The Screen Actors Guild announced this year's nominees for the 2014 SAG Awards. The winners will be announced during a live telecast on TNT and TBS on Saturday, Jan. 18. The nominees are as follows...
If you happened to watch "Saturday Night Live" last weekend, you might have caught the show's spoof on the recent trend of African-American themed holiday films entitled "White Christmas." The skit featured Paul Rudd as a Caucasian version of Tyler Perry's signature Madea character as well as also poking fun at the box office smash "The Best Man Holiday." Conveniently, HitFix spoke to Perry, who was promoting "A Madea Christmas," less than 12 hours after the skit aired and asked him what his reaction was.
It's probably not fair to say Tom Hanks has experienced a comeback over the past year. He's always been here. His side job as a movie and TV producer has just stolen some of his free time over the past decade or so. 2013 is a watershed for Hanks, however, with acclaimed performances in two Oscar contenders, "Captain Phillips" and "Saving Mr. Banks," now on his resume. "Phillips" has already earned over $100 million domestic, "Banks" is expected to be a major holiday hit and he could earn Academy Award nominations for both films. So on second thought, maybe it's a pseudo comeback.
2014 Sundance Film Festival Premieres slate includes Michael Fassbender, Ryan Reynolds and 'The Raid 2'
The Sundance Institute announced its highly anticipated premieres slate for this year's 2014 Sundance Film Festival today and it features some returning filmmakers, more big stars, a highly anticipated sequel and a Nick Offerman one-man show.
What a week. We knew that the end of year honors from the nation's preeminent critics groups would send a ripple through the best picture race. We didn't know it would send a shockwave.
Adele won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for her iconic ballad "Skyfall" from last year's 007 blockbuster, but will Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" end her winning streak at the 56th Grammy Awards?
Yes, it's unlikely, isn't it? Adele is royalty. She rarely loses.
The Best Original Song Oscar race was effectively over after "Frozen's" massive box office take this past weekend. The film's critical acclaim and record Thanksgiving animated haul has put Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez's "Let it Go," sung by Tony Award winner Idina Menzel, in the driver's seat to win the coveted Academy Award. In fact, Menzel's version of the song is actually outselling the Demi Lovato cover version on iTunes at the moment.
As Amy Poehler succinctly noted last January, it's once again time for the Golden Globes. The one night a year where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television (we kid). Of course, that also means some of Hollywood's biggest names need to socialize with the dreaded Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) in order to get that Golden Globes boost. While the Globes mean little in terms of actual Oscar nominations or final wins, they have been a big help at the box office. And, when it all comes down to it, that's what really matters most in awards season: money.
The Sundance Institute announced the initial wave of narrative films and documentaries for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival today and it features one of the more star-studded competition lineups in the film's history.
We've reached a critical phase of the season, Oscar watchers. We're not talking about the shortened shopping season or families reuniting across the country for the holidays. No, Hollywood is heading into the high season. A time when we stop talking about who's going to get a nomination and who's going to actually win.
