Room Star Brie Larson Didn’t Know Who Won the Super Bowl, Faked Her Way Through a Celebrity Football Game

2 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The Super Bowl is such a massive television event that it’s easy to forget that not every single person in America watches the game. One of those people who didn’t tune in to the Super Bowl was Room star Brie Larson, who admitted that she didn’t watch any part of the big game while she was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. In fact, Larson didn’t even know who won the Super Bowl. The topic came up after Kimmel asked Larson what she did for the Super Bowl, and it was easy to see that she wasn’t the biggest football fan. “It

Brie Larson Hasn't Spoken to Her Father in 10 Years

2 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Brie Larson may very well be win an Oscar her role in Room, but that doesn't mean the actress is letting her rapid fire success go to her well-highlighted head.  Brie covers Elle magazine's March issue, and the actress' smoldering stare is not her only feature worthy of gleaming praise. Perfected smize aside, Brie's recent slew of awards season success—including both a Golden Globe and SAG win (thus far)—has earned her quite the name for herself. And what's more? Her critically lauded performance in Room is soon to be followed by another big project. Brie is set to take on the lead role in 2017's Kong: Skull Island.   While Brie may »

Best Actress Besties Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan Honored in Santa Barbara

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — The Santa Barbara International Film Festival displayed the proper foresight in late November last year when selecting “Room” star Brie Larson and “Brooklyn’s” Saoirse Ronan as first-time tandem recipients of the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award: Both have remained out in front of the best actress Oscar race in a year marked by a number of female-centric narratives, and they continue to lock horns heading into the Feb. 28 Academy Awards ceremony.

Of course, nothing approaching competitive awareness was on display Monday night as the two ingenues — who have been previously recognized by Sbiff in the Virtuosos sidebar — enjoyed their dual tributes. In fact, they’ve become quite close on the circuit.

Alas, circumstances kept them apart this time — the production of “Kong: Skull Island,” to be specific. The blockbuster sequel has filled Larson’s schedule all season as she has bounced from locations in Vietnam, »

Inside the Oscar Nominees Lunch

The Academy Nominees lunch is always a convivial way for Oscar nominees to relax (while they work a room full of voters) and congratulate each other at tables full of fellow nominees, and pose for the annual group photo, 20 days ahead of the Academy Awards. 150 gathered this year at the Beverly Hilton; notably absent were working pros Cate Blanchett, Michael Fassbender and Tom HardyBrie Larson has to fly back to Australia for "King Kong" before returning for the Oscars.

Oscar Telecast Will Be ‘Most Diverse Ever,’ Says Producer at Luncheon

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s Oscar show “will be the most diverse ever,” producer David Hill told Variety on Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon. Despite the lack of acting nominees of color — which the Academy has no control over — Hill and fellow Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin have been working since September to make sure the Oscars “will have true diversity and will represent what the world looks like.”

The remarks were made at the 35th annual event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Hudlin said that an Oscar nomination is “an amazing moment in the life of any nominee,” and that the lunch is intended to celebrate their accomplishments.

They agreed that it’s crucial for the entire film industry to attain inclusion, but there is also room to celebrate the great film work of 2015, which been somewhat overshadowed in the past month. Or, as Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences »

This Brie Larson Quote About Jacob Tremblay May Be the Nicest Thing Anyone Has Said About Anyone

20 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Brie Larson is nominated for her role in Room, which the actress has deservedly been winning all over the place for, but there's a sense of bittersweetness in the fact that Jacob Tremblay didn't get nominated. However, he's not going unappreciated; not only is he getting his due at other award shows, at the Oscar luncheon, Larson had some of the nicest things to say about him that anyone has ever said about anyone. When asked about her 9-year-old costar, Larson said this: "I'm a better person from knowing him and working with him. I feel really honored that I got to go through this experience of being shot through a cannon into the stratosphere with him, because the perception of the world, that innocence, that humor, that lightness that he brings to the movie is the same thing he brings to every second of his actual life.

2016 Oscar Previews: Part 1

7 February 2016 5:11 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 88th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 28th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

Alejandro González Iñárritu Wins Top DGA Award; Full List Of Winners

7 February 2016 12:31 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, that’s two DGA wins in two years for Alejandro González Iñárritu, and the Oscar plot thickens. A couple of weeks ago, the Academy Awards race seemed somewhat preordained. “The Big Short” had won the Producers Guild Award (the winner goes on to win Best Picture 69.2% of the time), the SAG awards had pretty much tipped who was going to win in the Oscar acting races, and it all seemed to be fairly locked in for the top categories. And while the odds still favor “The Big Short,” last night's DGAs point to the race still being open and furthermore, shaping up to be another year where the wealth is shared and top prizes are not dominated by one picture.

Oscars 2016: What Is Going on With the Best Director Race?

5 February 2016 3:15 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Predicting the Oscar winners this year is a little like predicting the winners of the early presidential caucuses and primaries -- that's how wide open the field is in some categories, particularly Best Director.

In the Oscar race, we had two important guild votes this week, from the actors and the editors, and the results made the Academy's contest a bit more clear. Will the DGA's vote this weekend help make sense of things? Maybe, depending on who wins.

The Screen Actors Guild awards last Saturday did help confirm some of the acting races. SAG winner Leonardo DiCaprio still has a lock on a Best Actor Oscar for "The Revenant," and Brie Larson is still far and away the Best Actress frontrunner for "Room." Alicia Vikander's SAG win for Supporting Actress for "The Danish Girl" puts her ahead of the pack; at this point, her only real competition is »

Meet Lenny Abrahamson, the Nearly Unknown Oscar-Nominated Director of ‘Room’

5 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Perhaps the most surprising, and unfamiliar, name at this year’s Academy Awards is that of Room director, Lenny Abrahamson. The Irish filmmaker is far from a household name, with only a handful of credits and his biggest film to date being 2014’s quirky SXSW favorite, Frank.

That is on the brink of changing, however, with Abrahamson earning his first Oscar nomination for this year’s Room, which tells the story of a young mother (best actress nominee Brie Larson) forced to raise her five-year-old son in the confines of a single room. As if an Oscar nom wasn’t enough, Abrahamson’s next slated project will team him with breakout star, and fellow Irishman, Domnhall Gleeson, on a script written by best picture-nominated The Danish Girl screenwriter Lucinda Coxon.

The director has been having a phenomenal year and has knocked out some of the »
