Penultimate Oscar predictions before the nominations are announced

6 hours ago | 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 »

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘La La Land’ Ride Oscar Wave on Soft Holiday Weekend

15 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As far as the box office is concerned, the Martin Luther King holiday weekend might better be dubbed Memorial Day, as six new wide releases are weak or dying. Despite a wide array of product which should have boosted totals, this weekend looks to be down 19 per cent from last year.

On the other hand, Oscar contenders “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox) and “La La Land”(Lionsgate) continued to surf cresting audience enthusiasm to place first and second for the three day weekend.

School vacation Monday results may boost Universal’s “Sing” and possibly Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” to higher positions. Animated musical “Sing” is holding well, with a 33 per cent drop. “Rogue One,” though now the top-grossing 2016 domestic release, is falling far faster than juggernaut “Force Awakens” a year ago.

14 January 2017 12:20 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Bad boys, bad boys: TBS has picked up 10 episodes of Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks’ new animated comedy “The Cops,” which had previously been set up at FX.

Louis C.K. and Brooks will voice the show’s lead characters, “Lou” and “Al,” two Los Angeles patrolmen “trying their best to protect and serve, sometimes failing at both. Ride with them as they patrol one of the biggest cities in the world, then go home with them and be glad you’re not married to either.”

The show will premiere in 2018; the two will also executive produce along with Greg Daniels, Dino Stamatopoulos, Dave Becky and Howard Klein.

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.”

Trump’s Treasury Pick Steven Mnuchin to Sell His Stake in Warner Bros. Films

12 January 2017 12:28 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Steven Mnuchin, the president-elect's nominee to head the U.S. Treasury Department, will divest his interest in about 85 Warner Bros. films including Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Sully. The stakes in those movies could be up for sale soon.

Mnuchin's plan to exit RatPac-Dune Entertainment, the financing entity he launched in 2013 with Australian billionaire James Packer and filmmaker Brett Ratner, was revealed in a letter sent to an ethics lawyer at the Treasury Department and obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. In the letter, Mnuchin also writes that he “will not participate personally and »

'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.

Disney's Dumbo Targets Tom Hanks as the Villain

12 January 2017 8:45 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, we reported that Will Smith is being eyed for the lead role in Disney's live-action Dumbo adaptation, which Tim Burton is set to direct. It seems that is not the only role the studio is trying to cast, with a new report revealing Tom Hanks has been offered the villain character, although it is not immediately clear if he will take the part. The report claims that he may also take a role in the World War II drama The Grey Hound, but it doesn't seem that the actor has made up his mind quite yet.

Variety reports that Will Smith will play the father of the children who become friends with the elephant after seeing him at the circus. This report also reveals that, if Will Smith does take this project, it will likely have a "significant impact" on his long-awaited Sony Pictures sequel Bad Boys For Life. »

Best Editing Oscar: How Do Voters Separate Great Editing and Directing? (Hint: It’s Not Easy.)

11 January 2017 4:40 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Thelma Schoonmaker won the first of her three Academy Awards for “Raging Bull,” she humbly told journalists that she believed she was being honored for work done by the director, Martin Scorsese.

“I won the Oscar for ‘Raging Bull’ for those fight sequences,” said Schoonmaker in a 1991 interview with Wide Angle/Closeup. “If you look at those fight sequences, those were so incredibly storyboarded and shot in an incredible way – that is the conception a good director has to bring.”

All below-the-line talent interprets a director’s vision through their crafts, but the editor’s work is most closely associated with the director’s. From 1981 to 2016, every Best Picture winner, except “Birdman,” was nominated for Editing. “Birdman” features long, unedited takes and elaborate camera movements; that might be the only way »

East vs. West at the Oscars: Will a Coastal Contender Prevail Again?

11 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The East Coast and West Coast have been playing tug of war over the top Oscar the past dozen years, and this year the regional divide is especially pronounced.

La La Land” and “Manchester by the Sea,” two of the awards season’s earliest and enduring favorites, represent each other’s coastal opposite: Kenneth Lonergan’s prototypically New England “Manchester by the Sea” is as wintry and repressed as Damien Chazelle’s retro Los Angeles musical is sun-drenched and yearning. It’s impossible to imagine either movie set elsewhere: the chill is palpable from the moment Casey Affleck’s handyman starts shoveling snow at the outset of “Manchester by the Sea.” “La La Land,” by contrast, opens with a gridlock-defying dance routine on a freeway, establishing Emma Stone’s Mia as a wannabe actress driving a Prius, the eco-friendly car popular with the city’s creative class.

The Producers Guild of America has nominated “Deadpool,” “Arrival,” “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Hell or High Water” as the best-produced films of 2016, an honor that typically means the films are in line to receive Best Picture nominations at this year’s Academy Awards.

One day after setting a record for most wins at the Golden Globes, La La Land continued its fine awards season by claiming 11 Bafta nominations, the joint-most since The Artist scored 12 nominations five years ago.

As predicted, Damien Chazelle’s throwback musical-romance scored nominations in most leading categories including best film, director, actor, actress, original screenplay and cinematography.

Lionsgate will now make the feel-good musical its widest ever UK release this weekend (603 screens), pushing it out on more screens than its flagship franchise The Hunger Games.

Casting: Marvel's Ghost Rider Will Ride Onto Lrm's Exclusive Dark/Web Series!

9 January 2017 8:42 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Things just got more real with Dark/Web. The Lrm Exclusive digital series just locked down Ghost Rider himself, Gabriel Luna, to partake in “Zero." Luna definitely made his presence felt on the most reason season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and was also the star of El Rey's Matador. His Dark/Web episode, "Zero," is one of the anthology portions of the show.

For those confused by what we mean by “anthology portion,” it’s probably best to recap the unique format that Dark/Web utilizes.

Dark/Web's structure combines the classic, standalone stories traditionally found in an anthology series with an overarching, season-long mystery. Each episode consists of two parts:  

A portion of the serialized tale that continues week after week.  A stand-alone horror/sci-fi short, presented in the form of stories that Molly left behind; each written and directed by a different filmmaker.

As mentioned above, Luna will star in “Zero, »

What do the Golden Globe results mean for the Oscars?

9 January 2017 1:02 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

La La Land has the momentum, but don’t rule out Manchester By The Sea or Moonlight.

Sunday’s Golden Globes triumph for La La Land proved the perfect awards season staging post for a film that has been gathering pace en route to the Oscars.

While Moonlight and Manchester By The Sea made the early running in the season, they only earned one win each at the 74th anual Golden Globes. Lionsgate’s musical, on the other hand, has been winning hearts and minds and building a head of steam at the box office too.

Now, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the 90-or-so voting members who bestow the Golden Globes, is a very different beast from the Academy and its 6,000-plus voters. The latter group will not pay too much attention to Sunday’s results, although the emphatic victory for La La Land does reflect a broader love for the film within the industry.
