‘Birdman’ Wins Producers Guild Award for Best Movie

12 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Birdman” has won the Producers Guild of America’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award for best movie — elevating its status as an awards-season front-runner since the last seven PGA winners have gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar.

Fox Searchlight’s dark comedy, starring Michael Keaton as a washed-up film star, topped “American Sniper,’ “Boyhood,” “Foxcatcher,” “Gone Girl,” “Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game,” “Nightcrawler,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Whiplash.”

Boyhood” had been the consensus favorite to win the PGA trophy — based on voting by more than 6,700 PGA members — with “American Sniper,” “Birdman” and “Imitation Game” pegged as the most likely to score an upset.

The award went to director Alejandro G. Inarritu, John Lesher, James W. Skotchdopole.

Could Dan Gilroy Become the Sixth Director Oscar-Nommed for First Feature?

13 January 2015 6:56 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Screenwriter Dan Gilroy made his directorial this year with Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a corrupt freelance crime reporter who will do anything to get a story. Since the film’s premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, it’s garnered Oscar buzz and has been compared to best picture winner Crash (2004).  It holds a 95 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, was named one of AFI’s top 10 films of the year and received four BAFTA nominations, as well as three Critics’ Choice Awards. Gyllenhaal has earned Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice acting nominations. If Gilroy were to earn a nomination for best director, like Crash did, he would become the sixth director in the 21st century to achieve that accolade.

Tony Gilroy, Dan’s older brother, earned his first Oscar nomination for Michael Clayton (2007), his directorial debut. He was also nominated for best original screenplay. »

New Trailer For House Of Cards Season 3 Online

11 January 2015 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Almost as if they were celebrating something, Netflix have chosen Golden Globes time to unleash a new trailer for the incoming new season of House Of Cards. Prepare to be eyeballed by Kevin Spacey as he asks us to consider what takes real courage...Spacey, as you'll probably know by now, walked away with the Golden Globe for Best Actor In A TV Series, for his continuing portrayal of the ruthless and Machiavellian democrat VP (until recently, they said spoilerifically...) Frank Underwood."This is just the beginning of my revenge." he said in Underwood-style acceptance. "This is the eighth time I've been nominated. I can't fucking believe I won."Tony Gilroy, the man behind The Bourne Legacy, Michael Clayton and the Us version of State Of Play, joined House Of Cards' behind-the-scenes team this year as a consultant, so expect Jeremy Renner to show up as an assassin.

Paul Greengrass And Matt Damon’s Untitled Bourne Sequel Pushed Back Two Weeks

6 January 2015 12:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As a result of 20th Century Fox re-arranging its release slate for the next couple of years, the untitled Bourne sequel set up at Universal is making a move. The fifth chapter in the Bourne series will now be delayed by a further two weeks, shifting its initial release from July 15th to July 29th, 2016. Filling a prime slot vacated by Matt Reeves’ next Planet Of The Apes sequel – which will now open in July 2017 – the next entry in the amnesiac spy saga is destined to reunite franchise alums Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon.

After years of the duo refusing to consider another sequel, they eventually reached a decision to resurrect Jason Bourne and Damon himself broadcast the news on his Project Greenlight show. Director Greengrass and leading man Damon originally exited the series following the third instalment, The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007. Despite Universal’s enthusiasm to continue forward with further sequels, »

Universal Sets Next Jason Bourne Movie in Vacated 'Apes 3' Date

6 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Just last night, 20th Century Fox pushed back their release of the sequel to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes from July 29th, 2016 all the way back to the next summer on July 14th, 2017. And now Universal Pictures is taking advantage of the schedule shift, and they've moved their release of the Untitled Next Bourne Chapter, which brings back Matt Damon as Jason Bourne and Paul Greengrass as director, from July 15th 2016 to two weeks later on July 29th, 2016. The only other film in that slot is a yet to be cast Fox comedy called Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates, so Bourne is in the clear. In addition, Damon and Greengrass will write the script with editor Christopher Rouse, with no trace of Tony Gilroy now. »

Untitled Bourne Sequel Set for July 29, 2016; Paul Greengrass, Matt Damon, and Christopher Rouse to Write the Script

6 January 2015 11:16 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

No offense to Aaron Cross and his chems, but if we have to have another Bourne movie, I'm glad it's with Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass.  After years of Damon refusing to do a sequel without Greengrass to the point where Universal threw up their hands and decided to reboot the franchise, the duo is returning.  Furthermore, they're going to be writing the script along with Christopher Rouse, who doesn't have a writing credit but has edited all of Greengrass' movies since The Bourne Ultimatum, which is perfect since Greengrass is known for finding the movie in the editing room anyway. Universal has also announced that the "Untitled Next Bourne Chapter" (kind of a mouthful there, Universal) will be released on July 29, 2016.  Hit the jump for more. It's worth noting that this will be the first Bourne movie without the involvement of Tony Gilroy, who is credited with the »

Birdman, Nightcrawler and Gone Girl are among the films nominated for the 26th annual Producers Guild of America (PGA) Awards.

Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything have also been recognised in what is considered an indication of potential Oscar winners. Selma was a noticeable absence from the PGA nominations, after studio Paramount did not send screeners to voters in time.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 and The Lego Movie are two of the motion pictures nominated in the Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures category.

Producers Guild of America Nominations, "Selma" Snubbed!

5 January 2015 1:05 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Movies made by women directors were snubbed by the Producers Guild of America when they announced the nominees today! Both "Selma" by Ava DuVernay and "Unbroken" by Angelina Jolie were left in the dust. I agree with not nominating the latter movie (sorry Ms. Jolie but "Unbroken" is too earnest for my taste) but "Selma" deserved a nod! It's a profound movie aided by DuVernay's skilled directing and David Oyelowo's fine performance as Martin Luther King Jr.

You know who I'm blaming for this? Paramount! The studio did not send screeners to Academy voters. Heck, they did not sent one to us, the Broadcast Film Critics Association. But after begging, they did send a link so I could watch "Selma" in time for our Critics' Choice Movie Award nominations.

"Selma" is a "late to the party" entry that is gaining momentum dashed by the PGA! If you remember, Clint Eastwood »

‘Birdman,’ ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Imitation Game’ Among Producers Guild Nominations

5 January 2015 9:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

American Sniper,” “Birdman,” “Boyhood,” “Foxcatcher,” “Gone Girl,” “Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game,” “Nightcrawler,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Whiplash” have been nominated for the Producers Guild of America’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award for top feature film.

Nightcrawler” was probably the biggest surprise among the 10 nominees, while “Into the Woods,”  “Selma,” “Unbroken” and “Wild” were among the notable exclusions.

Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” wound up in a dead heat last year as both won the Zanuck award — the first tie in the PGA’s 25-year history for the trophy. The PGA uses the preferential balloting system employed for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the Oscars.

Producers Guild Nominations Range from ‘Boyhood’ to ‘Gone Girl’

5 January 2015 9:06 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Richard Linklater‘s personal indie “Boyhood” and David Fincher’s dark blockbuster “Gone Girl” are among the nominees for the Producers Guild of America’s top film award, the PGA announced on Monday morning.

Other nominees for the PGA honor, which tends to be a reliable indicator of Oscar potential, are Clint Eastwood‘s “American Sniper,” the adventurous comic story “Birdman,” British biopics “The Imitation Game” and “The Theory of Everything,” Wes Anderson‘s stylish “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” the driving indie “Whiplash,” Bennett Miller’s subtle “Foxcatcher” and Dan Gilroy’s dark and creepy “Nightcrawler.”

'Gone Girl,' 'Nightcrawler,' 'Whiplash' score PGA nominations

5 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) added to the industry mix Monday morning with a list of 10 nominees to keep the awards season grist mill churning. "Gone Girl" popped up again, and it shouldn't be a surprise. It's one of the year's biggest hits. And speaking of hits, I had a hunch "Nightcrawler" would find a place after becoming such a well-liked, profitable success. There it sits. The question for both of these films is whether this on-going industry/guild love ends up translating to Oscar recognition. After the "Dragon Tattoo" rush a few years ago, I'm pretty much wait-and-see on stuff like this. Absent from the list was anything out of the Marvel Studios comic book factory, notable as both "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" were both on the top tier of box office earners in 2014. The former currently maintains the throne, though it »

Here Are the 2014 PGA Awards Film and Television Nominees

5 January 2015 6:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The Producers Guild of America announced Monday its list of film and television nominees for its 2014 awards, and the list is as notable for its omissions as it is for its selections.

Among the films in the running for the top prize -- known formally as the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures -- are "American Sniper," "Birdman," "Boyhood," "Foxcatcher," "Gone Girl," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Nightcrawler," "The Theory of Everything," and "Whiplash."

But it's the films that were left off the list that had awards season prognosticators in a tizzy Monday. "Selma," "Unbroken," and "Into the Woods" all failed to score nominations, leading some to wonder if those movies' Oscar chances have dimmed significantly.

On the television front, "American Horror Story: Freak Show," "Fargo," "The Normal Heart," "The Roosevelts: An Intimate History," and "Sherlock" all scored nominations in the long-form television category. »

10 Directors to Watch: Dan Gilroy Dissects L.A. in ‘Nightcrawler,’ Next Project

2 January 2015 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A veteran screenwriter and native Angeleno, Gilroy may be a first-time helmer, but between movie-star wife Rene Russo, Pulitzer-winning dad Frank D. Gilroy (“The Subject Was Roses”), writer-director brother Tony Gilroy (“Michael Clayton”) and film-editor twin John Gilroy (“Salt”), he’s also Hollywood royalty. None are easy acts to follow, yet at age 55, Gilroy is living up to his legacy with “Nightcrawler.”

Until he penned the provocative thriller two years ago, “I’d never felt, ‘This is something I have to direct,’ ” he says, “so I was very confident that I’d picked the right vehicle.” A writer’s touch is evident in the story of a sleazy opportunist (Jake Gyllenhaal) selling crime-scene footage to an L.A. news producer (Russo) and its harsh commentary on “hyper-capitalism” and the media — an arena the former Variety reporter knows well. “I have a strong desire to communicate what I feel about the world. »
