MIPDOC basking in new spotlight

2 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CANNES -- Documentaries often are considered the poor stepchild of the sexier genres of fiction, show and reality TV, but with recent nonfiction efforts as varied as March of the Penguins, Super Size Me and Grizzly Man doing bang-up boxoffice, interest in docus from distributors and broadcasters alike is at an all-time high. That explains in part the busy buzz in the lobby of Cannes' Carlton Hotel, which this weekend played host to MIPDOC, the documentary showcase that kick-starts MIPTV, the annual Spring television market. Previous MIPDOCs have been staid affairs with all the flash and glamour of a Tupperware sales convention. This year, organizers Reed Midem tried to jazz things up with a focus on high-end docus and events designed to showcase the best in nonfiction from around the world. »

Four films took home two honors each at the Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Feature winner Brokeback Mountain. The heavy Oscar favorite also nabbed Best Director for Ang Lee (also Oscar nominated ), and the acting winners were also four people who will be attending the Academy Awards on Sunday: Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote), Felicity Huffman (Transamerica), Matt Dillon (Crash), and Amy Adams (Junebug). Winning two alongside Brokeback were Capote (Best Male Lead and Screenplay), Transamerica (Best Female Lead and First Screenplay), and Crash (Best Supporting Male and First Feature). Also taking home awards were the aforementioned Junebug, Good Night, and Good Luck (Cinematography), Paradise Now (Foreign Film), and in a bit of surprise, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, which bested Grizzly Man for the documentary award. Sadly, the most nominated film, The Squid and the Whale, walked away with nothing.

Werner Herzog is bulletproof

7 February 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- German writer-director Werner Herzog, who’s documentary Grizzly Man was touted as the cream of the crop at the Sundance Film Festival last year, was shot during an interview with the BBC’s Mark Kermode by a sniper with an air rifle. His reaction? ‘Oh, someone is shooting at us. We must go.’ It gets better. Kermode said afterwards ‘He had a bruise the size of a snooker ball, with a hole in it. He just carried on with the interview while bleeding quietly in his boxer shorts.’ Even better is Herzog’s comment ‘It was not a significant bullet. I was not afraid.’ Sister Mary Francis!!! My knees buckle at the mere high-pitch droning sound of a freakin’ cicada on a balmy summer afternoon!!! This guy’s deflecting bullets with his Teeth!!! As you may or may not recall, The Great Herzog was also the first person at »

Brokeback Takes Directors Guild Award

29 January 2006 | IMDb News

It was yet another victory for Brokeback Mountain as Ang Lee won the Directors Guild Award for the seemingly Oscar-bound film. Lee bested fellow nominees George Clooney (Good Night, and Good Luck), Paul Haggis (Crash), Bennett Miller (Capote) and Steven Spielberg (Munich) for the honor; it was also Lee's second DGA Award, as he had previously won in 2000 for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It's yet another in a long line of Brokeback victories, as the film was the big winner at the Golden Globes (taking home four awards) and recently nabbed the Producers Guild of America award, as well as numerous critical honors. The DGA win gives Brokeback and Lee a solid lead in the Oscar race, as only six of the DGA's winners since 1949 have not won an Academy Award -- in fact, Lee's Crouching Tiger win was one of the exceptions, as the Best Director Oscar in 2000 went to Steven Soderbergh for Traffic. Academy Award nominations will be announced Tuesday. The DGA also gave Clint Eastwood (last year's winner for Million Dollar Baby) a Lifetime Achievement Award, and picked Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) for their documentary award, though surprisingly, the film didn't made the short list for the Best Documentary Oscar. The DGA also gave out awards for television -- here's the entire list of winners: Feature Film: Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain Documentary: Werner Herzog, Grizzly Man Dramatic TV series: Michael Apted, Rome Comedy TV series: Marc Buckland, My Name Is Earl Television movie: Joseph Sargent (Warm Springs) and George C. Wolfe (Lackawanna Blues) Reality TV show: Tony Croll (Three Wishes) and J. Rupert Thompson (Fear Factor) Musical variety show: Matthew Diamond, Great Performances: Dance in America - Swan Lake with American Ballet Theater Daytime drama: Owen Renfroe, General Hospital Children's programming: Chris Eyre, Edge of America Commercials: Craig Gillespie Lifetime Achievement Award: Clint Eastwood »

Iraq war films among DGA docu nominees

18 January 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Directors Guild of America announced the nominees Wednesday for its documentary award, including two that examine aspects of the war in Iraq. The nominees are Kief Davidson and Richard Ladkani for The Devil's Miner, Werner Herzog for Grizzly Man, Sean McAllister for The Liberace of Baghdad, Rupert Murray for Unknown White Male, and Brent Renaud and Craig Renaud for Off To War: Welcome to Baghdad. "The best documentary filmmaking provides a look inside a particular place or time and leaves us feeling like we've been transported to it, as a real eyewitness," DGA president Michael Apted said. "These talented filmmakers have made provocative and challenging movies that demonstrate why audiences are increasingly attending and why distributors are releasing more documentary films theatrically." The winner will be announced at the 58th annual DGA Awards show on Jan. 28 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. »
