Sideways Dominates Golden Globe Nominations

13 December 2004 | IMDb News

On the heels of critics awards from both New York and Los Angeles, the indie comedy Sideways dominated this year's Golden Globe nominations with a field-best seven nominations. The Alexander Payne wine-country flick nabbed Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Score nominations along with nods for actors Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, and Virginia Madsen, making it the movie to beat at this year's Globes, though it's competing mainly in comedy categories. The heavyweight over on the dramatic side was Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, which was awarded with six nominations, including Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio (as Howard Hughes) and Best Supporting Actress for Cate Blanchett (as Katharine Hepburn). Million Dollar Baby, Finding Neverland, and Closer were right behind with five nominations apiece.

The man of the hour, however, was neither Payne nor Scorsese but Jamie Foxx, who received an unprecedented three nominations, for Ray, Collateral, and the TV movie Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story. Receiving little or no love from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were Spanglish (only a Best Score nomination) and The Passion of the Christ, which while ineligible for the Best Film . Drama award but allowed to compete in all other categories, was passed over entirely.

On the television side, the gals of Sex and the City, who were longtime Globe favorites, had to make room for some Desperate Housewives, as the ABC breakout hit scored five nominations (the best for any TV show), including four acting nods for its titular housewives (only Eva Longoria was left out in the cold). HBO scored big with TV movie The Life and Death of Peter Sellers and its perennial awards favorite The Sopranos, though Sex and the City only received two nods for its final season. The Golden Globes will be handed out on Sunday, January 16th, where Robin Williams is set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

'Sideways' glance: 7 noms leads Globes field

13 December 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Alexander Payne's Sideways, a tour through Southern California wine country in which two old friends come to terms with their lives, proved irresistible to the voters at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which rewarded the rueful comedy with seven Golden Globe nominations, announced Monday morning at the Beverly Hilton. Sideways, which earned a best comedy nom along with mentions for its actors Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen, dominated a crowded field for the 62nd annual Golden Globe Awards, which also saw the drama The Aviator score six nominations, while Closer, Finding Neverland and Million Dollar Baby took five nominations each. Jamie Foxx stood out from his fellow actors, earning three nominations: best actor in a comedy for his performance as the late musician Ray Charles in Ray, best supporting actor for his turn as an embattled taxi driver in the moody thriller Collateral and best performance by an actor in a miniseries or motion picture for Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story, an FX movie in which he played one of the founders of the L.A. Crips street gang. It was the first time a performer has collected three performance noms in a single year at the Globes. Hilary Swank hit a double, earning a film nomination as best actress in a drama for playing a young woman who enters the boxing ring in Million Dollar Baby and a TV nomination as best actress for a miniseries or motion picture for Iron Jawed Angels, a study of the suffragette movement. »

The choice of films, announced Sunday, is an eclectic group, ranging from critical favorites like Fox Searchlight's Sideways -- which also was chosen as the year's best picture over the weekend by the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. -- to such popular successes as Columbia Pictures' comic book-inspired Spider-Man 2 and Pixar/Buena Vista's animated hit The Incredibles. The AFI Awards, which are chosen by jury and are bestowed upon the creative ensemble behind each project, cited a number of other specialty division offerings: Focus Features' Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Seachlight's Kinsey and Fine Line/HBO Films' Maria Full of Grace. It found room for two studio features released earlier this year: DreamWorks/Paramount's Collateral, director Michael Mann's noirish thriller set in an L.A. taxicab; and Universal Pictures/Imagine Entertainment's Friday Night Lights, director Peter Berg's look at high school football in a small Texas town.

Pictures' Million Dollar Baby, Clint Eastwood's boxing drama. »

Finding Neverland Named Best Picture by National Board of Review

1 December 2004 | IMDb News

Clap if you believe in movie awards! This year's awards season got underway today with the National Board of Review's announcement of Finding Neverland as their choice for Best Film. However, it was the only award that the J.M. Barrie biopic picked up, as the erstwhile awards group, made up of film historians, students and educators, spread the wealth around generously, giving just one award to all movies except Sideways, which nabbed the Adapted Screenplay award and a Supporting Actor nod for Thomas Haden Church. Oscar shoo-in Jamie Foxx won Best Actor for Ray (the first of many such awards, no doubt), while Annette Bening was named Best Actress for Being Julia; Supporting Actress honors went to Laura Linney (Kinsey), and Closer won the group's ensemble acting award. In the directing categories, Michael Mann was named Best Director for Collateral, and Zach Braff won the Directorial Debut award for Garden State; the very original Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind picked up the Original Screenplay award. Other winners included The Sea Inside (Foreign Film), Born Into Brothels (Documentary), and The Incredibles (Animated Film). Interestingly, two of the year's most polarizing movies, The Passion of the Christ and Fahrenheit 9/11, both received the awkwardly-worded honor of "Special Recognition of Films that Reflect the Freedom of Expression," along with Conspiracy of Silence.

In addition to their year-end awards, the National Board of Review also names a top ten list for the year, led by their winner for Best Film. This year's list is (in order): Finding Neverland, The Aviator, Closer, Million Dollar Baby, Sideways, Kinsey, Vera Drake, Ray, Collateral, and Hotel Rwanda.

Lack of blockbusters hurts U.K. Sept. boxoffice

29 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

LONDON -- U.K. boxoffice admission figures for September hit 10.2 million this year, down 5.1% from the same period last year, according to figures released Friday by the Cinema Advertising Association (CAA). The fall is due to the small number of blockbusters released by distributors in September this year, the CAA said. But despite a slow start to the first half of 2004, the CAA figures indicate that total admissions for January through September now exceed 127.6 million, up 8.6% from the totals for the same period last year. Twentieth Century Fox's Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story laughed its way to £5.8 million ($10.6 million) during September. United International Pictures took second spot with Steven Spielberg's The Terminal checking in with £5.7 million ($10.4 million). In third place was Tom Cruise as a hit man in Michael Mann's Collateral which scoped £5.5 million ($10.1 million) during its release in September for UIP. »

Mixed-bag b.o. weekend; 'Shark' tops at $13.1 mil

26 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In fast-changing weekly turnovers, Shark Tale materialized again as the overseas boxoffice leader, while The Bourne Supremacy captured Germany, I, Robot went to the top in Italy, The Forgotten aroused Spain, Shall We Dance? frolicked in Australia, and Secret Window scared Japan. Among other titles (either in holdover or entering new territories) picking up a piece of the scattered action in an overcrowded market were Collateral, The Terminal and Alien vs. Predator. In addition, new entries are slowly entering the market as part of a buildup for the coming holiday season. DreamWorks' animated Shark Tale continued to benefit from midterm school holidays in the United Kingdom, where it held on to first place for a second session with $5.9 million (from 504 screens) for a market cume to date of $22.7 million, and also held strong in France with a $2.7 million (from 689) second weekend for a 12-day total of $7.3 million. The fish tale swallowed $13.1 million over the weekend from 2,998 screens in 18 countries, lifting the overseas gross to $77.3 million. »

Warners, DreamWorks stake flag on 'Island'

8 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Warner Bros. Pictures is buying a stake in The Island. The studio has closed a 50-50 co-production deal with DreamWorks for the project, which will star Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson for director Michael Bay. DreamWorks had been looking for a studio partner on the project, and sources said it came down to Warners and Paramount Pictures, with Warners winning out. DreamWorks had been on a streak of co-productions with Paramount, partnering on such recent projects as Collateral, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Paycheck and War of the Worlds. But DreamWorks has been in the co-production biz with Warners before on The Time Machine and A.I. Artificial Intelligence. The deal with Warners for The Island will see DreamWorks handle domestic distribution and Warners handle international, with both studios coughing up half of the budget, which sources estimate to be somewhere in the $100 million range. The Marc Haimes-shepherded project is due to head in front of cameras this month. Island centers on a "harvested being" who suddenly becomes self-aware and tries to escape the utopian facility where he and others are being kept. Caspian Tredwell-Owen penned the original version, with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci turning in a draft for producers Walter Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Ian Bryce. »

'Collateral' jumps to lead in lackluster early fall biz

5 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Collateral was the top scorer, Wimbledon headed the United Kingdom for a second weekend, and Shark Tale kept up a sturdy pace in early bows in a weekend at the overseas boxoffice that was typically lackluster for the early fall. A batch of new entries barely made it to the starting gate, but a number of holdover blockbusters and midbudget films added to their international cumes as they chugged along the international track. Bolstered by five new openings, including France, Collateral jumped to the front with a weekend total of $8.7 million from 1,853 screens in 12 countries, lifting its foreign gross to $36.8 million. The Tom Cruise starrer pushed The Village to second place ($8 million) ending the M. Night Shyamalan-directed film's five-week hold as the top offshore performer. Collateral hit the top of the chart in France with $3.7 million from 492 and registered $542,000 (from 51) in Belgium and $559,000 (from 87) in the Netherlands. Village, which reached an international cume of $115 million, held first place in Spain for a second weekend, taking in $2 million for a market total of $8.4 million. »
