The Artist dances to front of 2012 Golden Globe Awards nominations

15 December 2011 4:52 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Steven Spielberg'S epic and already Oscar-tipped War Horse is among the nominations for best drama at the 2012 Golden Globes.

Leading the way is The Artist, a tribute to the era of silent movies. It has garnered six nods at the awards, which are seen as a pointer for possible Oscars success.

The contenders were unveiled earlier today. Tied for second place in the number of nominations are The Help and The Descendants. Both are up for best drama, with George put forward for best dramatic actor for his portrayal of a dad trying to reconnect with his daughters in The Descendants, and The Help earning acting nominations for Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain.

For the acting prize, George will compete against Ryan, who is nominated for The Ides of March, in which Clooney also starred.

Gosling has a second nomination for best musical or comedy actor for the romance Crazy, »

Complete Bresson Retrospective to Tour North America

13 December 2011 8:54 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The Poetry of Precision: The Films of Robert Bresson will be the first complete retrospective of Bresson's work in North America in 14 years. Tiff Cinematheque has announced today that the series "features a restored print of his acclaimed first feature Les Anges du péché (1943), a metaphysical thriller set in a convent, and new prints of key titles struck especially for the occasion of this retrospective such as the controversial Le Diable probablement (1977), which was prohibited to viewers under the age of eighteen in France as an incitement to suicide; A Man Escaped (1956), a work of resolute beauty that rigorously elevates the gruelling routines of prison life; Four Nights of a Dreamer (1971), legendary for being unavailable in North America for almost two decades; and his last masterpiece, L'Argent (1983), a terse and chilling indictment of capitalism and modernity."

While the retrospective will run at Tiff Bell Lightbox from February 9 through March 18, it'll »

‘Tyrannosaur’ Wins British Indies; Europe Names ‘Melancholia’ Best Film

4 December 2011 3:16 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of the most overlooked films of the year is finally getting some recognition. We loved it at Sundance and then again, as we gave it another look with its limited theatrical release, but it seems to have mostly exited theaters. Paddy Considine‘s Tyrannosaur, along with Lars von Trier‘s Melancholia, have each received their well-deserved due, with the latter taking the top prize at the European Film Awards and the former grabbing top honors at the British Independent Film Award Winners.

At the indie awards, Richard Ayoade took home the best screenplay award for the wonderful Submarine, likely one of the only awards this under-appreciated gem will get. It is also nice to see Senna get best documentary after the Academy Awards snubbed it on their shortlist. As for the Euro awards, The King’s Speech received the most recognition along with Melancholia. There wasn’t anything too »

Melancholia takes Best Film at the European Film Awards

4 December 2011 9:16 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The 24th annual European Film Awards took place in Berlin last night, with Lars von Trier's Melancholia taking home the top honour, Best European Film, along with the Carlo di Palma European Cinematographer Award (Manuel Alberto Claro) and Best Production Design (Jette Lehmann).

However, von Trier lost out on the gong for Best Director to fellow Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier (In a Better World), while Melancholia stars Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg were also overlooked for Best Actress, with Tilda Swinton receiving the award for her work in Lynne Ramsay's hard-hitting drama We Need to Talk About Kevin. Further British success came in the form of Colin Firth, who added the Best European Actor gong to his impressive collection of accolades for The King's Speech, which of course includes Best Actor at the 83rd Academy Awards back in February of this year, while Stephen Frears was the recipient »

Euro Film Award Winners

3 December 2011 9:05 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

While American film critics circles orgs and associations prep their year end "best" reveals, let's hop overseas for a moment. The European Film Awards were held in Berlin, Germany yesterday. It was a very good day to be Danish.

Though Mads Mikkelsen (left) is often seen in American and British films he frequently headlines Danish films too and was honored with a world cinema tribute. Lars von Trier, the maddest prince of Denmark since Hamlet, won the top prize for Melancholia. Though von Trier lost Best Director, he lost it to fellow Dane Susanne Bier who recently also won the Oscar (Best Foreign Language Film, In A Better World.) All three were born within a nine year span in Copenhagen!

Documentary Pina (Wim Wenders)

‘The King’s Speech’ & ‘Melancholia’ Win Big At The European Film Awards

3 December 2011 6:53 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The European Film Awards winners have little influence if none on the award ceremonies stateside, but it’s still interesting to note the differences between the European picks and those by the Americans. Tonight the award ceremony presented their winners and Melancholia tied Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech as the big winners, each taking three awards. I’m not sure why The King’s Speech qualifies as a 2011 contender, considering it was released in the UK before it ever hit North American shores in 2010, but the same can be asked about Susanne Bier’s In A Better World.

Below is the complete list of winners.

Melancholia Tops European Film Awards, Lars von Trier Bypassed, Colin Firth Beats Jean Dujardin [Photo: Stephen Frears.] The Artist, a favorite for the 2012 Oscar, won a single Efa Award: Best European Composer, Ludovic Bource, who thanked the film's perky dog, Uggie, for providing the necessary inspiration.
