The Oscars are Sunday night and Denzel Washington is among those in the running for the Best Actor award for his role as an alcoholic pilot in Flight.

HipHollywood recently caught up with Washington who revealed some of the preparation that went into his Oscar-nominated performance. “I got into these flight simulators to try and learn how to fly the planes but I also spent a lot of time with pilots,” he explained.

The celebrated actor also revealed what he learned about pilots helping other pilots battling addictions, saying, “What I dug about talking to some of these guys is that they don’t shun [the other pilots], they put them in programs, they circle around them and they want to keep them.”

We’ll have to wait until Sunday to see if Denzel’s hard work paid off, but win or lose, Denzel is excited to be nominated. He shared with us his excitement about the possibility of being nominated during the film’s junket. Check it out!


Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response



HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.

The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.

We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.

After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:

“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”

He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”

The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.

As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.

Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.

The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
