With folks all over unwrapping presents today and the year just about over, I wanted to commemorate the time by looking at the gifts that the world of cinema bestowed on us in 2014. What do I mean when I say that? Well, in my eyes, it can mean a film, a filmmaker, or a performer who we became thankful for/even more thankful for during the past 12 months. I tried to be as eclectic as possible and think broadly, but of course this is essentially who and what I loved during the year too. It’s not my top ten list, but it might give you some idea of what mine will look like. Also, I did try and tie it into the Oscar race, of course. How could I not? Anyway, enjoy! Here now are ten gifts that cinema gave us in 2014: 1. Boyhood – Almost without exception, everyone can »

Michael Sam had a hell of a career playing college football at the University of Missouri. Seemingly headed for the pro-football ranks, Sam came out publicly as gay — a decision he would question as other players were selected during the 2014 NFL Draft for nearly a full three days before his own name was called.

THR has released an official list of the most viewed trailers of 2014. And you may be surprised to see which movie came in first. While a lot of your are probably guessing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was actually Fifty Shades of Grey that took top honors.

The Golden Globe and SAG nominations are in, and there is one more award show announcing its noms before the Oscars say who's up in January: the Critics' Choice Awards. There are some new names within the Critics' Choice, generally because they also award in the comedy and action categories, but there are also some titles in the main categories not previously nominated, like Unbroken. The Critics' Choice Awards air Jan. 15, so check out the full list here. Best Picture Birdman Boyhood Gone Girl The Grand Budapest Hotel The Imitation Game Nightcrawler Selma The Theory of Everything Unbroken Whiplash Best Actor Michael Keaton, Birdman Ralph Fiennes, The Grand Budapest Hotel Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game Jake Gyllenhaal, Nightcrawler David Oyelowo, Selma Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything Best Actress Jennifer Aniston, Cake Felicity Jones, The Theory of Everything Julianne Moore, Still Alice Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl Reese Witherspoon, Wild Marion Cotillard, »
Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" tops the nominations for the 20th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards brought to you by the Broadcast Film Critics Association of which I'm a proud voting member! Our deadline to vote for the nomination round was last Friday and I'm happy to say that most of my favorites made it to the final ballot!
"Birdman," which received 13 nods is now competing with "Boyhood," "Gone Girl," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Nightcrawler," "Selma," "The Theory of Everything," "Unbroken," and "Whiplash" for the Best Picture of the Year!
The winners for the Critics' Choice Movie Awards will be revealed live on A&E from the Hollywood Palladium on January 15th at 9pm Et/ 6pm Pt. Coincidentally, this is the same day the Academy Award nominations will be announced. Legendary Super Bowl Champion Michael Strahan will serve as the show.s host.
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, »

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. »

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, »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association's (Bfca*) annual announcement of nominees is particularly informative for one key reason: it's a broad assessment of the year from a vast voting body. The only two such events prior to the end of the year tend to be this and the Screen Actors Guild's nominations announcement, each setting the early stage in terms of what seems to be appealing across a wide spectrum. Other guilds then add to that equation in January. So where did the Bfca's chips end up this season? For starters, in what has become a trend for critics groups that provide a nominations stage, Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" led overall with 13 mentions. And in what has also become a trend with critical precursors, Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" (11) and Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" (8) were right up there, too, making starkly clear what the critical darlings are this season. »
