BAFTA Awards Rubber Stamps Some Oscar Frontrunners, Upsets Others

Years ago, the British Academy’s BAFTA Awards made for an interesting foil to the stateside Oscars, but the ceremony has evolved into more of a bellwether event.

For a time, the London pageant was held after the Oscars. But at the turn of the millennium, it finally found permanent fixture amid the other precursor pit stops that lead to Hollywood’s big night. Procedurally, the Brits used to delegate nomination duties in most categories to the entire membership, while the individual branches would determine the winners. But in 2012, the organization made vast changes to protocol, shifting to a system that mirrored the American Academy’s (i.e. the inverse, whereby branches decide nominees and the full membership decides the winners).

The result has been an annual show that can provide the most holistic set of clues into the Oscar outcome. In the film editing category, for instance, BAFTA has presaged wins for “Whiplash” and “Hacksaw Ridge” when

The Alienist Interview: Daniel Brühl Talks 19th-Century Psychology And Classic Crime Fiction

The Spanish-born German actor Daniel Brühl is the star of The Alienist, the new period drama based on the homonymous book by Caleb Carr. Brühl, who is best known for Good Bye Lenin!, Inglourious Basterds, Rush, Captain America: Civil War and The Cloverfield Paradox, plays Laszlo Kreizler, a doctor focused on patients with mental health problems; in other words, a psychologist, though back in the late 19th century - as we learn since the beginning of the show - these experts were known as alienists. While in the first three episodes we get to see Brühl’s character working as an alienist - which sometimes means just telling a mother that her daughter isn’t sick but rather just entering adolescence - he quickly takes the role...

Hey, James Franco: See who else has been snubbed at Oscars despite Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice nominations

This year, 15 performers reaped bids at all three key precursor prizes — the SAG, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice awards. Such recognition certainly warrants getting up early on Oscar nominations mornings. But as James Franco (“The Disaster Artist”) and Hong Chau (“Downsizing”) found out, reaping bids for that triple crown still didn’t make them sure things in the Oscars derby. They became the most recent of the 21 performers to stumble at the last hurdle and suffer an Oscar snub since the Critics’ Choice Awards introduced nominations in 2001.

Franco should take comfort from the case of Leonardo DiCaprio, who finally won an Oscar two years ago for “The Revenant” after four losses. There were two instances when he didn’t even reap an Oscar nomination despite having done well in the run-up awards. He was spurned by the actors branch of the academy for his leading performance in “J. Edgar” (2011) and

Dakota Fanning Reveals the Real Reason She Got into Acting: 'It All Started Coincidentally'
She’s been a onscreen powerhouse since she was 6, but Dakota Fanning never envisioned acting would turn into a full-blown career.

“It all started so coincidentally for me,” Fanning, 23, said during Vulture and TNT’s The Alienist premiere Q&A session at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival on Friday. “I did this commercials and I had a good time so I did another one, then I did a TV show which turned into a movie and then I was an actor all of sudden.

‘Solo’: Thandie Newton Talks Reshoots; Says 90% of Her Scenes Were with Lord & Miller

When it comes to Solo: A Star Wars Story (still getting used to that title), rumors abound. The film notoriously went through a pretty massive shakeup when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller exited the project with three weeks of filming left to go, and Ron Howard subsequently came onboard and shot for another four months as the film's new director. There’s been debate about just how much of the Han Solo movie was reshot under Howard, and given the length of time the Oscar-winning Rush director was in production, it would seem to be significant.

Movie Review – Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Thor: Ragnarok, 2017

Directed by Taika Waititi

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins, Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel House, Taika Waititi

Synopsis:

Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

It’s been a bumper 2017 for Marvel Studios, with two huge hits on their hands already with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming (though the latter was mostly Sony), and they’re rounding off the year with another trip to Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok. The third in the Thor franchise (and possibly last) is one of our final stops before we reach Avengers: Infinity War – but is it worth getting off at?

Thor finds himself in a bit of a bind.

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Hey, comicbook fans, it’s another Thor movie, and that can only mean one thing: It’s almost time for another Avengers movie! While you wait, Disney and Marvel Studios hope to loot another half-billion dollars or so from the world’s wallets with this outlandish amuse bouche featuring the God of Thunder and his Abs of Steel, with yet another confusing plot crudely bastardized from Norse mythology in which most of the action takes place on a parallel world you care nothing about.

Like Thor’s two previous solo outings (definite low points in the Marvel oeuvre), this one is pretty much skippable, although it’s not without its pleasures — most notably, the fact that Thor’s not so solo this time around, with cameos/co-starring opportunities for the Hulk, Doctor Strange and a few leftover bits of Tony Stark’s wardrobe (including a retro Duran Duran T-shirt that’s good for a laugh). And while it

Toronto Film Review: Shia Labeouf in ‘Borg/McEnroe’

Toronto Film Review: Shia Labeouf in ‘Borg/McEnroe’
Borg McEnroe” is the story of one of the great tennis rivalries of all time, between Swedish efficiency expert Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) and explosive American underdog John McEnroe (Shia Labeouf), as defending champion Borg competes for his record-breaking fifth Wimbledon title. But it also is the backstory of one of the great tennis friendships, and for someone like me who knew nothing about the match in question (and cared less about who won), that twist — revealed practically in overtime, after the film has effectively ended — made me want to go right back in and watch the movie a second time.

As in competing tennis picture “The Battle of the Sexes” (which seems a far more commercial prospect, in the U.S. at least, given its added political dimension and likable lead actors), director Janus Metz’s stylish, Scandi-made behind-the-scenes sports movie builds to an extended on-court showdown — in this case, a virtuoso,

Lead Actor Emmy Contenders Like Riz Ahmed, Sterling K. Brown Juggle Busy Schedules

Lead Actor Emmy Contenders Like Riz Ahmed, Sterling K. Brown Juggle Busy Schedules
With more content comes more opportunity and for some actors a busier schedule than ever.

Lead actor nominees Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”) and Riz Ahmed (“The Night Of”) also scored guest actor Emmy nominations for roles in HBO’s “Girls” this Emmy season.

Nominated in the limited series category, Ahmed describes himself as a workaholic who prefers to keep busy. That helps explain his parts in multiple projects released in 2016, including “The Oa,” “Jason Bourne” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

“If I’m not shooting something I will be writing a script or recording music,” he says. “I love to be in the thick of the creative process. It’s addictive.”

Sterling K. Brown, last year’s supporting actor in a limited series winner for FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” has also stayed busy. He’s nominated for lead actor in a drama series for NBC’s “This Is Us,” and
