My favourite film is Day of the Dead by George A Romero. The best zombie film in my opinion.
Not stirred and not shaken either! James Bond will be drinking beer - not his signature martini - in the next big screen 007 installment. Daniel Craig will be seen in the film knocking back a Heineken. Product placement!
Some facts on the Oscars.
Walt Disney is the most honored person in Oscar history: he received 59 nominations and 26 awards throughout his career (his luck didn’t rub off on Tom Hanks, though — his role as Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks" did not earn him any nominations this year).
Some say "12 Years A Slave" will sweep the Oscars this year, but this might be foiled by a technicality, as Lupita Nyong'o is nominated for a supporting role, not Best Actress. Traditionally, a "sweep" is defined by winning these five categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Screenplay (Adapted or Original). The last film to do this was "Silence Of The Lambs" in 1991.
Meryl Streep is often called the greatest living actress, and the people of the Academy agree: she’s the most-nominated performer in Academy Awards history, with 18 nominations. Sadly, she’s only actually won three times: in 1979, 1982 and 2011. She’s nominated this year for "August: Osage County."
But there’s someone you’ve never heard of who’s got Meryl beat: with 49 nominations, composer John Williams is the most nominated living person (this year’s nod is for the score of "The Book Thief").
The most nominated fictional character is Henry VIII.
There has only been one Oscar winner named Oscar: Oscar Hammerstein II, who won two for best song.
The record holder for most Oscars won in a single year is 11, and was set by "Ben-Hur" in 1959. It was matched in 1997 by Titanic, and again in 2003 by "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King."
If you had to pick, 1978’s "The Turning Point" and 1986’s "The Color Purple," are technically the Oscar's biggest losers. Both movies received 11 nominations each — but neither took home a single award. To many, that’s still a win.
The person who’s literally the biggest loser in Oscar history is sound recording engineer Kevin O’Connell — he’s been nominated 20 times since 1983, and hasn’t won once.
Only three animated movies have ever been nominated for Best Picture: “Beauty And The Beast,” “Toy Story 3” and “Up”.
In 1969, Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand tied for Best Actress — there have only been three other ties in Oscar history, twice in Best Documentary and once in Best Live Action Short Film.
Judi Dench scored her seventh acting nomination this year for Best Actress in "Philomena" — all of her nominations have come after she turned 63, a distinction no one else comes close to.
Martin Scorsese has directed 20 actors and actress to Oscar nominations.
