It was an amazing year for actresses in both the lead and supporting categories.

Just look at this line up of talent: Viola Davis, Naomie Harris, Michelle Williams, Octavia Spencer and Nicole Kidman. All five of these women turned in amazing work no matter how big or small their roles were. This year, there's a pretty clear winner in this category, which would be Viola Davis who reprises her Tony-winning stage role as Rose Maxson in Fences. She's been considered overdue for some time now, and is one of the best working actresses today, though the same can be said of many of the women vying for the trophy. We're breaking down the Best Supporting Actress Oscar below.

Berlinale 2017: Ana, Mon Amour Review

21 February 2017 8:42 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Having picked up the Golden Bear with his preceding endeavour Child’s Pose, auteur Calin Peter Netzer returns to the Berlinale with Ana, Mon Amour – and while belonging to the quite remarkable Romanian New Wave, it’s a film that bears uncanny similarities to Blue Valentine, following a near-identical formula, different only in that the paramount relationship at the core of this narrative is flailing for different reasons. Even the male protagonist’s progressive hair loss is identical to Ryan Gosling’s in the Derek Cianfrance movie. Just shave it off mate.

The aforementioned, balding individual is Toma (Mircea Postelnicu), who falls hopelessly in love with Ana (Diana Cavallioti) – a likeminded student who shares a passion for literature. Coming from different social backgrounds, and with two sets of parents refusing to accept their child’s new partner, the hardest obstacle for the couple to overcome is Ana’s illness, »

The Best Films at the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival

20 February 2017 8:44 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival wrapped, we’ve highlighted our favorite films from the festival. Make sure to stay tuned in the coming months as we learn about distribution news for the titles. Check out our favorites below, followed by our complete coverage, and one can see the winners here.

Ana, mon amour (Cãlin Peter Netzer)

We only hurt the ones we love, or at least it seems that seems to be the norm in Cãlin Peter Netzer’s latest film, a cerebral examination of love in decay that appears to be the Romanian New Wave’s (if we can still call that) answer to Derek Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine. Romping, eroding, and unraveling over the course of about a decade or so, Ana, mon amour (Netzer’s first film since winning the Golden Bear back in 2013 for Child’s Pose) concerns itself with the doomed romance of Tomo »

Berlin Review: ‘Ana, mon amour’ is a Gripping and Ferociously Bitter Account of Falling Out of Love

Romping, eroding, and unraveling over the course of about a decade or so, Ana, mon amour (Netzer’s first film since winning the Golden Bear back in 2013 for Child’s Pose) concerns itself with the doomed romance of Tomo (Mircea Postelnicu) and Ana (Diana Cavallioti) from their very first sexual encounter (self consciously talking philosophy in their university dorm room before taking things up a notch) to marriage, child birth, and ultimately, disaster.

Our star-crossed lovers, we soon learn, are from very different backgrounds. Ana is the daughter of working class Moldovan immigrants and Tomo is »

A Low-Key Berlinale Yields Some Foreign Oscar Contenders to Watch

19 February 2017 3:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Situated as it is in the dank tail-end of a cold German winter, the Berlinale never attracts as much attention from awards-watchers as its fellow European majors Cannes and Venice: The former, after all, takes place in sunny spring climes, when everyone has recovered sufficiently from the last awards season to contemplate the next one, while the latter glamorously kicks off the gilded fall festivals, handing the baton to Telluride and Toronto. Berlin’s programming, meanwhile, is arguably the most proudly esoteric of the three, with an emphasis on newer filmmakers and underexposed filmmaking regions and demographics.

None of that, needless to say, is exactly music to Oscar pundits’ ears, but for the keen-eyed observer, Berlin annually turns up a few contenders that stay the course all the way to the following February. It’s rare for a Berlinale premiere to make quite as big a splash as Wes Anderson »

Derek Cianfrance Directs Fitness-Themed Super Bowl Commercial For Michelob Ultra

6 February 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Director Derek Cianfrance released “The Light Between Oceans,” about a lighthouse keeper (Michael Fassbender) and his wife (Alicia Vikander) who raise a baby they rescue from a drifting rowing boat, last year to a tepid critical and box office response. Though he’s already lined up a new drama “Metalhead,” Cianfrance took time away from film to direct a Super Bowl commercial for Michelob Ultra. The advertisement “Our Bar” features people intensely working out and then later drinking Michelob Ultra together all set to the “Cheers” theme song. Watch the commercial below.

Derek Cianfrance is a surprise awards-season winner. Tucked away on the list of those who took home trophies last night at the DGAs was the “Blue Valentine” filmmaker, who won Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Commercials for his Nike Golf spot. Indeed, Cianfrance is no stranger to the world of advertising, having also helmed spots for Apple, Powerade, Electronic Arts, and Dick’s Sporting Goods. And now he heads into the Super Bowl with another promo.

9 Movie and TV Reunions That Happened at the SAG Awards

30 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's award season! And you know what that means: costar reunions galore! The SAG Awards provided ample opportunity for actors from past shows and movies to reunite for the camera, though not all of them did; Blue Valentine stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams both showed up, while Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman (The Hours) were there, but we don't have photographic evidence of them together. Here are the costars who we do have pictures of together! Related:25 TV and Movie Reunions That Have Happened in 2016 »

New to Streaming: ‘The Handmaiden,’ ‘Loving,’ ‘The Light Between Oceans,’ and More

27 January 2017 9:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

American Pastoral (Ewan McGregor)

If my limited experience with Philip Roth adaptations is any indication, his novels deal in emotion. There are existential crises concerning identity involved, each a character study about life’s impact beyond the surface experiences propelling them forward. This isn’t something easily translated from page to screen when so much consists of internalized motivation. You must really look into the text, ignoring plot to »

Michelle Williams Circling Jonah Hill’s Coming-Of-Age Drama Mid-90s

27 January 2017 5:25 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michelle Williams is no stranger to Hollywood’s awards circuit. Since her compelling, Oscar-worthy turn in Derek Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine, the actress has gone on to land a series of prestigious nominations through the years, most of which can be traced back to her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn.

Fast forward to the present day and, as the industry’s elite gear up for the 89th Academy Awards, Michelle Williams is a hot favorite to scoop up her second Oscar for her role in Manchester By the Sea. The Dolby Theatre will play host to Hollywood’s biggest night on Sunday, February 26th, but Williams is already thinking further afield. According to Deadline, the Oscar-winner has entered talks to join Jonah Hill for his directorial debut Mid-90s, a coming-of-age skateboarding drama likened to gritty British indie dramas in the vein of Kids or This is England. »

Ryan Gosling, Denis Villeneuve, and more of the 2017 Canadian Oscar nominees

Ryan Gosling, Denis Villeneuve, and more of the 2017 Canadian Oscar nomineesRyan Gosling, Denis Villeneuve, and more of the 2017 Canadian Oscar nomineesAdriana Floridia1/24/2017 2:25:00 Pm

It's always great to see Canadian talent being recognized by Hollywood.

While we did endure a couple of snubs today, as we would've loved to see Xavier Dolan finally be nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category for It's Only the End of the World, or a surprise nomination for Ryan Reynolds as our favourite crass superhero, Deadpool, there was still a lot of Canadian love given to us by the Academy.

Two major players are ones you'll recognize, and are also coincidentally working together on Blade Runner 2049. Canadian actor and hearthrob Ryan Gosling today earned his second Oscar nomination for playing Sebastian, the jazz pianist, in La La Land. The first time he was nominated was ten years ago when he played »

‘La La Land’ Review

13 January 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, Amiée Conn, Terry Walters, Thom Shelton, Callie Hernandez, Jessica Rothe, Sonoya Mizuno, J.K. Simmons, Jason Fuchs | Written and Directed by Damien Chazelle

The third film from Damien Chazelle, in what might be dubbed his “Jazz Trilogy”, La La Land eschews the New Wave immediacy of Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench and the psychological horror notes of Whiplash, and brings us a blast of Golden Age musical energy. La La Land arrives on a zephyr of hype; and while it’s not up to the standard of his previous feature, it has a certain charm of its own.

Except, it’s not really its own. Like The Artist before it, La La Land is an awards-friendly picture – proudly presented in “Cinemascope” – which is inextricably wedded to past glories. Yet I’m not sure its modern elements are entirely comfortable in the relationship. »

BAFTA Awards: Ryan Gosling Lands First-Ever Nomination

10 January 2017 2:47 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Given Ryan Gosling's impressive status as both a Hollywood A-lister and indie darling, many would be forgiven for assuming the star had at least a couple of BAFTA nominations under his belt.  

But while the actor has been recognized by the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Independent Spirit Awards, Teen Choice Awards (of course...The Notebook) and the London Film Critics Circle Awards for a body of work that includes Drive, Half Nelson, Blue Valentine, Crazy Stupid Love and Lars and the Real Girl, he had yet to be given BAFTA's approval.

Until 2017.

Ryan Gosling’s Hidden Gems

9 January 2017 10:50 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Like many film fans, I’m able to recall a long list of actors I admire and enjoy the work of. However, there aren’t many who also appear repeatedly on my ‘Hot Damn’ Pinterest board. Ryan Gosling, who found fame in the big screen adaptation of romantic drama The Notebook, is perhaps one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and with his latest feature La La Land released this week, he’s about to become even hotter property (if that’s even possible).

However, it hasn’t always been sunshine and rainbows (and long, passionate kisses in the rain) for Ryan. If you’re interested in getting to know him on a deeper level, our hidden gem choices might just be what you’re looking for.

Weinstein Executive Dan Guando Joins Bloom as President of Production

4 January 2017 6:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In an expansion move, sales-financing company Bloom has hired veteran Weinstein Company executive Dan Guando to the newly created post of president of production.

Guando will report to company co-founder Alex Walton and will oversee and grow Bloom’s film slate, along with broaden its business in content creation and ownership. Guando will relocate from New York City to Los Angeles.

Guando worked at the Weinstein Co. for 12 years, most recently serving as the U.S. head of acquisitions, production, and development. During his tenure, he oversaw the acquisition and release of “The Imitation Game,” “The Artist,” “Fruitvale Station,” “Philomena,” “Snowpiercer,” “Blue Valentine,” and “The Founder.”

Bloom was founded by Walton and producer/financier Ken Kao in 2014 and has specialized in backing adult dramas. It announced in September at the Toronto Film Festival that it was launching international sales on the South American drama “Bel Canto,” starring Julianne Moore and »
