Philippines-set crime thriller Metro Manila has scooped the top prize at the 16th Moet British Independent Film Awards in London, beating box office hit Philomena as well as The Selfish Giant, Starred Up and Le Week-end.
Clearly stunned, Ellis thanked Bifa for supporting “our little holiday film” when accepting the Best Film prize and - holding back tears - dedicated the award to his mother.
The crime drama, shot in the Philippine capital in the Tagalog language with a local cast and crew, debuted at Sundance in January and is the UK’s submission for the Best Foreign-Language Film at the Oscars »

My friend Peter Richardson, who has died of cancer aged 51, was a graphic artist with a special talent for typography. Peter's designs were always elegant and considered, with a sensitive use of colour. His collage-based illustrations combined simple drawings, text and photographic elements. These varied design skills lent themselves well to animation, in particular the creation of TV titles and motion graphics, where Peter made his career.
He was born in Guiseley, West Yorkshire. After secondary school he started a degree in engineering at Manchester University, but then decided to transfer to an art foundation course at Bradford College, where he was encouraged by the tutors Grant Devine and Ian Taylor.
He went on to study illustration at Liverpool Polytechnic, where he developed his interest in drawing, collage, making handmade books, lino-cut printing and typography. While at Liverpool he played guitar for the Passmore Sisters, who released a number of »
The CW just released a second set of promo posters for season 2 of Arrow that feature pretty much the entire male cast looking very topless, and very ripped. I don’t remember hearing that it was a requirement for being cast on the show, but that definitely seems to be the case if we can consider these posters as evidence.
Amell, along with co-stars David Ramsey (‘Diggle’), Colton Haynes (‘Roy Harper’), and Manu Bennett (‘Slade Wilson’) are showing off a different kind of talent when they strip down for your enjoyment – and hopefully there are no complaints. Although fans of Arrow have other excuses for watching, it doesn’t hurt to add a few more in the off-season. »

As March nears an end, it will be noted for losing three horror novelists:
Writer and editor David B. Silva, 62, died in early March, 2013.
Silva is best known for editing influential magazine The Horror Show, which ran from 1982-1991 . Silva won a World Fantasy Award in 1988 in the special, non-professional category for his work on the magazine. He also edited anthologies, including Post Mortem: New Tales of Ghostly Horror (1989) and Dead End: City Limits (1991), both with Paul F. Olson, as well as books collecting the best work from The Horror Show. From 1997-2002 he and Olson co-edited industry newsletter Hellnotes, for horror professionals and fans. In 2004, the newsletter was revived as a website.
Silva began publishing short fiction in 1981, and The Calling (1990) won a Bram Stoker Award. Several of his other stories were Stoker finalists, and collection Through Shattered Glass (2001) won an International Horror Guild Award »
One thing we can and should all agree on: Naya Rivera is the best part of Glee this season. Look what she did with “Nutbush City Limits.” And “Girl on Fire.” And “Mine.” And Santana is still the best bitch-slapper on the show. In Thursday’s new episode of Glee, she puts that bitch-slappery to song, dedicating Paula Abdul’s “Cold Hearted” to the talcumy hairless boy wonder Brody. Watch Vulture’s exclusive video of the performance below. It features fishnets and scaffolding, good for writhing around. You're welcome. »

Don’t say “diva” like it’s a dirty word. I mean, if living legend Aretha Franklin was more than happy to be front and center for VH1′s “Divas Live” extravaganza, then who are the rest of us to treat it like a common four-letter word, right?
Okay, so diva-dom might also be about milquetoast Emma Pillsbury reducing Cheesecake Factory managers to tears, and Rachel Berry’s runaway ego stomping around New York City like King Kong after an expensive blowout at the salon. It could even prompt Tina Cohen-Chang to withhold her “soup” from an ailing Blaine Anderson. »
