The SAG Award nominations were announced this morning and they were not without some shockers. The biggest shock of all was Emily Blunt’s performance in October’s The Girl on the Train being nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep, Annette Bening, and Emma Stone were seen as locks for nominations. With Amy Adams, Ruth Negga, and Isabelle Huppert also in contention, it was a big question…"23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations: Analysis"

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards for the films and television in the year ending in a few weeks.

As tickets went on sale for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a new TV spot was dropped. If you look closely at the 5 second mark, you’ll see a figure facing the Death Star.

Nicolas-Troyan, the first film’s visual effects supervisor,…"The Huntsman: Winter’s War Isn’t Worth Your Money"
