The Academy Awards are this Sunday, April 25 at 7pm! In honor of this ceremony, which are awards for artistic and technical merit in the film industry, enjoy these two coffee  connections in movies!

  • Director David Fincher thought the Starbucks shops popping up on every block of LA in the late ‘90s was “too much of a good thing,” so he poked fun of the coffee chain in Fight Club. He’s claimed to have sneaked a Starbucks cup into every shot, with the permission of the chain—with one exception. Starbucks didn’t want its shop destroyed on film, so that scene uses the made-up Gratifico Coffee instead.
  • The coffee shop in Training Day might feel a bit familiar to some audiences since it is frequently used on movies. Morgan Freeman and Gwyneth Paltrow met there in Se7en. Tom Hanks had a meal there in Catch Me if You Can. And Nicolas Cage frequented it in Gone in 60 Seconds.
