Why Andy Serkis Really Could Get Nominated For Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Not enough praise can be given to Andy Serkis for his work in the Planet of the Apes movies. It's one thing for an actor to realistically become another human being, but Serkis' performances in both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes are truly one step beyond, as the audience really never imagines for a moment that they're not looking at a chimpanzee.

Apparently BatKid Didn't Appear At The Oscars And It Might Be Andrew Garfield's Fault
More details are starting to emerge about why the segment featuring Andrew Garfield and Batkid was cut from the Academy Awards, and if true, they paint a pretty ugly picture of Spider-Man. Apparently, the bit wasn’t cut for time or because it was awkward. It was cut because the actor stormed out of rehearsals and refused to be apart of it after producers told him he wasn’t allowed to write his own lines.

BatKid Was Bumped From The Oscars And His Family Wants To Know Why
“I don’t know if they ran out of time, of if there was something about the segment they didn’t like. It got pulled so quickly that we didn’t have a lot of insight into what was going on," said Natalie Scott. "We had gone all the way down there, and he went through the rehearsal and he had a fancy tux and was all ready for it.”

Two Oscar Voters Admit They Didn't Watch 12 Years A Slave, Voted For It Anyway
Personally, I think that’s disgusting. And I don’t want to put words in McQueen’s mouth, but I’m fairly confident he’d reject the votes of an Academy member who didn’t even bother to WATCH his film before casting a ballot.

The Simpsons, LEGO And More Spoof Ellen's Oscar Selfie
While many have decried The Simpsons for dated storylines hampered by the amount of time it takes between writing an episode and having it air, no one can say they were late to the game parodying the star-studded Oscar selfie that host Ellen DeGeneres took at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony - which will go down in short-attention-span history as the Tweet that temporarily broke Twitter.

Ellen Was The Oscar Host We Needed AND The One We Deserved
Hiring DeGeneres to host the show was a deliberate move back to “center,” and co-producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron received the show they hoped she’d deliver. It wasn’t edgy. It wasn’t controversial. But it worked.

Cate Blanchett Wins Best Actress Oscar At The Academy Awards
Rightly or wrongly, Blanchett has the reputation of being a little stiff. She’s considered an artist’s artist who isn’t necessarily accessible to the average person and may not be a whole lot of fun. Well, she did her best to blow that reputation out of the water this evening with a rousing, fun and weird speech that included the hashtag “#SuckItJulia”.

Alfonso Cuaron Is The Best Director Oscar Winner For Gravity
Gravity traveled through two administrations at Warner Bros., struggling to earn a greenlight as Cuaron pitched a $100 million thrill ride primarily through the eyes of one superstar. Originally that would be Angelina Jolie, with Robert Downey Jr. providing the support, but none of the parties involved expected a daunting technical process that basically involved the invention of entirely new technology.

Frozen's 'Let It Go' Takes The Best Song Oscar, Robert Lopez Becomes Latest EGOT Winner
Songwriter Robert Lopez achieved a huge career accomplishment this evening when he won the Academy Award for Best Song for his work on the Disney Animated tale Frozen, but in actuality that’s only a fraction of what is actually an even bigger accomplishment. With tonight’s win, Lopez has become only the 13th person in history to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony, also known as EGOTing.

For Your Consideration: Technically Speaking, Gravity Is The Year's Best Picture
Gravity, to me, is a masterful ride – a harrowing but gloriously rewarding film that has deeper layers resting beneath its popcorn-thriller exterior. This, at heart, is the story of a damaged and unsure woman fighting to find a reason to live again in the wake of a terrible loss. It is an emotional survival story, tucked inside of a physical survival story.

10 Times The Academy Got Best Picture Wrong!
I believe we can all agree that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is not a perfect institution, and that if they haven’t fixed the problems in 86 years of award giving, they probably aren’t going to start any time soon. But this isn’t just laughing and finger-pointing at what for many years was just a bunch of stodgy old folks whose interest in stereotypes often overwhelmed proper decision making. It’s giving them the finger, too

For Your Consideration: 12 Years A Slave's Historical Importance Doesn't Automatically Make It The Best Picture
When the viewer is only given time to sit with its main character and think about the things that are happening to him, that’s when it stops transcending the material and reminds us that this is a movie about slavery.
