For the second straight year, Robert Downey, Jr tops Forbes Highest Paid Actors list. The 49-year-old actor leads the pack with an astonishing $75 million earned between June 2013 and June 2014. Coincidentally, the Iron Man star earned the same amount on the 2013 list.

Channing Tatum who took the runner-up slot last year lands nowhere on the 2014 Top 10 list. Taking his place is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson with $52 million, jumping from fifth place with $46 million last year. Rounding out the top three is Bradley Cooper with $46 million.

The lone Avenger to accompany Downey, Jr. on the 2014 list is Chris Hemsworth with $37 million. I’m a little surprised Chris Evans didn’t make the cut, when Will Smith did. When was the last time the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air starred in a hit movie? Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

There’s no denying that the women rule the red carpet during the awards season. It’s all about who they’re wearing and what accessories their respective stylists chose for them. Given all the money and publicity when the right gown meets the right actress generates, it makes sense.

As any self-respecting fashion gay I love checking out what the women wear as well. However, I thought I’d shine the spotlight on a few of last night’s sharpest dressed men. Check out my Top 15 picks of the sexiest studs to don tuxedos at the 86th Academy Awards. Be sure to cast your vote on your favorites afterward.

The last time Jonah Hill hosted Saturday Night Live, Tom Hanks made a surprise appearance during his opening monologue. Hill pulled off another major cameo last night. This time, he enlisted his Wolf of Wall Street co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, to provide some laughs. The duo’s recreation of a classic scene from Titanic had me in stitches. The image of Hill and DiCaprio nuzzling up against each other was everything. It’s worth noting that this was Leonardo’s first visit to SNL. Surprising right?

The night had several brilliant moments. Naturally, they tackled Justin Bieber’s recent arrest. My favorite of the bunch was the straight men’s figure skating team, serving as backup to represent the US at the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics. Other highlights include the Lamborghini, Couples Quiz and Benihana sketches. DiCaprio wasn’t the only surprise guest of the night. Michael Cera popped up in a hilarious Her parody. Bastille was the night’s musical guest and gave two stellar performances. Check out all the clips below.

2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards Winners

2014-critics-choice-awards

The 19th annual Critics Choice Movie Awards were held on Thursday, January 16 at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport. Aisha Tyler hosted the event, honoring the finest achievements in filmmaking the past year.

Gravity rocketed to the top, walking away with a record seven wins. However, 12 Years A Slave was the big winner by snatching Best Picture honors. For the most part, the winners lined up with those who walked away with Golden Globes statues a few days ago. The most notable exception was Lupita Nyong’o taking Best Supporting Actress honors over Jennifer Lawrence.

The American Hustle actress shouldn’t be too worried about her Oscar chances. Last year, Jessica Chastain beat her for Best Actress at the Critics Choice but lost the Academy Award. As much as I love J-Law, I’m rooting for Lupita. I love an underdog. American Hustle didn’t walk away empty-handed. It took home four awards for Best Acting Ensemble, Best Hair and Makeup, Best Comedy and Best Actress in a Comedy for Amy Adams.

Speaking of Adams, it’s looking like a tight race for the Best Actress Oscar between Amy and Cate Blanchett. Once again, both won a statue, but since comedy and drama were separated, it’s difficult to predict who’ll bask in Oscar glory. At the upcoming SAGs, Adams was snubbed so there’s no direct competition between these two at a major awards show until the main event. Amy is the only Best Actress Oscar nominee this year without an Academy Award statue to her name. Once again, I’m rooting for the underdog.

Over on the men’s side, Matthew McConaughey is solidifying himself as the frontrunner. Don’t count out Leonardo DiCaprio just yet. The Wolf of Wall Street is picking up steam. DiCaprio could sneak pass McConaughey for the win because Leo has never won despite being nominated numerous times. It could be his time finally. Check out all the winners below.

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.

Leonardo DiCaprio Is A Big Bad Wolf On Wall Street

In: Donovan, Movies

Based on the memoir of the same name, The Wolf of Wall Street is a true story about Jordan Belfort. The Gordon Gekko-idolizing figure presided over a brokerage firm that operated as a boiler room which cheated investors for $200 million. He spent 22 months in jail after confessing to money-laundering and securities fraud. The film revolves on Belfort’s hard partying ways which includes, believe it or not, throwing dwarves, sinking yachts and romancing models.

Leonardo DiCaprio once again reunites with director Martin Scorsese. The 38-year-old actor is joined in the flick by a star-studded cast including Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey,Jon Bernthal, Kyle Chandler, Margot Robbie, Cristin Milioti, and Jean Dujardin. Check out the first trailer for the flick below.

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.

Watch Five Minutes From The Great Gatsby

In: Donovan, Movies

The more footage I see from Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic novel, the more I’m itching to see it. I’m just crossing my fingers that I’m not extremely let down. Even if the story sucks, the visuals are certain to impress, especially in 3D. Luhrmann never disappoints in that department. Once again, he looks to have hit a home run capturing the glamorous roaring 20s.

Warner Bros. recently released seven clips, roughly about five minutes of footage, from the highly-anticipated film. The selection of clips give a good impression of the lavish visual style created by Baz. Most of the scenes feature several characters talking about Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), often in contradictory, elusive terms. Tobey Maguire’s Nick Carraway, the inquisitive narrator, is the one most prominently shown in the footage. Watch the video below.
