‘Eighth Grade’ Might Head the Class of First Features

‘Eighth Grade’ Might Head the Class of First Features
From the stripped-down authenticity of Jonah Hill’s “Mid90s,” to the fed-up outcry of Carlos López Estrada’s “Blindspotting,” to the prestige Oscar-bait trappings of Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born,” 2018’s class of debut filmmaking talent built impressively on the promise of cinema’s future. Directors such as Ari Aster (“Hereditary”), Aneesh Chaganty (“Searching”), Josie Rourke (“Mary Queen of Scots”) and Boots Riley (“Sorry to Bother You”), to name a few, also stepped up with singular offerings, forming a chorus of new voices with something to say.

Following in the wake of newcomer talents like Alex Garland (“Ex Machina”) and Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) in recent years, critical appreciation seems to have rallied around one name in particular: “Eighth Grade” writer-director Bo Burnham, who received a Directors Guild nomination for best first-time feature this week along with Cooper, Estrada, Riley and “A Private War” helmer Matthew Heineman.

Critics’ Choice film predictions: Richard E. Grant will stop Mahershala Ali from making history in Best Supporting Actor

Critics’ Choice film predictions: Richard E. Grant will stop Mahershala Ali from making history in Best Supporting Actor
Mahershala Ali won the Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe for “Green Book,” but he won’t pick up a Critics’ Choice Award on Sunday, according to our odds. Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) is favored to take home the prize, which would deny Ali the chance to be the first person to win this category twice.

Grant, who’s nabbed a slew of critics awards, has 9/2 odds to prevail for his scene-stealing turn as Melissa McCarthy‘s drinking buddy/literal partner-in-crime Jack Hock. Seven Experts, four Editors and 14 of our Top 24 users are going with Grant. Anne Thompson (IndieWire) is the sole Expert backing Ali, who also has the support of two Editors and 10 of our Top 24 users.

The Golden Globe champs don’t match with the Best Picture Oscar as often as you might think

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association anointed “Green Book” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” as the two best films of the year at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards. The former’s Best Comedy/Musical Film victory was predicted, but the latter’s upset was a stunner, as “Bohemian Rhapsody” was in fifth place in our Best Drama Film odds. So does that mean they’re the two Oscar favorites now? Not so fast.

Since the Globes has two film categories, it has double the chances of presaging the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner. And in its 75-year history, one of its drama or comedy/musical champs has gone on to win the Oscar 50 times, which is about two-thirds of the time.

Watch: Josh Brolin's Short Making Of Doc on 'No Country for Old Men'

"The truth of the matter is: [the Coen Brothers are] the most pleasant, collaborative, incredibly creative guys I've ever worked with. There's nothing I would say no to..." Hollywood studios usually release pre-packaged, publicity-designed behind-the-scenes featurettes for every movie. The sound bites, the clips, the interviews, the footage is all carefully designed to help with promotion. But this behind-the-scenes video is a raw, real, unfiltered look at what it's like to be on set making a feature film. Josh Brolin made this short documentary while filming No Country for Old Men, written and directed by the Coen Brothers, back in 2007. This "unauthorized" doc is already on the Blu-ray release of the film, but just found its way online (via The Film Stage) and it's worth a watch. Because there's nothing else like it and it's a fun blast from the past. The Coen Brothers – Joel and Ethan – are notorious for not giving many interviews

Oscars and BAFTAs gender gap study: Which years had the most female nominees and winners?

Oscars and BAFTAs gender gap study: Which years had the most female nominees and winners?
Over the first three instalments of this five-part series on the gender gap at the Academy Awards and BAFTAs, we found that the academy has made much better progress in recent years than their British counterparts. Indeed, if this trajectory continues, the Oscars will soon overtake the BAFTAs and the ratio of women to men will level out much faster. Be sure to read part one (historic overview), part two (last 20 years) and part three (projected trends).

But how have these increases in the number of female nominees panned out in terms of wins? Below, figures 7a and 7b display the percentages of female nominees and winners per decade.

Will Mahershala Ali be the 1st multiple supporting actor champ at the SAG Awards?

Will Mahershala Ali be the 1st multiple supporting actor champ at the SAG Awards?
The supporting actor category at the Screen Actors Guild Awards is the only one of the four individual acting categories not to have a repeat winner, but that could all change next month if Mahershala Ali prevails.

The “Green Book” star, who won for “Moonlight” (2016), is the only nominee this year who was even a previous nominee in the category, let alone a winner. But the Oscar frontrunner is currently in third place in our combined odds, behind Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Sam Elliott (“A Star Is Born”). Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”) and Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”) are in fourth and fifth, respectively. Grant, the critical favorite, and Elliott, one of “A Star Is Born”‘s field-leading four bids, are veterans with lengthy careers, which could give them an edge with a group that likes to recognize older stars.

The Simpsons Season 30 Episode 9 Review: Daddicus Finch

Homer kills the mockingbird as The Simpsons make a hero sandwich of Daddicus Finch.

TV

This The Simpsons review contains spoilers.

The Simpsons: Season 30 Episode 9

Sometimes it takes a classic to make a classic. We learned in 1973 that a hero ain't nothing but a sandwich and real courage has nothing to do with a man with a gun in his hand. After 30 seasons, The Simpsons knows it's as licked as a science museum ice cream cone before it's begun but begins anyway and sees it through no matter what lunch Lady Doris or Moe may be dishing out. You rarely win, but sometimes you do. "Daddicus Finch" wins.

It's hard to be an institution when you began as a scrapper. The Simpsons has been on TV so long people forget it was condemned in the eyes of President Bush and his wife Barbara. Like Saturday Night Live, the initial revolutionary

‘Green Book’ Named 2018’s Top Film by National Board of Review
Peter Farrelly’s “Green Book” has been named the best film of 2018 by the members of the National Board of Review, which announced its annual awards on Tuesday.

The honor puts the Universal film starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali in good position entering a time of year when numerous critics’ groups will be announcing their picks for the year’s best in the coming weeks, though the Nbr itself does not consist of critics.

Films in the Nbr’s Top 10 included “A Star Is Born,” “Black Panther,” “Roma,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Mary Poppins Returns.”

Also on the list: “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” “Eighth Grade,” “First Reformed,” “A Quiet Place” and “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

Here’s the Story of Martin Scorsese Breaking Out in Hives Before the 2008 Oscars

Here’s the Story of Martin Scorsese Breaking Out in Hives Before the 2008 Oscars
A year after finally winning his first Oscar for Best Director, Martin Scorsese returned to the Academy Awards stage in 2008 to present the category at the 80th Academy Awards. The filmmaker handed the prize to Joel and Ethan Coen for “No Country for Old Men,” but he was anything but comfortable standing before his peers. As Scorsese’s “Shutter Island” star Emily Mortimer revealed at the Museum of Modern Art’s annual Film Benefit, presented by Chanel, on November 20, Scorsese broke out in hives hours before the Oscars telecast.

Mortimer met with Scorsese and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio the morning after the Oscars to begin work on “Shutter Island,” their adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s 2003 psychological thriller novel of the same name. The actress told the MoMa audience, which included DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Scorsese himself, that she was incredibly nervous to meet with the two men. To break the ice,

Dietrich & von Sternberg in Hollywood

With her commanding screen presence, Marlene Dietrich was an early cinema force to be reckoned with. Taking far more control over her image that her colleagues, the German actress found a fruitful relationship with Josef von Sternberg in Hollywood. The handful of Paramount films they made together were feats of immaculate production design and powerful onscreen charisma, courtesy of Dietrich.

The Netflix Original The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs Is Like No Western You've Seen Before - One Minute Movie Review

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is the latest film from Netflix and is an anthology film that tells 6 very unique stories. Starring James Franco (The Disaster Artist), Liam Neeson (Taken) and a bunch of other familiar faces, this is the latest film from writer/director duo Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country For Old Men). But is this Netflix original a solid addition to the streaming service’s mediocre library of originals or does it stand above the rest?

Since 1984, The Film Independent Spirit Awards began as a way to shine a spotlight on smaller art-house movies that often were made on a shoestring budget and came from entities outside the major studios. From its inception as an alternative to the likes of the Academy Awards, titles that were eligible were required to have a budget cap of $20 million, although exceptions could be made. It is also a more populist organization. While a select group of committee members choose the nominees, anyone who can afford to pay a yearly $95 fee can vote on the final outcomes online.

With Friday morning’s announcement of this year’s slate of Spirit contenders, it is as good a time as any to investigate just how independent these awards are these days. Check out how many times that Oscar and its spunkier low-budget sibling have agreed on the winners in similar categories in the past 10 years.

Skip Lievsay (‘Roma’ sound mixer) on Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘insane approach to making movies’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Skip Lievsay (‘Roma’ sound mixer) on Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘insane approach to making movies’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
Since sound re-recording mixer Skip Lievsay had worked on Alfonso Cuaron‘s “Gravity” (2013) and “Y Tu Mama Tambien” (2001), he was already attuned to the director’s “insane, crazy approach to making movies.” So even though “Roma” was a smaller-scale film than the Oscar-winning sci-fi epic they last collaborated on, Lievsay knew he still had his work cut out for him. “You just know that there’s always going to be a deeply emotional main movie, with a lot of other stuff happening in the background,” he explains. Watch our exclusive video interview above.

Cuaron based this film on his own memories of growing up in Mexico in the 1970s, focusing the story on a maid (Yalitza Aparicio) working for a middle-class family. “We didn’t know going in what was going to happen,” Lievsay reveals. “He told
