Johnny Depp, Leo DiCaprio – Which acting contenders this year are most due for their first win?

26 August 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Of the many storylines that begin during awards season, few are usually as compelling as the ones centered around who’s most due for an Academy Award. I think that it’s usually pretty satisfying to see a former bridesmaid finally become a bride, as it were. As such, below I’ve made up a list of ten actors or actresses who’ve previously been nominated for Oscars but have yet to win one who are in contention this year. I’ve more or less ranked them by how due they are, and just to be fair, I’ve excluded anyone who has already won a prize elsewhere (sorry Matt Damon, for example), or any of the myriad contenders who are seeking their first ever nomination by the Academy. Take a look below and I hope you enjoy! Here now are the ten actors and actresses most due for their »

Experts' early Oscar predictions: 'Joy,' 'The Revenant,' Leo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett ...'

25 August 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

After three previous losses in the Oscars' Best Picture race ("Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle," "The Fighter"), director David O. Russell is now out front to win for "Joy," according to the collective predictions of 14 experts at Gold Derby. See each expert's individual rankings here. "Joy" has a narrow lead (7 to 1 odds) over "The Revenant" by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (15/2), who prevailed six months ago with victories for Best Picture and Director for "Birdman." However, Inarritu has a slight edge (9/2) over Russell (5/1) to repeat as Best Director and "The Revenant" star, still-Oscarless Leonardo DiCaprio, leads the Best Actor battle (10/3). DiCaprio has a slight edge over recent champ Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl" (4/1).  Strongly ahead to win Best Actress is two-time past Oscar winner Cate Blanchett ("Carol") with 13/5 odds over »

“Joy” is the latest Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell project in the Oscar hunt

25 August 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Between Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, it’s undeniable that Jennifer Lawrence and filmmaker David O. Russell have a tremendous thing going. Their working relationship is as strong as any other in the business. I’m of the opinion that they’ve put forward two Oscar worthy projects, one of which was able to get Lawrence an Academy Award for Best Actress (for Silver Linings Playbook). Both times, Russell found himself nominated for Best Director and in either Best Adapted Screenplay or Best Original Screenplay, while the other time Lawrence was up for Best Supporting Actress. That’s a winning formula if ever there was one. Later this year, they’ll attempt to go three for three with Joy, a biographical dramedy that will also be the third time they’ve worked together with Bradley Cooper (who also has been nominated twice, as well as co-starred with Lawrence in »

24 August 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Perhaps getting inspiration from Silver Linings Playbook on how to handle yourself after a divorce isn't the best idea. But then we wouldn't have Keegan-Michael Key running around in a trash bag and making guttural noises on Playing House. Yes, it's true: Mark and Bird Bones are no more and there are several questions to be answered: What's a man to do when his marriage fall apart? Can you have too many succulents? Is Jessica St. Clair's Steve Harvey impression the best? We can safely answer one of those questions: Yes, her impression is the best. Check out the sneak peek below for more.

22 August 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

God save the Queen Walter Blunt’s liver.

Because if the British news anchor at the forefront of Starz’s Blunt Talk continues the way he’s going in the series premiere, he’ll pickle himself by the end of the season.

In a moment, we’ll want to hear what you thought of the half-hour comedy. But first, a quick recap:

Patrick Stewart plays Walter, who is essentially the anti-Picard: a drunken mess of a man who appears before millions on a cable news show each evening but who barely can button his own shirt without the help of »

Patrick Stewart, Blunt Talk Ep Preview Starz's Newsy Comedy, Tng Cameos

21 August 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sir Patrick Stewart has made a career of playing sharp, smart men who issue orders, inspire masses and sometimes save the universe.

His latest character, Walter Blunt of Starz’s new comedy Blunt Talk, is… something entirely different.

A British war vet with a nightly show on an American cable news channel, Walter wants to exude the gravitas of a trusted anchor but frequently finds himself too drunk to stand, too high to focus and occasionally — as is the case in Saturday’s series premiere (9/8c) — pursued by the police while nuzzling a transsexual hooker’s chest.

Jennifer Lawrence Looks To The Stars In Stirring First Poster For David O. Russell’s Joy

17 August 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Jennifer Lawrence has helped lead Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games to megastardom, it is through films such as American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook that the actress has truly displayed her versatility. Leaving the relative safe haven of a marquee Ya franchise for a more low-key drama may seem risky in theory, but in working with David O. Russell, Lawrence may have very well found her good luck charm.

And so, the actor-director pairing are set to reunite once again for Joy, a loose biopic that will have Lawrence assume the role of Joy Mangano, the famed mother-of-three-turned-entrepreneur who struck gold after inventing the Miracle Mop, along with a handful of other nifty domestic appliances. However, it isn’t long before Lawrence’s protagonist is left spinning too many plates, leaving her struggling to cope with family life and the increasing pressure of running her own business.

With a multi-faceted role at her disposal, »
