Watch: 50-Minute Roundtable With Directors/Producers Of 'Frozen,' 'Monsters University' & More

28 February 2014 3:22 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In 2004 the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature was in it’s fourth year. Three very different films were nominated (“The Triplets of Belleville,” “Brother Bear,” and “Finding Nemo”), with ‘Nemo’ taking home the award. Since then demand for high-performing animated films has skyrocketed. In 2013, three animated features made it into the top 10 grossing movies of the year (“Despicable Me 2,” “Frozen,” and “Monsters University”), bringing in over $600 million combined. Needless to say, Hollywood plans on riding this wave for the foreseeable future, and The Hollywood Reporter recently held a roundtable discussion with some of this year’s Best Animated Feature nominees. THR film editor Gregg Kilday and technology writer Carolyn Giardina brought together Chris Buck (co-director of “Frozen”), Dan Scanlon (director of “Monsters University”), Chris Wedge (director of “Epic”), Kristine Belson (producer of “The Croods”), and Chris Meledandri (Illumination CEO and a producer of »

"Gravity" Dominates BAFTA Nominations

8 January 2014 1:16 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the nominations for the British Academy Film Awards and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" led the pack with 11 nominations including Best Film, British Film (who knew "Gravity" was a British movie?), Director for Cuaron, Screenplay for Cuaron and his son Jonas, and Actress for Sandra Bullock.

The biggest snub in my humble opinion was "Dallas Buyers Club" which appeared nowhere on the nominations list. Apparently, the British Academy did not deem Matthew McConaughey or Jared Leto award-worthy!

The BAFTA Awards will take place on Feb. 16 at the Royal Opera house in London. Will "Gravity" emerge as the victorious movie that night? And by the way, "Gravity" was my No. 1 favorite film of 2013!

Here's the complete list of BAFTA nominations:

BAFTA And The American Society Of Cinematographers Announce Their Nominations

8 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early this morning saw the announcement of the nominations for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards for 2013. For the most part, they look like all of the other guild nominations we’ve seen over the past month or so (including all five director nominees who were just nominated for the DGA’s top award), but there are a few interesting differences to take note of.

First off, Philomena has a much stronger presence here, but given that it is a British film, it’s hardly surprising. You may also notice a lot of love for Behind the Candelabra, a film that was only shown on TV in the States, making it ineligible for theatrical awards.

However, aside from that, just about all the major players are here. Gravity leads the pack with 11 nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, and Best Actress. 12 Years a »

British Academy Goes Hollywood (Once Again): BAFTA Nominees 2014 Including Several Surprises (Adams In!)

8 January 2014 3:29 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

BAFTA Awards 2014: ‘American Hustle,’ ‘Gravity,’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ tops (photo: BAFTA 2014 nominees Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence in ‘American Hustle’) Nominations for the 2014 BAFTA Awards were announced a little while ago. As usual, British Academy of Film and Television Arts have placed their focus on Big English-Language Productions — i.e., Hollywood and Anglo-Hollywood fare. (I mean, Gravity, Rush, and Saving Mr. Banks are considered "British" productions here.) Small British films and non-Hollywood productions have been — once again as usual — all but ignored. The 2014 BAFTA winners will be announced on February 16. Best Film: 12 Years A Slave Anthony Katagas, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Steve McQueen; American Hustle Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, Megan Ellison, Jonathan Gordon; Captain Phillips Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca; Gravity Alfonso Cuarón, David Heyman; Philomena Gabrielle Tana, Steve Coogan, Tracey Seaward.

The BAFTA Award nominations 2014

News Ryan Lambie 8 Jan 2014 - 07:57

The nominations for this year's BAFTA film awards have been announced. And we've got them all for you right here...

In a live broadcast streamed this morning, the British Academy announced its nominees for this year's BAFTAs. We didn't have the time or the money to get hold of a tuxedo in time for the event, but we did manage to put on an extremely posh dressing gown.

The winners of the coveted metal BAFTA face will be announced next month, but for now, take a look at the list of nominees below, and see how your favourite films, actors and filmmakers of last year tallies with the Academy's. There are few genuine surprises among the choices, but we're guessing that Frozen's a shoo-in for best animation.

The BAFTA Nominations Are Here!

7 January 2014 11:54 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The award season is in full swing with the last 12 months being one of the most open races to the finish line (that’s the Academy Awards to you and me) in many a year. Will Scorsese score with his crazy look at the financial scoundrel The Wolf Of Wall Street? Perhaps Alfonso Cuaron will reach the stratosphere with his spectacular space thriller Gravity? Could there be a late arrival to the party, like Peter Berg’s brutal military biopic Lone Survivor, and upset the odds that are arguably favouring Steve McQueen’s harrowing 12 Years A Slave?

In the meantime, the UK’s very own British Academy Film and Television Awards have been announced (or BAFTA’s) and offer further indication of the names to be called out come Oscar night. Celebrated British actors Luke Evans and Helen McCrory gave us the line-up set to fight it out on Sunday »

Gravity leads BAFTA nominations

7 January 2014 11:44 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Updated With Analysis: Gravity leads the pack with 11 nominations; 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle follow closely with 10.

Captain Phillips has nine nominations. Behind the Candelabra and Saving Mr. Banks have five each.

Philomena, Rush and The Wolf of Wall Street have four nominations. Blue Jasmine, The Great Gatsby, Inside Llewyn Davis and Nebraska have each been nominated three times. The Act of Killing, The Butler and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug have two nominations apiece.

Full list of nominees below.

The nominations didn’t offer any huge surprises, but there are some notable developments.

Dallas Buyers Club was shut out of the BAFTA nominations, which might have been expected for Matthew McConaughey for lead actor and Jared Leto for supporting. Idris Elba missed out on a mention for his role as Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom; as did James McAvoy for the low-budget Filth or Robert Redford for All Is Lost. [link »

Watch: 50-Minute Animation Chat with Filmmakers of 'Frozen' & More

7 January 2014 11:16 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the announcement of the nominations for the Directors Guild Awards, now we're looking at the directors behind this year's biggest animated films. We've previously featured The Hollywood Reporter's awards roundtable chat with some of the prime live-action directors from 2013, and now the trade has sat down with a handful of animation filmmakers including Chris Buck, Dan Scanlon, Chris Wedge, Kristine Belson and Chris Meledandri. Buck, Scanlon and Wedge directed Frozen, Monsters University and Epic respectively while Belson produced The Croods and Meledandri produced Despicable Me 2. It's a fascinating discussion about animation and what goes into these films. Watch it! Here's The Hollywood Reporter's animation filmmaker's roundtable: In the above discussion, they discuss how animation isn't just about making movies for kids (a common misconception among some clueless adults). In addition, they talk about the challenge of casting known celebrity voices, but wanting audiences to eventually get so involved with the character, »

Monsters University Short Party Central to Debut with Muppets Most Wanted

7 January 2014 10:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney and Pixar have announced the debut of an all-new animated short, this time focusing on the characters from this past summer's Monsters University. Party Central will be attached to Muppets Most Wanted when it hits theaters May 21, 2014. This six-minute spin-off follows Mike, Sully and their Oozma Kappa frat brothers as they try to throw one mean monster blowout of a bash. They become quite dismayed when they realize no one is going to show up. Putting some extra inter-dimensional doors to good use, they get creative and pull in all sorts of secret guests (no spoilers!) to keep the party rocking through out the night (will we see an appearance from some of the biggest monsters in history?). Entertainment Weekly has released the first photo from the short, which made its debut at last year's D23 Expo.

Monsters University story supervisor Kelsey Mann wrote and directed Party Central. The »
