"I have still yet to meet Jennifer in the flesh, but I had a slight interaction with her where I asked her about 'The Hunger Games' and what it was like, and her life and how much it has changed. It was nice asking someone who has been through the process and is kind of seasoned. »

Woodley further added that 'The American Hustle' star gave her really beautiful advice where she asked her to definitely take the project.

Hollywood under-represents women and the media frequently demeans them. As her hit film is shown in the UK, campaigner Jennifer Siebel Newsom demands a change in attitude
Jennifer Siebel Newsom wasn't even planning to direct her documentary, Miss Representation. She first approached some established female directors to take on her film about how women are portrayed in the mainstream media, but every one declined to do it, saying nobody would hire them afterwards – a stark illustration of who runs the entertainment industry even before you get to the hardhitting statistics and appalling examples of sexism in her film.
We meet in a restaurant in central London ahead of the showing of her film in London on Monday night. Siebel Newsom decided to make the film when she was working as an actor, and pregnant with the first of her three children, a daughter. "I was in the entertainment industry at the time that Britney Spears, »

After a month-long vacation due to the Winter Olympics, Saturday Night Live returned this weekend with Jim Parsons making his first official trip to Rockefeller Center’s Studio 8H. It was the first episode since the fall of 2001 that didn’t include Seth Meyers, who started on Late Night last week, and Parsons shared the spotlight with Colin Jost, the show’s head writer, who now co-anchors “Weekend Update” with Cecily Strong.

After her successful stint in 2007, Ellen DeGeneres returned last night to host her second Academy Awards ceremony.
Her deadpan delivery wasn't to everyone's taste, but we were big fans here at Digital Spy.
When we finished drawing up our petition to get her down at The Comedy Store, we re-watched that opening monologue and rounded up our ten favourite, funniest and most risqué lines.
"June Squibb is nominated for Nebraska. At 84 years old, she is the oldest nominee. She was wonderful in Nebraska. *shouts in Squibb's direction* "I'm Telling Everyone That You Were Wonderful In Nebraska - The Film You Did Was Wonderful!"

London, Mar. 3: Jennifer Lawrence stumbled at the Oscars 2014 bring back memories of a fall that she had suffered previous year at Academy Award.

Just moments later she took tripped again while walking on the red carpet before having her blushes spared by minders and cops.

Three films were considered frontrunners at the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday night, with Gravity and American Hustle earning the most nominations with 10 each while 12 Years a Slave came in a close second with nine nods. In the end, two walked away winners: Gravity technically coming out on top with seven awards (five of those being technical honors, including Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects), and 12 Years a Slave taking three, including the top trophy of the night for Best Picture. (American Hustle got completely shut out.)
Oscars 2014's 25 best »
12 Years A Slave took home Best Picture, but it was Gravity that won the most golden statues with seven Oscar wins at the 86th Academy Awards.
Host Ellen DeGeneres had fun with the star-studded audience, ordering pizza and making Brad Pitt give out paper plates to lucky ladies such as Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, who were all very hungry. DeGeneres also made fun of Jennifer Lawrence’s great fall at last year’s Oscars in her opening monologue and likening the entire awards show to The Hunger Games.
The awards went off swiftly, and not without a hitch or two, but technical difficulties aside, DeGeneres delivered a sweet, funny and uncontroversial show. Her best host moment came when she took a selfie mid-show with Streep that turned into a selfie with anyone in the first three rows who was quick enough to run and beat each other into the frame. »
Ellen DeGeneres is generally thought of as the anti-Ricky Gervais. She's a friendly, inoffensive choice to host an awards show, who is sure to leave everyone with warm and fuzzy feelings ... right? Wrong. In her opening monologue at Sunday night's Academy Awards, Ellen bared her claws, leaving no nominee unspared. The mood may have been a little sharper than Oscar producers expected, but there's no denying that Ellen gave one of the better Oscar monologues in recent memory. Below, the host's best zingers, ranked. Photos: The Night's Stunning Couples5. To Liza Minnellii: "Hello to the best Liza Minnelli impersonator I've ever seen. »

Many of the races at Sunday (March 2) night's Academy Awards seem pre-determined as the ceremony is about to begin. Those guys from "My So-Called Life" and "True Detective" seem like locks. Etc. However, Best Picture is wide open. So let's hope that adds drama, while Ellen DeGeneres adds comedy. Click through and join my 2014 Oscars Live-Blogging. And comment below! 8:25 p.m. Et. So how many times do we figure Jennifer Lawrence is going fall down on tonight's Oscars telecast. Five? 10? Twice that many if she wins? Actually, if she wins, Lupita Nyong'o fans are going to be tripping her. Not Lupita, though. She's too classy for that. 8:27 p.m. There are dozens of people in the HitFix office right now, but I'm hiding out in my office, because I'm dedicated to you, the readers. Because I'd just keep eating lasagna if I were with the main group. Also, »

I was without a doubt looking forward to Son of God, the latest rendition of the greatest story ever told. Just as many Christians have pre-booked and sold out entire theaters in anticipation of this much awaited film. With as much excitement as Star Wars or The Hunger Games is to those film’s respective fans, this film is the Christian faith’s Harry Potter. I for one held great hopes for this film in a world of subpar Christian movies, I was thinking maybe just maybe Son of God might be a film that might not be a total embarrassment to the Christian faith. It was not, however it was also not fantastic. There was artistic license, meaning that Son of God is not completely scripturally accurate. But that is to be expected within moderation. It’s the story of Jesus’ life and is easily seen by all ages »

The autospsy results for Philip Seymour Hoffman were published today, revealing that the actor had a lethal mix of cocaine, heroin, amphetamines and psychoactive drugs known as benzodiazepines in his system when he passed away earlier this month. The initial autopsy was inconclusive, with further results needed to determine the cause of death.
The initial report from early February revealed that the actor was found dead with a hypodermic needle still stuck in his arm, and we also reported a few days after his death on February 2 that over 50 bags of heroin were found in his New York City apartment, along with syringes, paraphernalia and prescription drugs including a drug used to treat heroin addiction, a blood-pressure medication and a muscle relaxant.
According to People, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are making it official. The rumor started when Kunis was seen shopping with a sparkly, new rock on her ring finger, and a source confirmed that she and Kutcher are preparing to tie the knot. After all this time Jackie Burkhart and Michael Kelso might finally walk down the aisle.

Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly planning on taking a good, long break. The Hunger Games star told Empire magazine earlier this month that, “I get little breaks here and there. But on the last day of Hunger Games I’m going to turn my phone off for a year.” Lawrence also opened up to USA Today in an interview saying, “I’ve built my career. I need to build my human life.”

This Sunday is the Academy Awards, the best in film as decided by people who make films. It’s a very grown-up affair with most of the nominated movies rated R, like Wolf of Wall Street and 12 Years a Slave. It begs the question, which movies and actors do Kids think were the best of 2013? With nearly 24,000 votes cast, here are the winners of the Eighth Annual KidsPickFlicks Pick Awards: Pick Movie of the Year: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The film’s first tracking report, released Thursday, indicates that the sci-fi adventure could meet early estimates of a $175 million total domestic gross. Given that the first “Twilight” movie had a $70 million opening weekend (with help from a Thanksgiving weekend berth), Lionsgate and Summit may have yet another hit young adult movie.
However, the tracking numbers are a far cry from the first “Hunger Games” film, which opened at $152 million. Together, the two franchises have grossed almost $5 billion globally so far.
The studio has already scheduled two additional “Divergent” installments, “Insurgent” and “Allegiant.” The three films are each slated a year apart, with the final two hitting theaters in March 2015 and March 2016. The company hasn’t announced whether it »

Summit Entertainment has debuted a batch of new images from director Neil Burger’s (Limitless) upcoming futuristic thriller Divergent, giving us a first look at a number of characters from the book—including Miles Teller’s Peter. For those unfamiliar, the film is based on the Veronica Roth novel of the same name and takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities. Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.” Summit no doubt hopes to mimic the success of another Ya franchise (The Hunger Games), and it looks like they just may succeed as The Wrap reports that Divergent is tracking strong for a $50+ million opening and building. As someone who read and enjoyed the book and is a fan of Burger's visuals, »

Things are coming together nicely for “Divergent.” Early tracking came online Thursday for the young adult sci-fi adventure that Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are banking on becoming a franchise, and it looks on course to open with north of $50 million. That’s a strong number, particularly since the sci-fi adventure, based on Veronica Roth’s bestselling novels and starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, won’t open until March 21. It has time to build.

How films like The Lego Movie are replacing destiny narratives with messages of scepticism and adaptability…
2013 saw the release of a film that sold a message antithetical to the upbeat ‘you can do it if you really try!’ cheerleading prevalent in kids’ movies. ‘Sometimes you can’t do it’, said this film, ‘even if you really, really, really try’.
It’s not as bleak a caution as it might seem. An imaginative scenario in which the hero fails but adapts teaches a useful lesson about flexibility (a skill parents might agree can be a tricky one for kids to take on). Wishing upon a star, working your socks off, thinking you can… in real life none of that guarantees a result. Isn’t it about time kids’ movies became comfortable with that idea? »
