Courtney Stodden comes out as bisexual and confirms her and Doug Hutchison are over


In a recent interview with US Weekly, Courtney Stodden confirmed that she and Doug Hutchison officially called things quits about three months ago. She continued saying that the breakup has been really hard and that emotions are still very high. The decision did not come lightly as she felt that they had been through so much together, citing the miscarriage that she had last year, but that they had been struggling for some time.

In another interview (posted above) Courtney continued saying that she hopes 2017 will bring good things as 2016 was so rough for her. She states that she's single and dating. When asked about what she looks for in a man she responded, "I think I just want to have fun and I like guys who are funny and you know successful... and girls too I mean I'm bi so why not some girls too?"

The directors nominated for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar react to Trump's travel ban


  • When the ban was put in place nominee and Iranian director Asghar Farhadi announced that he would not attend the ceremony (unclear if he's changed his mind since then).

  • The Swedish nominee also leaned that his lead actress would not be able to attend the ceremony because she has dual Swedish-Iranian citizenship.

  • All of them oppose the ban.

  • Sweden's nominee Hannes Holm thinks a boycott is pointless because Trump voters don't care about the Oscars.

ONTD Original: Oscar Nominated Horror & Sci-Fi Films Based on Books





Next weekend is the 89th Academy Awards! While the Academy is notorious for snubbing genre films, occasionally those in the sci-fi/horror will receive acknowledgment for their contribution to cinema. This year, the critically acclaimed sci-fi film Arrival has received eight nominations, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. Arrival is based on “The Story of Your Life,” which was written by celebrated science fiction author Ted Chiang. You can read the Nebula-award winning short story in Chiang’s superb collection, Stories of Your Life and Others. That one of my favorite stories was able to come alive so beautifully on the screen and nominated for Best Picture got me thinking: What other sci-fi and horror stories (emphasis on horror, because that’s my favorite) have become Oscar noms and wins? Let’s find out in my non-exhaustive list and add some books to our To Be Read shelf! (And if you’re looking for a book to read for the April task of our ONTD Reading Challenge, which is to read an Oscar nominated film based on a book, this post could be helpful...!)

- At the premiere Angelina said "I cannot find words to express what it means to me that I was entrusted with telling part of the story of this country. This film was not made to focus on the horrors of the past, but to celebrate the resilience, kindness and talent of the Cambodian people. Most of all, this film is my way of saying thank you to Cambodia. Without Cambodia I may never have become a mother. Part of my heart is and will always be in this country.

Aaron Carter attacked on stage by his own opening act for racism


  • Aaron Carter was playing a show at the Looney Bin in Bradley, Illinois

  • Ill State was his opening act

  • Aaron was mad because a member of Ill State, Haze Carbajal, was taking videos and goofing around while he was trying to perform

  • Aaron had Haze removed by security and yelled "Bye Felipe" as he left

  • Haze reacted by beating Aaron up on stage and damaging a computer and speaker

  • Aaron was bloody and transported to a hospital, but he says he's okay now and that the police are investigating

  • Haze addressed the incident saying that "Felipe is a Mexican name and the manner in which he said it was indeed racist if you see the video. I myself come from the south side of Chicago and am no stranger to being racially profiled and discriminated so his remarks got me really angry, especially during these times when racism is so prevalent and people think they can say what they want with no repercussions."

Cary Fukunaga in Negotiations to Direct Universal's Shockwave film

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Universal in talks with Cary Fukunaga to direct a film based upon Stephen Walker's "Shockwave: Countdown to Hiroshima.

If all goes the way the studio wants, Fukunaga will direct the film based on a script by Hossein Amini (Drive) that adapts Stephen Walker's non-fiction book.

The book follows the events leading up to the bombs that were detonated above the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. The film would likely include those working on the Manhattan project that kicked off the Atomic Age, the scientists who worked in the hopes of beating the Nazis to develop the technology and the Presidential decisions to use the terrible weapons.

Zoe Saldana Talks Battling Racism and Sexism in Hollywood




franchise market
She prefers to do movies set in the future, and set an example for younger women because she is not playing the girlfriend but someone tougher. Future = hope.

films set in the past
she loves Jane Austen's adaptations but someone who looks like her does not exist in a positive way because of how she would have been treated.

historical dramas
She is Puerto Rican and Dominican so she is either too dark or too light to be cast in historical dramas. Those films lack nuance because racism is used as a plot device or glamorized.

Emma Watson admits she struggled to get out of bed amid #HeForShe backlash

from her new Elle interview:

“It’s difficult to hear criticism from people you consider your peers and who you believe are on the same side”.

“There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress…but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that’s a completely different ball game.”

“There were a couple of days when I just didn’t want to come out from under the duvet."

“At first I wasn’t sure if I should allow myself to be upset by it, but then I realised I needed to give myself 24 hours to sulk, and then move forward.”

“Whether you are a woman on a tea plantation in Kenya, or a stockbroker on Wall Street, or a Hollywood actress, no one is being paid equally”.
