'Village Voice' Best of the Year: Charlotte Rampling, Kristen Stewart

Nina Hoss in 'Phoenix': 'Village Voice' Critics' Best Actress runner-up. 'Village Voice' Best of 2015: Offbeat picks include Géza Röhrig, runner-up Nina Hoss The Best of 2015 choices of the Village Voice film critics will not influence the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, or the SAG Awards. No matter. If you're interested in movies to watch or performances to check out, then you should pay close attention to those smaller critics' lists. More so, in fact, than the lists by academies, guilds, and press/critics associations with televised awards shows – or even critics groups worried about their “Oscar relevance.” In their case, buzz easily (and usually) trumps quality. 'Mad Max: Fury Road' tops The top three slots of the Village […]

New York Film Critics Awards Boost 'Carol,' Kristen Stewart

New York Film Critics Awards: Best Film winner 'Carol' with Cate Blanchett. 2015 New York Film Critics Awards have enlivened Oscar race Catching up with previously announced awards season winners that will likely influence the 2016 Oscar nominations. Early this month, the New York Film Critics Circle announced their Best of 2015 picks, somewhat unexpectedly boosting the chances of Todd Haynes' lesbian romantic drama Carol, Clouds of Sils Maria actress Kristen Stewart, and László Nemes' Holocaust drama Son of Saul. Below is a brief commentary about each of these NYFCC choices. 'Carol' Directed by Todd Haynes, starring two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (The Aviator, Blue Jasmine) and Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), and adapted by […]

SAG Awards Nominations: Helen Mirren and Surprises and 'Snubs' Galore

Helen Mirren in 'Woman in Gold': SAG Awards' surprise nominee. SAG Awards - nominations: Sylvester Stallone, Matt Damon 'snubbed' while Helen Mirren among surprising inclusions Screener issues and online streaming possibilities hated by film exhibitors and the Hollywood Establishment were two of the ingredients found in the 2015–2016 awards season mix. That in turn has led to a number of surprising omissions and inclusions when the SAG Awards' 2015 nominations were announced on Dec. 9. (Scroll down for the SAG Awards' full list of 2015 nominees.) In the film categories, most of the usual suspects this awards season were shortlisted. Examples range from Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara for Todd Haynes' Carol (the latter absurdly nominated in the Best Supporting […]

SAG Awards Predictions: Michael Fassbender, Brie Larson and Jennifer Lawrence

SAG Awards predictions: Michael Fassbender in 'Steve Jobs.' 2015 SAG Awards predictions The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations will be announced on Wed., Dec. 9. The SAG Awards, of course, tend to be a solid prognosticator of the Academy Awards in the acting categories – solid, but hardly flawless. Generally speaking, SAG Award nominations tend to be more populist and more Hollywood-centered than those of the Actors' Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts. But why would that be? Well, here are two likely reasons for the discrepancies. Screeners' availability at the time of voting. Academy members vote a few weeks after SAG Award voters; as a result, they have some more time to catch up with late […]

Rooney Mara in Best Supporting Actress Category: Online Film Critics Awards

Rooney Mara in 'Carol': Online Film Critics Awards' Best Supporting Actress nominee (with Cate Blanchett). Rooney Mara listed as supporting actress in Online Film Critics Society Award nominations The nominations for the 2015 Online Film Critics Society Awards have been announced. Although as much a lead in Todd Haynes' Carol as co-star Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara has been shortlisted in the Best Supporting Actress category. The Weinstein Company's campaign, widely criticized for promoting awards season (particularly Oscar) category fraud, seems to be working. Yesterday, Mara was voted Best Supporting Actress at the New York Film Critics Online Awards. Not working so well is Focus Features' campaign for Tom Hooper's gender-bending biopic The Danish Girl. Long before the film's opening, pundits […]

Charlotte Rampling in '45 Years.' Charlotte Rampling, Kristen Stewart winners: Boston Society of Film Critics Awards 2015 Those following the movies' awards season will enjoy a smorgasbord of winners, runners-up, and WTFs/How could they? today, Dec. 6, '15.

'American Ultra,' 'Hitman: Agent 47' Bomb: Weekend Box Office

american-ultra-kristen-stewart-jesse-eisenberg

'Sinister 2' poster. 'American Ultra,' 'Hitman: Agent 47' and 'Sinister 2': Weekend box office bombs American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47, and Sinister 2 are the new entries at the North American box office this weekend, Aug. 21-23, '15. All three of them are expected to underperform – with American Ultra having a particularly disastrous bow, especially for a movie starring Best Actor Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and former Twilight star Kristen Stewart. Whether you blame it on a glut of movies targeting the same audience, a lack of major box office draws, or poor reviews, only one of the debutantes is expected to score more than $10 million at U.S. and Canadian theaters by Sunday evening. 'Sinister […]

Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' Dancing Photo, Old Lois Lane Rumors

Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' dancing, with Garrett Hedlund on the right. Down memory lane: Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' images At the time best known as The Twilight Saga's conflicted human Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was cast as the exuberant Marylou in Walter Salles' film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic 1950s novel On the Road. Salles had been impressed with Stewart's pre-Twilight work in Sean Penn's Into the Wild. Based on LuAnne Henderson, Kerouac's close buddy Neal Cassady's first wife, Marylou is described as a “beautiful little sharp chick.” Apparently, one who also likes to move seductively to the sound of music – as can be attested by the Kristen Stewart picture above, which first came […]
