During the 1990s, Jennifer Aniston was one of the most popular actresses in the world.

Chadwick Boseman is keeping how they kept 'Black Panther' news quiet a secret

16 November 2014 2:44 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chadwick Boseman is looking at me with a huge grin on his face. On the one hand, the "Get on Up" star is no doubt in a great mood after being celebrated by well-wishers for his performance as the legendary James Brown in last summer's well-received biopic. The late love is thanks to Universal Pictures, who has organized a Sunday brunch at SoHo House West Hollywood to help remind voters about Boseman's critically acclaimed portrayal. Director Tate Taylor ("The Help"), producer Brian Grazer and co-star Craig Robinson are all on hand, but Boseman is the center of the attention.   Now back to why he's smiling. While the 37-year-old actor deserves all the accolades he receives for "Get on Up," and a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical category seems likely, there are other events in the air that may soon turn him into a household name. »

A response to Idris Elba

15 November 2014 2:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes with a response to Idris Elba and his recent Marvel comments…

Recently, Idris dropped a huge spoiler for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and later started bad mouthing his experience working on Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. He claimed that he felt silly during an VFX shot where he was in a harness with a helmet and hair piece, having just come from filming Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Part of me understands where he’s coming from but another part is extremely frustrated.

I don’t like making personal attacks on people, especially such a nice guy, so I’m going to try to be as fair as possible to Idris Elba here. I understand that being an actor can be a lot harder then people give it credit for. Most actors are very charming and grateful people, so when they complain we tend to be a »

What are the Hollywood Film Awardsc

14 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tonight the Hollywood Film Awards® will make their television debut on CBS, but what exactly is this show that has actually trademarked the tagline "Official Launch of the Award Season™" and declares they "launch the awards season" and that "over the past 17 years, prior honorees have gone on to garner many Oscar nominations and wins"c Well, it's just that, it's a so-called "awards" ceremony where the "winners" are more-or-less hand-picked by publicists. They aren't necessarily awards as much as they are curated attempts at headlines on the campaign trail. Carlos de Abreu is listed as the Founder and Executive Producer of the Hfa. His bio lists him as "an Internet pioneer" (whatever that means) and founder and CEO of the Hollywood Network® Inc. He was also a jet pilot in the Portuguese Air Force, but perhaps most importantly he has experience in brand marketing, which is pretty much all the Hollywood Film Awards are. »
