10 Times Brad Pitt Made Your Bottom Lip Quiver

19 December 2014 12:49 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

William Bradley Pitt. In the maelstrom of human physical perfection, rarely has a single being elicited so much universal awe as this man. Whether you’re an admirer of his films, or would simply like him to hold you ever so gently, there’s a piece of the Brad Pitt pie for everyone. So to speak. For over twenty years he’s been fawned over by legions of male and female fans, propelling the swoonsome hunk of meat into Hollywood sex-lore. Whatever that is.

But strictly from a hetero-male perspective, it’s likely you fall into one of three categories: one is you can’t stand the man or his films. Which makes you a liar. Category two is kind of admiring him from afar, bullishly envious of his good looks and ability to make you feel inferior. The final, and probably most common category, is having confusing thoughts »

Sony hack: A full timeline of events leading up to The Interview axe

18 December 2014 9:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview is now much more than just a movie.

The comedy, about an assassination attempt on North Korea leader Kim Jong-un, has been pulled from release after hackers issued a terror threat against cinemas planning to show the film.

The massive security breach at Sony Pictures Entertainment (The Interview's backers) has seen personal emails and data combed over and made public, ripping back the curtain on one of Hollywood's biggest studios and exposing the inner workings of a multinational corporation.

Digital Spy presents a timeline of events below...

June 20: North Korea criticises Sony Pictures over their forthcoming film The Interview. The Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy centres on a TV host and his producer as they head to North Korea on a stealth mission to assassinate leader Kim Jong-un.

In a letter to the Un, the country describes it as "undisguised sponsoring of terrorism, »

Aaron Sorkin thinks women have it easier in Hollywood

17 December 2014 12:54 PM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Aaron Sorkin thinks women's on-screen roles have a lower ''degree of difficulty'' than men's. A leaked email, published by The Daily Beast, shows the 53-year-old producer arguing that Meryl Streep and Dame Helen Mirren are two of the only female stars ''who can play with the boys''. In the email, written in response to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, Aaron discusses the 2011 romantic comedy 'Bridesmaids'. He observed: ''That was a great and very interesting column today. I'd only take issue with one thing and that's the idea that something like Bridesmaids is seen as a fluke and that's why we don't see more movies like Bridesmaids. ''There's an implication that studio heads have a stack of Bridesmaids-quality scripts on their desk that they're not making and it's just not true. The scripts aren't there.

Sony leak: Aaron Sorkin claims women have less difficult roles than men

15 December 2014 2:10 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Aaron Sorkin has claimed that women's roles in Hollywood have a lower "degree of difficulty" than men's.

In a leaked email published by The Daily Beast, Sorkin argues that Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren are two of the only female stars "who can play with the boys".

The leak follows the revelation that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams were paid less than their American Hustle co-stars, despite having more screen time than some of them.

Responding to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, he wrote to her in an email: "That was a great and very interesting column today. I'd only take issue with one thing and that's the idea that something like Bridesmaids is seen as a fluke and that's why we don't see more movies like Bridesmaids.

"There's an implication that studio heads have a stack of Bridesmaids-quality scripts on their desk that they're not making and it's just not true. »

Jennifer Aniston earned her first Golden Globe nom since 2003 on Thursday, landing in the category for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama for her role in Cake, and Tom told us she may have a strategy to take her all the way to the Oscar red carpet.

"She's entering this race with a little movie that doesn't have a big distributor and entering it late," Tom said on the Et set. "So what did she do? She went out and hired Harvey Weinstein's Oscar consultant."

According to Tom, Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama frontrunners include Eddie Redmayne for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

"He portrays a real-life person and they love that at Hollywood awards," he said. "He »

'Annie' Star Jamie Foxx Celebrates Quvenzhane Wallis' Golden Globe Nom

11 December 2014 4:25 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Many stars woke up to the good news this morning that they had been nominated for a Golden Globe Award. But one pint-sized actress sang and danced her way to her first-ever nomination. At 11 years old, Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy nominee Quvenzhane Wallis is the youngest actor up for the golden statuette this year.

Et caught up with Quvenzhane soon after she learned of the nomination. Her Annie co-star Golden Globe winner Jamie Foxx even stopped by to congratulate her!

"She is so great at what she does you forget she's only been here 11 years," Jamie gushed to Et. "For people to look at the art and award you, not with a pat on the back or a good critique, you get nominated for a Golden Globe. How many celebrities, actors and actresses, have gone through Hollywood and never gotten that opportunity?... It's mind blowing."

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.

2015 Golden Globes nominees snubs and surprises: What happened to 'Unbroken?'

11 December 2014 9:13 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thursday morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association woke every awards season addict up at the crack of dawn to announce the nominees for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards. For those following every step on the road to the Oscars, many of the nominations were predictable and safe. But even the HFPA goes off the rails sometimes, making bold and baffling choices that can shake up the race. Below, our look at some of the bigger snubs and surprises in both the film and television categories: Surprise: Everything "Annie" Sony Pictures is keeping the lid on reactions to its rejiggered musical remake, but early word suggests something… just fine. Either those vague reactions are seriously under-appreciating "Annie" or the upbeat, adorable showstopper struck the sappy HFPA voters right in their hearts. The organization didn't nominate Quvenzhané Wallis for her Oscar-approved "Beasts of the Southern Wild" performance, but they found room for »

The Golden Globes! Everyone’s favorite Almost-the-Oscars ceremony. The 72nd Annual nominations were unveiled Thursday morning by presenters Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Paula Patton, Peter Krause and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma.

The HFPA went in big on Boyhood, The Imitation Game, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything, placing Birdman into the Comedy/Musical category where it is likely to clean up. Missing from the bunch are heavy hitters like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and only a single nomination for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

On the TV front, it was a big morning for Transparent, Orange is the New Black, The Affair, and House of Cards, while snubbing Emmy favorites Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, as well as hits like The Walking Dead, The Americans, Mad Men or the final season of Boardwalk Empire.

Nominations For The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Announced

11 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.

There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor. »

'Selma' rescued and a bad day for 'Unbroken' with 72nd Golden Globe nods unveiled

11 December 2014 6:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association unveiled the nominees for the group's 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards — aka Hollywood's drunkest night — Thursday morning. And in the aggregate, there aren't a lot of major takeaways in terms of changing the landscape of the Oscar race. Just a general further sculpting of the clay we already have on the table. The Best Picture - Drama category was marked by the three-horse race as I defined it recently: "Boyhood," "The Imitation Game" and "Selma" (which really needed the boost this morning, and happily showed up in the Best Director category, too). Finding room besides was "Foxcatcher" (a surprise for me as I heard the group didn't like the film) and "The Theory of Everything." So if you're keeping track, on the sidelines was "Gone Girl" (though David Fincher landed a director nod and the screenplay and score were chalked up alongside Rosamund Pike), "Whiplash" and… »
