World Wrestling Entertainment

The absence of professional sports in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak has left a pretty sizeable void in the world. An unassuming beneficiary of those shutdowns has been World Wrestling Entertainment. Despite performing in front of empty arenas, they and their competitors are the one mass live entertainment enterprise still producing new live content. Any WWE fan and even casual observers can tell you that the entire wrestling calendar revolves around Wrestlemania. The annual April mega show is not just a WWE showcase.

Yes movie fans, the day has come once again. The nominations for 92nd Annual Academy Awards have been announced and, as always, there’s equal parts joy and anger to go around. I don’t think there’s quite anything in the movie world that inspires so much happiness and head-scratching at the exact same time as the yearly Oscar nominations. Per usual, there’s plenty of snubs and surprises to catalog.

The 2020 movie awards season has officially kicked off with the 77th Golden Globe Awards that took place last night in Hollywood, California. In many ways it’s been a truly whirlwind year in the world of movies. Record-breaking box office numbers have often given way to a thinking of diminishing returns when it comes to mid-budget studio fare. The emergence of streaming giant Netflix from cute upstart to legitimate leading studio in the Awards season has similarly led to a shifting window of what the movie industry is currently soon to be turning into.

FRN's Best Movies of 2019

Dec 31, 2019

2019 is officially in the books and in many ways the year in movies was as eclectic, chaotic and satisfying as everything else we encountered in 2019. We had a brand new all-time box office champion, a record-setting year for Disney as a studio that is unlikely to ever be challenged, the emergence of Awards front-runners on streaming services and one of the truly most baffling films in recent memory (Cats). As such here on the Front Row Network we put the task out to our writers to come up with the best films of the year in given categories.
