'The Hills' Original Cast: Where Are They Now?

  'The Hills' Original Cast: Where Are They Now? The rest is still unwritten … or not. When The Hills first debuted in May 2006, it looked a lot different than the revival, The Hills: New Beginnings. The MTV reality show, a spinoff of Laguna Beach, followed Lauren Conrad from Laguna to Los Angeles where she moved in with Heidi Montag. Their “first friend,” who also lived in the building — and later lived with Conrad — was Audrina Patridge. While attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Conrad quickly landed an internship at Teen Vogue and met fellow intern Whitney Port. Meanwhile, Montag left school shortly after the season began when she landed a job at Bolthouse Productions. During the third episode of the season, Conrad received a call from ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler. The pair had a nasty break up during season 2 of Laguna Beach when he kissed his ex. However, after apologizing and promising he was a new man, the pair rekindled their romance and began dating again. Meanwhile, Montag was in a relationship with Jordan Eubanks. So, what about now? Although some of the original stars — Patridge, Montag and Port, moved on to The Hills: New Beginnings, Conrad did not. Plus, many fans were thrown off about whether the show was actually reality TV or scripted. “All of the situations were real situations. If it was scripted, I would’ve written even better storylines,” creator and executive producer Adam DiVello told ABC in 2016.

"Mank" led all films in nominations for the 26th annual Critics Choice Awards, the Critics Choice Association announced on Monday.

Boosted by seven nominations in below-the-line categories, David Fincher's drama set in 1930s Hollywood received 12 nominations, two more than the runner-up, Lee Isaac Chung's "Minari."

Other films with multiple nominations include "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," with eight; "News of the World," with seven; "Da 5 Bloods," "Nomadland," "One Night in Miami." "Promising Young Woman" and "The Trial of the Chicago 7" with six; and "Sound of Metal" and "Tenet" with five.

How 'Minari' Star Yeri Han Came to Sing the Lullaby-Like Closing Tune (Video)

  How 'Minari' Star Yeri Han Came to Sing the Lullaby-Like Closing Tune (Video) This story about "Minari" and composer Emile Mosseri first appeared in the Race Begins issue of TheWrap's Awards Magazine. Music is key from the very first minute of writer-director Lee Isaac Chung's "Minari," when we hear a gentle musical score by composer Emile Mosseri as a little boy named David (Alan Kim) peeks out of the window from the back seat of a station wagon. The time is the 1980s and his Korean immigrant parents (Yeri Han and Steven Yeun) have just arrived with David and his sister (Noel Kate Cho) to their new home in rural Arkansas. The poignant opening tune is actually one side of bookends.

All of those films except "Tenet" were nominated in the Best Picture category.

In the acting categories, which contained between six and eight nominees, almost all of the performers nominated for the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards were also recognized by Critics Choice voters, with the exception of Amy Adams for "Hillbilly Elegy," Sophia Loren for "The Life Ahead," Jared Leto for "The Little Things" and Jodie Foster for "The Mauritanian." "News of the World" actress Helena Zengel, a Globes and SAG supporting-actress nominee, was not nominated in that category at the Critics Choice Awards, but was nominated in the Best Young Actor/Actress category.

Minari's Alan Kim, 8, Says Earning Purple Belt in Taekwondo Was More Exciting Than Golden Globe Win

  Minari's Alan Kim, 8, Says Earning Purple Belt in Taekwondo Was More Exciting Than Golden Globe Win During the 2021 Golden Globes Sunday night, Minari was awarded best motion picture — foreign language , Sunday. "Yeah, it was exciting," Kim told host Jimmy Kimmel when asked about the award. However, the child actor — who showed up to the interview wearing the new purple belt he earned in his Taekwondo class last week — then added that it wasn't more exciting than his personal feat. "Was it more exciting than the purple belt, or no?" Kimmel, 53, asked Kim of the Golden Globe victory. He quickly replied to the host, "No.

Chadwick Boseman received two posthumous nominations, one in the Best Actor category for "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and one as Best Supporting Actor for "Da 5 Bloods."

In the past, the Critics Choice Awards have been a fairly reliable predictor of Oscar success. A few years ago, though, the organization began increasing the size of its categories in an apparent attempt to recognize as many films and studios as possible. In the process, it significantly diminished its value as an Oscar predictor.

Last year, for instance, 77 of the 94 Oscar nominees in the 18 categories that the two shows have in common received Critics Choice nominations before being honored by the Academy — but so did 39 people or films that made it into the expanded Critics Choice categories but were not nominated by the Oscars.

THEN AND NOW: The cast of 'Aquamarine' 15 years later

  THEN AND NOW: The cast of 'Aquamarine' 15 years later The teen mermaid film hit theaters back in 2006. Here's what the leading cast, including Emma Roberts and JoJo, have been up to since then.

As usual, Netflix was the dominant company in total nominations, with 46 in the film categories as compared to 13 for Amazon and 12 for Focus Features and A24. Nominations in the Critics Choice television categories were made in January – and with film and TV nominations combined, Netflix leads with 72 nominations to 24 for HBO/HBO Max and 18 for Amazon.

The Critics Choice Awards will be presented in an in-person/virtual hybrid on Sunday, Marcy 7, with actor Taye Diggs returning to host for the third consecutive time.

  The Design of 'Mank': How Costumes and Sets Energized David Fincher's Homage to Old Hollywood A version of this story about "Mank" appeared in the Race Begins issue of TheWrap's awards magazine. "Fincher-vision" is the term that costume designer Trish Summerville uses while discussing her experience working with director David Fincher. "His mind is so clear about what he wants, but there's still room for spontaneity," she said. "That's why there's so much happiness in the craft departments on his films. And so much repeat business.""Fincher-vision" is the term that costume designer Trish Summerville uses while discussing her experience working with director David Fincher.

  Why 'Mank' Sound Designer Booked an Empty Movie Theater to Make the Film 'Sound Old' (Exclusive Video) What is it about an old movie that sounds old? That was the big question asked by Ren Klyce, the supervising sound designer of David Fincher's "Mank," while working on post-production for the acclaimed Netflix film. Given that its subject is the creation of 1941's "Citizen Kane," Fincher told Klyce that he wanted the movie's audio track to contain some of the same hissy, crackly patina as you would hear in a classic of old Hollywood.
