Penultimate Oscar predictions before the nominations are announced

8 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s not far off. In less than a week now, the Academy Award nominations will be announced. Voting has come to an end, so the results basically have been tabulated. It’s just a waiting game at this point. Like an expectant parent, you’ll find me pacing around, a concerned look on my face. What will the Academy do? Will La La Land tied the record for most nominations by a single film? Will any other movie come close to matching that one’s total? Those questions and more are what I’m attempting to pin down. You’ll see what I’m predicting below, but just remember…these aren’t my final picks just yet. I know it’s only been a few days since the last update, but that’s the nature of the beast in this final week. What you’ll see below is a »

If You Have to Visit Black Rock, This New Blu Is the Way to Go

Warner Archive Delivers the Best Way to Enjoy a Bad Day at Black Rock

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the WeekBad Day at Black Rock [Warner Archive]

What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.

Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and »

15 January 2017 7:17 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

After a long and much-needed break, Saturday Night Live returned this week for its first episode of 2017.

Stranger Things Star Matthew Modine Joins Sicario Sequel Soldado

14 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in 2015, director Denis Villeneuve exploded onto the scene with drug thriller Sicario, a smart, intense and overall impressive piece of filmmaking that left just about everyone pleased. That being said, it didn’t exactly call for a sequel, and with both Villeneuve and star Emily Blunt choosing to move on, it was hard to muster up too much excitement when one was originally announced.

Thankfully, then, things have been coming together rather well for the follow-up, which is titled Soldado. Taylor Sheridan is back again on scripting duties, and in the director’s chair is Stefano Sollima. In front of the camera, meanwhile, are returning stars Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin. Now, we’re hearing about an exciting new addition to the cast, as Stranger Things star Matthew Modine has signed on to play Defense Director James Ridley “opposite Catherine Keener, who plays his Deputy Director.”

Speaking about his plans for the sequel, »

On the heels of “The Crown’s” win at the Golden Globes, the world’s fascination with the British royal family continues unabated. PBS enters the fray with “Victoria,” the tale of the original long-reigning queen who is the great, great grandmother of the Queen Elizabeth we know now.

Starring “Doctor Who” alum Jenna Coleman, “Victoria” traces the monarch’s time from the age of accession at 18 through her long and tumultuous reign that included her passionate marriage to Prince Albert, increased expansion of the British Empire, and becoming a national icon.

12 January 2017 2:53 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Girl on the Train was the hot adaptation of 2016, and if you haven't had a chance to see it yet, it comes out on Blu-ray and DVD Jan. 17. And if you really haven't seen it yet, I won't spoil the ending, but I will spoil the fact that Justin Theroux is hot as hell in it as Emily Blunt's ex. For those of you who have seen the movie, we have an exclusive extended scene you've never seen before - and you will really, really want to. In it, Theroux's character plays house with his new wife and takes a bath with their baby, looking like the cutest doting dad, while Blunt lurks outside.

11 January 2017 6:29 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The My Little Pony movie just scored another big-name talent, with news coming today that Guardians Of The Galaxy and Star Trek star Zoe Saldana has signed on for a voice role in the October 6, 2017 film. Saldana—whose next big project is Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, out in May—joins a cast that includes Kristin Chenoweth, Emily Blunt, Taye Diggs, Liev Schreiber, Sia, Uzo Aduba, and Michael Peña, plus the original cast from the massively successful My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

Hasbro also released a logo for the new movie, featuring the first glimpses of the film versions of the show’s “Mane 6” for fans (including, presumably, Billy Bob Thornton) to fall in love with, to a more-or-less literal degree.

How BAFTA, the Producers Guild, and Other Groups May Rewrite the 2017 Oscar Odds

10 January 2017 12:04 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While the Golden Globes build momentum for their winners, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association can be whimsical. The latest collection of nominations, however, are a more solemn bunch. And while the HFPA has zero overlap with Oscar voters, there’s a few hundred Academy members who also hold membership in British counterpart BAFTA, and even more with the Producers Guild, the Cinema Audio Society, and the Visual Effects Society .

So what did we learn from Tuesday’s nods?

Well, “La La Land” is still on track to garner more Oscar nominations than any other film. It has one rival in scale and scope: “Arrival.” The sci-fi drama also got support from BAFTA with nine nominations through the categories, including director Denis Villeneuve and actress Amy Adams. “Manchester By the Sea” landed six and “Moonlight,” four, not including a Director nomination.

Arrival and La La Land lead the 2017 BAFTA nominations

Arrival and La La Land lead the 2017 BAFTA nominationsArrival and La La Land lead the 2017 BAFTA nominationsAdriana Floridia1/10/2017 11:22:00 Am

The BAFTAs are the British equivalent of the Oscars, and although the awards are given overseas, they still factor into the American awards race.

Yet again, we see the same three films having a strong presence here: La La Land, Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight. However, BAFTA is also spreading the love to other awards favourites like Arrival, Nocturnal Animals, and Lion.

Some interesting omissions here include Denzel Washington for Fences. His co-star Viola Davis is nominated in the supporting category, but it looks as though BAFTA went for other potential Oscar contenders Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge and Viggo Mortensen for Captain Fantastic. They're also the first major awards body to nominate Jake Gyllenhaal's leading performance in Nocturnal Animals.
