London — Chiwetel Ejiofor will be honored at the British Independent Film Awards on Dec. 6. He will receive the Richard Harris Award, which recognizes an outstanding contribution to British film by an actor.
Jared Harris, Harris’ son, commented: “Although the recipients of this award have all been embraced by the establishment, they all came from outside it, fought their way in on the strength of their talent, claimed their place and changed the status quo: a journey that describes Chiwetel’s career perfectly. His talent is immense, it has brought him deserved worldwide recognition, and he is in his prime.”

“I am so happy this award is going to Chiwetel,” said Jared Harris, son of Richard Harris. “Although the recipients of this award have all been embraced by the establishment, they all came from outside it, fought their way in on the strength of their talent, claimed their place and changed the status quo. A journey which describes Chiwetel’s career perfectly. His talent is immense, it has brought him deserved worldwide recognition, and he is in his prime! I hope this award inspires British filmmakers to take advantage of him and build films around his talent.”

Ten years ago right about now Reese & Joaquin took the stage in movie theaters with a full sung duet as June and Johnny Cash. Both were Oscar-nominated for their ringed fire as tempestuous country superstar marrieds with Reese going on to win in a strangely non competitive Best Actress year. His & Hers Oscar nominations for lively onscreen marriages aren't anything new of course but they also aren't dependable since one of the partners is often foregrounded while the other is window dressing or is equally brilliant but just not nominated.
But of the ten double nominees who did it best in the intervening years? (I included the divorced couples just to up the numbers). You decide. To make this more exciting, judge the performances Fused. Who wins your vote then? These are your ten options

The transformation of Nick Hornby from one of the major literary pioneers with a sort of sensitive Generation X masculinity (as with “Fever Pitch,” “High Fidelity” and “About A Boy”), to an Oscar-nominated screenwriter with particularly well-drawn female leads, is a fascinating one. Hornby made his screenwriting transition and picked up an Oscar nod, with “An Education” a few years back, and followed it up with last year’s “Wild,” before this year’s much-acclaimed “Brooklyn,” which seems all-but-certain to throw him into awards chat again.

British actress Charlotte Rampling has been appearing on film for five decades. Over the course of her 50-year career, Rampling has solidified her iconic status, yet the 69-year-old actress has never been nominated for an Oscar. This year, however, she may have her best shot in the romantic drama 45 Years.
Rampling’s performance as a wife whose 45th wedding anniversary is disrupted by a potential life-changing letter from an unexpected sender earned her the Silver Bear award for best actress at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival. Rampling’s costar, Tom Courtenay, also won the Silver Bear and the film itself was nominated for the Golden Bear.
This is far from Rampling’s first appearance in a film that has received love from critics and awards voters, as the star’s career features several occasions in which her films garnered Oscar attention but Rampling herself was left out. »

The film Suffragette focuses on women’s fight for the vote in early 20th century Britain. While that fight was led by Emmeline Pankhurst, played by Meryl Streep, who was a member of the upper class, the film really focuses on an ordinary working woman who risked all for this right, a role played by Carey Mulligan.
Mulligan recently spoke by phone with a group of journalists about the film, her role and the fight for women’s rights nearly a century on. All interview questions have been pooled and the interview has been edited for length and clarity.
Movie Geeks: “It takes a lot of courage for Maude (Mulligan’s character) to become so invested in the suffragette movement considering she goes from a housewife to, essentially, a kind of rebel. What was it like portraying that part?”
Carey Mulligan: “That was the sort of »

As mentioned yesterday, a few months ago I took a look at contenders in the 2015 Oscar race who have previously been nominated for Academy Awards but yet to take home the gold. It was a fairly speculative couple of pieces, but now that the season is beginning to separate the contenders from the pretenders, I wanted to look again at some of the more realistic names in the running for Oscar gold, this time looking at actors and actress. These are all players who have been nominated previously but yet to win anything, so if they were to emerge victorious this year, it would be their first times on the big stage. As a reminder the 16 names cited (including six honorable mentions) were Joan Allen, Helena Bonham Carter, Jessica Chastain, Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Johnny Depp, Bruce Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Ralph Fiennes, Diane Lane, Laura Linney, Carey Mulligan, »

With parts harvested from history, fiction, and film, this Frankie follows in the footsteps of Sky’s Penny Dreadful and ITV’s recent Jekyll And Hyde – so far, so 'TV Execs are still mid-ransack over at the Waterstones’* Gothic fiction aisles' – but what has this show got in abundance that those others were lacking?
