The Oscars Nomination List

The Oscars Nomination List
The Revenant The Revenant leads the nominations with a total of 12, followed by Mad Max: Fury Road with 10 and The Martian with seven. Good to see Inside Out getting a nod for original screenplay; shame it didn’t make the Best Picture list though. And two years ago who would have predicted that a Mad Max film would be honoured with so many nominations? Amazingly there are no non-white actors in any of the four acting categories. We’re not suggesting... 

The Revenant, Mr Robot And “Comedy” The Martian Win Big At The Golden Globes

The Revenant, Mr Robot And “Comedy” The Martian Win Big At The Golden Globes
Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Amazingly, it wasn’t the comments made by host Ricky Gervais that caused the biggest controversy at the Golden Globes this years (though he did he best with a tasteless gag about a fatal car crash and claiming, “I’d rather spend the night in a hotel with Mel Gibson than Bill Cosby”). Instead the thing the internet really got its teeth into was The Martian winning  Best Motion Picture – Musical Or Comedy. When Matt Damon...

The BUZZ Random Awards Of The 2015
2015 is over and you’ve probably had about enough of “Best/Worst” lists as you have of turkey and trailers for Sherlock. So here at BUZZ we’re giving you an alternate, shamelessly partisan and unapologetically cherrypicking look back the year that was in cult entertainment…   SEPPUKU OF THE YEAR The season finale of Defiance becomes a series finale for Defiance Usually when a show reaches its season finale and there’s been no...

The Martian: The World Rallies Behind Rescue Mission

The Martian: The World Rallies Behind Rescue Mission
Not a clip from the new Ridley Scott-directed The Martian (which is being described all over the place as his best movie in ages) but an “in world” video – ie, it’s something you’d see if you were a character in the film. It features the world sending good will messages to stranded astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon). It’s called “Bring Him Home” but doesn’t feature Hugh Jackman bursting into song. Based on the best-selling novel...

••• Although the Joel Kinnaman-starring reboot of RoboCop only had a middling box office performance around the world (and tanked completely in the all-important US) according to sources at Den Of Geek, Sony is accepting pitches for RoboCop 2 while not actively developing the project. “As it turns out, it’s not a closed project at Sony, although it doesn’t appear to be one the studio is heavily pursuing,” says the article. “Nonetheless,...

••• Watchers On The Wall, via Vanity Fair, is reporting that Essie Davis (The Babadook) has been cast in the next season of Game Of Thrones as… Cersei Lannister. Er, hang on… what? Well, okay, she’ll be playing an actress in a touring drama troupe playing a character based on Cersei Lannister. All very Hamlet. Someone trying the capture the conscience of the Queen? Or just taking the piss out of her after her shaming last season? This...

In this latest clip from director Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Donald Glover explains to NASA director Jeff Daniels the physics that could allow the Ares 3 mission to feasibly save stranded astronaut Mark Watney’s (Matt Damon) life. Using a stapler. We think Walter Bishop may be his role model.
