Oscar doubles- trivia on all the two-timers

"Winslet could easily wins a second one in the right project/role.Think about how close she comes for Steve Jobs. The other one is Viola Davis in Lead.I think everyone in Hollywood would vote if she is nomed again."-Patrick

"Still mystified why Jodie and Jessica won two and then … television (Jessica) or nothing much else (Jodie)." -Faye

"The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint"Begins Filming

I've bitched about millionaires crowdfunding their projects already but I do want to say that of the three most egregious recent examples on Kickstarter,I'm most interested in Spike Lee's.I like that he's taken to social media with such enthusiasm,which negates some of the ickiness of crowdfunding by focusing on the its first syllable.

The film already has a promotional poster...

...and is about human addicted to blood because the vampire genre is so woefully underrepresented in current cinema.

Anyway,Lee reached his $1.25 million fundraising goal two days ago (a few days early) and by the time people were blogging about its success,the director had already started shooting and that kind of enthusiasm and commitment is as infectious as bloodlust in the movies!

Today heinstagrammedthis photo with the caption: "Shooting Opening Credit Sequence For The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint."

anyone know who these guys are?None are Spike's regular DP Barry Alexander Brown

Spike Lee makes great opening credit sequences --Do the Right Thingdid the right thing.And that's the truth,Ruth -- but this shot cracks me up because of the years I've spent searching forFirst & Last images.That series taught me that the biggest filmmaking cliche for opening shots is non-descript images of the sky or sea.

Still...we can probably trust Spike Lee & team to mix it up.He makes fine title sequences and that's the truth,Ruth.RememberDo The Right Thing?

I (will always) ♥ Rosie Perez.

I would bet some of Spike's NYU grad students are figuring heavily in the production of this movie.Many of them did during the Red Hook Summer shooting.

Rosie Perez is just the best of everything.I adore and miss her oodles.

I loooove Rosie!I recently watched White Men Can't Jump for the first time,and it's kind of amazing how after the 1,2,3 punch of White Men,Fearless,and It Could Happen to You,she became so underutilized by Hollywood :(
