Thanks for Noticing, Golden Guy: Top Ten Oscar-Nominated Actor Acknowledgements

25 January 2015 1:16 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 87th Academy Award nominations for 2015 were recently released on January 15, 2015 representing the excellence in film for the previous year. Naturally there was the standard controversy regarding those films and performances that got unfairly overlooked. Unfortunately, the perceived snubs do happen from year to year so this goes along with the territory. Nevertheless, the lucky selections that do manage to grab Oscar’s attention are understandably grateful and psyched to see if the golden statuette will in fact go home with them on the film industry’s biggest and most elegant evening.

With the obvious crankiness of Oscar omissions aside and the injustices that go with these “reel” deals has anyone ever considered the Academy Award nominees that are surprisingly recognized that could have gone unnoticed for whatever reasoning? After all there are films and exceptional performances that get lost in the shuffle but manage to get the accolades it »

Blu-ray Review: Stale Screen Culture Drama ‘Men, Women & Children’

22 January 2015 12:54 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In “Men, Women & Children,” director Jason Reitman not-so-audaciously reflects onto viewers their world of silent screens and awkward impersonal interactions. As many stories (“Don Jon,” “Disconnect”) have taken on the torch of showing how we are, gasp! — connected to the world yet disconnected from those close to us — Reitman’s tale is just another one for the batch.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

When the aliens of another planet excavate our digital ruins to understand what we thought of what we wrought, “Men, Women & Children” shall stand out as the film that angled the screen society through the lens of absurdities and perversions, more by the parents than their title kin. Jennifer Garner and Judy Greer portray parents who exhibit control over their kin, enabled by the connectivity and mass audiences awaiting a simple post on the internet. In an example of screen culture absurdity, a stoic Garner is a vehement watchdog over »

And, to coincide with the special night, Sony Pictures Classics has announced the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film.

While the special features have yet to be announced, many will be hoping that the release is jam-packed with extras including commentaries and behind-the-scenes featurettes. That said, the artwork has been released, which you can view below. We will update you as and when we get any new information on the release.

A promising young drummer (Miles Teller, The Spectacular Now) enrolls at a cutthroat music conservatory where his dreams of greatness are mentored by an instructor (J.K. Simmons, Juno) who will stop at nothing to realize a student’s potential.

The Wedding Ringer – The Review

15 January 2015 9:17 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Hey film fans, are you ready for the first odd coupling “bro-mance” of 2015? Well, you’d better be, cause it’s here at the multiplex now. It owes little to that Neil Simon classic creation other than an unlikely pairing. Perhaps it’s closer the 48 Hrs films or the Rush Hour series, although race and ethnicity doesn’t factor in quite as mush as those earlier action comedies. And what instigates this team-up? Why it’s that epic fodder for catastrophe, a big wedding ceremony, where slapstick, conflict, and deception collide. Throw in a shady transaction and you’ve got a new big matrimonial farce in The Wedding Ring (get it, ring, and singer, eh?eh?). No need to mail in a RSVP, just get your tickets at the box office.

As the film opens, we meet frazzled fiance Doug Harris (Josh Gad) as he calls up every fella’ he »

Oscars Nominees 2015: See Who Got Their Start on TV

15 January 2015 10:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Thursday's Oscar nominations consisted almost exclusively of familiar faces from the film world. Before several of these actors broke out on the big screen, though, they found their way into the spotlight on television. Among these class acts is a comic actress–turned–serious dramatist who's actually a reality veteran, a sharp-tongued supporting actor whose first recurring gig was on an Nsfw HBO series and a threepeat nominee who learned his craft from asking other Oscar go-to guys for their advice - over and over again.

Best Supporting Actor Predictions 2015

14 January 2015 11:37 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As Oscar nominations loom, where is the Supporting Actor race? Take a look at a solid--and frozen--five contenders. These Are the final five.  1. Jk Simmons ("Whiplash") Why is Simmons so obvious? Well, ever since Damien Chazelle's jazz drumming drama opened the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and was instantly scooped up by Sony Pictures Classics, the movie has been slowly building a strong base of support, even though it never quite took off at the box office. Word-of-mouth has been great: once people sit down and watch the edge-of-your-seat movie, they love it, partly because it goes out with such a bang. It leaves the audience on an emotional high. Simmons, 59, is a classic case of a familiar and respected workhorse film and TV regular ("The Closer," "Law and Order") who finally has landed the perfect role. In this case, the genial everyman in a series of comedies (Jason Reitman's »

DGA Nominations: Eastwood is Fashionably Late Yet Again

13 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Directors Guild of America have spoken and raised the Eastwood flag yet again. The 84 year old director cruised to a nomination for his conservative military drama American Sniper. It's his fourth nomination with the DGA. He has won twice before at the DGA and also received a Lifetime Achievement Award. The Academy has nominated him even more often for directing as American Sniper will be his fifth Best Director nomination should it come to pass. Eastwood has a habit of crashing the party late. He did it in 2004 with Million Dollar Baby when everyone was preparing for an Aviator sweep. He did it in 2006 with the tiny grossing nearly black and white foreign language film Letters from Iwo Jima and he looks like he'll do it again on Thursday for American Sniper.

DGA Nominees:

Wes Anderson, Grand Budapest Hotel

Clint Eastwood American Sniper

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Birdman

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

10 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

J.K. Simmons, This Is Your Year

9 January 2015 3:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It takes more than a village to make an award-worthy performance -- it takes a million tiny moments that together create a film or TV show more magical than its parts. This week, ETonline talks with Golden Globe nominees about all the big and small ways stars have to align for a great idea to make it to the screen.

As a longtime character actor who has shined among ensemble casts (think: Juno’s deadpan dad or Bob, a laid off white collar worker, in two of director Jason Reitman’s Oscar-bait films), Whiplash co-star J.K. Simmons appreciated receiving the Spotlight Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. And on Sunday, he just might add a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor to his collection of accolades.

ETonline: How did the stars align on this particular project?

J.K. Simmons: Simple answer: [Whiplash’s producer] Jason Reitman sent me the script and I fell in love with it.

Interview: Jason Reitman

6 January 2015 3:04 PM, PST | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

"I've basically gone from hamburger phone to cellphone in eight years."

Director Jason Reitman is back with Men, Women and Children – a film featuring every type of modern consumer technology that you can think of. But as with his other films - Thank You For Smoking, Juno and Up In The Air amongst them – what the film appears to be about isn’t actually the point. Men Women and Children, featuring a cast including Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort and  Jennifer Garner, is about people, relationships, secrets and lies.

He sat down with Pure Movies editor Dan Higgins to talk about technology, Gone GirlBlack Mirror and Ghostbusters!

Is technology ruining everyone’s lives or changing the world for the better?

Jason Reitman: C’mon, who can possibly sit there and say they know for certain that technology is doing good or bad? Fifty years from now we’ll look »

Ellen Page Says 'F*** That' After Queen Elizabeth II Commends Anti-lgbtq Politician

6 January 2015 9:38 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Halifax-born actress Ellen Page had some choice words for Queen Elizabeth II after Her Majesty honoured a Northern Ireland politician who has made offensive comments about Lgbt people.

The star of "Juno" and "Inception" tweeted "F*** That" on Monday in response to a Vice story about the Queen's decision to hand an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) to Maurice Mills, an alderman for the town of Ballymena, for "services to local government."
