Toh!'s Top Ten Films of 2014 (Updated)

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

2014 was a remarkable year for movies big and small, and in spirit, here are top 10 lists from Thompson on Hollywood staffers and contributors. Anne Thompson: 1. "Birdman" Alejandro González Iñárritu took on the most audacious cinematic feat of the year —and corralled a posse of actors with balls, lead by Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, to nail his dissection of Hollywood and the fragile balance between ego and id—shot in exhilarating long takes. 2. "Boyhood" Richard Linklater dreamed up the story of a boy growing over 12 years, from six to 18, and cast Ellar Coltrane as the kid and Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke as his parents. No one else could have conceived, written and directed this daredevil feat.  3. "Mr. Turner" Mike Leigh took his genius method and applied it to his passion project about the great English painter Jmw Turner, channeled to perfection by Cannes Best Actor winner Timothy. »

Michael Keaton says film Birdman will change the way movies are made

14 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Michael Keaton has said that his new film Birdman will change the way Hollywood movies are made in the future.

Alejandro González Iñárritu's film was edited to appear as though it was filmed in one continuous shot.

In an interview with The Guardian, Keaton said: "There was a part where Zach Galifianakis and I were saying: 'Why don't we make the movie the normal way? Why are we doing it like this?' Then you see it and … woah.

"At about minute four or 11, you feel that door behind you slowly click shut and you go: 'Ok, now I'm in. There's no getting off.' It might be extreme to say this, but other people have said it too so I'm gonna go ahead...Birdman has kinda…changed things."

The 63-year-old added: "I'm not saying you won't see traditionally made movies any more. But I've had meetings with directors »

Florida critics spring for 'Birdman,' Linklater, Keaton, Pike, Simmons and Arquette

19 December 2014 4:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I guess the Florida Film Critics Circle really wanted their picks represented in the awards coverage space, seeing as I was pinged twice about it on Twitter today. I hardly see what the rush is, though, as it's more of the same. Kudos to them for picking the best film of the year and all, but as usual, we're getting to the point where these regional critics groups need to stop smelling each other's farts a bit and branch out if possible. At least this crowd got a bit adventurous in the foreign film category. Check out the nominees here, the full list of winners below and all the rest at The Circuit. Best Picture "Birdman" (Runner-up: "Boyhood") Best Director Richard Linklater, "Boyhood" (Runner-up: Alejandro González Iñárritu, "Birdman") Best Actor Michael Keaton, "Birdman" (Runner-up: Jake Gyllenhaal, "Nightcrawler") Best Actress Rosamund Pike, "Gone Girl" (Runner-up: Julianne Moore, "Still Alice") Best Supporting Actor J.K.

Robert Duvall, Alejandro Inarritu Nab Palm Springs Film Fest Honors

19 December 2014 3:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robert Duvall will be honored with the Icon Award and Alejandro G. Inarritu with the Director of the Year award at the Palm Springs Film Festival Gala on January 3.

Robert Duvall gives an outstanding and amazingly realistic performance as Judge Joseph Palmer in ‘The Judge,’” said festival chairman Harold Matzner.

Regarding Inarritu, who is receiving the award for the second time, Matzner said, “By creating the illusion that the film was shot in one take and directing award-worthy performances by Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and a star-studded cast, Inarritu has created a brilliant and original dark comedy in ‘Birdman.'”

Held at the Palm Springs convention center, the gala will also present awards to previously announced honorees Richard Linklater, Julianne Moore, David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Eddie Redmayne, J.K. Simmons, Reese Witherspoon and the cast of “The Imitation Game.”  The festival runs January 2-12.

Guess what? Toronto critics love 'Boyhood' too...

16 December 2014 10:39 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though Circuit underdogs "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Inherent Vice" came close to the top prize, the Toronto Film Critics Association followed suit on Tuesday when it named Richard Linklater’s "Boyhood" as the best film of 2014. Collectively, the group called it "a cinematic masterpiece that evokes beauty in life and the inevitable passage of time," adding an honor to Linklater for his "singular achievement." Additional Tfca awards include another Best Actor win for Tom Hardy in "Locke" and a much-needed nod to Isao Takahata’s stunning animated drama "The Tale of the Princess Kaguya." Along with its award winners, Tfca named Denis Villeneuve’s "Enemy," Michael Dowse’s "The F Word," and Xavier Dolan’s "Mommy" as its three finalists for the Rogers Best Canadian Film Award.  “In an exceptional year for Canadian cinema, we’ve chosen three boldly directed films that are so dissimilar it’s almost hard »

Birdman and Budapest top Critics Choice noms

16 December 2014 8:50 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

BirdmanBoyhood and a host of now regulars on the awards circuit were among the top films listed in the 20th Critics' Choice Movie Awards nominations Monday, but it was Wes Anderson's darkly whimsical The Grand Budapest Hotel that surprised with 11 nominations.

In addition to nods for the film, the direction, the script and the cinematography, star Ralph Fiennes was also recognized in two acting categories: best actor and best actor in a comedy.

Though beloved by critics and a box office success, The Grand Budapest Hotel was seen as a dark horse in the awards race due in part to its March release date. But after earning four Golden Globe nominations last week, the quirky film could be rising in awards stature as Hollywood awaits the start of Oscar nominations voting.

Birdman scored the most nominations, though, with 13 in categories such as best picture and best director. LeadMichael »
