After picking up five Oscar nominations at the end of last week (including Best Picture), Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty expanded to more theaters … and immediately won the box office crown.
Movies often receive an Oscar 'bump," or an increase in tickets sold when they receive a number of Academy Award nominations. Silver Linings Playbook, for example, saw a huge boost on Thursday. We're curious: Does an Oscar nomination influence what films you plan to see in a theater?
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences revealed 21 animated features that will be eligible for nomination in the Animated Feature Film category for the 85th Academy Awards. Which films do you think will be nominated and which one is the odds on favorite to win?
The Academy Awards could be looking at Jimmy Fallon as the next host of the annual Oscars telecast. ABC might not want him. But what do you think?
I was lucky enough to attend the Academy Awards Nominations announcement live from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences building very early this morning and I wanted to give you a special backstage look at what happens there.
There’s nothing like sitting backstage, anxiously waiting for this year’s winners—especially when none disappointed when it came to juicy answers. While many have been complaining that the Oscars were a complete bore, those of us backstage don’t share that sentiment because we got lots of controversial...
We’re comfortably settling in to 2011 and putting 2010 behind us, but with the Oscar ceremony approaching (watch it live on ABC this February 27th) now might be a good time to refresh your memory of which films were the best of 2010, and what it is about them that made us fall head over heels in the first place. Check out this mash-up and let us know if they left out any great films!
The nominations are out, and we finally have the list of ten films competing for Best Picture of the year. Sure, you have your obvious frontrunners in The Social Network, The King’s Speech and Black Swan, but there are seven other great films right alongside those three hoping that maybe this will be their year.
What was it actually like live at the Oscar noms? Here’s a quick behind-the-scenes look at the early morning event to announce this year’s Academy Award nominations…
After months of award speculation, the nominations for the 2011 Academy Awards were just handed out and it’s lined up pretty much as we expected. Right in the thick of things are films like The King’s Speech (which led everyone with 12 nominations, including best picture, director, original screenplay and actor) with The Social Network, and Black Swan, while a familiar crop...
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has decided to return to the two-host format for next year's Academy Awards (which will reward the films from this year even though it's technically airing on television next year) by announcing that James Franco and Anne Hathaway will lead the next Oscar ceremony, due to hit ABC on February 27th, 2011.
For several years now we’ve gotten used to the fact that the Academy Awards falls on a Sunday night. It’s given us an opportunity to plan lavish parties, complete with Oscar scorecards and your aunt’s favorite chips and dip recipe. The last time the Oscars were held during the week was back in 1999, when they took place on Monday night...
It's another year, which means the Academy Awards must figure out a way to make themselves stand out yet again as Hollywood's premiere awards ceremony and a must-see television event. According to Deadline, one of the things they're considering is moving up the awards ceremony to January. It'd be a bold move...
We can probably go back and forth for hours when it comes to who deserved that Best Picture Oscar more, Avatar or The Hurt Locker, but when you get past the obvious frontrunners from last night's Academy Awards ceremony, there were a lot of films that should've totally taken home...
Let's face it: The best part of the Oscars usually has something to do with all those great, unexpected, emotional acceptance speeches – and while the Academy attempted to cut down the "thank yous" on stage by asking nominees to stick more to what the award meant to them, most...
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
