Game of Thrones

Winter is here! Winter is here! Thank the Seven, winter is here! At long last, "Game of Thrones" has returned for its second season, bringing us our first new trip to Westeros since last year's dragon-birthing finale "Fire and Blood." Tonight, we kick things off with "The North Remembers," an aptly titled episode filled with Stark vengeance, Lannister cruelty and Baratheon plotting. In short: it's everything you know and love about the HBO fantasy series, just with a lot less Ned Stark. (Rest in peace, Lord of Winterfell.)

Our live-blog of the season premiere starts right now, so join in and follow along while we watch winter and war sweep over Westeros!

9:58 PM: And that's a wrap! Hope you guys enjoyed returning to Westeros as much as I did. Check back in a few hours for the first of our new "Game of Thrones" weekly video recaps, and for now, let me know what you thought of the episode in the comments or on Twitter!



It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights! No, it's not the Muppet Show tonight, but the next best thing: it's Oscar night!

The 84th Annual Academy Awards are finally here to settle the biggest lingering movie questions of 2011 once and for all. Will "The Artist" dominate as many expect it to? Is there room for an upset from Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" or George Clooney's "Descendants"? How much mayhem will Sacha Baron Cohen Admiral General Aladeen cause during the big show? And please, for the love of all things holy, can we please get a stealth "Man or Muppet" performance?

Stick with MTV Movies Blog all night long for these answers and more as our LIVE coverage of the Oscars continues. Keep refreshing those browsers as we bring you the latest updates on the winners, losers and much more!

11:37 PM ... And that's that -- another Oscar ceremony down and in the books. Exciting at times, predictable more often than not. What did you guys think? Was this a good showing by the Academy? Did you enjoy Billy's long awaited return to the stage? Happy with the winners? Tell us everything you thought about this year's Oscars in the comments section or on Twitter!

11:35 PM ... Silence is acceptance. "The Artist" wins Best Picture. No one will remember this in five days.

11:32 PM ... We're in the end game. Best Picture. It's going to be "The Artist." I want "Hugo" or "Tree of Life," but that's not happening. It is what it is. (What it is is boring, by the way.)

Ricky Gervais

If you thought Ricky Gervais was inappropriate at the Golden Globes last year, just wait — the British comedian is back for another round of offending the Hollywood elite this year, and we've got a feeling he's looking to up the ante.

The Golden Globes are tonight, and it's not just the Gervais gags that we're tuning in for. We also want to see which movies are honored at one the film industry's biggest nights of the year, of course! Will "The Artist" continue its not-so-silent domination of the awards season circuit? With two nominations to his name, can Ryan Gosling walk away with a Globe this year? We'll find out the answers to those questions and more before the night's over, so tune into our Golden Globes live blog to share in on what will surely be one of the most exciting Hollywood events of 2012!

Sixty-four competitors and six rounds later, we're finally at the last leg of the Harry Potter World Cup, our month-long tournament set up to determine which character is truly the greatest in the entire "Harry Potter" story. And now, we're moments away from finding out who won in the battle between Severus Snape and Ron Weasley.

MTV News is LIVE at the red carpet premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" here in New York City, where we'll be bringing you a two-hour live-stream of our conversations with the various cast and crew members who've populated the Potter-verse over the last decade. You can send your questions along to @MTVNews using the hash-tag #AskPotter. Of course, it's not all about "Deathly Hallows," as we'll also be announcing the Harry Potter World Cup's grand champion. Polls will close at 5:00 PM EST, and we'll reveal the winner live from the carpet.

So tune into our live-stream right now, and click past the jump for our red carpet live blog!

Whether you're attending the MTV Movie Awards or just watching the big show at home, there's still one place you where you can't see all the action: backstage.

Thankfully, that's why we're here! The MTV News crew is in the thick of the Movie Awards madness, and we're bringing you backstage and behind the curtain with us. We'll be here all night long to give you all the inside scoop about what you're not seeing on television.

Who's hanging out with who? What's going on off stage? We've got all of those answers and more, so stay tuned right here all night long for continued behind-the-scenes updates throughout the show. It's MTV Movie Awards time, folks — and this is your exclusive peek backstage!



It's finally here, movie fans: the 83rd Annual Academy Awards have arrived!

After weeks and months of analysis and speculation, hopes and fears, nervousness and anticipation, the biggest night in Hollywood is here at last. Who will win Best Picture? Who are the best actors of the year? These questions and more will finally earn their answers in the coming hours, and we're here to keep you updated on all of them.

Stay here with MTV Movies Blog all night long for our continually updating LIVE coverage of Oscar night. Make sure to keep refreshing those browsers as we bring you the latest updates on the winners, losers and much more!

11:41 PM ... And that's a wrap, ladies and gentlemen! What did you think of this year's Oscars? Exciting? Predictable? Perhaps a bit of both? We want to know what you thought of the night in the comments section and on Twitter, so what are you waiting for? Give us that feedback, and have an excellent evening!

11:38 PM ... On the flip side, "The King's Speech" tied with "Inception" as the top award-getter of the night with four a piece. Even though "Inception" didn't snag the big awards, it still says something that a blockbuster action flick can lead the Academy Awards in such a decisive way. We're not far off from that big budget Best Picture winner, mark my words.

11:35 PM ... "The King's Speech" wins the Oscar for Best Picture. "The Social Network" was the early favorite at the beginning of awards season, but there was no stopping the Colin Firth-led feature once it really got rolling. Nicely done, sirs, even if our hearts belong to the Facebook flick.



The 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards delivered a serious déjà vu experience, with most of the evening's winners being repeats of the previous weekend's Golden Globes extravaganza. Sandra Bullock ("The Blind Side") and Jeff Bridges ("Crazy Heart"), for instance, triumphed at both ceremonies. This year's SAG Awards take place two weeks after the Globes. Will the results be the same?

That would mean a dominating performance from "The Social Network," which nabbed four Globes, including Best Motion Picture - Drama and Best Director. But "The King's Speech" is on the rise, locking up 12 Oscar nominations last week after Colin Firth won best dramatic actor at the Globes. And never count out, for that matter, "True Grit," which rebounded from a shutout in the Globe nominations to become a surprise box office hit ($148 million and counting) and then garner 10 Oscar nods. Oh, and today is Christian Bale's birthday, and the birthday boy could well walk away with supporting actor statue for "The Fighter."

All of which is to say: we have our suspicions and our theories, our personal favs and hoped-for dark horses, but there's no way to tell what's actually gonna go down until the show goes live. By now, the celebs like James Franco, Natalie Portman and Justin Timberlake have sashayed down the red carpet, done their best to avoid the rain, and entered the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles. The curtain rises in a matter of minutes. And MTV News is ready to rock with our SAG Awards live blog. Keep hitting refresh on your browser to find out the very latest news and analysis from the show.

We'll be watching the show and updating this blog in real time, so be sure to refresh the page every minute or two for a play-by-play of the night and some insightful (or at least entertaining) commentary. Check out our GOLDEN GLOBES LIVE BLOG below! Read More...
