underground Railroad” won the category. . Amazon Prime Video’s “Being the Ricardos” was highlighted with Nicole Kidman’s win as Best Actress in a Motion Picture.

In another milestone, the first trans actress to win a Golden Globe, FX’s ‘Pose’ star Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, picked up the trophy for Best Actress in a Drama.

20th Century Studio/Disney’s ‘West Side Story’ won Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) and its stars, Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose, won Best Actress and Best Actress, respectively. supporting actor. Disney’s “Encanto,” which aired on Disney+ just a month after its theatrical release, won Best Animated Feature.

Warner Bros.’ “Dune” received the Best Score (Hans Zimmer) trophy, and Will Smith was named Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) for “King Richard.” The prize for best picture in non-English language went to the Japanese film “Drive My Car”.

The full list of winners is here.

Star Trek: 4K Blu-ray Movie Review

When Star trek unceremoniously ended its three-season television series in 1969, it was with a sense of surprise that its loyal fan base not only stayed on but flourished through syndicated reruns. Despite a short-lived animated series, in the mid-1970s Star trek could no longer be ignored, and another series to call Star Trek: Phase II was commissioned by Paramount Television. While this show would have seen Kirk, Spock, and the crew of the Enterprise completely replaced, the massive success of Star wars in 1977 gave Paramount the impetus to change course and bring the franchise (and the Enterprise) back into a big-budget feature film, which became known without much imagination as Star Trek: The Movie.

Bringing together the entire team of the original series, The film sees James T. Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and the crew of the USS Enterprise reunite in a bid to prevent an unknown and hostile energy source from wreaking havoc in the universe, resulting in will destroy Earth in the process.

While some fans have traditionally made fun of the film’s slowness (sometimes harshly called The still image), it looks like opinions towards the film have softened over the past few years. Although that does not correspond to the thrills of Wrath of Khan or the accessibility of The trip home, it successfully captures the tone and “essence” of the TV series better than any other feature film, delivers a satisfying reunification of the original team, while still continuing to pose (and occasionally respond) to some of the big questions that Star trek has always been known for.

It should be noted that this 4K version offers the original theatrical release of the film and not the generally preferred director’s edition. Originally finalized in standard definition in 2001, Elements were woefully out of date by the time the franchise hit Blu-ray in 2009, let alone 2021 with Ultra HD. However, great news, Paramount has announced that it has given the go-ahead for a full 4K Director’s Edition under the same restoration team of David C. Fein, Mike Matessino and Daren R. Dochterman, who has worked with late director Robert Wise. . The film is expected to have a short exclusivity on the Paramount Plus streaming service before releasing on physical UHD and BD discs later in the year.

Video transfer

Star Trek: The Movie is featured in its original 2.35: 1 aspect ratio, encoded with H.265 compression and finished with Dolby Vision pass, in addition to an HDR-10 base layer.

Following a further push from Paramount Pictures to restore and exploit its important 4K comeback catalog, the studio has finally turned its attention to one of the Crew Gems in their vaults. Due to the age of the film, coupled with the analog origins of its ever-impressive visual effects, all of which were reflected in the previous Blu-ray release of The film, I would bet that this required more care and attention from one of the Star trek feature films – although you won’t see much evidence of it in the final product.

The film boasts a spectacular 4K restoration that reverses the ravages of time, presenting it in a quality that surpasses the original theatrical presentation. The image is crisp and detailed, free from the film artifacts that littered every image in previous presentations, with a glorious color balance and fine-grained structure.

All in all, this is a jaw-dropping achievement that will thrill fans and provide a great foundation for the next director’s edition version of the film. I can’t wait to see how this might improve some of the problematic effects.

Star Trek: 4K Blu-ray Movie Review 02 |  TweakTown.com

Audio transfer

The main audio track here is a 24-bit Dolby TrueHD 7.1 mix.

Originally released in theaters with a Dolby stereo track, Star Trek: The Movie saw a full 5.1 remix undertaken for their 2001 debut DVD, which was refined to a 7.1. remix for the 2009 Blu-ray version. This 4K version reuses the latter mix, which is more than capable in 2021.

It’s a suitably active mix, with quite a bit of surround activity. The fidelity of some of the sound effects is a bit dated (I suspect a lot of the effects from the original series were recycled), but without betraying the original mix, little could be done to improve that. The use of basses is very frequent and emphasizes the action with a sufficiently punchy activity. Jerry Goldsmith provides a good score, the greatness of which helps raise the production values ​​of the original series.

All in all, a pretty nice mix, which distinguishes between respecting the soundtrack and updating it for the HD generation.

Bonus material

Unfortunately, unlike the US version, Paramount didn’t include a copy of the standard Blu-ray in the Australian version, which means all of the video-based features are completely missing. This is a super disappointing trend that shows no signs of slowing down.

At the very least, however, the 4K disc includes the previous one. audio commentary with Michael & Denise Okuda, Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens and Daren Dochterman, alongside a isolated score which features Jerry Goldsmith’s incredible score matched to the visuals.

TikTok’s sister app for mainland China, Douyin, has started testing a payment method for short dramatic content, starting at 1 yuan ($ 0.16) per episode, Tech Planet reported on Monday.

According to the homepage of the testing service, the payment method for Douyin’s skits is similar to that for paid novels. The mode supports one-time payment with a large discount to unlock the entire collection of dramatic content. Sketches that have already been paid for can be watched over and over again with no time limit.

The report also states that Douyin plans to use the skits as a separate top-level entry and place them on the app’s homepage to gain more attention from users and creators.

Compared to TV series and movies, the filming cycle of skits is basically controlled within 10 days, and their production costs are usually in the order of several hundred thousand yuan. With a small budget and a large user base, skits represent a key rival in efficiency-focused user groups.

In addition to the payment method, Douyin’s profits in the field come from creators, advertising for personalized skits, and live e-commerce.

Kuaishou, Douyin’s rival in the Chinese market, also exerts a force in the field of short films. According to Kuaishou’s own report, its average daily active viewers of short dramatic films in April topped 210 million, an 8.0% increase in six months. Over 20 million users watch more than 10 episodes of the skits every day.

Although Douyin has not released any data on this, the number of daily active viewers of skits on Douyin is not lower than that of Kuaishou, according to industry speculation.
