Costume Designer Mary Zophres On How the Right Clothes Can Get Actors Into Character

Costume Designer Mary Zophres On How the Right Clothes Can Get Actors Into Character
“I think my magic hour is in the morning,” costume designer Mary Zophres told The Hollywood Reporter. “I think that’s the best time for me. Early in the morning, without distractions, without everybody asking questions, and it’s when I get my best ideas.”

Academy Award-nominated Zophres has designed wardrobe for films, such as First Man, La La Land, True Grit, Catch Me If You Can, and The Big Lebowski, but she’s had a knack for design since she was 7-years-old. “My mother was the first one to point out, ‘You’ve been designing for people since you ...

Why did the 1990 Oscars go back to having a host? Blame Snow White!

Why did the 1990 Oscars go back to having a host? Blame Snow White!
Ok, I misspoke. Yes, there was a calamity of sorts the last time that Oscar decided to ditch having at least one official host.

As I was writing about the possibility that the Academy Awards show might do away with having a host after the Kevin Hart debacle, I looked up if the star-filled event ever went free-form without an anchor since it began airing on TV. I noted there were four times when there wasn’t a true host and assumed that there were no ill effects afterwards.

See No host with the most? Word is that the Oscars are considering to go emcee-less after Hart failure

Well, I now must admit I was wrong. First, some history:

*The first three years, all back to back, went pretty much Ok with a cast of stars taking turns handling the chores. At the 1969 Oscars, the show’s producer, Gower Champion,

How Hailee Steinfeld Distinguished Herself From the Young-Hollywood Masses

How Hailee Steinfeld Distinguished Herself From the Young-Hollywood Masses
Hailee Steinfeld had as promising a film debut as a young actress could ever hope to have. She was 14 when she was nominated for an Oscar for her role as a plucky frontier girl out to avenge her father's death in the Coen brothers' remake of True Grit, the success of which provided Steinfeld with a crash course on the ins and outs of the Hollywood game between the film's December 2010 opening and the whirlwind 2011 awards season. Steinfeld, who beat out numerous other hopefuls for the role of Mattie Ross, didn't win the Oscar (that was Melissa Leo's year to win all the major hardware), but she scooped up more than a dozen awards from critics groups, including...

Costume designer Mary Zophres on making ‘First Man’ Nasa suits and how Ikea came to the rescue on ‘Buster Scruggs’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
Costume designer Mary Zophres has received two Oscar nominations for her work on Joel and Ethan Coen‘s “True Grit” (2010) and Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” (2016), and she’s back in contention this year for two distinct projects from the filmmakers.

Shortly after “La La Land”’s awards run, Chazelle recruited Zophres for his next project, his Neil Armstrong biopic “First Man.” “It was very much like ‘La La Land.’ It was just a different subject matter, but his approach is very much the same. He knows exactly what the film is going to look like,” Zophres said at Gold Derby’s Meet the Experts: Costume Designers panel, moderated by this author (watch the exclusive video above). “He’s very much a collaborator and is very open to ideas and to meetings and discussions and meetings and show and tells. He’ll be there whenever you need him to be there.

‘Bumblebee’ Review: The Best Transformers Movie By Far Actually Cares About People

‘Bumblebee’ Review: The Best Transformers Movie By Far Actually Cares About People
In 2007, the “Transformers” cinematic universe was launched by Michael Bay, and while the first film of the franchise made a whole lot of money, it was a surprise how bad it was. After all, if there’s one thing America’s greatest auteur of explosions should have been good at doing, it was directing a movie where giant robots fight each other. Instead, the action sequences of that film were pretty much incomprehensible nonsense, and the following “Transformers” films have only ever gotten more convoluted.

Thus, it is nice to report that in the new spin-off/prequel film “Bumblebee” (which hands the filmmaking reigns to “Kubo and the Two Strings” director Travis Knight), there are many scenes where giant robots fight each other, and in those scenes, you can actually see what’s happening. The Autobots and Decepticons toss each other around with slick judo-like moves and blast each other with abandon,

Jeff Bridges movies: 20 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Crazy Heart,’ ‘The Big Lebowski,’ ‘Starman’
While many children of famous actors follow their parents into the profession, it is pretty rare that the child equals or surpasses the achievements of their parent. A few names come to mind: Jane Fonda, Michael Douglas, Angelina Jolie. And Jeff Bridges definitely also belongs on that list.

His father was the highly successful actor Lloyd Bridges, who appeared in over 100 films and starred in multiple TV series including the popular “Sea Hunt.” Jeff’s brother is the Emmy Award-winning actor Beau Bridges.

Coen Brothers movies: All 18 films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Fargo,’ ‘The Big Lebowski,’ ‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’
Joel Coen celebrates his 64th birthday on November 29, 2018. Alongside his younger sibling Ethan Coen, the four-time Oscar winner has created a number of quirky, singular titles spanning a variety of genres. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all 18 of the Coen Brothers films, ranked worst to best.

The Coens made their feature debut with the Southwestern neo-noir “Blood Simple” (1984). Shot on a shoestring budget with a then largely unknown cast, the film established the brothers’ talent for visually striking, wholly original stories.

Natalie Portman jumps into Best Drama Actress odds after Golden Globes switcheroo

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association threw a curveball on Monday when it placed “Vox Lux” star Natalie Portman in the Best Film Drama Actress field for the Golden Globes instead of Neon’s requested supporting designation. Before the news, Portman was in eighth place in our Best Supporting Actress odds, with 10 people calling a win for her. The stacked lead field will be tougher for Portman to crack, but she’s already shot into the top 10 in our predictions.

Portman is currently in 10th place, with 100/1 odds, trailing Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”), Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”), Viola Davis (“Widows”), Yalitza Aparicio (“Roma”), Nicole Kidman (“Destroyer”), Julia Roberts (“Ben Is Back”), Saoirse Ronan (“Mary Queen of Scots”) and Toni Collette (“Hereditary”).

Is Elsie Fisher (‘Eighth Grade’) on her way to becoming the 3rd youngest Oscar nominee for Best Actress?
It has been a good couple of weeks for “Eighth Grade.” It was one of the top nominees at the Independent Spirit Awards, earning four bids including Best Feature and Best Actress (Elsie Fisher). And at the Gotham Awards for independent film on November 26 it won both of its noms: Breakthrough Director (Bo Burnham) and Breakthrough Actor (Fisher again). It’s early yet, but could Fisher be on her way to becoming one of the youngest Best Actress nominees in Oscar history?

Fisher plays Kayla Day, who is awkwardly coping with her last week of middle school. It’s one of the year’s most acclaimed films with an 89 on MetaCritic and a 99% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Fisher’s performance was singled out by many, including Ann Hornaday (Washington Post), who praised her “masterful command of vulnerability, anxiety, resilience and steadfast self-belief.” And Jake Coyle (Associated Press) called her a “remarkably natural young performer.

Hailee Steinfeld Gets “Back To Life” With Transformative Experience On ‘Bumblebee’

True Grit earned Hailee Steinfeld a Supporting Actress Oscar nomination and The Edge of Seventeen was roundly praised, and with Bumblebee she’s traversing relatively new ground. Though 2013’s sci-fi drama Ender’s Game was definitely underrated, it won’t garner the sizable audience that is destined to see Bumblebee.

The project centers on Charlie Watson (Steinfeld), a youth [...]

Why ‘Leave No Trace’ deserves to be in the Oscar conversation

Why ‘Leave No Trace’ deserves to be in the Oscar conversation
Leave No Trace” indeed seems to have disappeared without a trace from Oscar predictions this season, despite strong pedigree. The indie drama is director Debra Granik‘s first narrative feature since 2010’s “Winter’s Bone,” an Oscar nominee for Best Picture that also earned her a nomination in Best Adapted Screenplay. Like “Winter’s Bone,” “Leave No Trace” earned universal acclaim from critics, maintaining its perfect score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. And yet, the film is virtually missing from almost every predictions list among Oscar prognosticators.

Based on the book “My Abandonment” by Peter Rock, “Leave No Trace” tells the story of Will (Ben Foster) and Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), a father and daughter living in the woods off the grid, who are found by social services and forced to adjust to common society. The bond between Will and Tom is the cornerstone of the film, as they are both

‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’ Review (Netflix)

Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest cinematic venture offers a few firsts for the renowned auteurs in their illustrious careers. A first for the pair to shoot digitally rather than on film and their first dabble on a streaming site in a Netflix exclusive. However, even in the vein of exciting possibility and different roads explored, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is perhaps their biggest disappointment and misfire in some time. Possibly even the worst entry throughout their often glorious and chaotic filmography.

The issues that arise from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is both structure and pacing. Taking an anthology approach which evolved from an intended short series for Netflix,

Dietrich & von Sternberg in Hollywood

With her commanding screen presence, Marlene Dietrich was an early cinema force to be reckoned with. Taking far more control over her image that her colleagues, the German actress found a fruitful relationship with Josef von Sternberg in Hollywood. The handful of Paramount films they made together were feats of immaculate production design and powerful onscreen charisma, courtesy of Dietrich. The Criterion Collection’s beautiful box set is a gem, complete not only with sparkling restorations and special features, but a selection
