Sometimes you can’t help but notice and say, “Hey I’ve seen that guy in at least 3 other movies this year”. I like to think for most actors that doing one year should be more than enough to pay off that year’s bills and still live in a luxurious sense. But then I see some actors that do 2 or 3 movies in one year, I think to myself: not only are you loaded, but you must be absolutely exhausted. How are they able to deliver such powerful performances when they’re doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling characters in one period of time. Forget Daniel Day-Lewis [who takes years for him to get into character], get these peoples Oscars or some sort of award quickly, because they definitely deserve it for their versatility. So below is a list of actors who did multiple movies in the same year and were able to deliver awesome performances in them. Be sure to remind me of the many that I missed in the comments section below!

I’m personally not a late night host watcher, but I do appreciate some of the awesome things they accomplish. In this video, Jimmy Kimmel seemed to assemble every A-lister known to the industry in this epic mashup called Movie: the Movie, where he pretty much makes fun of movie cliches. The clip itself isn’t THAT hilarious, but more of a crazy achievement in putting this many A-listers into one video. And as always: Kate Beckinsale is mighty fine.
Vulture put together a very satirical and hilarious series of infographics. Very minimalist, which means it’s straight and to the point, but it does so in an artistic manner. Regardless of the art-type the content is very worthy of your attention. Plus I had to pull yesterday’s post regarding Angelina Jolie pulling a Basic Instinct for the Community Trailer and I’m shoving it here.
Horrifying I know.
But here’s the rest of the infographics. There are even more below.
Oscars week part 2. Some dudes actually compiled most/all of the swear words from all the best pictures. How on Earth does one sit through and pay attention to do all this. Kudos to them, I hope all the hard work paid off.
This week’s 3:00 EST quips will honor the remains of the Oscar hangover. It know it’s been like 2 weeks, but in case you missed any bit, this will week will bring you the best the internet had to offer of Oscar related things. Today’s post is probably the most memorable moment of the night. Sasha Baren Cohen’s Dictator scuffing up the pretty pompous face of Ryan Seacrest is quite the sight to see.

There’s something about the nice attire, sincerely superficial attitude, and general ass kissing aura that makes the award show photobomb much better than a regular celebrity photobomb. Here’s a gallery of some hilarious photobombs during some of the most inopportune times. It almost makes them seem human…

How do you rank the best of the best? With loads of bias and favortism, that’s how. I recently tried to finish up the past decade of best picture movies with finally watching Crash for the first time. Now that all of that is said and done, I can finally attempt to rank each of these movies. They’re all extremely good and it’s difficult to place on in front of the other for different reasons. This ranking was as difficult as ranking Pixar’s best. It’s just way too hard for someone to do without a score system of some sort. Some have really strong supporting characters, others fantastic storylines. How put one in front of the other? In the end, I decided on placing movies I’d watch again and again as top priority. Sure, my reasoning is full of holes and my descriptions don’t often justify the ranking, but I’m more doing this to hear what you guys have to say. Anyways here’s the breakdown and thus the start of my journey to seal up the 90’s Best picture. Here I come: Shakespeare in Love, The English Patient, and Unforgiven.
Of all the film award ceremonies, it is well known that the Academy Awards [Oscars] are the most prestigious. It’s great seeing everyone dressing up, everyone acting all excited, and all that award show jazz. As wound up as everyone might seem on film’s most important night, every once in a while, a very cool and memorable moment happens, whether it be an opening monologue or an acceptance speech. A while back I did an MTV Movie Award compilation of awesome moments. Below, I’ve compiled a list of videos of awesome Oscar moments [at least awesome moments when I was alive, I'm sure there's a lot of awesome moments that spanned from the 30s to now, but I'm just not that dedicated enough to dig deep at the award speech of 1952 that shook the entire industry]. Let me know if I missed any and hit the jump to see the rest.
Watching the Oscars this year was an unfortunate waste of time. Everything was predictable, I was not entertained, and the hosts were lame. It’s easy to say that to improve the Oscars you should make it unpredictable, entertaining, and pick fantastic hosts. But it goes deeper than that. And with Rush Hour director Brett Ratner producing it, the Oscars has a chance to be entertaining again. Just remembering how forgettable the last Oscars was, I’ve looked into the past and looked at some o the most entertaining moments at the Oscars [see my video compilation here] and determined how the Oscars can be the best ceremony once again.
