Year in advance Oscar Predictions

27 February 2015 1:27 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I know this seems nuts, but here I am with some Academy Award predictions for next season. We’re a long way out, yes…but for me, this is the absolute most fun time of the year, in terms of forming predictions. Why? Simply put, it’s because anything is possible. If you want to see how an odd nominee would look, you need only predict it. Right now, we’re just as likely to see Steven Spielberg’s latest St. James Place take Best Picture as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s kind of a brilliant thing, really. Even so, I’ve tried to be as logical as possible here, foregoing a number of quirkier picks in favor of the contenders I really feel good about, even if it really is only February still. Which films are in contention? You’ll be able to see below, but »

Virginia Madsen Joins Jennifer Lawrence In David O. Russell’s Joy

26 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once you’re in with David O. Russell, you’re really in. The Oscar-nominated director’s next film, buzzy biopic Joy, will reunite him with American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, ensuring another round of Oscar nominations for them all. Luckily, though, it won’t be all familiar faces for Russell: Sideways actress Virginia Madsen has just joined the cast, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

The film, set for a prime awards season release on Christmas Day this year, will focus on Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano (Lawrence), who began inventing at a young age and eventually hit it big with the Mop and Huggable Hampers, in addition to more than 100 other patents. As her empire grew, Mangano also juggled the responsibilities of playing single mom to three children.

Film Review: ‘Accidental Love’

25 February 2015 2:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At one point in “Accidental Love,” the movie’s crusading heroine flips on a TV and catches a glimpse of George A. Romero’s seminal 1968 zombie opus “Night of the Living Dead.” And, like one of Romero’s own restless undead, this mirthless, misshapen social satire cum romantic comedy has managed to crawl out of the early grave to which it was consigned in 2008, back when its title was “Nailed” and its director was David O. Russell. Pieced together by unknown parties after years stuck in litigation (resulting from the bankruptcy of financier David Bergetsin’s Capitol Films), “Accidental Love” turns out to be no “Margaret”-style diamond-in-the-rough, but merely a not-particularly-interesting curio from the low ebb of a great director’s career. Russell (credited here as Stephen Greene), original producers Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher, and the starry ensemble cast have understandably kept their distance from this opportunistic cash-grab release, »

Where Was Jennifer Lawrence During Oscar Weekend? Hanging Out in Boston!

23 February 2015 7:33 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After the Oscars came and went, we were left with a number of burning questions. But none were quite as pressing as: Where was Jennifer Lawrence and why wasn't she there to liven up the ceremony?!

As it turns out, she decided that freezing in Boston snow was more fun than attending the Academy Awards.

Video: 2015 Oscars: The Best, Worst, and Weirdest Moments

The star was spotted shopping at a mall, bundled up to the nines, and carrying her tiny dog Pippi. Wearing 10 layers of weather-proof clothing is still more comfortable than squeezing into a tiny, poufy dress.

The Hunger Games star -- who has been nominated for Oscars three times in the last five years, winning once -- has been in Boston working on the upcoming bio-pic Joy, the real-life story of Joy Mangano, a single mom who became a world-famous entrepreneur after inventing the Miracle Mop.
