Emmys 2012: HBO, Fueled by Game of Thrones, and CBS Lead Early Winners; Smash Pulls Upset

Emmys 2012: HBO, Fueled by Game of Thrones, and CBS Lead Early Winners; Smash Pulls Upset
If this year’s Creative Arts Emmys took place in Westeros, HBO would’ve easily ascended to the Iron Throne.

Fueled by its original series Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, with a little love thrown at the Clive Owen-Nicole Kidman movie Hemingway & Gellhorn to boot, the pay cabler walked away from the evening with 17 total wins, including six for Thrones alone. (Last year, the fantasy saga grabbed gold just twice, even including at the Big Show.)

CBS placed a solid second with 13 wins, including five total for its coverage of the Grammys and Tonys, plus a pair for,

Oscars To Stay At Hollywood & Highland In Newly Named Dolby Theatre

Oscars To Stay At Hollywood & Highland In Newly Named Dolby Theatre
Exclusive: Just as Deadline predicted, the Academy Awards are staying put at Hollywood & Highland for the next 20 years in the former Kodak Theatre now named the Dolby Theatre, sources tell me. Kodak filed for bankruptcy in January and was only halfway through a 20-year rights deal when it pulled out just before this year’s Academy Awards. (Media outlets were asked to refer to the venue as Hollywood & Highland Center during the Oscarcast). The Oscars are the theatre’s marquee tenant, and the Academy’s lease with Cim was going to be up ahead of the 2014 Academy Awards. Details are now here: Hollywood (May 1, 2012) — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Cim Group announced today that the Academy Awards® will remain in Hollywood under a new 20-year deal. Concurrently, in a separate agreement, Dolby Laboratories, Inc and Cim announced a 20-year agreement to name the Dolby Theatre™ — the

Academy Sets Date for Next Year's Oscars
The 85th Academy Awards will air on Sunday, Feb. 24th, per an announcement from the Academy on Wednesday. Nominations will go out on Jan. 14, and the show will once again reside at Hollywood and Highland -- though Kodak's name is now off the theater. There have long been rumors the Academy would move up the show's date, but 2013's telecast will take place on the last Sunday in February, just like this year.  The Oscars will introduce online voting for the first time this year, which some thought would clear the way

4 Ways to Fix the Oscars

  • Cinelinx
The 84th Annual Academy Awards have wrapped up and the general consensus from most people is: it was okay. Personally, though, I hate that the standard for judging what should be the biggest event in the film industry, is by how it 'sucked less' than the year before. This should be an amazing and fun event for all people who are passionate about film, not just those who work in it. The show has been such a bore though, so I've thought of a few ways to fix the Oscars, and bring them back to where they should be.

Lose the Pretension

I was telling my cohort on Tmp Sunday night it's sad that the biggest event of our industry (film) is something I can't stand to really watch. I do because I feel like I should, but it's been a very long while since I've enjoyed the show. One

Steve Martin Vs. Gwyneth Paltrow Is Hollywood’s Greatest Rivalry

Twas only 3 days ago that all of Hollywood waxed and Spanxed and groomed in preparation for The 84th Annual Academy Awards, the movie industry’s complimentary 3-hour-long Thai Massage for Harvey Weinstein. And on this fabled eve, two luminaries took the time out of their busy “casual stroll” schedule to pose for a photograph together: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and writer-Bowfinger star Steve Martin. And the two even tweeted the photo, albeit with very different sentiments. Gwyneth loves her life; Steve hates it. Looks like somebody still hasn’t unsubscribed from the Goop newsletter! And sure, Steve’s kind of being a d*ck about this… but also the best? I mean she deserves it right? I’m genuinely trying to figure out if I dislike Gwyneth or if I just envy the fact that she can wear a white dress without looking like Pizza the Hut. (via Gawker)

Oscars viewing figures up 4% despite mixed reviews for Billy Crystal

Viewing figures for 2012 Oscars up despite Twitter criticism of host's controversial 'blackface' sketch

Viewing figures for Sunday's Oscars ceremony were up by an estimated 4% compared to last year's show, despite mixed reviews for Billy Crystal's ninth stint as host.

Early predictions suggest that ABC's three-hour broadcast drew 39.3 million viewers, compared to 37.9 million for Anne Hathaway and James Franco's widely derided tenure in 2011. However, it appears likely that viewers were older than for last year's event, reflecting 63-year-old Crystal's veteran status. Nevertheless, ABC said it was the second-largest TV audience for the Academy Awards since 2007 and pointed out that the show retained all of its 2011 audience in the coveted 18-49 year-old age group.

Crystal's performance as host has come in for criticism, with many commentators labelling it safe and bland. Controversy, in particular, continues to rage over the comic's decision to appear in blackface as Hollywood legend Sammy Davis

What’s Next for the Academy Award Winners?

  • Fandango
The 84th Annual Academy Awards have wrapped, officially concluding the 2011 movie year. (Yes, I’m aware that we’re already two full months into 2012, but the Academy moves slower than we’d prefer.) As expected, The Artist -- Michel Hazanavicius’ ode to Hollywood’s Golden Age -- took home the evening’s top honors, claiming best picture, director and actor for the effervescent Jean Dujardin. The remaining acting trophies were divided up between the legendary Meryl Streep (for The Iron Lady), Octavia Spencer (for The Help), and the iconic Christopher Plummer, whose win for Beginners makes him our oldest actor to win an Oscar. But enough looking back. Let’s project forward. Let’s figure out when you’ll be able to see these worthy...

Oscar Skinny: Angelina Jolie And Other Actresses We Want To Feed

While we totally enjoyed the silly way Angelina Jolie insisted on posing with her leg at last night’s Oscars — and the Twitter stir her leg caused all through the night — many of you were more alarmed than amused. Is she really able to stand and walk around on legs skinnier than our arms? Did she give all her food away to war refugees? We’re not completely sure of the normally slender actress was actually thinner than usual last night, or if we’re just not used to seeing that much of her bared leg against the stark contrast of all that Versace velvet. But yeah, there were a bunch of actresses we’d like to feed sandwiches to right about now. Somehow, we doubt they partook in that popcorn that was passed out in the Kodak, much less the 3-D desserts Wolfgang Puck cooked up for the Governor’s Ball.

Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer Continue Sister Act At The Oscars

Music Videos - Free Music Videos

There’s little we hate more than the way rumors of catfighting on the set plagues every TV show or movie that features an ensemble of women. As if no one can believe that any room of ladies inevitably turns into a scene from Mob Wives. That’s just one of the reasons we love the way this awards season has proved that the opposite was the case with the casts of Bridesmaids and The Help. Before she picked up her Best Supporting Actress Oscar last night, Octavia Spencer made it clear that she never wants to consider her colleagues “rivals” of any kind.

“I’m actually not competing,” Spencer told VH1 News on the red carpet. “I’ve got Janet McTeer who gave a brilliant performance. Melissa McCarthy, our dear friend, gave a brilliant performance. Jessica Chastain, a good friend, and Berenice Bejo.

Update: Billy Crystal-Hosted Oscars Watched By 39.3 Million, Up From Last Year

Nikki Finke: Live-Snarking The Oscars Update 11:30 Am: The 84th Annual Academy Awards drew 39.3 million viewers in Live+Same Day. That is up 4% from last year’s viewership and the second-most-watched Oscar ceremony in the past five years, behind the 2010 show where The Hurt Locker defeated blockbuster Avatar. Among adults 18-49, last night’s Oscar telecast (11.7 rating) was even with last year, an impressive feat given that that this year’s host Billy Crystal is almost 64, while last year’s show was hosted by twenty- and thirtysomethings James Franco and Anne Hathaway.

Oscar Men: Pharrell, Uggie And Other Guys Who Stepped It Up

“She’s so gorgeous!” “She’s too thin!” “I love her hair! “Is she pregnant?” “What was her stylist thinking?” Yes, most of our commentary about Oscar fashion revolves around the women in attendance. The lovely ladies of Hollywood always steal the show on the red carpet, but we want to give the men a chance to shine. While some guys just slap on a penguin suit and call it a day, a few put a little extra thought into their attire, and for that, we applaud them.

Keeping the swag level high, P.Diddy told us he went for a custom-made suit from London. Interior designer/talk-show host Nate Berkus has impeccable taste that clearly translates to his sense of fashion. And Nate was kind enough to let us in on the reasoning behind his fashion splurge: “When you’re 5-8″, you don

The 84th Annual Academy Award Winners

The 84th Annual Academy Awards ended up being one of the most entertaining Academy Award shows that I've seen in years, even though films I wanted to win didn't. I was rooting for Martin Scorsese and Hugo this year, but I knew that The Artist would end up taking home a majority of the big awards. In the end, each one of these films took home 5 Awards, Hugo took home the more technical ones though. I think it was a pretty easy year to predict the winners.

It was great to see Billy Crystal back up on stage; he really did a great job bringing light, fun entertainment that everyone could enjoy. Crystal was awesome and one of the best parts of the show. The guy is classic comedy. He helped bring back everything that the Oscars should be.

Here's the full list of nominees with the winners in bold.

Early Oscars ratings show slight increase

Early Oscars ratings show slight increase
Did Billy Crystal rescue the Oscars?

Even with few box-office heavyweights in contention for top categories, early ratings for Sunday night’s 84th Annual Academy Awards telecast show a slight rise from last year.

ABC’s preliminary household ratings suggest a 4 percent gain in Oscars viewership from 2011.

That could easily shift, however, when the national ratings come in. We’ll update this post with firm viewership numbers in the next couple hours… refresh for the latest info.

In the meantime, here’s how the Oscars have fared in recent years:

– 2011: 37.9 million viewers / 11.8 adult demo rating (King’s Speech)

– 2010:

Oscars 2012 Winners List & Recap

The 2012 Oscars ceremony proved to be pretty predictable, as the heavily-favored frontrunner The Artist ended up being the big winner of the night. French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius’ critically-beloved homage to classic Hollywood black-and-white silent cinema walked away with five Academy Awards in total, including prizes for Hazanavicius as director and Jean Dujardin as lead actor.

Martin Scorsese’s own love letter to the magic of classic filmmaking, the 3D effects-heavy Hugo, tied The Artist with 5 Oscar wins total. That movie still technically “came in second place” as its wins were all in technical categories (Art Direction, Cinematography, etc.) and not for its thematic elements or performance quality.

Host Billy Crystal’s “requisite” video parody of the 2012 Best Picture nominees and popular blockbuster titles – along with his tongue-in-cheek musical number – ...
