Twilight Stud Kellan Lutz Hopes To Win An Oscar Someday

Kellan Lutz wants to continue acting for his entire life and feels he will win an Oscar one day. The stud opened up to DeJour Magazine in it's November issue.

"I want to act for the rest of my life. I’ll win an Oscar one day, but I’m in no rush to get there. I don’t care if that takes me 50 years, and I’m old. I just love what I do."

He also talks about how he feels about Twilight ending:

"It really is bittersweet. It’s very much like high school…and I’m ready to graduate."

I'm still proud to say I have not seen any of Twilight yet. Still, I wish Kellan the best with his career.-DocFB

The Montreux Jazz Festival is going to be a little bit more funky this year as a musical genius is planning on taking the stage not once, but twice.

The one and only Prince WILL be performing 2 shows at Montreux this year and he is  bringing a musically talented band with him. Playing with Prince at the legendary festival will be Rhonda Smith, Renato Neto, and John Blackwell.

In his 31 years in music, Prince has won every award imaginable from a Grammy to an Oscar to one of the youngest inductees ever into the Rock & Roll  Hall Of Fame. He performed at the 2007 Super Bowl in the rain no less and still gave off the performance of a lifetime.

In 2007, Prince gave a legendary performance at The Montreux Jazz Festival where tickets sold out in record time. So when ticket information and tickets become available this time, make sure to reserve your spot if you plan to attend.-Dr.FB

Prince Oscar After Show Report On It’s Way…

I am drained.  My ears sound like they are in an ocean tunnel.

I will give a much more detailed report later but right now if I did it, it would be half-assed.

Prince fooled everyone when the sounds of "Purple Rain" went off to start the show but went into the new groove of "Oldskoolcompany" (If I spelled it wrong, I am sure you will let me know.)

He played for about two hours or so.  Kicked it off at like 1:45 A.M. Covers and hits and the club really was Hollywood Swinging.

Listen, ET's Kevin Frazier was there and got an exclusive look at what looked like a cell phone of that lotusflower/lotusflow3r.com cover. You might want to record ET tonight to see if it airs.  Kevin wasn't knocking back too many drinks so he should have the report in on time.  I just kid Kev, but can the report be longer than 2 minutes this time?  Yeesh.

Let's see, big shout out to my girl from KROQ, loved hearing the bathroom story first hand and your a sweetheart.  Much love to John and my new friend Anna.  Girl, you crazy!

Also, love how another blogger posted the party news as exclusive info. Bizitch please!  ;) Heard the security guys were asking how people heard of the show n you all were saying drfunkenberry.com and I appreciate it sooo much!  As soon as I heard KROQ was called, I called 100.3 and 92.3 to let others know of the show as well.

No celeb guest list right now as my brain is mush.  I think I just need a few hours of rest and I can give it a go.  Hope you guys liked the Oscar coverage too.  Talk soon and much love.-Dr.FB

Robert Downey Jr. spoke with USA Today about his Best Supporting Actor nomination for his role in Tropic Thunder as Oscar-obsessed actor Kirk Lazarus. "It's so funny to me that the role is a guy who is an Oscar-seeking moron. His whole motivation is Oscars," he says, "Irony is synonymous with pretty much everything that is going on."

No. 2 The Death Of Heath Ledger

January 22nd, 2008 in New York, Heath Ledger died.  He died of an apparent overdose.  The movie industry, movie fans, and fans of the actor were in shock.  His loved ones in disbelief.

You know when you heard his name as the one who had died, your mouth dropped.  You did a double take.  Your first thought after the shock; he was so young.  Sleeping pills did him in. Sleeping pills.

He admitted in interviews that he was having a rough time sleeping after playing the villain Joker in the latest Batman movie, the Dark Knight.  One pill, which should knock you out for 8 hours, would knock him out for 90 minutes.  So he would take several instead of understanding his body became immune to the pills shortly after taking them.

The Dark Knight movie seemed cursed from the get go.  A stuntman died the 1st week of shooting.  Another death happened.  Then Heath's after filming.  Then Morgan Freeman escaped death in the south.  The weekend of the movie, Christian Balle's estranged family came after him.  Crazy.  Maybe Johnny Depp may want to rethink that Riddler character.

Heath Ledger jumped on the screen in 1999's Ten Things I Hate About You.  Having modest success with movies such as A Knight's Tale, he took on the role of a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain.  Not getting the Oscar and jokes behind his back, Heath stood out in a role that would have been taboo and untouchable years prior, but he took the role which gained him respect.

After agreeing to take the Joker role, some questioned his acting ability to do that and how could a person who played a gay cowboy play that role.  Leaks of Heath dressed in Joker garb dispelled most of that talk and had people going, wow, he is actually going to pull this off.  It is a shame that Heath did not live to see how respected his version of the Joker is.  How respected he is.

I must reiterate; If Heath does not only get nominated for an Oscar, and if he does not win it, the Academy Awards in many industry insiders eyes, will now be deemed as useless.  Think of it as giving Denzel the Oscar for Training Day instead of the countless other movie roles he owned over the years.  Why so serious?  Because Heath Ledger was the Best in movies of 2008.-Dr.FB

No. 7 The Dark Knight Scores At The Box Office

Even before the death of Heath Ledger, the talk of the Dark Knight series and Heath playing the Joker was hitting legend status.  When Heath was first announced in the role, the fan boy community of comic book readers were up in arms.  How could he come close to Jack Nicholson's Joker.  The Fact? In the end, he set the standard for all future Jokers.

The Dark Knight did not alter it's release date or it's promotional plan and it succeeded setting box office records for opening day and opening weekend.  It is currently 2nd place behind Titanic and is going to be re-released in theatres in just a few weeks.

The movie was long and dark and on point in all aspects.  Christian Bale was overshadowed and he did not care.  People were paying more attention to the Joker than Batman's sometimes annoying speech.

The Joker is the all time classic villan and Heath took him to new heights.  Unfortunately, Heath may have played him too well and had trouble sleeping which led to his untimely death in his 20's.  It is a known fact in Hollywood right now, if Heath does not get the Oscar for his portrayal, the Acadamy will have very much got it wrong.-Dr.FB
