Penultimate Oscar predictions before the nominations are announced

18 January 2017 6:07 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s not far off. In less than a week now, the Academy Award nominations will be announced. Voting has come to an end, so the results basically have been tabulated. It’s just a waiting game at this point. Like an expectant parent, you’ll find me pacing around, a concerned look on my face. What will the Academy do? Will La La Land tied the record for most nominations by a single film? Will any other movie come close to matching that one’s total? Those questions and more are what I’m attempting to pin down. You’ll see what I’m predicting below, but just remember…these aren’t my final picks just yet. I know it’s only been a few days since the last update, but that’s the nature of the beast in this final week. What you’ll see below is a »

The Final Predictions Begin!

17 January 2017 6:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I've updated the Picture, Director, Screenplays, Actor and Supporting Actress charts with final predictions. Though many questions remain we must make the hard calls with nominations only a week away!

Best Picture & Best Director

The Best Picture race will literally never be "locked up" again so long as Oscar sticks with its "5 to 10" balloting math. That shifting number of Best Pictures means that you just never know. I want to say 8 again this year but what if its 5,6,7,9, or gulp 10. The big question mark, at least for this pundit, is Nocturnal Animals. Given that it's the movie that won't go away in precursor season with great showings at the Globes and BAFTA and significant buzz in Los Angeles despite its polarizing nature and its relatively low box office take (lower than All the other still buzzing pictures with the exception of Loving). The thing is you can't vote Against something. »

Is Viola in "Fences" a lead? Or is her "Rose" a supporting player by choice?

17 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Scarlett & Viola won the supporting & lead actress Tonys in 2010. Now Viola is headed for a supporting trophy (for the same role) by Lynn Lee

If it’s Oscar season, there must be category fraud lurking somewhere.  This year most of the debate has centered around Viola Davis, whose barn-burner of a performance opposite Denzel Washington in Fences is a virtual lock ...for supporting actress gold.  There’s little doubt the decision to go supporting was driven by the perception that lead actress would be a much tougher road in an especially competitive year.  Still, it’s such a powerhouse turn that many Viola fans are justifiably frustrated by what looks like a cynical lack of faith in both her and the Academy.

And yet, having previously read the play and seen it performed on stage – though not the production that starred Viola and Denzel – I can’t help wondering if »

17 January 2017 8:37 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’re closing in on the Oscar nominations, which arrive next week, and as Film Twitter and pundits debate and argue about which movies deserved merit or not, it’s easy to forget the struggle filmmakers go through just to get anything made. And the latest directors roundtable from THR reminds everybody that a film is a mere stop on a life-long journey for each moviemaker.

Mel Gibson (“Hacksaw Ridge”), Oliver Stone (“Snowden”), Damien Chazelle (“La La Land”), Mira Nair (“Queen Of Katwe”) and Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”) all swap stories from the battlefield of the set.

Watch: 1-Hour Directors Roundtable With Damien Chazelle, Barry Jenkins, Mel Gibson & More

17 January 2017 6:12 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s the heat of the awards season, so you know the drill. The Hollywood Reporter gets one too many moderators and misses out on a number of actual contenders for a certain award, but gathers whoever is easily available to discuss their craft in an extensive roundtable. The latest in this series is for the directors and although there’s no Denis Villeneuve, Martin Scorsese, Kenneth Lonergan, Jim Jarmusch, Mike Mills, Kelly Reichardt, Paul Verhoeven, etc. in sight, they have gathered a few of the top helmers of the year.

Most notably we have Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Damien Chazelle (La La Land), and Denzel Washington (Fences), who are joined by Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge), along with the directors of a few early fall releases that have all but been forgotten by now, Mira Nair (Queen of Katwe) and Oliver Stone (Snowden). They discuss when they first fell in love »

‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Ryan Reynolds (‘Deadpool’)

The Hollywood Reporter

“The movie is groundbreaking in a lot of ways,” asserts Ryan Reynolds of Deadpool, the blockbuster comic book adaptation released last February that he produced and stars in, as we sit down at the offices of The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the Awards Chatter podcast. “It usurps certain tropes of the superhero genre that were well-ready to be usurped. And, again, timing, timing, timing, you know? We were kind of at peak superhero, in terms of tone, and it just offered something completely different in that respect. It also had just an unabashed commitment to its R rating. As I look back — and hindsight is obviously 20/20, but — it knew what it was, and I always knew what it was. I knew exactly how to play this guy [the irreverent title character], and I felt, in some weird way — not to »

Potential snubs to consider in anticipation of the Academy Award nominations

16 January 2017 9:30 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As much as I’ve been spending the last few months (a full year, actually) really concentrating on who and what will be getting Oscar nominations, there’s another side to that coin. Namely, there’s always a few big snubs on nomination morning. The Academy Awards are notorious for random omissions, so next week will almost certainly be one or two. Today, I am going to be speculating on what those might be. Remember, these are just guesses on my part and there’s really no indicators that these will happen. For the moment, they’re just purely shots in the dark. We could be in for a morning filled with unexpected nominations, or perhaps a more conservative and widely predicted lineup. Anyway, let us now take a look at a handful of potential snubs that could be in the cards… Here are five big snubs to look out »

‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Vince Vaughn (‘Hacksaw Ridge’)

The Hollywood Reporter

“I think what happened to me after The Break-Up was I was kind of more ‘booking jobs’ and not working from that same catalyst of, ‘I really believe in this and we all want to make the same movie,'” acknowledges the actor Vince Vaughn as we sit down at the London West Hollywood hotel to discuss his career on The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Following a remarkable run of hit comedies in the early 2000s — among them, 2003’s Old School, 2004’s Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Starsky & Hutch and 2005’s Wedding Crashers — Vaughn had deliberately pivoted towards drama with the 2006 dramedy.

“But I didn’t follow through on it,” the 46-year-old says with unmistakable regret. Instead, he lost his way for a decade, during which he was humbled by critical and commercial disappointments — see Fred Claus »

AFI’s 2016 Video Almanac: Watch Hollywood’s Biggest Stars Explain Why Modern TV and Films Matter

14 January 2017 1:37 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As part of AFI’s 2016 Awards video almanac, the organization asked Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Amy Adams, Mel Gibson, Martin Scorsese, Denzel Washington and many other artists, what they’d like viewers to remember about their movies and TV shows, and why those projects matter now.

“I want people to just be inherently moved,” said “This is Us” star Mandy Moore. “I want them to be able to relate it back to their lives and the challenges and obstacles that they may have faced.”

Atlanta” creator and star Donald Glover thinks that movies and TV shows matter because, “It becomes sort of like a stamp of the times,” he stated. “Like this is what was happening and this is how people were feeling like in ‘old 2016.’”

Oscars 2017: Will #OscarsSoWhite End By Seeing Record Number of Non-White Wins in Acting Categories?

Managing Editor

After two years of criticism it seems as though the #OscarsSoWhite controversy could become a thing the past should all the stars align. That’s because there’s a big chance actors and actresses of color could win in three out of the four acting categories — with others scoring nominations. Not only is this a change from recent events, but it could potentially be the biggest breakthrough for minorities in the history of the Oscars.

The folks looking — and predicted by many critics — to score wins at the 2017 ceremony are two-time winner Denzel Washington (Fences) for best actor, former nominee Viola Davis (Fences) for best supporting actress, and Oscar newcomer Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for best supporting actor. Scott Feinberg of The Hollywood Reporter lists these three talents as frontrunners in their »

Oscar predictions for the new year: 2017

13 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Friday the 13th. Talk about the proper time to update some predictions, right? After the Golden Globes and the Directors Guild announcements, the race for Academy Award nominations is perhaps beginning to come into focus. With ballots being due today for the Oscars and only a few weeks to go before the nomination results are announced, this is when you really need to have a feel for the race. I do think I know more or less what’s going to happen, at least in broad strokes, but between now and then the updates will seek clarity. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again…it’s crunch time. What you’ll see below is more than a slight tinker, mainly taking into account the recent precursors. As such, there’s some small changes almost everywhere. Probably most notable is the upward mobility of Arrival and Lion, »

Sleepless Review

13 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Someday, when you least expect it, you’ll hear someone singing the praises of Sleepless. Not now, but once it inevitably enters syndication rotations on TBS or Fxx. That’s where this dad-thriller is destined to find glory – playing in the background during chores or between naps. In a theater, Baran bo Odar’s darkened kidnapping thriller charges forward like a billion other Taken wannabes before it. But without investment or attentive demand? You can come in-and-out of this Sleepless Night remake without being weighed down by the heavy generics that plod with sluggish commitment. That’s not meant to be a backhanded compliment, just a realistic assessment and expectation-setter.

Jamie Foxx stars as Vincent Downs, a dirty Vegas cop who gets tangled-up with the wrong underworld bosses. His partner, Sean Cass (T.I.), hears of a 25 kilo drug shipment coming in, so the two pull an off-hours smash-and-grab heist. Unfortunately, »
