Yesterday we learned the still unconfirmed news that Scarlett Johansson is pregnant with her first child and, as you may recall, speculation began as to what ScarJo‘s pregnancy will mean for filming production of the planned superhero sequel film to The Avengers. As you may know, Scarlett plays Black Widow, a superhero that kicks all kinds of ass in a super tight-fitting body suit … and as such, she is unable to have any kind of baby bump in the film. According to new reports, Scarlett will be forced to film her scenes for the sequel to The Avengers as soon as possible, which means the production schedule of the entire film has to be fast-tracked to get in front of her pregnancy.

And the Oscar goes to ...
Earlier today we saw some photos from the red carpet arrivals from the 2014 Academy Awards last night but right now, let’s take another look at which movies and actors walked home with Oscars last night night. This morning I posted video of Lupita Nyong’o delivering her emotionally powerful acceptance speech when she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her work in 12 Years a Slave — so she was definitely my fave win of the night — but the gallery presented here features some of the other folks who won Oscars last night. I was very happy that Cate Blanchett won for Best Actress, Matthew McConaughey won for Best Actor and Jared Leto won for Best Supporting Actor … but other than Lupita‘s win, my favorite win of the night was 12 Years a Slave‘s win for Best Picture.

The ONLY Oscar that Mattered
Actress Lupita Nyong’o, who has become a personal favorite to a great many people the world over this awards season, was awarded the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Academy Awards last night. Altho I don’t have a personal stake in Oscar winners, I couldn’t help but hold very strong feelings about Lupita‘s nomination because from the first moment I saw her performance in 12 Years a Slave last year, I knew that she was the ONLY actor who 100% deserved to win an Academy Award this year. Yes, there are many other very deserving actors out there but Lupita, for me, was the only actor that mattered this year. I held my breath as her category was announced and I literally jumped out of my seat when she was announced as the winner. Click the video embedded above to watch Lupita Nyong’o deliver her acceptance speech at the Academy Awards last night (in case you missed it, her speech was utterly flawless) and then click below to see a few photos of a very happy Lupita posing with her Oscar last night.

In late January we got to see a batch of promo and character posters from the upcoming superhero sequel film Captain America: The Winter Solider after the first and second movie posters were released for the film last year. Today we get to see a newly released third movie poster for The Winter Soldier and as you can see below, it’s a poster that focuses more on Steve Rogers than the good Captain himself.

'Movie 43' and 'After Earth' are the Worst of the Worst
Each year, on the night before the Academy Awards are handed out, an awards ceremony is held in Hollywood that “honors” the worst films and actors of the year. As you may recall, the pre-nominations for the 2014 Golden Raspberry Awards were announced in January (because the Razzies are such serious business, they have to announce the pre-nominations before the actual nominations) and last night, the actual awards were given out to the worst of the worst in film. Movie 43 was named the Worst Picture of the year and also walked away with two other awards. After Earth, starring father and son duo Will and Jaden Smith, was also honored with 3 Razzie Awards. Read on to learn which other films and actors walked away with Golden Raspberry trophies last night. More »
The Movie Opens March 14
A year ago, Veronica Mars was just a memory of a much beloved but cancelled TV series. In 2 weeks, the first Veronica Mars feature film will be released in theaters. As you may recall, a call was put out last spring asking fans to help fund a possible VM movie via Kickstarter. The campaign raised the money needed (and more) in record time and BAM, the movie was filmed for release in just about a year. Today we get to see the first 2 minutes of the Veronica Mars movie, featured in the video embedded above. This first look at the film gives us a nice overview of the high points of Veronica Mars the TV series and serves as a nice reminder of what has come before. Check out this video and get excited Martians, Veronica Mars the movie opens in theaters in 14 days.

Is Adam the new Darth Vader?
Thus far, we’ve heard a lot of rumors about who might play what role in the upcoming new Star Wars film but today we learn THE MOST RIDICULOUS casting rumor yet … and I fear the rumor may turn out to be truth. According to Variety, Girls star Adam Driver is being considered as the main bad guy villain in Star Wars: Episode VII … which means he would basically be the Darth Vader of the film. If this report had come from In Touch or Us Weekly, I don’t think I’d be sweating the news as anything more than silly rumor … but when Variety says that Driver is close to signing on to play the new villain in Star Wars? Yeah, I’m effing CONCERNED! More »
