Ellen, who turned 57 on Jan. 26, snapped a selfie with the stars behind the scenes. It wasn't filled with quite as many celebs as her famous Oscar selfie, but it’s still awesome to see stars smiling together.
Well, not all of them were smiling. Kayne had an ear to ear grin, and even the famously morose Smith gave a subtle grin, but Justin couldn't help but try and look cool.
Of course, his stony demeanor might have had something to do with his nerves. In a video Bieber posted to Facebook, the "Boyfriend" singer admitted that he had been incredibly nervous while filming the episode because he "was »
I've never been the biggest Julianne Moore fan. The first time I ever saw her on screen was as a dino-scientist in "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" (1997). I was 13 and I recall thinking, "I won't be sad if she gets eaten." I guess this puts me in the mindset of an average Oscar voter, who've nominated her four previous times but never awarded her the trophy. In other words, we like her, we just don't love her. That is, until I saw Moore's gut-wrenching performance in "Still Alice." -Break- Oscars news: Julianne Moore on connecting with 'Still Alice,' three acts of Meryl Streep As a linguistics professor struggling with early-onset Alzheimer's, Moore completely transforms from a fun-loving wife and mother to a shattered woman whose mind melts away before our eyes, one painful memory at a time. By the time she fails to find the bathroom and loses control of her bladder, »
It's always a little shocking to realize that the celebrities we grew up watching on TV, idolizing in movies, and singing along to on the radio are actually aging (just see this advice from ladies like Beyoncé, Sharon Stone, and Meryl Streep). Nothing reminds you of your mortality faster than finding out Clueless came out almost 20 years ago and that "kids today" are actually tweeting things like "What's *Nsync?" On the other hand, there are also plenty of stars who, because of their talent, accomplishments, and maturity, always trick us into thinking they're much older than they actually are - for instance, we still can't quite wrap our heads around the fact that both Amber Heard and Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie are in their twenties. If you think you can handle the truth, keep reading to see what age these celebrities really are, and be prepared to do some double takes. »
Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »

"RuPaul's Drag Race" is coming back March 2 with a judging panel consisting of veterans RuPaul and Michelle Visage and newcomers Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews. Exciting! Personally I will miss Santino Rice's snarly angst, but he's had a good run. More exciting: The announced guest judges this season are pretty thrilling. Kathy Griffin is back along with Olivia Newton-John, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, and John Waters. Pretty damn smashing. But before season seven gets under way, let's make sure to proclaim which celebrities Still need to join RuPaul and criticize the fabulous dames of his runway. 1. Tim Gunn Here's my problem with Tim Gunn on "Project Runway": I truly believe he is holding back. He comes from a distinguished academic background and taught at Parsons for years. He knows biting, incisive criticism. Not that he goes easy on "Project Runway" contestants, but he could certainly be grimmer and more subversive. »

Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan will consolidate his position as the king of social media by recording a record-breaking podcast for the Apple’s Meet The Filmmaker series at their flagship store in central London today, on January 28.
The actor, who has arguably the biggest presence on social media out of all the Indian movie stars, will record a podcast for his soon to be released movie Shamitabh. It will be made available to more than 800 million iTunes users around the world for free.
This is only the third ever Bollywood podcast that Apple have included in the popular series. The first saw Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra get interviewed for Krrish 3 and second had Vishal Bhardwaj and Shahid Kapoor talking about their movie Haider. The Shamitabh podcast with Amitabh Bachchan would eclipse the previous two in terms of reach and will be the first time an Indian movie star has been interviewed solo. »

If there's something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?
Feig sent ghoulies and demons running for cover by tipping his all-female cast for the Ghostbusters reboot.
Aside from supernatural griping, Twitter had quite a fun time with the news that a whole new crew will be bustin' ghosts in the near future.
Digital Spy gathers the best reactions below:
Very excited for the female Ghostbusters but even more excited for Gay Caddyshack.

Bustin' has always made me feel good, but today more than ever. http://t.co/E85AoJYYz0

Notably, if you were casting a new Ghostbusters movie without any regard for gender, you couldn't get much funnier than those four humans.

"Lost in the Awards Rush" is a new weekly series Slackerwood is running during the awards season, to suggest lesser-known but excellent alternatives to popular frontrunners for big movie awards.
Upon its Broadway debut in 1987, Into the Woods was praised as an innovative, dark, bold and musically astounding work that, to this day, remains unequaled. Naturally, a movie version had to follow of this re-imagining of classic fairy tales and what happens after "happily ever after." Though there were plans for a Rob Reiner-directed movie adaptation featuring Cher, Goldie Hawn, Elijah Wood and Robin Williams in the early '90s, that sadly fell apart -- the notion of bringing a project so well regarded and towering in both story and scope seemed virtually impossible.
Enter Rob Marshall, who successfully brought Chicago (2002) (another seemingly un-adaptable Broadway sensation) to the screen and had set out to work similar wonders with what »

Forget December: This is truly the most wonderful time of the year, provided you're a movie nut. (And if you aren't... uh, what are you doing here, buddy?) Oscar season is a joyous occasion marked by nail-biting anticipation, spirited debate (Boyhood or Birdman?), many, many sparkly things—and, for the truly devoted, friendly little competitions about who knows the most Oscar-related trivia. Thankfully, EW has your back. In our Oscar nominations double issue, we crunched the numbers to give you a few fun stats about four major categories—Best Picture, Actor, Actress, and Supporting Actor—as well as one special »

Manuel here to offer some random box office facts about the acting races. The big Oscar box office story continues to be American Sniper’s unprecedented success, so much so that Bradley Cooper garnered a shoutout last night at the SAG Awards despite not being nominated. I’m starting to feel the Best Picture category might not be the only three-way race as we wade deeper into Phase 2. Numbers and statistics junkie that I imagine myself to be, I was curious to see whether the past fifteen years’ worth of box office numbers in the acting categories could help us gleam anything about potential outcomes. Spoiler alert: not much, but enjoy the following random tidbits below.
As it stands, Bradley, Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall (improbably, really) and Meryl Streep hold the title as the highest grossing nominees from their respective races. How might this help Bradley; well, let's take a »

This story first appeared in the Feb. 6 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Katharine Hepburn holds the record for winning the most acting Oscars — four — but among contemporary actors, Meryl Streep is the gold standard. Not only has she won three Oscars (best actress for 1982's Sophie's Choice and 2011's The Iron Lady, best supporting actress for 1979's Kramer vs. Kramer), but she also has received more acting nominations, 19, than anyone else in Academy history.

Naomi Watts took a little trip on stage at the SAG Awards. Viola Davis gave a moving acceptance speech that went will go down into awards show history for its powerfully packed emotion and message. And Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello made our brains explode every time the cameras caught their crazy hotness. But there was a lot more to see than just that. Here, I give you five things you didn't see on TV at the 2015 SAG Awards… 1. Into the Prisons: How amazing would it be to see Meryl Streep behind bars? After several cast members of Orange Is the New Black stopped by the acting legend's table to introduce themselves and snag a photo, Ms. Streep playfully announced, "Next season of Orange »
Paris — Sean Penn is set to receive an honorary Cesar award in Paris during the 40th edition of the ceremony on Feb. 20.
“A mythical actor, an activist and an exceptional director, Sean Penn is a unique icon of American cinema. A living legend,” declared the Cesar Academie, France’s equivalent to the Oscars.
Penn has always enjoyed great popularity in France as an actor and a director. Nick Cassavetes’ “She’s So Lovely” earned him a best actor nod in Cannes, and the last film he directed, “Into the Wild,” was an arthouse hit in France. Penn served as president of Cannes Film Festival’s jury in 2008.
The actor, who won two Oscars for his performances in Clint Eastwood’s “Mystic River” and Gus Van Sant’s “Milk,” will next star in “Gunman,” Studiocanal’s high-voltage thriller directed by French helmer Pierre Morel. It will be released in March in the U. »

Over the past two decades, and the last 15 years in particular, Colleen Atwood has cemented herself as one of Hollywood's leading costume designers. She's earned three Oscars and is continually sought after by many leading directors to design threads for a variety of time periods and genres. With "Into the Woods," she has once again reunited with Rob Marshall for an inimitable blend of period and fantasy. HitFix recently spoke the Atwood, who picked up her 11th Oscar nomination for the film earlier this month. Read through the back and forth below. "Into the Woods" is now playing in theaters. *** HitFix: You clearly had to create many iconic characters for this film. Is that intimidating at all? Colleen Atwood: It was totally intimidating and not only creating them but creating them together in the same movie! Like, everybody is iconic, but it sort of flowed once I started. I started with the witch. »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!
"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.
My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!
Last night saw the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards take place. The elite members of both film and television arrived in their finery to see who had won the coverted statues. Eddie Redmayne did the UK proud as he picked up the award for Best Actor. Meanwhile Julianne Moore added another trophy to her cabinet for her performance in Still Alice and Birdman took home the big award for cast in a motion picture.
Highlights from the television portion include Orange is the New Black scooping two awards and our very own Downton Abbey getting the ensemble cast prize. Read the full winners below, did your favourite win? Are these results an indicator of how the BAFTA’s and Oscar‘s might play out?

Amongst this years Screen Actors Guild Award winners are Eddie Redmayne, who won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Birdman, which took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Orange Is the New Black, whose star Uzo Uduba claimed the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category.
Redmayne, dedicated his award to sufferers of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), the illness which Hawking himself suffers from. He also went on to congratulate fellow actors such as Bradley Cooper, David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall.
It has been a big weekend for Birdman, which not only won best ensemble »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »
