“That Guy” Actor of the Day: Michael J. Pollard

1 April 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For no reason whatsoever I was just thinking about the movie Tango and Cash.  Hey, these things happen, and it’s not like that’s a bad movie to think about.  It was amazing.  But you know who my favorite character in that movie is?  Owen.  Owen’s the weird scientist guy who comes up with all the fancy weapons and the sick car Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone use to bust up Jack Palance’s criminal headquarters at the end.   The guy who plays Owen is Michael J. Pollard. If you’ve ever seen Scrooged, he’s plays the homeless guy who gets frozen.   The

Hollywood and Las Vegas: The Perfect Movie Relationship

16 March 2017 6:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s not many places on Earth more bright, glitzy and glamorous than Las Vegas. With its famous shows, many casinos and constant parties, it’s no surprise that the city in the desert is popular with Hollywood and the film industry. Situated just 263 miles east of Los Angeles and the film community, Vegas has attracted the attention of movie producers for decades.

Founded in 1905, not too long after the birth of the movie industry itself, the City Of Las Vegas first appeared in a motion picture in 1952. The film was The Las Vegas Story, a Howard Hughes production starring Jane Russell and Victor Mature that was a suspenseful thriller involving murder and intrigue. It was quickly followed by the likes of Crashing Las Vegas and Meet Me In Las Vegas a few years later, but it was the arrival of the 1960 Rat Pack film Ocean’s 11 which really united »

The Marisa Tomei Oscars Conspiracy That's Fascinated Hollywood For Decades

2 March 2017 2:15 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

For anyone who watched the Academy Awards on Sunday, the jaw-dropping best picture mix-up for La La Land and Moonlight might have brought to mind a long-circulated Oscars conspiracy regarding Marisa Tomei. Although the two events aren't exactly alike, it's no wonder connections between the 2017 ceremony and a moment at the awards all the way back in 1993 are being drawn. At the 65th Annual Academy Awards, Tomei took the stage to accept the Oscar for best supporting actress from presenter Jack Palance thanks to her work in My Cousin Vinny. Elated and giggly, she celebrated other Hollywood actresses in her speech, profusely thanked costar Joe Pesci, proceeded to the press room to take photos with best supporting actor winner Gene Hackman, and that was that. Except, it wasn't; what should have been a purely celebratory milestone in her career ended up turning into one of Hollywood's oldest and most interesting award season rumors. »

Oscars 2017: 'Moonlight,' Warren Beatty and the Perfect Hollywood Ending

27 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Forget it, Jake – it's La La Land.

No wait, sorry, there's been a mistake. it's Moonlight! Our bad.

What a glorious only-in-Hollywood fiasco, and what a sublimely insane ending to an Oscar night for the ages. It was just like the end of Bonnie and Clyde: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway bask in each others' glow, there's suddenly an awkward silence, they share a moment of doomed erotic eye contact ... and then oh, the carnage. The only thing missing was some sad banjo music. The Best Picture screw-up was »

When gongs go wrong ... a short history of awards being given to the losers

26 February 2017 11:32 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway’s epic error in reading out the wrong best picture winner was unprecedented at Oscars. Accuracy at other ceremonies, however, is more erratic

• Anatomy of a fiasco: how the La La Land mixup happened

Related: A brief history of the Oscars in viral moments they want you to forget

The Oscars are usually a model of ruthless efficiency – aside from the bad calls, epic awkwardness and occasional streaker. The sole controversy came in 1993 when presenter Jack Palance read out Marisa Tomei’s name as best supporting actress for My Cousin Vinny. The rumour spread that this was a mistake: either because it was the only name he could remember, or because he was reading off the teleprompter rather than the card in his hand.

Kurt Russell – A Retrospective

24 January 2017 9:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kurt Russell is amazing. That’s all there really is to it, quite frankly. Hell, he’s so cool that when he gets cast in a Marvel superhero movie they decide he’s not going to play a superhero. He’s not even going to play a baddie. He’s going to play a planet! That’s right, a planet – in the eagerly awaited Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 Russell will be playing Ego The Living Planet, and frankly there’s no greater compliment to one of the coolest men to have ever walked the earth.

Many readers however may not beaware of his galactic level of cool, however – even after an ice cold performance as Jimmy Harrell, rig supervisor and all-round good egg in Deepwater Horizon, out on 4k Uhd Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD on the 30th January courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Sure, recent outings in The Hateful Eight, »
