If there is one person who looked Hollywood dead in the eye without flinching, it was Roger Ebert!

There isn't a man, woman, or child in the film industry who was immune to a thumbs down when it was warranted!!

Roger adored movies, though, and it showed.

His enduring passion and elegant honesty earned him the respect of colleagues and filmmakers alike — even those he occasionally skewered in a bad review!!

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.

Reese Witherspoon Brings The Bump To Chicago

an-evening-with-reese-witherspoon-chicago.jpg

Reese Witherspoon looks like she's about to pop any minute now!

That didn't stop the actress from coming out to Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center to receive the Renaissance Award for an "An Evening with Reese Witherspoon."

Reese looked great revealing her baby bump in a navy Vanessa Bruno dress, which accented her blonde hair and pretty blue eyes.

Earlier in the night, she exclaimed that she felt "very round" and was "excited" about the birth of her third child.

We're just impressed she can pull off wearing heels with that bumpily bump. It does make a great accessory though!

24-Year-Old Blogger Lands Hosting Gig On Roger Ebert's At The Movies!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersMedia Minute

24 year old blogger gets hosting gig on ebert show

Hooray for blogging!

At only 24 years old, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky has landed a co-hosting position on Roger Ebert's show Ebert Presents At the Movies.

Here's what he had to say about the honor:

"You have to be the best you that you can possibly be. There is a legacy here. But the best way to honor that legacy is not to be Roger Ebert or Gene Siskel.

I know it's a big deal, but when someone gives you this type of opportunity it makes you want to work a lot harder."

And here's Vishnevetsky on comparisons people are making between him and Gene Siskel:

"Everyone has been characterizing me as this cold analytical egghead guy, but I'm a man of extreme passion. I lean more towards Ebert who I liked more as a critic."

SO exciting to see a Blogger getting such a prestigious hosting gig…and at SUCH a young age!

Congratulations, Ignatiy! We wish U the absolute best of luck!
