And despite being in some super successful films, Leonardo DiCaprio has been waiting 20 years to win. He may do it this year for his role on "The Wolf of Wall Street."

jackie kennedy people magazine
Few were closer to Jacqueline Kennedy than her Secret Service Agent Clint Hill. For four years, in the White House and later in New York City, the straight-laced agent from Washburn, North Dakota, was her security detail – and her confidant. Hill accompanied President John F. Kennedy and the First Lady to Texas in November 1963. After the shots were fired in Dallas, Hill leaped onto the back of their limo, trying to protect them both.

Today, 50 years later, everyone has seen the images of a blood-splattered pink suit, a bright blur as the car sped off. But Hill, now 81, retains them as per...

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names
Many celebrities have changed their names before they hit it big, and for many reasons. Let's take a look at some of the biggest stars who didn't take their birth name to Hollywood.

Katy Hudson didn't want to be confused with Kate Hudson, so she took her mother's maiden name and became Katy Perry.

Oprah Winfrey's name is iconic, but it's not actually her real name. It's Orpha, after the biblical figure. However, so many people mispronounced her name while she was growing up that the mispronunciation stuck.

Our first film, since leaving the beach for the mountains, is 'Oblivion' directed by Joseph Kosinski, based on his unpublished graphic novel.   

This sci-fi visually spectacular action movie stars Tom Cruise as Jack Harper, a super pilot, super lover and all round 'super guy.'

Review: Eye Candy Only Thing That Saves 'Oblivion'

4/18/2013 3:02pm EDT
In the sci-fi world depth is as common as bread and butter when it comes to memorable storytelling.  Within the realm of futuristic surrealism lies limitless possibilities of twists and turns for a great writer to spin a yarn.  Unfortunately the way in over its head "Oblivion" takes the above sentiments too literally and turns out one of the busiest, yet dull, convoluted and all out copycat flicks I’ve seen since the days of Roger Corman. 

Jack Harper is a tech who is one of the last few humans on earth.  After an unsuccessful alien invasion over sixty years ago that destroyed the moon and...
