Our Early Oscar Predictions

12 Years a Slave Fox Searchlight

The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival is in our rearview, which means we've seen roughly 37 percent of this year's Oscar-nominated films, by official guesstimation. So let's make some predictions!

Like most years, an Oscar frontrunner has emerged from the wreckage of the fests in both Toronto and Telluride. Last year it was "Argo," the year before "The Descendants"; this year pundits are screaming the praises of Steve McQueen's hard-hitting drama, "12 Years a Slave."

Can it hold on to that buzz for the next 12 years of Oscar campaigning, though? We shall see. Early favorites in BOLD.

Seth MacFarlane has decided not to host the Oscars again ... again.

Last month, 2014 Academy Awards producing duo Craig Zadan and Neil Meron all but begged the "Family Guy" funnyman to come back for another turn on the Oscars stage after he'd already said "no way" to the idea before — it was on Twitter, but it was still a definite answer — and while he has admitted to at least considering a second chance at the job of mocking celebutantes as they collect Hollywood's most elite prizes, it's just not going to happen.

The MTV Movie Awards turns 22 this Sunday, April 14, which means yes, our beloved awards show has been drinking legally for a year.

In people years, the MTV Movie Awards still wouldn't be able to rent a car at the regular rate; but in the accolades-passing-out universe, 22 consecutive years of awarding popcorn statues to the A-list, producing the funniest movie spoofs ever, trying to wrangle Jim Carrey through his many stunts and witnessing the horror that was Borat's booty in Eminem's face has made it one of the most fun, most can't-be-missed awards shows in all Awards Show Land.

'This Is the End': Rihanna Really 'Slapped the S**t Out Of' Michael Cera

New apocacomedy "This Is the End" may be based on the (hopefully) fictitious end of the world, but one part of the movie definitely was real: Michael Cera's sore face.

In the red band trailer for "This Is the End," the twee Canadian slaps pop dinger Rihanna's read, and she gives him a smack of her own — across the face.
