Best Picture: “12 Years a Slave.” What an incredible lineup! Apart from “American Hustle” (a blatant knockoff of Scorsese’s superior, Oscar-unrewarded “Goodfellas”) and Scorsese’s own equally unwieldy “The Wolf of Wall Street,” I would be happy to see any of these films go home victorious. And yet, “12 Years a Slave” strikes me as an achievement above the rest, inviting people to empathize with a human being caught at the center of a system whose implications and aftermath society still refuses to confront. Considering Hollywood’s belief in the healing power of Holocaust movies, it’s scandalous how long America’s slaveholding legacy had gone unexamined — until now.
Best Director: Alfonso Cuaron, “Gravity.” Though I know some are predicting “Gravity” for the top prize, direction is surely the category where this mind-blowing, mostly virtual achievement most warrants recognition. Cuaron delivers a visceral cinematic experience nonpareil, »

In the lead-up to the 86th annual Academy Awards on March 2, HitFix will be bringing you the lowdown on all 24 Oscar categories with multiple entries each day. Take a few notes and bone up on the competition as we give you the edge in your office Oscar pool! While uncertainty reigns in the Best Picture race, the Best Director conversation has been rather more concrete for a while now -- which is not to say that it isn't a deep field. It was certainly a competitive one at the nomination stage, with one three slots seemingly nailed down and a generous handful of names duking it out for the final two. The field we got arguably isn't as adventurous or surprise-laden as last year's, but nonetheless includes five distincte artists with passionate followings : three Americans who have been nominated before, one Mexican who has been on the Oscar radar »

Earlier today we brought you the news about Robert Rodriguez confirming that Frank Miller has started work on Sin City 3, but before then there is of course the small matter of the upcoming sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. So far, all we've seen in the way of promotional material is a teaser poster and a shot of Josh Brolin (Men in Black 3) as Dwight, but now we've got another look at the film thanks to Entertainment Weekly, who has given us a look at Jessica Alba (Nancy), Mickey Rourke (Marv), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Johnny)...

We're still six months away from the release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the follow-up to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 2005 cult classic, but according to Rodriguez, legendary comic book creator Miller is already turning his attention to the third instalment, having started work on Sin City 3.
"I was just here with Frank Miller and we were watching [A Dame to Kill For] last night," Rodriguez tells Collider. "[Miller] watched it last night with me and then at the end he said, he didn’t have any comments, he was very happy with it. And he said, ‘now, about part three’... So he’s already there on part three!"

For years, the Oscars and Martin Scorsese just didn't seem to jibe. His films didn't resonate with that crowd. Maybe it was because he was an outsider. Maybe it was because he didn't trade in the breed of films that typically found footing with the Academy. Whatever the case, it became, for decades, a consistent note: How does Martin Scorsese not have an Oscar? Things began to change nearly three decades into his career. Until 2002, a Scorsese film registering with the group was not nearly the consistent occurrence it is today. Yet since "Gangs of New York," four of his last five films Have received Best Picture nominations and he finds himself a perennial fixture on the Oscar circuit, a circuit he has seen change drastically over the course of his career. With Oscar voting drawing to a close, I spoke with Scorsese recently about that very phenomenon, how zealous »

Paramount’s push for Oscar gold with “The Wolf of Wall Street” has led its central team—Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jonah Hill—into the press melee to talk up the film’s many aspects. It’s a two-sided coin: they have plenty to praise but also plenty to defend, as more voices from Jordan Belfort’s past crop up to criticize the film’s immersive depiction of the New York stockbroker. Condemnation is nothing new to Scorsese however, having battled controversy numerous times over the course of his career with works like “The Last Temptation of Christ," “Taxi Driver” and “Goodfellas." But in a new interview with Salon, the director revealed he’s never attached himself to any of his projects, past, present or future, just to see what the audience’s reaction might be. “In none of those cases was I making a movie just because I »

Jonah Hill is feeling "incredible" right now and for good reason. The 30-year-old stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to celebrate his Oscar-nominated role in The Wolf of Wall Street and to dish about how he landed the part as stockbroker Donnie Azoff. "Well, I had met Martin Scorsese at the Oscars when I was nominated for Moneyball and I was like I'm not going to go up to him and bother him because he's my hero," Hill told Ellen DeGeneres, during an appearance scheduled to air on Wednesday. He continued: "Goodfellas is the reason I dedicated my life to making films and he…I was sitting right in front of him and I was like I'm not going to bother »
At the time of writing this piece – the first in our “Beyond Filth” feature series – certain decisions were yet to be revealed. The gold mask representing the recognition of the British Academy of Film and television Arts (BAFTA) still awaited their respective nominees to ascend to the stage and lay claim to their prize.
But from out of the uncertainty emerged one glaring certainty. In a year in which only Matthew McConaughey, in an all too brief supporting role in The Wolf of Wall Street, and Michael Fassbender could stand shoulder to shoulder with James McAvoy; even Scotland’s leading man suffered the fate of being overlooked. So Filth will not have been celebrating at this year’s post-bafta festivities. It is a startling omission, and one that failed to acknowledge the finest British film of the year. But then as Jon S. Baird reflected, “This was the most unpopular kid in school. »

This three-day festival is aimed at nurturing young film-makers, and there's plenty for them to be inspired by. The first day focuses on documentary as a tool for radical politics and social change (as in The Act Of Killing or Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer), and the second, on fiction, brings rebellious teen flick We Are The Freaks. The third day is on animation, with screenings, workshops (on how to make a short doc on your mobile)and professional advice, including wise words from Gravity's visual effects ace, Neil Corbould.

We've already featured a great talk with Martin Scorsese from David Poland and his Dp/30 interview series, and now another big part of The Wolf of Wall Street sits down for an interesting 30-minute chat. Jonah Hill has been on quite the promotional and awards season run for his Oscar nominated supporting performance in the controversial drama, and he indicates as much at the beginning of this interview. And then he dives into some interesting stories, including how Dustin Hoffman actually had a pivotal part in launching Hill's career as an actor, thanks to his son Jake Hoffman. The whole interview is great. Watch! Here's the interview with Jonah Hill for The Wolf of Wall Street (via Movies.com): The Wolf of Wall Street is directed by legendary Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of everything from Taxi Driver to Raging Bull to Cape Fear to Goodfellas to Casino »

Last night at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City, Leonardo DiCaprio, Wolf of Wall Street screenwriter Terence Winter, and longtime Scorsese editor Thelma Schoonmaker got together as part of a short DiCaprio-Scorsese retrospective to discuss their most recent film. One topic was of discussion was the film's lengthy Quaalude scene, in which Jordan (DiCaprio) and Donnie (Jonah Hill) pop some decades-old sedatives, with interesting results.According to Winter, the idea to combine the first part of the scene — which involves Jordan losing control of his body outside a country club — with Donnie's choking scene that comes later arose from the extensive script meetings that Scorsese, DiCaprio, and Winter held prior to shooting. “At some point during that we were laughing, and Leo remarked about the great energy in that scene. We were talking about Goodfellas and the scene of you know, that sequence with Ray Liotta’s crazy day »
