After Earth, Will Smith
It's game day. The Academy Awards ceremony obvious takes place this evening and so like clockwork, the ignominious folks that run the Razzies Awards have unveiled their list for the worst movies of the year. The biggest story this year is that the Razzie committee failed to award Adam Sandler anything. Odd given how much the organization seems to loath Sandler and all his comedies. And oh yes, “Grown Ups 2” was nominated in several worst categories, but the Razzies saw fit to see many other films are far more egregious in failure.

Earlier this week, Paul Rudd visited “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” to welcome Fallon to his new gig as host and, ostensibly, to plug the rerelease of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” which begins a weeklong run in an extended, R-rated cut this weekend. When the always-excitable Fallon asked Rudd what the longer cut was like, Rudd paused and said, “It’s just weird.” This is the easiest way to describe the new version of “Anchorman 2,” an oversized comedy so shapeless and bizarre that it borders on being experimental. Gone is any sense of pacing or propriety; in its place is sheer, go-for-broke goofiness. It doesn’t always work, but it’s probably the most fascinating thing being released in theaters this weekend.

12 Years A Slave
The Independent's Spirit Awards are underway. "12 Years A Slave' leads the field with 7 nominations, while "Nebraska" is close behind with six, picking up nods in the same categories bar cinematography. "All Is Lost" has four nominations while "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "Frances Ha" made up the rest of the feature nominations, though missed out on other key nods (we're still shocked Greta Gerwig wasn't nomed for Best Actress). Winner as they happen below.

12 Memorable Oscar Acceptance Speeches
Oh my God. Thank you. Thank you. I can’t...God, I’m so nervous! This is, just, this is incredible. So unexpected—I didn’t even prepare anything! [surreptitiously unfolds piece of paper stored in cleavage]. Firstly, I have to thank the Academy, without whom I wouldn’t be here today, bringing you this feature about the most Memorable Oscar Speeches ever. And I have to thank the Editors, Rodrigo and Kevin, and my fellow features writer Oli, and all the nominees (whose company I am so humbled to share, though I don’t know how the hell Meryl Streep got into this category too).
