Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence and Julianne Moore -- our five most recent winners in this category -- all have extremely baiting new films coming out this year, and it's entirely possible that they all come back and make this an epic race of almost all very recent winners. Could they be joined by a slightly less recent winner if Charlize Theron pulls a Sigourney Weaver and gets an all-too-rare (and extremely deserved) nomination for an action film with "Mad Max: Fury Road." Of those six potential nominees, two of them are in films we've already seen at either festivals or in theaters, and they join a very impressive roster of other lead performances that have already seen the light of day (or dark of the movie theater, as it were). There's actually considerably more contenders here that we've already seen than in the Best Actor category, »

Just the other day a reader alerted me to a report at BoxOffice.com that Sony Classics had dated James Vanderbilt's Truth for an Oct. 16 release. It seemed odd in that a) the film hadn't been announced for either Venice or Toronto; b) we hadn't seen a trailer or promotional still; c) Sony Classics didn't have the film even listed on their press site; and d) one would expect all these things given the awards buzz surrounding star Cate Blanchett in the role of Mary Mapes. As it turns out, the report was accurate, the film will arrive in October and we also have the first look at Blanchett and Robert Redford in the upcoming film. Of course, there's a bit of decision-making to be had when it comes to Blanchett as she is also looked at as a top contender for Best Actress for her role in Carol. »

Is Cate Blanchett going for the triple crown this year? The two-time Academy Award winner already delighted audiences as the wicked, but semi-sympathetic step mother in Kenneth Branaugh’s live action “Cinderella” in March. In May she earned critical acclaim for her work as the title character in Todd Haynes’ “Carol.” The Weinstein Company is going to release that highly anticipated awards player in November. But, Blanchett fans can rejoice because they’ll have one more shot to enjoy the incredible Aussie’s talents before the end of 2015 and it promises to tell the “Truth.” Sony Pictures Classics announced today that "Truth," James Vanderbilt’s directorial debut, will open in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 16. Based on a true story, the new drama chronicles the final days of legendary CBS News anchor Dan Rather (Robert Redford) as both he and the network deal with the ramifications of a »

Truth is based on the events that followed a late 2004 report by Dan Rather on CBS about George W Bush’s alleged dereliction of duty while serving in the National Guard during the Vietnam War.
The story was uncovered by Rather’s producer Mary Mapes, a veteran journalist who had previously uncovered the Abu-Ghraib prison abuse story.
The report was subsequently discredited by the government, led at the time by George W Bush, and led to the ruining of Rather’s career and the firing of Mapes.
The incident sparked an ongoing dialogue about journalism, big media and government interference.
The film has not been part of any autumn festival line-up announcement so far and could be a target for Telluride given the pedigree of the cast and the participation of Spc, whose films often »

Conspicuously absent from the Toronto and Venice lineups was Truth, the star-studded journalism drama starring Robert Redford as reporter Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as CBS News journalist Mary Mapes, and now Sony Pictures Classics has confirmed that the film will indeed enter the Oscar race with a newly set October release.
Zodiac scribe James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut on the tense drama, about the last days Rather, an anchor, and Mapes, a producer, spent at CBS News after broadcasting a highly damaging and controversial report about how President George W. Bush, then seeking re-election, relied on his family connections to avoid serving in the United States National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. The story made national headlines, and its accuracy was soon called into question, resulting in Mapes’ firing and hastening Rather’s retirement from the news network.
Truth certainly has all the trappings of an Oscar contender. »

Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford’s “Truth” will spread in limited release on October 16, Sony Pictures Classics said Friday. Based on the nonfiction book “Truth and Duty” by Mary Mapes, the drama tells of the real-life relationship between newsman Dan Rather (Redford) and his producer Mapes (Blanchett) over several major news stories the pair broke — and one erroneous report that would blemish their reputations and that of the CBS News. “Truth” will roll out nationally after an starting run in New York and Los Angeles. Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss and Dennis Quaid co-star led by director James Vanderbuilt. Also Read: Cannes: Cate. »

Get your first look right here! Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a photo from the upcoming film Truth, which is the directorial debut of screenwriter James Vanderbilt (of The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, White House Down). The film stars Robert Redford as Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes, and presents a behind-the-scenes look inside CBS News during Rather's final days there. This photo only shows Blanchett in the make-up room with Redford as Rather, though you can barely see him only through a mirror. At least it's something, and puts this on the map for the awards season as we end the summer and head deeper into the fall. Blanchett is always one to watch. See below.

Truth, the upcoming film based on the 2004 “Rathergate” scandal from Sony Pictures Classics, now has a release date aimed to prime the film for consideration during awards season. The pic starring Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett will hit select theaters in New York and Los Angeles on October 16, with wide release to follow. “Rathergate” refers to the drama surrounding the story, reported by Mary Mapes and Dan Rather for CBS, that President George W. Bush might have been… »
The film is based on the Mary Mapes book “Truth and Duty,” and Blanchett plays Mapes, a CBS News journalist and Rather’s producer.
“Truth” follows Mapes and Rather as they uncover allegations that George W. Bush may have been Awol from the U.S. National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. Four documents were presented as authentic in a “60 Minutes” broadcast aired by CBS on Sept. 8, 2004, less than two months before the 2004 election, but it was later determined that CBS had failed to authenticate the documents.
The ensuing scandal ruined Rather’s career »

While Toronto and Venice raised excitement levels for the fall festivals by announcing their initial lineups this week, there are plenty more movies to come. One that certainly has awards season prognosticators wondering where it'll show up is "Truth," with the starry, true story drama now slated for an October release. Sony Pictures Classics announced that "Zodiac" screenwriter James Vanderbilt's directorial debut will open on October 16th. Based on the book “Truth and Duty” by Mary Mapes, the film tells the incredible true story of how Mapes (Cate Blanchett), an award-winning CBS News journalist, and Dan Rather (Robert Redford), uncovered that a sitting U.S. president may have been Awol from the United States National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. When the story blew up in their face, the ensuing scandal ruined Dan Rather’s career, nearly changed a U.S. Presidential election, and almost »

Sony Pictures Classics has released the first photo from "Truth," the true story drama which they've set an October 16th release date for. The date puts the film squarely in awards season and could see Cate Blanchett competing against herself for her work in Todd Haynes' "Carol".
The film deals with how CBS Producer Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett) and Dan Rather (Robert Redford) uncovered that a sitting U.S. president may have been Awol from the U.S. National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War.
When the story blew up in their face, the ensuing scandal ruined Rather's career and almost took down all of CBS News in the process. James Vanderbilt penned the script and makes his directorial debut on the project.

The Weinstein Company’s chief operating officer David Glasser has resigned after seven years at the independent studio.
Glasser said he’s leaving the company in search of a new opportunity. He will stay on to find a replacement as TWC prepares for awards season.
“It has been an incredible run at the Weinstein Company, but I have decided to take some time and explore my options in the industry,” Glasser said in a statement. “I will remain with TWC until November, where I will work closely with our team to set up the incredible slate for 2015/2016.”
Bob and Harvey Weinstein said in a statement that they were “disappointed” to hear of Glasser’s decision. “He has been one of the best executives we’ve had the privilege of working with and we have had a tremendous run together,” the Weinsteins said in a statement. “David will be missed at TWC, »

Read More: Cannes Review: Todd Haynes' 'Carol' is a Masterful Lesbian Romance Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara As awards season approaches at an ever-more rapid rate, The Weinstein Company has made a few changes to their upcoming schedule, including an earlier release date for Todd Haynes' awards favorite and Cannes hit, "Carol." The drama will now open in limited release on November 20, moving up nearly a full month from its original release date of December 18. Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the feature will now go up directly against the final "Hunger Games" film, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2," but should benefit from an earlier start than was originally planned. TWC has also pushed back their Bradley Cooper chef comedy, once known as "Adam Jones," from October 2 to October 23. The film has also been retitled "Burnt," marking its second title change -- it was originally known as. »
