Over 100 Glamorous Photos That Show Off the Best of the BAFTA Awards

  • Popsugar
The Oscars may reign supreme when it comes to Hollywood, but across the Atlantic Ocean, the BAFTAs are award season's hottest ticket. It's the only award show that combines Hollywood royalty with actual royalty, and the British Academy's star-studded night often predicts future Oscar winners. In 2001, the ceremony moved from May to February, and now many BAFTA winners end up picking up Academy Awards a few weeks later. Since 1949, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts has celebrated the best British and international contributions to film, and over the years there have been some very memorable moments. Alan Rickman joked, "This will be a reminder to me that subtlety isn't everything," as he accepted his award for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves in 1995. In 2002, an unexpected downpour caused detergents in the red carpet to foam up, turning the walk to the venue into a bubbly assault course. A year earlier,

Chris Cornell’s Passion Dominates Star-Studded Tribute Show
Chris Cornell’s friends and family offered up many heartfelt tributes at Los Angeles’ Forum Wednesday night, but the one that captured his essence best improbably came from Jack Black. “Sometimes Chris Cornell would sing a note that didn’t exist,” he told the sold-out crowd. “Sometimes [he] would sing a note that was between two real notes, and it would open a portal into another dimension. I don’t know if that’s true. Like, maybe it was probably a real note – it was probably a C-flat – but it was

  • Variety
On-location feature filming in Greater Los Angeles expanded impressively in 2018, gaining 12.2% to 4,377 shooting days, according to FilmL.A.

Production activity for feature films rose 15.5% to 1,078 shooting days during the fourth quarter, with 146 days coming from projects receiving California tax credits — including Netflix’s “Bird Box,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio; and McG’s sci-fi invasion tale “Rim of the World.”

Total on-location production in Los Angeles gained 1.3% for 2018 to 38,795 shooting days, despite a 4.9% decline in television shooting to 14,466 days. The key TV drama category rose 10.6% to 4,848 days in 2018 while comedies slid 16% to 1,810 days and reality declined 9.2% to 3,980 days. Commercial shooting for 2018 increased 8.7% to 6,033 days.

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ Pumps Up Local Production

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ Pumps Up Local Production
Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood doesn’t come out until July 26 but the flick is already a hit in Los Angeles.

Production of the Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino and Leonardo DiCaprio starring Manson era movie in the City of Angels helped give on-location filming in Greater L.A. in 2018 a slight edge over the year before. With production on features up 15.5% in the fourth quarter of 2018 over Q4 2017 and rising overall 12.2% annually, total production is up 1.3% from 2017 and 5% from the end of last year, according to Film L.A.

The 38,795 shoot days clocked in last year are the second-best production results the non-profit permitting organization has tallied since former Gov. Jerry Brown signed an expansion of the Golden State’s film and TV tax credits program in the fall of 2014. Only the 39,627 shoot days that were racked up productionwise in 2016 topped last year.

2019 Critics’ Choice Awards: Will they preview the Oscars again?

The Critics’ Choice Awards are renowned as one of the best barometers for predicting the Oscars. Over their 23-year history these prizes bestowed by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. (Bfca) have previewed 14 Best Picture Oscar winners as well as 18 Best Director, 16 Best Actor, 13 Best Actress, 13 Supporting Actor and 16 Supporting Actress champs.

Last year, this group of journos foresaw the outcome in all of those Academy Awards races. The Critic’s Choice winners were revealed on Jan. 11, which was one day before Oscar nominations voting closes. “The Shape of Water” took the top prize here and Guillermo del Toro had a chance to practice the acceptance speech he would give at the Oscars. Likewise for the four acting winners: Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney.

Battle of the Sams: Will Elliott or Rockwell make the Best Supporting Actor Oscar cut?

Battle of the Sams: Will Elliott or Rockwell make the Best Supporting Actor Oscar cut?
Sam is in? But which one? Now that the four televised precursors have spoken, four spots in the Best Supporting Actor Oscar race appear to be secure: Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”), Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) all scored Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA nominations. The last spot has been split between two Sams: Elliott (“A Star Is Born”), who made Critics’ Choice and SAG, and Rockwell (“Vice”), who was shortlisted at the Globes and BAFTA. Assuming the other four are in, which Sam will take the final spot in the Oscar lineup?

Elliott has had a rocky Oscar journey for what many felt was a safe nomination after “A Star Is Born” opened to great reviews and became a box office hit. The Globe snub was surprising, but in hindsight, given how “A Star Is Born

‘Ben Is Back’ A Family Affair For Peter Hedges – Crew Call Podcast

‘Ben Is Back’ A Family Affair For Peter Hedges – Crew Call Podcast
For Peter Hedges, casting his Oscar-nominated son Lucas Hedges in his latest movie Ben Is Back wasn’t about opportunity, rather catharsis.

The 56-year old filmmaker’s reasons for tackling a teenage drug addiction drama extend back to his mother, Carol Hedges, a former alcoholic who quit drinking when he was 15 years old. And after that point, life blossomed.

In fact, it was Julia Roberts, who plays a mother battling with her teenage son’s opiod addiction over the course of the Christmas holiday, who suggested that Lucas take on the role.

And getting the chance to work with Lucas, moved Peter: “It was impactful to me in ways I couldn’t have imagined. I’m the son of Carol Hedges who was an alcoholic, who found recovery and saved a lot of lives. He’s her grandson. I wouldn’t have become writer, wouldn’t have had that path

Is Amy Adams the Next Leonardo DiCaprio? After Her Golden Globes Snubs, Fans Think So

Amy Adams deserved better at the 2019 Golden Globes. The actress, sadly, walked away from the evening with zero awards even though she was nominated in the best supporting actress in a film category for Vice, as well as best actress in a miniseries or television film for Sharp Objects. Regina King and Patricia Arquette would go on to win those categories for their roles in If Beale Street Could Talk and Escape at Dannemora, respectively.

Adams's gutting portrayal of Camille Preaker in Sharp Objects is considered a career-best, making the loss particularly disappointing for fans. Making matters slightly more heartbreaking for fans, her costar in the miniseries, Patricia Clarkson, took home the award for best supporting actress thanks to her chilling role as Adams's onscreen mom, Adora Crellin.

2019 Golden Globes: Will these awards predict the Oscars?
The Golden Globes, now in its 76th year, offers one of the best previews of what will win at the Academy Awards. With separate awards for drama and comedy/musical films, the Globes doubles its chances of getting Best Picture and the lead acting races right at the Oscars. Two years ago their drama pick, “Moonlight,” edged out the comedy/musical choice “La La Land” at the Academy Awards.

Last year, Globe voters went all in on “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” which won a leading four awards: Best Drama, Best Drama Actress (Frances McDormand), and Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell) and Best Screenplay for director Martin McDonagh. Both performers repeated at the Oscars.

But their film fell short in the Best Picture race at the Oscars to “The Shape of Water,” which had taken home just two Globes for director Guillermo Del Toro and composer Alexandre Desplat. They both picked up Oscar bookends.

Scoot McNairy Describes Quentin Tarantino’s “Fascinating” Process Shooting ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

Quentin Tarantino's ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, is a bit of an enigma. It feels like we know so much about the 1960s period piece, like the fact that half of actual Hollywood wanted in on it, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are playing an old Western actor and his stunt double, Margot Robbie is Sharon Tate, and the whole thing somehow revolves around the Manson Family murders. But we don't actually know too much about the film's plot, or how that insanely large cast all ties together. In an interview for the upcoming …

Leonardo DiCaprio Testifies To Federal Grand Jury In Malaysian Fund Probe: Report

Leonardo DiCaprio Testifies To Federal Grand Jury In Malaysian Fund Probe: Report
Leonardo DiCaprio has reportedly secretly testified before a Washington, DC grand jury as part of a federal investigation into a Malaysian government investment fund.

The case, which involves some of the highest members of the Malaysian government and some major U.S. investors, centers on financier Low Taek Jho. Low allegedly stole and laundered billions of dollars from the investment fund, then financed a lobbying campaign to end the federal investigation.

The Washington Post reports DiCaprio is not a target of the probe. Reports indicate that DiCaprio is considered a witness who can provide insights into Low, which may help the ongoing investigation into his activities.

Court papers have alleged that the relationship between Low and DiCaprio involved allowing the actor to gamble on his tab at the Venetian casino in Las Vegas; giving him artwork; and helping him get funding for the hit movie The Wolf of Wall Street.
