David O. Russell’s Hot Streak

31 December 2013 3:23 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Mark Pinkert


If David O. Russell gets nominated for Best Director this year, he will have accomplished something that Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Ford Coppola and many other great directors have not–that is, to earn three Best Director nominations in the span of only four years. In fact, only eleven other directors have been on comparable hot streaks in Academy Award history, and only one of those streaks (by Clint Eastwood) has occurred after 1960. (See below for reference.)

This is not a comparison of overall quality or career prolificity (not many can bout with Scorsese, Allen, Hitchcock and Coppola in those categories), but merely a tribute to Russell’s ultra-concentrated efforts in the past four years and a recognition of the difficulty of this feat. It’s also a relevant because it might shed some light on previous Oscar trends and on what we »

August: Osage County | Review

Suffer the Children: Wells’ Adaptation Enjoyable Camp, Hinges on Grandiose Performances

When something sounds too good to be true, it often is, and while John Wells certainly wasn’t the most inspired choice to helm the adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize Winning play August: Osage County, its delirious cast lineup trumps all else. The film belongs to a bygone tradition of cinema adapted from famous stage plays, such as when Tennessee Williams and Edward Albee and Paul Zindel were all names on the tips of everyone’s tongues. While Letts has the potential to be as perversely humorous as any of them, this adaptation only shines in a handful of scenes, gummed up with disingenuous mortar on the way to each to one. Several cast members are in fine form, but most of them have the potential to distract rather than homogenize, and thus, Wells seems to have let »

Bette Davis Movies At Tiff: Film Series Showcases Legend's Work

14 November 2013 9:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At Tiff Bell Lightbox, this fall season of Hollywood classics is dedicated to the only actress to vie with Barbara Stanwyck as the greatest to emerge from the studio system: Bette Davis.

Curated by Tiff Cinematheque Senior Programmer James Quandt and running from November 15 - December 8, this delectable tribute features 15 films that trace Davis' four-decade evolution from glamour girl to grande dame to Gothic gargoyle.

Featuring a new digital restoration of the cult classic "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" (1962), as well as a host of other Davis favourites including the film that shot her to stardom, "Of Human Bondage" (1934), "Dangerous" (1935), which garnered Davis her first Best Actress Oscar win for her turn as a self-destructive, tempestuous Broadway actress, and the endlessly quotable "All About Eve" (1950), an Academy darling, that received a total of six Oscars that year.

Also included in the retrospective are Davis' trilogy of films from her frequent collaborator and favourite director, »

One of Earliest Surviving Oscar Nominees Turns 85 Today

16 August 2013 2:03 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ann Blyth today: Light songs and heavy drama on TCM Ann Blyth, a 1940s Universal leading lady best remembered for her Oscar-nominated performance as Joan Crawford’s cute-but-sociopathic teenage daughter in Warner Bros.Mildred Pierce, is Turner Classic Movies’ "Summer Under the Stars" star on Friday, August 16, 2013. Note: Today, Ann Blyth, one of the earliest surviving Oscar nominees in the acting categories, turns 85 years old. (See: “Ann Blyth Movies: TCM Schedule.”) (Photo: Ann Blyth ca. 1955.) First, the good news: Ann Blyth is a likable, talented actress and singer, and it’s great that TCM is dedicating a whole day to her movies. The bad news: As mentioned above, Ann Blyth was mostly (1944-1952) a Universal star; TCM is presenting only one of Blyth’s Universal movies, Brute Force (1947), which has been shown before. In other words, not a chance of finally having the opportunity to catch Ann Blyth in B »

Fontaine Shines in Classic Movies of the '40s

6 August 2013 3:50 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Joan Fontaine today: One of the best actresses of the studio era has her ‘Summer Under the Stars’ day Joan Fontaine, one of the few surviving stars of the 1930s, is Turner Classic Movies’ "Summer Under the Stars" star today, Tuesday, August 6, 2013. I’m posting this a little late in the game: TCM has already shown six Joan Fontaine movies, including the first-rate medieval adventure Ivanhoe and the curious marital drama The Bigamist, directed by and co-starring Ida Lupino, and written by Collier Young — husband of both Fontaine and Lupino (at different times). Anyhow, TCM has quite a few more Joan Fontaine movies in store. (Photo: Joan Fontaine publicity shot ca. 1950.) (TCM schedule: Joan Fontaine movies.) As far as I’m concerned, Joan Fontaine was one of the best actresses of the studio era. She didn’t star in nearly as many movies as sister Olivia de Havilland, perhaps because »

Check Out the 'Daughter' of Marilyn and Ava: Morphing Montage

31 July 2013 12:06 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Women in Film: Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, and dozens of movie actresses in curious morphing montage A few dozen top international female movie stars, most of them Hollywood celebrities, are seen in the Women in Film morphing montage below created by Philip Scott Johnson. The faces belong to actresses from the 1910s to the early 21st century. (Image: The ‘Daughter’ of Marilyn Monroe and Ava Gardner — who sort of looks like a cross between Eleanor Parker and Cyd Charisse as well — in the Women in Film morphing montage.) Just as interesting as trying to identify each of the famous faces is stopping the video while the morphing is going on, so you get Daughter of Marilyn Monroe and Ava Gardner, or Daughter of Audrey Hepburn and Dorothy Dandridge, or Daughter of Michelle Pfeiffer and Sigourney Weaver. Some of those Daughters are quite pretty; others look like they’ve just landed on this planet. »

Posterized: Oscar's Well Loved Losing Dozen

21 February 2013 4:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"And the Oscar Doesn't Go To..." The following dozen films are historically the biggest losers in Oscar history. All of them had 8 or more nominations and won zip on Oscar night. But, please to note, "loser" is a tongue-in-cheek title here. If you're well regarded enough to win nearly two handfuls of nominations as "best of the year" you're already a winner, even if you "lose".

How many have you seen?

The Little Foxes (1941) 9 nominations

Quo Vadis (1951) 8 nominations

Peyton Place (1957) 9 nominations 

The Nuns Story (59) - 8 noms

The Sand Pebbles (66) - 8 noms

The Turning Point (77) 11 noms *tied for most noms without any wins*

The Elephant Man (1980) 8 noms

Ragtime (1981) 8 noms

The Color Purple (1985) 11 noms *tied for most noms without any wins*

Remains Of The Day (1993) 8 noms

Gangs Of New York (2002) 10 noms

True Grit (2010) 10 noms

Trivia Puzzle: It happened most often in the 50s (3 films) and 80s (3 films) though I couldn't tell you why! »

How David O. Russell 'Grew Up' to Become the Ultimate Actors' Director

8 February 2013 2:36 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Has David O. Russell become one of the greatest actors' directors in Hollywood history? By leading his actors to three acting nominations for 2010's "The Fighter" and four more for 2012's "Silver Linings Playbook," Russell has put his name in a rare group. He's only the ninth director to score at least seven acting nominations for two consecutive movies; Elia Kazan, Mike Nichols, Stanley Kramer, Sidney Lumet, Herbert Ross, Warren Beatty and James L. Brooks equaled his feat, while William Wyler set the record with eight nominations between "The Little Foxes" in »
