Stars React to Moonlight and La La Land Mix-Up, Oscar Accountants Apologize

27 February 2017 9:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The ending of this year's Oscar telecast may go down as one of the most talked-about in history, as the wrong film, La La Land was announced as Best Picture. Bonnie & Clyde stars Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway reunited to present the final award, on the 40th anniversary of that classic film, but when Warren Beatty opened the envelope, he was surprised to discover that the envelope was actually for Best Actress, which Emma Stone had just won for La La Land moments earlier. The accounting firm of Price Waterhouse and Cooper issued a statement apologizing for this unfortunate error, while we have also compiled a number of tweets from celebrities as they watched this on-stage drama unfold. Take a look at the accounting firm's full statement below.

"We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during »

‘Moonlight:’ Barry Jenkins, Guillermo del Toro and More Celebs React to Best Picture Win After Unprecedented Mix-Up

27 February 2017 7:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Sunday night, “Moonlight” made history by becoming the lowest budget film to ever win an Academy Award for Best Picture. The announcement of Barry Jenkins’ film winning the biggest award of the night was remarkable and historic, after the unprecedented mistake that caused Warren Beatty to announce Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” as the winner. The “La La Land” team had already taken the stage when Beatty and fellow presenter Faye Dunaway had to interrupt to announce that there had been a (big) mistake: They had been given the wrong envelope.

Host Jimmy Kimmel made a valiant effort to smooth things over when he was closing the show, saying: “We hate to see people disappointed but the good news is we got to hear some extra speeches.”

Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said two winners cards caused the confusion:

“I will say, I saw two cards, and so things just happen. I wanted to see the card, to see the card, and Warren refused to show the card to anybody before he showed it to me. And so he did. He came upstairs and he walked over to »

Interview: Dale Robinette, on His Iconic Photo From ‘La La Land’

23 February 2017 6:15 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The photograph of the 2016 movie year is undoubtedbly the iconic shot of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, caught in mid dance, in the musical “La La Land.” The film received 14 nominations for this Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony (Feb. 26th), and the “Unit Still Photographer” who got the shot was Dale Robinette.

“Uncle Dale” Robinette first contacted me via email in 2013, to give information about some photos he took on the film “Lovelace.” Ever since then he has been a reliable email pal, sending me image after image from the movie sets that he is “blessed” (his word) to work on. He has plied his skills in Hollywood as a Unit Still Photographer since 1988, after a career as a stage and television actor in New York and Los Angeles. Starting with a TV short called “The Big Five” (1988), he has worked his way up the ladder, and has built »

Black History Month: Spotlight on Octavia Spencer

23 February 2017 11:40 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Steven Fenton

On February 26, 2012, Octavia Spencer won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her endearing performance as the feisty Minny Jackson in Tate Taylor’s The Help. With her win, Spencer joined an elite group, becoming just the sixth black actress to win an acting Oscar (and only the seventh overall, if you count Irene Cara’s Original Song win for Flashdance, since she also starred in the film). Prior to 2011, Spencer had worked steadily since the mid-90s, gaining a reputation as a warm and generous co-star and a beloved character actress. So her win in February 2012 felt like an authentic opportunity for the academy to recognize an industry favorite.

Spencer was an indomitable force in the 2011 awards season, snatching wins at the Critics Choice, SAG awards, Globe Globes, and BAFTA, and beating out a talented crop of women in sensational breakout performances, including: Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids »

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

Number of Female Film Protagonists Hit High in 2016 (Study)

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Women are finally moving to the center of the frame. From Amy Adams’ steely, alien-decipherer in “Arrival” to Felicity Jones’ rebellious warrior in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” actresses are driving the action in more Hollywood films. Though audiences are still more than twice as likely to see male characters than female ones on screen, change is coming, and quickly too.

Females made up 29% of protagonists in the 100 highest-grossing films of 2016, according to a new study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University. That’s a 7% rise from 2015 levels in the number of star turns by women and represents a recent historical high.

Women also found themselves better represented in ensembles, with actresses making up 37% of major characters in the most popular films, a 3 percentage points jump from the previous year, and another historical high. The percentage of female »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on RottenTomatoes.com), audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”
