A Letter to Michael B. Jordan

3 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Dear Michael B. Jordan, You don’t need another critic to tell you what a phenomenal screen actor you are, quietly projecting humanity and humor. In "Fruitvale Station" and "Creed" you show how every man contains multitudes. Even in feather-light piffle like "That Awkward Moment," you find the gravity of your character. You don’t need another admirer to pile on that “you were robbed” by an Academy that failed to cite your performance as Oscar Grant in "Fruitvale Station" and Adonis Creed in "Creed." In part it’s an #OscarsSoWhite thing. And in part it’s something else entirely. This other factor puts you in the excellent company of Paul Newman, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker. The statuette is not always an Academy Award for best performance. Sometimes it’s recognition of one that was overlooked. Other times, it’s a tribute to an entire career, and »

Sylvester Stallone Says ‘Creed’ Feels Like Rocky Balboa’s Last Ride

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — Oscar-nominated “Creed” star Sylvester Stallone stopped by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival Tuesday night for one of the week’s many tributes and to accept the Montecito Award from friend and “Rocky” co-star Carl Weathers. When prompted about a sequel to Ryan Coogler’s fresh take on the material, however, he seemed quite reticent, perhaps concerned about diminishing returns or souring such a storybook experience.

“I really have mixed feelings about this, seriously,” he said. “I feel like Rocky, at the end of this movie on the steps, with the help of a young man, and he looks out and says, ‘From here, you can see your whole life’ — it sort of summarizes the whole thing. I don’t know how much further you can push Rocky.”

Ostensibly a career retrospective, the program still never strayed too far from the Balboa narrative, a full-circle experience for »

Sylvester Stallone Almost Boycotted Oscars Ceremony

9 February 2016 6:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Like his on-screen persona, Rocky, Sylvester Stallone is ready to fight — for diversity.

The 69-year-old "Creed" actor, who is nominated in the supporting category at the Oscars this year, told reporters at yesterday's Academy Awards luncheon that he was ready to boycott the ceremony. This year's awards have been mired in controversy over the lack of nominees of color, and generated the #OscarsSoWhite social media campaign. Stallone considered boycotting in solidarity with "Creed" director Ryan Coogler and star Michael B. Jordan, neither of whom were nominated.

"I remember I spoke with Ryan Coogler when this happened. I said, 'Ryan, how do you want to handle this? Because I really believe you are responsible for me being here,'" he said.

"I said, 'If you want me to go, I'll go. If you don't, I won't.' "He said, 'No, I want you to go.' That's the kind of guy he is. »

Michael B. Jordan Wins 2 Image Awards, as Well as Our Hearts

9 February 2016 | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The weekend started on a great note for Michael B. Jordan! The actor was on hand for the NAACP Image Awards in La on Friday and took home two coveted honors: entertainer of the year and outstanding actor in a motion picture for his performance in Creed. Michael, who was just one of the handsome men to hit the red carpet for the ceremony, gave a heartfelt speech to the crowd, saying, "I used to sneak into the Image Awards, and now I'm standing here as the entertainer of the year, which is mind-blowing." Michael had the support of his Creed costar Sylvester Stallone, who presented an award on stage. Sly took some heat last month at the Golden Globes when he forgot to thank Michael and director Ryan Coogler, and later that night, Michael took to Instagram and uploaded a short video, saying he knew "exactly how @officialslystallone felt after the Globes. »

Sylvester Stallone Considered Boycotting This Year’s Oscars Ceremony

8 February 2016 11:13 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sylvester Stallone might have forgotten to thank Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler during his Golden Globe speech, but he gave his Creed co-star and helmer nothing but praise during a Monday Oscar nominee luncheon. The 69-year-old actor revealed he even considered boycotting the Academy Awards out of respect for them, despite the fact that his return as Rocky Balboa has netted him his first Oscar shot in nearly 40 years. "I remember I spoke with Ryan Coogler when [the nominee fallout] happened," Stallone explained at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. "I said, 'Ryan how do you want to handle this? Because I really believe that you are responsible for me being here.' Michael Jordan, every time, I looked into his eyes as an actor, I said, 'He is making me better.' I think he should have been given a lot more respect and a lot more attention. And [Coogler] said, »

This year’s Oscar show “will be the most diverse ever,” producer David Hill told Variety on Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon. Despite the lack of acting nominees of color — which the Academy has no control over — Hill and fellow Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin have been working since September to make sure the Oscars “will have true diversity and will represent what the world looks like.”

The remarks were made at the 35th annual event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Hudlin said that an Oscar nomination is “an amazing moment in the life of any nominee,” and that the lunch is intended to celebrate their accomplishments.

They agreed that it’s crucial for the entire film industry to attain inclusion, but there is also room to celebrate the great film work of 2015, which been somewhat overshadowed in the past month. Or, as Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences »
