It's my first time attending the Oscars – here's my wishlist for the night | Peter Bradshaw

4 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Will La La Land clean up? Will the stars come out against Trump’s travel ban? And will Ryan Seacrest give a certain debonair British film critic the red carpet moment he deserves?

I have to admit that I am rather excited about the 2017 Oscars ceremony. Because this year, for the first time in its history, the ceremony’s dinner-jacketed audience is to include … me. After years of pining, Cinderella-like, at home in London, or watching the ceremony in the office, mashing Pringles and Diet Coke into the gaps between the laptop keys, I have been invited to the ball. Stepping daintily out of the Uber that has transported me from the Econo Lodge in Burbank, I get to go on the red carpet — apparently a brief and heavily policed admission with a herd of other overseas, overexcited bozos — and then I get to sit in the theatre, way up in the “nosebleed” seats. »

With blue jeans cuffed above sparkly sling-back heels, the bespectacled star is relaxed but focused as she tries out the lines she’ll deliver from the Dolby stage at the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday.

Not surprisingly, presenter duo and BFFs Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone soon up the goofball game. “Oh jeez!” says Stone when she realizes the microphone is on and her words are echoing throughout the auditorium.

18 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There's a reason why La La Land is expected to win big at the 89th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday.

Already taking home a win at the Costume Designers Guild Awards earlier this week, the film's costume designer, Mary Zophres, is nominated for Best Costume Design at the Oscars, just one of the musical's impressive 14 nominations.

And while Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's performances were nothing short of amazing, mixed with Damien Chazelle's direction, a catchy soundtrack and dreamy cinematography, fans haven't been able to stop gushing over the stunning, elegant ensembles displayed onscreen -- Stone's, specifically.

Running the Maze: "Arrival" and the Cinema of Denis Villeneuve

23 hours ago | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

When we last saw Denis Villeneuve, with 2015's Sicario, Anthony Lane began his review for The New Yorker with a pair of blunt questions: "What does Denis Villeneuve do for fun? Does he know what fun is?" Lane's tone was more bemused than derisive, but he has a point: Villeneuve's cinematic world is grim, full of sickly color tints, sterile or impersonal settings, ominous silences broken by rattling gunfire, a pervasive atmosphere of doom, and protagonists who comport themselves like wide-eyed lambs on their way to the slaughter. After all, his are films where a lonely Emily Blunt can't meet a man at a bar and a bored Jake Gyllenhaal can't rent a movie without both turning into paranoid nightmares. "Sometimes it's best not to know," a weary witness tells the heroine of Villeneuve's Incendies (2010), a time-shifting French-Canadian mystery that picked up an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Film and »

Ranking All the Best Picture Nominees — By How Hard They’ll Make You Cry

25 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When it comes to the Oscar-nominated films that make up the ceremony’s Best Picture category, it’s more than likely every contender will fit at least one of these four groups: Biopics, devastating true life stories of people overcoming adversity, soaring movie-musicals, and the type of film with one scene that will leave you shamelessly ugly-crying in the theater.

Of course, not all of this year’s Best Picture nominees are guaranteed to make you sob in public (and if you do, we’re not judging) but if you’ve got a limited amount of tissues at your disposal, »

Review: "Arrival" (2016) Starring Amy Adams And Jeremy Renner; Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Format

24 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

When it comes to sci-fi films I will admit that I'm generally turned off by plots that involve peace-loving aliens who come to earth to help us lead better lives. I'd much rather have some insidious creatures with ray guns who are seemingly invulnerable as they try to pulverize mankind. Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "E.T." were certainly landmark films with much to admire about them, but I'm generally more in the mood to watch his terrific remake of "War of the Worlds" in which we learned that if demonic aliens are to take on humanity, they apparently are going to start the attack in Bayonne, New Jersey.  Director Denis Villeneuve's acclaimed Oscar-nominated film "Arrival" manages to convey enough ambiguity about the motives of visiting aliens to build genuine suspense. The film is the latest in a long line that refreshingly »

How to Look Long and Lean, According to Amy Adams' Pilates Pro

If you've ever taken a Pilates class before, you know that the workout is no joke. A session with celeb instructor Nonna Gleyze, however, will have your body do more than just sweat—it's body calibration. At the personal request of director Tom Ford, the Pilates pro whipped the stars of the Oscar-nominated film Nocturnal Animals, including Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Armie Hammer, into tip-top shape (yes, she's even named in the end credits). "The goal with them was to make sure they all looked good on film, so we did a lot of elongating posture-focused exercises," elaborated the expert.

Who Should Win the 2017 Oscars? How Variety’s Critics Would Vote

24 February 2017 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The ballots are in, and the Oscars are but days away. Variety critics Peter Debruge, Owen Gleiberman, and Guy Lodge may not be Academy members, but if they were, here’s how they would have voted in the top eight categories.

Peter Debruge

Best Picture: “Moonlight.” Nothing against “La La Land,” whose realist take on contemporary romance brings a welcome edge to the fizzy old-fashioned song-and-dance format, but “Moonlight” marks the artistic breakthrough here — and not just because the Oscars (and the industry at large) have been #sowhite for #solong. Barry Jenkins’ superb portrait of a lonely young man seeking connection in Miami focuses audiences’ attention on the sort of character the movies so often marginalize — or overlook entirely — and makes the specificity of his experience feel universal. I ranked “Hell or High Water” one notch higher on my year-end top 10, but that movie is too similar to 2008 winner “No Country for Old Men »

Amy Adams’ ‘Arrival’ Flies Past $100M; 3rd Oscar Best Picture Nominee To Hit Mark

24 February 2017 9:32 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

It’s been quite a ride for Arrival, the sci-fi movie starring Amy Adams that Paramount scooped up close to three years ago at the Cannes Film Festival for a record $20 million. As we forecasted last month, the Denis Villeneuve-directed movie was destined to hit the century mark before Oscar night, becoming the third Best Picture nominee this year to do so after 20th Century Fox’s Hidden Figures (currently $146.9M) and Lionsgate’s La La Land ($136.2M).

Oscar Predictions: Who Will Win vs. Who Should Win

23 February 2017 7:39 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Academy Awards are upon us! Join us as we discuss our Oscar picks and those nominees which deserve to win the most.

There are currently almost 6,000 members in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). These people are professionals who have worked in the film industry and every year it is their votes which decide the films and individuals which receive Oscar nominations. Each member will select 5 nominees in the category of their work, and they also select nominees for best picture. These votes are tabulated and the people and films that get the most votes end up with the nominations, which are then voted on again by the Academy to select the winners.

It’s not an easy task to sift through hundreds of films a year to determine which ones are the “best”. Consider that each of the nearly 6,000 voters this year brings their own »

Denis Villeneuve on Why an Actor Is Like a Planet

23 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Arrival” is perhaps the year’s most unlikely Oscar contender, a science fiction hit earning eight nominations including best picture, director, adapted screenplay, and cinematography. The storytelling sophistication, thematic maturity, and philosophical depth of “Arrival” serves as a reminder of the creative possibilities of sci-fi, catapulting a genre often ignored by mainstream awards into a new stratosphere. This feat is due in no small part to French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, who guides the film with the surety of hand and he displayed in his prior tightly-wound features, “Prisoners” and “Sicario.” Beneath its existential exploration of heady concepts like language, communication, time, fate, and free will, “Arrival” has a resonant emotional core, so casting the right actors was tantamount. “Because of the quality of [Eric Heisserer’s] screenplay,” Villeneuve tells Backstage, “it was not a difficult project to cast.”  Villeneuve knew exactly which actor he wanted to carry the story’s weight. “Amy Adams »
