Screen considers potential runners and riders.

The BBC is likely to announce its new head of film within the next two weeks, according to sources close to the process.

Scroll down for potential candidates and the original job spec

That timetable should come as a relief to those under consideration for the role and to wider industry who will want to begin building or growing their relationship with the new boss.

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am

This year's Best Actress race is extremely competitive.

Some of our favourite performances couldn't secure the nomination, and it was simply because there were so many incredible female performances. We're sad that names like Annette Bening for 20th Century Women, Amy Adams for Arrival and Hailee Steinfeld for The Edge of Seventeen weren't among the nominees, but we also love the five nominated performances so much. Seriously, it was just a great year for women acting in film, and with the talent out there today, it's always going to be hard, and therefore even more of an honour, to land that Oscar nomination.

Though there's five women in the running here, the race has been pretty much narrowed down to two major threats. »

8 February 2017 5:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production already under way, more cast members are starting to come together for LucasFilm's Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, with Fleabag creator/star Phoebe Waller-Bridge coming aboard. Her character's identity was not yet revealed, although it was stated that she is playing a "CGI-driven" character that will play a "significant part" in the ensemble cast. Her role in the Han Solo spin-off was compared to Alan Tudyk's K-2So droid character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which he portrayed through a motion-capture suit.

Variety broke the casting news this afternoon, although no further details were given regarding her character. Regardless of who she's playing, Phoebe Waller-Bridge joins a growing cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as Han Solo's mentor, Garris Shrike, and Emilia Clarke as a currently unspecified character. There have been rumors that Emilia Clarke is playing Sana Starros, »

16 of the Worst Films Ever Nominated for an Oscar — Including a Few 2017 Academy Award Nominees

The Academy Awards are meant to celebrate the best that Hollywood has to offer us each year — but sometimes a few less-than-stellar films can slip through the cracks. It doesn’t happen that often in the major categories and, when it does, these duds usually pop up in the categories that fly under the radar. Let’s take a look at the films that meet the criteria of having been panned by critics and somehow landing an Oscar nomination this year and others in the 21st century.

Just to be transparent about the qualifications a film would need to meet to be included in this story, we’re looking at those that were at least nominated for an Oscar — if they won, even better — and that registered as “rotten” on RottenTomatoes.com. “Rotten” films would be »

Meryl Streep's Marriage Has Lasted as Long as Her Career

27 January 2017 9:30 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's been by her side at a number of industry events and award shows in the years since. 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 shout-out. 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 The Deer Hunter - died of bone cancer. She »

10 January 2017 1:52 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

While her shortlisting in the best actress category for Florence Foster Jenkins may not have broken any records, Streep's latest BAFTA nomination comes some 38 years after her first in 1979 (for best supporting actress in Manhattan).
