New York (AP) — James Rebhorn, the prolific character actor whose credits included "Homeland," ''Scent of a Woman" and "My Cousin Vinny," has died. He was 65. Rebhorn's agent, Dianne Busch, said Sunday that the actor died Friday at his home in South Orange, N.J, after a long battle with skin cancer. Busch said Rebhorn was diagnosed with melanoma in 1992 but managed to work until the last month. In five decades of television and film work, Rebhorn amassed more than 100 credits, ranging from a shipping magnate in "The Talented Mr. Ripley" to the prosecutor in the series finale of "Seinfeld," in which he famously sent the group to jail. The lanky but piercing Rebhorn, raised a Lutheran in Indiana, often played astringent authorities, like the headmaster in "Scent of a Woman" or the Secretary of Defense in "Independence Day." On "Homeland," he played the father of Claire Danes' CIA officer Carrie Mathison. »

Here are six awards I'd like to see handed out
Most terrifying future technology
The winner is Her. Not for Samantha, who shows us a future where the importance of human interaction has diminished. Nor for Joaquin Phoenix's website, offering to write creepy heartfelt personal letters for people too busy to connect emotionally. No, it's because of the trousers. Who could possibly want to live in a future where everyone looks like Simon Cowell?
Film to inspire the most tedious broadsheet thinkpieces
If The Wolf of Wall Street wins an Oscar, we'll be reading: "Can we really forgive the bankers yet?" columns for weeks. If 12 Years a Slave wins, it'll be: "Why I've decided that slavery is bad". But if Blue Jasmine wins, we're done for. It'll be wall-to-wall Woody Allen opinions for the rest of the year. Let's give it this award and hope that's enough.
