2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (November)

Very little to report for Best Actor this month as we have the same lineup as last month, minus Joe Alwyn – yet another casualty in the culling of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. Denzel Washington (Fences) and Manchester by the Sea‘s Casey Affleck’s point totals even remain the same for the third month in a row. Ryan Gosling (La …

‘La La Land’ gets Centerpiece Gala treatment at AFI Fest

Not that it needed more festival presence, La La Land, the current frontrunner for the Best Picture Oscar, is going to screen at AFI Fest as a Centerpiece Gala on November 15th at the TCL Chinese Theater. The film has already swept up audiences at Venice, Telluride, and Toronto (where it won that festival’s People’s Choice award) this fall on its way …

Review: ‘La La Land’ (★★★★)

La La Land is a film that often fights and challenges itself. It complains about Hollywood as much as it adores it (a line from Ryan Gosling that L.A. “worships everything and values nothing” is especially on point) and that paradox is only part of why it’s just a great film. It’s almost impossibly romantic and hopeful and wistful (like …

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (October)

Denzel Washington (Fences) and Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) are locked in their #1 and #2 positions, respectively, and even keep their same point totals from last month. Ryan Gosling moves up to #3 on the strength of his film La La Land in virtually every other category. Andrew Garfield (Silence) falls a bit and Tom Hanks (Sully) rebounds …

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (September)

As we saw with Best Picture and Best Director, we see in Best Actor for Nate Parker (The Birth of a Nation). He was #1 last month and now he’s down to #7 and barely hanging on. But again, these predictions for him and his film are purely reactions and gut feelings based on August and could change if the …

Venice Review Roundup: La La Land, Arrival and Nocturnal Animals

Three of Oscar season’s biggest titles made their debuts in Venice this week and the reviews so far have been pretty stellar. Sometimes a Venice launch of a highly anticipated film ends up with a decidedly muted response (like The Danish Girl last year) but not this year. These three Oscar hopefuls, which includes an Amy Adams 1-2 punch, are finding tanto …

New Trailer for ‘La La Land’ Features Original Song “Audition”

A new trailer for Damien Chazelle’s highly anticipated follow-up to Whiplash, La La Land, is here and with it a glimpse at another of the modern-day musical’s original songs. Like the first teaser, which gave us Ryan Gosling’s piano tinkling and his vocals on “City of Stars,” the new teaser gives us Emma Stone singing “Audition,” as she shrugs and shuffles …

2017 Screen Actors Guild Predictions – Film

Predictions for the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations have become a much harder nut to crack recently. In 2012, SAG merged with AFTRA (The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists), which increased their number from about 100,000 to over 165,000. While the Screen Actors Guild is made up of, as the name implies, actors, AFTRA is comprised of primarily …

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (August)

While the top five in Best Actor this month is the same as last month, Denzel Washington (Fences) eeks up over Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) to take over the #2 spot by one point. Nate Parker (The Birth of a Nation), in his directorial debut, still reigns at #1. Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) and Andrew Garfield …
