Five Possible Oscar Nominees Awaiting Distribution Deals

15 September 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

With Oscar season in full swing, the race is on for Oscar hopefuls. U.S. distributors help push their films and actors involved toward Oscar nominations, and some acquisition titles managed to find distributors in Telluride and Toronto. Ethan Hawke’s Seymour: An Introduction was sold to Sundance Selects at Telluride. Toronto continued to be a hotspot for acquisition titles looking to secure deals. Some films that inked deals include Chris Rock’s Top Five (Paramount), Chris EvansBefore We Go (RADiUS), Still Alice (Sony Pictures Classics) and Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young (A24); there are still a number waiting in the wings, though. Here are five actors who could possibly score an Oscar nomination if their films are picked up by distributors:

Octavia Spencer and Kevin Costner (Black and White)

Oscars news: Is Julianne Moore ('Maps to the Stars') in or out as Best Actress?

2 September 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

 Sasha Stone takes a look at the Best Actress race in the context of the potential absence of Cannes champ Julianne Moore ("Maps to the Stars"). "I personally think the role and her overdue status give her the stuff to drive it home to a win (think: Charlize Theron in 'Monster'). I also think it’s premature to assume the Oscar voters are too soft to handle a movie like this. Most of them came of age during Ken Russell and Robert Altman, for chrissakes." Awards Daily -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube Host John Horn sits down with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu to talk about "Birdman." Among the tasty tidbits, this on casting Michael Keaton: "I always have considered Michael Keaton to be a phenomenal actor because he navigates drama and comedy. He has been the bad guy, the funny guy, »

29 August 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We woke up to some amazing Nintendo news this morning, as they announced a slew of new things (including release dates, hardware, and more) during a Nintendo Direct session.  We'll be covering all of the news here on Cinelinx, but let's start off with some of their Holiday plans, which includes pricing of the amiibos and some new Wii U bundles to take home.  Come inside to check it out!

Charlize Theron Talks Aging Gracefully, Blasts 20-Year-Olds

27 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Charlize Theron has some strong opinions about aging! The blonde beauty recently chatted with Women's Wear Daily, where she opened up about aging in Hollywood, and the treatment of women versus men as they get older. When asked how the "Monster" star would describe womanhood, Theron says it's about finding "strength" in sexuality.  "I think that women find their strength and power in their sexuality, in their sensuality within, [through] getting older and being secure within that," she said. Videos: Watch Charlize Theron and Josh Hartnett Play Charades!"It’s ironic that we’ve built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f--kin’ concept about wisdom, what life is about, having a few relationships below [their] belt and feeling hardships, to grow into [their] skin and feel confident within [themselves] and to feel the value of who [they] are, not because of a man or because of something like that.

Mad Max: Fury Road Comic-Con Trailer Released

27 July 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of director/writer George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters, and you can get a taste of the post-apocalyptic mayhem to come with the first trailer that was originally unveiled yesterday at Comic-Con.

Film Review: ‘A’ for Effort, ‘C’ for Execution in Dwayne Johnson’s Unmemorable ‘Hercules’

26 July 2014 5:47 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I empathize with Dwayne Johnson and simultaneously don’t. Most people never get rich and famous once, let alone twice. Sure, it’s hard to re-brand people from the wrestling superstar you once were into the dramatic action star you’re trying to become, but your past is forever immortal.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Like Jackie Chan wants to be viewed as a dramatic actor instead of a funny karate man, so too does Dwayne Johnson want to drop his wrestling image as The Rock and be taken seriously as a real actor. The problem is he’s all over the place. It’s hard to be Hercules when you’re being remembered as campy in films like “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” and the upcoming “Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon”.

This isn’t having actor’s range. Having real range is Charlize Theron successfully branching out with a challenging role in “Monster. »

It’s almost over folks. Yes, this penultimate time around I’ll be tackling one of the very biggest of the big eight categories, one of the only two left.

You all mostly just want to see the lists that I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good people there in that particular regard once again. All you have to do is just be patient over the next paragraph or two and you’ll get the goods front and center for your reading pleasure… »

Role Playing: A conversation with actor Branko Tomovic

1 July 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Branko Tomovic about what attracted him to acting, Blue Velvet, Fury and portraying a historical figure he idolises…

“My parents came as immigrants to Germany from Serbia, so working meant having a job that pays the bills,” remarks Branko Tomovic who has appeared in The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), Inbetween (2008) and Believe the Magic (2012).   “I have been interested in art and films ever since I was a child but doing anything artistic as a job wasn’t really heard of. I can’t really blame them as every parent wants a secure life for their child.  It wasn’t that my parents were not supportive but more that they didn’t know any differently.  I have always been the black sheep in the family with everything that I did, so it was cool with me and have always done with my life what I thought was right.”  Tomovic attended an acclaimed acting school. »

She Works Hard for the Money: The Top 10 “Loose” Women in Film

22 June 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Feminine roles in cinema vary as there are different types of female empowerment displayed on the big screen. The same can be said for the showcasing the vulnerability of women in the movies as well. From motherhood to savvy businesswomen women have been either represented with integrity or misrepresented with exploitative intent.

One of the most explosive roles for women in motion pictures have been in the titillating realm of prostitution. Whether considered controversial, inspirational or observational the concept of women selling sex and demonstrating sensuality poses may ethical questions in cinema. Are movies that stress moral dilemmas with femininity and flesh-pedaling philosophies a challenging venture or easy pickings for sensational themes in films?

Whatever the case the prospect of fast females in film presents somewhat of a sociological/psychological experimentation. May it be through the lens of declaration, discovery or despair She Works Hard for the Money: The Top »
