Are you a Dork? A Geek? A Nerd? Or all of the above?
Every week, I’ll be rolling out a new podcast with 30 questions on a Geeky topic. Not-so-surprisingly, Episode One is all about Star Trek: The Original Series. Think of it as an in-home game show to play by yourself or with your friends.

The 2018 Academy Awards nominees are out and, for the first time ever, a superhero movie has made it into the Best Picture Category. Black Panther probably won’t win, but it’s a nice nod to the genre that has certainly matured in the last decade.
What films are pleased to see on the list? Which one are you not? And which films do you think got snubbed?

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse nabbed the biggest December opening for an animated film, netting $35 million. Mortal Engines, from Peter Jackson, only managed $7 million (on a $100 Million budget).

It’s not exactly “news” anymore, but I thought I’d throw it out there. Just in case there was any discussion/conjecture/wild speculation to be had out there.

This was the first year with new voting rules meant to break up the voting slates that have plagued the awards for the past few years.
Full list of winners follow.

Variety has more details, but the short version is that the film rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and their related characters now go to Disney (who owns Marvel comics). The price tag? Just $71.3 Billion. No big deal.
Let the wild speculation begin! Doctor Doom as the next “Big Bad?” Magneto? Galactus?
Personally, I’m just holding out for a Firefly/Serenity ride at Disneyland (“Oh God, oh God, We’re All Gonna Die: The Ride”). Fingers crossed.

Not an award we usually get to cover here at the Bureau, but it proved to be a good year for genre plays. Well, one in particular, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
The play, a sequel to the original seven books that follows young Albus Potter’s adventures at Hogwarts, won six Tony Awards including Best Play and Best Direction of a Play.
You can see the full results of the award ceremony here.
