From Kristen Stewart to Steven Spielberg, Awards Possibilities Abound in Cannes Lineup

10 May 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Inasmuch as anything can be called “official” in the unscientific business of Oscar-watching, the early-fall festival trifecta of Venice, Telluride and Toronto marks the official start of awards season: Venice, in particular, is on a roll, having premiered the last two best picture winners (“Spotlight” and “Birdman,” not to mention 2013’s close runner-up “Gravity”) in calmly European style before the noise built up on the other side of the pond.

Happily situated in the less frenzied days of spring, Cannes sits at a respectable distance from the mania of the U.S. awards derby. It is, after all, a festival principally devoted to the kind of high-art world cinema that rarely rules the Oscars: For every Palme d’Or winner like “The Pianist” or “Amour” that breaks through to Academy voters, there are several others (“Winter Sleep,” “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”) that aren’t remotely on their wavelength. »

Writers Guild Pushes for Diversity Tax Credit in New York

9 May 2016 3:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Writers Guild of America East has asked New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to support providing diversity production credits for TV shows.

The legislation would expand the state’s incentive program to include credits for shows that include writers and directors who are women or people of color.

The WGA East delivered nearly 500 letters to the governor Monday — with high profile signers such as Tina Fey and “Spotlight” writer-director Tom McCarthy — in support of proposed legislation that would designate $5 million of the $420 million Empire State Film Production Tax Credit for productions that hire female or minority writers or directors. It would be the first time a film state tax credit has included a diversity clause.

Signers included “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” scribe Michael Arndt; David Simon (“The Wire”); Robert Carlock (“The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”); “Goodfellas” author-screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi; Sarah Treem (“The Affair”), Michael H. Weber (“The Fault in Our Stars »

'Fathers and Daughters' Trailer: Amanda Seyfried Learns To Love Again With The Help of Aaron Paul

6 May 2016 8:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the new drama "Fathers and Daughters," Russell Crowe plays Jake Davis a literary giant who published a widely-acclaimed novel about his relationship with his own daughter Katie (Kylie Rodgers). Though he loves her very much, Jake is suffering a mental breakdown and thus isn't equipped to take care of his daughter, so he leaves her in the charge of others. Now, 27 years later, an older Katie (Amanda Seyfried) struggles to connect with others, but with the help of a kind stranger (Aaron Paul), maybe she can learn to love yet again. Watch the trailer for the new film above.

The Current Debate: Beyoncé’s "Lemonade"

4 May 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It would be insufficient, writes Carrie Battan, to call Beyoncé’s Lemonade an album: “The project is also a piece of spoken word, a narrative film, a map of cultural reference points, and a window into the soul of an icon whose inner life has always seemed just out of reach.” Battan’s description hints at what has so excited the Internet in the week and a half since Lemonade’s release: it’s not only a new Beyoncé album—it’s also her most personal work yet, and one that, as Ash Sarkar notes at the London Review of Books, is uniquely political:“How has this happened? How has Beyoncé engendered such a deep sense of solidarity among women and the marginalised? Most reviewers have pointed out that Lemonade is Beyoncé’s most personal and political work to date, but few have interrogated how the album moves between the two. »

Inside Beyoncé's Lemonade Squad: A Who's Who of the Powerful Visual Album's Cameos

The Internet may be focused on hunting down "Becky with the good hair," but we're stuck on the women standing with and by Beyoncé in her powerful, one-of-a-kind visual album Lemonade. While Blue Ivy and Jay Z's cameos in the HBO special were expected (the family has shared the screen before), a number of female Hollywood power players also got into costume to support Beyoncé's eye-opening endeavor.

Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Reverberates Around the Internet, Pop Culture

25 April 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Beyonce’s foray into arthouse filmmaking with “Lemonade” still has the Internet abuzz, even two days after its premiere on HBO.

The 60-minute “visual album” has set off a digital scavenger hunt among fans, both hardcore and casual.

The “Lemonade” storyline about a woman’s ride on an emotional roller coaster after being betrayed by the love of her life has off a tidal wave of speculation about how much of the material was drawn from Beyonce’s own experience in her marriage to music mogul Jay Z. Rachel Roy, a woman alleged to have been linked romantically to Jay Z, was swarmed on social media by angry Beyonce fans amid speculation that she’s the “Becky with the good hair” referred to in one of the songs addressing the pain of infidelity.

Roy fanned the flames herself by posting on Instagram: “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, »

‘Swiss Army Man’ Trailer: Here’s That Daniel Radcliffe Farting Corpse Movie You’ve Heard So Much About

Every year at Sundance, there are a small handful of films that get hyped up sight unseen: your Boyhoods, your The Raid 2s. A few others come out of seemingly nowhere to become the toast of the town, a la Beasts of the Southern Wild or Birth of a Nation. Dozens more still fly under the radar the whole […]

SXSW Film Review: ‘My Father Die’

15 March 2016 11:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The swamp-thing progeny of “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “The Night of the Hunter” (with a little “Cape Fear” thrown in), “My Father Die” offers blood-and-thunder Southern-gothic excess both tempered and heightened by vivid directorial texturing. Writer-helmer Sean Brosnan’s debut feature after several shorts isn’t exactly a horror film, but this thematically simple, aesthetically complex revenge tale will find strongest initial support among fans at genre fests, with word of mouth there possibly spurring niche theatrical pickups as well as more assured home-format sales.

A black-and-white opening sequence finds the dirt-poor Rawlings brothers running wild in Louisiana bayou country, where the teenage Chester (Chester Rushing) promises to initiate the pubescent Asher in the mysteries of sex via willing young neighbor Nana (Trina Lafargue). Unfortunately, their dad, Ivan (former British pro boxer Gary Stretch), considers her his own property — never mind that he’s still married to the »

Sundance at the Oscars

28 February 2016 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary McCurry on the Sundance movies that have enjoyed success at the Oscars…

Since 1984, the Sundance Film Festival as we know it today has been shining a light on independent movies. Held annually in Park City, Utah, Sundance has become the largest independent film festival in the United States. Many notable directors have came through the ranks, including Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs), Paul Thomas Anderson (Cigarettes & Coffee/Hard Eight), Kevin Smith (Clerks) and Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild).

With that history lesson over, I’m looking to recap upon the movies that have gone through Sundance on the road to the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Some housekeeping before we begin. This isn’t a complete list of every movie to have won the sword wielding knight, more a few notes on the film festivals success throughout the years. Talking of years, you’ll find them in order »

Oscars: Ranking the Best Picture Nominees

25 February 2016 4:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: Guy, we started this deep-dive conversation about the best picture race less than an hour after Alejandro G. Inarritu clinched the Directors Guild of America’s top prize for “The Revenant,” which was pretty much the last confirmation we needed — after the Producers Guild picked “The Big Short” and the Screen Actors Guild opted for “Spotlight” — that this really is the wildest, craziest, most confoundingly unpredictable best-picture Oscar race in years. Exciting, isn’t it? I’d be more excited if this recent turn of events didn’t seem to favor “The Revenant,” which now has extraordinary momentum on its side. There we were, hoping the film’s Golden Globe triumphs would simply be an isolated HFPA fluke — but then it came roaring back with a vengeance, not unlike that easily distracted CGI bear at its center, ready to sink its teeth back into the race and not let go this time. »

Altitude takes UK on Ira Sachs' 'Little Men'

13 February 2016 4:01 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Love Is Strange director reunites with UK distributor.

Altitude Film Distribution has acquired the UK distribution rights to Sundance drama Little Men.

The deal was negotiated between Altitude Film Entertainment’s Ellie Gibbons and Mongrel International’s Charlotte Mickie.

The acquisition is the second between Sachs and Altitude, having previously released the highly acclaimed Love is Strange.

Little Men follows Jake (Theo Taplitz), a quiet, sensitive middle schooler with dreams of being an artist. He meets the affably brash Tony (Michael Barbieri) at his grandfather’s funeral, and the unlikely pair soon hit it off.

The budding friendship is put at risk, however, when a rent dispute between Jake’s parents, Brian and Kathy (Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle), and Tony’s mother, Leonor (Paulina Garcia), threatens to become contentious.

Sachs co-wrote the screenplay with Mauricio Zacharis (Love is Strange).

Producers are Lucas Joaquin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Sachs, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos ([link »

12 Actors Nominated for an Oscar After 60

11 February 2016 2:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Oscar records are broken every year, especially among actors with many benchmarks relating to an actor’s age. In 2013, Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”) broke a new record becoming the oldest nominee in the lead actress category at 85. Meanwhile, Quvenzhané Wallis (“Beasts of the Southern Wild”) appeared alongside Riva as the youngest ever nominated at 9 years old. Here are some more record breakers featuring actors who received acting nominations after the age of 60! Gloria Stuart, “Titanic” (1997) (87 years, 221 days)Stuart holds the title as the oldest actor ever nominated for an Oscar. She received her single nomination in the supporting category at 87 for the James Cameron disaster epic, “Titanic.” Playing Rose DeWitt Bukater, Stuart narrates the film in the modern day detailing of her character’s experience and romance on the ship, as portrayed by Kate Winslet in flashbacks. Stuart ultimately lost the Oscar to Kim Basinger for “L.A. Confidential.” However, “Titanic »

Oscars 2016: What Is Going on With the Best Director Race?

5 February 2016 3:15 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Predicting the Oscar winners this year is a little like predicting the winners of the early presidential caucuses and primaries -- that's how wide open the field is in some categories, particularly Best Director.

In the Oscar race, we had two important guild votes this week, from the actors and the editors, and the results made the Academy's contest a bit more clear. Will the DGA's vote this weekend help make sense of things? Maybe, depending on who wins.

The Screen Actors Guild awards last Saturday did help confirm some of the acting races. SAG winner Leonardo DiCaprio still has a lock on a Best Actor Oscar for "The Revenant," and Brie Larson is still far and away the Best Actress frontrunner for "Room." Alicia Vikander's SAG win for Supporting Actress for "The Danish Girl" puts her ahead of the pack; at this point, her only real competition is »

The Youngest Oscar Winners and Nominees in Academy Awards History

5 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In 2013, a then-9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis received the Best Actress Oscar nomination for "Beasts of the Southern Wild," making her the youngest nominee in the category's history. This year, the Best Actress nominees are a little bit older. But that doesn't mean we can't look back in wonder at the remarkable achievements of Hollywood's most powerful pint-sized talents.

From Shirley Temple, the youngest Oscar honoree ever at six years old, to 10-year-old winner Tatum O'Neal, the youngest winner ever, sometimes Hollywood's next generation of stars do get recognized for their early achievements.

In honor of this year's Oscars, let's take a look back at some of the youngest Oscar winners and nominees in Academy Awards history.

Diversity Scandal Overlooks Historic Year for Women at Oscars

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to this year’s Academy Awards, no word is more buzzworthy than “diversity”. For the second year in a row the Oscars have nominated only white actors in their four main acting categories, sparking backlash and, as a result, inciting the Academy to announce new changes to tackle its “diversity problem”.

Amidst another year of #OscarsSoWhite trending on Twitter, however, the fact that 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for women has been largely overlooked. Three of this year’s best picture nominees (BrooklynRoomMad Max: Fury Road) are female-centric and feature strong female protagonists in the center of the action. In fact, even outside of those films and their performances, a number of women are nominated for best picture as producers, as well. Kristie Macosko Krieger is nominated for Bridge of Spies, Blye Pagon Faust is nominated for Spotlight, Dede Gardner »

Halle Berry Breaks Silence About Oscar Diversity Controversy: 'It's Heartbreaking'

Halle Berry, the only African-American actress to win an Academy Award for Best Actress, is finally opening up about the Oscar diversity controversy. Addressing what she called "the elephant in the room" at the 2016 Makers Conference on Tuesday, Berry told reporters that she is "heartbroken" with the continued lack of representation African-Americans receive in Hollywood.
