Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of HB's North Beach and southern Hollywood Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

#Oscars and Film Observations - Miami native and film director Barry Jenkins seeks to make history, but past year's tsunami of critical praise for his Miami-based film #Moonlight makes it clear he'll be a leading Hollywood voice for originality for decades to come; #LaLaLand

#Oscars - At Oscars 2017, Miami native and film director Barry Jenkins seeks to make history, but past year's tsunami of critical praise for his Miami-based film #Moonlight makes it clear he'll be a leading Hollywood "name" and voice for originality for decades to come

Meanwhile, after months of critical praise for #LaLaLand -my favorite film in MANY years- that netted Damien Chazelle's ode to people dreaming of success in LA's hyper-competitive creative Biz 14 nominations, some people wonder if a backlash has emerged against it, esp. in big categories. 

But then why would you punish someone for success that comes from it resonating with people all over the world? What's the point of THAT?

Good advice!
