When Trent Reznor Met Christian Bale

Oscar Bros

Awards shows tend to make for strange bedfellows … celebs that you’d never imagine hanging out together get thrown into the same room and are, well, kinda forced to hang out together. At the 83rd annual Academy Awards last weekend, Oscar winners Trent Reznor (Best Original Score) and Christian Bale (Best Supporting Actor) were spotted chatting together in a backstage, VIP area. I’m not sure what the full context of the photo is but the accompanying commentary on the Tumblr from whence this photo comes is all kinds of awesome. More »

Watch: James Franco & Anne Hathaway In An Unused Oscar Parody Of ‘Grease’

"You Better Shape Up, Cuz It's Time to Host"

Remember that weird, soundless, dreamy video that James Franco posted on his Twitter profile that seemed to show him and Anne Hathaway in a parody of Grease? Well, if you watched the Academy Awards telecast on Sunday night you did NOT see that skit in the opening of the show. But, right now we get to see the parody in full … and based on the lyrics alone, I can see why it was cut from the Oscars telecast. More »

The 2011 Academy Awards Have Been Handed Out

'The King's Speech' & 'Inception' Win 4 Oscars, 'The Social Network' Take 3

And so … the 83rd annual Academy Awards have been handed out, bringing to a close another long awards season. Despite efforts to make the Oscars telecast a “young and hip” affair, this year’s show — IMHO — ended up feeling “old and boring” as usual. BUT, there were some very well-deserved awards handed out last night, tho not many surprises. The biggest award went to The King’s Speech, a British film that ended up with 4 Oscars in total. Inception, which really hasn’t won any major awards all awards season long, tied The King’s Speech with 4 Oscars. The Social Network, once considered a front-runner for Best Picture, ended up with only 3 awards — but one of those Oscars went to my boy Trent Reznor and his collaborator Atticus Ross for Best Original Score. For me, this was an Oscars to remember … but only for Reznor‘s win and not much else. More »

The 2011 Film Independent’s Spirit Awards Are Handed Out

'Black Swan' Wins Big!

The Golden Raspberry Awards, which honor the worst of the worst in film, are not the only awards that are handed out on the eve before the Academy Awards are handed out … the annual Film Independent Spirit Awards are also handed out on the night before the Oscars. The Independent Spirit Awards are given out in a much more relaxed ceremony than the Oscars and honor the best in independent film making. This year, the Darren Aronofsky-directed film Black Swan walked away with the most awards … 4 in total. But other of this awards season’s “usual suspects” were also honored last night. More »

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards Are About To Be Handed Out

This Year's Oscars Aims for A Younger Audience

We are just hours away from the 83rd annual Academy Awards — THE biggest awards show of the year — and the last minute touches are being handled right now as the clock ticks down to show time. This year, the Oscars are really hoping to attract a much younger audience as opposed to merely the traditional, older set. This became very obvious when they decided to get Anne Hathaway and James Franco to host. This year’s show promises lots of fun new stuff … but will it work? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
