“Hey, Glad You Won But…”: Top 10 Nominees Deprived of Oscar Gold in Favor of Another Contender

19 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The knock on the Academy Awards throughout the years always seem to be how certain actors, directors and films are snubbed in favor of other chosen nominations. Sometimes the justification for these overlooked selections in performances and motion pictures are warranted. Many will agree that a lot of injustices have been committed based on how some Oscar-worthy selections were slighted.

Has anyone ever considered the equal possibilities of omission when one Oscar nominee wins the  golden statuette over another nominee that one thought was more deserving for the victory? There have been numerous instances when observers who have witnessed an Oscar win thought that their competitor should have received it instead. It is only human nature to have an opinion as to feel who should have claimed Oscar gold as opposed to the fellow nominee that actually accomplished the goal.

Let us look at the top ten instances where it »

Steven Spielberg to develop new film from 'Lincoln' screenwriter

17 April 2014 6:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For me, there are two immediately interesting takeaways from the news that Steve Spielberg will be developing the religious drama "The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara." The first is that it would mark his third collaboration with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and screenwriter Tony Kushner after "Munich" and "Lincoln." The other is that the project would be a co-production between DreamWorks and The Weinstein Company. DreamWorks, quietly celebrating a 20th anniversary this year after being concocted by entertainment magnates Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen, saw some interesting Oscar battlefield time opposite Harvey Weinstein back in the Miramax days. Round one went to Weinstein, as "Shakespeare in Love" shocked "Saving Private Ryan" to win the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1998. But Spielberg and company won rounds two and three with "American Beauty" topping "The Cider House Rules" in 1999 and "Gladiator" blowing past "Chocolat" in 2000.

'Bones' Season 9: Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo cast

28 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Bones" Season 9 has cast Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo to guest-star as Arastoo's mother, Deena Vaziri.

Aghdashloo will appear in an upcoming episode when Cam (Tamara Taylor) and boyfriend Arastoo Vaziri (Pej Vahdat) have dinner with Deena during the woman's visit to town, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Things get awkward quickly, of course, when Deena begins to question the couple. Will the Vaziri parents approve of their son's older girlfriend (especially since she doesn't share the same religion)?

Best known for her Academy Award-nominated role in "The House of Sand and Fog," Aghdashloo has also appeared on "Grimm," "NCIS" and "The Mob Doctor."
