Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis bows before queen Helen Mirren for 2nd Best Actor win [Watch]

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis bows before queen Helen Mirren for 2nd Best Actor win [Watch]
Exactly 10 years ago at the 80th Academy Awards, Daniel Day-Lewis won his second Oscar as Best Actor. As he arrived on stage, he bowed before “queen” Helen Mirren as she used the statuette to knight him for his victory in “There Will Be Blood” (watch the video above).

After his surprise Oscar win for “My Left Foot” at the 1990 ceremony almost two decades earlier, Day-Lewis had become an official A-List star. He followed with memorable performances throughout the early 1990s, including “The Last of the Mohicans” and Martin Scorsese’s “The Age of Innocence.” He then received an additional Oscar nomination for “In the Name of the Father,” playing the wrongfully convicted Gerry Conlin but lost the award to Tom Hanks for “Philadelphia.”

‘Phantom Thread’ Review: Paul Thomas Anderson Fashions a Continually Surprising Relationship Drama

On a basic level, Paul Thomas Anderson makes films about magnetic presences — figures who emanate such greatness that it’s nearly as impossible for bystanders to be around them as it is to not be around them. Phantom Thread, Anderson’s ninth film, is of a piece with much of his career in that way, telling of a prodigal 1950s dressmaker, Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), who inspires equally rapturous reactions to his handiwork and his mercurial disposition.

Just as The Master unmasked a serious-man character study as a psychological survey of bullshit artists and Inherent Vice played dress-up as a noir story to spin a tale of immovable sadness, so too does Phantom Thread present itself as a rigorous biopic-like narrative while its interests are far less fussy or predicable. This is less an examination of a singular person than a look at the torturous and sublime experience of his

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Editing
The Editing nominations are often a strong indicator of Best Picture contenders. This year’s Oscar frontrunners include “Dunkirk” and “Darkest Hour,” two sides of the World War II battle between England and Germany, as well as Guillermo del Toro’s sumptuous romantic fantasy “The Shape of Water.” It remains to be seen how the late-year openings, from “The Post” and “Phantom Thread” to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” fare with critics and audiences.

Frontrunners:

Valerio Bonelli (“Darkest Hour”)

Walter Fasano (“Call Me By Your Name”)

Jon Gregory (“Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri”)

Lee Smith (“Dunkirk”)

Sidney Wolinsky (“The Shape of Water”)

‘Phantom Thread’: Everything You Need to Know About Daniel Day-Lewis’ Final Movie

‘Phantom Thread’: Everything You Need to Know About Daniel Day-Lewis’ Final Movie
The Oscar race isn’t over until the last movie screens, and this year one of the final contenders to be unveiled will be “Phantom Thread.” The drama marks the hugely anticipated reunion between Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis, who last worked together a decade ago on “There Will Be Blood.” The Upton Sinclair-inspired drama earned eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, and gave Day-Lewis his second trophy for Best Actor (he’d make history and win a third for “Lincoln” five years later), so anyone would be foolish to underestimate just how big “Phantom Thread” will be this awards season.

Focus Features has been keeping a majority of the details surrounding the movie under lock and key, although the official trailer was finally released on October 23, teasing a gorgeously shot drama about the romantic obsessions of a self-destructive artist. “Phantom Thread” seems to operating

The Mythic Power of ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

“I can’t figure it out. Do want to be like me or do you want to be me?”

‘There Will Be Blood’: What You Learn About Paul Thomas Anderson By Counting All 678 Shots — Watch
If you’re one of those people who don’t believe the editor holds just as much power over a film as the director, then you really need to watch more Paul Thomas Anderson movies, especially “There Will Be Blood.” The latest video essay from Nerdwriter1 takes a fascinating look at Anderson’s 2007 masterpiece by studying what you learn about the movie just by counting all of the shots.

Read MoreAttention, Filmmakers: Here’s How You Can Direct Shots Like Paul Thomas Anderson — Watch

There are a total of 678 shots in “There Will Be Blood,” which runs 158 minutes. This means that Anderson and editor Dylan Tichenor’s average shot length is approximately 13.3 seconds, well over the 3-4 second average among Hollywood movies today. Utilizing longer shots in no way makes a film better or worse, but Anderson uses it to his advantage. He not only uses longer shots, but he

Official Information on Paul Thomas Anderson's New Untitled Film

  • Cinelinx
The movie news that the film community has been waiting for: Focus Features sent out an official press release giving us an update on the new unititled Paul Thomas Anderson film, which reunites him with Daniel Day-Lewis after the two collaborated on the 2007 masterpiece There Will Be Blood.

Cameras are rolling on Paul Thomas Anderson's eighth picture in the United Kingdom under the working title Phantom Thread, although the press release addresses it as "Untitled." I think Phantom Thread is a title fitting of Paul Thomas Anderson's oeuvre of masterpieces, but we'll see what they land on in the near future. The film is being distributed by Focus Features and Universal Pictures with an anticipated release date in late 2017.

The meat of the press release as follows:

Directors Share The Best Piece of Advice They Received at The Sundance Labs

Following in the footsteps of alums like Quentin Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson and Ryan Coogler, eight up-and-coming directors just completed the Sundance Directors Lab. For four weeks these directing fellows worked with actors and production crews to shoot and edit key scenes from their screenplays. Throughout the process they were mentored, working one-on-one with creatives advisors as they made key discoveries about their scripts, collaborated with actors and found a visual storytelling language for their films.

Triple 9 – The Review

Violent, profane, ambitious, pretentious, overcooked and entertaining as hell, director John Hillcoat’s Triple 9 presents a wide canvas of memorable characters for a satisfying urban crime drama. Michael Atwood (Chiwetel Ejiofor) leads a crew of dirty Atlanta cops and ex-cops (Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, and Clifton Collins Jr.) working for the “Kosher Nostra”, a mob of Russian Jews led by dragon lady Irina Vlaslov (Kate Winslet), who operate out of a meatpacking plant. The crooked cops are introduced pulling off an ultra-efficient bank heist for Irina, but she withholds payment until they execute another job – one she’s convinced will help spring her husband from the Russian Gulag (held there just because “Putin so fears him”) . Michael has a son with Irina’s sexy younger sister Elena (Gal Gadot), who he won’t see again unless he cooperates, so he convinces his team to break into a Homeland Security safe house,

Film Review: ‘Triple 9’

Film Review: ‘Triple 9’
If he hadn’t already made a Prohibition-era Western called “Lawless,” director John Hillcoat might as well have saved that title for “Triple 9,” a modern-day heist thriller of unusually grim, coiled intensity: About as far removed as possible from the suave leisure-suit larcenists of an “Ocean’s Eleven” caper, the desperate crooks trying to pull off one last job here are a bunch of corrupt cops and ex-soldiers in Atlanta, navigating a shadowy urban labyrinth with no chance of escape or redemption in sight. Well suited to Hillcoat’s gifts for low-boil suspense and brutal eruptions of violence in close, male-dominated quarters, the film has grit and atmosphere to burn but also a certain narrative sketchiness, as though unable to reconcile its sharp sociological portraiture with the pleasures of a more robustly plotted crime yarn. While a diverse, high-wattage cast including Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Kate Winslet should draw some takers,

Wayne Fitterman Lands As Partner At Wme

Exclusive: Deadline revealed exclusively Friday that longtime UTA Production Department co-head Wayne Fitterman had left that agency and was in talks to land at Wme. I have confirmed that he has now officially joined Wme as a partner and that he will head Wme’s Production Department. As I wrote, Fitterman had expected to bring three of his cohorts along with him. UTA staved off that coup, but Fitterman brings 46 clients with him so far, with a lot more hanging in the balance. This is an unsung part of the business, covering cinematographers, editors, line producers, production designers, costume designers, and visual effects supervisors. But it’s important. Aside from making piles of money, the department is a breeding ground for first-time directors. Among the clients Fitterman has brought with him are Jenny Beavan (The King’s Speech), Mark Bridges (The Artist), Bruno Delbonnel (Inside Llewyn Davis), Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood

Oscar winners explain why editing, sound editing, sound mixing, and cinematography Aren't technical categories
Leading up to the Oscars, we looked at four categories moviegoers may mistakenly think of as “technical.” The truth is, there were no technical categories in last night’s telecast: Every winner was honored for his or her creative contribution to the film. In case you missed those earlier pieces — which explain what editors, sound editors, sound mixers, and cinematographers actually do — here are excerpts from winners in those categories that prove the point:

2013 Academy Award Winners

If you didn't tune in for the Academy Awards last night, here's a short breakdown of what you missed: William Shatner showed up from the future, Jennifer Lawrence tripped and fell, and Michelle Obama co-presented the award for Best Picture. It was kind of a weird night, but for the most part, the hardware was handed out to all of the expected parties. Argo won Best Picture, Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor and Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress. If there was a surprise, it was that Life of Pi walked away with the most awards (4) including Best Director for Ang Lee. Zero Dark Thirty got shut out of everything except for Best Sound Editing (in a rare tie with Skyfall). Quentin Tarantino was also a pleasant surprise for Best Original Screenplay. What did you think of this year's Oscars? What was the highlight of the night? How would you rate Seth McFarlane as host?

Oscars 2013 Live: Winners & Losers Listed In Full

This evening’s Oscar ceremony is now over, and with the dust settling on the biggest awards ceremony of the entire year, and the winners and losers celebrating and commiserating together, we’ve put together a full list of the winners (as well as the beaten nominees) for this year’s awards.

Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain nailed the red carpet, apparently, and Sandra Bullock did wonderful things with a diamond hair-clip, while Bradley Cooper and Chris Pine both proved that beards are very much the hot thing right now. But the big events were yet to happen inside the La venue, as the audience sat ready to receive host Seth MacFarlane, and his inevitably cutting humour.

For the most part, MacFarlane was reserved, though a few barbs did land before the end of the night. He played his part also in the excellent musical staging throughout the ceremony, whose highlights featured Shirley Bassey,
