Inside the Academy Archives: A Priceless Trove of Foreign-Language Nominees

9 November 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Only French films compete for that country’s top César award. The Genies recognize Canadian movies, the Goyas spotlight Spanish cinema, and the Lolas celebrate German film. But at the American Academy’s annual kudosfest, all countries are eligible for best picture — and have been since the beginning.

Still, unless you count British movies (13 of which have taken home best picture Oscars), foreign cinema seldom competes for the top prize (only eight have been nominated, dating back to Jean Renoir’s “The Grand Illusion” in 1939). And yet, as distribution evolved and domestic audiences’ tastes expanded to support the release of international films on U.S. screens, the Academy created a special category to recognize non-English-speaking cinema.

2016 marks 60 years since the launch of the foreign-language Oscar category. Over the past six decades, the honorees have, quite literally, ranged from A (“A Man and a Woman,” “Amarcord,” “Amour”) to “Z” (Costa-Gavras’ intense »

35 Things We Learned from the Miracle Mile Commentary

27 January 2016 4:03 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The “end of the world” sub-genre is filled with all kinds of variations from thrillers to horror to comedy, but some of the best (and least seen) are the ones that use mankind’s annihilation as the backdrop for romance. Two relatively recent films — Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and These Final Hours — touch on it well and are great movies too, but neither match the romantic drive at the heart of 1988’s Miracle Mile. Writer/director Steve De Jarnatt‘s film — his second and, inexplicably, last feature — is a terrific little genre-bender that eases viewers into the first hours of a new relationship only to shift gears, both tonally and speed-wise, as the clock starts ticking towards an unknown possibility. It’s a great entry in the category of films taking place over one night, offers action beats, comedy, and a fun variety of interesting side characters, and »

People Are Flocking to a Wisconsin Town That's Sold Multiple Winning Lottery Tickets

13 January 2016 8:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What makes a town lucky? And with the Powerball jackpot up to a record $1.5 billion, are you really going to argue with whatever argument they have? Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, is home to the so-called Miracle Mile, where stores have handed out at least two multi-million-dollar lottery jackpots. "The biggest I've sold was a $6.5 million Megabucks back in '94 and my son sold a $208 million Powerball to the Sargento people back in, I believe, it was 2006," Phil Moses, who operates two convenience stores on the strip, told Wisn. Checking the Miracle Mile's official website, it looks like 506 South Main Street »

The Academy Museum Accepts Full-Scale Model Of The 1975 Jaws Shark

7 January 2016 12:03 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Academy Museum announced today that it has accepted into its collection a major gift of the sole surviving full-scale model of the 1975 Jaws shark, donated by Nathan Adlen. The monumental Fiberglas model is the fourth and final version made from the original mold. Created for display at the Universal Studios Hollywood at the time of the film’s release, the prop remained a popular backdrop for photos until 1990, when it was moved to the yard of Aadlen Brothers Auto Wrecking, a firm in Sun Valley, California, that regularly bought or hauled used vehicles from Universal Studios. With the business slated to close in January 2016, owner Nathan Adlen has made a generous gift of the historic prop to the Academy Museum.

The shark model will join the Museum’s unmatched holdings—including an underwater apparatus and fin used in Jaws and Jaws II—as the largest object to enter the Academy’s collection to date. »
