Forget the snubs, let's talk style! Luckily for us the 2014 SAG Awards nominees have lots of it. There's the red carpet pros such as Kerry Washington, Sandra Bullock and Claire Danes. Those seasoned vets are sure to wow us come January 18. Then there are the up-and-comers: Ladies like Lupita Nyong'o, who we have complete confidence will nail her first turn on the SAG red carpet—especially since her track record this fall has been basically flawless. And while Jennifer Lawrence isn't exactly a newbie, she's still finding her signature look so it will be fun to see what she changes next awards season. Of course, there are tons more stars (Oprah!

This week’s issue of EW is going to feature a lot of T & A.
That’s Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, you sickos. The two women, who will host the Golden Globes next month for the second year in a row, accepted a one-week job to become guest editors of EW. What does that mean, you ask? It means they wrote the Must List and Bullseye, assigned several stories and ran down the hallway screaming things like, “Orphan Black is the new Orange is the New Black!” and “Change all fonts to Comic Sans at once!” Of course, if »

This year's SAG Awards nominees took out their humble card Wednesday morning to thank their peers for the recognition and we're guessing a majority of their reactions were not written by their personal publicists. A few others? Well, judge for yourself. To check out reactions from Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto, Tom Hanks and more, check out the embedded gallery below. »

Robert Knepper has been cast as Antonius, President Snow’s minister, in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay,” Lionsgate announced Wednesday on Twitter. “Catching Fire” filmmaker Francis Lawrence returns to direct the two-part “Hunger Games” finale, which is based on the third novel in the bestselling series by Suzanne Collins.

There's not a lot to say about the character at this point, because it seems to be someone all new to the universe. Seeing as how the final two movies focus on the rebellion against the Capitol, it's possible he will play a role one of of the two sides of that war. Whether he's a friend or foe of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) remains to be seen.
Outside of "Mob City," Knepper is best remembered as Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell on Fox's "Prison Break." He later reprised the role on an episode of "Breakout Kings." The actor has also appeared on "The Blacklist" as The Courier.
"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" is scheduled to arrive in theaters November 21, 2014. »

As part of YouTube' year-end rewind, viewers are invited to watch the most-viewed videos of the year across a number of different genres. Most of these are pretty straightforward, but one category reveals an interesting trend. The most-viewed news videos of the year stand as evidence that more people are turning to online video to learn about the day's top stories. As in previous years, some of the top news videos of the year are the sort of silly stories that have made an impact on YouTube in the past. Charles Ramsey's candid interview made the top ten, as did a Russell Brand interview with BBC, a viral video of a Japanese rockslide, and a funny moment between Jennifer Lawrence and Jack Nicholson at the Oscars. The rest of the top ten read as a rundown of the year's top news stories. Two videos from the Boston bombings made the list, »

On Monday, MTV’s Music and News divisions selected Miley Cyrus as Best Artist of 2013, due in large part to her controversial twerkfest with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.

Hustle Bustle: Russell Returns With Surprising Verve
Just when you thought David O. Russell’s American Hustle might bow as an attempt at an awards friendly version of something Martin Scorsese may have helmed, think again. The sometimes explosive, sometimes notorious director, coming off two helpings of crowd pleasing entrees with 2010’s The Fighter and 2012’s The Silver Linings Playbook, has concocted his most thoroughly enjoyable film in years, a slickly paced con game that’s so frenetically enjoyable, it’ll fool you into believing it’s even more substantial than it really is.
While its characters are graced with the sort of melancholy notes that staunchly overruled miserable existences of the persons populating his last efforts, Russell strikes an overtly comedic pose here, a droll comedy of idiots, made a titch more scathing because, as we’re honestly informed in the opening credits, ‘some of this actually happened.’ In truth, »

Steve McQueen's biopic of a free man forced into slavery in pre-Civil War America claims four key nominations from prominent industry body, buttressing Oscar chances
• News: 12 Years ... receives critics awards ahead of Oscars
• News: 12 Years ... tops Independent Spirit Awards nominations
The future looks bright for 12 Years a Slave, Steve McQueen's acclaimed account of American slavery, as the film lead the field at nominations for the 20th Screen Actors Guild awards. McQueen's drama picked up four nominations, including the crowning prize for ensemble cast. Lee Daniels' The Butler, Jean-Marc Vallee's Dallas Buyers Club and John Wells's adaptation of Tracy Letts's August: Osage County bagged three nominations apiece.
In addition to being shortlisted for the cast, 12 Years a Slave gained a best actor nomination for Chiwetel Ejiofor's portrayal of Solomon Northup, sold into bondage in the American south. Lupita Nyong'o was shortlisted for the best supporting actress »

Robert Redford, where art thou? Today’s SAG nominations may be pretty straightforward, but Redford’s omittance is more than a little surprising. But, as I said recently, campaigning pays, even if you are a seasoned professional. Replaced in the top five by Forest Whitaker, this doesn’t mean the Academy won’t opt for him, but with late screeners of The Wolf Of Wall Street and American Hustle finally making an impression, DiCaprio and Bale are just as hungry for that fifth spot.
12 Years A Slave unsurprisingly leads the pack, with only one nomination for Gravity, though Cuaron’s film is far less of a threat in the categories SAG celebrates. After its recent push, Spike Jonze’s Her is left in the cold without even Best Ensemble recognition, but this isn’t necessarily gospel for the critics’ darling. Nebraska also loses out on a Best Ensemble nod, and, »

The award season is now in full swing. This morning, SAG-aftra announced the nominees for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Nominations and wins at these awards often add to one’s Oscar hopes, so it’s always interesting to see which projects are getting the most attention.
One neat personal note here is that, since I’ve been a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild for 7 years, I get to cast my votes on all of these. Looking forward to that.
And the nominees are…
20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

Nominations have been announced for the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. In film, Steve McQueen’s “12 Years A Slave” leads with four nominations. Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, Meryl Streep, and Emma Thompson all earned recognition in film’s Female Lead category, and the late James Gandolfini is nominated for an award for his supporting role in “Enough Said.” Others up for awards for their supporting roles are Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Barkhad Abdi ("Captain Phillips"), Daniel Bruhl ("Rush"), and Michael Fassbender ("12 Years a Slave"); Oprah Winfrey, June Squibb, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts, and Jennifer Lawrence are nominated in the female supporting role category. It’s a three way split in TV land with “Breaking Bad,” “Modern Family” and “The Big Bang Theory” tying for most nominations. The ensemble casts for “Boardwalk Empire,” “Breaking Bad,” “Homeland,” “Downton Abbey,” and “Game of Thrones” were all nominated for the Outstanding Drama category, »
Sneak Peek official wardrobe designs by Michael Wilkinson for the upcoming 1970's-set feature "American Hustle", starring Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Christian Bale, plus all the footage released to date:
Amy Adams plays an amateur 'grifter' and Lawrence plays 'Rosalyn Rosenfeld', the 'unpredictable' wife of 'Irving Rosenfeld' (Bale), a con artist who is forced to assist the FBI in their investigation.
"...'American Hustle' is the story of a con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians - namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey..."
"American Hustle" opens December 25, 2013.

As career con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) introduces newly-undercover FBI agent Richie Dimaso (Bradley Cooper) to his world of criminal enterprise, he shows him a Rembrandt painting in a museum, revealing that it’s a fake. Millions of people have seen and admired it, not realizing that it’s not the original. Does it matter if they get the same artistic enjoyment out of it?
David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” is about that kind of superficial subterfuge, both in the fascinating story it tells and even in its filmmaking, as Russell clearly cribs from Martin Scorsese films like “GoodFellas” and “Casino” like a forger copying a Rembrandt. It is a wildly entertaining piece of work that features one of the best ensembles of the year. A crime film with very little violence, Russell’s drama is a character-based movie that falls just short of the masterpieces it mimics »

It was a good day for some and a bad day for many as the Screen Actors Guild--a more populist group than the more rarified Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences--announced the nominees for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (full list below). Two nominating panels — one for television and one for film — each comprised of 2,200 randomly picked union members from across the country, chose this year’s nominees. Integrity Voting Systems, the Awards’ official teller, mailed the secret nomination ballots on Wednesday, Nov. 20, with voting was complete by noon on Monday, Dec. 9. This means that late entries "American Hustle" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," especially, may not have been seen by all the voters. "American Hustle" managed to squeeze in an ensemble nomination as well as a supporting nod for hot-as-flapjacks Jennifer Lawrence, but Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" scored zip.

The Screen Actors Guild has announced the nominations for its 20th annual awards and Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" led the pack with 4 nominations including a best ensemble mention and nods for Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o.
"August: Osage County," "Dallas Buyers Club," and "Lee Daniels' The Butler" each received 3 nominations. The biggest snub in my humble opinion? Robert Redford from "All is Lost!" The film was simply relegated to the Action Performance category.

Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
"12 Years A Slave"
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a Slave
