Emma Watson Wrote Steve Carell the Sweetest Note Thanking Him For His Support

1 March 2015 8:55 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

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, »

Watch the first 10 minutes of Foxcatcher

27 February 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While it earned five Oscar nominations at last weekend’s ceremony, Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher walked away empty-handed after losing to the likes of Birdman, Whiplash and The Theory of Everything.  But despite its gracious defeat, Foxcatcher is still an excellent film that while perhaps not reaching the heights of the masterpiece it was proclaimed to be back at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, the film is still worth your time, particularly for the revelatory performances from Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum.

You can read our review of the film here, but IndieWire has gone one better and released the first 10 minutes of the film online for your viewing pleasure. In the segment, we see Tatum’s Mark Schultz, former wrestling champion who now struggles to get out bed in the mornings. He perseveres, not least because of his brother Dave (Ruffalo), who still believes in Mark »

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

Win Oscar Nominee 'Foxcatcher' on Blu-ray

26 February 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bennet Miller's harrowing sports drama "Foxcatcher" was one of last year's most acclaimed films, earning five Oscar nominations and a Best Director win at the Cannes Film Festival for Miller. Indiewire is hosting a contest to win "Foxcatcher" on Blu-ray plus a Team Foxcatcher sweatshirt. Based on true events, "Foxcatcher" tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire (Steve Carell) and two champion wrestlers (Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo). Directed by Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller, it is a rich and moving story of brotherly love, misguided loyalty and the corruption and emotional bankruptcy that can accompany great power and wealth. Check out this exclusive clip from behind the scenes below, where Bennet Miller convinces Channing Tatum to do some of the most surprising work of his career. Enter the contest here. Good luck! »

9 Insane Injuries Actors Suffered To Win An Oscar

26 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Focus Features/Universal Pictures

If this year and every other year before it is any proof, the Oscars can be difficult to predict. Take the Best Actor category in 2015: back in spring 2014, everyone thought Timothy Spall – coming off the back of a Cannes win for Mr. Turner – would be the eventual winner. He wasn’t even nominated.

Then, for a time, Foxcatcher’s Steve Carell – after Cannes saw him make a significant transformation back in May – then Birdman’s Michael Keaton were the obvious winners of award. On the night, however, they were both pipped to the post by plucky English upstart Eddie Redmayne.

Aside from Redmayne giving a superb performance in The Theory Of Everything, there’s another good reason why the actor came to take the prize: he suffered for his art. You see, if there’s one thing you can predict at the Oscars, it’s »

Watch: The First 10-Minutes Of Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher'

26 February 2015 8:31 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Five Oscar nominations and no wins seems like an injustice to Bennett Miller's outstanding "Foxcatcher," but time will be the judge of the film, which will surely only grow in stature (be sure to read this great essay by Jessica Kiang about the movie). But if haven't seen the picture, then here's a pretty healthy taste. Indiewire has unveiled the first ten minutes of "Foxcatcher," and it's a great reminder of just how controlled Miller's craft is with every frame of his movie. In the opening minutes we meet Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum), who is a champion in sport, but defeated by life. It's clear he's living to hand-to-mouth, and even a shot as seemingly innocuous as Mark eating in his car carries real weight in regards to his character. And when his brighter, happier brother Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) enters the picture, and we watch the dynamic between them unfold through wrestling warm-ups, »

Watch the First Ten Minutes of 'Foxcatcher'

26 February 2015 8:28 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I feel like one of the movies that did not get its due this past awards season was Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher. Yes, it was nominated for numerous awards, including Best Director and Best Actor, but I think generally they were seen as after thoughts or the number five slots. I thought the movie was very intense, and its slow pace only served to enhance that tension. Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and especially Mark Ruffalo are all giving terrific performances. It is a really good film, and if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out. amz asin="B00QK4ANEI" size="small"For those still on the fence, the first ten minutes of the film are available for you to watchm which you can do so below.

Contest: Win 'Foxcatcher' Blu-Ray & Sweatshirt Prize Pack Plus Check Out An Exclusive Featurette With Bennett Miller

25 February 2015 1:29 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While it may not have walked away with any hardware at the Oscars last weekend, the five nominations, coupled with Independent Spirit Awards honors, a Best Director prize at Cannes, and no shortage of critical acclaim, means "Foxcatcher" will hardly be forgotten. In fact, it's the kind of perceptive, sharply crafted drama that will only grow in estimation and stature, and today we have  prize pack that will bring the celebrated movie right to your door. To recap, the Bennett Miller-directed drama stars Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum in the tragic true story of the wealthy John Du Pont, whose dream of backing a dynasty of Olympic winning wrestlers anchored by the Schultz brothers goes down some dark, twisted paths. As Miller says in the featurette below, it's a story that unfolds with many layers. Today we're giving a prize pack featuring a Blu-ray copy of the film, »

Alejandro G. Inarritu on Oscar Glory and Why He Wouldn’t Have Minded Losing

25 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alejandro G. Inarritu was as unabashedly frank backstage at Sunday night’s Academy Awards as his movie “Birdman,” about a washed-up superhero-movie actor attempting to reinvent himself on Broadway, was unapologetically bold.

When asked about the apprehension in conceiving of such a daring cinematic undertaking, the writer-director declared, “Fear is the condom of life; it doesn’t allow you to enjoy things.” As the crowd exploded in laughter, he added, “I did it without, and this was the result; it was real. It was making love.”

It was that raw, unconventional nature of “Birdman”— the magical realism of star Michael Keaton moving objects with his mind, floating three feet off his dressing-room floor in a lotus position and flying through New York City — that helped Inarritu’s movie nab four Oscars for best director, picture, original screenplay and cinematography.

Emma Watson Declares Her Love for Steve Carell in Handwritten Note

24 February 2015 7:28 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

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.

See The Touching Way Emma Watson Thanked Steve Carell

23 February 2015 9:37 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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 »

Stephen Hawking congratulates Eddie Redmayne after his Oscar win

23 February 2015 12:05 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After his triumph at last night’s Academy Awards, Eddie Redmayne continued to be congratulated on his win from all corners of the globe, including one from Stephen Hawking himself after winning the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in The Theory of Everything.

Post by Stephen Hawking.

 

Redmayne was congratulated by Professor Hawking on his Facebook page to his two million strong fanbase after winning for portraying the physicist and his battles with motor neurone disease, beating out Michael Keaton (Birdman), Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) and Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) to the award.

The actor dedicated his award to those living with motor neuron disease after spending time with the Hawking family while preparing for his role.

“I will certainly go to Cambridge at some point to see Stephen, Jane, Jonathan and the Hawking children….. They have been so kind to [the cast and crew] the whole way through »
