Another Oscar Trivia Explosion. This time it's the Actresses.
Jennifer Lawrence made quite a film-carrying impression in Winter's Bone this past summer. It was one of the leggiest arthouse hits in some time, playing for months, and wracking up $6+ million without a huge advertising budget or bankable stars and with grim subject matter. Well done. At Christmas Hailee Steinfeld will lead us on a revenge journey in True Grit. While we suspect she's the lead actress as well, people her age are almost always demoted to "Supporting" if they're sharing the screen with a big star as co-lead and she is. Hi, Jeff Bridges! But we're pretending she's an Oscar lead today so as to have double the excuse to make this list. Humour us, won'cha?
Imaginary Movie: Steinfeld. Lawrence. Winter's True Bone.
36 Youngest Best Actress NomineesAnd where Jennifer or Hailee would fit in, were they to be nominated. (Winning performances are in red. »

If Jennifer Lawrence (“Winter’s Bone”) wins the Gotham Independent Film Award for best breakthrough actor (for which she was nominated this morning and is the clear favorite) and then goes on to snag a nomination for the Academy Award for best actress (as many believe she will), it would mark the sixth of the past seven years that the/a winner of the award went on to receive an Oscar nod, an impressive figure.
Who were the Gifa winners whose awards runs continued — and whose did not?

Over the past decade (2000-2009), only 24 of 200 nominations for acting Oscars have gone to individuals who were 30 years old or younger (at the time of the nominations announcement); of those, only 6 went to men (4 for best actor and 2 for best supporting actor), while 18 went to women (11 for best actress and 7 for best supporting actress); and in no year did more than 5 of the 20 nominees fall into that demographic (that happened once, but in most years the number was 1 or 2). There is, however, reason to believe that these trends will be halted, if not reversed for the long-term, when this year’s nominations are announced on January 25, 2011.
I find ample reason to believe that on that date, as many as 8 nominees — and possibly more — could still be 30 or younger. The most likely candidates: Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) for best actor, Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”) for best supporting actor, Anne Hathaway »

Mis-Fits is the upcoming L.D. Napier official directorial debut and a story of a “necro-detective,” who searches for peoples lost and or dead relatives.
Cinematographer Affonso Beato (The Queen) and production designer Richard Hoover (Dead Man Walking) have also climbed aboard for the project, while Ingrid Michaelson is set to write an original song for the film with music by M. Ward.
Napier previously directed the documentaries The Incremental Injury and Every 21 Seconds: Or Why I Scream at the Refrigerator.
But, we still guess that this could be something quite interesting. »
There aren't enough Guy Pearce movies. You can see him right now in a small but powerful part in the Australian crime picture Animal Kingdom, and he'll soon show up in the remake of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. And now he's been cast, along with four other actors, in a comedy called Mis-Fits. THR says that Pearce, Seymour Cassel, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Cloris Leachman and Virginie Ledoyen are all in the film, which will be the feature directorial debut of playwright L.D. Napier. Mis-Fits is based on a script by Napier, and " tells the story of a "necro-detective" who goes in search of people's lost, dead relatives." Producer Doug Claybourne calls it "a wacky comedy in the tone of Harold and Maude," and I invite you to spend a few contemplative moments reconciling that logline with Claybourne's description. Got it? Good. For the film, Ingrid Michaelson is writing »

Guy Pearce (who will be next seen in the critically acclaimed Animal Kingdom) has been cast in the directorial debut of author-playwright L.D. Napier’s feature, Mis-Fits (not to be confused with the recent dazzling Channel 4 kids-with-superpowers drama).
He’ll join Seymour Cassel, Cloris Leachman, Catalina Sandino Moreno, and Virginie Ledoyen in this comedy (which according to The Hollywood Reporter) is about a “necro-detective” whose job it is to track down people’s lost, dead relatives.
Scheduled to begin shooting next May, producer Doug Claybourne has remarked that the humour in the film will be “in the tone of Harold and Maude”. Sounds like an unusual project and a real change of pace for Pearce. »

The story follows a "necro-detective" who goes in search of people's lost, dead relatives. The tone is described as a 'wacky comedy' along the lines of "Harold and Maude".

Guy Pearce, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Seymour Cassel, Cloris Leachman, and Virginie Ledoyen have been cast in author-playwright L.D. Napier’s directorial debut Mis-Fits. According to Variety, the comedy centers on a ‘necro-detective’ who goes in search of people’s lost dead relatives.” I assume he always comes back with bad news. Producer Doug Claybourne says that Mis-Fits “is a wacky comedy in the tone of Harold and Maude“.
Filming is set to begin in May with Affonso Beato (The Queen) on board as cinematographer and Richard Hoover (Dead Man Walking) attached as production designer. Ingrid Michaelson will write an original song for the movie with music by M. Ward.

Would you trust Guy Pearce to find your missing, dead relatives? With his memory? Okay, so he’s come a long way since Memento, but he’s going back on the hunt for people in a new comedy called Mis-Fits.He’s joined the film alongside Catalina Sandino Moreno (last seen in Twilight: Eclipse) Seymour Cassel (Kissing Strangers), The Women’s Cloris Leachman, and Virginie Ledoyen, who has largely been carving out an indie career and working on French films since The Beach.Mis-Fits is the handiwork of novelist/playwright/documentation Ld Napier (though the script isn’t adapted from any of her previous work) and she’s also snatching the chance to direct what producer Doug Claybourne tells the Hollywood Reporter is “a wacky comedy in the tone of Harold and Maude.” So there you go: hope for something dark, funny and classy.We’ll have to wait and »

Guy Pearce and Catalina Sandino Moreno have joined the cast of Mis-Fits , a supernatural comedy from L.D. Napier, reports The Hollywood Reporter . Likened to Harold and Maude and described as a "wacky comedy" by producer Doug Claybourne, Mis-Fits is said to deal with a "necro-detective" who searches for the spirits of the dead. Though unconfirmed, the Detective, Sam, is likely to be played by Pearce who will join the previously-attached Seymour Cassel and Cloris Leachman. L.D. Napier, who wrote the script, will also direct. Best known for her work as a playwright, including the 2008 production "The G Word: For Those Born Later". Napier also wrote the novel "Here Comes the Sun...", inspired by true stories of Hurricane Katrina. »
Among the things Monaghan shared were the following: Robert Pattinson ("Edward Cullen") wore karate pants for the fight scene; Kellan Lutz ("Emmett Cullen") is purposefully dressed lighter to accentuate is muscles; Kristen Stewart ("Bella Swan") was originally scheduled to wear a bathing suit in the Renee/Florida scene, but Monaghan helped relieve her of that responsibility by pointing out the fact that it was cold; Catalina Sandino Moreno ("Maria") is "actually wearing [Jasper's] jacket and sash over her skirt"; Bryce Dallas Howard ("Victoria")'s wardrobe was given a »
Xavier Samuel as Riley, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse The Twilight Saga: Eclipse grossed $8.78m on Day 8, once again topping the North American box-office chart, according to Box Office Mojo. Directed by David Slade, and starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner Eclipse fell below the $10m-per-day mark for the first time since opening day. Attendance on Wednesday was down a relatively small 16.9% from the day before. (Nearly every movie on the top twelve chart had double-digit drops.) To date, Eclipse has collected $195.73m domestically, which means it’ll be crossing the $200m mark some time today — a day earlier than I expected. Also in the Eclipse cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Kellan Lutz, Xavier Samuel, Dakota Fanning, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Elizabeth Reaser, Julia Jones, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Michael Welch, Anna Kendrick, and Billy Burke.

With The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, there were quite a few small parts in the film that went to noteworthy actors. The part of "Maria" went to the Oscar-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno, Kirsten Prout had one line in the film as "Lucy," and Peter Murphy of Bauhaus even helmed a tiny role for Eclipse.
With Jack Huston - who's been in Eastwick and films like Factory Girl before but whose career is definitely on the rising end of the hyperbola - he became "Royce King" for the picture, and Details Magazine has an interview with him where he explains exactly how that happened.
"I auditioned for another part—a newborn vampire—and kind of shocked the producers. I acted like a junkie. I hadn’t slept the night before and had drunk lots of coffee. Everyone was like, 'Um, a little too ed »

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Eclipse The Twilight Saga: Eclipse reviews are in. The ones featured below are definitely more downbeat than the two positive ones from trade papers Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. (Some of the reviewers clearly haven’t read the book on which the movie is based — or if they have, they weren’t paying attention while reading it, e.g., not getting what the Volturi are doing near Forks.) Directed by David Slade, Eclipse stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. As in Twilight and New Moon, Melissa Rosenberg adapted Stephenie Meyer‘s novel. The supporting cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Kellan Lutz, Xavier Samuel, Dakota Fanning, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Elizabeth Reaser, Billy Burke, Daniel Cudmore, Anna Kendrick, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Michael Welch, Alex Meraz, Tyson Houseman, BooBoo Stewart, Bronson Pelletier, and Jodelle Ferland. Eclipse opens tonight at midnight. Fans are already lining up. »

I have to admit, the results of this poll surprise me a bit. Fandango polled more than 1,700 "Eclipse" ticket shoppers to see who they consider the most exciting new addition to the cast. BooBoo Stewart, who plays 15-year-old Quileute werewolf Seth Clearwater, earned himself 33% of the votes, the highest by a fairly wide margin. Coming in at #2 with 19% of the vote is Xavier Samuel, who plays doomed Victoria henchman Riley. Frankly, I would have pegged Samuel for #1. But what do I know?
Here are the results of the poll so you can see the full spread:
- Seth Clearwater (BooBoo Stewart) 33%
- Riley (Xavier Samuel) 19%
- Bree (Jodelle Ferland) 16%
- Quil Ateara (Tyler Housman) 10%
- Lucy (Kirsten Prout) 8%
- Leah Clearwater (Julia Jones) 8%
- Maria (Catalina Sandino Moreno) 4%
- Royce King II, Rosalie’s fiance (Jack Huston) 3%
Would any of you Twilighters care to venture a guess why BooBoo would come out on top? »
