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

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!!

Ben Affleck Owns The Critics' Choice Awards As Best Director!

critics choice awards 2013 ben affleck best director winner

Ben Affleck might have been snubbed with the Oscars nominations, but he owned the Best Director category at the Critics' Choice Awards Thursday night!

For his excellent work with Argo, Jennifer Garner's main man got the coveted award, soothing any snubbing wounds from earlier.

Hope you enjoy it, Ben! And don't even worry about the Oscars… you're young! You've got plenty of projects ahead of you.

Tobey Maguire Booted From Life Of Pi!

Tobey Maguire Ang Lee Cut Life Of Pi

Poor Tobey Maguire — it looks like he won't be a part of Ang Lee's Life of Pi after all, as a writer who interviews the main character.

After joining the film last year, we were pumped to see the actor and director back together again. Unfortunately we won't get to see it happen.

What went wrong?

Tobey is just TOO famous!

Seriously! Plus, the cool thing is that Tobey is actually okay with it!

Here's what he said:

Ang Lee's Life Of Pi Will Premiere At NYFF

Filed under: Film Flickers

life of pi still

There's no better way to get guests to a party than with Pi!

At least, that's what they're hoping at the New York Film Festival, where Ang Lee's Life Of Pi will premiere September 28th.

The adaptation of the best-selling novel will open the festival, as did Lee's 1997 drama The Ice Storm.

This makes Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon director Lee only the fourth filmmaker to ever receive this honor more than once, which must mean that critics have finally forgiven him for 2003's HULK.

Life of Pi will also mark the first time a 3D movie has opened the festival. Those glasses probably look pretty silly with tuxedos.

So what makes this film so worth all the hubbub? Program Director Richard Peña says:

First Full Life Of Pi Trailer Makes Us Wish We Were Lost At Sea

Filed under: Film Flickers

We would never want to be lost at sea, but the first full trailer (above) for Ang Lee's adaption of Life of Pi makes it look pretty cool! As long as fish fly through the air, whales glow in the dark and the tiger we're sharing a lifeboat with is friendly, of course.

If you weren't impressed by the teaser that debuted in front of Prometheus last month, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised with this footage.

From the looks of it, the 3D will probably be pretty spectacular. In fact, it might actually be worth the price of admission for once.

Now if only Hollywood would do something about those annoying 3D glasses that continuously slide off of our faces. Can't this town create 3D contacts instead?
