The highest honor a film actor writer or director can receive is recognition by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, aka The Oscar. Sometimes winning or even just being nominated for the coveted little gold man can be the greatest thing for a career. But sometimes, it weighs over your head like a dark gold-plated little cloud, waiting to burst. Here are some of the Oscars biggest career curses and blessings.
5. Blessing: James Cromwell
James Cromwell was a 6ft 7inch character actor who was more apt to be cast as lanky geeks in his early career (He played Lewis’ equally geeky Dad in ‘Revenge Of the Nerds’). But in 1996, his terrific nearly silent performance as Farmer Hoggett in the runaway smash ‘Babe’ landed him a much deserved Best Supporting Actor nomination and put him on Hollywood’s map. Although he lost the award to Kevin Spacey for ‘The Usual Suspects’, since then, »

The drama focuses on a couple played by James Cromwell ("Babe") and Geneviève Bujold ("Coma") who run afoul of assorted bureaucracies as they try to build a home.

Monsters Inc. was released over a decade ago in November, 2001, between Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo. The Incredibles followed soon after. It was this run of films that made the name 'Pixar' synonymous with 'Quality'.
Cars 2 and Brave, though, haven't exactly set the world on fire. Pixar's inclusion into Disney, although way back in 2006, might arguably be diluting the product. Will Monsters University, the sequel to Monsters Inc., be a return to those great heights, or a piece of exploitation by a mouse-faced corporation?
Billy Crystal, the voice of Sully (the green, spherical man), has revealed a few plot points for the film in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“[Mike and Sully] end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition — like Greek Games in college,” says Crystal. “They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge of the Nerds-monsters, and get them ready to be scary. »

'Throughout the advert he wears only a pair of bright yellow shorts and shows himself how life should be lived'
Popular culture has given us some memorable alter egos, from Killer Bob in Twin Peaks to Fight Club's Tyler Durden. Now we have the star of the new Peugeot 208 advert. (We don't catch his name, so let's call him the Peugeot Pervert.) It begins when a complete loser (the side parting, grey cardigan and empty face are a giveaway for students of physical characterisation) finds a human-shaped package. It's not his daughter, wrapped in plastic, but the unfettered version of himself, who has 'I Am Your Body' tattooed on his otherwise naked chest. Throughout the advert he wears only a pair of bright yellow shorts – a look that has you hoping he'll bound into the nearest working men's club, endeavouring to spread the love – and shows himself how life should be lived. »

Not alot is known about the plot in the eagerly awaited prequel to Monsters Inc., Monsters University. Until now, that is…sort of. Billy Crystal (who voices Mike) has been spilling his guts about the movie saying ““Mike and Sully end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition — like Greek Games in college,” The Oscar host goes onto say “They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge of the Nerds-monsters, and get them ready to be scary”. And Mike and Sully will be in the awkward phase as well, as they’re only 17/18 years old in the actual script, so they’re not going to be the cool kids on campus…sorry Monsters. Via EW

Billy Crystal talked about Pixar’s Monster University revealing a few more details on the story in a recent interview with EW.
Earlier this summer, teaser trailer showed us how Mike Wazowski (Crystal) and James ‘Sully’ Sullivan (John Goodman) weren’t always the best of friends. Therefore, Crystal revealed some new details about the two monsters college days.

We’ve already had a glimpse at the wacky, college-set goings-on promised by Pixar’s latest sequel, Monsters University. But the company has, as usual, been fairly quiet on the plot. Now Entertainment Weekly has gotten Billy Crystal – the wisecracking voice behind cycloptic beastie Mike Wazowski – to open up just a little on the story.While the trailer showed off life in the dorms, and the fact that Mike and future Bff Sulley (John Goodman) didn’t exactly start out the best of friends, Crystal has spilled some info about what will happen in the movie. Don’t read the next paragraph if you’re looking to stay entirely spoiler-free, but there are only minor details to be found.“Mike and Sulley end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition — like Greek Games in college,” says Crystal. “They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge Of The Nerds-monsters, »
As any fans of Pixar’s films will know, their next feature will continue their recent spate of non-original films (this year’s Brave being the exception) with the upcoming prequel Monsters University. Details are predictably scarce, but a few new tidbits of information have slipped through the void, courtesy of an EW interview with Billy Crystal.
We already know the basic premise of Monsters University; if not from the title, then at least from the four teasers released in June. The film follows Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan before the events of 2001′s Monsters Inc. and how they went from insufferable enemies to inseparable friends. Crystal, who returns with John Goodman to the roles of Mike and Sully respectively, told EW:
“[Mike and Sully] end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition — like Greek Games in college. They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge of the Nerds-monsters, »

With all the talk about “Finding Nemo 2,” people have quieted down about Pixar’s other upcoming, wholly unnecessary follow-up, “Monsters University,” a prequel to 2001’s mischievous and heartwarming “Monsters, Inc.,” which illuminates the collegiate background of monsters James P. “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal). Yes, it is the story we were all dying for. While talking to Entertainment Weekly about some movie we’ve never heard of, Crystal gave some tantalizing details about what to expect from the prequel (due in theaters next summer). “[Mike and Sully] end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition — like Greek Games in college,” Crystal told EW. “They have to mobilize a group, sort of like ‘Revenge of the Nerds’-monsters, and get them ready to be scary.” So, while the goofy teaser trailer (and the mere »

Next year’s Pixar prequel Monsters University has had a bit more light shed on it from Billy Crystal. Monsters University will find Sully and Mike at university learning to be scary. They don’t start out as friends and this latest installment will detail how they put their differences behind them.
Billy Crystal told Entertainment Weekly:
[Mike and Sully] end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition like Greek Games in college.They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge of the Nerds-monsters, and get them ready to be scary. They’re 17 and 18 years old in the script. My guy has a retainer, even.
Before Up!, Monsters Inc. was my favourite Pixar film due to its creativeness and humour. I don’t know how I feel about this prequel. It certainly seems unnecessary and the plot isn’t exactly grabbing my attention just yet. They »

Earlier this summer, Pixar released the first trailers for Monsters University, the prequel to Monsters, Inc. The trailers were cute, and they showed us how Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James "Sully" Sullivan (John Goodman) weren't always the best of friends. During interviews for his upcoming film Parental Guidance, Crystal revealed some new details about the two monsters college days. First, he explained that while the characters are now at college, they're still a little on the awkward side. "They’re 17 and 18 years old in the script," Crystal tells EW. "My guy has a retainer, even." Hit the jump for what Crystal had to say about the plot. The film also features the voices of Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray, and Peter Sohn. Monsters University opens in 3D on June 21, 2013. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Crystal explained how the guys are in a frat-house, but it's not the coolest one on campus. »
