Josh Hutcherson is getting ready to present an award at the Academy Awards tomorrow night. It’s his first time presenting, which can understandably be a little nerve wracking. He could ask his costar and awards-season sensation Jennifer Lawrence for some advice; but it turns out that Josh is going to avoid that at all costs.
“I don’t want to ask her any advice about the Oscars. I’m staying away from that train wreck for sure,” Josh told E! News. (Jennifer infamously tripped at the Oscars twice the last two years.) Josh laughed, believing he should be safe considering “I don’t have heels.”
Be sure to tune in to the Academy Awards tomorrow, Sunday night, at 8:30 EST/5:30 PST on ABC to see how he does!

Tributes if you aren’t able to get your hands on the Mockingjay Part 1 Digital HD version just yet or if you have to wait until the Blu-ray/DVD comes out in your area, Roadshow Entertainment has just what you need to tide you over. On the Australian Distributor’s Official Site for the film they have uploaded more behind the scenes clips, sneak peeks at interviews from the documentary, AND even more of the deleted scenes (along with the previously released content)! Now of course these are just tidbits of what you’ll see when you have access to the full complement of special features, but it’s certainly enough to wet your appetite.
We are choosing not to share these videos directly on our site as we know there are fans who are trying to avoid Blu-ray spoilers and this is a major avalanche of content! So for those that are eager to view what’s available, you can check them out at themockingjaylives.au. Enjoy!
Mockingjay Part 1 is probably the most tame costume wise as far as The Hunger Games film franchise is concerned. No more do we see the glammed up tribute parade or the over the top fashions of Effie and the Capitol. Things are now more muted, with not much more than the simple greys of the standard issue clothing in District 13. But that didn’t stop Mockingjay costume designers, Kurt and Bart, from bringing thier unique style to the film, including creating a Cinna style Mockingjay costume for Katniss, helping Effie to shine even with her new limitations, and showing Peeta’s declining state through simple color choices. Read on to find out more in this great interview with them and MTV.
Thanks to PopSugar we are getting yet another BTS Clip from Mockingjay Part 1. This time Francis Lawrence, Nina Jacobson and Elizabeth Banks share how the decison was made to give Effie more of a role in the last two films.
This was definitely one of the best decisions made in the film series, and we are excited to see what Effie’s presence will bring to Part 2.
You can see more BTS tidbits in the iTunes Digital HD release of Mockingjay Part 1 and with the Blu-ray/DVD pack releasing on March 6th.
Today marked the digital home entertainment release for Mockingjay Part 1. But that hasn’t stopped the flow of behind the scenes goodies from the special features. Earlier we got a look at a tease at how complicated shooting the hospital scene for District 8 really was, and we learned why Francis Lawrence chose to delete that amazing scene between President Snow and Peeta. Now, we are getting more of a peek into the featurette “Rebels and Warriors: The Cast” from the BTS documentary. We got a short preview of this all ready with that fun clip of Josh and Jennifer goofing off in the District 13 hospital set. You’ll recognize some of the same clips from that tease in here, but we also get a bit more as well.
This video upload courtesy of JoBlo Movie Trailers is basically just a short cut and paste piece from the full feature that you can find in the iTunes digital version and the Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack that will be releasing on March 6th. Regardless it’s still a great look at our wonderful cast and their interactions on set.
Mockingjay Part 1 is available now on Digital HD, but for those that have to wait to watch until the Blu-ray/DVD is released, we have another BTS treat for you. The WSJ Speakeasy blog has another BTS look at Mockingjay Part 1. This time we are looking into the difficulties of filming the District 8 hospital scene, especially in the areas of makeup and playing ratings limbo. Take a look:
