Laura Prepon and Ben Foster are trying to plan their wedding. However, the Orange Is the New Black actress says, "He's going off to do two movies. I just wrapped last week. It's just, you know, scheduling. It's a lot." I caught up with Prepon at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of her movie The Hero. "I'm happy," she said after posing on the carpet with Foster. "It's amazing. He's the love of my life." The two were first linked in July. Their engagement was revealed in October when Prepon wore her engagement ring to the New York premiere of The Girl on the Train. "We want a really small wedding but we have a lot of people that we love »

Whether he’s reading to kids at the White House, hitting up local bookstores on Black Friday, or giving recommendations to his daughters, President Barack Obama may as well be known as the Commander in Books.

But long before he played the mysterious therapist in The Girl on the Train, the boxing legend in Hands of Stone or the risky thrill-seeker in Point Break, the Venezuelan actor pursued political journalism and hoped to become a diplomat. Though he has no regrets — "I have an amazing platform as an actor to try to help as much as I can," he said — politics remains »

Ballots were due on Friday and the nail-biting will finally cease at 5am on Tuesday, Jan. 24. It’s been another jam-packed phase one for Oscar season, though one that didn’t have quite as many twists and turns as you’d expect. After all, a certain musical started the season as the presumed frontrunner, and it hasn’t budged since.
Of course, as soon as you think you’ve got it all figured out, the Academy keeps you on your toes. So how will the nominations for the 89th annual Oscars play out next week? There will be surprises, surely. There always are. Figuring out what they might be is the fun. Check out my final picks if you’re curious to know one guy’s opinion, but as we head into this final lap, a few lingering questions remain.
How many best picture nominees will there be?

It’s not far off. In less than a week now, the Academy Award nominations will be announced. Voting has come to an end, so the results basically have been tabulated. It’s just a waiting game at this point. Like an expectant parent, you’ll find me pacing around, a concerned look on my face. What will the Academy do? Will La La Land tied the record for most nominations by a single film? Will any other movie come close to matching that one’s total? Those questions and more are what I’m attempting to pin down. You’ll see what I’m predicting below, but just remember…these aren’t my final picks just yet. I know it’s only been a few days since the last update, but that’s the nature of the beast in this final week. What you’ll see below is a »

Pick of the WeekBad Day at Black Rock [Warner Archive]
What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.
Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and »
