(Below are details spoilers for “Covenant I,” the fifth episode of the horror series “Them” on Amazon) Halfway through the first season of Amazon Prime Video’s “Them,” we finally start to get some answers about what’s really going on in this story. That’s because this episode is all flashbacks exploring, essentially, how the Emory family ended up where they are. We start with a pretty lengthy rundown on redlining and other methods of housing discrimination — and see how the deal they made on their house in East Compton is hugely predatory. And we also get the story of why the Emorys moved to California thanks to the horrifying “cat in a bag” scene. It’s not, uh, a fun story. We saw a little bit of these scene at the very beginning of “Them,” but we didn’t see how it played out then. Unfortunately, we do get to see it in this episode. Lucky (Deborah Ayorinde) is at home in North Carolina alone with Chester, the Emorys’ new baby boy — since Chester isn’t seen on “Them” before this moment, the dread is very real — while Henry and the girls are at a movie. Then an older white woman wanders up singing a creepy old song. The woman (Dale Dickey) pets the Emorys’ dog, Sergeant, and is generally just acting like she just randomly wandered over to say hello. Also Read: Is the Amazon Series 'Them' Based on a True Story? But then we hear Chester begin to cry from inside the house. And the woman tells Lucky that she wants to take him home with her. Lucky isn’t into that, of course. But the woman won’t take no for an answer. She comes back with two burly white country boys, and they menace Lucky and Chester while Lucky tries to hide. But they do manage to find the both of them, and things go very, very badly from there. One of the men rapes Lucky, and at the same time the white woman has tossed Chester into a pillowcase and plays a game she calls “Cat in a Bag.” This “game” consists of swinging the bag around wildly and tossing it around the room — with baby Chester inside. This scene feels like it goes on forever, with the woman chanting “cat in a bag” over and over and over and over. But eventually she stops, because Chester has died and has begun to bleed through the bag. Also Read: 'Them': New Amazon Prime Series Is a Lot of Things ... But It's Not 'Us' The event is so traumatic that Lucky can’t bear to live in that house anymore, and she spends more of her time in the storm shelter out back than she does in the house afterward. Until Henry gets a job in Los Angeles and the whole family can put North Carolina behind them. The entire sequence from when the men find Lucky to then end of the scene is just four minutes, but it feels like an hour. This “cat in a bag” deal is not, as far as we know, some common old timey method of torturing animals or people, though considering how much cats dislike being constrained this is no doubt something that at least some people have done. Humanity does, indeed, have a long history of doing terrible things to other people and animals alike. But as with everything on “Them,” this sequence is constructed the way it is because it’s trying to tell you something. The particular message here is one of dehumanization. These white people simply do not view the Emorys as people. It’s not a case of racism by way of “we think white people are better than Black people.” It’s racism by way of “we think white people are human, and Black people are animals.” Chester isn’t a human baby — he’s just a cat. Also Read: So Who Actually Won in 'Godzilla vs Kong'? It’s a key distinction to make in order to get a better grasp of how white folks give themselves permission to be racist. While people tend to be less overt about it these days, this belief certainly persists and underlies so much of modern conservative thinking. White people (“us”) are the baseline for people, and Black people (“them”) are less than that. This is not something that “reputable” people explicitly say out loud anymore, but it doesn’t have to be. For these white folks it’s simply understood on a subconscious level. It’s the subtext that defines so much in our society. Read original story Amazon’s ‘Them': We Have to Talk About That ‘Cat in a Bag’ Scene At TheWrap

“Tenet,” “Eurovision Song Contest,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “Greyhound” have won feature-film awards at the Motion Picture Sound Editors MPSE Golden Reel Awards, which took place on Friday evening in a virtual event. The MPSE divides the art of sound editing into several different categories, with “Tenet” winning for underscore, “Eurovision Song Contest” for music, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” for dialogue/ADR and “Greyhound” for effects/foley. In the past, the last of those categories has most closely corresponded to the Academy Award for Best Sound Editing — but that Oscar category was merged with the Best Sound Mixing category into a single Best Sound category this year. “Greyhound” is nominated in that category, along with “Soul,” “Mank,” “News of the World” and “Sound of Metal.” Also Read: Oscar Nominated 'Sound of Metal' Sonic Designer Breaks Down the Film's Profound Final Scene “Soul” won for sound editing in an animated feature, while “The Eight Hundred” won for a foreign-language feature and “The Reason I Jump” for a documentary feature. In the television categories, “The Queen’s Gambit” won three awards, including one in which it tied with “Star Trek: Picard” in the effects/foley category. “The Mandalorian” won two, with additional awards going to “Servant” and “Vikings.” “The Last of Us Part II” won a pair of awards in the computer-game categories. “Mad Max: Fury Road” director George Miller received the Filmmaker Award, while sound mixer Dennis Drummond was given the Career Achievement Award.

Sharon Osbourne was the first guest on “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday night, marking her first interview since she was dropped by “The Talk” last month for freaking out when co-host Sheryl Underwood challenged her defense of Piers Morgan’s attacks on Meghan Markle. In the interview with Maher, Osbourne blamed “disgruntled ladies” for losing her job, and said anyone who has accused her of uttering slurs is making it up. Maher began the discussion with a rundown of what happened on “The Talk” that dramatically downplayed what actually happened. “So on your ironically titled show ‘The Talk,’ you were talking. And if there’s one lesson from this, it’s that’s not allowed anymore. So I just want to say my view is nothing happened,” Maher said. Also Read: Bill Maher's Got Some Shocking New Fun Facts About Matt Gaetz (Video) He continued, “Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave their interview with Oprah. Then your friend Piers Morgan — he’s a commentator in Britain — he said he didn’t believe things that Meghan Markle said. And then on your show, you said, ‘Well, he’s a good friend of mine and I don’t necessarily agree with his opinion but he is entitled to his opinion.’ So he was called the racist and lost his job, and you were called a racist and lost your job. Do I have it right?” “You got it right,” Osbourne said. “That’s exactly how it went.” In reality, that’s not really how it went. Osbourne’s outburst (watch here) included gems such as her saying she felt “like I’m about to be put in the electric chair because I have a friend who many people think is a racist, so that makes me a racist.” Or when she yelled at her co-hosts, “How can I be racist about anybody?” “I’ve been called so many things in my life,” Osbourne told Maher. “I am so used to being called names, but a racist is one I will not take.” “Yeah,” Maher replied. “It’s an insult if you’re not one.” Also Read: Bill Maher Doesn't Buy Everything Meghan Markle Said in Oprah Interview (Video) There have been multiple times when Osbourne has been accused of uttering racial and homophobic slurs. Former “The Talk” co-host Leah Remini said Osbourne has referred to Julie Chen as “slanty eyes” and “wonton,” and that she had angrily called Sarah Gilbert, who is a lesbian, a “pussy licker” and a “fish eater.” Remini also claimed Osbourne subjected her to slurs against Italians. Another woman, an Iranian-American talent agent named Renee Tab, was reportedly subjected to slurs from Osbourne in 2003 when she won a raffle for a diamond necklace at a New Year’s Eve party for the Osbournes. Tab said Osbourne called her a “Persian carpet c—” the next day after inventing a story about Tab stealing the necklace — and then again a month later when they ran into each other at a restaurant. During the latter incident, Tab said, Osbourne also spit on her. Maher very lightly probed Osbourne about these incidents. “This is a part of culture that I’m not loving, where everyone is a snitch now. The current hosts have said they never heard you say anything racist. But some of the past ladies, they said you talk s—,” Maher said, referring to Remini’s claims mentioned above. “First of all, we’re talking about four ladies. I know men are dogs, and men are dogs.” Also Read: 'The Talk': Sheryl Underwood Feared Being Called 'Angry Black Woman' in Sharon Osbourne Blow-Up (Video) “And we’re bitches. That’s the way it goes,” Osbourne said. “That’s the way it goes with girls — ‘Jesus, did you see what she was just wearing?’ And then you go ‘Hi!’ or ‘You look great!’ We’re bitches, and that’s the way it is. And this has brought it all out.” “It’s disgruntled ladies,” she added. Then Maher brought up the incident with Tab. Osbourne told her version of that story, saying Tab shouldn’t have even been at the party — despite being the guest of someone who was invited by Osbourne’s son — and doubling down on her accusation that Tab stole the necklace. (It’s worth nothing that despite continuing to push that story after all this time, Osbourne did not pursue litigation after investigators decided it wasn’t a criminal matter.) Notably, however, Osbourne did not deny using a racial slur against Tab. “I don’t know what I said to her, but it wasn’t very nice. And I told her to bring that f—ing necklace back now, you b—- face whatever, because I had it,” Osbourne said.

Pixar’s “Soul” and Cartoon Saloon’s “Wolfwalkers” were the dominant films at the 48th annual Annie Awards Friday, with “Soul” winning seven awards and “Wolfwalkers” winning five. “Soul” won in the Best Feature category and took additional awards for its writing, music, FX, character animation, storyboards and editorial. “Wolfwalkers” won for Best Indie Feature as well as for directing, character design, production design and voice acting. No other feature film won an Annie, which is given out by the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood. Since the Academy Awards started a Best Animated Feature category in 2001, the Annies winner in the Best Feature category has gone on to win the Oscar 13 times in 19 years, including four times in the last five years. (The one exception was last year, when “Toy Story 4” won the Oscar but “Klaus” surprisingly won the Annie.) Pete Docter’s “Soul” was already considered a prohibitive frontrunner in the Oscar race, with Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart’s “Wolfwalkers” thought to be the only film with a remote chance to stage an upset. In television categories, Netflix’s “Hilda” won three awards and Cartoon Network’s “Genndy Tartovsky’s Primal” won two, with other awards going to “The Adventures of Paddington,” “Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous” and “The Mandalorian.” “The Snail and the Whale,” which was shortlisted but not nominated in the Oscars’ Best Animated Short category, won the Annie for Best Special Production, while “Souvenir Souvenir” won the award for Best Short Subject. Juried awards handed out at the ceremony included the June Foray Award to Daisuke “Dice” Tsutsumi, the Ub Iwerks Award to Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, the Special Achievement Award to the documentary “Howard” and Winsor McCay Awards to Willie Ito, Sue Nichols and Bruce Smith.

Geraldo Rivera literally begged his Fox News colleagues to “understand the anguish in the families of color” who watch the nightly news and, upon seeing the policy brutality, worry that when their child goes out at night, “that child may never come back.” The topic on Friday night’s “The Five” was the police fatal shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo and the disturbing body cam video of police chasing Toledo down an alley and shooting him as he turned around. After Jesse Waters read stats on police who have been killed on duty and Sean Duffy questioned, “Why wasn’t Adam — why wasn’t he in school? Why was he out at 2:00 in the morning? Why did he have a gun? Why was he part of a gang? Where were his parents?,” Rivera spoke up. “I think Sean makes excellent points and I love cops and I think cops have a very tough job and they risk everything, every time they go to work,” Rivera began. “But I beg you to understand the anguish in the families of color who are watching the news on a nightly basis looking at their child and worrying when that child goes out that that child may never come back, and fearing the cops.” Also Read: Sean Hannity Blasted for Calling Adam Toledo, Child Killed by Chicago Police, a '13-Year-Old Man' He pointed out the contrast to other neighborhoods where people look at cops and are relieved when the police show up. “That’s not the case in many areas in this country,” Rivera said. “And all the protests that you saw last summer — we have emphasized the riots and the looting and condemned them appropriately — but that represents a real reflection of the anguish and rage about police violence that’s out there. When you see this video…and you see the 13-year-old kid with special needs and no father at home, to answer Sean’s point, bleeding from his mouth as his life goes out –.” Rivera took a breath and continued: “If we, the most respected news organization in the nation, perhaps, don’t recognize the anguish of the people watching the 13-year-old’s life going out of his body, then we don’t deserve the ratings. We don’t deserve it. We have to be sensitive to the way they see life.” Read original story Geraldo Rivera Begs Fox News Colleagues to ‘Understand the Anguish’ for Families of Color (Video) At TheWrap
