SEEWill Emmy winners Claire Foy and Regina King go head-to-head at 2019 Oscars as Best Supporting Actress?
“The Favourite” star Olivia Colman has been the subject of the classic, “Is she lead or is she supporting?” debates, for her highly acclaimed performance as Queen Anne. While Colman was being predicted by many
The winning picture is a “vital, beautifully made film,” said Lenny Abrahamson, president of the main competition jury. “’Joy’ is a provocative and unique film offering a devastating portrait of human resilience in the most inhuman of environments.”
In its review, Variety said the movie was a “fully inhabited portrayal of Nigerian migrant sex workers,” adding that “it offers a raw, fresh view on the currently ubiquitous topic of European immigration control, sewn through with sharp feminist perspective.”
“Joy’s” London accolade comes after it won the Hearst Film Award for female direction and the 2018 Europa Cinemas Label at Venice.

Jury chief Lenny Abrahamson said: "[Joy is] a raw, fresh view on sex trafficking with a sharp feminist perspective sewn in throughout… a vital, beautifully made film that my fellow jurors and I urge you to watch."
In a tongue-and-cheek segment on Friday’s "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," staff members were given the opportunity to ask the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate one question. "Late Show" writer "John" asked her opinion on the Fate of the Furious co-stars.
Clinton’s answer was unsurprisingly diplomatic.
That question remains unanswered for now, but at least we know that the new Salem (last name Saberhagen) can walk the black carpet. The black cat did just that at the show’s world premiere, a remarkable feat given how difficult it is to make a cat do anything it doesn’t want to without running away; this may be the surest sign

In “Broadway,” director Christos Massalas creates a colorful world of cast-offs and hustlers, set on the fringes of a city leveled by the Greek economic crisis. Produced by Neda Film and Bertrand Gore, of France’s Blue Monday Productions, and executive produced by Falliro House Productions, Massalas’ feature debut took part in Mia’s co-production market and pitching forum.
“Broadway” is set in a modern-day Athens that, while still bearing the scars of Greece’s decade-long freefall, brims with energy and possibility. “It’s looking at a world that is in transition,” said Massalas. The director said the film uses “the city and its modern monuments” to probe at “the remains of a consumerist society,
The post is full of gratitude to costume designer Allisa Swanson, who “not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself.”
Blair also expressed gratitude to Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Elizabeth Berkley, whose brother is the one who diagnosed her on August 16. The actress now realizes she’s been symptomatic for years and believes she’s actually had Ms for “15 years at least.

Inspired by her own Iranian roots, “Mercy” is the feature debut of British-Iranian director Mandi Riggi. Andrew Eaton (“The Crown”) will executive produce, with a cast that includes F. Murray Abraham, Hiam Abbass, Emun Elliott, Sarah Snook and Yasmin Paige. The film was selected for Mia’s co-production market and pitching forum.
“Mercy” draws on Riggi’s upbringing in the U.K., where she lived until the age of 14, after her parents left Iran in the wake of the 1979 revolution. Though they arrived “with hope in their eyes” and plans for a better life, the director said the bittersweet decision weighed on them long afterward.

David Gordon Green’s “Halloween,” a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, obliterated the franchise record opening of $26 million, previously held by the 2007 Rob Zombie reboot. “Halloween” also notched the second-best start for an R-rated horror film following “It’s” $123 million launch. It also landed the second-highest debut for an October release, set earlier this month by “Venom” with $80 million.
Universal and Blumhouse’s “Halloween” is the 11th installment in the series, five of which have starred Jamie Lee Curtis as iconic avenging babysitter Laurie Strode, who is now a grandmother in the newest take. Carpenter returned to executive produce and compose the score for the R-rated thriller. The follow-up has garnered some of the best reviews for a series entry yet. While the last few iterations have been panned, “Halloween” holds a 80% average on Rotten Tomatoes.
A wealthy white Manhattan couple, Brooke and Jay, sit opposite their taciturn Barbadian nanny, Brittany. They are trying to sack her but it isn’t easy – in fact, Brooke is so racked with anxiety that she has to bolt from the room at one point to vomit. Brittany looks on, implacable and unimpressed. So begins Emma and Max, an agonisingly funny and abrasive study in race, white guilt and the ownership of suffering.
It marks the stage debut of Todd Solondz, the 59-year-old film-maker who has for more than 20 years been the barbed laureate of Us indie cinema. Most notorious is his 1998 black comedy Happiness, populated by characters including a phone-sex pest, a lovelorn murderer and a paedophile father,
The update comes from writer Fiona Seres, who reteams with “Masterpiece” after adapting “The Lady Vanishes” in 2013 from the Ethel Lina White novel that also produced Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1938 film. Like that project, “The Woman in White” explores the frustrations of a society that doesn’t listen to women or believe in their peril.
Mike Leigh sits before me, in his Soho office, a man without regrets – certainly with regard to his work, but probably in most aspects of his life, one suspects. If this doesn’t make him unique in the film industry, then he’s certainly in a tiny minority. The 75-year-old British director has made 20-odd films – from his TV work in the 1970s up to his latest release, Peterloo, perhaps his most ambitious and certainly his most expensive project yet – and he has never once had his arm twisted to compromise on his creative vision. He chooses the subject, handpicks the actors and the version we see on the screen is exactly the one that Leigh intended.
Wilson died at the age of 76 after a battle with leukemia on Oct. 6. The premiere episode of the ninth season of “The Walking Dead” aired the next day and was dedicated to Wilson’s memory.
“The Walking Dead” cast members Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus, Sarah Wayne Callies and Greg Nicotero spoke at Saturday’s event along with director Ernest Dickerson. Gurira recalled in her speech that Wilson went out of his way to make her feel comfortable on her first day when she joined the cast of “The Walking Dead” in its third season.
“Scott made me feel like part of the family as soon as I met him,” she said. “He also taught me to how to smoke a cigar.
This second feature by Alessandro La Parola, whose bittersweet comedy debut “E se domani” won some prizes and critical accolades, is loosely based on the director’s research about the period when Garibaldi in his effort to unify Italy invaded Sicily, then a lawless territory where gangs of female rebels formed. Footage of the film (pictured) revealed a genre-bender that mixes period costumer, Western, and action tropes. The trigger-happy killer among the four fierce women — who have joined forces to avenge cruelties that they, and others, have been subjected to — is played by Sicilian actress Margareth Made who emerged in Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Baaria.
