Of course, Emma was nominated for Best Actress alongside some powerful names in the industry, including Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep, Ruth Negga and Isabelle Huppert.

In her acceptance speech, Emma thanked all her close ones for their support. “I realize a moment like this is a huge confluence of luck and opportunity and so I want to thank Damien Chazelle for the opportunity to be part of a project that was so special and once in a lifetime,” Emma started her speech.

“I’m so grateful to have been involved in this film and thank you for your faith and your patience and such a wonderful experience, and Ryan Gosling, thank you for making me laugh and for always raising the bar and for being the greatest partner on this crazy adventure,” the beautiful star went on to add. Emma also kept her modesty and said that there are still a lot of things she has to learn.

“I still have a lot of growing and learning and work to do and this guy is a really beautiful symbol to continue on that journey. And I’m so grateful for that,” the talented actress concluded. Well, Emma’s speech was surely an emotional and beautiful moment, and there is no doubt in the fact that the actress deserves all the appreciation for her amazing performance.

The movie itself, La La Land, was much appreciated and won a series of awards at the Oscars. It got the award for cinematography, directing, but also for production design, original song and original score. Ryan Gosling, who starred with Emma in La La Land was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, but the award finally went to another star, Casey Affleck.

Academy Awards 2017: The Winners

The Oscars were extremely interesting, but also filled with some unexpected events. The 2017 Academy Awards brought to light some new winners and of course, the most important awards, meaning the Best Picture, the Best Actress and the Best Actor brought some surprises.

When it comes to the Best Picture category things were actually a bit dramatic. Moonlight won Best Picture after what will remain in the history of the Oscars as an unexpected and confusing moment. Initially, it was revealed that La La Land was the winner in the Best Picture category. After everyone went on stage, it was actually revealed that a mistake was done and the actual winner was Moonlight.

Without a doubt, the moment was undesired and the crew from La La Band had to leave the stage, while the crew from Moonlight came to take their award. Well, at least when it comes to Best Actress and Best Actor, things were simpler. In the Best Actress category, the result was definitely expected. Emma Stone won the award for her great performance in La La Land.

Actually, Emma was expected to win and the star was extremely happy and visibly emotional with the honor. When it comes to Best Actor, actually the winner was a surprise for some. Casey Affleck, the brother of famous actor Ben Affleck, took home the award.

Here are the main winners:

Best picture: Moonlight
Best actress: Emma Stone (La La Land)
Best actor: Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea)
Best director: Damien Chazelle (La La Land)
Best supporting actor: Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
Best supporting actress: Viola Davis (Fences)
Best animated feature: Zootopia

The fact that Casey Affleck won was quite surprising, as numerous voices claimed that the winner would actually be Ryan Gosling. Other nominees in the Best Actor category were Andrew Garfield, Viggo Mortenson and Denzel Washington. “I think we’re the only two brothers to win Academy Awards,” Casey Affleck said, naturally referring to his brother Ben. “I’ve learned a lot from him; he’s been through a lot in this business,” he went on to add. After his speech at the Oscars, it has been claimed that Casey regretted not thanking his children.

Matt Reeves Won’t Direct The Batman Movie

Ben Affleck’s upcoming movie, The Batman, is already dealing with some issues. So, it has been reported that Matt Reeves is not going to direct The Batman. Allegedly, he backed out of the negotiations although nothing much has been revealed on this subject.

So, Matt Reeves, who is well known as the director of the Rise of the Planet of the Apes, may not work on this project. Initially, Ben Affleck was supposed to direct the new movie, but he finally decided to step down from this role. Immediately after, rumors started to say that the movie will be directed by Matt Reeves. Well, that is not going to happen, as reports revealed that the negotiations between Reeves and Warner Bros stopped.

The Hollywood Reporter claimed that although the exact reason which led to the end of negotiations between the two parties has not been revealed, maybe there is still room for talks. Of course, Warner Bros is not going to let go of the idea of releasing this movie, so, after all, anything can happen. Well, it is important to mention at this point that Warner Bros has been dealing with a lot of challenges ever since it started working on this project.

Reportedly, the famous company will move to search for another director if a deal with Reeves cannot be reached. However, it is a pity that the parties could not reach an agreement, as it has previously been revealed that Matt was on the same page with Ben Affleck when it comes to the project and the two shared the same creative vision.

When it comes to Matt Reeves, it is safe to say that the star is quite busy. He has been working on War for the Plant of the Apes, which is set to be out in the summer. On the other hand, Ben Affleck, who will star in the movie, previously refused to take the role of a director, saying that it would be too much for him, considering the complexity of his acting role which requires a lot of passion and commitment for a great performance.

Angelina Jolie Talks about Brad Pitt Divorce for the First Time

Months after the official separation from her former husband Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has finally decided to open up about her divorce.

“I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and… and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it,” Angelina said. The actress also revealed a bit about how she manages to cope with everything.

So, Angelina said that she is actually able to deal with everything by focusing on her children. “Many, many people find themselves in this situation,” the star said. “My whole, my family … we’ve all being through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children… and my focus is finding this way through,” she went on to explain. “We are and forever will be a family.

Angelina Jolie Fears Brad Pitt Will Leave Her

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt might not be doing that well when it comes to their relationship. According to the latest reports, the actress actually worries that her husband might leave her. And Angelina fears that Brad could end up their marriage for Marion Cotillard. 

The news was reported by In Touch magazine, which claimed that Brad and Marion have gotten quite close on the set of their latest movie. The two actors work together on the upcoming drama, Allied. So, the report said that Angelina really fears that she will lose her husband because of the famous actress. The source claimed that Angelina has her reasons to be scared, as Brad is falling in love with Marion the way he fell for Angelina years back. 

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt first met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, back in 2005. At that time, the actor was married with famous Friends star Jennifer Aniston. However, Brad and Angelina fell in love and have been together ever since. Of course, Brad and Jennifer divorced. Their separation was absolutely shocking, as at that time Brad and Jennifer were one of the most famous celebrity couples in the world.

“[‘Allied’] description sounds very similar to the plot of ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’, where Angelina and Brad first sparked the affair that ended Brad and Jen’s marriage,” the source explained. The insider went on to say that Brad might like Marion because she is very similar to Angelina. 

So, the source said that Marion and Angelina “have an astounding amount of similarities: both have French ancestry, both have been applauded for humanitarian work (Cotillard for her work with Greenpeace and Jolie for United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), both have received numerous acting awards and both are gorgeous brunettes.” 

As expected, Brad and Angelina have not commented on the report. Marion Cotillard has also remained silent about the claims. However, as usual, Gossip Cop came to dismiss the claims. A source talking to the celebrity site said that the whole story is “nonsense” and Angelina is not worried that her husband might leave her for Marion.

Jean-Claude Van Damme Leaves Interview Because of “Boring” Questions

Jean-Claude Van Damme is without a doubt a very famous actor who has been featured in a wide variety of movies throughout the years. And of course, due to his fame, Van Damme has also been through numerous interviews. Well, it seems that the star has had it with all these interviews, as he actually claimed that he is tired of being asked “boring questions.”

So, Van Damme lost his interest in a new interview with an Australian TV show, Sunrise. Actually, Van Damme was not happy since the beginning of the interview. “Guys, you are talking behind the cameras,” the actor said. “I’m online talking to you and I have people behind that camera talking about … because I’m sweating and everything.”

Despite this, Van Damme stayed in the interview, at least until he was asked a question about Kylie Minogue. The actor and Kylie Minogue starred together in a movie in 1994, of course, the famous Street Fighter. Only in 2012, the actor revealed that he and his co-star had a fling while filming the movie. Most likely, Van Damme has been asked about this several times and it looks like the actor didn’t want to talk about it once again. 

“Yeah, I like Kylie. I like everybody. … Sorry, guys, I cannot do this anymore. You are talking to a guy who’s very rough, you know. Let me talk,” the actor said in the middle of the interview. “The press, they have been asking me the same questions for the last 25 years. How’s Kylie? How’s the training? How’s your this? How’s your that?”

“Those interviews you are giving me on TV right now, they are very boring because the questions are very boring,” he added. “It’s difficult for me to answer those questions so I start to sweat, I don’t feel good because they are boring and I knew this. OK, next question. You have something interesting to ask me?” Of course, his reaction was not expected. 

The actor then took off his microphone and left after saying that he needed to go to the bathroom.

Kristen Bell Talks about Her Husband’s Struggles

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are a happily married couple. The two have been through a lot together and Kristen has recently decided to open up about her husband’s struggle with addiction. Kristen actually said during an interview with E! News that her husband has changed the way she sees the world. 

Furthermore, the actress said that the issues that Dax has been dealing with had helped her want to do more in helping the ones in need. “I have a particular affinity towards helping people who feel outcast whether they’ve made mistakes, like having past felony convictions or recovering addicts,” Kristen said during her interview. 

She also confessed that Dax has been in recovery from his alcohol and drug addiction for quite some time. “My husband is in recovery and is almost 13 years sober,” she said. Dax managed to overcome his issues back in 2004 and has been on the right track ever since. Of course, Kristen had a lot to learn from her husband. 

“Seeing the world through his eyes has really opened mine to knowing that it is a disease and nobody is choosing to drink more than others,” she revealed. “They are doing it because of a variety of reasons and they deserve the attention of a mental health professional, and not the county jail or however else we’re choosing to pretend we’re fixing the problem,” the Hollywood star claimed. 

However, not only her husband influenced her into enjoying doing charity work, but we may say the same thing about her family. The actress said that her family has always done community work and has always tried to help others. 

“I learned to value that at a very young age. I learned to find joy in lending a hand and lending support to those who need it. And I was taught to view all humans as a part of my family,” she said, adding that she tries to teach her children these values, as well. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have two children together, Lincoln, who is 3 years old, and Delta, who is only one.

Iwan Rheon opens up about Game of Thrones Role

One of the most exciting Game of Thrones episodes of the season has aired this week. Actually, the 9th episode of the 6th season of the popular series has delivered fans an epic battle between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton, The Battle of the Bastards. Jon took back Winterfell during this episode with the help of his sister and an unexpected ally, Littlefinger. 

After being defeated and beaten up by Jon, Ramsay Bolton was eaten by own dogs, a death that Sansa arranged for him. So, this impressive episode has brought the death of Ramsay, which many fans have been expecting for long. Of course, this also means that Iwan Rheon’s part in Game of Thrones has ended. Iwan played the role of Ramsay and managed to create the ultimate villain of the popular television series. 

Now, Iwan decided to open up about his exit from the series. The famous actor talked to Entertainment Weekly in a new interview. “It’s cool. I’ve had four lovely seasons here,” the actor said during his interview. “It’s been great to be involved with such an amazing show. I think it’s kind of right he goes down. Because what else is he going to do after this? He’s done so many things,” Iwan explained. 

He went on to say that Ramsey’s exit from the show was justified. “It’s justified and it’s the right thing to do. It’s the right path. He’s reached his peak. It’s nice for the audience that he goes out on this high, if you will,” Iwan added. “Jon Snow needs to win because otherwise there’s no hope left in the world. But it is interesting that it isn’t fair,” he concluded. 

When it comes to Ramsey’s death, the actor also seems to believe that it is completely justified. “And it’s a gruesome death. It’s so ironic. He’s been banging on about those hounds all this time,” he said. There is only one episode left from this season of Game of Thrones and fans are definitely anxious to find out what will happen next. The show airs on HBO on Sundays, at 9pm. 

Johnny Depp never Abused Amanda Heard while being Sober

The rumors on the scandalous breakup of Johnny Depp and Amanda Heard are never ending. So, a series of things have been claimed about the two and a series of sources have decided to talk about the relationship between the famous actors.

Well, a pretty common question that has emerged regarding Johnny and Amanda has been why Amanda waited for so long before ending her marriage, if the famous actor has been so abusive towards her?

Well, at least this question seems to have been answered by a new report. The report claimed that the reason why Amanda remained by Johnny’s side, despite his behavior, is the fact that she really believed that the famous actor would eventually stop.

Furthermore, a source has recently revealed that Johnny has never abused Amanda while being sober. 

Thus, Amanda really hoped that things would get better in her relationship with Johnny. And the way things worked depended on whether he used drugs or not. “Amber didn’t want to come forward about the abuse because she had faith he’d get better and that it would stop,” a source said according to E! News. The same insider went on to explain that Amanda has actually “suffered severe emotional trauma” because of the abuses. 

The source claimed that Amber used to forgive Johnny anything, as the actor commonly apologized to her and she believed him. However, the insider claimed that things could not go on like this forever, this is the reason why Amanda had to leave her husband. 

“She’s now realized that his addictions got the best of him and that she couldn’t continue living this way,” the source said. The insider also claimed that Amanda is afraid of her former husband. Despite that, Amanda still loves Johnny and the source claimed that the actress hopes that he will get help to be able to overcome his addictions. 

The whole case that Amanda Heard filed against Johnny Depp remains ongoing, so it is yet to find out if the star had really abused her. Depp has not officially commented on the report.

Susan Sarandon has nothing Good to Say about Woody Allen

Susan Sarandon seems to believe the stories claiming that Woody Allen has abused a child. The famous actress actually criticised the movie director, saying that she had nothing good to say about him. Susan made the comments during an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival. 

Woody Allen has been dealing with some accusations saying that he sexually abused his stepdaughter, Dylan, when she was only seven years old. “I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don’t think that’s right,” the actress stated. “I have nothing good to say about him. I don’t want to go there,” Susan added. Maybe, Susan is one of the stars who does not want to be associated to the movie director. 

Actually, Woody Allen’s son with Mia Farrow, Ronan, asked stars to stop working with his father. Ronan Farrow wrote a column in The Hollywood Reporter, talking about the abuse allegations against Allen. Ronan actually went to criticise all the stars who keep on working with Woody Allen saying that the situation could be comparable to the scandal involving Bill Cosby. 

“I believe my sister. This was always true as a brother who trusted her, and, even at 5 years old, was troubled by our father’s strange behavior around her: climbing into her bed in the middle of the night, forcing her to suck his thumb — behavior that had prompted him to enter into therapy focused on his inappropriate conduct with children prior to the allegations,” Ronnan claimed. 

Woody Allen has not revealed too much with regard to this story, but he did admit he knew about the column, although he has not read it yet. Allen also said that he just wanted to remain focused on his work. “I never read anything. I never read what you say about me or the reviews of my film. I made the decision I think five years ago never to read a review of my movie,” the movie director said in an interview with Variety. “Never read an interview. Never read anything, because you can easily become obsessed with yourself.”

Of course, the allegations remain unproven, but unfortunately for Woody Allen, he was not able to escape the claims during the Cannes festival. In fact, the allegations are not new at all. They were first made in 1993, when an investigation started against Allen, but no charges were filed against the star.
