Warner Bros. Launches Wonder Woman’s “For Your Consideration” Page As Oscar Momentum Builds

18 October 2017 7:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Diana Prince, Oscar winner?

Five months on from the release and subsequent success of Wonder Woman ($821 million) and Warner Bros. is beginning to double down on the film’s fledgling Oscar campaign by launching its official “For Your Consideration” page.

Submitted alongside Blade Runner 2049, Dunkirk and The Lego Batman Movie, the Powers That Be have placed Wonder Woman in no less than 15 categories, including the prestigious Best Director (Patty Jenkins) and Best Picture. Diana Prince herself, Gal Gadot, is also in contention for Best Actress, having brought the Amazonian to life with real gusto earlier this year.

Connie Nielsen (Hippolyta), Robin Wright (Antiope) and Elena Anaya (Doctor Poison) are among those submitted for Best Supporting Actress, while Warner has also earmarked Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), David Thewlis (Ares), Danny Huston (General Ludendorff), and Ewen Bremner (Charlie) for Best Supporting Actor.

Quote of the Day: Patty Jenkins on Her Duty to Fight for Equal Pay on “Wonder Woman 2”

11 October 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Jenkins on “Conan

Wonder Woman” helmer and record-smasher extraordinaire Patty Jenkins made headlines last month when, after a long negotiation process, she officially signed on to helm the superheroine sequel and became history’s highest-paid female filmmaker. Now, in the cover story for Variety’s “Power of Women La” issue, Jenkins has revealed that she felt a sense of feminist responsibility as she negotiated her “Wonder Woman 2” deal.

“You’re of course aware of the money,” Jenkins said of her salary talks. “But I’ve never been more aware of a duty than I was in this deal. I was extremely aware that I had to make sure I was being paid what the male equivalent would be.”

Not only is pay parity something Diana Prince would expect and demand, it’s a perennial issue for women in Hollywood. Megastars like Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain, and Jennifer Lawrence have spoken publicly about the pay gap, while TV actresses like Emmy Rossum and the women of “Big Bang Theory” and “Criminal Minds” have had to fight to be paid the same as their male co-stars.

Jenkins was aware of those women’s stories — and the countless other stories like them — and knew she was in an advantageous position after the success of “Wonder Woman.” “Women who have not been in a system that allows them to build up the same level of pay as men are not able to be paid the same as men forever if that’s the way it continues,” she observed. “You have to ask for it to happen, and you have to ask when you’re the appropriate person. I knew when Charlize [Theron] had to do it on ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ and I felt that it was my job to do it here.” She directed Theron in her Oscar-winning role as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in “Monster.”

According to Variety, “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot supported Jenkins all the way. “She is definitely paving the way for so many other female directors,” the actress commented. “I think it was very important that she fought to get the best deal. You got to walk the walk and talk the talk.”

The Killing,” “Arrested Development,” and “Five” are among Jenkins’ other credits. Next, she’s directing the pilot episode of TNT’s “One Day She’ll Darken.” The series follows a young woman who, while trying to learn about her past, crosses paths with Dr. George Hodel, a suspect of the Black Dahlia murder. Jenkins is also exec producing. She was recently announced as a keynote speaker at the third annual Women in Entertainment Summit and as one of Women and Hollywood’s 10th Anniversary Trailblazer Award winners.

Wonder Woman 2” is scheduled to hit theaters December 13, 2019.

Emmys 2017: ‘Atlanta,’ ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Big Little Lies,’ ‘Black Mirror’ Top Critics Picks

13 September 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmys are upon us, and it wouldn’t be an awards show if our critics didn’t have strong and possibly arbitrary opinions about who should take home a gold statue or two this year. Here’s where they duke it out. Are you — and Emmy voters — on Team Ryan or Team Saraiya? (Play along: The full list of nominees is here.)

Comedy Series

Saraiya: I will brook absolutely no contenders besides FX’s “Atlanta,” which was my No.1 show of 2016. And it’s not like I don’t like other shows. But none of them even come close — except, possibly, for HBO’s non-nominated “Insecure.”

Ryan: No disagreement here. The second season of “Master of None” certainly had some strong moments, and I’m a fan of some of the other shows on the list. But this award has to go to “Atlanta.” It just has to.

Drama Series

Saraiya: This is such an interesting »

After Soderbergh: See the Top 10 Box Office Track Records of Classic Indie Filmmakers

19 August 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In a career that began with “sex lies and videotape” in 1989, “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s 26th theatrical release. It will extend his record as the top-grossing American director to come out of the independent scene in its formative years — a period we’ll define as 1975 (Joan Micklin Silver’s “Hester Street”) through 1992 (Quentin Tarantino’s debut, “Reservoir Dogs”).

To be clear, Soderbergh’s an outlier; his billion-dollar box office dwarfs every other indie filmmaker. However, looking at the performance of his contemporaries who got their start in that indie film movement, you may be surprised at who’s on the list. (Note: “Outside wide release” means less than 1,000 screens. Also, the list doesn’t include directors like Sam Raimi and Abel Ferrara, who have independent roots but were not discovered via the film festival/arthouse pathway, or Alan Rudolph, another significant ’80s figure; he started in horror films in the early ’70s. »

Inside Kathryn Bigelow’s Journey to Tell ‘Detroit’s’ Harrowing Story

1 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Oscar winner’s ripped-from-the-headlines drama, which opens nationwide on Aug. 4, burrows into one of the most painful chapters in American history. It centers on the Detroit riots of 1967, a response to decades of racial oppression and economic marginalization that exploded during a scorching hot summer and enflamed the Motor City. How could Bigelow — a white woman raised just ouside San Franicsco by middle-class parents and educated at Columbia University — understand and illuminate that kind of raw experience? Should she even try?

“I thought, ‘Am I the perfect person to tell this story? No,’” says Bigelow. “However, I’m able to tell this story, and it’s been 50 years since it’s been told.”

'Westworld', 'Saturday Night Live' lead Emmys nominations

13 July 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Shows each earned 22 nods on Thursday morning.

Westworld and Saturday Night Live led the pack on 22 nods each in all categories as the 2017 Primetime Emmys nominations were unveiled on Thursday morning.

Stranger Things and Feud: Bette And Joan followed on 18 apiece, then comedy staple Veep on 17, and The Crown on 13.

By company, HBO led the way on 110 nominations, with Netflix next on 91, and NBC on 60.

Thursday’s nominations underscored the rise of the streaming services, as Netflix and Hulu made emphatic statements, particularly in the drama categories with The Crown, Stranger Things and The Handmaid’s Tale. Netflix spent a lot on reaching Emmys voters, staging a month-long For Your Consideration residency in Beverly Hills earlier in the summer when it rolled out its heavy-hitters for daily publicity appearances.

The Top 25 Box Office Blockbusters of the 21st Century

13 July 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No subjective “best” list here, this one is based on stats. As the 21st century turns 16, we’ve got the 25 biggest-grossing domestic blockbusters to date.

Check the stunning list below, which is unlike any previous period in movie business history. (We’re using adjusted totals to account for changing ticket prices. Box Office Mojo’s top 200 all-time adjusted list is here.) Here’s what we learned by doing the numbers:

The 21st Century Has Delivered Many of the Biggest Hits in History

25 of the 100 all-time biggest-grossing films have come from the first 16 years of this century. 1984 to 2000, the era that perfected the modern blockbuster and mass release of movies, brought 17. So the 21st century has been an era of major hits.
