A first crack at SAG predictions

Ahoy folks. I’ve been tackling Academy Award and Golden Globe predictions for a while now, as you all know, but there are of course other awards and/or precursors worth mentioning. Over the rest of the season, I’ll be trying to figure those out too, with today marking the starting point[...]

Hollywood Contenders – “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”: Ten Films to see in December

First of all, I hope all of you enjoyed your turkey yesterday! Now, with the month of November all but over, it’s time to turn our attention to December, the final month of the year. After this, we start fresh, with a whole new set of releases, but with the[...]

Movies to give thanks for in 2015

“Carol” and “Spotlight”: Independent Spirit Award nominations announced

The year marches on! Yesterday, the Film Independent Spirit Award nominations were announced, marking another point in the awards season. Though not exactly a perfect barometer for Oscar, it can actually do some good in seeing which indie contenders are sitting in a position of strength. This year, it was[...]

“Brooklyn” and “Carol” Seek to Bring 1950s New York to the Top of the Oscar Race for Best Visual Effects

Pixar has another horse in the Best Animated Feature race with “The Good Dinosaur”

Yesterday, I got a look at Pixar’s other contender this year in The Good Dinosaur, and let me tell you…2015 is a good year for the studio. Sure, Inside Out is getting a bit of Best Picture buzz and has been called one of the best Pixar films in some[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Looking at the Short Film categories

If there’s a trio of categories that aren’t given the respect that they deserve (or frankly, any respect at all), it’s the short film categories. Be it Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short, or Best Live Action Short, they all are mostly ignored by the masses, especially when the first[...]
