Congrats to Hamilton native Vince Jolivette, a producer on the Golden Globe-nominated "The Disaster Artist."

"The Killing Of A Sacred Deer," filmed here in 2016 by Oscar-winning director Yorgos Lanthimos, didn't get any love from Hollywood Foreign Press Association Monday.

"Sacred Deer" was ignored by the 75th anniversary Golden Globe Award nominations released Monday – but star Nicole Kidman was nominated as a best actress in a limited series for HBO's "Big Little Lies."

Herb Reisenfeld of Provident Travel loves to say that his mother-in-law, singer Ruby Wright,  was responsible for Doris Day's career.

Before Wright became a regular on Ruth Lyons' "50-50 Club" TV show, she sang for her husband, bandleader Barney Rapp. When Ruby was pregnant with her daughter Susie, Rapp hired a local teenager singer named Doris Kappelhoff.

If “Carol” wins any Academy Awards, it would be a big upset after all the film awards ignoring  the Cate Blanchett-Rooney Mara movie this month.

Blanchett and Mara, who starred in the 1952 love story shot here in 2014, again were shut out at the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Saturday, as “Carol” was at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice awards.

Blanchett was up for best actress; Mara for supporting actress. “Carol” was not nominated for a SAG best picture award. The SAG winners were familiar faces from January’s award circuit:

Another night of Hollywood movie awards, another night of no awards for “Carol.”

“Carol” was shut out at the “21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards” Sunday, as it was the previous Sunday at the “Golden Globe Awards.”

It’s another bad sign for “Carol” at the Academy Awards on Feb. 28, when the film is nominated in six categories.

Most knew him as handyman Dwayne Schneider on “One Day At A Time,” but I first knew comedian/actor Pat Harrington Jr. as Guido Panzini from the old "Steve Allen Show."

Harrington died Wednesday in Los Angeles at age 86, says USA Today.

His best and longest role was “Schneider” on Norman Lear's “One Day At A Time” (1975-84) which earned him an Emmy Award and Golden Globe as best supporting actor.  He was such a favorite that Harrington’s “Schneider” was nominated as a best “Nosiest Neighbor” in the 2003 TV Land Awards.

There’s a new queen of the Queen City, and her name is “Carol.”

The Cate Blanchett-Rooney Mara film, shot here last year, lived up to all of its pre-Oscar buzz at a screening Saturday night at Clifton’s Esquire Theatre for the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission.

Reviewers have called the film “gorgeous,” ‘flawless” and an Oscar contender. And I agree.

Blanchett, just nominated for a Golden Globe best actress award, also should be nominated for an Oscar for her performance as unhappily married Carol Aird, who pursues New York department store clerk Therese Belivet (Mara) in 1952.

Mara, who won best actress for Belivet at the Cannes Film Festival last May, also received a Golden Globe nomination as best actress for “Carol,” for her sensitive portrayal of a confused young woman maturing after her affair with Aird.

The pre-Oscar buzz keeps growing for “Carol,” the Cate Blanchett-Rooney Mara film shot in Cincinnati last year.

“Carol” was nominated for five Golden Globe Awards Thursday morning: best actress for both Blanchett and Mara, best drama motion picture, best director for Todd Haynes and best original score.
