Leonardo DiCaprio: Who’s the most overdue for an Academy Award?

A lot of times during the months directly following the Academy Awards telecast, people talk about who’s overdue for an Oscar nomination, but I think the more interesting conversation is to discuss who’s already been nominated repeatedly by the Academy but has yet to win an Oscar. It’s one thing to fight for that first nod, or to have a nom to your credit but nothing else, but what of the people who’ve been cited with nominations multiple times by Oscar voters but never seem to make it to the finish line? Recently, I was thinking about just that, and actually came up with a list of some of the folks in the industry that are most overdue for a win.
Below you’ll find a group of ten previously nominated by the Academy that I think should have won by now. They consist of actors, actresses, filmmakers, and technical craftsmen, all of whom define the word “overdue” to me. There are many others, like Ridley Scott for example, but I limited it to ten. Take a look:
10. David O. Russell- With five nominations to his credit now, Russell is undoubtedly on a hot streak right now, and it’s firmly entrenched him as someone due for a win. The Academy clearly is enamored with him, so it really seems to only be a matter of time now. Not everyone is thrilled with that prospect, but I’m not among them. He’s more than deserving at this point in his career.
9. Julianne Moore – A quartet of nods later, Moore is very high up on many lists of the actresses who desperately need an Oscar. I obviously don’t have her quite as high up on this list, but she’s clearly only one great role away from being on that stage accepting the statue. My guess is that it’ll be for a supporting performance, but time will ultimately tell there.
8. Christopher Nolan – Despite often snubbing Nolan in some key categories, the Academy has still cited him a trio of times, though without any sign of a win yet. They’ve notably kept him far away from the Best Director field, so when his first win comes, I suspect that it’ll be for a Screenplay category…that’s just a guess though. Perhaps Interstellar this year can do it for him?
7. Tom Cruise – There was a time when it was inconceivable to think that Cruise wouldn’t have [...]

Julianne Moore becomes new face of L’Oreal

HollywoodNews.com: Julianne Moore is about to be a little busier as she has been named the newest face of L’Oreal.
Moore will be the new Global Brand Ambassador for L’Oreal Paris starting in 2013, states UsMagazine.com. She will reportedly be involved in ads for the product Cellular Renaissance.
“I’m an actual user of the brand and it’s hard not to be. Every modern woman shops everywhere for beauty, but for me it’s mostly the airport or the drugstore. It’s nice to be promoting something that is accessible to everyone,” Moore said about the partnership.
Do you like her as a choice for L’Oreal?

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield in “Death of a Salesman”

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: The greatest American play? Quite possibly Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman,” set in 1949 and revived last night on Broadway in a production that is outstanding. Mike Nichols directed and reinvented Miller’s classic, with Philip Seymour Hoffman as Willy Loman, Andrew Garfield (the new movie Spider Man) as Biff, Linda Emonds as Willy’s wife Linda, and Finn Wittrock as Happy. This is a historic production, quite possibly the best ever (and there have been many great ones starring Dustin Hoffman, Brian Dennehy, Lee J. Cobb, George C. Scott). Thursday night’s star studded opening was the second time I’ve seen this production, and it’s only gotten more devastating, deep, emotional, and overwhelming. Philip Seymour Hoffman is our generation’s Jason Robards. He is perfection as Willy Loman in all aspects–from Willy’s wrestling with his past (the father and brother who left him) to his denial about more current events, and his increasing mental in capacities. PSH has an Oscar for “Capote” but this is his Tony Award. He cannot be missed.
The whole cast is spot on. Considering it’s a play about fathers and sons, I was particularly moved by Andrew Garfield’s father’s reaction to seeing his son as the angry ne’er do well, Biff. At the party following the opening night at Bryant Park Grill, Mr. Garfield and Andrew just kept hugging and crying. The cast is extremely worn out emotionally after each performance. Even last night Mike Nichols, who’s sat through every preview to give “notes,” told me he was overwhelmed. Arthur Miller’s famous actress sister, Joan Copeland, t0ld me it was the best production she’d seen since the original. Martin Short told me that Tom Hanks had seen it a few days ago and declared it “the best thing he’s ever seen, period.” Columbia Pictures’ Amy Pascal came to congratulate her upcoming Spider Man.
Scott Rudin produced this extravaganza, and it made for quite a glittering night. In the audience were Nichols and Diane Sawyer, Paul Simon, Barbara Walters (who came with David Geffen), Julianna Margulies, Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich, Catherine Keener, Amy Ryan, Spike Lee, Anjelica Huston, Meryl Streep and Don Gummer, and Garfield’s actress gf Emma Stone, Julia Roberts, plus “Saturday Night Live” star Bill Hader, who said he almost fainted when Nichols complimented his “SNL” work. It was kind of funny at one point seeing Streep, Gummer, Nichols, Sawyer and Huston all dining [...]

“The Big Lebowski” cast reunites in New York City

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi and select cast members from the Coen Brothers’ “The Big Lebowski” reunited in New York City Tuesday night in celebration of the film’s Blu-ray release.
After a screening of the film, the actors – joined by The Dude inspiration Jeff Dowd – conducted a lively Q-and-A that was covered on Twitter by those in attendance.

Among the topics covered were a proposed “Lebowski” sequel (it ain’t happening), the annual Lebowski Fest (the cast is baffled by its existence), “sex mail” requests for John Turturro’s character of Jesus, and more disturbing news.
If you have time, EW posted an archived LiveStream of the entire event. You can watch that HERE.

Julianne Moore talks about the red carpet being weird for everyone

HollywoodNews.com: Although many celebrities might seem confident on the red carpet, Julianne Moore thinks there are very few who are, including herself.
Moore revealed to ‘Health’ magazine that she always lacks confidence when walking down that famous carpet, states People. And Moore doesn’t think she is the only one who feels that way.
“I don’t know that there’s anybody who does. I mean, you don’t look around the red carpet thinking, ‘There’s a lot of confident people out here,’” Moore said about the situation.
Who do you think is confident on the red carpet?

Steve Carell ready for life after “The Office”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For those who haven’t seen last night’s “The Office” yet, skip ahead, as we’re about to drop a major spoiler.
Are you gone? I’m warning you. Leave until you’ve caught up with your DVR.
OK, so, Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott, proposed to girlfriend Holly (Amy Ryan) and announced his plans to follow her to Colorado. We already knew that Carell planned to leave the show at the end of this season, and it appears that the pieces are starting to move into place for life without Carell.
But don’t feel bad for the actor. He’ll have plenty of projects on his plate once he leaves “The Office” on April 28.
THR compiles the lengthy list of places you’ll next find the comedian. He’ll star alongside Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling and Julianne Moore (to name a few) in “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” which opens July 29. After that, Carell reportedly is attached to star in New Line’s magician comedy “Burt Wonderstone.”
Beyond that, it’s speculation, with Carell attached to or lined up to produce a handful of projects. The one of note would have to Mandate Pictures’ “Great Hope Springs” with Meryl Streep, which would have Carell playing a marriage therapist who “tries to help a middle-aged couple rekindle their relationship,” according to THR.
