Birdman flew away with the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture on Sunday. Edward Norton opened the cast's acceptance speech by declaring "age before beauty" as a means of introducing his costar Michael Keaton, who said acting with his costars was "the ultimate team sport, what we do for a living" and paid respect to "all the great actors out there ... people who have laid themselves on the line and put it out there." Birdman was up against Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything. Kevin Costner »

The 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are going down tonight live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. I plead ignorance on a lot of the TV stuff (sorry Dan and Alan), but on the movies side, there is a lot of intrigue. After last night's Producers Guild victory for "Birdman," and with the film being a favorite to take the ensemble and lead actor prizes tonight, everyone is wondering if Alejandro González Iñárritu's film will come out of this weekend looking Boss. We'll know in due time. For now, if you have the stomach for me, follow along with our live blog of the ceremony below. We'll obviously note winners along the way, but we're keeping track of them here as well. On to the show! *** 4:15 - (P.S.: I'm totally watching the Royal Rumble on my laptop at the same time, so if I »

This review originally ran with our 2014 Tiff coverage Plot: After his wife dies, a grandfather (Kevin Costner) has to fight for custody of his biracial granddaughter against the girl's father and grandmother (Octavia Spencer). Review: There was a moment at the Tiff screening of Black Or White that I attended that really drove home the message Mike Binder/Kevin Costner's film was trying to deliver about race. Costner is called upon to testify about the prospect of the father of his »

Photo: Screen Actors Guild It's the first major industry award show of the year as the media has weighed in with their thoughts at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards, but tonight the Screen Actors Guild announce the winners of the 2015 SAG Awards and Laremy and I are back at the helm, live-blogging the awards just as we did with the Golden Globes. As far as the current awards race is concerned, with Birdman winning the Producers Guild Awards last night, all eyes will be on the ensemble category as Boyhood will be looking to gain back that edge and remain the Oscar frontrunner. However, should Birdman take tonight's top prize don't be surprised to see Birdman swing into that top spot in my Best Picture predictions. We'll see how things turn out...

Ok, so it’s fair to say I’m not a sports guy. I hated playing sports in high school, I don’t watch sports on TV (well apart from the odd Superbowl on Channel 4 back when I was a teenager) and I certainly would never choose to watch sports over a movie. But what about sports movies? I’m a sucker for them! Of course it helped that I had a parent who loved the feel-good underdog stories that many a sports flick was essentially built around. Thanks to my mum I grew up watching sports movies such as Major League, Lucas, Field of Dreams, Hoosiers, The Mighty Ducks and many more…

Kevin Costner sidles into a West Hollywood hotel room at precisely noon. After making about 50 films and winning two Oscars (for Dances With Wolves, the movie he directed and produced a quarter-century ago), he knows when he’s on the clock. He gives every appearance of being the Joe Regular you expect, the Western-movie star of his era. Sun-bronzed, rugged face, camel-color Levi’s, cowboy boots. He supposes they’re Lucchese. “You’d have to ask my wife,” he says. “She bought them. The only thing I know about clothes is how to put them on.” So it’s disorienting to hear Costner — the environmentalist and booster of Native American cultural history — hurl the term “street nigger” onscreen. In his new biracial-custody-fight drama Black or White, that phrase is employed by both black and white characters. Its presence in the script by writer-director Mike Binder may have been a red flag for investors, »

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are this weekend and we have everything you need to know before tuning in.
News: SAG Awards' Biggest Snubs and Surprises
What Time Are They On?: The telecast airs live Sunday on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. Et/ 5 p.m. Pt.
What Makes This Awards Show Different?: The SAG Awards has no host and also has categories with no Oscar equivalent (i.e. Outstanding Performance by a Cast). Nominees are also announced so early (Dec. 10) that there's usually at least one film that gets shut out of the award show due to late screeners. This year both American Sniper and Selma got screeners out too late for consideration, so that's why you won't be seeing representatives from either of those films.
Do They Predict the Oscars?: The short answer is yes. Last year all four SAG award winners in film went on to win the Academy Award. Films »
After seven kids, it's safe to say Kevin Costner has picked up a few simple parenting hacks. Namely, how to turn four-year-old daughter Grace Avery Costner into a daddy's girl. "She's becoming that right now, and that's usually because her mommy starts to say no to her," the Black and White star admitted to E! News of his youngest child, whom he welcomed with wife Christine Baumgartner in June 2012. "I don't say yes all the time," he added with a smile, "But for a while, if you want that real good attention, you have to say yes a little bit more." Talk about mastering the tricks of the trade!

Anthony Mackie clearly got a kick out of playing Sam “The Falcon” Wilson in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And there are few more vocal cheerleaders for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his character. But he seems even more pumped than usual for Captain America: Civil War, as he told Collider during a press day for Kevin Costner drama Black And White.Mackie has read the most recent draft of the script and, while he couldn’t get too specific lest Marvel boss Kevin Feige spring out from a hotel couch and shoot him with a poison dart, he’s clearly ready to kick the hype machine into top gear. “Let’s just say it’s a wing-ding-doozy of a time,” he enthuses. “The great thing about it is, after seeing The Avengers I joked and said Captain America 2 was Avengers 1.5. Now with Avengers 2 coming out... Captain America 3 »
News: Black or White Stars On Racism In America
In the movie, Kevin plays a widower who finds himself in a custody battle over his granddaughter with the child's paternal grandmother (Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer). Lily sings in the movie.
"She's a beautiful singer," Kevin told Et. "Originally someone else was going to sing Black or White, but they wanted more money than I had. Finally it turned out to be better."
The Oscar winner was flanked by both his daughter and wife of a decade Christine Baumgartner at the Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday, where Christine donned a sheer black top and midi skirt and Lily opted for a show-stopping salmon-colored gown with a thigh-high slit.
"I just look at [Lily] and adore her," Kevin said.
The theater was flush with pride at last night’s premiere of Mike Binder’s custody battle drama, “Black or White,” held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live — where star and producer of the film, Kevin Costner, and cast members Octavia Spencer, Bill Burr and plucky tween newcomer Jillian Estell came out to screen the movie and celebrate.
“This is a really well-produced movie, and when you make a movie, you’ve got to have people who are creative and resourceful and work long, crazy hours,” Kavanaugh told the crowd. “I love you, Mike Binder, and I just want to make another movie with you. We all love you, Mike Binder.”
Binder spoke openly and honestly about the film’s challenge to find a studio distributor, thanking both Kavanaugh »

Before you get too excited: no, Nicolas Cage won't be playing the infamous terrorist Osama Bin Laden in this movie - although that would admittedly be pretty amazing.
THR reports that Cage will star in a satirical comedy called Army of One for Borat director Larry Charles. And though this will be based on a true story, don't expect anything serious along the lines of American Sniper or Zero Dark Thirty.
Army of One is loosely based on Chris Heath's GQ magazine article recounting the real-life misadventures of Gary Faulkner, a Colorado construction worker who took it upon himself to find Bin Laden, including trying to sneak into Pakistan and Afghanistan numerous times.
Sounds a little like the Morgan Spurlock documentary Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?, but hopefully Cage's...let's call it "unique" brand of acting will give this film a life of its own. Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph, »
