Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

Chris Pratt attended the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood, CA, last night where MTV’s Josh Horowitz spoke to the Guardians Of The Galaxy star on the Red Carpet about all those rumors about him being the next Indiana Jones. Last month, news broke that Disney was looking to reboot the Indiana Jones film franchise and wanted Pratt to take on the role as the titular adventurer. And just a few days ago, new reports surfaced that long-time Indiana Jones filmmaker Steven Spielberg is interested in directing Pratt in the reboot (Pratt is in his Jurassic World, coming to theaters this June).

So, what did Pratt have to say about all this Indiana Jones business? Well, unlike the other stars Horowitz grabbed a few minutes with on the Red Carpet, the actor didn’t shy away from the question.

Check out the short video interview here below.

Oscars Retrospective: Best Picture Losers That Should Have Won Academy Awards

jaws poster Oscars loser

If your favorite movie of 2014 leaves Oscar Sunday a loser, have no fear. History suggests that the Academy Award losers have just as good a chance to become all-time classics as the winners. Granted, sometimes, the Academy gives the little golden statue to the right film. No one is going to argue The Godfather (1972), Casablanca (1942), or Schindler’s List (1993). But seriously, in 20 years is ANYONE gonna remember the overrated message movie of Crash (2005) or even the more recent 21st century silent film, The Artist? I sincerely doubt it. In fact, on 2007’s American Film Institute’s 100 Greatest Films (10-year edition), 14 out the top 20 were NOT Best Picture winners, some not even nominated.

So here’s a brief list of some of the greatest Academy Award Best Picture losers of all time.

Weird Al Gets Whiplashed

Take my favorite musician/recording artist ever and add in my favorite movie of 2014 and you have a recipe for greatness. “Weird Al” Yankovic has teamed up with Oscar contender for Best Picture, Whiplash, to promote his upcoming world tour “Mandatory.” Whiplash is the story of a drum prodigy tested by his abusive jazz conductor college professor played by Oscar nominee J.K. Simmons. In Weird Al Gets Whiplashed, a video produced by College Humor, Weird Al stands in for Miles Teller’s character Andrew, while his patented accordion replaces the drums. The performer is excited for his upcoming world tour and is trying to get “perfect” with the help of Simmons’ Fletcher. While Simmons’s scenes from the film remain perfectly intact, this hilarious 4-plus minutes video has Weird Al voicing to Simmons what most viewers of the film wanted to yell at the screen.

You can check out Weird Al Gets Whiplashed as well as some of Weird Al’s other new videos here below.
