Playback: Dev Patel on ‘Lion’ and Diversity’s Double-Edged Sword

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.
On this week’s show, with the year winding down (but the season heating up), Jenelle Riley and I take a few reader questions. Is Isabelle Huppert a threat to upset the lead actress race? Are the top three Oscars — best picture, director and screenplay — going to go to three different films? How do the critics groups influence the race? Are any of the current frontrunners in danger of peaking early like “The Social Network” and “Boyhood” in years past? We ponder all of that and more.
A little later I’m talking to “Lion” star Dev Patel, who also popped up in “The Man Who Knew Infinity” earlier this year. Eight years after “Slumdog Millionaire” shot him out of a cannon, he’s finding his way through more and more leading man territory.
For more, listen to the latest episode of “Playback” below. Check back next week when I’ll be talking to “The Jungle Book” director Jon Favreau, and be sure to subscribe!


“I was still trying to grasp the art of acting in front of a camera,” Patel recalls of that time. “When I did the TV show before that, I didn’t know what a boom mic was or what ‘speed’ meant. The next audition I got was for [‘Slumdog Millionaire’] and it was a real blessing, but at the same time, for your first film to come out and win 8 Oscars and you’re walking these carpets with these cinematic greats, it kind of gives you a level of anxiety. I was 17, 18 at the time, and I was like, ‘God, I haven’t really been able to test the waters and make mistakes and build a taste, really, or a style. So that’s been interesting. I never quite felt worthy when I was walking those carpets.”
A lot of Patel’s performance is internalized because of the guilt he’s trying to carry across, which the real Saroo Brierley felt profoundly, knowing his family was out there looking for him after he disappeared from an Indian railway station. How did he and director Garth Davis zero in on that?
“It requires a bigger command,” Patel says. “It’s far more exhausting, actually. He’s looking at this blurry laptop screen and he’s trawling his past. He’s in a world of nostalgia, and that’s what we spoke about. There’s a man who you see glimpses of being cool and funny, and all of a sudden when this Pandora’s box is opened, he starts to retreat into a land of nostalgia and becomes less present. It affects all the relationships in his life. It’s difficult to portray that and not overcook it.”
And both of the roles he’s taken on this year, obviously being biopics, are specific in their ethnicity. Diversity has come under scrutiny in this business the last few years, and rightfully so, but the question is whether there is ever a sense of pigeon-holing based on ethnicity. Does Patel feel like certain doors remain maddeningly closed to him?
“It’s a really tricky question, that,” he says. “Does Robert De Niro play ethnically specific characters? We don’t torture him for the fact that he’s playing a white guy or an Italian. We just embrace it. It confuses me sometimes because I feel people are mad at me for playing [Indian-specific roles]. When I look at ‘Lion,’ I want people to look at the transformation I went through. I don’t want them to look at me as an Indian guy. I want them to look at, ‘He put on 25 pounds worth of weight. He changed his voice to sound like an Australian. He spent eight months prepping.’ That’s what I want them to see, because that’s difficult.”

He continues: “That being said, are there good scripts flooding in? No. And I would like to pride myself on the fact that out of the hundred Indian-centric scripts I get sent, the five I’ve chosen have landed. I had to fight for ‘Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.’ I was too obvious for ‘Lion,’ coming off ‘Slumdog,’ so I had to fight for it. I just hope people don’t look past the struggle it takes for us. They’re doing us a bigger injustice that way. But yeah, I’d love to play a role that it doesn’t matter what his name is and where he’s from. It’s happening slowly.”
Patel had much more to say on that topic, in fact, and confided off the air that he was happy to wrangle with it in a much longer thought, as it’s something he’s often asked. Check out all of that and more in the streaming link above.

OMG! ¡Tenemos la historia de la próxima película ganadora de un Oscar! (+ Foto)

Conócela antes de que a filmen.

No hay nada más codiciado en Hollywood que una llamativa y original historia. Y es que ante tantos remakes, parecen no abundar mucho.

Bueno, en caso de que algún cineasta esté leyendo esto le traemos lo que bien podría convertirse en la trama central de la próxima película ganadora del Oscar…

¡¿De qué se trata?!

Todos hemos escuchado o sido testigos de historias sobre mascotas que tras días o semanas perdidos regresan a casa en busca de sus amos. Sí, también es un tema que han llevado a la gran pantalla y lloramos con De Vuelta a Casa, pero créannos, Pero -así se llama el can-, este perro británico merece un premio de la Academia…

Luego de que sus propietarios lo enviaron con un hombre en Cockermouth, Inglaterra, para trabajar en una granja, el can escapó y viajó al parecer poco más de ¡380 kilómetros! para encontrarse con sus antiguos propietarios, cerca de Aberystwyth, Gales.

El aventurero viaje duró 12 días.

“Nos habían dicho que Pero había desaparecido, y no estaba por ningún lado”, Shan James, su antigua dueña contó a la BBC. “Pero días después vimos que estaba en nuestra puerta.


James aseguró que posiblemente Pero fue alimentado en su camino, ya que no tenía síntomas de estar hambriento. Obviamente, ahora permanecerá en el hogar de donde nunca debió irse.

Rihanna Surprises Leonardo DiCaprio With Sweet Late Night Oscar Congrats Call

Well, this is unexpected! One of Leonardo DiCaprio’s former flames gave him a late night call to congratulate him on his long-awaited Oscar win on Feb. 28 – Rihanna! A source tells EXCLUSIVELY what RiRi said to the actor, here.

Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio, 41, and former lover Rihanna, 28, are on pretty good terms, because the singer called him up late on Feb. 28 following the Academy Awards. A source tells EXCLUSIVELY that she wanted to congratulate him on his overdue Oscar win. Find out what she said to Leo, right here!

“She was very happy that he won an Oscar last night and decided to congratulate him briefly via FaceTime,” an insider told EXCLUSIVELY. “It was a very quick conversation, and Ri told him she was ‘proud’ of him.” So sweet! Rihanna and Leo haven’t been caught out together since they secretly dated in May 2015, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about the actor, and Feb. 28 was a major night for him. You can stream Riri’s music RIGHT HERE.

So how did Leo feel about her reaching out to him? “Leo was speechless because he wasn’t expecting her to call,” the source explained EXCLUSIVELY to “Leo thanked her and held up the Oscar so she could see it. That was pretty much the extent of their phone call.” It sounds like it might turn into a date sometime soon, though. “It’s a big deal for Leo, and Ri wants to at least take him to dinner so they can celebrate soon.”

So does that mean a reunion might be in the cards? Not so much. “Rihanna can’t stand Leo sometimes because he’s such a bad boy and a player,” the source continued EXCLUSIVELY to “Clearly, they’re not dating but they do have a connection and continue to talk and even FaceTime.” We’re glad they can be so civil.

Leo’s rep denies that Rihanna called Leo to congratulate him.

HollywoodLifers – would you like to see Rihanna and Leo date again? Let us know what you’re thinking!

Alfombra Roja, Oscar Awards, / Mira los poderosos retratos para los que posaron las estrellas después del Oscar (+ Fotos)

Vanity Fair inmortalizó el glamour de la gran noche.

No por suerte la noche de los Oscar es conocida como la gran noche de Hollywood. Las más importantes estrellas vestidas glamorosamente honrando a lo mejor de la industria es la excusa perfecta para captar épicos momentos y encuentros.

Como cada año, la revista Vanity Fair celebró uno de los after party más famosos de los Oscar, y como es tradición, los ya tradicionales retratos no pudieron faltar, frente al lente del fotógrafo Mark Seliger y en un espectacular set diseñado por Judy Becker.

Una de las que posó fue Lady Gaga.

La cantante, quien estaba nominada en la categoría de Mejor Canción Original, volvió a lucir el moderno traje de pantalón con el que arribó a la #AlfombraRojaE! y lo mostró en todo su esplender en la publicación de Instagram de Vanity Fair.

La sexy pareja formada por Jessica Biel y Justin Timberlake mostró lo bien que la estaban pasando.

Luego de deslumbrar en la #AlfombraRojaE! con un hermoso vestido de Marchesa y anunciar al ganador de la Mejor Película Extranjera (que desafortunadamente no fue para Colombia) Sofía Vergara decidió ir a la fiesta con un vestido blanco con su habitual corte de sirena.

Alfombra Roja, Oscar Awards, / Plazas de México, España, Argentina y Chile se llenan de para celebrar el triunfo de Leonardo DiCaprio (Fotos + videos)

Hubo gente que se la tomó muy en serio…

Lo que comenzó como una broma en España, en un evento programado originalmente sólo para Madrid, con un “habrá una manifestación mundial si DiCaprio gana el Oscar” en Facebook, se volvió en realidad la noche de este domingo en diversas plazas de habla hispana.

Y es que los seguidores de Leonardo DiCaprio salieron a las plazas a celebrar el primer Oscar del actor, situación que en México no pasó desapercibida, y sus fans se congregaron en el Ángel de la Independencia, en la populosa Avenida Reforma.

También se reunieron en plazas de Chile, Argentina y Perú, y finalmente en España no se hizo por razones de horario, el festejo iba a ser este lunes 29, pero en el evento de Facebook confirman que se canceló. Aquí te mostramos algunos videos del festejo en México:

Oscars Ratings Decline Not Due to One Single Factor

he film biz recently celebrated a record-setting year at the domestic box office, yet it hardly came as a surprise that Sunday’s Oscars on ABC generated the show’s least-watched least-watched ceremony in eight years — and its smallest audience in some broad demos in more than a decade.

While some thought that the controversy over a dearth of diversity in the major acting nominations may have actually helped bring some curious viewers to see how host Chris Rock addressed the elephant in the room, these lookie-loos were likely canceled out by viewers who opted to skip the show in protest or solidarity.

Among the factors contributing to this year’s lower overall numbers was the audience makeup of best picture nominees like “The Revenant,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and “The Martian.” All three easily cleared $100 million in ticket sales — and the average domestic gross among the contenders was $97.8 million, the highest in three years — but they were hardly blockbusters, and many of these movies appealed to older crowds.

Studios don’t provide demographic data for a film’s entire theatrical run, but a snapshot of opening-weekend crowds can be revealing. “The Revenant,” for example, drew an initial crowd that was 73% over the age of 25, “The Martian’s” initial audience was 72% over the age of 25, “Mad Max” had 56% of ticket buyers over the age of 35, and other nominees such as “Bridge of Spies” drew an audience that was 89% over the age of 25. “Spotlight,” the eventual winner, also played best with older audiences.

Other contenders such as “Room,” which won a best actress Oscar for Brie Larson, failed to break out domestically, earning less than $15 million in its theatrical run.

And of course, none of the year’s three biggest box office blockbusters made much noise on Sunday. “Star Wars Ep. VII: The Force Awakens” picked up awards in technical categories, but “Jurassic World” and “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” were clearly more popcorn than prestige. Combined, the movies grossed nearly $2 billion in 2015 — accounting for about 18% of all ticket sales.

Another factor is that awards shows in general have had a hard time holding on to young viewers in recent years. Ratings for kudocasts tend to go up and down in unison, and after an across-the-board ratings spurt in 2012 and 2013, every major awards show has suffered at least two straight years of demo declines. For its part, this year’s Oscars ratings dipped 4% from last year in adults 18-49, and was down 18% from 2014; it was, however, up 1% vs. last year in men 18-34 and spiked 20% in men 18-34. Two weeks earlier, the Grammys on CBS suffered a 7% decline in adults 18-49 and a steep 22% tumble from just two years ago. And in January, the Golden Globes on NBC held up reasonably well, but was down 3% from last year and 15% lower than 2014.

It’s unlikely that a decline in black viewership significantly affected the overall ratings picture, though Rev. Al Sharpton, who led a boycott of about 70 demonstrators in Los Angeles during the Oscars telecast, certainly believed it made a difference.

“The early reports of a decline in the Oscar viewership is heartening to those of us that campaigned around asking citizens to tune out,” said Sharpton in a statement Monday morning following a 6% decline in overnight ratings. “This is a significant decline and should send a message to the Academy and to movie studio heads. Though clearly we don’t take full credit for the decline, certainly one would have to assume we were effective and part of the decline. And to those that mocked the idea of a tune out, it seems the joke was on them.”

Blacks typically make up a small percentage of the overall Oscar viewing pie, with the high tune-in the last 20 years coming when Rock hosted for the first time in 2005 (5.27 million viewers) — a year that also featured prominent acting noms for African-American actors including Jamie Foxx and Don Cheadle. Last year, less than 10% of the overall Oscar viewership (3.29 million of 37.26 million) was black, according to Nielsen. (This year’s numbers will be released Tuesday.)

Another issue that plagued the show was that given the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, Rock didn’t do any promotion to help drive tune-in.

“We were hampered in how we could promote the show,” says a network source. “We were behind the eight-ball, and America wasn’t interested in it; they may have tuned in for the monologue, but quickly tuned out. We didn’t make them care.”

While ABC’s marketing team threw everything in its arsenal to drum up interest in the Oscars, it’s likely that on-air spots weren’t as effective as in years past. The network has fallen to fourth place among young adults this season — it went through a particularly dark stretch for the first month of the year — and lower ratings for flagship shows like “Modern Family,” “Scandal” and “Shark Tank” in the days leading up to Sunday didn’t pack as much promotional punch.

Despite the declines, it’s worth remembering that the Oscars have proven resilient over the years, and remain far and away the top-rated awards show. (The Academy Awards stands as the top-rated entertainment telecast on teelvision of the past year, out-rating this month’s Grammys by 35% in adults 18-49, and besting last month’s Golden Globes by 89%.)

After slumping to 33 million viewers in 2003, ratings spiked to 43.5 million in 2004 — thanks in large part to the emergence of the popular “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.” And one year after hitting a record low of 32 million in 2008, the Oscars picked up about 4 million the following year.

But after suffering a public relations hit and falling to some of its lowest ratings in years, it will take more populist movies, a more diverse group of nominees and perhaps a stronger ABC to help turn the ship around.

Debra Birnbaum and Brent Lang contributed to this report.

Looking back on when Crash beat Brokeback Mountain for the Oscars

At the 2006 Oscars, “one of the biggest upsets in Academy Awards history” went down. Expected by many to run away with the honor of best picture, Brokeback Mountain was edged out for the biggest award of the night by Crash.

Brokeback went into the 78th annual Academy Awards with eight nominations, the most for any film. As the evening of March 5, 2006 came to a close, however, just three of those nods materialized into statuettes. Ang Lee picked up his first best director win, Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana earned best adapted screenplay for their take on Annie Proulx’s “Brokeback Mountain,” and Gustavo Santaolalla won best original score.

Now seen by some as one of the biggest misses in Oscar history, the Crash win came as a shock to critics and fans alike. Nominated for six awards, the small-budget drama about race relations in L.A. won best original screenplay for Paul Haggis and Robert Moresco, and best film editing for Hughes Winborne, in addition to best picture.

“Did the Hollywood-centric themes of race and isolation in Crash, along with a cast stocked with likable actors and actresses such as Matt Dillon and Sandra Bullock, cause Los Angeles-dwelling Academy members to favor the movie?” SFGate questioned immediately following the win. “Did the almost unending media drumbeat for Brokeback Mountain cause the film to peak in Academy voting-member popularity too early, a scenario exactly opposite that of 2005 winner Million Dollar Baby, which quietly slipped into theaters in December and benefited from a concentrated barrage of last-minute hype? – Or is Hollywood really not as liberal as the right-wingers make it out to be, but instead filled with aging Academy voters who just weren’t ready to support a love story about two gay men?”

Said love story famously featured Jake Gyllenhaal as Jack Twist and the late Heath Ledger as Ennis Del Mar. Then still a boundary-pushing movie despite the recent year, Brokeback made headlines for its sex scene and its deep portrayal of an intimate same-sex relationship.

“Sometimes you win by losing, and nothing has proved what a powerful, taboo-breaking, necessary film Brokeback Mountain was more than its loss Sunday night to Crash in the Oscar best picture category,” wrote the Los Angeles Times at the time. “Despite all the magazine covers it graced, despite all the red-state theaters it made good money in, despite (or maybe because of) all the jokes late-night talk show hosts made about it, you could not take the pulse of the industry without realizing that this film made a number of people distinctly uncomfortable… In the privacy of the voting booth, as many political candidates who’ve led in polls only to lose elections have found out, people are free to act out the unspoken fears and unconscious prejudices that they would never breathe to another soul, or, likely, acknowledge to themselves. And at least this year, that acting out doomed Brokeback Mountain.”

The upset was the finishing touch on what many saw as a lackluster ceremony for the Oscars.

“This was, by and large, a sedate and politic affair,” wrote The Guardian. “Host Jon Stewart’s monologue was gently satirical without ever straying into controversy, while the various winners seemed at pains to behave themselves. Even the distribution of awards proved to be unusually even-handed. There was no outright victor in the manner of a Titanic or a Lord of the Rings. Instead, Academy voters spread the riches between no fewer than four films. But when the dust has settled, it seems likely that the makers of Crash will be the most satisfied with the night’s result.

Even that gamble, however, was not quite bankable. Haggis, who both wrote and directed Crash has expressed since the 2006 show that he is hardly satisfied with said result.

“Was it the best film of the year? I don’t think so,” Haggis said in a 2015 interview with HitFix. “There were great films that year. Good Night and Good Luck, amazing film. Capote, terrific film. Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain, great film. And Spielberg’s Munich. I mean please, what a year.”

“Crash for some reason affected people, it touched people,” he continued. “And you can’t judge these films like that. I’m very glad to have those Oscars. They’re lovely things. But you shouldn’t ask me what the best film of the year was because I wouldn’t be voting for Crash, only because I saw the artistry that was in the other films. Now however, for some reason, that’s the film that touched people the most that year. So I guess that’s what they voted for, something that really touched them. And I’m very proud of the fact that Crash does touch you. People still come up to me more than any of my films and say, ‘That film just changed my life.’ I’ve heard that dozens and dozens and dozens of times. So it did its job there. I mean I knew it was the social experiment that I wanted, so I think it’s a really good social experiment. Is it a great film? I don’t know.”

Todas las películas ganadoras del Oscar a mejores efectos, en un vídeo

El clásico King Kong de 1933 incluía la mítica escena en la que el gorila escala el Empire State y combate contra un escuadrón de aviones de combate, e incluso una pelea con un dinosaurio. Nunca se llevó un Oscar: no existía, por aquel entonces, una estatuilla para los mejores efectos visuales. El premio fue creado seis años después, con Vinieron las lluvias como primera ganadora. Todas las películas que han sido galardonadas con el premio desde entonces han quedado recogidas en este vídeo del canal de YouTube Burger Fiction.

Además de las ganadoras del Oscar por los efectos especiales, el recopilatorio de Burger Fiction –pareja creativa formada por los editores Andy Schneider y Jonathan Britnell– incluye los galardones que fueron precursores a mejores efectos: en su primera edición, en 1928, la ganadora del premio a mejor película (Wings) recibió también un reconocimiento a mejores efectos mecánicos. Después, el premio desapareció hasta 1938, cuando Spawn Of The North (Lobos del norte) recibió un redundante "reconocimiento especial a sus efectos especiales".

En 1939 nació el Oscar a mejores efectos especiales, que premiaba películas que destacaban tanto en efectos visuales como sonoros. A partir del 64, el premio fue renombrado como Mejores efectos especiales visuales y, desde el 74, como mejores efectos. Esta es la lista completa de premiadas desde Wings hasta la ganadora del año pasado, Interestellar:

Premios Óscar: cantante transgénero nominado se pronuncia tras no ser invitado

Un nuevo cuestionamiento sobre la legalidad y justicia en los Premios Óscar hace tambalear su reputación. Se trata de Antony Hegarty conocido como ANOHNI, un cantate transgénero que forma parte de la nominación a Mejor canción por "Manta Ray", un tema que forma parte del soundtrack del documental "Racing Extinction".

Pues bien, la emblemática estrella indie, quien colabora en el tema junto al músico J. Ralph no ha recibido invitación a ser parte del show musical que se ofrecerá durante la ceremonia, a diferencia de otras celebridades como Lady Gaga, Sam Smith y The Weeknd, quienes tocarán sus temas nominados como parte de la noche de premiación.

De acuerdo a información vertida por Variety, esta elminación del listado de presentaciones se debería a "falta de tiempo", sin embargo el mismo Hegarty consultado sobre si se le invitó al evento asegura que en efecto no recibió invitación alguna.

Días más tarde y presionado por los medios Antony ha decido expresar su descontento con la Academia a través de su cuenta de Facebook con un mensaje en el que asegura que no acudirá a la gala del domingo como protesta por "un sistema de opresión social y reducción de oportunidades para los transexuales" en los Estados Unidos.Además la estrella indie cuestiona el valor de las nominaciones hechas por la Academia de Hollywood.

"No fui invitada porque soy relativamente desconocida en Estados Unidos, canto una canción sobre 'ecocidio' y eso podría evitar que se vendan espacios de publicidad (...) y sé además que no tengo el derecho automático a ser invitada", dice en su mensaje.

Esta grave acusación surge luego del ya conocido problema de racismo que artistas como Jada Pinkett Smith y Spike Lee han denunciado abiertamente.Los Premios Óscars se llevarán a cabo el próximo domingo 28 de febrero.

Oscars: Vice President Joe Biden to Introduce Lady Gaga Performance

She's nominated for best original song for "Til It Happens To You" from the documentary 'The Hunting Ground.'

Vice President Joe Biden will attend the Oscars on Sunday and introduce Lady Gaga's performance of "Til It Happens to You," an administration official confirms to The Hollywood Reporter.

The singer is nominated for best original song for her and Diane Warren's composition from the documentary The Hunting Ground, about campus sexual assault.

Biden is a longtime advocate against sexual assault and domestic violence and the author of the 1994 Violence Against Women Act and will use the opportunity to call on everyone watching to visit to take the pledge to stand up, speak out and help change the culture around sexual assault. Biden has been one of the main advocates for the "It's On Us" campaign, which asks people to pledge to to recognize that sex without consent is assault, intervene instead of standing by if an act of sexual assault is taking place and create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

The video for Gaga's song included a link to the "It's On Us" website. The singer recently opened up about being raped as a teenager by a producer she was working with, speaking about the experience during a December New York Times panel to promote The Hunting Ground.

“Because of the way that I dress, and the way that I'm provocative as a person, I thought that I had brought it on myself in some way, that it was my fault," Gaga told the panel.

"I didn't tell anyone for, I think, seven years," she added. "I didn't know how to think about it. I didn't know how to accept it. I didn't know how not to blame myself, or think it was my fault. It was something that really changed my life. It changed who I was completely."

In the best original song category, Gaga and Warren are up against songs from The Weeknd ("Earned It" from Fifty Shades of Grey), Sam Smith ("Writing's On The Wall" from Spectre), David Lang ("Simple Song #3" from Youth) and J. Ralph and Anohni ("Manta Ray" from Racing Extinction).

Biden isn't the first sitting vice president to attend the Oscars. In 1931, then-Vice President Charles Curtis attended the 4th Academy Awards on President Herbert Hoover's behalf.

First lady Michelle Obama also appeared live via video at the 2013 Academy Awards, to present the award for best picture to Ben Affleck's Argo.

Last month, President Obama weighed in on the controversy surrounding the lack of diversity among this year's Oscar nominees, saying, as many people have, that the Oscars debate is a reflection of a larger issue and question about inclusion: "Are we making sure that everybody is getting a fair shot?"

Obama said the film industry should do the same thing as other businesses and "provide opportunity to everybody."

The vice president will attend the Oscars with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden.

Oscars 2016: Who Should Be Your Hot Date To The Academy Awards?

The Oscars are almost here which means it’s time to find a date for the big night! Take this QUIZ to find out if Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Gosling, or another hot actor is your perfect fit.

The good news? All four of these eligible bachelors are, in fact, eligible. Even Ryan Gosling, who is romantically linked to longtime girlfriend Eva Mendes, is still technically on the market thanks to the fact they aren’t married. (Er, at least as far as we know!)

No matter who your Oscar date ends up being, know this: you’ll have one of the hottest guys in the building on your arm, toasting champagne with you, and later escorting you to the most exclusive after parties in the world. Or maybe just a trip to In-N-Out before crashing on the couch together. Either way, you’re the real winner!

Tell us, HollywoodLifers — Which one of these Hollywood hotties did YOU get as your potential date to the Oscars? Do you agree with the answer? Comment below to let us know!

¡Los mejores momentos de la #AlfombrarojaE! de los Oscars 2015! (Video + Fotos)

Estos son los episodios que pasarán a la historia. La #AlfombrarojaE! más glamorosa del año está repleta de las más grandes estrellas de Hollywood, por lo que es seguro que siempre nos dejará momentos épicos. Y este año no fue la excepción. Diseños increíbles, raros vestidos, confesiones, encuentros y desencuentros estuvieron a la orden durante la llegada de las celebridades al Teatro Dolby. FOTOS > #AlfombraRojaE! Los momentos más sublimes e infernales de los Premios Oscar 2015. Anna Kendrick fue la primera en llegar con un hermoso vestido color melocotón de Thakoon, le siguieron Rosamund Pike con un Givenchy, y la embarazada Keira Knightley con un romántico Valentino. Si hablamos de atuendos impactantes, sin duda Jennifer López está en el ranking con la creación de Elie Saab, mientras que Lady Gaga nos recordó su estrafalario estilo con un vestido Azzedine Alaïa y guantes rojos que la hicieron merecedora de miles de memes. Marion Cotillard arrastró también todas las miradas para tratar de descifrar su particular diseño de Dior. FOTOS > ¿El código de vestimenta de los Oscar 2015 exigía parecer un Muppet? El efusivo abrazo que se dieron Jennifer Aniston y Emma Stone (Con su vestido a lo Muppet) fue uno de nuestro momentos favoritos. Y es que la protagonista de Cake no le importó nada más que mostrar su cariño hacia su joven colega. En cuanto a esos momentos WTF! que se inmortalizaron en la alfombra roja de la entrega de los premios de la Academia de este año, otra vez el nombre de John Travolta vuleve a aparecer con su raro acercamiento y beso que le dio a Scarlett Johansson, quien por cierto ya tenía suficiente atención con su particular neuvo look.

¿Quiénes serán los ganadores del Oscar 2015? Conoce nuestras predicciones…

Ya la alfombra roja está lista para llenarse de glamour… Este domingo 22 de febrero, la Academia de las Artes Cinematográficas de Estados Unidos premiará a los mejor y más selecto del cine del 2014. En una ceremonia en la que el gran protagonista es la interrogación ya que, para muchos críticos especialistas en la materia, hay categorías muy importantes en las que hay dos o tres grandes favoritos, y la carrera puede tener un final de fotografía, por no decir que muchas categorías pudiesen estar, a estas alturas, bajo un “empate técnico”. ALFOMBRA ROJA > Preguntas y respuestas que debes revisar antes de la ceremonia de los Oscar A diferencia de ediciones anteriores, ésta, la número 87 de los Oscar es una competencia donde todos, o casi todos, tienen las mismas posibilidades de ganar. Algunos aseguran que todas las películas en competencia tienen la misma calidad, mientras otros aseveran que este año ninguna película se destacó sobre el resto… Aunque no tenemos una bola de cristal, podemos aventurarnos a dar nuestras predicciones… Y, aunque nuestro favoritismo va a destacar el trabajo de Latinoamericanos que están en competencia, evaluamos anteriores premiaciones y la opinión de expertos… Aquí están nuestros números. MEJOR PELÍCULA Ganará: Birdman. Podría ganar: Boyhood. Debería ganar: Birdman. La película del mexicano Alejandro González Iñárritu ha sido aplaudida de pie en todo el mundo. Su temática actual y el despliegue de un envidiable lenguaje cinematográfico, juegan a favor de Birdman. Boyhood también es gran favorita, pero creemos que Birdman se llevará la estatuilla. ALFOMBRA ROJA > Neil Patrick Harris ya está rompiendo las reglas este año como anfitrión de los Oscar (+ Foto) MEJOR ACTOR Ganará: Eddie Redmayne. Podría ganar: Michael Keaton. Debería ganar: Eddie Redmayne. El actor británico merece el Oscar por su increíble interpretación de Stephen Hawking en La teoría del todo. Todos los críticos han coincidido en que, aunque Michael Keaton hizo una maravillosa ejecución en Birdman, es Redmayne quien cuenta con todos los ingredientes necesarios para convencer a la Academia: Interpreta a un personaje de la vida real con dificultades físicas. FOTO > Neil Patrick Harris se convirtió en la estatuilla del Oscar. MEJOR ACTRIZ Ganará: Julianne Moore. Podría ganar: ¿Rosamund Pike? Debería ganar: Julienn Moore. El Oscar de mejor actriz ya tiene el nombre de Julianne Moore grabado. Es completamente improbable que la aplaudida actriz no suba a recibir la dorada estatuilla por Still Alice. ALFOMBRA ROJA > OMG! Los creadores de Let it go escribirán el show musical de Neil Patrick Harris para la ceremonia del Oscar MEJOR DIRECTOR Ganará: Alejandro González Iñárritu. Podría ganar: Richard Linklater. Merece ganar: Alejandro González Iñárritu. Sí, es cierto, el trabajo de Linklater es increíble ¡Filmar una película en 12 años! Pero definitivamente la Academia debe evaluar el resultado final y Birdman es esa película moderna, caótica, infartante e inteligente que hace del trabajo de Iñárritu una verdadera obra maestra y la película que merece todos los honores. FOTO > ¿Adam Levine mostrará sus abdominales en los Oscars? MEJOR ACTOR DE REPARTO Ganará, podría ganar y merece ganar: J. K. Simmons. No hay ningún tipo de dudas en esta categoría. La excelente ejecución del actor norteamericano de 60 años en Whiplash será premiada con el Oscar. MEJOR ACTRIZ DE REPARTO Ganará: Patricia Arquette. Podría ganar: Emma Stone. Merece ganar: Patricia Arquette. Patricia Arquette lleva toda la temporada de premios subiendo al escenario para agradecer el galardón, así que de seguro sucederá lo mismo en el Oscar… Aunque Emma Stone podría darle la pelea, sabemos que la actriz de Birdman solo le ganará a Arquette en la alfombra roja. MEJOR GUIÓN ORIGINAL Ganará: El gran hotel Budapest. Podría ganar: Birdman. Merece ganar: Birdman o El gran hotel Budapest. Algunos especialistas apuntan a que este premio lo ganará Wes Anderson por el libro de El gran hotel Budapest, porque es la manera en que la Academia no dejará con las manos vacías al realizador de 45 años. Su triunfo en el sindicato de escritores así lo confirma… Sin embargo, el guión de Birdman podría ser reconocido con la estatuilla. VIDEOS > Conoce los cortos animados nominados al Oscar. MEJOR GUIÓN ADAPTADO Ganará: Whiplash. Podría ganar: The imitation game. Debería ganar: Whiplash. Esta es una de las categorías más inciertas de la noche, sin embargo confiamos en que la política y los favoritismos quedarán de lado, y la calidad del producto final será el gran ganador. MEJOR PELÍCULA EXTRANJERA Ganará: Relatos Salvajes. Podría ganar: Ida o Leviathan. Merece ganar: relatos salvajes o Leviathan. Nada nos complacería más que celebrar junto a Argentina su triunfo, por ello apostamos a este increíble pel´cila que, con su originalidad y excelentes actuaciones, es una gran apuesta.

Common Counts ‘Selma’ Blessings at Global Green’s Pre-Oscar Party

Wednesday night drew a slew of eco-conscious stars to Hollywood hotspot Avalon for Global Green USA’s 12th annual pre-Oscar party, where nominee Common headlined the night with an energetic set that culminated in an electrifying performance of Best Song contender “Glory,” taken from Ava DuVernay’s “Selma.” While many viewers remain outraged by “Selma’s” lack of awards recognition — especially the snubs for DuVernay’s direction and star David Oyelowo’s performance as Martin Luther King, Jr. — Common preferred to focus on the positives during his performance, telling the lively crowd, “We’re nominated for Best Picture, y’all — we’re blessed.” “Twilight” alum Ashley Greene and comedian Theo Von hosted the environmentally friendly event, which also featured musical performances from Jimmy Demers, Gary Wright and Makana, along with a live auction and sustainable dinner courtesy of Chef Kai Loebach, including a kale and sprout salad; salmon and farmers market vegetable curry entrees; and mason jar carrot cake parfait. Among the green-minded attendees were Maggie Grace, Lamorne Morris, Amy Smart, Cheryl Tiegs, Matt Walsh, Billy Zane, Alysia Reiner, Missi Pyle, and Fran Drescher. The evening promoted sustainability with recycled products and seed paper wristbands that could be planted and grown into wildflowers or herbs after use.
