‘Her’ movie tops 2013 San Diego Film Critics Awards (Joaquin Phoenix in ‘Her’) The San Diego Film Critics Society has released its list of 2013 nominees and winners. The nominations themselves were quite eclectic, ranging from Best Actress nominee Brie Larson for Short Term 12 to Best Film nominee Gravity. The list of winners, however, tended to be more mainstream. For instance, Warner Bros.’ Spike Jonze-directed Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix as a man who falls in love with a Scarlett Johansson-voiced computer, was chosen as the Best Film of 2013, in addition to receiving honors for Best Original Screenplay (also Spike Jonze) and Best Score (Arcade Fire).

Joaquin Phoenix or Daniel Day-Lewis? New York Critics Awards’ Best Actor Predictions

joaquin-phoenix-the-master-movieJoaquin Phoenix or Daniel Day-Lewis? New York Film Critics Best Actor prediction [See previous article: "New York Film Critics Awards: THE MASTER, Michael Haneke?"] Will the New York Film Critics Circle go "foreign-language" this year in their choices for the acting categories? (Photo: Joaquin Phoenix The Master.) [List of New York Film Critics 2012 winners.] Though not impossible, considering that Amour’s Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva, and Isabelle Huppert are all in contention to some extent or other, no NYFCC award has gone to a non-English-speaking Best Actress since Norma Aleandro won for The Official Story back in 1985. In the other acting categories, the last such winners were Best Supporting Actress Gong Li for Farewell My Concubine in 1993 and Best Supporting Actor Charles Boyer…

2013 Oscar Predictions Best Actor

joaquin-phoenix-the-master-best-actor-oscar2013 Oscar predictions Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, Daniel Day-Lewis Joaquin Phoenix and Daniel Day-Lewis look like the two shoo-ins for the 2013 Best Actor Oscar at this stage. Phoenix’s nod will be for Paul Thomas Anderson’s critically acclaimed but commercially disappointing The Master; Day-Lewis’ will be for Steven Spielberg’s generally well-received Lincoln, in which the two-time Oscar winner plays the title role. (Photo: Joaquin Phoenix The Master.) 2013 Oscar predictions Best Actor: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Anthony Hopkins, and … Who else for the 2013 Best Actor Oscar shortlist? How about veteran Jean-Louis Trintignant for Michael Haneke’s Palme d’Or winner and inevitable Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee Amour? Trintignant, 82 next December 11, has never been nominated for an Academy Award and Amour is likely to…

WALK THE LINE Review - Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon James Mangold

walk-the-line-witherspoon-phoenix-1WALK THE LINE (2005) Director: James Mangold Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Ginnifer Goodwin, Robert Patrick, Dallas Roberts Screenplay: Gill Dennis and James Mangold; from Johnny Cash’s The Man in Black and Cash: The Autobiography Reese Witherspoon, Joaquin Phoenix, Walk the Line First of all, I must admit that before watching Walk the Line I knew nothing about Johnny Cash’s music. In fact, I used to think of Johnny Cash as a Las Vegas act in the style of Tony Bennett or Neil Diamond. If nothing else, James Mangold’s overlong and more than a tad melodramatic biopic that he and Gill Dennis adapted from two Cash autobiographies made me realize that Cash was a Nashville (not Vegas) act who became a cultural phenomenon of sorts…

Casey Affleck I’M STILL HERE: Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Lost Year’

I’m Still Here, Casey Affleck’s directorial debut about a year in the life of Joaquin Phoenix — it’s unclear whether that’s a documentary or a mockumentary or both — has been acquired by Magnolia Pictures. I’m Still Here follows Oscar-nominee Phoenix after he announced his retirement from films in the fall of 2008 and decided to pursue a new career as a bearded, bizarre hip hop musician. Phoenix, by the way, has been mentioned as a possibility to replace Edward Norton as a hip-hopping Bruce Banner / The Incredible Hulk in the planned Marvel production The Avengers. Casey Affleck won scores of best supporting actor awards and was nominated for an Oscar in that category for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert…
