Ahead of Sunday’s 93rd Academy Awards, Associated Press Film Writers Jake Coyle and Lindsey Bahr share their predictions for a ceremony that is forging on in the midst of the pandemic. BEST PICTURE The Nominees: “The Father” “Judas and the Black Messiah” “Mank” “Minari” “Nomadland” “Promising Young Woman” “Sound of Metal” “The Trial of the Chicago 7” COYLE: A contemplative character study made for $5 million and populated by non-professional actors, Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland” is not your typical Oscar heavyweight. And yet it’s overwhelming the favorite, a roundly acclaimed movie from an exciting auteur that has already ruled at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and, most crucially, the producers and directors’ guilds. The weirdness of this unending pandemic awards season adds a drop of uncertainty to everything. But as much as I’d like to see “Sound of Metal,”“Promising Young Woman” or “Minari” sneak in for an upset, “Nomadland” is a near-lock, and an eminently … [Read more...] about Oscars 2021 predictions: Who will win in every major category at this year’s Academy Awards?
April 2021 proved to be the 16th consecutive month of record National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks for firearm sales and transfers. FBI figures show that 3,514,070 checks were performed in April, which is more than any other April in history. The previous record for the month of April, set in April 2020, was 2,911,128 checks. Breitbart News noted March 2021 was the 15th consecutive month of record-breaking NICS checks, continuing a record-breaking streak that began in January 2020. NICS checks are not a precise measurement for the number of gun sales taking place, as the checks are conducted on the would-be purchaser, rather than the gun itself. Moreover, an individual can buy more than one gun at retail once he or she has passed the background check. (That latter point means the number of NICS checks could be lower than the number of guns sold.) Some states also regularly perform background checks on concealed carry permit holders, as a way of … [Read more...] about April 2021 the 16th Consecutive Month of Record Firearm Background Checks

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Bruce Springsteen has won the 2021 Woody Guthrie Prize, which is given to an artist seen as carrying on the spirit of the folk singer whose music focused on the plight of the poor and disenfranchised. Guthrie, who grew up in Okemah, Oklahoma, was one of the most important figures in American folk music and penned hundreds of songs, including some that The Boss has performed over the years.

The New Jersey rocker called Guthrie, who died in 1967 at age 55, “one of my most important influences.” Springsteen and previous prize recipient Pete Seeger performed Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” at Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential inauguration.
