Noah Baumbach is on a roll. Over the last five years, he’s treated us with Frances Ha, While We’re Young, Mistress America, and the greatly revealing De Palma doc, which he co-directed with Jake Paltrow.

His next film, The Meyerowitz Stories, stars Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler and it will officially arrive on […]

Come Sunday, a.k.a. Oscars night, we'll all be tipping our hats to the year's winners. But before we do that, here's to the "losers" – the worthy ones of 2016 that, for whatever cockamamie reason, didn't even get a nomination.
