They’re going to try to make a deal in Cannes this week for a film called The Secret In Their Eyes, adapted from the Oscar winning Argentine film of the same name. Production will begin in Boston in the fall. Fresh off his first nomination, Chiwetel Ejiofor will play the lead, a retired spy who comes back into the game because he can’t forget about a case that he couldn’t close. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey was not a factor in the Best Actor category at the BAFTAs. So it was Chiwetel Ejiofor vs Leonardo DiCaprio. Chiwetel won. And I wish he could win at the Oscars on March 2. Because as I’ve already said and will repeat again: Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club is basically Matthew McConaughey in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, just 40 lbs lighter. Full Story

Chiwetel Ejiofor was nominated for Best Actor Oscar today. Cate Blanchett was nominated for Best Actress Oscar today. Here they are, posing together, at the AACTA Awards on the weekend. Will they be doing the same on March 2nd with their trophies in hand? Oh I hope so. The two favourites, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey, can kiss all the babies and shake all the hands they want to, but I hope in the end it’s Chiwetel. Full Story

Certain corners of the internet have been damp down there after seeing this photo of Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender getting down at the FOX after-party on Sunday night following the Golden Globes celebrating the Best Drama win for 12 Years A Slave. I would be damp if Chiwetel Ejiofor was in the shot. Full Story

12 Years A Slave – it’s the film everyone is calling the frontrunner for Best Picture. And the film that seems to be scaring off a few contenders. 12 Years screened at the New York Film Festival last night. Director Steve McQueen was there (and Madonna had to get in a photo with him) with star Chiwetel Ejiofor who has to be one of the five Best Actor nominees at this point, I mean he has to. Full Story

12 Years A Slave opens (limited) in a couple of weeks. It’s coming off big, BIG buzz in Telluride and then at TIFF where it was almost unanimously declared the frontrunner for Oscar, already. And already a few films are getting the f-ck out of its way. Still, there are several contenders that have time to build momentum, including David O Russell’s American Hustle and George Clooney’s Monuments Men so Brad Pitt’s starting early. Full Story

Check out Tom Hiddleston at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night in London. He looks GREAT. And you know what? Since I have been actively avoiding Tom’s Twitter account, and therefore spared from his exclamation points, Tom’s been holding steady lately, even higher than Tom Hardy. Then I watched this interview. Full Story

The first trailer for Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave is out and holy hell, you guys. A friend put it perfectly—this isn’t Oscar bait-y, this is Oscar win-y. Based on the true story of a man who was born free in the North and then kidnapped and sold into slavery, this is not Django Unchained and its wish fulfillment. Full Story

I love Michael Fassbender. I almost love him more than Ryan Gosling. I love him so much I never want to meet/see him for fear of him doing something to wreck my crush. I love him, shark smile and all. There’s no point to this, I just wanted to confess my extreme and unreasonable Fass-love.Remember that five minutes in Inglorious Basterds when The Fassbender and Brad Pitt were in the same scene? Remember how awesome it was? Well now we’re going to get two hours of that. Full Story
