If you were online at all on Thursday it was virtually impossible not to see a headline reporting on the 2013 Academy Award nominations. If you did happen to miss them, you can see all the nominees and get more information than you would ever need about every actor and film with the only offici...

The iPad wasn't the only consumer electronics device ad in heavy rotation during the Academy Awards, you could barely get through a commercial break without seeing Samsung's spot for its new 3DTVs. We figure a direct Avatar tie-in (or to any specific movie at all like Monsters vs. Aliens) might hav...

It looks like Apple wants in on some of the red carpet glory as well (how is that for a segue?). They have set up a speci...

So our usual sources are indicating that the 78th Annual Academy Awards are not in HDTV, but several of you are indicating that they are. What gives? We typically check TitanTV and even double-check on the network's own website; at this point, we don't see the show in high-def, but we're hoping tha...

If you're anything like me, you didn't get a chance to see every movie that was nominated for an Academy Award. Luckily, Apple has posted trailers for all the nominated movies (there might be one or two that is missing, but it seems darn comprehensive to me). Not only are there links to trailers (Q...
