Busy Philipps Recounts What Happened During Oscars’ Best Picture Blunder from the Front Row: ‘We All Heard It Right There’

3 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Busy Philipps was front and center on Oscar night during the now-infamous ending — in which an envelope mix-up caused Bonnie and Clyde costars Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway to mistakenly announce La La Land as the Best Picture winner instead of Moonlight, the actual victor.

But according to the 37-year-old actress, news of the error hit her and the rest of the celebs sitting in the Dolby Theatre’s front row first — before anyone on stage had even been informed.

The Cougar Town actress was at the Oscars with Bff and nominee Michelle Williams, who was sitting to her left beside Casey Affleck. »

Damien Chazelle Wins Oscar For Best Director For ‘La La Land’

26 February 2017 8:42 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

La La Land” director Damien Chazelle took home the award for Best Director Sunday night in Los Angeles. “This was a movie about love, and I was lucky enough to fall in love while making it,” said Chazelle, gesturing to his wife.

La La Land” is a musical about two aspiring artists, a jazz musician and an actress chasing their dreams while living in Los Angeles. It is a send up to the Golden Age of Hollywood, polarizing for being a decidedly apolitical film in the midst of a very political moment. “La La Land” stars Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, John Legend, Rosemarie Dewitt and J.K. Simmons. The all original score was written by Justin Hurwitz, with cinematography by Linus Sandgren.

Black Mirror Season 4 Taps Triple 9’s John Hillcoat As New Details Surface

21 February 2017 1:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From The Road to Lawless to star-studded crime saga Triple 9, John Hillcoat is a director that specializes in the art of crafting dark, engrossing stories around deeply human characters, even if the latter two movies aren’t talked about in the same breath as his adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s apocalyptic masterclass – and rightfully so.

Since orchestrating a melange of crooked criminals and equally crooked cops in Triple 9, there’s been nary a mention of Hillcoat’s next project, but it seems The Tracking Board (via /Film) has today brought an end to that admittedly brief radio silence. Sources close to Ttb now claim the writer-director has climbed on board to direct an episode of Black Mirror season 4, Charlie Brooker and Netflix’s jet-black anthology series that examines far-future technology through a very particular, and often crushingly bleak, lens. The episode, rumored to be titled “Crocodile,” will purportedly focus on two female protagonists, »

Movie Review – La La Land (2016)

17 January 2017 3:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

La La Land, 2016.

Directed by Damien Chazelle.

Starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Rosemarie DeWitt, J.K. Simmons, and John Legend.

Synopsis:

Mia is an aspiring actress working as a barista on the Warner Bros. lot. Sebastian is a musician who harbours dreams of opening his own jazz club. The two meet and fall head over heels in love, only for dreams and ambitions to get in the way.

Is it too much to ask for a movie to simply make us feel good? Apparently not as far as the glorious La La Land is concerned. In this era of self-consciously gritty and overblown blockbusters, in waltzes Damien Chazelle’s vibrant homage to the classic movie musical, one whose emotional acuity and storytelling parameters couldn’t be better defined, and whose jubilant spirit is ultimately impossible to resist.

Combining the Technicolor majesty and sweep of Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg with the contemporary, »

‘La La Land’ Review

13 January 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, Amiée Conn, Terry Walters, Thom Shelton, Callie Hernandez, Jessica Rothe, Sonoya Mizuno, J.K. Simmons, Jason Fuchs | Written and Directed by Damien Chazelle

The third film from Damien Chazelle, in what might be dubbed his “Jazz Trilogy”, La La Land eschews the New Wave immediacy of Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench and the psychological horror notes of Whiplash, and brings us a blast of Golden Age musical energy. La La Land arrives on a zephyr of hype; and while it’s not up to the standard of his previous feature, it has a certain charm of its own.

Except, it’s not really its own. Like The Artist before it, La La Land is an awards-friendly picture – proudly presented in “Cinemascope” – which is inextricably wedded to past glories. Yet I’m not sure its modern elements are entirely comfortable in the relationship. »
