Golden Globes 2014 predictions (image: Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale in ‘American Hustle’ movie poster) They may be ridiculed, derided, and dismissed, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globes ceremony remains the second most important awards-season event — in terms of international public awareness — trailing only the Academy Awards. The 2014 Golden Globes ("2013 Golden Globes," if you want to be technical about it) will be announced by Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, and Aziz Ansari (very, very early) on Thursday morning, December 12, 2013. Who will be the nominees? Which movies and performances will Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members want to check out after they hear the names and/or titles of this year’s nominees? Well, below are our 2014 Golden Globes predictions. Like the Academy Awards, Hollywood guilds, and most critics’ groups, quality is an important element in the HFPA members’ selections; but then again, »

In his role as Jury President of the Marrakech International Film Festival, Martin Scorsese described the method that he and his fellow jurors would apply when watching films: “We will not be like critics,” he said. “We love films too much.” The stars were out in full force at the Marrakech International Film Festival. The names accompanying The Wolf of Wall Street director on judging duty would have graced Cannes. The list included actresses Marion Cotillard, Patricia Clarkson and Golshifteh Farahani and directors Paolo Sorrentino, Fatih Akin, Park Chan-Wook, Amat Escalante, Narjiss Nejjar and Anurag Kashyap. The prize for best film went […] »

Along with critics, filmmakers also like to get into the ranking of the year's best movies. So far we've seen the likes of Quentin Tarantino and John Waters weigh in, and now another auteur has decided to put down his choices for the best 2013 had to offer, and as always, it's a fascinating look at what connects with creative minds. Pedro Almodovar dropped his list of his top 12 movies of the year, and it's probably not a big shock he favors the arthouse. Landing at the top of the list is "The Act Of Killing," with the already highly-acclaimed documentary earning yet another accolade. Ulrich Seidl got two slots for "Paradise: Faith" and "Paradise: Love," two-thirds of his trilogy, while we're really happy to see some love given to Jeff Nichols' "Mud" and Ursula Meier's "Sister." Paolo Sorrentino gets a nod for "The Great Beauty" and so too »

So, everyone loved "Gravity," right? A big slice of sci-fi with a space adventure and groundbreaking visual effects all wrapped up into one of the best cinematic experiences of the year, right? Well, not so much for the New Yorker's Richard Brody. The film columnist dropped his Best and Worst of 2013 today and before we get in the latter category, it must be acknowledged that his top ten is pretty tight. He's one of the few standing up for Terrence Malick's "To the Wonder," which he ties in the top spot with Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street." It's also nice to see the love spread to Shane Carruth's affecting mindbender "Upstream Color" and David Lowery's "Ain't Them Bodies Saints." But when it comes to the survival movies and travelogues of 2013, Brody passed. Trilogy capper "Before Midnight," Paolo Sorrentino's mostly well-received "The Great Beauty, »

The Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. has seen more than a few tie victories in recent years: The very first time I voted, in 2006, there was a lead-actor split between Forest Whitaker and Sacha Baron Cohen. In 2010, we awarded best director to David Fincher and Olivier Assayas, and just last year, Jennifer Lawrence and Emmanuelle Riva shared the actress prize. Whenever this happens — usually as the result of a deadlock between a near-certain Oscar contender and a gonzo left-field choice — something like a general cheer goes up from the membership for having arrived at such a happy but unexpected compromise.
Still, in my eight years as a Lafca member, I’ve never seen us share the wealth quite so lavishly as we did during yesterday’s spirited and sometimes contentious five-and-a-half-hour voting meeting, which resulted in no »

French actor takes snowy Berlin in her stride as she wins prize at a European film awards dominated by The Great Beauty
The wet snow that fell on Berlin on Saturday evening had nothing on the froideur of Catherine Deneuve, in town to receive a lifetime achievement prize at the European film awards and not best pleased about it either. "Lifetime achievement – those are not good words," the 70-year-old French actor told the press before the ceremony. "To achieve life is to mean that you are dead. It's not an award you give to someone who is still alive."
Deneuve was honoured for an impressive 50-year back catalogue that stretches from roles in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Repulsion and Belle de Jour through to more recent work in the likes of Lars von Trier's Dancer in the Dark and François Ozon's Potiche. Along the way she has been »

Los Angeles Film Critics Awards winners 2013 (photo: Sandra Bullock in ‘Gravity’) The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (Lafca), which has been around since the early ’70s, announced earlier today, December 8, 2013, their list of 2013 winners and runners-up. Although there were a handful of offbeat choices, what’s most surprising is how mainstream were most of the Los Angeles Film Critics’ picks this year — Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity was the top film, with a total of four wins — and that there were no less than three ties, including one for Best Picture: Gravity and Spike Jonze’s Her. See below. (See also: Full list of Boston Society of Film Critics 2013 winners.) Best Picture (tie): Gravity and Her. Best Foreign-Language Film: Blue Is the Warmest Color, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche. Runner-up: The Great Beauty, directed by Paolo Sorrentino.

South Korean director Lee Su-jin took the top festival prize, The Golden Star, for his drama "Han Gong-Ju" (gorgeous Korean trailer below).

Doing little to clarify an awards season with multiple strong contenders, the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. named Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” and Spike Jonze’s “Her” the top films of 2013, in a tie victory. Both films are Warner Bros. releases.
It was not the first tie for best picture in the group’s history: In 1975, Lafca’s first year of voting, there was a split between “Dog Day Afternoon” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” while in 1976, “Network” and “Rocky” shared the honors.
Nor was it the only surprise twofer the L.A. critics announced in a series of extremely close races that spread the love around. Cate Blanchett (Sony Classics’ “Blue Jasmine”) and Adele Exarchopoulos (IFC’s “Blue Is the Warmest Color”) shared the award for actress, while James Franco (A24′s “Spring Breakers”) and Jared Leto (Focus Features’ “Dallas Buyers Club”) shared the laurels for supporting actor. »

Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty was the big winner at the 26th European Film Awards in Berlin, picking up four of the silver statuettes for European Film, European Director, European Actor for Toni Servillo, and European Editor for Cristiano Travaglioli.
The Great Beauty is Italy’s Oscar entry this year and had won the EurAsia Grand Prix at Tallinn’s Black Nights Film Festival a matter of days before the awards ceremony in Berlin.
Sorrentino could not personally accept the two awards as he is serving on the jury at the Marrakech Film festival, but producer Nicola Giuliano brought members of the cast and crew on stage to receive the audience’s applause.

Marrakech, Morocco – Paolo Sorrentino was 1800 miles away in Morocco when his three European Film Award wins for The Great Beauty were announced Saturday in Berlin. The Great Beauty took home the best film, director and actor prizes at the film awards, but Sorrentino was absent. He had been in Morocco for the past week serving as a main competition juror at the Marrakech International Film Festival, and he had just handed out the best director trophy in the festival’s closing night when his own wins occurred.

While it has pretty much no bearing on the Oscars, winning a few key categories at the European Film Awards does serve to raise the profile of some movies that are in contention. Now, we can certainly bet that more Academy voters will be popping in their screeners of "The Great Beauty." Paolo Sorrentino's dreamlike Italian drama has won Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Toni Servillo) and Best Editor at the European Film Awards, handed out this evening in Berlin. Other big winners of note include "The Act Of Killing" in the documentary category, as well as Ari Folman's "The Congress" for Best Animated Film. The Matthias Schoenaerts-starring "Death Of A Shadow" won in the short category, while Veerle Baetans (one of our Breakthrough Performances Of 2013) took Best Actress for her turn in Belgium's Oscar contending "Broken Circle Breakdown."

As I anticipated, "The Great Beauty," Paolo Sorrentino's visually extravagant, Fellini-referencing reflection on contemporary Rome, emerged the big winner at tonight's European Film Awards in Berlin, taking four prizes for European Film of the Year, European Director of the Year, European Actor of the Year for Toni Servillo and European Editor of the Year for Cristiano Travaglioli. The film, a critics' pet since Cannes, is Italy's entry for the foreign-language Oscar; and this haul lends a handy boost to its campaign across the pond. The one award "Beauty" managed to lose was European Screenwriter of the Year, which went -- rightly, »
