Quentin Tarantino feels sorry for Ben Affleck

Quentin Tarantino feels sorry for Ben Affleck.

Both directors missed out on Best Director Oscar nominations on Thursday (10.01.13) even though their movies 'Django Unchained' and 'Argo' picked up nods in other categories but Quentin thinks Ben's snub was worse than his.

Speaking at the 'Django Unchained' premiere at London's Empire, Leicester Square, he told BANG Showbiz: "It would have been nice and everything but at the end of the day, I actually feel more sorry for Ben Affleck. He really deserved it and I think we all thought he was going to get it, so I feel really sorry for him."

While, Quentin is excited that his own movie received five Academy Award nominations, he doesn't believe it will win the night's biggest award, Best Picture.

He said: "It feels very lovely, it's nice to be invited to the party. It's been a good week. Five Oscar nominations today, five BAFTA nominations yesterday. I don't think it will win Best Picture. But if it did, I will take it for sure."

While Christoph Waltz was unexcited about his own nomination for Best Supporting Actor, saying: "I have no idea if I will win. I'm not a bookmaker," the movie's female star Kerry Washington was more enthusiastic.

She said: "It's quite a ride, it's very exciting."

The premiere was also attended by the film's stars Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson while celebrities including Ashley Roberts, Hugo Taylor, James Arthur and Tyler James also walked the white carpet.

'Anything That Connects': A Conversation With Taylor Swift

Oct 31 2014 4:29pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Taylor Swift has had one amazing week. Her new album, released this Monday, is on track to eclipse one million sales by Tuesday. The last artist to go platinum in a week was Swift herself with her 2012 album, Red. So by the time she arrived at NPR's New York bureau today, she'd earned the right to a little goofiness — in this case, showing up in her Halloween costume, a fuzzy white bodysuit with wings that she described as a Pegasus-unicorn hybrid. The new album is titled 1989. Tha ...

Jennifer Lopez ‘felt abused in one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally’

Oct 30 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I actually forgot that Jennifer Lopez is still a judge on American Idol. Do people still watch that show? I’m being facetious – I know Idol still gets millions of viewers, although their viewership is not what it once was. Still, J.Lo is getting paid. A LOT. And I imagine Idol pays for her entourage of hair, makeup and style people, which is why we’re gifted with such interesting looks when she’s on the job. These pics are from Idol’s ...

Considering she got famous by getting completely naked, Emily Ratajkowski has remained pretty quiet on the topic of her love life. Fortunately, Emily has finally opened up about her romantic tastes in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan. We still don't know if Emily banged Ben Affleck on the Gone Girl set, but other than that it seems there's not much she's unwilling to discuss: "If I want to have sex, I'll do it," Emily told the wom ...
