What We Were All Thinking - The Full Starpulse Oscars Recap

March 8th, 2010 1:50am EST
Oscar Feature
Tonight's Oscar ceremony is probably the most re-designed ceremony in Academy history.

Just look at all the changes. 10 Best Picture nominees, two hosts, no Best Song performances, more dance, a supposed streamlined show, and, weirdest of all, a request for no "thank yous" during the acceptance speeches.

Plus, a few of last year's tweaks will remain. They're sticking with the abhorrent practice of having five actors come out and sing the praises of the year's present crop of nominees (at least only in the Leading categories this year), and the producers are insistent on further expandin...

Christoph Waltz Dances Off With First Oscar

March 7th, 2010 9:28pm EST
Christoph Waltz
Austrian actor Christoph Waltz got the 82nd Academy Awards off to a great start by picking up the event's first prize.

The heavy-favorite "Inglourious Basterds" star claimed the Best Supporting Actor honor, calling his award "uber bingo".

The big night opened with a special treat when all 10 lead actors and actresses nominated appeared on-stage at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

As the hopefuls took their seats, Neil Patrick Harris took the stage to lead a glitzy song-and-dance number. The actor previously dismissed reports he would be part of an Oscars opening performance.

They Said It - Oscar Quotes

March 7th, 2010 9:23pm EST
James Cameron
"We made three times what we thought the movie could make. Three seems to be the number because everybody keeps coming up to me and saying, 'I saw the movie three times'." Three is lucky for "Avatar" director James Cameron.

"It is a life-changing film and it changed my life. So this is appreciated but the win is when someone says, 'My life is different because of the film.' That's priceless." Oscar contender Mo'Nique on being nominated for her role in "Precious".

"I'd like a nice juicy burger and some deep, deeply fried fries... and maybe a milkshake." Sandra Bullock has fast food plans...

2010 Oscars Predictions: Who Will Win & Who Should Win

March 5th, 2010 10:27am EST
2010 Oscars Predictions: Who Will Win & Who Should Win
This has the chance to become the most exciting Oscar night ever.

Why? Because nobody seems to have any real clue as to which movie will win Best Picture. “Avatar” seems like a good choice – it made $700 Million, changed movies, James Cameron directs, yada yada yada – but so does “The Hurt Locker” with its crazy critical raves and industry buzz. Compounding the problem is the Weinstein-backed “Inglorious Basterds” which has been gaining momentum all month. It’s a logjam at the top.

This is created not only by the fact that we have ten Best Picture nominees this year, but because the n...

'The Hurt Locker' Wins Big At BAFTAs; Kristen Stewart Wins Popularity Prize

The war thriller also won prizes for original screenplay, cinematography, editing, and sound during the ceremony at London's Royal Opera House.

Accepting her award for Best Director, Bigelow said, "What an honor, especially to be in this room filled with so many incredibly talented people that I've admired and been inspired by for decades."

82nd Oscar Nomination Reaction: The Snubs, Surprises & Who Shouldn't Have Been Nominated

February 2nd, 2010 3:34pm EST
82nd Oscar Surprises, Snubs & Who Shouldn
And there were ten.

It seems kind of strange to say that, right? Ten Best Picture nominees? We knew it was coming for nearly a year, but now it's actually there. In Black and white. Ten nominees. Strange.

After seeing the list, it's easy to see that the Academy might be on to something. Sure, it would have gotten the biggest blockbuster of all time with "Avatar" earning a Best Picture nomination if there were only five nominees, but it would have missed out on other massive hits like "The Blind Side", "Up", and "District 9".

Now, the telecast is going to get a lot more casual...

2010 Oscar Nominees In Photos

Penelope Cruz
Avatar & The Hurt Locker dominated the Academy Award nominations this morning, and we're sure there were plenty of actors who jumped up and down when they received their nominations.

The only thing that looks better on a resume than an Academy Award nomination is the award itself! Sure, a Golden Globe Award is nice, and a Screen Actors Guild award is commendable, but it's not the same as having your very own Oscar.

Check our our gallery of best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, and best supporting actress nominees:

Golden Globes Recap
The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Ricky Gervais, were held last night at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. A little rain didn't stop the party and the stars walked the red carpet

Silver, purple, gray and glittery dresses dominated the carpet as the stars filtered into the awards. Lead Actress nominee Sandra Bullock looked amazing in a sheer pur...

December 14th, 2009 7:30pm EST
Inglourious Basterds
Cinematic icon and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino helms one of the most audaciously inventive, eagerly-anticipated films of the year, "Inglourious Basterds", coming to Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD on December 15, 2009 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

From its deceptively bucolic opening scenes to its incendiary final moments, "Inglourious Basterds" delivers a h...

25 Top Movies Of 2009 (So Far)

November 26th, 2009 9:44am EST
2009
As with every year there are dozens of great movies but there are even more really bad ones. 2009 will be marked by Quentin Tarantino and Sacha Baron Cohen comebacks along with a bevy of bad movies, highlighted by Megan Fox's performance in Jennifer's Body. There were plenty of good movies and we may have the most fun making fun of the bad and helpless ones, but let's take a look at the best movies of 2009.

Most blockbuster movies are filled with overrated stars (i.e. Will Smith and Tom Cruise) and are seemingly contrived, made only to make money. Thankfully this year there were not as ...

Summer Movie Awards Part 2: Best Film, Worst Title & More

The summer movie season is finally at its end. Yesterday we listed Part 1 of the first annual "Summer Movie Awards" in categories such as: surprise hit, the bomb nobody noticed, indie hit, and most disappointing. Check out more films that deserve to be recognized for their summer performances:

The Death by Twitter Award

Winner: "Bruno"

This movie made more than 20 percent of its gross in the first night. After that evening, the Twiterrati hit their little squawk box to spread the word that there was far too much spreading of limbs in this bit of borderline pornography. The resul...

The Oscar Season Begins In August With Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds'

August 28th, 2009 11:02am EDT
Inglourious Basterds
The year in movies is always split into two different seasons. First, there's the endless malaise of the Winter, Spring and Summer where we suffer with movies intent on doing nothing more than making money. The second season is much more fruitful, it's when movies care about making money and winning awards.

This moment the season changes is often hard to pinpoint. Normally it occurs in late October when every single movie seems to have a minor-key melody scoring its trailer and actors from Britain make their first appearances.

Sometimes, however, awards season comes in with a ban...

'Inglourious Basterds' Could Be Tarantino's Best Film

August 23rd, 2009 9:27am EDT
Inglorious Basterds
There are a few things you need to know before going to Inglorious Basterds (rated R, now in theaters). First, it is an alternate history of the ending of Nazi Germany and World War II, so do not expect it to do anything that you've read about in the history books. Second, it is a Quentin Tarantino film down to every last second: dialogue heavy, tongue-in-cheek, full of black humor, viciously violent, and a stream of loving tributes to particular movies or cinema styles that Tarantino loves. Third, this is not really an action flick, despite what the trailers might tell you. There are actio...

Trailer Talk: 'Inglourious Basterds,' 'Post Grad' & More

August 17th, 2009 10:23am EDT
Inglourious Basterds
This weekend "500 Days of Summer" became my favorite movie of the season. The film's non-linear style of romantic storytelling works incredibly well. Jumping back and forth through various days in Tom and Summer's relationship is a fascinating way to get to know the couple.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Tom with an awkward charm that other lovesick fools can identify with. Much like a typical heartbroken lover, Tom finds himself bogged down remembering the positive parts of his relationship but forgetting the trials and tribulations.

While the film is not a typical love story filled w...
