Aubrey Plaza hosted the 2020 Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday and, of course, her opening was full of jokes that poked fun at not only attendees but bigger issues plaguing the world.Plaza started her hosting gig with a skit that showed her in the dressing room, having a meltdown before the start of the awards show. Judy Garland (also played by Plaza) suddenly appeared, giving her advice in typical Garland fashion.“Scorsese is doing films for Netflix, Sandler is doing dramas!” Plaza’s Garland said, poking fun at the state of independent film.Also Read: Independent Spirit Awards 2020: Willem Dafoe Wins Best Supporting MaleThen, after a brief make-out session with Garland, Plaza went on stage to sing a rendition of Garland’s “Get Happy,” before she called out individual attendees like Jennifer Lopez, Adam Sandler, Idina Menzel and Renée Zellweger.Later, Plaza and Michael Shannon parodied “The Lighthouse,” which starred Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson. In the skit, the duo played lighthouse keepers who just don’t get along, and when Plaza sees Shannon writing something in his log and asks him what he’s writing, Shannon tells her, “Nautical things.” She grabs the log and sees that he clearly didn’t like her opening monologue — and he especially didn’t like that she called out Shia LaBeouf and his career in her opening. Seagull and farting jokes were aplenty.See Plaza’s best jokes below.1\. Garland told Plaza before she went on stage: “Do something they’ll enjoy, not your spooky ‘Sabrina the Teenage B—-‘ thing!”2\. “What do we have to be happy about? Look at all the disasters we have to deal with: pollution, trash in the ocean, ‘Cats’ in theaters! Meow!”3\. “Some of you came from other neighborhoods in Los Angeles for this!”4\. “Willem Dafoe, I love you and I’m so glad that after years of looking like a 19th-century lighthouse keeper, you finally got to play one!”Also Read: Aubrey Plaza to Return as Host of 2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards5\. “The guy who runs Netflix is here, Ted Sarandos! Sorry, Ted, but I am going to scroll right past you and find more interesting people to talk about. No offense, but you started it!”6\. “Jennifer Lopez is here. You just performed at the Super Bowl last weekend. What did you do, Mary Kay Place? You lazy sack of s—! Just kidding, you’re a national treasure. Nicolas Cage, you are a national treasure, too! Sorry, I said that wrong — you were in ‘National Treasure 2.'”7. “I’m hosting the second most important show of the weekend. The Independent Spirit Awards are so much cooler than the Oscars: it’s the daytime when we’re at the beach, we recognize female directors — all two of them! I am so proud of how diverse this show is. JLo and I are super hot Puerto Ricans! I mention that because Puerto Rico is kind of like an independent film: beautiful, not enough people have seen it and its financing is always falling through.”8\. “Today isn’t about Scarlett Johansson being with men who don’t deserve her. It’s about independent film!”9\. “I won’t sing again. I might pole dance only to show JLo how it’s done.”10\. “Next, we celebrate the success of ‘Honeyland,’ by releasing 100,000 bees into the tent! NO!!!!”11\. “Our next presenter is Hollywood royalty and a legend in independent film — I wanna scream like an unhinged maniac but that’s more his thing — Nicolas Cage, everyone!”12\. “And here to present the Best Feature… ugh. It’s always weird to see your ex in public. The producer and star of ‘The Irishman,’ Robert De Niro!”Read original story Independent Spirit Awards 2020: Aubrey Plaza’s Best Jokes At TheWrap

After another incident puts Troy in a coma, Archer agrees to a bizarre plan that involves using experimental surgery to give him Troy’s body, face and voice, and then going to a max security prison to convince Troy’s partners to reveal the location of a bomb.But while Archer is in prison, Troy breaks out of his coma and forces the surgeons to give him Archer’s face, effectively leading the two men to switch places. Archer must now break out of prison and expose what Troy has done, as Troy takes over Archer’s personal and professional life.Released to strong reviews, “Face/Off” was a success at the box office with $245 million grossed worldwide, or approximately $391 million in 2019 dollars. David Permut, who produced the original film, will return for the reboot as an executive producer.In addition to “Face/Off,” Uziel is currently attached to two in-development Warner Bros. blockbusters: a film adaptation of DC’s “Supergirl” and the sequel to “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu.” He is repped by WME and Writ Large.

The legendary actor talks about his new movie Mom and Dad as well as a few classics from his film career.
Rather marvellously cultivating his 'everything I do is a meme' status, we find Nicolas Cage pictured here in Kazakhstan, sporting full traditional regalia.
The five biggest hits of 2001 included the first Harry Potter, ‘Shrek’ and ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ and ‘Rush Hour 2’ – with nary an A-lister between them (audiences didn’t go to see ‘Shrek’ because of the names in the voice cast and while Jackie Chan is a huge star in Asia he remained a comparatively niche name to Western viewers). Tom Cruise’s ‘Vanilla Sky’ barely scraped to $100m and new (cheaper) stars were beginning to emerge and stake their claim like Matt Damon, George Clooney, Vin Diesel and Reese Witherspoon.
The new Nicolas Cage thriller Army of One has earned plenty of attention for its bonkers-sounding premise: Cage plays an unemployed handyman who receives a message from God (in the form of Russell Brand) that it’s his duty to capture Osama Bin Laden.
