‘Shame’ Screenwriter Abi Morgan Talks Ralph Fiennes’ ‘Invisible Woman’ Project, Joe Wright’s ‘Little Mermaid, ‘Suffragettes’ & More

17 December 2011 6:30 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Three of screenwriter Abi Morgan's projects were honored by Golden Globe nominations Thursday -- the first season of her much-acclaimed BBC miniseries "The Hour," as well as the lead actors from her films "Shame" and "The Iron Lady," Michael Fassbender and Meryl Streep. And Morgan is already hard at work on her next round of projects, including the second season of "The Hour," which is in the middle of shooting now. "It's amazing for us with 'The Hour,' because it's such a small audience, but it seems to have had a great effect," Morgan told The Playlist. Season two will jump ahead 10 months to 1957, when Hector Madden (Dominic West), Bel Rowley (Romola Garai), and Freddie Lyons (Ben Whishaw) find themselves covering the Cold War, the space race, and race relations with a new boss, Randall Brown, played by Peter Capaldi ("In the Loop").

The Artist leads the nominations for the 69th Golden Globes

17 December 2011 2:23 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The contenders for the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards have been announced earlier today by the Hollywood Foreign Press, with Michel Hazanavicius' silent drama The Artist leading the nominations with nods in six categories including Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Best Dirtector, Best Screenplay and Best Actor (Jean Dujardin).

The Golden Globes typically have a strong bearing on the nominees for the Academy Awards and George Clooney will certainly be hoping that's the case with nominations for Best Director and Best Screenplay (The Ides of March) in addition to Best Actor - Drama (The Descendants). Clooney will contest »

The 2011 Golden Globe Nominations

15 December 2011 10:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This year's Golden Globe nominations have been announced with The Weinstein Company's "The Artist" scoring the most nods with six. Combined with numerous other wins from various critics associations, the black-and-white silent film has become the clear front runner in the run-up to the Oscars.

Not far behind at the Globes are "The Descendants" and "The Help" which both scored five, while "The Ides of March," "Midnight in Paris" and "Moneyball" got four. All the above mentioned also got Best Picture nominations, joined by "War Horse" and "Hugo" in the drama category along with "50/50", "Bridesmaids" and "My Week with Marilyn" in the comedy/musical section. Also of note is that Ryan Gosling scored nominations for Best Actor in both drama ("The Ides of March") and comedy ("Crazy Stupid Love"). Big shockers were the lack of nominations for both "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close".

Men's fashion: the year in menswear

15 December 2011 9:34 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

You've got ankle flashing and Ryan Gosling, bomber jackets versus double-breasted and lots to think about when it comes to jumpers. 2011 has been a busy year in menswear. Simon Chilvers breaks it down.

Ankles, patterned jumpers and a feast of peas and sweetcorn. These are my three defining sartorial moments of 2011. Sort of. Let's deal with the food first. Rewind to January's menswear week in Paris and the Thom Browne show. The short-trouser wearing American designer staged a gloriously bonkers banquet where models, dressed a bit like Johnny Depp in a Tim Burton film, paraded around the table in all their finery. There was a techno soundtrack with someone chanting about food. It was a proper fashion moment, up there with the fashion desk's team air punch when the Queen wore yellow to the royal wedding - but that's another story. Now, you might look at the outfits from that »

2011-2012 Golden Globe Nominations, Analysis

15 December 2011 9:13 AM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the nominees for the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards.  Naturally, there were plenty of surprises.

Despite splitting the year’s best movies into “Comedy or Musical” and “Drama,” the top prizes have only matched the Academy’s “Best Picture” once in the last seven years (Slumdog Millionaire).  But this year may be a rare match.

The Artist, the buzzed-about nearly-silent film and odds-on favorite for the Oscar, received the most nominations with six, and it stands as the clear front-runner in the “Comedy or Musical” category.  (No Muppets?)

The Descendants is the other horse in the “Best Picture” race, and picked up five Globe nods.  The Help (this year’s The Blind Side) is also still in the mix with four, though I don’t expect the feel-good movie to be in the hunt by February.  Snubbed entirely is the teary »

69th Golden Globe Award Nominations

15 December 2011 9:01 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here they are... the first major movie and TV award nominations of 2011. The Golden Globes has always been a solid representation of what we might see for the Oscar nominations. The winners end up being a little different though. There are a few surprises on the list that I didn't expect to like Hugo, The Ides of March and War Horse being nominated for best picture. I just didn't think these films would get that big of a nomination. It is good to see that Rooney Mara got a nomination of best actress from her role in The Girl With the Drgon Tattoo, and Ryan Gosling for Best actor in the Ides of March. I'm not sure if they will win or not, but it's good to see them get a nomination. There were really a lot of fantastically great movies this year and it looks like it's going to be a fun reward season. »

2012 Golden Globe Nominations Announced

15 December 2011 6:53 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Award nominations were announced this morning from Beverly Hills, and once again it looks like Michel Hazanavicius' silent film The Artist is leading the way with a total of six nominations in the film categories, followed closely by The Descendants and The Help with five each. As always, there is some debate over what belongs in the Comedy or Musical category with My Week with Marilyn somehow sneaking in there, and they decided to go with 6 nominees in the Drama category, seemingly just so Steven Spielberg's War Horse wouldn't be left out. Speaking of Spielberg, I think one of the more interesting nominations is The Adventures of Tintin in Best Animated Film category considering that it was done with performance capture. Monster House was nominated back in 2006, but with Pixar's entry being pretty weak this year, it could be the first time a »
