Hong Kong — The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts has given pride of place in its international awards category to David O. Russell’s “American Hustle.” The picture was nominated in seven categories, including best film, ahead of “12 Years A Slave” with six nominations.
The Aacta international awards are separate from the organization’s domestic awards for Australian film and TV works, and are intended to be part of the Oscar race. The winners will be revealed in Los Angeles on Friday Jan. 10, 2014, less than a week ahead of the Academy Award nominations announcement on Jan. 16.

While Aussie Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" is unlikely to nab any above-the-line Oscar nominations in the upcoming awards season--tech noms are a possibility, of course--it's scoring across the board at the Australian Oscars, with nominations announced Tuesday. "Gatsby" landed 14 nods, leading the pack with a Best Picture nod, and Acting nods for stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki and Isla Fisher. In terms of winning Best Picture, "Gatsby" has Kim Mordaunt's coming-of-age tale "The Rocket" to contend with, also Australia's official entry for the stateside Foreign-Language Oscar race. The full list of Australian Academy Award nominees is here. »

At present, Baz Luhrmann's spring hit "The Great Gatsby" has at least two Oscar nominations in the bag: bids for Production and Costume Design are assured, and it could well win both. Other tech nods are feasible, but while Warner Bros. are putting the campaign dollars in, above-the-line nominations seem unlikely. At the Australian Academy Awards, however, it's a different story: the blockbuster scored a leading 14 nods, including Best Picture and a quintet of acting citations for Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki and Isla Fisher. (Sorry, Tobey.) I suspect it'll lose out to Australia's heartwarming Oscar submission "The »

Baz Luhrmann's rollicking reinterpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic The Great Gatsby leads the nominees for the third annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (Aacta) honors, scoring a total of 14 nominations in virtually all categories, including best film and best director. Stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan both picked up best acting nominations, while Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki and Isla Fisher all scooped nominations in the supporting actor and actress categories. On the other end of the scale from Luhrmann's big budget, star-studded 3D spectacle is The Rocket. Kim Mordaunt's Laotian-language drama is Australia's entry

There are many things I’m still not over when it comes to the 2011 film Warrior. I’m still not over how freaking good Tom Hardy was. I’m still not over how it did not receive the amount of praise it deserved. I’m still not over the fact that there’s a large number of people who have no idea what film I’m talking about right now. But most of all, I’m still not over the ending of the film.
For those of you who haven’t seen it, I just checked, and it’s on Netflix, »

Earlier this year it seemed as though we were reporting on cast shuffles and director changes every single day concerning Jane Got A Gun. The Natalie Portman starring western eventually settled down, and now we’ve been given a release date. The film, now directed by Gavin O’Connor, will be released on 29th August 2014. This means it will be going up against horrors The Loft and Jessabelle, so a decent western could be a nice change at the box-office.
Jane Got A Gun stars Portman as a woman who requires the help of an ex-lover after her husband returns home riddled with bullets with outlaws hot in pursuit. Joel Edgerton will play Portman’s ex-lover with Ewan McGregor on villain duties.

Briefly: Relativity has announced and confirmed a release date for the film Jane Got a Gun, an action-western directed by Gavin O'Connor starring Natalie Portman. The production has been troubled, with big delays and creative issues with the previous director, Lynne Ramsay. Actors walked off of set, everything was temporarily shut down, but eventually they got a crew together to finish and filming wrapped. Despite all the troubles, Relativity Media is still planning to release the film and has officially set an August 29th, 2014 late summer release next year (same day as horrors The Loft & Jessabelle). Synopsis: A woman asks her ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him. Stay tuned for more.

Almost miraculously given its troubled production history, Natalie Portman's "Jane Got a Gun" has been given a release date. The Gavin O'Connor-directed western, which also stars Joel Edgerton, Ewan McGregor and Noah Emmericah, has been slated to hit theaters on August 29, 2014, it was announced today. O'Connor ("Warrior") came aboard the project at the last minute after original director Lynne Ramsay ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") declined to show up for the first day of filming back in March. Early this month the film's producers (a group that includes Portman) filed a lawsuit against Ramsay which alleges, among other »

Action western Jane Got a Gun, starring Natalie Portman, has had so many casting and directing change-overs that one feared it would never hit the big screen. Michael Fassbender was originally attached to star as Jane’s ex-lover Dan Frost, but had to leave to film X-Men: Days of Future Past. Joel Edgerton was cast as another character but then replaced Fassbender. Director Lynne Ramsay then cast Jude Law as Edgerton’s replacement.
However, a week later, just as production was about to start, Ramsay left, as did Law and cinematographer Darius Khondji. Director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) replaced Ramsay and Bradley Cooper replaced Law early last spring. One month later, Cooper dropped out to finish American Hustle and Ewan McGregor came onto the project, the fourth actor to take the part of John Bishop.
Oh, and to make matters ever crazier, the film’s producers sued Ramsay, explaining that »

For cinephiles, the behind-the-scenes drama on the revisionist western Jane Got a Gun will overshadow the film until at least the first trailer. Natalie Portman stars as a woman who must call on an ex-lover to help defend her farm and injured outlaw husband from the husband's gang. Michael Fassbender was going to play the ex-lover and Joel Edgerton was to play the gang leader. Then Fassbender left because of a scheduling conflict, Edgerton moved to the ex-lover role, and Jude Law signed on to play the villain. Then matters got crazier when director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk about Kevin) unexpectedly dropped out on the first day of shooting, and the production scrambled for a replacement. They got Gavin O'Connor (Warrior), but then Law left because he wanted to work with Ramsay. Bradley Cooper came on to play the villain, then he left, and finally the production landed on Ewan McGregor. »
