Even though the Oscars aren't until next year, a few actors are already getting buzz for their roles in upcoming films!
One of those actors is Jake Gyllenhaal in the boxing drama Southpaw. The 34-year-old plays Billy Hope, reigning Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion whose success in the ring comes from his intense anger issues.

But when tragedy strikes the champion and sends his whole world crashing down, he hits rock bottom. To climb back to the top, he enlists in the help of a former fighter who trains the best ameteur boxers around, Tick Willis — played by Forest Whitaker.
If that's not enough to get you excited, the film also stars Rachel McAdams and 50 Cent, and the script was penned by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter!

This is no bueno!
If you ordered a Sons of Anarchy collector's edition book and already got it in the mail… DO NOT OPEN IT! Unless you love spoilers.
The book was sent out before the season finale aired, and it was chock full of information nobody wants before the series finale! Creator Kurt Sutter tweeted a NSFW, but totally spot-on apology, saying:

Details surrounding the unthinkable tragedy that took the lives of an elderly Los Feliz woman, actor Johnny Lewis, and a cat are unclear.
Though the picture is still murky, ex-lover Katy Perry and now fellow actors are speaking their minds.
Twilight star Nikki Reed was a friend and colleague of Johnny and she never imagined this could happen.

…if we have DirecTV that is…
So basically, there's a whole lotta drama going down between DirecTV and FX!!!
Last week, DirecTV let Fox Networks know they were about to drop their a$$es if they couldn't agree on carriage fees. So then Fox was all like hey let's extend this but according to them, DirecTV told them hellll to the no unless they agreed to their demands.
So DirecTV wants to "suspend" the networks beginning Nov. 1. Word went around, eventually landing in Kurt Sutters' ears. Being the creator of FX's big hit Sons of Anarchy, this is going to affect him a lil bit.
So this is what he has to say about it:

Another season of seksirrific Charlie Hunnam? We'll take it!
After Sons of Anarchy became FX's highest rated program last month, we kind of assumed it'd be renewed for another season…and we were right.
This morning, FX announced that they're renewing SOA for a 13-episode fifth season.
Here's what FX president John Landgraf had to say about the network's decision to renew the show:

That doesn't mean, however, that he's run out of things to say.
Kurt Sutter, creator of Sons of Anarchy, has been a very vocal party during all of this controversy with AMC. However, when it was announced yesterday that Breaking Bad has been renewed by the network for a final season, Kurt was surprisingly quiet. Not a single tweet escaped his page. No ranting or raving of any kind was to be found anywhere on his site.
Well, we've since learned that Kurt has decided to end his time on Twitter. Why? Gee, why does anyone quit Twitter really? How about we read his blog post, which is well beyond 140 characters (ding, ding, ding) and see if we can't figure it out. Kurt writes:
