‘Birdman’ flies over Oscars 2015, Full List of Winners

America Ferrera,, Anna Kendrick and Josh Hutcherson

“Birdman” soared late at the 87th Academy Awards, winning the big prize — best picture.

“This guy is as bold as bold could be,” said star Michael Keaton, referring to director and co-writer Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

The film also won three other honors: directing, cinematography and original screenplay. Inarritu is the second straight Mexican to win director, after “Gravity’s” Alfonso Cuaron.

David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris

“Two Mexicans in a row — that’s suspicious,” Inarritu joked.

Eddie Redmayne won best actor for his performance as the ALS-afflicted scientist Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything.” Julianne Moore won best actress for her performance in “Still Alice.”

Patricia Arquette

“Boyhood” performer Patricia Arquette won best supporting actress — and made sure that her award was a call for equality.

“We have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all. And equal rights for women in the United Stares of America,” she said, to rousing applause.

David Oyelowo and Michael Keaton

Her activist message also resonated online.

Also resonating was a stirring speech by Common and John Legend, who won best song for “Glory.” Their performance of “Glory” brought star David Oyelowo to tears.

‘Call your mom, call your dad’

The best supporting actor Oscar went to J.K. Simmons of “Whiplash.”

The longtime character actor — known to audiences for his roles in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man,” the TV show “The Closer” and ads for Farmers Insurance and M&Ms, among many others — paid tribute to his family in his speech, praising his wife and his “above-average” children.

Cate Blanchett

He also put in a plug for actual phone calls.

“Call your mom, call your dad; don’t text, don’t email; tell them you love them,” he said.

Sophie Hunter, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ethan Hawke, Jennifer Aniston and Emma Stone

Host Neil Patrick Harris tweaked him by humming the Farmers theme as Simmons left the stage.

“Whiplash” won three Oscars, winning sound mixing and film editing along with supporting actor. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” has four Oscars — for score, production design, costume design and makeup.

JK Simmons

“Big Hero 6″ won best animated feature. “Citizenfour” won best documentary feature.

Director Laura Poitras thanked the film’s subject, Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor who leaked classified files and earned the ire of the government. An attempt at a pun from Harris — Snowden couldn’t be at the Oscars “for some treason” — got immediate pushback online.

“The Imitation Game” won adapted screenplay.

NPH leads with jokes

The Oscars — the “epicenter of noise and world attention,” as “Ida” director Pawel Pawlikowski called them — wasted no time at poking fun at some of the big issues facing Hollywood: diversity, economics and self-involvement.

Harris led off the show with a joke about the lack of diversity among the acting nominees.

“This year we honor Hollywood’s best and whitest — sorry, brightest,” he joked.

Then, in a mammoth opening number, he and Anna Kendrick were joined by Jack Black, who angrily hopped on stage to throw a sarcastic wet blanket over their hailing of “Moving Pictures,” noting that the business is as much about “raising tents with tentpoles and chasing Chinese bucks” than it is about art.

He was summarily dismissed by Harris.

The host also wandered into the audience, greeting two seat fillers among the celebrities, and at one point parodied “Birdman” by walking through the backstage area in his underwear — right onto the stage.

The show aired from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

Kim Kardashian looks crazy skinny in her latest TBT pic!

The 34-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to Instagram today to share a bikini photo of herself for throwback Thursday. “#TWTFBT I’m throwing this way the f–k back Thursday #MissTeenArmenian,” Kanye West‘s other half captioned the sexy snapshot.

In the photo, Kim rocks a tiny sequined two-piece swimsuit that shows a whole lotta skin. The mother of one’s stomach looks super flat and her waist very skinny as she models the barely-there bikini at her house. In addition to flaunting her slim figure, Kim also shows off her ample cleavage.

While Kim joked that she looks like “Miss Teen Armenian,” we could definitely she her winning a beauty pageant in this sexy swimsuit look!

Kim also posted pics of Nori playing the piano in her tut. Too darn cute.

That Was the Lebanese Hyper-car “Lykan Hypersport” In The Fast And Furious 7 Trailer!

LykanHypersport

Maybe you thought it was a Zenvo in the Furious 7 Super Bowl trailer. Maybe you thought it was a Marussia B2. Maybe you were really high and thought it was a Youbian Puma. Nope, it was Lykan Hypersport!

It is worth mentioning that this car was manufactured by the Lebanese company (W Motors), a Dubai based firm. It’s a 6 Cylinder Turbo Engine with 750 HP.

The Lebanese company is now working on a new generation with 20 more HP.

The super Arab Lykan Hypersport car accelerates from 0 to 60 (100 Km/h) in 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 395 Km/h!

Box Office: ‘American Sniper’ Still no. 1 and Sets Super Bowl Record!

Iraq War saga wins 3rd straight weekend with $31.8 million and routs “Project Almanac,” Kevin Costner’s “Black or White” and “The Loft”

“American Sniper” added best Super Bowl weekend ever to its list of box-office records Sunday, claiming its third consecutive weekend win with an estimated $31.8 million.

To do it, the Iraq War saga had to outscore “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour,” which rung up $31.1 million for Disney in 2008.

The Clint Eastwood-directed drama starring Bradley Cooper has rewritten the record book since it began a box-office blitz on Jan. 16, one day after it earned six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Actor.

After posting the best wide opening ever for the Martin Luther King holiday weekend and the month of January, “Ameican Sniper” will have rolled up nearly $250 million domestically in 17 days. It’s already passed“Saving Private Ryan” as the highest-grossing war movie ever, and it will be the top-grossing R-rated movie of all time if it can pass the $370.7 million domestic total that Mel Gibson’s “Passion of the Christ” rung up in 2004.

The weekend’s three wide openers all finished behind “Paddington,” the family comedy about the British bear from “Harry Potter” producer David Heyman. It was second with $8.7 million in its third week for the Weinstein Company.

The time-travel tale “Project Almanac” followed in third with a disappointing $8.5 million from 2,893 theaters in its debut for Paramount Pictures. “Black or White,” Kevin Costner‘s race relations drama, opened in fourth with $6.4 million from 1,823 theaters for Relativity Studios. And the R-rated thriller “The Loft” wound up tenth, taking in $2.8 million from 1,841 theaters for Open Road Films.

A special run of the hit HBO TV series “Game of Thrones” on 205 Imax theaters brought in an estimated $1.5 million. The giant screen version of the medieval fantasy averaged  $7,300 per-screen, behind the $8,805 that  “American Sniper” averaged on the remaining 165 Imax screens.

The overall box office was running roughly 20 percent ahead of last year’s Super Bowl weekend, when “Ride Along” won its third straight with $12 million. Overall, the domestic box office is running more than 9 percent aead of 2014, after “American Sniper” drove one of the better months of January ever.

Paramount was hoping for more from “Project Almanac,” which is about a group of teens who build a time machine. The young crowd was the target audience for the film, and around 63 percent of the crowd was under 25. The audience, which was 55 percent male, gave it “B” CinemaScore.

The film’s modest $12 million production budget will take some of the sting out of the soft debut for the studio, its Insurge Pictures and producers Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.

Costner produced and starred in “Black or White,” the PG-13-rated drama about a lawyer battling for custody of his biracial grand-daughter. The best news from the first weekend for the film, which co-stars Octavia Spencer, might be the “A-” CinemaScore awarded it by audiences. That should help it in coming weeks, particularly with the older crowd that it played best with.

The audience was 64 percent female and 78 percent over the age of 25. Around 53 percent of the crowd was Caucasian and 30 percent African-American.

“The Loft,” Belgian director Erik Van Looy’s English-language remake of his Dutch thriller, had a rare zero rating on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes coming in and bombed. Karl Urban, James Marsden and Eric Stonestreet of TV’s “Modern Family” starred.

The Jennifer Lopez thriller “The Boy Next Door” was fifth with a $6 million second week for Universal Pictures. That’s a nearly 60 percent fall from its opening weekend but still puts its domestic total at nearly $25 million, not bad given its $4 million production budget.

The Kevin Hart-Josh Gad comedy “The Wedding Ringer” followed with $5.7 million and is up to $48 million after three weeks for Sony’s Screen Gems.

Things got a little better in the second week for “Strange Magic,” the animated musical produced by “Star Wars” creator George Lucas that tanked in its debut last weekend. It’s on pace to take in $3.4 million for the three days, a 38 percent drop that gives it a $9.9 million domestic total.

The same can’t be said for Johnny Depp’s “Mortdecai.”

The ensemble comedy tumbled out of the top ten and brought in an anemic $1.4 million for the weekend, a steep 66 percent drop from its disastrous debut last weekend. That leaves its domestic total at less than $7 million for Lionsgate Entertainment, not good for a movie with a $40 million production budget.

“The Imitation Game” took in $5.2 million and finished seventh after Weinstein added 377 locations to give the Benedict Cumberbatch historical drama its highest theater total yet, at 2,402.

Its domestic total is nearly $68 million after 10 weeks. Other than “American Sniper,” that’s the best of any Best Picture Oscar contender.
