Emma Watson, best known as Harry Potter’s bookish best friend Hermione Granger, announced that she will be Disney’s next princess – Belle! The Brown University graduate will be bringing her enviable combination of brains and beauty to Bill Condon’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been an announcement about who will play the Beast to Emma’s “Beauty.”

Who will be the Beast? We went through all the working heartthrobs of Hollywood, and picked our top candidates for the role.

Chris Pine

Can he sing? Yes. Chris starred in the adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods. Age: 34 (10 years older than Emma) Known For: Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit We asked you on Facebook and Twitter who you’d like to be Disney’s next prince. Chris Pine was the popular choice. Two other Chrises – Hemsworth and Evans – were very close behind in the votes. »

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Leads the 2015 BAFTA Nominees

9 January 2015 6:42 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ahead of the 72nd annual Golden Globes, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced the nominees for the 68th British Academy Film Awards (a.k.a. the BAFTAs) on Friday morning. Leading the pack is The Grand Budapest Hotel with 11 nominations.

The recognition for Wes Anderson’s comedy comes as a surprise since the film has only managed to pick up a handful of nominations in the U.S., including Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy and Best Director at the Golden Globes, which airs live on Sunday, Jan. 11.

BAFTA: ‘Budapest’ & Britannia Rule As Nominations Snub ‘Selma’, ‘Unbroken’

9 January 2015 4:11 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In something of a surprise this morning, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel emerged with the most BAFTA nominations at a total of 11. The movie had its world premiere in Berlin last year, meaning that on BAFTA night February 8, it will be one year and two days since its debut. It was released in Britain in March 2014 and I hear its screener was one of the first to arrive in British Academy members’ mailboxes at the start of the campaign season. The film was warmly embraced in the UK and went on to earn just under $20M. One voter suggested this morning, “People don’t forget great movies.”

Conversely, insiders suggest awareness was low on Selma. In a rather sizable snub, it was left out of the list unveiled today. That film’s screener, I’m told, was one of the last to arrive and the theatrical release is not until February, »

Ee BAFTA Nominations Announced

9 January 2015 12:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It may be cold and miserable outside but the film award season is here to keep you company on these nasty winter evenings. The glitz and glamour of Hollywood will be descending on our capital very soon as London once again hosts the BAFTA awards ceremony. There’s nothing quite like the BAFTA’s, which are essentially a British version of the Oscars, it is an event which celebrates all that is good about British film. It even has something the other ceremonies don’t; a fan voted award honouring the up-and-comers in the acting circuit.

This morning Stephen Fry and Sam Claflin braved getting up whilst it was still dark to host the award announcements at the prestigious BAFTA building. 2014 was a very strong year for film, with the early releases of this year well up for the challenge. Earlier this week we brought you the Ee Rising Star »

'Grand Budapest Hotel' 'Birdman,' 'Theory Of Everything' Lead BAFTA Nominations, 'Selma' Shut Out

8 January 2015 11:54 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Voting is now closed, so it's less than a week to go before the announcement of the Oscar nominations (catch up on our last minute wish-list of outliers we'd like to see right here), but the precursor awards keep coming in: we had the WGA nominations on Wednesday, the DGA nods next Tuesday, and this morning saw Stephen Fry and Sam Claflin reveal the nominations for the 68th British Academy Film Awards (aka the BAFTAs). This particular awards ceremony has become an increasingly good indicator of how the Oscars will end up going (perhaps to a fault): last year, relative surprise nominees like "Philomena," Christian Bale and Sally Hawkins were predicted by BAFTA, but there is an obvious home advantage with respect to British fare. The bigger winner of the day was Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" —once dismissed as being released too early in the year to be an awards player, »

Announced on Facebook at the bright and early hour of 7.35 am, the nominations for the 2015 BAFTA awards have finally arrived, giving the world a tiny insight into who might win an Oscar this year, and a much bigger one into who will win a BAFTA.The leader of the pack? Well, it's all to play for, but The Grand Budapest Hotel has done well (with 11 nominations), as has The Theory Of Everything and Birdman (each with ten). Encouragingly, Pride and Nightcrawler have also garnered attention, with four and three nominations respectively. Odd to note that Timothy Spall's take on Turner was ignored - as was Mr. Turner itself, in the Best British Film category - while Steve Carell is a supporting actor in Foxcatcher.Unveiled to the world on that social media thingummy called Facebook, Hunger Gameser Sam Claflin joined forces with the chief shiny metal face distributor himself, »
