  1. Little People: Struggling to Survive ‘Annie’ and the ...

    Wesley Morris

  2. The Birdcage

    Mark Harris

    I did not begin 2014 by imagining that the most resonant movie moment of the 12 months to come would be a quiet, resigned stare-down in a bathroom. But it has been that kind of year. Alejandro G. Inarritu's B...

    Wesley Morris

    What a word, "decline." It's directional: downward. It's deferential: no, thank you. It connotes judgment, disappointment, and death. Movies can be about decline or symptomatic of it. Paul Thomas Ander...

  4. How Hard Is It for a Defensive Player to Win NFL MVP? Just Ask Th...

    Robert Mays

    By now, we've heard every side of the "J.J. Watt for MVP" debate. It's a lot of talk about the meaning of "most valuable" compared to "best" and whether the award is unfairly slanted toward quarterbacks &am...

    Wesley Morris

    It's said that the quality films are saved for the end of the year - the "serious," "adult," "issue" movies; the musicals, the statements, the Eastwoods. The stu...

    Holly Anderson

    College football serves and is served by many gods, old and new. Here, week after week, we'll build a temple to them, installing saints and erecting graven idols as we go. The temple is made of words and pictures from the Internet....

  9. The NFL Three-Quarters Award Winners

    Bill Barnwell

    We've made it three-quarters of the way through the NFL season, so that means one thing: It's time to catch up on the various award races. Every quarter, I run through the regular-season trophies to get a gauge on how perceptions are changi...

    Wesley Morris

    Setting aside some profanity and half a dozen conversations about being gay, The Imitation Game could have been released without much trouble in 1951, the year in which a lot of the story is set. It actually might have been more enjoyable as an old m...

    Monday marked the start of a new phase of the 2014 awards season: one that involves the actual giving of awards instead of mere speculation and prognostication. Let's state right up front that the New York Film Critics Circle, whic...

    Mark Lisanti

    The Walking Dead went into its winter hiatus not with a whimper, but with a bang. A gut-wrenching, Beth-eradicating bang that mercilessly hit pause on this resurgent fifth year at its most powerful and unexpected moment. But as we all process that su...

    Wesley Morris

    The color is drained out of Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher. The sparely used score sounds notes of dread. Steve Carell, wearing a beak of a nose and speaking with a deliberate, nasal drone, goes from scene to scene like a vampire in his 15,000...

    Sean Fennessey

    On Sunday night at the American Music Awards, Iggy Azalea struck an uncommon pose: a towering white woman onstage thanking a diminutive black man who believed in her, had given her an opportunity, and provided her the credibility to penetrate an unfo...

    Sean McIndoe

    We've reached the quarter pole in the NHL season, which means two things: It's too early to start drawing conclusions and throwing around awards, and we're going to go ahead and do those things anyway....
