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?

Speaking of priority, women are women’s top priority, especially if you take a look at these new-age actresses and filmmakers and their script choices. From Anushkha Sharma launching her own production house called Clean Slate Films to Deepika Padukone turning producer with her upcoming film Chhapaak, Bollywood ladies are either increasingly taking up women-centric films or infusing money in such innovative projects.

Among innovative projects, Period. End of Sentence, a short documentary film about taboos surrounding menstruation is in focus this week. The Oscar-nominated film has released on Netflix and is a must-watch. 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.

Read on for more insight into the world of entertainment and lifestyle.
