AFI to Honor ‘Blue Velvet’ Cinematographer Frederick Elmes

18 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The American Film Institute has selected “Blue Velvet” cinematographer Frederick Elmes as this year’s recipient of its Franklin J. Schaffner Alumni medal.

The award is presented to an AFI alumnus who embodies the qualities of Schaffner — “talent, taste, dedication and commitment to quality storytelling in film and television.” Schaffner earned 28 Academy Award nominations during his 40-year career.

Elmes graduated from AFI in 1972 and received his first credit on David Lynch’s “Eraserhead” in 1977. He went on to work on Lynch’s “Blue Velvet” in 1986 and “Wild at Heart” in 1990. He won Independent Spirit Awards back to back years for “Wild at Heart” and Jim Jarmush’s “Night on Earth.”

Elmes won the National Society of Film Critics award for “Blue Velvet” and was nominated for a primetime Emmy for “In the Gloaming.”

Other credits include Tim Hunter’s “River’s Edge” (1986), Ang Lee’s “The Ice Storm (1997) and “Ride with the Devil »

Emmys: Allison Janney Goes Lead for ‘Mom’ as Campaigns Jockey for Position

24 April 2017 5:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After three-straight supporting actress Emmy nominations, including back-to-back wins, “Mom” star Allison Janney will be submitted in the lead actress comedy category for the show’s fourth season, Variety has learned.

Janney’s camp — spurred by press reaction suggesting lead consideration — felt the show had evolved to a place where it was more of a two-hander between Janney and co-star Anna Faris. And after all, changing categories didn’t hurt the 11-time nominee when she did it over a decade ago; Janney won twice in supporting for “The West Wing” and then twice again when she went lead.

These kinds of maneuvers often reflect an organic progression, but they can also be a reaction to the competitive environment. Changing to a thinner category could pave an easier path to recognition, etc. But Janney isn’t exactly moving into a weaker stream. Indeed, the comedy categories on the whole are as competitive as ever. Top »

Alex Jones Is Too Crazy For TV: Why Shows Can’t Pull Off Conspiracy-Theorist Characters

21 April 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Conspiracy talk-show host Alex Jones is such a dangerous cartoon that even parodies on TV series like “The X-Files” and “Homeland” can’t capture his lunacy.

The characters on those shows feature some depth, and offer more anger (they at least got that part right) than outright madness. Compare that to the Jones we see barking into the microphone on “Info Wars.” This week, the question of whether or not Jones is actually playing a frothing-at-the-mouth, tinfoil-hat salesman became a centerpiece of the host’s child custody dispute.

“I’m concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress,” said ex-wife Kelly Jones at a pretrial hearing, referencing a profanity-laced recent rant about Rep. Adam Schiff. “He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.” However, according to Jones’ attorney, Randall Wilhite, “He’s playing a character,” Wilhite told the court. “He is a performance artist. »

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to Direct “Captain Marvel”

19 April 2017 11:31 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Brie Larson as Captain Marvel: Fan art made by BossLogic

We finally know who’s going to helm “Captain Marvel.” After months of speculation and rumors, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have been announced as the directors of the highly anticipated Marvel project starring Oscar winner Brie Larson. Variety broke the news.

Best known for writing and directing critically acclaimed indies “Mississippi Grind” and “Half Nelson,” Boden and Fleck have been collaborating for over a decade. The biggest production budget they’ve worked with is probably $8 million for 2010’s “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” and “Captain Marvel’s” budget is sure to exceed $100 million, so this is a big step up for the twosome. The married couple has historically gravitated towards intimate character-driven dramas, so it will be very interesting to see their take on a special effects-laden blockbuster.

“Marvel made it clear they wanted a female guiding the ship on this film’s voyage,” Variety writes. Last summer, The Hollywood Reporter revealed the shortlist of directors being considered for the gig: Niki Caro (“The Zookeeper’s Wife”), Lesli Linka Glatter (“Homeland”), and Lorene Scafaria (“The Meddler”).

We like to think Larson played a part in ensuring “Captain Marvel” has a woman at its helm. The “Room” actress was recently asked how she thinks that depictions of female characters can improve, and she emphasized the need to focus on who works behind the scenes. Larson observed, “I think the best place to start would be more female film directors.”

According to Variety, Marvel “met with multiple contenders for the directing job, and sources say that [they] not only wanted to make sure that the search was thorough, but that the script was in the right shape before signing a director.” Boden and Fleck reportedly impressed Marvel “with their vision for the heroine.”

Meg LeFauve (“Inside Out”) and Nicole Perlman (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) are currently penning “Captain Marvel’s” script, “which follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight.”

When we asked Boden her advice for other female directors, she said, “I guess the first thing that comes to mind would go for any director, which is to try to be yourselves as directors — whether you’re in the room with a potential financier or on set with your actors.” The two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee continued, “Sometimes there can be the tendency to imagine the qualities that a director is supposed to possess and try to act in the way that perfect director would act, but I always find people respond to me best when I put away those ideas of who I should be and start embracing who I am, complete with all my strengths as well as my vulnerabilities.”

Captain Marvel” is expected to hit theaters March 8, 2019.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to Direct “Captain Marvel” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The Homeland and Billions star, now starring in The Goat, talked sweet packets, war heroes and the myths of private education

3.15pm BST

3.08pm BST

Au revoir, thanks for reading. Thanks for being online, and I hope this answers some of your questions. Toodle pip - and come as see The Goat!

3.07pm BST

SkavArt asks:

Earlier in the year you commented that it was “a nonsense” that only privately educated actors were becoming dominant in acting. Don’t you feel that, due to the lack of funding in all the arts, such as the removal of grants and increase course fees, that it’s becoming less diverse? That there isn’t the healthy mix of students from different backgrounds that there once was?

You're right, we have to protect against lack of diversity. If theatre, film, TV, dance, opera, ballet are going to remain true artforms, they must be reflective of all society. »

10 April 2017 4:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Potential awards contender produced by Scott Rudin will get day-and-date theatrical release and worldwide streaming launch in late 2017.

Netflix has pulled off the kind of prestige buy more commonly associated with its streaming rival Amazon Studios, swooping on worldwide rights to Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).

Frequent Netflix collaborator Adam Sandler stars alongside Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel of Homeland and House Of Cards, Grace Van Patten and Emma Thompson.

The plot centres on adult siblings dealing with the influence of their aging father. A producer roster of Scott Rudin, Baumbach, Lila Yacoub and Eli Bush further bolsters the film’s prestige credentials and a day-and-date theatrical and worldwide streaming launch has been earmarked for late 2017.

Noah Baumbach is an important voice in American filmmaking and his films are always highly anticipated around the world,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, whose team brokered the deal with Iac Films, said.

‘Homeland’ Season 6 Finale Scores Big Ratings Bump Over Premiere

10 April 2017 1:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Homeland” Season 6 finale delivered a big ratings boost to Showtime series on Sunday, improving dramatically over the season premiere back in January.

The finale drew 1.9 million total viewers airing at 9 p.m, according to Nielsen data. The premiere drew 1.1 million, meaning the finale improved on the premiere by approximately 72% in total viewers. In addition, the finale was up 37% in total viewers compared to the episode that aired last week (1.3 million). This season is averaging 5.5 million viewers per week across multiple platforms.

Season 6 picked up several months after Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, with Carrie living in Brooklyn and working at a foundation that provides aid to Muslims living in the U.S. The season tackled the after-effects of the U.S. presidential election, which in the “Homeland” universe ended with a woman elected to the office for the first time in the country’s history.

‘Homeland’ Star on Finale Death: ‘His Time Had Come Up’ (Spoilers)

10 April 2017 12:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the Season 6 finale of “Homeland,” titled “America First.”

The season finale of “Homeland” was a chilling one — and though President-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) did make it to the White House, a beloved character made the ultimate sacrifice to get her there.

Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) had cheated death once before on “Homeland,” but this time, there would be no saving him. Whether he knew it was a suicide mission driving a bulletproof car into a lineup of armed soldiers, Friend says Quinn always put the country first.

Here, Friend tells Variety about Carrie’s “sociopathic” tendencies, Quinn’s abusive past with Dar Adal, and what’s ahead for him.

How did you find out you were going to get killed off — again?

(Showrunner) Alex Gansa told me. He’s quite practiced at this. He’s had to kill off multiple characters over the years. I »

‘Homeland’: An Ode to Rupert Friend’s Quinn After a Divisive Finale

10 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “Homeland” Season 6, including the finale which aired Sunday night.]

Peter Quinn died as he lived: charging headfirst into a mess created by Carrie Mathison, saving her and killing himself in the process. As infuriating as it sounds at the onset, Quinn’s death in the Season 6 finale of “Homeland” fit because it mirrored his mentality so well. Quinn spent much of his time on “Homeland” ignoring his own well-being in order to protect Carrie’s, dating all the way back to when he refused to kill Brody because Quinn knew doing so would hurt her. That’s why driving kamikaze-style into a hail of gunfire, with Carrie crouching behind him, is as apt an ending as it is tragic, maddening, and final.

We wanted more for Quinn, but it always felt like too much to hope for, especially after his near-death in Season 5. While some may believe he should’ve been put out of his misery then, Season 6 clarified »
