My predictions for the 89th Academy Awards
By: Steve Pulaski
February is the best month of the year for television, with two of the most exciting primetime events happening just a couple weeks apart: the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards. I always take pride in sharing my thoughts on the nominees for the Academy Awards, praising the films many overlooked or ranting about the ones that were forgotten, including the dedicated men and women behind them.

“What kind of idiots were we then?,” asks Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers in his videotaped introduction of the 25th anniversary showing of Wayne’s World. “And what kind of idiots are we now?”
The iconic 1992 comedy Wayne’s World is now a quarter of a century old, yet Travers affirms, as does the film’s legion of loyal fans, that the film is indeed a snapshot of its culture. Starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, the light-hearted comedy focuses on Wayne and Garth, two energetic youths that run a cable access program out of their parents’ basement. The two wind up hitting big-time exposure with a lofty contract from a manipulative TV mogul (Rob Lowe), who plans to milk the show for enormous sponsor money.

Will Tom Brady lead New England to their fifth win, or will Atlanta win its first championship in team history? We’ll find out very soon.

WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS OF ARTISTS AND SONGS PERFORMED.
The fourth episode of ABC’s summer series, Greatest Hits, aired on Thursday, July 21. This time, music from 1990 to 1995 was featured. The show seemed to give us only a sampling of the music of the early 90s. With many genres popping up during this time, this episode seemed to graze over a majority of them.
