First Look: Eddie Redmayne In His New Role As Transgender Artist
It's been a pretty good week for Eddie Redmayne, who is still riding high after taking home the Oscar for Best Actor at last Sunday's Academy Awards. Redmayne took home the honors for his potrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, which was produced by studio Working Title.

The Real Reasons Why Eddie Redmayne Won An Oscar For Best Actor

The Real Reasons Why Eddie Redmayne Won An Oscar For Best Actor
Eddie Redmayne seemed to walk away with the 2015 Oscar for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his stellar performance as Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything."

Still, Redmayne was up against some stiff competition in Michael Keaton ("Birdman"), Steve Carell ("Foxcatcher"), Bradley Cooper ("American Sniper") and Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game"). So what were the key reasons why he won?

He Played A Real Person, Not A Character

The 8 Biggest Snubs And Craziest Surprises Of The 2015 Oscars

The 8 Biggest Snubs And Craziest Surprises Of The 2015 Oscars
2015 was not the year for Oscar drama.

There were no underdogs that came out of nowhere for the unexpected win. There were no obvious favorites that lost to a weird backwards choice (and thus, very few vegetable platters hurled at the TV in blind fury).

Instead, this year was all about "which frontrunner's gonna win it?"- categories where the winner was down to one or two (or three, sometimes) favorites, and one of those favorites inevitably took home a small, nude, gold man.

But there was still snubs and there were still surprises, and we're still going to catalogue them for you. Like w...

The 87th Annual Academy Awards have come and gone, but some of the most intriguing things happened behind the scenes. Here are a few things seen and heard from backstage in the press room.

1. Hot Microphones: Before the show began, the ABC red carpet show was playing on the press-room monitors. They forgot to turn off Lara Spencer’s microphone, so the media got an earful as the entertainment correspondent reprimanded her crew for not giving her a long enough countdown to commercial break.

Eddie Redmayne
Eddie Redmayne and Kevin Costner were both guests on Jimmy Kimmel's talk show Tuesday night, and both stars had stories to tell about famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.

Redmayne, who is nominated for an Oscar for portraying the British scientist, shared his story of meeting Hawking, 73, who suffers from a form of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and speaks through a computer.

Redmayne explained that his first meeting with Hawking left him wondering what the scientist was thinking because his iconic computer voice lacks the intonations that poeple use when they speak.

Kate Middleton, known more formally as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is the best dressed woman in the world, according to Vanity Fair.

Magazine editors recently compiled their annual list of male and female trendsetters, and Prince William's wife unsurprisingly made the number-one spot.

Even before she made waves in her wedding gown in the spring of 2011, she was already on many people's list of fashion mavens.

Kate makes sophistication look sexy. And she's even gotten away with wearing pantyhose (which is so '90s.)

In movies, E.T., Tootsie and Gandhi ruled the box office while Chariots of Fire took best picture at the Academy Awards that year. Also taking home Oscar gold for best actor and actress in 1982 respectively were Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda for On Golden Pond.

The scene was set on a hot summer's day, but it was shot during the English winter and concerns the stars had about being naked in the water quickly disappeared when they realized just how cold the icy lake was.

Redmayne tells WENN, "It's meant to be a bucolic summer's day in England but it was actually shot in late November and although the sky is...

Two Jews' Review 'My Week With Marilyn' And See Oscar Nod For Michelle Williams (Video)

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: When the film 'My Week With Marilyn' directed by Simon Curtis, begins we see Marilyn Monroe on a stage singing 'That Ole Black Magic'... That's who I thought it was, anyway.

It actually took me a few seconds before realizing that I was watching not Monroe, but Michelle Williams. That's how good she is in her portrayal of the damaged, insecure, extremely sensual, extremely vulnerable Hollywood icon/sex symbol known as Marilyn Monroe. Or to put it simply, Michelle William's performance blew me away.

And the rest of the film is pretty wonderful a...

Friday I caught Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese's latest collaboration "Shutter Island." I was not blown away by it, but I did not think it was a terrible movie either. Since I have not read the novel on which it is based, I'm at a bit of a disadvantage to comment on whether it was a faithful adaptation; however as a thriller it kept me guessing for most of the film.

It does a good job of planting the seeds of doubt and conspiracy with you, as you start to piece together a series of bizarre dreams DiCaprio's character experiences. The most annoying aspect of the movie I thought ...
