Specialty Film Market Woes Make Oscars a Rough Game

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The number of prestige pics produced by the majors has declined. Traditional adult audiences flock to cable. Ancillary revenue streams remain uncertain. All of which means that the always-challenging Oscar film market is more challenging than ever.

When questioned by Variety’s co-editor-in-chief Claudia Eller about the future of low-cost, prestige dramas like “Million Dollar Arm” on Dec. 10 at the Variety’s annual Dealmakers Breakfast, Disney chief Bob Iger said, “You can quickly lose $40 million on a $10 million film these days.” That’s a potent explanation for Sony Pictures Classics co-prexy Tom Bernard’s observation to Variety’s Steven Gaydos at the Whistler Summit’s Dec. 5 View From the Top panel: “The studios do not want to be in the Oscar business.”

The majors’ divestment in specialty films, dramatically evidenced by the shuttering of divisions like Warner Independent and Picturehouse, can be seen in subtler ways this season. After closing »

Obama Calls Sony Hack ‘Cyber Vandalism,’ Not Act of War

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

President Barack Obama told CNN that North Korea’s hack attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment is an act of “cyber-vandalism,” not an act of war.

Despite the tens of millions of dollars in damage to the studio’s business operations and threats of violence, the president said he wished that Sony had not canceled the Christmas release of “The Interview.”

“If we set a precedent in which a dictator in another country can disrupt through cyber, a company’s distribution chain or its products, and as a consequence we start censoring ourselves, that’s a problem,” Obama said in an interview with CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday’s “State of the Union.”

North Korea was incensed that “The Interview” depicts a successful assassination attempt on its leader Kim Jong-un. In retaliation, it reportedly leaked internal Sony emails, salary details and film budgets, creating a firestorm of media coverage. In a message this week, »

Saturday Night Live Recap: North Korea Let Amy Adams Host The Show Again

2 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I've always known that one day President Barack Obama would hold a press conference expressing support for Seth Rogen, and that day has come. (Believe me, I'm now looking over everything else I predicted about the future during Freaks and Geeks' initial run, and yeah, Limp Bizkit may soon wear out its welcome.) In the meantime, it seems that everyone even tangentially involved in the entertainment industry has been rattled by Sony's hacking scandal and every juicy tidbit it has revealed — not to mention the disappearing act the company pulled on Rogen's film, The Interview. It's a weird time to be in show business, and the current trauma definitely loomed large over this entire episode of SNL. However, despite some clear fatigue, the team managed to pull together a Christmas episode safe enough to watch with one's parents, but also capable of drawing Kim Jong-un's ire.A Message From Dr. »

Tom Brokaw Says His Cancer Is in Remission

Tom Brokaw shared some good news with his NBC colleagues on Sunday: His cancer is in remission.

“A year ago my future was more uncertain than I cared to acknowledge but now I face the New Year with very encouraging news,” he wrote in a note addressed to his “NBC Family.” “The cancer is in remission, and I will shortly go on a drug maintenance regimen to keep it there.”

The 74-year-old was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer that attacks blood cells in the bone marrow, last August. The note goes on to say how fortunate Brokaw considers himself to be, saying his challenges are “footnotes” compared to the ones of the men fighting in the Battle of the Bulge.

Brokaw, who anchored “NBC Nightly News” from 1982 to 2004, was a presidential delegate to the 70th anniversary of the battle, and remembered the obstacles the military men went through in the note. »

Although there were three huge wide releases in theaters this weekend, the third and final Hobbit beat them all by a landslide.

Friends Countdown: Phoebe Buffay Is Friends’ Worst Liar

3 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Halfway through the first season of Friends, Phoebe shares with Rachel three cardinal facts about herself: “One,” she starts, “my friends are the most important thing in my life. Two, I never lie, and three, I make the best oatmeal raisin cookies in the world.” Three bold statements, but one totally boldfaced lie. Because over ten seasons of Friends, Phoebe lies and lies and lies and lies — both straight out and she lies by omission. Does anyone lie to their BFFs as much as Phoebe does? Here is our list of offenses. Phoebe is the worst passive-aggressive roommate. In "The One With the Flashbacks" it's revealed that while Phoebe and Monica were living together, Monica became such a difficult roommate that Phoebe was forced to move out on the down low — i.e., she left at night and returned in the morning, moving out her furniture piece by piece »

Could 'Song of the Sea' be another Oscars animation surprise for Tomm Moore & Gkids?

3 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Irish animated film "Song of the Sea" opened on December 19 to strong reviews – as of this writing, 77 on MetaCritic and 95% freshness on Rotten Tomatoes. Can it surprise in the Oscar race for Best Animated Feature despite flying under the radar? It wouldn't be the first time director Tomm Moore ambushed the Oscars. -Break- Could artsy 'Tale of the Princess Kaguya' take down juggernaut 'Lego Movie' at Oscars? "Song" is reminiscent of Hayao Miyazaki films like "Ponyo" and the Oscar-winning "Spirited Away" in its child's-eye-view of a fearsome and visually resplendent fantasy world, in this case drawn from real Celtic myths. And like the most recent animated Oscar champs, "Frozen" (2013) and "Brave" (2012), it has the strong emotional hook of a story of familial love: a young boy, grieving the loss of his mother, must find his way home with his enchanted sister. So the film a »
