2018 Indie Spirit Awards predictions: Laurie Metcalf (‘Lady Bird’) will hand Allison Janney (‘I, Tonya’) her first televised loss

2018 Indie Spirit Awards predictions: Laurie Metcalf (‘Lady Bird’) will hand Allison Janney (‘I, Tonya’) her first televised loss
Laurie Metcalf will give one televised acceptance speech, at least according to our latest Independent Spirit Awards predictions. While Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) has decimated the field since the televised awards started and is the favorite to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, our odds still have the “Lady Bird” star beating her for the Spirit Award.

Metclaf, the predicted champ since nominations were announced in November, holds an 8/13-odd lead over Janney (3/2 odds). None of the other nominees, Holly Hunter (“The Big Sick”), Lois Smith (“Marjorie Prime”) and Taliah Lennice Webster (“Good Time”), are predicted to win.

Metcalf’s tender, subtle performance in a film by indie darling Greta Gerwig checks a lot of boxes, but Spirit Awards voters also have no problem rubber-stamping an Oscar frontrunner if they’re on the shortlists. In 2014, all four

Geffen Playhouse Cancels Neil Labute’s ‘Fat Pig,’ Subs in New Play by Amanda Peet

  • The Wrap
L.A.’s Geffen Playhouse announced Monday that it has canceled plans to produce playwright-filmmaker Neil Labute’s play “Fat Pig,” which had been scheduled to begin performances this spring. The Geffen instead announced plans to mount the world premiere of actress-turned-playwright Amanda Peet’s “Our Very Own Carlin McCullough,” with performances to begin this summer. The move follows the decision by Off Broadway’s nonprofit McC Theater to end its longtime relationship with Labute and cancel an upcoming production of his new play “Reasons to Be Pretty Happy,” which had been scheduled to premiere this summer.

2018 Indie Spirit Awards predictions: Laurie Metcalf (‘Lady Bird’) will exact revenge on Allison Janney (‘I, Tonya’)

2018 Indie Spirit Awards predictions: Laurie Metcalf (‘Lady Bird’) will exact revenge on Allison Janney (‘I, Tonya’)
Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) has been unstoppable on the circuit since the televised awards shows began, flipping the script on critical darling Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird”). Metcalf is still giving chase to Janney for the Best Supporting Actress BAFTA and Oscar, but there will be one place she’ll prevail, according to our latest predictions: the Independent Spirit Awards.

Metcalf has 1/2 odds over Janney’s 5/2 odds, with seven Experts, three Editors and 18 of our Top 24 Users, who scored the best last year, picking the once and future “Roseanne” star. They’re both well ahead of “The Big Sick”’s Holly Hunter (50/1 odds), “Marjorie Prime”’s Lois Smith (66/1 odds) and “Good Time”’s Taliah Lennice Webster (100/1 odds), none of whom earned Oscar nominations.

Indeed, Metcalf’s quieter but no less superb performance is more in line with what the Indie Spirits usually recognizes. “Lady Bird” also has four nominations to “I,

5 Reasons to see The Hitman's Bodyguard5 Reasons to see The Hitman's BodyguardAdriana Floridia11/21/2017 11:15:00 Am

Every year needs a good action comedy, and that's just what we got with The Hitman's Bodyguard.

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson make for a perfect pair in this film where Jackson plays an assassin who is being protected by one of the world's former best bodyguards (Reynolds). However, these two have a past, making their newfound friendship nearly impossible.

Here are five reasons to see this year's hit action-comedy, The Hitman's Bodyguard!

The Location

The Hitman's Bodyguard takes place across Europe, but most notably in Amsterdam. Watching Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson banter, fight, and go on crazy car and boat chases is already awesome, but set among the beautiful canals of this city, it's even better.

The Stunts

Just as we were saying, there are some awesome stunts in this film,

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season
Mother-daughter relationships have always been the stuff of great drama. And the Oscars are no exception. Three decades ago the “Moonstruck” acting duo Olympia Dukakis and Cher both won gold for playing a strong-willed New York Italian mother and her feisty daughter. Six years later, as a mute Scottish teacher and her de facto interpreter in New Zealand, Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin repeated that twofer triumph with Jane Campion’s “The Piano.”

Onscreen mother-daughter conflict has resulted in other dual Academy Award nominations: selfless Barbara Stanwyck tricked Anne Shirley into marrying rich in tearjerker “Stella Dallas” (1937); Meryl Streep’s big mouth inspired a rebellious Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County” (2013); Piper Laurie was literally crucified by Sissy Spacek in “Carrie” (1976). At the start of this decade, Mo’Nique won an Oscar portraying the sexually abusive parent of fellow “Precious” nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Back in 1984, both Shirley MacLaine and

New Mayhem Images Tease A Bloody Office Brawl

If you’ve been wondering what fan favourite actor Steven Yeun has been up to since the infamous and brutal death of his character on The Walking Dead, wonder no more. Here he is, gloriously and deservedly front and centre in a new batch of photos for an upcoming action-horror movie about workplace frustrations, and how to work them out. It’s called Mayhem and is directed by Joe Lynch (Everly), from a script written by Matias Caruso (in his feature length debut).

If the pics below put you in mind of 2016’s The Belko Experiment, you’re not incorrect. Both focus their action around violence between people trapped in an office environment for an extended period of time. However, there is one important difference.

Where The Belko Experiment is steeped in conspiracy and suspicion, Mayhem could not be simpler. The film sees an infection sweep through the offices of Towers & Smythe Consulting,

Game Of Thrones Director Admits The Timeline Of Last Episode Is 'A Little Hazy'

This season of Game of Thrones seems to be a bit polarizing from fans. On one hand, you have fans who Love the fact that they’re getting so many payoffs over so short a period of time. After six seasons of dedicated viewing, and hours upon hours of devotion to dozens of characters, it’s nice to see them all pay off in a meaningful way. Then, you also have some fans who understandably think that the pacing has gotten ridiculous. Events that would normally take a full season are now happening within an episode, and some argue it takes away from the meditative pacing of the book and the first five or six seasons.

Catalog From The Beyond: John Carpenter’s Elvis (1979)

  • DailyDead
All right, gang, I’m going to need for you to bear with me as I take an abrupt left turn for this month’s column. I’ve been wanting to do a John Carpenter movie for a while now, but the problem is that he doesn’t have many “B-sides” that people haven’t talked about ad nauseum. Our very own Patrick Bromley recently covered one of his more relatively obscure entries with Prince of Darkness, and Scott Drebit gave his take on that one with the William Shatner mask. So, to find new territory, I had to go back to 1979, a year after Carpenter released his breakthrough masterpiece, but just before he churned out a series of classics in the early ’80s that would cement his legacy as one of the greatest horror directors of all time. It’s at this tipping point that Carpenter directed a made-for-tv

Behind the scenes at IMAX for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk

There are few directors who are as concerned with preserving and enhancing the cinematic experience the way Christopher Nolan is.

Constantly improving and finding new ways to tell stories, with Dunkirk, Nolan made the film using IMAX cameras for about 70% of the shoot (which is more than nearly any film before it).

Nolan's World War II film follows allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France who are surrounded by the German army and evacuated during an intense battle.

We're super pumped to see Dunkirk, especially knowing the visual spectacle it'll be. Our very own Tanner Zee visited IMAX to learn more about their technology and the immersive experience that they provide.
