Surprise Oscar nomination for Jake Gyllenhaal (‘Stronger’), say 36% of readers [Poll Results]

Surprise Oscar nomination for Jake Gyllenhaal (‘Stronger’), say 36% of readers [Poll Results]
In a recent poll, we asked Gold Derby readers which actor was most likely to snag an Oscar nomination without support from important industry precursors. With many outstanding performances to choose from, the results were quite divided.

Winning the poll with a solid 36% of the vote is Jake Gyllenhaal. His performance in “Stronger” earned the actor critical praise and his many fans hope he can defy the odds to finally secure Oscar nomination #2. But 27% of respondents are rooting for Robert Pattinson in “Good Time,” who captivates as a morally unsound bank robber attempting to free his brother from prison. In a close third place, 20% of voters think Patrick Stewart will land the first Academy Award nomination of his storied career for his tragic performance in “Logan.”

Despite appearing in “The Post” and “The Shape of Water” (in addition to his awards bid for “Call me by Your Name”), Michael Stuhlbarg could only muster 15% of support.

Sundance Review: ‘Private Life’ Finds Hardship, Honesty, and Humor in Infertility

Over a decade since her remarkably observed and authentically acted The Savages, writer-director Tamara Jenkins makes her long-awaited return to Sundance and feature filmmaking with Private Life, a generous, graceful, full-hearted drama about the complexities of desiring a child when your physiology denies you at every turn. Lest one thinks this is a somber look at such an intimate journey, Jenkins imbues an immense amount of humor and relatability without ever hitting a false note.

Split into chapter of The Retrieval, The Transfer, The Home Study, and The Test–titles which eventually fall away as the process becomes messier–we meet Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) and Richard (Paul Giamatti) years after they’ve already been trying to have children. In their forties and living on a noisy street in Manhattan’s Alphabet City, they still hold passion for their more fruitful past lives in the arts, but to make ends meet

2018 Oscar nominations surprise: Jake Gyllenhaal, Patrick Stewart, Robert Pattinson or …? [Poll]

2018 Oscar nominations surprise: Jake Gyllenhaal, Patrick Stewart, Robert Pattinson or …? [Poll]
We previously asked readers which actress they thought would score the most shocking Oscar nomination. A performer who may have garnered early critical support but saw their Oscar hopes dimmed when industry groups forgot about them. And now it’s time to look at which men in the race could pull off a similar feat.

Past examples of men who defied the odds include Tommy Lee Jones (“In the Valley of Elah”), virtually absent from awards chatter, with only a couple small critics groups nominating him. Somehow he muscled his way to a surprise Best Actor Oscar nomination. Industry groups like SAG and BAFTA have similarly ignored plenty of strong performances this year. Take a look at five such actors and vote in our poll below to let us know which actor you think will be this year’s most shocking nomination.

‘Private Life’ Review: Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn Are Brilliant in Tamara Jenkins’ Crushingly Honest Fertility Epic — Sundance 2018

‘Private Life’ Review: Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn Are Brilliant in Tamara Jenkins’ Crushingly Honest Fertility Epic — Sundance 2018
A hilarious, profanely bougie, and crushingly honest story about a desperate couple trying something — anything — to have a baby before it’s too late, Tamara Jenkins’ first film since “The Savages” has been gestating for nine years, and it’s more than worth the wait.

Another acting showcase for a writer-director who’s previously mined new depths from talents like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Marisa Tomei, “Private Life” stars Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn as Richard and Rachel Grimes, 47 and 41 respectively. They live on East 6th Street and Avenue A, they have two large dogs, and they’re as hyper-literary as you might expect a theater director and a playwright to be (but they’re not all Noah Baumbach about it). But all of those details — everything that makes them who they are — is subsumed into their seemingly endless quest for a child.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Private Life’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Private Life’
Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) and Richard (Paul Giamatti), the beleaguered bohemian-geek couple at the center of “Private Life,” have been trying, through fertility treatments, to get pregnant for years. The movie, written and directed by Tamara Jenkins, is a comedy of fragile hopes and frayed nerves: the story of how these two attempt to have a child by any means necessary — a goal that should bring them together, but instead, after too much failure, it’s tearing them apart. Jenkins isn’t shy about milking the situation for laughs. The film opens with Richard injecting hormones into Rachel’s haunch, a painful procedure that provokes the first of many droll arguments. The two then watch their lives transformed into a hapless experiment that never ends (and never seems to work).

It’s a set-up that provokes a comic array of intrusive humiliations, though each one hangs on the slim possibility of transcendence. The jaunty

New Photos Show Lennie James as Morgan on Fear The Walking Dead Season 4

  • DailyDead
Back in November it was announced that Lennie James' character Morgan would cross over from AMC's The Walking Dead to Fear The Walking Dead. While behind-the-scenes photos of James on the companion series' set were unveiled soon after that announcement, EW has now given fans a new look at Morgan in the apocalyptic world of Fear The Walking Dead Season 4.

Unveiled exclusively by EW, the new photos show Morgan ready to do battle with his trusty staff that he acquired while living with Eastman (John Carroll Lynch). While the exact timeline of Fear The Walking Dead Season 4 (which is filming in Austin, Texas) has yet to be revealed, the appearance of Morgan's staff indicates that in chronological terms of The Walking Dead, the story will be taking place at least after season 3, because Morgan acquired the staff and became much more sane thanks to the teachings of Eastman

Sundance 2018 Adds Films By Lynne Ramsay, Tamara Jenkins, And More

Film News: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Tops Chicago Film Critics Association’s Nominations for 2017

Chicago – The eclectic coming-of-age love story, “Call Me By Your Name” topped the nominations list with eight for the 2017 Chicago Film Critics Association (Cfca) Film Awards, to be announced on Wednesday, December 13th. Director Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of Andre Aciman’s novel garnered nods for Best Picture, Guadagnino for Best Director, and acting noms for Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Timothee Chalamet.

The rest of the field for Best Picture has a variety of genres and themes. Christopher Nolan’s epic “Dunkirk” shares the stage with Greta Gerwig’s intent autobiographical “Lady Bird,” Guillermo Del Toro’s magical “The Shape of Water” and the strange-but-heralded “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The symbolic horror of “Get Out” got first time director Jordan Peele a nomination (joining first timer Greta Gerwig), the late Harry Dean Stanton was recognized for Best Actor in “Lucky,” and Willem Dafoe got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for “The Florida Project.

Chicago Film Critics Association champion Call Me By Your Name with 2017 award nominations

Critical darlings and awards favorites Call Me By Your Name and The Shape of Water proved to be heavy hitters within the Chicago Film Critics Association (of which yours truly is a fresh, honorary member). The former received eight nominations while the latter received seven. Meanwhile, in third place was a three-way tie between Lady Bird, Dunkirk, and Phantom Thread, each with six nominations apiece.

There were also some surprises in store, as Raw (an artistically disturbing French cannibal horror feature seemingly forgotten about during this awards season, and disappointingly so as it’s one of the most overlooked and flat-out best films of the year) managed to secure nominations in both Best Foreign Language Film and Most Promising Filmmaker (a conversation Julia Ducournau definitely deserves to be in alongside popular hopefuls Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele). Beloved character actor Harry Dean Stanton (most of you probably remember him as

Interview: John Carroll Lynch

John Carroll Lynch talks about his directorial debut Lucky, the final film of Harry Dean Stanton.

The BFI London Film Festival 2017 presented Lucky by director John Carroll Lynch. Lucky was the last film of Harry Dean Stanton, who died shortly before the screening. The film is, consciously or not, a tribute to Harry Dean, in one of the most candid, brave, quiet, simple, and iconic roles of a career that spanned seven decades.

It is less of a narrative than tag-team philosophising on mortality and existence, as Lucky visits his doctor, played by Ed Begley, Jr., meets a war veteran played by Tom Skerritt in a diner (they last met on film in the lunch room of the Nostromo in Alien), and drinks with various patrons at the Stagecoach Saloon and Grill, including David Lynch, who holds forth on the existential conundrum of his Awol tortoise.

The Unsettling Second Season of Channel Zero Offers Chills that Never Go Away

Have you finished watching Stranger Things but still have a desire to hear a spooky tale about young people who mess with other dimensions. Check out Channel Zero Season 2. It's all about a scary house that once you go in, you are never sure if you've really left.

The first season dealt with the story of Candle Cove. A Creepypasta about a group of people who all remember an old creepy kids show that never existed. This new season is completely separate from the first season and deals with a different Creepypasta. It's called "No-End House". It's a scary house with six rooms that you have to go through to get to the end. Each room scarier than the last. 

I binged the whole thing in one day, and have to say, I was left satisfied. I feel Syfy is in an interesting place where they know they don't have

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Creator Nick Antosca On His Bleaker Original Ending and Villains Who Manipulate Women

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Creator Nick Antosca On His Bleaker Original Ending and Villains Who Manipulate Women
[Editor’s Note: The following interview contains spoilers for the ending of “Channel Zero: No-End House.”]

If you’re still thinking about the finale of the Syfy series “Channel Zero: No-End House” by this time in 2018, not only has series creator and writer Nick Antosca done his job, he’s made the kind of show of which he’s a fan.

“There’s a particular trap you can fall into in telling a horror story where you prioritize in-the-moment scares over character development and psychological depth. It’s more important that the character have a complete and fulfilling journey than you jump. The kind of horror I love is the kind that unsettles me a year after I saw it, when I think about it,” Antosca said in a recent interview with IndieWire.

For him, part of making a more dynamic approach to the No-End House story culminated with The Father, the being that takes on the appearance of Margot’s (Amy Forsyth

Classics Film Fest Unspools in Colombia (Exclusive)

Classics Film Fest Unspools in Colombia (Exclusive)
With Sean Baker, Trey Edwards, Chris Newman, Ed Lachman, Peter Webber and Mike Hausman among its board members, a new film festival of classic films will unspool from Nov. 10 -13 in Bogota, Colombia.

Dubbed The Classics – Festival of the Films That Will Live Forever, the new film fest is founded by producer Ivonne Torres and Juan Carvajal, co-founder and artistic director of the three-year old Bogota Independent Film Festival, IndieBo.

Buoyed by sell-out crowds at IndieBo last July when the festival screened restored classics via a new pact with Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, Carvajal said: “I saw how these movie gems – rescued and restored with the support of the Film Foundation – deserved nothing better than to be enjoyed where they belong: the big screen.”

For many moviegoers in Bogota, it was the first time to see such classics as Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s “All About Eve,” Elia Kazan’s “On the Waterfront,” and [link=nm

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Is a Bingeworthy Horror Mindtrip That’s Helping Shape TV’s Brand New Rules

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Is a Bingeworthy Horror Mindtrip That’s Helping Shape TV’s Brand New Rules
Wednesday night’s installment of “Channel Zero: No-End House” was an episode-length dose of that universal feeling that comes with watching a piece of finely tuned horror: the tiny voice inside (or outside) that screams, “No! Don’t do it!” As with all on-screen tales of terror, the Syfy anthology series has mined plenty of moments like this in its second season, themed around the all-encompassing psychological consequences of an insidious haunted house. But while “The Damage” was a relative breather in the scope of what’s come before it, “No-End House” as a whole remains an ambitious series that’s building on the innovations of TV’s latest narrative wave.

As two friends who get sucked into the horror of No-End House, a literal end-of-the-road attraction with escalating horrors in each of its six rooms, Margot (Amy Forsyth) and Jules (Aisha Dee) have been fighting memories of their

Channel Zero: Season Two Ratings (No-End House)

Don't spend much time worrying that the Channel Zero TV show will be cancelled too soon. Syfy already renewed the "creepypasta" inspired series for seasons three and four, back in February of 2017. Still, we'll continue to track the ratings, because even renewals can be cancelled. Will Syfy's faith be rewarded? Will the third and fourth seasons of Channel Zero come to fruition? Stay tuned. A Syfy horror anthology, each season of Channel Zero tells a new story featuring different characters. Season two, No-End House, stars Amy Forsyth, John Carroll Lynch, Aisha Dee, Kyla Kane, and Jeff Ward. It centers on a young woman named Margot Sleator (Forsyth) and her best friend Jules (Dee).
