Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters

12 July 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The old saying goes is that if you want to win an Academy Award then the best way is to undertake playing a disabled part or portraying a famous personality in a biopic. In some cases, actors have accomplished both themes and reached their Oscar-attaining goals (see Patty Duke in The Miracle Worker or Daniel-Day Lewis in My Left Foot for instance).

In Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters we will look at the top movie characters that became Academy Award-winning figures within their films. Interestingly, there have been a couple of performers that were real-life disabled individuals that convincingly embodied their fictional disabled alter egos (see Harold Russell from The Best Days of Our Lives or Marlee Matlin from Children of a Lesser God).

Anyway, this selection of Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters are (in alphabetical order according to film title): »

Wondercon 2014: Falling Skies season 4 interview

22 June 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Laura and Chris chat to Doug Jones, Sarah Carter, Moon Bloodgood, and Seychelle Gabriel about Falling Skies season 4...

Interview

Falling Skies started its fourth season with an episode that turned everything on its head. Actors Sarah Carter, Doug Jones, Moon Bloodgood, and Seychelle Gabriel sat down with us at this year’s Wondercon to let us in on what else this season holds.

So what is going on with Maggie this season?

Sarah Carter: This season, things get very dramatic for Maggie mainly because, when the next season starts off, we are all separated and so there is a lot of time where Hal and Maggie are not together and a love triangle ensues--which I was so shocked by when I read [it]--and obviously I have mixed feelings [about it]. So I am looking forward and I am nervous, actually, what fans are going to think this season because I was »

Here's Your First Look at the 'Rosemary's Baby' TV Remake (Photo)

20 March 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A remake of "Rosemary's Baby," Roman Polanski's chilling masterpiece of otherworldly dread, isn't the worst idea ever (but it is close).

When NBC announced they were remaking the movie as a miniseries, we were at the very least intrigued: at least it wouldn't be some clumsy, shot-for-shot theatrical job like last fall's abysmal "Carrie" remake. Our interest was piqued further when it was announced that Zoe Saldana would be playing Rosemary, the woman whose closest friends and family conspire to have her give birth to the antichrist. But with the first piece of promo art released by NBC (courtesy of the Daily News), our excitement has been decidedly lessened.

This piece of promo art features Saldana standing in front of a baby carriage. Is this supposed to be after she has the baby? Also, is that a wig?

We're getting flashbacks to 1976's "Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby, »

Style 180! Taylor Swift and Lorde Go From Catholic School Girls to Goth Goddesses

10 March 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"They laugh alike, they walk alike, At times they even talk alike!"  Though in Taylor Swift and Lorde's case the old Patty Duke Show song needs a re-write. Something about jet-setting and dressing alike? We'll get back to you with lyrics the next time these two step out looking like fraternal fashion twins.  For now, we're focused on the major style pivot that the "Trouble" singer and her "Tennis Court" crooning bestie made since the last time we saw them flitting about together. We called that outing "hookie from Catholic school" but this one looks more like "smoke break on The Craft set!" The singing starlets went from pale shirts and dark bottoms, on a »

The 10 Most Fabulous Best Supporting Actress Oscar Wins

28 February 2014 8:15 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m whipped into a cackling fugue state about the Oscars. I’m in love with the damn Oscars. In fact, I’m suspicious of people who don’t love the Oscars. And here we are with my favorite Oscar countdown to date: the 10 most fabulous Best Supporting Actress-winning performances. Keep in mind this isn’t the same thing as the 10 best Best Supporting Actress performances. I wrote that list years ago and declared Sandy Dennis, Patty Duke, Cloris Leachman, Meryl Streep, and Kim Hunter the supreme supporting ladies. My feelings have not changed. But it’s time to honor the fabulous performances, the supporting actresses who bring whizzbang, panache, sexual superiority, and fun to an occasionally dour category. Here are the 10 most fab winners of my favorite Oscar.

Oscars by the Numbers: 33 Fascinating Academy Awards Statistics

28 February 2014 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Unless you're prediction-loving, number-crunching wizard Nate Silver, you probably find statistics pretty boring. But stats concerning the Academy Awards have always been fascinating, mostly because the Oscars are just plain weird, and riddled with anomalies.

The ceremony got its start in the late 1920s, when movies were just making their transition into sound, and early nominees and categories reflected the sheer chaos of those halcyon days of what would eventually become Hollywood's golden age. (Though, of course, any film aficionado worth his/her salt would have a strong opinion about the exact dates that that age entailed.)

As the Oscars tradition continued, the awards became a bit more traditional themselves, settling into a predictable pattern of narratives that have stayed relatively consistent to this day. But there are always idiosyncrasies hiding in the woodwork, and the Academy Awards have them in spades. Here, we've collected some of the most distinctive »

"Valley of the Dolls" Remake Coming?

31 January 2014 6:19 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In perhaps the strangest casting rumor of the year so far, the likes of Madonna, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway and Emmy Rossum are all said to be up for roles in a new darkly comedic adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's novel "Valley of the Dolls" for 20th Century Fox.

The book spans two decades and covers the career highs and ultimate self-destruction of three female best friends: Anne Welles, who works at a Broadway talent agency; Neely O’Hara, a vaudeville star; and Jennifer North, a showgirl. The title refers to the barbiturates (sleeping pills) they all become addicted to.

An instant success, 'Dolls' has sold more than 30 million copies and essentially gave birth to the modern genre of female authors (like Jackie Collins) who write sexually scandalous stories in the roman-a-clef style - telling the stories of real-life rich and famous people under the guise of fiction.
