BREAKING: Academy Award Winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead

Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Best Actor Oscar in 2006

This came as a shocker.  One of my favorite actors, if not THE best character actor of this generation, Academy Award Winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his apartment in Greenwich Village, New York City on 2 February.  He was 46.

According to CNN, the police reports noted that he died of an apparent drug overdose.

Police said Hoffman, 46, was found on the bathroom floor and pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators found two bags of what is believed to be heroin inside the fourth-floor apartment, law enforcement officials said.

Hoffman was last seen alive at 8 p.m. Saturday, a law enforcement official said. He was expected to get his children on Sunday, but didn’t show up, the official said.Playwright David Katz and another person went to the apartment and found him dead, the official said.

A needle was in the actor’s left arm, and eight empty glassine-type bags that usually contain heroin were found in the apartment, law enforcement sources told CNN.

The bags were stamped with “Ace of Hearts” and “Ace of Spades” — street names for the heroin, the sources said.

I just could not believe that with all of the achievements and success he has received in his entire career by his peers in the business that he would end his life like this.  In an interview with “60 Minutes,” he revealed that he had given up drugs and alcohol many years earlier.  But last year, he checked into a rehabilitation program for about 10 days after a reliance on prescription pills resulted in his briefly turning again to heroin.  This is a realization that drug addiction can only do you wrong.

Hoffman made his debut on the big screen via Scent of a Woman and since then he had been cast in roles that were dark, dense, complicated, and nothing short three-dimensional.

Hoffman won an Academy Award in 2006 for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in the film “Capote,” in which he portrayed the author Truman Capote.

He was also nominated for the Academy Award for Actor in a Supporting Role three times for his scene-stealing roles, one in the 2012 film “The Master,” in the 2008 film “Doubt,” and the 2007 film “Charlie Wilson’s War.”  He also recently had a role in the hugely popular “The Hunger Games” films as the unpredictable Game Maker Plutarch Heavensbee.  Reportedly he only had 7 days of shooting for the franchise’s final film, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2,” but now that he is gone, the production has yet to come up with a statement.

He also starred in several critically-acclaimed movies like The Talented Mr. Ripley (one of my favorite movies of all time), Patch Adams, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Moneyball.  He is truly brilliant in whatever he’s done and he is definitely a big loss for the movie industry.  Hollywood is an infinitely less-interesting place without this highly versatile A-lister.

If you want to pursue a career in acting, look up to his body of work and I tell you, you will be inspired to do better.  Rest In Peace Mr. Hoffman, you are truly a Master of the screen.

Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Return for more ‘Avatar’ Sequels!

Zoe Saldana Sam Worthington Split - H 2014

Sulley and Neytiri are back for more action!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Avatar stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana have officially signed on to reprise their roles for three more Avatar sequels.  Yes, you heard that one right, Avatar will be coming back with not just one, not two, but THREE more sequels!

The sequels will be made back-to-back-to-back by super-director James Cameron with screenplays by Josh Friedman, duo Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, and Shane Salerno.  Actor Stephen Lang, who played Coronel Quaritch  was the first one to sign for the sequels, but we all know he died in the first film, so it will be interesting how would Cameron resurrect Lang’s character.

Here’s what Cameron has to say about Worthington and Saldana, and their respective Avatar characters:

“Jake Sully is a rare combination of passion, strength, street smarts and soul, which requires a lot from an actor. Sam brought to the role a combination of sensitivity, vulnerability and strength. Zoe captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing to Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they’ll be returning with us to Pandora.”

The first sequel will hit theaters in December 2016, with the second to follow in December 2017 and the third a year later.

Batman-Superman Movie Pushed to 2016

(c) businessinsider.com

Well guys, I guess we just have to wait a little longer for their much awaited on-screen team up.

 

Warner Bros. Pictures announced that the follow-up to the Man of Steel will hit theaters 6 May 2016, that’s a 10-month delay from its original play date 17 July 2015, this is to “allow the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story.

 

In addition, the Batman vs. Superman’s July 2015 release date will now be filled by a Peter Pan film by director Joe Wright.

“We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tentpole releases,” Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said in a statement. “We share the fans’ excitement to see DC Comics’ most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theaters in May 2016. Peter Pan has delighted people of every generation for more than a century, so we are thrilled to bring him back to the screen next summer for today’s moviegoers.”

 

What do you guys think of the delay?  The said move sets up a potential Marvel and DC collision as Disney/Marvel laso has an untitled Marvel movie move for that date.

SAG Awards 2014: ‘Bad,’ ‘Hustle,’ Win top Honors [Winners List]

Breaking Bad SAG Win - H 2014

And The Actor Goes To…Who?

 

The 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards just handed out the awards for best acting both in television and in film and the results were not at all surprising, well, except for a couple big ones.
Let’s begin first with the not-so-surprising:  Matthew McConaughey won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for Dallas Buyers Club, while Cate Blanchett received the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for Blue Jasmine.  Jared Leto also took home Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for Dallas Buyers Club.  McConaughey, Blanchett, and Leto are now expected to win top Acting honors at the 86th Annual Academy Awards on March 2.

 

On the other hand, hottest newcomer Lupita Syong’o took home Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for 12 Years A Slave.  The bets are now off between Jennifer Lawrence and Syong’o for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.  Lawrence won at the Golden Globes, while Syong’o won Critics’ Choice and now SAG.  This is going to be exciting come Oscar night!

 

In the Television category, Breaking Bad sealed the deal as the addicting (pun intended) drama was named Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series.  Bad‘s Bryan Cranston also won Outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Mr. Walter White.

 

Veep‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Modern Family‘s Ty Burrell won awards for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series, respectively. Burrell’s series, Modern Family, won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

 

As for the surprising results, Dame Maggie Smith won Outstanding Female Actor in a Drama Series for Downton Abbey, beating out Kerry Washington (Scandal), Clare Danes (Homeland), Jessica Lange (American Horror Story), and Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad).  In my opinion, I think Gunn deserved it more, but I know I was being biased.  But the biggest surprise of the night was the top price as the cast of the Abscam drama American Hustle upset the one favored by everyone to win (except me), 12 Years A Slave, for the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award, the SAG Awards’ equivalent of Best Picture.  Now the bigger question is that, will American Hustle carry on its victory to the Oscars?  I am hoping for the Hustle win, simply because the cast, in my opinion, was the best ensemble imaginable.

 

Here are the complete list of winners:

Oscars 2014: ‘American Hustle,’ ‘Gravity,’ ’12 Years A Slave’ in an apparent Three-Horse Race [Nominees List]

The nominees for the 86th Annual Academy Awards are finally here!  Hosted by Chris Hemsworth and Cheryl Boone Isaacs, President of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the nominees have just been announced live from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California and it looks like the race is on!  Abscam-comedy American Hustle and space-drama Gravity dominated the Academy Award nominations, earning 10 nominations each, closely followed by 12 Years A Slave with nine.  Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Her, Nebraska, Philomena, and The Wolf of Wall Street rounded up the top 9 that were nominated for Best Picture.

All winners of the recently-concluded Golden Globes were also present in this year’s Oscars.  Fresh from their Golden Globe wins, Matthew McConaughy (for Dallas Buyers Club), Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf Of Wall Street) are both nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role, as well as Amy Adams (American Hustle), Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) for Actress in a Leading Role, and  Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) for Best Supporting Actor.  Also, Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) is favored to win for Supporting Actress, as well as Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity) for Best Director. Lawrence, who won the lead actress Oscar last year for Silver Linings Playbook, is nominated again this year, this time in the Supporting Actress category.  Interestingly, her Silver Linings co-star Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for lead actor last year,  also returns this year with a nomination in the supporting actor category for Hustle.

 

As for the notable snubs, Tom Hanks was neglected for his critically-acclaimed role in Captain Phillips, while Emma Thompson and Robert Redford were also snubbed for their performances in Saving Mr. Banks and All Is Lost, respectively.  Lee Daniel’s The Butler was again shut out of any nominations.
