Julianne Moore Becomes Oscar Frontrunner!

13 November 2014 9:22 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The whole year, I have been looking for The Oscar season frontrunner for Best Actress. I was hoping Shailene Woodley from "The Fault in Our Stars" would squeak in, but now, the lovely, talented, and ultra-sweet Julianne Moore is the one to beat!

Her double whammy performances for "Map to the Stars" and "Still Alice" solidify that notion. And just this morning, the Palm Springs International Film Festival just called her The best actress of the year! Moore will be receiving the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, at the festival's Awards Gala.

I can't wait! I will be on the red carpet to chat it up with the fantastic Miss Moore! She will be joining the equally talented Eddie Redmayne from "The Theory of Everything" at the gala where the actor is set to receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor.

Here's the full press release from the Psiff:

Julianne Moore Named Best Actress At Palm Springs International Film Festival

13 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Julianne Moore might be the hottest actress in the Oscar race this year, and most voters haven’t even seen her film yet. This four-time Oscar nominee and Emmy winner for Game Change is considered overdue for a win. Still Alice, in which she plays a victim of early-onset Alzheimer’s, offers her a great opportunity to finally take home that statuette, and today the Palm Springs International Film Festival announced that she will receive the Actress prize at this year’s gala on January 3. Eddie Redmayne was previously announced for the fest’s Actor prize, and both are considered front-runners in the Oscar race, so Psiff is just jumping on the bandwagon.

Every precursor award a contender can get just makes them seem more inevitable for the final win. Moore certainly is deserving, and it is looking like her year. In May, she won the Best Actress prize at »

11 November 2014 3:36 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After tackling political drama and comedy with the likes of Recount, Game Change and The Campaign, director Jay Roach is heading further into the past for a historical drama called Trumbo. The title refers to screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, a real Hollywood screenwriter who defied the House Un-American Activities Committee by refusing to testify regarding accusations of ties to communism. Trumbo ended up being blacklisted and sentenced to nearly a year in prison but never stopped writing movies, and now this first look photo shows the Oscar winner brought to life by "Breaking Bad" Emmy winner Bryan Cranston. Here's the first image from Jay Roach's Trumbo from Entertainment Weekly: Trumbo is directed by Jay Roach and written by television writer John McNamara. The film tells the story of real-life screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, the scribe of classics like Spartacus and Roman Holiday, who was blacklisted and sent to prison during the »

Terrence Howard Has An Empire To Protect In Trailer For Fox’s Midseason Hip-Hop Drama

27 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s fall lineup, Gotham aside, has delivered a whole slew of disappointments, with heavily promoted reality series Utopia landing softly and new series like Gracepoint, Mulaney and Red Band Society proving dead on arrival. However, maybe midseason hip-hop drama Empire will turn things around for the network.

Featuring a star-studded cast led by Terrence HowardTaraji P. Henson, Gabourey Sidibe and Courtney Love, the show is looking increasingly like a potential hit. Like ABC’s Nashville, which is currently in its third season, Empire aims to blend the soapy, scandalous drama of Dynasty (which show creator Lee Daniels, of The Butler and Precious fame, has cited as an inspiration) with toe-tapping music. And judging by the first trailer, which you can check out below, the series has been wholly successful in that endeavor.

Terrence Howard played a character having a hard time breaking into the world of hip hop in his breakthrough film "Hustle and Flow," but now the Oscar nominee is on top of the music industry in the upcoming Fox drama "Empire." Oscar nominee Lee Daniels is re-teaming with his “The Butler" writer Danny Strong (“Game Change") for the new drama about a family dynasty set in the positively Shakespearean world of hip hop, where family loyalties are tested by the temptations of greed and betrayal.  A new promo for the series aired last night during the World Series, and it promises drama, sex, beats and more.  Watch it here: The series also stars Emmy nominee Taraji P. Henson (“Person of Interest") and "Precious" Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe, and includes new music from legendary producer Timbaland. "Empire" is executive produced by Daniels, Strong, Brian Grazer ("24") Ilene Chaiken ("The L Word") and »

Rosie Perez Is the Best Thing About the New View, Says People's Critic

15 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The post-Barbara Walters version of The View made its premiere Monday on ABC, using Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" to greet the new panel: "The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate… I shake it off, shake it off." This seems like a rather defensive posture for a show starting its 18th season. But then again. Other than new host Rosie Perez talking about how she learned kung fu "just in case I had to kick some ass," the hour didn't go too well. It was stiff, polite and airless, like one of those Taiwanese parody cartoons that "dramatize" news scandals. »

‘Westworld’ has the potential to be TV’s next great event

31 August 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A year ago this week it was announced that Jonathan Nolan will act as showrunner and writer alongside Lisa Joy on a new HBO series based on Michael Crichton’s book and cult classic film Westworld. Busiest man in the world J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot cohorts Bryan Burk and Jerry Weintraub will also produce the new series. Variety reported that the HBO rendition of Westworld is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”

Something must have happened to Crichton at a theme park in his youth because Westworld is his first of two theme park disaster stories, the second being Jurassic Park. Westworld is the story of a Disney World-like park with multiple themed sections inhabited by lifelike androids that allow guests to act out their wildest fantasies. Of course there is a malfunction and the robots go rogue. »

Emmys 2014: What Should Win Outstanding TV Movie? Take Our Poll!

13 August 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If history is any indicator, Emmy voters like a little, well, history in their Outstanding TV Movie winners.

The last four champs in the category — 2010’s Temple Grandin, 2009’s Grey Gardens and 2008’s Recount and 2007’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee — all had their roots in real-life characters and situations.

Heck, even in the last three years — when the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences merged Movies and Miniseries into one overarching division — two of the three victors (2012’s Game Change and 2013’s Behind the Candelabra) followed that trend.

Ed Harris to play a really, really evil person in HBO sci-fi 'Westworld'

11 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today in perfect casting: Ed Harris is set to play the "distillation of pure villainy" in HBO's "Westworld." The three-time Academy Award nominee has joined producer J.J. Abrams' upcoming sci-fi series as the ominously-monikered Man in Black, joining previously-cast stars including Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, James Marsden and Kyle Bornheimer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Jonathan Nolan ("Person of Interest") is set to executive produce and direct the pilot from a script he co-wrote with fellow executive producer Lisa Joy ("Burn Notice"). Described as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin," the series was inspired by "Jurassic Park" novelist Michael Crichton's 1973 sci-fi film of the same name. Crichton wrote and directed the film, which centered on a group of vacationers struggling to survive a deadly robot malfunction at a futuristic Western-themed adult amusement park. »
