Film Review: 'Au Revoir Les Enfants'

3 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★ William Faulkner once made the sage point that "the past is never dead. It's not even past." Louis Malle's Golden Lion winner Au Revoir Les Enfants (1987) is a Second World War-set film very much guided in spirit by the Us novelist's musing on the febrile relationship between memory, time and individual and collective histories. For years the director only ever discussed a childhood experience with an older brother, who was also there to bear witness. As with Roman Polanski's The Pianist (2002) or even Spielberg's Schindler’s List (1994), filmmakers tackling the Holocaust have acknowledged that these delicate projects needed to be made at what felt like the appropriate moment.

The Precedent for an Eddie Redmayne or Michael Keaton Oscar Win

Managing Editor 

With Michael Keaton winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy and Eddie Redmayne winning for best actor in a drama, both men continue establishing themselves as the frontrunners in this year’s lead actor race at the Oscars.

Though not new to films, Redmayne starred in Oscar-nominated films such as Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2008) and Les Miserables (2012). His performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, however, propelled him to widespread acclaim and put him on the radar. He is one of four best actor nominees — along with Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steve Carell — to receive their first nomination this year.

For most of his career, Keaton was known for his comedic roles, such as Mr. Mom (1983) and Beetlejuice (1988), and for his turn as Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). These roles earned Keaton praise and »

Golden Globe Winners vs. Oscars: The 2015 Update!

12 January 2015 7:55 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In what is now a new and continuing tradition, the Golden Globe Awards have been revealed ahead of the Oscar nominations, which will be made public this Thursday. Of course, voting for the Oscar nominations was closed before the awards were revealed so don't think last night's wins will have any effect on the nominees. But this isn't an article designed to look at nominations, though we'll certainly get into a little of that. Instead we're looking at what chance last night's Globe winners have at winning the Oscar based on the recent Globe vs. Oscar history. This post serves as my ninth installment of my "Globes vs. Oscars" column (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014) and we'll take a look at the past 30 years of Golden Globe winner history compared to the Oscars and see where last night's winners may gain an edge and where they most likely won't and we'll begin with the lead acting categories. »

J.K. Simmons Likely to Join Long Lineup of Oscar Winners With No Prior Nominations

7 January 2015 7:55 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Managing Editor 

J.K. Simmons’ portrayal of a vicious and relentless instructor at a music conservatory in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash has propelled Simmons as a frontrunner in the supporting actor Oscar race since the film’s premiere at Sundance. He received the Spotlight Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 3 and was nominated for a Golden Globe, which will be distributed on Jan. 11.

Simmons likely will earn his first Oscar nomination on Jan. 15 and if he wins on Feb. 22, he will become the eighth supporting actor in the last 14 years to win for his first nomination.

In the past 14 years, 50 percent (seven of 14) of supporting actors and 64 percent (nine of 14) of supporting actresses were never nominated before winning their first Oscar.

Last year’s winners, Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years a Slave (2013), were both first-time nominees. Leto »
