Lady Gaga, Jane Fonda Steal the Show at Golden Globes Banquet

13 August 2015 10:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. had a starry lineup as it handed out $2.1 million to various causes, but stealing the show were Jane Fonda with her ad-libs, Lady Gaga with a one-liner about her nose, and Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro who struggled hilariously to read the TelePrompter.

The occasion was the HFPA’s Aug. 13 Grants Banquet at the Beverly Wilshire, with the org’s new president Lorenzo Soria saying that it was a record handout from the org which annually presents the Golden Globes.

About two dozen stars, who sometimes made presentations singly but mostly in pairs, announced the 55 grantees, most of whom were in attendance.

Early in the evening, Fonda announced several honorees, then introduced the next presenters, Blunt and Del Toro — who were nowhere to be found, leading Fonda to nearly two minutes of ad libs, including the jokey shrug, “Benicio — You look in his eyes and think, »

Jennifer Lawrence: Looking at potential Best Actress contenders

7 August 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hollywood Contenders: Ladies and gentlemen, as you all know from the last year or so as well as my handful of articles again during this year, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think will happen six or so months from now, but it’s a whole other thing entirely to actually know something about what will be in contention. To help out in that regard, I’m once again running down some of the major contenders in each Oscar category in order to prep you all for the season to come. Basically, the format will have me saying a few words about what/who I feel are the top tier contenders right now in said categories, along with a longer list afterwards of many of the other hopefuls that the Academy might take a shine to. »

'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

28 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »
