2017 Oscar Nomination Predictions: IndieWire’s Final Selections Before Tomorrow’s Reveal

16 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Here’s the big story for Oscar nominations morning: “La La Land” is not only expected to nab the most nominations, but by my count, it will earn 14. That would put the film on par with “All About Eve” (14 nominations, 6 wins) and “Titanic” (14 nominations, 11 wins).

Why so many? It’s a musical, so add score, original song, and appreciation from the many crafts for the ingenious creativity deployed by Damien Chazelle and team for a singing, dancing, and visually sumptuous love letter to show business. And that’s the other ace in the hole for a movie that could follow the like-minded “Birdman,”  “All About Eve,” and “The Artist” to a Best Picture win. Academy members, especially actors, respond to this aspirational story about “the city of stars.”

Final (pre nomination) Oscar predictions – Can “La La Land” tie the all time record?

21 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Playtime is over. In less than 24 hours, the Academy Award nominations are going to be revealed. It’s exciting, right? It all comes down to this. I finalized my predictions last night and resisted the urge to go over them again this morning, since at this point I probably can only do harm. At a certain juncture, you just begin overthinking things. It’s been out of the voters’ hands for well over a week now, and there’s no more information to be ascertained. It’s simply a matter of waiting for the announcement in less than a day. Tomorrow folks! I know I can’t wait, and I’m sure you feel the same way. Below are my best guesses for how the nominations will go down. For those wondering, I’m actually out on a limb predicting La La Land to tie the all time record with 14 nominations. »

22 January 2017 11:21 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The winners of the 37th London Critics’ Circle film awards have been announced following a glitzy ceremony at London’s Mayfair Hotel last night.

In a surprise move, Director of the Year was won by Hungarian filmmaker Laszlo Nemes for his Oscar-winning drama Son of Saul. Screenwriter went to Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester by the Sea, which also won Actor of the Year for Casey Affleck. Moonlight was presented with both supporting acting categories, for Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali, who tied with Love & Friendship‘s Tom Bennett.

China Box Office: ‘Arrival’ Lands on Top of Deathly Quiet Weekend

22 January 2017 4:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Putting on a desperately unconvincing performance, newly released sci-fi drama “Arrival” landed on top of the Chinese box office over the Jan. 20-22 weekend. It topped the chart on only one of those three days, Friday, and limped to a total of just $7.49 million.

Returning for its second week, “Passengers” was on top of the box office on both Saturday and Sunday. Its total for the weekend was $6.87 million, according to data from Ent Group. The film stands on a cumulative $34.7 million after 10 days.

Overall box office was down by nearly two thirds compared with a typical weekend. Data from ticketing firm Weiying Technology suggests a weekend cumulative of just $32.3 million (RMB223 million.)

The films currently on release will likely see their runs come to an abrupt halt at the end of the current week, when the Chinese New Year (aka (Lunar New Year) holidays begin. No less than seven »

London Critics’ Awards: ‘La La Land’ Comes Out On Top, Huppert Doubles Up

22 January 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The London Film Critics’ Circle tends to spread the wealth between multiple films in any given year, but their affections were even more split than usual Sunday. Through the evening, you might have felt the wind blowing in the direction of “Moonlight,” “Manchester by the Sea” or “Love & Friendship,” all of which took a brace of awards at tonight’s ceremony at the May Fair Hotel in London — or even last year’s Oscar winner “Son of Saul,” a 2016 release in the U.K. that pulled off a surprise director of the year win for first-timer László Nemes.

But in an eleventh-hour coup that echoed its triumph in the NYFCC voting last month, it was hot Oscar favorite “La La Land” that danced off with the film of the year prize, despite winning no other trophies. In what I’m told was one of the tightest vote counts in the Circle’s history, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Yellow Birds’

21 January 2017 6:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s unusual, at the Sundance Film Festival, to see a drama about a subject like the Iraq War. The economics of scale required to stage an authentic combat scene don’t tend to mesh with indie-film budgets — and besides, there are enough towering war films in our time that the bar for them has been set extraordinarily high. So say this much for “The Yellow Birds”: When it plunks the audience down into a crumbling urban war zone, where every dirt road and alleyway could be a path to oblivion, the movie, if nothing else, creates a physically convincing atmosphere of instability and fearful tension. The movie opens with U.S. soldiers walking across a dark field, past palm trees (one of which is on fire), in a grimly patterned death march that evokes — ironically — the final moments of “Full Metal Jacket.” And, indeed, Stanley Kubrick’s great »

Hacksaw Ridge Review

20 January 2017 3:12 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

If you missed Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ or Apocalypto, you may not be aware of the director’s near masochistic penchant for realistic violence. Be warned, Hacksaw Ridge is not for the faint of heart. Each act of bodily harm, whether the result of a gun shot or an everyday accident, is captured with Gibson’s unflinching lens. The camera never shies away from framing the grizzliest details of each and every wound – blood gushes, bones snap and bodies burn and Gibson makes sure we witness each traumatic moment. His target subject here is the horrific experience of war and the transformative power of religious conviction – most significantly, the 6th Commandment, “thou shalt not kill.” However, for a film that seeks to champion the power of god’s peace in the face of man’s violence, Hacksaw Ridge spends far too much time relishing in the horrors of the battlefield. »

How ‘Hell or High Water’ Writer Taylor Sheridan Turned Failure Into Art: Awards Spotlight

19 January 2017 8:11 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With Chris Pine and Ben Foster as bank-robbing brothers and Jeff Bridges as the Texas Ranger on their tail, David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water” debuted at Cannes to critics’ raves. The indie box-office hit of 2016 is the result of that increasingly rare invention: an original screenplay. It sprang from the mind of Taylor Sheridan, a Texas-born actor who, in the tradition of “The Last Picture Show” and “Hud” author Larry McMurtry (another Texan whose stories fueled some great movies), set his story in the Lone Star State.

Sheridan wrote “Hell or High Water” after his first script, “Sicario,” but “Hell or High Water” sold first. The writer sees both films as part of a trilogy of “the modern-day American frontier,” he told us, “about how much has changed in 100 years, and how much things haven’t. What are the consequences of decisions and actions that are a century old and today? »

Oscars 2017: What Are Mel Gibson’s Chances of a Best Director Nomination For ‘Hacksaw Ridge’?

19 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Mel Gibson on the set of ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ (Courtesy: Lionsgate)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Mel Gibson has a chance at being nominated in the best director category at the 2017 Oscars for Hacksaw Ridge — but there is definitely some competition. While the 61-year-old multihyphenate has already received nominations at the Critics’ Choice Awards and the Golden Globes, snagging one from the Academy is not certain. How often have directors been gotten those two precursor nominations only to fall short of the all-important Oscar nomination?

Over the course of his lengthy career, Gibson has primarily been an actor. That being said, the New York native has stepped behind the camera and directed five feature films to date: 1993’s The Man Without a Face, 1995’s Braveheart, 2004’s The Passion of the Christ, 2006’s Apocalypto, and 2016’s Hacksaw Ridge — with the announcement of another, Berserker, on the horizon. The most successful of the bunch, »

Final Oscar Predictions: 5 Lingering Questions With Nominations on the Way

18 January 2017 5:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ballots were due on Friday and the nail-biting will finally cease at 5am on Tuesday, Jan. 24. It’s been another jam-packed phase one for Oscar season, though one that didn’t have quite as many twists and turns as you’d expect. After all, a certain musical started the season as the presumed frontrunner, and it hasn’t budged since.

Of course, as soon as you think you’ve got it all figured out, the Academy keeps you on your toes. So how will the nominations for the 89th annual Oscars play out next week? There will be surprises, surely. There always are. Figuring out what they might be is the fun. Check out my final picks if you’re curious to know one guy’s opinion, but as we head into this final lap, a few lingering questions remain.

How many best picture nominees will there be?
