Anne Hathaway Nabs Best Supporting Actress At Critics' Choice Awards

Anne Hathaway Critics Choice Awards Best Supporting Actress

This could be the start of an award season sweep!

Anne Hathaway wowed audiences in Les Miserables, and now she is being wowed herself with the Critics' Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Anne managed to beat out the stiff competition that included Helen Hunt, Judi Dench, Ann Dowd, Sally Field and Amy Adams.

Plus, she charmed audiences by pointing out her name was misspelled on the winning envelope. Oops!

LOLz!

Funny and talented? We love it!

Former Best Actor Nominee Joaquin Phoenix Thinks The Oscars Are 'Bullsh*t'

Andddddddd his chances for taking home an Academy Award for his critically acclaimed performance in The Master just plummeted! LOLz!

Joaquin Phoenix doesn't care though, which is kind of admirable. The actor — who made his glorious return to the screen in September after a failed rapping career mockumentary –believes Hollywood's highest honor is "total, utter bullsh*t."

He made his opinion known during a recent interview with highly respected film critic Elvis Mitchell for Interview magazine and explained his position by saying:

"I think it's bulls–t. I think it's total, utter bulls–t, and I don't want to be a part of it. I don't believe in it. It's a carrot, but it's the worst-tasting carrot I've ever tasted in my whole life. I don't want this carrot. It's totally subjective. Pitting people against each other … It's the stupidest thing in the whole world."

Is it really? Or is he just bitter because he was nominated for Walk the Line and lost?

If we take him at his word, then yes, the award really is stupid and he thought so long before he had his chance to take one home. Phoenix revealed he felt "uncomfortable" when he was nominated while continuing:

"It was one of the most uncomfortable periods of my life when Walk the Line was going through all the awards stuff and all that. I never want to have that experience again. I don't know how to explain it — and it's not like I'm in this place where I think I'm just above it — but I just don't ever want to get comfortable with that part of things."

After every Academy voter finds out just how much he despises the Oscars, then maybe he won't. Still, we kinda hope he does because in our minds, talent deserves to be rewarded!

Zombies And Scientology Cults TOP The Weekend Box Office!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

resident-evil-tops-weekend-box-office-the-master-opens-huge-debut

Sorry, possessed demon girls!

When it comes to movies, zombies ALWAYS win!

Even if those zombies are in the latest addition to the Resident Evil franchise!

That's right, Resident Evil: Retribution came out on top this weekend, beating out last weekend's previous number one flick, The Posession, and even the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo, with an impressive $21.1 million opening!

However, it was P.T. Anderson's The Master, which opened in only five theaters and stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as the head of a very Scientology-like cult, made a record-breaking $729,745, equaling out to a per-screen average of $145,949!

WOWZA!

We'll be VERY curious to see how that one continues to do as more and more buzz is generated!

Ch-ch-check out the full box office top ten this weekendAFTER THE JUMP!!!

Watch The Final Trailer For The Master

Paul Thomas Anderson has wowed the film community again and again and it looks like The Master will not break that trend when it hits theaters on September 21.

The final trailer for the flick (above) that could give both Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman Oscar #2 has been released and we think it's the best one yet.

In just over a minute, we can clearly see the tension rising between the master and his pupil and we can't wait to see their relationship explode on the big screen before those credits roll!

The Master Talks About Love In Newest Trailer

The trailers for P.T. Anderson's The Master are almost like short films themselves. Rather than just showing a bunch of quick clips from the entire thing, each seems to give us a preview of a specific moment or theme that the narrative explores.

The newest trailer (above), which was tailor-made for last night's advanced screening at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago, is all about love and how Phillip Seymour Hoffman's character believes it affects his pupils.

It's both mysterious and intriguing, but mainly makes us a little jealous we missed that surprise screening in Santa Monica last week.

The Master Mysteriously Disappears From The Venice Film Festival Line-Up

Film enthusiasts hoping to get a glimpse (or at least a review) of Paul Thomas Anderson's newest drama, The Master, at this summer's Venice Film Festival are majorly disappointed.

While sources reported that the next film from the director of There Will Be Blood will be debuting at the festival, it mysteriously disappeared from the schedule.

There are still plenty of high-profile films for festival attendees to look forward to, but still, pretty much everyone was
