Ranking the Award-Winning Adult Actors in 2014 Ya Adaptations

5 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Thanks to the successful film adaptations of The Hunger Games franchise and The Fault In Our Stars, 2014 could be dubbed the year of the Ya. The genre of books took over the box office with other big screen takes on the first of the Divergent series, The Giver, If I Stay, and The Maze Runner.

While the primary focus on these films was the young stars that embodied the angst-ridden teens of the books, every one of these movies was supported by an award-winning adult actor. Even Meryl Streep got into the Ya game, adding pedigree to The Giver, which starred budding star Brenton Thwaites.

But how did Streep compare to Julianne Moore, who stepped into the role of President Coin in the third Hunger Games film, or to Kate Winslet, who portrayed the villain in the first installment of Divergent? We ranked all of the 2014 film performances based on who used their Oscar prowess to maximum »

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Amy Adams brings the holiday cheer

6 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Amy Adams has played some dark and complex characters—in American Hustle, for example—but when I think of her, I can't help but see the earnest, optimistic women she played in movies like Enchanted, Junebug, and Doubt. It makes for an unusual blend on a show like Saturday Night Live, which Adams hosted for the first time since 2008 over the weekend. The star of Tim Burton's Big Eyes had some help from Kristen Wiig and Fred Armison on the SNL Christmas episode—but she also delivered a fun monologue and popped up in some of the best sketches of the night, »

Channing Tatum Wants To Play Venom, Sinister Six Wishlist Revealed

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the fate of Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man franchise is very much up in the air right now, we do know that at one point, the studio was ready to move forward with both a Sinister Six and Venom spinoff. It’s unclear if they still plan to do so, what with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being a bit of a bomb for them, but the projects are likely still being considered.

So far, no official casting has been confirmed, but the studio obviously has a wishlist of who they’d like to see bring these comic book characters to life. Now, thanks to some leaked Sony emails, we know who they have their eye on.

Drew Goddard, who is set to be behind the camera for Sinister Six, wanted Tom Hardy for Sandman and Emily Blunt for Scorpia. Meanwhile, studio head Amy Pascal liked Emilia Clarke and Elizabeth Olsen for Scorpia, »

Sony Wanted Tom Hardy as Sandman and Sean Penn as Doctor Octopus in Sinister Six

12 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

According to leaked Sony Pictures emails from May, there were a lot of talks about the studio's "Sinister Six" film, which will be directed by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and focus on Spider-Man villains. Goddard mentioned that he wanted Tom Hardy to play Sandman, but there were also talks of making the villain the movie's comic relief, which is why actors like Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Chris O'Dowd, Michael Pena, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, and Sharlto Copley were also on the list. Goddard wanted Emily Blunt as Scorpia, but Sony Pictures chairman Amy Pascal suggested Emilia Clarke and Rose Byrne. Sean Penn and Woody Harrelson were wanted for Doctor Octopus (the team's leader), while Colin Firth for The Vulture and Channing Tatum for Venom. Other actors like Denzel Washington, George Clooney and Daniel Craig were all considered for various roles. »

5. Clara Oswald

Played by Jenna Coleman in Doctor Who

No matter what some would have you believe, Clara Oswin Oswald was never a bad Doctor Who companion, and Jenna Coleman's work on the veteran sci-fi series has never been anything less than stellar. That said, there's no denying that the character previously lacked a certain something - that extra spark - that would really endear her to viewers.

Happily, the Clara that partnered with Peter Capaldi's new Doctor was almost an entirely »

Kate Winslet in Early Talks for Female Lead in Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs Biopic

19 December 2014 12:41 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Sony Pictures is dealing with the fallout from the North Korean cyber-attack, a former Sony project is barreling forward.  Universal Pictures recently picked up the Aaron Sorkin-scripted Steve Jobs biopic from Sony, and while the film had trouble firming up its cast, it appears that things are finally coming together.  Michael Fassbender is set to play the Apple innovator, Seth Rogen is onboard as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Danny Boyle is firmly in the director’s chair.  Now, after Natalie Portman previously flirted with the role, it appears that Kate Winslet is now in line to join the project as the female lead.  More after the jump. Per Variety, Kate Winslet is in early negotiations to play the female lead in Jobs.  Details regarding the role are unclear at this time, but the movie is structured like a play as it’s comprised of only three major »

Movie Review – Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

19 December 2014 12:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dumb and Dumber To, 2014

Directed by The Farrelly Brothers

Starring Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Kathleen Turner

Synopsis:

20 years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry’s newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption.

Fans of Dumb and Dumber have been clamouring for a sequel for a long time. The original is thought to be not just one of the funniest comedies of the decade, but possibly of all-time. It was a box office smash and came out at a time when anything Jim Carrey touched turned to gold, but those times have changed. Carrey hasn’t released a decent comedy since Bruce Almighty and his co-star Jeff Daniels has moved on to serious dramas and impressive performances in TV shows like The Newsroom. Twenty years is a long time.

In short, Dumb and Dumber To is embarrassing. »

TV Shows We Can't Wait for in 2015

16 December 2014 12:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.

"The Walking Dead"

The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

The 10 Best TV Dramas of 2014

15 December 2014 1:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blame “True Detective,” in part, which helped kick off 2014 in rousing fashion, but the blurred line between “limited series” and just plain old series has complicated the definition of a “drama.” But for the purposes of a year-end list, the two can coexist, encompassing any program presented on an episodic basis, even if the story offered closure.

By that measure, both “True Detective” and “Fargo” — the latter categorized as a miniseries for Emmy balloting — as well as Starz’s “The Missing” can join an array of dramas that, frankly, could easily fill a “top 20” list. But who on Earth has time to click through that?

Obviously, reducing the current age of drama to an arbitrary tally is going to overlook several heavy hitters, and the roster underwent considerable tinkering right down till the end. Series like “The Walking Dead,” “Mad Men” and “Downton Abbey” – -which all would have qualified in the past –- didn’t, »

The year in TV: The rise of single-director television seasons

15 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Clive Owen and Michael Angarano in The Knick

From the apparent death of the romantic sitcom to the resurgence of superhero shows, there have been a lot of developments in television over the year. But if there is one trend that has defined 2014 in television, it has been the migration of directors to the small screen for season-long projects. While not an idea that’s unique to the year, as the Jane Campion-helmed first season of Top of the Lake signalled the trend in 2013, this year’s television firmly established the migration as something more than a novelty.

Of course, big name directors hopping in for an episode or two of shows they are executive producers on is nothing new. Martin Scorsese’s direction in the pilot no doubt convinced some people to give Boardwalk Empire a chance, as did Neil Marshall’s work on the pilot of Constantine »

Best TV of 2014: No 7 – True Detective

15 December 2014 1:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The noir-ish HBO series, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, was a rare serial killer story that favoured strangeness over gore, and viewers were hooked on the mystery

See the full countdown so farNominate your pick in our form at the bottom of the article

Time may be a flat circle, but enough has rotated that some of the lustre has left True Detective. HBO’s prestige procedural felt dazzling on-screen – spanning 17 years, a meaty, two-hander between damaged, driven cop Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and his self-righteous, self-deluding partner Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) against the pungent backdrop of the Louisiana bayou. Cohle and Hart did not banter over corndogs like Starsky and Hutch. Instead, there were fractious arguments in a suffocating car. Whenever Cohle embarked on another nihilistic monologue about the nature of evil, Hart looked about ready to snap off the steering wheel.

Things were just as interesting behind-the-scenes. »

30 Best TV Series of 2014

12 December 2014 9:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. The Leftovers

There have been a number of new and returning shows that have enthralled, horrified, excited, and caused numerous other emotional reactions among the viewing public. However no show, new or old, has left an impression as deep as that of HBO’s The Leftovers. While the series’ 10 episode first season ended its run in early September, its impact has lasted much longer, making it a strong entry in the list of the best shows of 2014.

The key strength of The Leftovers is its seeming disinterest in what caused the event at the center of the show. The series’ decision to focus on the effect rather than the cause not only sets it apart from nearly everything else on television, it also helps develop the show’s wide swath of characters. In addition, putting the disastrous event as the backdrop, rather than at the forefront, allows the audience to »

Jennifer Lawrence has also met with Paul Feig for Ghostbusters reboot

11 December 2014 10:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we brought you the news that Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect 2) had met with Paul Feig for the Ghostbusters reboot. And now we bring word that Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1) has also met with the director about a role.

Speaking with MTV (via Cbm) Lawrence said, “I actually met with the director. I had dinner with him. Yeah I sure did… I will never cross the streams.”

Lawrence and Wilson are the only confirmed names for having met with Feig, but it is assumed that Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (St. Vincent), Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Linda Cardellini (Scooby Doo) are on the shortlist. Well, at least that was original Ghostbuster Bill Murray had on his wish list.

Jennifer Lawrence is currently starring in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is out now in cinemas, and also stars Josh Hutcherson, »

Announcing the 2015 Golden Globe Nominations

11 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, continuing this week's exciting slew of award nods after Wednesday's SAG Award nominees. There are way more movie nominations to go around this time, what with both the drama and musical/comedy categories, so even tohough there are a lot of the same names seen at the SAGs, there are still some new entrants to award season, like Selma and Big Eyes (though still no American Sniper or Unbroken). There are some surprises in the TV categories, however; while there are lots of repeat names from years past (and this year's Emmys), it's exciting to see Jane the Virgin (and its star, Gina Rodriguez) and Transparent up for Globes! The Globes air Jan. 11, so see everyone who's nominated here.

Golden Globe Nominations: 26 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

11 December 2014 8:22 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. loves to nominate celebrities, but this year, voters left a few off the list — no Angelina Jolie for directing “Unbroken,” no Ben Affleck for “Gone Girl,” no Bradley Cooper for “American Sniper” and no Julia Roberts for HBO’s “The Normal Heart.” The Golden Globes voters, made up of fewer than 100 foreign journalists, don’t overlap with the Academy, but because their nominations are announced just days before the Oscars nominating window, they are an influential group in terms of giving performances a boost. And the big winners after Thursday morning’s announcement included Jake Gyllenhaal for “Nightcrawler,” Jennifer Aniston in “Cake,” David Oyelowo for “Selma” and “Birdman,” which landed more nominations than any other film (seven). On the TV side, the Globes proved to once again be the hippest awards show, by including freshman series like “Jane the Virgin,” “Silicon Valley” and “Transparent.”
