We could make a bunch of predictions about who will win what during this Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, but we made a drinking game instead. So grab a 12-pack and tune into NBC at 8 p.m. Hope you don’t have an early class Monday.
The Avenue | Movies And Tv
With a new year comes a new beginning to the independent film scene in Gainesville. This week, the Avenue caught up with Jason McNeal, a film lover and movie buff who has been on the hunt for great, contemporary indie films to show in the area. “$5 Films,” as he calls it, will take place at the Wooly in the heart of downtown, located next to the Top.

The latest season in the disturbing anthology “American Horror Story” has all the elements of a successful Disney Channel original movie or cult CW series. “Coven” has young adults, an evocative boarding school, magic and a sense of danger.

Is it just me or were the Emmys just … OK? Don’t get me wrong, I love the bits of comedy thrown in there (I love you, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler), but the big, expected showstopping number from host Neil Patrick Harris didn’t even happen until 90 minutes in.

Season 15 of “Big Brother” has been particularly spectacular with the MVP twist, the creation and decimation of the Moving Company, the unprecedented return of an evicted HouseGuest, the numerous shattered showmances and the racial controversy.
I’m ba-aaaack. Although awards season won’t kick off until the winter, there are a few star-studded stragglers to tide us over. The MTV Video Music Awards was no exception — and boy, did we have a show in store. Here are just some of the highlights from last Sunday’s big night:
