Actors Who Received Oscar Nods For Less Than 20 Minutes Of Screen Time

Some stars can't get an Oscar nod to save their life, and no matter how many blockbuster movies they star in, or how brightly they shine in the hearts of their fans, the Academy Award eludes them.

And then there are actors like Anthony Hopkins, Ingrid Bergman and Judi Dench who don't need to be on screen for long to steal the show from their fellow stars, receiving Oscar nominations for less than 20 minutes of screen time.

Anthony Hopkins appeared in Silence Of The Lambs for less than 16 minutes and yet he took home a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Hannibal.

Ingrid Bergman won an Oscar for her performance in Murder On The Orient Express, a film in which she played a pivotal role despite only being on camera for just over fourteen minutes.

But the award for briefest appearance goes to Judi Dench, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Shakespeare In Love, which amounted to a whopping 8 minutes of screen time.

Here she is in 1999 accepting the award, which was presented by Robin Williams:

Snoop Dogg Narrates Planet Earth

Snoop Dogg is not so much a tree hugger as he is a guy who smokes trees, but that doesn't mean he's isn't a friend to his fellow animals.

As his name implies Mr. Dogg is a huge fan of animals, and his encyclopedic knowledge of all creatures great and small landed him the animal lover gig of a lifetime- narrator for the nature documentary series Planet Earth.

(YouTube Link)

BBC's Planet Earth series is normally narrated by David Attenborough, but people thought his narration left the series lacking any sort of street cred, so they brought in the Dee Oh Double Gee to make us howl with laughter!

Guy Falling For 9 Seconds While Trying To Shovel Snow: The Remixes

Slipping and sliding while shoveling snow is something many people can relate to right about now, and something that will become even more relatable in the coming months.

But the person falling down doesn't generally see the trip as a laughing matter, so they have to laugh at the guy doing the snow shovel dance in this video instead.

(YouTube Link)

His slick snow shoveling moves are so hot they melt the ice, so video remixers took him to all sorts of stellar places, including an intense battle with that shufflin' Sith Darth Maul.

(Video barely NSFW due to language at end of video)

Amazing Video Of Jim The Pit Bull Doing Barkour

What we humans refer to as parkour, animals see simply as a convenient way to get around town fast, and yet some animals have clearly been around town a bit more than others.

And when those freerunning furballs go the extra mile to impress their humans, it makes for some mighty fun-to-watch footage, like this video of Jim the Pit Bull doing his thing on the mean streets.

(YouTube Link)

Jim the Pit Bull is on a mission to prove that bark-our is even more impressive to watch than parkour, and his moves are so slick the squirrels are taking notes!

Fifteen Images That Illustrate Why Letter-Spacing Is So Important

Graphic designers know how important letter-spacing (tracking) is to a design that features lots of typography, like those created for store signs or billboards, and yet some designers still manage to fall short.

They haven't learned to leave enough space between letters so the words they're writing can be clearly understood, a rookie mistake that may cause a budding graphic designer to lose clients.

But you don't have to be in the graphic design biz to find this tip helpful- make sure you leave enough space between letters or you may end up making an anal of yourself!

Surreal Short Film Imagines What Paris Would Look Like As Deserted Movie Set

There has been a dark cloud hanging over the city of Paris since the attacks of November, 2015, but the city of Light has proven time and again that nobody can put out its fire.

However, many people who visit Paris only see the epic sights, such as the Eiffel Tower or the Arc De Triomphe , and to them Paris could be seen as a massive theme park or movie set.

(Vimeo Link)

Apparences was created by French filmmaking duo Claire & Max as a visual examination of these thoughts:

What if everything around us was false? And if our environment was ultimately a single movie set? Would we really be real in this setting? “. Many issues that fuel both an imaginary but also pose those appearances and appearance. We therefore offer 4 minutes immersion in a Paris where the facades have been reworked in order to better immerse themselves in this world so strange.

Man Hides Marriage Proposal In Every Photo Taken With Girlfriend For Months

People are pressured into coming up with bigger, bolder and more sensational marriage proposals these days due to the massive influence the internet has on our lives.

But proposer Ray Smith from Grimsby, England didn't just want to come up with an over-the-top way to propose to his girlfriend Claire- he wanted to toy with his future wife as well.

So Ray started snapping lots of pics of their time together, hiding a "will you marry me?" sign in each and every photo taken for five months, 148 photos in all, without his girlfriend ever noticing.

Ray finally popped the question on Christmas morning, using the photo montage video he'd been slyly creating for the last five months as his version of an epic proposal.

The Time Quentin Tarantino Directed An Episode Of ER

Now that Quentin Tarantino is considered part of the Hollywood elite it's hard to imagine him using his movie directing skills to create content for television.

But surprisingly Tarantino directed an episode of ER in 1995, two months after winning the Best Screenplay Oscar for Pulp Fiction, episode 24 of season one entitled "Motherhood".

(YouTube Link)

Quentin was brought into the Emergency Room by George Clooney, who was set to star in the Tarantino/Rodriguez film From Dusk Til Dawn, and a particularly violent script by Lydia Woodward was chosen to keep the episode nice and Tarantino-y.

(YouTube Link)

Tarantino was paid $30,000 for the episode, and he was hoping to come back as a recurring episode, but alas Quentin would steer clear of television for ten years until returning in 2005 to direct an episode of CSI.

There Is Nothing Wrong With This Picture

Do you see anything wrong with this photo recently posted on Imgur?

(Image Link)

I didn't really see anything but a photo of a bald guy nuzzling an infant child, but many people online are claiming they don't see a bald guy at all- they see a hairy butt hanging above the baby's head.

This optical illusion is caused by a combination of heavy body hair, baldness and the father's posture, and Internetters from all over the world have shared, and shared a laugh about, this funny optical illusion photo.

Woman Leaves Hilarious Yelp Reviews About Past Dates

Yelp has become a great way to discover a new venue without going there and getting disappointed first, and people love to add their own colorful details so their reviews really stand out.

But if you've read one bad burrito review or panning of a theme restaurant you've read them all, and for many the romance has gone out of the reviewing process on Yelp.

So what is a hopeless romantic to do when they need to find a good place to take a date based on someone's past dating experience at that venue?

They should look to the reviews left by Natalie Walker and see what her dates were like at these locations.

Miss Walker's reviews don't help people find a fine meal or score tickets to the perfect spot for sweethearts, but they definitely paint a colorful picture of Natalie's past!

The "Tree Of Death" Is Every Bit As Scary As It Sounds

The name "Tree Of Death" conjures up images of skull shaped fruit and gnarly faces forming in tree trunks, but more often than not trees earn morbid nicknames for less obvious reasons.

In the case of the Manchineel tree has earned the nickname "Tree Of Death" by growing highly toxic fruit dubbed "death apples" that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, seizures and even death.

People who make the mistake of touching the Manchineel tree receive chemical burns from the caustic sap it exudes, and the apples are so dangerous Caribbean nations have taken to posting warning signs to protect tourists.

Scientists believe most of the Manchineel tree's deadly power comes from the organic compound phorbol, which can be found in every bit of the tree, from leaf to bark to fruit.

The No Pants Subway Ride Has Gone Global

The No Pants Subway Ride is a yearly tradition started in 2002 by New York's Improv Everywhere that now takes place on train cars all over the world, from Los Angeles to Bucharest, Romania.

Participants in the No Pants Ride may cause fully clothed passengers to stare and sneer, and occasionally leer,  but mostly this "international celebration of silliness" just makes people smile.

The No Pants Ride tradition is sure to keep spreading across the globe like the infections now spreading across the legs of the pantsless, and it will be interesting to see which country drops trou next!

Girl Forgets Stuffed Rabbit At Hotel, Staff Gives It The Royal Treatment

When a child loses their plush friend it can seem like the end of the world to them, because they've formed such a strong attachment to their toy they can't imagine living without it.

More often than not these lost toys end up devoured by dogs, adopted by another kid or tossed in the trash, but if the kid is lucky their plush pal gets to go on a grand adventure instead.

When the staff at the Adare Manor Hotel in Ireland found a plush bunny a child had left behind they got worried, so Claire the concierge called around to see if she could locate its owner.

And while the bunny waited to be reunited with its child it enjoyed the royal treatment courtesy of the Adare Manor staff. The bunny enjoyed a relaxing nap outdoors before breakfast.

And later the lucky bunny was treated to a deep fluff massage before turning in for the night

The next day plush bunny and child were reunited, and as you can tell from the smile on her face this young lady is extremely grateful to have her plush friend back after a few scary days apart.

Woman Has DUI Charges Dropped Due To Auto-Brewery Syndrome

I'm sure most drivers charged with a DUI claim they "only had a few" when they're arrested, but a recent court case proves sometimes they're telling the truth- because they suffer from Auto-brewery syndrome.

Auto-brewery syndrome causes food and drinks to ferment in their stomachs, which can cause blood alcohol content levels to spike and result in a misreading.

A schoolteacher from upstate New York recently had her DUI charges dismissed when she submitted medical proof that her BAC was 4 times over the legal limit due to this strange syndrome.

(YouTube Link)

Doctors monitored the woman for a day and discovered her average BAC was .34, four times the legal limit in New York, even though she didn't drink a drop of alcohol.

To Enter This Speakeasy You Have To Go Through An Adult Bookstore

The speakeasy trend is still going strong, but nowadays these "secret" drinking spots don't need to hide because of Prohibition laws- they're just using a gimmick to attract adventurous patrons.

But don't get me wrong, gimmicks can be fun as long as they enhance the experience, and a fun gimmick can really set the mood!

A new speakeasy in Los Angeles called Adults Only requires patrons to make their way through a video store to the adult section, where they can head behind the curtain and drink in the lap of old time luxury.

The juxtaposition of cheeky entrance and classy interior makes for a memorable speakeasy experience, and the video store isn't actually in operation so you don't have to feel like a pervert walking into the place!

God Was The Last Person David Bowie Followed On Twitter

It's natural for conspiracy theories to come crawling out of the woodwork and start skittering across the internet when a beloved celebrity we worshipped like a god dies.

David Bowie was definitely one of those gods among men, and devoted fans are still struggling to make sense of the loss, especially since Bowie was so secretive about his imminent death.

But could he have been leaving a clue for his fans via the last person he followed on Twitter?

(Image Link)

Probably not, but people with a Jareth (Thin White Duke? Ziggy Stardust?) shaped hole in their heart don't want to believe he's passed on. To them I say this- forget the God Tweets and look to Lazarus for answers...

Man Sets World Record For Most Lit Candles Extinguished By Farting

As a kid we're told farting is rude, crude and utterly offensive, because parents don't want to turn farting into a fun activity for their kids and therefore have to smell stinky farts all day.

These parents wisely gloss over the fact that there are world records for farting, and that some people have actually become famous for their farts.

A Filipino man by the name of Gerard Jessie is one of these famous farters, and here he is setting the world record for most lit candles extinguished by farting.

Hilarious Satirical Video Lampooning Die-Hard Trump Fans

It's beginning to look a lot like a presidential election year here in the United States, and yet most voters still don't know which way they're leaning since the presidential hopefuls don't fill us with much hope.

The Public Integrity Alliance of Arizona, one of the most conservative Republican groups in America, wants to help us make up our minds by eliminating one candidate from the ballot- Donald Trump.

They see Trump's plans to "Make America Great Again" as a mockery of what America really needs, so they created this viciously satirical video showing what's wrong with those who see Trump's plans as progressive.

(YouTube Link)

Comedian Brian Nissen plays "Dwain" the ultimate Trump supporter in the video, and even though Trump fans should see the video as insulting they actually seem to like it, proving we've shifted over to Bizarro World after all.

Advancing The Art Of The GIF

We should not have to apologize for loving GIFs, because those little animated loops of awesomeness that bring joy into our lives a few seconds at a time are an art form all their own.

But some people feel GIFs are played out, because the internet is inundated with TV show and movie clips in GIF form, and to those fed up folks I say don't give up on GIFs just yet!

Crazy And Dangerous Experiments Involving Powerful Neodymium Magnets

 photo magnets_zpso2doixnj.gif

The mere mention of "dangerous experiments" makes those interested in scientific inquiry drool with delight, because while dangerous isn't always fun to do on your own it's always fun to watch!

Large and powerful magnets, like the neodymium, are inherently dangerous because they can wreak havoc on electronics including pacemakers and other implanted medical devices, so experiment at your own risk.

(YouTube Link)

Or you can simply sit back and let a guy named Brian, aka Brainiac, play with his massive neodymium magnets on video, destroying his own stuff for your science-lovin' amusement!

Brainiac has lots to see on his YouTube channel, including informative videos comparing the magnets in his collection and showing how they're delivered to his doorstep, so we can learn more about the mysteries of magnetism.

Man Has Hilarious Reaction To Finding His Car Stuck In Flooded Parking Lot

The El Niño winter has brought record breaking rainfall to California after a long drought, resulting in lots of flooding and worryingly wet conditions in normally dry and sunny cities.

These effects are most noticeable when you're driving, which virtually everyone does on a daily basis in San Diego, and those unfamiliar with the city don't realize our roads flood with ease.

One shopping mall parking garage in particular is notorious for flooding, water levels rising to three or four feet at times, yet no signs are posted to warn drivers about potential flooding during rainstorms.

The flooding of Fashion Valley mall has become a yearly tradition in San Diego, one which the man in the video clearly wasn't warned about before he decided to go shopping!

Artist Creates Awesome 3D Portraits Using Paint Swatches

Unless you're an interior designer, house painter or someone equally concerned with adding color to the home you have very little use for those paint swatches they give out at the hardware store.

Typically people will bring a set of swatches home when they're repainting their space, and then when they're done with the recolor they throw them all away, but artist Peter Combe came up with a less wasteful use for swatches- he makes 3D portraits.

Peter takes standard paint store swatches in a full 1,100 colors and either punches them into discs or shreds them into strips before assembling them into these compelling 3D portraits.

The portraits look like a sea of swatches up close, pull back a bit and the portrait starts to take shape, but to really see how the gradation of color sells the illusion of depth you have to view them as a thumbnail:

First Person View Video Of Car Flipping Off Side Of Mountain

We've all seen cars plummeting off cliffs in movies and TV shows, usually with a low angle shot to emphasize the accident's severity, but have you ever seen a car go off the side of a cliff from the front seat?

If you answered yes then we're glad you're still with us, and that must've been some ride! For the rest of us the answer is thankfully "uh, no", and that's the way we'd like it to stay.

But thanks to this first person video shot with a dashboard GoPro by accidental daredevil TurboFoz we can see what the ride is like without risking our lives.

Simple "Hack" Lets You Unlock Thousands Of Hidden Categories On Netflix

(Image Link)

When you watch Netflix through your web browser you see titles sorted into obvious categories like Action, Comedy or Television Shows, with a web address that looks like this- http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/10757

The number at the end indicates the genre, in this case "British Movies", and by changing that number you can discover all kinds of super specific categories you wouldn't see otherwise.

(Image Link)

You can see a full list of the extremely specific "streaming by type" categories on Netflix here, such as Action & Adventure based on real life from the 1980s (1051), Gritty Chinese Action & Adventure from the 1980s (208) or Violent Cult Movies from the 1980s (3539).

Some of the links on the list don't work, which isn't surprising given Netflix's ever changing selection, but those that do may turn you on to some new movies you may not have stumbled upon otherwise.

Fallout 4 Player's Wife Sends Him On Quest To Find Game Disc

Hardcore gamers know how important a game can become to their lives, and once you've set out on a virtual journey to decide your character's fate that journey must be completed or sanity points will be lost IRL.

This is especially true when the game is an epic RPG that you've already sunk dozens, if not hundreds, of hours into playing, like the awesome new lifewaster game Fallout 4.

Imgur user malcolm10 left home for a day to seek adventure in the outside world, thinking of nothing but his beloved the entire time, but when he got home he found that his wicked wife had hidden his precious game disc.

Malcolm10 (real name Ryan) felt betrayed by this act of cruelty against his beloved game, and yet the quest to find the disc proved intriguing so he journeyed onward.

Ryan would not allow his jealous wife to take away the virtual love of his life, nor would he rest until he could once again plant his butt and play the game, so the search continued until...

Time Lapse Video Of Body Painting Artist Transforming Herself Into Thanos

Body painting is not only mind-blowing to see when its finished, it's also really fun to watch being done, especially in time lapse so you can see the whole thing come together while your attention span holds strong.

Now take the fun of watching of an ordinary bodypaint video and multiply it by 10000x, because seeing Kay Pike turn herself into Thanos at 10000x speed is just plain super!

It's really hard to tell where Kay's facial features lie under all that line work and color when the transformation is complete, and if the makeup career doesn't pan out Kay would make a great inker!

Wife Texts Husband All The Things He Says While Talking In His Sleep

It's hard to share a bed with someone who has a problem sleeping, but it's even worse sharing a bed with someone who snores, thrashes around or talks in their sleep.

But if you can't break up, or sleep in a separate bedroom, you should make the most of the situation by finding ways to mock your partner mercilessly about the annoying stuff they do while you're trying to sleep.

Lindsay Stamhuis knew her husband Aidan Hailes was a sleep talker and she learned to deal with it the fun way- by sending him texts of all the amazing things he says in his sleep.

At first I felt the texts were a bit passive aggressive of her, but when you read the texts you see that she genuinely enjoys all the weird stuff Aidan says while sleeping.

 

And really it's like Aidan is telling her a story every night, a story that interrupts her sleep but is still entertaining...and sometimes hard to understand.

Pictures That Prove We're Living In The Future

(Image Link)

We may not be living in the personal jet packs and flying cars future sci-fi made us dream about, but our 21st century world is pretty futuristic.

Or maybe we should start referring to the the world we live in , and the tech we've integrated into our lives, as modernistic, because the future is now.

We've got prosthetic hands that can be 3D printed and built in less than 48 hours, hundreds of gigabytes of memory in our tiny SD cards, and one little smartphone replaced eight different devices.

(Image Link)

And speaking of that most futuristic form of reproduction 3D printing we can now use a pen to "print" a 3D "drawing", we can print out chocolate in any shape we want, and we can create the ultimate birthing memento- a 3D print of your unborn child.

Samuel L. Jackson Reads Famous Movie Lines His Way

Movie stars don't come much more recognizable or badass than Samuel L. Jackson, the guy who somehow manages to be a Jedi and a Bad Mother...er at the same time.

Part of the reason he's so recognizable are all the infinitely quotable lines he's delivered with a little extra L. in movies like Pulp Fiction, Snakes On A Plane and, most recently, in Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

But as you can see in this clip from The Late Show With Stephen Colbert not all famous movie lines and catchphrases sound cool coming out of Samuel L.'s mouth.

(YouTube Link)

Mr. Jackson also managed to come up with the perfect plot for Snakes On A Plane 2- Lions and tigers and bears on a plane, oh my!
