'The Newsroom's' Sam Waterston: Not reading reviews is 'a much nicer place to be'

25 August 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Sam Waterston couldn't be happier to be in the hot seat in Season 2 of "The Newsroom."

As Atlantis Cable News chief Charlie Skinner on the Aaron Sorkin-created HBO drama series, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor is among those playing witnesses being deposed about an alleged war crime labeled Operation Genoa, Acn's related story having been proven to be built on wrong information.

Sunday's (Aug. 25) new episode takes the internal probe to its peak ... and heads may roll, including Charlie's.

"Just you wait!," Waterston gleefully tells Zap2it. "The thing that's so amazing about what Aaron does is that most stories content themselves with tying one person to the tracks, then having the train bear down on them. But he's got so many irons in the fire, so many balls in the air, it's just astounding how he does this."

Not only is the result dramatically sound to Waterston, »

Hollywood’s John Wilkes Booth

14 April 2013 6:47 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The St. Louis Globe-Democrat is a monthly newspaper run by Steve DeBellis, a well know St. Louis historian, and it’s the largest one-man newspaper in the world. The concept of The Globe is that there is an old historic headline, then all the articles in that issue are written as though it’s the year that the headline is from. It’s an unusual concept but the paper is now in its 25th successful year! Steve and I collaborated in May of 2011 on an all-Vincent Price issue of The Globe and I’ve been writing a regular monthly movie-related column since. Since there is no on-line version of The Globe, I post all of my articles here at We Are Movie Geeks. This month’s edition of The Globe takes place in 1865, the year President Lincoln was shot .Steve and I originally decided I would write an article »

Oscars: Seth MacFarlane's best, worst and most controversial jokes

25 February 2013 2:57 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Seth MacFarlane's debut as host of the Oscars inevitably proved divisive. Some enjoyed his more risqué humour, while others found his songs about "boobs" and 'controversial' zingers more childish than funny.

If you didn't catch the show, Digital Spy has rounded up MacFarlane's gags so that you can make up your own mind on whether the Family Guy creator was a hit or a miss.

1. On Ben Affleck's snub in the 'Best Director' category

"Argo tells the previously classified story about an American hostage rescue in post-revolutionary Iran. The story was so top secret that the film's director is unknown to the Academy."

2. On Daniel Day-Lewis's method acting

"Daniel Day-Lewis, your process fascinates me. You were totally 100% in character as Lincoln during the making of the movie… So when you saw a cell phone, would you have to go, 'Oh my God, what's that?!' If you »

Day-Lewis Doesn't Forget Fellow Actor Bypassed by Screen Actors Guild Voters

27 January 2013 9:28 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

SAG Awards 2013: Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence [See previous post: "SAG Awards: Ben Affleck Argo to Win Best Picture Oscar?"] Daniel Day-Lewis was the Best Actor SAG Award winner for Steven Spielberg’s acclaimed historical drama Lincoln. In his acceptance speech, Day-Lewis acknowledged not only his fellow Best Actor nominees, but also non-nominee Joaquin Phoenix, whose performance in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master was bypassed by SAG Award voters. (Photo: Daniel Day-Lewis SAG Awards 2013.) Additionally, Day-Lewis thanked "my friends" Leonardo DiCaprio and Liam Neeson, and joked that perhaps because Abraham Lincoln was killed by an actor, John Wilkes Booth, actors have frequently tried to bring Lincoln back to life. Before Daniel Day-Lewis, the movies’ Abraham Lincolns include those of Joseph Henabery, Walter Huston, John Carradine, Henry Fonda, Raymond Massey (a Best Actor Oscar nominee for Abe Lincoln in Illinois), and, most recently, Benjamin Walker. Of note: Lincoln marked Daniel Day-Lewis’ third Best Actor SAG Award victory. His previous two wins were for »

10 January 2013 2:01 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

By Hannah Soo Park

Forget about all the snubs and surprises. Now that the official list of Academy Award nominations is finally upon us, it's time to test your knowledge about our notable contenders. Whether you're in a heated predictions debate or simply trying to be the know-it-all at your buddy's viewing party, we've got the facts and figures to engage, impress or simply satisfy your inner-Oscar geek.

Who are the newbies and who's been nominated before?

Aside from the fact that they're all nominated for Best Supporting Actor (duh), they've also all won in that particular category before.
