GAHH. This is infuriating. I don't care much for awards or the like, but c'mon.
What science fiction film (not limited to North American films, obvi) from the last 50 years would you nominate for Best Picture?
If they'd adapt more sf novels (especially the award winning ones) for the screen this might be a different story.

A few weeks back, an enormous book the colour of a tube of Love Hearts landed on my desk. It was Akademie X: Lessons in Life an Art. Not often does a book look this succulent: the weight, texture and little details were enough to have the whole editorial team cooing over it. Published by Phaidon, it's a collection of lessons written by artists such a Miranda July, Katharina Grosse, Walead Beshty, Marina Abramovic, Tim Rollins, John Stezaker and many others.
Charlotte Rutherford's photography is fun, bright and tinged with humour and 1980s sass. Shooting editorial for the likes of Vice and Tank magazine and look-books for Lazy Oaf and Baby G, the self-taught photographer maintains an aesthetic that is both well-informed and original. She cites David LaChapelle and Pierre et Gilles as major influences on her work, saying that they prove the encouraging dictum "OK cool, you can do like ANYTHING." I couldn't agree more.
I always imagine that rebranding an architectural consultancy must be the dream gig for a design agency. There's so much to work with in terms of structural materials, geometric forms, textures, type and slick photography. Even so it's not every day you see an architectural rebrand executed with the kind of flair with which Two Points has created Aamodt/Plumb's new corporate materials.

Adventure photographer Cory Richards almost died in an avalanche while descending from a mountain in Pakistan, but he lived and the experience changed his life.
In this short (and amazing) video, he shares on "the richness that comes through struggle."
"I've never been comfortable in the place that I'm in. I can't stop and sit. It's a constant engine that's driving me to the things that are unknown to me."

Emmanuel Shiu is a concept artist and designer for the film and gaming industries, whose clients include SOny Pictures, Universal, Disney, Paramount and Warner Brothers, among others.
His images often combine high fantasy, futuristic cityscapes and high-tech environments with a feeling of tactile and sometimes gritty reality. I enjoy the way he can suggest immense scale an detail, while keeping the unity of his forms intact within the composition.
Shiu's website features a sampling of his work from several projects, and his blog features more professional work, along with a number of personal projects. He also has an alternate blog with more professional work and you can find additional galleries on hie ArtStation and deviantART pages.
There is an interview with Shiu on CG Channel.
