WOAH! That was intense. Coming from the man who gave us Children of Men how could I expect anything else. Alfonso Cuarón co-wrote Gravity with his son Jonás. The 51-year-old also directed, produced and co-edited the film. I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes a cameo in the film somehow.
Though Sandra Bullock and George Clooney headline the film, they weren’t the original choices. During pre-production numerous stars were attached and offered the roles including Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Marion Cotillard for Bullock’s role and Robert Downey Jr. for Clooney. Personally, I’m glad we ended up with the two that we have. Love them both.
Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is a medical engineer on her first Space Shuttle mission and is accompanied by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney), who is in command of the shuttle flight, due to be his last. Due to a spacewalk gone wrong, the two astronauts find themselves drifting alone in space after debris crashes into their space shuttle. Poor Canadarm never saw it come. The film follows them as they attempt to return to earth. Check out the intense Gravity teaser trailer below.
Today is the big day, with the 2013 Oscars taking place after all of the usual insane buildup. One of the awards you won’t see awarded at the Oscars will be for “Best Handjob,” which had many contenders this year. Seriously, I didn’t realize how many handjobs there were in some of the top films this year.
In this video by Funny Or Die, Sandra Bullock presents the nominees for “Best Hand Job in a Leading Role.” The nominees include Amy Adams (jerking off Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master), Laura Linney (jerking off Bill Murray in Hyde Park On Hudson), Kristen Stewart (jerking off two guys at once in On The Road), and Joaquin Phoenix in The Master (or shall we say … The Masterbater).
Watch the funny video below to see the naughty scenes and find out who wins. The best part is the reaction faces of the actors after their scene is played.
At long last, we finally have our first major awards show of what promises to be a lengthy season. The 2013 People’s Choice Awards were handed out last night and as always it was pretty easy to predict. If you saw someone in the audience, chances were they were solely there to pick up their trophy. Why else would they show up, right? The Golden Globes are just a few days away.
While The Hunger Games‘ Jennifer Lawrence, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift cleaned up with regards to hardware (click here for the full list of winners), each lady placed in different categories on my fashion round-up of the 2013 PCAs. Can you figure out which one landed on my Best Dressed, Worst Dressed and On The Fence list? Keep reading below to see if you figured out my fashion tastes, along with my respective picks in each category. Be sure to leave your comments at the end of the post for your choices for who rocked it out on the red carpet and who bombed. Fashion is highly subjective after all.
There used to be a time when Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler could do no wrong at the box office. No matter what vehicle they starred in, it would undoubtedly become a bona fide blockbuster. But as they say, nothing lasts forever. The two veteran comedy actors find themselves on a list that no Hollywood actor wants to be on. To quote one of Murphy’s movies, I’m sure he wants to be Trading Places with anyone else right now.
Also landing on the list are one-time rom-com queens Katherine Heigl and Sandra Bullock. All it takes is one box office bomb to bring down their dollar return average. Each lady had exactly that with One For The Money and All About Steve respectively. You can also add Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close to Bullock’s less-than-stellar grosses. Find out below who ranks No. 1 on the list with a return of $2.30 for every dollar they were paid.
I freaking love Melissa McCarthy! Back in September, the trailer debuted for a comedy she is starring in alongside Jason Bateman called Identity Theft where she plays a criminal and it looks effing funny. Now, yet another trailer for a comedy she is starring in alongside Sandra Bullock has debuted called The Heat and instead of playing criminals, the two funny ladies play an unlikely FBI duo.
In The Heat, Bullock plays uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn and McCarthy plays foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins. The two couldn’t be more incompatible, but when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.
The movie is helmed by Paul Feig, the director of Bridesmaids and it opens in theaters on April 5, 2013. Check out the HILARIOUS trailer below. It seriously made my day.
Oh. Em. Gee. Last night’s episode of Chelsea Lately was epic. This was the first new episode on their highly anticipated new set on the Universal Lot. The episode opened up with a shower scene with Chelsea Handler getting confronted and bitched out by none other than Sandra Bullock! Given that they were both in the shower, they were also both naked with their lady parts blurred out. Sandra spoke sternly to Chelsea about how she needs to get her sh*t together, not drink so much, and stop sleeping with her guests – she even slaps her in the face…twice! LOL.
In this episode, the panel is made up of Heather McDonald, Loni Love and Ross Mathews. They talk about Sarah Palin‘s questionable weight loss, the man who jumped from space, Lindsay Lohan endorsing Mitt Romney, Rihanna & Chris Brown and more.
When her good friend Jennifer Aniston came on as the special guest and Handler mentions her engagement to Justin Theroux, Aniston says, “I just got verklempt,” fighting back the tears. Handler added, “He’s the greatest guy ever and you guys make the greatest couple ever.”
Last year Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker shared the title of Highest Paid Hollywood Actress. Sadly for them, there’s a new queen in town. Don’t feel too badly for them. Both Jolie and Parker are still on the Top 10 list, just further down at No. 4 and No. 7 respectively.
This year’s Forbes’ Top 10 rankings is strikingly similar to last year’s. With exception to Reese Witherspoon and Katherine Heigl, the other eight ladies still remain on the top-earning list. Witherspoon and Heigl were bumped by Kristin Wiig and Charlize Theron. Speaking of the Evil Queen, is Theron the new Queen of Hollywood? Perhaps…
Well, one actress that isn’t is Cameron Diaz. The 39-year-old actress just missed out the top spot by $500,000. On the strength of “Bad Teacher” and “The Green Hornet”, Diaz earned a whopping $34 million. Continue reading to find out which actress narrowly beat her with a take of $34.5 million.
Now that you’ve read my 10 Best Dressed picks, check out the five ladies who would’ve been served better with a different stylist. None of them are completely heinous, but I had to pick five that I didn’t like and these quintet are the unlucky five.
As I mentioned in my “Best Dressed” post, out of all of the posts I personally write, the closest thing I ever get to people yelling at me is my Award fashion posts. Perhaps the following five choices will continue that trend.
Check out who I thought looked like a lampshade and whose polka-dots were polka-NOTS in my opinion. Hope you enjoy my fashion highlights below.
