"Poor Ivy”: August: Osage County’s Underappreciated Mvp

8 April 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's Andrew to celebrate the release of last year's embattled August: Osage County newly arrived on DVD. Significant spoilers ahead.

Each year there's at least one film which wins middling to good reviews and manages Oscar nods but is promptly forgotten as soon as it's released. August: Osage County was 2013's victim of that unfortunate annual tradition. Sure, it earned those two acting nominations it seemed assured early on but no one was particularly interested in talking about any aspect of August: Osage County, but for its Oscar belly-flop elsewhere and the Oscar queen at the centre. Perhaps, it was an automated response to Meryl Streep usually being at the centre of films with little else to offer than her star turn (The Iron Lady, Julie & Julia, Music of the Heart, etcetera). It's a shame because the former awards’ hopeful had so much more to celebrate than just the fire-breathing matriarch in the middle. »

Mystery DVD Club: Metal Shifters

1 April 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Caroline Moran 3 Apr 2014 - 07:32

Forces from outer space bring metal to life in Metal Shifters. And you know what? It's not bad...

Welcome back to Mystery DVD Club. The idea behind this is simple: we went and bought a whole host of films that we hadn't heard of before, none of which cost us more than a few pounds. Then, we sent them to a bunch of our writers, without telling them what 'film' they were going to receive. Could we unearth a hidden gem? Actually, we might have done...

It's a tale as old as time. A junk-yard owner builds a 20-foot fully-articulated human-like statue from scrap metal and car parts in a small Idaho town. Meanwhile, some bacteria falls to earth on a crashed satellite and turns out to have a physics-defying ability to move metal. Bacteria 'possesses' statue. Chaos ensues.

History made as Houses of Parliament open doors to Meryl Streep

6 March 2014 4:44 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

First commercial project to be shot in Palace of Westminster as Streep takes on role of Emmeline Pankhurst in Suffragette

A forthcoming film starring Meryl Streep and Carey Mulligan as pioneers of the campaign for women's voting rights is to be the first commercial project to shoot at the Houses of Parliament.

Suffragette, from Brick Lane director Sarah Gavron and The Iron Lady screenwriter Abi Morgan, which features Streep as famed historical campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst, stars Mulligan as an early member of her Women's Social and Political Union. MPs have approved plans to film in the Palace of Westminster, a move which will bring in revenue and save producers the high cost of mocking up the chamber elsewhere.

"This unique location promises to attract more production to the capital, and by working with the industry and our partners, we will help ensure it can get the most out of filming, »

Oscars Facts: 23 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Academy Awards

1 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 86th Academy Awards are this Sunday evening, and we're counting down the minutes!

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you a few of the best (and craziest) Academy Awards facts. From the first Best Actor winner to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 23 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal, who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.

2. At 82, Christopher Plummer became the oldest person to win an Academy Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in "Beginners" (2010) opposite Ewan McGregor.

3. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, »

Hollywood Hillbillies Oscars: The Best in Tough, Mema-esque Nominated Roles

28 February 2014 12:14 PM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The 2014 Academy Awards are right around the corner, and we couldn't help but notice that there's not one, but two women nominated for playing our favorite kind of Oscar–nominated role: the brash, tough-talking older matriarch, a role we affectionately call "the Mema," after Michael "The Angry Ginger" Kittrell's grandmother from Reelz's reality series Hollywood Hillbillies. Of course, a "Mema" isn't nominated every year, but with Jane Squibb from Nebraska and Meryl Streep from August: Osage County both being nominated in a "Mema" role, we thought we'd share some of our favorites "Mema" nominations in advance of this weekend's telecast.

Oscars Lowdown 2014: Best Actress - No reason for Blanchett to be 'Blue'

26 February 2014 11:10 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the lead-up to the 86th annual Academy Awards on March 2, HitFix will be bringing you the lowdown on all 24 Oscar categories with multiple entries each day. Take a few notes and bone up on the competition as we give you the edge in your office Oscar pool! After Oscar history was made last year when the Best Supporting Actor race fielded five former winners, it looked for the longest time as if this year's Best Actress category might follow suit. Happily, a late surge for "American Hustle" prevented such an outcome, but only just: this year's category features four former winners and one still-uncrowned darling of the actors' branch, with 38 nominations and six Oscars between them. Given that pedigree, you'd expect this to be a pretty feisty contest, right? Er... not so much. The nominees are...

Meryl Streep Wins in Award Shows and in Love

26 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Meryl Streep knows a thing or two about long-term success, and her marriage is no exception. She and sculptor Don Gummer have been married since 1978, and he'll likely be her red carpet date to this Sunday's Academy Awards. Meryl may have been mentioned more than God in Oscars acceptance speeches over the last decade, but at the 2012 Academy Awards, it was her husband who received a sweet shoutout. When Meryl won best actress for The Iron Lady, she said, "First I'm going to thank Don because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play him out with the music, and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives you've given me." The pair first met after her partner, John Cazale - of The Godfather and Deer Hunter - died of bone cancer. She was invited to move into the vacant apartment of her brother's friend, »

Meryl Streep to star as Emmeline Pankhurst in Suffragette

24 February 2014 10:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Meryl Streep has signed on to play famed suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst alongside Carey Mulligan (Shame), Helena Bonham Carter (The King's Speech), Romola Garai (Amazing Grace), Anne-Marie Duff (Shameless), Natalie Press (Ill Manors), Ben Wishaw (Skyfall) and Brandan Gleeson (In Bruges) in Suffragette.

The film will chart the early activists for womens’ liberation and their run-ins with the government and will reunite Streep with The Iron Lady scribe Abi Morgan, while Sarah Gavron (Village at the End of the World) is set to direct.

Suffragette would seem to signal another Oscar charge for Streep in the near future, the actress having been nominated for a record 18th time this year for her performance in August: Osage County.

Will playing Emmeline Pankhurst bag Meryl Streep another Oscar?

24 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The star will appear as the suffragette in a movie about a young woman radicalised by the fight to win the vote

Name: Emmeline Pankhurst.

Age: 69.

Appearance: Streepian.

I suppose Meryl does have an Edwardian look about her. I can picture her in a bustle. Good, because she'll soon be donning one to play our Emmeline, in a film about a young woman radicalised by the suffragette movement.

Who's playing the young woman? That's Carey Mulligan.

Good heavens! And who is to play the horse? What horse?

The horse she throws herself under. Don't tell me – Meryl's playing that too! She's a chameleon! A 19th Oscar nomination in the bag – I'll place my bet right now! No, wait – hold, if you will, your horses. You've got the wrong suffragette. That was Emily Davison.

Oh. Who's playing her? No idea. She might not even be in the film.

Oh. Still, Meryl »

Why Dallas Buyers Club should win the Best Picture Oscar

24 February 2014 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Every day, from now until the weekend of the 2014 Academy Awards, HeyUGuys will be publishing an article championing one of the nine films in contention for the coveted Best Picture Oscar. We will be collecting them all here, where you can find the previous articles.

Dallas Buyers Club showcases two actors at the top of their game, transforming before our eyes. Matt Rodgers takes it to task. 

It’d be just as easy to find a list of reasons why this little ground swell awards contender shouldn’t win the Best Picture Oscar; a TV-movie-of-the week plot featuring body-morphing performances from the lead actors. It’s the kind of film that the Golden Baldies would have showered with acclaim during the 1990’s (the lazy comparison being Philadelphia), but in this more cynical age, its appearance in the Best Picture category is seen as nothing more than a token gesture, presumably »

We tattle on a few Oscar votes

22 February 2014 1:32 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Every year during Oscar voting I make a point of checking in with a member of the producers' branch who sometimes tips me off about potential upsets. He's the perfect academy demo – a smartcracker industry vet in his early 60s, who voted for "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain" for Best Picture and Meryl Streep ("The Iron Lady") over Viola Davis ("The Help") for Best Actress when most prognostictors were saying "Brokeback" and Davis would win. Demo Man is not always right. He's a fanatical Republican whose political beliefs are often reflected in his picks. He wouldn't vote, for example, for Sean Penn ("Milk") because he's a "Commie," but everybody knew Penn would win anyway that year. Here's how Demo Man is voting this year. Be prepared for a few surprises: Best Picture: "American Hustle" Best Director:  Alexander Payne ("Ne »

Powerful Woman Meryl Streep to Inspire Legions of Powerful Women in ‘Suffragette’

20 February 2014 12:30 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

By the powers of Athena and all the powerful goddesses who have come before and after her, Meryl Streep, maybe the most righteous female of all, has joined the cast of a film called Suffragette. The film, directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) and written by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame) chronicles, naturally, the beginnings of the  women’s rights movement that blossomed in the late 19th century. Streep will portray British activist Emmeline Pankhurst, a significant figure in the feminist movement and the suffragettes’ battle to get the right to vote. Pankhurst founded the Women’s Social and Political Union and caused a firestorm with her rallying; after one particularly volatile outing, she and her fellow sisters in arms were sent to prison for disturbing the peace, where they then staged a hunger strike to secure themselves better conditions. Pankhurst won’t be a main role in the film, but »
