    Blue Sky founder and director Chris Wedge recently gave a sneak peek of his latest animated feature, "Epic" (May 24), at Fox (you can view the new trailer below). It's certainly no "FernGully," and it's a far cry from "Ice Age" and everything else Blue Sky has ever made. It's more like "Avatar" meet...

    Analyze This: Why 'Argo' Won Best Picture, Ang Lee Won Best Director & More 2013 Oscar Fallout

    One could suggest that we and other pundits have exhausted the conversation around the 85th Academy Awards. We might not argue with that, but while we've had plenty of opportunities to examine the surprises, the snubs, the show itself, both its best/worst moments and how it can improve, we personall...

    Watch: Oscar Acceptance Speeches From Ben Affleck, Ang Lee, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Haneke & More

    Despite what whoever was pressing the "Jaws" theme button last night believes, the highlights of the annual Academy Awards tend not to be the montages and dance numbers, but the speeches. It's the moment where an actor or artist is rewarded by their peers, and thanks the Academy with wit, graciousne...

    The H Is Silent: Watch Christoph Waltz In SNL's Quentin Tarantino Parody 'Djesus Uncrossed'

    "Saturday Night Live" is in something of a transitional period, one of many in its 30-odd-year history.

    The Early Gems: Notable Performances From 2013's Best Supporting Actor Oscar Nominees

    After a long, punishing Oscar season that started about 50 weeks ago (although we suppose it only really kicked in in August or September), we're now about a week-and-a-half out from the 2013 ceremony. And for all our grumbling, it's always a key fixture in the cinephile calendar, and as such, we're...

    Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns: Oscar Questions As They (Maybe) Ought To Be

    In a promo for 'Pitch Perfect' that seems to have been on an endless loop on my On Demand Chanel lately, Rebel Wilson gushes “We had such fun” making the movie. Just once, I would love to hear an actor say: “It was hell, we hated each other, I never want to work with t...

    Watch: Jennifer Lawrence, Christoph Waltz, Naomi Watts, Amy Adams & Anne Hathaway In 'Between Two Ferns' Oscar Special

    It's been a little while since Zach Galifianakis got on to the very low budget set of his talk show "Between Two Ferns," but he's back and has served up a doozy. It's Oscar time, and the actor has taken the opportunity to sit down with the nominees. The results are pretty hilar...
