Good news for bands like U2 as Oscar rule changes take effect

27 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Academy has announced its official rule changes today, on the heels of a release earlier this week that addressed campaign strictures. Key changes have been made in a number of categories, including Best Picture, Best Original Song and the acting fields. On the latter, production companies must now limit eligibility to a maximum of 10 actors and 10 actresses for each film and must submit those names on the Official Screen Credits form. The annual reminder list sent to members of the Academy will now list actors and actresses separately for each film, and as always, members of the branch will still decide on category placement (lead vs. supporting) themselves. The Best Picture category has always dealt with the give and take of producer credits. First there was a limit of three producers to be eligible for the nomination, then an approved extension to four in certain instances. Now — to help mitigate some of that, »

List of 2014 Oscar Winners!

3 March 2014 11:30 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The 86th annual Academy Awards were really fun to watch. Ellen Degeneres did a fantastic job hosting, and I enjoyed the show she put on. It was also insanely predictable, at least, for me it was. Overall, I'm happy with all of the films that won. My favorite win of the the night was Spike Jonze taking home the Oscar for Best Original screenplay for Her. That was such an amazing movie, and I really wanted it to win that award, but I wasn't sure it would happen. My favorite speech of the night came from Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey. I was never really a big fan of his, but over the last couple of years he has sure blown up into an amazing actor who has starred in some really incredible films. Then that speech he gave last night won me over, and now I'm on team McConaughey. »

Gravity Wins 7 Academy Awards; 12 Years A Slave Takes Best Picture – 86th Oscars

2 March 2014 9:29 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After a lengthy awards season that lasted three long months, the race for the Oscars came to a conclusion tonight at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

This year’s 86th Academy Awards saw a split between Best Picture and Director. 12 Years A Slave won three, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o.

Backstage, producer/actor Brad Pitt said, “ I love this movie.  I ‑‑ just as a film, as a lover of film, the filmmaking, the ‑‑ this heroic story of a man in this inhumane situation trying to get back to his family.  I love this film.  I love the filmmaking.  It’s counterintuitive to the way we’re making films today.  It’s a real achievement by Mr. McQueen here.  I love this movie.  I think it’s important.  I think it’s important because it deals with our history that we haven »

"12 Years a Slave" Wins Best Picture at Predictable But Entertaining Oscars!

2 March 2014 5:52 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

And in the end, it was a predictable Oscar night! The frontrunners were true frontrunners with "12 Years a Slave" taking home the Best Picture trophy while "Gravity" won all technical awards. In the acting categories, Cate Blanchett won Best Actress, Matthew McConaughey was awarded the Best Actor trophy, while Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o received the Supporting Actor and Actress awards, respectively.

I think Ellen did a great job hosting the award, and the best musical performer for me was Pink singing "Over the Rainbow" in tribute to "The Wizard of Oz."

And here are the winners of the granddaddy of the Awards Season -- the 2014 Oscars:

Actor in a Leading Role

Christian Bale in .American Hustle.

Bruce Dern in .Nebraska.

Leonardo DiCaprio in .The Wolf of Wall Street.

Chiwetel Ejiofor in .12 Years a Slave.

Winner: Matthew McConaughey in .Dallas Buyers Club.

Deadline’s Oscars Blog: ‘12 Years A Slave’, ‘Gravity’ And Boredom Reign Supreme

2 March 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Here we are again after the Golden Globes,  Mike Fleming and Anita Busch taking on the task of play by play during the most wide-open Oscar race we can remember. Even on the party circuit, industry insiders who usually have a grasp of who’ll walk away with Oscars were evenly torn between Alfonso Cuaron’s 3D masterpiece Gravity and Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave. Then again, there were so many terrific films that got Best Picture nominations, and all of them have at least a puncher’s chance at an upset. Related: Oscars: Pete Hammond’s Absolute Final Predictions That includes American Hustle, where David O Russell co-wrote the Best Original Script nominee with Eric Warren Singer and got tour de force performances and nominations for Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Perfs so strong there was no room on the nomination roster for perennial Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner. »

Repost: My Complete 2014 Oscar Predictions!

28 February 2014 5:43 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Oscar nominations for the 86th Academy Awards have been announced but who will win and who should win? In a banner year for great movies, 2013 gave us thought-provoking and entertaining experience at the cinema. On Oscar night, Steve McQueen.s .12 Years a Slave. will take home the top prize but Alfonso Cuaron.s .Gravity. will win all the technical awards including Best Director. Quite fitting since one provoked (.12 Years.) and the other entertained (.Gravity.).

And for those who know me, the Academy Awards is my Super Bowl! I.m a nerd when it comes to the Oscars! So I tried to predict the winners to help you with your Oscar pool.

And here's my complete and utterly fearless 2014 Oscar predictions:

Actor in a Leading Role

Christian Bale in .American Hustle.

Bruce Dern in .Nebraska.

Leonardo DiCaprio in .The Wolf of Wall Street.

Chiwetel Ejiofor in .12 Years a Slave.

Oscar Predictions 2014

28 February 2014 9:19 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Contributed by Michelle McCue, Melissa Thompson and Gary Salem

Funny how fast an Oscar season goes by… only last year Argo was being given the Academy Award for Best Picture. The big night is almost here and nothing about this year’s Academy Awards is a sure bet. With so much time between the nominations in January, the various guild awards and the Olympics thrown in, the 6,028 AMPAS voters have had a long time to mull things, and their votes, over.

The winner’s acceptance speeches at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actor Guild Awards (SAG) and the British Academy Awards (BAFTA) have never been more important as they have during this past month and a half. Voting for the Oscars closed on Tuesday, February 25, at 5 p.m.

Even the avid pundits are in a muddle and would give their eye teeth to see the final tallies. Will hopefuls Leto, »

28 Oscar Experts predict 'Frozen' will win Best Song, two favor U2

27 February 2014 7:57 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

All but two of our 30 Oscar Experts are predicting that "Let It Go" from "Frozen" will win Best Song at the Oscars on Sunday. That support gives first-time nominees Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez leading odds of 2/13 to win an Academy Award. If that happens, Robert will attain Egot status having already won at the Emmys, Grammys, and Tonys previously. He would be the 12th person to join that exclusive club and also, at age 39, the youngest by several years. Rita Moreno completed her Egot at age 45. Tariq Khan (Fox News) and Michael Musto (Gawker, Out.com) are the only Experts predicting "Ordinary Love" from "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" to prevail. That song sits in second place with odds of 10/1 of pulling off an upset. The four members of rock band U2 (Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen) are nominated for the second time (the other was for »

Oscars Lowdown 2014: Best Original Song - U2 looks to upend Disney's 'Frozen'

25 February 2014 11:16 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the lead-up to the 86th annual Academy Awards on March 2, HitFix will be bringing you the lowdown on all 24 Oscar categories with multiple entries each day. Take a few notes and bone up on the competition as we give you the edge in your office Oscar pool! The Best Original Song category enjoyed a hell of a lot more attention this season than it likely ever has as "Alone Yet Not Alone"-gate was a blight and an embarrassment. Not entirely for the composer of the song, mind you, who waged a one-man email campaign to get fellow branch members to vote for the track, but also for the Academy, which decided that disqualified the song, making it the only instance of a nomination being revoked due to perceived campaign malpractice in the Oscars' 85-year history. Given what happens under the hood every single season, if the Academy wants to go down that road, »

U2 on the ‘Ordinary Love’ of Nelson Mandela

22 February 2014 5:13 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

It will come as a surprise to many that the four members of U2 – Bono (vocals and guitar),The Edge (guitar, keyboards and vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar) and Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion), who are nominated for the best original song Oscar for “Ordinary Love” in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom – have been writing and performing music about South Africa since the late 1970s, when they were still in their teens. I learned as much last week during a fascinating and candid conversation with the Irish rockers in New York, video of which The Hollywood Reporter is pleased to exclusively premiere in this post.

Jimmy Fallon Is Right at Home on 'The Tonight Show'

18 February 2014 5:39 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Other than a revamped studio, a Spike Lee-directed opening sequence and a jazzy, funkified new theme song, the debut episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon bore a striking resemblance to its recently concluded Late Night incarnation. And why shouldn't it? So much of what made Late Night With Jimmy Fallon such a success was the 39-year-old host's sheer enjoyment of every facet of his job – and a happy Jimmy Fallon is a New York Jimmy Fallon. For the first time in 42 years, The Tonight Show has returned to its original home base, »
