The Stanley Kramer Award was established in 2002 to honour “a production, producer or other individuals whose achievement or contribution illuminates and raises public awareness of important social issues.”  

Loving centres on Richard and Mildred Loving, the real-life interracial couple whose marriage in 1958 was opposed by the state of Virginia, prompting them to take their civil rights case all the way to the Us Supreme Court. 2017 will mark the 50th anniversary of their victorious case, Loving vs. Virginia.

10 Best Films of 2016: IndieWire Awards Editor Anne Thompson Gives Her Picks

10 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Most film critics who post annual 10 Best lists follow simple rules, and I am no exception — include a few likely Oscar contenders, a few popular hits, and at least one arcane title from the wild blue yonder, either foreign or up-and-coming indie, presented in short readable blurbs. (No photo gallery here.)

And yes, while I keep to a pure Top 10, I do cheat a bit with some extra categories below. So shoot me.

1. “The Jungle Book

Jon Favreau and screenwriter Justin Marks took Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of Mowgli and his brothers and, with help from James Cameron and Martin Scorsese’s go-to VFX master Rob Legato, created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi). Maybe Favreau makes it look too easy. This isn’t fantasy-world “Avatar.” This is digital India. He calls up fond memories of Disney’s 1967 animated musical, »

PopPolitics: How ‘Loving’ Took on New Relevance After the Presidential Election (Listen)

7 December 2016 1:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Loving” director Jeff Nichols acknowledges that moviegoers may see the film in a different light following the recent presidential race and the election of Donald Trump.

The movie is about the marriage of Richard and Mildred Loving (played by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga) whose union was illegal in Virginia until they challenged the state’s law prohibiting biracial nuptials. That led to the landmark Supreme Court decision in Loving vs. Virginia, which struck down miscegenation laws across the country.

The movie began its release on Nov. 4, just days before the election in which issues of race and gender were front and center.

Oscar Predictions With 3 Months to Go: Emma Stone, Natalie Portman & the Best Best Actress Race in Years

5 December 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Until the envelopes are opened and the newest class of Oscar winners is officially named on Feb. 26, 2017, everything is just a guess. But with three months to go until the Academy Awards, most of the qualifying films are in theaters or screening for critics and the night's so-called big six are beginning to look a little clearer. As the countdown to the big night begins, here's where our predictions stand:

Best Picture

Etonline

Predictions:

1. Arrival

2. Fences

3. Hidden Figures

4. Jackie

5. La La Land

6. Lion

7. Loving

8. Manchester by the Sea

9. Moonlight

10. Silence

Alternates: As the Academy may nominate up to 10 films, but is not required to actually nominate 10, some of the above could be considered alternates. Nonetheless, both Hacksaw Ridge and Hell or High Water are also certainly worthy of accolades, while Live by Night and Sully have a whiff of prestige the Academy tends to sniff out. And while Florence Foster Jenkins is all but guaranteed a Golden »
