It's the most wonderful time of the year, and Peter Travers has no coal – just three holiday season must-sees on this week's At The Movies. First up is Kathryn Bigelow's spectacular Zero Dark Thirty, which stars Jessica Chastain as a CIA desk warrior leading the manhunt for Osama Bin Laden. Next is Tom Hopper's film adaptation of the musical Les Miserables – starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russel Crowe – which nixes clunky vocal overdubbing for live singing. Travers promises, "even if you hate musicals, this is the musical »
Los Angeles — Even the hundreds of photographers, TV cameras and webcams around the Hollywood & Highland Center can't capture every starry moment of Sunday's 84th annual Academy Awards.
Celebrities reunite on the red carpet, mingle during commercial breaks and experience impromptu star-crossings in the wings – and we've got our eyes and ears trained on those moments.
From arrivals to after-parties, here's a running account of what you didn't see on TV:
3:22 – "Is the house open?", a casually dressed Billy Crystal asks a backstage security crew a little more than two hours before the Oscar show is to begin. Wearing jeans, a sweater, sneakers and his Oscar credential, Crystal gazes out at an empty theater as he hits his marks and silently rehearses his monologue. A few minutes later, he's gone.
3:26 p.m. – Outside the theater, things are beginning to heat up, thanks in no small part to the arrival »
With three critically-panned movies released by his Happy Madison Productions, 2011 was A Berry Bad Year for Adam Sandler, who now totally dominates the list of contenders for The 32nd Annual Razzie Awards. Sandler has more than doubled Eddie Murphy's old record for the most nominations accrued by an individual in a single year. As an actor, writer and/or producer on Jack and Jill, Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star and Just Go with It, the former SNL star has amassed a whopping 11 Razzie nods, dis-honoring last year's Worst Achievements in Film.
Leading the pack for Worst Picture is Sandler's cross-dressing comedy Jack and Jill, which received 12 nods in all (becoming only the 4th film in the Tacky Trophy's history ever to get more dings than the awards have categories). Besides having the inside track to "win" the top award, Jack and Jill is also contending for Sandler »
