Potential Record-Breaking Year for English Actors in the Best Actor Category

16 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

This year’s best actor race is filled with strong contenders, and if Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Oyelowo and Jack O’Connell all land nominations for best actor, this year could break the record for the most English actors to score a nomination in the same category in the same year.

Redmayne’s incredible portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, based on Jane Hawking’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, could result in his first Oscar nomination. Redmayne will receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the 26th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Jan. 3, whose past seven recipients have gone on to receive Oscar nominations.

Cumberbatch won the best actor award at the Hollywood Film Awards for his portrayal of Alan Turing, who helped crack the Nazi Enigma Code during World War II. (Redmayne »

Daniel Day-Lewis Knighted by Prince William at Buckingham Palace

15 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Here's one award Meryl Streep can't take away from Daniel Day-Lewis. Though the actor joked while receiving the 2013 Best Actor Oscar for Lincoln that Streep was the first choice to play America's 16th president, Day-Lewis found himself tops on the list for a distinctly British honor Friday: being knighted by Prince William at an elegant Buckingham Palace ceremony. The 57-year-old actor, who has racked up a record-breaking three Best Actor Oscar wins among many other awards, was honored for his services to drama, and the Duke of Cambridge, 32, administered the ceremonial two shoulder taps on a kneeling, tuxedoed Day-Lewis.

See Daniel Day-Lewis being knighted by Prince William

14 November 2014 12:48 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sir Daniel Day-Lewis has been knighted during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

The three-time Academy Award winner was formally given a knighthood by the Duke of Cambridge.

Day-Lewis was confirmed to be receiving a knighthood in June as part of the Queen's Birthday Honours.

He was chosen for the honour in recognition of his services to the dramatic arts.

Other recipients on the Birthday Honours List this year included late teenage cancer campaigner Stephen Sutton and actress-filmmaker Angelina Jolie.

Day-Lewis's knighthood is merely the latest honour in his esteemed cinema and stage career. He has also won four Best Actor BAFTA Awards and two Golden Globes.

His most notable roles include playing Irish writer Christy Brown in My Left Foot, the monstrous Bill the Butcher in Gangs of New York, and more recently the slain Us president in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. »

Howard Shore To Score Martin Scorsese's 'Silence' & More Soundtrack News

6 November 2014 3:38 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, this is an exciting development. Howard Shore—the respected and prolific composer who has written terrific film music for directors like David Cronenberg (“The Brood,” “Dead Ringers," “eXistenZ”) and Peter Jackson ("The Lord Of The Rings” trilogy) has recently confirmed with The Hollywood Reporter that he will score Martin Scorsese’s upcoming religious drama “Silence.” The film has been a passion project of the director’s for quite some time now and it’s not hard to see why—religion, just as much as crime and guilt, qualifies as an obsession in the films of Martin Scorsese, and it’s been over two decades since he tackled the subject head-on, as he did with 1988’s “The Last Temptation of Christ."  Shore has composed appropriately grand music for many of Scorsese’s later pictures, including “Gangs of New York” and “The Aviator,” and the cinema-going world waits with bated breath »

New York Serves as the Backdrop for a Number of Oscar Contenders

3 November 2014 11:12 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

While some films in contention for the 87th Academy Awards in February are set in Los Angeles, such as Nightcrawler, a number of films are based in New York City. Begin Again features Mark Ruffalo as a New York City record label executive who records music around New York City with a songwriter played by Keira Knightley; Birdman, about a washed-up Hollywood actor trying to write, direct and act in a Broadway play; Whiplash, about a jazz drummer at a Manhattan school; Still Alice, about a professor from Columbia dealing with early-onset Alzheimer’s; and Love is Strange, about a same-sex couple from Manhattan.

Jessica Chastain stars in two different films that take place in New York: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, about a couple living in New York, and A Most Violent Year, about a couple living in New York during one of the city’s most violent years. »

Boardwalk Empire, Ep. 5.08: “Eldorado” leaves only the dust and ash of regret

26 October 2014 10:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Boardwalk Empire Season 5, Episode 8: “Eldorado”

Written by Howard Korder & Terence Winter

Directed by Tim Van Patten

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

Too late” was the operative phrase for Boardwalk Empire‘s final hour. Too late for salvation, too late for romance, too late for redemption, and ultimately, too late for survival.

That it seemed obvious for the series’ finale to send Nucky out was a bit of a given, considering the telegraphed nature of the flashback conceit which had been building for the entirety of this season. There were glimpses of hope, and chances for atonement but the clock had already run out by the time Nucky took his final stroll down the boardwalk.

It was an hour filled with subversion. The entire nature of the season seemed to be tailor-made for Nucky to come to Gillian’s aid, only it would appear that this particular outfit »

The Noteworthy: L.M. Kit Carson (1941-2014), The "Dying of the Light" Debacle, Polanski Makes "Macbeth"

21 October 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

L.M. Kit Carson, the Texan film legend best known for David Holzman's Diary, has passed away at the age of 73.  For Filmmaker Magazine, Vadim Rizov gathers some valuable insight from Fabrice Aragno, the cinematographer of Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage. Eric Hynes provides an excellent and authentic New Yorker take on Gangs of New York for Reverse Shot's Martin Scorsese Symposium. Above: we're disappointed to hear that Paul Schrader's latest film has been essentially taken out of his hands—in response the filmmaker has disowned the picture. For Film Comment, Violet Lucca interviews Ruben Östlund about his acclaimed film, Force majeure:

 "Lucca: Like your previous work, Force Majeure is intended to foster a philosophical debate about what human behavior means or implies. Do you envision that being more of an internal process, or do you want people to talk it out?

ÖStlund: Yeah, in a group. »

DVD Review – The Other Woman (2014)

16 October 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Other Woman, 2014.

Directed by Nick Cassavetes.

Starring Cameron Diaz, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton and Taylor Kinney.

Synopsis:

After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly soon meets the wife he’s been betraying. And when yet another love affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot revenge on the three-timing S.O.B.

Whatever happened to Cameron Diaz? Such a brilliant talent, beautiful and pleasing, why has the actress made such bad career choices in terms of her films? When she “stormed” into our lives in a busty red dress, using a local newspaper in a desperate attempt to shield her from the rain before sweeping Jim Carrey off his feet in 1994’s The Mask, the world was her oyster. But despite some excellent work in the likes of Being John Malkovich and Gangs of New York, Diaz has found herself stuck in vortex of unfunny comedies and critical backlashes. »

Oscar Season Gift From The Academy As Stunning Hollywood Costume Exhibit Premieres At Future Site Of Movie Museum

2 October 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

It may not be the Grand Opening celebration that the Academy of Motion Pictures Art & Sciences is going to be throwing when they  launch the long-awaited Academy  Museum Of Motion Pictures at some point in 2017 as is now planned,  but the Los Angeles debut of the much-acclaimed Hollywood Costume exhibit imported by the Academy  from the Victoria And Albert Museum in London  is really  something to see.  The Academy’s Ellen Harrington told me at Wednesday night’s opening event (in the space at Wilshire and Fairfax  that will eventually become the Acad’s Museum ) that it took them months just  to get it in the kind of shape needed to house this remarkable exhibit celebrating the art of costume design and its vital importance, in so many ways, to the art  of movies.  With over 150 costumes including 40 newly added ones just for the Los Angeles version this is an »

The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

30 September 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

170 Days until Oscars: Brody & Dreyfuss

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

170 is the amount of days by which Adrien Brody (The Pianist) narrowly defeated Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl) to become the Youngest Best Actor winner ever. Do you think both of them deserved their wins?

Adrien Brody (29) and Richard Dreyfus (30) are the 2 youngest Lead Actor winners

1977 Best Actor 2002 Best Actor Woody Allen, Annie Hall Adrien Brody, The Pianist Richard Burton, Equus Nicolas Cage, Adaptation Richard Dreyfus, The Goodbye Girl Michael Caine, The Quiet American Marcelo Mastroianni, A Special Day Daniel Day Lewis, Gangs of New York John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever Jack Nicholson, About Schmidt

 

The most hilarious thing about this statistic is that Adrien Brody is both the youngest Best Actor winner at 29 And the only twentysomething winner. Meanwhile "29" is actually the most common age to win Best Actress. These eight women all accomplished it and none of them were anywhere close to making a "youngest" list.

Not So Fast On ‘Hey Ho, Let’s Go’

28 August 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

I’m seeing all these trade dispatches on a movie about The Ramones with Martin Scorsese, which came out of a Billboard story where the family mentioned various possible projects timed to the seminal punk band’s 40th anniversary. Here’s the truth: there is no script. Scorsese has an attachment, but he has also so many obligations, he might want to be sedated.

Scorsese is posting the pilot he directed for the HBO ’70s rock and roll series he’s doing with Mick Jagger and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter; he next directs Silence, an adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel that has taken Scorsese about two decades to finally get to, and is the kind of movie that takes a lot of time. He’s also going to direct the pilot for Ashecliffe, the Dennis Lehane-scripted series based on Shutter Island. Then there are many other projects he’s percolating, »

Miramax secures $250m re-finance

21 August 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Chairman Thomas J Barrack Jr said the movie reflected “stability and maturity” as top brass seek to grow the development and production business.

The securitisation included the issuance of a $250m aggregate principal amount of 3.34% of film library asset-backed notes offering due in 2026, as well as a $25m revolving credit facility.

It is understood the Santa Monica-based company has no immediate plans to use the credit funds until required.

“This refinancing reflects the stability and maturity of Miramax as an operating company and represents the next step in the company’s evolution,” said Barrack Jr.

“We appreciate that the market recognises Miramax’s quality of content, combined with the consistency, length, diversity and credit quality of contractual income streams, and we look forward to putting these additional funds to work as we grow new production in line with the powerful Miramax brand.”

Barclays served as the sole structuring advisor and sole bookrunner for the securitisation as well »

Elderly action heroes and Hollywood age issues

14 August 2014 12:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of The Expendables 3 leads James to the conclusion that, when it comes to being an action hero, age is just a number...

"All I have produced before the age of 70 is not worth taking into account. At 73 I have learned a little... a little about the real structure of nature, of animals, plants, trees, birds, fishes and insects. In consequence when I am 80, I shall have made still more progress. At 90 I shall penetrate the mystery of things; at 100 I shall certainly have reached a marvellous stage; and when I am 110, everything I do, be it a dot or a line, will be alive." - Hokusai, the Japanese artist who painted the famous 'Great Wave off Kanagawa' and kept on creating astounding art until his death at the age of 88.

Robin Williams moved from commercial productions to prestige cinema with ease

11 August 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I had to stop and think about it. When was the first time I encountered Robin Williams? I'm pretty sure it was reruns of "Mork & Mindy" at a young age, if not the boisterous Oscar-nominated performance he gave in Barry Levinson's "Good Morning, Vietnam." By then he had already dazzled countless audiences in "The World According to Garp." Whatever it was, like so many, it was the start of, as his widow noted in a release, "countless moments of joy and laughter" he would deliver for the next three decades of my life. And now, he's gone. It soon became erratic late night appearances with David Letterman and the like, as the movies flowed in. Terry Gilliam's "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen," for instance, or another, much more timid Oscar-nominated performance in Peter Weir's "Dead Poets Society." He continued to spotlight range and versatility in Penny Marshall »
