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
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 Gotham Awards, honoring indepedent film, officially kicked off this year's awards season with the announcement of its slate of nominees. "Boyhood" and "Birdman" were both well-represented, but so were films from earlier in the year such as "Tracks," "Under the Skin," and "Obvious Child" (all three of which earned nods for their lead female actors Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johansson, and Jenny Slate, respectively). Also of note: Stave Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum were awarded a special jury award for their ensemble work in "Foxcatcher." The awards will be presented in NYC Dec. 1 in a ceremony that will also honor Tilda Swinton, "Foxcatcher" director Bennett Miller, and Netflix's Ted Sarandos.

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 »

Birdman received two awards, including Best Director (for Alejandro G. Iñárritu) and Best Actor (Michael Keaton). The Best Picture nominations were rounded out by Ira Sachs’ Love is Strange, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and a left-field pick, Jonathan Glazer’s unsettling tale of alien visitation, Under the Skin.

★★☆☆☆Experienced animator Jorge R. Gutierrez teams up with fan-favourite producer Guillermo Del Toro for his directorial debut The Book of Life (2014), a visually dazzling but regrettably stale spin on the colourful Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead. Manola (Diego Luna), the sensitive son of a prized bullfighter, and Joaquin (Channing Tatum), an adventurous risk-taker, are childhood best friends with one thing in common: their love for Maria (Zoe Saldana). As the boys grow older, they vie for Maria’s affection in different ways - one with soft songs of undying love, and the other with the point of a sword - hoping to emerge the victor.

Foxcatcher: New photos from the upcoming drama Foxcatcher reveal Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo in poses that are anything but glamorous. Based on a true story, Carell plays the isolated and wealthy John du Pont, who becomes a mentor to champion wrestlers, first to an intense loner (Tatum) and then to his older brother (Ruffalo), a family man. Touted for awards consideration, the movie opens in theaters on November 14. [USA Today] Green Room: Patrick Stewart, who has become well-known as the gentle yet powerful Professor X in the X-Men movies, is set to costar as a white-supermacist leader in crime thriller Green Room. Jeremy Saulnier, responsible for this year's crackling revenge flick Blue Ruin, wrote the script and is directing. Stewart joins...

Directed by Bennett Miller.
Bennett Miller has slowly begun his ascent into the Premier League of Hollywood directors. His extraordinary work on Capote and Moneyball has lifted him in amongst a handful of film maestro’s that has made him a magnet for talent. And three years after his jaunt into the worlds of baseball, he is back with Foxcatcher, a film with a huge weight of expectation after a six-minute standing ovation at this year’s Cannes.

While I am still not over the idea of Hollywood’s nice guy Steve Carell playing a obsessive psychopath, there are apparently other things going on in Bennett Miller’s dark drama Foxcatcher. There’s Channing Tatum, of course, playing Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, and Mark Ruffalo as his brother Dave. Then there’s the complicated relationship that develops between the Schultz brothers and John du Pont (Carell), as the latter helps them train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new training facility on his estate. As the three men interact, obsession, power, and paranoia begin to take over, and du Pont’s increasingly erratic and disturbing behavior threatens to drive a rift between the brothers. Exciting stuff, made all the more so when you realize that it’s based on a true story.
You can just feel the menace and alienation in a new batch of images from Foxcatcher. »

Dayum! Is that really the guy from 'Live with Kelly and Michael'?!
Dayum! Is that really the guy from Live with Kelly and Michael?!
Michael Strahan, 42, looked so good on set of Magic Mike Xxl that even Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum, was impressed. The folks at Good Morning America managed to snag a photo of their ABC colleague as he showed off his jacked, six-pack (maybe even seven) abs.
Good morning America, indeed!
Okay @michaelstrahan! Look at this behind the scenes photo of him (and @channingtatum from the "Magic Mike Xxl" set.

Steve Carrell is almost unrecognizable playing John du Pont in the biographical drama Foxcatcher, also starring Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. Foxcatcher is getting rave reviews across the board and looking at the trailer, you can probably see why. The dramatic tale of Olympic wrestling champions and brothers Mark and Dave Schultz, the later killed […]
As if Magic Mike Xxl needed more man candy, here comes Michael Strahan! While filming continues in Georgia, the popular daytime talk show host snapped a photo from the set with his co-star Channing Tatum. Instead of spoiling anything about the storyline, however, Strahan simply gave fans a clear view of his six-pack abs. "Okay @MichaelStrahan!" Good Morning America wrote on Instagram. "Look at this behind the scenes photo of him (and @ChanningTatum) from the 'Magic Mike Xxl' set." Clearly, someone has been working on their fitness and taking this role very seriously. While you try to simmer down after looking at the hot picture, we can't help but compare »
A batch of new Foxcatcher images have landed online from director Bennett Miller’s (Capote) upcoming dark drama, and they do an excellent job of evoking the tone of the film. Steve Carell stars as John du Pont, an eccentric millionaire who decided to host an Olympic Wrestling training camp on his grounds despite having no experience with the sport himself. The crux of the film revolves around du Pont’s relationship with Olympic Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and in particular du Pont’s mentorship of the younger brother Mark, who lived in the shadow of his more successful brother. I caught the film at Tiff and it’s magnificent. The performances by Carell, Tatum, and Ruffalo are positively transcendent, as each actor wholly disappears into his role. Don’t miss this one, folks. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Foxcatcher images, »

What is the single hottest thing about a Hollywood star? Many would argue that the sight of a handsome man holding a puppy will always make you melt. But even hotter? Your Hollywood crush holding, playing with, and/or taking care of his children. What you’re about to learn is that no man is too proud to look absolutely ridiculous if it’s for the sake of his mini-mes. Ben Affleck taking his kids trick-or-treating. Channing Tatum shamelessly wearing a pink butterfly blanket to amuse little Everly. Chris Hemsworth rocking a BabyBjorn. Your hearts are about to melt. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
