Who Would You Vote For as "Best Young Actor/Actress"?

7 December 2014 2:25 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Each year when my Bfca ballot arrives I stop in my tracks, stumped, when I get to "Young Performer". Categories that aren't Oscar correlative are often trickier.

Oh dear. How uneasy I feel..."

That's not because you're free of predicting (anyone trying to predict with their own ballot really ought to find a new profession -- criticism: ur not doing it right) but because it's a subsection of acting you probably haven't been discussing at all. You suddenly remember that you need to have been considering it with as much seriousness as you have made your other selections.

I imagine that Ellar Coltrane, the now 20 year old star of Boyhood, will be tough to beat since this category is for the 21 and under set. But even if the category were adjusted downward to 17 and younger (which we strongly support as a rule change -because it's always weird when an adult »

Birdman Triumphs At 2014 Gotham Awards

2 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we head into December, awards season is well under way, and though we’ll have to wait until the spring for really big fish like the Oscars and the Golden Globes, this month has a respectable number of ceremonies of its own. Last night, celebrities gathered at Cipriani Wall Street in New York for the 2014 Gotham Independent Film Awards.

It was a long, casual ceremony for those in attendance, but when the night finally wrapped up, few could argue with the results. Birdman spread its wings and took home Best Feature, while Michael Keaton nabbed Best Actor for his revelatory role in the Alejandro G. Iñárritu-directed film. Meanwhile, Julianne Moore continued her unstoppable march to the Oscars, receiving Best Actress for her devastating work as an Alzheimer’s-afflicted linguistics professor in Still Alice. And Laura Poitras was awarded Best Documentary Feature for her eye-opening Edward Snowden doc Citizenfour.

From the Gotham Awards floor: Overheard and witnessed at the Oscar season kickoff

2 December 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Aimlessly wandering around Cipriani Wall Street, the lavish home of New York City’s Gotham Awards, I wondered if anyone knew the awards season was in full swing. That morning, a critics group handed out the first batch of accolades. Present company would soon receive statues swaying the race towards buzzed about thespian thoroughbreds. It was "on."  Yet, this crowd didn’t have that awareness. This was way too chill. I was the only one wondering if "Under the Skin" could upset "Birdman," weighing options in anticipation of the question mark-filled Breakthrough Actor category. Somehow, a run-in with "Boyhood" star Ellar Coltrane ended with us wondering out loud, "What does it all mean?" in the existential sense.  So this is why everyone was downing bellinis. The Gotham Awards owns its quiet-before-the-storm identity. The show isn’t the Golden Globes drunken circus, nor is it top tier enough to warrant an intense competitive edge. »

1 December 2014 8:38 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Boyhood topped the Gotham Independent Film Awards nominations with four, but it was Birdman that took home the most awards with two, including Best Feature and Best Actor for Michael Keaton, which just so happen to be the only awards the film was nominated for. Winning for Best Actress was the presumed Oscar front-runner Julianne Moore for Still Alice, Best Documentary went to presumed Oscar front-runner Citizenfour and Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) took home Breakthrough Director and it was Tessa Thompson (Dear White People) taking home Breakthrough Actor for a film I really need to make sure I see. I have listed all the winners below and if you haven't checked it out yet, I did a little updating to my Oscar predictions in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories within the last 24 hours... give them a peek right here.

Stockholm Film Festival: The Franco and the Faulkner

13 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn has been attending the 25th Stockholm Film Festival as a member of the Fipresci jury. Today he looks at James Franco's latest creative endeavour, 'The Sound and the Fury'.

James Franco’s latest isn’t a part of the films I was sent to Sweden to judge, but in my apparent need to one day become the pre-eminent expert on the 36-year-old’s career, I decided to find time for The Sound and the Fury. His second Faulkner adaptation after last year’s As I Lay Dying shows that Franco is improving as a director when it comes to the creation of coherent and engaging cinematic worlds, but while somebody like the equally fast-moving Xavier Dolan is able to take his inspirations and weave them throughout his own auteurial style, Franco’s films still feel like he’s merely copying what he has seen elsewhere without »

AFI Fest's Young Hollywood Panel on Superheroes, Punching, and Queen Latifah

8 November 2014 11:43 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Margaret and Anne Marie here, reporting from AFI Fest ("presented by [corporation]!"). 

Last night the AFI and the La Times kicked off a series of panel discussions with its "Young Hollywood Roundtable," whose panelists ranged widely in age and perspective but are all of whom making their mark on the movie business. Jenny Slate, writer/star of critical hit Obvious Child and former SNL castmember, was joined by Jena Malone (Inherent Vice, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), Logan Lerman (Fury, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), and Joey King (Wish I Was Here, FX's Fargo).

Here are 8 lessons we learned from the Young Hollywood Roundtable:

Anne Marie:

1. Queen Latifah's royal legacy is enduring and eternal. When asked who her inspiration was, Joey King informed the audience that Queen Latifah is underrated. What followed was a 5 minute Latifah love-fest where Jenny Slate promised a detailed list of reasons why Queen Latifah »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will produce under their Point Grey banner alongside Franco's Rabbit Bandini.

"Neustadter and Weber are the perfect writers to join the filmmaking gang we have over here with Seth Rogen, et al," said Franco.

Everybody Joins The Cast Of James Franco’s Next Movie Zeroville

24 October 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Franco’s next filmmaking project, Zeroville, began its journey back in 2011 when the director-actor-writer-poet-artist optioned the rights to Steve Erickson’s novel. Alas, with so many ventures cluttering Franco’s plate it’s easy to see how this zany caper hasn’t received much notice. That is until today, as Screen Daily has learned that the film has already begun shooting – and there’s a ton of big names attached.

In addition to the main man himself nabbing a starring role, Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, Craig Robinson, Joey King and Horatio Sanz have also signed on to star. The basic premise revolves around a film nerd who relocates to Hollywood in the 1960s to be closer to the ‘biz. However, he “enters a world of sex, drugs, rock and roll, the decline of the movie studios and the rise of independent renegade directors. »
