George Clooney to receive HFPA's Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2015 Golden Globes

15 September 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

George Clooney's latest film "The Monuments Men" may have turned out to be an awards season bust (I still quite liked what he tried to do with that picture), but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a place in the season. Courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he'll need to dust off the tux and head to the Beverly Hilton for the Golden Globes in January because he's this year's recipient of the organization's Cecil B. DeMille Award. Previous recipients of the prize, awarded for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" (but generally perceived as a lifetime achievement honor of sorts), include Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese. The first annual honoree was DeMille himself in 1952, followed by the likes of Walt Disney, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, James Stewart, John Wayne and on and on. Clooney has always been »

Watch: Shailene Woodley Gets Nsfw In 2 Clips From 'White Bird In A Blizzard' Plus New Pics

12 September 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Shailene Woodley can afford to take risks. The actress first earned attention in Alexander Payne's "The Descendants," kept the buzz going with a tender turn in "The Spectacular Now" and proved she could sell tickets at the box office with the double whammy of "Divergent" and "The Fault In Our Stars" this year. So yes, the actress has been afforded some flexibility in her career choices, and coming up next is Gregg Araki's "White Bird In A Blizzard." The drama co-stars Eva Green, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Christopher Meloni and more, and follows a seventeen year-old girl whose life starts spinning out of control when her mother disappears. It's a dream-like movie (read our review), heavy on style and atmosphere, but also comes with a sharp, distinct tone. And you can see them in these two clips, which find Woodley and Green going head-to-head. "White Bird In A Blizzard »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

2 September 2014 2:23 PM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

 

Initially known for playing goofy sidekicks, Matthew Lillard's has gradually been able to showcase his versatility. Take, for instance, his role in 2011's The Descendants, in which he played the love interest of George Clooney's character's fatally injured wife or his guest stint on The Good Wife, as a folk musician loosely based on indie musician Jonathan Coulton. But the Michigan native's most career-transforming portrayal has been Daniel Frye on “The Bridge.”

Sex And Lies In Eerie Trailer For White Bird In A Blizzard, Starrng Shailene Woodley And Eva Green

22 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From The Descendants to The Fault in Our Stars, Shailene Woodley has cemented herself as one of the buzziest young actresses working in Hollywood today, but she’ll soon be shrugging off her rabid teen fanbase to take on her darkest role yet, in Gregg Araki’s enigmatic White Bird in a Blizzard. Woodley stars as a seventeen-year-old girl whose sexual awakening arrives around the same time that her mysterious mother (Eva Green) disappears into thin air.

An eerie, enticing new trailer for the movie, which co-stars Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe and Shiloh Fernandez, has landed online, revealing more of the film’s aloof, almost dreamlike tone (but what were you expecting from the director of Mysterious Skin?).

White Bird in a Blizzard made quite a splash when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and thanks to Magnolia Pictures, general audiences will finally get a chance »
