Awards obsessives spend months speculating, tracking patterns, tuning in to the yay-or-nay buzz, consulting and re-consulting our tea leaves – but at the end of the day, nobody knows anything except the person holding that little envelope. Months of prognostication were upended this morning when the nominations for the 89th annual Academy Awards were finally announced (the telecast runs Sunday, February 26th), sending the internet into a tizzy of insta-analysis over the shocks, surprises ... and of course, the snubs.
With 2016 yielding a bumper crop of excellent films and performances, some perfectly »
From the moment audiences first saw her powerful performance in Loving at the Cannes Film Festival, Ruth Negga had major Oscar buzz — and now the Irish-Ethiopian rising star will be heading to the Academy Awards for the first time with a Best Supporting Actress nomination.
In the movie, Negga and Joel Edgerton play real-life couple Mildred and Richard Loving, who were arrested in 1958 in their own bedroom in Virginia. Their crime? Being in an interracial marriage. The Lovings’ love truly stood the test of time when they challenged the law and brought their case before the Supreme Court in 1967, leading »
The Oscar nominations are about 16 hours away. We’ve already declared final predictions in all 24 categories, but while we bide our time, here are a few thoughts on some unexpected nominations that could be in the cards. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Octavia Spencer has been the default honoree from the “Hidden Figures” cast so far this season, netting Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations. But the film came on very strong when ballots went out in the first week of the new year, turning into a big box office story and enjoying events hosted by the likes of George Lucas and Jeffrey Katzenberg. So don’t be surprised if the coattails extend a bit farther. I’m placing a bet on Kevin Costner in the supporting actor category, but Taraji P. Henson could surge in the »

Much has been made about Superman’s role in Justice League. Given that he died at the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, perhaps the biggest thing people are wondering about is how exactly he’ll be resurrected. While that’s something we probably won’t find out until the film actually hits theaters, there are a few things that are mostly confirmed about the character at this early stage. One of which is the fact that he’ll be donning his famous black suit at some point.
Teased by Henry Cavill last year, fans of the comics will know that Supes first wore the costume back in The Death of Superman. In that arc, he was killed by Doomsday and upon his revival, he sported the black suit with a longer hairstyle. From what we’ve heard so far, it sounds like Justice League will definitely be »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »

No matter what happens on Oscar Sunday next month, possible contenders will definitely survive. A slew of hopefuls are preparing to belt an aptly named anthem in case things don’t go their way.
Some of them opted to not sing it, per se. Portman engaged in a dramatic reading of the heart-wrenching lyrics. Michael Shannon handled it with a hearty baritone. Joel Edgerton and Michelle Williams made it into a dialogue. »

Err, so technically we are slightly under two months away from the 89th annual Academy Awards, but we wanted to see how things shook out at Sunday's Golden Globes -- plus, let SAG, the PGA and BAFTA weigh in -- before making our next round of predictions.
As a wise woman once said, "One day you're in, and the next day you're out." That has proven truer than ever this awards season, where things appear less certain after each round of nominations. All that said, here is where we stand ahead of the Oscars' official announcement on Jan. 24...

On TV, the 74th annual Golden Globes played like a never-ending valentine to “La La Land,” which landed seven awards — more than any other film in history. But inside the Beverly Hills ballroom, the three-hour dinner was more like a party on a cruise ship, with drinking, smoking, and lots of selfies. Here are 11 secrets from inside the Golden Globes.
1. How Jimmy Fallon lost the room
The momentum was on the “Tonight Show” host’s side — for all of five minutes. The pre-recorded introduction, which had Fallon belting his own version of a “La La Land” song, kicked off the evening on a high note. But the problem was, Fallon lost the room as soon as he went live and not just because his teleprompter failed. Presiding over the first major Hollywood gathering since Donald Trump’s election as president, Fallon’s political jokes were too soft. The laughter during »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)
This week’s question: Here we are again, staring down the barrel of another year at the movies, one sure to be filled with its fair share of discoveries, disappointments, and trucks that are powered by monsters. Many of our most anticipated new films can be seen coming a mile away, but what’s the most exciting movie of 2017 that no one is talking about?

I haven’t seen much talk about “The Glass Castle,” Lionsgate’s upcoming adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ memoir, maybe because it doesn’t have an actual release date yet. But I’ve been interested in the project since it was first announced, »

Last night, the glitziest awards show of the season so far went down, with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announcing their Golden Globe award winners. As always, the HFPA mixed in acclaim for frontrunners with some truly idiosyncratic selections. Yes, voters opted to continue much of the Oscar status quo, but when the HFPA members diverged from what the precursors and potentially the Academy will favor, boy did they ever go off script. All that will be covered in a moment, but just know that this doesn’t really impact the rest of the season that much. Perception of the race? Sure. But the reality? Not so much. The guilds about to announce this week will be of much more importance. Still, it was certainly fun to watch all of this go down yesterday. For those of you wondering, I got ten of the categories right, which isn’t too shabby. »

Ben Affleck is one proud big brother.
The actor attended the 2017 Golden Globes to support his younger brother Casey Affleck — and after Casey’s big win, it’s safe to say both men are going home with a smile.
Check out People’s full 2017 Golden Globe Awards coverage and complete winners list!
People was inside the award show, and Ben, 44, looked somber and serious in the moments leading up to the award for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, drama, for which Manchester by the Sea star Casey, 41, was nominated.
About director Kenneth Lonergan, Affleck said, “I don’t have enough time to say what I want to say about Kenny. So suffice to say, I love you, you’re beautiful, you’re a treasure to all of us, to people who like movies and work in movies and this is all because of you.” He also wished he could be on stage with his co-star Michelle Williams, who he called “perfect.”
He also made a joke about the movie’s producer, Matt Damon, who passed on the starring role. “I suspect you won’t be passing on any more movies in the future when I might be anywhere nearby. I’ll take this one.”
