“Carol” scores big with the New York Film Critics Circle

It seems like every single day now there’s a new major precursor announcement, doesn’t it? Yesterday, the New York Film Critics Circle announced their awards for 2015, and Carol was the biggest winner of them all. It managed to take a large number of awards from the NYFCC, perhaps to[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Where does “Carol” fit into the awards season now?

It’s been a very interesting year so far for Todd Haynes’ film Carol. Beginning at the Cannes Film Festival, it was feted as one of 2015’s biggest Oscar contenders, and throughout the festival season (including the New York Film Festival), that has more or less continued. The thing is, slowly[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Looking again at filmmakers this year due their first win

A few months ago, I took a look at writers and directors in the 2015 Oscar race who have previously been nominated for Academy Awards but yet to take home the gold. It was a fairly speculative piece, but now that the season is beginning to separate the contenders from[...]

“Spotlight”: Another September look at Oscar predictions

My oh my how things can change! Just a few weeks ago, I put up Oscar predictions for September that I thought I was pretty confident in. Alas, nothing stays the same, so now I’m back with an updated look at what the Academy Award nominations could look like. I’m[...]

“Steve Jobs”: Oscar predictions for September

Now that we’re well into the month of September, it’s time to kick predictions into high gear. It’ll be twice a month now in terms of updates, especially now that we’re also knee deep in the fall festival season. I love this time of year so much, which makes this[...]

David O. Russell and Ridley Scott: Which filmmaking contenders this year are most due for their first win?

Much like I said last week, of the many storylines that begin during awards season, few are usually as compelling as the ones centered around who’s most due for an Academy Award. I think that it’s usually pretty satisfying to see a former bridesmaid finally become a bride, as it[...]

“The Martian”: Oscar predictions for August

It’s almost crunch time folks! Yes, this is the last set of predictions before we start to get into fall festival season (pay close attention to the New York Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, and Toronto Film Festival), which in turn launches the Oscar race. As such, you won’t see[...]

“Carol” gets a Teaser that firmly puts Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in the Oscar race

Hollywood Contenders: Depending on who you ask, one of the very first contenders for Academy Awards mentioned this year was Carol, the latest film from Todd Haynes. With a cast led by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, under the direction of Haynes, this has been pegged pretty much from day[...]

“Bridge of Spies” highlights the NYFF Main Slate

HOLLYWOOD CONTENDERS: Earlier today, the New York Film Festival announced the movies that would be playing in their Main Slate at the 2015 incarnation of the fest. We already knew that the Opening Night film would be The Walk, the Centerpiece film would be Steve Jobs, and the Closing Night[...]

Ridley Scott: Looking at potential Best Director contenders

Ahoy! As you folks all know from last year as well as my article last week, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think will happen six or so months from now, but it’s[...]
