New Mantra: "Miranda July Heist Movie"

Chris here. If that headline didn't already give you a moment of chrystalline mental clarity, perhaps the fact that it's not just fantasy will. That's right, the multi-hyphenate artist Miranda July will be returning to cinemas for her yet untitled third feature, this time with a genre bent. Those unfamiliar with the indie darling would do well to research her performance art and writing, but her filmography is as good a start as any of her other works. Her first two idiosyncratic films were 2005's whimsically sad Me and You and Everyone We Know ("... forever.") and 2011's The Future, which was narrated by a stray cat. Both films are touching and deeply original, so don't expect standard heist fare.

But maybe this could be her most mainstream film yet given the enticing cast she's already assembled: Evan Rachel Wood, Debra Winger, Gina Rodriguez, and Richard Jenkins. Wood will play Old

Meryl Streep in ‘The Post’: A look at her 21st Oscar nomination and the competition

Meryl Streep in ‘The Post’: A look at her 21st Oscar nomination and the competition
This article marks Part 21, the final chapter of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In 1977, while Meryl Streep was making her film debut in “Julia,” Steven Spielberg was still basking in the smashing success of “Jaws” (1975). Spielberg’s follow-up that year, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” may not have shattered box office records like “Jaws” but it did earn the filmmaker his first Oscar nomination in Best Director.

Over the following 40 years, Streep and Spielberg would lock down 21 and 17 Oscar nominations respectively, with each scoring three victories. While their paths would occasionally cross on Oscar night – Streep’s victory for “Sophie’s Choice” (1982) fell on the same evening Spielberg’s “E.

When co-stars collide at Oscars: Does one win or do they split the vote? Sam Rockwell, pay attention!

When co-stars collide at Oscars: Does one win or do they split the vote? Sam Rockwell, pay attention!
It’s the dream of most actors and actresses to receive an Oscar nomination and, if they’re lucky, to win. But what happens when you’re up against a co-star from the same movie? Does one triumph or do they split the vote? Click through our photo gallery above of all the times this has happened throughout Academy Awards history.

Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson both scored Best Supporting Actor nominations for their work in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” It has been 26 years since Harvey Keitel and Ben Kingsley were both nominated for “Bugsy” (1991). Unfortunately for the duo they split their support and Jack Palance won for “City Slickers,” ironically a former victim of vote-splitting against his “Shane” co-star Brandon De Wilde (they lost to Frank Sinatra, “From Here to Eternity”).

When Streep first heard that William Styron’s novel about a Holocaust survivor who befriends two eccentric young men in New York City was being turned into a film, she knew she had to play the part. She reportedly begged writer/director Alan J. Pakula for the part on bended knee. Only after Ursula Andress, Magdalena Vasaryova and Liv Ullman proved unavailable, was Streep granted the role of Sophie Zawistowski.

'The Looming Tower': Drama About 9/11 Lead-Up Part Nostalgia, Part Cautionary Tale

There's a haunting moment early on in Hulu's The Looming Tower – just another night in New York City, back in 1998. An FBI Special Agent watches a TV interview with a terrorist practically nobody in America has heard of before, a guy named Osama bin Laden. The interview includes dire threats of attacks on America. The agent, John O'Neill, reacts to this news in the time-honored way: He goes out and gets drunk, at the old-school celebrity hot spot Elaine's. (He's a regular.) On the way out, he yells into

Sam Rockwell (‘Three Billboards’) would be sixth Best Supporting Actor Oscar champ to beat a co-star

Sam Rockwell (‘Three Billboards’) would be sixth Best Supporting Actor Oscar champ to beat a co-star
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” ended a 26-year drought in Best Supporting Actor, producing two nominees, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, from the same film for the first time since “Bugsy” (1991) stars Harvey Keitel and Ben Kingsley lost to Jack Palance (“City Slickers”). By all appearances, it’s smooth sailing for Rockwell for the win, which would be the sixth time a Best Supporting Actor winner defeated a co-star in 18 dual duels.

“Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” (1939) stars Harry Carey and Claude Rains were the first co-stars to be nominated against each other in Best Supporting Actor, but they lost to Thomas Mitchell for “Stagecoach.” It would be another 32 years — with seven pairs of double nominees in between — before a Best Supporting Actor champ, Ben Johnson, beat a co-star, Jeff Bridges, for 1971’s “The Last Picture Show.”

Three years later, Robert De Niro prevailed over fellow “The Godfather Part II

Why Lady Bird should win the 2018 best picture Oscar

Ahead of the 2018 Oscars, Hadley Freeman champions Greta Gerwig’s coming-of-age drama about the inner lives of women

It is still slightly mind-blowing that Lady Bird is nominated at all at this year’s Academy Awards, because there is nothing about this movie that screams “Oscar fodder!” But the fact that it is nominated is a testament to just how bloody good this movie is, and why it really should win best picture.

Its most obviously un-Oscar quality is that it was written and directed by a woman, Greta Gerwig, who is still only 34. Gerwig is, shamefully, only the fifth woman to be nominated for best director in the Oscars’ 90-year history. The relevance of her gender is all too apparent in the second factor that makes it seemingly so anti-Oscars: it is about the inner lives of girls and women. The last time a movie about female lives was

Meryl Streep in ‘Doubt’: A look back at her 15th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 15 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

On the heels of the spectacular box office success of “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006), Meryl Streep was more a household name than ever. Even teens and twentysomethings who weren’t terribly familiar with Streep’s body of work could now instantly identify the actress who made Miranda Priestly a big screen icon. She quickly hopped aboard three projects for 2007, all of which screamed ‘Oscar contender’ on paper and unfortunately, all of which underperformed upon release.

First, there was “Evening,” a supremely sleepy drama which, despite the presence of heavyweights including Streep, Glenn Close, Claire Danes and Vanessa Redgrave, failed to leave

This article marks Part 5 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In her first eight appearances on the big screen, Meryl Streep portrayed a diverse array of characters, all fictional. In 1983, she at last took on a real-life role, that of the plutonium technician-turned-nuclear safety whistleblower Karen Silkwood in “Silkwood” and was rewarded with an Academy Awards nomination for her efforts.

The project marked Streep’s first of four collaborations with filmmaker Mike Nichols and first of three with screenwriter Nora Ephron.

No one had more riding on the success of “Silkwood” than the picture’s director. After a string of acclaimed box office hits in the late 1960s and early 1970s, including “Who’s Afraid

This article marks Part 4 of the 21-part Gold Derby series Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

After “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” in 1981, Meryl Streep lined up two exciting projects for the following year, both lead turns and both given prime late-year release dates for Academy Awards consideration.

First on tap was Streep’s much-anticipated reunion with “Kramer vs. Kramer” (1979) director Robert Benton. “Still of the Night” would mark her first big screen thriller to date, pairing Streep with two-time Oscar nominee Roy Scheider. Exciting, right? Well, the Benton picture came and went that November in the blink of an eye, failing to even crack the box office top 10. Not only were reviews for the film itself lukewarm but critics argued both
