‘Green Book’ Takes Toronto Film Festival’s 2018 People’s Choice Award

‘Green Book’ Takes Toronto Film Festival’s 2018 People’s Choice Award
Toronto Film Festival’s audience prize positions Peter Farrelly’s “Green Book” in prime Oscar territory — five audience award winners have gone on to capture best picture, including “Slumdog Millionaire,” “12 Years a Slave,” “The King’s Speech,” “American Beauty” and “Chariots of Fire.” In 2016, the prize went to “La La Land,” while last year’s award went to “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Both were nominated for best picture.

Peter Debruge wrote in his review of “Green Book” for Variety: “Featuring a pair of terrific performances by Viggo Mortensen as a goombah with a heart of gold and Mahershala Ali as multilingual composer-musician Don Shirley, the story may be unique, yet it goes pretty much exactly the way you might expect, with one huge twist: The credits read “Directed by Peter Farrelly” — which means this feel-good tour through American bigotry was made by one-half of the sibling duo responsible

‘Green Book’ Wins 2018 Toronto Film Festival People’s Choice Award – Oscar Harbinger?

‘Green Book’ Wins 2018 Toronto Film Festival People’s Choice Award – Oscar Harbinger?
Peter Farrelly’s Green Book is the winner of this year’s sometimes Oscar-predictive Grolsch People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. Last year’s winner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri went on to be nominated for Best Picture and won two acting awards, but the ultimate Oscar winner for Best Picture, The Shape Of Water did not even make Tiff’s list of the top three audience favorites.

This year’s first runner up is Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk which Annapurna will release on November 30 and was warmly received at its Tiff World Premiere last Sunday. Second runner up is Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma which Netflix will debut in December and which recently won the Golden Lion top prize at Venice and is expected to be a major awards player this season.

The trophy is considered a bellwether of sorts for the awards

‘World of Dance’: The hip-hop team Brotherhood made Canada proud, so pass the maple syrup and poutine, eh [Watch]
“It’s not just snow and maple syrup,” said a member of the Canadian hip-hop dance troupe Brotherhood before their performance on “World of Dance” during “The Qualifiers 6.” “We actually have a huge dance scene there that’s exploding right now.” Brotherhood have been together for more than seven years, starting their career by training in the basement of a church. They’re hoping to win the million-dollar grand prize in order to get a studio space they can “call home.”

But while Canada is more than just maple syrup, you can’t have a Canadian hip-hop dance routine without a little bit of ice hockey as a performance theme. They dressed in hockey uniforms and incorporated hockey sticks as props. What did you think of their performance? Watch it above, and find out what the judges had to say below.

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)
This year, a record 928 people were invited to join the motion picture academy and will be eligible to vote for the 2019 Oscars. Compare this intake to the totals of the previous four years: 774 in 2017; 683 in 2016; 322 in 2015; and 271 in 2014.

While Academy Awards nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

For example, actors must “have a minimum of three theatrical feature film credits, in all of which the roles played were scripted roles, one of which was released in the past five years, and all of which are of a caliber that reflect the high standards of the Academy.” For writers, directors and producers they need have just two of these credits.

The executive committee of the branch must endorse the application before forwarding it to the Board of Governors for final approval.

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens
In an astonishing move to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, a record 928 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to invite to join the Academy, but the Board of Governors makes the final call; this year, they did not invite Kobe Bryant to join although he won an Oscar for animated short “Dear Basketball.”

Clearly, people of color (38 percent) and women (49 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2017, the Academy invited 744 new members.

Seventeen Oscar winners are among the new members and 92 Oscar nominees. Nine of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women in the Academy has risen

‘Falling Water’ Canceled By USA Network After 2 Seasons

  • Deadline
Exclusive: There will be no second miraculous renewal for USA Network’s supernatural thriller drama Falling Water. The cable network has opted not to order a third season of the series, from the late Henry Bromell, Brotherhood creator Blake Masters, The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

For two seasons, Falling Water has been USA’s lowest-rated series in linear ratings, averaging 461,000 viewers and 0.14 adults 18-49 rating in Live+Same Day in Season 1 and slipping to 349,000 viewers and a 0.09 in Season 2.

Based on its linear ratings, Falling Water should’ve been canceled after the first season. But Its dense mythology, solid 30% L+3 DVR gains and steady viewership during Season 1 made the series a solid binge prospect for a streaming service. It was taken out and landed a deal with Amazon for exclusive Svod rights. The pact helped secure a Season 2 renewal by USA.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s City on a Hill starring Kevin Bacon heads to Showtime

Showtime has just ordered the new series City on a Hill from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. The crime series will star Kevin Bacon (The Following), Aldis Hodge (Underground), Jonathan Tucker (Westworld) and Mark O’Brien (Halt and Catch Fire).

City on a Hill is created by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler) and based on an original idea by Academy Award winner Ben Affleck. In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm — and then it all changed in what was called the “Boston Miracle.” In this fictional account, driving that change is assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rhodes (Bacon). Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve,
