X-Men Days Of Future Past
Don't be fooled. While Fox is touting this as the final trailer for "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," there is still a long month ahead before it hits theatres. And in that time, we're sure there will be no shortage of featurettes, clips, Instagram vids, Vines, skywriting and more for Bryan Singer's ambitious franchise entry. But before that, yes, it's the final trailer for the movie.

Serena
Shot before "American Hustle," but still unreleased, a big question mark remains stamped on Susanne Bier's "Serena" starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. We know that Steven Soderbergh watched some version of it in 2013, but since the first image dropped in 2012, there has been pretty much total silence. Late last year, reports surfaced that the movie had been quietly screening for distributors, but it says something that months later, there has been no official deal announced, even though heavyweights like The Weinstein Company and Fox Searchlight has been circling. So, is it a troubled production or just a director trying to get it right?

American Hustle
For all the dumb “American Hustle” vs. “Wolf Of Wall Street” bickering by critics (which prompted New York Times doyen A.O Scott to scold folks on Twitter,) what did it land both films? Zero Oscars. For David O. Russell’s film, being nominated for 10 Academy Awards and receiving none must have hurt. But with the Oscars in the past, Sony can concentrate with the here and now as “American Hustle” is available on DVD and Blu-Ray this week.

2014 Oscar Winners
...And that's it on another year. As always, the Oscars were both exciting, (mostly) sleep inducing, surprising and left us with lots to talk about. But it's late, we're tired and filled with nacho cheese, so we're going to be a bit brief for now.

2014 Oscar Selfie
What's up party people, here is your official Playlist Oscars 2014 live-blog, steered with reckless, and rosé-soaked abandon by me, Katie Walsh. I'm no awards pundit, or expert, but I am an enthusiast for fashions, celebrities, and live television mishaps, which is what these awards shows do best, as well as hand out shiny gold doorstoppers to the best and brightest of Hollywood. It's also a wonderful way to celebrate the end of what has seemed like an incredibly long and convoluted Oscar season (which really, is most of the year now), and tonight will no doubt be a great catharsis of all our collective anxieties, disagreements and heated opinions.

American Hustle
Today is what every director, actor, studio executive, PR person, marketing guru and consultant has been building to all awards season long—the start of Oscar voting. But that doesn't mean the campaigns end. Rather, one big push is coming (or has come) and "American Hustle" is being given one last chance to shine.

David O. Russell Jennifer Lawrence American Hustle
Everything has a story, even the lowly Miracle Mop. But who would've thought the QVC bestselling product could be the basis of a movie? Well, "Bridesmaids" writer Annie Mumulo thought so. Indeed she wrote a script about Joy Mangano, the inventor of the Miracle Mop, who worked three jobs before seeing her invention become a sensation, bringing her from rags to riches. And now that screenplay and story is getting a big league boost.

Oscars: The Best Underrated Performances By The 2014 Acting Noms
With the Oscar nominations out, and the SAGs and Golden Globes a few weeks in the past, we're entering something of a quiet phase in awards season, with the Academy not even due to begin voting for a few weeks yet. So it seems like a good time to look back.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
It would seem that Empire has a hotline right to the good stuff when it comes to "X-Men: Days Of Future Past." Earlier this week, they debuted an (absurd) 25 magazine covers featuring the cast of characters from the upcoming superhero pileup (including one for Rogue, who has been cut from the movie), and now they've got a handful of new stills from the flick.

Gravity 12 Years A Slave
For a minute, it looked as if the race might be over. David O. Russell's "American Hustle" (and the way that that phrase rhymes alone makes us glad it's a Best Picture nominee) had the momentum going into the Oscar nominations last week, and had even more after it: ten nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and four acting nods, one in each category, only the second movie to achieve that feat in the last thirty years (Russell's previous film, "Silver Linings Playbook," being the other).
