But "The Descendants" received the big honor of the night, the Best Picture award, and the film also won Best Adapted Screenplay.
It's interesting that the Ipa honored Gosling for Best Actor and Viola Davis for Best Actress -- both are not considered Oscar frontrunners, but gave the performances of their lives nonetheless.
The 16th Annual Satellite Awards. were held Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011, in the Rodeo Ballroom of The Beverly Hills Hotel, Beverly Hills, Calif.

hollywoodnews.com: “The Descendants” and “Drive” sped away with the most wins at the Satellite Awards Sunday night, including Best Picture for Alexander Payne’s bittersweet drama and Best Director for Nicolas Winding Refn.
Elsewhere, Viola Davis won Best Actress honors for her role as a Southern housemaid in “The Help,” while Jessica Chastain (who appears alongside Davis in Tate Taylor’s drama) took home Best Supporting Actress honors for her work in Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life.” At this stage of the race, it appears like Chastain’s the one to beat in the Best Supporting Actress race … so long as voters can come to a consensus on which performance they’d like to honor.
As for “The Artist,” it grabbed one Satellite award, »

Hollywoodnews.com: “The Artist” shouldn’t work in 2011.
At a time when giants of the cinematic art form such as Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese are experimenting with cutting-edge 3D technology, Michel Hazanavicius turns back the clock, delivering a black-and-white, predominantly silent ode to Hollywood’s Golden Age.
The story involves legendary silent film star George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) being pushed out of the spotlight by the arrival of the “talkies.” But it also rekindles in audiences all of the whimsical reasons they flock to the movies.
“The Artist” has been charming audiences since Cannes, and continued winning over fans at AFI Fest in Los Angeles this week. Hazavanicius and I started with that meaningful screening when we sat down for a lengthy chat, where we got into Frank Capra films, the visual panache of the Coen Brothers, Mary Pickford’s legacy and the joy of winning multiple Audience Awards. »

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Chinese Theatre handprint ceremony (click on the photo to enlarge it) Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have joined movie luminaries of the distant past — and the not-so-distant past — by having their prints immortalized in cement at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Pattinson, Stewart, and Lautner are doing publicity rounds for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, which opens Nov. 18 in the United States and around that time throughout much of the world. And speaking of the not-so-distant past, three days ago Mickey Rourke left his mark there as well. Pattinson must be particularly happy because his movie Bel Ami has finally been acquired. In fact, the period comedy-drama was acquired by an arm of one of Hollywood's major studios, Sony Pictures Worldwide. Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman, and Christina Ricci co-star. Previous Chinese Theatre ceremony participants range from silent-film superstar Mary Pickford »

A review of tonight's "Parks and Recreation" coming up just as soon as I quote Mary Pickford(*)... (*) And, yes, I went with that only because of the unexpected chance to do two different Mary Pickford intros in one week. A few weeks ago, I talked about how "Parks and Recreation" handles the usually difficult task of mining comedy about how its characters are really good at things. When it comes to Leslie Knope, the feat is even more impressive than that: "Parks and Recreation" continually generates comedy and story out of how its main character is really good, period. Leslie's »

A review of tonight's "Boardwalk Empire" coming up just as soon as I kill Mary Pickford... "Would you fight for me?" -Richard "Of course I would. Right down to the last bullet." -Jimmy Among the large and colorful cast of characters on display in "Boardwalk Empire," why are so many of us drawn to Richard Harrow? He didn't turn up until the second half of the first season, appears irregularly even now that Jack Huston is a full-time castmember, and isn't as central to the action as Nucky, Jimmy and Margaret. Is it the eery, lifelike mask that does it? Is »

Rourke Will Be The 254th Celebrity To Have Hands &
Footprints In Chinese Cement On Monday, October 31st
(Hollywood, Calif., October 18, 2011)–The most famous place in Hollywood, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre (www.chinesetheatres.com), is set to honor its 254th celebrity, Oscar(R)-nominee Mickey Rourke, with his own hand and footprints ceremony on Monday, October 31 at 11:00 Am.

Up next, Rourke can be seen in the visually-stunning 3D epic adventure Immortals, starring Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, Stephen Dorff, and John Hurt. Directed by Tarsem Singh, written by Charles Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides and produced by Gianni Nunnari, Mark Canton and Relativity’s CEO RyanKavanaugh, Immortals tells the story of the ruthless King Hyperion (Rourke), who leads his bloodthirsty army on a murderous rampage across Greece to find a deadly weapon that will destroy humanity. »

Throughout summer it has been difficult to ignore the recent Chinoiserie trend in stores and magazines, kick-started by the opulent Louis Vuitton show in Paris and merged effortlessly into autumn by Paul Smith. Cheongsam collars and qipao slits aside, this new-found interest in the East may have been partly triggered by China’s growing appetite for high-end goods, which despite recent economic setbacks, has left Western luxury brands competing for a share of this very sizable market.
This obsession with the ‘Orient’ has also seen a proliferation of Asian models on catwalks and throughout editorial spreads, which has courted controversy for some publications and raises all manner of questions regarding ethnicity and standards of beauty. Whilst researching this trend it becomes impossible not to contemplate the »
Every day, thousands of visitors brave the costumed impersonators of Hollywood Blvd. to ogle the foot and handprints of filmdom's greatest celebrities, immortalized in cement in front of the historic Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Come November 3, expect that tourist foot traffic to multiply; that's when Twilight stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner will add their pawprints alongside those of folks like Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, The Marx Brothers, and Judy Garland.

Joan Fontaine-Charles Boyer in Rare The Constant Nymph on TCM. [Photo: Miriam Jordan, Neil Hamilton in Two Heads on a Pillow.] Besides the Edmund Goulding-directed Joan Fontaine-Charles Boyer-Alexis Smith movie The Constant Nymph, other Library of Congress Film Archive entries on Turner Classic Movies tonight include Two Heads on a Pillow (1934), a B comedy directed by William Nigh, an important late silent-era director (Lon Chaney's Mr. Wu, Ramon Novarro's Across to Singapore) later stuck with second-rate fare. Apparently a sort of Adam's Rib predecessor, Two Heads on a Pillow features former silent-era leading man Neil Hamilton (Batman's Commissioner Gordon) and minor leading lady Miriam Jordan as once-married attorneys involved in a divorce case. It's probably worth watching even if only because of its cast, which also includes silent-era veterans Betty Blythe (the title role in the now-lost The Queen of Sheba) and Claire McDowell (Ramon Novarro's leprosy-stricken mom in Ben-Hur, »
As you may have heard, Michel Hazanavicius’s “The Artist” (The Weinstein Company, 11/23, ?, trailer) — which made a big splash at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (where it was a serious contender for the Palm d’Or and its star Jean Dujardin was named best actor), and which will soon be seen again at the Toronto International Film Festival — is not only in black-and-white, but also silent!
Many credible analysts — including Harvey Weinstein, who is as savvy an Oscar-prospector as anyone, and whose studio purchased the film’s rights shortly after Cannes – believe that it is visually beautiful/emotionally powerful enough to seriously factor into this year’s Oscar race.
But could a silent film, in this day and age, actually catch on with the public and/or Oscar voters?
Most people today dismiss silent movies as lacking something — namely, sound — but that’s not a particularly enlightened position. After all, »

Kevin Brownlow has won a lifetime-achievement Oscar and made superb films. So why isn't he better known?
On 13 November last year Kevin Brownlow received an honorary Academy Award for lifetime achievement, alongside Francis Ford Coppola (Jean-Luc Godard didn't turn up). In his letter of nomination, Martin Scorsese declared that "Mr Brownlow is a giant among film historians and preservationists, known and justifiably respected throughout the world for his multiple achievements: as the author of The Parade's Gone By, a definitive history of the silent era, and . . . a biography of David Lean . . . and as the director with Andrew Mollo of two absolutely unique fiction films, Winstanley (1975) and It Happened Here (1964) . . . On a broader level, you might say that Mr Brownlow is film history." This sums up pretty well the extraordinary record of a remarkable Englishman.
But while Brownlow's achievements – as a historian of film, in preserving and restoring silent-era classics, and »
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return to series television for the first time since Buffy the Vampire Slayer creates extra-high expectations for Ringer, a noir thriller that will debut on The CW on Sept. 13. But that’s okay with her costar Nestor Carbonell. “They should be,” says the actor, who knows a little something about successful serialized dramas thanks to his role as Lost‘s Richard Alpert.

(In this new series, What Culture!’s Tom Barnard takes a look at a selection of great books written about and around that endlessly interesting subject: movies. Be it a tell-all memoir of Hollywood scandal, or a chronicle of a filmmaker’s struggle to make his masterpiece, each of the books in the series have one thing in common: they are classics; books that will stand the test of time; books that will be referenced and sighted for their unique contribution to movie literature. Above all, they are relentlessly entertaining works.)
No. 1: Final Cut:
Dreams And Disaster In The Making Of Heaven’S Gate by Steven Bach (1985)
By the early 1920s, four major Hollywood players decided that the early studio system wasn’t for them. Like being caught in the grip of a boa, it was restricting, terrifying, and – ultimately – soul crushing. »
