StreamFix keeps you up to date on the best streams of the web. Here's the best of what's up and coming for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Crackle this November. Netflix "Portlandia, Season 4" Here is what you need to do: Go right now and watch the episode where Toni and Candice take over the Portland Trailblazers dance team. It is painfully funny, and their final dance routine is a shocking horror for the ages. "Snowpiercer" (Nov. 22) Chris Evans. On a post-apocalyptic train. With Tilda Swinton in her wildest getup yet. What are you supposed to do, not watch this? "Nebraska" (Nov. 8) Alexander Payne's black-and-white Midwestern pseudo-road movie has a bunch of fabulous moments. The shot of Bruce Dern's relatives watching TV in the living room is sincerely one of the most memorable things I saw in 2013. And all hail June Squibb for showing us how to really »

Written and Directed by Ned Benson.
One couple’s story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone.
For those who prefer their romantic films to be sappy, cheesy, mushy, schmaltzy, written by Nicholas Sparks or Stephanie Meyer be warned: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them may not tickle your taste buds. Not because it’s a bad film by any means, far from it, but because Ned Benson’s tale of love and loss in New York may well put you off rom-coms for good, and make you reassess everything you know and love about the genre.
Somewhat strangely, Eleanor Rigby is a film »

In this classic comedy, Joel McCrea (Foreign Correspondent) and Claudette Colbert (It Happened One Night) play Tom and Gerry, a married New York couple on the skids, financially and romantically. With Tom hot on her trail, Gerry takes off for Florida on a mission to solve the pair’s money troubles, which she accomplishes in a highly unorthodox manner.
A mix of the witty and the utterly absurd, The Palm Beach Story is a high watermark of Sturges’s brand of physical comedy and verbal repartee, featuring sparkling performances from its leads as well as hilarious supporting turns from Rudy Vallee (So This Is New York »
From a creepy demon to a psychotic billionaire, and the little girl from the 'Chandelier' music video, Carrey brought the bizarre to 'SNL.'
Jim Carrey is one of those comedians who always seems to be a walking contradiction. On the one hand, his over-the-top delivery, penchant for bizarre comedy and experience on a live sketch comedy show should mean that he'd be the perfect guest host for Saturday Night Live. But his enthusiasm and manic energy frequently seemed to sabotage his best bits during his previous two times hosting.
However, while starring in the pre-Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live's 40th season, everything seemed to fall into place (minus a few striking missteps), and Carrey managed to set the bar for the rest of the season with one of the funniest episodes in recent memory.
The night started off shaky, with a cold »
Chris Rock: I wasn’t asked to host the Oscars — because I would’ve said yes The 2005 Academy Awards host says of a report that the Academy was interested in him returning as host: “I didn't get an offer. I mean, it's Neil Patrick Harris. It's like, who would pick me before Neil Patrick Harris? He's an amazing host.” Photos show Mama June with her alleged child molester boyfriend The “Honey Boo Boo” star’s daughter, Pumpkin, had claimed they hadn’t seen each other in 10 years. Female lawyers group: “Bad Judge” is “damaging to women in the legal profession” The Miami-Dade Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers sent a letter to NBC asking that the Kate Walsh comedy be pulled: “Unfortunately, 'Bad Judge' is a step in the wrong direction. The show depicts a female judge as unethical, lazy, crude, hyper-sexualized, and unfit to »

Sunday Update: Click over for a full recap of SNL with Jim Carrey and Iggy Azalea Original Post: All righty then. Sorry—I know that reference is as painfully dated as this Austin Powers costume. But it's tough not to think about Jim Carrey's best-known roles as we consider the actor's third SNL outing—and, to be honest, to consider how long it's been since he last made a great comedy. 2013's Kick-Ass 2 was a dismal flop. That same year, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone tanked as well. The most charitable thing you can call 2011's Mr. Popper's Penguins is "inoffensive. »

The 2014 fall awards season is off to a strong start with the unveiling of the nominees for this year’s Gotham Independent Film Awards. Though not as recognizable as the Oscars or Golden Globes, the Gotham Awards typically mark the start of awards season, honoring the best and brightest in independent cinema. Additionally, many of the films highlighted by the Gotham Awards go on to become Oscar frontrunners – last year’s most nominated film was eventual Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave, and past winners have included Inside Llewyn Davis, Beasts of the Southern Wild and The Hurt Locker.
This year looks to be no different, with assumed Oscar contenders like Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s technically dazzling Birdman and Richard Linklater’s ambitious 12-year project Boyhood in the mix. Excitingly, Wes Anderson’s brilliant The Grand Budapest Hotel, released way back in March, also made the cut, meaning that its »

An eclectic group of eight distinguished filmmakers who did celebrated work on independent films in 2014 will appear on the AFI Fest's inaugural Indie Contenders Roundtable, presented by The Hollywood Reporter and moderated by yours truly, on Nov. 9 in Hollywood.

Chandor (AFI Fest opener A Most Violent Year), writer/director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), actress Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night), actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler), actor Bill Hader (The Skeleton Twins), actress Michelle Monaghan (Fort Bliss), actress Kristen Stewart (Still Alice) and actress Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer).

Deemed as his career best, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood leads all nominations for the 24th Gotham Independent Film Awards with winks in the Best Feature, Best Actor (Ethan Hawke), Best Actress (Patricia Arquette) and Breakthrough Actor (Ellar Coltrane) while Birdman, Nightcrawler, Under the Skin and Dear White People technically place second with two noms a piece in the five possible categories. Arguably 2014′s most prolific indie film in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash failed to move the five-critic panels in the Best Film category and sans a Best Supporting category, means Miles Teller receives Best Award nom but J.K. Simmons will just have to wait it out for the Indie Spirit Awards to acknowledge his perf. A special Gotham Jury Award has already been awarded to the ensemble performance of the players of Foxcatcher (Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum) shrewd Vanessa Redgrave perhaps didn’t get enough screen time »

The Independent Filmmaker Project officially fired the starting gun on the film awards season as always this morning with the announcement of this year's Gotham Awards nominees. Unsurprisingly, the most high-profile indie in the race — "Boyhood" — drew the most nominations with a whopping four mentions, including Best Feature. That's extremely high for the Gotham Awards and it sends IFC's campaign sailing into the season with a huge burst of wind. Speaking of revving the campaign engine on an early year release, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" landed in the Best Feature category. Two years ago Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" won that category but still didn't end up with a Best Picture Oscar nomination. Can Fox Searchlight find better luck? And speaking of Searchlight, "Birdman" landed Best Feature and Best Actor nominations. Fully expected. Filling out the Best Feature category was Ira Sachs' beautiful "Love is Strange" and Jonathan Glazer »

The Gotham Awards juried nominations have recently surplanted the ancient Nbr as the first real awards nomination/wins of the film year. That it happens in October is more than a little crazy, but what'cha gonna do? The New York centric film prizes, think of it as the Spirit Awards's East Coast Cousin albeit with far fewer prizes will be held on December 1st. Since they only have six categories and four separate juries (composed of critics and programmers), multiple nods aren't as easy to come by as they are at other shows but a handful of films managed it: Boyhood, Birdman, Dear White People, Nightcrawler, and Under the Skin.
Very happy to see the intensely moving Love is Strange, in constant danger of being undervalued, show up. Especially since it didn't show up anywhere else. 199 films were eligible for these honors. »

It's no real surprise to see Boyhood topping the this morning's Gotham Independent Film Awards nominations with four. The film is likely to lead the Spirit Award nominations as well. It will be the year's most highly touted independent feature, make several top ten lists and probably earn plenty of Oscar nominations if not a few wins. It's also no surprise to see Birdman get a couple noms. In fact, the only nomination I find particularly interesting here is the nomination for Oscar Isaac for his role in J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year. Primarily because critics have yet to see it and because the nomination committee clearly enjoyed Nightcrawler, but saw fit to nominate Isaac for A Most Violent Year, but not Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler. It's also a little disappointing to see Tom Hardy might end up being ignored even for independent awards for his performance in Locke, »

And the Oscar season is off and running! Nominees for the 24th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards have been unleased and Richard Linklater's fantastic "Boyhood" led the pack with four nods including Best Feature, Best Actor for Ethan Hawke, Best Actress for Patricia Arquette, and Breakthrough Actor for Ellar Coltrane.
We'll find out the winners of the 2014 Gotham Awards on December 1st! Here's the complete list of nominees:
Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Richard Linklater's Boyhood was nominated for four Gotham Independent Film Awards, including a nod for Best Feature. Also competing for best picture are Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Love Is Strange, and Under the Skin. While the Gothams celebrate only independent film, they are one of the first notable—if not the most reliable predictor—year-end movie awards. Last year, the Gothams rewarded Inside Llewyn Davis and Short Term 12's Brie Larson, in addition to Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyer's Club. Boyhood was also recognized for Ethan Hawke in the Best Actor category, Patricia Arquette in Best Actress, »

The Independent Filmmaker Project (Ifp) announced Thursday morning the nominees for the 24th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards. Highlighting the best of the year’s independent film, the Gotham Awards give an early bump to the smaller films that could get lost in the studio shuffle. For 2014, the seven competitive awards include Best Feature, Best Documentary, Best Actor, Best Actress (presenting sponsor euphoria Calvin Klein), Breakthrough Actor, the Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director award, and the Gotham Audience Award. In addition to the competitive awards, Tilda Swinton, director Bennett Miller, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos will be honored with tributes. 24 films received nominations this year, not including a special award handed bestowed to Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum for their ensemble work in “Foxcatcher.” Voting for the primary awards begins on Nov. 19th at 12:01 Am Est and concludes on November 26th at 5:00 Pm Est. “Each year the Gotham »

Richard Linklater’s drama “Boyhood,” 12 years in the making, led the nominations list with four, including acting nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Ellar Coltrane. “Birdman,” Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s story of a has-been actor trying to make his comeback on Broadway, snagged an additional nom for lead actor Michael Keaton.
Jonathan Glazer’s scifi feature “Under the Skin” also did well, nabbing a thesping nom for lead Scarlett Johansson. Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”), Bill Hader (“The Skeleton Twins”) and Miles Teller (“Whiplash”) also are among the actors in the running for trophies.
Every year the Gotham nominators also recognize the breakthrough talent of emerging creatives, this year with a pool of nominees that include directors Justin Simien »
