Watch how Spike Jonze movies create the atmosphere of a fairytale

6 March 2015 7:41 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Are you curious about how director Spike Jonze frames his films? How his moments can become both filled with reality and fantasy? It seems like the director has a knack for keeping the audience balanced between both realms.

In a new video essay, Jacob Swinney shows what makes Jonze’s four feature films (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation., Where the Wild Things Are, and Her) so special and how they create the belief of fantasy within a very real world. The essay focuses on Jonze’s use of lens flares, floating camera movement, centered framing, and wide-angle close-ups, and how they help the create this atmosphere that make his film seem both real and fantastical.

It also takes the time to look at some of the shots that made each of these films unique and how he has started to shift his atmosphere from the more realistic aesthetic of Being John Malkovich »

It’s Been 17 Years Since American Actors Have Swept the Oscar’s Acting Categories

12 February 2015 10:17 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

On any given year, the four acting winners are usually a mix of American and non-American actors, but this year could see all four acting awards go to American actors for the first time in 17 years.

If Michael Keaton beats Eddie Redmayne for lead actor and the current projected frontrunners — supporting actress nominee Patricia Arquette, supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons and lead actress nominee Julianne Moore — also win, it will be the first time since 1998 that all of the acting awards were given to American actors. (It will also be the second time in 77 years that all of the winners have been 46 or older.)

In contrast, the last time all four awards went to non-American actors was in 2008, when Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Javier Bardem and Tilda Swinton all won.

Since 1980, there have been eight instances where American actors were awarded all four acting Oscars. »

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 »
