23 January 2015 5:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

One of the great things about awards season is that it provides a rich field for statistic analysis. Attentive viewers can use the Golden Globes (the first major awards show of the season) and SAG Awards (the second) as a sort of predictive measure for the major acting awards at the Oscars. We looked at the Oscar-nominated roles in the four major acting categories (sorry, Jen and Naomi), and cut out anyone who didn't win or get nominated for a Golden Globe and a SAG. Then, we went back five years (because any more than that is insane - who are we, »

15 January 2015 10:41 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Gaumont and Lgm, which partnered on Cesar-winning comedy hit “My, Myself and Mum,” are back on board with “We Were Young,” a ensemble dramedy by Philippe Guillard (“Jo’s Boy”).

Co-producing and handling international sales, Gaumont will unveil the project at the Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris. 

The film will star Kad Merad (“The Chorus”), Benoît Magimel (“Little White Lies”), Charles Berling (“What’s in a Name?”) and Vincent Moscato (“Ruby & Quentin”) as middle-aged friends who set off to fulfill their teenage dreams. 

Gaumont is pitching “We Were Young” as a feel-good and tender ode to friendship in the spirit of “Little White Lies” and “The Barbarian Invasions.”

The French release is scheduled for the second quarter of 2015. 

Guillard’s last film, “Jo’s Boy” (“Le fils a Jo”), a tightly budgeted drama starring Olivier Marchal, was a sleeper hit in France, where it earned an estimated $9.3 million.

Managing Editor 

J.K. Simmons’ portrayal of a vicious and relentless instructor at a music conservatory in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash has propelled Simmons as a frontrunner in the supporting actor Oscar race since the film’s premiere at Sundance. He received the Spotlight Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 3 and was nominated for a Golden Globe, which will be distributed on Jan. 11.

Simmons likely will earn his first Oscar nomination on Jan. 15 and if he wins on Feb. 22, he will become the eighth supporting actor in the last 14 years to win for his first nomination.

In the past 14 years, 50 percent (seven of 14) of supporting actors and 64 percent (nine of 14) of supporting actresses were never nominated before winning their first Oscar.

Last year’s winners, Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years a Slave (2013), were both first-time nominees. Leto »
