Oscar Announces Changes for Foreign-Film Voting: Now Simpler! (Sort Of.)

22 September 2017 6:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As promised, new Academy president John Bailey, a long-time and passionate voter on the foreign language committee, has pushed through some long-awaited changes in the voting rules. It’s meant to be simpler; here’s how the new system works.

By the October 2 deadline, the Academy expects some 90 foreign entries. These will be divided into multiple lists (the number is Tbd; last year, there were four); committee participants (volunteers from all 17 Academy branches) are each assigned a list. They are required to watch all of the films on their assigned list at one of two screening rooms in L.A. They can see as many films on other lists as they like, and will receive full credit for each movie they screen. (Previously, a committee member had to watch a given percentage of films to qualify for voting.)

The Academy acknowledges that many questions about the actual breakdown of lists »

George Clooney: The Key to Diversity Lies with Studio Executives, Not the Oscars — Exclusive Interview

10 September 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

George Clooney has a message for anyone criticizing the Oscars for a lack of diversity: You’re looking in the wrong place. “It’s less about the Academy and more about the industry,” said the 56-year-old actor-director during an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival. “I think we need to get more interesting young minority filmmakers getting their films out. It was great to see ‘Moonlight’ do what it did. I’m happy to see that. We need more of those.”

As another awards season takes flight, there are fewer buzzy fall titles with people of color and women directors, which has already raised fears of another #OscarsSoWhite sequel. Clooney, however, thinks that the film industry needs to change its ways if Oscar voters want diverse options. He »

Early-Year Releases Wrestle Oscar Attention Away From Festival Circuit

6 September 2017 4:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Venice-Telluride-Toronto film festival corridor begins to churn out something resembling an Oscar season beat sheet, a handful of earlier 2017 releases are speaking up, lest they be lost in the fall prestige clutter.

Wednesday night, 20th Century Fox will hold a screening of James Mangold’s “Logan” — on the Warner Bros. lot, oddly enough — with Mangold and star Hugh Jackman on hand for a Q&A. The film hit theaters less than a week after last February’s Oscars ceremony and went on to rack up over $616 million in global box office receipts. It also remains one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films.

Academy President John Bailey on ‘Broad Spectrum’ of Honorary Oscar Picks

6 September 2017 3:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s crop of honorary Oscar recipients, scheduled to be feted at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ annual Governors Awards ceremony on Nov. 11, represents “the broad spectrum of what we aspire to do with these awards,” newly minted Academy president John Bailey says. “It’s really fascinating to see the breadth of the four honorees and just how different their careers have been.”

Set for recognition are writer-director Charles Burnett (“Killer of Sheep,” “To Sleep with Anger”), cinematographer Owen Roizman (“The French Connection,” “The Exorcist”), actor Donald Sutherland (“Mash,” “Ordinary People”), and director Agnes Varda (“Cleo from 5 to 7,” “The Beaches of Agnes”). It’s the first slate of Governors Awards honorees under Bailey’s watch, after the cinematographer won the reins of the Academy at the organization’s most recent election just under a month ago.

However, Bailey notes that he was “totally agnostic” in the selections, so »

Industry Anxiety at Telluride Proved Even Critics Must Embrace Oscar Hype

6 September 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Film festivals are always a bit of a bubble, but Telluride is an alternate reality. The festival reveals its lineup the day before it starts, and the local “airport” is a very generous way of describing a landing strip attached to a bar. Werner Herzog has coffee at the local bookstore, 300 people excitedly wait in line to see a Chilean thriller about a transgender waitress dealing with her dead lover’s family, and Errol Morris is the subject of more conversations than Donald Trump.

However, even in the Telluride utopia, it became clear that the love of movies is not enough to sustain the art form. Oscar buzz is no longer a luxury; it’s a lifeline.

Here of all places, it should be easy to ignore that the movies are coming off the worst summer box office in 10 years — but reality has a funny way of sneaking through the cracks. »

New Academy President John Bailey is Willing to Ask if Movies Need Theaters For Oscar Qualification, and Other Radical Ideas

6 September 2017 7:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As words like film, negative, celluloid, unspool, and reel become increasingly archaic, even the venerable Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences realizes that it needs to evolve. At the Telluride Film Festival, I sat down with new Academy president John Bailey to discuss what he has in mind. Here’s what we can expect from the 75-year-old cinematographer of “The Big Chill” and “Groundhog Day,” who is proud to be the rare filmmaker representing the Academy board.

(Re)Define the motion picture

Bailey is a realist as much as a cineaste. At Telluride, he appreciated Paul Schrader’s well-reviewed “First Reformed” — but fully supported the possibility that the film would go to Netflix. “It’s very unlikely the studios would pick it up,” said Bailey. “In reality, Netflix and Amazon have now become the studios that have the courage to make the film nobody else would make.”

Joachim Trier’s Ambitious Thriller ‘Thelma’ Is Norway’s Official Foreign-Language Oscar Submission

5 September 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In advance of its international premiere at this month’s upcoming Toronto International Film Festival, Norway has picked director Joachim Trier’s new feature “Thelma” as its official foreign-language Oscar submission. The ambitious thriller just opened last month’s Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund, where it received the Norwegian Film Critics Prize.

The film is Trier’s fourth feature, and his second to make the cut — his 2006 debut “Reprise” was picked to represent his home country, but did not make the final nominations cut. It was picked from a shortlist of candidates, which included Norwegian directors Izer Aliu’s “Hunting Flies” (Fluefangeren) and Jorunn Myklebust Syversen’s “The Tree Feller” (Hoggeren).

In the film, a young Norwegian student moves to Oslo and falls in love with a beautiful classmate. At the same time, she begins to notice her own mystifying and inexplicable connection to the supernatural. It’s a »

Telluride Oscar Watch: Gary Oldman a Sure Bet for ‘Darkest Hour,’ ‘Downsizing’ Mixed

2 September 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Here’s what we’ve learned after one day at the Telluride Film Festival, which draws folks from all over the world to indulge in a Labor Day Weekend ritual of film gorging. Before boarding the Delta charter plane from Lax to Montrose, Colorado, the new Academy president, cinematographer John Bailey, admitted he hasn’t seen Telluride co-director Tom Luddy, or director Paul Schrader, since Schrader’s 1985 film “Mishima.” Schrader’s rigorously elegant “First Reformed,” starring Ethan Hawke in his update of Robert Bresson’s “Diary of a Country Priest,” is looking for a buyer, and distributors are eager to check it out here.

At the high-altitude opening day patron’s brunch, Rebecca Miller cheered on her “Maggie’s Plan” star Greta Gerwig, who is making her directorial debut with “Lady Bird.” Miller is at Telluride with a documentary about her father, playwright Arthur Miller.

After the brunch, so many »
