Alejandro G. Inarritu wins DGA Award for The Revenant, full list of winners here

7 February 2016 10:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the second year in a row (and the first time they’ve ever handed out back-to-back awards), the Directors Guild of America has honoured Alejandro G. Inarritu with the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with Inarittu collecting Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for The Revenant.

Inarritu won the DGA Award last year for Birdman, and went on to collect the Best Director award at the Oscars. Should he repeat the feat this year with The Revenant, he’d become only the third director in history to win back-to-back Best Director Academy Awards after John Ford and Joseph Mankiewicz.

And, should The Revenant also win Best Picture, it would be the first time a director has ever won back-to-back Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

Here’s the full list of winners from last night:

Nominations For The 68th Annual Writers Guild Of America Awards

6 January 2016 10:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Writers Guild of America has just announced the nominations for their annual awards for Best Screenplays (by writers who are guild signatories). That’s right, before you get nervous thinking that your favorite may have been left off the list, you must remember that the WGA is the group that is not all-inclusive and leaves out several of the top contenders each year due to them not being part of the guild or not following their very specific rules. For this reason, you won’t see Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Ex Machina in the Original Screenplay category or Room, Brooklyn, or Anomalisa in the Adapted screenplay category.

Taking a look at what’s left over for the nominations, we find many that were expected to make a showing, including Spotlight and Bridge of Spies for Original Screenplay, though they apparently had to sink to really low depths »

Notebook's 8th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2015

4 January 2016 6:41 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2015?Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2015—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2015 to create a unique double feature.All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2015 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch »

‘Star Wars,’ ‘Ant-Man,’ ‘Better Call Saul’ Among Ace Eddie Awards Nominees

4 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The American Cinema Editors nominated “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for best film editing of a dramatic feature Monday. It is the first industry awards group to recognize J.J. Abrams’ record-breaking sequel.

Prior to the film’s world premiere in mid-December, Disney opted out of screening it for groups with early voting deadlines, like the Screen Actors Guild. Ace balloting ran from Dec. 4 through Dec. 29, wrapping up just as the Lucasfilm blockbuster crossed the $600 million mark at the domestic box office in record time.

Raking in another $88 million over the weekend, “The Force Awakens” is on course to eclipse “Avatar’s” all-time mark by the end of Tuesday.

Also nominated in the dramatic category was “The Martian,” contradictory to the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.’s controversial comedy classification earlier this season.

The two films were joined by “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Revenant” and “Sicario.”
