Ellen's sitting pretty in official Oscars poster

Yep, we’re really in the thick of awards stew: The Golden Globes take place this Sunday. The SAG Awards are next Saturday. The Producers Guild Awards are the day after that, followed six days later by the Directors Guild Awards. And just a few weeks later, everything will build to a fever pitch when we finally reach the season’s biggest, glitziest event: the BAFTAs.

Just kidding! (Unless you happen to be reading this from the U.K., in which case… I’m still just kidding.) I’m speaking, of course, about the 86th Annual Academy Awards, which will be helmed by repeat host Ellen DeGeneres. And just to stoke your excitement further, the Academy has just released the show’s first official poster — featuring a relaxed, smiley DeGeneres wearing a snazzy tux and hanging with her pal Oscar. As she told her pal Justin Timberlake via Twitter:

Anne Hathaway on her Oscar nomination and 'I Dreamed a Dream': 'It's a howl'

Anne Hathaway’s Best Supporting Actress nomination seemed a foregone conclusion — and most Oscar pundits agree that the award itself is hers to lose. But there was a time when Hathaway’s performance wasn’t such a sure thing.

Claude-Michele Schönberg’s Les Mis has been performed countless times since its premiere in the ’80s — and the part of virtuous Fantine, a factory worker whose fall from grace leads to one of the show’s most emotional moments, had been played by some of the theater world’s biggest names, including powerhouses Patti LuPone, Randy Graff, and Lea Salonga.

So how did Hathaway manage to put her own stamp on such an iconic role? “I was really lucky to get to sing a great song, period. But I was also lucky to be the first person to sing it on film,” the actress told EW this morning. She also noted that director Tom Hooper and his team placed “I Dreamed a Dream” later in the film than it appears in the stage show, “so I got to sing it from a more raw place than anyone had ever gotten to sing it before.”

Seth MacFarlane joins elite list of Oscar hosts-slash-nominees

Congratulations, Seth MacFarlane — you’ve just become a historical footnote.

The Family Guy creator was nominated for an Oscar this morning, when Ted‘s “Everybody Needs a Best Friend” snagged a spot in the Best Song category. That makes MacFarlane the sixth person in Oscar history to both host and be nominated for a competitive award during the same ceremony. More importantly, MacFarlane is the only person who’s managed to achieve this feat while serving as the event’s solo host.

Host-slash-nominees — hominees? — are more common at Emmys or the Tonys than the Oscars, since those other ceremonies are more likely to be hosted by performers who work in the same medium as the awards being given. It’s interesting, then, that only two years have passed since a same-night Oscar nominee last took the stage as host — in 2011, Best Actor contender James Franco tested his emcee skills with co-host Anne Hathaway at the 83rd annual awards. (And we all know how that turned out.)

Dean Devlin on the recently announced 'Godzilla' reboot: 'I know I screwed up my Godzilla'

One of the biggest surprises at Comic-Con earlier this month was 
Legendary Pictures' splashy debut of its reboot of the Godzilla franchise, complete with a jaw-dropping concept reel and the introduction of the film's director, Gareth Edwards. The British filmmaker, whose only previous feature directing credit is the indie thriller Monsters, wasted no time making clear his film would not be a retread of the 1998 big-budget remake of Godzilla. That movie, from writer-producer Dean Devlin and writer-director Roland Emmerich, was widely derided for being too silly and cheesy"We're going to take it seriously," Edwards told the Comic-Con crowd of his version of the Japanese monster movie staple. "It's very grounded [and]

realistic.”

When EW caught up with Devlin at the Saturn Awards on Thursday night, we asked him what his thoughts were when he heard about Legendary’s new take on the venerable fire-breathing, city-demolishing giant lizard. READ FULL STORY

'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' 'Super 8,' 'Breaking Bad,' and 'Fringe' win big at the Saturn Awards

Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Super 8, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 may have been skunked when it came time to hand out Academy Awards, but they cleaned up but good at the Saturn Awards, which honor the best in science fiction, fantasy, and horror. At a ceremony Thursday night in Burbank, Calif., Rise of the Planet of the Apes won Best Science Fiction Film, as well as Best Supporting Actor (for Andy Serkis’ motion capture performance as the sentient ape Caesar), and Best Visual Effects. Super 8‘s director (J.J. Abrams), composer (Michael Giacchino), and young star (Joel Courtney) all earned Saturn trophies. And the final Harry Potter film took home the Best Fantasy Film Award.

In the television category, Fringe won best network TV show, Breaking Bad best syndicated or cable TV show, and The Walking Dead best TV presentation (a category for anything lasting 10 episodes or less). Director and actor Frank Oz, and actor James Remar both won Life Career Awards; writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) won the Filmmakers Showcase Award; and The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman won the first ever Innovator Award.

MTV Movie Awards: 'Project X' star Oliver Cooper campaigning for Best On-Screen Dirtbag -- VIDEO

While Academy Awards may be the foremost accolades for cinematic achievement, they are marred every year by the rabid For Your Consideration campaigns that saturate the industry. To mask the crassness of begging people to vote for you, the ads are dressed up with classy photography, and governed by strict rules of what can and cannot be said. For one thing, you cannot trash another fellow nominee: No negative campaigning allowed.

The blissfully irreverent MTV Movie Awards have no such concerns. Each year, the fan-voted honors always include an especially tongue-in-cheek category — Best Dance Sequence, Best Scared-as-S**t Performance, Best Sandwich in a Movie — and this year, one of the nominees is mounting what may be the first ever campaign to win one. Project X‘s Oliver Cooper is by far the least known of his fellow nominees for Best On-Screen Dirtbag – Horrible Bosses‘ Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell, Bridesmaids‘ Jon Hamm, and The Help‘s Bryce Dallas Howard — so he has no problem casting aspersions on his competition’s qualifications of dirt-baggery.
