2016’s films ranked

4 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

The Best Movies Directed by Women in 2016

Our 22 Favorite Movies Directed by Women in 2016Looking to support great female-directed films? Start here.

Over the years, we’ve heard from our readers that one of the most important things we can do is to help you discover movies that may have slipped by mainstream audiences. And often just as important, our readers ask that we highlight voices that are in the minority in Hollywood. While we’re known for not taking ourselves very seriously, we take this part of our work seriously. Because as many studies have shown, there are some voices that aren’t as well-represented as others. Them’s the facts.

Beyond that, our team has a passion for seeking out and celebrating films directed by women. This is where we often find, as you’re about to see in this list, some of the most unique and interesting stories in the whole of cinema. Another thing we hear often from readers is »

Penultimate Oscar predictions before the nominations are announced

18 January 2017 6:07 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s not far off. In less than a week now, the Academy Award nominations will be announced. Voting has come to an end, so the results basically have been tabulated. It’s just a waiting game at this point. Like an expectant parent, you’ll find me pacing around, a concerned look on my face. What will the Academy do? Will La La Land tied the record for most nominations by a single film? Will any other movie come close to matching that one’s total? Those questions and more are what I’m attempting to pin down. You’ll see what I’m predicting below, but just remember…these aren’t my final picks just yet. I know it’s only been a few days since the last update, but that’s the nature of the beast in this final week. What you’ll see below is a »

Oscar predictions for the new year: 2017

13 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Friday the 13th. Talk about the proper time to update some predictions, right? After the Golden Globes and the Directors Guild announcements, the race for Academy Award nominations is perhaps beginning to come into focus. With ballots being due today for the Oscars and only a few weeks to go before the nomination results are announced, this is when you really need to have a feel for the race. I do think I know more or less what’s going to happen, at least in broad strokes, but between now and then the updates will seek clarity. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again…it’s crunch time. What you’ll see below is more than a slight tinker, mainly taking into account the recent precursors. As such, there’s some small changes almost everywhere. Probably most notable is the upward mobility of Arrival and Lion, »

Deadpool Aims for Oscar in Academy Awards Consideration Video

13 January 2017 11:08 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many casual viewers who tuned into the Golden Globes last weekend were quite surprised to learn that the superhero blockbuster Deadpool was actually up for two awards, Ryan Reynolds for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy and Best Picture Musical or Comedy. While the Merc With the Mouth lost both awards to La La Land, it has also picked up a number of other awards season nominations along the way. With the Oscar nominations coming on January 24, Ryan Reynolds sent out a new video to try and boost the superhero movie's awards season chances, in quite the hilarious and subversive fashion.

Ryan Reynolds debuted the new video on Twitter last night, which pokes fun at the traditional "For your consideration" video that normally lists all of the accolades showered upon a film. Instead, Ryan Reynolds does his best trailer narrator impression, breaking down some of the stats in Deadpool »

Here’s Why ‘The Jungle Book’ Deserves More Oscar Respect

13 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just as George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” James Cameron’s “Avatar,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” and Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” were cinematic groundbreakers for the ages, I believe Oscar voters should take Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” more seriously.

Favreau and screenwriter Justin Marks took Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of Mowgli and his brothers and, with help from James Cameron and Martin Scorsese’s go-to VFX master Rob Legato, created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi).

Maybe Favreau makes it look too easy. This isn’t fantasy-world “Avatar.” This is digital India. He calls up fond memories of Disney’s 1967 animated musical, weaving in a couple of songs and creating a grand set piece led by Christopher Walken as a giant ancient orangutan (gigantopithecus, »

Oscar Sound Contenders: How ‘Rogue One,’ ‘Hacksaw Ridge,’ and ‘Allied’ Created War and Terror

12 January 2017 2:53 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Several of this year’s sound contenders explored battles and other action in a retro fashion very different from the usual superhero mayhem. They include the World War II arenas of “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Allied,” as well as the grittier “Star Wars” battles in “Rogue One”; the terrorist bombing of “Patriots Day”; the miracle on the Hudson in “Sully”; and the unique Indian presence of “The Jungle Book.”

 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

To comply with director Gareth Edwards’ desire for a grittier “Star Wars” movie, sound editors Matthew Wood and Christopher Scarabosio created a new kind of soundscape. “We tried to make it more war-like than a classic ‘Star Wars’ battle,” Scarabosio told IndieWire. “Obviously there are lasers but we were going for impacts that were more realistic, more like you would hear when a bullet hits a tree or some kind of container, and of sand kicking up. »

Why ‘Lion’ Stands to Gain the Most Oscar Momentum From the DGA Nominations

12 January 2017 2:09 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Directors Guild of America nominations confirm what we already know: There are four frontrunners for the Best Picture and Director Oscars. Two are critically hailed, small-scale dramas, Kenneth Lonergan‘s “Manchester By the Sea” and Barry Jenkins‘ “Moonlight;” two are movies of scale and scope, Denis Villeneuve‘s sci-fi drama “Arrival” and Damien Chazelle’s retro musical romance “La La Land.”

Arrival, La La Land and Deadpool among nominations for 2017 DGA Awards

12 January 2017 12:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming off the back of yesterday’s Directors Guild of America TV nominations, the DGA have now released their nominations for achievement in film.

Acknowledging excellence in directing, Denis Villeneuve and Damien Chazelle have both been nominated for Arrival and La La Land respectively.

La La Land is really cleaning up this awards season, having already had a sterling night at this year’s Golden Globes and picking up a whole host of other awards. There seems to be no end in sight to the adoration for the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone-led musical.

Other nominees include Barry Jenkins for Moonlight and Tim Miller for Deadpool (nominated in the first time director category). The full list is below….

Damien Chazelle, La La Land

Denis Villeneuve, Kelly Fremon Craig And Dan Trachtenberg Among Nominees For DGA Awards

12 January 2017 12:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What a year it’s been for writer-director Denis Villeneuve. Following the one-two punch of Prisoners and Sicario, in 2016 the filmmaker crafted a stunning, cerebral sci-fi in the form of Arrival, and will remain in the genre for not only Blade Runner 2049, but also Legendary’s embryonic Dune reboot.

For Villeneuve, it’s Arrival that has fired his name directly into the Oscar race, and while we wait patiently for The Academy to select its nominees (keep your peepers peeled on January 24), the latest round of nominations are in. This time, it’s the Directors Guild of America’s turn to announce their candidates for this year’s ceremony and sure enough, Denis Villeneuve is among the nominees. He’s in the running for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Feature Film, a title Damien Chazelle (La La Land), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Garth Davis (Lion) and Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea »

Damien Chazelle, Barry Jenkins Lead DGA Nominations

12 January 2017 11:49 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on ew.com.

One of the film industry’s oldest unions, the Directors Guild of America, has announced its annual slate of awards nominees, further fueling the landmark Oscar prospects of Damien Chazelle (La La Land), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), and Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea).

The trio of expected Oscar nominees are joined on the nominations list by a pair of relative surprises: Lion director Garth Davis and Arrival filmmaker Denis Villeneuve.

Davis actually scored two nominations from the DGA on Thursday, landing in the best first feature category alongside Kelly Fremon Craig »

La La Land, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea continue their momentum with the DGA nominations

La La Land, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea continue their momentum with the DGA nominationsLa La Land, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea continue their momentum with the DGA nominationsAdriana Floridia1/12/2017 2:28:00 Pm

The Directors Guild Award nominations are a good indicator to who will get that same recognition at the Oscars.

The three favourites this year: La La Land, Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight are continuing their streak by landing these coveted nominations. Arrival and Lion have basically secured themselves in the race now that they've been recognized by the DGA. While there's no guarantee we'll see the exact same five directors get this nomination from the Academy, it's a sure thing for a Best Picture nomination for all of these films at this rate.

It'd be a complete shock if Damien ChazelleKenneth Lonergan, or Barry Jenkins somehow missed the director nomination, as those three appear to be totally locked. »

DGA nominations announced and include frontrunner Damien Chazelle

12 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Today, the Directors Guild of America (or DGA) announced their nominees, further shaping the Oscar race. They come hot on the heels of yesterday featuring the American Society of Cinematographers (or Asc) announcing, as well as the Makeup Artists & Hair Stylists Guild. Earlier today, before DGA, the Costume Designers Guild announced too. They’ll all be seen, but the DGA is the one to focus on. They’re the precursor of this lot that’s truly going to shape the race. Historically, you try not to bet against the majority of DGA nominees scoring with Oscar. It’s just a very predictive and powerful guild… As you’ll see momentarily below, the DGA wound up citing the usual three suspects in Damien Chazelle for La La Land, Barry Jenkins for Arrival, and Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester by the Sea. From there, things got interesting. Many pundits, myself included, had predicted »

Nominees for the 69th annual Directors Guild Of America awards announced

12 January 2017 10:49 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The nominations for the 69th annual Directors Guild Of America awards have been announced. There are five nominees for the outstanding achievement in a feature film for 2016, and they are Damien Chazelle for La La Land, Garth Davis for Lion, Barry Jenkins for Moonlight, Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester By The Sea, and Denis Villenueve for Arrival.

“These phenomenal filmmakers have captured our hearts and minds, breathing life into stories rarely told and revealing worlds rarely seen,” said Directors Guild of America President Paris Barclay following the announcement of this year’s nominees. “What makes this recognition truly special is the knowledge that these five directors have made a lasting impression on their peers – directors and members of the director’s team who intimately understand the blood, sweat and tears necessary to create a feature film.”

'Lion' in surprise DGA 2017 nod

12 January 2017 10:49 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Birth Of A Nation director Nate Parker and Deadpool helmer Tim Miller on first-time directors list.

Garth Davis for Lion and Denis Villeneuve for Arrival are among Thursday’s five Directors Guild Of America (DGA) feature nominees alongside the three awards season heavyweights.

As expected Barry Jenkins for Moonlight, Golden Globe winner Damien Chazelle for La La Land and Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester By The Sea all made the cut. All five earn their first DGA nomination.

However the inclusion of Villeneuve and Davis - the biggest surprise of the day – meant there were the inevitable omissions, notably Denzel Washington for Fences and Mel Gibson for Hacksaw Ridge. Martin Scorsese also missed out for Silence, as did Clint Eastwood for Sully.

The DGA is a very strong predictor of who will win the best directing Oscar. Since 1950, all but seven of the eventual DGA winners have gone on to claim the Academy Award.

'Arrival', 'Lion' among DGA 2017 nominees

Garth Davis for Lion and Denis Villeneuve for Arrival are among Thursday’s five feature nominees alongside the three awards season heavyweights.

As expected Barry Jenkins for Moonlight, Golden Globe winner Damien Chazelle for La La Land and Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester By The Sea all made the cut. All five earn their first DGA nomination.

However the inclusion of Villeneuve (pictured) and Davis – the biggest surprise of the day – meant there was no room for Mel Gibson for Hacksaw Ridge or Martin Scorsese for Silence.

The DGA is a very strong predictor of who will win the best directing Oscar. Since 1950, all but seven of the eventual DGA winners have gone on to claim the Academy Award.

Argo director Ben Affleck was the last DGA winner who missed out on Oscar glory. Indeed Affleck did not earn an best directing Oscar nomination in 2013, although his film won best picture.

The Directors Guild of America has announced the nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film and Outstanding Directorial Achievement of a First-Time Feature Filmmaker for 2016, with a mix of familiar contenders and unexpected presences: Garth Davis (“Lion”) received nods in both categories, with Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”) and Kenneth Lonergan (“Manchester by the Sea”) joining him in the former and Kelly Fremon Craig (“The Edge of Seventeen”) and Dan Trachtenberg (“10 Cloverfield Lane”) in the latter.

“These phenomenal filmmakers have captured our hearts and minds, breathing life into stories rarely told and revealing worlds rarely seen,” said DGA president Paris Barclay in a statement. “What makes this recognition truly special is the knowledge that these five directors have made a lasting impression on their peers — directors and members of the director’s team who intimately understand the blood, sweat and tears necessary to create a feature film.”
