30 November 2010 8:14 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Natalie Portman is going to get a stiff competition from Jennifer Lawrence at 2011 Independent Spirit Awards. The nominees for the annual awards dedicated to independent filmmakers have been announced on Tuesday, November 30, and both actresses were unraveled to be among those up for Best Female Lead.

29-year-old Natalie received the nomination for her portrayal of a ballet dancer in "Black Swan", while 20-year-old Jennifer got her nod for her role as a teen on a desperate search to find her missing father in "Winter's Bone". Both of them were nominated along with Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig, Nicole Kidman and Michelle Williams.

In addition to Natalie's acting nom, her psychological thriller "Black Swan" has nabbed three other nods. It is vying for Best Feature along with "Winter's Bone", "127 Hours", "Greenberg" and "The Kids Are All Right". Additionally, it also collected nomination for its director Darren Aronofsky and cinematographer Matthew Libatique.

I'm so glad that "Winter's Bone" has been receiving all the accolades. I love this film when it was shown in limited release last summer. The backwoods drama won big at the Gothams Awards winning Best Feature and Best Ensemble, and now, it dominated the Independent Spirit Awards with seven nominations including Best Feature, Director for Debra Granik, Screenplay for Granik and Anne Rosellini, Female Lead for Jennifer Lawrence, Supporting Female for Dale Dickey, Supporting Male for John Hawkes, and Cinematography for Michael McDonough. ("Winter's Bone" Movie Review)

"Winter's Bone" will compete against "127 Hours," "Black Swan," "Greenberg" and "The Kids Are All Right" for best picture.

Lbs. Trailer and Poster

16 March 2010 4:58 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Trailer and poster for Lbs. directed by Matthew Bonifacio from a story by Carmine Famiglietti have been released.

He is a 315-pound man obsessed with food. He lives a boring life with his parents in Brooklyn, and seems like nothing can move him.

Are you interested to hear more about the movie they already called “a very human story of self-realization” as well as “disarmingly natural, sincere and funny”? Ok, then, we’re presenting you Lbs!

Neil Perota (Carmine Famiglietti) is seriously overweight. At twenty-seven years old, he weighs over 300 pounds, and his life has no big sense but food and family. He even works for his father driving a school bus. That doesn’t sound funny at all, especially for a man of his age.

But soon, life is going to change for him. When he suffers a heart attack two days before his sister’s wedding, he is »
