Chris Rock can be crossed of the list of potential 2019 Academy Awards hosts.
The comedian denied any interest in the now-dreaded Oscar hosting gig on Monday night at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards dinner in Manhattan.
“If it was five years ago, I could say something really offensive and funny right now, but I can’t do that anymore, so…heyyyy!” Rock cracked, as he took the platform at the NYFCC Awards where he was on hand to present director Bo Burnham the award for best first film for “Eighth Grade.”
Proceeding to do some extemporaneous standup of sorts, Rock looked into the audience at Steve Martin — who was at the award show to introduce the best supporting actor award to Richard E. Grant for “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” — and raised the extremely topical subject of hosting the Oscars.
“Steve Martin is here. You should host the Oscars. You’re the best,” Rock said. “Steve Martin should host the Oscars! Because I’m not doing it, goddammit! You’re not getting me.”
Rock’s comments come amidst the continuously creating Kevin Hart saga, as the Academy’s search for an Oscars host continues.
Rock has hosted the Oscars twice — first in 2005 and, most recently, in 2016.
Rock was one of numerous huge names at the Monday night dinner, held every year by the NYFCC. Martin Scorsese presented “First Reformed” director Paul Schrader with the best screenplay grant; Gayle King presented Regina King, who won best supporting actress for “If Beale Street Could Talk,” fresh off of her Golden Globe win on Sunday night; Andrew Rannells introduced “Support the Girls” star Regina Hall with the lead actress award; and Naomi Watts conveyed Alfonso Cuarón best cinematography, one of three awards “Roma” succeeded at the occasion, including best film.
Raha, the daughter of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, receives the cutest personalised quilt; see here
After welcoming a baby girl, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are embracing a new stage in their lives. While well wishes for the couple and their newborn daughter have been flooding in, their designer friend Anaita Shroff Adajania recently gave them a sweet gift.
Friday night, Alia posted a photo of some unique, handcrafted blankets to her Instagram stories. ‘Alia & Ranbir’ was written on one of those quilts, and ‘Raha’ was inscribed on the other. On blankets, there were also carvings of adorable creatures and infinity symbols. Alia thanked @anaitashroffadajania and @purkalstreeshakti for sharing the photo.
Later, Alia Bhatt disclosed the name of her little girl in a different post and explained why they decided to preserve the name “Raha”. “The name Raha (selected by her amazing and wise Dadi) has so many lovely implications… Raha, in its purest form means divine path in Swahili she is Joy, In Sanskrit, Raha is a clan, In Bangla – rest, comfort, relief, in Arabic peace, it also means happiness, freedom & bliss. And true to her name, we felt everything from the first second we held her, she wrote.
Regarding her professional career, Alia most recently appeared in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, which also featured Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna in significant parts. With the upcoming film Heart of Stone, Alia will make her Hollywood debut alongside Gal Gadot, Jamie Dornan, Matthias Schweighofer, and Sophie Okonedo. Additionally, she is developing Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani with Ranveer Singh for Karan Johar. In addition to these, she will appear on film in Jee Le Zaara alongside Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif.
Movie Promo for Cirkus: Laugh Riot
The Cirkus trailer has arrived, and it was well worth the wait. In the movie, Ranveer Singh plays two roles.
Ranveer Singh is first introduced in the teaser as an electric man in a circus. Ranveer, on the other hand, wonders why he feels this way and embarks on an investigation with his close buddy Varun Sharma.
The story takes place in a lively, boisterous, and colourful colony full with cartoonish characters. As Ranveer and Varun quickly realise that they have doppelgangers in the town, confusion quickly develops.
Add Johnny Lever and other actors’ hilarious one-liners and a surprise cameo appearance by Deepika Padukone ( presumably in an electrifying dance number) to the mix and that is the Cirkus trailer for you.
Coproducing the movie with Reliance Entertainment, Bhushan Kumar, and Rohit Shetty.
Kartik Aaryan brings his A-game to this terrifying thriller in the movie Freddy
Freddy review: The Kartik Aaryan and Alaya F-starring movie doesn’t seem stretched out or veers off course at two hours and thirteen minutes. The second half of the tale becomes a little predictable, but the movie still maintains its momentum.
I suppose that’s why Kartik Aaryan’s most recent film, Freddy, which will give you the chills, succeeds because it’s dark, intense, toxic, and intensely toxic. The movie masterfully captures the complexity and eccentricities of Kartik’s character by portraying him in a never-before-seen avatar. Shashanka Ghosh’s suspenseful thriller Freddy will make you feel terrified, scared, and occasionally just creepy.
Without batting an eyelash, Dr. Freddy Ginwala (Kartik Aaryan), a 28-year-old introvert, recluse, and loner dentist, captivates you with his story of searching for his “soulmate” for five years on the matrimony website Meri Shaadi.com. After failing to locate a good match and being humiliated by a few prank calls, Freddy develops feelings for a married woman named Kainaaz Irani (Alaya F), who is trapped in a violent marriage.
When she needs to have a tooth extracted, she visits his dental office. After that, a series of things happen that bring the two of them together and cause them to fall in love. But this love story is about more than just the happy occasions, private encounters, and affection the characters have for one another.
The great twist at the halfway point and the climax are without a doubt the highlights of the movie and leave an impression on you. Freddy is undoubtedly a spine-chilling film to watch, with characters that are as complex as its plot. Currently, you may watch the movie on Disney+ Hotstar.
