For many movie and television fans, the SAG Awards trophy is the one that really counts, and on Sunday (January 25) the Screen Actors Guild handed out a slew of hardware to some very deserving recipients.
Not surprisingly, “Birdman” ended up winning the Outstanding Performance By a Cast in a Motion Picture honors, giving Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts and Edward Norton something to smile about.
For every actor there’s a pivot point that takes them to the next level and Eddie Redmayne's big role in “The Theory of Everything” has changed everything. In the February 2015 issue of Glamour magazine, the “Les Miserables” hunk talks about how he landed the part of Stephen Hawking.
“I chased it pretty hard. I called [the director] James [Marsh], and we met in London. He drank a few coffees; I downed a few pints. As I got more tipsy, I got more effusive about my desire to play this part. I had no idea that there was such an astounding story behind Hawking.”
Kicking off the week with a lovely wedding, Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe got married today (December 15) in Somerset, England. The “Theory of Everything” hunk said “I Do” with his longtime love in a candlelit ceremony at the Babington House, and the theme was “Winter Wonderland.”
In May, Eddie proposed to Hannah and they immediately decided to get hitched in December. An insider stated, "He had been planning on it for awhile. They have a very relaxed and supportive relationship … they seemed to have always known they were going to spend the rest of their lives together.”
We’re just into November and already the awards show season is well-underway, and on Saturday (November 8) the AMPAS Governors Awards took over the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center.
Jennifer Aniston and her handsome fiancé Justin Theroux were in fine form as they enjoyed all that the evening had to offer. One eyewitness told press, "Every time I saw them they were touching. She would lay her head on his shoulder while the different honorees were speaking onstage and put her arms around him. He also was holding her hand at the table, and I saw him lean over and kiss her a couple of times."
