Will Idris Elba and Helen Mirren Each Take Home Two SAG Awards? Here's What the Odds Say

30 January 2016 3:25 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

We are doubly blessed to have both Idris Elba and Helen Mirren in our lives, so it seems fair that both of these actors received two individual Screen Actors Guild Award nominations this year. Mirren has been honored for her lead role in Woman in Gold and her supporting part in Trumbo. For Elba, his nominations span media, with a nod for lead actor in a TV show for Luther and for his supporting role in the Netflix film Beasts of No Nation. Mark Rylance of Wolf Hall and Bridge of Spies also received two individual nominations this year. So »

Hitting cinemas this week is the brand new comedy Dirty Grandpa, which pits Zac Efron’s uptight lawyer Jason, against Robert De Niro’s Dick, his grandpa who forces him to take him on a road trip to Daytona Beach in Florida for spring break.

10 Awesome Singing Performances By Actors in Movies

25 January 2016 5:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The other day someone mentioned Val Kilmer’s performance in The Doors as the complete opposite of a terrible singing performance in movies. It was suggested that I do an article on great singing performances by non-singing actors in movies. With a little digging and a little bit of laughter, I think I came up with 10 that are definitely worthy of a mention. Bare in mind that I only added actors who are clearly not singers commercially.  So no Jamie Foxx (since he has an album) and obviously no Jennifer Lopez, Will Smith, etc etc. If I’ve missed any, obviously

The Good and the Bad: Driving Films to Remember and Forget

25 January 2016 7:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Films have long been able to give us a glimpse into another life. One that only movie stars can access but, deep down, we all secretly wish that one day we too will be able to live out.

There are literally hundreds of driving films – some that will stay in your mind forever and some that should be consigned to the bargain bucket, never to be seen again. To make a great driving film – the sort to inspire you to want to learn to drive yourself – you need to have serious gear-heads on board, classic motors, fast cars, car chases and a spectacular storyline.

Here, we sort through the movies to remember and those better off forgotten.

Rush (2013) – Ron Howard’s biopic about the ‘70s rivalry between Formula One racers Niki Lauda and James Hunt is over the top in all the right ways. The two main characters »

The kinds of black roles that win Oscars

20 January 2016 2:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are plenty of dubious issues when it comes to minority movies roles and which ones get Oscar attention. Did you know that only two performers have won Oscars for playing Lgbt film characters who don't die? Those would be Philip Seymour Hoffman as Truman in Capote and Penelope Cruz as Vicky Cristina Barcelona.  Then there's the issue of racial minorities and their Oscar chances. In the year where #OscarsSoWhite is finally picking up major traction, let's discuss the kinds of black supporting roles that tend to win the Oscar -- and why.  (Note: I mentioned Ray Charles and Forest Whitaker together in the introduction -- meant to say Jamie Foxx and Forest Whitaker. Foxx did disappear into that role but I didn't intend to make him disappear from this episode. Apologies!) »

Rob Cohen to Direct a Disaster Action Thriller 'Category 5'

20 January 2016 11:20 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The past decade hasn't been too kind to director Rob Cohen. The director, who is perhaps best known for directing Vin Diesel in the "Fast and the Furious" and "xXx" in the early 2000s hasn't done much for me to be excited about in recent years. In 2005, he directed "Stealth," the forgettable plane movie starring Jamie Foxx. In 2008, he directed the third "Mummy" flick, which effectively ended the franchise. In 2012, he directed the terrible "Alex Cross" movie, and most recently, he helmed the Jennifer Lopez vehicle "Boy Next Door," which wasn't any better received by viewers or critics.

It's now been revealed that Cohen will be going back to the crazy silly action genre with "Category 5," a film that "follows a team of tech hackers who infiltrate a U.S. Mint facility on a small coastal town to steal $102M in cash, just as a disastrous Category 5 hurricane, the storm of the century, »
