Why Was Elsa The Snow Queen From 'Frozen' Arrested?
Elsa from "Frozen" strikes again, racking up a second arrest in one week in South Carolina.

A local police department has arrested the Disney princess for bringing cold weather to their town.

The Hanahan Police Department brought the winter-maker to justice for allowing a cold front to blanket area and freezing a local fountain.

"Hopefully Elsa will stay away, although it's supposed to be cold tomorrow, so we may have to get her again," police chief Mike Cochran revealed to USA TODAY.

Just last week, a Kentucky police department posted on Facebook that they were issuing an arrest warran...

The Real Reasons Why Eddie Redmayne Won An Oscar For Best Actor

The Real Reasons Why Eddie Redmayne Won An Oscar For Best Actor
Eddie Redmayne seemed to walk away with the 2015 Oscar for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his stellar performance as Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything."

Still, Redmayne was up against some stiff competition in Michael Keaton ("Birdman"), Steve Carell ("Foxcatcher"), Bradley Cooper ("American Sniper") and Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game"). So what were the key reasons why he won?

He Played A Real Person, Not A Character

Most Oscar winners who take home the gold in this category play a version of a real-life story. Just last year, Matthew McConaughey won for his po...

'VANish' Star Tony 'Candyman' Todd Gives Insight On His Amazing Career!

February 24th, 2015 12:20pm EST
TT
Sometimes the hardest job for an actor immediately associated with a single standout character is to move past such a notorious notable and keep working. Fortunately for character actor Tony Todd, who is of course most recognized for his arresting work as former slave Daniel Robitaille turned hook wielding legend "Candyman," it’s truly been a success story. Having done some seriously stellar work both before (see "Platoon," "Lean On Me" and the Tom Savini version of "Night of the Living Dead" to name a few) and after ("The Crow," "The Rock" and of course the "Final Destination" films!) th...

Why Did Alejandro G. Iñárritu Deserve To Win Best Director?

February 23rd, 2015 8:30pm EST
Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu
In his second career Oscar nomination for Best Director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu took home the gold for “Birdman” (as well as two more wins, for Best Picture and Original Screenplay). Here is how he pulled it off:

1. The “One Shot” Trick
Coverage of “Birdman” has already discussed this feature to death, but it bears repeating: the entire film was shot and edited in such a way that it appeared to be one long continuous take. There actually were several cuts throughout, but most of the shots lasted about ten minutes, which is still an intensely long duration, considering that a one-minute sh...

Top 5 Game Changing Movie Bad Guys
Throughout the vast history of hero flicks one thing remains a key ingredient to being a success – the champion of the film is only as good as his bad guy movie counterpart. And while throughout cinema there have been a lot of truly tasty twisted dudes, only a very few have actually carved groundbreaking new territory in the role of ying to a hero’s yang. It’s these roles that we salute here – five sinister, calculated and conniving characters who dared to slip on the mask of malevolence and lovingly gave the movie world a whole new definition of bad guy. Listed by year, beginning way ba...

The 8 Biggest Snubs And Craziest Surprises Of The 2015 Oscars

The 8 Biggest Snubs And Craziest Surprises Of The 2015 Oscars
2015 was not the year for Oscar drama.

There were no underdogs that came out of nowhere for the unexpected win. There were no obvious favorites that lost to a weird backwards choice (and thus, very few vegetable platters hurled at the TV in blind fury).

Instead, this year was all about "which frontrunner's gonna win it?"- categories where the winner was down to one or two (or three, sometimes) favorites, and one of those favorites inevitably took home a small, nude, gold man.

But there was still snubs and there were still surprises, and we're still going to catalogue them for you. Like w...

Lady Gaga Oscars 2015
You could almost hear the world cringe when Scarlett Johansson appeared on stage at the Oscars to introduce Lady Gaga, who would be singing a four-song nmedley to mark the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music, but as soon as the eccentric pop star sang the first words to the musical's eponymous theme song, it was clear that the biggest highlight from this year's award ceremony had just begun.

Known for her outrageous fashions at these types of events, Gaga, born this way: Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, dressed down for her performance, wearing a white Azzedine Alaïa ball gown, putti...

The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2015 Academy Awards
The biggest fashion event of the year took place on Sunday night (and some famous people took home some Oscars, as well). But what do we really like about watching the Academy Awards? The red carpet style.

The stars were quite conservative at this year's 87th Academy Awards. There were no major stand outs -- either good or bad. But there were some celebrities that looked beautiful in their designer gowns, and a few who maybe should have reconsidered their looks for the night.

Check out our best and worst dressed...

7 Things You Didn't See Backstage At The Oscars
The 87th Annual Academy Awards have come and gone, but some of the most intriguing things happened behind the scenes. Here are a few things seen and heard from backstage in the press room.

1. Hot Microphones: Before the show began, the ABC red carpet show was playing on the press-room monitors. They forgot to turn off Lara Spencer’s microphone, so the media got an earful as the entertainment correspondent reprimanded her crew for not giving her a long enough countdown to commercial break.

2. Surprise Wins: The press room gasped when Big Hero 6 upset Animated Feature category favorite How ...
