Katharine Hepburn movies: 20 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Lion in Winter,’ ‘On Golden Pond,’ ‘Bringing Up Baby’
Katharine Hepburn would’ve celebrated her 112th birthday on May 12, 2019. With four Oscars victories in Best Actress, Hepburn holds the record for the most wins by any performer, but how many of her titles remain classics? In honor of her birthday, let’s take a look back at 20 of her greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1907, Hepburn got her start on the stage before setting her sights on Hollywood, winning her first Oscar for playing an aspiring Broadway star in “Morning Glory” (1933). Despite this early success, Hepburn found herself labeled “box office poison” after a series of flops throughout the decade. She returned to theater with “The Philadelphia Story,” and the 1940 film version provided her with a big screen comeback from which she never faltered.

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress
Historically the Best Actress Oscar has usually been awarded to an ingenue while the Best Actor prize is typically taken by a veteran. But these age biases could be changing. While a whopping 32 of the 92 Best Actress champs at the have been in their 20s when they picked up their Oscars, the last two women to win were 60-year-old Frances McDormand and 45-year-old Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”). And Colman’s closest rival was Glenn Close (“The Wife”), who was hoping for her first win at age 71. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Actress.)

Fifteen of the 92 Best Actress winners, including Colman, were in their 40s when they took to the stage while 34 were thirtysomething. Julianne Moore was 54 when she finally won after four losses for “Still Alice” in 2015. The only other Best Actress winner in her 50s was theater veteran Shirley Booth who won for reprising

Which 12 actresses won Oscars for the wrong lead roles? Will Glenn Close join this group?
Glenn Close is inching ever closer to finally getting her long-overdue Oscar on her seventh try. So far, her lead performance in “The Wife” has lined her shelves with such trophies as a Golden Globe, a Critics’ Choice honor (although she shared the prize in a rare tie with Lady Gaga in“A Star Is Born”) and a Screen Actors Guild prize. Pending is the Independent Spirit Awards. Save for the BAFTAs, where her British rival, Olivia Colman of “The Favourite” ruled, Close’s trajectory this season has yet to hit a speed bump.

But let’s be honest. Will anyone 10 years from now be able to summon the film that finally gave her the gold? True, Close is marvelously nuanced in a slow-burn performance as an undervalued spouse of a preening, narcissistic Nobel Prize-winning author (Jonathan Pryce). But while “The Wife” has a relatively

Right Actress, Wrong Lead Role to Win an Oscar

Right Actress, Wrong Lead Role to Win an Oscar
“The right actors win Oscars, but for the wrong roles,” Katharine Hepburn once said. She should know. Her first of four still-record acting wins was in her third feature, 1933’s “Morning Glory,” when she played an aspiring actress — not exactly a stretch for her back then. Me, I like the Great Kate best when she is matched with a male sparring partner who is at her level, such as Humphrey Bogart in 1951’s “The African Queen” or Spencer Tracy in 1942’s “Woman of the Year.” But I can’t grouch too much over her later-life wins for 1967’s “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” 1968’s “The Lion in Winter” or 1981’s “On Golden Pond,” given that her co-stars were Tracy, Peter O’Toole and Henry Fonda.

Glenn Close would be the 13th Best Actress Oscar champ as the sole nominee for her film

Glenn Close would be the 13th Best Actress Oscar champ as the sole nominee for her film
It could be lucky No. 7 and 13 for Glenn Close. She picked up her seventh Oscar nomination on Tuesday, for Best Actress for “The Wife,” which did not get any other nominations. If Close’s name is finally in the envelope on Oscar day, she’d be the 13th winner in the category as the only nominee for her film.

The first 12 were:

1. Mary Pickford, “Coquette” (1928/29)

2. Marie Dressler, “Min and Bill” (1930/31)

3. Helen Hayes, “The Sin of Madelon Claudet” (1931/32)

4. Katharine Hepburn, “Morning Glory” (1932/33)

5. Bette Davis, “Dangerous” (1935)

6. Joanne Woodward, “The Three Faces of Eve” (1957)

7. Sophia Loren, “Two Women” (1961)

8. Jodie Foster, “The Accused” (1988)

9. Kathy Bates, “Misery” (1990)

10. Jessica Lange, “Blue Sky” (1994)

11. Charlize Theron, “Monster” (2003)

12. Julianne Moore, “Still Alice” (2014)

Twelve times in the Oscars’ 90-year history doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is when you look at Best Actor, which only has five solo nominee winners: Emil Jannings, Jose Ferrer, Cliff Robertson, Michael Douglas and Forest Whitaker.

Could Best Actress result in Oscar tie between Lady Gaga and Glenn Close, exactly 50 years after Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand?

Could Best Actress result in Oscar tie between Lady Gaga and Glenn Close, exactly 50 years after Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand?
At this weekend’s Critics’ Choice Awards, there was a shocking tie for Best Actress between Lady Gaga (“A Star is Born”) and Glenn Close (“The Wife”). For many awards pundits, this felt reminiscent of the 1968 Oscars when Katharine Hepburn (“The Lion in Winter”) and Barbra Streisand (“Funny Girl”) tied for Best Actress. As this year actually marks the 50th anniversary of that infamous tie, might the current Oscar race for Best Actress end in a similar result?

Going into the 1968 Oscars, Hepburn was a respected veteran who at that point had already received 10 nominations from the academy and two wins for 1933’s “Morning Glory” and 1967’s “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” Meanwhile, Streisand was a newcomer to Hollywood when she made her motion picture debut by reprising her

Flight Paths — Robert Todd

Flight Paths by Robert Todd.

The Underground Film Journal mourns the passing of prolific experimental filmmaker Robert Todd, who passed away on August 18, 2018.

Todd was Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of Visual and Media Arts at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. During his lifetime, he produced an extraordinary body of work in the form of short, experimental films that primarily captured his environment in minute and poetic detail. Many of these films are available to view on Vimeo.

While the Journal never had any personal contact with Todd, his name has appeared dozens of times in the underground film festival lineups the site posted between 2006 and 2015. However, Todd had been making films since the early 1990s. On February 23, 1999, his film Speak: When There Are No Words screened at the Robert Beck Memorial Cinema in New York City.

Although Todd was based in New England, he received several accolades in Chicago,

Porridge and politics: how the breakfast broadcasting war got brutal

Early morning programming on TV and radio is in the grip of a brutal ratings war. So what’s the perfect recipe for a hit show in these fractured times – and can we learn anything from the last 35 years?

Ian Jones, the author of Morning Glory, a history of breakfast television, remembers the excitement of January 1983. He was only seven and something crazy was about to happen. After decades in which Open University and the old test card were as exciting as morning schedules got, the BBC was about to reveal Breakfast Time, the live show that would launch a new era in broadcasting.

“I remember very clearly getting up early on the first morning to see this amazing new thing,” Jones, who is now 42, recalls of the show, first presented by Frank Bough, Selina Scott and Nick Ross. “It felt like such an enormous event.” During the introductions at

Kate Winslet, Diane Keaton, Mia Wasikowska to Star in ‘Silent Heart’ Remake
Kate Winslet, Diane Keaton, and Mia Wasikowska have signed on to star in “Blackbird,” a remake of Bille August’s Danish-language “Silent Heart,” with Roger Mitchell directing.

Mitchell will direct from a script by “Silent Heart” screenwriter Christian Torpe. Shooting is planned for August in London.

In “Silent Heart,” released in 2014, the mother was suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and was planning to pursue euthanasia with the help of her husband at the end of the weekend. But the decision became difficult to handle for the daughters and brought old conflicts to the surface.
