See Tilda Swinton transform, rehearse in new 'Snowpiercer' behind-the-scenes feature

17 December 2014 6:12 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

During her Gotham Awards tribute speech, Tilda Swinton name-checked one unexpected collaborator just before exiting stage: Chris Lyons, the man behind Fangs FX. A prosthetic effects company specializing in dental wonders, Swinton personally rang Lyons for four films that played in 2014: "Only Lovers Left Alive," "Zero Theorem," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," and "Snowpiercer." For Swinton, the makeover is part of the job. If she can use special effects makeup to inch just a little closer to her vision of the character, she’ll leap at the chance. A new behind-the-scenes video gives those who bow at the Swinton altar a chance to see her undergo this metamorphosis, going from "Snowpiercer" makeup chair to on-set rehearsal with director Bong Joon-ho. In the video, the droll Swinton describes her "Minister Mason" work as "very naturalistic, very delicate, very subtle… it’s a nose job, let’s face it." Even in this snippet of footage, »

Watch: How Tilda Swinton Transformed for 'Snowpiercer'

17 December 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Can Tilda Swinton snag a surprise Oscar nod for her supporting performance as sinister Minister Mason in "Snowpiercer"? Unlike many of the year's more competitive categories, the Best Supporting Actress race isn't yet locked, so Swinton, Supporting Actress winner for 2007's "Michael Clayton," is in the club for this already iconic role. She wowed this year not only in summer hit "Snowpiercer," but also as a vampire in Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" and in Wes Anderson's Best Picture contender "The Grand Budapest Hotel" in a minor, but colorful, role. Our video interview with her is here. »

Oscars: Is ‘Snowpiercer’ Actress Tilda Swinton Being Underestimated?

16 December 2014 7:36 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

The holiday season is always a bit hectic, so it is understandable if you, like me until recently, failed to notice something that’s actually been brewing under the surface of the awards discussion for some time: namely, the grassroots support behind the best supporting actress Oscar candidacy of Tilda Swinton for her work in Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer.

On Monday, the 54-year-old’s performance as a gender-neutral politician in the dystopian RADiUS-twc drama — which comes on top of other chameleonic work this year in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel (a best ensemble SAG nominee) and Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive — was nominated for the best supporting actress Critics’ Choice Award, a major profile boost.

The Oscar Hopefuls: Too Many Great Supporting Performances Are Falling Through the Cracks

16 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A few months ago, Pete Hammond of Deadline proposed that the Academy should increase the number of Oscar nominees in the lead actor category, because the “traffic jam is just too much.” That’s just the male leads, apparently, as he was focusing on the “just under 30″ possibilities for the actor race and acknowledge that once again the lead actress category is struggling to find worthy contenders (see our response to the claim that there aren’t enough to fill five slots). Obviously there are more male lead roles out there because there are more movies with male protagonists, but never mind the two lead categories, both of which should stay just as they are. The two supporting acting awards, however, should be allowed more names in the ring. There’s never any shortage of great performances in lesser parts, and as usual this year we’re seeing some deserving players go unrecognized. Two »

Guess what? Toronto critics love 'Boyhood' too...

16 December 2014 10:39 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though Circuit underdogs "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Inherent Vice" came close to the top prize, the Toronto Film Critics Association followed suit on Tuesday when it named Richard Linklater’s "Boyhood" as the best film of 2014. Collectively, the group called it "a cinematic masterpiece that evokes beauty in life and the inevitable passage of time," adding an honor to Linklater for his "singular achievement." Additional Tfca awards include another Best Actor win for Tom Hardy in "Locke" and a much-needed nod to Isao Takahata’s stunning animated drama "The Tale of the Princess Kaguya." Along with its award winners, Tfca named Denis Villeneuve’s "Enemy," Michael Dowse’s "The F Word," and Xavier Dolan’s "Mommy" as its three finalists for the Rogers Best Canadian Film Award.  “In an exceptional year for Canadian cinema, we’ve chosen three boldly directed films that are so dissimilar it’s almost hard »

Critics’ Choice Awards: Noms Give Hope to On-the-Bubble Oscar Hopefuls

15 December 2014 8:09 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

I would venture a guess that a handful of longish-shot Oscar hopefuls — among them Unbroken’s Angelina Jolie, Gone Girl’s David Fincher, The Grand Budapest Hotel’s Ralph Fiennes, Two Days, One Night’s Marion Cotillard, Inherent Vice’s Josh Brolin and Snowpiercer’s Tilda Swinton — could have quoted Dumb and Dumber’s Jim Carrey on Monday morning when the Broadcast Film Critics Association announced its nominees for the 20th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: “So you’re telling me there’s a chance!”

That’s because the Bfca smiled upon each of these individuals with major nominations, whereas few, if any, other major organizations have done the same.

2015 Critics Choice Awards Nominations Led by 'Birdman' with 13 Nominations

15 December 2014 7:11 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Birdman is clearly a favorite this awards season, at least when it comes to nominations as it once again tops a list of nominees, this time the 2015 Critics Choice Awards as it leads the field with 13 total nominations followed by The Grand Budapest Hotel, which continues to surge this awards season with 11 nominations, and Boyhood with eight. Full disclosure, I'm part of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca), which nominates and votes on these awards, but I'm a little nervous my nominees this year weren't counted as I mistakenly missed the deadline by a few hours thinking it was on Saturday, not Friday. Oops, though looking at these nominations it doesn't seem as if it would have mattered. For example, I don't see Locke anywhere, Carrie Coon (Gone Girl) didn't get a supporting actress nomination, A Most Wanted Man didn't get an adapted screenplay nomination, no nomination for The Raid 2 in Best Action Movie, »

‘Birdman,’ ‘Grand Budapest’ Top Critics Choice Awards Nominations

15 December 2014 6:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With 13 bids, “Birdman” led nominations for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, followed by 11 for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a one-two punch for Fox Searchlight. “Boyhood” followed with eight.

The noms for Angelina Jolie (“Unbroken”) and Ava DuVernay (“Selma”) mean that two of the six director contenders are women. Among the films earning more attention than in this year’s previous kudos announcements: “Interstellar” (seven); “Guardians of the Galaxy” (five) and “Unbroken” (four).

The voting, by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn.,  is one of the more reliable Oscar predictors, in terms of winners. The group has matched the eventual Oscar-winning best pic in 12 of the last 15 years.

As for nominations, the Ccma are a good guide for what’s popular in awards conversations, but several factors limit the noms’ powers as an Oscar omen.

For one thing, this group cites six contenders in most categories, compared to five from the Academy. »

‘Birdman’, ‘Budapest’ And ‘Boyhood’ Get Key Oscar Boost To Lead Critics’ Choice Movie Award Nominations; Jolie Rebounds From Globe Snub

15 December 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Continuing its romp through the critics kudos this awards season, Fox Searchlight’s Birdman drew a whopping 13 nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. In fact it’s a big day for Fox in general as Searchlight’s March release, The Grand Budapest Hotel was remembered to the tune of 11 nominations, while big Fox scored 6 nominations with Gone Girl. All three compete for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and significant acting nods. This is a big boost in particular for Budapest, coming on the heels of its SAG nod for Outstanding Cast as well as four key Golden Globe nominations.  Usually films opening as early as March are largely forgotten when it comes to Best Picture attention, but Budapest could be a rare exception in recent years if this triumph for the Wes Anderson comedy is repeated at the Oscars.  The last film that opened as early as March, »

Critics' Choice Movie Awards nominations crystallize the Oscar season so far

15 December 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association's (Bfca*) annual announcement of nominees is particularly informative for one key reason: it's a broad assessment of the year from a vast voting body. The only two such events prior to the end of the year tend to be this and the Screen Actors Guild's nominations announcement, each setting the early stage in terms of what seems to be appealing across a wide spectrum. Other guilds then add to that equation in January. So where did the Bfca's chips end up this season? For starters, in what has become a trend for critics groups that provide a nominations stage, Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" led overall with 13 mentions. And in what has also become a trend with critical precursors, Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" (11) and Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" (8) were right up there, too, making starkly clear what the critical darlings are this season. »

Exclusive: How Tattoos Helped Emma Stone Find Her Character In 'Birdman'

15 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Emma Stone may have a tattoo on her wrist, but her character in Birdman has a lot more.

In tonight’s episode of Hollywood Sessions on Epix, Stone, 26, explains the meaning behind the hand tattoos seen on film in a discussion with fellow actresses Patricia Arquette (Boyhood), Laura Dern (Wild), and Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer). ETonline has your first exclusive look at their conversation with Los Angeles Times film writers Rebecca Keegan and Mark Olsen.

“We sort of came to the conclusion that there are a lot of young girls now, in La specifically I’ve seen it, that get tattoos all over their hands at a really young age, and it’s a very strange thing to do because it’s forever and you’re going to have these tiny hand tattoos,” she says, “So we covered her hands in tattoos because the sort of commitment of that idea and how flippant she is about something so that »
