Paramount moves action sequel from Christmas Day and puts animated “Monster Trucks” there

This summer’s box office got a little hotter Monday, as Paramount Pictures shifted the release date of its Tom Cruise tentpole movie “Mission Impossible 5″ from Christmas Day to July 31.

At the same time, the studio moved the animated film “Monster Trucks” into the Dec. 25 slot previously occupied by “MI5.”

On its new summer date, “Mission Impossible 5″ will open against the “Point Break” remake starring Luke Bracey from Warner Bros., “Self/Less,” the Ryan Reynolds sci-fi thriller from Focus Features and “Southpaw,” the Antoine Fuqua-directed boxing »

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

15 hours ago | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »

Can Parks and Rec's Leslie Knope Accomplish the Impossible? And What Do Flying Robots Have to Do With It?

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

If Leslie Knope thought getting Lot 48 turned into a park was a challenge, well, beating Gryzzl for the Newport land to make her National Park may be darn near impossible. "Hey, I've seen you beat tougher odds than this," Ben (Adam Scott) says in the exclusive Parks and Rec clip. "They're not that powerful." Enter the drone. "Oh my god, Ben, we're about to die! The robots have come for us. I made fun of you when you said it would happen, but your novel has come true," Leslie (Amy Poehler) says. Leslie is up against tech company Gryzzl for the land that the company is offering $90 million for. Gryzzl also happens to be working with Ron Swanson's (Nick »

Amongst this years Screen Actors Guild Award winners are Eddie Redmayne, who won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Birdman, which took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Orange Is the New Black, whose star Uzo Uduba claimed the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category.

Redmayne, dedicated his award to sufferers of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), the illness which Hawking himself suffers from. He also went on to congratulate fellow actors such as Bradley Cooper, David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall.

It has been a big weekend for Birdman, which not only won best ensemble »

Review: Why SAG Awards are an ideal model for all awards telecasts

22 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

If I ran award shows, they'd go like the SAG Awards: quick, efficient, to the point, without a host or any filler. -Break- Don't get me wrong, I love a good host when the job is done well – see folks like Neil Patrick Harris, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for some of the best examples in recent years – but it's usually a thankless job, and a hostless show is always preferable to watching an ill-fitting emcee struggle for laughs. (Sorry Michael Strahan, but as hard as you tried, you hosting the Critics' Choice Awards a couple of weeks ago looked uncomfortable for you and the audience.)

SAG Awards 2015: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises

25 January 2015 7:37 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The SAG Awards are often seen as a good indicator of who will win the Oscars — actors make up the biggest part of the Academy voting body — but the biggest surprises at the ceremony were in the TV categories, including Netflix cleaning up and “Modern Family” finally getting snubbed. Still, Eddie Redmayne, along with “Birdman,” made for some surprises in the film races.

See below the 8 biggest snubs and surprises from the film and TV categories at the 2015 Golden Globes.

Surprise: Eddie Redmayne, “The Theory of Everything

Going into the SAG Awards, lead actor was considered a showdown between Michael Keaton for “Birdman” and Eddie Redmayne for “The Theory of Everything.” Most were giving the edge to Keaton, a beloved veteran who showed a sense of humor playing a former superhero attempting a comeback. But in the end, it was Redmayne’s transformative performance as Stephen Hawking that took home the top prize. »

2015 SAG Awards Best Hair Trends—Split Parts, Old Hollywood Glamour and More

25 January 2015 7:20 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hair played a big part at the 2015 SAG Awards—literally.  It is the year of the low-key, effortless look. Many stars kept it mild, with soft, relaxed curls and simple updos that made us swoon. But even though the ladies kept it simple, their looks were differentiated and defined by their hair's various split parts.  Amy Poehler, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Paulson and Julie Bowen gave us simple, chic side-parted hair to complement but not overshadow their gorgeous ensembles. This year, the center part has also become the mane event for many an A-lister and was more than present on the SAG Awards red carpet. Keira Knightley's half-up/half-down center part went great with her gentle smoky »

SAG Awards 2015: Uzo Aduba and 'Orange Is the New Black' Cast Defeat 'Modern Family'!

25 January 2015 6:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Hollywood loves the ladies of Litchfield!

Orange is the New Black's Uzo Aduba kicked off the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Award with a well-deserved win in the Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Comedy category.

Not only did Aduba beat out comedy heavy-hitters like Edie Falco, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Amy Poehler, the first-time nominee shined in bright yellow gown when accepting her Actor statuette.

Etonline

Know for playing "Crazy Eyes" in the smash Netflix series, Aduba was stunned to tears during her acceptance speech. "The day I got this job was the day I had stopped acting. And to be in a room with all your amazing talents, for what I respect and love so much, is just the greatest honor," she said to the room full of Hollywood's biggest A-listers.

2015 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners: 'Birdman' Wins Best Ensemble, but is It the Oscar Frontrunnerc

25 January 2015 6:20 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »
