Did you know that Eminem has more Oscars than Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp? Combined? Eminem won the Oscar for Best Song (“Lose Yourself”) in 2003, but didn’t even bother showing up to the awards presentation because he thought there was no chance we’d ever win. This and more on Eminem and ‘8 Mile’ in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
The morning of the Oscar nominations is a stressful time; we can certainly attest to that. Everything is happening so quickly and there are a lot of strange names to spell and pronounce and you have to do it really quickly. Tell it to Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who accidentally announced "Dick Poop" as an Oscar nominee this morning.
Well, that was interesting. Just when you think you've got the Oscars figured out, they throw you a huge curve ball. Or, maybe what's so surprising about this year's nominations is how nothing is really different?
In case you hadn’t heard, the new ‘Avengers 2’ trailer is here. If you haven’t yet, you should watch it—it’s quite entertaining. If you have already, good you’re in the right place. We’ve gone through this trailer a few times and pulled out some of the more interesting elements to dissect and discuss. We’re not literally going to screencap every single moment (no one needs to see a shot of Tony Stark walking with our commentary of, “Here’s Tony Stark walking…”), just the ones that need highlighting and could reveal some things about the secrets of ‘Avengers 2’. Ready? (Spoilers ahead, obviously.)
With ‘Casino Royale’, ‘Quantum of Solace’ and ‘Skyfall’, the Daniel Craig era of the James Bond movies has been the most successful films of the entire franchise on both a critical and commercial level. That's pretty good for an actor a lot of Bond fans hated when he was originally cast (The Daily Mirror in London ran the headline “The Name's Bland. James Bland.”). With the next installment in Craig's 007 series—‘Spectre’—set for release in November, we thought we'd take a look back at the previous three films in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
When the Golden Globes handed out their Best Picture award for the finest musical and/or comedy of 2014, they chose ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel,’ Wes Anderson’s story of legendary concierge Gustave H, at the titular hotel.
Having killed it with their Golden Globes hosting duties for the last two years, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again turned out some memorable jokes. Including, yes, another hilarious burn at the expense of George Clooney. Watch their full opening monologue from the 2015 Golden Globes awards right here!
The 2015 Golden Globes winners will be revealed during the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted awards ceremony, broadcast live on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST on NBC.
The 2015 Golden Globes winners are considered somewhat of a primer for the upcoming Oscars (both of which feature many of the same big Hollywood names and movies of the past year), but not exactly a perfect predictor either. Many movies and actors have won at the Golden Globes only to not even be nominated at the Oscars.
Check out the full list of 2015 Golden Globes winners below—which we'll bold as soon as they're announced on the telecast—and let us know what you think in the comments. Did your picks win big?
‘Terminator 2’, James Cameron’s sequel to his cult hit from 1984, had a budget of $94 million. That may not sound like much these days when Michael Bay movies routinely cost over $200 million, but in 1991, when ‘Terminator 2’ first opened in theaters, it was the most expensive movie ever made (this was even more impressive considering that the original ‘Terminator’ cost only $6 million to make). A good chunk of that money went to star Arnold Schwarzenegger who was paid a then-record $15 million, plus they bought him a private jet! Want to know more? No problemo, just watch the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
Now is the time of year when there a lot of great movies; just a look through our Best Movies of 2014 lists is proof of that much.

It’s been almost 30 years since the last ‘Mad Max’ movie hit theaters in 1985. That's a long time since ‘Thunderdome’ but with ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, the franchise is making a major comeback (albeit with a different Max Rockatansky). Need to catch up on your ‘Mad Max’ knowledge? You can get a primer on all things ‘Mad Max’ in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on George Miller’s dystopian trilogy. It’s time to remember The Road Warrior. The man we called “Max”…
There’s no consensus on what the best Christmas movie of all-time is, but ‘Elf‘ would have to be up there with the best of them. Released in 2003, the film has gone on to become a bonafide classic, watched as many times over the holidays as ‘A Christmas Story’ or ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. Do you share an affinity for elf culture? Now you can test your ‘Elf’ knowledge with the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
