From the first second of the first scene, this film had me hooked.  I knew I was in for an incredible ride, and that’s exactly what ‘American Hustle’, directed by David O. Russell (‘Silver Linings Playbook’) is… one fantastic cinematic ride.

The 39-year-old actress plays Sydney Prosser in the forthcoming film 'American Hustle' and is forced to share an on-screen kiss with Jennifer Lawrence, but she admits she doesn't mind because working with females creates a different vibe to working with men.

SAG Award Nominees Named: '12 Years A Slave' Tops Nods (Full List)

December 11th, 2013 11:14am EST
12 Years a Slave
Some people were surprised by The Butler’s presence here, but I don’t see any surprises from them. Movies like Gravity and Her (which are frontrunners for a Best Picture nomination) aren’t large cast films, and wouldn’t get the Ensemble nomination over The Butler. The big surprise is Dallas Buyers Club, which is a relatively small cast, and did manage an Ensemble nomination. That could go a long way in getting DBC to a Best Picture nomination. Also, Daniel Bruhl is back in the race with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rush.

Kudos to the SAG members for nominating James Gandolfini for E...

1) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire- 35M Weekend, 345M Total

This is a traditionally slow Box Office weekend, and that will definitely be true for everything that isn’t Hunger Games or Frozen. Everything else will struggle, but these two should keep chugging along at a decent pace.
