Oscars Best Picture: 7 Underdogs That Could Benefit from Preferential Ballot

12 December 2014 2:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

All hope isn’t lost for “American Sniper.” Even though the Bradley Cooper drama about Navy Seal Chris Kyle hasn’t leapt into the award season race yet, it still holds a stealth advantage as it enters Oscar balloting — passionate fans.

The Golden Globe nominees (announced on Thursday) and SAG Awards (Wednesday) don’t necessarily take passion into account. But the Academy Award nominating system for best picture, determined by a preferential ballot (that puts more “weight” on a film ranked as No. 1 by a voter), can help out a movie like “Sniper,” which has ardent groupies. In recent years, films such as “A Serious Man,” “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” “District 9,” “Tree of Life,” “Toy Story 3″ and “Amour” were nominated in the top Oscar category because their fans loved them in a fanatical way.

Here are seven filmsthat could benefit from a similar surge this year.

1. “Unbroken »

SAG Nominations: Biggest Snubs and Surprises

10 December 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Screen Actors Guild nominations are often a sign of who will be invited to the Oscars, since actors constitute the largest group of Academy voters. After Wednesday morning’s nomination announcement, that could mean good news for “Birdman” (which picked up four noms, more than any other film), Jake Gyllenhaal (“Nightcrawler”), and Jennifer Aniston (“Cake”), and not great news for Jessica Chastain (overlooked for “A Most Violent Year”) and “Selma” (Paramount didn’t send out screeners in time). On the TV side, the nominees don’t necessarily create momentum for the Emmys, but they can’t hurt in building buzz for freshman shows like Showtime’s “The Affair” and Cinemax’s “The Knick,” which were shut out. Here are the biggest snubs and surprises in both TV and film.

Snub: Jessica Chastain, “A Most Violent Year.”

Chastain has had a busy year with roles in “Insterstellar” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, »

SAG Awards nominations preview: 'Boyhood, Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore, ...'

9 December 2014 10:25 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Not surprisingly, the Screen Actors Guild Awards is the best precursor of the lineup in the four acting categories at the Oscars. Last year, 14 of the 20 SAG nominees went on to reap Oscar bids and it foresaw all four winners. In 2012 it also went 14 for 20 while in 2011 it was 17 out of 20. In both of those years, three of the four SAG champs took home Oscars.  However, the guild is less reliable when predicting Best Picture. In the 19-year history of the Best Ensemble award, that winner went on to take Oscar's top prize only nine times. However, SAG did presage two of Oscar's biggest upsets: "Shakespeare in Love" over "Saving Private Ryan" in 1998, and "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain" in 2005. Below, our predictions for Wednesday's nominees in the five film races. Our forecasted champs are in gold while potential spoilers for nominations are in italics.  -Break- Click on each category title to be t. »

It's a Linky Monday

8 December 2014 7:45 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to offer you a news link roundup to kick off this week.

ComingSoon Is it really possible all press materials (save this offical photo) for Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd starring Carey MulliganMatthias Schoenaerts have gone unremarked here at Tfe? Let's fix that by staring at this gorgeous poster.

Marvel In case you missed it last week, Marvel offered some more casting news for their ever-expanding universe, including Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones in its upcoming Netflix series and Benedict Cumberbatch (officially!) as Doctor Strange in the eponymous film due November 2016.

SlashFilm In other franchise news, Roberto Orci will no longer be directing Star Trek 3 which I'm sure is good news for some other first time white male director looking to make his big break. I kid! But only sort of.

Will New York champ 'Boyhood' win over Los Angeles film critics too?

6 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

On Monday, the New York Film Critics Circle went with "Boyhood" for Best Picture. Will its West Coast counterpart, the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn., endorse this decision on Sunday when its members meet to decide on the best of the year? -Break- Related: Complete list of New York Film Critics Circle Awards winners The two groups of movie scribes rarely agree. The La critics began handing out awards in 1975 but it took till 1979 till they went with the same film -- eventual Oscar champ "Kramer vs. Kramer" -- as the New York crowd, which was formed in 1935. They have agreed 10 more times since: "Terms of Endearment' (1983), "Hannah and Her Sisters" (1986), "Goodfellas" (1990), "Schindler's List" (1993), "Leaving Las Vegas" (1996), "L.A.

Oscars: 12 Reasons ‘Boyhood’ Is the Frontrunner for Best Picture

5 December 2014 12:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the race for best picture of the year, the first three prizes were a draw between “Boyhood” (New York Film Critics Circle), “Birdman” (Gotham Awards) and “A Most Violent Year” (National Board of Review). But these scattered results only play to the advantage of “Boyhood,” Richard Linklater’s paean to growing up that was 12 years in the making. Here are 12 reasons why “Boyhood” will probably be the best picture winner at the Academy Awards next February.

(1) The Early Frontrunner Theory

In Oscar seasons with no late-breaking favorite, the early frontrunner wins by default (see 2006’s “The Departed,” 2009’s “The Hurt Locker” and 2012’s “Argo”). “It’s a s—ty year for the Oscars, like it was a s—ty year at the box office,” says a member of the Academy, talking about this year’s race. The fact that “Unbroken,” “Selma” and “The Imitation Game” are all opening at around the same time, »

Artsploitation Sees North American Distrib Life for ‘Death in Buenos Aires’ (Exclusive)

4 December 2014 11:44 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Buenos Aires – In a deal sealed at Ventana Sur, Raymond Murray’s Artsploitation Films has acquired from Vicente Canales’ Film Factory Ent. North American rights to Natalia Meta’s feature debut, thriller “Death in Buenos Aires.”

Artsploitation plans a theatrical release in the spring of 2015, with a DVD and VOD release in the fall.

Produced by Veronica Cura, whose credits also include Cannes Camera d’Or winner “Las Acacias,” and released in Argentina by Bernardo and Paula Zupnik’s Distribution Co, “Death” over-indexed on home territory, punching $2.4 million from a May 15 release. That B.O. trawl currently ranks as the fifth highest gross for an Argentine title this year.

“Death” stars Mexican Academy Award nominee Demien Bichir (“A Better Life”), who plays a hardened detective teamed with a cocky rocky cop (played by Chino Darin, the son of Ricardo Darin), to solve the murder of a member of Argentina’s moneyed classes. »

5 Takeaways from the First Week of Awards

2 December 2014 4:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The awards race went into overdrive this week with the first announcements of winners on Dec. 1 and 2. The New York Film Critics Circle saluted “Boyhood” as best picture; “Birdman” won at the Gotham Awards; “A Most Violent Year” got the nod from the National Board of Review. (Each organization also honored their favorite film in other categories as well.)

The results are all over the map, but the prizes so far reveal a few conclusions about the still-young Oscar race.

1) These awards are useful: At this time of year, attention from a voting org is like a neon arrow for Oscar voters saying, “See this film before you cast your ballot.” They’re also helpful to strategists, who get an idea of how people outside the studio are sizing up the various contenders. Aside from the buzzed-about films, the awards boost the profile of some underdogs, such as “A Most Violent Year »

Team Fyc: The Homesman for Cinematography

2 December 2014 9:01 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Editor's Note: For the next ten days or so as awards season heats up, we'll be featuring individual Team Experience Fyc's for various longshots in the Oscar race. We'll never repeat a film or a category so we hope you enjoy the variety of picks. And if you're lucky enough to be an AMPAS, HFPA, SAG, Critics Group voter, take note! Here's Manuel to kick things off. 

Rodrigo Prieto is one of the best cinematographers around. From the gritty urban landscapes of Amores Perros and the color-coded visual triptych that is Babel to the painterly tableaus of Frida and the kinetic Iranian vistas of Argo, Prieto has been slowly amassing quite the filmography, working with the likes of Alejandro González Iñarritú, Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, Pedro Almodóvar, Oliver Stone, and Ang Lee. It was the first collaboration with that two-time Academy Award winning director that netted Prieto his first Oscar »

The 50 Definitive Relationship Dramas: 10-1

1 December 2014 5:16 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. Letter from an Unknown Woman (1948)

Directed by: Max Ophuls

To be honest, the relationship at the center of “Letter from an Unknown Woman” barely even exists. It’s more of a longing from one side than the other. But the ways Ophuls structures the film qualifies it for this list. For the run of the story, we hear a voiceover, explaining the moments in these two characters’ lives. Lisa (Joan Fontaine) is a teenager who becomes obsessed with a pianist who lives in her building named Stefan (Louis Jordan). She only meets him once, but maintains her love for him. After her mother announces they will be moving, Lisa runs away, but sees Stefan with another woman. Lisa becomes a respectable woman and is proposed to by a young, family-focused military officer, whom she turns down, still in love with Stefan, a man she has barely met. Years later, she »

N.Y. Critics Give Boost to ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Immigrant’ and More (Analysis)

1 December 2014 12:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Monday’s New York Film Critics Circle winners are significant, not only because the announcement is the first of the season, but also due to the uncertainty surrounding this year’s Oscar race. They also offer validation for “Boyhood” (best pic, director and supporting actress Patricia Arquette), already considered a strong contender, but some of the biggest beneficiaries (and surprise winners) on Monday are “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Whiplash,” “Mr. Turner” and “The Immigrant.”

Even these early honors can exert an influence a voter’s ballot.

Those four films, winning in screenplay, acting and cinematography categories, could also affect Oscar’s wide-open picture race, but there’s still plenty more critics and guild awards to hand out over these next few months.

Arguably the most useful honors of the season for studio honchos are the National Board of Review (whose results are announced Tuesday), the AFI Awards (Dec. 8) and the Golden Globe noms (Dec. »

New York Film Critics Circle votes 'Boyhood' best film of the year

1 December 2014 10:21 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The New York Film Critics Circle held its annual vote today, "first!" among the critics groups to announce and firing the latest in a series of "starting guns" for the season. (Truly, where does it all really "begin" anymore?) And the big, hardly surprising winner? Richard Linklater's "Boyhood." The 12-year opus also took awards for Best Director and Best Supporting Actress. The only other film to land multiple wins was "The Immigrant," interestingly enough, which shared Marion Cotillard in the Best Actress arena with "Two Days, One Night" and also took the organization's cinematography prize. Curiously lost in the mix was Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," but it's entirely possible the La critics right that ship next week. I'm expecting Best Film and Best Actor wins there, but we'll see. Ditto Ava DuVernay's "Selma," which was beloved by a number of critics but still didn't find room. In »

First Look: Jake Gyllenhaal is a Buff and Bloody Boxer in 'Southpaw'

28 November 2014 7:12 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's no doubt that Jake Gyllenhaal is enjoying a career boom much in the same fashion that Matthew McConaughey has over the past few years. And just like McConaughey underwent a drastic transformation for his Oscar-winning role in Dallas Buyers Club, the Nightcrawler and Brokeback Mountain star has done something similar, but on the complete opposite end of the body spectrum. A first look photo from Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama Southpaw has just emerged, in which Gyllenhaal plays Junior Middleweight Champion Billy “The Great” Hope, and as you can see, the Oscar nominee is absolutely ripped. Look below! Here's the first photo from Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw from Deadline (obviously): On Gyllenhaal's performance, Fuqua said: "Jake is going to change how people see him. I had him training twice a day in the boxing ring, he did two-a-days seven days a week. I pretty much had him with »

Second Opinion – The Homesman (2014)

26 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Homesman (2014)

Directed by Tommy Lee Jones

Starring Tommy Lee JonesHilary Swank, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter, John Lithgow, Hailee Steinfield, Jesse Plemons, Tim Blake Nelson, William Fitchner, Meryl Streep

Synopsis:

Ably independent yet desperate to nurture a family, Mary Bee Cuddy agrees to transport three women maddened by trauma across the country, enlisting the help of an aged, stubborn drifter along the way.

Despite what Tommy Lee Jones might want you to think, his new film, The Homesman, is definitely a western.  And thank goodness, for the genre has been sorely lacking in reinforcements in recent years.  It’s long been a favourite genre of mine, from Peckinpah to The Coen Brothers, Leone to Tarantino, but if you were to sieve through, say, the last ten years for decent entries (excluding hybrids like Cowboys & Aliens or an Aussie western like The Proposition), what have you got?  True Grit? »
