Last week John Goodman was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, yes surprisingly he didn’t already have one. I thought this was amazing news to see after I had just caught up with The Big Lebowski over the weekend. As Jeff Bridges brings back The Dude to honour Goodman, incredible stuff! My love for Bridges is certainly still growing!
The story surrounds an Irish gang who are looking to buy guns, but everything goes wrong in the abandoned warehouse and it turns into a shootout and battle to survive.
A team of scientists along with members of the Army to explore an unidentified island in the Pacific. But is it really just an adventure to see an island, or does something else reside on it?
I thought I would put together a new list this year for what I saw in 2016 (here) with the standout female performances of the year, this is going to combine the whole leading and supporting roles. Just what I have been really impressed with!
Let’s take a look at who made the list . . . (more…)
As the BFI London Film Festival starts tonight I thought it would be a good idea to put a post together to preview some of the films that will be making an appearance at the festival and the different Gala/UK Premiere’s happening over the next 11 days. It really is a fantastic event that takes over the many cinemas in Leicester Square with plenty of star acting power in attendance.
I always totally love these photos of the four winners in the acting categories mainly because they are always organised in exactly the same way and look great!
Brie Larson for Room
I was really hoping for an upset with this one as didn’t think Larson was anything special in Room massively overrated performance.
Always a very interesting award highlight the best leading performances by an actress if they have not been put into the supporting category! Honestly it happens every year, although before looking at each performance individually I will admit that I think this is a pretty poor year for who has been nominated for the leading role performances.
Ahead of the BAFTA awards tonight I thought I would quickly put together my predictions of what I think will win and what I would like to win. I have kept it to the bigger awards and only missed one of the films that are nominated for Best Film and Best British Film!
