You Decide: Who will will Adapted Screenplay Oscar? 'Unbroken,' 'Gone Girl' ...?

13 September 2014 4:52 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Who will win the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay? You can now make your predictions in our prediction center. -Break- Oscar mystery: Could Clint Eastwood's 'American Sniper' be this year's 'Million Dollar Baby'? Films adapted from books tend to have the advantage in the Adapted Screenplay category. Five of the last 10 winners have come from novels: "The Descendants," "No Country for Old Men," "Precious," "Sideways," and "Slumdog Millionaire." Another three were adapted from nonfiction books: "The Social Network," "12 Years a Slave," and "Argo," which was based partly on the memoir by CIA agent Tony Mendez. Movies based on novels in this year's race include "Gone Girl," adapted by Gillian Flynn from her own best-selling mystery; "Inherent Vice," Paul Thomas Anderson's take on Thomas Pynchon's book; and &qu...' »

Oscar mystery: Could Clint Eastwood's 'American Sniper' be this year's 'Million Dollar Baby'?

12 September 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Nobody is talking about "American Sniper," which sits low in our predictions with 100/1 odds. To be fair, nobody has seen it yet, but that's also true of other films with better odds like "Unbroken" and "Gone Girl." Even sight unseen, "Sniper" may be worth taking seriously as a contender. It opens on Christmas Day and is directed by Clint Eastwood, who pulled off a last-minute Oscar ambush 10 years ago when "Million Dollar Baby" took the top prize. Could "American Sniper" do the same? -Break- Who got Best Actor Oscars boost from Tiff: Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, ...? For a while, 2004 seemed like the year Martin Scorsese would finally get his overdue first Oscar, for the Howard Hughes biopic "The Aviator," and that early momentum led to wins for the film at the Golden Globes, BAFTA Awards, and PGA Awards. But "Million Dollar Baby," which was filmed just a...' »

Oscars: Dust Settles On The Fall Festivals With No Clear Best Picture Front-Runner (Yet)

10 September 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In just a few days, the first barrage of the fall film festival season will be done. Toronto has a couple of days left, but basically everything has screened for press already, and a fair chunk of the corps are returning home, or heading to Fantastic Fest for karaoke and tacos (short of a "There Will Be Blood"-style surprise, don't expect too many awards contenders out of there). That means that the awards season has fallen into focus, with a number of the season's major contenders already out there. Compared to some years gone by, it feels like a relatively thin year in terms of true awards heavyweights. In the last ten years, only twice had we not seen the eventual Best Picture winner at one of the fall festivals by now—"Million Dollar Baby" in 2004, and "The Departed" in 2006. But this year, no obvious front-runner has really emerged. »

Priyanka Chopra redefines the term Shero!

8 September 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

She came, she boxed, she conquered – Priyanka Chopra in and as Mary Kom has delivered her career’s finest performance with critics all praise for the film, not to mention, the protagonist Priyanka Chopra who essays the role of the five time world champion and Olympic medalist Mary Kom, in her career’s most challenging performance this far.

The biopic directed by Omung Kumar took the highest female film opening despite the ongoing Ganesh festivities, an approximate 8+crores on Day-1, a feat no other actress-lead film has managed to achieved this far. Touted one of the finest female performances of all time, Priyanka Chopra redefines the term Shero – carrying the weight of the pugilist’s journey on her toned arms, proving yet again that she truly is one of most versatile actresses of our time, with critics unanimously all praise for her performance. While the industry has seen some stellar performances by leading ladies, »

'Homesman' Star Hilary Swank Stands Tall Amid Weak Best Actress Oscar Race

8 September 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was clear from chief Variety film critic Scott Foundas' brief introduction to the Hilary Swank tribute at the Telluride Film Festival that she could star in her own biopic, whose logline would be: "born in a trailer park in Nebraska, by the time she was 30, she had twice won the Oscar." Can she win another for Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman"? Famously, she and her mother drove to Los Angeles, and occasionally lived in their car while Hilary attended school and auditioned for roles.  Clips were shown: her breakout role as transgender Brandon Teena in "Boys Don't Cry"  (1999, nine years after her first TV credit, and five years after enacting the title role in "The Next Karate Kid"), an intense-yet-funny turn, wearing prominent braces, as a convenience-store clerk in 2003's "11:14"; reluctantly being taken on by boxing manager Clint Eastwood in 2004's "Million Dollar Baby"; encouraging a young black student in. »

Morgan Freeman Didn't Win an Oscar for His Favorite Role

8 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Acting isn't hard," Morgan Freeman told us when we interviewed him for his new movie "Dolphin Tale 2." But is that the truth or just humility? Frankly, it's hard not to believe the 77-year-old legend considering he so comfortably projects authority and confidence in his films. He's also racked up five Oscar nominations over an extraordinary career and collected one for "Million Dollar Baby," and that track record leads one to believe he's got acting down to a simple but sweet science. But does that mean he views his legendary roles with equal, detached regard? Definitely not, according to him. We talked with Freeman in Clearwater, Fl, about his favorite role (not Eddie "Scrap-Iron" Dupris in "Million Dollar Baby," for the record), the snappiest thing he ever got to wear on the big screen ("Armani"), and the perks of filming the "Dolphin Tale" series. "Dolphin Tale 2" opens in theaters September »

Toronto: Warner Bros Gets Thumbs-Up Verdict As ‘The Judge’ Opens Tiff With Emotion-Packed Drama

5 September 2014 12:06 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

“I feel like I was sucker-punched, but it was a happy punch,” Robert Downey Jr. told me after the Toronto Film Festival’s opening-night movie The Judge. At the Montecito restaurant after-party, the  star and his wife Susan Downey, who was one of the producers of the project, admitted they had not seen the film before in such a large venue as Roy Thomson Hall, where the October 10th Warner Bros release had its world premiere Thursday night.

Downey admitted to tearing up at least five times watching the film tonight. I sat near the cast and noticed that co-star Dax Shepard was a complete emotional mess the minute the lights came up and the audience stood to applaud. Susan Downey agreed with me that if audiences — particularly adult filmgoers who don’t necessarily rush to movies on the first weekend — show up to support the film it will mean »

Telluride: Hilary Swank Angles for Another Shot at Oscar With ‘The Homesman’

1 September 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

Hilary Swank already has two best actress Oscars on her shelf, for Boys Don’t Cry (1999) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), which is something that only 12 other women have ever been able to claim. But, having only just turned 40, she is not resting on her laurels. Since her second win, in 2005, she has pursued a number of projects that were clearly intended to be awards bait, but that failed to resonate with voters: The Black Dahlia (2006), Freedom Writers(2007), Amelia (2009) and Conviction (2010).

Telluride: Hilary Swank Enters the Oscar Race With the Western Classic 'The Homesman'

1 September 2014 12:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hilary Swank proved for the second time in her career that she can go up against one of the grand old masters of the screen and more than hold her own in The Homesman, a period piece from Roadside Attractions that debuted Aug. 31 in Telluride.  Last time she did this, it was opposite Clint Eastwood in Million Dollar Baby, and the movie won both of them Oscars (Swank for lead actress, Eastwood for picture and director). This time it’s opposite Tommy Lee Jones, who — like Eastwood — directed while also co-starring. The stars had some surprising

'You're Not You' Trailer Starring Hilary Swank

28 August 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While many weren't too familiar with Als (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease) before this summer, the hundreds of Ice Bucket Challenge videos helped spread awareness of this degenerative disease. Today, we have the first trailer for You're Not You, which stars Hilary Swank as Kate, a pianist who becomes stricken with Als.

Based on Michelle Wildgen's book, this drama follows Kate and her husband (Josh Duhamel) as they find the most unorthodox caretaker in young college student Bec (Emmy Rossum) as they both change each other's lives. Take a look at the first footage, along with two new photos from director George C. Wolfe's adaptation, co-starring Loretta Devine, Ali Larter, Jason Ritter and Marcia Gay Harden, arriving in theaters and VOD platforms October 10.

Review: Dark Israeli comedy 'The Farewell Party' finds humor in assisted dying

28 August 2014 1:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - When high schoolers Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash) successfully fix up a couple of single teachers in Amy Heckerling's seminal teen hit "Clueless", the pampered girls coo "Old people can be so sweet!" as the targets of their matchmaking begin to enjoy a tentative romance. The joke is on the naive teens; we're laughing at their blithely patronizing attitude towards their elders. Would that all films were as smart as Heckerling's Jane Austen revamp. There are far too many films that play aging for the wrong sort of laughs. They usually fall into two camps. For some, the idea of older people falling in love and having sex is seen is adorable and/or amazing. It's the same attitude that Dr Samuel Johnson brought to the table when discussing female preachers: "A woman preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is »

Off the Carpet: Eastwood crashes the season as Telluride gears up for another edition

18 August 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been an interesting run of films for director Clint Eastwood in the 10 years since his "Million Dollar Baby" crashed the 2004 Oscar party and ran away with the gold. I say "interesting" because, at least in awards season terms, it's been a run particularly notable for lots of revving but nothing that ever materialized as a significant player. Right after "Baby" it was the one-two punch of "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima" in 2006, a bold play for the then-75-year-old filmmaker. While developing an adaptation of John Bradley's book for the former, Eastwood felt a perspective from the Japanese side of the WWII equation was warranted, so he quickly developed the latter. And it was "Letters" that felt like it had more on its mind, yielding surprise (for some) nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, as well an Oscar for Best Sound Editing. »
