Great Gatsby sweeps AACTAs

30 January 2014 2:39 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation wins every film category but two at the annual Australian awards ceremony.

The big budget Us-financed jazz age extravaganza The Great Gatsby won every film category but two at the annual Aacta (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television) Awards this evening Australian time in Sydney. 

This included the best film gong, which goes to Australian producers Baz Luhrmann, Catherine Martin and Catherine Knapman and their Us counterparts Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher

Luhrmann also scored best director and, with his high school friend and regular collaborator Craig Pearce, best adapted screenplay. 

The only award The Great Gatsby could have won but didn’t was for best actress: that instead went to Rose Byrne for her small part — all the actors had small roles overall — in the bold anthology film The Turning, adapted from a book of short stories by popular novelist Tim Winton.

Awards Season Continues With Visual Effects, Sound Mixing And Makeup Nominations

14 January 2014 6:41 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today was a busy day for some of the smaller guilds with the Visual Effects Society, the Cinema Audio Society, and the Makeup and Hairstylists Guilds all announcing their nominations for 2013.

First, we have the Ves, whose main category to look at is “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture,” where we find Gravity and four other nominees that are just going to have to be happy with the fact that they got nominated. This is perhaps the easiest category to call in the entirety of awards season, and I don’t mean just here, but for the Oscar as well (Last year’s winner, Life of Pi, easily took this category before going on to claim the Oscar). It’s true that films like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Star Trek Into Darkness had outstanding effects as well, but nothing even came close to the amazing, »

‘Gravity’ Tops Visual Effects Society Nominations

14 January 2014 1:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Visual Effects Society has announced this year’s nominees for the 12th annual VES awards.

As previously announced, the Visionary Award will be presented to Alfonso Cuarón for “Gravity,” which led all films with eight vfx nominations. “Pacific Rim” received six, while “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and Iron Man 3” received five each.

Those pics were nominated in the “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature” category. In a surprise, “The Lone Ranger” was nominated in feature supporting vfx. Disney’s disastrous Western was quite f/x-driven, though many of its effects were in-camera practical f/x, which aren’t a major focus for the Ves. Other supporting effects nominees include ”Rush,” “The Great Gatsby,” The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “White House Down.”

Nobable omissions from the top category include “Man of Steel” (which got 2 nominations), “The Wolverine, »
