i didnt. not until '83 anyway :thumbsup

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 01:00 AM)

Yeah, that was a hard one to take. So many nerds from '77 on must've grown up having a crush on her

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:34 AM)

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

They always save the saddest deaths for last in the "in memoriam" sequence.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:30 AM)

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

I remember him from the old days on Breaker High airing on YTV

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Also, Ryan Gosling. Ugh, go #### yourself Ryan Gosling, with your perfect bone structure

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:26 AM)

Since there's way more nominees than winners in every category that's not exactly unusual.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:25 AM)

Even then, I think it lost more nominations than it won.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:24 AM)

I think the reason La La Land won so many awards is because it was basically Hollywood stroking its own ego

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Kinda glad. I like Emma Stone, but for whatever reason I can't stand that movie. I'm surprised it didn't win though, as it was typical Oscar bait

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

This is just goddamn surreal.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

Holy shit. It had the second-most nominations of any movie, and La La Land just lost Best Picture.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:11 AM)

"Look where I've been, I make everything happen! Look at that mean Mini Maui just tikkity tappin'! Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HEY!"

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Yeah, same. "You're Welcome" is honestly the best song in the movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:06 AM)

I liked the Moana song, though personally I enjoyed You're Welcome a little bit more because of the humor.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

Ah, well. As much as him not getting an Oscar hurts, Lin-Manuel has a shitload of awards already, so missing out on one isn't too bad. The guy managed to hit the jackpot with the Tonys for Hamilton and win a Grammy for it and get an Emmy... Somewhere. Don't know where he got the Emmy.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:02 AM)

@NVK: I realize that, but I still don't like that a terrible Zak Snyder film managed to even get an award.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Look, I can understand The Force Awakens not getting a single award. Hell, I can even understand why Transformers lost to The Golden Compass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

But Moana and Suicide Squad weren't nominated for the same things.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 11:47 PM)

We officially live in a world where a film involving Zak Snyder is apparently more deserving of an award than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 February 2017 - 10:58 PM)

I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

@  Echowarrior : (26 February 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Our Hydra is better than Marvel's Hydra. Just saying.

I remember watching Doug all the time as a kid, but I watch it now and I don't at all see the appeal. *shrug* On the plus side, it added the word "nematode" to my vocabulary.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

New Justice League cartoon coming where James Woods plays Lex Luthor

Also some guys called Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are playing Batman and Joker but that's less important.

 

http://www.comicbook...cartoon-network

 

After months of reports and speculation, Cartoon Network has officially announced its new Justice League animated series. Titled "Justice League Action," the show, like the network's fellow DC Comics-based series "Teen Titans Go!," will run in installments of 11-minute episodes. Notably, the show features the return of both Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman and Mark Hamill as the voice of The Joker, roles they made famous in '90s classic "Batman: The Animated Series."

Here's the official description of the series, which doesn't yet have a premiere date:

    "Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman lead the DC Comics Super Heroes against their most infamous foes in adventures packed with relentless thrills, fun and action. No need to wait for the good stuff to start, each eleven-minute episode jumps in with lightning-paced action and heroics. Whether defending the Earth, facing invaders from space, or battling the bizarre forces of magic, the always-rotating team of Justice League heroes, are up to any challenge.


James Woods as Lex Luthor and Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold are also announced for the voice cast. Both have prior experience with DC characters; Woods voiced Owlman in 2010's "Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths" feature, and Bader starred as Batman for three seasons of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold."

The announcement is accompanied by the first poster for the series, featuring the latest animated takes on DC icons Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman -- who all appear in March's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" live-action film -- along with black-and-white sketches of Hawkman, Green Arrow, Zatanna, Shazam, The Flash, Blue Beetle, Plastic Man and more in the background; plus a logo clearly inspired by the team's classic comics.

There's been rumblings online of a new Justice League cartoon from Cartoon Network since last year, including a photo surfacing on Reddit showing early promotional art, but today's news marks the first official announcement. A prior "Justice League" series ran on Cartoon Network from 2001 to 2004.

Warner Bros. Animation President Sam Register is executive producer of "Justice League Action," with DC-based animation vets Butch Lukic, Alan Burnett and Jim Krieg all on board as producers.

I dunno, I'm getting the feeling this show might be more along the lines of The Brave and the Bold than Teen Titans Go.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Comic book shows aimed at young kids are one of the only hopes the industry/genre/characters have of snagging the next generation and making new fans.

The big two aren't publishing near enough kid aimed comics nor have they found a real way to make modern kids care about the few they are making.

The best thing they could do for themselves is aim this show squarely at the Teen Titans Go audience.

-ZacWilliam, and pray it's half as big a hit with them.

I have a hard time getting invested in any DC animated TV productions. They'll find out there's a girl watching it and burn down the studio before they can get cooties.

With comic characters increasingly making waves in other media I don't even think it's necessary to publish books targeting them. Since I was a child I adored Batman. Know what drove that? Repeats of the Adam West show, the hype for the first Burton movie and the launch of BTAS.

It was years before I even had access to Batman comic books. A lot of these characters are modern myths and so long as they're represented in some form people will dig deeper.

I just really hope it's representation that's a whole lot better than the crap called TTG!

They just released a series of 15 DC Super Friends shorts (they tell an ongoing story in chapters) - considering the 11 minute runtime, I suspect this will be much the same and comedy-oriented.

I had hoped for a proper 23-minute series which is less Teen Titans Go and more Beware the Batman, but I guess we can wait and see.

The art style certainly makes me think this will be more light-hearted in nature.

Are ya kidding? In the early BTAS episodes Bruce was making jokes all the time. He at least has a dry wit in the later seasons.

He'll do fine.
