Gff 2017: Hello, My Name is Doris Review

21 hours ago | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Steven Neish

It is often said that there is a distinct dearth of good roles for women over a certain age, and if that is indeed the case then it seems Sally Field must have won the jackpot when she signed on to play Doris. A lonely spinster living on Staten Island, having inherited the house she once shared with her dearly departed mother, Doris has taken to hoarding household objects in an attempt to mediate her loneliness and longing. She has a friend, Roz (Tyne Daly), but spends most of her time inputting data at a fashion company that doesn’t appreciate her and speaking to a therapist at the insistence of her brother’s family who want Doris to sell the house and split the inheritance.

That is, until John Fremont (Max Greenfield) steps into the elevator one morning and compliments her glasses. This small and seemingly »

22 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent Backstage news »

With screen-to-stage adaptations, boundary-pushing dramas, and revivals galore, the 2017 spring Broadway season promises to be star-studded, nostalgic, and exhilarating. Here are some of the shows we can’t wait to get in line to see. “Sunday in the Park With George” (opens Feb. 23)Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford return to light up Broadway with this revival of the Pulitzer Prize–winning Stephen Sondheim musical about painter Georges Seurat. Sarna Lapine, whose uncle James Lapine wrote the book, helms a mere 10-week run—catch it while you can. “Significant Other” (opens March 2)Fresh from an acclaimed Off-Broadway run at Roundabout Theatre Company, Joshua Harmon’s sharp look at a gay bachelor’s search for love is bringing its humor, heart, and honesty to Broadway with most of its original cast (including Gideon Glick, Barbara Barrie, and Lindsay Mendez) and director (Trip Cullman) returning. “The Glass Menagerie” (opens March 9)Tennessee Williams’ landmark »

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on, audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

Richard Schickel, Influential Time Magazine Film Critic, Dies at 84

19 February 2017 5:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Schickel, the longtime film critic for Time magazine who also wrote 37 books, mostly on film, and directed a number of documentaries on film subjects, died on Saturday in Los Angeles of complications from a series of strokes, his family told the Los Angeles Times. He was 84.

“He was one of the fathers of American film criticism,” his daughter, writer Erika Schickel, told the Times. “He had a singular voice. When he wrote or spoke, he had an old-fashioned way of turning a phrase. He was blunt and succinct both on the page and in life.”

He wrote and/or directed more than 30 documentaries, mostly for television.

Schickel shared a 1977 Emmy nomination for the documentary “Life Goes to the Movies” and received two nominations in 1987 for the documentary “Minnelli on Minnelli: Liza Remembers Vincente,” which he directed.

Schickel wrote film reviews for Life magazine from 1965 until the magazine folded in »

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

The dark arts of poster billing

19 February 2017 4:07 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brendon Connelly Feb 23, 2017

Working out what stars go in what order on a movie poster is quite a job. And causes many, many arguments...

Billing can be important to an actor's career. Arguably, it's more important to their ego. Most of all, though, it's cross-eyed dead crucial to their agent. The order in which actor's names appear on a poster might be contested as if it's a matter of life or death. It's no exaggeration to say that people have been sent to the electric chair with less wrangling or dispute than a handful of movie star names have been splashed onto a poster.

To be 'top of the bill' originally meant, literally, that your name is at the top of the bill – i.e. the poster. In variety theatre or music hall terms, this implies that you would take the stage last of all, the big attraction that the »

“On the one hand they are extremely close to me, and on the other hand they have nothing to do with me,” the actress Isabelle Huppert says of the many characters that she’s played, as we sit down at the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The Frenchwoman — an Oscar nominee for the first time, at the age of 63, for her portrayal of a rape survivor in Paul Verhoeven‘s 2016 French-language drama Elle — continues, “I have nothing to do with this woman from Elle who runs a video game company — I don’t even know myself how to work my computer — so I’m completely far from the character. I’m not a philosophy teacher [as in Things to Come, her other 2016 film], I never killed my father or my mother [as in 1978’s Violette], so I have »

“I could not have had a happier place to go when I wasn’t in the midst of the tsunami — the wonderful tsunami — that was Hamilton,” says the actor/playwright/composer/songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda of writing seven original songs for the Disney animated film Moana while simultaneously appearing in the biggest Broadway phenomenon in history. Hamilton, which Miranda created and starred in through last July, won 11 Tony Awards, two of which went to him personally, as did a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ and a Grammy Award. For Moana, meanwhile, he is nominated for the best original song Oscar, for his song “How Far I’ll Go” — and if he wins, he will become only the 13th — and, at just 36, the youngest — Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner) in history.

“It was an experience of collaboration like I’d never had before,” says the actress Emma Stone of the making of La La Land as we sit down at Santa Barbara’s Biltmore Hotel to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The 28-year-old won the best actress SAG Award and is nominated for the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Mia, a struggling young actress in love with Ryan Gosling‘s struggling young musician Sebastian, in Damien Chazelle‘s original musical — one of a record-tying 14 nominations bestowed upon it by the Academy — which hits home for her as much as anyone. “I do understand a lot of what Mia’s going through,” she says, noting that reading Chazelle’s script for the first time both “lifted me up and broke my heart. »

Saluting the Movie Heroes of 2016 That Were Snubbed by Oscars

9 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Academy Award winners are announced Feb. 26, about four-fifths of the contenders will go home empty-handed. Though they might feel bad for a while, they’ll always be identified as Oscar nominees. But what about all those people who turned in great work and didn’t even get that far?

As the long Oscar season winds down, let’s give a salute to a few un-nominated heroes of 2016. That list ranges from Clint Eastwood to Taraji P. Henson, from Pablo Larraín to Ralph Fiennes.

Take Stephen Frears. When “Florence Foster Jenkins” opened, there was appropriate buzz about the performances and the design work, but almost none fSor him. Frears takes tricky material and succeeds, but maybe he makes it look too easy.

In the four acting races, everyone nominated deserves to be there. But with only five slots, there are also other deserving people. Aside from Amy Adams in “Arrival, »

My Favorite Scene: Past and Current Producers Look Back on ‘Law & Order: Svu’

8 February 2017 9:18 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell Et all about getting to see their most cherished moment on their series make it from script to screen.

On Wednesday, Feb. 8, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit will reach a major TV milestone when it airs its 400th episode, a feat only previously achieved by eight scripted series over the past four decades. While a lot of credit for the show’s success and stamina is given to the cast led by Mariska Hargitay, who has won an Emmy for playing Det. Olivia Benson, it’s hard to ignore the writing, which has earned several Edgar Allen Poe Award nominations over the course of its run.

“What I hadn’t done before [Slumdog] was properly struggle,” Patel says, “and in-between that film and this film, »

Moments That Changed the Course of Oscar

6 February 2017 1:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When people talk about memorable Oscar moments, they usually mention the streaker, Sacheen Littlefeather, Sally Field, or Cuba Gooding Jr. But there is another gauge for Academy Awards events: significant moments that helped shape the awards DNA that we see today. Many of these moments occurred off-camera, but their effect is long-lasting.

Darryl F. Zanuck

The first ceremony was held May 16, 1929, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, three months after winners had been announced. Like high-school graduates getting diplomas, winners silently went to the stage, accepted the trophy, then sat down; honorable mentions did the same, receiving certificates. Warner Bros. was given an award for “The Jazz Singer,” the only talkie honored. Accepting the trophy, Zanuck did something radical: He said a few words of praise for the WB team. And thus the acceptance speech was born.


The ceremony was first broadcast March 19, 1953, on NBC. The Variety review the next »

There ought to be a place on a screen for every kind of film story. True, old movies fronted a mostly false consensus picture of the world, claiming that there was a ‘normal’ baseline for our lives. The reality of most social issues was ignored in favor of pleasant fairy tales where all conflicts could be solved on a personal level. After all, movies were considered entertainment first, and carriers of vital social truths maybe about 97th. But then and now, there »

Newswire: Update: A celebrity-filled anti-Trump rally is streaming on Facebook right now

19 January 2017 3:46 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

With Donald Trump holding a pre-inauguration concert in Washington D.C. tonight that is sparsely attended by celebrities (and maybe in general), a bunch of those famous people that Trump supposedly doesn’t care about have popped up in New York City outside of the Trump International Hotel for an anti-Trump rally. According to, the attendees include Sally Field, Mark Ruffalo, Rosie Perez, Alec Baldwin, Marisa Tomei, Julianne Moore, Cynthia Nixon, Natalie Merchant, Michael Moore, and Shailene Woodley. Robert De Niro was doing a slick, stand-up routine of sorts a few minutes ago, and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio just finished making a passionate plea for upholding the Affordable Care Act.

This is one of many anti-Trump events happening this week, with a number of pro-women’s rights marches scheduled across the country on Saturday.

Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

17 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.
