Soundtracking: Best of 2014

15 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

As the year winds to a close, Soundtracking looks back at the ten best moments, songs and trends that made 2014 a great year for music on screen.

 

10. Guardians of the Galaxy

It’s the only way to kick off this list. If the 21st Century truly believed in cassettes, most copies of this soundtrack would be worn out by now. The first ever back catalogue-only soundtrack to hit Number One on the Billboard charts, Awesome Mix Vol. 1 was a masterpiece in Am Radio curation. But you already knew that. Cue the Star-Lord strut:

 

 

9. The F Word

Michael Dowse’s rom-com wins the Canadiana Award for 2014 thanks in large part to an original score by New Pornographers founder A.C. Newman and a dappling of Patrick Watson throughout the film. Ironically, the most memorable track from the film comes courtesy of southern duo The Parting Gifts.

Surprise ‘Pride’ Marches Into Golden Globes Race

11 December 2014 8:40 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Golden Globes nomination for “Pride” is similar to the tale it depicts: unlikely but true.

It was barely on the radar for many awards pundits. But audiences have loved it since it debuted at Cannes and played at the Toronto Film Festival.

Pride” tells the true story of Britain’s 1984-85 strike by the National Union of Mineworkers. The miners’ families were hurting, so an organization was formed to help, Lesbians & Gays Support the Miners. The new group felt a kinship with the miners, since both were feeling oppressed by the Margaret Thatcher government, the police and the tabloid press.

Variety‘s Charles Gant hailed the film as an “irresistible crowd-pleaser.”

CBS Films president Terry Press told Variety on Thursday, “We’re really proud of the movie. It’s important to us that people see it. It was one of the surprises at Toronto; audiences really loved it. And so did they HFPA. »

That doesn't really happen in British cinemas. It's just extraordinary. It's a real tribute to the source material.

British Independent Film Awards: ‘Pride,’ ‘Calvary,’ ‘’71’ Steal Night From ‘Imitation Game’ & ‘Mr. Turner’

7 December 2014 2:55 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

But if the two titles had their pride bruised, their future awards hopes are still intact: the BIFAs generally favour underdogs and tonight’s slip-up, while annoying for their backers, shouldn’t derail either film's BAFTA chances. On the other hand, the makers of “Pride,” “Calvary” and ‘’71” will be delighted with their Bifa showings. Brendan Gleeson trumped his Best Actors rivals with a win for “Calvary,” beating out Benedict Cumberbatch for “The Imitation Game,” Timothy Spall for “Mr. Turner,” Jack O’Connell for “’71” and Asa Butterfield for “X+Y.” Spall and Cumberbatch shouldn’t feel too down-hearted though: the BIFAs have a history of not going for the obvious in actor categories. Best Director went to debut filmmaker Yann Demange for his immersive Northern Irish thriller “’71,” beating Mike Leigh for “Mr. Turner” and Matthew Warchus for “Pride” (Morten Tyldum wasn’t nominated for “The Imitation Game”).

British Independent Film Awards go to 'Pride,' Brendan Gleeson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw

7 December 2014 2:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yann Demange's "'71" had a strong showing in the nominations stage for the 2014 British Independent Film Awards, but it was Matthew Warchus' "Pride" walking away with top honors, including Best Film, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress. However, my favorite win of the evening has to be Brendan Gleeson's for the underrated "Calvary." Gugu Mbatha-Raw ("Belle") rounded out the acting honors. Nothing for "The Imitation Game" or "Selma," but as our old friend Guy Lodge noted on Twitter, I'm sure they'll do fine elsewhere this season. Check out the full list of winners below, and remember to keep track of the season at The Circuit. Best Film "Pride" Best Actor Brendan Gleeson, "Calvary" Best Director Yann Demange, "'71" Best Actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, "Belle" Best Supporting Actor Andrew Scott, "Pride" Best Supporting Actress Imelda Staunton, "Pride" Best Screenplay "Frank" Best Achievement in Production "The Goob" Best Documentary »

‘Pride’, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Brendan Gleeson Scoop British Independent Film Awards

7 December 2014 12:01 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Writethru, 3 Pm Pt: Period culture clash comedy Pride was the big winner at the British Independent Film Awards which took place at London’s Old Billingsgate this evening. Pathé’s Matthew Warchus-directed ensemble took three prizes including Best Film, Best Supporting Actress for Imelda Staunton and Best Supporting Actor for new Bond cast member Andrew Scott. Brendan Gleeson was named Best Actor for John Michael McDonagh’s Calvary and Gugu Mbatha-Raw was Best Actress for drama Belle. Best Director was Yann Demange whose ’71 was the most nominated film going into the evening. (See below for the full list of winners.) The BIFAs, as their name suggests, have a decidedly indie bent and are an important date on the British awards season calendar in that they tend to honor UK films that might not get as much recognition at, say, the BAFTAs.

Matthew Warchus’ ‘Pride’ Wins Top Prize at British Independent Film Awards

7 December 2014 11:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Gay rights drama “Pride” won the award for British independent film, beating “’71,” “Calvary,” “Mr Turner” and “The Imitation Game,” at the 17th Moet British Independent Film Awards Sunday at Old Billingsgate in London.

The award for director went to Yann Demange for Northern Ireland-set thriller “’71,” outflanking John Michael McDonagh for “Calvary,” Lenny Abrahamson for “Frank,” Matthew Warchus for “Pride” and Mike Leigh for “Mr Turner.”

The victor in the actor category was Brendan Gleeson for “Calvary,” about a tough-minded Irish priest marked for death by one of his parishioners. He was competing with Asa Butterfield for “X+Y,” Benedict Cumberbatch for “The Imitation Game,” Jack O’Connell for “’71” and Timothy Spall for “Mr Turner.”

Gleeson paid tribute to the producers “who have to try to make independent film when it is almost impossible for people to risk commercially what is required artistically.”

Cumberbatch was the recipient of the Variety Award, »

'Matilda' Recoups on Broadway

5 December 2014 8:46 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's taken more than a year and a half, but Matilda, the inventive musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's modern-classic children's novel, is officially a profitable hit on Broadway. Producers the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Dodgers confirmed on Friday that the show has paid back its $16 million investment, placing it in the elite circle of big-budget musicals to turn a profit both in London and on Broadway. Directed by Matthew Warchus, Matilda has a Tony-winning book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Australian comedian and composer Tim Minchin. The show is based on Dahl’s 1988

Yann Demange's ''71' leads 2014 British Independent Film Awards nominations

2 December 2014 8:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack O'Connell is breaking out something fierce this year. He's of course starring in Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" and on the indie scene in "Starred Up," for which he was nominated last year at the British Independent Film Awards. Well, he's back for more of this this time around with "'71," Yann Demange's brilliant Belfast thriller, which scored the lion's share of nominations today with nine. Matthew Warchus' ensemble dramedy "Pride," about gay activists working to help miners during the 1984 UK mineworkers strike, was a few steps behind with seven mentions. Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner" rounded up five nods, while "Calvary" and "The Imitation Game" picked up four apiece. The international category was mostly populated with American entries: "The Babadook," "Blue Ruin," "Boyhood" and "Fruitvale Station." Though Poland's "Ida" also made a show.

Demange Control: ’71 Leads 2014 British Independent Film Awards Noms

3 November 2014 10:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The edge-of-your seat thriller that was all the talk at this year’s Berlin Film Festival (that momentum was carried over into Telluride and Tiff during the fall) leads all noms for the 17th edition of the 2014 British Independent Film Awards. Landing nine nominations in all, Yann Demange’s ’71 might lead the pack, but I’d argue that despite all the fanfare, remains an underdog in most categories. Going up against The Imitation Game (which failed to score ‎Morten Tyldum a Best Director nod but managed to get Best Screenplay and Best Film consideration) and Mike Leigh’s Mr Turner, there might be plenty of gift-giving for several films on December 7th, with Matthew WarchusPride also in the mix with a whopping seven noms (mostly in the acting categories). The much deserving Cannes played Catch Me Daddy and Venice Film Fest included The Goob thankfully didn’t go unnoticed, »

''71,' 'Pride,' 'The Imitation Game' Nab British Indie Film Award Nominations

3 November 2014 9:43 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The British Independent Film Awards announced its nominees this Monday morning and it was good news for films that may not have the muscle to break into the Academy Awards contest. The Irish political thriller “’71” and “Pride,” the story of gay activism and mineworker strikes that fits snuggly the time-honored British sociopolitical dramedy genre, earned the most nominations. In honors that will likely replicate themselves stateside, “Imitation Game” also earned a Best British Independent Film nod, with stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley finding love in the Best Actor and Actress categories, respectively. Other Best British Independent Film nominees include Mike Leigh’s “Mr. Turner” and John Michael McDonagh’s “Calvary.” Picking up multiple nominations were Lenny Abrahamson’s “Frank,” documentarian Morgan Matthews’ narrative debut “X+Y,” and the Nick Cave documentary “20,000 Days on Earth.” There’s little conformity to the British Independent Film Awards. Compared to previous years, the 2014 nominations are downright populist. »
