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."

Simone Holtznagel Is The New Face Of Guess

Oct 9 2014 2:49pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Australian models seem to do well for themselves. Unemployment rates among hot blond women with large hooters runs about zero. That takes into account the vast majority who need not look for a job in the first place. This chick is the new face of Guess. Which I think means jeans and jackets primarily for eventual resell in Moroccan bazaars. She joins a long list of Guess girls who have gone on t ...

Miles Teller on John Cusack: ‘I guess we look alike… but I don’t want his career’

Oct 8 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Miles Teller is doing the promotional rounds to support Whiplash, the little indie movie with major buzz at many different film festivals. JK Simmons is pretty much guaranteed a Best Support Actor Oscar nomination (if not the actual award) for the film, and I’m sure the film will become one of Teller’s calling cards for casting agents for years to come. Miles is still recovering (sort of) from his W Magazine interview, where he basically said that ...

Lindsay Lohan Photoshops Herself Into Charity Photo, Continues to be Ridiculous

Oct 6 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Earlier today, we reported that Lindsay Lohan is teaming up with Oprah for a second season of her reality show that no one watches.  Between that and the fact that Lindsay is actually getting occasional, semi-decent reviews for her performance in a London production of Speed the Plow (after nearly being laughed off the stage in her debut), it was really starting to look like she'd managed to turn her life around. Then she hit us with this ridiculousness: ...

Kate Winslet covers the new issue of Marie Claire UK. I wonder what she’s promoting? Let me look it up…eh, your guess is as good as mine. Maybe she’s promoting A Little Chaos, which doesn’t come out in America until next year. Maybe she’s promoting one of her modeling contracts. Maybe she’s just promoting herself and how she’s going to turn 40 years old (in October 2015). In any case, it’s a nice cover and a pretty nice shoot. Kate manage ...
