Chicago Cubs: Five Bold Predictions For The 2017 MLB Season

27 February, by Evan Massey[ —]

Bold predictions for the Cubs in 2017.

The Chicago Cubs are still fresh off of winning their first World Series in 108 years last season. It was an amazing comeback from a 3-1 series deficit against the Cleveland Indians and it made the Cubs’ fan base believe in their teams chances once again. Heading into the 2017 MLB season, there are high expectations.

Joe Maddon and the Cubs are widely viewed as favorites to win their second championship in a row. It won’t be easy, but they certainly have put together the roster to compete for that opportunity.

Needless to say, Wrigley Field is going to be packed all season long. Chicago has not been this excited for Cubs baseball in years. Whether the Cubs end up repeating as champions or not, they should have yet another huge season and should see their young players show improvement from last season.

A La La Land producer reveals Moonlight actually won best picture at the Academy Awards

The Academy Awards ended in mass confusion Sunday after it appeared that La La Land had won best picture, with the producers giving their speeches… Until Moonlight grabbed the gold.

Blanca Blanco wardrobe malfunction at the Oscars

She’s not one of the nominated or even among Hollywood’s A-listers but she achieved her goal for the night to make a name for her own. Going to the Oscars 2017 underwear-free, Blanca revealed much more than she bargained for. Wearing an extremely high slit right at her “area”, chances are big for a wardrobe malfunction.

Blanca establishes name in industry as the woman who showed too much

Who is she? You’re not the only one who has never heard of the actress’ name before. Blanca Blanco has starred in films like Beverly Hills Christmas and Teen Star Academy. Although she has no nominations for films she has starred at but she made sure that everyone knows her name before the night ends.

Dallas Cowboys: Five Potential 2017 NFL Free Agency Targets

27 February, by Evan Massey[ —]

Dallas Cowboys potential free agency targets.

Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys were just a move or two away from a Super Bowl victory last season and are hoping to take the next step in 2017. After losing in heartbreaking fashion to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs, the Cowboys will look to make some moves in free agency.

Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott took the NFL by storm in 2016. Dallas has the majority of their offense figured out moving forward, although improving around those two young talents would be wise as well.

On the defensive side of the football, the Cowboys showed major improvement this past season. They still have holes, especially when it comes to putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Dallas will likely spend the majority of their offseason money on defense, which gives them quite a few options to look at.

Viola Davis Wins Oscar, Steals The Show, Is ‘Nominated For An Emmy’ For Speech

27 February, by Norman Byrd[ —]

Viola Davis wins her first Oscar

Third time was the charm for award-winning actress Viola Davis Sunday evening at the 89th Academy Awards as she took home the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the drama Fences. It was noteworthy in many respects, including the fact that Davis became the first black actress to win an Oscar, an Emmy, and a Tony for her acting. But in addition to that distinction, her acceptance speech stole the show, mesmerizing her peers (and undoubtedly the viewers around the world) with such heartfelt passion that Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked afterward that she was just nominated for an Emmy.

Joke or no, the speech was worthy of an Emmy nod.

As Huffington Post Maddie Crum noted, the Oscar win was expected, but watching Viola Davis win it might have been the most satisfying. Not just for Davis herself, for it was her third well-deserved Oscar nomination, but also for all who experienced her Oscar acceptance speech.

2017 Oscars Screw-Up: Warren Beatty Reads Wrong Film For Best Picture

27 February, by Danny Cox[ —]

warren beatty oscars 2017 la la land moonlight wrong best picture

In what can only be seen as the biggest screw-up in entertainment since Steve Harvey read the wrong name as the winner for the Miss Universe Pageant 2015, it also happened at the Oscars. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway came out on stage to read the nominees and then, the winner for the Academy Award for Best Picture. When they announced La La Land as the winner, the crowd went wild. The only problem is that they were wrong.

Yes, it wasn’t La La Land which won the Oscar for Best Picture, but it ended up being Moonlight, and the official card proved it.

How many Oscars did La La Land win? most ever Academy Awards record

How many Oscars did La La Land win? After the weeks of Academy Awards buzz, the Best Picture favorite won a total of six statues. Here are all the statues it took home, even though it did come in shy of breaking the record for the most ever victories on mainstream Hollywood’s biggest prize night.

  • Best Actress — Emma Stone
  • Best Director — Damien Chazelle
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Original Score
  • Best Production Design

It was, of course, a surprise that the film did not take home Best Picture. So much so, that actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway accidentally got the whole cast and crew of La La Land up on the stage before realizing that he had read the card incorrectly. The prize instead went to Moonlight, making it the only most-ever Academy Awards nominations movie to lose out on the top prize.

VP Mike Pence Tweets Wrong Flag When Pledging Commitment To Jews And Israel

27 February, by Amy Feinstein[ —]

Prominent Republicans Address The Republican Jewish Coalition Spring Meeting

Between his trip to the St. Louis Jewish cemetery that was damaged by anti-Semitic vandalism, and his speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition meeting, Vice President Mike Pence is trying his best to prove that the Jewish community has the support of the Trump administration. Trump, and certain members of his cabinet, have been called out for not mentioning the loss of Jewish life when talking about the Holocaust, so Mike Pence has been sent out on an apology tour, which instead became a bit of a face-palm when he used the Nicaraguan flag rather than the Israeli flag when he pledged his and Trump’s support for Israel and the Jewish people.
