One of the most-deserved awards given on Sunday night at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards was the Best Supporting Actor statue to Christoph Waltz, for his incredible performance as "Jew Hunter" Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino's World War II fairy tale, "Inglourious Basterds." In another year, Tarantino could have walked away from the evening with more than just the one Oscar for Waltz. "Basterds" is easily one of the filmmaker's best efforts, and that's thanks in no small part to Waltz.

For whatever could have been, the Tarantino's colleagues and friends were plenty excited on Oscar night. They went out to celebrate after the show, as you can see in today's Daily TwitPic. After the jump you can see Tarantino and Waltz joined by Omar Doom, the Basterd with the best real-life name ever, and Zoe Bell, who starred in "Death Proof" (Tarantino's half of "Grindhouse").

Please excuse the delay in running this week's Box Office Poll. I experienced some technical difficulties when working from home yesterday, so I put this post off for today. What a week we're in for movies. I don't know about y'all, but every wide release that opens is on my list as well as a fair few of the limited releases. So let's get to it.

Tough to say what the big one for the week is going to be. I think the top contender -- though not necessarily by a wide margin -- is "Zombieland," a comedy-horror flick starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin. As a zombie apocalypse sweeps across the world, the foursome set out on a cross-country trip to... well I'm not entirely sure. They kill lots of zombies though. Read More...

Chicks on roller skates. That's how I've chosen to sell "Whip It" to you male readers. Chicks. On. Roller skates. They're kickass ladies too, the lot of them. Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell, Ari Graynor, Alia Shawkat... like I said, kickass ladies. But then, that's what happens when you make a movie about an all-girl roller derby team.

I'm not entirely clear on the plot, but I do know a little something about the setup. Page stars as Bliss, a young Texan who rebels by joining a roller derby league after she grows tired of her mother (Marcia Guy Harden) pushing her to participate in beauty pageants. The script comes from Shauna Cross, adapted from her book "Derby Girl," and the movie is directed by Drew Barrymore, her feature debut. Hit the jump for the full poster. Read More...

Zoe BellAll of us here at MTV are excited for Ridley Scott's "Alien" prequel. The director hasn't had anything to do with the series since the 1979 original, which is a bonafide classic. To honor Scott and his lasting contribution to badass women in film, we've paired up the lovely duo of MTV contributor Jenni Miller and producer Sohyung Kang to produce a magical list of five leading ladies who could rock Ripley.

Although there aren't any hard and fast deets out there concerning Ridley Scott's prequel to "Alien," I've got my fingers crossed for a female badass to rival Sigourney Weaver's iconic Ripley. Since Weaver has stated publicly she doesn't think Ripley could be part of an "Alien" prequel, I have a few suggestions as to who could fulfill the role of cinema's favorite alien-killing, kitty-saving, space-feminist.

EveDrew Barrymore's directing her first film, "Whip It" -- based on the book "Derby Girl" -- and Eve's got "the bruises to prove it."

When MTV News caught up with the rapper/actress, she was recovering from the shoot in Detroit. "Let me tell you something," she said. "When you see this movie, we actually did those stunts."

Eve, along with Ellen Page and Barrymore herself, are roller derby players who go by names like Rosa Sparks (Eve), Malice in Wonderland (played by Kristen Wiig), Iron Maven (Juliette Lewis), and Bloody Holly (Zoe Bell). Page's character, Bliss Cavendar, runs away from home to join the team, despite the wishes of her mother (played by Marcia Gay Harden) that she enter beauty pageants instead. Read More...
