12 Comedic Performances the Oscars Overlooked

10 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Listen. We’re not necessarily saying the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doesn’t honor the greatest performances in film, but getting an audience to laugh can often be more difficult than getting them to cry. While there’ve been winners like Diane Keaton for “Annie Hall” and Marisa Tomei for “My Cousin Vinny,” they’re still the rare exceptions to the rule. Here’s to more Oscars for funny people! Below, we present twelve overlooked comedic film performances. Emily Blunt, “The Devil Wears Prada”Can you believe Blunt achieved instant-classic status as an acid-tongued assistant to Meryl Streep’s fashion mogul—serving devastating snark and the film’s most quotable one-liners—and didn’t get Oscar recognition for her comedic brilliance? “No, I shan’t.” Eddie Murphy, “Trading Places”Although the best work of Murphy’s career may be as the uproarious Donkey in “Shrek,” the Academy »

1 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG, for those who don’t know) did their best provide both questions and answers in regards to the Oscar race. On the one hand, much of what we suspected to the the Academy’s likely favorites remains as such, but on the other…there are certainly some potential upsets brewing. SAG was just one of the precursors over the weekend, as the Art Directors Guild and Ace Eddie announced their winners as well, which you can see below, but the SAG victors are what we’ll be focusing on today. So, let’s chat about that guild’s results! SAG managed to both clear up and confuse on Saturday. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson wrapped up their Oscar wins in Lead Acting categories, while Alicia Vikander likely became an unbeatable frontrunner as well in Best Supporting Actress. As for Best Supporting Actor, »

Yes, Ryan Gosling Was at the SAG Awards This Whole Time

30 January 2016 8:05 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

You were likely watching the SAG Awards on Saturday night, minding your own business, when all of a sudden Ryan Gosling graced the screen! The actor, who was sitting pretty with his The Big Short costars, skipped the red carpet and didn't hit the stage to present an award, either - so imagine our surprise when he was spotted clapping, smirking, and posing with other A-listers like Christian Bale and Eddie Redmayne in the audience and backstage. He also linked up with his former Crazy, Stupid, Love cohorts Julianne Moore and Marisa Tomei. It goes without saying that Ryan's ex Rachel McAdams also happened to be in the house; she presented an award on stage and also joined her Spotlight castmates when they won the honor for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.

'Spider-Man' Reboot and 'Jumanji' Get New 2017 Release Dates

20 January 2016 12:54 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures announces that it has set the release dates for Spider-Man and Jumanji, two of its most highly anticipated films, for key summer 2017 weekends. Spider-Man, on which Sony Pictures is teaming with Marvel, will be released on July 7, 2017, moving from the previous date of July 28, 2017. The live-action Spider-Man movie stars Tom Holland and will be directed by Jon Watts. In addition, moving into the open weekend of July 28, 2017, the studio will release the tentpole franchise film Jumanji, moving from the previous date of December 25, 2016.

Neither of these release date shifts are terribly surprising, but each was presumably made for a different reason. Earlier today, Disney shifted Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales out of its original July 7, 2017 release date, moving it to the May 26, 2017 slot vacated by Star Wars: Episode VIII. The Spider-Man reboot didn't have any direct competition in either its new or old release date, »

Second Opinion – The Big Short (2015)

20 January 2016 9:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Big Short, 2015.

Directed by Adam McKay.

Starring Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Brad Pitt, Finn Wittrock, Max Greenfield, Melissa Leo, Rafe Spall, Hamish Linklater, Tracy Letts, John Magaro, Jeremy Strong, Marissa Tomei, Karen Gillan, Stanley Wong, Byron Mann, Margot Robbie, and Selena Gomez.

 

Synopsis:

Four denizens of the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000’s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight.

Adam McKay at the Oscars you say? The same Adam McKay who helped introduce the world to Ron Burgundy, Mark Wahlberg being funny and the infamous and hilarious vocal styling of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s delightfully crude rendition of Boats and Hoes? One and the same. The rule usually states that comedians (actors, writers or directors) just don’t usually win the big prize, bar a few exceptions »

‘Empire’ Renewed for Season 3 at Fox

15 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Empire” has been renewed for Season 3 at Fox.

The no-brainer announcement was made Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., by chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, Dana Walden and Gary Newman.

As the top-rated show on television, “Empire’s” fate was a sure thing, but the Season 3 pickup marks an early renewal, further proving the faith Fox has in its breakout hit.

Though down from the peak ratings it saw late in its first season, “Empire” remained the top-rated broadcast series in adults 18-49 during the first half of its second season. In the fall it averaged a 7.3 rating in the demo and 17.7 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-7” estimates. It also ranks as the most-tweeted broadcast TV series.

The news comes days after Taraji P. Henson, who stars as the larger-than-life Cookie Lyon, won her first Golden Globe. Though the »
