Universal Pics reveals their awards submissions, including 'First Man', 'Green Book', more

A bit of a follow up to my previous awards season post this morning, but Universal Pictures updated their FYC (for your consideration) website and currently has 'First Man', 'The Grinch', and 'Green Book' listed as their big contenders.

-- 'First Man' is a critical hit but a colossal box office bomb, and that will hurt its chances for big wins come Oscars time. Anyway, Universal's putting the movie up for all major categories: director and producer for Damien Chazelle, best picture, actor (Ryan Gosling), supporting actress (Claire Foy), supporting actors (Jason Clarke lmao, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll), screenplay and a fuckload of tech/crafts awards.

-- 'Green Book', which already premiered at TIFF to great praise (and won the People's Choice there) will of course be submitted for actor (Viggo Mortensen) and supporting actor (Mahershala Ali), as well as picture, director (Peter Farrelly - yes, that one), supporting actress (Linda Cardellini), original screenplay co-written by Farrelly, and various tech/crafts categories.

-- I left 'The Grinch' for last because Universal's out of their collection fucking minds as they're submitting lead voice Benedict Cumberbatch for actor (yes, yes they are). Like, if Andy Serkis never got recognized, y'all think Ben will???? It's also being submitted for best animated feature, director, best Original Song by Tyler, The Creator, and more tech/crafts categories.

XXXTentacion confessed to domestic abuse and stabbing 9 people in secret recording

A recording of XXXTentacion talking to his friends about abusing his girlfriend has surfaced.

He talked about how he "started fucking her up because she made one mistake" and then the cycle started.

XXXTentacion said she was scared for her life because she knew what he was capable of after he stabbed eight (he notes that the local newspaper mistakenly reported the number as three) people in early 2016.

He talked about how she saw him come back with no tears, no remorse, and a new computer after he stabbed his former manager in a separate incident.

XXXTentacion's domestic violence case was closed earlier this year because he died.
