Exclusive Interview: Warwick Davis & Special Make Effects Legend Nick Dudman at the Harry Potter Studio Tour

10 April 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Last week, I got to attend the press junket for the new Harry Potter Studio Tour at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire. As well as talking with many of the cast of the movies (see previous interviews here), we got to chat with the a man who makes all the creatures possible and also a man who ended up being one (or two actually) of those creatures. The men in question would be Warwick Davis who played Griphook and Professor Flitwick and Nick Dudman who is credited as Creature Effects Supervisor and Makeup Designer but that only scratches the surface,  as Nick (along with his extensive team) is the man who brings all these creatures to life in so many ways.

During the interview, I find out how they feel about opening the doors to all the secrets of their movie making process and also which is their favourite of all »

Exclusive Interview – Natalia Tena talks Harry Potter Studio Tour in The Weasley Kitchen

Last week, I had the honour and the privilege to go along to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter to have a good old natter with some of the cast of the eight movies and with a few of the Production team that make these amazing films possible. If you’ve not heard of the Studio Tour, then you’ve obviously not been on HeyUGuys for a little while as I’ve been banging on about how amazing it is for months now.

London’s newest attraction opened its doors on Saturday 31st March (see our red carpet interviews here) but the day before, I went along to the Studio once again to interview cast members Tom Felton, Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch, Natalia Tena, Warwick Davis and Production Team members Nick Dudman (Creature and Makeup Effects) and John Richardson (Special effects).

'Hugo,' 'Harry Potter' Top Saturn Award Nominees

29 February 2012 11:25 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Awards season may have come and gone, but sci-fi fans still have something to look forward to with today's announcement of the Saturn Award nominees.

The awards, presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, recognize excellence in these genres, which are often underrepresented at other awards shows.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this year's big movie contenders are "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," "Hugo," tied with 10 nominations each.

A number of the movies scoring big have been commercial successes but have not received awards show love, including J.J. Abrams' $260-million grossing monster hit "Super 8," which nabbed eight nominations, and "Captain America: The First Avenger," which earned nearly $400 million worldwide, coming in with six.

One of the most surprising cross-genre hits is Woody Allen's romantic comedy "Midnight in Paris," which took home the award for Best Original Screenplay at Sunday's Oscars, in »

The 84th Annual Academy Award Winners

27 February 2012 8:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The 84th Annual Academy Awards ended up being one of the most entertaining Academy Award shows that I've seen in years, even though films I wanted to win didn't. I was rooting for Martin Scorsese and Hugo this year, but I knew that The Artist would end up taking home a majority of the big awards. In the end, each one of these films took home 5 Awards, Hugo took home the more technical ones though. I think it was a pretty easy year to predict the winners.

It was great to see Billy Crystal back up on stage; he really did a great job bringing light, fun entertainment that everyone could enjoy. Crystal was awesome and one of the best parts of the show. The guy is classic comedy. He helped bring back everything that the Oscars should be.

Here's the full list of nominees with the winners in bold. »

84th Academy Awards Winners – The Artist Takes Best Picture

27 February 2012 1:26 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Crowded House said it best in the lyrics “Hey now, hey now, don’t dream its over.” Yes, the awards season officialy came to an end tonight at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Hollywood, CA. Tears, jubilation, substance and style were all memorable moments at the 84th Academy Awards hosted by Billy Crystal. With Sacha Baron Cohen’s shenanigans earlier on the red carpet and no huge upsets, Cirque du Soleil’s performance was the highlight of the evening.

The Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the Year went to “The Artist” produced by Thomas Langmann and Michel Hazanavicius won for Achievement in Directing. The movie becomes the first silent film to take the gold since the original Oscar ceremony 83 years ago when Wings won.

Christopher Plummer was the winner for a Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for his role in “Beginners”; Octavia Spencer, was the »

Oscar Predictions 2012: Foreign Film, Screenplay, Animated

26 February 2012 2:04 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Daniel Radcliffe, Ralph Fiennes in David Yates' Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Oscar 2012 Predictions: Best Picture, Director, Acting Categories The Best Foreign Film Language winner is always a puzzle, as only a small percentage of Academy voters cast ballots in that category. That leaves room for some surprising — sometimes downright bizarre — choices. Asghar Farhadi's A Separation has been winning awards just about everywhere (though it lost the BAFTA to Pedro Almodóvar's The Skin I Live In). We're tempted to have it as our pick as well, but we're going out on a limb by selecting Philippe Falardeau's more sentimental Monsieur Lazhar from Canada. We'll see. Best Adapted Screenplay will definitely go to Alexander Payne, Jim Rash, and Nat Faxon for The Descendants. We believe the Best Original Screenplay will go to Woody Allen for Midnight in Paris, though a Michel Hazanavicius win for »

Tomorrow is the day where the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences celebrates the movies. We’ve waited all year and its finally here. By the time host Billy Crystal delivers his last punchline and concludes the 84th Academy Awards, the evening will have seen many celebrity-presenters appear on the Oscar stage at the Kodak Theatre.

Actor in a Leading Role

Demián Bichir in .A Better Life.

George Clooney in .The Descendants.

Jean Dujardin in .The Artist.

Gary Oldman in .Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Brad Pitt in .Moneyball.

Clooney’s performance was like none other he’s given before and with Slumdog MillionaireNatalie Portman (Black Swan) and Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart), Fox Searchlight is on a roll. However, The Artist’s Dujardin will take home his first Academy Award.

Possible upset – Brad Pitt is an all around good guy »

84th Academy Awards – Glenn Close & Meryl Streep Make Surprise Appearances At Makeup Artists And Hairstylists Symposium

25 February 2012 5:46 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Academy’s Oscar Week culminated in a sold-out public event at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater celebrating the achievement of the nominees in the Hair and Makeup category hosted by Branch Governor Leonard Engelman. This is one of my favorite symposiums of Oscar Week and AMPAS really outdid themselves this year when they surprised the audience with the appearances of Meryl Streep and Glenn Close. Met with standing ovations, the actresses spent a lot of time on Saturday in support of the Hair and Makeup nominees behind The Iron Lady and Albert Nobbs. Close, Streep and the teams discussed the colloborative processes and presented film clips, photographs and models of their work.

24 February 2012 3:38 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Each year, the Oscars recognize A-list talent we regularly see on screen, on the red carpet, and in tabloids. But the Academy Awards also reward those who work behind the scenes: the writers, editors, costume designers, and others who help create trophy-worthy movie magic. This Oscars season, we’ll be toasting those off-screen artists by delving into the hidden secrets that helped create the on-screen magic that we — and the Academy — fell in love with.

Oscar Predictions: Best Makeup

Mark Coulier and J. Roy Helland reaped their first Best Makeup bid for transforming Meryl Streep into Margaret Thatcher at various ages from her forties to her eighties in "The Iron Lady." Four years ago, the makeup artists who turned Marion Cotillard into Edith Piaf for  "La Vie en Rose" won this award.  None of the first seven films in the "Harry Potter" merited mention in this category. That does not bode well for the chances of first-time contenders Nick Dudman, Amanda Knight and Lisa Tomblin. Make Your Oscar Predictions: What Will Win Best Makeup?
