Marc Lahore and James Northcote on sci-fi thriller The Open

A director sinking in quicksand and actors in tears: is this the perfect example the old adage ‘suffering for your art? The first science fiction film since Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey to be shot amongst Scotland’s unforgiving Outer Hebrides brings considerable pain for the cast and crew, but a stunning vista and a neuron-tickling

How to be SAG Snubbed Even When You're Nominated

As is our annual tradition we like to peruse the credits of the SAG Ensemble nods to see who got left out despite their film's nomination. The Film Experience started this kind of analysis ten years ago when The Aviator had some really dumb exclusions and inclusions but lots of other sites now cover the injustice. We never get credit for starting this line of Norma Rae righteous anger but, that said, at least a lot of people have it now.

Did SAG think her face looked like she'd licked a homelessman's ass?

If you aren't familiar SAG uses a system whereby only actors with solitary title cards are official nominees for the Cast category. This means if you are famous in a bit part and have a good agent you are more likely to be an official nominee than the unknown who delivered a better performance in possibly a

First Images Of Benedict Cumberbatch In WWII Drama The Imitation Game

Few things are as certain to make Oscar voters prick up their ears as films which tell true tales of wartime heroism. So, this fall, one movie that almost everyone agrees will be a force to be reckoned with on the awards circuit is The Imitation Game, which focuses on British mathematician Alan Turing, who worked to unravel Nazi codes during World War II and was later prosecuted for the then-illegal act of homosexuality. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Turing, and everything that’s emerged about the film thus far paints it as a must-see. Now, our first look at the Sherlock actor in the title role has arrived.

The two images come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, which recently spoke with Cumberbatch about the film. Of Turing, the actor said, “He’s an exceptional man,” adding that, “I hope this film does justice to this unsung hero.”

It’s true that

"Gravity" Dominates BAFTA Nominations

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the nominations for the British Academy Film Awards and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" led the pack with 11 nominations including Best Film, British Film (who knew "Gravity" was a British movie?), Director for Cuaron, Screenplay for Cuaron and his son Jonas, and Actress for Sandra Bullock.

The biggest snub in my humble opinion was "Dallas Buyers Club" which appeared nowhere on the nominations list. Apparently, the British Academy did not deem Matthew McConaughey or Jared Leto award-worthy!

The BAFTA Awards will take place on Feb. 16 at the Royal Opera house in London. Will "Gravity" emerge as the victorious movie that night? And by the way, "Gravity" was my No. 1 favorite film of 2013!

BAFTA And The American Society Of Cinematographers Announce Their Nominations

Early this morning saw the announcement of the nominations for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards for 2013. For the most part, they look like all of the other guild nominations we’ve seen over the past month or so (including all five director nominees who were just nominated for the DGA’s top award), but there are a few interesting differences to take note of.

First off, Philomena has a much stronger presence here, but given that it is a British film, it’s hardly surprising. You may also notice a lot of love for Behind the Candelabra, a film that was only shown on TV in the States, making it ineligible for theatrical awards.

However, aside from that, just about all the major players are here. Gravity leads the pack with 11 nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, and Best Actress. 12 Years a

Following close behind, “American Hustle” and “12 Years A Slave” each have 10 chances at glory, and “Captain Phillips” will compete in nine categories.

Meanwhile, Michael Douglas and Matt Damon's flamboyant flick “Behind the Candelabra” is tied with Tom Hanks’ “Saving Mr. Banks,” each receiving five mentions.

And of course, everyone has been talking about the previously announced hopefuls for the fan-voted Ee Rising Star Award- Dane DeHaan, George McKay, Will Poulter, Lea Seydoux, and Lupita Nyong’o.
