Oscar voter tries defending Academy's respect for diversity, fails

27 January 2016 5:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to chapter 4,535 of #OscarsSoWhite, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter: An Oscar voter named Rutanya Alda, a member of the Academy's actors branch, wrote a letter in defense of AMPAS' current voting practices. In it, she defends the Academy's historical appreciation of nonwhite performers with a variety of empty stats and uselessly vague anecdotes. Read the whole thing, but here we'll be responding to the grimmest portions of her plea. We begin with a shockingly assertive, wildly unnecessary claim: "Actors are the least racist people I have ever known in my life." Is this an actual talking point? Alda somehow ranked the racism within every profession in her social orbit, and -- without citing any sources -- came to the conclusion that the sprawlingly broad world of actors is unified in its lack of racism. That strikes me as a reach! I learned from the news once that Mel Gibson is a very racist person, »

An Aspiring Screenwriter Explains Why #OscarsSoWhite Is Such a Huge Problem

23 January 2016 | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

My Oscar outfit will be an azure blue tuxedo - probably made by some fancy, talented designer whose brand I can't pronounce properly, but I'll owe everything to them for my sharp look. My mom will be my date, and my palms will be sweaty as I walk up to the stage, hoping that I do not trip and fall on my face like Jennifer Lawrence. I'll reach out for my golden Oscar trophy and then, in the blink of an eye, I'll wake up. That's what it feels like to be an aspiring African-American filmmaker whenever the Oscar nominations are announced and not one person of color is nominated for an acting award in any of the big four categories. It feels like your dream has been ripped away from you, and you start to cope with the reality that the prestigious Oscars may not be the most inviting »

Director Juan Antonio Bayona Rumored for 'Jurassic World 2'

20 January 2016 5:20 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last week, it was reported that director Juan Antonio Bayona had dropped out of Paramount Pictures’ “World War Z 2” due to a long delay in production on the planned sequel. News outlets suggest that Universal Pictures is eyeing Bayona to helm their highly-anticipated sequel to “Jurassic World” since director Colin Trevorrow has signed on to direct “Star Wars: Episode IX” for Disney.

Trevorrow is still much involved with the follow-up to “Jurassic World” as the director wrote the current screenplay for “Jurassic World 2” with his writing partner Derek Connolly and now Universal is now searching for a suitable replacement and are definitely considering Bayona for the job.

Universal Pictures’ “Jurassic World” starring Chris Pratt (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) and Bryce Dallas Howard (“The Help”) grossed over $1.6 billion dollars last summer and the studio recently announced a June 22nd, 2018 release date. Bayona is said to have a long standing relationship with producer Frank Marshall and Universal. »

David Ayer and Zack Snyder talk about Jared Leto and the evolution of The Joker

20 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In addition to releasing a brand-new full-length trailer for Suicide Squad [watch it here], director David Ayer and DC Extended Universe executive Zack Snyder took part in an interview with USA Today where the pair discussed both the historical richness, and future for The Joker.

“It’s a scary character to tackle,” Ayer says. “This iteration of him, people will realize there really is a continuity of history – there is a lot of respect for what the Joker represents, who he is as a character. He is the best known villain in fiction so there’s an incredible responsibility there to also be faithful to what he is but at the same time push him into this next world, next time, next phase.”

Ayer also commented on the Batman cameo in Suicide Squad, first seen in some set photos last year. “The hairs stand up on the back of your neck,” he says. »
