Whoopi Goldberg Shades Director Wes Anderson For Not Casting Enough Minorities! Do U Agree???

Whoopi Goldberg calls out director Wes Anderson! Do U agree with her?

One thing we love about Whoopi Goldberg is that she's NEVER afraid to speak her mind — even when the subject is a bit controversial!

Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman swung by The View this morning to talk a bit about their upcoming movie The Overnight!

But before they left, Whoopi decided to grill Jason on his longtime collaborator, director Wes Anderson!

The 59-year-old EGOT winner asked Schwartzman to pass along her résumé to the director, teasing:

"I want to do this right because I love all the Wes Anderson movies that you starred—like, almost all of them, from Grand Budapest Hotel and Rushmore and all of those. So, I noticed there's not a lot of folks of color and I thought I would like to give you my résumé to give to Wes Anderson just to let him know I'm available."

Dang! Was Whoopi just kidding? Raven-Symoné seemed to think so, as she added:

"She won't do full-frontal nudity."

To which Whoopi actually said she would! Ha!

Srsly though, the poor representation of minorities in film really is a problem, as last year's Oscar nominations were a pretty glaring example.

But if we look at last year's nominees for Best Picture, the ONLY movie other than Selma to have a minority actor in a starring role was actually Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel (Tony Revolori played main character Zero)!

Even in his first film, Bottle Rocket, Wes had Mexican actress Lumi Cavazos in one of leading roles as Inez! Brazilian musician Seu Jorge acted in and provided a TON of the music for The Life Aquatic, and American Indian actor Waris Ahluwalia was featuring in both The Darjeeling Limited and Grand Budapest!

That being said, Anderson classics Rushmore and Moonrise Kingdom are comprised of almost ENTIRELY white casts!

Minority representation in film is DEFINITELY big issue in Hollywood right now! But do U agree with Whoopi that Wes Anderson is one of the directors to blame??

What Would Happen If Wes Anderson Directed Horror Classic The Shining? Watch The Grand Overlook Hotel Mashup Trailer Here!

Filed under: Film FlickersYouTubeJack Nicholson

no title

Stanley Kubrick's 1980 horror classic The Shining and Wes Anderson's award-winning Grand Budapest Hotel probably don't seem that much alike.

But with some clever editing, the two hotel-based films go together like peanut butter and horribly frightening jelly!

Editor Steve Ramsden says he was inspired to mash up the two after realizing how similar the directors frame their shots — and the video is proof that he's right!

Check out the trailer (below) to see the whimsical madness that is The Grand Overlook Hotel!

Richard Linklater Demands The Stage As He Wins The Critics' Choice Award For Best Director!

And just like that, one of the biggest awards at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards is gone!

But that's only because Richard Linklater won it!

The man behind Boyhood won the award for Best Director, and we have to say, none of the other pieces could really compare to his 12-year project.

It's seriously one of a kind!

To win the honor, Richard beat out Wes Anderson for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Ava DuVernay for Selma, David Fincher for Gone Girl, Alejandro G. Inarritu for Birdman, and Angelina Jolie for Unbroken.

Congrats again, Richard!

Ch-ch-check out his unjustly rushed acceptance speech (above)!!!

Wes Anderson Has A Grand Night At The Golden Globes As The Grand Budapest Hotel Wins Best Motion Picture For A Comedy!

Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzGolden Globes

Talk about an upset!

Despite being a rather famous director, Wes Anderson just won his first ever Golden Globe on Sunday!

The Grand Budapest Hotel won one of the highest honors of the night by taking the award for Best Motion Picture — Comedy or Musical.

In order to win, the film beat out Birdman by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Into the Woods by Rob Marshall, Pride by Matthew Warchus, and St. Vincent by Theodore Melfi.

Who knows? Maybe this will be a precursor of what's to come at this year's Academy Awards.

Congratulations again to everyone involved!

Watch the acceptance speech (above)!

Richard Linklater's Boyhood Earns Him The Golden Globe Award For Best Director!

Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzGolden Globes

What a GREAT night for Richard Linklater!

The fabulous Richard won Best Director at the Golden Globe Awards for the much celebrated Boyhood.

Considering the film took 12 years to make, we think the win is more than well-deserved!!!

Linklater beat out the amazing Wes Anderson, Ava DuVernay, David Fincher, and Alejandro González Iñárritu for the coveted awards.

It's a fantastic evening for Boyhood — earlier in the evening Patricia Arquette won Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film.

Congrats, Richard!!
