Best Foreign-Language Film Academy Award submissions 2015
The Danish Oscar Committee chose the film directed by Nils Malmros from a shortlist that also included Niels Arden Oplev’s Speed Walking (Kapgang) and Pernille Fischer Christensen’s Someone You Love (En du elsker).
“It was a difficult decision, with three very personal films from well-known directors were are proud of, but it was an unanimous choice” said committee chairman Henrik Bo Nielsen, MD of the Danish Film Institute.
“After a long career, Malmros is still a strong narrator, who dares stand out – he is not afraid of approaching taboos, he deals with universal themes and gently touches us all.”

New CW shows (so far): The Originals, Reign, and The Tomorrow People.
How does The CW decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play an important role. The higher the ratings, the better chance a show has of surviving. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »

At this point, most Disney fans know that if they are sitting down to watch a Disney movie on a Friday night with a glass of red wine and their cats sleeping next to them (ugh, that sounds so amazing we wish we were doing that right now), they know that they'll either be watching characters who lose their parents, or just simply don't have any. It's a Disney thing. But when you think about, it's mostly the mother characters that are missing in Disney films. They either lose them before the movie even begins, or they just aren't mentioned at all, or the mother characters aren't given much screen time. The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin…where are the mothers? What happened? And why is »
Over the course of its cinematic history, Disney has produced a number of memorable villains, both from its original tales and from its retelling of classic lore. One such villain is Gaston, from the 1991 movie Beauty and the Beast, known mostly for his vanity. Like most Disney villains, Gaston meets his end at the climax of the film, this time by slipping as he stabbed the Beast. Now a new video has been created by Above Average productions exploring how Gaston would react to being turned away from Heaven by the gatekeeper St. Peter. The video is part of an ongoing series by the channel where St. Peter, played by George Basil, meets and interacts with various Disney villains as he rejects their entry into Heaven. The video with Gaston, who is played by Chris Smith, can be seen below.

Tim here. Earlier today, we posted our Team Top 10 for the best voice performances in the movies, focusing on ten individual performances that impressed us the most. But as good as those vocal performances all are, I wanted to follow that post up by singing the praises of a different sort of voice acting. As great as any one performance in a single feature film can be, there’s also something truly exceptional about those people who have created entire careers out of voice acting without necessarily having the kind of showcase roles we were talking about today. With that in mind, I’d like to share this list of some of the most important contemporary voice actors that you should know about.
Why you know him: He’s the current voice of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger for Disney.
Where else you’ve heard him: An astonishingly prolific Disney workhorse, »

Producer Don Hahn reveal’s a secret about Walt Disney’s past.
Ever notice how Disney characters—especially Disney princesses—rarely have moms? Their moms are either dead, have gone missing, or are otherwise unaccounted for? Ariel didn’t have one:
Cinderella didn’t either (fairy godmothers and evil step-mothers don’t count):
And while recent characters like Merida and Tiana did have moms, Frozen looped it back around, with not only Elsa and Anna’s mom dying at the beginning of the movie, but their dad too.
Glamour recently had a chance to sit down with legendary producer Don Hahn, who worked on The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, as well as executive produced the Angelina Jolie version Maleficent and ask. Here’s why:
“I’ll give you two stories that are the reasons. I never talk about this, but I will. One reason is practical because the movies are 80 or 90 minutes long, and »

As the two fight it out, Dean has a disturbing message about his new state: “I like disease.” (Fret not, there’s some of the old Dean in there, too, enjoying porn and ladies.)
Also on tap: Crowley thinks he and Dean are “the perfect Hell”; Castiel tries to reason with Sam; and Dean sings (poorly executed) karaoke. »

The Academy has a long and complex relationship with musicals, particularly with their ability to secure best picture nominations. The best picture nomination for Les Miserables (2012) at the 85th Academy Awards marked the first time since Chicago’s (2002) nomination and win that a musical was nominated in that category, and as of this moment, there aren’t many options that could break into the category this year.
Since premiering at Toronto, The Last 5 Years — the film adaption of the off-broadway musical written by Jason Robert Brown — has been receiving decent reviews but nothing that would propel it to best picture status. The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney said both Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan bring “confidence and depth of feeling” to their songs and “shift back and forth between rom-com breeziness and full-blown passion, be it the soaring highs or the heartsick lows” with ease, »

The fourth season of "Once Upon a Time" is almost upon us, and with it comes a new, extended look at what's in store for viewers and the residents of Storybrooke.
The biggest change is that characters from "Frozen" have entered the "Once" world, and as we see in this promo, they aren't exactly making friends with the locals. Elsa (Georgina Haig) immediately declares herself queen, which irks Regina (Lana Parrilla), and sets in motion a battle royale between the two powerful, power-hungry women.
Viewers also get a sneak peek at some familiar faces, too, including Belle and Rumplestiltskin, who dress like their animated Disney counterparts (Beauty and the Beast, respectively) and take a whirl on the dance floor. It's all positively enchanting, though with Elsa and Regina gearing up for all-out war, things probably won't remain that idyllic forever.
"Once Upon a Time" is set for its fourth season premiere on September 28 on ABC. »

After recounting the many famous fairytale folk that have appeared on the ABC series to date, the above promo — which was created for the Disney Parks — peeks at Storybrooke’s reaction to Queen Elsa (and vice versa). There’s also a bit of Regina scheming with her old friend The Magic Mirror, »
The magical world of Once Upon a Time will grow this season with the introduction of several Frozen characters, but the residents of Storybrooke aren’t lacking on their own drama, either.
An extended trailer for the new season proves just how fierce Elsa is when she comes to town. But Regina may already have plans for the Ice Queen—that, or she’s enlisting the Mirror’s help in removing Maid Marian, Robin Hood’s long-dead wife who came back with Emma and Hook from the past.

In the real-life tabloids, second-eldest royal siblings are often portrayed as the more “out of control” children, with less royal responsibility. But TV and movies are just as fascinated (if not more so) with noble siblings, and according to pop culture, being second in the royal bloodline could mean any number of other things, too. Here are a few more specific lessons that Prince George’s future sibling might want to take into account. »
