If You Love This Year's Oscar Winners, Watch These Four Similar Nominees Next

23 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's only one rule as far as the kinds of performance that get nominated for Oscars go: Someone has already been nominated for a role just like it. While it was thrilling to watch Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Patricia Arquette, and Jk Simmons pick up expected Oscars for their work this year, it cannot be denied that many of their roles have obvious Oscar forebears. Here are four performances you should watch next if you loved "Still Alice," "The Theory of Everything," "Boyhood," and "Whiplash."  If you liked Julianne Moore in "Still Alice," watch Bette Davis in "Dark Victory" Julianne Moore copes with the inevitability of a devastating condition in "Still Alice," and her decline is both grim and undeniably cinematic. Her emotional and physical transformations serve as the movie's entire plot, and her family's shifting response to her progressing Alzheimer's is just as compelling. In Oscar history, we actually »

From Kubrick to Marilyn Monroe, Oscar Has a Stellar List of Shut-Outs

13 February 2015 4:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are 195 individuals nominated for Oscar this year. And when the winners are named Feb. 22, they will become part of film history, joining such greats as Billy Wilder, Ingrid Bergman, Ben Hecht and Walt Disney.

But 80% of the contenders will go home empty-handed. However, there is good news: They are in good company as well.

Here is a sampling of nominees that didn’t win: “Citizen Kane,” “Chinatown” and “Star Wars”; directors Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks, Stanley Kubrick and Ingmar Bergman; writers Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Dashiell Hammett, John Steinbeck, Graham Greene, Harold Pinter and David Mamet; actors Gloria Swanson in “Sunset Blvd.”; Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”; and Peter O’Toole in “Lawrence of Arabia.”

They managed to do Ok, though.

It’s hard to say why they didn’t win. Sometimes tastes change. Sometimes there’s too much competition in one year. Frank Capra’s 1939 “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington »

Saville shoots fast on comedy-drama

10 February 2015 1:20 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

DoP Mark Wareham with Matthew Saville with Anthony Lapaglia.

.

On paper the shooting schedule sounded logistically daunting: 20 days for a feature film starring Anthony Lapaglia, Justine Clarke, Julia Blake and John Clarke.

As it turned out, filming comedic drama A Month of Sundays in Adelaide proved relatively easy, much to the surprise of writer-director Matthew Saville.

.Thanks to the cast, crew and logistic simplicity of shooting in Adelaide, it all went very smoothly,. Saville tells If during a break from the editing suite.

Produced by Madman Production Company.s Nick Batzias and Kirsty Stark, the film stars Lapaglia as Frank Mollard, a real estate agent whose life takes an unexpected turn when he receives a call from his dead mother, sending him on a journey of redemption.

Justine Clarke plays Frank.s estranged wife, with John Clarke as his boss/friend and Blake as the woman at the heart of a life-changing new relationship. »

Robert Redford: 'The Great Gatsby' and 'The Way We Were' tonight on Turner Classic Movies Turner Classic Movies' Star of the Month Robert Redford returns this evening with three more films: two Sydney Pollack-directed efforts, Out of Africa and The Way We Were, and Jack Clayton's film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby. (See TCM's Robert Redford film schedule below. See also: "On TCM: Robert Redford Movies.") 'The Great Gatsby': Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby Released by Paramount Pictures, the 1974 film version of The Great Gatsby had prestige oozing from just about every cinematic pore. The film was based on what some consider the greatest American novel ever written. Francis Ford Coppola, whose directing credits included the blockbuster The Godfather, and who, that same year, was responsible for both The Godfather Part II and The Conversation, penned the adaptation.

'Out of Africa' Out of Africa (1985) is an unusual Robert Redford star vehicle in that the film's actual lead isn't Redford, but Meryl Streep -- at the time seen as sort of a Bette Davis-Alec Guinness mix: like Davis, Streep received a whole bunch of Academy Award nominations within the span of a few years: from 1978-1985, she was shortlisted for no less than six movies.* Like Guinness, Streep could transform »

Gotham, Ep. 1.12, “What The Little Bird Told Him” is charged with shocks & chilling development

19 January 2015 6:31 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 12: ‘What The Little Bird Told Him’

Written by Ben Edlund

Directed by Eagle Egilsson

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

In this week’s Gotham, Gordon returns to the Gotham City Police Department to regain his Detective rank, but in order to do that, he has to prove himself to Commissioner Loeb by bringing in the Arkham Asylum inmate that escaped in “Rogues’ Gallery” under his watch. This episode shows Gordon revitalized and more focused, with the understanding that he needs to be at the Gcpd and nowhere else; it’s where he wants to be, and where he can do the most good. We have seen Gordon be all gung ho before, as in “Penguins Umbrella”, but this time he’s taking charge and asserting himself, whereas before, he was acting reckless, with unrealistic goals.

While Gordon is busy reclaiming his position at the Gcpd, »
