Horror at the Oscars 2011 - Part One

28 February 2011 4:12 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It is that time of year again when Dread Central pays its respects to those who have worked in our beloved genre and made it to the red carpet on Oscar night 2011. The genre was in rare form when it came to the nominations. Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan was up for the gold in multiple categories (best picture, best actress, cinematography, and direction); even The Wolfman was on the short-list for best make-up. And win we did.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves because therein lie the gems of VHS past for a large share of both the winners and folks who were nominated. Highlights include a win for Melissa Leo (nominated two years ago for Frozen River), whom we remember best as Judith 'MaMa' Baer in Deadtime Stories. And who could forget Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho? My fellow fright fiends, he brought home the gold last night. »

Post-Award Thoughts

28 February 2011 8:30 AM, PST | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

As I watched the Oscars and the Independent Spirit Awards this weekend you could see one clear difference between the two events (aside from the formal dresses and the hosts)--the presence of female winners. The Oscars followed the usual path and having male winner after male winner, especially in the creative and the high profile awards. Look at the list of winners. Aside from the actresses there were only a couple of female winners. At the Oscars the winners included: Susanne Bier for best foreign film - In a Better World Karen O'Hara for set decorator - Alice in Wonderland… »

The King's Speech Is Golden With Four Top Academy Awards

28 February 2011 12:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The King's Speech ruled over the 2011 Academy Awards on Sunday, taking home four honours including Best Picture and Best Actor for the movie's star, Colin Firth.

The royal drama, about stuttering British monarch George VI, led the competition with 12 nominations going into this year's Oscars, and edged out the likes of Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception and The Social Network to claim the most coveted title of the night.

Firth was crowned Best Actor in a Leading Role, emerging triumphant over Javier Bardem (Biutiful), Jeff Bridges (True Grit), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and James Franco (127 Hours).

Filmmaker Tom Hooper also basked in Oscar glory as he was hailed Best Director, beating Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), David O. Russell (The Fighter), David Fincher (The Social Network) and Joel and Ethan Coen (True Grit).

Pregnant Natalie Portman fought back tears as she walked away with Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of a tormented ballet dancer in Black Swan, ahead of Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) and Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine).

She gave special thanks to her Black Swan choreographer and fiance Benjamin Millepied, telling the audience, "So many people helped me prepare for this role... my beautiful love, Benjamin Millepied who choreographed the film and has now given me the most important role of my life."

It was also a golden night for The Fighter, about tough Boston, Massachusetts boxing legends Micky Ward and Dicky Eklund, as Christian Bale and Melissa Leo dominated the Best Supporting categories.

Meanwhile, moviemaker Francis Ford Coppola, actor Eli Wallach and historian Kevin Brownlow were given a standing ovation in recognition of the lifetime achievement honours they received at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Governors Awards in November. Fellow honouree Jean-Luc Godard did not attend the ceremony.

Oscars co-hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco opened the 2011 Academy Awards with a hilarious spoof poking fun at the Best Picture nominees, while 2010 presenter Alec Baldwin and Morgan Freeman also made surprise appearances in the skit.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi, Randy Newman, and Florence Welch and A.R. Rahman provided the music for the night as they performed the tracks nominated for Best Original Song.

And Celine Dion took to the Kodak Theatre stage in Los Angeles to sing Smile during the ceremony's annual In Memorium segment, remembering the stars lost in the past 12 months, including Tony Curtis, Leslie Nielsen, Dennis Hopper, Pete Postlethwaite and Gloria Stuart.

Leo Curses On Air As She Takes Home Best Supporting Actress Oscar

27 February 2011 6:16 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Melissa Leo walked away with the first big prize at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, when she was named Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Fighter.

The 50-year-old star capped off her amazing 2011 awards season by triumphing over her The Fighter co-star Amy Adams to claim Oscar gold. She also beat competition from Helena Bonham Carter (The King's Speech), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom).

Accepting the honour from 94-year-old acting icon Kirk Douglas, Leo paid tribute to her movie co-stars Adams and Mark Wahlberg, and thanked her family for their support.

But she also turned the air blue, swearing just moments into the live telecast as she marvelled at the packed audience inside the Kodak Theater, where the awards are taking place.

She gasped, "When I watched Kate (Winslet, 2008 Oscar winner) three years ago it looked so f**king easy!"

Anne Hathaway and James Franco opened the 83rd Annual Academy Awards by spoofing Best Picture nominee Inception and attempting to break into 2010 presenter Alec Baldwin's dreams to find the secrets to success as the co-hosts of the biggest prizegiving in Hollywood. Morgan Freeman also featured in the hilarious segment, which saw the young stars appear in clips from other top film nominees The Social Network, The Fighter, True Grit, The King's Speech and Black Swan.

The very first award of the night, for Best Art Direction, went to Robert Stromberg and Karen O'Hara for their work on Alice In Wonderland, while Inception's Wally Pfister landed Best Cinematography.

Toy Story 3 took home Best Animated Feature. »

Live Blog: 2011 Academy Awards

27 February 2011 12:51 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Oscars: an annual tribute to the excesses that have made Hollywood what it is, a glorified and overdone celebration of all things fantastic in film. Tonight the 83rd annual Academy Awards comes from the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, California, and will be hosted by the tandem of James Franco and Anne Hathaway. During its (roughly) three-hour-long telecast, 24 different winners will be announced as the year's best in all facets of film production.

A few front-runners have emerged come Oscar time this year. The King's Speech leads the pack with 12 nominations, followed by True Grit with 10. Inception and The Social Network also garnered eight nods apiece. The King's Speech is widely perceived to have the momentum leading into tonight's ceremony, believed by most to be a heavy favorite to win Best Picture, among other Oscars. Will another early favorite, such as The Social Network or Inception, regain its impetus and upset The King's Speech? »

Reposting: My Complete, Fearless 2011 Oscar Predictions! Then Come Back Here and Join My Oscar Minute-by-Minute Blogfest!

27 February 2011 12:14 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

It's hard to predict the winners of this year's Oscars because there is no clear-cut favorite. Last year, Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker" started strong during awards season and maintained its dominance all the way to its Oscar best picture victory. This year, David Fincher's "The Social Network" triumphed in the beginning but the Oscar buzz surrounding the movie is slowly fading away.

But I still have my favorites and I will attempt to handicap the Oscars. Here are my predictions of who should take home Oscar gold at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

Best Picture

.Black Swan. Mike Medavoy, Brian Oliver and Scott Franklin, Producers

.The Fighter. David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Mark Wahlberg, Producers

.Inception. Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan, Producers

.The Kids Are All Right. Gary Gilbert, Jeffrey Levy-Hinte and Celine Rattray, Producers

.The King's Speech. Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin, Producers
