Sandra Bullock may set a record as the first person to win a Razzie for worst actress and an Oscar for best actress in the same weekend. The coveted Golden Rasberrys are given out the day before the Oscars to recognize the worst in motion pictures. The nominations are for The Blind Side and All About Steve. Can you guess which is for the Oscar and which is for the Razzie? Sandra seems to be a good sport about it, stating in a recent interview that if she wins the Razzie, she will show up.
So apparently the industry thinks that the box office success of Avatar is greatly attributed to the film being 3D. Though I don’t disagree, something tells me Cameron might be the only guy that can successfully execute this. Like it or not, here is the list of upcoming films that will be in 3D.
The final two Harry Potter films Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore Clash of the Titans Guardians of Ga’Hoole
As you can see from the earlier post, Oscar nominations are in. James Cameron is predictably up against his ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow, for Best Director. Cameron and Bigelow were married from 1989-1991. Despite the title of this post, Cameron and Bigelow remain close friends and seem to be rooting for one another. In fact, Cameron even stated,”if [Kathryn] wins, I’ll be cheering.” Wow, how Demi and Bruce of them.
Apparently Hollywood doesn’t have a sense of humor. Who knew? When James Cameron won the Oscar for Titanic in 1998 and declared himself “king of the world,” no one was amused. In hindsight, even Cameron himself seems to regret it. Is anyone aware that this was an actual line from Titanic? I think it’s time to lighten up a little.
For some reason inflation seems to be the best kept secret when it comes to setting film records. While Avatar might have grossed an insane amount of money, it doesn’t even come close to Gone With the Wind, which would have earned 1.5 billion dollars domestically with today’s ticket prices. When Gone With the Wind was released in 1939, the Governor declared a state holiday, and tickets were 40 times the regular cost.

For everyone out there wondering what the CW’s meaning of “new episodes coming soon” is, I am here to clear things up. Gossip Girl will not air original episodes until March. Apparently the time slot had to be cleared for Life Unexpected.
