2010 Los Angeles Film Festival: Official Film List

17 May 2010 6:00 AM, PDT | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

The 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival is set to run June 17-27 in a brand new location. Oh, it’s still in L.A, but it’s moving across town, from Westwood — where it’s been held the past few years — all the way over to Downtown.

The main “hub” for the fest will be the new L.A. Live complex, but there will also be screenings at other locations, such as the Downtown Independent and Redcat theaters. The city is really trying to build downtown up into a major arts and culture hub, so the festival moving there fits in with that agenda. Film Independent, the organization that runs Laff, also runs the annual Independent Spirit Awards, an event that also moved downtown — from Santa Monica — this year.

On Bad Lit, I tend to like to put up festival lineups that include days and times of screenings. However, since I »

'Hurt Locker' tops BAFTA Awards with six wins

21 February 2010 3:05 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"The Hurt Locker" isn't feeling any pain right now.

Following on the heels of an original screenplay prize at the Writers Guild of America awards, "The Hurt Locker" took an impressive six awards home from the 2010 Orange British Academy Film Awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars, on Sunday (Feb. 21).

The Iraq war drama won for best film, best director for Kathryn Bigelow, original screenplay for Mark Boal, cinematography, editing and sound.

"The Hurt Locker" has been on a roll lately. Besides the WGA, the Directors Guild of America also recognized Bigelow with their top prize. With the Oscars just around the corner, it bodes well for "The Hurt Locker."

Of interest to the "Twilight" fans is Kristen Stewart's win for the Orange Rising Star Award. Stewart, who plays Bella in the "Twilight" saga and stars in the Sundance hits "The Runaways" and "Welcome to the Rileys," beat out Carey Mulligan, »

British Academy Film Awards: The Winners

21 February 2010 12:58 PM, PST | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

As the great and good are quickly ushered out of London's salubrious Royal Opera House, shoved into the nearest waiting limo and whisked to their respective after-show parties, the time has come to tally and take stock of the big winners at this year's British Academy Film Awards.

As with all of the major films awards of 2010 thus far, the big battle at this year's Baftas was between James Cameron's Avatar and his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker and the big winner on the night was Ms Bigelow who blew away all the competition with a grand total of six awards including (surprisingly but brilliantly) Best Film and Best Director. Avatar, meanwhile, was relegated to two relatively minor awards for Best Production Design and Best Special Effects.

Quite how this will affect the runners and the riders for this year's Oscars remains to be seen but it »

2010 BAFTA Nominations

21 January 2010 1:09 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

The nominations for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards were announced this morning, and leading with eight each are An Education, Avatar, and The Hurt Locker.  The line-up looks much like what we’ve seen in earlier awards with the obvious skew towards British-born selections like Carey Mulligan, underrated comedy In the Loop, and first time director Duncan Jones.

Notable snubs include Bright Star shut out in every category but costume, Avatar missing a spot for screenplay to The Hangover, and Sam Rockwell for Moon.

Winners will be announced February 21.  Here are the nominees:

The Brits don't rock the boat.

Robert here, with a quick take on the BAFTA Nominations announced this morning.  Here are the nominees with a few comments.

Best Film

Avatar

An Education

The Hurt Locker

Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire L

Up In The Air

Ahhh, the days of five nominees flashing back.  All expected to make the Oscar final 10 (and perhaps a little helpful push for the sophisticated An Education).

Outstanding British Film

An Education

Fish Tank

In The Loop

Moon

Nowhere Boy

Director

Avatar James Cameron

District 9 Neill Blomkamp

An Education Lone Scherfig

The Hurt Locker Kathryn Bigelow

Inglourious Basterds Quentin Tarantino

Those who believe District 9 is peaking will have much to squawk about here.  It will still take much to break into what's the current expected five.  Still, thank you BAFTA for throwing in a few differences here and there.

BAFTA Nominees Announced; Avatar, The Hurt Locker, and An Education Lead with 8 Nominations

21 January 2010 8:11 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Brits certainly like our flicks with Avatar and The Hurt Locker scoring eight nominations each from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).  However, they didn’t overlook one of their own accomplished films with An Education also grabbing eight nominations.  But what’s really impressive about the BAFTA nominations isn’t where they’ll most likely overlap with the Oscar nominations, but where they’re going to diverge.  District 9 has seven nominations and matches Avatar in every category except Best Picture and Best Director (but it also has a Best Screenplay nomination, while Avatar does not).  I am a little surprised that in their Best Supporting Actor category, they overlooked Peter Capaldi for In the Loop, but you have to love a country where Andy Serkis can get nominated for Best Actor (that’s not meant ironically; it truly is great–we should’ve nominated »

2010 BAFTA Nominations Announced

21 January 2010 1:39 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

2009 was an amazing year for British film. The BAFTA longlist has  James Cameron’s Avatar and Jason Reitman’s Up In The Air go up against Tarantino’s glorious Basterds and our pick of the year, Duncan Jones’ sublime Moon, we also have A Single Man and An Education showcasing a wealth of talent.

In The Loop is picking up screenwriting awards and Carey Mulligan’s disappointment at the Golden Globes earlier this week may be short lived. Will Avatar leaves will a handful of golden faces to go with its solar system of globes? That so many great films are being placed under a BAFTA shaped spotlight is a testament to the variety and capability of the actors, directors and crews working today.

The BAFTA shortlist is a clear indication that there is much to celebrate in the industry and while the winners may divide critics and audiences when »
