Roger adored movies, though, and it showed.

And absolutely no one is surprised that Hollywood's biggest names are already showering the man who passed just hours ago with beautiful and well-deserved eulogies.

Jaws mastermind Steven Spielberg offered his heartfelt statement today.

Twelve years after the underwhelming third installment sent Jurassic Park to franchise purgatory, Universal is finally taking the first steps to move ahead with the next sequel!

The production company stiffened the movie boner in our dino-underoos today by announcing the director of Jurassic Park IV:

It's Colin Trevorrow!

OK, don't everyone rush off to IMDB at once!

Colin helmed Safety Not Guaranteed with Aubrey Plaza and it was one of 2012's BEST quirky rom-coms featuring a time-traveling boat!

While the up-and-coming filmmaker's resume isn't as big as, say, JP4 executive producer Steven Spielberg's dong, we're totes confident this project can be

Ang Lee Is Living The Life!! Wins Oscar For Best Director!!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSteven SpielbergOscars

We're still bummed that Ben Affleck got snubbed, but the award couldn't have gone to a more seasoned director!!

That's right, Ang Lee has won the Oscar for Best Director! Life of Pi represent!!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above)!!

Up against some SERIOUS talent, it was no easy fight! Also up for the award was Amour (Michael Haneke), Beasts of the Southern Wild (Benh Zeitlin), Lincoln (Steven Spielberg), and Silver Linings Playbook (David O. Russell) — which is about as amazeballs as you can get!!

We're so happy for Ang, though! Good work to everyone else too!!

It's too bad they don't have a Best Tiger award!! LOLz!!

Oscars Voting Ends Today! Who's In The Lead??

| Filed under: Ben AffleckAnne HathawaySteven SpielbergQuentin TarantinoOscarsJennifer Lawrence

We won't know for sure until the big day, but with Oscars voting ending in mere hours, betting gurus are picking their faves!

So who should you be backing in your office Oscar pool?

Best Picture seems like a lock for Argo, which has already taken just about every award possible!

For Best Actress, it looks like we'll get yet another misunderstood movie quote from the lovely Jennifer Lawrence!

You may want to bet a penny - or better yet a fiver - on Daniel Day-Lewis to win Best Actor for Lincoln!

Anne Hathaway's breathtaking - and hair-cropping - performance in Les Misérables is just about guaranteed gold at this point!

It looks like Ben Affleck's snub is Steven Spielberg's gain — he's the favorite for Best Director.

And once again, Quentin Tarantino is the frontrunner for Best Original Screenplay for his sleeper hit Django Unchained!

But, of course, as any oddsmaker will tell you, anything can happen on any given Sunday!

Except Any Given Sunday can't win anything. It's not nominated and is like, ten years old.

Ben Affleck Named OUTSTANDING DIRECTOR For Argo At The DGA Awards! Full List Of Winners HERE!

ben affleck dga awards

Well, we think it's safe to say that the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences must be kicking themselves right now!

And if they're not, they SHOULD be!

Because after being NOTICEABLY snubbed from the "Best Director" category of the upcoming Academy Awards for his truly magnificent work on Argo, Ben Affleck was named outstanding director for the flick at the 65th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards last night in El Lay, beating out Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty, Tom Hooper for Les Miserables, Ang Lee for Life of Pi and Steven Spielberg for Lincoln!

But what's most telling - at least to us - about the win is that it marks the THIRD time since the DGA Awards started in 1948 that its 15,000 members have voted in this category for a nominee that has been up for the Oscar!

Frankly, between this and the Golden Globe, we're just glad to see that he's being recognized for his outstanding work!

It's MORE than deserved, Ben!

And we think VERY telling of how the Academy might vote for your flick in the categories for which it HAS been nominated!

But only time will confirm that!

Check out the rest of the winners from last night's DGA Awards…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
