Spotlight on the Stars: Denzel Washington

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at pretty much one of the definitions of an A-list actor. He’s Denzel Washington, a two time Academy Award winning thespian and giant in the industry. Washington does more than just act of course, he’s an iconic movie star,[...]

Re-ranking the contenders in Best Picture

With the festival season well underway and a good portion of the contenders for Best Picture having screened or about to screen, now seems like as good a time as any to take a look at the category and see what’s what in an expanded fashion. I did this with[...]

“American Sniper”: Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood enter the Oscar race

Yesterday it was announced that Clint Eastwood will have a second 2014 release hoping to sway Academy voters, and this one is a far more appealing fit for Oscar. It’s his adaptation of American Sniper, which Bradley Cooper stars in and has championed to the big screen. Cooper in fact[...]

Zach Braff is back and hopefully here to stay

Today marks the release of actor/filmmaker Zach Braff’s second directorial outing in Wish I Was Here, and it’s only his second film in a decade, after making his writing and directing debut with Garden State. During the past decade, he hasn’t even done too much in the way of movies,[...]

Tom Hanks: The Top 25 (Best Actor)

Clint Eastwood: Spotlight on the Stars

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to go old school and take a look at a classic A-lister, and that happens to be one Clint Eastwood. Depending on your age, he’s either a director who used to be an actor or a childhood icon who’s now become a rather[...]

Steve Carell: 2015 Best Actor contenders

As you folks all know by now, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions (including my own) at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think will happen in six months, but it’s another thing entirely to actually know something about who[...]

Predicting the Palme d’Or at Cannes

HOLLYWOOD ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK: Over at the Cannes Film Festival tomorrow, the awards announcements will take place, leading up to the crowning of this year’s Palme d’Or winning film. There doesn’t seem to be a movie there that’s the obvious frontrunner, so we have a situation where the festival jury (led[...]

“Foxcatcher” has announced itself as an awards player at Cannes

Earlier this week, Bennett Miller’s third directorial outing Foxcatcher debuted at the Cannes Film Festival to pretty much rave reviews. In an instant, it went from a potential Oscar hopeful to a likely nominee. Ever since pundits like myself first thought the movie was hitting last year, it’s been spoken[...]
