The 2016 New York Film Festival will open with Ava Duvernay’s documentary “The 13th”

Go figure. I was recently wondering when we would start hearing about which big titles were playing in the main slots at the New York Film Festival. Then, yesterday morning we get word that the Opening Night spot at NYFF has been filled. That coveted position was announced to have[...]

Ava DuVernay looks to carve out her own path by turning down Marvel’s “Black Panther”

Last week, news broke that the courtship that Marvel had been engaging in with filmmaker Ava DuVernay had resulted in her turning down a chance to direct one of their upcoming superhero movies, namely Black Panther. For some, it was a bummer of an announcement, as she was clearly the[...]

Shailene Woodley and “The Fault in Our Stars” rule at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards

Last night, the 2015 MTV Movie Awards were held, with Amy Schumer given the hosting duties (hopefully in preparation for one day hosting the Oscars) and a wide variety of films up for honors. Frankly, it was a better group of nominees than usual for MTV. That being said, the[...]

“Birdman” soars at the Spirit Awards and Oscar ceremony

Well, it happened folks. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) took Best Picture from Richard Linklater’s Boyhood last night at the Academy Awards. It also managed to win Iñárritu Best Director over Linklater, as well as Best Original Screenplay as well, beating back Wes Anderson’s The[...]

OSCARS 2015 : Final Predictions for the Academy Awards

It’s time folks. I can’t delay it any longer, even if I’d like to. I must put out my final Oscar predictions. There’s no more time to go back and forth on if Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman or Richard Linklater’s Boyhood will win Best Picture, as well as if Iñárritu[...]

Predictions for the Independent Spirit Awards

Yes, the Academy Awards are on Sunday, but they aren’t the only big award show this weekend. The Independent Spirit Awards are on Saturday, making for a great one-two punch. I’ve always enjoyed the Spirit Awards as much as any precursor, even if their Oscar impact is basically nil. They[...]

A Mid February Oscar predictions update

We’ve come to the penultimate update to my predictions folks. With Academy Award voting going on hot and heavy, it’s really time to buckle down and try to work out some last minute Oscar hunches before final predictions next week, right? Much like I said last week, it’s pretty serious[...]

BAFTA and DGA continue to suggest a tight race between “Birdman” and “Boyhood”

For about 12 hours there over the weekend, it looked like the Oscar race had been settled. Once Alejandro González Iñárritu had taken the Directors Guild of America top prize late on Saturday night, it appeared that Birdman had locked itself in. After all, the film had basically swept the[...]

A February Oscar Prediction Update

With voting for the Academy Awards getting underway today as well as just over two weeks to go before the actual Oscar telecast, what better time than now for some updated predictions, right? It’s pretty serious crunch time here, so aside from tomorrow’s Director’s Guild of America announcement, there really[...]
