Critics Societies Roundup 3

Another day, another roundup of critics organizations. First, the San Francisco Critics Circle chose their winners (updated list to be found here). Then we have the Kansas City Film Critics Circle, which can sometimes surprise with some cool, leftfield picks. Not so this year, as they mostly went gaga over 12 Years A Slave, which took home six wins. And ...

Can you shorten it a little: Makeup & Haistyling shortlist announced

After today, there are only seven hopefuls left for winning the Oscar for Best Makeup & Hairstyling, as the shortlist in this category was announced today. Known for their sometimes idiosyncratic (but valid) choices, not deterred by what’s popular in the Oscar race at large, the branch didn’t fail again this year, singling out films like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters ...

First Interstellar Teaser Trailer

The first teaser for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated Interstellar dropped today. Giving us very little in terms of actual footage, the Matthew McConaughey-voiceover trailer details specific milestones of American space travel. Longing for a return to that, he says, “we’ve forgotten that we’re still pioneers.” The film, starring McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Topher ...

Best Documentary shortlist announced

In all the frenzy that was the announcement of the NYFCC awards (in fact, they’re still at it as I write this, 270 minutes into it), we would almost overlook the fact that the Best Documentary shortlist for the Oscars was announced today. No real surprises here, although it seemed like Blackfish was snubbed for a moment (an error quickly ...

Independent Spirit Award Nominations: Fruit Fails, All is Lost Sails

  The 2014 Film Independent Spirit Award nominations have been announced and with them came expected nominations and some shocking snubs.
