While music producers are responsible for the biggest songs that top the Billboard charts, play ad nauseum on the radio and are most streamed, they often fly under the radar for their behind-the-scenes hitmaking prowess.
But each year, the Recording Academy recognizes — and rewards one of — the mainstream maestros with the Producer of the Year (Non-Classical) trophy at the Grammy Awards. Up for this year’s prize: Benny Blanco, Greg Krustin, Max Martin, Nineteen85 and Ricky Reed.
Below are this year’s nominees and the ubiquitous tracks and albums they contributed to in the past year that scored them their nods. »

Fewer things in this world are more difficult than dreaming up the perfect Instagram caption.
Because how many times can you really use “I’m feeling myself” to describe your many selfies without it getting stale? (Approximately three times, for the record.)
Lucky for us, this year’s Grammy nominees have taken that heavy burden upon themselves and have delivered double-tap-worthy captions that will leave your followers impressed/jealous/wanting to be your Bff.

Netflix is in final negotiations to buy global streaming rights to the black comedy “Small Crimes,” Variety has learned. The deal is in advance of the film’s premiere next month as SXSW.
“Small Crimes” centers on a disgraced former cop, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of “Game of Thrones” fame, who comes home after finishing a six-year prison sentence for attempted murder. He tries to find redemption, but winds up ensnared in a mess he left behind, caught in the middle of a crooked sheriff, a district attorney out for revenge, and a mafia baron.
Netflix was very active at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, buying “Mudbound,” an acclaimed historical drama, for $12.5 million in the biggest deal of the fest. It nabbed several other projects, including “Icarus,” a buzzy documentary about Russian doping, and “Chasing Coral,” a look at global warming.

With Sundance behind us, the next major American festival is waiting in the wings. The SXSW Film Festival lineup has landed, and there’s a lot to dig through.
Unlike Sundance, which attracts a lot of industry attention around a handful of high-profile titles, SXSW is more about discovery. As usual, there are a lot of compelling possibilities in the program, from the newcomers in its competition sections through the more peculiar and surprising offerings in the Visions section. IndieWire got a few tips from SXSW Film director Janet Pierson and extracted these promising possibilities.
Small Stories, Big Steps
The festival’s narrative feature competition is often the place where filmmakers on their first or second feature get a sudden boost. It was there that Lena Dunham’s “Tiny Furniture” and Destin Cretton’s “Short Term 12” both took off. »

Josh Gad’s opening voiceover in “A Dog’s Purpose” asks: “What is the meaning of life?”
You might think: I don’t know, but I don’t think a movie about dog reincarnation is going to tell me.
He goes on: “Are we here for a reason?” Puppies? “Is there a point to any of this?” Probably not, but hopefully puppies.
Turns out, the answer to that last question is a resounding no. It’s not hard to guess why any studio would want to make a movie based on W. Bruce Cameron’s bestselling novel, one that’s ostensibly designed to appeal to the millions of people who turn cute dog videos viral. However, “A Dog’s Purpose” is a lot harder to understand when you consider that it’s a kids’ movie featuring multiple dog characters suffering and dying — and when you consider that it’s directed by Lasse Hallström, »

For a lot of people, calling the last few weeks a downer would be a major understatement. Thankfully, there are plenty of amazing things in this world to keep us hopeful. A new Star Wars movie . . . all of the hilarious signs at the Women's March . . . and oh, yeah, this farmer totally slaying a dance routine to Sia's "Cheap Thrills." Jay Lavery, a 50-year-old farmer from upstate New York, posted a video to his Facebook account of him dancing to the hit song in a barn at the Permaculture Inn farm in Sharon Springs, NY, (surrounded by goats, no less) in late December. It has since been viewed over 8 million times, and is still racking up tens of thousands of likes and shares. On top of the video itself being an instant mood-lifter, Jay's explanation for why he shared it in the first place is just as inspiring: "It's that time »

You know you’re in for a good time when a trio of nuns turn to the genial farmer who greets them one morning with the retort, “Don’t fucking talk to us!” That’s the underlying charm of “The Little Hours,” in which every joke stems from people talking the last way you’d expect of them. Matching a crackling wit with the absurd dissonance of time and place found in the best of Monty Python and Mel Brooks, “Little Hours” is so eager to please that its one-note humor lands with ease.
Writer-director Jeff Baena’s improv-laden twist on “The Decameron,” in which wily 13th-century nuns speak in raunchy contemporary dialogue and engage in sexual deviance, milks its premise for as many jokes as possible and then keeps going, with uneven but mostly hilarious results. Overall, it’s a perfectly satisfying snapshot of subversive comedy that delivers where it counts. »

If one were to judge “Lost in London” solely on the impressive technical feat of producing a live feature film in a single take over the course of two hours, “Lost in London” would be a resounding success. Unfortunately, that’s not how movies work. While Woody Harrelson’s directorial debut experiment went off largely without a hitch, it’s unclear if anyone would care about “Lost in London” if it weren’t filmed live. Despite its unique production, the script (written by Harrelson) suffers from a plot line that drags even as its star hustles to keep up, Hollywood insider jokes that fall flat despite being low-hanging fruit, and a culturally tone-deaf script that is not worth straining to hear over the canned background noise.
Inspired by the true events of one “wild night” Harrelson had in 2012 (celebrities are so crazy!), the movie begins with Harrelson, as himself, exiting »

A New York farmer is spreading smiles around the world thanks to a viral video of his impressive dance moves.
“Dancing is how I stay warm in the barn and I never know when I’m going to break out into a dance,” Michael Lavery captioned a video of his dance to Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” that he uploaded to Facebook.
The video that shows Lavery sweeping and dancing in the barn at his Permaculture Inn farm surrounded by apathetic goats has been viewed over 7 million times.

After highlighting 50 films that we can guarantee are worth seeing this year, it’s time we venture into the unknown. Rather than regurgitating a list of dated-years-in-advance studio releases, we’ve set out to focus on 100 films we’re genuinely looking forward to, regardless of their marketing budgets. While some might not have a set release — let alone any confirmed festival premiere — most have wrapped production and will likely debut at some point in 2017, so make sure to check back for updates over the next twelve months and beyond. Be sure to keep the following one-hundred films on your radar (with release dates, where applicable). If you want to see how we did with our picks last year (potentially to shame us), head on over here.
