Watch: 103-Minute Vintage Documentary 'All About Mankiewicz' About The Legendary Director/Writer/Producer

19 March 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Just as babies must crawl before they walk, the proper education for cinephiles must begin with canonical classics like the Bette Davis-starring “All About Eve.” This year marks that film's 65th anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than with a French TV special on the film’s director Joseph L. Mankiewicz? Running 103 minutes and released in 1983, the special covers Makiewicz’s entire filmography, spanning 1946’s “Dragonwyck” to 1973’s “Sleuth.” It’s rare to get a director to expound on the entirety of their career at this length, so take this opportunity to watch a master talk about his craft. And with Mankiewicz responsible for classic films such as "Guys And Dolls," "Suddenly, Last Summer" and more infamously worked on the fiasco "Cleopatra," this is definitely a must watch. Thanks to the time-traveling powers of the internet, you can now see the French TV documentary “All About Makiewicz” below. »

Thn Interview: ‘Starry Eyes’ Directors Dennis Widmyer & Kevin Kolsch

11 March 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was last August that I first got to view Starry Eyes and since that early Saturday screening at Frightfest I have been completely smitten. If you look closely at the packaging on the UK DVD, which is released on the 16th March you might spy some familiar stars and quotes, a proud moment in any writer’s life but it is even more special when it is a movie that truly stole your heart. Needless to say that when an opportunity to interview co-directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, I jumped at the chance.

Widmyer and Kolsch have been working together for a number of years, producing short film Identical Dead Sisters and feature Absence before going onto make Starry Eyes with the help of Kickstarter funders. Starry Eyes chronicles a young and determined actress, Sarah Walker (Alex Essoe) as she goes to the darkest of lengths to achieve her Hollywood dreams. »

Now, a little Oscar 2015 trivia. If you know a bit about the history of the Academy Awards, you'll have noticed several little curiosities about this year's nominations. For instance, there are quite a few first-time nominees in the acting and directing categories. In fact, nine of the nominated actors and three of the nominated directors are Oscar newcomers. Here's the list in the acting categories: Eddie Redmayne. Michael Keaton. Steve Carell. Benedict Cumberbatch. Felicity Jones. Rosamund Pike. J.K. Simmons. Emma Stone. Patricia Arquette. The three directors are: Morten Tyldum. Richard Linklater. Wes Anderson. Oscar 2015 comebacks Oscar 2015 also marks the Academy Awards' "comeback" of several performers and directors last nominated years ago. Marion Cotillard and Reese Witherspoon won Best Actress Oscars for, respectively, Olivier Dahan »

Oscars 2015: Which Film Deserves to Win Best Picture?

20 February 2015 3:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: We don’t always agree, Guy (no two critics ever should), but it’s safe to say we’ve been more simpatico than usual over the course of this very long and happily almost-over awards season. I think we would both argue, for example, that “Foxcatcher” was ridiculously worthy of an Oscar nomination for best picture, and that its failure to nab one seems all the more inexplicable given that Bennett Miller managed to crack the much more competitive directing race. Likewise, I don’t know anyone else who had almost precisely the same reaction and counter-reaction to “Birdman” as I did — an initial thrill that almost completely fell apart on second viewing.

Clearly the industry feels otherwise, if “Birdman’s” presumed Oscar-frontrunner status is to be believed — which I fear it is, even as some of us are still clinging desperately to the hope that “Boyhood” will prevail. »

Can you ace HitFix's brutal 21-question Oscars quiz?

19 February 2015 4:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Oscars are less than 96 hours away, so you only have a limited amount of time to brag about your insane knowledge of Academy Awards history. Ready for a brutal 21-question foray into Oscar's grisly past? Let's roll. (We give you the questions on the first page. Jot down your responses, then check the answers, along with the accompanying questions, on the next page. The videos embedded here aren't related to the questions. They're just fun!) 1. What ‘90s Best Actor winner gave the shortest onscreen performance ever nominated (and therefore awarded) in that category? This is measured by total minutes and seconds spent onscreen. 2. The first (and so far only) black female nominee in the Best Original Screenplay category was a co-writer of what biopic released in the 1970s? 3. From 1937 to 1945, the Academy guaranteed nominations in one particular category to any studio that submitted a qualifiable entry. What was the category? »

StreamFix: 5 Amazing 'Best Supporting Actor' Winners to Watch Now

9 February 2015 3:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that these damn Grammys are out of the way, we can focus on the only meaningless award that matters: the Oscar. The Best Supporting Actor category has a varied and interesting past, and if you check out Netflix right now, you can drink in these legendary performances that picked up a trophy. George Sanders in "All About Eve" This is my personal pick for the best win in the Supporting Actor category. George Sanders plays the deadly droll Addison DeWitt, a theater critic whose snipes make or break thespian careers. He's enchanted (but not fooled) by the manipulative sociopath Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter), who sets out to supplant veteran actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis) as the reigning doyenne of the New York stage. Though Sanders is hilarious throughout "All About Eve," he rather poetically articulates the pleasure of theater (and, in doing so, sums up "Birdman") during his finest »

‘Birdman’ Soars As PGA Sets A New Course For Wide Open Best Picture Oscar Race

25 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

During the cocktail reception before Saturday night’s Producers Guild Awards began I ran into Oscar-nominated Screenwriter (and Director) Dan Gilroy and wife Rene Russo, there supporting one of the ten PGA Darryl F. Zanuck Best Picture nominees, Nightcrawler. Russo, admittedly not a staple at this type of awards-season banquet, asked me if they were going to serve food at this event. “Yes,” I replied, “it’s a dinner.” “So what do you think will win, Boyhood or Birdman?” she wondered. That was an interesting and somewhat surprising way to distill what has been thought to be a wide open race to Oscar until Boyhood basically cleaned up on the critics circuit, capping its run with Golden Globe and  Critics Choice Movie Award wins, while Birdman scored for Michael Keaton but actually lost to Fox Searchlight stablemate The Grand Budapest Hotel in both respective comedy categories. But now with the »

The Definitive Best Picture Losers

1 January 2015 12:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30. Apollo 13 (1995)

Lost to: Braveheart

In 1995, director Ron Howard brought a true life story of hope in the face of peril and started sweeping up awards. He won the Directors Guild Award. He won the Producers Guild Award. He won the Screen Actors Guild Ensemble Award. He lost the Golden Globe Drama to “Sense and Sensibility,” though he was nominated. Nothing could beat “Apollo 13.” Oscar night came and the Academy decided to hand the award to Mel Gibson’s historical epic about William Wallace, whose only precursor award was a surprise directing win at the Golden Globes. I’m not saying “Apollo 13″ is a greater film than “Braveheart.” It’s just proof that even the mighty may fall if a charismatic actor/director is at the helm.

29. L.A. Confidential (1997)

Lost to: Titanic

Curtis Hanson’s neo noir wasn’t the only quality loser from 1997 (“Good Will Hunting, »
