Diversity Scandal Overlooks Historic Year for Women at Oscars

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to this year’s Academy Awards, no word is more buzzworthy than “diversity”. For the second year in a row the Oscars have nominated only white actors in their four main acting categories, sparking backlash and, as a result, inciting the Academy to announce new changes to tackle its “diversity problem”.

Amidst another year of #OscarsSoWhite trending on Twitter, however, the fact that 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for women has been largely overlooked. Three of this year’s best picture nominees (BrooklynRoomMad Max: Fury Road) are female-centric and feature strong female protagonists in the center of the action. In fact, even outside of those films and their performances, a number of women are nominated for best picture as producers, as well. Kristie Macosko Krieger is nominated for Bridge of Spies, Blye Pagon Faust is nominated for Spotlight, Dede Gardner »

Top 10 hottest forum posts: Outrage over Oscar snubs present ('Carol') & past (Ellen Burstyn, Mickey Rourke)

3 February 2016 6:12 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Even after the recent results at the Producers Guild and Screen Actors Guild Awards have thrown this year's Oscar race into uncertainty, our forum posters are still fuming over snubs past and present. For instance, why was "Carol" left out of the Best Picture lineup this year when "The Kids Are All Right" made the cut in 2010? Was it homophobia or sexism? Both? Neither? -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions That's not all. They're also relitigating some of the most controversial results of the past 15 years. Should Ellen Burstyn ("Requiem for a Dream") really have lost Best Actress to Julia Roberts ("Erin Brockovich") in 2000? Should Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler") have defeated Sean Penn ("Milk") in 2008? If not those, what are your biggest outrages of the 21st century so far?

Best Picture Race Raises Gender Bias Questions

27 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Of this year’s eight best picture nominees, only two films could be considered traditionally female-skewing. Both Brooklyn and Room sport female leads (both of whom are nominated in the best actress category: Saoirse Ronan and Brie Larson, respectively), yet neither film is expected to win.

This could be due, in large part, to the vast majority of Academy voters being male. According to a 2013 Los Angeles Times study, the Academy is 76 percent male and 24 percent female, whereas, according to the 2013 U.S. Census, more than 50.8 percent of Americans are women. Whether Brooklyn or Room‘s darkhorse status as best pic contenders is because of, or in spite of, this fact is left to the individual.

Dividing films into gender lines is tricky, as arguments have been made for Mad Max: Fury Road’s feminist themes and strong female performances (Charlize Theron’s, in particular). However, »

Ready or Not, the Academy Is Ripe for a Shake-up

26 January 2016 9:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the wake of yet another slate of Oscar nominations dominated by white filmmakers and performers, plenty has been lost or exaggerated in a sea of hashtag activism. But despite any nuance about why films like “Beasts of No Nation,” “Creed” and “Straight Outta Compton” underperformed with the Academy, the issue trains a harsh spotlight on one undeniable fact: the Academy — and by extension, the entire industry — has a quantifiable racial bias.

As a result of the outcry, the organization is, frankly, under siege. Phones have been ringing off the hook at the Academy’s Beverly Hills headquarters. I’m told staff members were instructed not to talk about the controversy as moves were made behind the scenes last week to address it swiftly. And to a person, every Academy member I know is brimming with resentment over insinuations and outright accusations of racism.

I do have sympathy on that last point. »

James Schamus On His Sundance Directing Debut, Focus Exit, And Why He’s All About Jesus: Q&A Part 1

23 January 2016 1:56 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: As a buyer when he ran Good Machine and Focus Features, James Schamus has been as much a Park City fixture as snow and thin air. Tomorrow, he takes on a new role: first time director, when he premieres his adaptation of the Philip Roth novel Indignation. It’s an acquisition title, which puts Schamus on the opposite side of the bargaining table where he bought and released such films as The Kids Are All Right, The Motorcycle Diaries, Pariah and, yes, Hamlet… »

Mark Ruffalo on Spotlight: ‘The whole of Boston was complicit. Everybody looked the other way’

21 January 2016 10:32 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar nominated for his role as a investigative reporter in Spotlight, the indie fixture-turned-Avengers-superstar talks about the power of the press, Bernie Sanders and life as the Hulk

“I feel bad for the Republicans,” says Mark Ruffalo. “It’s an untenable situation for them in a lot of ways. The people who are clear-headed and really do hold conservative values are on the outs.” The presidential election is rumbling along and Ruffalo – ever the actor – is not above a bit of kindly empathy. “What’s driving the party at the moment is nothing other than fear and xenophobia, and a kind of paranoia that is not sustainable. You can’t govern with it.”

With a record of activism alongside a high achieving acting career – which includes such imperishable indie classics as The Kids Are All Right, Zodiac and Margaret, no one can have much doubt where Ruffalo’s political sympathies »

Why I Decided to Break My Golden Globes Boycott (Opinion)

11 January 2016 11:59 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I have a confession to make: I have never watched the Golden Globes — or rather, until last night, I had never been witness to that bizarre spectacle where movie stars get plastered while receiving awards from the chummy cabal of foreign journos who help promote their films year round. But this year, while visiting Los Angeles for the month, I was intrigued to attend a couple of the afterparties at the Beverly Hilton and felt it was only right to watch the show first.

Friends have always insisted that the Globes are more fun than the Oscars. For one, there’s the open bar (this year, returning host Ricky Gervais made his roast-like remarks with a beer glass on hand all night). Better still, there’s the fact that the Globes don’t mean anything — or at least, nothing more than the quasi-consensus of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., a »

How the Golden Globes and Oscars Have Come Together on Best Picture in the 21st Century

8 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

This Sunday the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will present their picks for best dramatic and comedy/musical picture at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards.

The Globes are the first major indicator for Oscar and since the HFPA honors both dramas and comedies in their dual best picture categories the chances of the Globes’ pick overlapping with the Academy’s is two-fold.

Those interested in predicting this year’s winner for best picture at the Oscars will be paying close attention to the Globes this Sunday, as a number of Golden Globe winners have gone on to take home the statuette for best pic. In a year such as this, with no standout frontrunner in a tight Oscar race, the focus is even sharper on who will win this weekend in hopes that some clearer picture will come into focus.

Here’s a look at how »
