Hugo
Director Martin Scorsese has successfully managed to score the canine star of his movie Hugo a nomination for a Golden Collar Award.

The filmmaker was disappointed to learn Blackie the Doberman had failed to secure a nod for "Best Dog In A Theatrical Film" at the annual prizegiving, which recognizes the most talented pooches in Hollywood.

Scorsese wrote an open letter to the Los Angeles Times complaining about Blackie's snub, insisting his furry friend was just as deserving for a nomination as Uggie the Jack Russell, who has been recognized twice for his work in "The Artist" and "Water fo...

Martin Scorsese has launched a campaign to land the canine star of his movie Hugo a Golden Collar Award nomination.

The legendary director was upset after Blackie the Doberman failed to secure a nod for Best Dog In A Theatrical Film at the annual prize giving, which recognizes the most talented pooches in Hollywood.

He wrote a letter to the Los Angeles Times to complain about Blackie's snub, and pointed out that Uggie the Jack Russell scored two nominations for The Artist and Water for Elephants.

Scorsese ranted, "How could she not be nominated? Jack Russell terriers are small and cut...

Quentin Tarantino Reveals His Best And Worst Of 2011

Quentin Tarantino
The highly acclaimed Reservoir Dogs director, Quentin Tarantino, recently released a list of his Top 11 favorite movies of 2011, via The Quentin Tarantino Archives. The list is extremely varied, including a bunch of both mainstream and indie films. Although, some entries are quite unexpected, for example, The Three Musketeers was Tarantino’s 11th favorite movie. The number 1 spot was awarded to Woody Allen’s charming, Midnight in Paris, a complete opposite film compared to that of his favorite in 2010, a la, Toy Story 3.

Alas, with the good, always comes the bad and so Tarantino has also i...

Fashion Fails Of The Week: Lump Of Coal Edition

December 19th, 2011 12:00pm EST
Charlize Theron
We spend so much time admiring the stars who wear their best fashion when out and about, it's only fair to point out those who failed. This time of year, that means they're getting a lump of coal in their fashion stocking!

Charlize Theron appeared at the premiere of Young Adult in this black and white Stella McCartney dress. It starts off okay as a black one-shoulder dress, but it gets progressively confusing as it goes on. Mesh to black, then swirling into a white bottom with bad hem job? We don't get it.

We love Katy Perry's hair, but the pink and black outfit she wore to the launch o...

Review: 'Young Adult' Is Immature

December 9th, 2011 11:21am EST
Poster
I have a superstition that a studio's confidence in a film can often be determined by length of the movie's Wikipedia page. Young Adult's Wikipedia is about 800 words long if you subtract links and other website jibba jabba. The recent Muppets has about 5000 words. The reason for invoking this completely unscientific ponderment of mine is because I'm a big fan of Director Jason Reitman, so this short wiki, not a week out from the release, was a bit odd to me.

And now I know why. “Young Adult” is shallow and awful, and, ha ha, has all the depth of a young adult novel about vampires. Except ...
