Wes Anderson enjoys first UK No 1 as takings look set to eclipse his Fantastic Mr Fox
When it debuted in third place with £1.53m from 284 cinemas, Grand Budapest Hotel always looked on course to become Wes Anderson's biggest live-action film at UK cinemas, displacing The Royal Tenenbaums (£3.33m lifetime). A week later, with an expansion to 372 venues, the film found itself in second place in the UK box office chart. And now, in its third week of release, the Middle European caper grabs the top spot, dethroning video-game adaptation Need for Speed. With third-weekend takings of £1.27m from 458 sites, Grand Budapest Hotel has earned £6.31m in just 17 days. The film has a real shot at overtaking Anderson's animated family flick Fantastic Mr Fox (£9.19m) to become his biggest-ever UK hit.

This morning I posted the list of 2014 MTV Movie Award nominees and one of the first comments was, "Since when does Ros cover the MTV awardsc This doesn't feel right." I can understand the sentiment, but in this day and age is there much of an argument that makes an award show such as the Oscars any more prestigious than the MTV Movie Awardsc Just a couple days ago, John Horn at the "Los Angeles Times" quoted two Oscar voters who privately admitted they didn't see 12 Years a Slave but voted for it anyway. They didn't watch it because they felt it "would be upsetting »

Jared Leto Best Supporting Actor Oscar 2014 speech (photo: Jared Leto, Bono, and producer Guy Oseary at the 2014 Oscar Nominees Luncheon) As expected, first-time Academy Award nominee Jared Leto was the 2014 Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner for his performance as an AIDS-stricken male-to-female transgender person in Jean-Marc Vallée’s Dallas Buyers Club. Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner co-star. Besides thanking those who worked on Dallas Buyers Club; his mother, "a high school dropout and a single mom" who "somehow … managed to make a better life for herself and her children"; Leto, apparently speaking for (many? some? a handful of?) other Oscar 2014 attendees, also remembered people’s protests / revolutions in the Ukraine and Venezuela: "I want to say we are here and as you struggle to … to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible … We’re thinking of you tonight." And of course, Jared Leto also remembered those who have died »
