Captain Phillips
Not everyone or every movie can be nominated for an Academy Award, but that won't stop us from declared who was snubbed by the Academy this morning when the nominations were announced.

Inside Llewyn Davis: Many of today's snubs felt like it was the Academy saying, "give someone else a chance." After six Oscars and countless nominations, Joel and Ethan Coen were stricken from the record this awards season - other than cinematography and sound mixing nods. The film has an astonishing 94% on Rotten Tomatoes after over 200 critic reviews, but it did not receive one best picture nomination from...

Conor Oberst
Bright Eyes star Conor Oberst has revealed he auditioned for the lead role in The Coen Brothers' new movie Inside Llewyn Davis.

The folk frontman was hoping to land his first acting role in the film, which is loosely based on the memoir of struggling cult singer Dave Van Ronk, but, after watching the finished product, he is happy to have lost the job to Hollywood newcomer Oscar Isaac.

Sitting down for a chat with Isaac for Interview magazine, he said, "I know I told you this when we met, but I tried out for your role in Inside Llewyn Davis - and thank God for everyone that I didn't get it...

Box Office Predictions: 'Hobbit' Vs. 'Anchorman' Vs. 'American Hustle'

December 20th, 2013 10:11am EST
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
1) The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug- 35M Weekend, 126M Total

Even with an impending 50% drop, it looks as if The Hobbit is going to win the weekend, but Will Ferrell and company are putting up a big fight. Had Anchorman opened on Friday, the demand might have put it higher, but with a spread out 5 day weekend.

2) Anchorman 2- 30M Weekend, 45M Total

The hit comedy managed 8M on Wednesday, putting it on a fast track for a huge weekend, heading into an even bigger Christmas. The counter programming here is perfect, as it is really unlike everything else in the top 10. An Anchorman 3 seem...

Box Office Predictions: 'The Hobbit' Headed For #1

December 13th, 2013 1:30pm EST
The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
1) The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug- 78M Weekend, 78M Total

The general consensus was that the last Hobbit was not on par with the quality of the first Lord of the Rings trilogy. The first Hobbit opened to 86M, breaking a December record. The second should see a small-ish dip, due in part to the people who didn’t like the first enough to rush out and see the second. Plus, there’s a ton of competition.

2) A Madea Christmas- 24M Weekend, 24M Total

Good God. Tyler Perry and Madea are back for what some critics have called “the worst Tyler Perry movie ever.” (Roger Moore). However, that k...

Golden Globe 2014 Nomination Predictions

December 11th, 2013 8:30pm EST
Dallas Buyers Club
The Golden Globe nominations are tomorrow morning. The Globes tend to nominate big films and big actors. Case in point, the Globes nominated The Tourist. So, smaller actors in smaller films are likely to get lost. This is not the awards show for Fruitvale Station. That being said, there are always a few performances from new actors that can’t be ignored. Even though no one knows who she is, Lupita Nyong’o is still going to get a globe nomination. Here’s a brief overview of what I think will land where:

BEST DRAMA:
12 Years A Slave
Gravity
Captain Phillips
Saving Mr. Banks

The former punk star portrays the title character in the Coen Brothers' upcoming movie, about a struggling folk singer trying to make it in 1960s' New York, and his preparation for the acting job has come in handy for his own stage career.

He tells New York magazine, "For the movie, I had to learn this way of playing guitar called 'Travis picking', where your thumb is like the metronome, and you're playing the bass line and the melody...

Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban made sure no one had any doubts about their romance on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (19May13) as they kissed and cuddled for the cameras.

Kidman, who jetted to France for the festival last week (ends17May13) as her husband wrapped up his stint as a judge on the 12th season of American Idol, was as giddy as a lovestruck teenager when her usually scruffy man showed up in a tuxedo for the premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis.

After spending months as an Idol panelist, Urban is now letting his wife play the judge - she's working with Steven Spi...
