John Irving attacks 'intolerant' Trump in defence of political awards speeches

20 February 2017 10:28 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Writer of The Cider House Rules laments new president’s threat to Lgbt and abortion rights, and says winners at next weekend’s Oscars should be free to protest

Oscar-winning novelist John Irving has taken aim at Donald Trump over the latter’s threat to Lgbt and abortion rights as well as religious-based bigotry.

Irving, who won a best adapted screenplay Oscar in 2000 for the adaptation of his own novel The Cider House Rules, has contributed an essay to the Hollywood Reporter in which he considered the “protocol” over whether or not award winners should make explicitly political speeches.

Oscar Winner John Irving Urges Hollywood to Get Political With "Outright Bias" in Acceptance Speeches (Guest Column)

20 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

At the 2000 Oscars, my acceptance speech (for the screenplay of The Cider House Rules) was less than one minute long; for the most part, I thanked my wife and children and my director, Lasse Hallstrom. I began my speech by thanking "the Academy for this honor to a film on the abortion subject and Miramax for having the courage to make this movie in the first place." I ended by thanking "everyone at Planned Parenthood" — and what was called, at the time, the National Abortion Rights Action League. There was applause.

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

When it comes to the world of composing for films, it’s most definitely a man’s world — but this year there’s one woman who is a part of the conversation: Mica Levi, a.k.a. Micachu. Let’s get to know the 29-year-old talent that is garnering Oscar attention this year for working on Jackie and see where this talent fits into Academy Awards history.

Micachu, the daughter of two musicians who began writing and playing music at the age of four, is an English multihyphenate — singer, songwriter, composer, and producer — best known for creating experimental music in the band Micachu & The Shapes. The Surrey native has released six mixtapes, six albums (two of which were soundtracks — more on those later), and, while at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, even wrote an orchestral piece for the London Philharmonic Orchestra »

Harvey Weinstein and Bob Weinstein have been fixtures in the film biz for decades and have produced some of the biggest movies that have hit the big screen. And when it comes to Oscars — particularly the best picture category — they’ve amassed numerous nominations and wins, from their time at Miramax to The Weinstein Company, with Lion poised to be the 27th to-date.

Lion is up against some big threats in the best picture category at the 2017 Oscars, but The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg — this site’s namesake — lists it as a frontrunner. Other films in contention include La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Hell or High Water, Hacksaw Ridge, Fences, Hidden Figures, Arrival, and Sully.
