The whole year, I have been looking for The Oscar season frontrunner for Best Actress. I was hoping Shailene Woodley from "The Fault in Our Stars" would squeak in, but now, the lovely, talented, and ultra-sweet Julianne Moore is the one to beat!
Her double whammy performances for "Map to the Stars" and "Still Alice" solidify that notion. And just this morning, the Palm Springs International Film Festival just called her The best actress of the year! Moore will be receiving the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, at the festival's Awards Gala.
I can't wait! I will be on the red carpet to chat it up with the fantastic Miss Moore! She will be joining the equally talented Eddie Redmayne from "The Theory of Everything" at the gala where the actor is set to receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor.
Here's the full press release from the Psiff:

Julianne Moore might be the hottest actress in the Oscar race this year, and most voters haven’t even seen her film yet. This four-time Oscar nominee and Emmy winner for Game Change is considered overdue for a win. Still Alice, in which she plays a victim of early-onset Alzheimer’s, offers her a great opportunity to finally take home that statuette, and today the Palm Springs International Film Festival announced that she will receive the Actress prize at this year’s gala on January 3. Eddie Redmayne was previously announced for the fest’s Actor prize, and both are considered front-runners in the Oscar race, so Psiff is just jumping on the bandwagon.
Every precursor award a contender can get just makes them seem more inevitable for the final win. Moore certainly is deserving, and it is looking like her year. In May, she won the Best Actress prize at »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a go a bit old school and take a look at an A-lister who’s been around for a while now…Pierce Brosnan. A very charming actor, he went from being well known and well liked on television to a mega star when he became one of the notable few ever to essay the role of secret agent 007 in the James Bond franchise. Brosnan has also been one of the more successful post Bond actors, doing his best not to be defined by the iconic role. As such, he’s retained that A-list status and is well deserving of today’s spotlight piece. Here we go! Brosnan had his beginnings on television, in made for TV movies and bit parts, before he became a known commodity with his series Remington Steele. That show made him a small screen star (and »

Fans of country music based drama Nashville can expect to see a few new faces this season. Alex Vega from Sky Kids and Brette Taylor from Laws of Attraction will be on the show this season. Their reoccuring roles for the show. We are not sure where they will come into place or how many episodes they will be on. Not much info has been released yet, thus we will have to wait and see when they do.
This is exciting news as Alexa has been very passionate about music. Sure, she will likely be singing country, but it will give her the best of both worlds. Nashville has a pretty strong following and has done well for a show of its kind. However, they have also had their issues and filming in places with high taxes has not been their friend. Luckily they worked it out, so Brette and »

A documentary about just what went wrong with the making of “Reasonable Doubt” would doubtless prove more involving than the movie itself, a turgid yuppie paranoia thriller of the sort that proliferated wildly 20-odd years ago in the wake of “Presumed Innocent” and “Pacific Heights.” Limping into theaters and simultaneous VOD play with understandably little fanfare — plus a pseudonym where the name of director Peter Howitt (“Sliding Doors,” “Laws of Attraction”) once stood — this utterly unmemorable, uninspired and unnecessary genre exercise should fade from view so fast they might just as soon have called it “Without a Trace.”
“Flightplan” scribe Peter A. Dowling (who should have thought seriously about the pseudonym route himself) is credited with concocting this tale of a rising young public prosecutor with his sights on the Chicago district attorney’s office who makes one of those fatal errors in judgment that, by the movie’s third act, »
