“Jason Bourne” brings back Matt Damon to the franchise

Almost every A-list actor seems to have a franchise these days. In the case of Matt Damon, his is the Bourne series, of which he’s starred in three of the four outings (only missing The Bourne Legacy). On Friday, Bourne is back in Jason Bourne, with Damon back as well,[...]

Golden Globe results: Surprises and Upsets everywhere as ‘The Martian’ and ‘The Revenant’ emerge victorious

Wow. Just…wow. As much as I try to prepare myself for the unexpected, last night’s 73rd Golden Globe Awards was still something else. My predictions, along with everyone else in the industry, were way off, as curveball after curveball came our way. It turned out to be a very good[...]

Hollywood Contenders: Potential nomination morning snubs

As much as we tend to focus on who and what might get in on Oscar nomination morning, there’s also another factor to consider…who and what might wind up missing. Yes, for all but the most locked in of contenders, there’s the chance that a snub might be coming their[...]

Updated Golden Globe predictions

Believe it or not, the Golden Globe awards are coming, sooner than you think. Yes, it seems like just yesterday the nominations were announced, but now the actually ceremony is only a few weeks away (less than three weeks now, in fact). As such, it’s definitely time to update my[...]

National Board of Review honors “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “The Martian”, and more

Just moments ago, the National Board of Review announced their 2015 awards. In a bit of surprise, Mad Max: Fury Road took their Best Film prize, while Matt Damon and Ridley Scott gave The Martian the best showing overall, taking Best Actor and Best Director, respectively. NBR’s winners are always[...]

A second crack at Golden Globe predictions

Here in the heart of the month of November, I think it’s high time to take my second crack at some Golden Globe predictions. As previously mentioned last month, I’ll be mixing these in with Oscar predictions somewhat consistently going forward, but early Globe picks are always really interesting to[...]

Which categories will be the most competitive this year?

Of the many things that you can consider when thinking about the Oscar race, one that I like to ponder from time to time is which categories will be the most competitive. I hinted at this in another piece this week, but certain categories are shaping up to be stronger[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Could “The Martian” be an actual threat to win Best Picture?

If you took a gander at my predictions at the end of last week, you might have noticed that the race for Best Picture (as well as Best Director) might very well be coming down to Tom McCarthy’s Spotlight or Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Right now, Spotlight is very much[...]

Hollywood Contenders – “Steve Jobs”: Oscar predictions for November

Maybe I was just distracted by watching the New York Mets in the playoffs this fall, but I think the time is flying folks. It’s already November, which is getting to be late in the game. A couple of precursors have already announced their nominees, we only really have four[...]

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[...]
