Of the four speeches from last nights Academy Awards acting categories, J.K. Simmons was my favorite. We’d heard him say some of the same things back when he won his SAG Award but the whole ‘call your parents’ moment really got me. Did I call my parents? No, but that’s because I’m a jackass. But it was still a lovely moment. Eddie Redmayne‘s was fun as well. That moment when he jumped up and down was really nice. Patricia Arquette and Julianne Moore are just two wonderful human beings, aren’t they? Besides being terrific actresses, they are smart and caring ... Read more

Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, committing to star in Richard Linklater's Boyhood was an easy decision.
Actors often have trouble committing to projects that might take several months of their time. However, Patricia Arquette and the cast of Boyhood has that beat — the movie was filmed in pieces over the course of twelve years as it follows the youth of a young boy, Mason, and his family. Boyhood was written and directed by Richard Linklater — who has constantly pushed the boundaries of filmmaking throughout his career — and stars Arquette as Mason’s mother. She spoke to Vulture about the emotions she felt during the decade-plus she worked on the film, including shooting the final ... Read more
