3 February 2016 6:12 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Even after the recent results at the Producers Guild and Screen Actors Guild Awards have thrown this year's Oscar race into uncertainty, our forum posters are still fuming over snubs past and present. For instance, why was "Carol" left out of the Best Picture lineup this year when "The Kids Are All Right" made the cut in 2010? Was it homophobia or sexism? Both? Neither? -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions That's not all. They're also relitigating some of the most controversial results of the past 15 years.

Kim Basinger, Patron Saint of the Erotic Thriller, Joins Fifty Shades Darker

28 January 2016 3:17 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Kim Basinger is up there on Erotic-Thriller Mount Rushmore alongside Michael Douglas, Angie Everhart, and Mickey Rourke (Erotic-Thriller Mount Rushmore, if you're wondering, is made out of billowing smoke and '80s synths), and so, yes, duh, of course she was going to end up in the Fifty Shades movies. Variety reports that Basinger has signed on to play Elena Lincoln, the older woman who introduced Christian Grey to the shocking world of Bdsm when he was only 15. Transparent has already handled the realistic side of an abusive relationship like this, so we'll leave it to Fifty Shades to present the steamy side. »

Five of the Best Marvel Movie Acting Performances

28 January 2016 6:58 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Marvel movies have been some of the highest grossing blockbuster films in recent memory, starting with the first Iron Man film in 2008 and culminating in 2012’s The Avengers. Even since The Avengers, however, most of these actors who portray the superheroes and villains that we love to watch on the big screen have been giving it their all in second and even third installments of these Marvel movie franchises. Although all of the performers in each Marvel movie have been pretty stellar (well, aside from Mickey Rourke in Iron Man 2, but there was A Lot wrong in that

Film Review: ‘Mojave’

20 January 2016 2:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A burnt-out movie star and a violent drifter play a cat-and-mouse game that extends from the desert to the Hollywood Hills in “Mojave,” the second feature by William Monahan (“London Boulevard”), the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “The Departed.” Premise aside, however, the word “thriller” doesn’t apply to this comically affected piece of genre deconstruction, which seeks to re-create the existential drift of David Rabe’s “Hurlyburly” and Cormac McCarthy, but winds up hacking on their secondhand smoke. Pegged to a deeply unappealing performance by Garrett Hedlund, whose scuzzball chic recalls Mickey Rourke in his lean years, it’s the type of movie where two adversaries pause their fight-to-the-death to correct a George Bernard Shaw quote. Following a seven-week VOD run on DirecTV, the pic’s theatrical life stands to be mercifully brief.

“I’ve been famous in one way or another since I was 19,” mopes Tom (Hedlund) in the voiceover, »

Filming sex scenes: 13 directors and their approaches

Film directors and their crew discuss the techniques and approaches to capturing fruitiness on the big (and small) screen...

John Badham has written a couple of excellent books where he passed on advice about directing movies, and the lessons he's learned across his own career. In the latest, John Badham On Directing, he raises the spectre of filming sex scenes, and the problems that ensue.

Actors get really spooked when it comes to intimacy in a scene, even kissing", he wrote. "This is where the director has to be extremely patient with the actors and know that the emotional or intimate part of scenes don’t always shoot as easily as the production department thinks they should. The actors are not robots on a Toyota assembly line".

But just how do different filmmakers approach putting intimacy on film? In lots of different ways, is the answer...

‘Spotlight’ Wins Top Critics’ Choice Prize, Next Stop Oscar?

17 January 2016 7:58 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Critics’ Choice Awards are no “influencer” when it comes to the Academy Awards. Few things really are, despite the consistent obsession with what this or that “means” to the Oscar race. What they are, however, is a televised awards ceremony in the second phase of the season, and for a few years, the Broadcast Film Critics Assn., which puts on the event, took full advantage of that fact by airing the show on the day of the annual Oscar nominations announcement.

It made for an interesting opportunity, as it was the first red carpet Oscar nominees found themselves walking after getting the good news earlier that morning. It also provided an opportunity to speak to those results in some way, as “Argo” director Ben Affleck did three years ago, mere hours after being passed over for a best director nomination. “I’d like to thank the Academy,” he quipped »

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 1: #100-76

5 January 2016 4:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A new year means an opportunity to reflect on the past. This is our list of the 100 best films of the last 15 years, Part 1 #100 through 76.

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, »

Sherlock Holmes: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

1 January 2016 8:46 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

Over the past few years, the 5 Awesome And 5 That Sucked series has brought you classic and dire performances from such screen legends of wildly variable output as Nicolas Cage, Mickey Rourke or Michael Caine. There is another kind of film and TV hero, though, that has an equally hit-and-miss performance history to the iconic actor: the iconic character. Yes, just as one genius Cage performance leads straight on to one that is almost unimaginably awful, the same can be said of the progression from one Dracula or Robin Hood to the next.

Very few classic characters have appeared more often on screen than Sherlock Holmes and never has Baker Street’s great detective been more popular than right now. The last couple of years have given us interpretations of the deerstalker loving sleuth from Robert Downey Jr. and Ian McKellan on the big screen to Jonny Lee Miller and »
