Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor Nearly 3,000 Miles Apart During Emmys, Still Give Us #RelationshipGoals

19 September 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor didn't attend the Emmys together - they weren't even on the same coast during the broadcast. But, somehow, they still managed to be the cutest couple of the evening. Taylor was in New York City on Emmy night, spending her day in rehearsals for the upcoming Broadway revival of The Front Page, which opens on Tuesday. Paulson didn't attend the night stag - instead, she brought the real-life Marcia Clark, who Paulson was nominated (and won) for portraying in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Though the lovebirds were physically separated for the evening, »

Sarah Paulson walked the red carpet at the 2016 Emmy Awards on Sunday with a very special guest. The 41-year-old actress brought O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark, 63, with her on the red carpet, then sat beside her at the awards show. Paulson portrayed Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story - and received a nomination for playing her in the outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie category. Host Jimmy Kimmel joked about the pairing during his opening monologue as cameras panned to the duo. "I'd also like to acknowledge the winner of tonight's plus-one contest - Sarah Paulson, »

The Seven Greatest Director/Actor Combos

4 September 2016 5:47 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Some actors and directors go together like spaghetti and meatballs. They just gel together in a rare way that makes their collaborations special. Here is a list of the seven best parings of director and actor in film history.

 

7: Tim Burton & Johnny Depp:

 Edward Scissorhands; Ed Wood; Sleepy Hollow; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; Corpse Bride; Sweeney Todd; Alice in Wonderland; Dark Shadows

 Of all the parings on this list, these two make the oddest films. (In a good way.) Tim Burton is one of the most visually imaginative filmmakers of his generation and Johnny Depp was once the polymorphous master of playing a wide variety of eccentric characters. They were a natural combo. Depp made most of his best films with Burton, before his current ‘Jack Sparrow’ period began. The duo had the knack for telling stories about misfits and freaks, yet making them seem sympathetic and likable. »

The Top Ten Funny Ladies of the Movies

7 August 2016 10:29 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The recent box office success of The Boss firmly establishes Melissa McCarthy as the current queen of movie comedies (Amy Schumer could be a new contender after an impressive debut last Summer with Trainwreck), but let us think back about those other funny ladies of filmdom. So while we’re enjoying the female reboot/re-imagining of Ghostbusters and those Bad Moms, here’s a top ten list that will hopefully inspire lots of laughter and cause you to search out some classic comedies. It’s tough to narrow them down to ten, but we’ll do our best, beginning with… 10. Eve Arden The droll Ms. Arden represents the comic sidekicks who will attempt to puncture the pomposity of the leading ladies with a well-placed wisecrack (see also the great Thelma Ritter in Rear Window). Her career began in the early 1930’s with great bit roles in Stage Door and Dancing Lady. »

It’s official, the best Oscar year ever is… – watch Jump Cut #4

28 February 2016 3:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week’s Jump Cut is all about determining the best year ever in cinema.

“But how can you figure that out?!” you shout at whatever device you’re reading this on. “Film is too subjective an art form for you to make overarching statements like that!”

That’s a very good point, but you’re overlooking two things: 1) the Oscar best picture nominations, and 2) film ratings on the Internet Movie Database. Both obviously have degrees of subjectivity, but that’s levelled off somewhat with each institution’s sheer number of voters or raters.

So, to work out what year was the best ever for cinema, we’ve taken all the films nominated for each year’s Best Picture Oscar, and then worked out their average IMDb rating. I’ll just point out that these were the ratings as of the week of the 88th Academy Awards on 22nd February »

The Strange Case Of Billy Wilder’S Buddy Buddy

20 February 2016 1:40 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Billy Wilder’s Buddy Buddy (1981) might be one of the most obvious go-to examples in the annals of conventional wisdom when it comes to the cinephile’s parlor game of pointing out a great director’s greatest foible. Upon release the movie was summarily dismissed by critics and ignored by audiences—it managed a paltry $7 million domestically, three million less than its production budget.

Roger Ebert, in his review, called Buddy Buddy “a comedy without laughs,” one apparently so vile that it could inspire not only audience indifference but also one of the revered reviewer’s laziest pieces of criticism. Ebert’s short piece quickly degenerates into name-calling-- “This movie is appalling” is the first sentence of the review, and the movie’s name goes unmentioned until the second paragraph—sans much in the way of actual insight. And unfortunately the critic’s disdain ends up functioning as a substitute »

Best Picture and Better Picture: Movies That Should Have Won the Oscar but Didn’t

19 February 2016 3:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 The best picture doesn’t always win Best Picture. Sometimes the best film of the year gets robbed. Cinelinx looks at the movies which should have won Best Picture but didn’t.

Whenever the Best Picture winner is announced at the Oscars, sometimes we say, “Yeah, that deserved to win,” but then again, sometimes we say, “Huh? Are they kidding me?!” There are a lot of backstage politics and extenuating factors in Hollywood that can determine which film wins the big trophy. The worthiest film doesn’t always take the statue home. Going back over the 88-year history of the Academy Awards, we look at which films didn’t really deserve to win and the ones which rightfully should have won.

The Best Pictures and the Better Pictures:

What should have won: Sunrise (Sunrise was given a special award for Artistic Quality of Production, but it »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 20-11

9 January 2016 4:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.

Tom Hanks had been the leading man in romantic comedies before (e.g. Splash). But the same year he took home his first Oscar (Philadelphia), he also starred opposite Meg Ryan in this »
