Watch Joaquin Phoenix Rescue A Cow And Her Calf From L.A. Slaughterhouse
Less than 48 hours after Joaquin Phoenix hoisted the first Oscar of his career the Joker star was cradling a newborn calf that he rescued from a Los Angles slaughterhouse.

A just-released video from Farm Sanctuary shows the somber 45-year-old star liberating both the calf and her mother from a Pico Rivera slaughterhouse while visiting the facility with his fiancee, Rooney Mara, and a delegation of the Los Angles Animal Save activist group.

The visit and the short film punctuated a triumphant awards season for Phoenix that saw him sweep all of Hollywood top trophies for his on-screen metamorphosis in the billion-dollar hit Joker. Phoenix used much of his microphone time along the way to promote the vegan lifestyle and to frame animal agriculture as an environmental plight.

The video, shot by Shaun Monson, shows the Walk the Line and Gladiator star escorting the cow and her calf to a facility used by Farm Sanctuary.

Greed Review: A Smart Satire of the Super-Rich

Greed Review: A Smart Satire of the Super-Rich
Steve Coogan stars in Michael Winterbottom’s exploration of corrosive capitalism, Greed.

“What’s that Greek word?” asks Sarah Solemani’s party planner during one of Greed’s many sharp, quick-fire conversation scenes - not ‘Taramasalata?’ (as per the first suggestion she receives), the word she’s looking for is ‘Hubris’ - meaning, essentially, the overblown pride that comes before a fall. It’s a theme that runs throughout this satire of the super-rich, and specifically a fictionalized version of British billionaire highstreet fashion tycoon Philip Green.

Gerard Butler to Star in Action Thriller ‘Remote Control’ for STXfilms

Is It Too Soon to Talk About Next Year’s Oscars?

Is It Too Soon to Talk About Next Year’s Oscars?
Hollywood may still be shaking off its awards-season hangover, but before it puts the tuxedos and gowns back in storage, Variety wants to take a look at some of the films that seem destined to dominate the next Oscars race.

It’s true that on paper many movies that now appear earmarked for awards greatness may collapse on the shoals of audience indifference or fall prey to a good old-fashioned critical savaging. Why, this time last year, “The Goldfinch,” an adaptation of Donna Tartt’s beloved best-seller with Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and Ansel Elgort, looked like a certified best picture contender. Those dreams deflated when audiences actually saw the movie or, more to the point, chose not to see the movie.

Still, sight unseen, there’s a crop of films that studio executives and awards consultants already have on their radar. In part, that’s because of the track

Michael Bloomberg And Donald Trump Trade Insults In Preview Of Potential 2020 Showdown

Michael Bloomberg And Donald Trump Trade Insults In Preview Of Potential 2020 Showdown
President Donald Trump on Thursday called Michael Bloomberg “a 5’4″ mass of dead energy” and a “loser.” Bloomberg shot back by telling Trump that their mutual acquaintances in New York “call you a carnival barking clown.”

Matching insult with an insult is hardly a strategy of taking the high ground, but for Bloomberg, it’s undoubtedly a strategy that he believes can only help him at this stage in the campaign.

As Bloomberg moves up in the polls, all of the attention from the president helps make his case that he is the one that Trump most fears in the general election. And by responding to Trump’s insults with his own, Bloomberg offers a preview of how he would respond.

What’s more, the Thursday morning back and forth between the two New Yorkers was bait for cable news segments. A CNN chyron read, “Do escalating Bloomberg attacks reveal Trump’s 2020 fear?

Joaquin Phoenix and his Oscar-worthy roles

On Sunday night Joaquin Phoenix topped off a flawless awards campaign, collecting the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in Joker, adding to the BAFTA, Golden Globe and Screen Actors’ Guild Award he’d already picked up earlier this year.

Joker was up for 11 Oscars

While his victory at the Academy Awards might have seen like a shoo-in, the actor’s previous form at the ceremony suggested otherwise; this was the fourth-time Phoenix had been nominated, without ever having walked away with a statuette.

In celebration of the DVD release of Joker, which is available to buy now, we’re looking back at the roles which earned Phoenix his previous nominations, looking at the actors to have beaten him out to the award in past years and seeing how Phoenix learned from the roles to set him up for his 2020 clean sweep.

Oscar Viewership Hits All-Time Low With 23.6 Million
It was a historic 92nd Academy Awards with a first Best Picture recipient not in the English language in Parasite adding an element of surprise to a largely predictable winners list. There was something historic in the ratings for the 2020 Oscars too — an historic low.

Last year, the Academy Awards bet on no traditional host, kicked off the night with an energetic performance by Queen and Adam Lambert, employed “not hosts” with Saturday Night Live pedigree to do an opening monologue, kept the show’s length under 3.5 hours and created a musical moment with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s performance of “Shallow.”

The result was the first ratings increase in five years, so the Oscars tried to replicate the formula Sunday: no traditional host, high-octane opening number by Janelle Monae. monologue by SNL alums Steve Martin and Chris Rock, and a surprise music

Joaquin Phoenix Wins His First Oscar for Joker
It's official: Joaquin Phoenix has finally won an Oscar. Phoenix took home the Best Actor prize at the Academy Awards for his work in Joker. This caps off a sweep of awards season for the actor. It also makes him the second actor to win an Oscar for portraying the iconic DC Comics villain, following Heath Ledger for his work in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight.

Joaquin Phoenix was the heavy favorite to take home the award heading into the evening, but the competition was stiff. Phoenix was competing against Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory), Adam Driver (Marriage Story) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes). Ultimately, it was Joker that came out on top as the 2020 Oscar winners were announced.

Joaquin Phoenix Thanks Oscar Crowd for ‘Second Chance’: ‘I’ve Been Selfish, I’ve Been Cruel’
Joaquin Phoenix accepted his best actor award for “Joker” at Sunday’s Academy Awards with a lengthy and impassioned speech that touched on racism, animal rights and his own ability to grow and change.

“I do not feel elevated above any of my fellow nominees or anyone in this room, because we share the same love, the love of film and this form of expression has given me the most extraordinary I don’t know what I’d be without it,” Phoenix said. “But I think the greatest gift that it has given me, and many of us in this room, is the opportunity to use our voice for the voiceless.”
