Redemption for 'Grace of Monaco' at the Emmys

22 August 2015 8:52 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"Grace of Monaco" made a dramatic Hollywood comeback when Emmy nominations were announced on July 16. To the surprise of most pundits, it earned a nomination for Best TV Movie. The film stars Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly during the time when Kelly was the princess of Monaco and her husband, Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth), was in conflict with French president Charles de Gaulle (André Penvern). -Break- 'Secret Life of Marilyn' & 'Grace of Monaco': Emmys for portraying showbiz legends? Originally intended for theatrical release, the film never made it to theaters. The production was troubled by criticisms from Kelly's children, a behind-the-scenes battle for final cut and a chilly reception at the Cannes Film Festival where it premiered in 2014. But despite being written off by almost everybody, Lifetime took a chance on it and aired it on May 25, just in time to make it eligible at the Emmys. »

'Secret Life of Marilyn' & 'Grace of Monaco': Emmys for portraying showbiz legends?

21 August 2015 4:37 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Lifetime's "The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe" and "Grace of Monaco" each earned Emmy nominations for Best Movie/Miniseries Hairstyling; the former also contends for Best Movie/Miniseries Makeup. These telefilms tell the stories of two of the most famously glamorous women in show business history: Marilyn Monroe (Kelli Garner) and Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman). Will one of these period pieces prevail at the Creative Arts Emmys on Sept. 12? -Break- Who are this year's famous Emmy-nominated producers: Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga ... Since 2000, the Emmys have honored four films about Hollywood legends -- "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" (2000), "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows" (2001), "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" (2005) and "Behind the Candelabra" (2012) about the life of Liberace -- with Best Movie/Miniseries Hairstyling. Other films about i »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best TV Movie

20 August 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On our honor, we did discuss the possibility of Nicole Kidman's heavily-chastised "Grace of Monaco" making the cut in another weak year for TV movies, but actually seeing it happen was still shocking. After a rough run at Cannes, the film was made a mockery by critics (and its own screenwriter) when the Grace Kelly biopic officially became a Lifetime movie (even though the network is going through an exciting rebranding period). Yet that didn't stop it from breaking into the Emmys race. Now the question becomes: can it pull off another upset, this time to an even larger degree?  The odds aren't looking great. With two strong entries from awards darling HBO, Lifetime would have to make a push big enough to win back some of the respect that seems permanently lost for this film. Kidman being kept out of the actress race won't help, either, as both »

Alfred Hitchcock's Top 25 Films, Ranked

13 August 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Debates about Alfred Hitchcock have been raging for decades. Was he a cruel genius who treated his actors like cattle, torturing his icy blondes' performances out of them? (Some, like established movie star Grace Kelly, handled him better than others.) Some critics prefer the more whimsical British Hitchcock, tongue tucked in cheek, although his first breakout hit "The Lodger" (1927) was a sign of things to come. Clearly, Hitchcock learned from early Hollywood mentor David O. Selznick, who taught him a great deal, points out David Thomson in "The New Biographical Dictionary of Film." Over 50 years, the filmmaker always had visual flair and a distinct style, and knew how to implicate audiences in his dark, often opaque characters. Cary Grant, especially, excelled at playing charismatic men whose motives and true nature were open to interpretation, from "Suspicion" to "Notorious." Hitchcock was a true artist in the sense that he often »

Marilyn Monroe: Nine Years of Stardom and a Legacy That Won’t Quit

5 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

August 5 marks the anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death in 1962. Few Hollywood stars have created such a powerful legacy based on such a small, brief output: starring roles in 11 films, released during a nine-year period.

Fox ran an ad in Daily Variety in 1952, the year Monroe starred in “Don’t Bother to Knock,” proclaiming her “a new star.” Studios often took out ads to promote contract players and 20th Century Fox was building her career, so the promo wasn’t unusual. However, in her case, the words sound more factual than hype.

Her big breakthrough occurred in 1953, when she starred in “Niagara,” “How to Marry a Millionaire” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” all for Fox. From that point until her death, at age 36, she was the hottest thing in Hollywood.

In “Conversations With Wilder,” director Billy Wilder told Cameron Crowe that he didn’t like working with her. In 1955’s “The Seven Year Itch, »

The Year's Most Lavish Royal Wedding is Happening This Weekend

31 July 2015 | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's been a big Summer for the British royals and we got to see the Swedish royals get married in a lavish ceremony, but now the Monaco royals are grabbing the spotlight! Pierre Casirahgi and his girlfriend of six years, Beatrice Borromeo, made it official with a wedding last Saturday. The civil ceremony at Monaco's Pink Palace was followed by a garden party and a reception at Monaco's Hotel de Paris. But the "low-key" celebrations weren't the only plans for the couple's nuptials, since they'll have a more extravagant religious ceremony on Beatrice's family's private islands in Italy this weekend. Twenty-seven-year-old Pierre, who is the son of Princess Caroline of Monaco and the grandson of Grace Kelly, met Beatrice in 2008 when they were both studying at University Luigi Bocconi in Milan. They became engaged in 2014 after Pierre proposed with a pear-shaped pink diamond. While he's seventh in line for the throne of Monaco, »

Grace Kelly's Granddaughter Stuns in Harper's Bazaar -- See the Resemblance?

21 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Good looks run in the Grimaldi family. Grace Kelly's granddaughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi keeps her late ancestor's spirit alive in a stunning new photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar, where she's given a glam, Old Hollywood makeover.  Jazmin is the 23-year-old daughter of Prince Albert II -- Princess Grace's son with Prince Rainier II -- and former waitress Tamara Rotolo. Albert didn't admit he was Jazmin's father publicly until 2006, but Grimaldi says her mother never kept it a secret from her. "I was 14, getting ready to go to high school, when it hit the media that my father had a daughter, and it was me," Jazmin tells the magazine. "It's a difficult time for any young adult, and it was an adjustment to have that attention. But I knew it was going to come someday." While Jazmin never got to meet her grandmother, who died in a tragic car »

Watch: Trailer For Cannes-Approved Classic Cinema Documentary 'Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words'

17 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The stench of Grace Kelly biopic “Grace Of Monaco,” which opened Cannes in 2014 before ending up as a literal Lifetime Movie, was hard to wash off the Croisette. This year, another film focusing on an iconic female actress (and Hitchcock lead) of classic Hollywood proved far more successful, with the screening in the Cannes Classics sidebar of “Ingrid Bergman In Her Own Words.”  A documentary, rather than a biopic (thank Christ) “In Her Own Words,” from filmmaker Stig Björkman, is a Swedish film that looks to do exactly what it sets out to in the title: to tell the story of the star of “Casablanca,” “Notorious” and “Stromboli,” among others. Björkman does so through Bergman's own personal diary, along with home movie footage and personal photographs. The film was made with the blessing of her family, with daughter Isabella Rossellini being the one who initially suggested making the film. As the film’s trailer, »

Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace Of Monaco’ Goes From Cannes Calamity To Emmy Contender

16 July 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

What a long, strange trip it's been for Grace Of Monaco. The Nicole Kidman starrer was crowned Cannes' opening-night film amid much French fanfare in 2014 and then quickly fizzled on the Croisette, beset as it was by harsh reviews. It didn't help that it also was the subject of a battle over cuts between U.S. distributor The Weinstein Co and director Olivier Dahan as well as protests from the royal family of Monaco over the depiction of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier… »

‘Grace Of Monaco’ gets Emmy nod

16 July 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

After a brief and tumultuous career as a feature film the Nicole Kidman starrer earned a nomination on Thursday for best television movie.

Grace Of Monaco, which opened Cannes last year, will vie for the Emmy with Agatha Christie’s Poirot: Curtain, Poirot’s Last Case, Bessie, Hello Ladies: The Movie, Killing Jesus and Nightingale.

Critics branded the Grace Kelly biopic a flop when it debuted on the Croisette in May 2014. By that time Us distributor The Weinstein Company had postponed the release twice – no doubt aware the film had a shot at Cannes – and were mired in an ongoing spat with director Olivier Dahan.

Back in October 2013 the Frenchman had railed publicly to national newspaper Liberation about his displeasure over the fact that there were two versions of the film – his cut and the Weinsteins’ cut. Lotus Entertainment handled international sales.

Earlier this year it emerged that Grace Of Monaco would not get a Us theatrical »

Back to the Future turns 30: How the world looked in 1955, 1985 and 2015

1 July 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the run-up to Back to the Future's 30th anniversary on July 3, Digital Spy presents a week of special features celebrating the time-travel classic.

Has it really been 30 years since Back to the Future first arrived in cinemas? The '80s classic is one of those films that stands firm under repeat viewings, retaining its humour, heart and on-point performances from Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and co. Simply put, there isn't a frame out of place in Back to the Future.

Though Robert Zemeckis's film still feels as fresh as ever, the world has changed dramatically across the three main periods the Back to the Future series spans. Digital Spy digs deep into the history books to find out how the world looked in 1955, 1984, and where we are now.

Oscar-Nominated Actor Biggest Professional Regret: Turning Down 'Doctor Who'

19 June 2015 4:25 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ron Moody in Mel Brooks' 'The Twelve Chairs.' The 'Doctor Who' that never was. Ron Moody: 'Doctor Who' was biggest professional regret (See previous post: "Ron Moody: From Charles Dickens to Walt Disney – But No Harry Potter.") Ron Moody was featured in about 50 television productions, both in the U.K. and the U.S., from the late 1950s to 2012. These included guest roles in the series The Avengers, Gunsmoke, Starsky and Hutch, Hart to Hart, and Murder She Wrote, in addition to leads in the short-lived U.S. sitcom Nobody's Perfect (1980), starring Moody as a Scotland Yard detective transferred to the San Francisco Police Department, and in the British fantasy Into the Labyrinth (1981), with Moody as the noble sorcerer Rothgo. Throughout the decades, he could also be spotted in several TV movies, among them:[1] David Copperfield (1969). As Uriah Heep in this disappointing all-star showcase distributed theatrically in some countries. »

Filmmakers Take Advantage of Monaco’s No-Fee Production

11 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Monaco has ranked as a desirable shooting location for international productions ever since Alfred Hitchock lensed “To Catch a Thief” there in 1954.

Despite lacking a tax shelter, in the past two decades Monaco has hosted such films as Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Twelve,” Robert Downey Jr. starrer “Iron Man 2,” Pascal Chaumeil’s “Heartbreaker” and Pierre Salvadori’s “Priceless.”

With its ornate Casino (pictured above) and Opera, and palaces like the Hermitage and Hotel de Paris, the luxurious neighborhood known as Monte Carlo ranks among the world’s most opulent places.

Since Monaco isn’t part of France, it doesn’t offer the same attractive tax incentives — a 20% tax rebate capped for foreign productions — but it boasts low business taxes (and no income taxes for individuals).

Charles III, the prince of Monaco and a film lover, has inherited the public-image awareness of his mother, Grace Kelly, and understands the power of media. »

Paul Haggis Got Oscar Isaac to Exchange His Beard for a ‘Wacky’ Retro Mustache

11 June 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Oscar Isaac is having a boom year, with Ex Machina out this spring and the new Star Wars looming in December. This summer, he’ll be on the small screen in HBO mini-series Show Me a Hero, as Nicholas Wasicsko, the mayor of Yonkers during a 1980s battle over public housing in the city. Vulture ran into director Paul Haggis, who, along with David Simon, co-created Show Me a Hero, at a screening of Rear Window hosted by the Princess Grace Foundation-usa. We pressed him on what it was like to work with Simon and Isaac. “David’s a lovely man. Oscar’s a pain in the ass,” joked Haggis. “No, he’s an incredibly talented actor. I’d just sit back and admire him often. He didn’t need much direction.”But more important, how did Haggis get Isaac to shave his glorious, much-beloved beard? “Well, he was playing a real-life character, »

Film Festival Orphans ‘Nightingale,’ ‘Stockholm’ Click with TV Audiences

11 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Elliott Lester’s David Oyelowo starrer “Nightingale” premiered at the L.A. Film Festival in summer 2014. Nicole Kidman’s Grace Kelly biopic “Grace of Monaco” opened the Cannes Film Festival one month earlier. And Nikole Beckwith’s “Stockholm, Pennsylvania,” featuring bravura turns from Saoirse Ronan and Cynthia Nixon, bowed in competition this spring at Sundance. All were subsequently picked up for distribution and are expected to cast a serious shadow on the upcoming awards race.

Of course, the awards in question are Emmys, and the distribs are HBO, Lifetime and Lifetime, respectively. While television’s pull on topnotch feature helmers and actors is old news, cable networks have recently started looking to film festivals to supply quality product. And filmmakers are finding a new avenue to chase viewers and laurels outside of the beleaguered indie distribution apparatus.

In the case of “Nightingale,” the film bowed to scant attention while Oyelowo »

Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly in High Noon – This Weekend at Webster University

10 June 2015 8:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

High Noon (1952) is considered a classic for good reason. It’s about a man not too different from us, who faces an enemy from his past alone precisely because no one else will if he doesn’t. High Noon gets me just with the cast alone. Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Thomas Mitchell, Lee Van Cleef, and Lon Chaney. I mean come on, that’s a fantastic cast. They all add to the movie in one way or another. Cooper is absolutely superb as Will Kane – the weary marshal who’s reluctant to give up his star. He anchors the movie. It’s his journey as high noon approaches quickly and we’re spellbound by his plight. Kelly plays his newlywed wife and is less naive than you’d think. Thomas Mitchell is the mayor of this small town and his scene at church is a highlight of the film. Then »
