Even after awards season, Moonlight’s bounty continues: The movie’s third act famously doesn’t end with a kiss, but its tender beach scene between Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome won Moonlight MTV’s Movie and TV Award for Best Kiss. “It is okay for us young performers, especially us minority performers, to step out of the box,” Jerome said while accepting the award onstage with Sanders. “This award is bigger than Jharrel and I,” Sanders said. “This represents more than a kiss.” Jerome and Sanders exchanged tweets about wanting to win the award after their nomination was announced, and director Barry Jenkins congratulated his stars on their deserved win: … [Read more...] about ’s Beach Scene Correctly Wins MTV’s Award for Best Kiss
Despite the growing importance of international content at Netflix, Bajaria is actually not a grizzled veteran of global production: She has only been in charge of non-English content since March 2019. She did, however, spend part of her first three years at Netflix identifying international series worth importing to the company’s U.S. service and finding U.S. shows which could work on Netflix outside of North America, such as Star Trek: Discovery.

The Great Gatsby (2013) After The Great Gatsby opened in May 2013, Vulture writer Kyle Buchanan paid special tribute to the film’s introduction of Jay Gatsby, saying, “It’s a scene that’s so over-the-top that it might have hit the moon, and when this magical moment happened onscreen, you had no choice but to laugh, cry, or applaud.” For the record, we laughed and applauded: It’s one of the great moments in recent movies in which a director (Baz Luhrmann) and his star (DiCaprio) are sharing one big, knowing chuckle with their audience. The whole film is wrapped up in that moment, and it’s why DiCaprio is so good in this remake, even though the movie itself is exhausting and misguided. As Gatsby, the unattainably impressive man of wealth and status, DiCaprio projects the kind of movie-star wattage we just don’t see much anymore, at the same time hinting at the romantic duress that renders all his achievements ultimately meaningless.
