Nicole Kidman’s Grace Kelly biopic goes from Cannes to Lifetime

8 April 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From the festival circuit to your couch on a lazy Thursday afternoon.

That is the course for Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco, which will sees it’s U.S. premiere on Lifetime after opening the Cannes Film Festival a year ago. Deadline reported the news on Tuesday.

While the film hit theaters (to tepid responses by critics) overseas, it had yet to open in American theaters. It was also in the midst of controversy after The Weinstein Company and director Olivier Dahan fought of cuts. Deadline mentions that it is unclear whether Lifetime will use the cut by Dahan or Weinstein’s. The director’s cut was used in the premiere at Cannes.

In an interview with Deadline at Sundance this year, Harvey Weinstein hinted at the possibility that the film could find life on TV rather than a theatrical run. “The script we signed on for was like The King’s Speech, »

Shocker: Weinstein's Cannes Opener 'Grace of Monaco' Goes to Lifetime

8 April 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Harvey Weinstein, who had closed a $5 million deal for U.S. rights to the $35 million "Grace of Monaco" starring Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman (TWC's "The Hours") in her seventh movie with him, as 60s era Grace Kelly, originally slated the film for November 2013 for an Oscar season run, promoting it at Cannes 2013, but then postponed it to spring 2014. Weinstein was furious when French filmmaker Olivier Dahan--who was looking to follow on the success of "La Vie En Rose," which had won an Oscar for Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf--booked it as the opening night movie at Cannes 2014 just ahead of its global release.  Watch: Nicole Kidman Talks 'Strangerland' and 'Grace of Monaco' (Video Interview) It was the wrong way to introduce a middlebrow melodrama that should never have had awards in its sights. In “Grace of Monaco,” Nicole Kidman is strong as poised Oscar-winning movie star Grace Kelly, who in 1962 faced the reality. »

12 Broadway Shows with Hollywood Connections in 2015

All the world is a stage. But what is on that stage these days, at least when it comes to the Great White Way, is increasingly likely to be either based on a movie, boast a movie star as the headliner or both. “The Audience” recently opened on Broadway to solid reviews as Helen Mirren once again stepping into the sensible shoes of Elizabeth II, the role that won her a 2006 Oscar in “The Queen,” which was also written by Peter Morgan. Directed by Stephen Daldry (“The Hours” and “Billy Elliot,” both the film and musical), the play offers a fly-on-the-wall perspective on Her Majesty’s private meetings with a parade of prime ministers through the years. Watch: Helen Mirren on Playing the Queen Again, and How Al Pacino Inspires Her April 2, David Hare’s “Skylight” – also directed by Daldry -- officially arrives with Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy as »

Ed Harris Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

13 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No, Ed Harris, did not throw a chair at Marcia Gay Harden while filming “Pollock,” he wants you to know.

“I didn’t throw it at her,” he says of the Hollywood urban myth. “I smashed it on the ground. She wasn’t quite getting to the point that she needed to and we had a really good relationship and it just got her adrenaline flowing and helped her out a little bit.”

Whether it was the flying furniture that prodded her along or his directorial savvy, Harris’ instinct was spot-on. The actor-cum-helmer of the 2000 biopic helped to propel Harden toward an Oscar for her supporting role as Lee Krasner, the acclaimed painter and long-suffering wife of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, who tragically died in a drunken driving accident.

Remembering Actress Wright: Made Oscar History in Unmatched Feat to This Day

4 March 2015 9:02 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright movies: Actress made Oscar history Teresa Wright, best remembered for her Oscar-winning performance in the World War II melodrama Mrs. Miniver and for her deceptively fragile, small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's mystery-drama Shadow of a Doubt, died at age 86 ten years ago – on March 6, 2005. Throughout her nearly six-decade show business career, Wright was featured in nearly 30 films, dozens of television series and made-for-tv movies, and a whole array of stage productions. On the big screen, she played opposite some of the most important stars of the '40s and '50s. It's a long list, including Bette Davis, Greer Garson, Gary Cooper, Myrna Loy, Ray Milland, Fredric March, Jean Simmons, Marlon Brando, Dana Andrews, Lew Ayres, Cornel Wilde, Robert Mitchum, Spencer Tracy, Joseph Cotten, and David Niven. Also of note, Teresa Wright made Oscar history in the early '40s, when she was nominated for each of her first three movie roles. »

23 February 2015 12:11 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It’s been a long, crazy ride. That seems to be a sentiment echoed every year as the Oscar season comes to a close, having seen so many contenders become pretenders, front-runners changing with the announcement of every new precursor, and records kept or broken. It’s hard to put into words just what this year truly meant, and only time will tell if the academy’s choices really were the right ones, but for now, here are some of the things that stuck out as highlights: -Break- 1. Julianne Moore has an Oscar … at last! “Far from Heaven.” “Boogie Nights.” “The Hours.” “The End of the Affair.” Those are just the films for which Julianne Moore lost at the Oscars. There’s also “Safe,” “Magnolia,” “Short Cuts,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Children of Men,” and any number of great performances she wasn’t »

Oscars: Julianne Moore wins Best Actress for 'Still Alice'

22 February 2015 8:57 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As all 29 of our Oscars Experts predicted, Julianne Moore won Best Actress for "Still Alice" on Sunday night. She played the title character, a linguistics professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease, a role that had already earned her a slew of awards: she won at the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice, SAG, and BAFTA Awards. -Break- This was Moore's fifth attempt at Oscar glory. She first contended in 1997 for her supporting role in "Boogie Nights" but lost to Kim Basinger ("L.A. Confidential"). Two years later, she reaped the first of her Best Actress bids for "The End of the Affair" but was edged out by Hilary Swank ("Boys Don't Cry"). And in 2002, she contended in both categories -- lead for "Far from Heaven" and supporting for "The Hours" -- but was defeated by Nicole Kidman ("The Hours") and Catherine Zeta-Jones ("Chicago"), respectively.

Julianne Moore Wins Oscar for Lead Actress

22 February 2015 8:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Julianne Moore has won the lead actress Academy Award for her understated performance in “Still Alice” as a sufferer of early onset Alzheimer’s disease.

Moore’s victory had been widely expected. She won over Marion Cotillard for “Two Days, One Night,” Felicity Jones for “The Theory of Everything,” Rosamund Pike for “Gone Girl” and Reese Witherspoon for “Wild.”

Moore portrayed a 50-year-old linguistics professor at Columbia U. forced to deal with a steady decline in her cognitive skills. She had dominated the field during the awards season, winning at SAG, Bafta, the Spirits and the Golden Globes.

It was the first Oscar for Moore, who was nominated four times between 1998 and 2002 for “Boogie Nights,” “The End of the Affair,” “Far From Heaven” and “The Hours.”

Moore noted in her acceptance at the Spirits that “Still Alice” notes that it was shot for $4 million in 23 days. “I brought my own bras and my own food, »

The Conversation: 2015 Oscar Predix: Still Julianne Moore… Best Actress Win in the Bag

20 February 2015 1:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Nominations: Best Actress

Marion Cotillard in “Two Days, One Night”

Felicity Jones in “The Theory of Everything

Julianne Moore in “Still Alice

Rosamund Pike in “Gone Girl

Reese Witherspoon in “Wild

Shoulda Been a Contender: Essie Davis for “The Babadook

The effective kernel at the supremely masterful The Babadook is the performance of Essie Davis. Genre films have long been left out of the awards mulch, but it would have been great to see the Academy stop padding out this category with nicely rounded yet milquetoast performances (Wild; The Theory of Everything).

Should Win: Julianne Moore for “Still Alice

It’s true—it’s a great performance that saves an otherwise square film from slipping into banality.

Could Win: None

Unfortunately, it seems there’s little room for surprise in this year’s Best Actress category.

Will Win: Julianne Moore for “Still Alice
