The 89th Annual Academy Awards kicked off Sunday at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center, and as expected, the A-Listers came dressed to impress.

Henson opted for a blue velvet Alberta Ferretti dress, which featured a thigh-high slit.

Oscars 2017: Full list of winners – as they happen

7 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sunday’s 89th Academy Awards are underway at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

By the midway point of the show Hacksaw Ridge was building up a head of steam as John Gilbert won the editing award.

The senior prize raised the award count on Mel Gibson’s war film to two following an earlier triumph in which an emotional Kevin O’Connell from the sound mixing team paid tribute to his mother after winning his first Oscar after 21 nominations.

La La Land won its first award of the night with the production design Oscar. Heading into Sunday’s show the musical was the frontrunner after it tied with Titanic and All About Eve for the most nominations earned by a film – 14.

The big question during the show is how many of those nominations will it convert?

my picks for tonight’s 89th Academy Awards (the Oscars for 2016’s films)

9 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I’ve now seen as many of the nominated films as I will be able to before tonight’s ceremony, and here finally are my educated guesses about who will take home each award — projected winners are Xed at the lefthand side. Keep in mind: those Xes don’t represent whom I think should win Oscars but whom I think will win, based on what little I can grasp about how the Academy thinks. I’ve also noted which nominees I think should win. Kindly note that this is not necessarily my take on who did the best performance/writing/FX/whatever of the year, but whom I think is best among the nominees.

I have not noted a “should win” for the feature documentary category, because I’ve only see one of the nominees (13th). I have screeners of the others, but I just haven’t had time to get to them yet. »

You be the judge: how to watch the Oscar hopefuls

25 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

We trawl the streaming services for this year’s Oscar-nominated films – and two female actors neglected by the Academy

It’s the Academy Awards on 26 February, and while the Oscars’ extreme bias towards late prestige releases means you still have to head to the cinema to do most of your pre-ceremony catch-up, a handful of nominees can be accessed from your couch. I’ve already enthused about scrappy underdog best picture nominee Hell or High Water, which is available on the usual on-demand channels; ditto Captain Fantastic and Florence Foster Jenkins. Netflix can hook you up with Yorgos Lanthimos’s wicked dating satire The Lobster, a pleasingly against-the-grain screenplay nominee, and Ava DuVernay’s stirring, Bafta-winning civil rights doc 13th. Head to Curzon Home Cinema, meanwhile, to check out Tanna, a rapturously shot Vanuatuan tribal romance that is very much the dark horse in the foreign-language race, and for a mere £2.20, Gianfranco Rosi’s sparse, »

Who Should Win the 2017 Oscars? How Variety’s Critics Would Vote

24 February 2017 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The ballots are in, and the Oscars are but days away. Variety critics Peter Debruge, Owen Gleiberman, and Guy Lodge may not be Academy members, but if they were, here’s how they would have voted in the top eight categories.

Peter Debruge

Best Picture: “Moonlight.” Nothing against “La La Land,” whose realist take on contemporary romance brings a welcome edge to the fizzy old-fashioned song-and-dance format, but “Moonlight” marks the artistic breakthrough here — and not just because the Oscars (and the industry at large) have been #sowhite for #solong. Barry Jenkins’ superb portrait of a lonely young man seeking connection in Miami focuses audiences’ attention on the sort of character the movies so often marginalize — or overlook entirely — and makes the specificity of his experience feel universal. I ranked “Hell or High Water” one notch higher on my year-end top 10, but that movie is too similar to 2008 winner “No Country for Old Men »

That auteur do it: can big name directors continue to thrive on the small screen?

17 February 2017 4:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Spike Lee, Nicolas Winding Refn and the Coens are set to join the ongoing exodus to TV, yet there are lessons to be learned from those who have gone before

In his 2015 film Youth, Italian film-maker Paolo Sorrentino used Harvey Keitel’s character Mick as a mouthpiece, delivering a diatribe about the war between film and TV through the ageing director’s dialogue. “This is cinema, and that’s just television!” he tells his muse. “Television is shit!” Her ominous response? “Television is the future, Mick.”

Smash cut to the beginning of 2017 and Sorrentino’s unveiling The Young Pope, perhaps his most opulent vision to date – in 10 parts on HBO. He’s just one of the many artists making a mass exodus from the cinema to TV, lured by the promises of handsome budgets, greater creative control, and the wider canvas of extended run times.

2017 Oscars Predictions: Who Should Win, Who Will Win

15 February 2017 12:46 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The battle lines are drawn: It's La La Land, a musical fantasy about white lovers in Hollywood, versus Moonlight, a searing drama about black youth surviving on the streets of Miami. That contest is symptomatic of how serious Oscar is – or isn't – about diversity. After two years in which not a single black actor showed up among the acting nominees, this year's crop includes seven actors of color: Mahershala Ali, Viola Davis, Naomie Harris, Ruth Negga, Dev PatelOctavia Spencer and Denzel Washington.

Oscars 2017: How Will ‘La La Land’ Perform in Relation to Previous Best Picture-Winning Musicals?

La La Land’ (Courtesy: Lionsgate)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

La La Land has officially earned a spot in the history books by tying the record for the most Oscar nominations ever — but just how many of those 14 chances will it see a win? This critical darling is widely considered to take home best picture come February 26, which would make it just the 11th musical to do so, so let’s examine how it stands in the other categories by doing a deep dive into the track records of the 10 musicals that took home top honors before it.

These legendary musicals that were all able to garner Hollywood’s top award include: 1929’s The Broadway Melody, 1936’s The Great Ziegfeld, 1944’s Going My Way, 1951’s An American in Paris, 1958’s Gigi, 1961’s West Side Story, 1964’s My Fair Lady, 1965’s The Sound of Music, 1968’s Oliver!, and 2002’s Chicago.

Film4 Options ‘Mothering Sunday’ for Development with Number 9 (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 8:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Film4, the movie arm of Britain’s Channel 4, has optioned the rights to Booker Prize-winning author Graham Swift’s 2016 novel “Mothering Sunday” for development with Number 9 FilmsElizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley, who most recently teamed with Film4 on “Carol.”

The project represents Film4’s first significant announcement of an acquisition of material for development since Daniel Battsek took the reins as Film4 director last year.

Alice Birch, writer of the critically acclaimed and award-winning “Lady Macbeth,” is attached to write the screenplay to “Mothering Sunday.”

The story starts on March 30, 1924, which is Mothering Sunday. “How will Jane Fairchild, orphan and housemaid, occupy her time when she has no mother to visit? How, shaped by the events of this never-to-be forgotten day, will her future unfold?” according to a statement.

“Beginning with an intimate assignation and opening to embrace decades, ‘Mothering Sunday’ has at its heart both the »

Damien Chazelle and Kenneth Lonergan are Neck and Neck in Original Screenplay Oscar Race — Here’s Why

10 February 2017 9:37 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When the Academy moved Barry Jenkins’ script for “Moonlight” to the Adapted Screenplay category, the Oscar race for Original Screenplay became a battle between two writer-directors. While Damien Chzelle’s reboot of the Hollywood musical is a strong contender throughout its 14 nominations, and Oscar voters will tick plenty of “La La Land” boxes on their ballots, it’s still rare for an original musical to land a screenplay win. (Alan Jay Lerner’s “An American in Paris” and Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” are exceptions.)

That’s why lauded playwright and screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan could win this race.

Here’s how Original Screenplay is shaking out:

Kenneth Lonergan (“Manchester by the Sea”)

The Oscar could go to the comeback writer-director for his tragic New England family drama.

Original Screenplay Nominations Balance Serious and Light Subjects

7 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Drama and comedy split spotlight in writing category.

Original Screenplay

Hell or High Water

Writer: Taylor Sheridan

Heist thriller, modern Western, social commentary — Sheridan’s tart, observant script, which first drew industry attention as a 2012 Black List title, about a pair of bank robbers (Chris Pine and Ben Foster) with a personal score to settle and the savvy Texas Ranger (Oscar nominee Jeff Bridges) on their trail draws elements from all three genre types to both inform and deepen its central, character-driven storyline. The result is at once a crowd-pleasing crime picture and a pensive study of people struggling to maintain their dignity in a landscape in which honesty and respect fail to take root. The crisp, often wry dialogue, rich with Southwestern lingo and delivered with relish by the solid cast (especially in the salty exchanges between Bridges and partner Gil Birmingham and the brittle closing talk between Bridges »

New Sparta Films MD Nicki Hattingh resigns

7 February 2017 2:29 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Head of production Chris Simon will lead the production-finance outfit.

The managing director of London-based production outfit New Sparta Films, Nicki Hattingh, has resigned from the company as of Feb 1 2017.

Hattingh co-founded the company with Dr Jerome Booth in 2013 as part of Booth’s umbrella investment organisation New Sparta Group.

During her tenure, the company’s production and financing credits included Matteo Garrone’s Tale Of Tales, Catherine Hardwicke’s Miss You Already, Martin Koolhoven’s Brimstone, Juan Carlos Medina’s The Limehouse Golem and Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Killing Of A Sacred Deer.

In a statement to Screen, New Sparta said that Hattingh had handed in her resignation in October and had left the company to pursue opportunities elsewhere.

Head of production Chris Simon, appointed to the role in 2015, has stepped into the position of managing director. There are no immediate plans to replace Hattingh at this time.

Oscar’s Embrace of Young Artists Gives Hope for the Future

6 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every year the Oscar nominations provide an opportunity to take the pulse of the movie industry. Which films, performances, and craftwork connected with Hollywood this year? Which studios are committed to quality projects? Who commands the respect of their peers? And who are the faces to watch?

There’s a particularly exciting answer to the last question this year. The 89th Oscar nominees provide something we’re all looking for right now: hope for the future.

An astonishing number of younger artists and/or first-time nominees are on the ballot, and while Oscar nominations are no guarantee of ongoing success in the industry, the numbers this year are still overwhelming enough to give moviegoers reason to believe we’ll be seeing great work from these contenders for years to come.

A large part of that excitement comes from two films: “La La Land,” the year’s most nominated movie with 14 noms, »
