Mining value from an Oscar win

1 hour ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar win has thrown a new potential star into the ring as players in the independent space hustle to package films for Cannes and beyond.

Sales agents have long bemoaned the small pool of marketable talent that can galvanise pre-sales and represent value around the world.

The British actor’s Oscar coronation last Sunday for his lead role in The Theory Of Everything offers an opportunity to broaden the range of available star power in non-studio projects.

Indeed Redmayne and Oscar nominee and Birdman star Michael Keaton were on almost every talent list scrutinised by sales agents in the run-up to the Efm in Berlin.

Now every sales agent in the business will be approaching Redmayne’s representatives to see if he would be suited to whichever projects they may be sizing up.

Just as agents often demand higher salaries for clients who taste success at the Oscars, so sales agents »

Sales agents have long bemoaned the small pool of marketable talent that can galvanise pre-sales and represent value around the world.

The British actor’s Oscar coronation last Sunday for his lead role in The Theory Of Everything offers an opportunity to boost the available star power of desirable acting talent in non-studio projects.

Indeed Redmayne and Oscar nominee and Birdman star Michael Keaton were on almost every talent list scrutinised by sales agents in the run-up to the Efm in Berlin.

24 February 2015 2:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "uvJ1K3Gl0r8"] On Sunday night Jimmy Kimmel hosted his 10th annual After the Oscars special, and the star-power was certainly worthy of the occasion - but, thanks to a new outtakes reel, we now know that so were the bloopers. Kimmel's original two-part sketch, "The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting," featured 2015 Best Actor winner Eddie Redmayne alongside former winners Jeff Bridges and Sean Penn, plus other A-listers Jennifer Aniston, Lupita N'yongo, Matt Damon, Gary, Mila Kunis, Susan Sarandon,Emily Blunt, John Krasinski and Kristen Bell - all of whom subjected themselves to ruthless acting master Jim Kimmel.

Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘School of Perfect Acting’ Outtakes as Funny as Sketch Itself (Video)

24 February 2015 7:46 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jimmy Kimmel showed his audience bloopers from Sunday’s post-Oscars sketch “The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting” on Monday, and the outtakes proved to be as entertaining as the segment itself. While Kimmel did his best to play a perfectionist acting coach who pushes his A-list students to their breaking points, Oscar winner Jeff Bridges instructed the team on the subtle art of the “John Wayne skull take.” Next, “The Office” star John Krasinksi and his wife, “Into the Woods” star Emily Blunt, couldn’t keep a straight face while unsuccessfully attempting to breathe their lines into each other’s mouth. »

Jimmy Kimmel Transforms Into Eccentric Acting Coach, Hilariously Berates Eddie, Mila & More!

23 February 2015 9:15 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

You might not want to hire Jimmy Kimmel as your acting coach! The comedian channeled his inner teacher for Sunday's Oscar special of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," where he helped school some of Hollywood's biggest stars. Check out the video above to see the hilarious acting advice Kimmel dishes to Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Comberbatch, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Aniston, Jeff Bridges, Susan Sarandon, Kristen Bell and more!  We love when Kimmel lashes out at the "Theory of Everything" star for his terrible British accent, calls Bell a "Muppet Baby" and lets Aniston fall completely on her backside during one of his "distrust fall" exercises. In the second part of the skit, Sean Penn gets a brutal beating as he practices a monologue for Jimmy ... with Kimmel repeatedly smacking him in the head with a pool noodle every time he gets a line wrong. "His methods are a bit severe," Penn says in the clip. »

How Did All These Stars Keep Straight Faces in Jimmy Kimmel's Post-Oscars Skit?

23 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Every year, Jimmy Kimmel airs a silly video on his show after the Oscars, and this time around, he enlisted more celebrities than ever. "The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting" features the host as the world's most pretentious acting coach. "Every moment in which you aren't acting is a moment that you are dying," Kimmel declares in the segment. Benedict Cumberbatch, Lupita Nyong'o, Eddie Redmayne, Jeff Bridges, Susan Sarandon, and Jennifer Aniston all make ridiculous cameos, but no one is as over-the-top as Kimmel. He literally makes Gary Oldman act his way out of a paper bag, and he tells Kristen Bell that Frozen is "sh*t." Watch part two, starring Sean Penn, Matt "Damen," John Krasinski, and Emily Blunt. »

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Haze Matt Damon, Sean Penn at 'School of Perfect Acting'

23 February 2015 6:35 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s post-Oscar specials usually feature a star-studded fake movie trailer, like Movie: The Movie, but this year, the late-night host switched things up by recruiting A-listers like Jeff Bridges, Lupita Nyong'o and Matt Damon (or Damen, as it's spelled) to enroll in "The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting." For the sketch, the host portrays "Jim Kimmel," a Whiplash-ian teacher of the performing arts with the reputation of being "the greatest, most prolific and revered acting coach who ever lived."

Jimmy Kimmel Coached Eddie Redmayne, Jennifer Aniston at His Perfect Acting School

22 February 2015 11:49 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After the Academy Awards wrapped, Jimmy Kimmel kept the fun (or disdain) going on ABC with his tenth annual post-Oscars show. In this faux tribute, which features Benedict Cumberbatch, Lupita Nyong'o, Harvey Weinstein, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Jeff Bridges, Kristen Bell, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Aniston, and Gary Oldman, the late-night host dressed a lot like his good friend Kanye, repped an absurd school, and showed everyone how to whittle quality performances out of A-league stars. Yes, it has a website (kind of) and definitely calls to mind the Whitlock Academy. For what it's worth, Redmayne wins in this, too. »

June Fairchild, Actress Who Lived on Skid Row, Dies at 68

19 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

June Fairchild, an actress whose show business story was as strange - and often, as tragic - as any in Hollywood, has died at 68. Fairchild passed away Tuesday at a convalescent home in Los Angeles from liver cancer, the Los Angeles Times reports. While not a household name, Fairchild rose quickly in Hollywood early in her career, earning numerous small parts and sharing the screen with the likes of Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges in 1974's Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, directed by Jack Nicholson. (See one of the movie's scenes here - Fairchild plays Gloria.) She was also known for a »

Best Actress: It's finally time for Julianne Moore to walk that aisle

18 February 2015 10:22 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Boogie Nights." "The End of the Affair." "The Hours." "Far from Heaven." And those were just the four times Julianne Moore found herself in the race. "Safe." "The Big Lebowski." "Magnolia." "The Shipping News." "Children of Men." "A Single Man." "Maps to the Stars." She's been turning out great work for years and now, finally, it looks like she's going to be an Oscar winner. You can debate whether her work outshines the film "Still Alice," and whether the category needed to be as generally weak as it is this year for her to finally get there. But why pick it to pieces? Every year is different, every set of circumstances is unique, and the stars are finally aligning for her. Embrace it. And by the way, she's pretty outstanding in the film, breaking your heart as a woman succumbing to early on-set Alzheimer's disease. Whoever picked this film up »

Julianne Moore Could Be 11th Actor With Five or More Acting Noms Before First Oscar Win

18 February 2015 8:10 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

At Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, Julianne Moore could join the ranks of 10 actors and actresses who have had five or more acting nominations before their first win.

Moore earned her fifth nomination for her portrayal of a professor suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s in Still Alice, based on Lisa Genova‘s 2007 novel of the same name. She was first nominated in 1998 for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights.

In Academy history, five actors and actresses have won their first Oscar on their fifth nomination.

Gregory Peck, who was first nominated in 1946 for The Keys of the Kingdom, didn’t win until 1962 for To Kill a Mockingbird. Five years later, Peck was awarded The Academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.

Susan Hayward won her first and only Oscar in 1959 for her leading role in I Want to Live!. She was first nominated in 1948 for Smash-Up: The Story of a Woman. »

7 stars who won Oscars for the wrong movie: Kate Winslet, Martin Scorsese

18 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you haven't heard, there are a lot of reasons to get angry at the Oscars. In general, awarding a statuette to someone who actually deserves it isn't one of them.

But sometimes, a deserving nominee gets passed over so many times that they finally end up winning an award for something that's not their best work, in what amounts to a kind of unofficial lifetime achievement award.

Digital Spy looks back at seven times the Academy gave out the right award for the wrong movie.

Martin Scorsese (The Departed)

For decades, Scorsese was the most glaring example of an undisputed great who was somehow yet to win an Oscar. Despite being nominated a total of six times, beginning with Raging Bull in 1981, Scorsese was the perpetual bridesmaid and never the bride (a dubious honour he's since passed on to regular collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio).

The seventh time turned out »
