Sam Rockwell (‘Three Billboards’) would be sixth Best Supporting Actor Oscar champ to beat a co-star

Sam Rockwell (‘Three Billboards’) would be sixth Best Supporting Actor Oscar champ to beat a co-star
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” ended a 26-year drought in Best Supporting Actor, producing two nominees, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, from the same film for the first time since “Bugsy” (1991) stars Harvey Keitel and Ben Kingsley lost to Jack Palance (“City Slickers”). By all appearances, it’s smooth sailing for Rockwell for the win, which would be the sixth time a Best Supporting Actor winner defeated a co-star in 18 dual duels.

“Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” (1939) stars Harry Carey and Claude Rains were the first co-stars to be nominated against each other in Best Supporting Actor, but they lost to Thomas Mitchell for “Stagecoach.” It would be another 32 years — with seven pairs of double nominees in between — before a Best Supporting Actor champ, Ben Johnson, beat a co-star, Jeff Bridges, for 1971’s “The Last Picture Show.”

Three years later, Robert De Niro prevailed over fellow “The Godfather Part II

Divided Oscar Loyalties: Who Do They Really Want to Win the Gold?

Decisions, decisions: Academy Awards voters have plenty of worthy nominees to choose from as they mark their ballots in the final stretch of a particularly competitive Oscar season.

But what about those voters who struggle with divided loyalties? There are a handful every year: those who, in fact, have strong ties to more than one of the nominees. On the macro level, the spotlight would probably be on Focus Features and Fox Searchlight Pictures, which each have two films in the thick of the hunt for the best picture prize.

Searchlight has Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” and Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” both of which emerged from the Telluride-Toronto-New York fall-festival nexus. Focus’ “Darkest Hour” and year-end entry “Phantom Thread” claim two more of the positions in competition. That sound you hear is the barely suppressed glee of parents who each have two children in solid contention for the top

‘Luther’, ‘Mistresses’ & ‘Life On Mars’ Getting Korean Remakes – BBC Showcase

Idris Elba's tormented detective Luther is getting a Korean makeover after broadcaster Mbc ordered a local remake. The remake is one of three Korean scripted format deals struck with BBC Worldwide, which has been ramping up local remake agreements for its dramas. Mistresses, which was remade by ABC with Alyssa Milano in the U.S., and Life on Mars, which got a short-lived U.S. remake with ABC starring Harvey Keitel, are also being remade in the Asian country.

Polish Co-Productions Continue Apace as Film Incentives Wait for Final Legislation

Polish Co-Productions Continue Apace as Film Incentives Wait for Final Legislation
Polish co-productions are clearly on the ascendant even with the country’s planned 25% cash-back incentives not yet in force. The sweetener package, similar to ones in effect in the neighboring Czech Republic and Hungary, is still wending its way through the legislature as local producers continue to compete for business.

“In general, there were around 15 co-productions in 2017, be it minority or majority,” says Film Commission Poland’s Tomasz Dabrowski.

You might be hard-pressed to say the incentives delay is hurting the production sector, at least for the past year. Polish-u.K. co-production “Loving Vincent,” with each frame hand-painted in the style of the film’s subject Vincent van Gogh, recently grabbed an Oscar nomination for animated feature.

Hugh Welchman, based in Poland, co-directed with Dorota Kobiela and sought out U.K. participation in the partially Kickstarter-funded film to widen its appeal.

“We decided to make it a Polish-u.K. production because

Toni Collette & Harvey Keitel in Trailer for Parisian Comedy 'Madame'

"It's like a slow motion car crash..." Blue Fox Entertainment has debuted an official Us trailer for the indie comedy Madame, set in Paris, starring two great actors - Toni Collette and Harvey Keitel. Collette & Keitel play a wealthy and well-connected American couple who just moved into a big house in Paris. They host a fancy dinner party with other upper class guests, but to even out the number of those at the table, they recruit their "loyal maid" Maria to disguise as a "Spanish noble woman" but she falls for one of their other guests and everything gets a little wacky after that. The full cast includes Rossy de Palma, Michael Smiley, Tom Hughes, Violaine Gillibert, Stanislas Merhar, and Sue Cann. This looks totally kooky and entertaining, almost like a French mix between Dinner for Schmucks and Beatriz at Dinner (with Salma Hayek). Seems like it'll be fun to watch,

Stx To Distribute Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ After All With China Deal: The Crazy Backstory

Exclusive: Stx Entertainment will distribute Martin Scorsese’s and Netflix’s The Irishman after all. In China, along with Media Asia. The agreement came as part of a negotiated deal that happened months ago with Netflix after a brouhaha that occurred with distribution rights on the high-profile mob movie that teams Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and others for the first time. In Cannes two years ago, Stx slapped down a record-breaking $50 million to…

The Border

Tony Richardson’s look at corruption in the border patrol service is both sensational and insightful, and Jack Nicholson gives a committed performance as a downtrodden functionary who finds himself in a major moral and humanitarian catastrophe. The problem is still there today, with no consensus on the right diagnosis or solution. The action melodrama costars Harvey Keitel & Valerie Perrine, and introduces (to the U.S.) the impressive Elpidia Carrillo.

Lies We Tell review – gangland romance lacks thrills despite its talented cast

Gabriel Byrne and Harvey Keitel star in a leaden drama hampered by a cheesy score

How a double-glazing salesman convinced Harvey Keitel to appear in his ‘Bradford noir’ movie

Despite some very talented actors doing their level best and lending what substance they can, this is a pretty leaden and unconvincing film, further hampered by a cheesy and intrusive musical score.

No less a figure than Harvey Keitel has a cameo as Demi, an ageing married businessman with a beautiful girlfriend, Amber (Sibilla Deen). When he dies suddenly, it is Demi’s faithful driver Donald, stolidly played by Gabriel Byrne, whose job it is to clear away any evidence of this illicit relationship. But in doing so he befriends Amber – as two lonely souls they are drawn together – and gets drawn into her fraught life, which involves a violently abusive ex-husband who, to Amber’s horror, is now about to

Film Review: ‘Lies We Tell’

Film Review: ‘Lies We Tell’
Gabriel Byrne moves pensively, wearily, through Mitu Misra’s “Lies We Tell,” as though through a much better film. For a time, as the doggedly loyal chauffeur and secret-keeper of a rich boss, dunking his dialogue into a comfy Northern England accent like a Custard Cream into a mug of tea, he almost convinces the audience, too. But very much to its detriment, Misra’s ambitious, overflowing soap opera of a debut is not content with being the character portrait that Byrne’s inherently interesting Donald deserves. It’s not even a particularly colored-in sketch of Amber (promising newcomer Sibylla Deen), the headstrong young Pakistani Muslim woman Donald befriends as she gets trapped between old-country tradition and mean-streets modernity in contemporary Bradford.

Instead the undeniably enthusiastic Indian-born, U.K.-raised Misra has the tourist-like, pent-up voracity of the first-time filmmaker. There’s a slew of racial, gender, and religious issues he needs to snapshot, a handful
