Owen Gleiberman’s Top 5 Memories From the Cannes Film Festival

11 May 2016 3:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I‘ve had countless good times at Cannes (watching Jean-Luc Godard toy with press questions like a highbrow executioner, hanging out with a what-am-i-doing-here? Howard Stern), but here are the five peak experiences that have stayed with me the most:

(1) Meeting Mark Wahlberg in the Majestic Hotel bar.

It was early in his screen career, just after his breakthrough role in “Fear” (the 1996 stalker thriller that co-starred Reese Witherspoon), and he thanked me for singling out his performance in my review. He was dressed in a conservative cream-colored suit and dark tie, and I noticed how small he seemed: just about my height (5-foot-7), without any overt Calvin Klein- poster muscle bulk. The most striking thing about him, though, was his meticulous boy-next-door politeness. He was so not Marky Mark that I thought, “This little chat is the best acting I’ve seen him do.” I knew right then that »

Lee Daniels departs upcoming Richard Pryor biopic

9 May 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels (The Butler, The Paperboy) has departed the upcoming biopic about legendary comedian Richard Pryor.

The Precious director has had to leave the project, currently in pre-production, due to scheduling conflicts with his hit television show Empire (for which he is showrunner) as well as his new show Star, which has recently been ordered for a full season by Fox.

It is thought the plans for the film have not changed, and that The Weinstein Company are still pushing ahead with its planned October filming dates. In addition, Daniels’ departure should not affect the cast of the film, which has Mike Epps (Nina) set to star as Pryor alongside Oprah Winfrey (The Butler), Eddie Murphy (Mr. Church) and Kate Hudson (Mother’s Day).

Cannes archives: Screen's Jury Grid 2012 - winners and losers

4 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As Cannes approaches, Screen casts its eye back at the winners and losers of 2012 according to our jury of critics.

Screen International’s jury of international critics has long been a strong indicator as to what will take the top prizes at the Cannes Film Festival – and 2012 was no different.

Sharing the Jury Grid’s top spot in 2012 were Cristian Mungiu’s Romanian drama Beyond the Hills and Michael Haneke’s heart-breaking Amour.

Both films scored 3.3 out of 4 and Amour went away with the festival’s coveted Palme d’Or.

Amour was Haneke’s second film to win the Cannes top prize, after 2009’s chilling pre-war drama The White Ribbon.

Beyond the Hills also performed strongly, winning awards for best screenplay and best actress for its two leading ladies Cristina Flutur and Cosmina Stratan. Director Mungiu has another shot at the Palme d’Or this year with Graduation (Bacalaureat).

Tie-breaker

It was a year for ties, with »

Who Will Be This Year's "Out-of-Nowhere" Oscar Nominee?

3 January 2016 5:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Coco here, ready to talk about the current Oscar race and the surprises that might pop up.

Last week, we discussed SAG's bizarre taste. The math works against it but we're desperately hoping the Academy breaks free of their influence. Perhaps we should focus our hope on a recent wave of surprising, "out-of-nowhere" nominations at the Oscars.  Ever since 2011 (the year the Academy turned Best Picture into a flexible category with as little as 5 and as many as 10 nominees), there's been at least one acting nominee that landed on Oscar's list without being previously nominated at either the Golden Globes, SAG, or BAFTA.

Here are the stats...

2011 - The shocking inclusion of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close in Best Picture came with the legendary Max von Sydow in tow for his mute performance in Best Supporting Actor. 

2012 - Everyone was surprised by the amount of support Silver Linings Playbook had »
