Steve Carell may be nominated for an Oscar for his recent turn in 'Foxcatcher,' but the now-lauded actor has never forgotten the pain of a bad review. More specifically, he's never forgotten the pain of a single bad review, one that compared his performance to standing in a morgue full of dead bodies, eventually determining that Carell's work was somehow worse than said dead bodies.

Yep, it’s that time of the year again. The 2015 Oscar nominations are here and it’s time for everyone to get outraged and cynical over which movies get the opportunity to take home statuettes of naked golden dudes. Sure, we always tell ourselves that the Academy Awards don’t really matter and that a film’s legacy will live or die for reasons beyond trophies, but we always end up getting angry about these things anyway. However, this year’s biggest snubs seems more egregious than usual and require slightly more yelling and stamping of feet.

‘Foxcatcher’ Subject Mark Schultz Apologizes For the “Harshness” of His Comments, But Not the Comments Themselves

Bennett Miller’s ‘Foxcatcher’ portrays Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz as a brooding, nearly-mute mountain of frustration and rage. Based on the real Schultz’s last couple of days on social media, I’m going to say they got the anger part right. The...

‘Foxcatcher’ Wrestler Mark Schultz is Pretty Angry at Director Bennett Miller

When a film boasts that it’s “based on a true story,” that doesn’t mean “here is an exact chronological replication of events that 100% happened exactly the way they are presented here.” Instead, what it usually means is that the filmmaker has taken certain liberties, while relaying the story in a way that’s still honest about the things that really matter. ‘Foxcatcher’ is a film that takes some liberties, but it still gets to the heart of the story of Olympic gold medalist Mark Schultz. And while Schultz was initially supportive of the film, he’s now changed his tune, lashing out at director Bennett Miller for what he perceives is an unfair and inaccurate portrayal of his life.

If you’re going to play the Oscar prediction game, the Screen Actors Guild Awards are often one of the biggest indicators of who’s going to get nominated and who’s going to win. The actors represent the largest portion of the Academy’s voting body, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the nominations for the 21st Annual SAG Awards are hugely representative of what we will end up seeing when Oscar nominations are announced early next year. And that’s a shame: These are some of the safest and most predictable nominations in a long time.

The 50-Year-Old Virgin: How ‘Foxcatcher’ Warps Steve Carell’s Funny Persona Into Something Terrifying

Steve Carell’s ‘Foxcatcher’ role builds upon his solid dramatic work in 2007’s 'Dan in Real Life' and 2013’s 'The Way Way Back.' But more importantly, it’s a part that’s tailor-made for the comedian, given that it functions as something like the dark flip-side to his trademark funnyman persona.

Somehow, 'Foxcatcher' star Channing Tatum is the very first male guest to participate in a rousing round of Jimmy Fallon's 'Box of Lies' on 'The Tonight Show.' Fallon's results have been mixed -- the guy isn't very good at lying, especially when a giggly celebrity makes googley eyes at him in an attempt to throw him off his game -- but he has been getting better in recent weeks.

Even lauded talents star in terrible films, but sometimes—as is the case with these ten thespians—they happen to star in the worst of the bunch during the exact same calendar year that they turned in those Oscar-worthy works. Oops.
