This morning the BAFTAs announced their nominees for 2018.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts is the biggest awards group outside of America. Traditionally, the films nominated here are also reflected at the Oscars.

There were a few surprises with this mornings nominees, namely another omission of any female director in the directing category. Greta Gerwig has been expected to land this nomination within most awards groups, but as of yet keeps being overlooked for her directorial debut Lady Bird. Lady Bird also didn't make the cut in the Best Film category, but the BAFTAs only nominate five, where at the Oscars there can be up to ten nominees.

“The Shape of Water” leads the BAFTA nominations

In the wee hours of the morning, the British Academy announced their BAFTA nominations, putting into place yet another major Oscar precursor. This voting block, known as the British vote, does hold some sway with the Academy. At the Academy Awards, they represent a solid portion of membership, so while SAG will always be the largest delegation, this one isn’t too far behind. That makes it a precursor worth taking note of. Obviously, as you’ll see below, there are some release date oddities that push some films from last year into this year, and of course exclude some of this year’s contenders until next year. That’s just how it goes with BAFTA… Leading the way was The Shape of Water with a dozen nominations, far ahead of any other film. Those 12 citations set the pace, while next in line were Darkest Hour and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,

The 2018 BAFTA Nominations are here

Author: Jon Lyus

The 2018 awards season has well and truly begun. Over the weekend the Hollywood Foreign Press Association threw out their Golden Globes in a politically charged ceremony which was as much of a comment on the biggest stories from the industry last year as any gold statue handed out. Today the awards spotlight swings over to the UK as BAFTA, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, announced the nominations for their 2018 Film Awards ceremony.

As in previous years the British Academy will endeavour to be seen as more than just another stepping stone to the Oscars. While there are a number of British-specific awards handed out on the night, the expectation is that homegrown productions will be high on the list of nominees. The 2018 BAFTA Film Awards will be handed out in a ceremony in London on the 18th of February of this year.

Review: The Death of Stalin (2017)

Anybody who discusses satire in audio-visual media at some point must mention the work of Armando Iannucci. Creator of TV’s The Thick Of It and Veep, with credits that include The Day Today and Alan Partridge, his work is some of the finest in Comedy. And in 2009, Iannucci made his big screen full feature directorial debut with The Thick Of It spin-off In The Loop (one of the best comedies of our times) and now, Iannucci casts his eye to even darker – and even more volatile – political territory with The Death of Stalin.

As concepts go, this film has a pitch black core, as it not only delves into a figure whose actions have reverberated throughout socio-political history but in looking at the events surrounding his death in 1953 and the power struggles within the Soviet Union, it is a brazen era, to say the least, in which to set a Comedy.

Second Opinion – The Death of Stalin (2017)

The Death of Stalin, 2017.

Directed by Armando Iannucci.

Starring Simon Russell Beale, Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Andrea Riseborough, Jason Isaacs, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin, and Paul Whitehouse.

Synopsis:

Follows the Soviet dictator’s last days and depicts the chaos of the regime after his death.

Who knew gulags and mass graves, systematic rape and murder could be so uproarious. Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin is a raucous, fantastically strident, acerbic critique of post-Stalin Russia. Like In The Loop and Veep/The Thick of It, he finds poetry amidst fucks and grandiose insults whilst deftly dismantling power with a Chelsea smile.

There’s a fine line between satire and exploitation and Iannucci treads it with a swaggering confidence. He plays up the hysterics of a Stalin-less Russia but never errs towards exploitation. There is still real tragedy to the action of the power-hungry cabinet, even amidst the laughs.

As Stalin falls ill,

The Death of Stalin review – Armando Iannucci has us tremblin' in the Kremlin

The Thick of It and Veep writer’s tilt at Soviet-era satire, which opens the Toronto film festival, boasts an outstanding cast, with Simon Russell Beale as the secret police chief with a satanic surprise

Fear rises like gas from a corpse in Armando Iannucci’s brilliant horror-satire The Death Of Stalin. It’s a sulphurous black comedy about backstairs Kremlin intrigue following the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953 – adapted by Iannucci, David Schneider and Ian Martin from the French graphic novel series by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin.

Faced with the unthinkable demise of Stalin, so long revered as nothing less than a god, these Soviet dignitaries panic, plot and go in and out of denial: a bizarre, dysfunctional hokey cokey of the mind. Everyone is of course initially terrified of saying out loud that he is dead – a quasi-regicidal act, which could, in any case, turn out to

Hilarious Trailer for The Death Of Stalin with Steve Buscemi and Jeffery Tambor

"I'm the peacemaker, and I'll fuck up anyone who gets in my way."

Steve Buscemi... you had me at Steve Buscemi. But then you add Jeffery Tambor and Rupert Friend, and I want to see this movie even more.The Death of Stalin is a political satire film based on the moments after Stalin died and it looks really funny.

As I watched the trailer, there were multiple moments that I just thought landed the comedy perfectly. It reminds me almost of Dr. Strangelove in many ways. All these comical representations of political figures dealing with an issue of a controversial leader passing away and what happens next. It's directed by Armando Iannucci who is well known for political satire. All the performances look hilarious and I love, that although it takes place in Russia, all the actors are basically playing it straight. No one is trying to do a forced Russian accent.

‘The Death of Stalin’ Trailer: Armando Iannucci Targets Soviet Russia

While his work on Veep led to one of the funniest shows on television, we’ve been missing Armando Iannucci’s specific brand of political humor in the cinema. He’s now finally making his In the Loop follow-up with The Death of Stalin and ahead of a fall festival premiere, the first trailer has arrived.

“A lot of it is based on true stuff, but what we’re trying to do is not just concentrate on these people. Within the story you see how their deliberations impact on people all over the empire of the Soviet Union,” Iannucci told THR. “So it’s quite an expansive, quite an ambitious scale. It’s both intimate and very, very vast at the same time.”

Starring Adrian McLoughlin, Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend, and Jason Isaacs, check out the hilarious preview below.

eOne and Armando Iannucci (In The Loop) have delivered the very first trailer for the upcoming feature comedy The Death Of Stalin, which is set to arrive in UK cinemas from October 20th.

The film boasts an all-star cast, including [deep breath] Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Timothy Dalton, Toby Kebbell, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Adrian McLoughlin, Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs and Paul Whitehouse.

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci.

In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.

A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, The Death of Stalin is
