    E Online: Cruise, McCarthy Singled Out at Razzies

    Jenny McCarthy may have been singled out as this year's top Razzie recipient, but Tom Cruise's couch-jumping antics did not go unrewarded. As the star, writer and producer of 2005's little-seen, but universally panned comedy "Dirty Love," the onetime Playboy Playmate earned a trio of dishonors at Saturday's awards ceremony--namely Worst Actress, Worst Screenplay and Worst Picture. "Dirty Love" failed to sweep the six categories in which it was nominated. Worst Supporting Actress nominee Carmen Electra lost out to "House of Wax" star Paris Hilton, and McCarthy, nominated for Worst Onscreen Couple, along with Anyone Dumb Enough to Befriend or D...

    Reuters: "Brokeback" too controversial after all: writer

    Maybe a gay cowboy picture was too controversial after all, or at least that is what the legendary Western writer who adapted "Brokeback Mountain" for the screen thinks. "Perhaps the truth really is, Americans don't want cowboys to be gay," said Larry McMurtry, 69 who has spent his career challengin...

    DISPATCH FROM AWARDS SEASON: The Indiewood Oscars -- Four Specialty Films (Made For $35 Million Comb

    Leading up to Sunday's Academy Awards, numerous insiders and observers have quipped that this year's Oscar ceremony will be a bust with TV viewers since there are few big stars and only smaller movies nominated for the big awards. Indeed, the combined budget for the five best picture Oscar nominees is about $105 million (and $70 million of that belongs to the cost of the one studio picture, "Munich"), while the collective box office gross of the five best picture nominees is just over $225 million. Yet, budgets and box office aside, this year's ceremony will offer a bit of drama, particularly in the best actor category. We have to simply wond...
