L.A. Film Critics Assn. toasts 'Sideways' as year's best

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

Lifting a glass of vintage pinot noir in a celebratory toast, the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. on Saturday hailed Fox Searchlight's Sideways as its favorite film of the year. Alexander Payne's sad and funny but always sagacious coming-of-middle-age tale about the misadventures of two male friends in California wine country was voted best picture of 2004. The film collected five awards, including Virginia Madsen and Thomas Hayden Church as best supporting actress and best supporting actor. Payne, who two years ago claimed the L.A. Film Critics' best picture prize for About Schmidt, was honored as best director and shared the best screenplay award with his longtime collaborator, Jim Taylor, for their adaptation of a novel by Rex Pickett. The critics chose Liam Neeson as best actor for his performance as the redoubtable sex researcher Alfred Kinsey in Bill Condon's biopic Kinsey. The runner-up was Paul Giamatti from Sideways. Imelda Staunton was named best actress for the role as a working-class mum and backroom abortionist in 1950s Britain in Mike Leigh's Vera Drake. Julie Delpy came in second in voting for Before Sunset. »

Hawke Drinks Alone

22 August 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Newly single Ethan Hawke stunned onlookers at Manhattan's Trailer Bar last Sunday by spending most of the night "downing drinks" alone. The Before Sunset hunk - who separated from wife Uma Thurman last year - caused raised eyebrows as he consumed beverage after beverage at the bar in the city's trendy Chelsea district. And onlookers were even more stunned when, later that night, he phoned a mystery woman and begged her to join him. The lady obliged and, according to Page Six.com, the couple put on a lusty display and drank solidly until the bar closed. »

Hawke Parties It Up in Los Angeles

23 July 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Single hunk Ethan Hawke proved he's getting over his split from Uma Thurman by partying it up in Los Angeles with a mystery brunette. The Before Sunset actor - who separated from Thurman in September last year - flew out of the movie capital to attend a script reading but was soon at the city's Sunset Marquis Hotel with Dead Poet's Society pal Josh Charles. And, as the two men enjoyed a boozy night out together, they were joined by two mystery brunettes who accompanied them back to Hawke's one-bedroom bungalow after the bar closed. The party finally broke up at 5am when the two women were spotted leaving Hawke's property before he headed back to New York to watch a performance of Much Ado About Nothing in Central Park. »

Hawke Marriage Meltdown Inspired 'Sunset' Script

9 July 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ethan Hawke's shock split from wife Uma Thurman inspired the bittersweet musings of his character Jesse in eagerly-anticipated sequel Before Sunset. According to director Richard Linklater, when he, Hawke and leading lady Julie Delpy got together to collaborate on the screenplay, the Training Day hunk was aiming to "blur the line between performer and character". And Linklater admits he found the plot, in which Jesse tells old flame Celine how he is trapped in a loveless marriage because of his children, "scary". Linklater explains, "It was a little scary. Current events had caught up with us. To Ethan's credit, I think it informed the making of the film. It definitely informed some of his feelings." »

L.A. film fest cultivates 'Garden State'

6 May 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Los Angeles Film Festival will celebrate its 10th annual run June 17 by unspooling Zach Braff's directorial debut, Garden State. Also handpicked for the festival roster is a centerpiece showing June 23 of Richard Linklater's Before Sunset, starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, and a closing-night gala June 26 featuring Fox Searchlight's The Clearing, with Robert Redford and Helen Mirren. Garden State stars Braff, Natalie Portman and Peter Sarsgaard in the story of a guy (Braff) who comes home to attend his mother's funeral only to reunite with old acquaintances who help him rediscover his life. Sunset casts Hawke and Delpy as strangers who met by chance in Vienna nine years earlier only to cross paths again in Paris. Clearing revolves around Wayne and Eileen Hayes (Redford and Mirren), who have their seemingly perfect life disrupted when Wayne is kidnapped. »
