Joshua Oppenheimer's study of 1960s Indonesian death squads wins best film, beating Oscar winner 12 Years a Slave
The Act of Killing has taken the top prize at the inaugural Guardian Film Awards.
Joshua Oppenheimer's surreal study of the Indonesian death squads of the 1960s was nominated in three fields – best director, biggest game-changer and best film.
Oppenheimer said of the recognition: "Artistically, it's a far more meaningful award to me than an Oscar."
The film – voted best film of 2013 by Guardian critics, and seventh best of the year by Guardian readers – was also strongly championed by the two external judges, Claudia Winkleman and Adam Curtis; the former calling it "one of the best films I've ever seen »

First commercial project to be shot in Palace of Westminster as Streep takes on role of Emmeline Pankhurst in Suffragette
Suffragette, from Brick Lane director Sarah Gavron and The Iron Lady screenwriter Abi Morgan, which features Streep as famed historical campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst, stars Mulligan as an early member of her Women's Social and Political Union. MPs have approved plans to film in the Palace of Westminster, a move which will bring in revenue and save producers the high cost of mocking up the chamber elsewhere.
"This unique location promises to attract more production to the capital, and by working with the industry and our partners, we will help ensure it can get the most out of filming, »

Emma Thompson has made her New York stage debut to critical acclaim but it will be over in a flash – there will be only five performances of her playing London's worst piemaker .
She plays Mrs Lovett and when she began the run on Wednesday she was following in some impressive footsteps. Angela Lansbury won a Tony after originating the role in 1979 and the character has been played in the West End by Sheila Hancock, Julia McKenzie and in 2012, Imelda Staunton.
So how did she do? Writing for the Guardian, Kayla Epstein said Thompson "not only held her own against more experienced vocalists, »

It’s no secret that Wes Anderson jam packs his films with Easter eggs that make watching his pics akin to embarking on a scavenger hunt. Just like you can discover something new with each viewing, there’s still much to learn about the enigmatic director and his bountiful film universes. With his eighth feature film, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” opening nationwide on Friday, here are 12 fun facts about Anderson and his movies.
Although he ultimately received a hefty chunk of the profits, Murray was only paid his SAG day rate to star in the 1998 film. In fact, Murray theoretically put up money for the gig. When Disney didn’t want to rent a helicopter to shoot the scene in Jason Schwartzman’s character Max’s Vietnam War-themed play, Murray offered to foot the $25,000-bill. The chopper shot was cut, but »

We all saw that Jennifer Lawrence brought her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, to the Oscars on Sunday, but he wasn't her only date. Jennifer's best friend, Laura Simpson, was along for the big night as well, and she shared an honest - and hilarious - account of what it was like to attend Hollywood's biggest event as a non-celebrity. We learned a few things while reading the article: You Don't See the Real Red Carpet on TV Highland (between Sunset and Hollywood) is filled with barricades with different entry points so no crazy person can plow their car through, killing everyone on the red carpet. Guarding each entry point through the barricades are men in head-to-toe camouflage with gigantic automatic weapons (rifles? I don't know guns). I try to take a photo of one, and I'm stopped immediately. Completely lining the sidewalks of Highland are the Jesus freaks. I am not »

"Grace of Monaco" was tipped to be a strong Oscar contender in 2013 but the Weinstein Company delayed its release till this spring. Watch the first trailer for the film below. The biopic stars Oscar winner Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, who left Hollywood behind in 1956 at the height of her career to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco. The film follows the pair during a crisis in their marriage in the early 1960s when the prince (played by Oscar nominee Tim Roth, "Rob Roy") could lose his land to France. This certainly looks like the perfect vehicle for Kidman to nab her second Best Actress trophy -- it’s a biopic that combines Old Hollywood lore with European royalty. -Break- She would be the second person in history to win for portraying a real-life Oscar winner; Cate Blanchett prevailed in the supporting race in 2004 for playing four-time Best Actress champ Katharine Hepburn in “The Aviator. »

Cate Blanchett Gets Tattoo After Oscars
Blanchett, 44, visited the Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlor with her close friend and fellow 2014 Best Actress in a Leading Role nominee Amy Adams. Both Blanchett and Adams' significant others – Andrew Upton and Darren Le Gallo – came along as well.
While it was clear that both Blanchett and Le Gallo had bandages likely stemming from some new ink, it’s uncertain as to whether Adams or Upton opted to get tattoos.
Blanchett previously won a Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar for her work in The Aviator opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. Since this was her first leading role win, it’s possible she got a tattoo to commemorate the victory. »

We're almost done! Only 35 more Oscar posts before w--- No for reals though we have to talk about fashion at least briefly. There sure was a lot of granny froufrou beading fussy texture on trend this year, huh? Which works on some people but not everyone. And weirdly it doesn't work at first and then totally works by the end of the evenin on some people. By some people I mean the happy Blue Jasmine twosome, whose gowns worked really well once you saw them all snuggly together in their seats.

Lupita Nyong’o‘s Cinderella story culminated with a win for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars on Sunday night, and now she’s just reaping the benefits of being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

Now that she’s enjoying some well-deserved time off that hasn’t changed, only her selfie co-stars have transitioned from Cate Blanchett and Julia Roberts to stylish It Girls like Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux (of Blue Is the Warmest Color), Margot Robbie and Elizabeth Olsen.

Cate Blanchett celebrated her Best Actress Oscars win in unique fashion: heading to a tattoo parlor with her husband Andrew Upton, fellow nominee Amy Adams and her fiancé Darren Le Gallo. The smiling and animated group was spotted outside of the Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlor in West Hollywood on Monday morning. The Blue Jasmine star and the American Hustle actress' beau have clearly visible post-tattoo bandages; Blanchett's on the left wrist and Le Gallo's on the right forearm. It's unclear if the tattoos are coordinated, or if Adams and Upton got some fresh ink. The night before, Blanchett won her second golden statuette for her role as a spoiled New York socialite »
