Lord Puttnam issues Brexit warning

20 January 2017 3:17 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Respected producer calls for government to guarantee “the right to stay” for EU nationals working in VFX and animation sectors.

Veteran film producer David Puttnam (Chariots Of Fire, Midnight Express) has delivered a warning to the House of Lords about the future of the UK’s creative industries once the country exits the European Union.

Speaking in the House’s morning debate yesterday (Jan 19), Puttnam, president of the Film Distributors’ Association (Fda), said that “literally thousands of jobs are at stake here”.

“Media companies based here [should] not face new hurdles or feel compelled to move their operations to other European countries,” he said.

In his speech, Puttnam sought to highlight ways in which the damage dealt to the UK’s creative economy by leaving the EU single market could be minimised.

Referring to the UK’s burgeoning visual effects and animation business – which he noted now employs in excess of 25,000 people and has an annual turnover of £2.25bn »

Golden Globes 2017 Review: Stars Didn’t Seem in the Mood to Shine

9 January 2017 10:17 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

The Golden Globes prides itself on being a rollicking bash and unpredictable live TV. Snarky, bleeped jokes, boozed celebs saying damnedest things, and bizarre picks in the TV categories like Mozart in the Jungle — the Drunk History version of the Oscars.

Maybe motivated by backlash to frequent emcee Ricky Gervais, maybe nudged by network partner NBC or maybe responding to our divided, touchy political moment, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, in their infinitely curious wisdom, decided to play it safe and sane this year, tapping people-pleasing late night party clown »

Surprises, delights, and highlights from the 2017 Golden Globe AwardsSurprises, delights, and highlights from the 2017 Golden Globe AwardsAdriana Floridia1/9/2017 10:58:00 Am

The Golden Globe Awards are known as Hollywood's biggest party.

While it is of course an honour to win a Golden Globe, they have very little impact on the Oscars, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association who votes on the awards are often known to make some interesting decisions when giving out their trophies. It's also a total Hollywood love-fest, where stars of TV and movies are getting drunk and hanging out, and we wish more than anything that we could be there. But since our invite was lost in the mail, we could at least watch from afar and enjoy everything that makes this an unforgettable night! We're breaking down the highlights and surprises from the event--from the actual awards, to the ceremony itself.

8 January 2017 10:02 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Golden Globes is the gift that keeps on giving for Emma Stone.

Et's Kevin Frazier caught up with the actress, alongside La La Land co-star Ryan Gosling and director Damien Chazelle in our one-on-one room after the film swept the awards show, where we showed Stone the moment she might have missed – her ex-boyfriend, Andrew Garfield, smooching Ryan Reynolds after Gosling's big win.

"What?" Stone asks as Frazier pulled out his phone to show her the epic lip-lock. "They did not kiss each other!"

"They did?!" she said after seeing the evidence, turning away to hide her reaction. "That's hilarious." 

Watch: Ryan Gosling Thanks 'Sweetheart' Eva Mendes and Honors Her Late Brother in Emotional Golden Globes Speech

While Stone was clearly shocked by Garfield's momentary romance, Gosling seemed to think the kiss was a sweet tribute.

‘La La Land’ Stars, Director React to Record-Breaking Golden Globes Sweep

8 January 2017 8:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Many were predicting a good night for “La La Land” at the Golden Globes, but even the musical’s biggest fans might have been surprised at just how well the evening went. In a record-breaking win, Damien Chazelle’s love letter to artists and dreamers walked away with seven Golden Globes, more than any other film in the show’s history. The closest films are 1975’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and 1978’s “Midnight Express,” which both won six prizes.

“This is so insane, I can’t even tell you,” producer Fred Berger said upon accepting the film’s best musical/comedy win. “Six years ago when we started working on this movie (it) was an utter fantasy.”

The fantasy became a reality when the film won in the comedy/musical category for best film, actress, and actor, in addition to winning director, screenplay, score, and song (for »

‘La La Land’ Dominates Golden Globes With Record-Breaking Sweep

8 January 2017 8:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For an Oscar race that has felt sewn up for a certain musical for quite some time this season, the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards was ready and willing to provide a big rubber stamp.

Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” walked away with seven awards Sunday night, but the 31-year-old director’s love letter to Los Angeles was the talk of the show even before emcee Jimmy Fallon launched into his opening monologue. With a musical number featuring a playlist of tunes from the film’s soundtrack, the show’s producers wrangled stars like Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake to participate, as well as the cast of “Stranger Things,” among others.

Gee, you think members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. liked this movie? Indeed, they handed it a record-breaking number of trophies that bested previous record holders “Midnight Express” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” And frankly, »

Golden Globes Snubs and Surprises: From ‘Moonlight’ to ‘The Night Manager’

8 January 2017 8:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Golden Globes are known for their unpredictability, but with so many of this year’s winners following Globe trends, 2017 had fewer surprises than usual. Still, who expected underdogs Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Isabelle Huppert to prevail on the film side? And who thought AMC’s “The Night Manager” would win more Globes than FX’s mighty “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” in the TV honors? Or that indie darling (and critics favorite) “Moonlight” would go home empty-handed, before winning the night’s final award? Or that HBO, the year’s most nominated TV network, would score a goose egg?

Here are 11 of the biggest snubs and surprises from the 2017 Golden Globes:

Surprise: Isabelle Huppert, “Elle

Most had tipped Natalie Portman to win her third Golden Globe for channeling the former First Lady in “Jackie,” but it was Isabelle Huppert who scored the best actress win for »

‘La La Land’ Wins Golden Globe For Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture

8 January 2017 7:43 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Consider this one something to sing (and dance) about. At Sunday night’s Golden Globes award ceremony, Damien Chazelle’s Hollywood-set musical, “La La Land,” walked away with the award for Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture after picking up big wins in a number of other categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay. A real musical! How about that!

Despite its wonderfully varied category — which included such contenders as “20th Century Women,” “Deadpool,” “Florence Foster Jenkins” and “Sing Street” — the Ryan Gosling- and Emma Stone-starring film has long been considered a frontrunner for not only this particular win, but further awards season glory. (Are we saying Best Picture? We’d be crazy not to.)

14 of the Wildest Golden Globe Moments Ever

4 January 2017 1:22 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Golden Globes has long held a reputation as the loosey-goosey younger sibling of the Academy Awards. Maybe it’s because it’s the start of awards show season, and stars aren’t yet tired of the red carpet grind. Or maybe it’s just become a self-fulfilling prophecy of the show that celebrities are going to get a little silly, but for whatever reason, the Globes annually seem to give us more double-take moments than most Hollywood spectacles. Let’s look at some of our favorites.
