6 February 2016 4:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – “Truman,” Cesc Gay’s friendship dramedy, produced by Marta Esteban, topped Spain’s 30th Spanish Academy Goya Awards Saturday night sweeping picture, director, actor (Ricardo Darin), supporting actor (Camara), original screenplay (Gay and Tomas Aragay), kudos ceremony that lived up to its status as the widest open of recent years, spreading its plaudits widely.

Following on Darin and Camara’s joint best actor plaudit at September’s San Sebastian Festival, “Truman” was, when the big prizes finally went down, the Awards’ clear major winner.

5 February 2016 10:03 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of Scandinavia’s top directors, Susanne Bier was on hand at the Goteborg Film Festival to receive the Dragon Honorary Award. The helmer, who earned an Oscar nom for “After the Wedding” and won an Oscar for “In a Better World,” is now making her TV debut with the British-American spy series “The Night Manager,” which is based on John le Carré’s novel and stars Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman. The upbeat Danish-born director has been working in the Nordics and in the U.S. throughout her career, making character-driven, often heart-wrenching movies that explore themes such as grief and family disruption. Bier has made a few English-language pics with A-listers, such as “Things We Lost in the Fire” with Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro, and most recently “Serena,” starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

How does it feel to receive this lifetime achievement now, »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s funny,” says Adam McKay — the Oscar-nominated co-writer and director of The Big Short who heretofore was known for the raunchy comedies he made with Will Ferrell, such as Anchorman and Talladega Nights — as we sit down in his guest house to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “The whole time we were making the movie I never thought of it as, ‘I’m doing something different.’ You just chase the movie, is kind of all you do. But there’s no question we’re thrilled with the reaction it’s getting.”

What Does the Best Ensemble SAG Award Win Mean for ‘Spotlight’ at the Oscars?

1 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Saturday evening’s 22nd Annual SAG Awards proved that we have a real race on our hands for best picture. The night’s biggest prize, the best ensemble award, which has been awarded to 10 of the last 20 best pic winners, went to Spotlight.

Director Tom McCarthy’s drama about Boston Globe reporters investigating the Catholic Church’s child molestation scandal is led by performances from best supporting actor Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo, best supporting actress nom Rachel McAdams, and best actor nom last year, Michael Keaton.  The film previously won the Critics’ Choice award for best picture.

Rival contenders The Big Short and The Revenant, took home best picture honors at the PGA  Awards and Golden Globes, respectively, with The Martian also winning a best picture award (in the comedy/musical category) at the Golden Globes.

So, what does a best ensemble win at SAG »

Captain Phasma Is in 'Star Wars 8'

31 January 2016 12:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We reported earlier this month that Star Wars: Episode VIII was delayed, with production set to begin next month and the studio moving the release date from May 26, 2017 to December 15, 2017. Even though production will begin soon, we still don't have a confirmed cast list for the sequel yet, although we did learn over the weekend that one Star Wars: The Force Awakens star will return, with Gwendoline Christie confirming that she will return as Captain Phasma. Here's what she had to say in an interview with People.

Star Wars: Episode VIII script out to the cast

30 January 2016 3:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, it was announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII has been pushed back to December 15th 2017, with rumours suggesting the delay was to allow for rewrites to the script to increase the focus on Star Wars: The Force Awakens favourites Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren. Well, those rumours were either wide of the mark, or the rewrites have already been completed, as both Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Anthony Daniels (C-3Po) have taken to social media to reveal that they’ve now seen the screenplay…

Academy Announces Diverse First Slate of Oscars Presenters, Performers

28 January 2016 2:15 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It looks like the Academy is trying to make amends for the #OscarsSoWhite backlash, with its announcement of a diverse first slate of presenters and performers for next month's Oscars ceremony.

The list was revealed in alphabetical order and without designating exactly who's performing and who's presenting, though it appears that the performers will most likely be nominees Lady Gaga (up for Best Original Song for "Til It Happens to You" from "The Hunting Ground"), The Weeknd ("Fifty Shades of Grey" tune "Earned It"), and Sam Smith ("Spectre" theme "The Writing's On the Wall").

Presenters will include past Oscar winners Benicio Del Toro, Whoopi Goldberg, and Charlize Theron, as well as Tina Fey, Ryan Gosling (a 2007 nominee for "Half Nelson"), Kevin Hart, Jacob Tremblay, and Pharrell Williams (a nominee and performer in 2014 for "Despicable Me 2"'s ubiquitous "Happy"). Many more names are expected where those came from.

The Oscars heard the outcries of Hollywood loud and clear. After facing endless backlash surrounding the lack of diversity in this year's Oscar nominee pool, the people behind putting on the age-old ceremony have announced its first batch of presenters slated to hand out golden statues on Feb. 28.—and let's just say there is more than one skin tone represented.  The handpicked group of stars ranges in age, ethnicity, race and gender— a seemingly subtle response to the outrage of the industry's loudest critics. The third Puerto Rican winner in Oscar history, Benicio Del Toro, is scheduled to take the stage as well as 9-year-old Room breakout star Jacob Tremblay and »
