Rupert Everett: I Never Got a Job in Hollywood After Coming Out

30 December 2010 10:09 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Rupert Everett spoke to the UK's BBC's Radio 4 about his views on Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general, discussing what happened to his career following his announcement that he is gay. He also took a shot at Jennifer Aniston and straight actors playing homosexual characters.When asked about the professional reaction he received after he came out of the closet, Everett responded, "Nothing very much [in terms of Hollywood reaction]. I just never got a job there, and I never got a job here, after [coming out]. I did a couple of films, I was very lucky at the beginning of my career... and then, I never had another job here for ten years probably and I moved to Europe." Despite a general view to the contrary, Everett calls Hollywood "an extremely conservative world" that "pretends to be a liberal world."Earlier, he said he felt, "show business is ideally suited for heterosexuals, it's a very heterosexual business, »

Everett Takes Aim At Aniston, Firth

29 December 2010 11:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Outspoken actor Rupert Everett is making quick enemies of Jennifer Aniston and fellow Brit Colin Firth, branding her career choices "tasteless" and his performance in movie musical Mamma Mia! "career suicide".

In a BBC radio rant, the My Best Friend's Wedding star admits he can't understand why the two A-listers still have careers in the film industry after consistent film flops - and he used Aniston's turn in box office bombs The Switch, The Bounty Hunter and Love Happens as a prime example.

He says, "If you look and analyze the careers of many, many stars, you'll find that they're mostly sustained by the business. I'm not going to start naming names of people whose films have not succeeded at the box office, but you'll find there's lots of women and lots of men in the business that the powers that be decide are right for their business, and they'll stand with them for quite a long time.

"Ok, something will go wrong, like Jennifer Aniston will have one too many total flops, but she's still a member of that club... Like a star forming in the universe, things will swirl around her and it will suddenly solidify into another vital tasteless romcom (romantic comedy)."

Everett went on to call out Firth, despite the fact he shone in last year's A Single Man and is a favourite to collect a Best Actor Oscar for his role in The King's Speech.

The gay star still can't get past Firth's turn in 2008's Mamma Mia!

He explains, "Colin Firth I don't think was at all good in Mamma Mia! You know, I would have thought it was almost a careericide (career suicide)." »

‘Winter’s Bone,’ ‘King’s Speech’, ‘Toy Story 3?, and ‘Never Let Me Go’ Ineligible for WGA Awards

29 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Don't expect to see Winter's Bone, King's Speech, Toy Story 3, Never Let Me Go, and How to Train Your Dragon nominated for the WGA Awards. The Writers Guild of America have revealed the list of eligible films, and none of the previously mentioned highly acclaimed movies/screenplays are on the ballot. Before you get up in arms, you must realize that the guild's rules restrict nominations to productions aren't produced by WGA members or under WGA guidelines. Other films missing from the WGA ballot include Biutiful, The Ghost Writer, Nowhere Boy, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and The Way Back. Of the animated feature films, Zack Snyder's Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole passed, while more highly acclaimed movies like Pixar's Toy Story 3 and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon were deemed ineligible. Last year, several of the high-profile award contenders weren't eligible for WGA Awards, »

King's Speech and Toy Story 3 Disqualified from WGA Awards

29 December 2010 3:52 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Every year we make sure to report on the winners of the WGA awards, which honor the best screenplays of the year. The reason this event is so important is because winners of WGA awards have gone on to win the Oscar for Best Screenplay 11 out of the last 16 times. This year, however, WGA has announced that only 76 screenplays are eligible to receive their award, disqualifying several major contenders, including "The King's Speech," "Toy Story 3," "Winter's Bone," "Blue Valentine," "Another Year," "The Ghost Writer," "Never Let Me Go" and "Scott Pilgrim vs the World." "The King's Speech" and "Winter's Bone" have been impressing critics and stood a good chance to win the Oscar for Best Screenplay, but those chances have now been hurt by WGA. The Writers Guild does not simply give out awards for being the best screenplay. Instead, the guild only honors those screenplays that are produced »

Sound On Sight’s Best Films of 2010 part 4

29 December 2010 12:48 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

#1 – Black Swan

Directed by Darren Aronofsky

Darren Aronofsky does not have a medium setting. However one might feel about any of this films – from the agitated anti-drug parable Requiem for a Dream to the time-bending metaphysical sci-fi mini-epic The Fountain to working-man’s tragedy The Wrestler – it’s difficult to argue that he holds back in any respect. Black Swan acts as a sort of greatest-hits of Aronofsky’s past pet themes – contorted bodies (Requiem), pathological obsession (Pi), and the transformational/destructive properties of the performing arts (Wrestler), but in execution it takes a bold leap in a different direction, throwing caution to the wind and delivering an over-the-top, consistently heightened, and gloriously insane film that isn’t afraid to skirt with the ridiculous in order to engage with its high-art millieu and troubled central figure.

Both a deeply Freudian melodrama and a body-horror nightmare, Black Swan is anything but subtle. »

Kings Speech star Firth eager to play “edgier” roles.

28 December 2010 6:09 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Colin Firth is apparently keen to shed his serious movie image in favour of playing “a transvestite or stripper” on the silver screen in a future film.

The British actor shot to fame in a 1990s TV adaption of Jane Austen’s Pride And Prejudice and has since gone on to play starring roles in The Girl With A Pearl Earing and A Single Man, directed by first timer Tom Ford.

Firth is tipped for Oscar glory next February with his portrayal of stuttering monarch King George VI in the new royal movie The Kings Speech - but the actor admits he’d like to take on a very different role next.

He says, “I’m dying to be a transvestite or a stripper or a pop star. They just don’t tend to come my way.” In fact, Firth has tasted the flambuoyant only once as a closet gay »

Firth Eyeing Controversial Movie Role

28 December 2010 4:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Colin Firth is keen to shed his serious movie image - he'd love to play "a transvestite or a stripper" on the big screen.

The British actor shot to fame in a 1990s TV adaption of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice and has since gone on to play stoic roles in films like Girl with a Pearl Earring and first-time director Tom Ford's acclaimed 2009 movie A Single Man.

Firth is tipped for Oscar glory next year with his portrayal of stuttering monarch King George VI in new royal drama The King's Speech - but the actor admits he'd like to take on a very different role next.

He says, "I'm dying to be a transvestite or a stripper or a pop star. They (roles) just don't tend to come my way."

He had a taste for the flamboyant when he played a closeted gay businessman in hit Abba movie musical Mamma Mia! »

Colin Firth Likes Growing Old

27 December 2010 7:50 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Colin Firth likes having a "weathered" face. The British actor, who worked alongside fashion designer Tom Ford on his debut movie "A Single Man" in 2009, likes growing old because he thinks he had a "boring" face when he was younger.

"When I was about 25, I remember looking at older actors I was working with - brilliant older actors - and thinking, 'I can't wait to get a few wrinkles'," the 50-year-old star said. "I had such an utterly boring face at that age and longed for a bit of weathering and a bit of texture."

However, the Oscar-nominated thespian doesn't want to look too old, adding, "Just as long as I don't fall apart completely."

He also believes being middle-aged is "interesting" because he can play many different characters in movies. He added to The Scotsman newspaper, "I think middle age is interesting. You have a past and, hopefully, a future, »

Scott Feinberg’S Top 10 Films Of ’10

Please Note: The following rankings and remarks reflect my personal opinions and do/will not in any way impact my projections or analysis on this site, wherein I strive above all else to correctly forecast what will happen, not what I believe should happen. My demonstrated ability to do that over the years is what has led most of you to my site, and any failure to do that will undoubtedly lead you away from it, so you can rest assured that I mean it when I say that one has/will have no bearing on the other.

Scott Feinberg’s Top 10 Films of 2010

1. “The Social Network” (Columbia, 10/1, PG-13, trailer)

I distinctly remember sitting in a movie theater over the summer when the first teaser for “the Facebook movie” began playing, prompting groans and snickering all around me — stuff along the lines of, “What’s it gonna be about? A server crashing? »

The Best Blu-ray Discs of 2010

25 December 2010 7:19 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Best Contemporary Titles

Winner: "Avatar: Extended Edition"

Runner-up: "Inception"

Doesn't matter what you thought of the film, I enjoyed it but didn't particularly love it, James Cameron fully delivers on his promise to make the 'Extended Edition' Blu-ray release worth the double-dip as it has to be one the single deepest and richest releases for a single film on the market.

The transfer is pure reference quality, the inserted new footage in the three alternate cuts available is exactly the same quality as the rest of the cut, and the sound design is awe-inspiring. Extras are disgustingly rich - three near feature-length docos, nearly an hour of cut footage, countless featurettes, artwork and a beautiful looking if a tiny bit awkwardly designed packaged set.

Picking a runner-up wasn't that difficult. Christopher Nolan's puzzle box of a film "Inception" is a trippy but whip smart and bold heist film »

Shortlists are announced for Guardian First Film and First Album awards

23 December 2010 4:39 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Will A Single Man overcome Monsters? Can Rumer conquer Mount Kimbie? Here are the nominees

An alien invasion movie, a stately adaptation of a Christopher Isherwood story about a man in mourning, a vibrant piece of UK hip-hop and the debut from Burt Bacharach's latest protege are among the contenders for this year's Guardian First Film and First Album awards, the shortlists for which are announced today.

The awards – won last year by Gideon Koppel for Sleep Furiously, his documentary about a dying Welsh hill village, and the xx for their eponymous album – reward the best film made by a first-time director from anywhere in the world, and the best debut album from a British artist. Koppel and the xx will be among the judges for the 2010 awards.

The biggest films on the shortlist are Monsters, the low-budget alien invasion movie directed by the young Briton Gareth Edwards, A Single Man, »

Guardian First Film award: nominations

23 December 2010 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Four Lions, Monsters and The Arbor are among the releases in the running for this year's debut film prize

Six Brits, three Americans, and a Frenchman make up the shortlist for this year's Guardian first film award, and their work spans almost every genre imaginable. Hardcore war doco Restrepo goes head to head with puppet-festooned biopic Gainsbourg; the CGI aliens of Monsters will slug it out with the impeccably tailored grief of A Single Man. You'd be hard pushed to recognise any of the film-makers involved as beginners, so accomplished is their work. But first-timers they are, and it will be a tricky job for our panel of judges, which includes the Guardian's film critic Peter Bradshaw, last year's winner Gideon Koppel (director of Sleep Furiously), and actor Saffron Burrows – whose decision will be announced on 28 January.

K's film retrospective; the best ten of 2010

23 December 2010 1:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Getting into the swing of things, I have noticed my fellow colleagues are posting their best, worst and other assortments of lists.  I will keep mine straight and to the point, and have chosen ten films I have seen this year, that have for different reasons had a profound impact on myself personally and/or the way I view cinema as a medium and as an art. I hope you enjoy the list and more to the point hope you see these films, to see what I am raving about!

Number 10Enter The Void

Gaspar Noe's seminal, (both literally in terms of semen and relating to his work) Enter The Void is an epic mind fuck. It is the simple story of two siblings, one of them dies in Tokyo right near the beginning of the film and then... his body freely floats through the neon nightmare, delving »

2010 In Review: Jack’s Films of the Year

20 December 2010 2:13 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Initially, I could only think of a few real stand-out films of this last year, until I trawled through the UK release list for 2010 and found myself with a long list of twenty-three films, which by my reckoning means that on average, there’s been a great film in cinemas just less than once a fortnight, which seems pretty good going to me.

Here then, are my top ten followed by, in no particular order, a list of thirteen honourable mentions.

1. Bad Lieutenant

When Nicolas Cage met Werner Herzog the result was this bizarre and exciting film, which lit a firework under the arse of the crime genre and ran off giggling manically.

2. Inception

Christopher Nolan delivered yet another cinematic tour de force with this visually rich and debate-starting spectacle.

3. The Secret in Their Eyes

Winner of last year’s Oscar for best foreign feature, this slow-burning, generation-spanning whodunit was captivating and moving. »

HollywoodNews.com: The lovely Julianne Moore, who I especially loved in ‘Far From Heaven,’ ‘The Hours’ and last year’s ‘A Single Man,’ received a Golden Globe Award nomination this week for her performance in ‘The Kids Are All Right.’

In an interview with ‘The La Times’ The Envelope,’ she discussed how it is so matter-of-facrt that the parents in this movie (played by Moore and Annette Bening) are lesbians.

Best Films of 2010 – Ricky D’s List from Sound On Sight

15 December 2010 7:39 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Best Animated Feature

The Secret Of Kells

Directed by Tomm Moore

I realize The Secret Of Kells was nominated for an Academy Award in 2009, but technically the film was only released in 2010 and quite frankly I don’t care much for the Oscars. The Secret of Kells remains a feast for the eyes with its meticulous drawings, a throwback to the more stylized, painterly work of decades past. Steeped in magic, history, religion and Celtic mytholosgy, the subject matter may be a tad obscure for American audiences but at least it offers a refreshing alternative to Hollywood fare. Quite unlike anything I’ve ever seen before, The Secret Of Kells features a powerful message, appealing characters and a unique visual style.

Special mention: Toy Story 3

Best Documentary

Exit Through the Gift Shop

Directed by Banksy
