Some of award season's top directors are paying tribute to Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at the age of 83. Earlier this week while participating in The Hollywood Reporter's Director Roundtable, Interstellar's Christopher Nolan and Boyhood's Richard Linklater praised 1988's Working Girl as among their favorites. Unbroken director Angelina Jolie said she had never met Nichols, but "you could tell from his films — I can't imagine he wasn't a really great person."

Los Angeles traffic is the woooooooorst.

I’m going to keep it short and sweet today folks, or at least a bit shorter than usual in terms of set up. You all know by now that it’s time for my middle of the month Oscar predictions update piece. Sometimes, there’s only a tinker or two to be done, but today…today I have a seismic shift to include, namely in the arrival of Selma on the scene. It’s gone from being shut out (what was I thinking?) to contending for wins in multiple major categories. In fact, more than one of the big eight categories have new winners listed, so this is a definite change in thinking. Some of it might be short lived, but that’s what the upcoming new set of predictions next month is for, right? I’ve also added the three short form categories (Animated Short, Documentary Short, and »

Back in August 2013, Spike Lee launched plans for his newest movie on Kickstarter, causing a big hullabaloo in the process. People questioned whether an established director like him was taking money away from other independent filmmakers and projects, even though he clarified that more people came to Kickstarter who had never heard of the service. He added that this was the new order, the new way indie filmmakers like himself got the word out.
Lee did end up earning the funding for his film, just over $1.4 million from over 6,000 backers, and now that film has finally arrived. The movie is Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, a reimagining of a cult horror classic from 1973 Ganja & Hess. Indiewire has details that the film will be released in theaters and VOD, presumably with many perks for Kickstarter backers, on February 13, 2015. This follows its premiere at the American Black Film Festival back in June, »

Let's face it: If you spend your days voluntarily staring at a variety of glowing rectangles, chances are you're probably not much of a daredevil. That said, the things you're seeing and hearing via those rectangles might inspire you to wish you could change your ways—if only for a few minutes after the movie/show/song is over. So in honor of Mockingjay — Part 1's rebelliously action-packed release this weekend, we've posed the following question to our staff this week: What's the movie/TV show/song/book that makes you embrace your inner badass?

Almost every year, Clint Eastwood attempts to have an Oscar contender ready to drop into the race. Sometimes, those campaigns pan out, as when Million Dollar Baby (2004) and Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) drummed up Academy support. Recently, however, Eastwood films like Hereafter, J. Edgar and Jersey Boys have failed to generate awards heat. Will American Sniper connect with voters, or fizzle out before the race even begins? We discuss the film.s prospects in this week.s Awards Blend podcast. Not a lot has changed this week, as few movies that haven.t already been seen chose to show their cards. Most of us are still waiting on Angelina Jolie.s Unbroken, which held its world premiere in Australia (but is under strict embargo for every print outlet). Movies like Selma and American Sniper did start screening for wider critical audiences, however, and I.ve shifted the charts accordingly based »

Six-time Academy Award Nominee Alexandre Desplat is a remarkably versatile composer with a distinct voice who has collaborated with some of the world’s top filmmakers. His films this year range from Wes Anderson’s The Grand Hotel Budapest, to George Clooney’s The Monuments Men, the blockbuster action thriller Godzilla, Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game. Desplat’s compelling score for the Alan Turing biopic starring Benedict Cumberbatch features lots of keyboards, clarinets, and fast arpeggios which support the pacing of the film and capture the story’s thrilling intensity and the humanity of characters who are racing against time to crack the Nazi’s Enigma code during WWII. In an exclusive interview, Desplat discussed his collaboration with Tyldum, the tight schedule he was under to deliver the film, how he created themes that resonated with the storyline of a film that has an »

Wildlike screens at 5:00pm Saturday, November 22nd at the Tivoli Theatre as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival. Ticket information can be found Here
The “fish out of water” story is nothing new. Even in as remote a location as Alaska, there have been numerous films and TV shows going back to at least Northern Exposure (and its predecessor Twin Peaks) that chronicle the effects of living in remote isolation on a person used to the big city. But no project in recent memory has utilized the extreme open spaces and majestic grandeur of the Alaskan outback in such a beautiful way as the new film Wildlike.
Mackenzie (Ella Purnell) is a troubled teenage girl who is shipped off to live with her uncle in Alaska. With no father and a mother who is undergoing treatments for some never-explained illness, Mackenzie is struggling, »

Some people were shocked by yesterday's news of Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie ("Girl Interrupted") saying she will “absolutely” give up her acting career and focus on directing. “I’ve never been comfortable as an actor; I’ve never loved being in front of the camera,” Jolie told Du Jour magazine. “I didn’t ever think I could direct, but I hope I’m able to have a career at it because I’m much happier.” Maleficent owes most of its success to Jolie's scene chewing performance, so it would be a shame if it was one of her last acting roles. Let's watch some of that amazing acting talent in the 13-minute long video below of Cinema Sins nitpicking Maleficent to death. “Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, »
I don't know why Jennifer Aniston doesn't get more respect as an actress. Sure, she's a tabloid magnet, but so are her Oscar-winning ex Brad Pitt and his Oscar-winning wife Angelina Jolie. And her resume is padded with dubious comedies, but so is Matthew McConaughey's. The academy was quick to celebrate his career "McConaissance" last year, so why not the "Anissance"? Her new indie drama "Cake" would be a good opportunity to do so. -Break- Experts' Best Actress predictions: Julianne Moore ('Still Alice') way out front If you think Aniston will break through at the Oscars for the first time, click here to make your predictions in all top categories, or use our drag-and-drop menu at the bottom of this post to get started.

First of all, if anyone knows how to play coy, it's Angelina Jolie. So we wouldn't be surprised if the 39-year-old actress just kept on acting forever, despite her comments here and there over the past year that she may pack it in in favor of being a full-time director-humanitarian-mom-wife-superwoman-etc. "I'll do a few more," Jolie told Variety, in an interview posted yesterday, when asked about reports that she plans to retire from the acting portion of showbiz. " I'm about to direct something with Brad and myself in fact." Well, By the Sea, starring Jolie and real-life hubby Brad Pitt as a troubled married couple, has already started shooting in Malta, so that's one »
Scarlett Johansson stepped out Tuesday night at the 2nd annual Champions of Rockaway Hurricane Sandy Benefit in New York City, sporting a small silver band on her ring finger.

If this were Jennifer Garner, Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé, or any other married Hollywood A-lister, we typically wouldn’t think twice about it. However, the rumors started flying when the Avengers star sported the band in addition to the already gorgeous Art Deco engagement ring on that same finger.
The 29-year-old attended the event with her incredibly handsome twin brother Hunter. But even despite his good looks, we just couldn’t take our eyes off of ScarJo and how great she looked after having a baby just two months ago!

Angelina Jolie looked stunning in a lace patterned strapless gown as she and husband Brad Pitt posed for the photographers at the world premiere of her film 'Unbroken' in Sydney, Australia. Meanwhile Angelina and Brad Pitt's eldest son is working as a production assistant. The 39-year-old actress has hired Maddox, 13, to work on the set of their upcoming movie, 'By The Sea,' in Malta. The brunette beauty, who is directing Brad in the film, decided to give him a job after he spent a lot of time on the set of her movie 'Unbroken' in Australia earlier this year. The teenager was spotted wandering around the set, observing the activities and talking to the actors while in Sydney, Australia. Angelia is very close to her six children - Maddox, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, with her husband »
When it was reported that Angelina Jolie's next project would see her directing husband Brad Pitt in an intimate drama called By the Sea (see first look photos here), I mentioned that the actress seemed anxious to spend more time behind the camera than in front of it (unless it's in her own projects), and I wouldn't be surprised to see acting take a backseat in her career. Well, that's exactly what will happen eventually as Jolie had an interview with Du Jour Magazine (via JoBlo) and said that she "absolutely" intends to give up the acting side of things entirely in order to concentrate on just being a full-time director instead. More below! Jolie explained, "I’ve never been comfortable as an actor; I’ve never loved being in front of the camera. I didn’t ever think I could direct, but I hope I’m able to »

Angelina Jolie runs a tight ship when she's in the director's seat, no matter who she's dealing with. The Oscar winner, who graces the cover of Du Jour magazine this month next to Unbroken's Jack O'Connell, opened up about working both on the Louis Zamperini biopic and with her husband on By the Sea. When asked how her flick with Brad Pitt is coming along, the mother of six explained that the movie making process hasn't been without its share of hurdles. "Compared to Unbroken, this film is a walk in the park," she said. "The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad. It's hard, dramatic material, and we're balancing. It's a heavy film, and »
