Though Selma didn't win Best Picture--and though its key players were denied mere nominations for their respective categories--Common and John Legend still found a way to achieve Oscar acclaim for the film.

Keira Knightley has earned plenty in her career--but a golden statue hasn't yet been part of her haul. That may change soon, as she's up for Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the 87th Academy Awards. Here’s a rundown on the data FORBES has collected on her in recent years.

SNL 40 has come to its conclusion--at long last--and while the marathon celebration reminded millions of how Saturday Night Live has changed over the past four decades, it also revealed quite a lot about what has changed about the media landscape during the same period: namely, the meaning of "live."

In some cases, heading home with hardware doesn't necessarily make an act a big winner at the Grammys (see Beyoncé, who got snubbed in the Album of the Year category), just as getting shut out doesn't guarantee that the ceremony was a loss (see Ed Sheeran). Here's my take on who emerged victorious in the broadest sense--and who, or what, did not.

Sam Smith took home four Grammy awards at the 57th annual edition of music’s biggest night, including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist. It’s quite a haul for someone unknown to mainstream audiences just a year ago.

The difference in the coverage Williams and Stewart's respective departures underscore a bizarre and problematic reality: the country's most prominent purveyor of fake news is more trusted than its top traditional television news anchor.

Sam Smith was the biggest winner on music’s biggest night, taking home four of the six Grammy awards for which he was nominated. Unlike some of the superstars who garnered less Grammy glory, Smith stopped by the media room to answer questions from the press.

Eminem took home two more Grammys at music's biggest night, extending his career total to 15--and, for a change, preempted some controversy.
