It's that time of year again --Hollywood's award season! The time of year where people obsess over who-won -what-wearing-what-on-the-arm-of-who. Did you get all that? More importantly, film greatness is honored and recognized. While the Academy Awards have received lukewarm reviews in the past few years over choice of host, a slow-moving program, and generally unfunny punchlines; everyone gets excited over who will win best Actor and Actress in a leading role, and that final nailbiting moment: Best Picture of the Year.
(For the record, leads we're pulling for are Brad Pitt in Moneyball and Glenn Close in Albert Nobbs.)
How excited are you?!
It's terrible that The Dark Knight Rises will not be in theaters until July of next year. 2012 seems so far away...the strain of multiple college courses have barely made their biannual papercut on your summer vacation psyche social life yet.
JustJared got ahold of some Dark Knight sneak peek goodness, mostly with Anne Hathaway, portraying Selina Kyle (Catwoman) in an array of different slinky outfits. Also present (of course!) is Bruce Wayne himself, Christian Bale.
Last night, millions of people were gathered behind their TV to watch the 83rd Academy Awards Ceremony. Los Angeles was without any doubts the place to be. But let's be honest, the ceremony was tasteless.
Hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco were too much. They tried really hard to do their best but it didn't pay off. They are actors, not comedians.
Melissa Leo dropped the F-Bomb during her acceptance speech for her Supporting win in The Fighter: "When I watched Kate two years ago, it looked so f---ing easy." she said. Very classy.
The Social Network was one of the biggest movies of 2010. It was highly praised by critics, and was nominated for quite a few awards at last nights Academy Awards ceremony.
In particular, Trent Reznor and his collaborator, Atticus Ross, were nominated—and won for Best Original Score for their work in The Social Network. They were up against some pretty impressive competition, including: Hans Zimmer’s work on “Inception,” and Alexandre Desplat’s work on “The King’s Speech.”
It is the first Academy Award won by Reznor. He won a Golden Globe for Best Original Score at the Golden Globes for his work in the movie, as well.
Reznor and Ross will also be working on another David Fincher movie, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
February 27th will definitely be James Franco's night...
Being nominated for Best Actor (127 Hours) and co-hosting the Academy Awards is not enough for the 32-year-old actor.
He just revealed to Canadian show Etalk that he will be hosting - and performing at - a very exclusive after-party in a place kept secret...
"I'm a partner in a bar that's opening up, and the after-after-after-after-party is going to be at my new bar. It's at a secret location. And that's what I'm looking forward to because I'm going to be singing there at the bar. I'll be singing at the Oscars, but there will be a private performance at my new bar."
Day -27 before the Ceremony!
This morning, Mo'Nique and the President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Tom Sherak, announced the nominees for the Oscars. And there is no big surprises in any of the major categories...
So without further delay, here's the complete list of nominees.
The Kids Are All Right
The King’s Speech
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
Now that the Golden Globes are over, it's time to talk about the Oscars...
The full list of nominees for the 83rd Oscar Awards will be announced on Tuesday, January 25 and the Acadamy Awards Ceremony will take place on Sunday, February 27, 2011, telecast live from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
This year, James Franco and Anne Hathaway (her again!) will succeed to Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin to host the most expected ceremony of the year... And Franco promised that "there will be some singing and some dancing!" We can't wait to see that!
Awards season is in full swing!! With the Golden Globes behind us and the Academy Awards on the horizon, every Hollywood starlet’s stylist is on the hunt for the perfect gown.
Searching for awards season dresses is not a task for the faint of heart. It may consist of gallivanting from New York to London and Milan fashion week in search of the Holy Grail. Once the dress is found it’s a dash to the red carpet. The client is fitted, the dress tailored, shoes wrangled, jewelry borrowed, and hair and makeup debated. The A-lister is dressed and sent down the red carpet *fingers crossed* in hopes of snagging a coveted award and landing on the top of everyone’s best dressed list.
