Is Dustin Hoffman going to be nominated for director?

Last night, the 35th annual Kennedy Center Honored Dustin Hoffman among others. We are very proud of Dustin Hoffman. His new film and directorial debut,”Quartet,” is doing very well and it has been recognized by many organizations.
Dustin Hoffman has long harbored a desire to direct a film, and having only ever done so on stage, he can officially call himself a Director this year with the release of his first feature film “QUARTET.” Debuting at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, “QUARTET” stars Dame Maggie Smith, Sir Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins, Billy Connolly, and Sir Michael Gambon. Based on the play by Ronald Harwood, the film follows four retired opera singers as they attempt to put on a concert to save their beloved home — and celebrate Verdi’s birthday in the process. Of his experience with the first time director, Connolly explains, “Dustin’s a brilliant director because he’s such a brilliant actor, so he directs like an actor.” “QUARTET” is due out in limited release on December 28.
With a career spanning more than five decades in front of the camera, Dustin Hoffman is one of the world’s most accomplished and highly regarded actors. Garnering 2 Academy Awards (and 7 nominations), 5 Golden Globes, 4 BAFTAs and an EMMY, Hoffman’s impressive resume boasts such critically acclaimed and commercial hits as “THE GRADUATE,” “ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN,” “RAINMAN,” “MIDNIGHT COWBOY,” “KRAMER VS. KRAMER,” “TOOTSIE,” “WAG THE DOG,” “MEET THE FOCKERS,” and “LAST CHANCE HARVEY. ”

Last October, the 2012 Hollywood Film Awards also honored Richard Gere for career achievement; Bradley Cooper for actor; Marion Cotillard for actress; Robert De Niro for supporting actor; Amy Adams for supporting actress; Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman and the cast of “Argo;” John Hawkes for breakout performance; David O.

NO MORE BULLYING: 13 million kids get bullied every year

HollywoodNews.com: Today is Twitter Tuesday! Dedicate your Tweets to Stop Bullying. NO MORE BULLYING: 13 million kids get bullied every year. It’s time to take a stand. RT to STOP Bullying. #BULLYMOVIE
“BULLY,” the highly anticipated anti-bullying documentary (in theaters March 30th), has sparked a protest and now a movement, as a number of major movie stars, theater owners, and Members of Congress have joined forces to protest the film’s R rating. In a clear triumph for the film, Gerry Lopez, CEO of AMC Theaters, one of the most prominent theater chains in the world, spoke out against the R-Rating, saying, “To ‘automatically default’ BULLY is a mistake. Automatic default to a rating, a category, a genre… doesn’t matter, is a mistake. The message, the movie and its social relevance defy that kind of formulaic, conventional thinking. AMC will show this movie, and we invite our guests to engage in the dialogue its relevant message will inevitably provoke.”
Mr. Lopez is one of almost 300,000 people to get behind a petition started by a junior in high school named Katy Butler. Ms. Butler, who has experienced severe bullying herself, started the petition on Change.org after the MPAA ruled by one vote that “Bully” should receive an R rating due to six swear words. When Mr. Lopez asked one of his sons about the film, curious as to whether the debate had reached the demographic the film is geared toward, his son had already signed onto Ms. Butler’s petition.
The support from Hollywood has been on a steady increase since Katy Butler launched her petition. On March 20, Meryl Streep and her daughter Mamie Gummer will co-host a screening of the film with and David Boies, one of the two attorneys responsible for overturning Proposition 8 in California, and his daughter, Mary Boies. The screening will be held in New York City.
Johnny Depp has also signed on to lend his support; Ellen DeGeneres has devoted time to the film on her television show; and in the sports arena, Drew Brees, quarterback of the New Orleans Saints, has also added his voice to the movement. Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper came on board as news anchor partners, hosting a screening in New York City last week, that was presented by Bing, the search engine from Microsoft. In addition to the screening in NYC, Bing will also be supporting the [...]

Alec Baldwin skips out on Emmys with his skit cut out

HollywoodNews.com: Alec Baldwin is a TV staple with his current role on ’30 Rock,’ but apparently he wasn’t so crazy about his pre-taped skit being cut from the Emmys.
Baldwin reportedly taped something for the opening, but FOX was apparently not happy with it as he took a dig at parent company News Corp and president Rupert Murdoch’s phone hacking scandal, states UsMagazine.com. Baldwin did take to Twitter about his disappointment over the cut: “I did a short Emmy pretape a few days ago. Now they tell me NewsCorp may cut the funniest line. #NewsCorphumorlessaswellascorrupt.”
However, he wasn’t exactly completely bitter over the matter as he reportedly didn’t attend the Emmys in part because he was going to Tony Bennett’s birthday party in New York.
Do you wish they would have shown the skit?

Jon Hamm on why he looks so good in a tuxedo

HollywoodNews.com: Breaking News! “Mad Men” Emmy nominee Jon Hamm recently told us his secrets for formal wear attire. Why does he look so good in a tuxedo, we were prodded to ask him: “Well, it’s mostly because a team of professionals staples me into that thing and makes sure it’s pressed. I have a lot of tuxedos. I have too many tuxedos.
A person shouldn’t have so many tuxedos.” Does he use shirt studs, cufflinks, cummerbunds? “U try to keep it kind of simple because when you put those things in the equation they tend to malfunction. Cufflinks are all right. But studs, a drag. Cummerbunds? Drag. Because they’re not situated right. Suspenders? That’s an easy enough fix.” And bow ties? Does he wear a clip on? Or do a four in one on his own? “I try to tie it myself, and then I fail, and someone ties it for me.” He adds, with a grin: “I can tie a a regular tie.”
