Timeless style by Anne-Katrin Titze

Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz, Amanda Seyfried and Ben Stiller with While We're Young director Noah Baumbach, also starring Naomi Watts and Adam Driver with Charles Grodin, Maria Dizzia and Dree Hemingway Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Noah Baumbach says Academy Award Best Costume Design winner Ann Roth "has a way of dressing people - that you can't put your finger on." Roth won for Anthony Minghella's The English Patient, starring Ralph Fiennes, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe and Kristin Scott Thomas and is a BAFTA honoree for John Schlesinger's The Day Of The Locust, which starred Donald Sutherland, Karen Black and Burgess Meredith. Roth also received Oscar nominations for her work on Robert Benton's Places In The Heart and again with Minghella for The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Noah's 2012 film, Frances Ha, with Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner and Adam Driver, had no costume designer credit, although Sumner's godmother is famed costume designer Colleen Atwood. »

Drummer or a fighter? 'Whiplash' battles 'American Sniper' for Sound Mixing Oscar

20 February 2015 11:09 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Sound Mixing can be one of the hardest races to predict, due in large part to its confusion with Best Sound Editing. Sound Mixing honors the balancing of the various production dialogue, Adr, foley and effects, and music tracks of a film into one cohesive whole. This award is generally given to both the production sound mixers and the re-recording mixers. The Cinema Audio Society rewards one film each year for its achievement in the field, and since 1993, the winner there has repeated at the Academy Awards 12 times: -Break- 1995: "Apollo 13" 1996: "The English Patient" 1997: "Titanic" 1998: "Saving Private Ryan" 1999: "The Matrix" 2000: "Gladiator" 2006: "Dreamgirls" 2008: "Slumdog Millionaire" 2009: "The Hurt Locker" 2011: "Hugo" 2012: "Les Miserables" 2013: "Gravity" This year, Cas honored "Birdman" over fello »

Oscars 2015: Which Film Deserves to Win Best Picture?

20 February 2015 3:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: We don’t always agree, Guy (no two critics ever should), but it’s safe to say we’ve been more simpatico than usual over the course of this very long and happily almost-over awards season. I think we would both argue, for example, that “Foxcatcher” was ridiculously worthy of an Oscar nomination for best picture, and that its failure to nab one seems all the more inexplicable given that Bennett Miller managed to crack the much more competitive directing race. Likewise, I don’t know anyone else who had almost precisely the same reaction and counter-reaction to “Birdman” as I did — an initial thrill that almost completely fell apart on second viewing.

Clearly the industry feels otherwise, if “Birdman’s” presumed Oscar-frontrunner status is to be believed — which I fear it is, even as some of us are still clinging desperately to the hope that “Boyhood” will prevail. »

'Grand Budapest' advantage at Oscars? History of Best Production Design and Best Picture

19 February 2015 8:55 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Academy Award for Best Production Design can be a tricky one to predict, as it oftentimes doesn't correspond with the leading contender for Best Picture. In order to correctly predict it, let's turn first to the Art Directors Guild Awards: since 1996, the Adg has rewarded the eventual Oscar winner a total of 11 times. -Break- Oscars predictions: Experts predict 'Grand Budapest Hotel' will win Costume Design A little bit of background: from 1996 to 1999, the Adg gave out only one award for Feature Film. From 2000-2005, they gave out two prizes: one for Period or Fantasy Film, the other for Contemporary. Beginning in 2006, the award for Period or Fantasy was split in two, thus creating a total of three categories in which films could compete. In addition, starting in 2007, the award went solely to the production designer: 1996: Stuart Craig, et al, "The English Patient" 1997: Peter Lamont, et al, "Titanic" 1999: Rick. »

Publicists Guild Honorees Bob & Harvey Weinstein Know How to Score Wins

19 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following in the footsteps of such Hollywood legends as Samuel Goldwyn, Louis B. Mayer, David Selznick and Jack Warner, the Weinsteins have always understood the vital role publicity plays in the filmmaking equation. And this year their instinctive knack for grabbing headlines and creating Oscar buzz has yielded 10 Academy Award nominations for their British World War II thriller “The Imitation Game,” including best picture, lead actor (Benedict Cumberbatch), supporting actress (Keira Knightley) and director (Morten Tyldum).

Those noms join the team’s already overloaded trophy case with its 300-plus Oscar noms to date, including five Academy Awards for best picture . Their gold rush began in 1996 with “The English Patient,” but it was their masterful Oscar campaign for 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love,” when that comedy upset the heavy favorite, Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan,” that cemented the Weinsteins’ reputation as consummate publicity operators who know how to play the system »

Turning the lens on Oscar nominees for Best Cinematography

19 February 2015 7:23 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Cinematography is one of the most closely watched technical categories at the Oscars, due largely to the fact that it’s often so difficult to predict. Indeed, since 1986, when the American Society of Cinematographers first started handing out prizes, only 11 of its winners went on to triumph at the Oscars: -Break- 1990: Dean Semler, “Dances with Wolves” 1995: John Toll, “Braveheart” 1996: John Seale, “The English Patient” 1997: Russell Carpenter, “Titanic” 1999: Conrad L. Hall, “American Beauty” 2002: Conrad L.

Cas Sound Mixing Award Winners Do Fairly Well at the Oscars

16 February 2015 8:17 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Birdman took home the Cinema Audio Society Award for sound mixing in a live action film on Saturday. The best picture-nominated film is also nominated for both of the sound Oscars (sound mixing and sound editing). The film lost the BAFTA Award for best sound to Whiplash, which is also nominated for both of the Oscars for sound.

Since the Cas Awards began in 1994, all 21 of the live action features that won for sound mixing have also been nominated for the sound mixing Oscar, and 12 have won. In contrast, four of the 14 best sound BAFTA winners — since the BAFTAs have taken place before the Oscars — didn’t win an Oscar for their sound. Of the 10 that did win, five won both of the Oscars for sound, four won the Oscar for sound mixing and one took home the Oscar for sound editing.

Non-American Born Best Director Oscar Winners

11 February 2015 7:24 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With the DGA Award in hand, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has become a frontrunner in the best director Oscar race for Birdman.

Only seven winners of the DGA Award have not won the best director Oscar in the 66 years that the Directors Guild of America has given the award. The most recent case was two years ago, when Ben Affleck wasn’t even nominated for the best director Oscar for Argo, which won best picture.

No American has won for best director since 2011 and if Inarritu, who is from Mexico, takes the Oscar this year, the trend will continue. Inarritu could become the second Latin American director to win for best director, following Alfonso Cuaron’s win last year.

In the 86 years since the Academy Awards’ inception, 89 Oscars have been given for best director. Twenty-six awards (29 percent) went to non-American born directors.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Queen of the Desert’

6 February 2015 10:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The world is full of men content to spend their lives within a few miles of where they were born, men who will love one woman, learn one language and go to their graves hardly having dreamed at all. These are not the men about whom Werner Herzog makes movies, although it took until age 72 for the chronicler of such bombastic souls as “Aguirre” and “Fitzcarraldo” to deem a woman worthy of one of his mighty portraits. Better late than never, and though Nicole Kidman is hardly the female Klaus Kinski, in the formidable character epic “Queen of the Desert,” she conveys with quiet determination what Kinski never could: the kind of conviction that changes the world.

Leaning more on romance than one might suppose to capture such an independent spirit as Gertrude Lowthian Bell, whose self-directed explorations among and dealings with the Middle East’s many conflicting tribes informed »

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #7. Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum (Stockholm, Pennsylvania)

5 February 2015 6:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries”…

Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum: Plants Can Hear. Atmos. Stumbling Stones in Potsdam.

Lavallee: We read Nikole Beckwith’s Stockholm, Pennsylvania as psychological warfare —— what was the approach in audibly depicting Leia’s longing?

Kroll-Rosenbaum: Stockholm is a nuanced portrait of an incredibly complex situation. The music is full of possibility and openness. It comes in waves and breathes. It was important that the music leave room for interpretation, so that the audience could experience discovery along with Leia. Nikole paints in very clear and purposeful strokes, and the music is designed to be transparent in its motivation.

Kroll-Rosenbaum: There is a range of different kinds of music in the score. There is music that is about the outside, literally and figuratively. I built a harmonic structure out of two chords that sits somewhere between resolution and forward motion. I thought about ancient music, »

Walter Murch to receive Locarno honour

4 February 2015 10:24 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Triple Oscar-winner to be honoured with the Vision Award.

The 68th Locarno Film Festival (Aug 5-15) is to give its Vision Award - Nescens to award-winning editor and sound designer Walter Murch. The award has previously been given to special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull and “Mister Steadicam” Garrett Brown.

Murch worked with George Lucas on Thx 1138 (1971) and American Graffiti (1973) and Francis Ford Coppola on The Rain People (1969), The Godfather (1972), The Conversation (1974) and The Godfather: Part II (1974).

His work with Coppola as sound designer on Apocalypse Now won him his first Oscar in 1980.

Following his own directorial debut in 1985 with Return to Oz, he subsequently won two more Academy Awards for both sound and film editing on Anthony Minghella’s The English Patient (1996) – the first and only time in history the same person has won the Oscar in both categories. In this respect he was repeating an earlier record set when he won double BAFTA awards in 1975 for »

Walter Murch To Be Honored By Locarno Film Festival With Vision Award

4 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Walter Murch, the multiple-Oscar-winning U.S. film editor and sound designer, whose name is closely linked to 1970’s directors such as George Lucas (“Thx 1138″ and “American Graffiti”) and Francis Ford Coppola, will be honored by the Locarno Film Festival with its Vision Award – Nescens dedicated to those whose intuitions and skills have left their mark on film history.

“Murch’s career has embraced first sound and then film editing, pursuing a concept of audio-visual composition that treats the two as inseparable,” the prominent Swiss fest dedicated to indie filmmaking pointed out in a statement.

Case in point is Coppola’s “The Conversation,” for which Murch won double BAFTA awards, for both sound and film editing, in 1975. His other credits with Coppola include “The Rain People,” “The Godfather,” and “Apocalypse Now,” for which he won his first Oscar, for best sound, in 1980. Murch subsequently won two more Academy Awards, »
