    'The Artist' Tops The 84th Annual Academy Awards Winning Best Picture, Director, Actor & More

    While it was supposed to be the evening of the French-made silent film "The Artist" -- and don't worry, eventually it was -- the narrative of the 84th Annual Academy Awards was certainly, for at least two-thirds of the show, all about Martin Scorsese's "Hugo."

    2012 Spirit Awards Predictions: Will They Think Outside 'The Artist' Box?

    It came as something of a shock when Michel Hazanavicius's "The Artist" topped the Spirit Award nominations last November. Not because people didn't think it wasn't good enough, but because most assumed it was ineligible due to being a French production with a French filmmaker....

    Uggie Predicts the Oscars On Jimmy Kimmel Live (UPDATED)

    Predicting the Oscars while sitting in New York is possible, but probably not the best way to guess – it’s like covering the Republican primaries through the media without ever setting foot in a caucus state. You can do it, but someone who has more contact with the locals may have a...

    Clooney vs. Dujardin: Can Subtlety Ever Win The Best Actor Oscar?

    The Oscar for best Actor doesn't usually reward subtlety. Look at the past two years: Colin Firth won last time around for his stuttery role in The King’s Speech, while the year before his infinitely more nuanced and better performance in A Single Man lost to Jeff Bridges’ roaring dr...

    Dog Wars: Scorsese Defends Blackie

    I’m not a dog person, so I don’t really have an animal in this fight. But I have to agree with the Uggie backlash, which took off when Christopher Plummer pointed out – quite rightly I think – that Cosmo from Beginners is a much cuter dog. Now Martin Scorsese is getting into ...
