Quotes of the Year

Zelenskyy quip, Trump conspiracy top 2022 notable quote list. 2022's most notable quotations include a tart retort by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to a U.S. offer of help. That's according to a list compiled each year by Yale Law School librarian Fred Shapiro as a supplement to The New Yale Book of Quotations. Zelenskyy had the No. 1 quote, “I need ammunition, not a ride,” responding to a U.S. offer to transport him to safety days after Russia invaded Ukraine. Former U.S. President Donald Trump was No. 2, for repeating his lies about the 2020 election being stolen and calling for the “termination” of parts of the Constitution.

Critics’ Conversation: The Great Film Performances of 2022

JON FROSCH Here we go again! One thing I’ve come to appreciate about the epic slog known as Awards Season is the opportunity to champion — and occasionally straight-up bully people into watching — things that are not “in the conversation.” So many performances seem almost algorithmically rigged to seduce the Academy (hammy, hair/makeup/accent-heavy portrayals of real people, like Jessica Chastain’s Oscar-winning take on Tammy Faye Messner last year). Consequently, the months leading up to the Academy Awards can feel like a trudge toward the inevitable. It’s frustrating to see less showy, more interesting turns languish in remote corners of the...

Fred Armisen Is Hosting a Competing Oscars (Video)

Fred Armisen is raising the stakes this awards season. The “Saturday Night Live” alum and on-again/off-again “Late Night” bandleader is hosting a competing Oscars, he told friend Seth Meyers on Monday night.

So I’m gonna have awards for, like, people who supply automobiles for movies.” And Fred is being bold with the scheduling, slating his rental car awards directly against the actual Oscars. He’s counting on Meyers to choose his counter-programming to the Academy Awards...
