Watch: 'Saturday Night Live' Sketch 'Fanatic' Written & Directed By Paul Thomas Anderson And Starring Ben Affleck

22 January 2015 10:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fifteen years ago, what would you have imagined the future held for Paul Thomas Anderson? What about Ben Affleck?   In 2000, Affleck was coming off of “Dogma,” “Shakespeare in Love” and “Armageddon.” Sure, he’d already won an Oscar (along with Matt Damon) for writing “Good Will Hunting.” But he was yet to make his feature directorial debut, which would come seven years later with “Gone Baby Gone.” The notion of “Argo” wouldn’t yet be viable, nor would the thought of casting him as Batman. Similarly, P.T.A.’s career was just revving up. He had made “Magnolia,” “Boogie Nights” and “Hard Eight,” but “Punch Drunk Love,” “There Will Be Blood,” and this year’s Best Adapted Screenplay nominee (and our pick for 10th Best Film of the Year) “Inherent Vice” were all yet to be conceived.  So consider this a Throwback Thursday of epic proportions —behold the Paul Thomas Anderson written/directed, »

Few No. 1 Billboard Hits Win Big at the Oscars

From the 79 original songs on the Oscar shortlist, five were nominated a week ago on Jan. 15: “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, “Glory” from Selma, “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me and “Lost Stars” from Begin Again.

Following a recent trend, none of the nominees have made it to the top of the BIllboard Hot 100 chart, which tracks the success of  singles by looking at radio play, online streaming and sales.

Following the announcement of the nominations, “Glory” made its debut at No. 25 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart dated Jan. 31 and is currently No. 92 on the Billboard Hot 100.

When “Everything Was Awesome” debuted in January 2014, the song debuted at No. 7 on the Dance/Electronic Songs chart and peaked at No. 57 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

Gale Anne Hurd Honored with David O. Selznick Achievement Award

21 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After more than three decades working in film and television, producer Gale Anne Hurd says the basic tenet of her success has always been about preparing for every possible outcome on a project.

“Then you’re not stuck having to solve things when there’s truly no time to get it wrong,” says Hurd, who will receive the 2015 David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Motion Pictures at the Jan. 24 Producers Guild of America Awards ceremony.

“Going back to (1984’s) ‘The Terminator,’ I would have dreams about possible production problems, so I would have a list of plan B, plan C, plan D. Because everything that can go wrong will go wrong.”

Hurd started in the business as Roger Corman’s executive assistant at New World Pictures, eventually working her way up to head of marketing.“The Terminator,” which she also co-wrote, was the turning point, launching Hurd’s career as a producer. »

Watch: Michael Bay Reveals The "Secret Sauce" Of 'Age Of Extinction' Action Scenes In 11-Minute Video

14 January 2015 7:19 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He may be the most mocked auteur in film history, but Michael Bay is second only to Steven Spielberg as the highest-grossing director of all time. For all his offensiveness to a very vocal group of “serious” moviegoers, Bay is still king of the multiplex. Why? The answer may lie in a featurette from the “Transformers: Age of Extinction” Blu-ray. Tilted “Bay on Action," the Blu-ray bonus feature sees the much-maligned director break down his style —he loves to start wide and then cut in close to focus on small moments within set pieces— and explains how he nailed down some of the sequences in the film. For all his faults, it can’t be said that Bay doesn’t care immensely about the action in his films and that attention to detail is probably what draws someone like Christopher Nolan to Bay’s work. His level of craft is »

Could Dan Gilroy Become the Sixth Director Oscar-Nommed for First Feature?

13 January 2015 6:56 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Managing Editor 

Screenwriter Dan Gilroy made his directorial this year with Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a corrupt freelance crime reporter who will do anything to get a story. Since the film’s premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, it’s garnered Oscar buzz and has been compared to best picture winner Crash (2004).  It holds a 95 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, was named one of AFI’s top 10 films of the year and received four BAFTA nominations, as well as three Critics’ Choice Awards. Gyllenhaal has earned Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice acting nominations. If Gilroy were to earn a nomination for best director, like Crash did, he would become the sixth director in the 21st century to achieve that accolade.

Tony Gilroy, Dan’s older brother, earned his first Oscar nomination for Michael Clayton (2007), his directorial debut. He was also nominated for best original screenplay. »

How Jennifer Aniston Is Connected to Every Golden Globe Nominee in 6 Degrees or Less

6 January 2015 7:24 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Move over Kevin Bacon! When it comes to working with everyone in Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston may be the actor to beat.

While Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon -- an idea that came from the actor himself when, in 1994, he told Premiere magazine that he’s worked with everybody -- has become the ultimate trivia game, it may be time to re-think who’s actually at the nexus.

Thanks in large part to Friends -- the former NBC sitcom now streaming on Netflix -- Aniston worked with a number of stars well before they were famous. And in the years since the series ended, Aniston has shared the screen with a few but key number of A-listers. But it wasn’t until she earned a 2015 Golden Globe nomination for her role in Cake that we realized she’s practically worked with everyone in Hollywood.
