5 Great Film and Music Moments From 2014

8 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Real cinema happens when a filmmaker uses all of the tools at his or her disposal to provide the viewer with an experience they can’t get in any other medium.  Sound, vision, and narrative all collide and the experience can occasionally be so singular and indelible you wonder why you, as a viewer, don’t advocate for yourself and seek the feeling out more often.  It’s like a drug. Often times, these moments are accompanied by a piece of music that buoys them to such a degree that you can’t imagine the scene playing out in any other way.  While I didn’t see every movie released this year, it was easy to come up with five moments from the ones I did see that struck me in this manner.  Hit the jump for 5 Great Film and Music Moments From 2014. Gone Girl About halfway through Gone Girl the film, »

Oscars: ‘Gone Girl’ Composer Trent Reznor Reveals How He Gets Into David Fincher’s Head

17 December 2014 7:36 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

A version of this story first appeared in the Jan. 9 issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

“Is it good? I’m not sure, but I know I worked my ass off,” Trent Reznor, the Nine Inch Nails frontman/Oscar-winning film composer told me of his latest score — the one that he and Atticus Ross put together for David Fincher’s smash-hit Gone Girl — when we sat down for an hour-long conversation a few weeks ago in Beverly Hills.

It took a while for me to accept that the person sitting across from me — a clean-cut, soft-spoken and polite family man just months shy of his 50th birthday — is the same one behind Nin, the post-punk “industrial rock” band that he founded in 1988. Ever since, the band has churned out a constant flow of hit songs like “Closer” and “Something I Can Never Have” — the sort »

2015 Critics Choice Awards Nominations Led by 'Birdman' with 13 Nominations

15 December 2014 7:11 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Birdman is clearly a favorite this awards season, at least when it comes to nominations as it once again tops a list of nominees, this time the 2015 Critics Choice Awards as it leads the field with 13 total nominations followed by The Grand Budapest Hotel, which continues to surge this awards season with 11 nominations, and Boyhood with eight. Full disclosure, I'm part of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca), which nominates and votes on these awards, but I'm a little nervous my nominees this year weren't counted as I mistakenly missed the deadline by a few hours thinking it was on Saturday, not Friday. Oops, though looking at these nominations it doesn't seem as if it would have mattered. For example, I don't see Locke anywhere, Carrie Coon (Gone Girl) didn't get a supporting actress nomination, A Most Wanted Man didn't get an adapted screenplay nomination, no nomination for The Raid 2 in Best Action Movie, »

‘Birdman,’ ‘Grand Budapest’ Top Critics Choice Awards Nominations

15 December 2014 6:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With 13 bids, “Birdman” led nominations for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, followed by 11 for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a one-two punch for Fox Searchlight. “Boyhood” followed with eight.

The noms for Angelina Jolie (“Unbroken”) and Ava DuVernay (“Selma”) mean that two of the six director contenders are women. Among the films earning more attention than in this year’s previous kudos announcements: “Interstellar” (seven); “Guardians of the Galaxy” (five) and “Unbroken” (four).

The voting, by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn.,  is one of the more reliable Oscar predictors, in terms of winners. The group has matched the eventual Oscar-winning best pic in 12 of the last 15 years.

As for nominations, the Ccma are a good guide for what’s popular in awards conversations, but several factors limit the noms’ powers as an Oscar omen.

For one thing, this group cites six contenders in most categories, compared to five from the Academy. »

‘Birdman’, ‘Budapest’ And ‘Boyhood’ Get Key Oscar Boost To Lead Critics’ Choice Movie Award Nominations; Jolie Rebounds From Globe Snub

15 December 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Continuing its romp through the critics kudos this awards season, Fox Searchlight’s Birdman drew a whopping 13 nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. In fact it’s a big day for Fox in general as Searchlight’s March release, The Grand Budapest Hotel was remembered to the tune of 11 nominations, while big Fox scored 6 nominations with Gone Girl. All three compete for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and significant acting nods. This is a big boost in particular for Budapest, coming on the heels of its SAG nod for Outstanding Cast as well as four key Golden Globe nominations.  Usually films opening as early as March are largely forgotten when it comes to Best Picture attention, but Budapest could be a rare exception in recent years if this triumph for the Wes Anderson comedy is repeated at the Oscars.  The last film that opened as early as March, »

114 Scores & 79 Songs Are Eligible For Oscars, Including Music By Jonny Greenwood, Mica Levi, Lana Del Rey & More

14 December 2014 7:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ok, the Academy has spoken. On Friday the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science announced that 114 original scores from eligible 2014 feature-length motion pictures are in contention for nominations in for the 87th Oscars. One composer you may possibly see nominated more than once? Alexandre Desplat, who has five eligible scores in competition, including “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game” and "Unbroken." You’ve hopefully seen our Best Scores of the Year feature and there are a lot of those picks in this group, including Alex Ebert score for "A Most Violent Year," Hans Zimmer’s celestial “Interstellar” score, Mica Levi’s atonal work on “Under the Skin,” the creepy and textured "Gone Girl" music by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, and thankfully, Jonny Greenwood’s “Inherent Vice” (you’ll recall his “There Will Be Blood” score was rendered ineligible in 2007 over technicalities). In the end, however, there are only six of our. »

79 Original Songs and 114 Original Scores in Contention for Oscar Race

13 December 2014 3:11 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled lists of the eligible contenders in the Oscar races for Best Original Song and Best Original Score.  In the former category I’d have to say “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie is an early favorite, and I would love to see Tegan & Sara and The Lonely Island perform on the Oscar stage.  Other standouts include two songs from Boyhood, both co-written by Ethan Hawke, and the beautiful “For the Dancing and the Dreaming” from How to Train Your Dragon 2.  On the Best Original Score side of things, it’s kind of an embarrassment of riches.  How to choose between John Powell’s Dragon 2 score, Alexandre Desplat’s incredible work on The Imitation Game, Hans Zimmer’s astounding Interstellar score, James Newton Howard's propulsive work on Nightcrawler, etc.? Check out the full lists of eligible contenders in »

Nominations For The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Announced

11 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.

There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor. »
