Pretty Oscar Artwork & Ceremony News

28 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here. One of my favorite thing about this year’s Oscar nominations was the beautiful artwork that adorned the screen as J.J. Abrams, Alfonso Cuarón, Chris Pine and Cheryl Boone Isaacs read out names like Marion Cotillard, Laura Dern and Dan Gilroy though sadly not Ava DuVernay’s nor David Oyelowo’s (might they have a better chance with their next collaboration, that Katrina murder mystery film?)

 As it turns out, the Academy is really upping its game when it comes to art you wish you could hang in your living room. Last year’s ceremony poster was quite the snooze-fest and I have to admit, other than that fantastic Olly Moss’s gorgeous poster from 2012, AMPAS’ artwork as of late has been rather dull. You have to go back to 2007 to find my other recent favorite poster (those quotes!). While the official poster for this year’s Neil Patrick Harris »

Jordan's Top Ten Movies of 2014

27 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: January 26 - February 1

26 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Fury"

David Ayer's WWII action/drama boasts an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, and Logan Lerman as members of a tank crew headed right into Nazi territory. Definitely for fans of gruesome war movies, so if that doesn't whet your whistle, keep on rolling.

"The Book of Life"

Guillermo del Toro produced this animated family film inspired by Mexican folkore. Although it got mixed reviews from critics, the animation alone makes it worth a look. And, hey, don't you need a break from "Frozen"?

"Downton Abbey: Season 5"

If you haven't caught up to all the "Upstairs Downstairs"-style drama in this PBS series, well, now's your chance. If you're just a diehard collector, the three-disc Blu-ray comes with 40 minutes of supplemental material. »

‘Birdman’ Soars As PGA Sets A New Course For Wide Open Best Picture Oscar Race

25 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

During the cocktail reception before Saturday night’s Producers Guild Awards began I ran into Oscar-nominated Screenwriter (and Director) Dan Gilroy and wife Rene Russo, there supporting one of the ten PGA Darryl F. Zanuck Best Picture nominees, Nightcrawler. Russo, admittedly not a staple at this type of awards-season banquet, asked me if they were going to serve food at this event. “Yes,” I replied, “it’s a dinner.” “So what do you think will win, Boyhood or Birdman?” she wondered. That was an interesting and somewhat surprising way to distill what has been thought to be a wide open race to Oscar until Boyhood basically cleaned up on the critics circuit, capping its run with Golden Globe and  Critics Choice Movie Award wins, while Birdman scored for Michael Keaton but actually lost to Fox Searchlight stablemate The Grand Budapest Hotel in both respective comedy categories. But now with the »

Birdman and Boyhood top Critics' Choice Movie Awards 2015

15 January 2015 9:31 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman was lauded with seven gongs at this year's Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

Lead actor Michael Keaton scored two of the awards for Actor and Actor in a Comedy, while the movie also won in the Acting Ensemble, Score, Original Screenplay, Editing and Cinematography categories.

However, the Alejandro González Iñárritu-directed black comedy was unable to beat Boyhood to the Picture award.

The coming-of-age drama had the second highest number of awards in total, which included Director for Richard Linklater, Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette and Young Actor/Actress for Ellar Coltrane.

The Grand Budapest Hotel followed suit with three awards for Comedy, Art Direction and Costume Design, while Guardians of the Galaxy took two with Action Movie and Hair & Make-up.

2015 Critics Choice Awards Winners Topped by 'Boyhood' and 'Birdman'

15 January 2015 8:37 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Birdman led the field heading into tonight's 2015 Critics Choice Awards with 13 total nominations followed by The Grand Budapest Hotel with 11 nominations, and Boyhood with eight. Of course, following this morning's 2015 Oscar nominations all eyes were on the Critics Choice Awards to see how this awards season will continue to flow. Some were already declaring the Oscars irrelevant, bypassed by the likes of the more diverse list of nominees at both the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards as the Oscars failed to nominate Selma and saw a list of acting nominees dominated by all-white actors. Personally, I think people are looking to blame the Academy for overall industry ills, but I guess there is some level of importance to be placed on being the organization to move the dial. Is that by nominations alonec How much do winners matterc That's probably a question best left for another time, as for tonight's awards. »

Critics Choice Awards: ‘Boyhood’ Wins Best Picture

15 January 2015 5:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Broadcast Film Critics Assn.’s Critics Choice Awards spread top awards between best picture winner “Boyhood” and “Birdman,” with an array of less-often recognized films also taking prizes.

Michael Keaton won best actor for “Birdman.” The most nominated film of the evening, it also took prizes for score, original screenplay, ensemble and comedy actor award for Keaton.

Boyhood” also racked up wins for director Richard Linklater, supporting actress Patricia Arquette and young performer Ellar Coltrane. “A year ago I really didn’t think anyone was going to care about this movie,” said Coltrane.

Comparisons to the Academy Awards are limited because the Critics Circle has many different categories, but in the crucial race of best-picture, it has matched the eventual Oscar-winner in 12 of the last 15 years.

The event was held at the Palladium in Hollywood Thursday evening, continuing the Critics Choice tradition of beginning ceremonies about 12 hours after the announcement of  Oscar nominations. »

Jake Gyllenhaal Might Join Suicide Squad, Here's Who He'd Play

15 January 2015 4:06 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jake Gyllenhaal might not have gotten an Oscar nomination today for his blistering performance in Dan Gilroy's amazing thriller Nightcrawler, but there is a piece of good news out in the atmosphere for him today: he may soon land his first comic book movie role in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. This news comes on the heels of reports from this morning saying that Tom Hardy will no longer be able to play Rick Flag in the 2016 blockbuster, and now The Wrap has learned that Warner Bros. is eying Jake Gyllenhaal as his potential replacement. At this time it doesn't sound like there is any kind of deal in place, and the studio denied comment on the story, but there is some good reason to believe it, as Suicide Squad wouldn't be the actor's first time working with director David Ayer. The two men previously collaborated on the critically-acclaimed, »

Analysis: The Unpredictable 2015 Oscar Nominations

15 January 2015 8:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On Thursday, voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences once again provided several surprises in its announcement of the 87th Oscar nominations, which included mentions for underdogs Marion Cotillard (“Two Days, One Night”) and Laura Dern (“Wild”) while omitting such “shoo-ins” as “The Lego Movie” for best animated film and “Gone Girl” for screenplay.

In a year where eight films will compete for best picture, it was a pair of independent films — one released in March — that walked away with the most nominations as “Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” scored nine each.

Runners-up in terms of tallies were eight noms for “The Imitation Game” and six for “American Sniper” and “Boyhood.”

Though nominated for PGA Awards, “Foxcatcher,” “Gone Girl” and “Nightcrawler” all failed to land best picture nominations for the Oscars. David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and “Nightcrawler” had received a lot of attention from the guilds, »
