“Loving” announces itself as an awards player with a great Trailer

Last week, we got two big Oscar friendly Trailers. The one I’m going to be talking about today is Loving, coming to us from filmmaker Jeff Nichols. He’s a writer/director who has been growing in stature the last few years, though this is his first overt play at awards. From[...]

Aaron Eckhart has plum supporting roles in “Bleed for This” and “Sully”

Late last week, we got two Trailers for what appear to be serious Academy Award contenders in Bleed for This and Sully. They have almost nothing in common, except for one actor…Aaron Eckhart. He’s a main supporting player in both films, with potential Oscar consideration on the horizon. Eckhart has[...]

A new Trailer for “Snowden” shows off the biopic as a potential Oscar player

Earlier today, a new full length Trailer dropped for Snowden, the Oliver Stone helmed biopic of a certain notorious whistleblower. This conspiracy/political thriller seems right up Stone’s wheelhouse, with an A-list cast on to help, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the title role. We’ve only seen little teases for the film[...]

“Miles Ahead” showcases Don Cheadle as a filmmaker

Last year at the New York Film Festival, I saw the fest wrap up with the directorial debut of actor Don Cheadle. It was the biopic Miles Ahead, a passion project of Cheadle’s that he’d been trying to get off the ground for years. It played at the Closing Night[...]

“I Saw the Light” is another would be Oscar biopic

Back in the midst of 2015, it seemed like the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light was all set to be a big Academy Award player. Considering how small this week’s platform release of the film is, as well as its middling festival circuit reception, that seems less than[...]

Ethan Hawke hits all the right notes in “Born to Be Blue”

If you’re anything like me, you’re a pretty big fan of Ethan Hawke. Over the years, Hawke has been among the most consistent and interesting actors in Hollywood. He floats in and out of the studio system at ease, keeping a presence both in blockbusters occasionally as well as often[...]

“The Program” attempts to turn the Lance Armstrong story into an Oscar vehicle

Once upon a time, it was all the rage to love Lance Armstrong. After all, his story was a ready made feel good movie. Now, having learned the truth about the athlete and seeing him disgraced, the story has taken on a whole new level and meaning. As such, there[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Is there room among biopic contenders for Bryan Cranston and “Trumbo”?

Among the many biopics swarming Academy voters this year (much like every other year), few will take you as much by surprise as Trumbo. I say this as someone who was very much surprised by how entertaining this look at screenwriter Dalton Trumbo and the Hollywood black list was, despite[...]

“Straight Outta Compton” is making the case for Oscar consideration

During the end of the summer, any surprise critical and financial success story seems to generate Oscar buzz. Frankly, that’s sort of the case whenever an early year or pre awards season release exceeds expectations. This year however, we have an interesting case to study in the biopic Straight Outta[...]

“Freeheld,” starring Julianne Moore enters the Oscar race with a touching Trailer

Issue driven films with a ton of heart usually find their way into the awards season one way or another. Hopefully, it’s because they’re good movies and legitimately important, either for the culture or the world in general. Sometimes though, it’s just due to how shamelessly manipulative they can be[...]
