Oscar wins tend to lead to bigger paydays for actors, directors and other creative talents. It.s a big part of the reason why the annual Oscar race is as cutthroat as it has become. Having the description "Academy Award winner" ahead of your name drives up your asking price. So we knew that Sandra Bullock . already a huge star . would earn more bank following her Oscar win for The Blind Side. We just never imagined that the sky literally would be the limit for the former Speed star. Bullock, according to a report in THR, stands to earn more than $70 million for her participation in Alfonso Cuaron.s Oscar-nominated space thriller Gravity. a movie that earned Bullock her second nomination. It will be her biggest payday to date. Bullock reportedly earned $20 million upfront to carry Cuaron.s lost-in-space picture. But the actress brilliantly agreed to take "15 percent of first-dollar »
Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Justified, “Raw Deal” written by VJ Boyd and directed by Bill Johnson, stop reading now. As he’ll do throughout the season, showrunner Graham Yost takes us inside the writers room.
Entertainment Weekly: Let’s start with Art putting Raylan on walk-in duty. In the end, Raylan was pissed enough to tell Art that he’s taking a vacation and when he gets back Art will either treat him like a deputy again or transfer him.
Graham Yost: We were just like, how are we going to kick off this story? »

Speed, bitch! Today, we've got two new clips from Scott Waugh's Need For Speed, starring Jesse Pinkman himself, Aaron Paul, as well as Imogen Poots, Dominic West, Dakota Johnson, Scott Mescudi, and Michael Keaton. The first clip highlights Keaton's character "Monarch" who gives a strange "Keaton-ish" performance as an announcer for the DeLeon, the cross-country race that Paul's character is taking part in.

Just as Rufus (George Carlin) predicted, Bill and Ted have had a profound influence on our culture. Maybe not as the rockers who would inspire a utopian global society by the 27th century, but look at how many other dumb-duo movies there have been since the release 25 years ago this week (on February 17, 1989) of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" -- there's "Dumb and Dumber," "Beavis and Butt-head Do America," "Dude, Where's My Car," "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion," "Dick," and all of Kevin Smith's "Jay and Silent Bob" offerings, for starters. Plus, "Bill & Ted" launched a franchise and made a leading man out of Keanu Reeves.
Still, as often as you've traveled back in time and revisited the "Excellent Adventure," there's probably still plenty you don't know about the movie, including where it was filmed (hint: Not in San Dimas, California), which historical figures almost found their way into the film, »

Jay Leno said goodbye to The Tonight Show for the second time in his career on Thursday. Gone for good? So he joked. “I don’t need to be fired three times! I get the hint!” And so he wept, during his most personal — and arguably best — moment of his 22-year run as the custodian of the hallowed late night institution. “It really is time for me to go and hand it off to the next guy.” His last hour was a pretty good one, highlighted by the pure-pop moment of Billy Crystal bringing out a bunch of stars — Jack Black, »

Sandra Bullock has had a varied and extended career filled with several highs. Most recently, she took 2013 by storm with her powerful, Oscar-nominated performance in Gravity. However, her career has also been litered with several lows, including her Razzie-winning role in All About Steve and those needless sequels to Miss Congeniality and Speed. Here at VH1, we took it upon ourselves to go back and re-watch, review and rank her 30+ films. That’s right everything from Forces of Nature to Two Weeks Notice finds its place among Bullock’s best films listed from worst to best.
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 3%
Box Office: $164 million
30. All About Steve

The intensity of Speed mixed with the classical beauty of Mozart’s “Symphony No. 40″ – Grand Piano in a nutshell. I know it’s hard to imagine some type of fruitful marriage between a Keanu Reeves movie and technically masterful key-tickling, but when the increasingly intriguing Elijah Wood is the nervous victim of some gun-toting psycho’s sinister plan, you’ve grabbed my full attention – especially after such a commanding performance in Maniac. Maestro Eugenio Mira conducts a thrilling bit of cinema accompanied by flowing scoring from writer Damien Chazelle, but it’s Wood’s performance that’s most worthy of an appreciative standing ovation. Bravissimo!
Musician Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) is one of the most prolific pianists of his generation, but after choking on stage much to the disappointment of his audience, Selznick disappeared from mainstream fame. Five years after his captured flub, it’s Tom’s lover Emma (Kerry Bishé »

Zachary Leeman: Let’s start by breaking down how you started in the business? How did you first become a paid screenwriter? Explain the hustle to me and to aspiring screenwriters that may be reading this.
John Sullivan: Growing up, I thought I wanted to be a novelist. I read voraciously. My addictions were mostly Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Herbert and the occasional Tom Clancy actioner. I was a little too young to understand the political thrillers, but I tried. I attempted a few half-written books, and they were terrible. It wasn’t until I was 14 or so that I understood what a screenwriter did. I was an enormous movie fan.
I never played sports, I wasn’t incredibly social and so I watched 2-3 movies a day. »

The Point Break remake has been turning its wheels steadily but slowly, following Alcon Entertainment’s initial announcement that the 1991 thriller would be getting a proper makeover (technically, The Fast and the Furious doesn’t count as a remake). When last we reported on the project, it was slated to begin filming before 2013 drew to a close; that didn’t happen, but right now it’s looking pretty likely that principal photography will get underway within the next six months or so.
Point Break – starring the late Patrick Swayze, a pre-Speed (but post-Bill & Ted) Keanu Reeves, and directed by a pre-Oscars glory Kathleen Bigelow – follows “F! B! I! Agent!” Utah (Reeves) as he goes ...

Dorian's emotional side gets the better of him in this week's Almost Human...
This review contains spoilers.
1.7 Simon Says
Early on in this episode my hopes got raised that we’d be getting to the real reason that the Drn series was discontinued, but that wasn’t the case.
However, that didn’t make the outbursts from Dorian any less entertaining, as he suffers wild mood swings having not been given a full recharge.
Michael Ealy has been enjoying himself as Dorian, and this continues unabashed as he takes his character in some obtuse directions in scenes that could so easily have been unscripted.
Between the wilder side of the Drn series, we’ve got a longer plot arc about Dorian wanting to live outside the Police precinct, and a narrative that’s borrowed directly from the Keanu classic Speed (1994). All that’s missing »
