Life After Pi: The Oscars are Over, Guess Where Your Next VFX Blockbuster is Coming From?

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   You may not have heard of Life After Pi, but you certainly remember Life of Pi, which continues to dazzle in VFX and revenues.

Bruised Oscars 2014: How the Battle for Noms Fizzled the Show for '12 Years'

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent This Awards Season was by all accounts one of the nastiest in Oscar history, not just the Woody Allen takedown but also in general campaigning with one song nominated, then disqualified, and the vitriol against a few leading ladies. Julia Roberts took the worst hits, not just in her personal life tragedy but in a voter backlash as revealed to The Hollywood Reporter with one anonymous AMPAS member's ballot being made public, The voter d...

DID YOU KNOW ‘PEOPLE’ MAG TO HOST 2014 OSCAR® FANS?

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent AMPAS is always coming up with something new. And, in fact, ABC will have something like 700 cameras in and around the red carpet for fan enjoyment this year. In other words, you can see stars accept, walk around, even talk to the press corps.

His life is depicted for better or worse in...

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent For France, David O. Russell's Oscar-contender American Hustle is aptly retitled "American Bluff." And recently Russell told Le Monde by telephone interview, "Aujourd'hui, je suis fatigué, j'ai un rhume. Et je plane à 2000," on reaction to the 10 Nominations the film received from the Academy.
