Adam Sandler's second movie after leaving Saturday Night Live was Happy Gilmore, which has grown a huge cult following over the years and helped launch the comedian as one of today's biggest box office stars. It is probably best remembered for an epic fight on the golf course between Adam Sandler and legendary game show host Bob Barker, which infamously ended with The Price Is Right headmaster declaring, "Now you've had enough...Bitch!" Well, that old grudge match is back on in a new video for the upcoming charity event Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs, which airs on Comedy Central this Sunday, March 8.
Jon Stewart will host Night of Too Many Stars, which will raise money with Nyca (New York Collaborates for Autism) to support programs covering everything from the intensive education kids with autism needs at a young age to social training »
Are you still rubbed the wrong way by the winners of this year’s Oscars? Wish that if they have 10 nominations, they should realistically use them to nominate cool movies everyone has seen like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars, and if you’re not going to, why not just go back to 5?
That’s what the MTV Movie Awards are for, and surprisingly, they’ve made some choices that are making them look even more diverse and in touch with society than the Academy.
The movie of the year nominations are a healthy mix of blockbusters and critical darlings, with Oscar winner Birdman nowhere to be found (except for Best Female Performance by Emma Stone and Best Fight, between Michael Keaton and Edward Norton).

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 »
Ansel Elgort stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to chat about the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, which hits theaters on March 20. Last time Ansel was Jimmy's guest, he showed off his tap-dancing skills, but this time he shared some funny Oscars anecdotes. Ansel, who brought his mother to the award show, revealed that his mom had no clue who Steve Carell and Bruce Willis were. He then shared the hilarious "mom moment" that happened when she met them, plus why he was also worried about pulling a Travolta this year. Ansel has been living it up in the Big Apple; after spending part of his weekend in Brooklyn with his goddaughter, he got animated in the crowd when the New York Rangers beat the Nashville Predators on Monday night. Watch the video above, and then check out even more viral videos! »

Last year, I wrote a pair of pieces looking at the folks in Hollywood who were due for their first Oscar nominations or the their first wins. At the most recent Academy Award ceremony, two of those names got moved off of the list, so I wanted to take a look back and see who’s still on those lists and what they might have coming for us this year. I’ll update the lists with some new people next month, but for now…let’s go look at if the Oscars gave us some long overdue citations. If you were paying attention, you definitely noticed two of them. As a quick refresher for you all, here are the ten names that I had down as overdue for their first nods from the Academy: 10. Channing Tatum 9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt 8. Kevin Smith 7. Jennifer Jason Leigh 6. Jeff Daniels 5. Hoyte Van Hoytema 4. Steve Carell »

It takes a commitment to pull off a star-packed comedy benefit show that has raised $18 million and counting for autism-related education and support programs since 2003.
Simply put, Rudd bared his soul and other bodily cavities for the sake of the cause, namely raising money for the New York Collaborates for Autism org. Using a “Wheel of Fortune”-style spinning wheel dubbed “Wheel of Rudd,” the actor invited audience members to spin for the chance to do something to him.
One gave him a slap, one landed on “Travolta face-touching,” a reference to last Sunday’s Oscar telecast, and one landed on “baby bird,” which involved an audience member chewing up a few bites of a Zabar »

On Oscars Sunday, Emma Watson took to Twitter to thank nominee Steve Carell for wearing HeForShe cuff links in support of the #HeForShe gender equality campaign. The actor wore Monique Péan for HeForShe cuff links and shirt studs, which were codesigned by Emma and Monique Péan. To thank him, Emma tweeted a picture of a supersweet note that she wrote for him, which read: Dear Steve Carell, You were pure genius in Little Miss Sunshine (one of my all time favourite films), my brother became obsessed with you after Anchorman, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love, I hated that guy you played in The Way Way Back, and then you were mind-blowing in Foxcatcher. I think you're so awesome and now you are wearing #HeForShe cufflinks at the Oscars to support Gender Equality. Couldn't be more proud. Thank You. Love, Emma x Steve replied on Monday, »
'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper. For that, »
