If the Academy Awards are too fancy and high-falutin’ for you, you can always look to the People’s Choice Awards to be reminded that yes, those movies that you saw last summer were good! As with any system where the general public makes decisions through mass voting, the results of this annual awards ceremony can sometimes be head-scratching, but they always make sense when you think about them for more than five seconds. Of course Finding Dory won a bunch of prizes, including Favorite Movie, last night. Did you see how much money it made? It’s probably the movie most people actually saw!

It’s still shocking to think about, but American treasure Carrie Fisher is no longer with us. She has been continuously remembered and mourned by her friends and colleagues since news of her passing was reported yesterday. Meanwhile, her fans have nothing but love and respect to give as well, not just for her career in entertainment, but for her honest, helpful voice discussing mental illness, alcoholism, and drug abuse.
Even though we didn’t know Carrie Fisher, it’s easy for us to feel like we did having experienced her bright personality for decades. Therefore, it’s important to remember at her best. While we know all about her best moments on film in Star Wars, When Harry Met Sally, The Blues Brothers and more, there are plenty of other shining moments that give us infinitely more reasons to love the best of Carrie Fisher.

A couple of weeks ago, Tom Hanks appeared on Ellen where he and host Ellen DeGeneres performed a scene imagining what it would be like if Woody from Toy Story met Dory from Finding Nemo. It looks like this is becoming a regular bit on the Ellen show as this week Kristen Bell appeared to promote her new television series and was roped into imagining what it would be like if Frozen‘s Princess Anna met Dory in the first Pixar/Walt Disney Animation Studios crossover. Watch the video clip now after the jump.

This week brings Pixar Animation’s anticipated sequel Finding Dory, the follow-up to the animation studio’s 2003 hit undersea adventure Finding Nemo.

Finding Dory doesn’t arrive in theaters until next weekend, but a slew of press and critics have already seen the movie as they participate in press junkets with the cast and crew. Today reviews started hitting the web, and for the most part, it seems the follow-up to Finding Nemo is a worthy successor to the original undersea adventure, though it treads much of the same water. For many, it seems to be just as good as the original, inspiring some tears to roll, but there are a few who weren’t as impressed.

I was as hesitant about a sequel to Finding Nemo as anyone else, but the closer we get the release date of Finding Dory, the more optimistic I get regarding this whole film. It looks gorgeously animated, funny and charming. Most importantly, there are shreds of evidence in the various trailers that suggest this talking fish movie will reduce me to a blubbering mess in true Up and Inside Out fashion. Bring it on, Pixar. This wouldn’t be the first time you’ve brought a sledgehammer down upon my fragile emotions.
The first Finding Dory clip that has debuted online doesn’t feature any heartstring tugging, but it does feature the return of few familiar faces and it’s perfectly adorable.

Dory’s not so hot at remembering names, or faces, or much of anything, really, but the Pacific regal blue tang made an unforgettable impression in the first Finding Nemo. Her warmth, generosity, and sunny (if oblivious) optimism made her the breakout character of that movie, even more so than Marlin or Nemo himself. So, thirteen years later, she’s finally getting to lead her own Pixar feature.
Finding Dory picks up a few months after the events of Finding Nemo, as Dory tries to journey back home to the family she’s forgotten. Marlin and Nemo tag along for the ride, as Dory meets friends both old and new — including at least one friend who’s simultaneously old and new, since we’ve never met her but she remembers Dory from way back. Ellen DeGeneres, who returns to voice Dory, has just unveiled the latest Finding Dory trailer online, and you can see it after the jump. Read More »

A lot’s changed for most of us in the past 13 years, but Dory, it seems, is right where we left her. That’s partly because only a few months have changed in her world — but it’s also because she’s still the blue tang so forgetful that in the latest Finding Dory teaser, has trouble remembering she’s the Dory of the title. Instead, she suggests an alternate interpretation of the title. Watch the new Finding Dory teaser after the jump. Read More »
