Cate Blanchett Was “a Couple Sheets to the Wind” While Giving Her Golden Globes Acceptance Speech

Cate Blanchett, Golden Globes 2014, Winner Cate Blanchett did admit she had a “few vodkas under her belt” during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes. But the Blue Jasmine star is revealing a bit more about her evening leading up to her winning moment.

“Unfortunately my category came up rather late in the evening so I was a couple of sheets to the wind,” the Aussie actress told The Telegraph with a laugh. “Once your name is read out it’s a high like no other so I can’t remember a lot. I hope I didn’t do too many things I’ll regret.”

This makes sense because this is the Golden Globes, the film-and-TV extravaganza where celebs are encouraged to drink (and in some cases can’t even be bothered to leave their liquor behind when they take the stage).

As for the award, the blond beauty dished “the Globe is in the hotel room and my sons made a little shrine for it with all the flowers that I have been receiving for the past week that are now dead.”

Blanchett is on a winning streak this awards season and raking up the accolades for her role in Woody Allen’s comedy-drama.

During her SAG Awards acceptance speech, Blanchett took the stage to start giving her thanks. However, she was only onstage for a few moments when the teleprompter let her know that didn’t have much time left.

The Hobbit World Premiere: Peter Jackson, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett Celebrate in New Zealand

One premiere to rule them all and in the darkness bind them.

Middle-earth mania was in full force as an estimated 100,000 Kiwis turned out to hailPeter Jackson and stars Martin Freeman,Hugo Weaving, Andy Serkis and Cate Blanchett at the world premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Wednesday night in the New Zealand capital of Wellington.

Animal cruelty allegations cast shadow over Hobbit premiere as Peter Jackson again denies claims

The blockbuster, the first installment of a new trilogy that’s serving as a prequel to the director’s trio of Oscar-winning Lord of the Rings films, earned rave reviews from those in attendance at its first showing at the Embassy Theatre, whose entrance was decorated to look like a Hobbit house.

Excited fans—many of whom wore homemade hobbit feet, elven cloaks and wizard costumes—cheered as Jackson and company walked a massive red carpet. Along with new cast members including Richard Armitage, who plays the dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield, were veterans of the first trilogy, among them Elijah Wood, who briefly reprises his role as Frodo in The Hobbit and lavished praise on Freeman in the lead as Bilbo Baggins.

“He was brilliant, the right amount of funny,” Wood told The Hollywood Reporter. “He has strange qualities but also real heart. He is the heart of the movie, and he really pulled it off.”

For his part, Jackson was extremely humbled by The Hobbit‘s reception.

“It’s great to have so many people come out to celebrate the movie,” the filmmaker told the New York Daily News. “It’s very humbling. New Zealand is a very small country, it’s a very young country. I just think we like to celebrate when we punch above our weight. We sometimes do quite well in sports, and now we’re doing OK in moviemaking too.”

It was quite a welcome switch-up from the mood a few hours earlier at a Hobbit press conference, where Jackson again denied claims that two-dozen animals died during production due to poor conditions on a farm where they were housed.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters in the U.S. on Dec. 14.

Kristen Bell Shows Off Baby Bump Days Ahead of Pregnancy Announcement

Kristen Bell shows off her baby bump

Oh, baby! Kristen Bell may have been keeping the news of her pregnancy under wraps, but she didn’t seem to playing it all that secret with her baby bump.

The expectant mama was spotted out sans her fiancé and baby-daddy-to-be Dax Shepard in Glendale, Calif., last week, just days ahead of her happy announcement.

Get all the details on Kristen and Dax’s impending stork delivery

Bell was spotted engaging in a little retail therapy at the Americana shopping center, and didn’t seem too concerned about covering up her (albeit still quite petite) baby bump when she was caught out by paparazzi. And if the bump wasn’t a giveaway, then that gorgeous glow certainly should’ve been.

In any case, while baby will obviously be more than provided for, judging by the shopping bags Kristen was loaded up with, this particular excursion was clearly a self-pampering endeavor. Well deserved, we’d say.

Congrats, Kristen and Dax! That’s gonna be one lucky kid. If Bell gets that emotional over a sloth, just think how besotted she’s gonna be with her own baby.

Disney Not Stopping at Star Wars 7: 3 Films and More Coming!

 

George Lucas in works with Disney for more Star Wars films

George Lucas in works with Disney for more Star Wars films

George Lucas’ original vision is going to become a reality.

After initially offering up the promise of a seventh Star Wars film in 2015, Disney—which bought Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion this week—revealed today that Episode 78 and 9 are in the works.

The Mouse House is planning on releasing the ensuing sequels every two to three years, Disney chief exec Robert Iger said in a conference call with reporters.

Back when Lucas was announcing plans for Star Wars: Episode 1—The Phantom Menace back in the 1990s (those high expectations we harbored were so long ago), he indicated that he envisioned both three prequels and three sequels to kick off and cap off his seminal trilogy.

And now, Disney is looking to make it happen.

The mega-brand is also interested in developing new Star Wars properties for its theme parks (what, improve on Star Tours?!) and Disney XD network.

“We love the fact that this will take its place in our live-action strategy as a known and loved brand,” Iger said. “We really like Star Wars potential on TV, and Disney XD would be a great home for that.”

But while Lucas characterized the Disney buyout as a changing of the guard, veteran producer and current Lucasfilm cochair Kathleen Kennedy isn’t moving to a galaxy far, far away—she’ll remain as president under Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn and executive-produce the coming Star Wars films.

And, of course, Lucas created the whole universe, so…his name won’t be forgotten.

James Bond Bisexual: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem On Alleged Homoerotic ‘Skyfall’ Scene

Daniel-Craig-Javier-Bardem-Pictures-Announce-Start-Bond

Is Javier Bardem the first “Bond boy”?

Speculation over what has been described as an “erotically-charged scene” in which Bardem’s character Silva apparently caresses the torso of James Bond (Daniel Craig) in the latest installment of the 007 franchise, “Skyfall,” has been rampant in the weeks leading up the movie’s Nov. 9 release.

Now Craig is setting the record straight, albeit somewhat coyly, in a new Movieline interview. Describing the scene as “a great flirt” and “a game of cards,” the actor says, “Someone suggested that Silva may be gay. And I’m like, I think he’ll f*** anything.”

Craig, who said that he “loves the scene,” also noted, ” I don’t see the world in sexual divisions.”

As for Bardem, the Spanish actor noted that while Silva’s sexuality was “part of the game,” his goal as the character was simply to create “uncomfortable situations” for the other players. “Within that, you can read anything that you want or wish,” he said. “But it was more about putting the other person in a very uncomfortable situation where even James Bond doesn’t know how to get out of it.”

You can read the full Movieline interview here.

It should be noted that the torture scene in 2006’s “Casino Royale” — in which a naked Bond is strapped to a bottomless chair while being whipped in the genitals bythe villainous Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) — was also noted for its “homoerotic” subtext.
