10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cathy Schulman has joined Stx Entertainment as a top production executive, Variety has learned.

Schulman most recently spent eight years as president of Mandalay Pictures.

Her title has yet to be formalized, but she began work at the newly launched studio Monday and has already been reaching out to members of the creative community. She will report to president and chief content officer Oren Aviv.

Stx Entertainment was launched last year by producer Robert Simonds with the goal of fielding 12 to 15 films a year, with budgets ranging from $20 million to $80 million. Upcoming releases include the psychological thriller “The Gift” with Jason Bateman and Joel Edgerton; “The Secret in Their Eyes,” a remake of the Oscar-winning Argentinian film of the same name to star Julia Roberts; and “The Free State of Jones,” an action-drama starring Matthew McConaughey.

'La La Land' May Reunite Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

14 April 2015 6:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are both circling the romantic musical La La Land. We first reported on the project back in June 2014, when Miles Teller and Emma Watson were attached to star, but Miles Teller has moved on and Emma Watson was forced to drop out due to her commitment to Disney's Beauty and the Beast. No deals are finalized for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone quite yet, but Deadline reports that all parties are trying to make this happen.

The story centers on the budding romance between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress in modern-day Los Angeles. While both quickly fall for one another, they discover how difficult it is to maintain a relationship along with their artistic endeavors. If both stars sign on, the plan is to move forward and start production sometime this fall. The project would also mark the third movie Ryan Gosling and »

The 83rd Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

20 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After a brief delay, this series has returned. Yes, once again I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright then, here goes nothing folks…behold my picks: Best Picture – The Social Network The nominees here for this ceremony were 127 Hours, Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, »

Annette Bening on the mysterious charm of Al Pacino in 'Danny Collins'

17 March 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Annette Bening's varied career of screen roles -- the cunning moll in "The Grifters," the exasperated real estate agent in "American Beauty," the alcoholic lesbian mother in "The Kids are All Right" -- is especially remarkable because almost every character she plays makes us think, "I know that woman." And maybe we don't, but Bening's knack for finding the humanity in a character is a magnetic and constant part of her work.  In "Danny Collins," Bening plays a hotel manager who wearily takes a shine to the titular star, a washed-up rocker played by Al Pacino. We caught up with Bening to discuss the charm of Pacino, her most difficult roles, and how you get into a role you don't find relatable at all.  "Danny Collins" hits theaters March 20.  »

Report: Academy Old Guard wants to go backward with just 5 Best Picture nominees

4 March 2015 2:12 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The awards world was hit with a bombshell on Tuesday afternoon after news broke that a "significant faction" of the Academy wants the Best Picture field returned to just five nominees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the old guard feels the current system has made the honor less prestigious and are using the low ratings of last month's telecast as proof that the expanded field doesn't work. The issue may be addressed as soon as the next Board of Governors meeting on March 24. Let me take a breath and prepare my reaction while you ponder this Hail Mary of a justification for a moment. (O.K., I'm ready.) Y'all crazy. First, let's discuss the "prestige" argument, shall we?   In 2009 the Best Picture field was increased to 10 nominees because of the horror (i.e. embarrassment) that the out-of-touch membership had snubbed popular and critically acclaimed blockbusters such as "Wall-e" and "The Dark Knight. »

Top 5 Oscars highlights: Julianne Moore finally won, power of 'Glory,' ...

23 February 2015 12:11 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It’s been a long, crazy ride. That seems to be a sentiment echoed every year as the Oscar season comes to a close, having seen so many contenders become pretenders, front-runners changing with the announcement of every new precursor, and records kept or broken. It’s hard to put into words just what this year truly meant, and only time will tell if the academy’s choices really were the right ones, but for now, here are some of the things that stuck out as highlights: -Break- 1. Julianne Moore has an Oscar … at last! “Far from Heaven.” “Boogie Nights.” “The Hours.” “The End of the Affair.” Those are just the films for which Julianne Moore lost at the Oscars. There’s also “Safe,” “Magnolia,” “Short Cuts,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Children of Men,” and any number of great performances she wasn’t »

How 'The Slap' Represents Broadcast's Failure to Copy Cable

20 February 2015 11:23 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With "The Slap," a star-studded miniseries intending to provoke thought and incite debate, NBC has thrown their hat into the “prestige limited series” game currently dominated by HBO ("Olive Kitteridge," "True Detective") and SundanceTV ("Top of the Lake," "The Honorable Woman"). It stars, among others, Uma Thurman, Peter Sarsgaard, Zachary Quinto and Thandie Newton; is directed by Oscar nominee Lisa Cholodenko ("The Kids Are All Right"); and is adapted from an acclaimed Australian series (of the same name) by playwright Jon Robin Baitz, who also created ABC's soapy family drama "Brothers and Sisters." That mix seems an ideal basis for a well-acted, perceptive family drama, or in other words, exactly what "The Slap" wants to be. Baitz's adaptation shares the same structure, characters and thematic underpinnings as the original Australian production. In his opening episode, family and friends gather for »

The Slap Review – TV NBC – High Drama Meets Flaccid Characterizations

12 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Slap, an 8-episode recreation of an Australian miniseries, which is based on a popular novel, is NBC‘s latest attempt at “Event Television,” but it is a tricky, sloppy effort that purports to be an examination of, to varying degrees, “reality,” but in the sense that demands the quotation marks.

As the promos, and name, give away, the show revolves around what happens to a family when one moment, a slap, throws everything into turmoil. This leads us to, as we get toward the end of the show, a great many secrets being revealed.

There could hardly be more of a misrepresentation of what this show is about.

After watching the show’s trailer, and perhaps hearing a very basic outline, you might get the idea that the show is about trying to get past a horrible mistake. A child is shown to be rather unruly, and his parents »

For Your Consideration: Sundance and Next Year's Oscars

3 February 2015 9:07 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that it's all over, let's take an Oscar-specific look at this year's Sundance Film Festival, which could very well serve as a partial crystal ball into what will be happening in the awards race a year from now.  In the past few years, the Best Picture-nominated likes of "Precious," "An Education," "The Kids Are All Right," "Winter's Bone" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" all debuted at the festival. Last year was obviously no exception, with Sundance arguably being the film festival Mvp when it came to the Oscars. Park City premieres "Boyhood" and "Whiplash" both received Best Picture nominations, with the former the shaky frontrunner to end up winning (the first time a Sundance film will have ever done so). Is this year's lineup heading for a similar victory? It's clearly way too soon to know anything for certain, but here are our early best bets: Best PictureFour »

Oscar Track Records for Previously-Nominated Acting Vets

3 February 2015 7:07 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The 87th Academy Awards acting race is almost evenly divided between veterans and first-time nominees.

Nine of the 20 nominees in the four acting categories are newcomers — four lead actors (Steve Carell, Michael Keaton, Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch), two lead actresses (Rosamund Pike and Felicity Jones), two supporting actresses (Patricia Arquette and Emma Stone) and one supporting actor (J.K. Simmons).    

As for the 11 veterans, the number of Oscar nominations between them ranges from 19 to one. Four of them have previously taken Oscars home.

Meryl Streep received her 19th nomination this year for her supporting role as The Witch in Disney’s Into the Woods, the film adaptation of James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s musical. She holds the record for most acting nominations ever received and is one of six actors to have won three or more Oscars. Streep was first nominated in 1979 for her »

How Indie Filmmakers Have Transformed TV

30 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a paradox. Independent films -- the kind that are often dramas or comedies about everyday people, rather than superheroes -- have all but vanished from theaters, which now show mostly popcorn action blockbusters. And yet, many of the filmmakers who used to make those indie movies have found a home on TV, where that same character-driven sensibility makes their work a critical and commercial success.

Exhibit A is surely Lena Dunham. Her 2010 movie "Tiny Furniture" never played in more than 21 theaters or sold as much as $400,000 in tickets, but her HBO series "Girls," which has a similar directorial and thematic approach, has made her a star.

In recent years, a number of her fellow indie directors and writers have made the same transition, from the art-house to your living room, mostly via premium cable or streaming outlets Netflix and Amazon. Alongside Dunham at HBO, there's Cary Joji Fukunaga ("True Detective »

StreamFix: 6 Oscar Frontrunners in Great Roles on Netflix

26 January 2015 5:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Newsflash: We still have awhile before the Oscars. It's like a month away. But we can prepare anyway by revisiting the greatest hits of our leading nominees in the acting categories. Put on your angriest Annette Bening face and join us for this trip into prestige pictures currently streaming on Netflix. "The Kids are All Right" (Julianne Moore) Julianne Moore didn't pick up a nomination, but costars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo did in this family drama (with funny moments) about a lesbian couple attempting to embrace the new-found presence of their kids' sperm donor. "The Kids are All Right" feels like a lost James L. Brooks gem set in 2010, and every performance has endearing and (intentionally) maddening moments. Julianne might play the most conflicted character at all, and she wears that indecision and personal guilt well.  "My Week With Marilyn" (Eddie Redmayne) Is this a great movie? No. In fact, »

What ‘Birdman’s’ Big Awards Weekend Means for a Wild Oscar Race

25 January 2015 8:42 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Back-to-back wins for Alejandro Inarritu’s daring comedy at SAG and Producers Guild Awards help throw awards season into disarray

This was supposed to be the weekend that would clear things up in the Oscar race. Instead, it was a weekend that threw the race into disarray, sending one contender soaring and another faltering.

What happened?

Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood,” which was considered the leader of the race mostly by default even though it didn’t look anything like a typical Best Picture winner, had a chance to seal the deal but turned out to be a shaky frontrunner instead. »

In her acceptance speech for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role at Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, Still Alice star Julianne Moore gave a shout-out to her early days on the soap opera As the World Turns. "When I was on As the World Turns," Moore, 54, said to cheers, "I was so excited when they wrote two parts for me, the classic twin sister role, the good and the evil one ... and then I realized it was super boring to act by myself. And what I really loved, what I really craved, was being with another actor. »

Daily | Previewing Sundance 2015

22 January 2015 8:02 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival opens tonight in Park City and what we'll do here, as succinctly as possible, is provide a guide to the guides. For some, such as Julia Sutherland in the Financial Times, Sundance is "a bellwether of economic trends within the industry." For others, like Brian Moylan in Guardian, it's all about the Big Race. He notes that the festival "has produced a slew of titles that have made the Academy Awards shortlist—including, in recent times, Precious, Little Miss Sunshine, The Kids Are All Right and Winter’s Bone." But if it wins, "Boyhood would be the first to actually scoop the prize (and, if it did, it would be beating another Sundance alumnus, Whiplash)." » - David Hudson »
