5 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Casey Affleck has won the Best Male Lead at the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards for his starring role in Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester By the Sea.” In accepting the award Affleck decided to get political for the first time in one of his many speeches this award season.

“The policies of this administration are abhorrent and they will not last,” said Affleck, who applauded the many people in the room for having used their voices to speak up.  

Affleck was admittedly not comfortable getting political on stage, saying beforehand that he knows this is something better whispered to himself in the bathroom.  He also quoted Marian Edelman, founder of the Children’s Defense Fund and mother of Ezra Edelman the director of “Oj: Made in America.”

Omg! Oscars, Muriels and Gelderblom’S “Pretty Messed Up”!

9 hours ago | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

So, going into the final stretch before the Oscars are announced, I have a question: if you like—no, love this year’s front-running La La Land, does that make you a bad person, or just deluded? Don’t laugh—there may be people at your own Oscar party who will have already come to their own conclusion on that conundrum. This year’s presumptive favorite is so presumptive that people are talking about the film as if it had already won and are projecting as to whether it’s an enduring classic or just another meh-fest to be thrown on the mediocrity pile along with Crash, Chicago, Argo, The Artist and about half of the rest of Oscar’s Best Picture winners since the Academy started handing out awards at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 1929. It is hard to deny, no matter how much you like or dislike La La Land, »

9 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 89th Academy Awards are almost here, and with it come several opportunities for history to be made. Some chances may be long shots (how awesome it would be if Bradford Young won Best Cinematography), but others are as close to sure things (Damien Chazelle and Barry Jenkins would both make history as Best Director winners).

Below are six ways this year’s Oscars could make history. The ceremony, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, airs Sunday evening at 8:30pm Et on ABC.

La La Land” is only Damien Chazelle’s third feature behind the camera, and he seems destined to take home the Oscar for Best Director. At only 32 years old, the filmmaker would become the youngest director in history to win the gold. The current record holder is Norman Rae Taurog, »

Renée Zellweger Salutes Longtime Publicist Nanci Ryder, Who Is Battling Als

9 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Renée Zellweger gave a touching speech at the 54th annual Icg Publicists Awards Luncheon on Friday, where her longtime publicist Nanci Ryder — who has been battling Als since 2014 — was honored with the President’s Award.

Ryder represented numerous A-list clients during her 30-year-plus career as a founder of Bwr Public Relations — including Zellweger, Reese Witherspoon, Michael J. FoxJennifer GarnerLeonardo DiCaprio and Courteney Cox.

But her 2014 diagnosis was precipitated by ongoing vocal issues and as the neurological illness progressed, Ryder’s speech continued to deteriorate. By 2015, Ryder had lost her ability to speak and began using a gastrostomy feeding »

'Fences' Behind-the-Scenes Clip Is All About Giving 110%

24 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Directing is hard. Talking about it in such simple terms almost doesn't do justice to the difficulty of the job. The amount of things you need to keep track of and pay attention to is staggering. Every single department on set, from sound to costumes to cinematography, is looking to you for a final answer. Now imagine not only having to spin all of those plates behind the camera, but then step in front of it to act as well. That's why even when actors transition to directing, they often avoid also casting themselves as the lead actor. Denzel Washington, however, decided he was up to that challenge with his directorial debut, Fences. So where did the confidence to pull it off come from? As Washington says in the behind-the-scenes clip below, the reason he knew he could...

‘Deadpool,’ ‘This Is Us’ Win Publicist Campaign Awards

24 February 2017 2:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Deadpool” and “This Is Us” have won the top awards from the Publicists Guild for last year’s best publicity campaigns.

Fox’s “Deadpool” topped “Sausage Party,” “The Secret Life of Pets,” “The Jungle Book” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” for the Maxwell Weinberg publicist showmanship motion picture award. “Deadpool” was a massive surprise hit with more than $700 million in worldwide grosses and a campaign that stressed Ryan Reynolds’ foul-mouthed comic performance — along with lying on a bearskin rug.

Why Viola Davis’ Oscar Win Would Be Another Sign of Hollywood’s Gender Bias

24 February 2017 2:52 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Everybody expects Viola Davis to win an Oscar for “Fences” on Sunday night at the Dolby Theatre, but does she really deserve it? I’m not saying Davis isn’t awards-worthy — after all, she won the Tony Award for playing the same role of Rose, the long-suffering wife of embittered former Negro league ballplayer Troy Maxson, in the 2010 Broadway revival of August Wilson’s powerhouse play. Her performance is raw and fierce, standing toe-to-toe with Denzel Washington’s Troy and serving as the vibrant, beating heart of the film. The problem isn’t with the performance. It’s with the category: Best Supporting Actress. »

9 Oscars Winners Who Don't Hold Up to the Test of Time

24 February 2017 2:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Just because a movie or a celebrity wins an Oscar, that doesn't mean the win was deserved. While the Academy Awards are seen as the capstone to awards season -- and one of the highest honors in the business -- we all know that stars and movies get snubbed or overlooked all the time.

What's worse is when we look back at what did win, and shake our heads in confusion and disbelief. So, with the 89th Academy Awards just around the corner, let's take a look back over the show's illustrious history at a few times the Academy voters clearly made a mistake.

Kids All Dressed Up and Posing as the Best Picture Nominees Posters Is the Cutest Thing You’ll See Today

24 February 2017 1:53 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sure, most of this year’s Best Picture nominees are rated PG-13 or higher, but that doesn’t mean they’re totally off-limits for kids.

For the seventh year in a row, Chicago mom-of-three Maggie Storino dressed her daughters up and photographed them as the posters for all nine Best Picture nominees, styling them like Emma Stone, Denzel Washington, Andrew Garfield and every featured A-lister in between. The resulting images — documented on Storino’s website Don’t Call Me Oscar — are all winners.

“The girls anticipate Oscar season like it’s a holiday,” Storino told Vanity Fair of daughters Sophia, »

Just How Many Black Actors Have Won an Oscar? The Number Is Disturbingly Low

24 February 2017 1:25 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Lee Celano With nominees like Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Ruth Negga, and Mahershala Ali rounding out the acting categories, Sunday night's Academy Awards could potentially deliver the most diverse set of winners in years. The Oscars have been plagued by obvious race issues since they began in 1929, and things seemingly came to a head with the #OscarsSoWhite discussion a couple of years ago; the overwhelming lack of diversity in nominees in both 2015 and 2016 resulted in Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs taking bigger, more noticeable steps to double the number of diverse members in its voting body by 2020. Nevertheless, a black actor (the incomparable Sidney Poitier) wasn't awarded until 1964, and it was only in 2002 that Halle Berry became the first black woman to win a best actress trophy. So, just how many black actors have won Oscars over the years? Fourteen. A whopping fourteen distinguished, talented people in 87 years. »

Film Club: Does Casey Affleck still stand a chance at the Oscars?

24 February 2017 1:21 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The 89th annual Academy Awards are this Sunday, and to celebrate the end of another long awards season, The A.V. Club has been sitting down every day this week to discuss the major Oscar categories, offering thoughts of who will win and who should. For much of 2016, Casey Affleck was seen as the sure-fire Best Actor winner for his affecting role in Manchester By The Sea. But a lack of momentum in precursor awards has given Denzel Washington’s turn in Fences a narrow lead in the office betting pools of the world. »

Meryl Streep Is the Queen of Award Season, and She Has the Gold to Prove It

24 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Meryl Streep was honored with the coveted Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globe Awards this year. The annual award is given for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment," and past recipients include George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, and Morgan Freeman. It comes as no surprise that Streep was chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association as this year's recipient given the fact that she has been working in Hollywood for over 30 years, has an impressive award history, and has taken on a plethora of roles, including Joanna Kramer in 1979's Kramer vs. Kramer and Miranda Priestly in 2006's The Devil Wears Prada. Not to mention, Streep also holds a total of 30 Golden Globe nominations, making her the most nominated star in the show's history. In honor of her accomplishments (including her 2017 Oscar nomination!), we're taking a look at all the gold Streep has won over the years. »

Oscars 2017 by the Numbers

24 February 2017 12:12 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 89th Academy Awards take place this Sunday, a day expected to be dominated by awards darling “La La Land,” which has earned a record-tying 14 nominations. The Oscars have a long history of upsets and shocking moments though, so this weekend could have its share of surprises.

Coming on the heels of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, perhaps the most heartening aspect of 2017’s “Oscar numbers” are that they suggest a more promising year for people of color. Black actors were shut out of the acting categories the last two years in a row.

Here are a few of the many compelling statistics about this year’s Oscars, courtesy of personal finance website WalletHub.

Who Should Win the 2017 Oscars? How Variety’s Critics Would Vote

24 February 2017 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The ballots are in, and the Oscars are but days away. Variety critics Peter Debruge, Owen Gleiberman, and Guy Lodge may not be Academy members, but if they were, here’s how they would have voted in the top eight categories.

Peter Debruge

Best Picture: “Moonlight.” Nothing against “La La Land,” whose realist take on contemporary romance brings a welcome edge to the fizzy old-fashioned song-and-dance format, but “Moonlight” marks the artistic breakthrough here — and not just because the Oscars (and the industry at large) have been #sowhite for #solong. Barry Jenkins’ superb portrait of a lonely young man seeking connection in Miami focuses audiences’ attention on the sort of character the movies so often marginalize — or overlook entirely — and makes the specificity of his experience feel universal. I ranked “Hell or High Water” one notch higher on my year-end top 10, but that movie is too similar to 2008 winner “No Country for Old Men »
