Sneakerheadz sets out to ask one of the most challenging questions facing any shoe collector: To Rock or Stock?

How did sneakers become as prized as collectable art? From the shares of Cali to the congested streets of Tokyo, Sneakerheadz examines the cultural influence of sneaker collecting around the world and delves »

On Oscars Sunday, Emma Watson took to Twitter to thank nominee Steve Carell for wearing HeForShe cuff links in support of the #HeForShe gender equality campaign. The actor wore Monique Péan for HeForShe cuff links and shirt studs, which were codesigned by Emma and Monique Péan. To thank him, Emma tweeted a picture of a supersweet note that she wrote for him, which read: Dear Steve Carell, You were pure genius in Little Miss Sunshine (one of my all time favourite films), my brother became obsessed with you after Anchorman, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love, I hated that guy you played in The Way Way Back, and then you were mind-blowing in Foxcatcher. I think you're so awesome and now you are wearing #HeForShe cufflinks at the Oscars to support Gender Equality. Couldn't be more proud. Thank You. Love, Emma x Steve replied on Monday, »
A handwritten thank you note can go a long way.
Emma Watson proved this when she took the time to write Steve Carell a sweet message to thank him for his fashion choices at the Oscars. It turns out the 52-year-old Foxcatcher actor was wearing #HeForShe cufflinks, designed to support Watson's gender equality United Nations campaign.
The 24-year-old Harry Potter actress took to both her Twitter and Facebook to personally thank the Oscar-nominated comedian.
"You were pure genius in Little Miss Sunshine (one of my all time favorite films), my brother became obsessed with you after Anchorman, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love, I hated that guy you played in The Way Way Back, and then you were mind-blowing in Foxcatcher," she gushed. What about The Office, Emma?!
"I think you're so awesome and today you are »
At last night's Academy Awards ceremony, nominee Steve Carell wore a set of cufflinks on his wrist in support of a gender equality movement called He For She. You probably didn't notice it during the broadcast last night, but Emma Watson evidently wants the world to recognize his support for the campaign - and she's done so by writing him a rather lovely cocktail napkin thank you note. @SteveCarell #HeForShe @Moniquepean #OscarsCufflinks pic.twitter.com/W5TcnteQwK. Emma Watson (@EmWatson) February 22, 2015 Who knew that Emma Watson (and her brother) was such a big fan of Steve Carell? In the short note, she name drops six different films from the actor - Little Miss Sunshine, Anchorman, Crazy Stupid Love, The Way, Way Back and Foxcatcher - and to her credit, those really are what can be considered the best examples of Carell's work. Really the only titles missing are The 40 Year »
Usually stars save the Oscar night tears until they're inside the Dolby Theatre, but Steve Carell had a misty-eyed moment right on the carpet. The Best Actor nominee got caught off guard by a comment made by his wife, Nancy Carell. The couple was talking to ABC7 about Steve's dramatic turn in Foxcatcher, and Nancy couldn't hold back her praise. "I thought he was amazing," Nancy said of her husband's performance. After hearing his wife's review, Steve had some kind words of his own. "That means everything to me," he responded. "I'm going to start crying before I get inside. »

It wasn’t that long ago that the Film Independent Spirit Awards gave rise to the expression, “Win on Saturday, lose on Sunday.” That’s because the Spirit Awards take place the day before the Academy Awards, and because the roll call of Spirit winners is full of films that didn’t quite make the cut with the Academy, starting with “River’s Edge,” “Sex, Lies and Videotape,” “The Player” and “Pulp Fiction” and going on to include “Memento,” “Lost in Translation,” “Sideways,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Juno,” “The Wrestler,” “Precious,” “Black Swan” … But as the Spirit Awards prepare for their 30th annual. »

Not every movie can be a winner. And not every actor can be Meryl Streep.
Even Oscar nominees make bad movies and sometimes, in an unfortunate twist of fate and bad timing, that bomb, that dud, that total and complete flop, comes out at the same time as some of the best work of their life. Here are 11 times that happened in the past 10 years:
1. Eddie Redmayne (2015)
Losing Role: Jupiter Ascending. This totally effing bonkers Wachowski sci-fi flick came out just before Oscar voting started. And once you see Redmayne as Bowie-esque space prince Balem Abrasax, it cannot be unseen.
The Weinstein Company
2. Jennifer Lawrence (2013)
Winning Role: Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence took home Best Actress for her turn as a trouble townie named Tiffany in this dark spin on a rom-com »
Photo: AMPAS Polls Are Closed! See all the results right here! Well, it's time to lay it all out on the table and make our final predictions for the 2015 Oscars and I have to admit, this was a tough one to finalize as I feel I will be sweating a couple of these all night long come Sunday evening. The big question is whether or not it will be Birdman or Boyhood taking Best Picture and while last year it seemed we had a competition when it came to 12 Years a Slave and Gravity for the big prize, it didn't feel nearly as up in the air as it does this year. We also have the Best Actor category to think about when it comes down to the veteran in Michael Keaton (Birdman) and the newcomer in Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) and what to do about that Best »

“Little Miss Sunshine” is shining even brighter in 2015, thanks to a new ‘do! Abigail Breslin said goodbye to her long wavy blonde hair this week, as she showed up to Zac Posen’s New York Fashion Week show rocking a much shorter haircut. The former child star celebrates her 19th birthday in April – and we absolutely love this more mature look on her. It’s cute but still rebellious and her bold red lipstick definitely shows some sass. The actress recently opened up about her personal style and more adult fashion sense. "I don’t make these conscious decisions to do it to, like, prove to the world that I’m grown up. I think people see my work and see what I do and see that I’m grown up … I do want to try different things, but it’s all for fun,” she told E!. What do you think of Abigail's new cut? »

With Oscar voting ending tonight, I was looking over my Oscar predictions in preparation for when I post my final predictions and open up the polls for the readers to predict who they think will win at this Sunday's 2015 Oscars and, in all honesty, I didn't want to change a thing. Below the line there are a few that could go one way or another and above the line there are three categories that I wouldn't be surprised to see I get wrong, and they are three biggies: Best Picture Are you going with Birdman or Boyhoodc You can argue for both using statistics beginning with Birdman winning the PGA, DGA and SAG awards. Just taking SAG and PGA into consideration, only Apollo 13 and Little Miss Sunshine won both the SAG and PGA awards and didn't win Best Picture. Of course, on Boyhood's side is the fact it's »

Pop goes the… victim?
Though its only 12 seconds long and features zero cast members — Emma Roberts (American Horror Story), Lea Michele (Glee), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Ariana Grande (Sam & Cat), Nick Jonas (Kingdom), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) and Keke Palmer (Masters of Sex) are all slated to appear — the quick teaser definitely conveys the tone of Murphy’s next project: bloody and fun. »

There is a strange, altogether idiotic subset of people who actually believe Eddie Murphy lost the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Dreamgirls" because the raunchy, critically reviled "Norbit" hit theaters right in the thick of Academy voting. Nevermind that eventual Oscar winner Alan Arkin won the BAFTA prize for his "Little Miss Sunshine" performance, indicating industry support at the right time (surprisingly few of us picked him to win the Academy Award), or that "Dreamgirls" was obviously not held in the expected esteem by AMPAS, witnessed by a lack of major category presence in fields like Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Film Editing. They couldn't understand Murphy's apparent fall from grace, and so they falsely contextualized it and a nonsensical myth was born. This year, "The Theory of Everything" star Eddie Redmayne is bearing the brunt of this stupidity. It has even spilled onto the pages of The Washington Post, »

Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to attend the Sundance Film Festival? For over three decades the Sundance Film Festival has premiered some of the greatest independent films ever made, all from a tiny mountain town in Park City, Utah. Films like Clerks, Reservoir Dogs, The Blair Witch Project, Saw, Little Miss Sunshine, Napoleon Dynamite, 500 Days of Summer and Sex, Lies and Videotape were all born at Sundance, and this year has welcomed another crop of...

The Sundance Film Festival is in full swing over in Utah, and a whole host of films have had their premieres in the variety of showcases across the festival. As ever, many of the films have had distributors clamouring over each other to purchase the distribution rights and a lucky few have been successfully picked up for cinema or VOD release.
Starring Jack Black (School of Rock) and James Marsden (The Best of Me), The D Train is close to being acquired by IFC Films. Variety reports that the comedy, directed by Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel, sees Black star as an insecure guy heading preparations for his 20th high school reunion, and takes to befriending the most popular guy in his class (Marsden) in order to boost the profile of both the reunion and his own life.
The deal for the film, set to be over in the seven-figure range, »

We’re back with another horror/sci-fi news round-up. This time around, we focus on John Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record release, the hiring of a new writer for one of the stand-alone Star Wars films, and an unpredictable new cast addition for Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens TV series.
It followed Laurie Strode as she was hunted by Michael Myers, rode with Christine as the flaming 1958 Plymouth Fury mercilessly pursued Buddy Repperton down a dark stretch of asphalt, and accompanied Jack Burton and his pals on their rescue mission in Lo Pan’s lair. John Carpenter’s music could be listed as a cast member in his films, as they are like another character, superbly complimenting the dialogue and actions of the main players.
The nine tracks on Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record, however, don’t come from iconic films, but they will likely have listeners watching »

The all-star cast for Fox’s Scream Queens continues to grow, and it’s not done adding big names. Singer-songwriter and actor Nick Jonas has signed on for the first season of the comedy-horror anthology series in a recurring role. No specific details about Jonas’s Scream Queens role have been revealed yet. He joins an already stacked cast that includes Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Emma Roberts (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike), Lea Michele (Glee), Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland), and Keke Palmer (Masters of Sex), who will all be taking on starring roles in the show’s first season. Meanwhile, Grammy-nominated pop star and actress Ariana Grande will, like Jonas, appear on the series in a recurring role. Jonas’s past TV credits include his starring role in DirecTV’s Mma drama Kingdom and guest appearances on Hawaii Five-0 »

We've come to an interesting crossroads in the race. With all eyes on "Boyhood" coming into the weekend, and a few others on "American Sniper" and "The Imitation Game," it was "Birdman" that walked away the PGA champ Saturday. The SAG Awards left some doubt late in the evening Sunday as to whether the film's odds-on favorite status for the ensemble prize was jeopardized by Eddie Redmayne's lead actor win over Michael Keaton, but when the dust settled, "Birdman" was on top once again. So, some notes on the history. Films that have won both of those awards and gone on to claim the Best Picture Oscar: "Argo," "The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire," "No Country for Old Men," "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" and "Chicago." Films that have won both and gone on to lose the Best Picture Oscar: "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Apollo »
