    Revealed: The most thanked person in Oscar history (and it's more than God)

    One person in the movie business has been thanked in Oscar speeches more than any other, it’s been revealed. And that includes God. A study published by The Hollywood Reporter (via Vocativ) finds that from the 1,396 acceptance speeches that are archived by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, director Steven Spielberg is thanked 42 times. That compares to just 19 mentions of God. In a slightly unfortunate twist, considering recent events, Harvey Weinstein falls in second place, with 34 mentions. Then it’s James Cameron (28), George Lucas (23) and Peter Jackson (22).

    Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep Team For Pentagon Papers Drama ‘The Post’

    A timely film about the vital role of the press in keeping government honest is coming together with a powerhouse cast. Steven Spielberg just said yes to direct Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in The Post, the spec script by Liz Hannah bought last fall by Amy Pascal’s Pascal Pictures. The deals are being negotiated. The film is a drama about the Washington Post’s role in exposing the Pentagon Papers in 1971, and how the Post’s editor Ben Bradlee and publisher Kay Graham challenged the federal government over their right to publish them.

    Henry Thomas has had a steady, flourishing acting career in Hollywood for three-and-a-half decades. “You’re always remembered for something great, and a lot of people regard E.T. as a great film,” Thomas said in one of the all-time great understatements in Yahoo Movies history (watch above). “I figured out that I could think of my childhood dog that had died, and I could bring myself to tears.” Thomas said about his teary audition for Spielberg that went viral when unearthed several years ago.

    Yodel the News: Here's the First Clip from 'The BFG' (Exclusive)

    Like Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl had a true gift for manufacturing bizarro words. In his 1982 classic The BFG, the odd phraseology comes to us via the titular big guy, whose version of our vocabulary is close enough to understand, yet disparate enough to be sublimely wackadoo. The Big Friendly Giant’s words come alive in the new Steven Spielberg-directed movie version, with Oscar winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) playing the eponymous role.

    Universal May Be Planning Jaws and Back To The Future Reboots

    The seemingly endless cycle of remakes, reboots, reimaginings and any other number of ‘re’-prefixed verbs that have done the rounds in the film industry this past decade or so has invariably left many film fans asking - is nothing sacred anymore? Well, it seems we may have our answer, as word gets out that Universal may have their sights on rebooting two of the greatest Hollywood blockbusters of all time: ‘Jaws’ and ‘Back to the Future.’ - Spielberg Predicts End of Superhero Genre - Lead Actress Candidates For Spielberg’s Ready Player One - Jurassic World 3rd Biggest Movie Ever This news comes from a highly trustworthy source, The Hollywood Reporter, who mention Universal’s plans almost as an aside in their report on Steven Spielberg’s Dreamworks looking set to move house from Disney to Universal for distribution. The Spielberg connection is of course vital here. Not only did the legendary filmmaker get his big break making the original classic ‘Jaws’ for Universal back in 1975, he also produced ‘Back to the Future’ for the studio in 1985, as well as its two sequels.
