Joaquin Phoenix Thanks Oscar Crowd for ‘Second Chance’: ‘I’ve Been Selfish, I’ve Been Cruel’
Joaquin Phoenix accepted his best actor award for “Joker” at Sunday’s Academy Awards with a lengthy and impassioned speech that touched on racism, animal rights and his own ability to grow and change.

In an expansion to his speech at the BAFTAs about representation in the film industry, Phoenix referenced a suite of progressive causes. “Whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights,

‘Toy Story 4’: How Pixar Upped the Stakes for Woody with a Scary Antique Store

‘Toy Story 4’: How Pixar Upped the Stakes for Woody with a Scary Antique Store
Getting Woody out of his comfort zone was the primary goal of “Toy Story 4,” and the Second Chance antique store became Pixar’s most complex achievement in worldbuilding. The 8,000 square-foot, Art Deco-style retail space, full of lost toys clamoring to get out and lorded over by creepy ’50s doll Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks), was the perfect place to disarm the befuddled toy sheriff.

Second Chance Antiques was constructed like a giant toy city with a multitude of themed areas that functioned as neighborhoods, packed with 10,000 objects. It was like a maze of crowded aisles and dark passageways (inspired by the noirish street photography of Fan Ho), and required such detail that the animators became experts at dust and aging. The additional factor, though, was keeping everything low to the ground to maintain the crucial toy perspective.

After scouring local Northern California antique malls and stores and studying how vintage objects age,

‘Survivor’ 38: Which veteran player is most likely to return from the ‘Edge of Extinction’? [Poll]
They knew what they were getting into. They figured they would have huge targets on their backs. But the quartet of returning “Survivor” veterans — Aubry Bracco, Joe Anglim, David Wright and Kelley Wentworth — too often let their guard down when it came to the other less-experienced players, who have blindsided all four of them at tribal council after the 10th episode of Season 38.

But they still might get a second chance after choosing to spend some time on the purgatorial Extinction Island. One newbie player, Rick Devens, already re-entered the game after winning a challenge opposite other residents of the forbidding oasis after the tribal merge. Just achieving that feat helps him to become one of the front-runners. The joke-loving TV news anchor has a great social game and has pretty much made smart choices since returning to the game — even winning an immunity challenge this week. But let’s

Kelley then shook up the game by telling the Edge of Extinction castaways that Lauren O’Connell has the other immunity idol — might that information come back to haunt Lauren?
