How Sandra Bullock Became The Highest Paid Actress In Hollywood


Sandra Bullock Alfonso Cuaron George Clooney Melissa McCarthy Robert Downey Jr

The results of Forbes annual celebrity rich list are in and it is with a certain amount of surprise thatSandra Bullockwas the highest paid film star of the past year. Bullock raked in over $51 million (that just over £30 million) and it seems that the 50 year-old has made some very shrewd decisions over the past years over which films she attached her name to, and not all of them looked like sure-fire box-office smashes, on paper at least.

Sandra Bullock At The DGA Awards
Sandra's box-office success has exerted a gravitational pull on all cash in her vicinity.

Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuaron and also starring George Clooney, cost a whopping $100 million to produce thanks to its almost exclusive reliance on extensive special effects. Yet the film excelled with audiences and critics alike, scooping seven Oscars as well as a host of BAFTA’s. Bullock also duly received an Oscar nomination for her role as the astronaut caught in a potentially catastrophic disaster in Earth’s orbit. Gravity drew $716 million in global box-office takings, awarding Bullock and co-star Clooney a tidy sum for their efforts which included a gruelling shooting experience whereupon the leading duo were suspended from wires and trapped in claustrophobic space suits.

The Most Undiscovered Movies On Netflix


Wes Anderson Alfonso Cuaron Jamie Uys Stephen Dorff Antoine Fuqua Chow Yun-Fat Macaulay Culkin Diego Luna Gael Garcia Bernal

Most films on the lower rungs of Netflix occupy that position for a single reason: they’re downright terrible. The acting is at best laughable and at worst cringe-worthy, whilst the script seems to be the product of baboons who possess a slightly above average intelligence. Elsewhere, the special effects are seemingly artefacts from design software that became obsolete once Windows 98 was released and the goofs and continuity errors come thick and fast. But amongst the schlock, the horribly ill-conceived box office flops and throwaway Chuck Norris vehicles are a selection of films hardly deserving of their placement amongst the vast expanse of Hollywood detritus. We’ve all sifted through the lower echelons of the vast Netflix database, ambivalently scrolling past Beverly Hills Ninja and Death Wish 4 and laughing at the hilarity of shoe-string budget horror C-movies such as Return Of The Killer Tomatoes and Strippers Vs Werewolves. Hiding amongst the most forgettable and artistically hollow filmic endeavours are some criminally overlooked works of cinematic art. Here is a selection of filmic diamonds who have unfairly found themselves confined to the Netflix motion picture ghetto:

That's No Satellite Debris! New 'Gravity' Scene "Redefines" Entire Movie [Video]


Sandra Bullock Alfonso Cuaron George Clooney

A new video has been posted online that makes us think twice about space disaster thriller Gravity. Claiming that the clip "redefines entire movie," the fan-edited footage takes a closer look at how Sandra Bullock's character could have been saved (sooner) and what the object that smashed her little workstation and sent her spinning into space may have really been.

Somehow Alfonso Cuarón forgot to include this clip in the final version of his Oscar-winning triumph but thanks to the good old internet we can share it here and now with you today. Everyone has seen that haunting/touching spin-off Inuit fisherman Aningaaq scene, directed by Cuarón's son Jonas, but this new "alternate scene" is about to blow your mind with the possibilities of the movie's other 'secrets.'

Some of the biggest names in film were out last night for the Jameson Empire Film Awards, which saw the year's biggest and best movies awarded for a storming year in filmmaking. Voted for by the public, the awards presented a somewhat different picture of the last year in film than most of the other big awards ceremonies have done so far.

It Was An Evening Of Triump For Emma Thompson, Who Was Awarded Best Actress.

Space thriller Gravity and the fantasy sequel The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug were the evening's biggest winners with the former winning Best Film and Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón whilst the latter picked up Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Best Male Newcomer for Aiden Turner, AKA Kili.

NBC's 'Believe' Premieres Tonight: What To Expect From The Chilling, Alfonso Cuarón-Directed Thriller Pilot [Trailer]


Alfonso Cuaron Jj Abrams Delroy Lindo

Are you ready for tonight's pilot of the chilling Believe? The joint cinematic forces of Alfonso Cuarón and J. J. Abrams will bring an unnerving new television experience to our small screens with what could well be the series premiere of the year. Comic-Con 2013 audiences were treated to a gripping teaser trailer which sets the scene perfectly for this evening's NBC debut.

Alfonso Cuaron Directs Tonight's 'Believe' Pilot On NBC.

The spine-chilling premiere begins with a classic Cuarón shot: an unsuspecting family are driving along as a little girl on the backseat sings a song that she tells her mother she heard in a dream. Headlights appear behind them but instead of overtaking the family, the vehicle runs them off the road. A sickening shot shows the unconscious couple bumped around as their car rolls and suddenly we are hooked into the surreal world of Believe.

Oscars Governor's Ball Plays Host To Sea Of Academy Award Winners

The Governor's Ball once again played host to the biggest names in filmmaking this year as Oscar winners, nominees and guests filled the glamorous after party with celebration. After an immense and monumental year in filmmaking, there was plenty to celebrate as winners clutched their shiny trophies and hob-nobbed with the press.

Whilst waiting to get their statuettes engraved with their name, Oscar winners were treated to a bar, entertainment from singer John Legend and a gourmet meal cooked by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck served on tables decorated with miniature chocolate Oscars.

'Gravity' Pulls In Best Director Oscar For Alfonso Cuaron


Alfonso Cuaron Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences

As expected, and as we predicted, Alfonso Cuaron has won the Oscar for Best Director at the 86th Academy Awards for his work on the stunning 3-D epic Gravity.

Alfonso CuaronGeorge Clooney in Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity'

Cuaron has long been the favorite for the award and in many ways he was considered the biggest certainty. In recent years, the Academy has bucked its own trend of awarding best director to the man or woman behind the camera of the year's best film and instead considers technical achievements and progressive techniques. Last year, Ang Lee won Best Director for the visually spectacular Life of Pi, while Ben Affleck didn't even receive a nomination for his Best Picture winner Ben Affleck. Steven Spielberg was also nominated for Lincoln.

From 'Gravity' To Barkhad Abdi - Where The Baftas 2014 Got It Wrong


Chiwetel Ejiofor Steve McQueen Lupita Nyong'o Alfonso Cuaron Sandra Bullock BAFTA Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences

The Baftas delivered on certain promises, collating some of the world’s biggest stars and funneling them down a red carpet, giving a select few the chance to present an award, and, creating talking points as the perennial battle between who should have won and who did win continued to flare.

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael FassbenderChiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender in 12 Years a Slave

Gravity was the night’s big success story as it was when it debuted at Venice all those months ago. The case for the film’s British credentials were never in doubt – BAFTA awards home soil movies and, given that the space thriller’s special effects were delivered by a British team in England, Gravity’s passport is a U.K one.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean the coveted Best Director nod should have gone Alfonso Cuaron’s way. Despite the pure, exhilarating brand of entertainment delivered – almost old-school Hollywood – it’s hard to look past Steve McQueen for his work on 12 Years a Slave when looking for someone more deserved of individual recognition.

Yes, 12 Years reeled in two magnificent awards: that of Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor and Best Film. Despite these high-profile gongs, though, there were other categories in which the slave drama missed out on, and almost certainly didn’t deserve to.

The supporting actor categories leap out as key pieces of evidence in the case of 12 Years a Slave. Barkhad Abdhi’s ascension this past 12 months has been a joy to watch, and his performance in Captain Phillips was touching and terrifying in equal measure. But he wasn’t better than Michael Fassbender as Edwin Epps – the evil plantation owner with a scary infatuation with Patsy, played majestically by Lupita Nyong’o.

And, like a seasoned radio professional, that neat segway leads me on to the Best Supporting Actress win for Jennifer Lawrence, which was – despite her current popularity and GIF-worthyness – a ridiculous decision. To put her role in American Hustle above Nyong’o’s in 12 Years was a travesty; to put it above newcomer Nyong’o and Sally Hawkins’ turn in Blue Jasmine is nothing short of wrong.
