Oscar Watch: From Aniston To Bening To Rowlands Best Actress Dark Horses Make Their Move In “Thin” Field

21 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

While the Oscar race for Best Actor has heated up to a frenzy with, as previously reported here, at least 30 viable candidates and only five slots, most observers have labeled this year’s Best Actress crop from weak to thin with not even enough sure things at this point to make a list of five.

That’s a bit of an overstatement as pundits generally agree there are at least three, possibly four near-certainties for nominations: Julianne Moore for the still-unreleased Still Alice (out Dec. 5), Felicity Jones for The Theory Of Everything and Reese Witherspoon for Wild (also out Dec. 5).

When Gone Girl opened earlier this fall, it not only became by far the biggest awards contenders with a female lead released this year, it stirred up talk of an inevitable nod for Rosamund Pike. In terms of the campaign though, she has been a bit out of sight/out »

16 November 2014 6:57 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

It’s not often that one gets to spend 75 minutes talking about the good, bad and ugly sides of indie filmmaking with eight distinguished filmmakers, but that’s precisely what I had the pleasure of doing last Sunday when I moderated the AFI Fest’s Indie Contenders Roundtable, which was presented by The Hollywood Reporter.

Each of the eight panelists were associated with top-notch 2014 indies: writer-director J.C. Chandor (AFI Fest opener A Most Violent Year); writer-director Damien Chazelle (Sundance grand jury and audience award winner Whiplash); Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard (Belgian Oscar submission Two Days, One Night, as well as 2013 Cannes selection The Immigrant); Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Toronto selections Nightcrawler and, from 2013, Enemy); actor Bill Hader (a best actor Gotham Award nominee for Sundance selection The Skeleton Twins); actress Michelle Monaghan (Fort Bliss); actress Kristen Stewart (Toronto selection Still Alice, as well as »

Sophia Loren Spills the Beans on Co-Stars, Her Career and Fellini at AFI Fest

12 November 2014 10:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sophia Loren had the AFI Fest audience laughing, applauding and cheering as Rob Marshall led her through her decades-long career during a retrospective at the Dolby Theatre on Wednesday.

Marshall called Loren “a woman with a heart as big as all Italy.”

Explaining her start in films, Loren said as a kid she loved going to the movies to escape the misery of her life. “When I saw the movies, I forgot the war, forgot hunger. It was possible to believe there was another life than the one I was in.” Years later, she would dig into those memories when she acted in films including “Two Women.”

While she worked with many of the famous Italian directors of her time, she never teamed with Fellini. “I was not his kind of actress.”

She learned English when her husband, Carlo Ponti, called her from Hollywood to tell her “you have to learn English, »

The 6th Annual Governors Awards took place on Saturday, November 8, 2014 in The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, CA.

Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award recipient Harry Belafonte, Honorary Award recipient Hayao Miyazaki, Honorary Award recipient Jean-Claude Carrière and Honorary Award recipient Maureen O’Hara were honored by their peers during the evening.

The Honorary Award, an Oscar statuette, is given “to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.”

The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, also an Oscar statuette, is given “to an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.”

Belafonte Pushes Hollywood, O’Hara Has ‘Mo’ To Say At Governors Awards

9 November 2014 4:06 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Maureen O’Hara, now 94, took time to fondly remember the Hollywood greats from her past such as John Wayne and John Ford. Legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki said he was just happy to be in the same room as Maureen O’Hara. Masterful screenwriter Jean-Claude Carriere gave a moving tribute to Hollywood’s “forgotten” writers. And Harry Belafonte, winner of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, galvanized  the industry crowd by asking them to aim higher.

Yes, it was quite a night for the four honorees of the Sixth Annual Governors Awards of the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Quite a night. And the Academy got this awards season off to a roaring  start with this blessedly non-televised celebration of the greats in this business who may not have always been given their due. It has also become a night for major schmoozing and networking among Academy voters and the huge numbers of Oscar hopefuls. »

Gay Pride takes a fall

2 November 2014 6:02 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

British critics adored Pride, the comedy-drama based on the true story of the gay Londoners who rallied to support Welsh miners in their confrontation with Margaret Thatcher in 1984, and some were moved to tears.

Audiences in the UK were rather less enthused as the film starring Bill Nighy, Paddy Considine, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton has pocketed a modest $US6.2 million in seven weeks, tracking more like a Made in Dagenham than a Calendar Girls or Billy Elliot.

The reaction seems similar here judging by the Matthew Warchus-directed film.s $522,000 debut on 130 screens, and $595,00 with festival screenings and previews.

Distributor eOne emailed exhibitors this morning asking them to maintain screens in hopes that word-of-mouth will kick in this weekend, particularly among the target audience of mature females.

It was another soft weekend as takings dropped by 9% to $9 million according to Rentrak.s estimates. Year-to-date ticket sales have generated $896 million, »
