Sorrentino Set To Start Shooting Michael Caine-Starrer ‘In The Future’ In May

4 March 2014 4:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Hot on the heels of his foreign Oscar victory for “The Great Beauty” Paolo Sorrentino is set to start shooting in May on Michael Caine-starrer “In The Future,” an intimate drama about “friendship between two old people,” the Italo helmer has announced.

Sorrentino said that after his ambitious Oscar-winning tour de force he wants to make “a fresh start” with a “small, intimate film,” he told Italian daily La Repubblica. The helmer’s customary irony is likely to permeate his new pic, which Sorrentino penned himself.

As previously announced, “In The Future” is being shepherded by Sorrentino’s regular producers, Nicola Giuliano and Francesca Cima via their Indigo Films shingle, with co-financing from Italian distributor Mediaset/Medusa which is planning a late 2014 release in Italy.

In The Future” will mark Sorrentino’s second pic toplining an A-list anglo-saxon star, following his collaboration with Sean Penn on “This Must Be The Place »

Rome – Italy is ecstatic about Paolo Sorrentino’s “The Great Beauty” scooping the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, which marks its eleventh foreign Oscar and consolidates the country’s status as the world’s winner of the most foreign film statuettes.

       France has won nine Oscars in the foreign language category. Italy and France have both additionally won three special/honorary Oscars.

“It’s ‘Great Beauty’ in Hollywood. Paolo Sorrentino Wins The Oscar,” trumpeted the website for leading Italian daily “Corriere della Sera.”

Italy’s Culture Czar Dario Franceschini tweeted his joy calling the Oscar win a “self confidence booster” for the country, while Roberto Cicutto, head of Italy’s film entity and promotional org. Istituto Luce Cinecittà, enthused that “this must be a point of no return,” for the international visibility of Italian movies.

Deadline’s Oscars Blog: ‘12 Years A Slave’, ‘Gravity’ And Boredom Reign Supreme

2 March 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Here we are again after the Golden Globes,  Mike Fleming and Anita Busch taking on the task of play by play during the most wide-open Oscar race we can remember. Even on the party circuit, industry insiders who usually have a grasp of who’ll walk away with Oscars were evenly torn between Alfonso Cuaron’s 3D masterpiece Gravity and Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave. Then again, there were so many terrific films that got Best Picture nominations, and all of them have at least a puncher’s chance at an upset. Related: Oscars: Pete Hammond’s Absolute Final Predictions That includes American Hustle, where David O Russell co-wrote the Best Original Script nominee with Eric Warren Singer and got tour de force performances and nominations for Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Perfs so strong there was no room on the nomination roster for perennial Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner. »

Italy’s Mediaset Sparks Ire Over Decision to Give Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘Beauty’ Free TV Play

27 February 2014 3:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome - Italian exhibitors are up in arms over broadcaster Mediaset’s decision to air Paolo Sorrentino’s “The Great Beauty,” Italy’s contender for the foreign-language Academy Award, in primetime on its flagship Canale 5 TV station on March 4, two days after the Oscars ceremony.

The decision to air “Beauty” for millions of Italians on free TV shortly after the Oscars has local exhibbers fuming, both because they are eager to capitalize on the frontrunner pic’s positive prospects, and also because Mediaset, which is the country’s top commercial network, is breaking with the Italian practice of a roughly two-year window between a title’s theatrical release and its free-tv bow. However in Italy this window is a gentleman’s agreement and is not cast in stone.

Gravity, 12 Years Top BAFTAs

17 February 2014 6:20 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There are two top awards at the BAFTAs, which means that both 12 Years a Slave (Best Picture) and Gravity (Best British Film) walked away with major honors at last night's ceremony. (Whether Gravity is actually a British film is a different question.) Gravity also took home awards for best director, best cinematography, and best visual effects, because British people apparently really, really love outer space. Other categories of note: Cate Blanchett got another W, J.Law beat Lupita, and Barkhad Abdi won for Captain Phillips! Winners' list below.Best Picture: 12 Years a SlaveBest British Film: GravityBest Director: Alfonso Cuarón, GravityBest Actor: Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a SlaveBest Actress: Cate Blanchett, Blue JasmineBest Supporting Actor: Barkhad Abdi, Captain PhillipsBest Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, American HustleBest Original Screenplay: American Hustle, Eric Warren Singer, David O.

The 2014 BAFTA Film Awards winners

16 February 2014 10:31 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 17 Feb 2014 - 06:31

Gravity, 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle lead this year's collection of BAFTA Film Award winners. Here's the full list...

Last night, lots of people headed off to London's Royal Opera House, where Stephen Fry hosted the British Academy Film Awards. That's the BAFTAs to you and us.

The BAFTAs used to be one of those ceremonies where people sent speeches to be read by other people, but these days, it seems really quite posh. Most of the nominees seemed to be in attendance, even those who didn't win, and if it carries on at this rate, the BBC may actually show us the whole event, rather than editing it down to two hours, to be shown a further two hours after it actually took place.

Anyway, the big winners turned out to be Gravity, which snared six gongs, American Hustle, which got three, »

"Gravity" Dominates BAFTA Nominations

8 January 2014 1:16 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the nominations for the British Academy Film Awards and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" led the pack with 11 nominations including Best Film, British Film (who knew "Gravity" was a British movie?), Director for Cuaron, Screenplay for Cuaron and his son Jonas, and Actress for Sandra Bullock.

The biggest snub in my humble opinion was "Dallas Buyers Club" which appeared nowhere on the nominations list. Apparently, the British Academy did not deem Matthew McConaughey or Jared Leto award-worthy!

The BAFTA Awards will take place on Feb. 16 at the Royal Opera house in London. Will "Gravity" emerge as the victorious movie that night? And by the way, "Gravity" was my No. 1 favorite film of 2013!

Here's the complete list of BAFTA nominations:

BAFTA And The American Society Of Cinematographers Announce Their Nominations

8 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early this morning saw the announcement of the nominations for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards for 2013. For the most part, they look like all of the other guild nominations we’ve seen over the past month or so (including all five director nominees who were just nominated for the DGA’s top award), but there are a few interesting differences to take note of.

First off, Philomena has a much stronger presence here, but given that it is a British film, it’s hardly surprising. You may also notice a lot of love for Behind the Candelabra, a film that was only shown on TV in the States, making it ineligible for theatrical awards.

However, aside from that, just about all the major players are here. Gravity leads the pack with 11 nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, and Best Actress. 12 Years a »
