Grammys Right Oscar Wrongs, Nominate 'Dark Knight' and 'There Will Be Blood'

4 December 2008 6:02 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Both scores were nominated for a Grammy last night, in the category "Best Score Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media."

26 August 2008 2:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Veronica Mars actress Kristen Bell is set to play a vocal role in the upcoming animated feature film presentation by Warner Bros., Astro Boy.  The film is directed by David Bowers and is based on the classic Osamu Tezuka comic series, which began as a Japanese manga and later was drawn into a cartoon in the early ‘60s.  It was then recreated in the ‘80s and most recently, in 2003.

The main character is a robot boy who was created by a professor in memory of his dead son.  The story is set in the futuristic Metro City, where humans and robots peacefully co-exist.

While no announcement has been made about which character Bell will be playing, Zap2It reports that she will be joining other cast members such as Nicolas Cage, Scarlett Johansson, Donald Sutherland, Billy Nighly, Nathan Lane and Eugene Levy in the film, which is set to be released next year. »

O'Loughlin has signed a talent-holding deal with the CBS that also includes CBS Paramount TV and ABC Studios. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the one-year deal is geared toward finding a new series project for the actor.

O'Loughlin, whose credits also include the films "August Rush" and "The Invisible," also is able to pitch movie projects to CBS Films under the deal.

The Saturn Awards: And The Winner Is…

27 June 2008 6:40 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Oh, I can’t stand the suspense! This week, the 34th annual Saturn Awards handed out their usual fare of achievement recognizing statues.

In the event you aren’t aware of what they are, the Saturn Awards are the honors handed out by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. The Academy has been delivering their awards for over thirty years and they look to recognize cinematic achievement.

It’s a recognized validation of the genre we so fervently appreciate.

Some of the more noteworthy recipients of the awards:

Walt Disney Studios picked up three awards, ABC’s Lost snagged four awards, and 300 picked up 2 awards.

 

More specifically, some of the categories that caught my eye were:

Best Science Fiction Film: Cloverfield

Best Action/Adventure/Thriller Film: 300

Best Actor: Will Smith (I Am Legend)

Best Special Effects: Scott Farrar, Scott Benza, Russell Earl, John Frazier (Transformers)

Best Network Television »
