BAFTA predictions: Are we underestimating 'Carol'?

12 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Carol” is the first film since the expansion of the Best Picture field in 2009 to reap six Oscar nominations but be snubbed for the top prize.

Inside the Oscar Nominees Lunch

21 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Academy Nominees lunch is always a convivial way for Oscar nominees to relax (while they work a room full of voters) and congratulate each other at tables full of fellow nominees, and pose for the annual group photo, 20 days ahead of the Academy Awards. 150 gathered this year at the Beverly Hilton; notably absent were working pros Cate Blanchett, Michael Fassbender and Tom HardyBrie Larson has to fly back to Australia for "King Kong" before returning for the Oscars. She's been logging a lot of airline miles, she said.  The Oscars producers Reginald Hudlin and David Hill announced a new "bottom of frame" thank you scroll and permanent record for winners. When they mentioned winners forgetting to thank their directors, Sylvester Stallone raised his hand. He gave young "Room" star Jacob Tremblay a boxing lesson for the photographers.

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s Oscar show “will be the most diverse ever,” producer David Hill told Variety on Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon. Despite the lack of acting nominees of color — which the Academy has no control over — Hill and fellow Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin have been working since September to make sure the Oscars “will have true diversity and will represent what the world looks like.”

The remarks were made at the 35th annual event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Hudlin said that an Oscar nomination is “an amazing moment in the life of any nominee,” and that the lunch is intended to celebrate their accomplishments.

They agreed that it’s crucial for the entire film industry to attain inclusion, but there is also room to celebrate the great film work of 2015, which been somewhat overshadowed in the past month. Or, as Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences »

On Stage with Johnny Depp

8 February 2016 3:00 AM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

I've been conducting tributes at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival for 25 years. Each guest is different (from Clint Eastwood to Cate Blanchett) but spending two hours with them onstage, reviewing their career with an array of film clips, has been rewarding—for me and the audience. My goal is to make the guest feel comfortable so our "interview" becomes more of a conversation. This year, I was a bit more nervous than usual, knowing that honoree Johnny Depp refuses to watch himself on screen and isn't crazy about doing interviews. Then Johnny arrived and greeted me warmly, taking time to kiss my wife and daughter. As we stood backstage he said, "You...

Colette vs. Mary Magdalene

5 February 2016 8:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's Murtada speculating very early on the 2017 Oscar race.

There’s usually a real life person in the best actress lineup. It’s not as prevalent as it is in best actor - 4 this year. But we do have Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence). Last year there were Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones) and Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon). Recently we got everyone from Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) to Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Edith Piaf (Marion Cotillard) and most famously The Queen (Helen Mirren) and her 80s nemesis Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep). Now we have two more possible candidates for the 2017 Oscar race as two interesting biopics were announced this week with two actresses well known to the Academy. French writer Colette (to be played by Keira Knightley) and Jesus disciple Mary Magdalene (Rooney Mara). 

Colette in 1920s

Colette is the more intriguing figure, at least to this non-believer. Born in 1873 she was a journalist, »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Costume Design

5 February 2016 6:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  British costume designer Sandy Powell has been nominated for 10 Academy Awards -- winning on 3 occasions (for "Shakespeare in Love," "The Aviator" and "The Young Victoria") -- and she's now added two more for doing the costumes for both "Cinderella" and "Carol," in both occasions dressing Cate Blanchett in endlessly stunning ensembles.  Will it be enough for Oscar #4? Because she'll be splitting votes between herself, this category may go to the gloriously far out world of "Mad Max." Below is Anne Thompson's take on how things might shake down in the race for best costume design. Check out Thompson on Hollywood's Oscar predictions page for more awards season analysis.

Oscar 2016 Hopefuls Have a Common Enemy: Father Time

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

“Time is on your side,” the Rolling Stones have long assured us, though the heavyweight roles nominated for 88th Academy Awards would sing a different tune. Time’s tendency to force or impede behavior had a significant impact on much of the year’s best acting.

Dramatically, you can’t go wrong by setting tight deadlines. In “The Big Short,” Michael Burry (Christian Bale) hurries to exploit mortgage bonds’ weaknesses before anyone else discovers them, and rushes to infer just the right moment to sell before the house of cards collapses.

In “Spotlight,” Mark Ruffalo plays reporter Mike Rezendes, who is always running against time. “There’s a sense of urgency to almost everything Mike does, as if there could never be enough time to get a source to talk, to get the documents, to write the story — it’s why he runs,” Ruffalo says.

Dan Rather on Why 'Truth' is the Best Journalism Movie of All Time (Plus Exclusive Video)

Let TWC find the best fit for your mood here.]  "This movie has no dragons or robots or sex," Dan Rather proudly stated about the upcoming drama "Truth," "but my hope is that it will broaden a new conversation.

Truth Starring Cate Blanchett on Blu-ray and DVD Today

2 February 2016 2:46 PM, PST | | See recent news »

If there ever were a single event that established the internet as a counter to a highly biased press, it was Dan Rather’s blatant attempt in 2004 to fix an election using phony documentation. It’s been well documented that 60 Minutes Producer Mary Mapes and Rather wanted a “gotcha” story so they ignored journalistic standards to produce one. And they might have gotten away with it (and in an earlier day they would have), except we had entered the Internet age where almost anyone at home could check the facts and documents. That’s what happened and the story quickly fell apart. They got caught lying and fabricating evidence and were drummed out of the mainstream media. That would make an interesting movie rather than Truth, an attempt to make cheaters look like they were doing something noble.

Yet some critics liked the film. Cate Marquis here at We Are »
