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.

It was all about Leonardo DiCaprio at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards. Not just because he won Best Actor Drama or that his film The Revenant slayed the competition. Instead, it was all of his candid moments that got the Internet buzzing.

When Lady Gaga walked towards the stage to accept her Golden Globe, she accidentally bumped into DiCaprio’s chair. His slightly shady reaction was priceless. Naturally, memes popped up immediately. The 41-year-old actor explained his reaction to Entertainment Tonight. Find out below.

Leo also drove the Twitterverse into a frenzy when Kate Winslet and he hugged before a commercial break. The Titanic reunion made millions ecstatic, including Jane Fonda. Check out the hilarious moment 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.

With four Academy Award nominations to his credit, it’s rather shocking that Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t have an Oscar statue on his mantle yet. The 40-year-old is one of the finest actors of his generation without his doubt. Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman) could be his ticket to Oscar glory.

The Revenant is inspired by true events experienced by a 19th century frontiersman who is mauled by a bear and left for dead by his expedition crew. The first teaser trailer is beyond tense with its beating drums and heavy breathing.

Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Lukas Haas, and Will Poulter also appear in the film. Christian Bale was originally tapped to play the lead before DiCaprio stepped in. The Revenant heads into theaters on Christmas Day, just in time for Oscar consideration.

The Revenant Movie Synopsis

In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.

All is not completely hopeless for Lindsay Lohan. If she’s ever in doubt about making a legitimate comeback, all she needs to do is look at Robert Downey Jr. for inspiration. There once was a time when the 48-year-old actor was considered damaged goods after a string of drug arrests, rehab stints and box office bombs. Now, he’s Forbes Highest-Paid Actor In Hollywood based on earnings from June 2012 til June 2013.

According to the publication, Downey Jr. raked in an astonishing $75 million over the past year. A massive sum bolstered by gigantic blockbuster hits like The Avengers and Iron Man 3. Both of those movies made over $1 billion at the international box office.

Coming in second place is everyone’s favorite former stripper turned Hollywood A-lister, Channing Tatum. The 33-year-old new dad’s runner up status was buoyed by the success of Magic Mike. Since he self-financed the flick, he laughed all the way to the bank with most of the film’s profits. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below. There’s a couple of surprises including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson making the cut.

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

In: Matt, Movies

The reviews are mixed on Baz Luhrmann’s take of The Great Gatsby, which opens in theaters today and kicks off the Cannes film festival next week. But while some critics have panned the film, I was LIVING for it the entire time.

In case you never read the book, the story is told by Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) who, while chasing success in the roaring 20s stock market boom, rents a modest cottage on long island only to find that he has moved next door to the home of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), an extravagant mansion that hosts extremely lavish parties.
