TIG is striking out on winning awards, but it's still winning in the box office, even as it expands into more and more U.S. theatres. That's part of what the director was talking about on the SAG RC, the fact that so many people are seeing TIG and then reading books to learn more about him. Can't help but think that things might have been different, at least to some degree, without Skantopus gumming up the works.

Yep, it’s still making Uncle Harvey a decent amount of $$$ for his investment.  

Not being able to sell the showmance, definitely isn’t helping BC’s image.  Especially in the industry.  Not sure if that affected awards – there’s some hefty competition this year.

But EVERYONE involved should be happy that the film is being seen and that the story is getting out there.  I think BC would be very happy with that.  And the Oscar Nom too.  :D

i rearranged my dorm room so now i have two twin beds pushed together aka a mega bed and i’m getting my room all warm & cozy for the winter storm/blizzard and i plan on watching all the oscar nom movies once the storm hits boston

"I have never studied acting, yet the very first time I went for an audition and did a cold reading, I surprised everyone with my honesty and transparency. They told me that I could play any part, because I do not have walls, I do not place obstacles between myself and the character I have to play".

I wonder at this point if BC blew off the SAG awards because he felt he was a losing option anyway. With Keaton sweeping quite nearly every time, BC may be feeling quite deflated. He does come across to me as a sore loser (hey, many people in life are) and the stress for him might be a bit too high to deal with more PR fakery. He may not want to give SH any more camera time than necessary that would rub anything of the sham and award loss in his face.

He already has the Oscar Nom.  But still, he really should have been there.  This is SOMETHING.


I want to tell the rebels that I am alive. That I’m right here in District Eight, where the Capitol has just bombed a hospital full of unarmed men, women and children. There will be no survivors. I want to tell the people that if you think for one second the Capitol will treat us fairly if there’s a cease-fire, you’re deluding yourself. Because we know what they are and what they are. THIS IS WHAT THEY DO. 

President Snow says he’s sending us a message? Well, I have one for him. You can torture and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground. Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us!


Right now at the Academy: we are putting together Oscar invite packets for the Nominees Luncheon, the Governors Ball, and the 87th Oscars ceremony.

Tomorrow at 5am Pacific Time: we will begin announcing the nominees.

Immediately after that: we will address and mail the invitations. 

You can watch the nomination announcements on Good Morning America, YouTube, and/or at Oscars.com

"Well, this is surreal. I am completely knocked out, thank you to the Academy for this incredible honor. I am very proud and lucky to be a part of Birdman and can’t believe it came to this. I am so f—king excited. Are you allowed to say f—k when you’re making a statement for the Oscars? I’m just really f—king excited."

-Emma Stone, Best Supporting Actrees Nominee for Birdman [x]
