Telluride: Benedict Cumberbatch Leads Weinstein’s ‘Imitation Game’ Into Oscar Fray

31 August 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

For a film made by a director whom few in America have ever heard of, The Imitation Game certainly came into the Telluride Film Festival with a lot of buzz — having Sherlock‘s newly-minted Emmy winner Benedict Cumberbatch as its star and marketing maven Harvey Weinstein‘s Weinstein Co. as its distributor certainly didn’t hurt — but it will be leaving here with even more, thanks to a very well received world premiere on Friday evening at the Werner Herzog Theatre.

31 August 2014 3:45 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Now that the dust has settled on the Emmys, Gold Derby Editors Matt Noble, Charles Bright and Ralph Galvan joined me for one last slugfest to wrap things up in a neat little bow. Watch below as we dish the highlights and lowlights of this awardsfest and preview the upcoming Golden Globe and SAG Awards and even next year's Emmys. -Break- It is never too early to dish the Golden Globes and SAG Awards Join the red-hot debate in our fiery forums right now We all agreed that many of the night's big winners, like five-time Best Comedy Series champ "Modern Family" and repeat Best Drama Series winner "Breaking Bad" were no-brainers. But there was much to discuss including those crazy, "where did that come from" surprises in the movie and miniseries categories such as when mortal lock Matt Bomer ("The Normal Heart") was skunked out of a trophy by »

The Imitation Game review round-up: Cumberbatch tipped for awards glory

30 August 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival last night (August 29).

Benedict Cumberbatch stars in the historical drama as pioneering mathematician and scientist Alan Turing, whose code-breaking work at Bletchley Park proved vital for the Allies in World War II.

Digital Spy rounds up the critical reactions to Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley's highly-anticipated film.

Todd McCarthy - The Hollywood Reporter

"Benedict Cumberbatch is cornering the market on playing exceptionally brilliant problem solvers, first on television with his dazzling portrayal of a modern Sherlock Holmes and now on the big screen in a superb performance as Alan Turing, who cracked the Enigma code and helped win World War II.

"Engrossing, nicely textured and sadly tragic, The Imitation Game is overly reluctant to dive into the nitty gritty of how the man who's often called the father of artificial intelligence accomplished what he did, »

Telluride tattle: Could Emmy champ Benedict Cumberbatch win Oscar for 'The Imitation Game'?

30 August 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Never accuse Harvey Weinstein of not being willing to take a gamble. After all, he bought the rights to Morten Tyldum's WWII drama "The Imitation Game" based on just 15 minutes of footage and brought the finished film to Telluride on Friday. That latter move meant giving up a premium slot at the upcoming Toronto filmfest due to the its new policy demanding exclusivity for the first four days. However, his risks are paying off as the early buzz is very promising.  -Break- It is never too early to dish the Oscars Join the red-hot debate in our fiery forums right now Newly crowned Emmy champ Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock") plays Alan Turing, the British mathematician who cracked the German code known as Enigma and helped the Allies win the war. Keira Knightley is Joan Clarke, a colleague whom he romances to conceal his true sexual identity. After the war, he »

Review: Benedict Cumberbatch is the only puzzle worth solving in 'The Imitation Game'

30 August 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — There are two reasons Andrew Hodges' biography of Alan Turing references "The Enigma" in its title. The first is in reference to the Engima machine, the legendary secret code the Nazis used during World War II, which was solved by a secret UK military division lead by Turing. The second is Turing himself.  Known for his advancements in computer theory (look up Turing Machines), BBC News noted that Winston Churchill once referred to Turing as having made "the single biggest contribution to Allied victory in the war against Nazi Germany." Somehow he became a historical footnote until finally getting proper credit for his WWII accomplishments in the 1990s. Eventually he was pardoned for a "gross indecency" charge (which destroyed his life) by the Queen of England in 2013. He was a hero the Western world didn't know about for decades and in many ways the circumstances of his death »

Doctor Who complete reviews: Deep breath

29 August 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

2014. After the celebratory shenanigans of 2013, this year so far has been something of a head-scratching enigma in the land of Doctor Who. Whereas 2013's Psychic Paper showed up a balloon-doffing, missing episode recovering party animal, 2014's Psychic Paper draws a blank. The endless Missing Episode Omnishambles trudges wearily on, a bleary, pointless mess of internal politics, bickering and question dodging worthy of Chancellor Goth. Brand new episodes mysteriously leak online, prompting the question as to how it was so easy to shove them into the public domain in the first place. Even The Underwater Menace DVD has seemingly sunk without trace – look at that, I'm pining for The Underwater Menace, so obviously these are murky times.

Not even a brand new Doctor Who series can put paid to this unsure fog. Deep Breath is the first bid for new Doctor Peter Capaldi, who may be the 12th Doctor. Or the 13th. »

TV News: Longmire, Thrones, Wife, Blacklist

28 August 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Longmire

A&E has cancelled its western drama "Longmire" after three seasons. Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff starred in the drama which was the No. 1 scripted show in A&E's history. It will now be shopped to other networks.

This month's season three finale averaged 3.7 million total viewers and a lackluster 0.6 key demo rating - a drop of 16% and 45% respectively from the season fine. [Source: THR]

Game of Thrones

Actor and "Sherlock" co-creator Mark Gatiss is set to reprise his role as Tycho Nestoris, the world’s most fearsome banking executive, in the fifth season of HBO’s fantasy hit "Game of Thrones".

Gatiss is expected back on the set in Croatia next week. Gatiss made his debut last season in the episode "The Laws of Gods and Men" where his Braavosi bank team agreed to fund Stannis Baratheon‘s war effort to capture the Iron Throne from the Lannisters. [Source: EW]

Watch: Benedict Cumberbatch, James McAvoy & More Talk Acting, Warts and All

28 August 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Heads up, aspiring actors: watch UK leading men Benedict Cumberbatch, James McAvoy, Colin Farrell, Jim Broadbent and Hugh Dancy talk acting, fame, rejection, managing idiosyncratic directors and more in a special BAFTA video. With close-­up commentary and amorous camerawork, the interviews are certainly easy on the eyes--especially in the case of recent "Sherlock" Emmy winner and Oscar hopeful Cumberbatch, star of The Weinstein Company's “The Imitation Game," which hits Telluride this weekend. McAvoy, meanwhile, will soon be seen in "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them," the first in Ned Benson's three-part romantic epic costarring Jessica Chastain. »

What Makes the Emmys Such a Hard Show to Fix

28 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If the big banks were notoriously too big to fail, the TV awards process might finally have become too big to wrangle.

Granted, it’s now expected Emmy nominations and awards will yield gripes from fans and critics, lamenting programs and performers who were “snubbed,” along with the Television Academy’s historic blind spots toward areas like science fiction, fantasy — basically anything with aliens, zombies, vampires and dragons.

But even allowing for an element of hyperbole and ginned-up outrage, the cries about apples-and-oranges comparisons and category shopping seemed to crest this year. And when practically every major award chase can come with an asterisk, one has to wonder if we’ve moved beyond the customary Hollywood nips and tucks to the process, and require something more closely resembling an extreme makeover.

Host Seth Meyers took aim at the problem in his opening monologue, joking that the comedy field included shows »

28 August 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A three-day convention to celebrate Sherlock, previously due to be held this year, has been delayed.

Sherlocked The Event was meant to be held in late 2014 by Massive Events in association with Hartswood Films and Showmasters Ltd.

However, organisers have confirmed on Facebook that it has been hit by delays as they try to fix a date which most cast members can make.

The post reads: "This has been one of the hardest tasks we have ever had to deal with and we now understand how difficult it must be to film the actual tv show as so many of the main cast are incredibly busy and popular!

"We just wanted to let you all know that we really do care and we want to deliver the most incredible event we can and that is why things are taking a bit more time that we originally anticipated."

Game Of Thrones: Mark Gatiss Will Return For Season 5

28 August 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After agreeing (with some persuasion from Davos) to fund Stannis Baratheon's new war effort to seize the Iron Throne from the Lannisters in the season 4 episode "The Laws of Gods and Men", it appears Braavosi banker Tycho Nestoris will return next year to keep a close eye on his investment. EW report that Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who, The League Of Gentlemen) will reprise the role, and is expected on the Croatia set next week. Also, the site have an update on the recent report that a very famous scene from the books involving a naked Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister was being held up due to a conflict with a Dubrovnik church. Apparently that's "old news" now, and a new filming location has been sorted. So, great news all 'round then! »

The League Of Gentlemen discussing reunion says Reece Shearsmith

27 August 2014 11:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith have discussed the possibility of a League Of Gentlemen reunion...

Of busy men in the world of TV, Mark Gatiss is one of the busiest. As well as regularly chipping in with Doctor Who episodes, he is also a co-star and co-showrunner for Sherlock and presumably set to have an expanded role in the next season of Game Of Thrones.

However, former collaborator Reece Shearsmith (who has also been doing fine on his own with roles in The World’s End, A Field In England and the upcoming High Rise), has hinted that there may be one more project on Gatiss’ plate – a reunion with his former co-star and writing partner.

Shearsmith has confirmed recently that he, Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Jeremy Dyson have met to discuss a reunion. Whether or not said meeting of minds will result in more League Of Gentlemen episodes, or something else altogether, »

Martin Freeman has revealed that he found out about his Emmys win while in bed.

New Sherlock will be ‘devastating’ says Steven Moffat

26 August 2014 11:14 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Steven Moffat hints at tear-inducing Sherlock series 4 plans…

Although Sherlock series three may not have been a fan favourite, in certain corners of the internet at least, it was more than successful enough to secure as many future episodes as Moffat and Gatiss can write.

"We have a plan to top it — and actually I do think our plan is devastating," said Moffat of how the new series will compare to the last.

"We practically reduced our cast to tears by telling them the plan. Honestly, Mark and myself are so excited with what we've got coming up, probably more excited than we've ever been about Sherlock."

Pressed to discuss air-dates, Moffat used his trademark question-avoiding skills (and sarcasm): "When they go out is up to the BBC. And I am their loyal servant. I simply do what they ask me."

One of the biggest winners of last night's Emmy awards was the BBC's "Sherlock" which took home numerous honors including a writing award for writer/executive producer Steven Moffat.

The Snubs & Surprises Of the 2014 Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Don't expect a swift response to any communication sent to someone who works in the TV industry: last night was the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards (see the list of winners here), and the parties were going on long into the night. As we said this morning, "Breaking Bad," "Modern Family" and "Sherlock" were the big winners, with Bryan Cranston, Julianna Marguiles, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jim Parsons, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jessica Lange taking the leading actor trophies, and Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Ty Burrell, Allison Janney, Martin Freeman and Kathy Bates winning prizes for supporting roles. As it's been said here and elsewhere, it was among the least surprising awards shows in the history of awards shows, but that doesn't mean that there weren't a few shocks or injustices. Below, we've analyzed what we reckon were the most notable WTFs from last night's ceremony, but you can add your own in the comments section below. »
