SAG-o-Metrics: Predicting the Acting Oscars Based on SAG Nominations (Infographic)

23 January 2015 5:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

One of the great things about awards season is that it provides a rich field for statistic analysis. Attentive viewers can use the Golden Globes (the first major awards show of the season) and SAG Awards (the second) as a sort of predictive measure for the major acting awards at the Oscars. We looked at the Oscar-nominated roles in the four major acting categories (sorry, Jen and Naomi), and cut out anyone who didn't win or get nominated for a Golden Globe and a SAG. Then, we went back five years (because any more than that is insane - who are we, »

The Blob Remake Moving Forward, Simon West to Direct

22 January 2015 7:19 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Once you’re absorbed by its terror, you can’t even scream. The slimy mass that is the Blob first thrilled audiences when it took on Steve McQueen on the big screen in 1958. It next oozed into cinemas via the 1972 sequel, Beware! The Blob, before being reborn in a 1988 remake directed by Chuck Russell and co-written by Frank Darabont. Proving that it’s still a relentless alien amoeba, 1958’s The Blob is being remade once again.

Goldcrest Films is moving forward with a remake of The Blob, with Simon West (The Expendables 2, Con Air) lined up for the director’s chair and shooting slated to begin this summer. Modern-day special effects capabilities are expected to bring the Blob to life like never before, and Chris Haney (Avatar, Avengers Assemble) will oversee the VFX in post-production.

Linking the upcoming remake to the original, Jack Harris, the producer of 1958’s The Blob, »

Redford on TCM: Dismal 'Gatsby,' Oscar winner 'Africa'

Robert Redford: 'The Great Gatsby' and 'The Way We Were' tonight on Turner Classic Movies Turner Classic Movies' Star of the Month Robert Redford returns this evening with three more films: two Sydney Pollack-directed efforts, Out of Africa and The Way We Were, and Jack Clayton's film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby. (See TCM's Robert Redford film schedule below. See also: "On TCM: Robert Redford Movies.") 'The Great Gatsby': Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby Released by Paramount Pictures, the 1974 film version of The Great Gatsby had prestige oozing from just about every cinematic pore. The film was based on what some consider the greatest American novel ever written. Francis Ford Coppola, whose directing credits included the blockbuster The Godfather, and who, that same year, was responsible for both The Godfather Part II and The Conversation, penned the adaptation.

Redford on TCM: Dismal 'Gatsby,' Oscar winner 'Africa'

'Out of Africa' Out of Africa (1985) is an unusual Robert Redford star vehicle in that the film's actual lead isn't Redford, but Meryl Streep -- at the time seen as sort of a Bette Davis-Alec Guinness mix: like Davis, Streep received a whole bunch of Academy Award nominations within the span of a few years: from 1978-1985, she was shortlisted for no less than six movies.* Like Guinness, Streep could transform »

Here’s Why Ava DuVernay Got Snubbed by the Oscars, and How We Can Change It

15 January 2015 10:10 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Pissed about Selma director Ava DuVernay‘s Oscar snub for Best Director? How about its leading man David Oyelowo being overlooked for Best Actor? And what about the film’s director of photographer Bradford Young‘s shutout from the Best Cinematography category? I am too, but let’s try to make sense of it all, and figure out how to avoid it in the future.

It almost makes no sense why each individual was left unrecognized by the Academy. First, Selma is the stuff Oscar dreams are made of. It’s a focused, ever-relevant, politically charged biopic about overcoming the odds, in the vein of Oscar winners The King’s Speech and The Hurt Locker. Oyelowo plays a well-known, not to mention beloved, public figure, Martin Luther King Jr., with such conviction and empathy that he disappears into the role, no different from the way Joaquin Phoenix embodied Johnny Cash »

14 Biggest Golden Globes Snubs and Surprises

11 January 2015 8:40 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Golden Globes are known for their unpredictability, and this year’s awards delivered surprise wins and stunning snubs in both film and TV categories. The fact that “Boyhood” was the big winner — bringing home wins for motion picture (drama), director and supporting actress — was among the least surprising results of the evening. Ditto victories for Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore and J.K. Simmons. But that’s pretty much where the easy calls came to an end.

14 of the biggest snubs and surprises from the 2015 Golden Globes:

Surprise: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Released all the way back in March, Wes Anderson’s characteristically quirky period comedy hasn’t been at the forefront of awards season discussions so far — except lately, it has been popping up in the most unexpected places (SAG’s ensemble category for one). The Globes victory over heavy favorite “Birdman” (which still garnered wins for best screenplay and »

11 January 2015 1:43 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Golden Globes 2015 winners here live: Julianne Moore in the running for 'Still Alice,' 'Maps to the Stars' (photo: Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') The 2015 Golden Globes Winners will be posted here as they are announced on Sunday, January 11, 2015. Once again, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the awards ceremony. (Scroll down for the full list of Golden Globes 2015 nominations.) Now, following a snafu on the Golden Globes' website, some have been betting on Ava DuVernay's Selma for Best Picture - Drama and Rob Marshall's Into the Woods for Best Picture - Comedy or Musical. Even though the tech company handling the site's graphics has taken full responsibility for the error, asserting that the 2015 "winners" were chosen randomly from the pool of Golden Globe nominees; they just weren't supposed to go live.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s ‘The Imitation Game’ Expands in International with Robust New Bows

5 January 2015 8:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sold by FilmNation, produced and financed by Teddy Schwarzman’s Black Bear Pictures, and making good on its Academy Award buzz plus the star presence of Benedict Cumberbatch, expanding from the U.K. and Norway “The Imitation Game” opened over the weekend to spirited numbers in six new territories.

Out-of-the-gate numbers track in Italy and Spain at least ahead of “The King’s Speech,” as well as ahead of multiple other past prestige pics with Academy Award pedigree, suggesting “The Imitation Game,” which co-stars Keira Knightley, could well be one of international’s standout independent releases of first half 2015, especially if goosed by Academy Award nominations, .

It goes without saying, however, that Weinstein Company U.S. release is unlikely to get anywhere near “The King Speech’s” remarkable final $74.9 million B.O. trawl for Momentum in the U.K.

Released in Italy by Videa-cde, “Game” grossed a robust $1.955 million over its opening weekend, »

Awards Season’s Female Troubles

2 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When she accepted her Oscar in February for “Blue Jasmine,” Cate Blanchett delivered a painfully necessary message to those in the industry “who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films, with women at the center, are niche experiences. They are not. Audiences want to see them and, in fact, they earn money. The world is round, people!”

Alas, the world looks flatter than ever if the movies in the running for best picture are any indication. We actually seem to have regressed this season: Blanchett’s competition for lead actress notably included Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock and Judi Dench, whose respective movies, “American Hustle,” “Gravity” and “Philomena,” were all nominated for best picture. The year before, we had “Amour,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” all of which boasted strongly developed female leads and scored nominations for actress as well as picture. »
