Last year, Sally Field received HRC’s Ally For Equality Award for all her support for the LGBT community. In her speech, she talked passionately about her gay son. Once again, the 67-year-old actress is speaking about her 26-year-old child, Sam.

Field penned an open letter talking about her experiences as a mother and seeing Sam’s struggles growing up. She wrote the letter in the wake of “License To Discriminate” bills popping up across the United States recently. Sally encourages people to donate to the HRC to “fight back against these efforts and continue to press forward for non-discrimination initiatives.” Check out her passionate letter below.

Not everyone has a happy ending,” says Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper). No truer words have been said. The first official trailer highlights all the adversaries Spider-Man faces in the highly-anticipated sequel. It’s all about the villains. Making sure Peter Parker doesn’t get his happily ever after are Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Harry Osborn aka Hobgoblin (Dane DeHaan).

It’s an interesting move to have Spider-Man battle three foes in the film. One of the biggest complaints of the final film in the Sam Raimi trilogy was that Spider-Man had to budget his time battling Sandman, Venom and Franco’s pumpkin bomb throwing bad guy. Who says superheroes can’t multi-task ;)

If you’re wondering if there will be any other villains for Spidey to battle in future installments, pay close attention to the trailer. Doctor Octopus’ mechanical arms and the Vulture’s wings briefly appear. Perhaps it’s a hint. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014. Check out the trailer below.

Every now and then, Zach Galifianakis does a hilariously awkward faux interview segment on Funny Or Die with celebrities and this week, the actor/comedian takes on some of the biggest names in Hollywood that are in the running for Oscars this season in Between Two Ferns: Oscar Buzz Edition.

The actors he interviews include: Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooper, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts, and Sally Field.

If you’ve every scene an episode of Between Two Ferns, you’ll know that these actors are pretty much walking into a trap and are not walking into a conventional interview. Galifianakis doesn’t give them the respect their used to by other interviewers and asks some really embarrassing and off topic questions. Hathaway shows up drunk for her interview, Jennifer Lawrence puts him in his place, and Bradley Cooper and him have a huge fight. Watch the hilarious interviews below.

2013 Oscar Watch: 85th Academy Awards Nominations

In: Donovan, Movies

Let the official Oscar campaigning begin. Even though the race started long before today, with the nominations now revealed, the handshaking and butt kissing to Academy voters kicks into high gear. This is exactly the part Joaquin Phoenix criticized when he slammed the Oscars. Despite that dig, as predicted by him, Phoenix snagged an Oscar nod for his work in The Master. Can he parlay his “unique” campaigning to Oscar glory when the winners are announced on February 24, 2013 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood?

Oscar host Seth Macfarlane and Emma Stone woke up extremely early today to read out the nominations for the 85th Academy Awards. Side note: Macfarlane is the first host to announce the nominations since Charlton Heston did double duty back in 1972. As widely predicted, Lincoln dominated with 12 nominations including Best Director, Best Film, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor. Coming in second was Life of Pi with 11 nods. Unlike Lincoln, Life of Pi didn’t score any acting nods and their haul came mostly from the creative categories. Check out all the nominations and my commentary including snubs in all the major awards below.

The BAFTAs aka British Academy Film Awards really don’t factor too much in the Oscar race. It’s just another excuse to dress up and publicly campaign for your chances at securing an Academy Award. That being said, their nominations fall mostly in line with many of the Oscar precursors. Even across the pond, Steven Spielberg’s film about an American president is the one to beat. Lincoln dominated with 10 nominations. The historical drama secured nods for Best Film, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress to name a few.

The musical Les Miserables and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi came in second with 9 nominations a piece. The 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise, Skyfall, picked up 8 BAFTAs including nods for Javier Bardem and Dame Judi Dench in the supporting acting categories. Anna Karenina which has been mostly shut out in many Oscar precursors, racked up several nominations mostly in the creative categories such as makeup, production design, costume design etc…

The BAFTAs, hosted by Stephen Fry, will take place on Sunday, February 10 at London’s Royal Opera House and be broadcast on BBC One. Check out all the nominees below.

2013 Golden Globes Nominations Announced

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows

Not only did the Hollywood Foreign Press Association debut the first promo for the 70th Golden Globes featuring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but they also revealed their nominations. Leading the pack with seven nods is Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Not surprising, given all the other Oscar precursor love. On the flip side, Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained shockingly earned five nominations including one for Leonardo DiCaprio.

If you think about it, DiCaprio along with a few other out of left field nods aren’t too earth-shattering given that the HFPA have a reputation of being HUGE star f*ckers. They love to honor A-list celebs in hopes that they’ll attend, making their event the most star-studded one of the awards season.

On the TV front, the HFPA have a couple of head-scratchers as well. Mad Men for the first time isn’t nominated but NBC’s polarizing Smash is. Granted they’re competing in different categories, but still. The Debra Messing musical beat out Parks & Recreations, Suburgatory, Community and a whole whackload of other worthy sitcoms. Fans of ABC’s Nashville will be elated that both Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton were recognized. While Modern Family dominates the Emmys, only Sofia Vergara and Eric Stonestreet earned nominations in the acting categories.

Without further ado, check out all of the 2013 Golden Globe nominations below which were revealed by presenters Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms this morning. You’ll also find my commentary for most of the major movie categories and how they differ from the recently announced SAG nominations. Be sure to leave your comments afterward. I would to hear your thoughts on the HFPA’s nods.

The 2013 SAG Nominations Announced

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows

If there is one Oscar precursor that is the most reliable, it’s hands down the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAGs). The acting guild represents the biggest voting block at the Academy Awards. Bar none when it comes to the acting categories the SAGs have the best record in recent years. If you’re planning to enter your Oscar office pool, I highly recommend you take note of the nominees and winners from this particular group. The SAGs honor outstanding work in both film and television. Since it’s all about the Oscars, I’m only focusing on the movie nominations.

While they don’t have a Best Picture category, they have an Outstanding Performance by a Cast as their big prize. What’s notable with the nominees in this category is the omission of Zero Dark Thirty. Long thought as an Oscar frontrunner for Best Picture, it’s snub have a few pundits scratching their heads. That isn’t the only surprise with the 2013 nominations. Check them all out below with my commentary for all the movie acting categories.

At the beginning of the awards season, Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty looked unstoppable. With Lincoln leading the pack with 13 nominations at the 2013 Critics Choice Movie Awards, it’s looking like a two horse race for the Best Picture Oscar. The Steven Spielberg film earned CCMA nods for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Best Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones) and Best Supporting Actress (Sally Field) to name a few.

Also scoring multiple noms is Jennifer Lawrence. The 22-year-old actress has four chances to win an award when the winners are announced on The CW on Thursday, January 10, 2013. She’s in the running for Best Actress, Best Actress in a Comedy, and Best Ensemble for The Silver Linings Playbook, as well as Best Actress in an Action Movie for The Hunger Games. Her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper was also recognized.

Out of all the nominations, the one I’m most excited for is Naomi Watts finally getting some love for her amazing work in The Impossible. I attended an early screening of the flick and was blown away. It’s her movie along with Tom Holland’s breakthrough performance. That kid is EVERYTHING in the tsunami flick. Holland as well received some love from the Critics Choice Movie Awards. Check out all the nominees below.
