Gotham Awards Analysis: ‘Get Out’ Is a Serious Awards Season Contender, ‘Wonder Wheel’ Is Shut Out, and More

9 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Gotham Awards aren’t exactly Oscar prognosticators, but a nomination builds early momentum for the long haul ahead; being left out at this stage is not good. Jordan Peele’s box-office hit “Get Out,” which led the field with four nominations (read full nominations list here), affirmed its status as a serious player. So did three hot fall festival contenders that received three nominations each: Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” (A24) and Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me by Your Name” (Sony Pictures Classics), both upcoming, and Sean Baker’s “The Florida Project” (A24), which is now in limited release.

Gotham Awards Once Again Remind of the Oscar Season Possibilities

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s rather wonderful that the New York-based Independent Filmmaker Project is always the one to get the awards season ball rolling with its nominations for the annual Gotham Awards. The organization’s process, recognizing a narrow field of categories decided by separate, tight-knit juries, is unusual, and certainly nowhere near the film Academy’s methodology. So the result is often a breath of fresh air before the inevitable avalanche of traditional fall Oscar fare begins dominating the conversation.

Movies like “Good Time” and “I, Tonya” aren’t likely to bask in the glory of best picture status, for example, but here they’re right at home. Nominations leader “Get Out” can grab more headlines before diving headlong into a season where it’s still an Oscar question mark (and perhaps the most exciting one in a year that promises to be filled with them). These and other critically acclaimed indie dramas like “Call Me by Your Name” and “The Florida Project »

James Franco on His Decision to 'Cut Back' on Acting: I 'Hit a Wall This Past Year'

12 October 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

James Franco is ready to make a change.

The actor, 39, opened up to Evening Standard Magazine about his decision to take a step back from acting and lead a more relaxed life after suffering what he calls a “midlife crisis.”

“I guess it’s called a midlife crisis. I’ve certainly hit a wall this past year,” he said. “It’s not like I went out and had to buy a Ferrari or anything like that. It was more about re-prioritizing and figuring out what was meaningful. I’ve been known as a guy that just did a lot of things. »

Hollywood Contenders – Looking at Best Adapted Screenplay hopefuls

12 October 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Moving right along! As you fine folks must all know by now and be potentially sick of hearing from me, it’s one thing entirely to read early Academy Award predictions. You do it in order to see what pundits like myself think will happen this winter, but, as I’ve often said, it’s a whole separate thing to actually know something about who and what will be in contention. To help out in that specific regard, I’m continuing to run down some of the major contenders in each Oscar category in order to prep you all for the season to come. Basically, the format will have me saying a few words about what or who I feel are the top tier contenders right now in said categories, along with a longer list afterwards of many of the other hopefuls that the Academy might potentially take a shine to. »

'Disaster Artist': Seth Rogen on James Franco's Choice to Stay in Character While Filming

7 October 2017 10:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

While filming The Disaster Artist — the comedy about the making of the infamously terrible 2003 movie, The Room — star and director James Franco stayed in character as Tommy Wiseau for the entirety of the shoot.

For the uninitiated, Wiseau has a distractingly eccentric personality, shoulder-length black hair, a vaguely Eastern European affectation and a style of dress akin to the frontman in an AC/DC cover band.

"I couldn't deal with it, straight up, for the first two days," remembers co-star and producer Seth Rogen. "People would come up and ask me, 'Where's James?' And I was always like, 'He's right fucking there!'"

Franco and Rogen, »

Based on a True Story: Why So Many Biopics Create Oscar Buzz But Become Box-Office Flops

5 October 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fall is the season of Real-People movies — the biopics that often fuel Oscar hopes. Recent weeks brought “The Battle of the Sexes,” “Stronger,” and “Victoria & Abdul” and there’s more than a dozen to come, including “Marshall,” “The Post,” “Darkest Hour,” and “The Current War.” There’s good reason to believe that a biopic might produce awards. In the last five years, 28 of the 100 Oscar acting nominees played real-life characters, as did four of the 20 winners. But when it comes to the box office, the odds aren’t as kind.

Read More:With ‘Dunkirk’ and ‘Darkest Hour’ Showing Strong, Will Churchill-Heavy Britpics Storm the Oscars?

Since 2012, there have been about 100 biopics including hits like “The King’s Speech,” “The Social Network,” and “Julie and Julia.” But while recent years featured real-life characters and stories in some of the biggest non-franchise hits, the format may have reached a saturation point.

Hollywood Contenders – A first crack at 2017 Golden Globe predictions

2 October 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Folks, we’ve reached a new point in the season. Now that we’re really getting into the heart of the fall months and pretty close to entering what is essentially the tail end of the 2017 movie release season, I wanted to take my first official crack this season at a set of Golden Globe predictions. In fact, I’d hoped to do this last week, but enough other news broke (plus the Blade Runner 2049 embargo lifting early) that it got delayed to these first days of October. As always, I’ll be mixing these in with Oscar predictions going forward, but early Globe picks are always of special interest to me, especially since sometimes you’re still guessing category placement and just what the tastes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will look like at the time. They’re almost impossible to accurately guess off the bat the first time around, »
