It's known to all that Taapsee Pannu is a powerhouse of talent. Over the years, the actress has proven her mettle with her shining performances in films like Pink, Badla, Thappad among others. Just like her reel avatar, Taapsee doesn't fail to impress us in real life too; whether it's giving back to trolls or speaking fearlessly on various issues.

Refresh for updates A new Oscar category for “popular” films doesn’t seem very popular in Hollywood, at least judging by first reactions . “The film business passed away today,” began Rob Lowe ’s tweet (read below for the whole thing). Lowe, of course, had his own Oscar low moment, during his musical number with Snow White in the critically lambasted Allan Carr produced telecast. “Finally,” wrote Andy Richter , “the Oscars will be giving a statue based on popularity so that those poor mountains of box office money won’t be lonely anymore.” The new award category, announced today , will honor outstanding achievement in popular film, with eligibility requirements and other key details yet to be announced. But Hollywood stars and pundits weren’t waiting. Here’s a sampling (we’ll update periodically): Better than a sequel, now that the Academy has added the section for ‘Overlooked Nineties Cult Movies With Squirting Pustules and Rasta Eyeballs’ it’s … [Read more...] about Most Popular Oscar May Not Be So Popular: Rob Lowe Tweets, “Film Business Passed Away Today”
Actor Ray Fisher is back on the attack, accusing Warner Bros. via Twitter of trying to ingratiate itself by hiring black writer Ta-Nehisi Coates to write a new version of the Superman franchise with J.J. Abrams. The implication by Fisher, who played “Cyborg” in the Justice League film, is that his complaints were ignored, and the new Coates alliance is a way to paper over Fisher’s outrage. “Do ya’ll remember that time Walter Hamada and @wbpictures tried to destroy a Black man’s credibility, and publicly delegitimize a very serious investigation, with lies in the press?” Fisher tweeted. “But hey, Black Superman…” Fisher has been at-odds with Warner Bros. since last summer, alleging he was mistreated by Joss Whedon on the set of Justice League. The running battle has included shots at Walter Hamada, the president of DC Films. According to WarnerMedia , Hamada heard Fisher out, Warner Bros. investigated, and then had the investigation taken over by Warner … [Read more...] about ‘Justice League’s’ Ray Fisher Tweets Out New Complaint, WarnerMedia Immediately Responds
