Room | 2015 Tiff Review

Of One’s Own: Abrahamson Delivers Emotionally Potent Adaptation

Irish director Lenny Abrahamson continues his trajectory of unpredictable cinematic platforms with his latest film, Room, an adaptation of the bestselling 2010 novel from Emma Donoghue (here adapting her own source text for the screen). Though once again exploring dark psychological undercurrents with characters forced to undergo drastically juxtaposing realities, his latest is a tonally cohesive character study of a ripped-from-the-headlines scenario. Though eventually this cinematic treatment of survivor guilt and parental treatment isn’t quite as audacious as it sets out to be, as more or less related from a child’s perspective, it’s an emotionally resonant piece of work undoubtedly poised for awards glory at the end of the season thanks to its gratifying performances.

Jack (Jacob Tremblay) has just turned five years old and his mother Joy (Brie Larson) decides to bake him a cake. As they engage in their daily routines, »

“Room” wins the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival

21 September 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

During the afternoon yesterday, the Toronto International Film Festival gave out its prestigious Audience Award, often considered a harbinger for the Academy Awards. The winner at Tiff this year? Well, in a bit of an upset, it was none other than Room, the Lenny Abrahamson directed film that stars Brie Larson in a role that’s generated some major Oscar buzz. The inside word had big time award player Spotlight as the odds on favorite for the prize, but Room is what wound up taking it. As such, this is now a contender worth paying even more attention to than we were already. It’s a player, no doubt about it… For those who aren’t aware of this one, Room is an adaptation of the beloved novel by Emma Donoghue, who also penned the screenplay. It centers on a mother named Ma (played by Larson) and her young son »

Movie Stars Invade the Emmys

21 September 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

As evidenced over the past few years, television is no longer just a launching pad for prospective movie stars’ careers. On the contrary, many high-profile film actors have made the leap back to the small screen to take on roles that allow them to wholly flesh out characters and tackle meaty scenes that have become so much more prevalent in the TV landscape.

This migration has not gone unnoticed by the Emmy panelists, and many of those stars so well known for their work in film have garnered nominations (and wins) in the past few years. Last night’s 67th Annual Emmy Awards continued the trend and here’s how the big screen actors fared at the small screen award show.

Among the Oscar winning nominees at this year’s Emmys were Kevin Spacey (House of Cards), Kathy Bates (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Mel Brooks »

Emmy episode analysis: William H. Macy's epic hangover could win for 'Shameless''

17 September 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

TV's reigning SAG winner William H. Macy landed his second consecutive Emmy nomination in the Best Comedy Actor race this year for his booze-filled portrayal of deadbeat dad Frank Gallagher on "Shameless." The Showtime hit series may sometimes teeter the comedy/drama line, but in Macy's episode submission ("A Night To Remem - Wait, What?") we see that there is no shame, just laughs in the two-time Emmy winner's performance. -Break- Click here to see the updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions Synopsis Frank wakes up in a random spot of town in dirty, bird poop-covered clothes. He remembers that his insurance settlement is due in and when he goes to collect it he learns that he already had -- the night before. Frank begins the task of trying to retrace his steps after the epic bender to find what he did with his six-figure settlement. From buying the »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Comedy Series

17 September 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Many were worried before the nominations came out that Amazon didn't have a strong enough presence to get its breakout hit "Transparent" the attention it deserves. Now that Jill Soloway's dramedy has hauled in a hefty number of nods, the concern shifts to whether or not it can win. If it's a favorite anywhere, it's here. This marks the seventh Emmys nomination for Jeffrey Tambor, and his zero-for-six record should only improve his odds at taking home the trophy this year.  Read More: How Matt LeBlanc & 'Episodes' Got Us One More Season of 'Friends' Of course, he's not alone in the category when it comes to lacking wins. Matt LeBlanc is also zero for six at the Emmys, despite repeat nominations for "Friends" and "Episodes." Don Cheadle is zero for seven, including three straight losses for "House of Lies." William H. Macy won two Emmys in 2002 for "Door to Door, »
