Shailene Woodley talks "Divergent."

What words of wisdom did Kate Winslet give to 'Divergent's' Shailene Woodley?

She won't forget those stunts anytime soon

It's going to be a very big year for Shailene Woodley.  The former "Secret Life of the American Teenager" and "Spectacular Now" star has two highly anticipated movies, both based on popular novels, on the way.  In June, she plays a cancer patient in the adaptation of John Green's tearjerker "The Fault in Our Stars," but in a little over a month she'll have the fate of a city on her shoulders in the dramatic adventure "Divergent."  Last week, before zip lining with co-star Theo James onto Jimmy Kimmel, Woodley sat down to chat about the role that might transform her into a major movie star.

Melissa McCarthy experiences 'Gangsta's Paradise' in new 'Tammy' teaser

You know who's happiest? Coolio's bank account

Do you know who is the most excited about the new teaser trailer for "Tammy"?  No, it's not the growing legion of Melissa McCarthy fans. No, it's not Warner Bros. who is hopeful they have a major mid-summer hit on their hands. It's Artis Leon Ivey Jr., better known as Coolio, because the former hip-hop artist just scored bank.

'Bad Grandpa's' Irving on the Oscars, Helen Mirren and finding tail

Plus: Best makeup nominee talks skin in sunlight

Even after $102 million at the box office and an Academy Award nomination for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, "Bad Grandpa's" Irving has just one thing on his mind: Yes, he still can't get enough tail.

Irving sat down with HitFix last week to talk about his neverending quest for tail, Billy's current status (let's just say he's under supervision), his affection for Helen Mirren and whether or not he has a ticket to the Oscars. It's an incredibly unconventional interview, but if you're a fan of "Bad Grandpa" you'll probably eat it up.

Guess who Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper missed at the Oscars luncheon?

Plus: Red carpet stylings and living the dream

BEVERLY HILLS - "American Hustle" was well-represented at the annual Oscars luncheon on Monday. Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Christian Bale and David O. Russell were all in attendance, but sadly, one nominated member of the crew was not. The wonderful Jennifer Lawrence was unavailable to attend (Adams thought it might be due to "Mockingjay" production commitments). Yep, sorry internet. No J-Law gifs or memes for you to explode over this time around. Still, Adams and Cooper were happy to share the spotlight when they popped by the press room for a quick Q&A with assembled media.

Sandra Bullock says she never thought she'd work with 'Gravity' director in a million years

Sandra Bullock says she never thought she'd work with 'Gravity' director in a million years

Plus: Why she thinks the movie moves people

BEVERLY HILLS — It's been a much different awards season for Sandra Bullock than when she won her first Oscar a little less than four years ago. She became the frontrunner after that year's Golden Globes and you could sort of tell the pressure got to her toward the end (not that she wasn't her always down-to-earth, affable self). This year, Cate Blanchett has been in the driver's seat for most of the season and if Bullock won it would be something of an upset. Still, the blockbuster star shows no signs of abandoning ship. There is a joy in how she lovingly and energetically discusses director Alfonso Cuarón and "Gravity," unarguably the best film she's ever starred in.

On Monday, she joined many of her fellow nominees at the annual Oscar luncheon. She didn't have to make a quick trip to the press room, but discussing "Gravity" has clearly never been a chore for Bullock. At one point she was asked about whether it was difficult to trust Cuarón on such a risky endeavor. Her response speaks volumes.

Was hooked on master filmmaker since 'Goodfellas'

BEVERLY HILLS — Jonah Hill loves Martin Scorsese. Not only did the master filmmaker guide him to his second Academy Award nomination for "The Wolf of Wall Street," but Hill was so eager to work with him he did it for scale. And considering "Wolf" had a budget of $100 million-plus, the actor might want to reconsider his representation.

Hill took a few minutes Monday during the annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon to speak to the press about his Best Supporting Actor honor and he showered Scorsese with love.

Class photo and more at the Oscars luncheon

Monday brought yet another Oscars nominee luncheon and, more importantly, a class photo of the nominees for the 86th Academy Awards. 

While a number of famous faces including Jennifer Lawrence, Judi Dench, Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor were unavailable to attend the soiree still attracted a who's who of Hollywood star power. Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Christian Bale, Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and more had fun talking to their idols and peers at the annual Beverly Hilton bash.  Oh, and some famous musical faces showed up too including this year's Grammy king Pharrell Williams and the one and only Bono.

Final voting for the 86th Academy Awards is just four days away, but Monday allowed this year's nominees one more stress-free event before it all gets "oh, so serious" again. For the public at large, the annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon is a celebration of the honorees as they all crowd into one room to take the "Class of" photo. It's also a huge press opportunity where the contenders can subtly communicate their final pitches in hopes that a stray Academy member will read it or hear about it on TV.

Review: 'Looking' - 'Looking for $200/hour' or 'Hey it's the Folsom Street Fair!'

But you'll see more of it on the SF evening news

After the show's co-creators did almost everything they could to make us dislike both Patrick (Jonathan Groff) and Kevin (Russell Tovey) in episode three, "Looking for $200/hour" takes a 180 degree turn and tries to find some chemistry between the two characters.

We begin with the duo spending Sunday in the office hard at work on a last minute presentation.  Eventually they take a break to actually catch up and learn something about each other. (And yes, I'm considering putting swinging chairs in the HitFix office. Fun!).  Shocker: Kevin's long distance relationship isn't as blissful as it might have initially seemed.  Will Patrick pounce on the opportunity?

Woody Allen speaks out and it appears he's had enough

Will this end anytime soon?

To say this awards season has not gone as expected is something of an understatement. No one could have anticipated that perhaps the closest best picture race this century would be overshadowed by twenty one year-old allegations surrounding Woody Allen and his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow.  After almost two decades of silence, a series of tweets during the Golden Globes from Mia Farrow, Dylan's adoptive mother, and her brother, Ronan Farrow, has snowballed into a dramatic series of statements that has once again dragged these unproven allegations into something of a public spectacle.
