    Back of the Nokia 3310 : why this phone is so mythical?

    The commercialization of a new version of the famous phone, released in 2000, was announced on 26 February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. A version that did not convince. For a month now, everybody had been talking about his possible re-edition. On Twitter, we were waiting, not without impatience, for the “legendary”, “mythical”, […] More

    Oscars 2017: Who will win, should win, Academy Awards

    Admitted, it can be fun to watch the show, with its red-carpet triumphs and tragedies, its genuine surprises and why-won’t-she-shut-up speeches. The Academy Awards are a tradition, a trial and occasionally a treat. But unless you’re a nominee, is anything that happens at the show really going to change your life? Well, maybe just a bit. Oscar […] More

  • Viola Davis

    Davis already has two Tony awards and an Emmy, so she needs an Oscar statue to fill out her collection and become the first black person to win what’s considered the Triple Crown of acting. Only 22 people have ever achieved the feat. That could happen Sunday night as she’s nominated for Best Supporting Actress […] More

  • Octavia Spencer

    Here’s a crazy stat: No black woman who’s ever won an Academy Award has never been nominated for another. Spencer’s nomination broke that streak, so she’d be the first-ever black woman to win multiple Oscars if she snags a statue Sunday night. In 2012, she won Best Supporting Actress for The Help. She’s up for […] More

  • Kimberly Steward

    Steward either has beginners’ luck or the golden touch or some amalgamation of the two. Manchester by the Sea, a tearjerker about a handyman’s homecoming following his brother’s death, was the first scripted film Steward ever produced, and it’s earned her a nod for Best Picture. She and Oprah Winfrey are the only two black […] More

  • Joi McMillon

    After more than 10 years of being the No. 2 on editing teams, McMillon became lead editor on Moonlight, a coming-of-age tale of a young African-American man confronting his sexuality in Miami. She certainly made the most of the opportunity, earning a nomination for Film Editing. She’s the first black woman to ever receive the […] More

  • Ai-Ling Lee

    This year’s frontrunner La La Land, a film about two aspiring entertainers enduring the ups and downs of show business, could break Oscars’ record for most wins as it competes in 14 categories, but sound editor Ai-Ling Lee is hoping to make some history of her own. Her work on La La Land earned her […] More

  • Meryl Streep

    President Donald Trump may think Meryl Streep is an overrated actor, but the Academy has pointed to her, time and again, as one of the industry’s best. If Streep wins the Best Actress award for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins she will tie the legendary Katharine Hepburn for the most acting awards at four. […] More

  • Ava DuVernay

    87th Annual Academy Awards - Red Carpet

    DuVernay was famously skipped over for her work on the Martin Luther King, Jr., biopic Selma in 2015, when the Academy failed her nominate her for Best Director. Her snub and others fueled the #OscarsSoWhite campaign, which deplored the failure of any minority actor to garner a nod in all four major performance categories. This […] More
