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 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?
