Each year during Oscars Week, The Academy holds several symposiums highlighting the achievements of the nominees in categories like Foreign Language, Animated Feature, and Documentary Feature/Short.

83rd Annual Academy Awards Nominations
I was lucky enough to be inside the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre this morning while the 83rd Annual Academy Award Nominations were announced. Here is a timeline and some insider information on how the morning played out:

2 AM : Time to wake up and get ready for the announcements. Since the nominations are coordinated with morning shows on the East Coast, I knew I would have to try and get some sleep before I had to be up in the middle of the night. My bed time? 5:37 PM. Just enough beauty sleep for this 2 AM wake up call.

3:30 AM: My official call time over at the Academy's headquarters i...

31 Days Of Horror Weekend Round-Up #4: 'Nosferatu The Vampyre,' 'The Wolfman,' 'Survival Of The Dead'

October 25th, 2010 11:33pm EDT
Nosferatu the Vampyr
Oct 22 – Nosferatu The Vampyre (1979): In the hands of any other director, a sexed up remake of the silent classic Nosferatu would probably end up being the kind of groan-inducing hack-work we’ve come to expect from Hollywood. Complete with an A-list celebrity donning the ookie Dracula make-up and ripping out the throat of some up-and-coming young talent—Oh right, like what Francis Ford Coppola did in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Almost forgot about that one. But in the hands of a mad genius director like Werner Herzog, what we get instead is a sexed up version of Nosferatu that’s also a spellbin...

Can 'The Wolfman' Live Up To These Werewolf Movies?

February 12th, 2010 1:11pm EST
The Wolfman
The Wolfman, inspired by the classic Universal film, premieres in theaters today. It continues the tradition of films based on lycanthropy since Werewolf of London in 1935. There has been a plethora of werewolf films since, and here are some particularly memorable ones.

Dog Soldiers: Like 28 Days Later, Dog Soldiers was a gritty horror movie from overseas that helped resurrect the genre for another decade. Dog Soldiers also helped boost its director's career - Neil Marshall has since directed horror films The Descent and Doomsday. 28 Days Later's director, Danny Boyle, has since helmed h...

Anthony Hopkins Finds Theater Work 'Boring'

February 11th, 2010 8:30pm EST
Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins won't be returning to the stage anytime soon because he finds theatre work "boring". The "The Wolfman" star got his big break as a thespian in London, working with British acting greats - but he has no wish to tread the boards ever again.

He tells Parade.com, "It's boring to do the same role night after night in a theater. I think it was Judy Dench who said the best thing about doing a play is getting the phone call from the director: 'They want you!' So you go on stage and think, 'This is it!' Then the reviews come in and, if they're decent, you go, 'God, I've got nine m...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Wolfman,' 'Valentine's Day,'

February 8th, 2010 10:15am EST
The Wolfman
Pierre Morel's film from last week "From Paris With Love," isn't awesomely bad, but instead it's just plain bad. As an action movie, it's visually entertaining because it engrosses you in the fight scenes and shootouts

, while maintaining solid pacing. These elements are completely overshadowed however by the horrendously written dialogue and plot.

The story doesn't introduce any specific elements to engage the audience or fully explain the terrorist plan the protagonists are hoping to thwart. In some instances the dialogue is so ludicrous that you find yourself audibly laughing at ...

Anthony Hopkins Almost Left 'The Wolfman' Over Facial Hair

February 7th, 2010 11:00am EST
Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins almost resigned from The Wolfman after movie bosses ordered him to shave off his beard.

The actor decided to grow out his facial hair to play Sir John Talbot, the father of the title character played by Benicio del Toro, but Universal executives wanted him clean-shaven for the film.

The 72 year old then threatened to walk off set, prompting producers to give in to his demand.

He says, "They wanted me to shave it off because studio policy is not to have facial hair, which is crazy when you're doing a film in 19th-century England about a wolfman.

"I said, 'Well...
