To boldly go where no host has gone before? Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana, stars of J.J. Abrams upcoming Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, have been tapped to host the Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards this year. Have a look at the press release after the jump.
The first trailer for Jeff Nichols’ (Take Shelter) Mud, starring Matthew McConaughey, dropped Wednesday, and it looks like the actor is picking up in 2013 right where he left off in 2012. After impressive performances in films like Bernie, Killer Joe, and, fine, Magic Mike, it looks as if McConaughey is building up quite a resume as of late. In Mud, he plays a fugitive hiding out on an island in the Mississippi River, where two boys (one played by The Tree of Life’s Tye Sheridan) discover and befriend the drifter. The rest of the cast rounds out nicely, including Reese Witherspoon, Sam Shepherd, Michael Shannon and Sarah Paulson. Mud will be in limited release April 20th, watch the trailer after the jump.
Every year we have to accept the fact that not everything or everyone deserving of an Oscar nomination will receive one. We all have our favorite “snubs” to gripe about, whether it is the score for Cloud Atlas, the screenplay for Looper, or the craziness that is the Best Director field. After the jump, have a look at a nice retrospective on most of the people that Oscar forgot about this year.
It’s that time of the year where we want to hear from all of you. There is a short 10 question survey for you to fill out and I beg that you take a few moments to fill out the survey in order to make the Awards Circuit a better place for all entertainment enthusiasts. Greatly appreciated!
