Steven Spielberg was handed the 'Legend of our lifetime' award at the Rakuten TV Empire Awards last night and took the opportunity to mention the 'Time's Up' movement.

“It’s been a rich and diverse year for film and for gender and for race, and for speaking out. Thank you, Time’s Up. We were very much on board from the very beginning. This is more important than any of us can ever really realise.”

He also confirmed that the fifth Indiana Jones movie will be shot in the UK which was met with a huge applause from the audience.

During his speech Spielberg took the opportunity to thank the special collaborators he's had the fortune of working with over the years.  These included film editor, Michael Khan who Spielberg has worked with for 42 years.  Other mentions were Janusz KamiƄski, Joanna Johnston, Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and of course, John Williams.

Star Wars did well at the awards picking up best actress for Daisy Ridley in The Last Jedi and Mark Hamill picked up the 'Empire Icon Trophy.'  Hamill said:

“Empire I think of as a magazine written by fans, for fans. First and foremost, that describes me, and I think the fans realise that — I’m one of them,” he said, adding: “I share this with all of you, and with the fans. Without them, I certainly wouldn’t be standing here.”

The film itself also picked up the best film prize.

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
