Does Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ decision to push over the presentation of four Oscar trophies during the commercial break hold any merit? The numbers speak otherwise. In such a case, can viewership steal an artist's limelight, and in doing so, are the Academy’s priorities straightened out?

Unmissable is also Priyanka Chopra’s appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she is on a play date with her pal Fallon. On the other hand, Marvel stars continue to play with fans’ sentiments by dropping strange hints, before Avengers: Endgame releases. Samuel L Jackson is the latest one to bank on the speculative fan-theory market that the film franchise has kicked off.
