Ben Affleck: I wasn't 'entitled' to Oscars nomination

Feb 25 2013, 4:20am CST | by

Ben Affleck was ''disappointed'' not to be nominated for the Best Director Oscar - until he saw who else had failed to make the shortlist.

The actor-turned-director - whose movie 'Argo' picked up the Best Picture prize at last night's (24.02.13) ceremony - quickly accepted he was not ''entitled'' to the honour, but admits he was upset when the nominations were first announced.

He said: ''Naturally I was disappointed, but when I look at the directors who weren't nominated, Paul Thomas Anderson or Kathryn Bigelow - who's just amazing - Tom Hooper, Quentin Tarantino, these are all directors who I admire enormously. It was just a very tough year.

''You know what? You're not entitled to anything.''

And Ben - who was in the audience to see 'Life of Pi' filmmaker Ang Lee pick up the best Director trophy - admitted he just felt ''honoured'' to be at the ceremony, particularly after scooping Best Picture.

He added backstage at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles: ''I'm honoured to be here, I'm honoured to be among these extraordinary movies, and I'm really, really honoured to win an Academy Award.''

Argo also triumphed in the 'Best Adapted Screenplay' and 'Best Editing' categories.

Jason Momoa Dishes Aquaman: “I Don't Have to be Quiet Anymore”

Oct 20 2014 10:45am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

We’ve thought Jason Momoa would be Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for some time, but it was never truly announced. Whenever the actor was asked about, he was coy with his response and it was one of the great mystery of the DC Comics-Warner Bros. world. But now that DC Comics and Warner Bros. have announced a superhero slate through 2020 that includes a solo Aquaman movie, Momoa is free to not only admit that he is Aquaman, but he can share his ...

Robert Downey Jr. Took Home the ‘Avengers’ ‘A’ After Asking For It as a Joke

Oct 20 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: slash film

It’s not unheard of for actors to take home souvenirs from their projects — whether by stealing props from the set, buying them from the production company, or receiving them as gifts. But Robert Downey Jr.‘s memento from The Avengers definitely ranks up there in terms of uniqueness. Downey reportedly received the 30-foot-tall “A” from the Stark Tower shot at the end of the 2012 movie, after asking for i ...

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice: Is Jena Malone Playing Robin?

Oct 20 2014 7:30am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

When it comes to rumors about specific casting on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we take everything with a grain of salt. Sure, we are intrigued by the idea of The Flash in Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice. But, a female Robin? It could happen, according to a local Detroit television station (where Zack Snyder’s movie is shooting). This rumor is compounded by the fact that The Hollywood Reporter is now saying that Catching Fire sta ...
