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.
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.

As detailed by Cinema Blend, yesterday producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron were confirmed to return for the 2014 Oscars and are rumored to have asked MacFarlane to give the show another go. Get More »

Receiving an invitation to the Oscars is great. Receiving an invitation to the MTV Movie Awards is even better (that's right, even better). Receiving an invitation to both? Why, you've just hit your zenith as an actor. You've covered all bases. The old white people at the Academy think you're important, and the MTV generation thinks you're rad. Yes, rad.
But which of the two prestigious events did the following thespians enjoy more, by our perception?

[From MTV News] On Sunday night (April 14), something inspired actress Aubrey Plaza to storm the stage while Will Ferrell was accepting his Comedic Genius Golden Popcorn at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
While the "Anchorman" star was making the A-listers in the room LOL with his speech, the "Parks and Recreation" star — with the name of her August film "The To Do List" scrolled across her chest — jumped onstage and tried to wrestle the statue out of his hand. While it seemed like it may have been a gag, MTV News can confirm that the moment was anything but planned. Get More »
Guys, we're not talking about a piece of fruit! (Though fruit is a nutritious snack that can often be described by the above adjectives.) Uh-uh, we're thinking more along the lines of abs than apples. Particularly, the abdominal regions of our 2013 MTV Movie AwardsBest Shirtless Performance nominees.

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.

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. So much for stage fighting, as Seth Rogen, one of the film's stars, revealed to MTV News' Josh Horowitz that the slap was real. And hard. Get More »
