Stooges

We’ve been hearing about a potential The Three Stooges movie for some years now, with nothing ever really playing out. It looks like that’s about to change as casting has begun to move forward on the Peter and Bobby Farrelly project.

While all three of the above names aren’t etched in stone as of yet, they are the target three. Sean Penn is a definite for the role of Larry (and probably the most fitting, look-wise), and Jim Carrey is currently in negotiations for the role of Curly. Word is that Carrey is already making plans to gain 40 pounds for the chubby character, so that makes his participation seem a lot more likely. Benicio Del Toro isn’t in negotiations yet, but he’s been singled out as the choice for Moe for a while now, so that’s a wait-and-see.

The Farrelly brothers also wrote the script, which will be distributed by MGM. The plan is to begin filming this fall, with a release set for some time in 2010.

2009 Academy Awards Winners

Oscars

Well, ladies and gentlemen, tonight was the big night — the 81st Academy Awards ceremony and below we have the full list of winners for you.

This was notable because it seemed a large effort was being put forward to change things up a bit and make the show a lot more entertaining in an attempt to bring in more viewers. They went off the track and hired Hugh Jackman to host the show instead of the normal comedian, they shook things up by using different methods of presenters, such as five previous winners instead of just last year’s winner. They tried a new thing called the “yearbook” where various clips from various genres from the year were shown; this was a chance to show movies like Hancock, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and Death Race to try and appeal to younger crowds. They even changed up the In Memoriam section, having Queen Latifah sing live while our dearly departed were shown one last time on screens in the background.

Now I’m not sure if it’s just me, or what the overall consensus will be, but personally, I thought it was a massive failure. The show was severely boring and hard to watch at times. After promises of Hugh Jackman not doing “Hugh Jackman” things like singing and dancing, he surely did plenty of singing and dancing, including a real high point where it turned into a duet with Beyonce, which turned into a double duet with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens from High School Musical, and then a duet menage a trois with who I think were Mamma Mia people. Really, just… hard to watch. I in fact muted it.

Oscar Nominations Announced; Heath Ledger Gets His, Best Picture Fails

Oscars

After much-anticipation, the nominees for 81st Academy Awards were announced today. For the most part, the list doesn’t really shine; some categories are as expected, some include surprises, and some just don’t make any sense at all.

First of all, the bright spot. After many, many months of wonder, debates, and arguments — Heath Ledger was indeed given his much-deserved Oscar nomination. Whether he’ll actually win or not is yet to be seen — he does have some very strong competition — but now that he has received the nomination, it would really be a perfect and poetic ending to an extremely sad story.

On the more negative side: the Best Picture category. Keep in mind that I haven’t seen any of these movies, so my opinions are strictly based on what I’ve heard about the various films that were thought to be in contention for a Best Picture nomination. Considering what I’ve heard, one can’t help but think that this year’s five is a little… boring. From what I’ve gathered, there were definitely other movies that could have replaced multiple nominees, so why did they not?
