Anne Hathaway Was Originally Cast In “Silver Linings Playbook”

  • Anne Hathaway and Mark Wahlberg with originally cast in “Silver Linings Playbook,” producer Harvey Weinstein has revealed. Anne backed away from the role after “creative differences” with David O. Russell and then Mark followed. But Jennifer Lawrence ended up winning the Oscar for “SLP,” so it all worked out, no?

"I just had a shot"

I was going to try and pick out one or two quotes from this clip of Jennifer Lawrence doing post-Oscars interviews, but it was pretty impossible to choose just one thing. Aside from being gorgeous and talented and all over amazing, J. Law happens to also be extremely thoughtful and funny. After discussing the stigma around mental health vis a vis her movie “Silver Linings Playbook,” Lawrence admitted that she’d done a shot backstage and made fun of herself for falling while trying to collect her awards. This clip confirms that she is probably the most hilarious person to hang out with in Hollywood, by a mile. [Yahoo]

When I sat down to watch “Silver Linings Playbook,” I had high hopes. Friends whose opinions I respect loved the film and praise for her performance has made Jennifer Lawrence a front-runner for Best Actress in this year’s Oscar race. I’ve loved Lawrence since “Winter’s Bone” and I’m constantly amazed by her ability to play incredibly tough, independent, strong-willed protagonists.

But “Silver Linings Playbook” left me with an uneasy feeling, and it wasn’t because of the film’s flawed grasp of mental illness or its contrived and formulaic plot. It had everything to do with the treatment of Lawrence’s character. My first reaction to the film when it ended was: “What was with all the slut shaming?” [Spoilers after the jump!] Keep reading »

Here Are Your 2013 Academy Award Nominees!

"Beasts Of The Southern Wild"
This film is a MUST SEE. Read More »

The nominees for the Academy Awards were announced this morning and I thought they were all sorts of WTF. While there were some awesome surprises (Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest nominee ever for “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and there was a lot of love shown for the foreign language film “Amour”), there were many snubs that left me scratching my head. For starters, Kathryn Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Ben Affleck (“Argo”) and Quentin Tarantino (“Django Unchained”) were all snubbed in the Best Director category, despite being considered shoe-ins. Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper landed Best Actor nominations but John Hawkes, who was beyond brilliant in “The Sessions,” was overlooked. At least my beloved Joaquin Phoenix was nominated for “The Master.” I’m sure he’s surly about it.

And, I mean, where were the nominations for “Magic Mike”?! I kid. Sort of. Other observations: the Academy clearly has a major boner for “Silver Linings Playbook,” “The Master” received a lot of recognition in the acting categories but won’t win anything, and no matter what, Anne Hathaway is walking away with Best Supporting Actress, as much as I wish Amy Adams’ handjob had a shot. Check out the list of nominees for the acting, directing and picture categories after the jump, and the full list of nominees at the link. [Oscars] Keep reading »
