Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar
Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club.

The Conversation: 2015 Oscar Predix: Hair Cuts & 12 Year Cuts… Boyhood Will Grab Best Editing

The Nominations: Best Editing

American SniperJoel Cox and Gary D. Roach

BoyhoodSandra Adair

“The Grand Budapest Hotel” Barney Pilling

The Imitation GameWilliam Goldenberg

WhiplashTom Cross

Shoulda Been a Contender: Douglas Crise and Stephen Mirrione for “Birdman

Strangely left out of this category (yet, again, American Sniper somehow bested that…) Birdman’s editing team of Douglas Crise and Stephen Mirrione state that their “editorial ego really has to be held at bay pulled off” to achieve Iñárritu’s conceptual stunt. Yet, another way to interrupt the non nomination is that the ”one-take look” is indeed the most seamless edit of the 2014 year.

Should Win: Barney Pilling for “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Winner of Ace Eddie Awards’ in the Comedy or Musical category, Pilling is partially responsible for the magnificent pacing and filtering the performances of Anderson’s exquisite film. It would be great to see him take home the statue.

2015 BAFTA Award Winners Topped by 'Boyhood' Taking Both Picture and Director

The 2015 BAFTA Awards have been revealed and if you're of the group that believes they hold any kind of influence over the Oscars or serve as any kind of predictor, well, you may be moving Boyhood back to the top line of your Best Picture and Director predictions as Richard Linklater's twelve-year project took home three wins including Best Picture, Director and Supporting Actress, though it was The Grand Budapest Hotel, which lead the nomination field with 11 noms, that lead all winners taking home five awards, all below the line outside of the win for Best Original Screenplay. Personally I'm not ready to move Birdman below Boyhood in either Picture or Director as it only took home one award, Best Cinematography for Emmanuel Lubezki, though one interesting category to keep an eye on is Best Actor at the Oscars as the precursors suggest it will be Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything

2015 BAFTA Awards winners as they are announced
The 2015 Ee BAFTA Awards were handed out in London Sunday night and while the broadcast aired hours later in the United States, it didn't stop us from chronicling the twists and turns of a show often seen as a bellwether for the Academy Awards. It took home only three BAFTAs, but "Boyhood" was the biggest winner of the night as it won Best Film and Richard Linklater earned Director honors. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" took home five statues including Original Screenplay for Wes Anderson, Production Design, Costumes, Original Music and Make Up & Hair. "Whiplash" earned three BAFTAs including J.K. Simmons for Supporting Actor, Editing and a somewhat surprising win in Sound. Expected Oscar winners Julianne Moore took Leading Actress and Patricia Arquette took Supporting Actress. Eddie Redmayne earned a key win over rival Michael Keaton by claiming the Lead Actor BAFTA for "The Theory of Everything." The latter also won

I Love Attending the Critics' Choice Movie Awards!

David Oyelowo was relaxed at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards held last night at the Hollywood Palladium. The whole world was surprised with his Oscar snub but the actor, who gave one of the best performances of 2014 as Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in "Selma," seemed to not mind. He remembered me from our red carpet interview when "Selma" opened the Palm Springs International Film Festival. As soon as Oyelowo saw me, he asked, "Palm Springs right?," so...we took a selfie!

That was always the mood at any of the Critics' Choice Movie Awards I've attended. Being a proud voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, we hand out the Critics' Choice Movie Awards annually and it's the awards show I always look forward to attending each year.

Common, who, together with John Legend won Best Original Song at the Critics' Choice with the fantastic "Glory" from "Selma" was also in high spirits.

Birdman and Boyhood top Critics' Choice Movie Awards 2015

Birdman and Boyhood top Critics' Choice Movie Awards 2015
Birdman was lauded with seven gongs at this year's Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

Lead actor Michael Keaton scored two of the awards for Actor and Actor in a Comedy, while the movie also won in the Acting Ensemble, Score, Original Screenplay, Editing and Cinematography categories.

However, the Alejandro González Iñárritu-directed black comedy was unable to beat Boyhood to the Picture award.

The coming-of-age drama had the second highest number of awards in total, which included Director for Richard Linklater, Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette and Young Actor/Actress for Ellar Coltrane.

The Grand Budapest Hotel followed suit with three awards for Comedy, Art Direction and Costume Design, while Guardians of the Galaxy took two with Action Movie and Hair & Make-up.

2015 Critics Choice Awards Winners Topped by 'Boyhood' and 'Birdman'

Birdman led the field heading into tonight's 2015 Critics Choice Awards with 13 total nominations followed by The Grand Budapest Hotel with 11 nominations, and Boyhood with eight. Of course, following this morning's 2015 Oscar nominations all eyes were on the Critics Choice Awards to see how this awards season will continue to flow. Some were already declaring the Oscars irrelevant, bypassed by the likes of the more diverse list of nominees at both the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards as the Oscars failed to nominate Selma and saw a list of acting nominees dominated by all-white actors. Personally, I think people are looking to blame the Academy for overall industry ills, but I guess there is some level of importance to be placed on being the organization to move the dial. Is that by nominations alonec How much do winners matterc That's probably a question best left for another time, as for tonight's awards.

Live with Kelly and Michael's Michael Strahan hosted the show at the Hollywood Palladium, and kept the mood "light and easy," as promised (starting with a Magic Mike-inspired strip-tease to open the show). Birdman walked away with the most statues, and Kevin Costner, Ron Howard and Jessica Chastain received special awards during the ceremony. Birdman entered the race with the most nominations, 13, and took six of the categories. Not far behind was Boyhood, which took four of its eight nominated categories, and The Grand Budapest Hotel with 11 nominations and three wins.

'Grand Budapest,' 'Interstellar' dominate Oscar's craft categories
Well, there we went. The Oscar nominations are in and, in a nice change of pace, the crafts categories were revealed on the air. Let's see what the last several months of build-up has left for us. A few trends come to mind… The (Near) Shut-Outs Oh how the mighty have fallen. A measly sound editing nomination for "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" shows that the novelty eventually does wear off. Goose eggs for "Noah" (despite a strong push), "Nightcrawler" (given its precursor run), "Gone Girl" (you would have thought it had great chances in film editing and original score), "Transformers: Age of Extinction" (given the sound branch's love of this series) and "Big Eyes" (given the pedigree) have also got to be considered disappointing. And even though it garnered two nominations, I can't imagine that there aren't some long faces regarding "Guardians of the Galaxy," with
