6 'Cinderella' Clips Feature Richard Madden & Lily James

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ella (Lily James) meets the dashing prince Kit (Richard Madden) in the first of six new clips from Disney's Cinderella. The second clip shows how Ella suddenly became Cinderella, thanks to the "clever" observations of her stepsisters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera), while her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) denies her a place at the table. We also see Ella's first meeting with Anastasia and Drisella, Kit telling Captain (Nonso Anozie) that he can't stop thinking about Ella, Kit and Ella's dance at the ball, and the Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) telling Ella that the spell will be broken at midnight.

When Ella's father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, »

Disney’s Frozen Fever Trailer Reunites Our Favorite Frozen Characters

25 February 2015 10:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Never let it be said that the Disney Corporation has failed to master the art of marketing. Although a full-length Frozen sequel is not yet on the way, Disney has decided to append a short film, Frozen Fever, to the beginning of its upcoming Cinderella. With a return to Arendelle and the now beloved characters that inhabit it, Disney has practically guaranteed that Cinderella will have a strong opening weekend. Plus, we do have to admit: the trailer for the short does make it look enticing.

Frozen Fever features a return of our favorite characters from Frozen as they prepare to throw Anna (Kristen Bell) a birthday party. Preparations are underway with the help of Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), but then Elsa (Idina Menzel) gets a cold and her powers get a wee bit out of control. It’s a cute little plot and has a cute little trailer featuring Olaf »

The Hot Oscars Parties You May Have Missed

25 February 2015 3:40 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

The Oscars party doesn't wait for Sunday to start! Last weekend, Julianne Moore and Olivia Munn caught up at the Still Alice and Grey Goose bash, and Matt Bomer and Chris Pine teased everyone with their hot looks at Armani and Cate Blanchett's event. Over at the Chanel and Charles Finch dinner, Kristen Stewart went all-out glam, and Keira Knightley had that pregnancy glow next to her husband, James Righton. Earlier last week, Leonardo DiCaprio chatted up Oprah Winfrey at an event for the documentary Virunga, and Nicole Kidman and Chris Evans hit up the Gold Meets Golden bash. Other star-studded fêtes have brought together dynamic duos like Kate Hudson and Gladys Knight, Kerry Washington and Alfre Woodard, and Zoe Saldana and Rosario Dawson - and this all happened before the big show! »

Oscars 2015: Watch Michael Keaton Tuck Something in His Jacket After Eddie Redmayne Wins (Video)

24 February 2015 9:19 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This year's best actor Oscar race was a close one, with pundits saying it was a tight competition between Michael Keaton and Eddie Redmayne and they weren't entirely sure who would win. Still, many of the experts, including The Hollywood Reporter's own Scott Feinberg, gave the edge to Redmayne. And ultimately Redmayne pulled out the win. But it wouldn't be unusual if Michael Keaton was prepared to hear his name called by Cate Blanchett. And, if you look closely at the clip of Redmayne being announced as the winner, and taking the stage, it looks like Keaton had a speech

Michael Keaton putting his speech away as Redmayne wins the Oscar is the saddest video

24 February 2015 2:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Part of us really wanted Michael Keaton to win the Best Actor Oscar for his brilliant and comedic turn in Birdman, and it would appear that a lot of Keaton thought he was going to at the ceremony on Sunday (February 22).

Two days after the ceremony, a Vine purporting to show the actor putting his acceptance speech back inside his jacket as Cate Blanchett announced Eddie Redmayne as the winner has emerged online.

It shows the tuxedo-clad star hurriedly tucking a piece of paper into his breast pocket before joining the rest of audience in giving Redmayne - who won the Oscar for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything - a rapturous round of applause and standing ovation.

Birdman went on to win four awards on the night, including Best Director for Alejandro González Iñárritu and Best Picture.

Oscars Bling: Real Housewives of Miami's Lea Black Rates the Best and Worst Jewelry Looks!

23 February 2015 5:10 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The only thing brighter than the celebrities' smiles at last night's Oscars was the jewelry! The red carpet was lit up by celebs sporting some major bling. And that caught the attention of The Real Housewives of Miami star Lea Black, who was ready to offer an opinion. From Zoe Saldana's $1 million worth of Neil Lane diamonds to Nicole Kidman wearing nearly $7 million worth in gems, all that bling meant that no star was safe from Black's judgment. So without further ado, here is Black's verdict on the night's best and worst jewelry looks... Black called Cate Blanchett's statement necklace a "shame!" "What a missed »

Eddie Redmayne Spent a "Lovely" Oscars Weekend With "Old Friends" Tom Sturridge and Sienna Miller

23 February 2015 1:50 PM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Source: Getty / Kevin Winter Eddie Redmayne won the best actor Oscar for his work in The Theory of Everything at the Academy Awards in La on Sunday, and it was clear in his acceptance speech how excited he was about the honor. Surprisingly, though, the award wasn't the main thing going through his mind as he took the stage. Eddie shared in the press room after the show that one of the more exciting elements of the win was "the fact that Cate Blanchett was giving it." He added: "I did a film called Elizabeth: The Golden Age with Cate, and it was one of the first films I did. I think she's such an exceptional actor, so I was recovering from that excitement of seeing her and then just trying to bury all this frenzy of nerves and white noise and trying to speak articulately, and of course you then forget everything. »

Inside Vanity Fair’s Oscar Party: Beyonce, Cumberbatch and In-n-Out

23 February 2015 1:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s plenty of elbow rubbing in Hollywood, but nothing compares to the amount of touching between famous people that occurs at the Vanity Fair Oscars party. Benedict Cumberbatch started early in the night, when he lounged at the bar with a martini, and gently rubbed the belly of his pregnant wife, Sophie Hunter. Then J.J. Abrams walked up to Cumberbatch and gave him a big hug. Abrams leaned forward and brushed the actor’s cheek, while Cumberbatch put his hand on Abram’s shoulder — and at some point, a misguided fan (or “Cumberbitch,” as they’re often called) tried to interrupt Cumberbatch for a photo. “I’m in the middle of talking to some friends, so sorry,” the Oscar-nominated star of “The Imitation Game” told his groupie.

Cumberbatch and Abrams chatted for a few minutes, until the conversation turned to the actor’s next big project: his first-born child. »

Eddie Redmayne may have taken his wife as his date to the Oscars, but she wasn't the only woman who had his heart racing on Sunday. The newly minted Academy Award winner was visibly flustered as he gave his acceptance speech for Best Actor, but it was not just because he was surprised about his big win. "I mean, the fact that it was Cate Blanchett giving it," the Theory of Everything star told reporters backstage at the awards show.

Oscars 2015: The alternative winners, from best accessory to creepiest attendee

23 February 2015 11:51 AM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Best accessory: Benedict Cumberbatch's hipflask

Forget Cate Blanchett's statement Tiffany turquoise necklace; with the ceremony's running time of more than four hours, surely the finest accessory of the evening was the Best Actor nominee's hipflask which he flashed to the camera during Neal Patrick Harris's opening skit. You can't blame him for wanting to be drunk; after all, the evening included a performance from Adam Levine. Great shout, Sherlock. »

Tim McGraw's Tribute to Glen Campbell Tops List of Trending Oscars Moments

23 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

There were plenty of big, buzzy moments during Sunday's Oscars. But it was a quiet, heartfelt tribute that became the top trending moment of the night. Tim McGraw took the stage and sang a spare, emotional version of Glen Campbell's Oscar-nominated song "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" - filling in for Campbell himself, who was unable to attend due to his deteriorating health. Searches for "Glen Campbell" spiked some 211 times, more than any other name associated with the broadcast, according to Google. The country legend, 78, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011 and was moved into a memory care facility »

Eddie Redmayne Wins Best Actor at the 2015 Oscars, Could Not Be More Humble, Grateful and Adorable in His Speech

Eddie Redmayne has done it. Despite trading off with Michael Keaton here and there through awards season, the British star of The Theory of Everything was the last man standing tonight, Oscar night. He notched the Best Actor win for channeling physicist Stephen Hawking and couldn't have been more gracious and positively adorable up on that stage. First, of course, wife Hannah Bagshawe scored the kiss of the night, and then presenter Cate Blanchett got a pretty grand-looking hug. By the time he started talking, he was beaming with emotion and we couldn't have been happier for him. "Thank you, thank you," he began. "Thank you to the Academy. I don't think I'm »

Reese Witherspoon on #AskHerMore at Oscars: ‘We’re More Than Just Our Dresses’

22 February 2015 6:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“This is a movement to say we’re more than just our dresses,” said Reese Witherspoon at the 87th Academy Awards about the #AskHerMore campaign, which encourages red-carpet reporters to go beyond fashion and focus on the work of actresses as well as behind-the-camera talent.

The Representation Project, which sprang out of the documentary “Miss Representation,” launched the campaign in 2014 by using the hashtag #AskHerMore on Twitter, urging reporters to ask actresses more substantial questions, rather than the classic awards season question “Who are you wearing?”

The hashtag was trending throughout the Oscars red-carpet show on Sunday night.

“Reporters often focus more on a woman’s appearance than what she has accomplished,” said a blog post on the organization’s website.

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls website has also supported the movement to focus on more substantial questions, while several websites offered sample questions for reporters.
