Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

In case you missed it, the Oscars were this past weekend and Birdman was the big winner. The Academy’s choice to award Alejandro González Iñárritu's fever dream was a genuine shock, with Boyhood the running favourite for many months. Nonetheless, some things never change, and in that vein it's certainly a non-surprise the Academy also hardly noticed the most ambitious blockbuster of 2014: the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar. Indeed, I use the phrase "non-surprise", because how could it be a winner when it was only nominated for the bare minimum of five Oscars in technical categories that are reserved as consolation prizes?

This is by all means par for the course with a film that has »

Critics Debate the Best and Worst of the Oscars

23 February 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three Variety critics agree to disagree about Oscar winners and losers both onscreen and on the Dolby stage.

Peter Debruge: Last year, the Academy made a statement in giving the best picture award to “12 Years a Slave.” This time around, over the course of a spread-the-wealth evening, it was the winners’ turn to speak their minds, and they did so in force, using Hollywood’s prom as a podium to demand equal rights — for women (“Boyhood’s” only winner, Patricia Arquette), for African-Americans (Common and John Legend, accepting “Selma’s” only win), for gays (“The Imitation Game” writer Graham Moore, urging young Lgbt viewers to “stay weird, stay different” as he collected the film’s lone statue), for those with disabilities (both Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne turned the spotlight on talents who achieved while coping with Als), and for immigrants (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, offering a plea on behalf of »

Quiz: Best Picture Oscar winners

23 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

That’s it.  It’s over.  A winner has been crowned.  Birdman joins the illustrious ranks of Best Picture winners like The Godfather, On the Waterfront, Titanic, and uh, Crash.

With Aljeandro Gonzalez Inarritu's backstage drama taking home the top prize, and claiming additional awards for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography, only time will tell if it is remembered and revered the same way we now look back on The Sound of Music, Gone with the Wind, and Annie Hall. Or, in time, will leave us scratching our heads like the aforementioned Crash, A Beautiful Mind, or Shakespeare in Love whose repeat value and hindsight show that there may have been more deserving winners in those years:Brokeback Mountain, Capote, Saving Private Ryan, Life is Beautiful, Gosford Park and Moulin Rouge all lost out in their respective years.

The Academy Awards have now awarded 87 Best Picture winners. »

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »

The Surprising History of Oscar Acceptance Speech Thank-Yous

21 February 2015 2:05 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's an impressive honor to take home an Oscar. But it's also worth some bragging rights if you can nab an acceptance speech shout-out. Over the decades, winners have created a snowball effect when it comes to the lengthy list of thank-yous they squeeze in. Thanks to some archival digging by Hsbc Bank as part of its "Together, We Advance" campaign, we can pinpoint just who thanked their mom, dad, or even the viewers at home for the first time in Oscar history. Fun fact: Women are more likely to forget their significant others when in a thanking frenzy at the podium! »

Mo'Nique: I Was "Blackballed" After I Won My Oscar

20 February 2015 1:04 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Winning an Oscar isn’t the best after all — or at least according to Mo'Nique. The comedian-turned-Oscar winner told The Hollywood Reporter in honor of their issue celebrating the late Hattie McDaniel, who was the first African-American actor to win an Oscar for 1939’s Gone With the Wind, that she was “blackballed” by Hollywood after scoring her statue. “How did the Oscar change my life? What it did was that it gave me a new reality,” Mo’Nique, who won Best Supporting Actress for her performance as a [...] »

Oscar's First Black Winner Accepted Her Honor in a Segregated 'No Blacks' Hotel in L.A.

19 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Feb. 27 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. On a February afternoon in 1940, Hattie McDaniel — then one of the biggest African-American movie stars in the world — marched into the Culver City offices of producer David O. Selznick and placed a stack of Gone With the Wind reviews on his desk. The Civil War epic, released two months earlier, had become an instant cultural sensation, and McDaniel's portrayal of Mammy — the head slave at Tara, the film's fictional Southern plantation — was being singled out by both white and African-

Mo'Nique Claims She Was 'Blackballed' After Winning Oscar

19 February 2015 7:25 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

An Oscar win usually opens plenty of doors for actors and actresses in Hollywood. But one Academy Award honoree says that after her big win, she was essentially "blackballed" by the industry.

Best Supporting Actress winner Mo'Nique was on top of the world after snagging the statuette for 2009's "Precious." But according to the star, her decision not to campaign for the award -- typically meant to include attending parties, screenings, and other events in promotion of the film or other awards season contenders -- caused a major rift between her and Hollywood power players, and led to her losing out on multiple roles as a result.

In an extensive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Mo'Nique reflected on what the win meant to her personally -- she sees herself as a spiritual successor to "Gone with the Wind" star Hattie McDaniel, the first-ever African-American Academy Award winner -- and ultimately »

Game Of Thrones: should ASoIaF readers avoid the show?

18 February 2015 8:09 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the Game Of Thrones TV timeline set to overtake the novels, should A Song Of Ice And Fire readers avoid it to stay spoiler-free?

Forget the winds of winter, a wind of change is blowing. The balance of power between A Song Of Ice And Fire readers and Game Of Thrones-only viewers (referred to neatly in some quarters as the Sullied and the Unsullied) is shifting.

As the HBO show’s fifth season promises to depict events from the most recently released book, and with no imminent sign of the next tome (we’ve been told not to expect The Winds Of Winter until 2016), the TV timeline is due to overtake that of A Song Of Ice And Fire. The crown of smugness is being melted down. Book readers will no longer know when to brace themselves for bloody shocks, or when to smile knowingly while events unfurl on-screen. »

Louis Jourdan Has Died, Star of Gigi Was 93

15 February 2015 1:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hollywood has had many quintessential young Englishmen, but from the late 1940s through the early '60s, there was only one quintessential young Frenchman: Louis Jourdan. The star of the 1958 Best Picture Oscar winner, Gigi, whose film roles also included those in Madame Bovary, Three Coins in the Fountain, The Swan, The V.I.P.S and Can-Can, Jourdan died Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills, reports Variety. He was 93. As was told in a 1985 People profile, Jourdan - real name Gendre - and his two brothers grew up in the South of France, where their parents managed hotels in Cannes, Nice and Marseilles. »

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 »

Movies This Week: February 13-19, 2015

13 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

 

Quite a few special events are happening this weekend for Valentine's Day that don't include the supposedly kinky sex of Fifty Shades Of Grey. Tonight at the Marchesa, the Austin Film Society is having a special premiere screening of 5 to 7. The movie stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Berenice Marlohe (Skyfall). If you'd rather go for classic romances on Saturday, Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane is having a Gone With The Wind feast and Ritz is having a Casablanca feast. If you're a single women or gay man, you may prefer a Valentine's Day screening of Magic Mike at Alamo Lakeline. For that movie, the Alamo's typical "Don't Talk" rules are suspended and specialty cocktails are on the menu for a real free-for-all.

If you're completely twisted, then Alamo South Lamar has you covered too. They're teaming up with Chiller and Mondo for a Cannibal Holocaust screening on Saturday late night. »

Watch British Actors Reenact Iconic American Movie Scenes

The British are coming - or as anyone in Hollywood has long known, they've already arrived! Be it Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley or Eddie Redmayne, there has been a British invasion of American movies - and awards ceremonies - over recent years. That fact is humorously skewered in a cheeky short film for Vanity Fair by London-born photographer Jason Bell, whose work frequently appears in that magazine. (Vf's annual Hollywood issue will be available Feb. 5 in digital editions and on newsstands.)

Cinematographers pick the best-shot films of all time

4 February 2015 12:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stumbling across that list of best-edited films yesterday had me assuming that there might be other nuggets like that out there, and sure enough, there is American Cinematographer's poll of the American Society of Cinematographers membership for the best-shot films ever, which I do recall hearing about at the time. But they did things a little differently. Basically, in 1998, cinematographers were asked for their top picks in two eras: films from 1894-1949 (or the dawn of cinema through the classic era), and then 1950-1997, for a top 50 in each case. Then they followed up 10 years later with another poll focused on the films between 1998 and 2008. Unlike the editors' list, though, ties run absolutely rampant here and allow for way more than 50 films in each era to be cited. I'd love to see what these lists would look like combined, however. I imagine "Citizen Kane," which was on top of the 1894-1949 list, »

In One Month... Hit Me Baby One More Time

3 February 2015 10:42 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In exactly one month we'll spin on the mountaintop, run round gazebos, wear playclothes made of curtains, and hide from the Nazis together for the 50th anniversary of The Sound Of Music. It began its record breaking run in March of 1965. If you adjust for inflation it's the third biggest hit of all time after Gone With the Wind and Star Wars. Fine company to be in.

Have you ever thought about what your favorite shot from it is? Or which shot best represents the movie as a whole? You know how to take a screen cap. You know where this is going right? We'll start with The Family Von Trapp but later we'll get colorful with Dick Tracy, funky over Magic Mike, and creepy via Repulsion, and lots more ... Dates Tba.

Break out the bubbly because "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", a ton of fun all spring and summer, »

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Kenya Moore, Brandi Glanville Fired in Explosive Boardroom Session

At one time she may have been "Gone With the Wind Fabulous," but now Kenya Moore's just gone. Donald Trump finally fired the former Miss USA on The Celebrity Apprentice's two-hour episode Feb. 2, but not before Moore and Vivica A.

Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh love letters to be made public

2 February 2015 9:41 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Love letters between Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh are being made public for the first time.

Some 200 previously unpublished letters between the pair will be revealed by the Victoria and Albert museum archives, dating back to the 1930s.

The couple first got together in 1936 after playing lovers in Fire Over England, but had to keep their relationship a secret as they were still married at the time.

"I woke up absolutely raging with desire for you my love... Oh dear God how I did want you. Perhaps you were stroking your darling self," Olivier said in one passionate letter to Leigh.

Another revealing letter reads: "I am sitting naked with just my parts wrapped in your panties. My longing for you is so intense."

Other letters include advice from Olivier to Leigh on her role in Gone with the Wind, saying: "You have got to be damn smart to make »
