Craft Guild Noms, Oscar Tallies Reveal Interesting Contrasts

3 February 2016 1:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Revenant” with 12 nominations, and “Mad Max: Fury Road” with 10, rang up the largest number of Oscar notices this year, largely due to success across the Academy’s various artisan categories. It was a trend signaled in early January, as both films led the way on the industry awards circuit.

And while films like “Bridge of Spies,” “The Martian” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” also performed well among artisan groups, the Academy’s corresponding branches represent smaller voting bodies, which makes for some interesting comparisons.

For instance, the art directors and costume designers guilds honor achievement in three categories (period, fantasy and contemporary). Films such as “Crimson Peak,” “Joy,” “Star Wars” and “Trumbo” fared well among voters in both orgs, yet couldn’t secure Oscar nominations in those fields.

To compare, “The Revenant” was passed over by the Costume Designers Guild, but Jacqueline West’s fur-trapper chic still managed an Oscar bid. »

Thn’s top five Leonardo DiCaprio performances

28 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has had one of the most interesting and diverse careers in Hollywood. After all, not many actors can claim to have worked with James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan. On top of that, he has starred in a groundbreaking Shakespeare adaptation, an acclaimed summer blockbuster and the 12 year record holder as the highest grossing film of all time.

Now with the release of The Revenant, it’s the perfect time to celebrate DiCaprio’s many standout performances throughout his career.

Check out my top 5 performances from DiCaprio below and pray that he finally receives his Academy Award next month:

5. Inception (2010)

Before 2010 DiCaprio had carefully avoided both action blockbusters (no Titanic doesn’t count) and science fiction films. However, after a little known director called Christopher Nolan broke box office records with the universally acclaimed film The Dark Knight, he apparently changed his mind.

Sundance: The Math Behind Fox Searchlight’s Record-Shattering ‘Birth of a Nation’ Deal

27 January 2016 4:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nate Parker may be racking up the airline miles to promote “The Birth of a Nation.” The director and star behind the slave revolt drama has told Fox Searchlight that after spending seven years of his life bringing the story of Nat Turner to the screen, he’s going to be the face and voice of his passion project.

According to insiders, Parker’s deep connection to the material and his willingness to go door-to-door to promote the picture were major reasons that “The Birth of a Nation” landed the biggest deal in the history of the Sundance Film Festival: a $17.5 million payday from Fox Searchlight for global rights.

Parker’s story, and his multi-hypenate status, is expected to be a key component in the marketing outreach of the film. With the possible exception of Orson Welles in “Citizen Kane” or Warren Beatty in “Reds,” few have managed to successfully write, »

Sundance: A Welcome Rebuke to Hollywood’s Diversity Woes

27 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: At the studio level, American cinema seems to be in the full throes of a diversity crisis, as moviegoers and the media alike are finally taking Hollywood to task for its lopsidedly white-centric worldview. It’s a real problem, and one whose solution I’m happy to see suggested at the Sundance Film Festival, which has long extended a megaphone to so-called “outsider” voices. Judging by the U.S. competition alone, the broad-ranging field of representation includes Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” (which re-creates Nat Turner’s rebellion) and Richard Tanne’s “Southside With You” (which re-creates Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date) alongside Andrew Ahn’s gay-Asian identity exploration “Spa Night” and Elizabeth Wood’s wildly over-the-top “White Girl” (Wood is one of five distaff directors in competition, two of whom aren’t white).

The good news is that these movies somehow managed »

James Bond 007: revisiting Spectre

24 January 2016 6:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

We complete our series looking back at the James Bond movies, with a detailed look at Spectre, starring Daniel Craig...

This article contains big spoilers for Spectre and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Daniel Craig’s fourth or Roger Moore’s eighth? The former of course but you get the point. The almost-realistic stylings of early Craig have given way to the full blown pantomime excess of mid-Moore (or late Connery, in fairness). Desert lairs, endless car chases, free-wheelin’ helicopters and indestructible airplanes are all very much back in vogue. The result is a largely enjoyable, extremely silly film which attempts to tie previous Craig outings together at the expense of consistency and logic. There isn’t a plot: more a succession of scenes stitched together. And it still can’t manage a decent finale! Fun but ultimately frivolous. Now who does that remind me of?

13 Reasons to Be Outraged at The Hateful Eight's Oscar Snub

22 January 2016 7:00 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Now that Oscar nominations have been revealed, it's time to pick them apart. One of the biggest snubs of the year, and one I'm personally shocked about, is the nearly complete absence of The Hateful Eight in the main categories. It might not be Quentin Tarantino's greatest film, but it's every bit as good as Django Unchained, which was nominated for five Academy Awards and won two. The story follows a bounty hunter (Kurt Russell) and his prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who find themselves trapped at Minnie's Haberdashery, a small cabin filled with mysterious characters. The movie is so grand that it even has an intermission! Read on to find out why The Hateful Eight's snub is so tragic. »

Walton Goggins on Tarantino, Marilyn Manson and 'Sons of Anarchy'

21 January 2016 11:24 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Well, hello there baby, you look so beautiful," Walton Goggins purrs, leaning forward and suddenly going into full-on loverman mode. "Look at you, all done up in that white dress and those white shoes. This is a proper get-up, my dear. You look hot!" The 44-year-old actor is sitting in a downtown Manhattan restaurant, his face hovering inches away from a plate of Burrata; he was sold on the appetizer after being told it's "like Mozzarella's sexier cousin," so he's now whispering sweet nothings at the cheese with an intensity and seductiveness that's almost frightening. »

Quentin Tarantino Teases a 1930s Gangster Movie Set in Australia

19 January 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

As it slowly limps out of theaters, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight feels destined to go down as the director’s most divisive film. Critics and audiences were split. It made /Film’s top 10 of 2015 but won’t earn half of what Django Unchained grossed at the box office. The incredible roadshow presentation was marred by theaters unprepared […]

Watch: 1-Hour Roundtable With Samuel L. Jackson, Will Smith, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Caine & More

18 January 2016 4:14 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With just over a month until the Oscar campaigning finally concludes, there’s still a few more items of note. Today brings THR’s annual actors roundtable, in which Will Smith (Concussion), Mark Ruffalo (Spotlight), Benicio Del Toro (Sicario), Joel Edgerton (Black Mass, The Gift), Samuel L. Jackson (The Hateful Eight), and Michael Caine (Youth) all gather. During the one-hour conversation, they discuss getting into the business, their biggest fears and disappointments, who has taught them the most, their advice for young actors, and much more.

In one of the most interesting sections, after Caine talks turning down Alfred Hitchcock‘s Frenzy, Smith talks about turning down Django Unchained, saying, “[Quentin Tarantino and I] talked, we met, we sat for hours and hours about it. I wanted to make that movie so badly, but I felt the only way was, it had to be a love story, not a vengeance story. I don’t »

Movie Review: The Hateful Eight

17 January 2016 10:59 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Quentin Tarantino can do whatever he wants. At this point in his career, twenty-two years removed from the pop-culture milestone Pulp Fiction (1994), the lowbrow aficionado has dabbled in everything from Kung Fu (Kill Bill, Vol. 1 & 2 [2003/04]) and Blaxploitation (Jackie Brown [1997]) to world war (Inglorious Basterds [2009]) and revisionist westerns (Django Unchained [2012]). Each crucially dependent on their assigned genres, but unmistakably stamped by an artist who loves to screw with the status quo. No other filmmaker can channel the sophistication of Jean-Luc Godard and the violence of John Woo through the veil of a 1970s exploitation flick – much less attempt to in a coherent state of mind. But this is where the Oscar nominated Tarantino resides full time: right on the edge of cinematic sanity.

Proudly marketed as the director’s eighth film, The Hateful Eight is another high-tension affair; punctuated by a script you could bounce a bullet off of. Racial slurs, »

‘That’s a Nice Touch’: Why ‘The Hateful Eight’ is Quentin Tarantino’s Magnum Opus

16 January 2016 12:32 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

With the recent conclusion of the 73rd Golden Globe Awards and the announcing of the 2016 Oscar nominations, awards season in Hollywood is officially upon us. Now’s the time for filmgoers to binge on all, or as many of the Oscar frontrunners as possible before February 28th. Some of us get as much, if not more enjoyment out of emotionally attaching ourselves to potential nominees and winners than the actual film-going experience. Our investment in these films is such a not-so-quiet reverence of the work itself, playing favorites is one of our most cherished annual pastimes. Who we align ourselves with isn’t a complicated process. While we can side with a film for a whole host of reasons, odds are if a particular auteur’s newest offering is in the running, our selection is made for us.

If you frequently pay attention to Rotten Tomatoes scores, maybe it surprises »

Director’s green light to pirates follows local censors’ move to ‘castrate’ version of 2012’s Django Unchained released in cinemas

Quentin Tarantino has controversially revealed he has no problem with filmgoers watching pirated versions of his movies – providing they live in China.

Speaking to ABC in Australia, where he is promoting his new film The Hateful Eight, the Oscar-winning film-maker said problems with local censorship of Django Unchained in 2013 had convinced him bootleg versions could be a better option in the world’s most populous nation.

The Real Scandal Is How Amazing Kerry Washington Has Always Looked

12 January 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kerry Washington has been on our radar since the early 2000s, when she graced the screen as single mom Chenille in Save the Last Dance (such a classic). Since then, she's starred in critically acclaimed films like Ray, For Colored Girls, and Django Unchained and has us completely captivated with her role as Olivia Pope on the ABC hit show Scandal, for which she's received Golden Globe and Emmy nominations. Off screen, Kerry's life has been pretty golden as well; she joined the crop of new celebrity moms in April 2014 when she and husband Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed daughter Isabelle, and she's been hitting the red carpet looking better than ever since then. Like the rest of us, Kerry fell victim to some of the more unfortunate fashion trends in the 2000s - like denim maxi skirts, woven belts, and skinny scarves - but she's clearly come out on the other side. »
