Best Actress Besties Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan Honored in Santa Barbara

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — The Santa Barbara International Film Festival displayed the proper foresight in late November last year when selecting “Room” star Brie Larson and “Brooklyn’s” Saoirse Ronan as first-time tandem recipients of the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award: Both have remained out in front of the best actress Oscar race in a year marked by a number of female-centric narratives, and they continue to lock horns heading into the Feb. 28 Academy Awards ceremony.

Of course, nothing approaching competitive awareness was on display Monday night as the two ingenues — who have been previously recognized by Sbiff in the Virtuosos sidebar — enjoyed their dual tributes. In fact, they’ve become quite close on the circuit.

Alas, circumstances kept them apart this time — the production of “Kong: Skull Island,” to be specific. The blockbuster sequel has filled Larson’s schedule all season as she has bounced from locations in Vietnam, »

Oscar Telecast Will Be ‘Most Diverse Ever,’ Says Producer at Luncheon

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s Oscar show “will be the most diverse ever,” producer David Hill told Variety on Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon. Despite the lack of acting nominees of color — which the Academy has no control over — Hill and fellow Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin have been working since September to make sure the Oscars “will have true diversity and will represent what the world looks like.”

The remarks were made at the 35th annual event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Hudlin said that an Oscar nomination is “an amazing moment in the life of any nominee,” and that the lunch is intended to celebrate their accomplishments.

They agreed that it’s crucial for the entire film industry to attain inclusion, but there is also room to celebrate the great film work of 2015, which been somewhat overshadowed in the past month. Or, as Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences »

2016 Oscar Previews: Part 1

7 February 2016 5:11 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 88th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 28th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

'Brooklyn' Becoming a TV Series, Without Saoirse Ronan

5 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The Academy Award-nominated film "Brooklyn" is getting made into a TV series, without Oscar-nominated star Saoirse Ronan.

Variety reports that the BBC is adapting the movie for television, and that the series will revolve around Julie Walters' character, landlady Ma Kehoe, and a mix of Irish, British, and American young women living at her boarding house.

In the film, Irish immigrant Eilis Lacey (Ronan) is living at the house when she meets and falls in love with Tony (Emory Cohen). But a family emergency takes her back to Ireland, and Eilis becomes torn between home she grew up in and the home she's made for herself in New York.

For her performance as the strict, sharp-tongued Ma, Walters was nominated as a supporting actress for a BAFTA award.

"Brooklyn" received much critical acclaim, and with "Downton Abbey" finished, perhaps this might be BBC's next great period drama.

"Brooklyn" Bounces to TV

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The big screen to TV spinoff window keeps getting smaller, now with an adaptation truly worth fawning over. Brooklyn producers Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey are bringing a spinoff of the Best Picture nominee to the BBC.

As if that wasn't enticing enough, the series is to center around house matron Mrs. Keogh with star Julie Walters set to reprise her role. We're well on the record about adoring those boarding house scenes, from the charmingly tart to the emotionally resonant. If the show can be as inspired as everything we got from the time spent under Mrs. Keogh's roof, we're in for something special indeed.

The concept of the show itself leaves much to obsess over as details develop on this one. Will any of the original ensemble members be returning along with Walters? Has Dolores found any chill? Who is *ahem* trustworthy enough to inherit the basement room from Eilis? »

Julie Walters to Reprise ‘Brooklyn’ Role in BBC TV Drama Series

4 February 2016 9:07 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — Julie Walters will reprise her BAFTA-nominated supporting role as the acerbic landlady Ma Kehoe in a TV version of the feature film “Brooklyn,” Variety has confirmed. Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey’s Wildgaze Films, which produced the movie, are developing the TV series with the BBC.

Wildgaze is seeking writers for the TV drama, which will focus on Kehoe’s New York boarding house, and will feature the same group of Irish, British and American young women. The film’s leading actress Saoirse Ronan is not expected to return in her role as Eilis Lacey.

The movie “Brooklyn,” which was released in the U.S. by Fox Searchlight, is set in 1950s Ireland and New York. John Crowley directed the pic and Nick Hornby wrote the script, which was adapted from Colm Toibin’s novel. The film picked up three Oscar nominations — for film, lead actress and adapted screenplay. »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

4 February 2016 6:34 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  Much of the early news surrounding the best actress race centered on where Oscar voters would place Rooney Mara ("Carol") and Alicia Vikander ("The Danish Girl") on their ballots. The pair were both nominated for supporting actress at the SAGs and Critics Choice, and both as lead at the Golden Globes. Now that nominations have been announced, we know that both have been regulated to the category for which they campaigned, which left the door open for Charlotte Rampling ("45 Years") and Jennifer Lawrence ("Joy") to make the cut. Regardless, the best actress race seems pretty much like a head-to-head battle between Brie Larson ("Room") and Saoirse Ronan ("Brooklyn"). Both actresses are rising stars that give two of the year's most resonant performances. Larson won the Globes, though she's certainly not as big of a frontrunner as Julianne Moore and Blanchett have »
