Brad Pitt and the kids can celebrate - Angelina Jolie says she won't be cooking Christmas dinner and she's sure her family will be pleased. The 39-year-old actress, who has six children, Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with husband Brad Pitt, admits they're relieved she isn't in charge of roasting their turkey. Asked about her plans for the festive season, the 'Unbroken' director said: ''I will not be cooking - to the benefit of everyone.'' But the Oscar winner's second eldest son Pax, who helped bake her wedding cake in August, will likely be involved in preparing their festive feast. She told People magazine: ''Pax loves to cook.'' Angelina ordered a ready-made turkey to celebrate Thanksgiving with her children in London last month. The 'Maleficent' star recently claimed she wanted to learn how to cook. She said: ''Now that I'm officially a wife, »
The "Unbroken" premiere in Los Angeles last night was a family affair.While Angelina Jolie had to sit the red carpet out due to a case of the chicken pox, husband Brad Pitt and children Shiloh, Maddox and Pax turned out to promote the film in her place. They were joined by Brad's parents, Jane and William. Not a bad consolation prize, right?This is one of the few times the kids have done any publicity appearances with their famous parents. They attended the premiere of "Maleficent" earlier this year, but soon after photos of the family were released, they were then recalled.Pax, Shiloh and Maddox all dressed up more than their dapper dad for the event, the three of them wearing suits and ties at the premiere. Shiloh looks like the perfect mix of her mom and dad -- and we love how comfortable she looks in all the photos! »

Speaking about the launch of the next series in January, Willis suggested that the casting is always "the best thing" about Big Brother.
"It's always got a cast that the people behind the show know will make magic on screen," she said. "It's always done so well. There's a lot that goes into the thought process of how these characters are all going to work together."
Willis admitted that she had sneaked a look at the cast list for the next series, saying: "I normally stay very blind to it all right up until the last minute but this year I've actually seen part of a list very early.
"This is going to be one of the best ever series of the show. I have such high hopes for the series - that's how good »
The 39-year-old said that she had to "fight" for the chance to direct the war biopic, which tells the story of Olympic athlete Louis Zamperini.
She said: "I had to fight for the job. There was really no shame — it was anything I could do to get this job. I brought these boards in this garbage bag up to this room and that was my big pitch."
Meanwhile, the Maleficent actress said that taking on the film was a "big challenge", and involved a great deal of research and discussion with Zamperini before his death in July.
"There were many days where I had my head in my hands but the one person who told me I could do it was Louie," she explained, adding that she was "so inspired" by him.

The Golden Globe and SAG nominations are in, and there is one more award show announcing its noms before the Oscars say who's up in January: the Critics' Choice Awards.

Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" tops the nominations for the 20th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards brought to you by the Broadcast Film Critics Association of which I'm a proud voting member! Our deadline to vote for the nomination round was last Friday and I'm happy to say that most of my favorites made it to the final ballot!
"Birdman," which received 13 nods is now competing with "Boyhood," "Gone Girl," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Nightcrawler," "Selma," "The Theory of Everything," "Unbroken," and "Whiplash" for the Best Picture of the Year!
The winners for the Critics' Choice Movie Awards will be revealed live on A&E from the Hollywood Palladium on January 15th at 9pm Et/ 6pm Pt. Coincidentally, this is the same day the Academy Award nominations will be announced. Legendary Super Bowl Champion Michael Strahan will serve as the show.s host.
Birdman is clearly a favorite this awards season, at least when it comes to nominations as it once again tops a list of nominees, this time the 2015 Critics Choice Awards as it leads the field with 13 total nominations followed by The Grand Budapest Hotel, which continues to surge this awards season with 11 nominations, and Boyhood with eight. Full disclosure, I'm part of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca), which nominates and votes on these awards, but I'm a little nervous my nominees this year weren't counted as I mistakenly missed the deadline by a few hours thinking it was on Saturday, not Friday. Oops, though looking at these nominations it doesn't seem as if it would have mattered. For example, I don't see Locke anywhere, Carrie Coon (Gone Girl) didn't get a supporting actress nomination, A Most Wanted Man didn't get an adapted screenplay nomination, no nomination for The Raid 2 in Best Action Movie, »

The noms for Angelina Jolie (“Unbroken”) and Ava DuVernay (“Selma”) mean that two of the six director contenders are women. Among the films earning more attention than in this year’s previous kudos announcements: “Interstellar” (seven); “Guardians of the Galaxy” (five) and “Unbroken” (four).
The voting, by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn., is one of the more reliable Oscar predictors, in terms of winners. The group has matched the eventual Oscar-winning best pic in 12 of the last 15 years.
As for nominations, the Ccma are a good guide for what’s popular in awards conversations, but several factors limit the noms’ powers as an Oscar omen.
For one thing, this group cites six contenders in most categories, compared to five from the Academy. »

Continuing its romp through the critics kudos this awards season, Fox Searchlight’s Birdman drew a whopping 13 nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. In fact it’s a big day for Fox in general as Searchlight’s March release, The Grand Budapest Hotel was remembered to the tune of 11 nominations, while big Fox scored 6 nominations with Gone Girl. All three compete for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and significant acting nods. This is a big boost in particular for Budapest, coming on the heels of its SAG nod for Outstanding Cast as well as four key Golden Globe nominations. Usually films opening as early as March are largely forgotten when it comes to Best Picture attention, but Budapest could be a rare exception in recent years if this triumph for the Wes Anderson comedy is repeated at the Oscars. The last film that opened as early as March, »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association's (Bfca*) annual announcement of nominees is particularly informative for one key reason: it's a broad assessment of the year from a vast voting body. The only two such events prior to the end of the year tend to be this and the Screen Actors Guild's nominations announcement, each setting the early stage in terms of what seems to be appealing across a wide spectrum. Other guilds then add to that equation in January. So where did the Bfca's chips end up this season? For starters, in what has become a trend for critics groups that provide a nominations stage, Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" led overall with 13 mentions. And in what has also become a trend with critical precursors, Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" (11) and Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" (8) were right up there, too, making starkly clear what the critical darlings are this season. »

Disney's Maleficent, Ursula and Cruella de Vil are all joining Once Upon A Time for the next half-season. How will they fare?
This review contains spoilers.
4.11 Heroes And Villains
Broken hearts and questions of fate bring the first half of season 4 to a sombre close. The Frozen story that has dominated this season was neatly resolved last week, leaving nothing but farewells for Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff. That leaves some underlying issues—Rumple’s evil plot and the search for the storybook author—to come to the forefront in a midseason finale that keeps the emotional tension on full flame from start to finish.
The first heartbreak comes from the Regina and Robin Hood relationship. Regina restores Marian, Marian is grateful, Robin still wants to be with Regina, and things are going all too bizarrely well for the reformed Evil Queen. (Marian is okay with Robin being with Regina instead of her? »
