“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on RottenTomatoes.com), audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

Lisa Marie Presley Claims Her 8-Year-Old Twins Are in Protective Custody

17 February 2017 8:23 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lisa Marie Presley says her twins are in protective custody after "disturbing" photos of children were discovered on a computer belonging to her estranged husband, Michael Lockwood, Presley claims in court documents obtained by Et.

The Daily Mail first broke the news of Presley's claim that her twin daughters, 8-year-old Finley and Harper, were taken into protective custody by California's Department of Children and Family Services after she alleged that she found "hundreds of inappropriate photos" and disturbing video footage on Lockwood's computer.

Elvis Presley's only daughter said she was "shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach" upon making the alleged discovery in court documents filed on Feb. 7 in Los Angeles, as part of the couple's ongoing divorce. Presley is asking the court to thus deny Lockwood's request for spousal support and attorney's fees. Lockwood requested »

Josh Hutcherson’s Directorial Debut ‘Ape’ Premieres From New Millennial Filmmaking Initiative The Big Script

17 February 2017 9:53 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ape,” a psychological thriller directed by Josh Hutcherson (“The Hunger Games,” “The Kids Are Alright”), debuted today on the Conde Nast-owned digital platform The Scene. The fifteen-minute film stars Hutcherson as a schizophrenic teen battling hallucinations, with a script by Jon Johnstone.

The film is part of a new emerging filmmakers initiative from Conde Nast Entertainment, Indigenous Media, and Josh and Michelle Hutcherson’s Turkeyfoot Productions, called The Big Script. Citing an increase in major studio tent pole films, The Big Script aims to find and produce “independently created content that can thrive on digital/emerging platforms” and is “driven by unique voices.”

“On the one hand they are extremely close to me, and on the other hand they have nothing to do with me,” the actress Isabelle Huppert says of the many characters that she’s played, as we sit down at the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The Frenchwoman — an Oscar nominee for the first time, at the age of 63, for her portrayal of a rape survivor in Paul Verhoeven‘s 2016 French-language drama Elle — continues, “I have nothing to do with this woman from Elle who runs a video game company — I don’t even know myself how to work my computer — so I’m completely far from the character. I’m not a philosophy teacher [as in Things to Come, her other 2016 film], I never killed my father or my mother [as in 1978’s Violette], so I have »

Riley Keough Opens Up About Former Stepfather Michael Jackson: 'I Loved Him'

16 February 2017 1:57 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Riley Keough has nothing but good memories of the late Michael Jackson.

The 27-year-old actress talks about her personal connection to the King of Pop in a new interview with T Magazine, after her mother, 49-year-old Lisa Marie Presley, married Jackson in May 1994. Presley and Jackson split in 1996, after two years of marriage.

"I loved him," Keough says.

The American Honey star also recalls spending time at Jackson's infamous Neverland Ranch in Los Olivos, California.

"There were toys everywhere, animals everywhere, kids everywhere," she says. "It was like being at Disneyland all day."

Clearly, Keough -- who also spent a great deal of time at her grandfather Elvis Presley's iconic estate, Graceland, in Memphis, Tennessee -- had a pretty unconventional childhood.

"Looking back on it, I'm like, 'Wow, my upbringing was very intense,'" she acknowledges »

Exclusive: An Oral History of 'Xx,' the Horror Anthology With a Killer Feminist Agenda

16 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If the saying "no guts, no glory" holds true, then there's a serious discrepancy happening in the world of horror. Though women -- your scream queens, your final girls -- have so often offered up their guts to genre films, men are still predominately pulling the strings behind the scenes. That's not the case with Xx, a horror anthology featuring four killer tales by four female directors: Annie Clark (aka rocker St. Vincent, making her directorial debut), Jovanka Vuckovic, Karyn Kusama and Roxanne Benjamin. The story of how Xx came to be -- and how it hopes to upend the horror industry -- is best told by the women behind it.

Magnet Releasing

A director and student of horror maestro Guillermo del Toro, Vuckovic conceived Xx after noticing that despite the horror anthology's extensive history, female creatives have been virtually absent. She partnered with producer Todd Brown of Xyz Films to change that.

Berlin Review: ‘Return to Montauk’ is a Perceptive Reflection on the Past

15 February 2017 9:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“No one gets over anything,” remarks Stellan Skarsgård’s Max, rekindling with old flame Rebecca years after they last met. He was a fledgling writer, she an idealistic young student. But then they split up, he moved back to Europe and she became a hotshot lawyer in New York City. And neither ‘got over’ it. Now Max reflects in the words of his new novel: life is defined by what you did that you regret, and what you did not do that you regret; “The things that come between do not matter.” Seeing each other again, they travel to Montauk, the village at the end of Long Island, to look out to the open ocean and search for what they’ve lost. But all they can do is look back.

Volker Schlöndorff’s latest film has something of the Allen-esque themes of regret and unchangeable fate (the New York setting »

‘Certain Women’ Breakout Lily Gladstone to Star in Wgn America’s DC Comics Pilot ‘Scalped’ (Exclusive)

13 February 2017 1:43 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wgn America’s DC Comics pilot “Scalped” is heating up.

Casting has officially begun on the project that was ordered to pilot nearly a year ago — Lily Gladstone has landed the first series regular role, Variety has learned exclusively.

Based on the western crime comics that were published by DC’s Vertigo imprint in 2007, “Scalped” is described as a modern-day crime story set in the world of a Native American reservation. The project explores power, loyalty, and spirituality in a community led by the ambitious Chief Lincoln Red Crow as he reckons with Dashiell Bad Horse, who has returned home after years away from the reservation.

Gladstone will play Carol Red Crow, the estranged daughter of Chief Red Crow. The former “Rez Princess,” tragic circumstances set her against her father and down a self-destructive spiral meant to punish him as much as herself. Fiercely independent and intelligent, Carol gradually comes to discover the influence she can play »

Kristen Stewart Behind the Scenes for ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ (See)

13 February 2017 9:44 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Kristen Stewart says appearing in “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” provided a rare opportunity to work with director Ang Lee, who is noted for such films as 2012’s “The Life of Pi” and “Brokeback Mountain,” for which he won a Best Director Oscar. In fact, Stewart says she jumped at the part even though she has only three scenes in the wartime drama about a veteran’s return to his hometown. Stewart co-stars with lead actor Joe Alwyn, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, Steve Martin and Chris Tucker. ...Read More »

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk review

13 February 2017 8:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ang Lee's latest film is an unconventional film being distributed, on the whole, in a very conventional way...

In the race to set forth the future of cinema through various technological advances, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk feels like a major casualty. Once tipped for the Oscar race, the latest film from Ang Lee has bombed at the worldwide box office and been all but ignored by critics and awards bodies. This is partly due to complications in exhibiting the film in its intended format, because cinemas haven't adapted for this war drama as they did for major blockbusters of recent years.

Avatar successfully made the case for 3D, like the gift of fire from James Cameron to studio arsonists who post-converted every tentpole movie in sight, while Peter Jackson's Hobbit films were less successful in pioneering higher frame rates, inadvertently exposing the actors' make-up and making the audience dizzy. »

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk review – not the greatest framing device

12 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ang Lee’s novel attempt at capturing Ptsd mars this version of Ben Fountain’s novel about a young soldier with divided loyalties

To capture the heightened experience of soldiers frazzled by Ptsd, Ang Lee decided to film this adaptation of the novel by Ben Fountain using the unprecedented high frame rate of 120 frames per second. It’s an interesting idea, but one that, rather than immersing us in the world of the returning heroes forced into the public eye, takes us out of their reality. The image is distractingly crisp, the high-definition acuity is flat-out ugly at times. It’s a pity, because the story, about a young soldier who is torn between leaving the army and loyalty to his brothers at arms, is affecting and well acted by newcomer Joe Alwyn as Billy and Kristen Stewart as his sister.

Lily Gladstone: ‘I lived in the reservations until I was 11’

The Native American actor and breakout star of Certain Women on stereotyped casting, her famous forebears and horseback riding with Kristen Stewart

What is interesting about what has been described as newcomer Lily Gladstone’s “big break” is that, in one sense, it is not big at all. This is the quietest film sensation imaginable – a role with minimal dialogue but major impact. Gladstone appears in Certain Women, written and directed by Kelly Reichardt, alongside box-office names Michelle Williams, Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart. Last October it won the best film award at the London film festival and Gladstone’s performance has been singled out. Rolling Stone’s critic, after dutifully saluting the stars (all three are excellent), writes: “Gladstone gives a performance of such piercing honesty and yearning, you almost can’t look at her.” The film, based on short stories by Maile Meloy, involves real women leading ordinarily complicated lives. »

“I could not have had a happier place to go when I wasn’t in the midst of the tsunami — the wonderful tsunami — that was Hamilton,” says the actor/playwright/composer/songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda of writing seven original songs for the Disney animated film Moana while simultaneously appearing in the biggest Broadway phenomenon in history. Hamilton, which Miranda created and starred in through last July, won 11 Tony Awards, two of which went to him personally, as did a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ and a Grammy Award. For Moana, meanwhile, he is nominated for the best original song Oscar, for his song “How Far I’ll Go” — and if he wins, he will become only the 13th — and, at just 36, the youngest — Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner) in history.

“It was an experience of collaboration like I’d never had before,” says the actress Emma Stone of the making of La La Land as we sit down at Santa Barbara’s Biltmore Hotel to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The 28-year-old won the best actress SAG Award and is nominated for the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Mia, a struggling young actress in love with Ryan Gosling‘s struggling young musician Sebastian, in Damien Chazelle‘s original musical — one of a record-tying 14 nominations bestowed upon it by the Academy — which hits home for her as much as anyone. “I do understand a lot of what Mia’s going through,” she says, noting that reading Chazelle’s script for the first time both “lifted me up and broke my heart. »

Kristen Stewart hit up the fashion scene on Wednesday night, and seemed to have her eye on one model in particular.

The 26-year-old actress -- who's also done some print modeling of her own for a few high-brow brands -- showed up to the TommyLand Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2017 Fashion Show in Venice, California, and her rumored girlfriend, Stella Maxwell, just so happened to be walking in the show.
