“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” drops one final Trailer

After much hype, yesterday during Monday Night Football the last Trailer for Episode VII of the Star Wars saga was dropped on the masses. I’ll have it for you below, of course, but I’m going to use this occasion to talk a bit more and perhaps even repeat myself about[...]

Two-time Academy Award® nominated actor Will Smith will be honored with the “Hollywood Actor Award” for his performance in Concussion, and Academy Award® winning actress Jane Fonda will receive the “Hollywood Supporting Actress Award” for her role Paolo Sorrentino’s Youth. The “19th Annual Hollywood Film Awards” will be hosted[...]

Bradley Cooper will try to cook up another hit with “Burnt”

Over the past half decade or so, Bradley Cooper has gone from an up and coming supporting player to one of Hollywood’s biggest A-listers. Right now, he’s a huge movie star, one who is a favorite of both Academy members as well as theater goers. With the release starting this[...]

“Beasts of No Nation” could be a history making awards player

Over the weekend, cinema goers as well as Netflix subscribers were both given access to one of the year’s more intriguing awards contenders. In some ways, the impending Oscar campaign for Beasts of No Nation is unlike any that we’ve ever seen before. Beyond just being a dark film from[...]

The Hollywood Film Awards Series: James Corden is the HFA host, but who will be Oscar’s?

With the recent announcement that James Corden was going to be the host of the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards, I was struck by two notions. One was that it was a perfect reason to have another installment in the Hollywood Film Awards Series that we’ve been doing here, but[...]

A first crack at Golden Globe predictions

Now that we’re well into the fall months and about to enter the tail end of the 2015 movie release season, I wanted to take my first crack at some Golden Globe predictions. I’ll be mixing these in with Oscar predictions going forward, but early Globe picks are always interesting[...]

Brie Larson and “Room” are bigger contenders than expected so far this season

Slowly but surely, it seems like Room is turning into the little film that could. Initially thought to be a fringe contender of sorts, it’s been gaining steam as the weeks pass. Between a big win at the Toronto International Film Festival and buzz that lead actress Brie Larson could[...]

Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies” looks to appeal to the classical side of Oscar voters

Usually, the run up to a new Steven Spielberg film is a bit longer and more buzzed about than the one currently for Bridge of Spies. Even from the moment it was first announced as being his latest collaboration with Tom Hanks, things moved quickly and a bit under the[...]

“Truth” seeks to be a second Oscar vehicle for Cate Blanchett

In some ways, the film Truth is the “other” film in this year’s awards race, which can be either a blessing or a curse, depending on the situation. It’s the “other” Cate Blanchett Oscar player besides Carol, and the “other” journalism tale this season besides Spotlight. I’ll have plenty more[...]
