Meryl Streep to present at Oscars

Feb 6 2013, 4:14am CST | by

Meryl Streep and Jean Dujardin will present at this year's Oscars.

The actors - who took the top acting prizes at last year's Academy Awards - will be joined by fellow acting award winners, Christopher Plummer and Octavia Spencer, in the annual tradition which sees the previous year's recipients usher in the new crop of winners.

Producers for the awards show, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said: ''We are honored to have Meryl, Octavia, Christopher and Jean, last year's Oscar winners in each of the acting categories, return to the Oscar stage.''

Meryl earned her third Oscar win in the Best Actress field for Margaret Thatcher biopic, 'The Iron Lady', at last year's ceremony. Meanwhile, Jean received his first nomination and win as Best Actor for French silent film 'The Artist'.

Canadian actor Christopher became the oldest person to win an Oscar, aged 82 at the time, for his Best Supporting Actor role in 'Beginners'. Octavia's win came for ensemble drama 'The Help' and marked the actress' first nomination and victory.

It was recently confirmed that Mark Wahlberg and animated teddy bear, Ted, from the movie of the same name, will also present at the ceremony. The film's director, Seth MacFarlane, will serve as the night's host.

‘Into the Woods’ Won’t Feature a New Stephen Sondheim Song After All

Aug 15 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Recently, we’ve had word that Disney’s adaptation of Into the Woods would differ from the original in a number of ways. Most of the changes didn’t sound too promising, but one we were actually looking forward to was a new song, penned by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine for the movie. Well, it turns out that’s not happening anymore. In a new interview, Rob Marshall confirmed that the tune had been cut from the film. If it’s any consolation, though, Marshall also clarifies th ...

The Giver Review: Does Dystopia Still Deliver?

Aug 15 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Bringing Lois Lowry’s Newbery Award winning The Giver to the big screen has been an almost two decade long effort. In hindsight, we wonder why -- given the fact that dystopian-set young adult novels are all the rage from The Hunger Games to Divergent and beyond. The Giver is finally in theaters and it features Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges leading the way, and a pair of up-and-co ...
