Delicious and entertaining
When it comes to performances in movies, it's usually the actors and actresses that are recognized rather than the inanimate objects that are featured in motion pictures. In order to rectify this oversight, we have decided to recognize the work of at least a few of those objects, beginning with the food seen in movies.

Which of this year's movies deserve the industry’s highest honor?
This has been an incredible year for movie lovers, especially fans of genre movies. There were fewer superheroes on the big screen, but they ruled the box office, nonetheless, with smartly written, ingeniously directed and just plain fun comic book adaptations coming in first, second, and fifth on the list of the highest-grossing movies of the year. Sci-fi fans were made to suffer through a couple of early duds, but had their patience rewarded with the return of some classic characters and one of the most influential directors to work in the genre after a thirty-year hiatus. Fantasy fans got to choose between whimsical and warrior Snow Whites, and the world's most popular vampire couple had a baby, not to mention that the greatest high fantasy franchise of all time returns to theaters this month after a decade slumbering in the Shire. (Horror fans got the short end of the
stake stick this year, with too many sequels and not enough original content.)
Women continued to assert themselves in 2012, with more female-driven comedies getting laughs for the kinds of jokes once reserved for men, and the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Director is almost a sure thing for another nomination. Independent studios also made a splash this year, turning out several engaging, moving, and downright brilliant dramas that are every bit as good as the big studio dramas with A-list directors.
Which movies were the best? Which ones deserve the honor of being nominated for the movie industry's top prize? That's up to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to decide, but we want to know what you think. Ignore genre and tell us which movies deserve to be nominated for Oscars, whether for Best Picture, Best Animated Feature or Best Documentary.

Crazy loves crazy.
Based on the 2008 novel by Matthew Quick, the first trailer for Silver Linings Playbook was released in June and was primarily interested in revealing the eccentric Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper), a former teacher who, after losing his marriage and spending time in a mental institution, moves in with his parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver). The second trailer is still interested in selling audiences on Cooper's Pat, who is an Ernest Hemingway novel-length away from another meltdown until he meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a neighbor who just lost her husband and might be looking for redemption just as much as Pat. all the latest trailers

It took director David O. Russell some time to figure out how he was going to follow-up his highly lauded 2010 biopic The Fighter, but after dropping out of his adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and then splitting from his video game adaptation Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Russell is finally back with The Silver Linings Playbook.
Based on the 2008 novel by Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook follows Bradley Cooper as a former teacher who moves back in with his parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver) after spending years in a mental institution. While trying to reconcile with his wife, he finds himself drawn to his eccentric neighbor (Jennifer Lawrence.

The last time Robert Duvall and Tom Cruise appeared on screen together was in 1990's Days of Thunder, but the two will reunite in Paramount Pictures' adaptation of One Shot, based on the novel by author Lee Child.
Cruise plays Jack Reacher, a former Military Police Officer-turned-drifter, who investigates the deaths of five individuals at the hands of a lone sniper. Variety reports that Duvall has a small but "significant" role in the movie, particularly to Reacher's story line.
Cruise was a surprising choice to play Reacher, whom Child has used in 15 different novels (One Shot is the ninth in the series). Described in the books as 6'5" and 250 pounds, let's just say that Cruise isn't quite there physically, but as Child recently told Empire "which actor does match Reacher physically?" (Thor's Ray Stevenson, for the record, is our answer.) Furthermore, the author explained, "the movie is not going to match the book anyway."

Chris Tucker's last role was in 2007's Rush Hour 3, but the actor-comedian is looking to make a comeback with roles in two upcoming movies: director David O. Russell's follow-up to The Fighter, The Silver Linings Playbook, and 20th Century Fox's upcoming comedy Neighborhood Watch.
Variety reports that Tucker is in talks for The Silver Linings Playbook, based on the 2008 novel by Matthew Quick. The movie follows Bradley Cooper as a former high school teacher who is released from a mental institution, moves in with his mother, and tries to win back his ex-wife but falls for his neighbor (Jennifer Lawrence) instead. Robert De Niro will play Cooper's father, while Tucker will play Danny, Cooper's friend in the mental institution. Production will begin this fall, with Tucker likely joining once he finishes his stand-up tour in November. Tucker in the neighborhood; Mulligan with the dead Posted 09.07.11 by Ryan

While Wilson eventually left the project, THR reports that Mark Wahlberg is entering into final negotiations to join the movie, which would reunite him with his Fighter director.
