Catching up with the Best Original Score/Original Song long lists and the Foreign Language short list

In case you didn’t notice last week, a number of categories had their ranks thinned out by the Academy. Well, in that regard, I’m here to help. Yes, AMPAS thinned the herd in Best Original Score, Best Original Song, and Best Foreign Language Feature. They also managed to include a[...]

Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” drops an epic Trailer

Last week, perhaps lost a bit in the precursor season shuffle, was the First Trailer for Christopher Nolan’s next film. This is his shot at a war movie, specifically a World War II outing. It’s called Dunkirk and is beginning to roll out promotional material and publicity. Scheduled for release[...]

Oscar predictions for the first half of December

All of a sudden, a matter of days can make someone’s predictions feel really out of date, can’t it? My Academy Awards predictions are overdue, no doubt about that, so that’s what is going down today. With the beginning of guild nominations and the influx of other precursors, the race[...]

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is a welcome addition to the franchise

Over the weekend, a huge premiere in Los Angeles was held for the blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. That’s not the notable part though. What’s notable is that the initial buzz out of it was extraordinarily positive. This week, audiences get to see what critics have seen already,[...]

“Manchester by the Sea” leads a shocking Screen Actors Guild nomination list

Just a few short moments ago, the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild (or SAG) awards were announced. They mark the first of the guilds, which actually are solid barometers for Oscar. More so than a critics group or random awards body, this guild, along with the others, includes actual[...]

The Golden Globe nominations contained their usual surprises

Bright and early yesterday morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (or HFPA) announced their Golden Globe nominations for this year. As usual, it was a group of nominees filled with head scratchers, surprise (both pleasant and puzzling), as well as an overall imperfect view of what the awards season is[...]

Critics Choice Awards reward “La La Land” and Casey Affleck

Last night, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (or BFCA) had their annual awards ceremony, known as the Critics Choice Awards. It’s a star studded event that sort of continues the growing of the awards season. In just a few minutes, the Golden Globe nominations will be announced (look for that[...]

A final set of Golden Globe predictions before the nominations are announced

Believe it or not, next week will kick off with the Golden Globe nominations on Monday. As such, today is the perfect time to finalize some predictions for the award. Their nominations will mark the next stage in a fast moving awards season. We’re a ways away from Oscar announcing,[...]

“La La Land” is a modern classic and one of the best films in a long time

How often does a film positioned as a Best Picture frontrunner early on live up to the hype? Especially considering the rapturous festival praise for the movie, it would be understandable for Damien Chazelle’s La La Land to feel slightly overrated. And yet, somehow, this is perhaps still underrated, as[...]

15 finalists remain for nominations in Best Documentary Feature

Yesterday, the Academy announced one of their long lists, whittling down the Best Animated Feature contenders to just 15 finalists. They went from an initial listing of 145 titles, making this comparatively a very short list. It consists of all of the year’s big contenders, as you’ll see shortly, but[...]
