After Earth Smiths

With no new Twilight film in theaters and Adam Sandler somehow skating by on the “merits” of Grown-Ups 2, the crew at the Razzies has taken aim at the anthology comedy Movie 43, and at Will Smith and Jaden Smith for their work in After Earth. The Razzies tend to set their sights just as low as the ambitions of most of the movies they lampoon, and somehow manage to make a lazy go of lambasting bad movies and parodying awards.

But maybe you just want to know that you’re not alone in thinking that Kim Kardashian did a bad job acting in a Tyler Perry movie. In that case, check out the “winners” below. Read More »

There’s not a letter or decimal point missing in that headline. Makeup artist Robin Mathews, who is nominated for an Oscar for her work on Dallas Buyer’s Club, achieved the film’s impressive look on a budget of only $250 — that’s two hundred and fifty bucks for the whole thing, not just one scene or character. The other side of that budget is something more difficult to quantify; it’s a balance of time and effort, of experimentation and nights and weekends spent playing with technique rather than resting.

Mathews gives some details about the work below. Read More »

American Hustle Lego header

Even before we found out “everything is awesome” in The LEGO Movie, LEGO movie stuff was pretty “awesome” on the internet. The LEGO video games made new fans, and reimagined posters using the construction toys are fairly common place. Huge trailers are regularly adapted into stop motion LEGO versions. Even so, those adaptations are usually for “blockbuster” cinema, big summer and superhero movies.

Now the gang over at Old Red Jalopy have remade the posters for all 9 Oscar nominees for Best Picture with LEGO. It makes sense for some, like Gravity, but 12 Years A Slave? Nebraska? The fricking Dallas Buyers Club in LEGO? Check them out below. Read More »

Gravity

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts unveiled the winners of their 2014 awards this weekend, just two weeks ahead of the Academy Awards. The biggest winner of the night was Gravity, which took home six awards, but Best Film remained out of Alfonso Cuarón‘s grasp. That prize went instead to 12 Years a Slave, which secured only one other win last night, for lead actor Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Elsewhere, American Hustle, widely considered this season’s other Best Picture frontrunner, nabbed three prizes including one for supporting actress Jennifer Lawrence. The corresponding male category offered perhaps the biggest surprise of the night — a win for Captain Phillips‘ Barkhad Abdi, who beat out the likes of Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender

Hit the jump for the list of winners.
