Final Oscar Predictions !

25 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With the Oscars nearly upon us, it's time for final predictions. I've written up a lengthy piece for Towleroad which I hope you'll read and you can also compare my predictions to the other Gurus of Gold at Movie City News. I shan't reprint the whole thing here since we have all those charts you can peruse and months of articles on these very races. 

While nearly everyone expects La La Land to be the major champion of the night, I don't think it will be record breaking. Damien Chazelle’s popular musical would need 12 Oscars to beat the record of 11 which was set by Ben-Hur back in 1959 and then tied by both Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003) and Titanic (1997). West Side Story (1961), yours truly's all time favorite movie, is the runner up to "most wins" with 10. La La Land might tie West Side Story but I'm predicting 9 wins. »

Oscars: Is There a Correlation Between Ceremony Runtime and TV Ratings?

Managing Editor

The time has arrived: the 89th Academy Awards will occur tomorrow, February 26, and we’ll finally know which films and which stars will take home those coveted statues. This is one of the most talked-about events on TV each year but, while everyone is excited for the spectacle and excitement of it all, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t garner critics. Before you go complaining about the show, let’s educate you on some statistics.

With Jimmy Kimmel hosting the show on ABC — at 8 p.m. Et and 5 p.m. Pt, of course — we know we’re all in for quite the entertaining three-plus hours of glitz and glamour. It’s almost certain that La La Land will dominate the awards and it’s almost a given that a ton of people will utter Donald Trump’s name in some way. »

You can view the trailer here.

Flickering Myth got the chance to speak with Stelio Savante, one of the actors in the film who plays underground power broker Howard Boston.

Final Predictions For The 2017 Academy Awards: ‘La La Land’ Is Gonna Dominate

24 February 2017 7:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Make no mistake, the 89th Academy Awards will be a love letter to Damien Chazelle‘s movie musical “La La Land.” The Lionsgate blockbuster has already tied “All About Eve” and “Titanic” for the most nominations for a single film, 14, and now may find itself breaking the record of 11 wins held by “Ben-Hur,” “Titanic” and “The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King.” If it comes to pass, it will be a remarkable achievement considering how much the Academy has tended to spread the wealth recently (after ‘Return of the King,’ the Best Picture winner with the most statues this century is “Slumdog Millionaire” with just eight).

Oscars: How Well Do the Cinema Audio Society Awards Predict the Best Sound Mixing Winner?

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

La La Land recently took home the top honors at the Cinema Audio Society Awards — but does that mean the best sound mixing Oscar is in the bag? After all, shouldn’t the folks who know make their career in sound mixing be the best ones to determine which film should ultimately go on to win at the subsequent Academy Awards? You might think so, but here’s a dive into why that’s not necessarily so.

The films nominated alongside Damien Chazelle’s modern musical in the best sound mixing category include Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Upon first look, you might recognize that La La Land doesn’t exactly fit in with these other films, as most of them are in the war genre. Hacksaw Ridge is set during World War II, »

Of Heffalumps And Proles: Where Do Oscar Upsets Come From?

Where do surprises come from? If we knew, they wouldn't be surprises. But it's probably worth looking at the slightly less mysterious matter of Oscar upsets, as the 7,000 or so voters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences cast their ballots between now and next Tuesday. By and large, Academy members are a predictable bunch, especially when it comes to the Best Picture award. Almost everyone knew Slumdog Millionaire, The King's Speech and The Artist were… »

Berlin: Danny Boyle Says a Second Brexit Referendum Would Overturn U.K. Leave

10 February 2017 10:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Danny Boyle says a second European Union referendum in the U.K. would see that country vote to remain in Europe.

"I think if you took the [Brexit] referendum now, people would vote to remain," the Steve Jobs and Slumdog Millionaire director said while promoting his latest movie, T2 Trainspotting, at the Berlin Film Festival on Friday.

Boyle recalled hearing the results of the U.K.'s EU referendum vote in June 2016, which saw the Leave side win with 52 percent of the vote, while in Edinburgh shooting the Trainspotting sequel. "We were filming when Brexit happened, and we »

Biggest Potential Box Office Bombs of Summer 2017

10 February 2017 7:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the new year a month old, it seems right to start wondering which summer movies will turn out to be some of the biggest box office bombs of 2017. If you watch a lot of movies, sometimes you just know when a movie is going to flop. Sometimes you can tell from a trailer. Other times you're sitting in a theater, having paid your hard earned gringo green to see the movie and, very early on, you realize that this thing is a turkey. A lot of times, you actually finish the movie before realizing that you have just wasted 2 hours your life.

The big question is, how does this happen? What makes a movie flop? The people making these tank machines often consider themselves artists. It isn't like anybody sets out to make a true turkey, right? Especially one that arrives in the summer months, a time that sees the biggest blockbusters into theaters. »
