The Destruction of all Creation

Aka the theme I use for when shit gets real. Doesn’t it sound grand? Composed by the awesome Michiko Naruke. You’ve likely heard her music through Super Smash Bros Brawl. Wild Arms is a propery of Media Vision Inc and I have no desire to infringe or profit and all that jazz. In fact I’d LOVE for them to make a 6th game already. Konami also needs to get cracking on Suikoden 6. There are plotlines to be finished dammit!

Billy Crystal: What To Expect On Oscar Night

In his ninth time hosting the Academy Awards, Crystal isn’t planning to ‘go after people’ like some recent awards-show emcees.

Although Billy Crystal wasn’t the Academy’s first pick to host the Oscars this year, the veteran emcee is a breath of familiar air to Hollywood’s main event.

This year marks Crystal’s ninth time hosting the show, and at age 63, he will be the oldest solo host of the event since Bob Hope in 1978 (Steve Martin was 64 when he co-hosted with Alec Baldwin in 2010). Coincidentally, the “When Harry Met Sally” star received a standing ovation from the Oscar audience last year when he appeared onstage briefly to honor Hope.

While some awards-show hosts of late have ventured into taboo and risky territory (see: Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais), Crystal has always carried out his duties with class and his own special brand of charisma, charm and wit.

“It’s important that the show be good, and I take it really seriously,” Crystal told Entertainment Weekly about the pressures and importance of the job. “That whole concept of ‘I want to really go after people’ — I don’t understand that. Is it a roast or is it an awards show? Do you dislike these people? I have a different bar. If there’s a good target and they deserve it, you can kid them in the right way. But it’s not the place to go out there and hammer people, because who am I? There’s many times we’ve kicked out jokes because they were too personal.”

It is very clear that Crystal will not be going for the jugular, which is more than fine by us, since the Oscars have a decidedly more serious and regal tone. This year’s ceremony will be helmed by a man who respects the industry and appreciates the pomp and circumstance of it all. And while we likely won’t witness any gasp-worthy jokes or quips, we can expect to feel warm and welcome via another one of Crystal’s lively movie montages at the start of the show, along with a few lighthearted tongue-in-cheek remarks that make us all feel like we’re in on the joke and invited to the party.

Flo Rida Brings A Good Feeling To NBA All-Star Weekend

The rapper performed his record “Good Feeling” during the Saturday activities for night two of All-Star weekend.

Orlando, Florida– When it comes to music Flo Rida is a definite all-star, but before he made it big on the radio the Miami rapper had some pretty big hoop dreams. He didn’t get to shoot the rock this weekend but Flo set the Amway Arena on fire on Saturday night when he performed his hit single “Good Feeling” moments before the NBA kicked off their annual All-Star Slam Dunk Contest.

“Early on with my boys, we played basketball and loved it so much and one day dreamed of playing basketball,” Flo told MTV News immediately after his performance. “So for me to go out there in an environment where I may not be an NBA player, but I’m definitely looked at as a celebrity as well, it’s just a blessing and I get chills just thinking about it.”

Flo performed his Etta James-sampling “Good Feeling” flanked by a number of energetic dancers. It was a lively showing and for the rapper an unforgettable on as well. “I definitely enjoyed myself out there, you seen me jump around all over the stage,” he said.

Performing during the live television broadcast was a thrill for Flo and so was watching the Slam Dunk Contest, which NBA baller Jeremy Evans won thanks to a move where he dunked two different basketballs in one jump. Flo Rida, an accomplished hit-maker who usually is out touring is also looking forward to spending time with his homeys during the star-studded weekend. “Besides that just hanging out with a bunch of my friends who I normally wouldn’t see around this time because I’m doing gigs,” he said when asked about his weekend highlights.

Flo just narrowly missed his pal Rick Ross last night at the Sheltair Executive Airport Hanger in Orlando. Rozay threw an all-star bash and partied alongside Meek Mill, DJ Holiday and Maybach crew members Dre Films and Spiff TV. Ross and company left, just as Flo was coming in the club. No biggie though, the “Good Feeling” rapper kept the party going into early Sunday morning with R&B singer Pleasure P.

What did you think of Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling” performance during the NBA’s All-Star Saturday festivities? Tell us in the comments!

Oscars 2012: How ‘The Artist’ Got To The Academy Awards

Buzz for the Oscar favorite began back at the 2011 Cannes film festival, and it’s been raking in award nominations ever since.

In a day and age where it seems as if everything and everyone in Hollywood is consumed by the latest and greatest cutting-edge technology, the fact that a black-and-white silent film set in the late 1920s/ early 1930s is dominating the Oscar conversation at the moment is surprising, to say the least.

“The Artist” is a legitimate silent film — there is no dialogue! — that revolves around the relationship between George Valentin (Best Actor nominee Jean Dujardin), a matinee idol in Hollywood before the dawn of talkies, and aspiring actress Peppy Miller (Best Supporting Actress nominee Bérénice Bejo). Its tone is nostalgic, sweet, romantic and fun, and the film has become a formidable force to be reckoned with on the road to Oscar gold.

Buzz for “The Artist” began back in May 2011 at the Cannes film festival, where the film premiered and Dujardin took home the Best Actor award. From then on, the well-received crowd-pleaser went on to wow critics and audiences alike on the festival circuit, including the Toronto International Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Once awards season kicked into high gear, the film started raking in multiple nominations and dominating a variety of best-of lists compiled by the major critics’ groups. So far, the French independent film has picked up four Critics’ Choice Awards, top prize at the Directors Guild Awards and Producers Guild Awards, three Golden Globes, the Best Actor SAG award for Dujardin, seven BAFTAs (the U.K.’s Oscar equivalent), and on Friday, six César Awards (the French equivalent of the Oscars). Not to mention the film’s five Independent Spirit Awards nominations and 10 Academy Awards nominations, where it is poised to take home most, if not all, of the evening’s major awards.

Oscar Winners: 20 Years Of Best Picture Box-Office Rankings

We take a look at what taking home Sunday’s big prize could do for this year’s Best Picture winner.
By MTV News staff

If the 2012 Oscars unfold as expected Sunday night, “The Artist” will walk away with a Best Picture win at the close of the ceremony. With that triumph, the silent, black-and-white film will become the second lowest-growing Best Picture winner in modern history. A populist fave, this movie is not.

And that’s often the case. While box-office record-breaker “Titanic” took home the Academy’s top honor in 1998, the Best Picture ranks are littered with ho-hum performers. Some, like “Schindler’s List” and “Million Dollar Baby,” received huge bumps from their wins. “The Silence of the Lambs,” which hit theaters in February 1991, received no bump at all, as it was already out of theaters. Yet others received small re-releases and added a few million to their totals.

To put the likely “Artist” win in historical context, MTV News took a look back at the past 20 years of Best Picture winners, ranking them from lowest to highest grossing (all figures come from Box Office Mojo and are not adjusted for inflation or ticket price).

Oscars 2012 Predictions: Best Picture

While we appreciated the risk-taking ‘Tree of Life,’ safe bet is ‘The Artist.’
By Kevin P. Sullivan

Heading into Oscar night, a collection of safe nominations and clear favorites has led to a distinct lack of drama. For the past few months, no other film has led the awards conversation quite like “The Artist.” An unlikely favorite, yes, but Michel Hazanavicius’ ode to the silent-film era moved to the front sometime before the Golden Globes and stayed there.

In the days leading up to the ceremony, the biggest questions aren’t who will win, but whether there will be any major surprises at all. Most Oscar analysts have locked their picks in by now, and the apparent answer is a resounding “probably not.”

Is “The Artist” unstoppable? Who would we like to see win? Here are our picks for Best Picture:

Who Will Win: “The Artist.” After stealing the early lead as favorite from “The Descendants,” nothing has stood in the way of “The Artist.” Even the most British movie of all time, “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” couldn’t beat the silent film at its own awards show, the BAFTAs. Oscar gold for Hazanavicius’ feel-good love letter to cinema is essentially a foregone conclusion at this juncture. If you’re looking for an Oscar-night surprise, look elsewhere.

Who Should Win: “The Tree of Life.” Terrence Malick’s all-encompassing look at life on this little blue ball is not only the most ambitious film of the nine nominees, but the only one that took any risks at all. Yes, “The Artist” goes without sound for most of its runtime, but the silence rarely goes any deeper than gimmick and relies on an already-established style of filmmaking. Malick, instead, went in an entirely different direction and made a movie on his terms, using his own unique sensibilities. Complaints about pretension are valid and should be acknowledged, but when the rest of the field plays out like safe bets, you have to respect that Malick is swinging for the fences.
