Birdman and Boyhood top Critics' Choice Movie Awards 2015

15 January 2015 9:31 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman was lauded with seven gongs at this year's Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

Lead actor Michael Keaton scored two of the awards for Actor and Actor in a Comedy, while the movie also won in the Acting Ensemble, Score, Original Screenplay, Editing and Cinematography categories.

However, the Alejandro González Iñárritu-directed black comedy was unable to beat Boyhood to the Picture award.

The coming-of-age drama had the second highest number of awards in total, which included Director for Richard Linklater, Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette and Young Actor/Actress for Ellar Coltrane.

The Grand Budapest Hotel followed suit with three awards for Comedy, Art Direction and Costume Design, while Guardians of the Galaxy took two with Action Movie and Hair & Make-up.

2015 Critics Choice Awards Winners Topped by 'Boyhood' and 'Birdman'

15 January 2015 8:37 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Birdman led the field heading into tonight's 2015 Critics Choice Awards with 13 total nominations followed by The Grand Budapest Hotel with 11 nominations, and Boyhood with eight. Of course, following this morning's 2015 Oscar nominations all eyes were on the Critics Choice Awards to see how this awards season will continue to flow. Some were already declaring the Oscars irrelevant, bypassed by the likes of the more diverse list of nominees at both the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards as the Oscars failed to nominate Selma and saw a list of acting nominees dominated by all-white actors. Personally, I think people are looking to blame the Academy for overall industry ills, but I guess there is some level of importance to be placed on being the organization to move the dial. Is that by nominations alonec How much do winners matterc That's probably a question best left for another time, as for tonight's awards. »

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Winners: The Complete List

15 January 2015 8:07 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Just as it made a strong showing in the Oscar nominations Thursday morning, “Birdman” was the front-runner with the most nominations for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Thursday night. It also ended the night with the most trophies, taking home seven, including both Best Actor and Best Actor in a Comedy for Michael Keaton, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Editing — the film was shot to look as if it was a single continuous take.

Boyhood” followed with four awards, including two of the biggest honors of the night: Best Picture and Best Director for Richard Linklater. The film’s star »

Awards season continued Thursday night with the 20th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards. Live with Kelly and Michael's Michael Strahan hosted the show at the Hollywood Palladium, and kept the mood "light and easy," as promised (starting with a Magic Mike-inspired strip-tease to open the show). Birdman walked away with the most statues, and Kevin Costner, Ron Howard and Jessica Chastain received special awards during the ceremony. Birdman entered the race with the most nominations, 13, and took six of the categories. Not far behind was Boyhood, which took four of its eight nominated categories, and The Grand Budapest Hotel with 11 nominations and three wins. »

'Grand Budapest,' 'Interstellar' dominate Oscar's craft categories

15 January 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Well, there we went. The Oscar nominations are in and, in a nice change of pace, the crafts categories were revealed on the air. Let's see what the last several months of build-up has left for us. A few trends come to mind… The (Near) Shut-Outs Oh how the mighty have fallen. A measly sound editing nomination for "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" shows that the novelty eventually does wear off. Goose eggs for "Noah" (despite a strong push), "Nightcrawler" (given its precursor run), "Gone Girl" (you would have thought it had great chances in film editing and original score), "Transformers: Age of Extinction" (given the sound branch's love of this series) and "Big Eyes" (given the pedigree) have also got to be considered disappointing. And even though it garnered two nominations, I can't imagine that there aren't some long faces regarding "Guardians of the Galaxy," with »

Soundtracking: 87th Academy Awards

15 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Thursday morning provided its share of surprises and snubs, but the Academy’s musical branch took a pretty clear anti-star stance in the Best Song category.

One year after the likes of U2, Pharrell Williams and Arcade Fire dominated the music categories, Oscar’s Best Song voters left big names like Lorde, Lana Del Rey and Patti Smith out of contention.

The biggest names in Best Song, instead, come from Selma’s entry into the category: “Glory” performed by John Legend and Common. Because the Academy enjoys formality the pair’s given names - John Stephens (Legend) and Lonnie Lynn (Common) - can now be added to the collective trivia file.

The song was one of just a pair of nominations for the historical drama, but having just won the Golden Globe in the same category, it begins the race as the front-runner.

 

 

The rest of the song entries run the gamut, »

The snubs and surprises of this year’s batch of Oscar nominees

15 January 2015 8:25 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

2014 was a great year for women in film, but looking at this year’s Oscar nominations, you’d have no idea. No women were nominated in for Best Director, Adapted Screenplay, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, or Original Score. Boyhood’s Sandra Adair was the lone female editor nominated for Film Editing.

Continuing the trend, Ava DuVernay, basically a shoo-in for a Best Director nod for her Mlk biopic Selma, and Gone Girl screenwriter and novelist Gillian Flynn were the two biggest snubs at this morning’s press conference for the 87th Academy Awards. Altogether the popular, critically acclaimed films netted three award nominations.

David FincherGone Girl’s director, also received no nomination – with Foxcatcher’s Bennett Miller shockingly assuming the fifth place in the Best Director category alongside more likely winners Alejandro Gonzalez Inarrituand Richard Linklater.

David Oyelowo (Selma), Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler), and Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel) are »

7 Oscar Nominations We Actually Wanted to See Happen, But Didn't

15 January 2015 6:09 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When it comes to the Academy Awards, there are always snubs that really surprise us -- Jennifer Aniston for Cake, Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler were among the few shut out. And this year, we couldn’t help but lament the fact that Tilda Swinton, Jennifer Lawrence, and others weren’t recognized for their achievements on screen.

Best Supporting Actress: Tilda Swinton, Snowpiercer

The cult hit of the summer was definitely the post-apocalyptic sci-fi film about the world’s remaining population living on a train. Tilda Swinton slayed audiences as Mason, the monstrous spokesperson of the engine’s caretaker who spars with the revolt’s leader played by Chris Evans. Her over-the-top performance may have been too camp for the Academy but her commitment made every minute of screen time worth it.

News: GQ's Names Tilda Swinton Woman of the Year

Best Original Song: Jennifer Lawrence, “The Hanging Tree” for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

Tech Support: Final predictions in Oscar's crafts categories

14 January 2015 11:39 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the past three and a half months, we have previewed the races in all Oscar categories and spoken with many of the leading contenders. For the ninth year here at Tech Support, it's now time to put all of that aside and put forward final predictions. Which craftsmen and craftswomen will be cited by their peers on Thursday? Best Cinematography Emmanuel Lubezki looks in fantastic position to earn his second straight statuette for his very, very long takes on "Bidman." Robert Yeoman and Dick Pope have earned guild, Bfca and BAFTA nods for their gorgeous period work that blurred the line between camera work and the painted and crafted arts on "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Mr. Turner" respectively. The former will likely rack up a host of nods while this is a perfect chance to recognize Pope’s collaborations with Leigh. They’re in good shape. Roger Deakins missed a BAFTA nod, »

Final 2015 Oscar Nomination Predictions

14 January 2015 12:21 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tomorrow morning, January 15, the 2015 Oscar nominations will be announced and I'll be here to offer up the complete list and offer up my thoughts on the winners, losers, snubs and surprises, but before that time comes let's take one final look at each category and offer up our predictions. At the beginning of the year I had Angelina Jolie's Unbroken at the top of my Best Picture list and today that film doesn't even make my final list of predicted nominees. In fact, only two of my early year predictions -- Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel -- made my final list, perhaps, in that case, it's best suited they sit at #1 and #2. It's been an odd year given the fact the major contender for Best Picture is a small, $2.4 million budgeted feature from IFC Films. A project pieced together over the course of twelve years is looking to »

‘Blackhat’ Composer Backs Down After Slamming Michael Mann Over Score

13 January 2015 2:40 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Controversy struck Michael Mann’s new cyberhacker actioner from within this week when composer Harry Gregson-Williams accused the director of “slicing and dicing” his work on the film. So who wants credit for Blackhat’s hacked-up score?

“I would like it to be known for what it’s worth that the ‘score’ for Blackhat maybe credited to me, but contains almost none of my compositions,” Gregson-Williams declared Monday on Facebook, four days after the Chris Hemsworth starrer premiered in Los Angeles. It was only during Thursday’s premiere, Gregson-Williams wrote, that he “discovered, to my horror, music that shocked and surprised me…quasi emotional (synth) string pieces that I’d never heard in my life before.

“I knew of at least one other composer, a good one at that(!), that had put in months of work on this movie just as I had, but this appeared to me to be »
