Our 2017 Oscar Predictions: Watch the Academy Go Gaga for La La!

15 February 2017 2:24 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The movie-awards season is a mountain range with many peaks — perhaps too many — the inevitable valleys that sag between them and, finally, an Everest that inspires your second wind and an excited sprint: The Academy Awards. Here are my predictions, and my predilections.

The Academy Awards kicks off live on ABC on Sunday, Feb. 26, with a 7 p.m. Et preshow and 8:30 p.m. ceremony.

Best Picture:  La La Land

Fourteen nominations for a chamber musical that pays homage to classics of the genre (including some French ones) is arguably too much of a good thing. It’s as if »

Godzilla 2 Begins Shooting This Summer in Atlanta

13 February 2017 4:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Considering Hollywood's current obsession with sequels and big time franchises, it seemed that Legendary Pictures would want to hit the ground running on Godzilla 2 after the success of their 2014 Godzilla reboot. The development process on a follow-up has been slow, though. The sequel, which is officially titled Godzilla: King of Monsters, is still happening. And it will definitely be out in 2019. Now, we have word that the movie is scheduled to start shooting in just a few shorts months in Atlanta, Georgia.

The news comes courtesy of Omega Underground who are reporting that Godzilla 2 will begin filming on June 19 with director Michael Dougherty at the helm. Gareth Edwards, who most recently directed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for Disney, walked away from directing the sequel last year, so Legendary turned to Michael Dougherty. He recently headed up the writer's room for Legendary's "MonsterVerse" and that apparently went well enough »

But it was Adams who stole the show, dancing wildly with a group of friends in the middle of the dance floor. »

Chris here with a little Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Remember him, the one whose potential nomination for Nocturnal Animals many of us were dreading a few short weeks ago? Well, he's just posed for New York Magazine sans shirt. Depending on your vantage, this means he is either doing just fine or is so forlorn he can't remember his clothing.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Puts Abs on Full Display, Says Oscars Snub Was a 'Relief'

8 February 2017 3:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Golden Globe-winning performance in Nocturnal Animals may have been snubbed by the Academy, but he's not complaining. In fact, the 26-year-old actor reveals in a new interview it was actually a "relief" that he -- and his eight-pack -- failed to garner an Oscar nomination.

"There was relief when my wife told me that I hadn't been nominated," he confesses to New York Magazine while showing off his washboard stomach, though his co-star, Michael Shannon, got a nod for his role in the Tom Ford thriller.

Exclusive: Oscar Nominee Michael Shannon Happy to See ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Recognized

"Quite honestly, and maybe this is because it's the first time I’ve been involved in this process and didn’t know anything, I didn’t have any [resentment towards Shannon's nomination]," Taylor-Johnson continues. "I didn’t feel like, 'Oh, my PR team and his PR team are rivals. Who can get the best press? Who can get »

Why Did Aaron Taylor-Johnson Feel ‘Relief’ When He Wasn’t Nominated For An Oscar?

8 February 2017 11:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Aaron-Taylor Johnson wasn’t sad when he learned he’d been passed over for a Best Supporting Actor nomination for the upcoming, 2017 Academy Awards.

In fact, the Nocturnal Animals star told Vulture, “There was relief when my wife told me that I hadn’t been nominated.”

Taylor-Johnson stars as the villain in the Tom Ford-directed drama and took home the Golden Globe for best performance by an actor in a supporting role in a motion picture for his turn just last month. He bested Oscar favorite Mahershala Ali, who was also nominated in the category.

2017 Oscar Snubs and Headscratchers

8 February 2017 6:19 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Academy Awards may be the most prestigious movie awards out there, but that doesn’t mean they always make the best decisions. Join us as we look at which potential nominees got left out and which nominees don’t belong.  

The nominees for the 2017 Academy Awards were announced on January 16th (see the entire list here), and the ceremony will take place on February 26th. We'll have to wait until then to see who wins, but based on the potential nominees that were left out we Do know who Won't be winning. After having a few weeks to think it over, here are my thoughts on the biggest mistakes that the Academy voters made this year. 

I’ll start by saying that the nominees this year aren’t really that surprising. Despite a few big snubs (discussed below) everything else pretty much fell into place as expected. I don »

Oscars 2017: Why Mahershala Ali Will Beat Jeff Bridges for Supporting Actor

6 February 2017 8:13 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As the Hollywood guilds lay out their winners, a clear frontrunner has emerged in the Supporting Actor category. We dig into the final five contenders, listed in order of likelihood to win the Oscar:

Mahershala Ali popped out at Telluride and Toronto from Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” (A24) ensemble in the beating-heart role of the Cuban-born drug-dealer who nurtures the young boy “Little.” Ali stood out in part because he was better-known than the film’s other actors, enjoying a breakout year as a swath of projects hit screens.

Dauntingly, he shot three of them at the same time. In New York, he was violent New York gangster Cottonmouth on Marvel’s Netflix series “Luke Cage.” In Baltimore, he continued the fourth (and, voluntarily, his last) season of his Emmy-nominated role as Remy Danton, the slick former communications director for Frank Underwood, in “House of Cards.” And in Miami, on three successive weekends, »

When actor Christopher Lloyd describes fellow thespians as “amazing,” you can be pretty sure that they are.

With just a little more than two weeks left before voting closes for the 89th Oscars, Hollywood turned its spotlight 90 miles north to the beachside town of Santa Barbara as stars gathered for the eponymous film festival’s annual Virtuoso Awards — a celebration of, well, celebrity. This year’s program honored a record eight film stars who had breakout performances in films released last year, including five men: Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Simon Helberg (Florence Foster Jenkins), Stephen McKinley (Fences) Dev Patel (Lion) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals).

‘Moonlight,’ ‘Hidden Figures’ Actors Receive Santa Barbara Festival Virtuoso Awards

5 February 2017 12:41 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Conversations about an actor’s life were mixed with observations about Muslims and the Supreme Court as the Santa Barbara International Film Festival saluted eight actors for their breakthrough work in 2016 films.

The first recipient of the fest’s Virtuoso Awards on Saturday was Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight” and “Hidden Figures”). He was asked about his SAG Awards speech about being a Muslim, and about his reaction to having his religion “dragged through the mud” for the past months. “The Muslims I know are peace-loving people,” he said quietly, adding that the actions of a few extremists have been reported so much that many people are getting a distorted view of the religion.

Janelle Monae, who also appears in both those films, said she was deeply moved when she first read Barry Jenkins’ script for the latter, because it depicted characters who are usually marginalized and discriminated against.

Berlin: Sellers Hit the Festival and Market With Mixed Expectations

3 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sellers are heading to Berlin with realistic expectations about the state of the marketplace and the hurdles facing them.

“Consistently delivering great movies has always been the challenge, but you need the rigor required for that even more so now,” says Sierra/Affinity CEO Nick Meyer, who’ll be repping the Wwi-era drama “The Promise,” starring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, in Berlin. “The demand for excellence in filmmaking from independent distributors around the world is higher than ever.”

While Meyer is pragmatic about the global economy (“There are always going to be currency fluctuations and markets that are up and down — that’s the rule,” he says), others see a more ominous landscape.

“The fundamental issue right now is that every single territory in the world has problems that are very challenging, not just for the cinema market, but politically and economically,” says FilmNation Entertainment senior VP of international sales Tara Erer, »

An “Alternate” look at what the Academy Award nominations could have been

31 January 2017 1:48 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Time for something fun. As we wait for ballots to go out to Academy members and final Oscar voting to get underway, why not play around with a hypothetical situation? Now is the time to do it, after all. This is something I’ve done from time to time in the past, which is to look at what the Oscar nominations could have looked like if you remove all of the actual nominees. Weird, I know, but hey, it’s fun. Plus, it’s certainly more apt than ever to do this in our new era of “alternative facts”, right? This isn’t a political post, but I couldn’t resist the dig at Donald Trump and company. Below you will see what these alternate Academy Award nominations could have been. In some categories, it’s easy to speculate, like with Best Picture and how films like 20th Century Women, »

Last night, actor Mahershala Ali won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight.” When he got up to receive the award, he gave an emotional speech that addressed persecution, the differences of texture and his Muslim faith in light of President Trump’s travel ban. Watch the speech below.

“I think what I’ve learned from working on ‘Moonlight’ is we see what happens when we persecute people. They fold into themselves,” said Ali. “And what I was so grateful about in having the opportunity to play Juan was playing a gentleman who saw a young man folding into himself as the result of the persecution of his community, and taking the opportunity to uplift him, and tell him that he mattered, »
