My Complete and Fearless 2017 Oscar Predictions

10 hours ago | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Now that the ballots are en route to the 89th Academy Awards, it is time for us to predict who will be the big winners! Damien Chazelle.s .La La Land. dominated the nominations with 14 nods but will it shine on Oscar night at the city of stars? I.m predicting that the romance musical will take home 11 awards including Best Picture! The musical will only lose in the actor (sorry Ryan Gosling), original screenplay, and to its own .Audition. in the original song categories.

And you know why .La La Land. will win big? Because when the country is in turmoil, popular culture swings to the opposite way. And the film, with its sweet rose-colored palette and fancy production numbers made us all happy. And Hollywood wants us all happy.

We.ll find out all the happy Oscar winners on Sunday at 5 p.m. Join me on my Facebook page, »

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor Race

21 February 2017 6:07 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceThe 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceAdriana Floridia2/21/2017 9:07:00 Am

The Best Supporting Actor Oscar is pretty much Mahershala Ali's to lose.

Despite that, this year's line-up of Best Supporting Actor nominees is incredibly strong, and anyone would be a worthy winner. However, Ali has won almost every award leading up to the Oscars, except for the Golden Globe which surprisingly went to Nocturnal Animals' Aaron Taylor Johnson (who wasn't even nominated for the Oscar). Moonlight is a major awards contender that right now looks like it's being outshone by La La Land. If Moonlight is guaranteed an Oscar in any category, it's this one.

We're breaking down the nominees for Best Supporting Actor below!

Mahershala Ali, Moonlight

2017 Oscar Previews: Part 1

20 February 2017 12:41 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 89th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 26th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

Together Again: Ferris who? Matthew Broderick’s true calling is as a bit player for Kenneth Lonergan

19 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

There are no real villains in Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester By The Sea, The A.V. Club’s favorite movie of last year and a major contender at this Sunday’s Academy Awards. The movie is about grief and the way it puts one particularly bereaved man at war with himself, and the rest of the world, regardless of time’s inconsistent ability to heal psychic wounds. The closest thing the movie has to any bad guys enters the narrative only briefly. After Patrick (Lucas Hedges) loses his father early in the film, the will designates his uncle, Lee (Casey Affleck), the aforementioned grieving man, as his guardian. Lee is reluctant to take on this responsibility, especially considering that Patrick’s mother Elise is still alive, although not really in Patrick’s life due to her alcoholism. When the now-sober Elise does reemerge, putting out feelers for the possibility that »

Penultimate Oscar predictions

17 February 2017 10:31 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The Academy Awards are in just over a week, ladies and gentlemen. My how time flies, right? With the show coming so soon, there can be a rush to finalize predictions and try to hold course until the end. That’s not my way though, as I play around with my picks right until just before the big night. This second to last update is sort of a fail-safe, giving me a chance to still potentially go out on a limb or two before getting down to business. The Oscars will unfold in less than ten days, so if you’re not excited yet, now is the time to start getting excited. This is what we spend all this time preparing for, after all… Below are the penultimate picks for the upcoming ceremony. Next week will be the big one, where I’ll finally come to grips with this whole thing, »

Oscar Front-Runner Casey Affleck on Being ‘Demanding’ and Learning to Love Awards Season

16 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

This Casey Affleck story first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Oscar magazine. Questions. There were always questions. With “Manchester by the Sea,” writer-director Kenneth Lonergan had written a shattering drama about a Boston janitor unable to escape a tragedy in his past. With Casey Affleck as the janitor, Michelle Williams as his ex-wife and Lucas Hedges as a teenage nephew whose custody unexpectedly goes to the Affleck character, he had assembled a cast that was capable of illuminating every moment of humor and wrenching emotion in the richly nuanced script. In many cases, the performances — particularly. »

‘Manchester By the Sea’: Why Kenneth Lonergan’s Script Is A Screenwriting Master Class

15 February 2017 5:47 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Manchester By the Sea” writer-director Kenneth Lonergan was a playwright first. He’s often lauded for his dialogue, rich character development, and the performances he gets from actors. Taken as whole, these descriptions could be interpreted as being a kind way of saying that his film is insufficiently cinematic.

That would miss the point. Like his previous films, “You Can Count on Me” and “Margaret,” his script for “Manchester By the Sea” draws a great deal of its power by taking advantage of the way movie audiences absorb story.

Building the Mask

At the beginning of “Manchester,” we watch Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck), an apartment building handyman, react to his tenants — the indecisive man with a plumbing problem, the woman crushing on him as he unclogs her toilet bowl, a confrontational woman bizarrely accusing him of wanting to watch her take a shower. He’s comically expressionless as he goes about his work. »

Our 2017 Oscar Predictions: Watch the Academy Go Gaga for La La!

15 February 2017 2:24 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The movie-awards season is a mountain range with many peaks — perhaps too many — the inevitable valleys that sag between them and, finally, an Everest that inspires your second wind and an excited sprint: The Academy Awards. Here are my predictions, and my predilections.

The Academy Awards kicks off live on ABC on Sunday, Feb. 26, with a 7 p.m. Et preshow and 8:30 p.m. ceremony.

Best Picture:  La La Land

Fourteen nominations for a chamber musical that pays homage to classics of the genre (including some French ones) is arguably too much of a good thing. It’s as if »

2017 Oscars Predictions: Who Should Win, Who Will Win

15 February 2017 12:46 PM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The battle lines are drawn: It's La La Land, a musical fantasy about white lovers in Hollywood, versus Moonlight, a searing drama about black youth surviving on the streets of Miami. That contest is symptomatic of how serious Oscar is – or isn't – about diversity. After two years in which not a single black actor showed up among the acting nominees, this year's crop includes seven actors of color: Mahershala Ali, Viola Davis, Naomie Harris, Ruth Negga, Dev PatelOctavia Spencer and Denzel Washington.

Oscar Nominees Learned New Skills and Forgot Old Ones for Their Roles

15 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If great acting is all about slipping on a mask and completely inhabiting a character, it also often brings with it diverse challenges. Some of which entail quickly learning demanding new skills — or even unlearning old ones.

And while most actors are quick to say that they love a challenge, some of the preparation and training they’re asked to do for a specific part can be quite daunting, especially when it involves something as familiar and visceral as music and dance.

Pretty much everyone recognizes a good hoofer or pianist or vocalist when they see or hear them. Which is why Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, the stars of Oscar frontrunner “La La Land” — neither of whom are natural dancers, singers, or musicians — had to spend months learning to sing and dance for the musical. In Gosling’s case, he also had to learn to play jazz piano.

Michael Shannon Tells It Like It Is: How the Actor Played a ‘Broken Down Angel’ in ‘Nocturnal Animals’ — Consider This

14 February 2017 12:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eight years have passed since Michael Shannon’s first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor, picked up for his performance in 2008’s “Revolutionary Road,” and in that time Shannon has become one of the busiest actors in Hollywood, starring in more than 35 feature films.

Shannon recently earned his second Best Supporting Actor nod for Tom Ford’s 2016 dramatic thriller “Nocturnal Animals,” which sees the actor playing a chain-smoking detective named Bobby Andes who’s tasked with investigating a horrific crime.

Shannon’s Andes exists in a story within a story, as “Nocturnal Animals” revolves around a manuscript sent to a wealthy art gallery owner named Susan, played by Amy Adams. The movie shifts back and forth between the events of Susan’s actual life and a live-action depiction of the contents of the manuscript. »

Kenneth Lonergan: How the ‘Manchester by the Sea’ Filmmaker Honed His Skills as a Writer-Director

14 February 2017 8:20 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Amazon Studios’ and Roadside Attractions’ “Manchester By The Sea,” directed and written by Kenneth Lonergan and starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams.]

On the surface, it might seem surprising that one of the most recognized films of this awards season would come from a filmmaker who hadn’t shot a movie in 10 years. For anyone familiar with Kenneth Lonergan’s track record as a screenwriter, director and playwright, however, the accolades that “Manchester by the Sea” has been racking up are very much par for the course.

Long before the film earned Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, Lonergan had established himself in the theater world as an award-winning playwright. He was first recognized in 1982 at the age of 18 by the Young Playwrights Festival, for his play “The Rennings Children,” which centers on a sister who advocates for her brother’s release from a mental hospital.

Many of the themes in Lonergan’s plays are reexamined in his feature films, starting with his debut “You Can Count on Me, »

Baftas 2017: The winners’ speeches

12 February 2017 2:15 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Did the stars thank their agents or bash Trump?

Politics were high on the agenda in the speeches at the 2017 Bafta awards.

Acceptance speeches from the likes of Emma Stone and Manchester By The Sea’s Kenneth Lonergan addressed the state of Us politics.

There was also criticism of Brexit and the British government’s scrapping of the Dubs child refugee scheme, with Ken Loach in particular slamming the government’s “brutality”

Even host Stephen Fry made a few political jokes, saying of this year’s awards: “[Let’s] find out who the Russians have decided has won”.

Outstanding British Film

“Thank you to the academy for endorsing the truth of what this film says,” I, Daniel Blake’s Ken Loach said accepting the award. “The most vulnerable and poorest people are treated by government with brutality. Brutality that keeps out refugee children, and that’s disgraceful.

He added that films “can tell us about the world we live »
