New Rules Govern Handling Of Oscar Envelopes

PwC met with the academy many times to come up with new protocols and safeguards, including the addition of a third balloting partner, who will sit with Oscar producers in the show’s control room. Just like the balloting partners stationed on either side of the Dolby Theatre stage, this person will have a complete set of winners’ envelopes and commit the winners to memory. A new formal procedure is in place for when envelopes are handed over. Both the celebrity presenter and a stage manager will confirm that they’ve been given the correct envelope for the category they are about to present.  All three balloting partners will attend show rehearsals and practice what to do if something goes wrong. The final change: PwC partners are prohibited from using cellphones or social media during the show.

Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Jasmine Cephas Jones, best known for playing the Schuyler sisters in the original cast and Leslie Odom Jr., who won a best actor Tony Award for his role of Aaron Burr in the musical, will perform “America the Beautiful” at Super Bowl LII. For both “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful,” deaf actress Alexandria Wailes will perform the songs in American Sign Language on behalf of the National Association of the Deaf.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank Getting Married

Buckingham Palace announced the engagement on Monday morning, adding that they got engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month. The palace also published official engagement photos of the couple. Eugenie is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew, the queen's second-born son. She is eighth in Britain's line of royal succession, though she will drop to ninth when Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have their 3rd child.

Matt Damon's Super Bowl Beer Commercial Is For A Good Cause

Stella Artois is airing its first Super Bowl ad since 2011, and it's all for a good cause. The beer company is partnering up with Matt Damon's charity, Water.org. The ad, called "Taps," is fitting for the Super Bowl, since everyone gets up and heads to the kitchen or the bathroom during commercial breaks. Matt Damon's narration showcases how a water tap might be nothing special to Americans, but access to clean water is not a given everywhere in the world. From January 15 - April 15, every time you buy a 12-pack of Stella Artois beer or cider, you're helping give 12 months of clean water for one person in the developing world. If you buy one pint or bottle of Stella at a bar, that will help for 1 month. And if you buy a limited edition chalice (AKA fancy beer glass), it'll help provide 5 years of clean water for someone. Go to water.org/stellaartois to buy a chalice.
