As ever, the recent Oscar nominations lead to discussion of what is and isn't worthy of celebration across the last year or so of film. This list of our favourite films of 2018 may evoke a similar response from some readers. Alas, a number of 2018's acclaimed films have escaped our attention ranging from Alex Garland's Netflix Original 'Annihilation' to Bollywood comedy-drama 'Pad Man', and there's plenty of honourable mentions to address first.

In a break from our regular programming, we bring you the latest freestyle from 2016 MOBO Best Female Act Lady Leshurr. Mainly because 'Horrid' appropriates the classic primary school playground phrase "liar, liar, pants on fire". No, really, it does. Having initially shared an unfinished version of the track as a freestyle rap on social media earlier this week, she's impressively managed to bash out an excellent studio version and a video in about 48 hours, which you can check out below.

Censored! Stage, Screen, Society At 50 at Victoria and Albert Museum (10 July 2018-27 January 2019) // Words: Saam Das

The Lord Chamberlain's Theatres Act of 1968 brought an end to censorship for British theatre - or did it? The Victoria and Albert Museum (more specifically, curators Anna Landreth Strong and Simon Sladen) are on hand to investigate. The free Censored! Stage, Screen, Society At 50 display reflects on the history of regulation in the theatre setting from the 17th century through to more recent censorship issues across film and music, as well as on stage.

We've been eagerly anticipating Kelsie Hogue's debut album as US queer pop hero Sir Babygirl for a lil while now, which will be dropping mid-Feb on Father/Daughter Records. Following the likes of 'Flirting With Her' and 'Heels', Sir Babygirl leans further into synthpop (with an emphasis on the pop) on new track 'Everyone Is A Bad Friend', and we're feeling it. A lot.
