Oscars 2017: All the Evidence That Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Will Be Completely Shut Out

Managing Editor

Martin Scorsese has been a force at the Oscars for decades now with nine films earning some sort of recognition by the Academy but his latest showing, Silence, is looking to be completely glanced over. There much evidence pointing to this happening — lack of precursor nominations, opening weekend box office numbers, domestic box office performance thus far, and critical evaluations. Let’s take a deep dive into these aspects and see if there’s any saving grace for Silence this awards season.

At this point, with the Academy currently voting for the Oscar nominations, signs are pointing to Silence getting completely get shut out. The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg list the film as a frontrunner in any category — including the categories Scorsese’s films have been nominated in before. Those are best picture, »

Potential snubs to consider in anticipation of the Academy Award nominations

16 January 2017 9:30 AM, PST | | See recent news »

As much as I’ve been spending the last few months (a full year, actually) really concentrating on who and what will be getting Oscar nominations, there’s another side to that coin. Namely, there’s always a few big snubs on nomination morning. The Academy Awards are notorious for random omissions, so next week will almost certainly be one or two. Today, I am going to be speculating on what those might be. Remember, these are just guesses on my part and there’s really no indicators that these will happen. For the moment, they’re just purely shots in the dark. We could be in for a morning filled with unexpected nominations, or perhaps a more conservative and widely predicted lineup. Anyway, let us now take a look at a handful of potential snubs that could be in the cards… Here are five big snubs to look out »

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ Dominates MLK Weekend as ‘Live by Night,’ ‘Monster Trucks,’ ‘Silence’ Collapse

16 January 2017 8:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox and Chernin Entertainment’s “Hidden Figures” dominated the domestic box office, topping charts for the second straight weekend after earning $26 million. The film’s message of empowerment and triumph over prejudice was amplified by the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

“This continues to be a movie for everyone,” said Chris Aronson, Fox’s head of domestic distribution. “It’s not just entertaining. It’s life affirming. It celebrates the triumph of the human spirit and that’s so important in these times.”

Hidden Figures” is a latecomer to the awards season race, but the film, which stars Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer as African-American scientists and mathematicians in the early days of the space program, ranks as one of the most successful dramas of 2016. So far, it has earned $60.4 million. That commercial success could translate into Oscar attention when Academy Award nominations are announced next week.

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘La La Land’ Ride Oscar Wave on Soft Holiday Weekend

15 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As far as the box office is concerned, the Martin Luther King holiday weekend might better be dubbed Memorial Day, as six new wide releases are weak or dying. Despite a wide array of product which should have boosted totals, this weekend looks to be down 19 per cent from last year.

On the other hand, Oscar contenders “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox) and “La La Land”(Lionsgate) continued to surf cresting audience enthusiasm to place first and second for the three day weekend.

School vacation Monday results may boost Universal’s “Sing” and possibly Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” to higher positions. Animated musical “Sing” is holding well, with a 33 per cent drop. “Rogue One,” though now the top-grossing 2016 domestic release, is falling far faster than juggernaut “Force Awakens” a year ago.

Hidden Figures Wins Box Office Weekend #2 with $20.4M

15 January 2017 12:02 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Often times, if two movies are less than $1 million apart when the box office estimates are released, those movies will swap places when the actual numbers arrive on Monday. Last weekend, it looked like Rogue One would repeat atop the box office with $21.9 million, with the expanding Hidden Figures following just behind with $21.8 million. When the actual figures were released on Monday, Hidden Figures ended up on top with $22.8 million, just ahead of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with $22.06 million. This weekend, Hidden Figures managed to expand even further, repeating atop the box office for the second weekend in a row with $20.4 million, in a weekend where two more expanding movies didn't even crack the top 10.

This weekend, both the true story adaptation Hidden Figures and Rogue One went up against three new movies, Paramount's Monster Trucks, Stx Entertainment's The Bye Bye Man and Open Road Films' Sleepless. There »

Ben Affleck, Martin Scorsese and ‘Monster Trucks’ All Bomb at Mlk Weekend Box Office

15 January 2017 10:38 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

This year’s Martin Luther King Jr. holiday marked the weekend when three major movies bombed in their first weekend in wide release — Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” and Paramount’s “Monster Trucks.” Paramount already took a major writedown last September for its action movie, so many had anticipated the loss. But “Live by Night” and “Silence,” both high-profile movies with budgets of $65 million and $40 million, respectively, also underwhelmed at the box office. “It’s a jungle out there right now and unless you are ‘Hidden Figures’ or ‘Rogue One,’ or a similarly successful movie, »

Arthouse Audit: Audiences Skip Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’

15 January 2017 10:18 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year’s award season continues to yield a robust specialized bounty. The Oscar contenders are led by “La La Land” (Lionsgate) and “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox). The public, particularly older audiences, are coming out in big numbers for films that launched in limited release.

That doesn’t extend to new limited openings, with nearly all top distributors holding back until the awards noise dies down. Still, a few are venturing out with smaller less heralded films in New York (along with a plethora of Video on Demand releases). This week sees three of note, led by a very surprising total for “World’s Apart” (Cinema Libre), an under-the-radar 2015 Greek economic crisis drama.

Check out our Award Season video interviews.

Jude Law and Diane Keaton Star as Sexy Pontiff and Spiritual Sidekick in HBO’s The Young Pope

15 January 2017 9:12 AM, PST | | See recent news »

HBO’s  The Young Pope — inscrutable, satirical, consistently surprising — calls to mind the pious wisdom of Saint Teresa of Avila: “More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered prayers.”

Which is another way of saying this new series will certainly disappoint anyone hoping for a juicy papal potboiler (a Vatican of Cards) or expecting  something that delivers a genuine dark night of the soul and at penitential length, like Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece Silence.

And yet The Young Pope somehow gets into the nervous system and under the skin and maybe — by somehow penetrating those infinitesimally small crevices that »

'Hidden Figures' Topples New Releases to Take MLK Weekend While 'Rogue One' Passes $500 Million

15 January 2017 9:01 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

It wasn't necessarily an exciting Martin Luther King weekend, though it is rather astonishing to see how poorly all but one of the weekend's new and expanding wide releases performed. The weekend's successes find Hidden Figures leading the way for a second weekend, followed by Golden Globe juggernaut La La Land while it was STX's The Bye Bye Man that over performed against tracking and delivered the best new opening among the weekend's new and expanding releases, more than doubling the film's production budget over the four-day weekend. At #1 for a second weekend in a row, Fox's Hidden Figures delivered an estimated $20.4 million for the three-day and is expected to finish over $25 million for the holiday weekend as its domestic cume will near $60 million by end of day Monday. Finishing in second for the three-day is Lionsgate's La La Land, delivering an impressive $14.5 million for the three-day (+43.1%) from 1,848 theaters (+333), including 148 IMAX theaters, »

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ Prevails as ‘Monster Trucks,’ Ben Affleck’s ‘Live by Night’ Bomb

15 January 2017 7:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s bombs away at the multiplexes.

Family film “Monster Trucks” tanked when it debuted over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, while Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” and Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” suffered moribund national expansions. Their failures will lead to tens of millions of dollars in red ink for the studios that backed them. “Sleepless,” an action-thriller with Jamie Foxx, also suffered an underwhelming opening, getting lost in the crush of new releases.

“There’s almost an unprecedented number of films out there,” said Paul  Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. “It’s got to be somewhat daunting and overwhelming for moviegoers.”

Fox and Chernin Entertainment’s”Hidden Figures” retained its box office crown in its second weekend of wide release, earning $20.5 million for the weekend and a projected $25.3 million for the long weekend. That will push its total to $59.7 million. The historical drama about African-American Nasa »

AFI’s 2016 Video Almanac: Watch Hollywood’s Biggest Stars Explain Why Modern TV and Films Matter

14 January 2017 1:37 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As part of AFI’s 2016 Awards video almanac, the organization asked Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Amy Adams, Mel Gibson, Martin Scorsese, Denzel Washington and many other artists, what they’d like viewers to remember about their movies and TV shows, and why those projects matter now.

“I want people to just be inherently moved,” said “This is Us” star Mandy Moore. “I want them to be able to relate it back to their lives and the challenges and obstacles that they may have faced.”

Atlanta” creator and star Donald Glover thinks that movies and TV shows matter because, “It becomes sort of like a stamp of the times,” he stated. “Like this is what was happening and this is how people were feeling like in ‘old 2016.’”

14 January 2017 7:41 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hidden Figures” faced tough competition from horror film “The Bye Bye Man” on Friday the 13th, but looks to easily hold of all newcomers including Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” and “Monster Trucks” on its way to a second straight box office victory over the four-day holiday weekend.

After narrowly beating out “Rogue One” last week, Fox’s “Hidden Figures” earned $5.5 million on Friday from 3,286 locations on its way to four-day total of $28 million. Stx’s “Bye Bye Man” made $5.4 million on Friday from 2,220 theaters and should end up with about $15 million by the holiday weekend’s end. The horror film is in the mix with returners “Sing,” “La La Land” and “Rogue One” which should all end up in the $15 to $16 million range.
