With the 88th Academy Awards set to take place this weekend (airing February 28 on ABC at 7e/4p), the biggest night for movies once again finds itself ripe for parody. That's where RIPT Apparel comes in, and their 3rd Annual RIPTcademy Awards is already running at full steam. This year, RIPT is offering parody movie posters presented in a "What If?" style. What if DEADPOOL were up for Best Picture? How about MAD MAX? What if 1999's classic film, OFFICE SPACE, had been a contender? In my mind, it should've been, and still could be... if only it had a proper Awards Season poster like the one that Nathan Davis created for RIPT...

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS recently received five nominations for the 88th Academy Awards (airing live February 28 on ABC), and of them is rightfully in the category of visual FX. While the focus has been on the "real sets" and "practical effects" of the film, audiences might be surprised at just how much CGI was actually used... the key being that good CGI is undetectable. From large-scale set pieces that would've been impossible to build (crashed Star Destroyers on Jakku), to simple digital set extensions (the TIE Fighter bay - which would've been Matte Paintings in the old days), all the way to complex, fully-realized characters like Maz Kanata, the work was impressive. Now, a newly-released VFX breakdown released by I.A. Magazine reveals just how in-depth the work truly was. Take a look...

"It's just the funniest thing. I think people think when you do movies this, they just throw a bunch of action figures your way," explains actor Daniel Henney with a smile. Casually chatting at the W Hotel in Los Angeles, Henney is with fellow actor Ryan Potter doing press for this week's in-home release of the Academy Award-winning BIG HERO 6 on Blu-ray and DVD. Funny enough, we're talking about action figures... while I sit with a Funko Pop! Vinyl Baymax peeking out of my North Face Surge Backpack - though neither Henney, nor Potter seems to notice as the voice of BH6's Tadashi continues his tale...

If you're like me, you probably really dug those full-size Oscar statues made of LEGO bricks that popped up during last night's performance of "Everything is Awesome" by Tegan and Sara with The Lonely Island at last night's 87th Academy Awards. Curious how they were made? Each of the 20 LEGO Oscars contains about 500 pieces and were designed and built by New York-based artist Nathan Sawaya. Check out one of them being built in the video below... but only if you have four-seconds to spare!

Walt Disney Animation StudiosWhen I first heard that Walt Disney Animation Studios' BIG HERO 6 would be preceded by a short film called FEAST, I flashed-back to my horror days and John Gulager's 2005 PROJECT GREENLIGHT creature feature of the same name. Aside from the title, the two have absolutely nothing in common, yet I couldn't get the monster flick out of my head... until I saw Winston, the adorable little terrier at the heart of Patrick Osborne's now-Academy Award-nominated short film about the love of a man as shown through the meals of a dog. So how did FEAST begin?
