After finding success in their first collaboration, Joaquin Phoenix is in talks with Paul Thomas Anderson to star in his new film, "Inherent Vice."
Based on the Thomas Pynchon novel set in the 1960s, the story follows Doc Sportello whose ex-girlfriend shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with.
“And the Oscar goes to…” is one of the most exciting phrases in the film industry, and this year there’s some serious competition among the Academy Awards nominees.
Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced the Oscar hopefuls live from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills this morning (January 10), during which both the oldest nominee (Emmanuelle Riva- Best Actress “Amour”) and youngest nominee (Quvenzhané Wallis- Best Actress “Beasts of the Southern Wild”) in Academy Awards history were named.
With just months until the 85th Academy Awards, campaigning is underway for various groups and individuals in their hopes to take home an Oscar, but not for Joaquin Phoenix.
"The Master" star recently told Interview magazine the awards circuit is "total, utter bullsh*t, and I don't want to be a part of it," adding, "I don't believe in it. It's a carrot, but it's the worst-tasting
carrot I've ever tasted in my whole life. I don't want this carrot. It's totally subjective. Pitting people against each other ... It's the stupidest thing in the whole world."
Bringing their movie up the cold white north, the stars of "The Master" arrived at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday (September 7).
Walking the red carpet that night, Amy Adams looked classy and glamorous in a black sleeveless dress with a diagonal ruffled design and pointy heels. Joining her was one of the two male leads, Joaquin Phoenix in a classic black suit and skinny black tie. His costar Philip Seymour Hoffman was absent.
