When Patricia Arquette, J.K. Simmons, Julianne Moore, and probably Eddie Redmayne ascend the Oscar dais to collect their respective awards for Best Supporting Actress, Supporting Actor, Actress, and Actor, you may feel a strong sense of déjà vu. That’s because this exact quartet all won SAG awards for acting. (They also all won Golden Globe awards for acting, as well as many pre-Oscar critics’ awards.) At this point, Arquette, Simmons, and Moore are stone-locks to win; Redmayne could possibly lose to Michael Keaton, though that’s looking increasingly unlikely. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the only meager kernel of suspense these four categories have to offer you this year.The SAG awards alone have become such an accurate predictor of the Oscars that, over the past five years, 18 of 20 SAG winners have gone on to win their Oscar category. (The exceptions: In 2013, Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor »

Roger Moore has offered a candid assessment of his 12 years playing James Bond.
Moore looked back on his years as James Bond in an interview with Fox News, when he was asked where he would rank himself among his fellow Bonds.
"I think a little bit behind George Lazenby, I suppose," he replied.
Lazenby only starred in a single James Bond movie, 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Moore went on to offer his thoughts on who the all-time best James Bond actors have been.
"I believe [Daniel Craig is] an excellent Bond," he said. "He's much stronger than I am. I think he does a hell of a good job of it. He and Sean are, I think, undoubtedly the best Bonds."

Arthur will play the teenage version of a woman named Tina, who finds herself trapped in an very dangerous situation with a now 14-year-old Dean Winchester (guest star Dylan Everett) in the Feb. 3 episode of the cult hit’s 10th season.
Titled “About a Boy,” the episode sees Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigating a case in which people are disappearing into thin air with only their clothes left behind. The Winchesters suspect fairies or angels, but the truth turns out to be much more shocking — Hansel (guest star Mark Acheson), from Hansel and Gretel lore, is kidnapping people and turning them into their younger selves to placate the evil witch (“Downton Abbey’s” Lesley Nicol). Unfortunately, Dean finds this information out the hard way after he »

Update: Jerry Bruckheimer has hit Twitter to announce that Scodelario has officially joined the cast. Filming is set to kick off next month.It may not be sailing into cinemas this year or even next, but Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales clearly has the wind in its sails and is gathering up cast members. The latest potential recruit – because she’s still at the “early talks” stage – is The Maze Runner’s Kaya Scodelario.While almost nothing is concrete about the plot at this point, we do know that Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are marshalling together a production that will include Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow (natch), Geoffrey Rush likely as Barbossa, Brenton Thwaites as a dashing British soldier and a murderous ghostly villain named Captain Brand. The likes of Javier Bardem and Christoph Waltz have been approached for that role, but »
One of the great things about awards season is that it provides a rich field for statistic analysis. Attentive viewers can use the Golden Globes (the first major awards show of the season) and SAG Awards (the second) as a sort of predictive measure for the major acting awards at the Oscars. We looked at the Oscar-nominated roles in the four major acting categories (sorry, Jen and Naomi), and cut out anyone who didn't win or get nominated for a Golden Globe and a SAG. Then, we went back five years (because any more than that is insane - who are we, »

This week is a big one for sci-fi fans, as several fantastic films from 2014 are making their home entertainment debuts, including The Zero Theorem, Lucy and Coherence. Horror fans have a lot to look forward to as well with the releases of several notable titles like Wolves, Annabelle and Gnome Alone, which looks to be a hoot of a genre send-up.
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. Lucy also stars Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman.

Everything is not awesome.
The Oscar nominations are always full of snubs and surprises, but the one that's probably causing the most gasping and eyebrow-raising after Thursday morning's announcement of the nominees is the absence of "The Lego Movie" from the Best Animated Feature list. If ever there were a gimme in your Oscar pool, that would have been it.
Of course, there are plenty of other shockers -- notably, that "Selma" was ignored in every category except Best Original Song and still managed to eke out a Best Picture nomination, and that "Gone Girl" was shut out of every category except Best Actress. And there were many other unexpected inclusions and disappointing omissions, as you'll see below.
The Academy, which may pick between five and 10 Best Picture nominees, has chosen nine for the last few years, but this year, it only picked eight. The biggest oddity here is the inclusion of "Selma, »

The film that almost wasn’t due to a draft of the script being leaked in early 2014, causing Tarantino to shelve the project. But after a live script reading at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles in spring 2014, extreme interest seemed to reenergize The Hateful Eight, another ‘southern’ from Tarantino following 2012’s Django Unchained. While the role rumored for Christoph Waltz eventually went to Kurt Russell (who starred in Death Proof, of course), Tarantino recycles his usual crew, including Samuel Jackson, Zoe Bell, Michael Madsen, while adding some high profile names like Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Demian Bichir in a film set in post-Civil War Wyoming, where bounty hunters try to find shelter during a blizzard but get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. Tarantino has already announced he wants to go out while he’s still ‘fresh, »

The Oscar nominations are nearly upon us! Can you feel the excitement in the air? I can tell you’re just buzzing.
Perhaps you should be, because however small it is, the announcement of Thursday morning’s Oscar nominations will be a historic moment. All 24 categories, not just a select few, will be announced during the morning broadcast. Yes, even Best Sound Mixing and Best Documentary Short Film You Never Got The Chance to See. J.J. Abrams, Chris Pine and Alfonso Cuaron will do the honors starting at 8:30 Et, 5:30 Pt.
Though everyone and their brother is making absolute final last minute Oscar predictions as though all their misguided predictions throughout the fall didn’t matter, we thought we’d throw our hat in the ring at least once, draw a line in the sand and make sense of all we’ve been reporting on this Awards Season in our Hype Cycle feature. »

This year's Oscar race has been a thorny one to predict. Despite the emergence early on of a few front-runners in each category -- overall, the race has been dominated by "Boyhood" and "Birdman," with "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The "Theory of Everything," and "The Imitation Game" close behind -- it's those last few slots on the ballot in each category that are driving prognosticators nuts. Does "Selma" still have a strong shot in its eligible categories, or has the backlash soured Academy members? Is "Whiplash" big enough to make a dent outside the Supporting Actor category? Is "Nightcrawler" too creepy for the Academy?
We'll find out on Thursday, January 15, at 8:30 a.m. Et / 5:30 a.m. Pt, when the Academy announces this year's nominees. Meantime, here are Moviefone's best guesses as to who will earn a seat when the music stops on Thursday and who'll be left standing outside the circle. »

Tim Burton is perhaps one of the most unique and exciting filmmakers working today. With a vision inspired by classic horror and a dry wit, his films are often fiercely entertaining and endlessly clever. Of course, that’s not to say that there aren’t dark spots on his filmography. Like every filmmaker he’s had his missteps but even when the movies don’t quite work Burton manages to create films that are visually stunning and artistic. With the recent release of Big Eyes and a possible sequel to Beetlejuice in the works, examining Burton’s work and influence is more important than ever.
17. Planet of the Apes (2001): Even when a Burton film has issues there are usually some redeeming factors (see Darks Shadows’ amazing style) but, oh man, one really has to look hard to find something good in this disaster of a movie. Sure, the makeup »
Brad and Angelina, George and Amal, Christoph and his cheeseburger! These are the great love stories of our time. On Sunday, Jan. 11, Christoph Waltz sat in the audience of the Beverly Hilton Hotel and looked on as Michael Keaton bested him for the Golden Globe Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical win. Hopes dashed, the Big Eyes star, 58, retreated to The Weinstein Company & Netflix afterparty, where he promptly ordered a delicious Fatburger cheeseburger to drown his sorrows. Little did he know that this particular hamburger [...] »
During the E! Red Carpet, Kevin Spacey revealed that there is no food served at the Golden Globes—"no, you just get drunk at this event"—so by after party time, it should come as no surprise that Amy Adams was starving. Lucky for the Best Actress winner, there were cheeseburgers served at the The Weinstein Company and Netflix's party following the 72nd annual ceremony, however, in a series of shots taken from the bash, it appears that Adams' Big Eyes co-star Christoph Waltz's meal was provided first, leaving the red-headed beauty with only one option: to lung at Waltz's food with a crazed expression. No body gets between a hungry girl and her »
Thanks to Michael Keaton, Christoph Waltz did not win a Golden Globe last night for his role in Big Eyes. His work in Scary Eyes (2015, Getty Images) remained unimpeachable.Waltz later found his efforts to consume the meat patty interrupted by the arrival of certified Golden Globe winner Amy Adams, who exercised the customary winner's right of Droit du seigneur over the sandwich. And yet it was only by subsuming his ego to the natural hierarchy of the world that Waltz truly did find peace. »

I had a hell of a time trying to figure out how to tackle a list of my most anticipated movies of 2015. I'm not going to take the time to count the number of sequels, remakes, spin-offs, reboots, parts two of two or re-imaginings that are hitting theaters this year because, quite frankly, it doesn't matter any more. Trying to figure out where a film like Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens fit into a list of most anticipated films that weren't anything like it was impossible. Even then, how much am I "anticipating" the new Star Wars film versus how curious am I to simply see how it will turn out now that it's out of the hands of George Lucas and into the hands of J.J. Abrams, whose last Star Trek film was a complete messc Therefore, I decided on two distinctions in film, the blockbusters and then everything else. »

After the show, it's the afterparty! A-listers gathered at Harvey Weinstein's annual Golden Globes bash on Sunday, and there was no shortage of fun candid moments. Kate Hudson chatted it up with Marchesa designer - and wife of Harvey Weinstein - Georgina Chapman, while Harvey himself was surrounded with a bevy of beauties like Lorde, Taylor Swift, Jaime King, and Danielle Haim. As Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan hit the dance floor, Jennifer Lopez stayed close to her red carpet date and The Boy Next Door costar Ryan Guzman, and Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne got cheeky across the room. Big Eyes' Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz fought over a cheeseburger, and Helen Mirren snacked on french fries; nearby, Jake Gyllenhaal chilled with 50 Cent, and Will Arnett held Ricky Gervais in his arms like a little baby. You won't believe how much fun these celebs had - scroll »
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) presented the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

On the comedy/musical side, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won the top prize, beating "Birdman," which many thought would be the winner. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" didn't win in any other categories. Michael Keaton, however, won for best actor for "Birdman." Check out the full list of nominees and winner (in red) below. Best Motion Picture -.
