Culture Dump #25: 4 Awkward Things That Happen at Awards Ceremonies

Awards season. That unapologetically back-slappy period where society’s richest and most privileged come together to reward each other with golden statues. While us ‘normies’ (that’s probably what they call us, right?) don’t get to partake in the fun, that doesn’t mean we come away empty handed. Our gift is getting to see first hand the stream of painfully awkward situations these live ceremonies often birth. Moments like…

People Getting Played Off

​Let’s start with the basics. Watching stars fumble through their acceptance speeches is often a hotbed for awkward award show moments. Not least of all when they start to get played off halfway through their ‘Thank You’’s, ‘I Love You’s’ and ‘Oh God, this is so unexpected’’s. Some throw caution to the wind, refusing to have their moment in the sun cut short. Others meanwhile start to get flustered and decide to power through,

Jimmy Kimmel: Donald Trump Too Busy Defending Wife Beaters To Read Democrats’ Memo

Jimmy Kimmel weighed in on the Obama’s official portraits for the Smithsonian and Donald Trump’s refusal to publish the Dem memo rebutting Devin Nunes’. Former President Obama’s portrait, by artist Kehinde Wiley, is not the traditional man posing in front of desk.

Oscars flashback: Watch as Christopher Plummer confesses he was rehearsing his acceptance speech since birth
Christopher Plummer had to wait until his eighties to receive any attention from Oscar voters. The long-awaited first nomination for the 2010 film “The Last Station” followed an acclaimed career in “The Sound of Music,” “The Man Who Would Be King,” “Somewhere in Time,” and “The Insider.” Even with the sympathy vote and at his age, he wouldn’t win that night, losing to Christoph Waltz in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” for Best Supporting Actor.

However, two years later, Plummer was offered the plum role of Hal in the indie dramedy Beginners starring Ewan McGregor. It was that role that did bring Plummer his first (and only, so far) Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He played an elderly man dying of cancer who reveals to his son that he is gay with a young male lover.

Super Bowl celebration: Top 12 greatest football films, ranked worst to best, including ‘Friday Night Lights, ‘Jerry Maguire,’ Rudy’

  • Gold Derby
The Super Bowl closes out an exciting season of NFL football this Sunday with a strong match-up between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots. So for fans to bide their time in the many months before another kick-off, it’s time to turn your attentions to the greatest football films of all time. There are all kinds of football-based films out there to enjoy — from dramas to comedies, and even an award-winning documentary — and we’ve collected the top 12 here in our photo gallery, ranked from worst to best.

In paring down the list, we had to answer the question: “Just what is a football movie?” We didn’t include “The Blind Side,” for example, because though its central character plays football, the film is primarily about many other things. And while Act 3 of Robert Altman‘s “M*A*S*H” is made up of what is arguably the

Nick Nolte on His Infamous 2002 Mug Shot: I Looked ‘Like an Asylum Inmate Out for a Lark’

Nick Nolte on His Infamous 2002 Mug Shot: I Looked ‘Like an Asylum Inmate Out for a Lark’
On a recent afternoon at Nick Nolte‘s sprawling Malibu compound, the bushy-bearded 76-year-old actor takes a long slug from a coffee mug, stuffed with four bags of green tea, and talks about the day he was arrested for driving under the influence of Ghb — and the infamous photograph taken of him hours later.

“Ghb,” Nolte tells People in this week’s issue, “was one substance I ran into that I shouldn’t have messed with.”

The three-time Oscar nominee is out to set the record straight about his life as one of Hollywood’s most celebrated actors — and hell-raisers — in his new memoir,

‘Divorce’ Review: Season 2 Gets a Brighter, Funnier Makeover, But This HBO Comedy Still Cuts Deep

‘Divorce’ Review: Season 2 Gets a Brighter, Funnier Makeover, But This HBO Comedy Still Cuts Deep
“Divorce” Season 1 was a petrified flower of a TV show. A black comedy that cut deep, again and again, like a particularly thorny rose that you couldn’t stop picking up, Sarah Jessica Parker’s return to HBO was met with an aptly mixed reaction. For some, it was too bleak and too suffocating in its exhausting exploration of a broken marriage. For others, it provided insight into (and thus relief from) one of life’s most prevalent predicaments, making the process of divorce both intriguing in its unexpected challenges and moving in its oh-so-human central characters. The dead rose poked back so much it felt alive, and viewers gleaned something meaningful with every prick.

“Divorce” Season 2 is a rose in bloom, in that much of the elements that scared off onlookers before have been pruned. In their place lies a show intent on discovery, hope, and positive thinking, ushered

The Top Five Nick Nolte Yelling Scenes in Movies

Listening to Nick Nolte yell is like listening to rocks banging together. Nick Nolte had such a rough voice that you have to wonder if just talking hurts him sometimes or if it’s come by honestly due to one lifestyle choice or another, or if it just developed that way as he got older. I’ve heard tell of people that smoked and drank a lot in their lives earning a voice like this, but it also seems possible that it could just happen as one gets older. Whatever the case his voice is one of the roughest in Hollywood and

10 Die Hard Facts You Never Knew

10 Die Hard Facts You Never Knew
Yippee Ki-Yay, Christmas movie fans! Die Hard might just be the greatest action film ever made. It's endlessly quotable, made a huge movie star out of Bruce Willis, features one of the penultimate performances from the late Alan Rickman, and launched not only a franchise, but a slew of imitators, as well. Welcome to the party, pal! Here we look at 10 things you never knew about Die Hard.

Frank Sinatra could have been John McClane.

Ol' Blue Eyes had first dibs on the role that made Bruce Willis an action star. Die Hard is based on the 1979 crime novel Nothing Lasts Forever, which was a sequel to the 1966 book The Detective. The famous crooner turned actor starred in the 1968 film adaptation of The Detective and was therefore offered the chance to reprise the role of John McClane in the follow-up. Of course, Sinatra was already 73 by then, and said no.

Classic Eddie Murphy Movie “48 Hrs” is Getting a Remake

In the late 1980s, Eddie Murphy was really hitting his stride in the comedy world. With some very successful standup specials and some blockbuster films under his belt, he seemed like he was in just about every movie that Hollywood was putting out. So where did audiences first get a chance to really see Murphy in a comedy role? That would be his portrayal of recently paroled Reggie Hammond who is reluctantly forced into helping a cop to catch a serial killer. This film, entitled 48 Hrs., stars both Murphy and Nick Nolte as the unlikely duo to help solve

Eddie Murphy's 1982 Buddy-Cop Film 48 Hrs. is Getting a Remake

Since Hollywood is running out of ideas, they are looking at remaking a 1982 film called 48 Hrs. with Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte. The film is a buddy-cop comedy that helped launch the career of Murphy. The story followed a convict and cop who are forced to team up to catch a pair of cop killers within 48 hours.

The original movie, which was produced by Joel Silver, is entertaining and has some fun moments but it's far from being a great film. I'm not sure why anyone would want to remake this film because there's nothing original or unique about it. Films like this are a dime a dozen. Here's the trailer for the original film, in case you're not familiar with it:

The remake is set up at Paramount Players and it will be developed by the same team who brought us Robert Pattinson's crime thriller Good Time, Benny and Josh Safdie,

‘Good Time’ Tops Film Comment’s 20 Best Films of 2017; Safdies to Remake ’48 Hrs.’

One of the most electrifying, thrilling, and funny films of the year was Safdies’ Good Time, featuring Robert Pattinson in a career-best performance. While it didn’t exactly ignite the box-office, as the crime drama is now available to stream we hoped it would spur more year-end conversation and that looks to be the case. It’s now topped Film Comment’s best films of 2017, an eclectic list which also includes personal favorite such as A Quiet Passion, Nocturama, Personal Shopper, Dawson City: Frozen Time, Phantom Thread, and more.
