Complete list of winners of the 88th Oscars!

Leonardo DiCaprio wins the Oscar! He can start doing mediocre movies now and the internet needs to find something else to nag about.

Chris Rock hosting the 88th Academy AwardsSo, Alejandro G. Inaritu is the third director in history to won the Oscar for directing in two consecutive years. Brie Larson as expected won the Oscar for actress in a leading role and Leonardo DiCaprio for best actor for his monumental role in The Revenant.

Spotlight was acknowledged as the best picture of the year. It comes of a little weird that the best picture won only one more Oscar, for best original screenplay.

You could say that this year the Oscars had no obvious and strong dominant winners, apart from Mad Max: Fury Road which won all technical awards. The Revenant and Spotlight were the other two movies to win multiple Oscars.

The final score in numbers:
Mad Max: Fury Road: 6 Oscars.
The Revenant: 3 Oscars.
Spotlight: 2 Oscars.

Fifty Shades of Grey and Fantastic Four worst movies of the year!

Just a day before the Oscars we get to see the worst movies of the year “acknowledged” at the Razzie Awards.

This year Fifty Shades of Grey (Box Office hit) and Fantastic Four (Box Office bomb) share the title for Worst Picture of the year.

Fifty Shades of Grey Worst Pciture RazzieFifty Shades of Grey also won the award for worst actor, worst actress and on screen combo for Jamie Dornan and Dacota Johnson. With the award for Worst Screenplay, which makes total of 5 Razzies.

Fantastic Four Worst Picture RazzieFantastic Four got the Worst Director Razzie (Josh Trank) and Worst Remake, Spin-off or Sequel, so it only has three Razzies on top of not making any money.

Eddie redmayne in Jupiter AscendingIt is interesting that Eddie Redmayne got the Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor for his role in Jupiter Ascending, while being nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor with big chances to win.

Jupiter Ascending was also nominated for Worst Director, Worst Picture, Worst Actress and Actor but got of easy with just one Razzie won.

The only positive award at the Golden Raspberries is The Redeemer award, which is given to an actor who previously won a Razzie, but has moved on to more appreciated and critically acclaimed movies. This year the award goes to Sylvester Stallone for his role in Creed, but we doubt it will improve his chances in winning the Oscar for Best Actor.

The full list of “winners:”
Worst Picture: Fantastic Four and Fifty Shades of Grey
Worst Actor: Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey
Worst Actress: Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey
Worst Screen Combo: Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey
Worst Supporting Actress: Kaley Cuoco, Alvin & The Chipmunks: Road Chip and The Wedding Ringer
Worst Supporting Actor: Eddie Redmayne, Jupiter Ascending
Worst Director: Josh Trank, Fantastic Four
Worst Screenplay: Fifty Shades of Grey
Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel: Fantastic Four
Redeemer Award: Sylvester Stallone

See you at the Oscars!

Possible spoilers: Will Captain America die in Civil War?

There’s a rumor buzzing the internets that the ending of the Captain America’s upcoming film Civil War will be “controversial and dramatic” as stated by one of the directors, Joe Russo.

Captain America: Civil War - Chris EvansThere are many ways this can be interpreted although most expect that the film will follow the comic book storyline in which Captain America dies. That is to say the current Captain America, Steve Rogers dies (in some way) and his good friend Bucky Barnes takes over the understandable shield.

Perhaps another way to interpret the hinted controversial ending is that Steve Rogers doesn’t die and in that way defies the comic books, thus providing an unexpected controversy.

We all have to keep in mind that Chris Evans has already signed a contract to appear in the next Avengers movie, Infinity War Part I. That makes Steve Rogers pretty much alive because all Marvel movies are interconnected, especially Civil War which is practically an Avengers movie.

Captain America Civil WarOur best guess is that Steve Rogers willingly retires from the role and hides from the world, while Bucky Barnes (the Winter Soldier) covers for him for a while.

What do you think?

Watch Benendict Cumberbatch as he acts while giving voice to Smaug!

This is why Benedict Cumberbatch is Benedict Cumberbatch.

Benendict Cumberbatch Smaug acting

After becoming famous with his portrayal of a modern day Sherlock Holmes in BBC’s Sherlock tv series, Cumberbatch first appearance in a Hollywood blockbuster was the villain Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. Following roles in The Fifth Estate (playing Julian Assange) and 12 Years A Slave, last year he was nominated for Oscar for his portrayal of Alan Turing in The Imitation Game.
This year we can’t wait to see him as Dr. Stephen Strange in Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

Below is the video as he acts voicing the mighty dragon Smaug from The Hobbit trilogy, in which he also gave voice to the Necromancer.

Must we say that this is pure awesomeness!
