What a difference a week makes. Once considered a long shot for an Oscar nom, Jennifer Aniston has now received the holy trifecta — nominations for best actress from SAG, Golden Globe and the Critics’ Choice Awards. An Oscar nomination seems more and more likely.
It’s all the more impressive that Aniston has received such attention for a small independent film. In “Cake,” written by first-time screenwriter Patrick Tobin and directed by Daniel Barnz, she plays Claire Simmons, a woman who suffers from chronic pain and becomes obsessed with learning more about a member of her support group who committed suicide. Aniston has never been given such a meaty role on the bigscreen before, and she rewards the filmmakers’ gamble with a beautiful, heartfelt performance.
Aniston has made a lot of progress in a short time in the race and will likely continue. There are so many factors that go »

Well it’s that time of year again – the one where websites across the globe churn out Top 10 list after top ten list. So why should we be any different?! Yet whilst we may be following the predictable end of year lists, I can guarantee that my list is anything but predictable, featuring films from across the globe: including the Us, Canada, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and even good old Blighty!
This year more than ever there has been film after film that knocked it out of the park for me – which is why my Top 10 list has Two sections: the Top 10 and then the pick of 35(!) more brilliant movies (I would have loved this list to be a Top 45, honestly). So what’s my criteria? Well it has to be a movie I’ve seen this year, one that was released this year, i.e. making its UK debut, »

“Extant,” starring Halle Berry, brought a futuristic view of America to life on CBS, and now the sci-fi thriller’s first season is preparing for its DVD and Blu-ray release Dec. 16 from CBS Home Entertainment. The show, which has been hailed as “smart and engrossing” by the Associated Press, comes from executive producer Steven Spielberg and tells the story about an astronaut who has to reconnect with her family after her year in space. But it’s the events she’s lived through while in space that will change the trajectory of the world’s future forever. “Extant: The First Season” will consist of four discs containing every episode in the premiere season.

Last summer, over 8 million people tuned in to watch Academy Award-winner Halle Berry try to unravel her missing memories in the futuristic thriller “Extant.” When astronaut Molly Woods (Berry) returns home from a year-long space mission, she finds it difficult to reconnect with her husband John (Goran Visnjic) and their uncanny valley defying robot son Ethan (Pierce Gagnon). Oh, and she’s immaculately pregnant with what might be an alien baby. So there’s that. As Molly struggles to come to grips with her home life and unexpected pregnancy, things begin to fall apart at work when it becomes clear she wasn’t the only one who had a mysterious space visitor. When CBS and Amblin Entertainment set out to create the world of “Extant,” it was imperative the world looked both familiar and alien at the same time. As if the future were right around the corner and yet »

Back in early November, a number of actresses and actors were reportedly on a short list to play younger versions of Jean Grey and Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse. 20th Century Fox also plans on recasting Storm in this latest mutant adventure, but until now, we haven't heard that anyone was up for the role. Today, MoviePilot claims, in what might be nothing more than pure speculation, that The Vampire Diaries star Katerina 'Kat' Graham is up for the role.
Halle Berry originated the role of Ororo Munroe, better known as Storm, in the original 2000 X-Men, and went onto reprise the character in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and this past summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now, she is being replaced by a younger actor, as the story takes place in the 1980s. At this time, the studio has not commented on this potential casting, and this »
With the upcoming X-Men: Age of Apocalypse film set to introduce younger versions of some of the original X-Men characters, speculation on the casting of Storm has been up in the air. The latest rumor is that X-Men.s Storm will be played by The Vampire Diaries star, Kat Graham. If this rumor (via MoviePilot) turns out to be true, I couldn.t be more excited. Kat Graham has the capacity to play an incredible Storm. Not only is she gorgeous and can easily pull off looking like a younger version of Halle Berry, but also, her role as Bonnie Bennett on the CW series The Vampire Diaries is the perfect preparation for playing a badass super-powered female. And Storm is just that, a badass, powerful woman.and actually my personal favorite comic book hero. Storm, or real name Orora Munroe, has the power to control the weather. With this »
Halle Berry reportedly ordered for her daughter's hair to be forensically tested. The 'Extant' actress - who is in the middle of a bitter divorce from Gabriel Aubry - has accused her former partner of bleaching their child's hair. According to gossip website TMZ, Halle had strands of hair from 6-year-old Nahla's hairbrush sent off to Microtrace, a forensic consulting laboratory. Papers submitted to the court by the 48-year-old actress reportedly state that the company concluded that the hair had ''extensive damage ... [which is] likely the cumulative effect of repeated exposure to numerous gentle bleaching treatments''. Gabriel denied that he was straightening and lightening her hair using chemicals and defended the lighter colour, insisting it was just from spending time in the sun. The judge is believed to have ruled that neither of Nahla's parents were allowed to change her hair. Meanwhile, a recent report alleges that Halle wants to »

Black to Basics: Binder’s Safely Bland Racial Message Movie
The latest film from actor/director/screenwriter Mike Binder, Black or White presents us with the possibility of truthfully representing the severe racial issues still plaguing our apathetic culture, inclined towards the sanitization of such topics in order to adhere to the restrictive umbrella of the politically correct. Unfortunately, Binder drops the ball, opting for a safe portrayal declawed of volatility because it presents us with a dichotomy told entirely through the lens of privileged perspective, when it could have been much more powerful in reverse or even with a hedged juxtaposition. Several well-meaning and even genuinely moving performances save the title from complete dismissal, but Binder’s film aims to assuage middle-class white American guilt rather than expose a lack of acknowledgment concerning the difference of others. Worse, he doesn’t bother to provide equal agency for both ‘sides. »

Consider that country legend June Carter Cash’s own life story could have made an equally if even more compelling big-screen saga than that of husband Johnny Cash – one that was eventually told in a not-bad TV movie starring singer Jewel. But for every “Coal Miner’s Daughter” that made it to the big screen, Hollywood has optioned countless true-life accounts of great men that went on to compete in the Academy Award race – including “Walk the Line.” At least Witherspoon’s co-lead status opposite Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic Man in Black was acknowledged, unlike supporting winners such as Jennifer Connelly in “A Beautiful Mind” and Marcia Gay Harden in “Pollock,” who clearly were the main female stars of their films. Then again, Witherspoon's gold trophy appears to have done more harm than good as far as post-Oscar opportunities go. Much like previous best-actress winners Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman and Hilary Swank, »

After seeing Jada Pinkett Smith's 61-year-old mom in a bikini, you'll wanna renew that gym membership -- or pray to the aging gods that you'll end up like this.
The Gotham actress shared a Facebook photo of her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, coming out of the water like a James Bond girl (think Halle Berry in Die Another Day). Jada, 43, captioned the jaw-dropping bikini shot, writing: "Willow took this shot of her grandmother, my mother, emerging from the ocean today. She is 61!"

If Oprah Winfrey was giving out free haircuts, this year she'd be like: "You get a bob and you get a bob! Everyone gets a bob!" Yes, 2014 was the tipping point of chin-length crops in Hollywood. From January through December over 30 celebrities debuted brand-new bob haircuts—and that's not including the lob styles. Most recently, Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale, Sienna Miller and Halle Berry joined the short hair club. But let's not forget the year of the bob was kicked off during awards season by stars like Kate Mara, Emma Roberts and Jennifer Lawrence. So before the year wraps up and before these stars grow out their locks (or opt for a some extensions), let's look back at all the »

Last year’s Oscar ceremony made history when director Steve McQueen became the first black filmmaker to win for best picture with 12 Years a Slave and Alfonso Cuaron became the first Latin American to win for best director with Gravity. This year’s ceremony could make history as well: Ava DuVernay could become the first black female to be nominated for best director for Selma, and if Angelina Jolie lands a nomination for Unbroken, it will be the first time two women are nominated in the same year.
In 2012, DuVernay became the first black woman to win for best director at the Sundance Film Festival with Middle of Nowhere.
Lee & Low Books found that 99 percent of best director winners are male and 99 percent of best actress winners are white (93 percent of best actor winners are also white).
