Three more videos have been added to the video archive. There’s a behind-the-scenes look at Jimmy Kimmel’s Academy Awards Special, featuring interviews with Meryl, Tom Hanks, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman and many more. Then, there are two videos from the “August: Osage County” promotion in Paris, including the film’s premiere and the full press conference. Many thanks to Tena for the heads-up on the Kimmel clip. Enjoy watching.
Here’s the final update on last Sunday’s Academy Awards with lots of additional pictures from the show being added. Many thanks to Lindsey for her contribution and to Joan for the screencaptures. It looks like Meryl didn’t do any interviews at the red carpet, at least I couldn’t find any (if you found some, let me know). But there’s enough to look at anyway. A video clip, featuring all essential Meryl have been added, including her “dance segement” with Pharrell Williams, the epic selfie that broke Twitter, Ellen’s pizza delivery, and, of course, the Best Actress segment. You can watch the video by clicking above. And to revive all pictures from the show, have a look at the full list below. Enjoy.

Britain’s House of Commons will open its doors to a commercial film crew for the first time next month in a bid to raise cash, welcoming Meryl Streep for a movie about the suffragettes, officials said. Streep is appearing alongside Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter in the British film “Suffragette”, the fictional tale of one woman’s fight for the right to vote. Parliamentary authorities decided last year to try to boost their coffers by renting out parts of the Palace of Westminster when lawmakers are not sitting, although crews will not be allowed to film in the debating chamber. Alan Haselhurst, chairman of the Commons administration committee, said a film about the fight for women’s suffrage a century ago was a perfect way to start. “As a British film which clearly relates to parliament’s history and heritage, this is an ideal pilot for the House of Commons to identify the opportunities for location filming and income generation,” he said on Tuesday. Adrian Wootton, chief executive of the British Film Commission, commented: “Opening up such an iconic location as the House of Commons for filming is fantastic news.” Many thanks to Frank for the heads-up.
Last night on his post-Oscars show, Jimmy Kimmel premiered what fans have been looking for all awards season: parody movie trailers based on classic viral videos. Among them is “Bitman Begins”, “based” on “Charlie Bit My Finger, and starring Chris and Liam Hemsworth as well as Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks! Short but funny, especially Streep’s “subtle” dialogue. Don’t miss the other videos as well, “Ameowadeus“, featuring Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman and Ben Kingsley, “Sweet Brown: Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That“, featuring Queen Latifah and Barkhad Abdi, and “David After Dentist Double Rainbow Oh My God!“, featuring Joseph Gordn-Levitt and Samuel L. Jackson. “Bitman Begins” can be found in the video archive, alongside captures and production stills in the image library.
Lots of additional pictures from yesterday’s Academy Awards have been added to the image library. This has been a fun ceremony, giving us Meryl dancing with Pharrell Williams, breaking Twitter records and eating pizza while Brad Pitt plays waiter – not bad for an Oscar broadcast. Check out the pictures from the red carpet and the show, with clips coming next.
