Academy Sci-Tech Awards Go to DreamWorks, Industrial Light & Magic, Pixar
The Academy’s 90th Sci-Tech Awards Saturday at the Beverly Wilshire (hosted by Sir Patrick Stewart) was dominated by the integral animation and visual effects software that powers the industry’s CG characters, simulations, and compositing. Digital Domain, DreamWorks, Industrial Light & Magic, Pixar, and Rhythm & Hues were among the 10 standout honorees.

In addition, visual effects technologist Jonathan Erland received the Gordon E. Sawyer Award (an Oscar statuette) for his technological contributions. Erland worked at Ilm as a model builder for “Star Wars” in 1977 and later moved over to Apogee to work on “Star Trek: The Motion Picture.” He eventually became director of R&D for Apogee, where he received patents for a reverse blue-screen traveling matte process, the Blue-Max flux projector, and a method for making front projection screens.

Erland also played a key role in establishing a separate visual effects Academy branch in 1995. He received the Academy’s John A.

Sir Patrick Stewart Can’t Answer Your ‘Star Trek’ Technology Questions

Sir Patrick Stewart Can’t Answer Your ‘Star Trek’ Technology Questions
Who knew that Sir Patrick Stewart could make even an awards ceremony autocue sound like the work of a great playwright.

Stewart acted as the master of ceremonies at the The Academy’s annual Scientific and Technical Awards which took place at the swanky Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills last night, and kicked off the evening by suggesting that he might have had to fight off another legendary British actor for the gig.

“Word has been circulating, I know, that Helen Mirren might be taking my place,” the “Logan” star joked. “Sorry, folks!”

One would have thought that Stewart’s previous experience aboard the Starship Enterprise during his adventurous “Star Trek” days might put him in good stead in a room full of “geeks and nerds,” but the actor confessed, after a surf and turf dinner of beef tenderloin and chilean sea bass, that he might not be au fait with some of the finer points of galactic

2018 Oscars: Sci-Tech Academy Awards on Feb. 10 hosted by Patrick Stewart
Patrick Stewart hosts the 2018 Scientific and Technical Academy Awards on Saturday, February 10. In a jam-packed evening at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, the knighted actor will preside over the presentation of 10 awards to 34 individuals and one organization.

Unlike the competitive Oscars that take place on March 4, these awards recognize achievements that need not have been introduced in 2017. Rather, they honor those people and processes that have contributed significant value to the process of making movies. Portions of event will be included in the Academy Awards telecast on ABC to be hosted for the second year running by Jimmy Kimmel.

‘The X-Files’ Review: ‘Kitten’ Plays With ‘Full Metal Jacket’ Tropes But Fails to Shock or Scare

‘The X-Files’ Review: ‘Kitten’ Plays With ‘Full Metal Jacket’ Tropes But Fails to Shock or Scare
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The X-Files,” Season 11, Episode 6, “Kitten.”]

Previously, on “The X-Files”…

When FBI agents Mulder and Scully investigate weird crimes for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, they report to their boss Assistant Director Walter Skinner — who’s been yelling at them since the first season 1994. Sometimes they trust Skinner, sometimes they don’t — right now, in Season 11 2018, they’re feeling pretty skittish towards him because he’s been acting weird. (In fairness, that might be because Cigarette-Smoking Man unloaded the father of all secrets on Skinner during the season premiere.) And really, in the long run, they just don’t know all that much about the guy.

This Week’s Dossier

We start in Vietnam 1969, a scene that does what Steven Spielberg couldn’t and resists the temptation to sample Creedence Clearwater Revival. There, a young Skinner and his terrified war buddy Kitten (Haley Joel Osment) are tasked with taking care of a mysterious crate.

Sir Patrick Stewart to host academy’s Sci-Tech Awards — the first solo male host in 22 years
Sir Patrick Stewart will host the academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards on Saturday, Feb. 10, the academy has announced. The ceremony will take place at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, honoring new improvements and milestones in filmmaking.

Stewart will be the first solo male host of the Sci-Tech Awards since Richard Dreyfuss emceed the 68th ceremony in 1996. Since then, the academy tapped solo female hosts, like Helen Hunt (1997), Charlize Theron (2002) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (2007), before switching to a female-and-male duo in 2013. The past five Sci-Tech hosts have been Zoe Saldana and Chris Pine (2013), Kristen Bell and Michael B. Jordan (2014), Margot Robbie and Miles Teller (2015), Olivia Munn and Jason Segel (2016), and Leslie Mann and John Cho (2017).

Emoji Movie Is the Reason Jordan Peele Quit Acting

Emoji Movie Is the Reason Jordan Peele Quit Acting
Get Out is a huge success and many believe that the accolades alone were behind Jordan Peele's decision to step out from in front of the camera and direct fulltime. As it turns out, The Emoji Movie was one of the bigger deciding factors for his reason to quit acting. Many fans of Key and Peele were upset to learn that Peele was going to retire as a thespian, but they still carry hopes that the director will change his mind at some point in the near future.

Jordan Peele's decision to stop acting has been pretty big news in the entertainment industry, but the call makes sense since he was just nominated for an Academy Award and many other awards for his directorial debut Get Out. While accepting a Director's Guild Award for first-time directing, Peele revealed that the Emoji Movie was one of the major reasons for him quitting acting.

Jordan Peele says he quit acting because of The Emoji Movie

Last month, comedian-turned-actor-turned director Jordan Peele announced that he was quitting acting, preferring instead to focus on his career behind the camera after enjoying huge critical success with his feature directorial debut Get Out.

Attending the Directors Guild of America Awards this past weekend, where he was honoured with the First Time Feature Award for Get Out, Peele explained one of the reasons why he decided to call time on acting: The Emoji Movie.

“I was offered the role of Poop – this is true. I would not make this up. I was offered the role of Poop; I was like, ‘That’s fucked up.’ I told my manager, ‘That’s fucked up, let me sleep on it.’ I came back the next day, I said, ‘Well, what are they offering?’ And they said, ‘Oh, well they’ve already given it to Sir Patrick Stewart.’ I was like, ‘Fuck this’… That’s a true story.

Jordan Peele Quit Acting Because He Was Offered the Role of S—t in ‘The Emoji Movie’
The one downside to Jordan Peele being so successful as a filmmaker is that he says he’s done with acting. The “Get Out” writer/director, who received three Academy Award nominations for his debut feature, won a different prize last night: best first-time director at the DGA Awards. While accepting this honor, Peele revealed what went into his decision: “‘The Emoji Movie’ actually helped me quit acting. I was offered the role of Poop,” he explained.

“This is true. I would not make this up,” he continued. Peele’s response to the offer was to say “that’s fucked up” before deciding to sleep on it for a night. He called his manager the following day to ask how much he was being offered for his emoji-related services, but by then it was too late:

William Shatner Is Open To Appearing In Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Film

If Quentin Tarantino has a good script for his Star Trek film, then William Shatner will be a part of it. The actor shared the news with the world on Twitter, which Heroic Hollywood happened to see and report on:

Depends on the script but if it was good then absolutely. Why not? https://t.co/qaf9Bolg21

— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) January 24, 2018

Is there anyone who guessed Shatner wouldn't say this? I mean, minus the fact that he kind of shit on Leonard Nimoy reprising Spock in the newer films, Shatner is always up for anything that will have him. Sometimes I think he just says what he thinks the people who like him want to hear, and I'll be honest, he's rubbed me the wrong way with some of the things I've read about him regarding the final years of Leonard Nimoy.

I guess what I'm trying to say
