Deemed as his career best, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood leads all nominations for the 24th Gotham Independent Film Awards with winks in the Best Feature, Best Actor (Ethan Hawke), Best Actress (Patricia Arquette) and Breakthrough Actor (Ellar Coltrane) while Birdman, Nightcrawler, Under the Skin and Dear White People technically place second with two noms a piece in the five possible categories. Arguably 2014′s most prolific indie film in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash failed to move the five-critic panels in the Best Film category and sans a Best Supporting category, means Miles Teller receives Best Award nom but J.K. Simmons will just have to wait it out for the Indie Spirit Awards to acknowledge his perf. A special Gotham Jury Award has already been awarded to the ensemble performance of the players of Foxcatcher (Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum) shrewd Vanessa Redgrave perhaps didn’t get enough screen time »

The Independent Filmmaker Project officially fired the starting gun on the film awards season as always this morning with the announcement of this year's Gotham Awards nominees. Unsurprisingly, the most high-profile indie in the race — "Boyhood" — drew the most nominations with a whopping four mentions, including Best Feature. That's extremely high for the Gotham Awards and it sends IFC's campaign sailing into the season with a huge burst of wind. Speaking of revving the campaign engine on an early year release, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" landed in the Best Feature category. Two years ago Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" won that category but still didn't end up with a Best Picture Oscar nomination. Can Fox Searchlight find better luck? And speaking of Searchlight, "Birdman" landed Best Feature and Best Actor nominations. Fully expected. Filling out the Best Feature category was Ira Sachs' beautiful "Love is Strange" and Jonathan Glazer »

And here we go. The 2014 Awards Season has begun, and it begins with Richard Linklater's Boyhood leading with four nominations from the Gotham Awards. Linklater's terrific film picked up nominations for Best Feature, Ethan Hawke (Best Actor), Patricia Arquette (Best Actress), and Ellar Coltrane (Breakthrough Performance). Also of note was Oscar Isaac receiving a Best Actor nomination for A Most Violent Year even though it has yet to be screened for the public (it will debut at AFI Fest next month). Finally, I'm very amused that rather than choose between nominating Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo for Foxcatcher, they received a Special Jury Award jointly for their performances. That's one way to do it. It's also worth noting that the Gotham Awards mean next to nothing in the overall awards race. They have the distinction of being the starting gun, but I'm glad they're continuing to honor worthwhile movies. »

The Gotham Awards juried nominations have recently surplanted the ancient Nbr as the first real awards nomination/wins of the film year. That it happens in October is more than a little crazy, but what'cha gonna do? The New York centric film prizes, think of it as the Spirit Awards's East Coast Cousin albeit with far fewer prizes will be held on December 1st. Since they only have six categories and four separate juries (composed of critics and programmers), multiple nods aren't as easy to come by as they are at other shows but a handful of films managed it: Boyhood, Birdman, Dear White People, Nightcrawler, and Under the Skin.
Very happy to see the intensely moving Love is Strange, in constant danger of being undervalued, show up. Especially since it didn't show up anywhere else. 199 films were eligible for these honors. »

It's no real surprise to see Boyhood topping the this morning's Gotham Independent Film Awards nominations with four. The film is likely to lead the Spirit Award nominations as well. It will be the year's most highly touted independent feature, make several top ten lists and probably earn plenty of Oscar nominations if not a few wins. It's also no surprise to see Birdman get a couple noms. In fact, the only nomination I find particularly interesting here is the nomination for Oscar Isaac for his role in J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year. Primarily because critics have yet to see it and because the nomination committee clearly enjoyed Nightcrawler, but saw fit to nominate Isaac for A Most Violent Year, but not Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler. It's also a little disappointing to see Tom Hardy might end up being ignored even for independent awards for his performance in Locke, »

And the Oscar season is off and running! Nominees for the 24th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards have been unleased and Richard Linklater's fantastic "Boyhood" led the pack with four nods including Best Feature, Best Actor for Ethan Hawke, Best Actress for Patricia Arquette, and Breakthrough Actor for Ellar Coltrane.
We'll find out the winners of the 2014 Gotham Awards on December 1st! Here's the complete list of nominees:
Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
The Grand Budapest Hotel
It's the middle of October, and you know what that means: announcements of nominations for year-end awards. In the same way that movie summer now starts in February, more and more organizations shift up their ceremonies in order to make a bigger impact, and the latest of these is the Gotham Awards, which just revealed their nods for this year. Leaning indie-minded on the whole, this year's noms are led by a genuine Oscar hopeful, Richard Linklater's "Boyhood," which picked up four nominations. "Nightcrawler," "Under The Skin," "Dear White People," and "Birdman" each picked up two nods, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Love Is Strange" are among the Best Feature nominees, and "Foxcatcher" has been awarded a special jury prize for its three lead performances, deservedly so. Perhaps most interestingly, though the film doesn't screen for critics until it premieres at AFI in a few weeks, Oscar Isaac picked. »

Richard Linklater's Boyhood was nominated for four Gotham Independent Film Awards, including a nod for Best Feature. Also competing for best picture are Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Love Is Strange, and Under the Skin. While the Gothams celebrate only independent film, they are one of the first notable—if not the most reliable predictor—year-end movie awards. Last year, the Gothams rewarded Inside Llewyn Davis and Short Term 12's Brie Larson, in addition to Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyer's Club. Boyhood was also recognized for Ethan Hawke in the Best Actor category, Patricia Arquette in Best Actress, »

The Independent Filmmaker Project (Ifp) announced Thursday morning the nominees for the 24th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards. Highlighting the best of the year’s independent film, the Gotham Awards give an early bump to the smaller films that could get lost in the studio shuffle. For 2014, the seven competitive awards include Best Feature, Best Documentary, Best Actor, Best Actress (presenting sponsor euphoria Calvin Klein), Breakthrough Actor, the Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director award, and the Gotham Audience Award. In addition to the competitive awards, Tilda Swinton, director Bennett Miller, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos will be honored with tributes. 24 films received nominations this year, not including a special award handed bestowed to Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum for their ensemble work in “Foxcatcher.” Voting for the primary awards begins on Nov. 19th at 12:01 Am Est and concludes on November 26th at 5:00 Pm Est. “Each year the Gotham »

Richard Linklater’s drama “Boyhood,” 12 years in the making, led the nominations list with four, including acting nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Ellar Coltrane. “Birdman,” Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s story of a has-been actor trying to make his comeback on Broadway, snagged an additional nom for lead actor Michael Keaton.
Jonathan Glazer’s scifi feature “Under the Skin” also did well, nabbing a thesping nom for lead Scarlett Johansson. Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”), Bill Hader (“The Skeleton Twins”) and Miles Teller (“Whiplash”) also are among the actors in the running for trophies.
Every year the Gotham nominators also recognize the breakthrough talent of emerging creatives, this year with a pool of nominees that include directors Justin Simien »

Thanks to fan site Making Star Wars, we’ve got a pair of new set photos from Star Wars: Episode VII, which – if you squint and look very, very closely – just about shows the white blur of an Imperial Stormtrooper. Take a look at the images, followed by a scene description below…
Some images are from the lot where they seem to be dumping a lot of trees, vines and rocks which I believe must be props, the other 4 are from the area around the blue screens, the castle/megaliths/ruins…and a Stormtrooper, well, just about.
Unfortunately they’re not quite as vivid as we’d have liked, but with a bit of zooming you should definitely be able to make out the Stormtrooper. There were 4 I think in this area, running through the explosions, I think I remember another 4 or so coming from the opposite direction, but that was not all… »

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve seen Oscar contenders premiere at Sundance, Cannes, Berlin, Telluride, Toronto and New York, but as we approach the end of October, some films have yet to make their debut. Here are ten films that have been garnering Oscar buzz that will be debuting through December (in alphabetical order):
A Most Violent Year; Nov. 6
Jc Chandor ‘s third feature film will be opening AFI Fest. It reunites two Juilliard alumni, Oscar Isaac and two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain, as a couple living and working in New York City during one of its most violent years. This will be the main Oscar focus of upstart, indie distributor A24.
American Sniper; Dec. 25

Three spots in the 2015 Oscars Best Actor race are pretty much locked up. Those would be Michael Keaton (Birdman), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) and Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything). In my opinion, that's also the order of their likelihood of winning... right now. The two other slots aren't so easy to figure with so much left to be seen. Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) seems a strong contender though I'm not as sure about his chances as much as some others are, largely because of the competition he faces. His chances remain high, though, which is why he occupies my #4 slot for now. In fifth I had Jack O'Connell (Unbroken), but there's a little movie on the rise right now you may have heard of and hopefully seen (or intend to see) called Whiplash and not only is the film securing itself a spot in the Best Picture ranks, but »

Doctor Strange: With Joaquin Phoenix apparently out of the mix, Marvel is still searching for the right actor to star as Doctor Strange. Reportedly, Colin Farrell (above in Saving Mr. Banks) is the latest possibility, joining Benedict Cumberbatch, along with the recently touted Keanu Reeves, as the leading candidates for the role. Supposedly, others being considered include Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Justin Theroux and Oscar Isaac. The movie is scheduled for release in 2016. [The Wrap] X-Men: Apocalypse: Tom Hardy (in The Drop, above), who played the villainous Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, is now being "courted" to star as a villainous, extremely powerful mutant named En Sabah Nur in Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. The character was featured...

(Cbr) Yet another name has been conjured to potentially lead Marvel Studio’s "Doctor Strange" to the big screen. The Wrap reported Friday that Colin Farrell is now a frontrunner for the Sorcerer Supreme role, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Keanu Reeves. The report comes on the heels of this week’s rumor that Ewan McGregor may also be up for the Strange role. This is the first time Farrell — who will soon begin shooting the second season of "True Detective" — has been mentioned as a possible lead for the film. Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke are also apparently interested as well. However, The Wrap’s "Doctor Strange" casting roundup initially also still named Joaquin Phoenix as a frontrunner, despite talks breaking down between Phoenix and Marvel earlier this month. The same report also mentions that aside from once being in contention for Doctor Strange, Tom Hardy »

Let's start with a broad assessment that may or may not be true, but can be taken as close enough for the purposes of this column: there are four Best Actor slots spoken for. What are they? Steve Carell in "Foxcatcher," Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game," Michael Keaton in "Birdman" and Eddie Redmayne in "The Theory of Everything." Only one of those films, mind you, has opened and screened for the Academy ("Birdman"). But if I were a betting man, I'd say that quartet is secure. So who slides in besides? First and foremost, we've been in this place at least since the Toronto Film Festival, when Cumberbatch further solidified himself after "The Imitation Game" debuted at Telluride and Redmayne jumped onto the scene as part of a new wave of contenders that included "Nightcrawler's" Jake Gyllenhaal and "St. Vincent's" Bill Murray. But as one of the »

Meanwhile Joaquin Phoenix's representative has scotched rumours he will play the neurosurgeon-turned-superhero saying, "talks are dead, dead, dead. A couple of weeks ago they mutually decided to part ways. It was over before the New York Film Festival."
He had previously been in talks before dropping out, but was said to be reconsidering.
A source told The Wrap that Farrell is being considered for the role, and confirmed the news that Reeves is also in the running.
The studio has apparently wanted to work with Benedict Cumberbatch for a while, especially following his appearances in Star Trek Into Darkness, The Imitation Game and 12 Years A Slave. But commitments to Sherlock »
