Vincelette: I've seen only Marion Cotillard, Rosamund Pike and Felicity Jones but so far it's an incredibly strong category. I mean even "it's stylish to hate" Jones is winning-worthy! Pike is mesmerizing and powerful! Cotillard is a revelation! Carlo: No no no. »

Kristen Stewart, Catherine Deneuve make César Award history (photo: Kristen Stewart in 'Clouds of Sils Maria,' with Juliette Binoche) Kristen Stewart and Catherine Deneuve are two 2015 César Award nominees making history. The French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts announced the nominations on Jan. 28, 2015; the César Awards ceremony will take place on Feb. 20, 2015, at Paris' Théâtre du Châtelet. Kristen Stewart is in the running in the Best Supporting Actress category for Clouds of Sils Maria / Sils Maria. Catherine Deneuve has been shortlisted as Best Actress for In the Courtyard / Dans la cour. So, how are Stewart and Deneuve making César history? Well, let's begin with "the expected one": Deneuve. Catherine Deneuve One of the biggest film icons ever, Catherine Deneuve is one of those relatively rare international film superstars who has never bothered with – or needed – a Hollywood career. Deneuve, who turned 71 last October 22, has been »

There is already one "Macbeth" coming this year — you know, the adaptation with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard that's on our list of the 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2015 — but there's always room for another version of the Bard's play, and certainly, if this happens, we'd happily sign on. Baz Bamigboye reports that Martin Scorsese and Kenneth Branaugh have had "informal conversations" about Scorsese making a movie based on Branagh's Manchester International Festival production of "Macbeth." First playing the fest in 2013, it hopped over to New York City last summer, and Scorsese was apparently quite taken with it. The trick of this particular version is that the audience was brought right into the action, sitting literally inches away from the battles, speeches and more, making for a truly immersive experience. So one could see what would be attractive from a filmmaking standpoint to try and bring movie audiences that same sense of. »

A lean, no nonsense film crafted in the most brutally honest style of the Dardennes with a stellar performance by Marion Cotillard. In the Dardenne brothers David vs Goliath drama, Sandra (Marion Cotillard) is a young wife and mother working for a small manufacturing business in Seraing, Belgium. She takes medical leave for a nervous breakdown and is about to return when she hears she has lost her job. She is not notified by the company, she is told by a friend. Unbelievably, and despicably, the company has held an internal vote of the employees of whether to give them all […] »

Kristen Stewart picked up the first nomination for an American actress at France's César Awards since opera singer Julia Migenes' performance in the 1984 film adaptation of "Carmen," nabbing a Best Supporting Actress nod for her role as an aging film star's assistant in Olivier Assayas' "Clouds of Sils Maria." Bertrand Bonello's "Saint Laurent" leads this year's nominations with 10, including Best Film and Best Director. "Les Combattants" (nine), "Timbuktu" (eight), and yet another biopic of the famed French designer, "Yves Saint Laurent" (seven), were also among those lauded by the French Académie today. Stewart's "Sils Maria" co-star Juliette Binoche, Oscar nominee Marion Cotillard ("Two Days, One Night"), and screen legend Catherine Deneuve ("Dans La Cour") all feature in the packed race for Best Actress, while Céline Sciamma's acclaimed "Girlhood" »

It was a battle of Yves Saint Laurent biopics at the Césars (the French Oscars, if you will) this year as both the French foreign language Oscar submission "Saint Laurent" (leader of the pack with 10 nods) and "Yves Saint Laurent" picked up a ton of mentions. Oscar players that popped up include "Two Days, One Night" star Marion Cotillard and animated feature "Song of the Sea." Foreign film Oscar nominee "Timbuktu" also had a major showing. And of course, in the Césars' foreign category, films like "Boyhood," "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "12 Years a Slave" are duking it out. Check out the full list of nominees below, and remember to keep track of it all at The Circuit. Best Film "Les Combattants" "Eastern Boys" "La Famille Bélier" "Saint Laurent" "Hippocrate" "Sils Maria" "Timbuktu" Best Director Céline Sciamma, "Bande De Filles" Thomas Cailley, "Les Combattants" Robin Campillo, "Eastern Boys" Thomas Lilti, »

Glenn here while Nathaniel is travelling back from the wonders of Sundance. I do so enjoy looking at national awards since they paint such a gloriously global view of the film world that most of the American award bodies simply do not even attempt. They're always a good way of finding out about films that may otherwise go unnoticed in the ever-expanding world of film festivals (increasingly the only way to see many of these films, anyway) and a great way of finding the next big thing to which you can tell your friends and colleagues, "I saw them first in that tiny foreign film."
This year's César Awards from France have announced their nominations and it's a handsome looking bunch, even if I've only seen a few of the actual nominees (again, blame those tricky new age distribution methods and diminishing foreign indie market). I was super happy to »

Manuel here. One of my favorite thing about this year’s Oscar nominations was the beautiful artwork that adorned the screen as J.J. Abrams, Alfonso Cuarón, Chris Pine and Cheryl Boone Isaacs read out names like Marion Cotillard, Laura Dern and Dan Gilroy though sadly not Ava DuVernay’s nor David Oyelowo’s (might they have a better chance with their next collaboration, that Katrina murder mystery film?)
As it turns out, the Academy is really upping its game when it comes to art you wish you could hang in your living room. Last year’s ceremony poster was quite the snooze-fest and I have to admit, other than that fantastic Olly Moss’s gorgeous poster from 2012, AMPAS’ artwork as of late has been rather dull. You have to go back to 2007 to find my other recent favorite poster (those quotes!). While the official poster for this year’s Neil Patrick Harris »

France’s Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences unveiled the nominations for this year’s César Awards at its traditional news conference at Le Fouquet’s restaurant on the Champs Elysées on Friday morning.
Biopic Saint Laurent - exploring fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent’s life from 1967 to 1976 - led the pack with 10 nominations including best film, best director for Bonello, best actor for Gaspard Ulliel and best supporting actor for Louis Garrel.
Jalil Lespert’s rival biopic, Yves Saint Laurent, secured seven nominations. While it missed out in the best film and director categories, it scored nods with Pierre Niney for best actor, Charlotte Le Bon for best »
In one of the widest-open Cesar races in recent years, Abderrahmane Sissako’s Oscar-nominated “Timbuktu” will face off for best picture with Olivier Assayas’ “Sils Maria,” Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent” and talked-up newcomer Thomas Cailley’s “Love at First Fight” at France’s 2015 Cesar Awards.
“Timbuktu,” which world premiered at Cannes, earned eight Cesar nominations and will also compete foreign-language Oscar next month.
The Cesar race is dominated by “Saint Laurent” with 10 noms. Coming second is “Love at First Fight,” a performance-driven romantic comedy that proves to be yet another gem discovered by Directors’ Fortnight topper Edouard Waintrop (following last year’s “Me, Myself and Mom,” which ended up winning five Cesar kudos).
Also making the best picture cut, in a nomination line-up underscoring France’s wide production range: Robin Campillo’s “Eastern Boys,” French dramedy blockbuster “La Famille Belier,” helmed by Eric Lartigau, and Thomas Lilti’s admired medical drama “Hippocrates. »

Update, 2:25 Am Pt: Last year’s dueling Yves Saint Laurent biopics each picked up several nominations this morning for France’s César Awards. Bertrand Bonello’s Saint Laurent, the country’s entry for the Foreign Language Oscar, leads the pack with 10 mentions, followed by Thomas Cailley’s Directors’ Fortnight title Les Combattants with nine, and Oscar nominee Timbuktu with eight. Yves Saint Laurent, from helmer Jalil Lespert, took seven nods. Otherwise, there are a number of usual suspects in the batch including Best Actress Oscar nominee Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night, as well as Juliette Binoche for Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria. In something of a departure — and a first — for the French Académie, they nominated American actress Kristen Stewart for her supporting turn in that Cannes competition entry. (Adrien Brody won the Best Actor prize in 2003 for The Pianist.) There are also six nominations for late 2014 release La Famille Bélier. »

"Lost in the Awards Rush" is a new weekly series Slackerwood is running during the awards season, to suggest lesser-known but excellent alternatives to popular frontrunners for big movie awards.
Upon its Broadway debut in 1987, Into the Woods was praised as an innovative, dark, bold and musically astounding work that, to this day, remains unequaled. Naturally, a movie version had to follow of this re-imagining of classic fairy tales and what happens after "happily ever after." Though there were plans for a Rob Reiner-directed movie adaptation featuring Cher, Goldie Hawn, Elijah Wood and Robin Williams in the early '90s, that sadly fell apart -- the notion of bringing a project so well regarded and towering in both story and scope seemed virtually impossible.
Enter Rob Marshall, who successfully brought Chicago (2002) (another seemingly un-adaptable Broadway sensation) to the screen and had set out to work similar wonders with what »

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

Stockholm — Last year, Roy Andersson’s “A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting on Existence” became the first Swedish film to win Venice’s Golden Lion. But on home turf, at Monday’s Swedish Film Gala, it no chance against Ruben Ostlund’s “Force Majeure” one of the most critically acclaimed pics of 2014.
Ostlund individually picked up three of them, best directing, script and editing (together with Jacob Secher Schulsinger) at the awards, which took place at Stockholm Cirkus.
At one of his winning speeches, Ostlund paid homage to his competitor and one of his key sources of inspiration. “Without Roy Andersson and »

Newsflash: We still have awhile before the Oscars. It's like a month away. But we can prepare anyway by revisiting the greatest hits of our leading nominees in the acting categories. Put on your angriest Annette Bening face and join us for this trip into prestige pictures currently streaming on Netflix. "The Kids are All Right" (Julianne Moore) Julianne Moore didn't pick up a nomination, but costars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo did in this family drama (with funny moments) about a lesbian couple attempting to embrace the new-found presence of their kids' sperm donor. "The Kids are All Right" feels like a lost James L. Brooks gem set in 2010, and every performance has endearing and (intentionally) maddening moments. Julianne might play the most conflicted character at all, and she wears that indecision and personal guilt well. "My Week With Marilyn" (Eddie Redmayne) Is this a great movie? No. In fact, »
