Leonardo DiCaprio honored by BAFTA nod

Jan 8 2014, 9:30am CST | by

Leonardo DiCaprio is "truly honored" to be nominated for a BAFTA award.

The 39-year-old hunk has landed a Best Actor nod for his portrayal of scandalous stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's riveting new film 'The Wolf of Wall Street', and he is ecstatic to be up for the award alongside Christian Bale ('American Hustle') and Tom Hanks ('Captain Phillips').

He said in a statement: "I am truly honoured to be nominated today by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. These nominations reflect the determination of an extraordinary cast, crew and of course the great Marty Scorsese."

The 2014 BAFTA nominations were announced in London today (08.01.14) and British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor - who is nominated for his harrowing portrayal of Solomon Northup in '12 Years a Slave' - is particularly excited to be considered for Best Actor alongside Hollywood heavyweights such as Leonardo, Christian and Tom.

He told BBC News: "It's been one of the greatest experiences I've had as an actor and as a person, so I can't tell you how excited I am and to be received this way by BAFTA is a really phenomenal moment."

Meanwhile, Dame Judi Dench celebrates a history-making 15th BAFTA nomination for Best Actress for her role in 'Philomena'.

The 79-year-old actress will battle 'Gravity' star Sandra Bullock and 'Blue Jasmine' leading lady Cate Blanchett for the award.

She enthused: "I'm very proud to be associated with this film and I thank BAFTA voters for the nomination. I'm honoured and thrilled to be in such fine company."

Setting Your Movie In Boston? Bettah Get The Accent Right

Aug 27 2014 2:26am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

The Hollywood movie about mobster Whitey Bulger has been filming in and around Boston for months, with a high profile list of actors. That means getting Johnny Depp and the others to sound like they're from Boston. And as locals certainly know — getting that Boston accent right can make or break the movie. There have been plenty of films about the Boston mob — Leonardo DiCaprio and Jack Nicholson worked with Hollywood dialect coach Tim Monich to nail ...

We could debate for hours who has the best ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Was it Chris Pratt drinking vodka? Was it Olivia Wilde using breast milk? Was it Charlie Sheen dumping cash on his head and challenging Ashton Kutcher and Chuck Lorre to donate $10,000 to the cause? Or was it Leonardo DiCaprio actually donating $100,000 to the cause? But we can no longer debate who is the oldest ALS Ice Bucket Challenge subject? Jack Reynolds! ...

These are photos of Rihanna in NYC on Tuesday. She’s wearing casual/workout gear and looks so ridiculously fantastic. I don’t know if RiRi is heading towards or away from the gym in these pics or is even thinking about working out at all. Whatever the case, this should be the look that Taylor Swift aims towards instead of the orchestrated, perfect gym exit pap shots. Rihanna popped into a feature in the September issue of ...
