Top Oscar Moment: Ben Stiller

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Celebrity Gossip,

Ben Still and Natalie Portman

The Academy Awards ceremony is always the biggest night in Hollywood. The movie elite put on their fancy clothes, get decked out in diamonds and spend an entire evening patting each other on the back even as they continue to entertain us, the viewers. Thanks.

It’s supposed to be a glittery, glamorous event where the movies of a single year are celebrated - and sure, it is that. It is also an opportunity to see the stars in their finest hour and in their finery, a chance to decide which movies we ought to rent at the video store and a reason to scream at the TV (“I can’t believe that movie won again!”).

It’s hours and hours of award-giving, speech-making and montage-playing, and for the most part it’s pretty boring. But in between all that filler there are a few moments that are worth noticing. At this year’s Oscar ceremony, there was one moment which is sure to live on in Internet video clip history for a long, long time. I’m talking about the greatest moment of the night - acceptance speeches notwithstanding.

Joaquin Phoenix Dropping Out of Acting Game

Joaquin Phoenix

UPDATE: Several sources are now claiming that Phoenix’s new rapping career is an elaborate hoax.

, who appeared in Signs and Ladder 49, among other films, is going to stop being an actor.

The brother to River Phoenix made the shocking announcement to the press Tuesday while promoting his new film Two Lovers. In the film, Phoenix, 34, plays opposite actress . “I’m not doing films anymore,” he told Extra during an interview. “This will be my last performance as an actor.”

This is either a very surprising development in a highly celebrated film career, or one helluva way to promote a flick. Without going into detail, Phoenix said he will now be devoting his time to music. In what capacity remains unclear.

Phoenix has been nominated for the Academy Award twice, once for the leading role in Walk the Line and once for his supporting role in Gladiator.

Box Office Breakdown: Saw Slices Its Way to #1

Saw IV

This weekend’s success of proved that ‘torture porn’ is very much alive and well…at least right before All Hallows Eve.  (Apparently originality is not a prerequisite when you’re in the haunting mood.)  The horror series, which took in $55 million domestically when it debuted in 2004, bloodied the competition with its recent $31 million take.  It will now likely hit the $80 million mark the last two installments surpassed.

Although , lagged behind with only $11 million, the film at least managed to place second.  Hopefully Dan will have legs in the weeks to come; it’s a nice counter-programming option for those desperately seeking romance on their date nights.  Those hunting for acceptable kids fare may have it a bit harder though—- which probably explains why has remained firmly planted in the Top Five.

Box Office Breakdown: 30 Days of Night Sucks Up the Competition

30 Days of Night

I never thought I would ever find myself writing this:  ‘A Josh Hartnett-led film has opened at #1.’  Of course, he did have a little help from a vampire or two..

The horror film, , had an impressive debut for what was actually an unimpressive weekend.  With only $16 million, the Alaskan-set vampire flick beat out a host of movies filled with Oscar-nominated stars.  Ben Affleck’s well-reviewed directorial debut, , opened up in 6th place.  , starring are-they-or-aren’t-they-dating Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal, barely cracked the Top Ten.  Meanwhile, placed a dismal 15th despite the presence of Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro (and promotion on Oprah).

The success of 30 Days and the surprise return of - which placed 8th even though it was only in 564 theaters - clearly spells out the audience’s need for some Halloween fare.  This bodes well for the release of which opens next weekend.  (Yay!)
