Oscar Nominee Snubs and Surprises: Max Max: Fury Road Leaves Them In The Dust

Tom Hardy

“Mad Max: Fury Road” was showered with honors by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, picking up Oscar nominations for best picture and best director.

There will be sex best picture nominees to join Max: “Bridge of Spies”, “The Revenant”, “Spotlight,” “The Big Short,” “The Martian,” “Brooklyn” and “Room.” Notably not among them: “Straight Outta Compton” and “Carol,” both of which were pegged to make the cut by awards handicappers.

The Revenant,” directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, drew 12 nominations in total — the most of any film — with Leonardo DiCaprio honored for his wounded frontiersman and Tom Hardy for his villainous supporting role.

With 10 nominations, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” was the second most-honored film, although most of its support came from technical areas, like film editing, costume design and makeup and hairstyling. Behind “Fury Road” came “The Martian,” with seven nominations – although its director, Ridley Scott, was prominently snubbed – and “Spotlight,” with six, including nods for its director, Tom McCarthy, and two of its supporting actors, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams.

The acting fields were filled with familiar faces. As expected, Cate Blanchett came away with her sixth best actress nomination for “Carol.” Jennifer Lawrence, now a four-time nominee, this time for “Joy,” joined Ms. Blanchett in the category. Also selected were Brie Larson from “Room,” Charlotte Rampling from “45 Years” and Saoirse Ronan from “Brooklyn.”

DiCaprio, picking up his fifth acting nomination, will be competing against the reigning best actor winner, Eddie Redmayne, who picked up a nod for “The Danish Girl.” Voters also backed Matt Damon (“The Martian”), Bryan Cranston (“Trumbo”) and Michael Fassbender (“Steve Jobs”). Surprisingly Tom Hardy and his pouty lips was not nominated for MMFR.

Other SNUBS this year include Johnny Depp for his portrayal of Whitey Bulger in “Black Mass”.  Charlize Theron for her one armed ass-kicking convoy leader in MMFR, and Harrison Ford whos last turn as Han Solo will go awardless.

WATCH: The EXCLUSIVE Trailer For “London Road” The UK Serial Killer Musical Starring Tom Hardy – Video

Tom Hardy in London Road

 

London Road, is an adaptation of the award-winning National Theatre production about the arrest of Steve Wright, an Ipswich man who was convicted of murdering five sex workers in 2008. Rufus Norris’s film uses the dialogue from the real townsfolk who were interviewed by author Alecky Blythe as they came to terms with the fact that a serial killer had been living in their community.  The movie  is written in verbatim style, meaning the spoken text is reproduced by the performers exactly as recorded in interviews, in this case conducted by Blythe with the residents of London Road and some of the women who worked as prostitutes there, as well as members of the media who gathered in the area to report the news. The lyrics in the musical segments are similarly derived from the interviews as recorded, with the meter, pitch and rhythm of the music following the patterns of the original recorded speech as closely as possible.

Produced by the National Theatre, BBC Films and Cuba Pictures, the movie features Tom Hardy and Olivia Colman in roles of Mark, a taxi driver and Julie, the organizer of Ipswich´s Neighborhood Watch.

 

#SDCC14 – FIRST LOOK: Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer Starring Tom Hardy – Video

Mad Max

 

The Comic Con trailer for the Mad Max reboot titled Mad Max: Fury Road has been released starring the ever humpy Tom Hardy.

Synopsis: 

The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

‘Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.

‘And… Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.’

Who needs story.  I’ll go just to see Tom Hardy take his shirt off.

WOOF!

Actor Tom Hardy In Talks To Play Gay Rugby Icon Gareth Thomas After Mickey Rourke Bails

Actor Mickey Rourke has dropped out of starring in the movie he’s developing about gay Welsh rugby icon Gareth Thomas because he says he’s too old for the training

The physical thing is harder than I thought. I’m just trying to get fit enough to do it.”  Said the 59 year old Rourke

The UK Sun is reporting that Tom Hardy (the man with the lips to die for) is now in talks to replace Rourke and play Thomas. The movie will feature Gareth’s personal struggle when he came out as gay in 2009.

Gareth said: “I was talking to Mickey yesterday and basically we’re now talking to other big-name actors who could play the part instead. We had talked about using computer-generated special effects with Mickey but we don’t think that will be as realistic, so it’s time to find someone new.”

He revealed Batman star Tom Hardy (above left) is now in talks for the part that will feature Gareth’s personal struggle when he came out as gay in 2009.

Hardy replacing Rourke?  THANK GOD!

Not only will the film be entertaining now but the locker room scenes will be a HUGE BONUS!

 

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (TRAILER)

I cannot wait for this movie to open. Not only does it star some phenomenal acting talents in the Gary Oldman, John Hurt and Colin Firth to name just a few. It also stars the hunky and talented Tom Hardy as Ricky Tarr. For those who aren’t familiar with ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ it is based on a 1974 spy novel by John Le Carré. ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ was first adapted for television in 1979 for the BBC featuring Sir Alec Guinness in the title role of George Smiley.

For those who’d like a bit more information, Keith Olbermann talked about this film in his #1 segment a few nights ago:

Actor Tom Hardy Wants To Make It Perfectly Clear: “I’ve Never Had A Cock Up My Arse”

A little over a year ago when Tom Hardy’s pouty lips became a blip on every gay mans radar in America after the release of his 2010 movie “Inception.  An interview in the UK newspaper the Daily Mail got tongues wagging and crotches stirring when Hardy “kinda”  admitted he’s had sexual relations with men:

 But asked if he’d ever had any sexual relations with other men, the broody actor said: ‘As a boy? Of course I have. I’m an actor for fuck’s sake. ‘I’ve played with everything and everyone. I love the form and the physicality, but now that I’m in my thirties, it doesn’t do it for me. I’m done experimenting but there’s plenty of stuff in a relationship with another man, especially gay men, that I need in my life. A lot of gay men get my thing for shoes. I have definite feminine qualities and a lot of gay men are incredibly masculine.'” 

Now fast forward one year and Hardy who is now more well known and  and who will starring as the villainous Bane along side Christian Bale in whats sure to be a mega-blockbuster,  Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.  Now wants everyone to know that he’s doesn’t “take it up the arse”

From an interview in UK Marie Claire:

. ‘I don’t regret anything I’ve ever said It’s just a shame things are misconstrued and I don’t get the opportunity to explain.’ Not even the time he said he’d enjoyed relationships with men in his twenties?

‘I have never put my p-nis in a man,’ is Hardy’s characteristically direct response. ‘Ive never had a cock in my arse, and I have no fucking desire for it. If that’s what you like, cool. But it doesn’t do it for me.’ He’s irritated his words were taken out of context but concedes, ‘one thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about’.

I don;t really understand how “‘As a boy? Of course I have.(sexual relations with other men) I’m an actor for fuck’s sake. ‘I’ve played with everything and everyone. I love the form and the physicality” can be misconstrued.  Is this Hardy If he is backpedaling so that he is cast as alpha-male action star or is he just telling us he doesn’t bottom?.

If thats the case, okay Tom,  no anal sex, we got it.  And thats fine bro because those lips were made for kisses and  BJ’s anyway and I am sure we can all live with that.
