88th-academy-awards-nominations

Nominations for the 88th Annual Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning inside the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills. Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs along with directors Guillermo Del Toro and Ang Lee and actor John Krasinski took turns revealing the nominations.

Leading the pack with 12 nods in all was Alejandro González Iñárritu’s frontier revenge tale, The Revenant. It scored Best Director, Best Picture and Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio to name a few. Nipping at its heels in second place was Mad Max: Fury Road with 10 nods, followed by The Martian and Carol with seven and six respectively.

I’m glad to see that sentimental favorite Sylvester Stallone got noticed for Creed. Having scored another nomination for playing Rocky Balboa is a great story. He could conceivably snag his first Oscar. The original Rocky won Best Picture, but Stallone wasn’t a producer. The categories he was nominated in, Best Actor and Best Screenplay, he didn’t win.

The awards will be handed out on February 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, beginning at 7pm EST on ABC. Check out all the nominees below.

As always, the 2016 Golden Globes were a star-studded affair. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association sure love their celebrities. They’re definitely the biggest star f*ckers around ;)Naturally, the organization set up a photobooth to take pics of all the big names in attendance.

Famed photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh snapped stunning black and white photographs of all those who appeared on the stage- both winners and presenters alike. Check out below some of my favorite images of Lady Gaga, Taraji P. Henson and Jennifer Lawrence to name a few.

Heading into the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, Carol lead the pack with five nominations. Sadly, the 50s-set lesbian love story walked away empty-handed, failing to win in any of the categories it was nominated for. The Big Short was also shut out, not able to convert any of its four nods into wins.

The news was quite different for The Revenant. The grizzly drama won three of the four awards it was up for including Best Picture Drama and Best Actor for Leonardo Dicaprio. The Martian also did quite well, taking home two statues.

Over on the television front, Mr. Robot was the sole multiple winner with two- Best Television Series Drama and Best Supporting Performance in a Series for Christian Slater. Lady Gaga beat out Kirsten Dunst for Best Performance in a Miniseries. Check out all the winners below.

x-men-apocalypse-movie-trailer

Marvel and FOX shared a bit of X-Men: Apocalypse footage to a very lucky few people at Comic-Con this past summer. At long last, the studio has unleashed the first trailer to the masses and it was worth the wait. Instant goosebumps.

Oscar Isacc, who’s unrecognizable given all the CGI, plays the main adversary in the film- the original mutant Apocalypse. Making their debut in the X-Men franchise are Alexandre Shipp and Sophie Turner who play a younger Storm and Jean Grey respectively. Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Ben Hardy (Angel) and Lara Condor (Jubilee) join the party as well. They’ll join returning players including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and others.

X-Men Apocalypse Movie Synopsis

“Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.”

X-Men: Apocalypse storms in theaters on May 27, 2016. It’s the conclusion of Singer’s young-mutant trilogy. Check out the killer trailer below.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves big names and this year is no exception. That’s why they love to split up the competition into drama and comedy categories- more attendees.

The nominations for the 73rd Golden Globes is a star-studded list of who’s who in Hollywood. Matt Damon, Jennifer Lawrence, Will Smith, Amy Schumer and Kate Winslet are just a few who were recognized.

Todd Haynes’ Carol leads the pack on the film side with five nominations. Cate Blanchett faces off against her co-star Rooney Mara for Best Actress in a drama. The film also snagged Best Original Score, Best Director and Best Film Drama nods.

Receiving four nominations were The Revenant, The Big Short and Steve Jobs. Spotlight which has been a strong player this awards season scored a Best Film Drama nom but none of its cast received solo nominations.

On the television side, American Crime, Fargo, Mr. Robot, Outlander, Transparent and Wolf Hall scored the most nominations with 3 apiece. The biggest story here is that for the first time ever Netflix is top dog, beating out HBO who typically is showered with the most nominations.

Lady Gaga scored an acting nomination for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel. In another surprising twist, Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Lowe earned nods for Scream Queens and The Grinder respectively.

The 73rd Golden Globes air on NBC on Jan 10, 2016. Ricky Gervais returns after a three-year hiatus to host the event. Check out all the nominations below.

Joy tells the story of Joy Mangano, the woman behind Miracle Mop and Huggable Hangers. Jennifer Lawrence plays the real-life entrepreneur in the film which reunites her with Bradley Cooper and David O. Russell once again. These three absolutely can’t get enough of each other.

Entertainment Tonight shares an exclusive clip of Lawrence’s character at QVC about to pimp out her product. Naturally, you can’t include a scene involving the home shopping network without Joan Rivers. The late comedian was a regular fixture, always on hand to promote her latest product.

Russell convinced Melissa Rivers to portray her mother for a buzzworthy cameo. Obviously, Melissa obliged. Read below what she revealed to ET about her time on set. Check out the clip afterward. The resemblance is uncanny.

“My mother had a couple lovely encounters with Bradley and she was a fan of Jen‘s even though there was a situation once at Fashion Police where someone said something and Jennifer didn’t like it and kind of fired back,” Melissa continued. “It wasn’t my mother who said it and it kind of got lost in translation. The first thing Jennifer said was, ‘Even though we had that disagreement that really had nothing to do with her, I was a huge fan,’ and quoted back her favorite Fashion Police line ever to me: ‘That dress is so ugly it looks like it would be good at math.’ So here she is quoting my own show back to me, then she said to David, ‘I’m so happy you brought me someone to play with!’”

jennifer-lawrence-prank-interview

Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox aka the Smosh Brothers are known for pulling pranks on their guests. Imagine their surprise when Jennifer Lawrence, who’s equally known for being a good sport, appears irritated by their stunts. To be fair, pulling out a pita and referring it to as Peeta from the Hunger Games would annoy anyone. #cheesy

When Jennifer lays down the law (pun intended) and walks out the interview, Hecox is flummoxed and looks like he just shit his pants. J-Law’s co-stars, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, then appear to scold the interviewers about their unprofessional behavior. Shortly after, Jennifer rolls in to let them know that the tables have been reversed and that they were pranked.

All the hijinks were courtesy of Prank It Forward for a superfan named Dylan Miceli-Nelson who is suffering from muscular dystrophy. Check out the clip below. One of the highlights features Lawrence shooting an apple off Lecox’s head. Turns out, she has as good of an aim as her on-screen persona, Katniss.

imdb-25th-anniversary

On October 17, the Internet’s go-to destination for information on all things related to films, television and celebrities, turned 25. I can’t imagine life without it. I never have that nagging feeling now of not being able to figure out where I recognize a certain actor from.

“Over the course of 25 years, IMDb has evolved from my personal film diary to the #1 movie website in the world,” said Col Needham, IMDb’s founder and CEO. “Even as we celebrate our heritage, we are energized by our mission to bring the IMDb experience to every customer on every screen. Moving forward, our vision is that wherever customers are engaging with content, IMDb will be there enriching the viewing experience – from your local movie theater to your living room TV to your phone and everywhere in between.”

In honor of this milestone, IMDb revealed the Top 25 stars of all-time. These stars have consistently ranked highest on the IMDb weekly STARmeter chart over the past 25 years. The rankings are based on the actual page views of IMDb’s more than 200 million unique monthly visitors.

A few of the placements might shock you, including Pamela Anderson and Lindsay Lohan making the cut. The Baywatch actress ranking in the Top 5 certainly took me by surprise. Find out below who took the top slot along with the entire list.
