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.

Aug 21 2014 11:11am CDT | Source: beyond hollywood

It feels like Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has been shooting for years, but maybe that’s just because “Man of Steel” was delayed. In any case, it looks like production is in full swing now, and you’ve seen a lot of images of Ben Affleck in his own suit (suit and tie, ahem) running around, but here’s your latest and best look at star Henry Cavill in the Superman suit, straight from the set as snapped by the paps: Thanks to MTV Splash Page (@mtvsplashpage), check out a ...

‘Batman V Superman’ Set Photo Reveals Colorful New Supersuit

Aug 20 2014 7:47pm CDT | Source: Screen Rant

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and that has certainly been the case with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Boasting a brand new take on Batman and Wonder Woman, it’s been known for some time that the film would also feature a change in color and style from the Superman suit debuted in Man of Steel. Despite Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill’s best attempts to keep the new suit under wraps, the first full-color image of it has appeared online. Although Snyder has already revea ...

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Set Image Reveals a Different Look at Henry Cavill’s New Costume

Aug 20 2014 3:47pm CDT | Source: Collider

Judging by some of the reaction to this picture, it appears as though there are some slight shifts away from the established Man of Steel look in Henry Cavill's costume for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Not that I can tell.  I've seen Man of Steel exactly once and don't really plan on seeing it again to see if I can spot some minute differences.  This set image (obviously) adds more ...

New 'Batman v Superman' Set Photos Prompt Superhero-Sized Speculation

Aug 20 2014 3:04pm CDT | Source: yahoo

While McNairy has talked openly about working with director Zack Snyder on the film, he’s been mum about whom he might be playing. So it’s possible that Snyder, in building his own Justice League, will ignore the fact that there’s a Flash TV series starting this fall, and introduce the character separately the film world. If so, perhaps McNairy’s shooting a scene in which Barry Allen has to take off somewhere without ...

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Photo: Henry Cavill As Superman on Set!

Aug 20 2014 2:50pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Hot on the heels of that photo we posted yesterday from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that has us thinking that The Flash is the film, we've got one of the co-title character... the Man of Steel himself! Someone snapped a pic of Henry Cavill in a new-and-improved Superman suit walking to shoot a scene for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on the Detroit set. And thankfully, they posted it on Twitter. The suit is slightly different than the one you see when you watch M ...

Is The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

Aug 19 2014 2:04pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Superhero Report has posted a Twitpic that has us thinking that The Flash will be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Given the title, we all know that the Man of Steel sequel is more of a set-up for a Justice League movie than a true follow up to the film that introduced us to Henry Cavill as Superman. We know that Cavill’s Superman is joined by Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and a serious rumor that Jason Mamoa is Aquaman. We also believe t ...
