It’s that time of the year again in Hollywood as Tinseltown’s biggest names gather for the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 4 (Monday, March 5, Manila time). We will keep you updated as winners are announced through this link.

Also happening today, the Senate Committee on Science and Technology is set to probe allegations of “nakaw-load” (stolen load) schemes, which involves unexplained deductions in prepaid mobile loads.
Meanwhile, our #AnimatED editorial this week takes on a tragedy that is unfolding before our eyes: the public spectacle at the Supreme Court. We stress this fact: a fragmented Supreme Court caught in the middle of eroded democratic freedoms and a steep descent toward authoritarianism is inutile as a check against extra-constitutional acts.
