The 83rd Academy Awards will be airing tonight on ABC at 730 CST and I will be bringing you the winners as they are presented live (you’ll have to refresh the page throughout the night if you stay with me). I’ll also be putting in my two cents and just trying to enjoy my night as this will be a pretty exciting awards show. Not only do we get the first co-ed co-hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco, but the youngest ever too. I am also excited to see what Banksy will have in store if he will crash the award show or not.

The 2011 British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards have passed, but I found this great art from the event brochure that showcases illustrations from Adam Simpson. Last year’s best picture nominee art was created by Travis Coburn and can be seen here. To view the great simplistic images for the BAFTA best picture nominees keep reading after the jump!
Lacking the opportunity to gain screeners or press screenings makes it slightly more difficult to fit in the time or budget to see every movie that comes out within a year. Sometimes you just have to buck up and watch a lot of damn movies; that’s what the Internet is for. With less than one week until the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, I felt that it is my duty to share with you my thoughts on last years motion pictures.
The year was 2010 and a whole lot of nothing was going on in the cinema world; there were the really good and then there were the really bad. Hardly any movies in 2010 were sub-par, but to create a list of the best was really hard to determine. So what films did I love and what films did I hate? Find out after the break to see who made my best and worst movie lists of 2010!
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will premier live tonight on NBC from 8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel hosted again by Ricky Gervais. If you are unfortunate for some reason to not have TV, I’ll update you on the events and the winners and give you my opinion if that is anything of value. Catch the live updates when the Globes go live later after the break!
If you have not had the benefit to witness Black Swan yet, then you are missing out on one of the best films of the year. Before its wide release, the people at The Soundworks Collection released an eight minute featurette dedicated the sound design of Black Swan. Sound designer Craig Henighan was interviewed for the feature and one would suspect that you would find this on the special features when it is released on DVD. It is an interested featurette with a bit of easter eggs that you may have unheard while watching the film. Slight spoilers are lie ahead if you dare to watch the video. Catch it after the jump!
My anticipation of this film cannot contain itself, but alas there is not a theater in sight within 60 minutes of me where I can go see it. When it gets closer I will be there in a heartbeat. But until then, you can go after the jump to let your eyes witness this beautiful international trailer thanks to Glamour!
A great featurette for Darren Aronofosky’s Black Swan recently released to InConnection. In this short four minute section, we get a taste of what Aronofosky and production designer Thérèse DePrez were thinking when it came time to set the tone of the atmosphere in which the actors would interact with. The featurette hints on how colors and props were integrated throughout the film encompassing story arc and character development. It’s a neat little feature that you should watch embedded after the break!
