Some of us just yawned and obsessed over the ticking of the clock during our far-too-long commencement speeches. Whatever maniac decided that so-and-so's wife's something or other who didn’t even graduate is equipped to send students off with a 30-minute diatribe on themselves is sorely mistaken. Just dole out the degrees already and call a day a day, right, kids? Unless ...
You know, every so often schools are able to wrangle in someone actually interesting to deliver a few notes of wisdom — some more often than others (cough Harvard cough). Even better, once in a while they're our very shiniest movie stars who make lots of funnies and deliver all the feels and suddenly the speeches don't seem so bad. Get More »
This Sunday, moms across the world'll be celebrating their own momness (or is it momitude?) in varying degrees and fashions. Some will receive flowers; others will demand that those whiny, slothy teenage miscreants do their own ruddy laundry for crying out loud ... or something like that. Get More »
David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" was a B.F.D. during this year's awards season, not just because it made Jennifer Lawrence a giant star — with meme fare to prove it — but also because it drew out all the feels.
With the eight-time Oscar-nominated flick poised to hit DVD next week, MTV now presents this exclusive glimpse at the film's alternate ending. In the new scene, the off-kilter little family unit's leader, Robert De Niro's obsessive Pat Sr., is having an outright conniption over the very presence of a Vikings shirt in his Eagles-only abode.

Oscar might be the word of the day, but for some folks, their own names were what rung loudest and proudest during this morning's 2013 Academy Award nominations read-out. Sure, some of them were just as baffled by some of the snubs as the vociferous folks of the Twitterverse, but they couldn't complain too much because, hey, they just got a chance at the most elite prize in the biz.
So, in the day's spirit of actors and such talking about actors and such, we've gathered here the nominees' various reactions to this year's nods. You can probably read between the lines on a few of these.
Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook": "I'm so honored and grateful for this nomination and to be in the company of such talented actresses. Having the fortunate opportunity to work with David O. Russell was an extraordinary gift and I am so thrilled for my fellow cast members Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver who are all nothing short of amazing. This was a labor of love that we all poured our hearts into and could not be more thankful to The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein for their unyielding support of the film" (ET Online).

When does a boxing movie become more than a boxing movie? When you add two Hollywood legends to your cast.
More than a decade after starring together in James Mangold's "Copland," tough-guy icons Sylvester Stallone (of "Rocky" fame) and Robert DeNiro (Jake La Motta in "Raging Bull") may team up again, this time in Tim Kelleher’s "Grudge Match." Get More »
