Experts' early Oscar predictions: 'Joy,' 'The Revenant,' Leo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett ...'

25 August 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

After three previous losses in the Oscars' Best Picture race ("Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle," "The Fighter"), director David O. Russell is now out front to win for "Joy," according to the collective predictions of 14 experts at Gold Derby. See each expert's individual rankings here. "Joy" has a narrow lead (7 to 1 odds) over "The Revenant" by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (15/2), who prevailed six months ago with victories for Best Picture and Director for "Birdman." However, Inarritu has a slight edge (9/2) over Russell (5/1) to repeat as Best Director and "The Revenant" star, still-Oscarless Leonardo DiCaprio, leads the Best Actor battle (10/3). DiCaprio has a slight edge over recent champ Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl" (4/1).  Strongly ahead to win Best Actress is two-time past Oscar winner Cate Blanchett ("Carol") with 13/5 odds over »

“Joy” is the latest Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell project in the Oscar hunt

25 August 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Between Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, it’s undeniable that Jennifer Lawrence and filmmaker David O. Russell have a tremendous thing going. Their working relationship is as strong as any other in the business. I’m of the opinion that they’ve put forward two Oscar worthy projects, one of which was able to get Lawrence an Academy Award for Best Actress (for Silver Linings Playbook). Both times, Russell found himself nominated for Best Director and in either Best Adapted Screenplay or Best Original Screenplay, while the other time Lawrence was up for Best Supporting Actress. That’s a winning formula if ever there was one. Later this year, they’ll attempt to go three for three with Joy, a biographical dramedy that will also be the third time they’ve worked together with Bradley Cooper (who also has been nominated twice, as well as co-starred with Lawrence in »

Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

7 Things We Learned From Quentin Tarantino’s New Interview

24 August 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Quentin Tarantino is never one to hold back his opinion. The acclaimed filmmaker dished on everything from the possibility of another “Kill Bill” installment to his distaste for Cate Blanchett movies and “True Detective” in his interview with New York magazine. And if you ask Tarantino, Ben Affleck is no David O. Russell when it comes to casting films.

The writer-director also teased his upcoming Western thriller, “The Hateful Eight.”

Here are the most interesting tidbits from the colorful interview.

The “Kill Bill” franchise may still have some life in it:

“No, it’s not off the table, but we’ll see.”

Tarantino loved “How I Met Your Mother,” but hated “True Detective” from the get-go.

“The last two shows that I watched all the way were ‘Justified’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother.'”

“I tried to watch the first episode of season one [of ‘True Detective’], and I didn’t get into it at all. »

The annoying part of Quentin Tarantino's new interview

24 August 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You may have heard that Quentin Tarantino's new interview at Vulture is entertaining, and that's because it is. He discusses "The Hateful Eight," perceptions about his career and influence, and his opinion of other filmmakers. He's especially keen on David O. Russell. Many Twitter users have said that the Q&A is filled with "truth bombs," and that's sort of true, but it's also filled with tired old biases disguised as brave stances, and one particular quote caused me to twinge in agitation and boredom. "I don’t know if we’re going to be talking about The Town or The Kids Are All Right or An Education 20 or 30 years from now. Notes on a Scandal is another one. Philomena. Half of these Cate Blanchett movies — they’re all just like these arty things. I’m not saying they’re bad movies, but I don’t think most of them have a shelf life. »

Tarantino Opens Up about 'Hateful Eight,' Disses Cate Blanchett and 'True Detective,' and More

24 August 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Quentin Tarantino can be counted on to take as long as he needs to finish a movie, and to hand in something longer than the two-hour industry norm when he absolutely has to five months from now--he is always questing for perfection. He did take some time out to do some advance PR and talks about finishing "The Hateful Eight," why he likes Jennifer Jason Leigh, Aaron Sorkin, Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell, what's wrong with "True Detective" and Cate Blanchett's "arty" movies, why he writes scripts by hand and a whole lot more in his (already) controversial Lane Brown interview. Herewith, some highlights:  On Westerns:  One thing that’s always been true is that there’s no real film genre that better reflects the values and the problems of a given decade than the Westerns made during that specific decade. The Westerns of the ’50s reflected Eisenhower »

“The Martian”: Oscar predictions for August

21 August 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s almost crunch time folks! Yes, this is the last set of predictions before we start to get into fall festival season (pay close attention to the New York Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, and Toronto Film Festival), which in turn launches the Oscar race. As such, you won’t see a ton of changes here this time around, but be prepared for a lot of contenders to move around during the next update or two. I might be going to twice a month for predictions come September, so it’s going to be interesting seeing how these potential players do or do not shape up in the race. As such, this update represents a definite demarcation in the year. From here on out, it’s truly awards season for all of us… The latest Trailer for The Martian (which you can see below) keeps it at the tip top for me right now, »

Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Downey Jr. Topline Forbes’ Highest Paid Actors List

21 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Another year, another Forbes list detailing the highest earnings in Hollywood for us to dissect. Much to the surprise of no one, it’s the franchise stalwarts toplining the actors and actresses list, with Robert Downey Jr. and The Hunger GamesJennifer Lawrence occupying the top spots in each respective category.

First up, the industry’s highest-earning actresses. Unsurprisingly, Lawrence takes the crown as the biggest star in the field, with her continuing success in Lionsgate’s Ya franchise supplemented with roles in the likes of the X-Men series and David O. Russell’s Joy. In claiming the coveted number one spot, the actress pipped Marvel stalwart Scarlett Johansson and Melissa McCarthy, while China’s Bingbing Fan and Jennifer Aniston rounded out the first five places.

As Forbes’ Natalie Robehmed notes, Lawrence’s position atop the highest earners comes down to The Hunger Games, stating that “no other actress could play Katniss Everdeen, »

20 August 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Forbes has today unveiled its annual list of the highest paid actress in Hollywood, and it’s no surprise to see Jennifer Lawrence at the top of the list.

The 25-year-old Hunger Games star has pocketed $52 million pre-tax earnings over the last 2 months to top the new list, $16.5 million ahead of the current No.2, Avengers star Scarlett Johansson, who earned a cool $35.5 million

In addition to the usual Us contingent present on the list, their is a global feel to some of the actresses on this year’s rundown, including Chinese actress Bingbing Fan, who featured in last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, who ranks No.4 with a $21 million haul.

Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy is No.3 on the list, and is one of the four on the list to earn over $20 million in the period. Helped by the success of Spy and Tammy, McCarthy has now become a true A-list star. »

The Films of David O. Russell, Ranked From Worst to Best

20 August 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David O. Russell's directing career is as unconventional and eccentric as the characters in his films. Despite his flare and tabloid scandals over on-set disputes, the self-taught director's recent success speaks for itself. His career splits into two parts, the niche-oriented quirky dark comedies of his early years and the widely popular, copiously Oscar nominated films of recent years.    On top of characters that go to extremes, his distinct style stamps the films with a unique mark of chaos. He typically lights 360 degrees and uses a Steadicam with a small apparatus, relying on the camera's mobility for long takes. He creates a recongizable rhythm through the liveliness of both the visuals and the narrative content. Inspired by Frank Capra and his ability to capture the essence of community, Russell navigates the relationship between character and environment. He uses his keen sense of depth and the strategically choreographed camera movements to reflect the. »

Bradley Cooper will heat up the Oscar race in “Burnt”

19 August 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By now, it seems like a perennial contender for Oscars is none other than Bradley Cooper. He’s on quite the run of late, between his collaborations with David O. Russell, the stunning success that was American Sniper, and just being one of our most charismatic A-list stars. Later this year, he’ll look to again appeal to Academy voters, not just with a supporting turn for Russell in Joy, but also in the culinary comedy/drama Burnt, which has taken a bit to develop. Cooper has helped shepherd it to the screen (it’s now test screening, leading to some early reactions to his performance), and judging from the recent Trailer that dropped (which you can see at the end of the piece), this is going to be one intense flick. If things break the right way for it, you could also see it becoming another Oscar vehicle for Cooper. »

New Joy Poster Is A Strange And Powerful Lie

18 August 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The latest film by David O. Russell, which obviously stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, probably doesn’t even need a great marketing budget. It’s the third year of this group, and the first two have probably locked up ticket sales for this one. The trailer didn’t hurt anything either, showing off a very unusual character for Lawrence.

The film has finally released a poster, and it’s a strange shift in tone, that is basically lying to you about what’s headed your way. There’s nothing of the nearly insane person we get in some moments of the trailer to be found in this utterly tranquil slice of reality.

Lily Tomlin on Coming-Out Press Conferences & Kicking Nat Wolff's Ass

In 2014, Michelle Obama and Tom Hanks toasted Lily Tomlin's lifetime achievement at the Kennedy Center — an honor that didn't mark the end of her career so much as kick off a comeback. Nearly five decades after her debut on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, the 75 year-old is hot: Her Netflix show Grace and Frankie, costarring Jane Fonda, was just renewed for a second season and helped Tomlin earn her 22nd Emmy nomination.

Jennifer Lawrence looks to the sky for 'Joy' and fewer franchise flicks

17 August 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

She's almost done with "The Hunger Games" franchise.  We "think" she's almost done playing Mystique in the "X-Men" movies.  What's next?  More "Joy" most likely. You might not have realized this, but Jennifer Lawrence's commitment to filming and promoting both those franchise has limited the amount of prestige work the Oscar winning actress can handle in a given calendar year. She basically was able to fit in one or two more "serious" pictures in-between each blockbuster, but that's changing following the completion of "X-Men: Apocalypse" this summer.  Lawrence will next segue into Morten Tyldum's "Passengers," a Sci-Fi tale about a man (Chris Pratt) on a ship transporting thousands of people across the galaxy whose hibernation chamber malfunctions causing him to awake sixty years before they arrive at their destination.  Lonely, he awakens a female passenger played by Lawrence.  Whether she'll be happy to accompany him remains to be seen, »
