BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The world's greatest filmmakers tell their stories from the very first frame in their movies to the very last. Need proof? Just watch the amazing supercut below, and you'll notice just how many brilliant films have beginnings and endings that work in stunning tandem.
We expect a little insanity when the MTV Movie Awards come out. But the following 10 nominees are some of the most head-scratchingly bizarre recognitions, for assorted reasons.
Birdman's celebrating his Best Picture win in the best way possible... kicking ass in your backyard!
On Sunday, the Oscars turned out to be a pretty good night for just about any and all things related to Birdman. However, for Michael Keaton, the night was not quite so bountiful on a personal level.
Stern was discussing the Oscar race with late-night talk show host Seth Meyers, and decided to unleash on Alejandro Inarritu’s industry comedy. But Stern didn’t just give the movie a thumbs down. He full-on threw Birdman completely under the bus!
No offense to Eddie Redmayne, but Michael Keaton deserved to win tonight's Best Actor trophy for Birdman. Find out why, after the jump.
Every year, the Oscars proves itself to be an extremely tricky affair. While many of the declared victors are ones that can be universally agreed upon – like J.K. Simmons taking home this year’s Best Supporting Actor prize for Whiplash - there are still other choices that left us scratching our heads.
If you thought watching Michael Keaton march through Times Square in his tighty whities in Birdman was entertaining then you will most certainly be able to appreciate this little gem featuring the host of the 87th Academy Awards. Watch as Neil Patrick Harris re-enacts the iconic scene from Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest masterpiece.
Birdman's final shot has become one of the most talked about scenes this year. Because of its cinematic beauty? —Maybe. Because of its stellar performances? —Somewhat. No, more so than anything, it is still coming up in discussion because we have no idea what the hell it means.
It’s hard to imagine a time before Emma Stone existed in film. But, before 2007, the actress had barely touched any segment of the entertainment industry. Now, the 26-year-old actress has shown off her chops in an array of genres, and is currently up for her first Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in the film, Birdman.
Birdman, Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance is the type of film that insults the state of the industry it inhabits, as well as the tastes of the audience that consumes it. Read on to find out why this qualifies the film for top honors, no questions asked!
This year's Best Picture Oscar race has been an incredibly tight one, with various frontrunners jumping ahead before receding back into the scrum over the last few months. Recently it looked like Richard Linklater's Boyhood was a lock, what with its big win at the Golden Globes, but now it seems the tide has changed.
Of all the films nominated for Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman has what can certainly be called the most ambiguous ending. But that wasn't always the case.
This year's list of films nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards is an eclectic one, featuring multiple sharp, powerful dramas, as well as a couple rather darkly funny comedies. But what if you were to splice a bit of adorable into that formula? Well, then you would get this brand new video bluntly titled "KIDS REENACT 2015 OSCAR NOMINEES."
While Michael Keaton has earned heaps of praise and an Academy Award nomination for his darkly dramatic turn in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, we will never forget that most of the star's career has been dedicated to work in comedy.
Richard Linklater’s 12-year-spanning Boyhood has been collecting numerous accolades as we have meandered through the lengthy Oscar race. But as we talked about in a recent episode of our Awards Blend, the game changes now that we are in Phase Two of the Oscar marathon.
For the past few years, the Producers Guild Awards have had a tremendously strong influence on the Academy Awards. In fact, the last seven PGA winners have wound up going on to take home the Best Picture prize at the Oscars. As a result, it’s certainly notable that Alejandro G. Inarritu’s Birdman took home the award at this year’s ceremony – but it’s also interesting to note that the other two major winners weren’t even nominated by the Academy.
Just about everyone is either “surprised,” “shocked,” “delighted” or “thrilled.” Too few actors actually drop F-bomb in their statements, however, which makes Emma Stone’s forwarded statement the best we’ve read in years… if not ever.
Phase Two of the marathon is all about maintaining momentum if you are the leader, and introducing doubt if you are a neighboring competitor. Do you think any film can slow Boyhood’s roll between now and February 22?
Are these five DGA nominees locks for Oscar? Not exactly. There have been exceptions over the years, where one or two DGA nominees didn’t carry over to Oscar’s ballot.
