The Oscars can be very confusing and frustrating. So, if you're looking for an alternative, look no further than the MTV Movie Awards, which unveiled their 2015 nominations today. Oddly, they too are confusing and frustrating, albeit for completely different reasons.
Everybody knows by know of the Stan Lee cameos in the Marvel movies, and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is no exception. You probably also recognized the voice of Gary Sinise as the narrator of the Captain America exhibit at the Smithsonian in the movie. But, did you catch the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo by ‘Avengers 2’ director Joss Whedon? Don't worry, we've got that, and a lot more for you, in the latest patriotic installment of You Think You Know Movies!
Football fans are no doubt excited for the 2015 Super Bowl. Heck, Marvel superheroes Chris Pratt and Chris Evans have a bet riding on it. But, even non-sports fans can find something to enjoy. No, we're not talking about Katy Perry's décolletage, we're talking about the Super Bowl movie trailers that will be airing during the commercial breaks. With the 2015 Super Bowl set to air on NBC this weekend, we thought now would be the perfect time to run through what we know is going to debut during the big game and what surprises could still be in store. We'll continue to update with any last minute surprises, and you can watch all the 2015 Super Bowl trailers in our video hub.
Few would argue that the turning point in the 'Fast and Furious' films is when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson joined the cast in 'Fast Five' as federal agent Luke Hobbs. He brought a breath of fresh air to the 14-year-old franchise, but if things had gone originally as planned, he wouldn't even have been in the movie. 'Fast' producers originally wanted Tommy Lee Jones to star in the film until star Vin Diesel came to them with The Rock. And where did he get that idea? One of his Facebook fans suggested it to him. That's just one of the surprising 'Fast and Furious' facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
Here's some information for you: if you somehow ever win an Oscar, you only have 45 seconds up on that stage to thank anyone and everyone in your entire life. Then that music starts, your microphone gets cut off and the camera starts to pan away and then you have to slink off-stage quietly. Or, you could do what Alfred Hitchcock did with the shortest Oscars acceptance speech on record: just say, "thank you" and walk away. These are just some of the Oscars facts the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies! You'll like them! You'll really like them!
The morning of the Oscar nominations is a stressful time; we can certainly attest to that. Everything is happening so quickly and there are a lot of strange names to spell and pronounce and you have to do it really quickly. Tell it to Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who accidentally announced "Dick Poop" as an Oscar nominee this morning.
Well, that was interesting. Just when you think you've got the Oscars figured out, they throw you a huge curve ball. Or, maybe what's so surprising about this year's nominations is how nothing is really different?
With ‘Casino Royale’, ‘Quantum of Solace’ and ‘Skyfall’, the Daniel Craig era of the James Bond movies has been the most successful films of the entire franchise on both a critical and commercial level. That's pretty good for an actor a lot of Bond fans hated when he was originally cast (The Daily Mirror in London ran the headline “The Name's Bland. James Bland.”). With the next installment in Craig's 007 series—‘Spectre’—set for release in November, we thought we'd take a look back at the previous three films in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
The 2015 Golden Globes winners will be revealed during the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted awards ceremony, broadcast live on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST on NBC.
The 2015 Golden Globes winners are considered somewhat of a primer for the upcoming Oscars (both of which feature many of the same big Hollywood names and movies of the past year), but not exactly a perfect predictor either. Many movies and actors have won at the Golden Globes only to not even be nominated at the Oscars.
Check out the full list of 2015 Golden Globes winners below—which we'll bold as soon as they're announced on the telecast—and let us know what you think in the comments. Did your picks win big?
