Nominations are in for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, and leading the way overall was "The Fault in Our Stars," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Neighbors" with seven mentions each. Little surprise, that, given the demographic, but at the same time, it's a relatively inspired (as far as it goes) mish-mash of consumer and prestige work across the board. "American Sniper," "Boyhood," "Selma" and "Whiplash" doubled up on their Best Picture fortunes from the Academy by landing in the Movie of the Year category. There they are joined by "Fault," "Gone Girl" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." Other Oscar nominees who found room include Bradley Cooper, Rosamund Pike (three nominations), J.K. Simmons, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon. "Whiplash," in particular, had a heartening showing. Miles Teller landed in the Best Male Performance category, and also picked up Best Wtf Moment and Best Musical Moment nods. And though it's no »

Only a couple hours after I ask if anyone expected films such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Transformers: Age of Extinction or Maleficent to receive Oscar nominations for Best Picture do we receive the 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations wherein two of those films actually do get nominations along with the likes of Gone Girl and The Fault in Our Stars as the two other "Movie of the Year" nominees that didn't make the Academy's cut. Oscar Best Picture winner Birdman was not nominated for Movie of the Year, but Emma Stone did receive a nomination as did Edward Norton and Michael Keaton for Best Fight. When it comes to overall tallies, it's Guardians of the Galaxy, Neighbors and The Fault in Our Stars leading all nominees with seven each. The »

Don’t roll up that red carpet just yet. Awards season still has one more ceremony to get through: The 2015 MTV Movie Awards hosted by Amy Schumer.
The network’s annual ceremony typically honors a mix of award-bait films and fan favorites of the past year. And this year is no different with Oscar winners, Birdman and Whiplash, nominated alongside Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars. The latter two actually garnered seven nominations each. The two films tied with Neighbors for the most potential wins.
Other standouts include Gone Girl, which earned a lot of attention for Rosamund Pike’s turn as a scorned housewife Amy Elliott, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is getting love for Jennifer Lawrence’s much loved musical moment.
Unlike the Golden Globes or the Oscars, fans get to decide who takes home the golden »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Movies On Demand. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today's selection is this year's Best Picture winner, "Birdman." This interview was first published last fall.] Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" is an actor's showcase for star Michael Keaton, who delivers a comeback performance for the ages as former action star who mounts a Broadway production to revive his ailing career. But as is the case with all of the Mexican filmmaker's work, his supporting cast is also given ample moments to shine. In "Birdman," Edward Norton nearly walks away with the picture as Mike Shiner, an egomaniacal Broadway star Keaton's character is forced to work with when one of his play's stars suffers an onstage injury. The role marks Norton's best one in ages and the actor tears into it, delivering a »

The awards season may be over following the February 22 Oscar ceremony, but that doesn't mean we have to stop talking about the films and their performances. "Birdman" won Best Picture, making it an ideal time to watch star Michael Keaton talk in-depth about what it was like to film "Birdman" and his role. The Golden Globe, Gotham and Critics Choice Award winner (among others) took awards season by storm with a likable personality and humor which he demonstrates in this interview. During the nearly hour-long interview with New York Times culture reporter Cara Buckley, Keaton talks about working with co-stars such as Edward Norton, the comparisons between the film and his real-life career, Batman and many other topics. Watch the entire TimesTalk below. Read More: Michael Keaton Dug Deep to Deliver the Best Performance on His Career in 'Birdman' »

Getting people to care about America's failing bridges and dams isn't an easy feat, as John Oliver spent 20 minutes noting in Sunday's Last Week Tonight. But if anyone can make potholes sexy, it's John Oliver, which he proved with the world's first summer blockbuster about the "importance of routine maintenance and repair." Fast forward to 17:44 to watch Infrastructure, starring Edward Norton and a cameo that's too good to spoil. »

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass horror movie arrives comatose (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') (See previous post: "'Focus': Will Smith Has One of Worst Opening Weekends of His Career.") Despite recent news that human head transplants are a mere two years away, the Mark Duplass-Olivia Wilde horror movie The Lazarus Effect – about bringing the dead back to life (as if world overpopulation weren't already a problem) – grossed $10.6 million from 2,666 U.S. and Canada venues on opening weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The Relativity Studios-distributed low-budget horror flick had earned an estimated $3.8 million on opening-day Friday, including $350,000 from Thursday night screenings. Last week, box-office prognosticators had been expecting an opening between $12-$14 million. That was adjusted downward to $10 million or whereabouts after the film's disappointing Friday debut.

James Franco is in talks to star in the 20th Century Fox comedy Why Him?, which will be produced by Shawn Levy's 21 Laps company and Ben Stiller's Red Hour Pictures. Both of the production companies are based on the 20th Century Fox lot.
The plot centers on a Midwestern father who takes his family on a trip to Stanford, to visit his daughter during the Christmas holiday. What started as an innocent family trip quickly spirals out of control, as the father gets into an unexpected competition with his daughter's new boyfriend, a young Internet billionaire. While Variety doesn't specify which role James Franco will play, it seems likely that he will portray the billionaire boyfriend.
John Hamburg (I Love You, Man, Along Came Polly) is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Nick Stoller (Neighbors, The Five-Year Engagement) and Ian Helfer (The Oranges). No production schedule was given at this time, »
Can we all agree that even though Birdman winning the Best Picture Oscar over Boyhood was a wee bit controversial, it was still a darn good movie? The camera work, the awesomely huge acting, the score...it was all phenomenal. And, that Edward Norton. Hot tamele. Excuse us while we fan girl out for a second. And, even better than simply going back to the theater over and over again for viewings, we can now take home our very own Birdman prop. And no, it's not Keaton's undies, you sickos—it's the military-style jacket worn by Edward Norton's character, Mike Shiner. According to Vogue, the story behind it all is this: The jacket is designed by the brand Osklen, and when Norton »
Michael Stevens For 'The Good':
"'Birdman' aka 'The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance' hurtles along as if in flight, with a single cinematic take, soaring over, under and around the inner demons haunting 'Riggan Thomson' (Michael Keaton) , a grizzled film actor turned stage director, eager to rebuild his reputation in the theater world ...
"...after famously portraying the iconic movie superhero 'Birdman'.
"The funny, clever script shows how vain, fragile and bird-brained actors can be, as they go through the hollow motions of life, when their true calling is in performance...
"...with a convincing ensemble cast, bopping along to a jittery jazz drum score by Antonio Sanchez...
"'Birdman' is a unique satirical feature, that kept me on the edge, »

It’s all a bit satirical. Or maybe not. Look, over there, Shakespeare in a superhero cape! I’m “biast” (pro): like the director, love the cast
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
It was one thing when Birdman was the scrappy little indie that could. (Never mind that it was an indie with a budget of $22 million and an A-list cast.) Then it was just a snooty pretentious film with an arty gimmick that hardly anyone had seen. But now it has been crowned as the very best movie of 2014 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science. The people who are the most Hollywood that people can be have officially spoken. And what they have said is, “We hate superhero movies. We hate the fans who make superhero movies huge. But we love your money, so thanks for that. »

Indeed, Hollywood’s dependence on films about costumed avengers was a source of derision and humor as the industry gathered to hand out statues and applaud the work of, mostly low-grossing, adult-oriented dramas. “The Avengers” may pay the bills, but off-kilter fare such as “Birdman” feeds the soul, Oscar voters implied.
“When something is that big in the industry, it’s going to be an easy target for Oscar jokes,” noted Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “It could indicate a general kind of weariness of these movies by talent, because they have been so popular.”
Gunn wrote that he didn’t take the jokes personally, but he did argue that the writing on the »

Taking home four Oscars out of its nine nominations, including Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay and Cinematography, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman was the big winner at this year’s Academy Awards. Premiering last August at the Venice Film Festival (where it left with trio of minor awards), cinematography has long been the awards season lock for the film (winning Lubezki a BAFTA), and it’s picked up a pair of Golden Globes (Screenplay and Actor) and a host of critic’s choice awards. Box office has also been profitable, opening last October in limited release before expanding nationwide Mid-November to successful box office results—its Best Picture win will most likely edge it over or close to the one hundred million mark.

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).
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.
