Bafta chief hails British films despite none making best film category

32 minutes ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Amanda Berry denies nominations for prestigious award – including The Revenant and Bridge of Spies – are American because Britain can’t compete

Some of the biggest names in British film, from Eddie Redmayne and Kate Winslet to Christian Bale and Michael Fassbender, will go head to head at the Baftas on Sunday evening.

However, this year none of the films nominated for outstanding British film – 45 Years, Amy, Brooklyn, The Danish Girl, Ex Machina and The Lobster – have made it into the best film category. Instead, all the nominees are American productions including The Big Short, Bridge of Spies, Carol, The Revenant and Spotlight.

'The Big Short' Co-Writer Thinks Casting Of Michael Fassbender In 'Steve Jobs' Was "Problematic"

8 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a few weeks, the awards season will be wrapped up, and time will start being the judge of those of won, the pictures that didn't make the grade, and those that perhaps should have. For me, I think "Steve Jobs" deserved a bit more love beyond the acting nods for Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet (Daniel Pemberton's score, for example, is pretty underrated, one of the better ones of the year). But there were many who had issues with Danny Boyle's movie, including those who wound up with Oscar nominations. Read More: The 20 Best Movies Of 2015 All the Best Screenplay nominees gathered together for a panel talk this week, and when asked what changes they would make the other Oscar nominated films by moderator Jeff Goldsmith, "The Big Short" co-writer, Charles Randolph, took a little jab at "Steve Jobs," which, notably, also missed a screenplay nod for Aaron Sorkin. »

12 Actors Nominated for an Oscar After 60

11 February 2016 2:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Oscar records are broken every year, especially among actors with many benchmarks relating to an actor’s age. In 2013, Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”) broke a new record becoming the oldest nominee in the lead actress category at 85. Meanwhile, Quvenzhané Wallis (“Beasts of the Southern Wild”) appeared alongside Riva as the youngest ever nominated at 9 years old. Here are some more record breakers featuring actors who received acting nominations after the age of 60! Gloria Stuart, “Titanic” (1997) (87 years, 221 days)Stuart holds the title as the oldest actor ever nominated for an Oscar. She received her single nomination in the supporting category at 87 for the James Cameron disaster epic, “Titanic.” Playing Rose DeWitt Bukater, Stuart narrates the film in the modern day detailing of her character’s experience and romance on the ship, as portrayed by Kate Winslet in flashbacks. Stuart ultimately lost the Oscar to Kim Basinger for “L.A. Confidential.” However, “Titanic »

“Zoolander 2″: Ten Movies to see in February

11 February 2016 1:56 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Folks, with the Academy Awards still a few weeks away, we can momentarily take a look at something else for the day. What is that, you may ask? Well, today is a look at what else movie theaters will have playing throughout this month, besides the obvious Oscar hopefuls. I do this every single month, as you all know by now, so of course I won’t exclude February. Much like with January, this month gets a reputation as one of the worst for new releases, and while that’s often been well founded, if you look closely enough this month you can find some very solid cinematic options. Consider this list another public service for those of you who have seen all of the Oscar contenders and nominees already. You might even find a gem or two amongst the junk… Here now are what I think the ten best »

Diane Ladd Blasts Studios’ ‘Greed and Corruption’ for Pushing Leading Roles as Supporting

11 February 2016 1:29 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features and the Weinstein Company were criticized this year for promoting Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) and Rooney Mara (“Carol”), respectively, in the supporting actress category when both performances were arguably leading ones. In the end, the dust-up didn’t harm the campaigns; both actresses received supporting nominations — much to the dismay of actress Diane Ladd.

At the Aarp Movies for Grownups Awards earlier this week, where the “Joy” star received the best supporting actress honor, Ladd blasted the “greed and corruption” of forcing leading players into the supporting ranks, pushing out performances like her own.

“I was really upset and chagrined by the studios’ greed and corruption,” Ladd said. “I mean Rooney Mara, she won best actress in Cannes. Three people are stars in leading roles. They are the female lead and the star. So why are they in the supporting category?”

It’s unclear which of the »

BAFTA’s British Categories Highlight Next Gen of Talent

11 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite the ever-increasing proximity between the Oscars and the British Academy of Film and Televison Arts awards, Bafta still remains a terrific reminder of the British brand. But the love in this year’s noms has been given to a host of veterans: Ridley Scott, Maggie Smith, Kate Winslet, Julie Walters and Mark Rylance have already notched up a collective 33 Bafta nominations. The British Academy Film Awards take place Feb. 14 at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London.

That’s not to say the fresh blood isn’t there, but perhaps increasing overlap in Oscar and Bafta conversations have limited the expectation for the Brit awards to serve as a platform for discovery.

“Since Bafta has repositioned itself very deliberately and positively to overlap with the Oscar conversation, the consequence has been that the opportunity to profile exciting or emerging talents has been limited,” says British Film Institute Film Fund director Ben Roberts. »

Exact Replica of Titanic Will Set Sail in 2018

11 February 2016 8:39 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

An exact replica of the Titanic, the ship that sank in the Atlantic Ocean after hitting an iceberg in 1912, will set sail in 2018. According to the Independent, the Titanic II will look identical to the original ship, although it will be 13 feet wider with an updated hull to meet modern maritime safety requirements. And like the original, the new Titanic, created by Australian businessman Clive Palmer and his company, Blue Star Line, will offer first, second and third class tickets.

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress

11 February 2016 6:16 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  Almost as confusing as its male counterpart (though not quite), best supporting actress seems like a wide open race at this point. Kate Winslet was always going to be a surefire nominee for her brilliant turn in "Steve Jobs," but even with her surprise Globe win, this category is far from a done deal. As expected, Alicia Vikander and Rooney Mara landed where their studios wanted them, and both have strong critical support and rising star power the Academy may take not of, especially because Winslet is an Oscar-winning veteran with no shortage of nominations to her name. The other two nominees, Jennifer Jason Leigh ("The Hateful Eight") and Rachel McAdams ("Spotlight"), fit effortlessly into their ensemble, though Leigh's ferocious turn has many pegging her as the category's ultimate victor. For now, it's anyone's guess. Below is Anne Thompson's take on how things might »

Leonardo DiCaprio Says He Didn't Expect Overnight Fame After Titanic: 'My Whole Life Became About Things That Weren't Acting'

10 February 2016 4:05 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Leonardo DiCaprio first signed on to play Jack Dawson in Titanic he never expected it would become the highest-grossing film of all time. "Titanic was very much an experiment for Kate Winslet and I," he told Deadline. "We'd done all of these independent movies. I loved her as an actress and she said, 'Let's do this together, we can do this.' We did it, and it became something that we could've never foreseen." The current Oscar frontrunner admitted that after the success of the film, the level of fame he achieved seemingly overnight surprised him. "It was shocking, »

Kate Winslet in Talks to Join Will Smith in ‘Collateral Beauty’

10 February 2016 3:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kate Winslet is in talks to join the New Line ensemble drama “Collateral Beauty” starring Will Smith.

The cast also includes Helen Mirren, Ed Norton, Michael Pena and Naomie Harris. Keira Knightley is also in negotiations to join the cast.

The Allan Loeb-written script centers on a New York advertising exec (Smith) who experiences a deep personal tragedy. His colleagues devise a unique plan to break him out of his depression — which works, but not in a way that anyone imagined.

Details surrounding Winslet’s role are unknown at this time.

Village Roadshow Pictures is co-producing/co-financing the project, which is targeting a mid-February start in New York. “Collateral Beauty” has just been slated for release on Dec. 16, making it another Winslet project in prime position to make another award season run.

Winslet is currently nominated for best supporting actress for her role in “Steve Jobs.” She next appears »

If Kate Winslet Is Walking Funny, Here's the Reason Why

10 February 2016 3:02 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kate Winslet is a real trooper. The Oscar winner admits that she forced herself to work through some major pain while shooting the new dirty cop drama Triple 9. In the movie, she plays an evil Russian mobster, whose over-the-top fashion includes an incredible pair of red knee-high boots. The film's costume designer Margot Wilson had them custom-made because, as Winslet said, "I have quite big feet." But the day before she was to slip them on, she was shooting a scene in a restaurant with co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor. "As we wrapped that day, I stood up and an extra stood up from his chair quite close to me and it was a large mahogany chair and it just tipped backwards and the »

Australian Billionaire to Tempt Fate and Fund the Sailing of a Titanic II

10 February 2016 2:25 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well, this sounds risky. After years of discussion, it's clear that businessman Clive Palmer will never let go of his dreams for a real-life Titanic II: it's officially setting sail in 2018. Plans were first announced for the Titanic II back in April 2012, around the 100-year anniversary of the tragedy. The timing was intentional: Titanic II will look just like its predecessor, offering the first-, second- and third-class booking options, plus some modern updates on the inside. However, this cruise will go from Jiangsu, China, to Dubai, instead of across the Atlantic. Palmer's company, the Blue Star Line (a nod to the White Star Line, »
