Disney's hugely successful “Frozen 2" wasn't feeling any warmth on Monday as the much-awaited sequel to the Oscar-nominated original was left out in the cold — or lost in the woods, in the words of one of its more popular songs.

He’s suddenly the hottest ticket in Iowa, but Pete Buttigieg cannot win his party’s presidential nomination without dramatically improving his standing with the African-American voters who play a major role in subsequent states. Until that happens, much of the political establishment will continue to view the 37-year-old small-city mayor’s presidential bid with skepticism.
As we are just three months out from the Iowa Caucus, we assess why it is so important. Experts weigh in on whether it is possible to win the …

CBS All Access’ “Good Wife” spinoff only previously nabbed nominations in music-related categories, despite its consistently sharp storylines and Christine Baranski’s leading performance. It turned out 2019 is another year that Emmy voters have opted not to applaud the show, which is currently airing an encore run on CBS. Perhaps they’ll be sure to tune in for next year’s nominations.
