The HFPA trolled Disney by nominating The Lion King remake as best animated movie



For a while now, there has been a debate whether the remake of The Lion King is "live-action" or animated, seeing that their are no humans on screen in the movie and all but one shot in the movie is real, with the other being CGI and animation.
Disney has so far refused to acknowledge the film as animated movie and has submitted it as live-action for the 2020.
However, this didn't stop the HFPA from nominating it as an animated movie, despite Disney not submitting the movie in that category.

Even after the nomination, Disney still refuses as evident from their celebration post for the movie get a Golden Globe nomination (notice how The Lion King poster doesn't mention the animated movie nomination but the Frozen 2 poster does).

Famous Poker Player Accused of Massive Cheating Scheme

ontd postle.png

Mike Postle, a poker player who shot to fame on the internet, has been accused of an elaborate cheating scheme.

The alleged cheating took place at a casino in Sacramento that would livestream some games on Twitch. Viewers noticed that Postle had a statistically impossible winning streak, earning more than $250,000 in 18 months at a low-stakes game. However, he did not excel at games that were not livestreamed.

When a commentator publicly accused him of cheating, the poker community turned on him.



A poker player named Joey Ingram made a meticulous five-hour live stream that exposed Postle's apparent cheating.

When the casino livestreamed games, it used cards made with technology that displayed them on viewers' computer screens, so anyone watching online could see each player's hand. Postle would allegedly wear technology in his hat and clothing to pick up on the vibrations of each card, so he could distinguish each player's hand.

The players who lost to him have filed lawsuits for $10 million. There is currently no criminal investigation.

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


The Dead Girls Club

Red Lady, Red Lady, show us your face...

In 1991, Heather Cole and her friends were members of the Dead Girls Club. Obsessed with the macabre, the girls exchanged stories about serial killers and imaginary monsters, like the Red Lady, the spirit of a vengeful witch killed centuries before. Heather knew the stories were just that, until her best friend Becca began insisting the Red Lady was real--and she could prove it.

That belief got Becca killed.

It's been nearly thirty years, but Heather has never told anyone what really happened that night--that Becca was right and the Red Lady was real. She's done her best to put that fateful summer, Becca, and the Red Lady, behind her. Until a familiar necklace arrives in the mail, a necklace Heather hasn't seen since the night Becca died.

The night Heather killed her.

Now, someone else knows what she did...and they're determined to make Heather pay.

Internet Famous Nobody Goes to Jail After Domain Robbery Gone Wrong


It's time for the latest entry in the Nobody of the Day series, featuring gunpoint attempted robbery of a domain name. If you don't know, a domain name is the readable address of a website so humans can remember it. Computers are talking in IP addresses, but we can't.

Anywho:

Rossi Lorathio Adams II built a large following by posting videos of drunk Iowa University students via the website doit4state.com (Not quite SFW)

He also wanted the domain doitforstate, and harassed the person who owned it until the person agreed to sell for 20k$ and Adams was unwilling to pay.

Instead of accepting his loss and moving on like a reasonable person, he got his homeless cousin to go to the owners' house and threaten him with a gun. The owner of the domain and home wrestled the gun away, and in the melee, shot the intruder several times in the chest.

Among the evidence on the scene was a handwritten note with instructions on how to transfer the name and the GoDaddy account number and personal email address of Adams to which the domain was to be transferred.

Adams and his lawyer maintain his innocence despite the above, basically saying "I wouldn't be that stupid to write the shit down", even though there are his prints on the paper.

Nevertheless, he has been sentence to 14 years in prison.

#IWantMyMTV: Marvel Television is Being Folded into Marvel Studios

Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb is leaving, and Marvel is leaving with it, folded into the main studio, after multiple live action shows have been cancelled or are on final seasons over various stations.

90% of staff have been layed off already.

I know what you're asking: WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier had already been placed under Fiege’s mandate before he was anointed Chief Creative Officer in October. So they're safe.

Any TV projects in production for D+ are going forward, new ideas are not.

She has candy in the pouch of her Christmas sweater. Plus it has pockets! It can be found at Zappos. You have to go pretty hard to destroy us, our country, too many people who fought too hard for too long. Celebrating the Constitution and our rights as Americans. Blah di blah.

Trump campaign compares Trump to Thanos; Thanos' creator (and others) respond


Trump's campaign tried to compare Trump as Thanos as a way of showing that his re-election is 'inevitable'.



Jim Starlin, who created Thanos, responded with the following statement: "After my initial feeling of being violated, seeing that pompous fool using my creation to stroke his infantile ego, it finally struck me that the leader of my country and the free world actually enjoys comparing himself to a mass murderer. How sick is that? These are sad and strange times we are going through. Fortunately all things, even national nightmares, eventually come to an end."
