Outrage Watch: Method Man is really, really angry about this Wu-Tang album auction

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 5, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Method Man is speaking his truth -- loudly and with a lot of curse words. After hearing that his former Wu-Tang clan cohorts would be auctioning off the only copy of the band's secret "final" album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" for millions of dollars -- with the caveat that the buyer will not have the right to make money off the album for 88 years -- Method Man did not hold back in an interview with Xxl magazine. “Fuck that album,” said the rapper. “I’m tired of this shit and I know everybody else is tired of it, too. Fuck that album, if that’s what they are doing. I haven’t heard anything like that, but if they’re doing crap like that, »

Neil Patrick Harris Doubts He’ll Host the Oscars Again

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Neil Patrick Harris said in an interview with the Huffington Post that after hosting the 2015 Oscars, he doesn’t know if he could bear it again.

“I don’t know that my family nor my soul could take it,” he said with a laugh. “It’s a beast. It was fun to check off the list, but for the amount of time spent and the understandable opinionated response, I don’t know that it’s a delightful balance to do every year or even again.”

The “How I Met Your Mother” star says that every laugh was planned meticulously for the show, despite criticism that the show seemed too improvised and featured an abundance of unnecessary jokes on race. The jests ranged from Harris’ kick-off joke, “Today, we honor the best and whitest. Sorry, brightest” to Sean Penn later questioning how “Birdman” director Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu got his green card. »

Neil Patrick Harris Says His "Soul" Couldn't Take Another Oscars

6 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Neil Patrick Harris did the best he could given the poorly written emcee material of this year's 87th Academy Awards. The showman nobly took one for the team, from song-and-dancing his way through an opening act straight out of the Tonys to going onstage in his birthday suit. (The cameras failed to catch him patting down his butt and nipples as he walked offstage.) But in a recent Huffington Post interview, Harris subtly nixed our hopes (or fears) that he would return as Oscar host. "I don’t know that my family nor my soul could take it... It’s a beast. It was fun to check off the list, but for the amount of time spent and the understandable opinionated response, I don’t know that it's a delightful balance to do every year or even again." That sounds like a polite way of saying he didn't much enjoy it. »

News Nuggets: Will the Oscars return to just five Best Picture nominees each year?

21 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences "is seriously considering a return to its former policy" of just five Best Picture nominees at the Oscars. Rules were changed the past six years to allow up to 10 nominations in that top category, but "a significant fraction" of members wonder if that strategy has failed. This year's show featured eight contenders in that category. In addition, several board members say that too many Best Picture nominees have "watered down the prestige" without boosting Oscar telecast ratings. A decision could happen as soon as March 24 when the governors next meet. Hollywood Reporter -Break- Neil Patrick Harris isn't certain he would want to host the Oscars again after last month's first time helming the ceremony. Calling it "a beast," he admits, "I don't know that my family nor my soul could take it. It was fun to check off the list, but for »

Why the Oscars Shouldn’t Go Back to 5 Best Picture Nominees

4 March 2015 1:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This year’s Oscars were mildly rated and blasted by critics, and you know what that means: Instead of blaming host Neil Patrick Harris or the wan writing for that shortfall, the Academy is flirting with yet another rule change to shake things up. Every few years, this seems to happen in order to stir more interest in the lengthy awards-season race, where countless trophies are handed out before Oscar finally gets to weigh in. In 2009, the Academy expanded the Best Picture field from five nominees to ten in a famously muscular move; two years later, they tweaked that category to include anywhere between five and ten nominees, depending on how many contenders crossed a certain voting threshold. This time, according to The Hollywood Reporter, a significant amount of Academy higher-ups are urging the board to return to a simple five Best Picture nominees, which would nip in the bud »

The Walking Dead, Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut & Hannibal Nominated in 41st Annual Saturn Awards

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

Report: Academy Old Guard wants to go backward with just 5 Best Picture nominees

4 March 2015 2:12 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The awards world was hit with a bombshell on Tuesday afternoon after news broke that a "significant faction" of the Academy wants the Best Picture field returned to just five nominees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the old guard feels the current system has made the honor less prestigious and are using the low ratings of last month's telecast as proof that the expanded field doesn't work. The issue may be addressed as soon as the next Board of Governors meeting on March 24. Let me take a breath and prepare my reaction while you ponder this Hail Mary of a justification for a moment. (O.K., I'm ready.) Y'all crazy. First, let's discuss the "prestige" argument, shall we?   In 2009 the Best Picture field was increased to 10 nominees because of the horror (i.e. embarrassment) that the out-of-touch membership had snubbed popular and critically acclaimed blockbusters such as "Wall-e" and "The Dark Knight. »

The Oscars Without Dialogue Is Just Painfully Awkward—Watch If You Can Stand It!

3 March 2015 3:57 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If you thought the opening to Friends was awful and awkward without "I'll Be There for You" playing joyfully over the credits, then wait until you see this. YouTube user Bill Smith has decided to make the Academy Awards a little bit more boring and much more uncomfortable than the actual broadcast by removing all of Neil Patrick Harris' jokes and most of the crowd reactions. So it's pretty much just celebs like Emma Stone, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Keaton and Oprah staring up awkwardly as the host says nothing and sometimes stands there in nothing but his underwear. How long can you watch it without cringing at the video? We only made it 55 seconds in, and it was painful to make it that »
