    "I Can't Wait To See How It Ends": New Teaser Trailer For Luc Besson's 'The Family' Starring Robert De Niro

    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.
