The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am

This year's Best Actress race is extremely competitive.

Some of our favourite performances couldn't secure the nomination, and it was simply because there were so many incredible female performances. We're sad that names like Annette Bening for 20th Century Women, Amy Adams for Arrival and Hailee Steinfeld for The Edge of Seventeen weren't among the nominees, but we also love the five nominated performances so much. Seriously, it was just a great year for women acting in film, and with the talent out there today, it's always going to be hard, and therefore even more of an honour, to land that Oscar nomination.

Though there's five women in the running here, the race has been pretty much narrowed down to two major threats. »

Harvey Weinstein Taps Trump’s Travel Ban for New ‘Lion’ Oscar Messaging

9 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When it comes to awards season, Harvey Weinstein has a long history of tethering his contenders to the zeitgeist, or at least to a wider-ranging socio-political concern. And it usually happens in phase two, as campaigns begin to pivot toward a win.

For “Philomena” in early 2014, writer-star Steve Coogan and the film’s eponymous subject Philomena Lee were shuffled off to Rome for an audience with Pope Francis. They were there as representatives of the Philomena Project, which aims to raise public awareness in Ireland and around the world on the issue of forced and illegal adoptions and to help reunite families with the advancement of open records legislation in Ireland.

Weinstein himself hit the morning shows on behalf of “The Imitation Game” in early 2015, calling on the British government to pardon the thousands whose lives had been ruined with convictions under laws forbidding homosexuality, which was not decriminalized in the U. »

How ‘La La Land’ Cinematographer Linus Sandgren Taught His Cameras to Dance

1 February 2017 2:12 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When looking for a cinematographer who could handle shooting his modern-day musical, “La La Land” director Damien Chazelle saw something in David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” that caught his attention. While Russell’s acidic worldview bears little resemblance to the candy-colored fantasy of “La La Land,” his camera is often moving, almost swirling, as it mirrors the often frenetic internal state of his characters. When Chazelle saw the film, he thought cinematographer Linus Sandgren might be someone he should meet.

“The reason Damien was interested in me was from camera movement in that film,” said Sandgren. “He knew he wanted the camera telling the story in a physical and interactive way.”

Amy Adams Is Spellbinding in ‘Arrival’

26 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The following content has been sponsored by Paramount Pictures. Amy Adams has been nominated for a whopping five Oscars—and zero wins!—since she broke onto the Hollywood scene in 2005 with “Junebug.” Wracking up additional supporting actress nods in “Doubt,” “The Fighter,” and “The Master,” the actor then earned a spot on the shortlist for leading actress in 2013’s “American Hustle.” She’s also earned her status as a movie star with bona fide acting chops, as her recent turn in Paramount Pictures’ “Arrival” proves. With the announcement of the 89th Academy Awards nominations, “Arrival” has joined the ranks of sci-fi feature films that have received Oscar recognition for best picture. Netting an impressive eight nods total, the drama’s success is due largely to the magnetic talents of its star. “Amy Adams, she was the actress I was dreaming of,” says director Denis Villeneuve in the above clip. “She »

Hail Mary: Why Mary Tyler Moore Was the Greatest

25 January 2017 3:15 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The most unforgettable moment from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, out of dozens of contenders: Mary sits at the bar with her newsroom co-workers, drinking their sorrows away. They've had a grim day – her cranky boss Lou Grant just attended his ex-wife's wedding, while he's still reeling from the divorce, so the others tagged along for moral support. Pompous anchorman Ted Baxter tries to lighten the mood with a knock-knock joke. Lou growls, "Ted, this better be a pretty funny knock-knock joke. I lost a wife today." It's a godawful joke. »

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

The Lrm Interview with Edgar Ramirez on Gold

24 January 2017 12:21 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez had been working quite steadily with small roles in films like Steven Soderbergh’s Che and Paul GreengrassThe Bourne Ultimatum.  Things really took off for Ramirez when he was cast in Olivier Assayas’ television mini-series Carlos, playing a ruthless kingpin. The five-hour film allowed Ramirez to show a wide range of what he could do as an character, earning him Golden Globe and Emmy nominations.

Since then, Ramirez has worked with David O. Russell (Joy), Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) and starred as boxing great Roberto Duran in last year’s Hands of Stone.

Now, Ramirez appears opposite Matthew McConaughey in Gold, the Stephen Gaghan-directed film, in which he plays geologist Michael Acosta, who is pulled into the schemes of McConaughey’s Kenny Wells in trying to find gold in Indonesia. The plan almost kills them as they spend days in the hot, tropical »

For Killer Films, Sundance Is Like Planning a Snow-Covered Wedding

21 January 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The organizing starts around Thanksgiving and doesn’t let up through the New Year. For Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler, the co-founding producers of the indie powerhouse Killer Films, the Sundance Film Festival is an annual trek through the snow that dates back three decades. The duo have sold 25 films here, from the 1995 Todd Haynes drama “Safe” starring Julianne Moore to 2002’s “One Hour Photo,” featuring an eerie turn from Robin Williams.

To listen to them reminisce about their memories from past visits to Park City is to step into a time capsule. “I definitely have the nostalgia stories of bringing physical cans of film,” says Koffler. “My hands were cold and the metal was cold as I put it on the luggage belt. It was a physical experience that has disappeared.”

This year, Killer Films came to Sundance with four more titles that capture the New York-based production company »

Annapurna Television is partnering with the Coen brothers on a limited series Western called “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” Sources tell Variety that Annapurna intends to pursue an innovative approach that could combine television and theatrical.

Joe Carnahan’s Script For The Uncharted Movie Is Now Complete

8 January 2017 3:08 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a long and winding road for Sony’s live-action adaptation of the hit video game series Uncharted. For several years now the studio’s been trying to get it off the ground and so far, there hasn’t been a ton of progress made on it. That’s due in part to the revolving door of directors that have flirted with the project. From David O. Russell to Neil Burger and even Seth Gordon, several filmmakers have come and gone.

Now, Shawn Levy is attached to helm, and it looks like this time, things will stick. On writing duty is Joe Carnahan, best known for his gritty reboot of The A-Team and the excellent Liam Neeson vs. wolves film, The Grey, and earlier this week, he took to Instagram to announce that he’s finally completed the script. It wasn’t just any old announcement, either, as »

Joe Carnahan Reveals That He's Completed His Rewrite Of The Uncharted Movie Script

8 January 2017 8:43 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, The Grey) is the latest in a long line of Hollywood creatives hired to work on Sony's live-action Uncharted movie.  Though he's known as a writer/director, Carnahan is only working on the Uncharted script as the film will be helmed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, This Is Where I Leave You).  Carnahan and Levy are but two of the latest names signing up for the project after creatives such as David O. Russell (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook), Neil Burger (Limitless, Divergent) and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, upcoming Baywatch reboot) have all departed the project for various reasons. The film has been in development since 2008 and the closest it ever came to actually filming was a few years back when Mark Wahlberg was attached to star.  Wit the disappointing performances of Assassin's Creed and Warcraft, Sony has to at least feel a little »

2017: The Year of ‘The Leftovers’… Plus 9 Other, Less Exciting TV Shows To Look Forward To

3 January 2017 8:57 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The beginning of a new year is a time for excitement. What marks a fresh start for some means pressure to keep a good thing going for others, and still yet an anticipated ending for a few more. After all, January signifies opportunity; opportunity for the best to begin, develop, or come to an ideal conclusion.

We’re talking about television, of course. Sure, a new year can mean a lot to individuals, communities, and even countries, but let’s be real: The most enticing aspects of the coming year don’t take pace in the real world. There are many new shows — more than ever, really — set to debut in 2017, a boatload of returning favorites we hope can meet (or exceed) the high bar they’ve set for themselves, and at least one outstanding series set to air its final episode.
