Kristen Stewart has been acting since she was just a kid, but it wasn’t until she appeared in the “Twilight” series that she really got thrown into the spotlight.
The actress has had to deal with plenty of critics throughout her career, but she’s managed to come out on top. Stewart has seemingly done things on her own terms and has even earned some major accolades (like France’s equivalent to an Oscar) along the way.

In honor of the late star’s birthday … read more
The Academy Awards for me was a surprise, notably in that I mostly enjoyed Neil Patrick Harris’ performance. In the past, when he’s hosted the Tonys and Emmys I’ve not always been impressed, perhaps because he tried too hard to show off skills that were adequate but not thrilling. At the outset, I thought here we go again, bland, so-so singing with not so catchy lyrics, though against a clever background of cinematic screen moments into which Harris injected himself.

Jon Voight thinks Angelina Jolie deserves more credit. Though the actress-turned-director scored three nominations at the 87th Annual Academy Awards, she was ignored in the Best Director category for Unbroken.

Unbroken is nominated for Best … read more
