The Golden Globes! Everyone’s favorite Almost-the-Oscars ceremony. The 72nd Annual nominations were unveiled Thursday morning by presenters Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Paula Patton, Peter Krause and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma.

The HFPA went in big on Boyhood, The Imitation Game, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything, placing Birdman into the Comedy/Musical category where it is likely to clean up. Missing from the bunch are heavy hitters like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and only a single nomination for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

On the TV front, it was a big morning for Transparent, Orange is the New Black, The Affair, and House of Cards, while snubbing Emmy favorites Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, as well as hits like The Walking Dead, The Americans, Mad Men or the final season of Boardwalk Empire.

The 72nd Annual Golden Globes will air January 11 at 8 Pm on NBC, »

Nominations For The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Announced

11 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.

There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor. »

Birdman leads Golden Globes noms

11 December 2014 5:56 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Birdman is fast emerging as Fox Searchlight’s poster child of the season as the New Regency production emerged top of the pile on December 11 with seven 72nd Golden Globe nominations.

Alejandro González Iñárritu’s film earned kudos for best film in a comedy or musical, best actor in the same category for Michael Keaton, supporting acting nods for Edward Norton and Emma Stone, director, screenplay and score.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave five nominations to IFC FilmsBoyhood, as well as to TWC’s The Imitation Game, while Gone Girl, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Selma and The Theory Of Everything earned four apiece.

There were total shut-outs for Unbroken, American Sniper and Top Five, while Interstellar earned a sole nomination for Hans Zimmer’s score.

Timothy Spall was conspicuous in his absence in the acting stakes for Mr Turner as was Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night.

Golden Globes Nominations: ‘Birdman’, ‘Imitation Game’ & ‘Boyhood’ Lead Film, More Surprises On TV Side

11 December 2014 5:47 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Golden Globes spread the wealth among this year’s films and TV series when nominations were announced this morning. The group that picked last year’s Best Picture Oscar winner 12 Years A Slave has tapped IFC FilmsBoyhood, Sony Classics’ Foxcatcher, the Weinsteins’ The Imitation Game, Paramount’s Selma and Focus FeaturesThe Theory Of Everything in its top drama race, with most everything going to form in the major acting categories.

The Best Motion Picture Comedy race includes Fox Searchlight’s Birdman, the Alexander Gonzales Inarritu-directed pic that led the way yesterday at the SAG Awards. It did so this morning, too, with seven nominations followed by five apiece from Boyhood and Imitation Game. That helped give Searchlight a leading 12 noms total — it also had Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, which also scored a Best Comedy/Musical nom as did Disney’s Into The Woods, the »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 13 review: Go Now

23 September 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Under The Dome concludes its second season with an action and nonsense-crammed finale. Here's Frances' review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.13 Go Now

Farewell Big Jim, hello Big Bad Jim. Those fit-to-burst shirts of Dean Norris’ have been anticipating a Hulk-style eruption for two seasons now, and this week, it finally happened.

Pauline’s assisted-death sent Jim Rennie over the edge in the season two finale, which saw him have the last word in his and Rebeca’s ongoing faith vs. science debate via the blunt end of a hammer. “Rationalise that, science lady”, Dean Norris’ furious eyes seemed to say. At least Rebecca died doing what she loved – being a paper-thin avatar for the single, ultimately quashed, challenge to Under The Dome’s dominant theism.

From there, Jim went on to set fire to Pauline’s corpse, put a bullet in the head of food-hoarding bit-player Andrea and attempt »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 12 review: Turn

16 September 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Under The Dome’s penultimate season 2 episode is like a compilation of all its maddest bits. Here’s Frances’ review…

This review contains spoilers.

2.12 Turn

This week, the people of Chester’s Mill were facing a problem that can’t be solved by a Surface Tablet, Julia’s Prius, or Rebecca Pine and her can of magic lima beans: the threat of cancellation. In a last-ditch attempt to bring viewers flocking back to their TV screens like so many magnetised Monarch butterflies, Turn threw everything it had into the mix, and the result was an episode so unimprovably stupid, you just couldn’t look away.

To wit, the dialogue from this week’s pre-credits scene:

Joe: It’s contracting!

Norrie: You mean it’s shrinking?

Joe: It keeps starting and stopping!

Rebecca: At least the dome stopped spinning and inverting the atmosphere and that’s why the temperature’s warmed up. »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 11 review: Black Ice

9 September 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chester's Mill experiences a life-threatening cold spell in this week's Under The Dome. Will they survive? What do you think?

This review contains spoilers.

2.11 Black Ice

Aka the one where an episode-long environmental threat almost kills everyone, then doesn’t. If Under The Dome were to get any more predictable… nope, there’s no way to finish that sentence; this show achieved peak predictability yonks ago.

Despite months of conditioning, a tiny part of me still dared to hope for a glimmer of surprise in Black Ice. Perhaps people really would start dying. Perhaps Lyle’s much-discussed apocalypse would arrive. Perhaps season two’s remaining episodes would be spent watching the whole damn lot of them go up in a thousand-foot high wall of flames. There’s always hope, I told myself.

Nurturing hope was very much the message of this week’s episode. Even re-enacting the final moments of »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 10 review: The Fall

2 September 2014 6:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This week’s Under The Dome is all about the egg-xit strategy. Here’s Frances’ review…

This review contains spoilers.

2.10 The Fall

A moment’s silence please, to mark the passing of Phil Bushey, whose leap of faith landed him not on the soft rubber of the Zenith children’s playground but on the sharp end of a massive pointy rock. Rest in peace Phil - you may have spent your final days creeping about Chester’s Mill like the most arbitrary of arbitrary Scooby Doo villains but we’ll always remember you as the gambling addict, town sheriff, Skeeter Davis-loving DJ that none of the writers knew what to do with that you really were.

The Rennie men drove the action of The Fall (directed by E.R.'s Eriq La Salle, incidentally) by doing what the Rennie men do – making threats, pointing guns at people and locking women »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 9 review: The Red Door

26 August 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We knew it couldn’t last. The latest episode of Under The Dome is barmier than ever. Here’s Frances’ review…

This review contains spoilers.

2.9 The Red Door

Let’s take a big fat internet-eraser to last week’s review, in which some idiot stated that Under The Dome had swapped its barminess for a new sensible approach. That clearly isn’t the case. What seemed, over the past fortnight, like a reboot into safer, more generic territory was really just the show rearing up and readying itself for this week’s gigantic leap back to bonkers-land.

At least the audience knows where it stands again. No longer do we have to grudgingly concede that Under The Dome has smartened up its act and started to make actual sense. We’re all back in the state of baffled-yet-entertained carbon-monoxide-leak dizziness that the series has kept us in since the dome came down. »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 6 review: In The Dark

6 August 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here they are, the winners and losers of this week’s Under The Dome episode, in their very own awards ceremony…

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 In The Dark

Awards season may be over in Hollywood, but for one week only, we’re dishing out shiny gongs to the most notable parts of this week’s Under The Dome. A round of applause, please, for our winners and nominees…

Most easily-resolved environmental threat of the week: Dust storm-induced suffocation, which is definitely, absolutely going to kill everyone in Chester’s Mill until they spray water on it so it doesn’t.

Rebecca Pine’s most disinterested explanation of an easily-resolved environmental threat of the week: “The acidity in the red rain must have fried the top-soil. Or something [shrugs] it’s fine, we’ll probably fix it with a Mad Max sort of windmill thing made out of science and whatever”.

Jessica Lange Honored With Santa Barbara Film Festival’s Kirk Douglas Award

30 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jessica Lange will be the ninth recipient of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Kirk Douglas award for excellence in film this year.

Lange, who won an Emmy in her first season on “American Horror Story,” will be presented with the award at a gala at Santa Barbara’s Bacara Resort and Spa on Nov. 16. She follows past recipients such as Quentin Tarantino, Harrison Ford, Robert De Niro and John Travolta.

Jessica Lange possesses the three key elements in making it in this crazy business: talent, beauty, and intelligence,” said Kirk Douglas in a statement, “all of which have served her well and continue to do so. It is my honor to give her my award.”

Lange won the Academy Awards for best actress and supporting actress for her roles in “Blue Sky” and “Tootsie” respectively. She was also nominated for best actress in four additional roles: “Frances,” “Country, »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 5 review: Reconciliation

29 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What’s down Under The Dome’s rabbit hole? Next week will tell. And then promptly forget all about it…

This review contains spoilers.

2.5 Reconciliation

“When in doubt, have a man come through a door with a gun in his hand” wrote Raymond Chandler on the art of sating his readers’ hunger for constant action. Or, as Under The Dome might say, “When in doubt, blow something up, shoot some guys in the chest, then have the gang discover the entrance to a secret tunnel beneath the high school”. Constant action and distr-action is what Under The Dome provides for its audience. As Chandler put it, stop to think and you’re lost.

The show’s chameleonic approach is engineered to keep us all hooked. You can’t be bored in Chester’s Mill, not when there are rogue sheriffs, brightly coloured explosions, more murders than the average episode of Homicide: Life On The Street, »

Under The Dome season 2 episode 4 review: Revelation

23 July 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dead piglets, a flu virus, and flashbacks all figure in this week’s increasingly tangled Under The Dome

Review

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 Revelation

A colossal Frankenstein’s creature with speculums for legs and Bunsen burners for arms, stomping around Chester’s Mill kicking over war memorials and squeezing Rabies-filled pipettes into the faces of puppies. Only if Big Jim and Julia had fought and won against that in Revelation could this week’s Under The Dome have carried a more obtuse ‘science is bad’ message.

Ever since the show introduced Rebecca Pine - all our dumbest fears about what happens when evidence-based rationality is given a say packaged in human form - Under The Dome’s been like a dog with a bone about the opposition between faith and science. Without tempering by the former, it tells us, the latter will happily euthanize the population whilst cheerfully humming the Periodic Table song. »

Mel Brooks discusses 'Blazing Saddles,' Brooksfilms, and the best screening ever

12 May 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So the phone rings, and I answer it, and it's Mel Brooks. That's an actual thing that happened. That's now something I can say. And even better, the 40 minute conversation that followed me answering the phone is one of my favorites in recent memory. How often do you get to talk to a comedy legend about one of the pinnacle moments of not only their career, but of film comedy in general? I was told I'd have about 15 minutes originally. Time was tight. And if you get offered 15 minutes to talk to Mel Brooks about "Blazing Saddles," you take it, right? We ended up having a really fun back and forth about that film, about films he's produced, about his partnership with Gene Wilder, and about the ways Hollywood failed the great Richard Pryor. The only reason we wrapped it up is because we had to, and it would have »

10 Actors Who Won Oscars For The Wrong Role

19 March 2014 4:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The voting body of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has an unfortunate habit of giving Oscars to actors for the wrong performances. In many cases, these head-scratching decisions are described as the result of an actor being “due” for a win, an older actor receiving an award akin to a lifetime achievement award, or a simply a safe choice over more unconventional roles. Whatever the reasons, some Oscar winning roles certainly seem questionable in retrospect when compared to more renowned roles from an actor’s résumé.

The Academy also has a long history of giving make-up awards for weaker roles when the general consensus is that a person was snubbed years earlier. But often this has to do with the level of competition within a category in a certain year. For example, Jessica Lange’s best performance ever was probably in Frances, but unfortunately »
