We Predict This Year's Oscar Meme & Look Back at Past Meme-orable Moments

Originally posted 02/27/2014 08:30AM

If you were looking for information that could actually help you win your Oscars pool, this isn't the place. (Here, this will get you started.)

Sure, we're anxious to see who will come out on top in the battle of Lupita Nyong'o vs. Jennifer Lawrence (or, as well call it, Most Charming Category Ever). We're just as curious to see which film will take home Best Picture honors. But, more importantly, which meme will win the night?

It's already been a hairy, heel-tossing and sing-songy awards show season that's produced no shortage of meme-orable moments.

Historic Steel Magnolias House for Sale

Historic Steel Magnolias House for Sale

Calling all house-hunting movie buffs: If you recognize the source of this line – "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize" – and appreciate Southern architecture, get your bids ready.

The historic Louisiana residence where the all-star 1989 movie Steel Magnolias was filmed is being placed on the auction block Oct. 26, along with all the antiques and furnishings inside it.

Built in 1840, the movie stomping ground of Shirley MacLaine, Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis, Daryl Hannah and Julia Roberts in the town of Natchitoches was used as a hospital during the Civil War and recently operated as a bed-and-breakfast. Like the women in the movie, it epitomizes Southern character – genteel on the outside but strong of foundation.

Academy Award Nominations: Lincoln Leads the Pack

Originally posted 01/10/2013 08:15AM

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.

And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.

Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.

Let's settle the debate. Did we need a Spidey reboot five years after his last outing? Nope. This Spider-Man's solid script and capable effects simply aren't vibrant enough to warrant rehashing high-school shutterbug Peter Parker's life-altering spider bite. The performances, though – now those are extraordinary.

Start with the supporting cast. For gravitas, Martin Sheen and Sally Field play parental figures Uncle Ben and Aunt May, with Sheen giving Ben the fiery righteousness needed to orient Peter's moral compass in darker days.

Rhys Ifans adds nuanced edge as mad scientist Curt Connors, while Dennis Leary stiffens his spine as police captain George Stacy, out to nab a certain web-slinging vigilante.
