6 February 2017 8:40 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Justin Timberlake is on a roll! After celebrating his first-ever Oscar nod with Matt Damon at the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon, the singer continued the fun at The Hollywood Reporter's Nominees Night in Beverly Hills. Every short but important moment he spent on the red carpet was beautiful, like when he stopped to pose for pictures and flashed a sexy smile or when he stared straight into our souls. Unfortunately, his wife, Jessica Biel, did not make an appearance, but Justin was in good company with producers Julie Yorn and Carla Hacken. The Oscars are on Feb. 26, and Justin's song "Can't Stop the Feeling" from the animated movie Trolls is up for best original song. In addition to being excited, he recently revealed that he's "really humbled by the whole thing." We're keeping our fingers crossed that Justin strikes gold!

Oscar-Nominated Producers Compare Notes at Santa Barbara Panel

4 February 2017 12:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The shepherds behind each of this year’s best picture Oscar nominees, as well as one of the animated feature contenders, broke down their projects’ various challenges at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s annual producers panel Saturday.

But for a category that set a record this year for female producers nominated (five of the panelists were women), gender parity was a notable topic of conversation.

“I view it as a responsibility to support female voices,” said “La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz. “In front of and behind the camera, it is a stated goal of ours to make sure that we are trying to represent stories told by women.”

Hidden Figures” writer, director and producer Theodore Melfi concurred, noting that it must be viewed as a responsibility for all if the industry status quo is going to change. “Everyone has to do it,” he said, pointing out the »

Bel Powley to Play Matthew McConaughey’s Drug-Addicted Daughter in ‘White Boy Rick’

1 February 2017 3:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British actress Bel Powley has joined Matthew McConaughey in drug dealer drama “White Boy Rick” to portray his addict daughter.

Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic, “White Boy Rick” recaps the true-life story of Richard Wershe Jr. who became an undercover informant at the age of 14 before becoming a major dealer until he was arrested at age 17. The title role has not yet been cast.

Bruce Dern will play a grandfather while Jennifer Jason Leigh and Rory Cochrane are set to star as FBI agents who began working with Wershe Jr. as a confidential informant.

Yann Demange is directing the project for Sony-based Studio 8 as its second project following “Solutrean.” John Lesher is producing, as is Julie Yorn (who received a best picture Academy Award nomination for “Hell or High Water”) of Lbi Entertainment. Protozoa Pictures’ Darren Aronofsky and Scott Franklin are also producing.

Oscars: Record Six Black Actors Nominated, Diversity Improves After Controversy

24 January 2017 8:20 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After last year’s nominations spawned #OscarsSoWhite, all eyes were on the Academy Award nominations Tuesday – and in stark contrast to 2016, this year proved to be a much stronger year for diversity, both in front of and behind the camera.

While no actors of color were nominated the last two years, this year saw every acting category recognizing a person of color. A record-tying (with 2007) seven minority actors were recognized, including a record-setting six black actors.

In best actor, Denzel Washington landed his seventh nomination for “Fences,” extending his record as the most nominated black actor. His co-star Viola Davis was nominated in supporting actress, which also saw Davis’ “The Help” co-star Octavia Spencer nominated for “Hidden Figures” and Naomie Harris for “Moonlight.” With three nods, Davis is now the most nominated black actress.

In the lead actress category, Ruth Negga was nominated for her work in “Loving.” And in supporting actor, »

The Merc With a Mouth isn’t a character to play by the rulebook, so it’s almost fitting that Deadpool, the scrappy little underdog that arguably became 2016’s biggest success story, has flipped the bird at convention to collect a series of nominations during the most prestigious period on the Hollywood calendar: awards season.

Marquee blockbusters, particularly those based on comic book characters, often struggle to make much of a dent on the awards circuit, but to date, Tim Miller’s R-rated solo movie has landed a Golden Globes nomination and, perhaps most surprising of all, a nomination for a Writer’s Guild Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Now, you can add the PGAs to Deadpool‘s growing collection.

Deadpool, Hidden Figures and Hacksaw Ridge land coveted PGA nominations

Deadpool, Hidden Figures and Hacksaw Ridge land coveted PGA nominationsDeadpool, Hidden Figures and Hacksaw Ridge land coveted PGA nominationsAdriana Floridia1/10/2017 1:23:00 Pm

The Producers Guild Awards are an incredibly important pre-cursor to the Oscars.

Today's announcement means there's a chance for a few underdog films to get that prestigious Best Picture nomination, and the most surprising of the bunch is Deadpool. Deadpool has been picking up a lot of awards steam lately, between this and its Writers Guild Award nomination. A Best Picture Oscar nomination would be unprecedented, as superhero films, let alone R-Rated comedic ones, have never been awards contenders. It's exciting to consider that the awards conversation can shift to more mainstream films, because if you ask the majority of audiences, a lot of them would call Deadpool one of their favourite films of the year.

Also among the nominations are the same movies we've been hearing about all through awards season, »

BAFTA loves “La La Land” and the Producers Guild of America nominations are revealed

10 January 2017 9:25 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Moments ago, the Producers Guild of America (or PGA) announced their nominations. This comes on the heels of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (better known as BAFTA) announcing their nominees in the wee early hours. Between BAFTA and PGA, a few pieces of the precursor puzzle have been put together. The Oscars still have a bunch of mystery to them, but you can make the case that the Best Picture lineup will strongly reflect what the Producers Guild opted to do. I doubt there will be 100% correlation, since there usually isn’t, but the majority of those cited likely will show up. Especially the ones also cited by the British Academy, their week is off to a strong start, no question about it. Both of these precursors are notable because they do indeed contain crossover with the Academy. As such, BAFTA and PGA actually matter more when »
