The Retro Hugos will be awarded on August 15, 2019, and the 2019 Hugos will be awarded on August 18, 2019, in sunny and balmy Dublin, Ireland. ;-) If you would like to vote on the finalists, I believe the only way you can do that is by being at least a supporting member to Dublin 2019/active member of the WSFS. In past years members have gotten (electronic?) copies of some of the nominated works, so it might be worth the 40 Euros, idk, especially if they cough up the best series nominees. And if I understand it correctly, you will be able to nominate works for the 2020 & 1945(?) Retro Hugo awards.

Feel free to make this a book/writing/art/music/audio/TV/movie post. Any glaring omissions, ONTD? This is for *sure* very English-language/US-heavy for an "international" award. Any non-English language/US fantasy and/or science fiction that tickled your fancy in 2018? In 2019? Something upcoming?

Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke have no chemistry.

- The article notes that of all the things worth criticizing about the show (and ONTD is very familiar with them), it's ultimately that extreme lack of chemistry between stars Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke that does the show in.

- A sampling: "If you’re babysitting for a friend, it’s fun to watch a five-year-old girl shoving a Barbie and Ken doll’s heads together to make them kiss. But that’s not exactly what one looks for, when watching a prestige drama."

- It can be assumed that Kit Harington's response to this critic's astute observation is "Go fuck yourself."

ONTD, do you believe these two have no chemistry, or is that neither of them can act so they can't even fake chemistry?

Disgraced and former GOP Rep. Aaron Schock attends Coachella, gets called out for anti-LGBTQ past

Aaron Schock, who repeatedly voted against LGBTQ rights, reportedly partied shirtless with gay friends at Coachella over the weekend. Since these photos have surfaced, the LGBTQ community and celebrities have started to call him out on social media.

Schock resigned from Congress in 2015 over the misuse of taxpayer funds. He was accused of using funds to redecorate his office to look Downton Abbey-esque and flew his staff on a private plane to a Katy Perry concert.

In 2017, he was indicted on 24 counts of wire fraud, mail fraud, theft of government funds, making false statements, filing false reports with federal election officials, and six counts of filing false tax returns. Last month, federal prosecutors dropped those charges against him in exchange for him to repay thousands of dollars.

One photo allegedly shows the 37-year-old making out with another man with his hand down his pants.

Schock has yet to publicly respond to the photos or the criticism.

Dario Argento doubles down on Suspiria dragging, 5 (3) folk horror recs


In January, Dario made it clear he was not feeling the Suspiria remake and said it didn't capture the spirit of the original film. In a new interview, he doubles down and praises other recent movies.

“To me, the remake of Suspiria doesn’t look like a well-realized project. It lacks fear, music, tension, and scenic creativity,” he told Interview Magazine. “Films like Get Out and Hereditary have struck me for their beautiful photography, their plot, and their production."

No word if the director is crying in a chair like a certain other director.

Speaking of Hereditary, Ari Aster's next project (Midsommar) is a folk horror coming out this summer. To get yourself ready, here's a list of folk horror movies to check out.

Prosecutors will release video of Robert Kraft receiving sexual services at a Florida day spa

Prosecutors intend to release video that is expected to show Robert Kraft receiving sexual services at a Florida day spa,
The New England Patriots owner's legal team filed an emergency motion aiming to block the release.
Releasing the video would violate their client's constitutional rights and hamper his chance for a fair trial.

They will "pixelate or blur depictions of obscene or pornographic images before releasing such records to the public,"

The media coalition's attorneys argued that the public has a right to see the video and that Kraft does not enjoy the right to privacy as a defendant in a criminal case.

Shyamalan told the NYU’s Stern School of Business:

“I was in London when I heard the U.S. reviews for ‘Glass’ were poor. I was in a makeup chair for a TV show, and I cried.”

He shared: “We’d just come back from the London screenings, which were through the roof. We had only great screenings of the movie around the world. So essentially I wasn’t prepared. I had this false sense of being a part of the group in a safe way. But boy, did I feel distraught that day.”
