In Defense Of ‘Jennifer’s Body’

27 February 2015 8:14 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

It’s been a while since I’ve defended a movie I’m passionate about so I thought it was high time I did it again. This time it’s the much-maligned Jennifer’s Body, starring Amanda Seyfried and Megan Fox. Released in 2009, Jennifer’s Body was stripper-turned-screenwriter Diablo Cody’s much-anticipated follow-up to Juno, the movie that won her a Best Original Screenplay Oscar. On […] »

J.K. Simmons on His Oscar-Winning 'Whiplash' Performance

24 February 2015 8:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Movies On Demand. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today's selection is "Whiplash." This interview originall ran in October, 2014.] You know J.K. Simmons' stern, malleable face. If you don't, you should. Over the last 20 years, the character actor's been appearing in films such as Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy and "Juno," as well as TV shows including "Oz" and "Law & Order." Yet despite this flurry of activity, stardom has evaded the actor. That could change this fall as his latest release, Damien Chazelle's Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner "Whiplash," expands following a limited release last Friday. Since its premiere in Park City and its subsequent screening at Cannes, Simmons' performance has been courting Oscar buzz for Best Supporting Actor -- and for good reason. As Fletcher, a psychotic music instructor »

Oscars: J.K. Simmons wins Best Supporting Actor for 'Whiplash'

22 February 2015 5:42 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As all 29 of our Oscar experts predicted, J.K. Simmons won Best Supporting Actor on Sunday night. He played the aggressively competitive music teacher Terrence Fletcher in "Whiplash" and had swept through awards season with victories at the Golden Globes, SAG, Critics' Choice, and BAFTA. -Break- Simmons was the only first-time nominee in this supporting category and was the overwhelming 1/10 favorite. His lengthy career, mostly as a character actor, has included "Burn After Reading," "The Cider House Rules," "Juno," "Spider-Man," "Thank You For Smoking," and "Up in the Air." Simmons was also predicted by all seven of our Editors, all of our Top 24 Users, and 92% of our overall Users. Edward Norton, who reaped his third nomination for "Birdman," and "Boyhood" featured player Ethan Hawke, who has contended once before in this category as well as twice ...' »

Can you ace HitFix's brutal 21-question Oscars quiz?

19 February 2015 4:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Oscars are less than 96 hours away, so you only have a limited amount of time to brag about your insane knowledge of Academy Awards history. Ready for a brutal 21-question foray into Oscar's grisly past? Let's roll. (We give you the questions on the first page. Jot down your responses, then check the answers, along with the accompanying questions, on the next page. The videos embedded here aren't related to the questions. They're just fun!) 1. What ‘90s Best Actor winner gave the shortest onscreen performance ever nominated (and therefore awarded) in that category? This is measured by total minutes and seconds spent onscreen. 2. The first (and so far only) black female nominee in the Best Original Screenplay category was a co-writer of what biopic released in the 1970s? 3. From 1937 to 1945, the Academy guaranteed nominations in one particular category to any studio that submitted a qualifiable entry. What was the category? »

12 Awesome Ladies Who Should Replace Jon Stewart as Host of 'The Daily Show'

11 February 2015 1:13 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jon Stewart is officially exiting The Daily Show after 17 years -- leaving an opening people are already suggesting the likes of Craig Ferguson, Jason Jones, and even Brian Williams fill. Ugh, didn’t we just do this? Colbert took over The Late Show for Letterman, Corden took The Late Late Show from Ferguson. White dudes replacing white dudes.

This is 20-effing-15, why do we still not have a woman in late night?

Watch: 'The Daily Show' gets Anne Hathaway laughing uncontrollably

We are ready and waiting for a female host -- there are Change.org petitions demanding it! (Do those ever do anything?) Anyway, here are 12 women who would be great to fill Stewart’s seat. (Note: We excluded women like Amy Schumer, who already has a show on Comedy Central, and Chelsea Handler, who has a deal with Netflix, who would be great for the show, but it’s not going to happen.)

5 TV Shows That Are Reshaping Their Networks' Image

10 February 2015 12:42 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last week, big news came for two outlets getting into the game of original programming: "Selma" director Ava DuVernay committed to writing and directing a dramatic series for Oprah Winfrey's channel Own, and the online platform Hulu cast "Trophy Wife" alum Michaela Watkins as the lead in "Casual," the upcoming half-hour comedy from multi-Oscar nominee Jason Reitman ("Juno," "Up in the Air").  For keen observers of the television landscape over the last five years, the flocking of major talent to unproven distributors is nothing new. David Fincher brought "House of Cards" to Netflix, which has since emerged as a top-tier Emmy player. The Sundance Channel suddenly materialized as a legitimate rival to HBO in the miniseries game, having won two Best Actress Golden Globes in a row. Amazon, not too long ago a website used mainly for ordering books, is now home to the best-reviewed new series of »

Actors in This Season’s Oscar Race Often Took Years to Hit With Voters

5 February 2015 2:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood has always been a place of dreams, built on the idea that anyone can become a star. That Cinderella story (or spotted-in-Schwab’s-drugstore story) is all part of the glamor that is Hollywood. And when looking at this year’s acting races, it seems the dream is more alive than ever.

Out of this year’s 20 acting nominees, nine are first-timers to the Academy Awards. The lead actor race features only one previous nominee, Bradley Cooper, among a group of freshmen. New faces like Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch managed to work their way into what may be the most competitive actor race ever.

Of course, none are overnight successes. Supporting actor frontrunner J.K. Simmons may not be a household name, but odds are audiences know his face from more than 20 years in TV (“Oz,” “Law & Order”) and films (“Juno,” “Spider-Man”). And though Rosamund Pike became the new It Girl thanks to “Gone Girl, »

First Image From Ricki And The Flash Showcases Meryl Streep’s Rock Edge

4 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there anything Meryl Streep can’t do? In the first image from her next effort, Ricki And The Flash, the Oscar-winner debuts a previously-unseen side to her talents. Brandishing a pristine Fender and a flowing mane of hair, the still showcases a devil-may-care attitude to Streep that’s seldom seen on screen. It’s hardly a revealing image, but it serves as a tasty warm-up before the trailer lands.

In the lead role of Ricki, Streep plays an ageing rocker who abandoned her family years before to pursue her rock n’roll lifestyle. When her dreams of superstardom come crashing down after a long stint playing in dive bars and such, she calls up her ex-husband (Kevin Kline) with the hopes of reconnecting with her children. Leaving California behind, she ups sticks and returns to New York with her tail between her legs to reinstate herself as the family matriarch. »

First image of Meryl Streep rocking out in 'Ricki and the Flash' arrives

4 February 2015 11:18 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One can only wonder if an Oscar nomination for Meryl Streep is more or less automatic these days. She has the all-time record with 19 tips of the Academy's hat to date, and she has an intriguing role coming up in Jonathan Demme's "Ricki and the Flash" that will surely bring her at least into the conversation yet again. Then again, maybe it's not so automatic. Streep crushed it in Demme's own remake of "The Manchurian Candidate" a little over a decade ago, but where Angela Lansbury was able to make it to the dance for originating the role, Streep didn't make the cut. I'm sure fellow supporting actress players like Laura Linney ("Kinsey") and Sophie Okondeo ("Hotel Rwanda") were happy to have the wiggle room. Anyway, the first image from "Ricki and the Flash" has been revealed (see above), courtesy of People. In the movie, which was written by Diablo Cody ("Juno, »

First Picture of Meryl Streep as a Rocker in 'Ricki and the Flash'

4 February 2015 10:35 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

TriStar Pictures has chosen People magazine as the outlet to offer the first look at Meryl Streep as an aging rocker in Jonathan Demme's upcoming movie Ricki and the Flash. Pictured above, Streep plays a woman who abandoned her family when she was younger to find fame and fortune as a rock star in California. Decades later, she returns home to be a mother again after her daughter (played by Streep's real life daughter Mamie Gummer) goes through a divorce. Kevin Kline, rocker Rick Springfield, Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Audra McDonald ("Private Practice") round out the cast. Written by Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult), the pic is set to hit theaters on August 6 after previously being slotted for a late June release, obviously for awards reasons. »
