Every year, when the Oscar nominations are announced, a considerable amount of time is spent debating who was snubbed. But for every film that was expecting to get nominated and didn't, there's a film that no one was expecting to get nominated and did. This is the story of those films. The movies you'll look back on and wonder exactly how the heck it ever got nominated for an Oscar.
While there were a lot of tight races at the 2014 Oscars, Best Actor wasn't one of them. Matthew McConaughey, the odds-on favorite and Golden Globe winner, won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in 'Dallas Buyers Club' and that's alright, alight, alright with us.
Best Actress at the 2014 Oscars went to Cate Blanchett for her role in 'Blue Jasmine' - a win many saw coming as the actress pretty much swept all the awards leading up to this point. But, whether you saw it coming or not, it was a win that was very much deserved.
It was the headline that sent the fanboy world abuzz: Vin Diesel has mysterious meetings with Marvel to discuss an upcoming movie. The word was leaked by Diesel himself on his popular Facebook page, but with precious few details. At the time, all we could do was wildly speculate. Was it Vision? Luke Cage? Thanos?! It turns out it was nothing. Vin Diesel never had a meeting with Marvel; he was just f---ing around on social media, trying to get a rise out of comic book fans.
The rumor goes that over the weekend, Amazon UK accidentally printed the tracklisting for the 'Captain America 2' soundtrack, which revealed some major, major spoilers. Realizing their error, the listing was quickly removed from their site, but not before some enterprising fanboys were able to copy and paste the information on to various message boards. But, is any of it true? Did the 'Captain America 2' soundtrack reveal a massive 'Captain America 2'?
'Star Wars: Episode 7' is scheduled to begin filming in May (just about two-and-a-half months from now), so you'd think casting announcements are imminent. So far, we've heard precious little information about who will actually be starring in the new 'Star Wars' films (aside from Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and others from the original trilogy), but is that about to change? The latest rumor has it that the star of one of this year's biggest movies - 'Transformers 4' - will be the star of one of next year's biggest movies, 'Star Wars: Episode 7'.
Last night, Jimmy Fallon officially ushered in a new era of 'The Tonight Show' and, besides a move to New York City, already made the show his own. Can you imagine Jay Leno ever doing The Humpty Dance in a "The Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing"?
When previously asked about the lack of female superhero movies, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has remained diplomatic, yet non-committal. During the press tour for 'Thor 2,' Feige's comments were "I'm not sure when that will be" and "we'll see what happens." Not exactly a ringing endorsement for a female-led Marvel movie. Apparently, things have changed over the past few months and now Feige, when asked specifically about Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, said that they are actively developing her own solo movie.
'Avengers 2', one of the biggest films hitting theaters over the next few years, has officially begun filming today in Johannesburg, South Africa, where it will spend the next two weeks. While many have speculated that this could mean the addition of African hero, Black Panther, we've got some details on exactly what director Joss Whedon is shooting this month.
'The Hateful Eight' may be the Quentin Tarantino movie that never was. The writer/director, upset about the script leaking online, decided to put a stop to the upcoming western before it ever really began. While we may never actually see the movie, the script is online and now another big piece of the movie is here to help you imagine a Tarantino movie in your head: the soundtrack.
