The 86th Academy Awards is less than a week away and the night is proving to be more star-studded than ever.
On Monday, producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced the complete slate of stars who will be on stage to present alongside the previously announced Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Christoph Waltz and Anne Hathaway -- last year's acting winners.
Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel's first departure from its traditional comic book roster. Based on a popular franchise, the film's leads are a far cry from the clean-cut Golden Age Avengers. Most of them aren't even human.
NBC has unveiled the first week of guests for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
As previously announced, Will Smith and musical guest U2 will be on Fallon's inaugural show.
In the words of Sally Field, the Academy likes David O. Russell. It really likes him. On Thursday, Russell's American Hustle co-led (with Gravity) Thursday's Oscar nominations with 10, while Russell carved out a piece of Oscar history for himself: He's now the only director to have two films garner acting nominations in all four categories. Those weren't the only shockers though.
While Alias fans look back on Bradley Cooper's character Will Tippin with fondness, the actor feels drastically different.
In the January issue of GQ, Cooper recalled how his excitement at the role soon turned to frustration as he screen time quickly began to diminish. "I would only work three days a week. And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, 'Ugh.' And then next thing you know, I was like, 'I want to f---ing kill myself.'"
Cooper then decided to take a risk and asked to be written off the spy drama. "[J.J. Abrams] was like, 'OK.' He probably would've fired me, anyway," he said.
