Michael Fassbender Wins 'Best Actor' for 'Shame' At 2011 British Independent Film Awards
12/5/2011

Michael Fassbender won "Best Actor" for his role as Brandon Sullivan, a New York sex addict, in the NC-17 rated Shame at the 2011 British Independent Film Awards on December 4. Fassbender beat out the likes of Gary Oldman to capture his latest thespian trophy for the film festival favorite this year from Director Steve McQueen. There is already Oscar buzz surrounding Fassbender for the same role and the opening weekend box office sales for Shame were anything but shameful.

If Fassbender gets an Oscar nomination for Shame it could firmly establish him as an A-list talent. The actor is known for his intense discipline and willpower in delivering convincing performances but it took over 15 years for Hollywood to notice. It appears that being GQ’s "Breakout Star of the Year" for 2011 is not the only accolade for Fassbender so far. The actor is routinely mentioned as the next James Bond and his upcoming film, Prometheus, is already generating blockbuster predictions.

McQueen and Fassbender are being hailed as the new Scorsese and De Niro duo for modern cinema. The pair will reunite a third time for 12 Years a Slave with Brad Pitt. One thing seems certain: Hollywood’s new Brando is also the male Meryl Streep for his shape shifting skills from role to role. Perhaps an Oscar is in his future soon.

These screenings were frequently followed by in-depth discussions with filmmakers, directors, actors, producers, and screenwriters. Voting ballots were tabulated by the accounting firm of Lutz & Carr, LLP.


The National Board of Review honors diverse members of the film community at their annual Awards Gala, which also acts as a fundraiser for student grant philanthropy. Hosted by Natalie Morales, this year’s Gala will take place on January 10, 2012 at Cipriani’s 42nd St. in New York City.

Glenn Close’s ‘Albert Nobbs’ and Michael Fassbender’s ‘Shame’ tipped for Oscar recognition
Irish themes making themselves apparent for this year’s Academy Awards
By
KERRY O’SHEA,
IrishCentral Intern

Published Friday, December 9, 2011, 9:37 AM
Updated Friday, December 9, 2011, 10:24 AM

Gossip about front-runners for the Oscars is already flying despite the ceremony not being held until February. The Huffington Post reports that this year the golden statutes are truly up for grabs, unlike in previous years when clear-cut victors emerged early.

Among those being spoken about for nominations is Glenn Close, for her work in the 19th century era piece about a woman posing as a man in Dublin, Ireland, as well as Kerry native Michael Fassbender for his work in the film ‘Shame.’ Similarly, Meryl Streep for her role as Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Iron Lady’ is also gaining steam.

Close refuses to jump to any conclusions when it comes to talk of nominations and awards. "I've gone through my whole career not believing anything's going to happen until it happens," Close said. "I don't expect anything. I think, just do your work, and that's what you've got."

And Close certainly did do her work for ‘Albert Nobbs.’ Having been involved in the 1982 off-Broadway production of the story, she’s been working since then to bring it to the big screen. Irishwoman Sinead O’Connor is also attached to the film and gaining some Oscar buzz also for singing the theme to the film.

In the film, Close stars as a woman posing as a man, in hopes of attaining a better life for herself. The Huffington Post points out that Hilary Swank claimed the Oscar for ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ in 1999 in a role that required her to cross-dress, similar to Close’s role in ‘Albert Nobbs.’

Michael Fassbender is also gaining more Oscar steam with the release of his latest film ‘Shame.’ In the movie, Fassbender stars as sex-addicted businessman who lives in New York City, after emigrating to the US from Ireland as a teenager.

The film, slapped with an NC-17 rating due in part to Fassbender’s full-frontal nudity, is undoubtedly explicit, but Fassbender gives the performance of his career. While doubts are high that Fassbender will actually win the Oscar for Best Actor, he’s practically a shoe-in for a nomination.

The Oscars without an appearance from acting great Meryl Streep is nearly unheard of today, as the actress holds the record for most nominations. Her role as Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Iron Lady,’ deemed controversial by some, is gaining Streep Oscar buzz as well.

Who do you think will be taking home an Oscar in February? Check out some of trailers below:

'Thor,' 'X-Men,' 'Transformers' and 'Tree of Life' among 15 official Oscar Visual Effects contenders

If it was a summer blockbuster it's on the list

'Thor,' 'X-Men,' 'Transformers' and 'Tree of Life' among 15 official Oscar Visual Effects contenders

The "Transformers" franchise is once more in the running for a VFX Oscar nomination.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the top 15 films in contention for the 2012 Visual Effects Oscar today and there were hardly any surprises.

Dominated by summer blockbusters, the Academy's Visual Effects Branch Executive Committee will narrow the list down to 10 in early January. At that time, all members of the Visual Effects Branch will be invited to view 10-minute excerpts of the shortlisted films on Thursday, January 19. At that point, the branch members will vote to nominate five films for Oscar consideration.

The 15 films announced today are as follows:

"Captain America: The First Avenger"
"Cowboys & Aliens"
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2"
"Hugo"
"Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol"
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"
"Real Steel"
"Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
"Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows"
"Sucker Punch"
"Super 8"
"Thor"
"Transformers: Dark of the Moon"
"The Tree of Life"
"X-Men: First Class"

The 84th Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

What do the Los Angeles film critics' awards mean for the Oscars?
By Adam Waldowski
Dec 11 2011 | 15:06 pm

Awards momentum behind "The Descendants" sagged when it was shut out at the New York Critics Circle Awards, but it picked up steam today by winning the Best Picture honors from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. That doesn't necessarily portend good Oscar news ahead. Over the past 25 years, only "Schindler's List" (1993) and "The Hurt Locker" (2009) lined up with both groups. However, LAFCA has a history of pushing ponies into the derby that ultimately went the distance, dating back to "Rocky" (1976) and "Unforgiven" (1992).

"The Tree of Life" came in second place for Best Picture, but received the consolation prize for Best Director Terrence Malick, thus bolstering his hopes for an Oscar bid. Every director who has won at LA has gone on to reap an Academy Award bid from 1990 onward. An asterisk must be disclosed for last year, which featured a tie between David Fincher ("The Social Network") and the non-nominated Olivier Assayas. His "Carlos" was ineligible at the Oscars because it originally screened as a television miniseries.

"Descendants" writer/director Alexander Payne's script was overlooked in favor of Asghar Farhadi's "A Separation." Payne had won a breakthrough honor previously for his "Election" (1999) plus script laurels for two of his flicks that won Best Picture at LAFCA: "About Schmidt" (2002) and "Sideways" (2004).

Best Actor was L.A.'s key race to watch. Whoever won would follow a hot streak of six men who became eventual Oscar winners: Philip Seymour Hoffman ("Capote"), Forest Whitaker ("The Last King of Scotland"), Daniel Day-Lewis ("There Will Be Blood"), Sean Penn ("Milk"), Jeff Bridges ("Crazy Heart"), and Colin Firth ("The King's Speech"). This year's trophy went to Michael Fassbender, who was cited for his work on "Shame," "Jane Eyre," "A Dangerous Method" and "X-Men: First Class."

As is typical for the group, they honored an off-the-wall choice in Yun Jung-hee as Best Actress for "Poetry." Their previous two selections -- Kim Hye-ja ("Mother") and Yolande Moreau ("Seraphine") -- never picked up a modicum of Oscar buzz.

'The Artist,' 'Hugo' Top Critics Choice Movie Awards Nominations
Published: December 13, 2011 @ 3:00 am
By Steve Pond

"The Artist" and "Hugo," two films about the early days of cinema that have been winning awards and nominations all season, have each received 11 nominations to lead the field at the Critics Choice Movie Awards, which announced its nominees early Tuesday morning.

But if it's no surprise that those films garnered the most noms from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the two films with the next-highest number might come as a shock.

The HelpOne is "The Help" (left), Tate Taylor's Civil Rights-era drama considered far more of an audience favorite than a critics' choice. The other is "Drive" (below), Nicolas Winding Refn's dark and unconventional action/art movie, which sits well outside the Top 10 in most pundits' polls.

Also read: After a Day of Critics Honors, the Awards Race Is Still a Confusing Mess

Rounding out the CCMA Best Picture category, which generally coincides almost exactly with the Academy's, are "The Descendants," "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," "Midnight in Paris," "Moneyball," "The Tree of Life" and "War Horse."

DriveBest Director candidates are Stephen Daldry for "Incredibly Loud," Michel Hazanavicius for "The Artist," Alexander Payne for "The Descendants," Refn for "Drive," Martin Scorsese for "Hugo" and Steven Spielberg for "War Horse."

The acting categories, each of which contained six nominees, include most of the top Oscar contenders: George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jean Dujardin, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt in the Best Actor category, Viola Davis, Elizabeth Olsen, Meryl Streep, Tilda Swinton, Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams for Best Actress.

Conspicuously missing in the acting races: Best Actress contenders Glenn Close ("Albert Nobbs"), Rooney Mara ("The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo") and Kirsten Dunst ("Melancholia"), and Best Actor hopefuls Woody Harrelson ("Rampart") and Gary Oldman ("Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy").

In fact, "Tinker, Tailor" might have been the most conspicuously absent film of all, as it failed to land a single nomination. Other films missing from the list of nominees include "Margin Call," "Contagion," "Take Shelter," "A Dangerous Method" and "Melancholia."

In the Best Animated Feature category, Pixar's "Cars 2" was not nominated, ending a string of category wins for the company.

Andy Serkis (strangely called "Andrew" in the BFCA press release) received a Supporting Actor nomination for his motion-capture performance as the chimpanzee Caesar in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," while Shailene Woodley was honored twice for "The Descendants" – once in the Supporting Actress category, and again in the Best Young Actor/Actress category.

Her co-star George Clooney received three nods – one as Best Actor, and two others as part of Best Ensemble nominees "The Descendants" and "The Ides of March." Clooney now holds the CCMA record with 13 nominations.

In the Best Documentary Feature race, Steve James's "The Interrupters" was once again overlooked in favor of a lineup that includes "Project Nim," "Buck" and Scorsese's two part made-for-HBO George Harrison doc, "Living in the Material World."

"The Muppets" dominated the Best Song category with three of the five nominations, while Sony Pictures Classics enjoyed a stranglehold on Best Foreign-Language Film, with four of the five nominees. Only "Le Havre" cracked the SPC lineup of "In Darkness," "A Separation," "The Skin I Live In" and "Where Do We Go Now."

The 11 nominations received by "The Artist" and "Hugo" were one shy of the record set last year by "Black Swan" – though to be fair, the number of CCMA categories increased dramatically two years ago to more closely mirror the Academy Awards.

NomsByFilmThe Broadcast Film Critics Association is the largest film critics' organization in the United States, with about 250 television, radio and online critics in its ranks. The CCMA is typically a far strong predictor of Oscar success than the Golden Globes; last year all four acting winners went on to receive Academy Awards, although the CCMA Best Picture winner "The Social Network" did not.

The Critics Choice Movie Awards will be presented on Thursday, January 12 at the Hollywood Palladium.

Golden Globes: A hunk of hot men for dramatic actor [poll]

Golden-Globes-drama-actor-n
The 81 voters in the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. may work for obscure publications and make any number of bizarre Golden Globe picks, but they seem united in their selections for best dramatic actor -- the hotter the better.

In a field that will have women and any number of gay men swooning along the red carpet, the HFPA's picks for the 69th annual awards were more than a little hunky-dory: George Clooney ("The Descendants"), Leonardo DiCaprio ("J. Edgar"), Michael Fassbender ("Shame"), Ryan Gosling ("The Ides of March") and Brad Pitt ("Moneyball").

Gosling also was nominated in the comedy or musical lead actor contest for "Crazy, Stupid, Love" in a category that isn't nearly as easy on the eyes (sorry, Brendan Gleeson, who was nominated for "The Guard") but does include Jean Dujardin from "The Artist."

Clooney was nominated three times -- for starring in "The Descendants," and directing and co-writing "The Ides of March." So expect the NBC cameras to be trained on the actor/filmmaker for much of the ceremony on Jan. 15.

Film Feature: The Best Lead Performances of 2011
Submitted by BrianTT on December 15, 2011 - 10:39am.

CHICAGO – Yesterday, we brought you some of the most engaging and memorable supporting performances of 2011. As much as I love some of the acting work in that feature, it’s nothing compared to the talent on display below. The fact is that the Best Actor and Best Actress categories this year are arguably more crowded than ever, with an amazing number of performances that will be remembered for years to come. My runner-ups, in both categories, could have easily beaten most other years’ top five lead nominees. It actually pains me to list some of them outside this year’s top five, but we’ve had an embarrassment of riches in 2011. What an amazing year for acting.

The Best Actor Performances of 2011

There is a staggering level of variety and depth on display in this list of performances from some of the best working actors today. I loved the sheer range we saw this year - the willingness to push audience expectations or the willingness to dig deeper and offer new shades, new kinds of performances that we hadn’t seen before. Great actors like George Clooneyz and Brad Pitt didn’t exactly break away from their audience expectations in 2011, but rather used them to give arguably the most complex performances of their career. There were also a number of extremely strong lead actor performances this year that were clearly the work of men inspired by some of our best directors, whether it was Banderas returning to Almodovar, Wilson finally returning from comedy hell to work with Woody, Damon vibing with Crowe, Craig proving perfect casting for Fincher, or DiCaprio proving skeptics wrong for Eastwood. But they were all runner-ups. Like I said, it was an amazing year.

Before we get to the best of the best, a wide array of notable runner-ups deserve mention, including Antonio Banderasz in “The Skin I Live In,” Bradley Cooperz in “Limitless,” Brendan Gleesonz in “The Guard,” Christoph Waltzz in “Carnage,” Clive Owenz in “Trust,” Daniel Craigz in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Hunter McCracken in “The Tree of Life,” J.K. Simmons in “The Music Never Stopped,” Jake Gyllenhaalz in “Source Code,” Joel Courteney in “Super 8,” Joel Edgertonz in “Warrior,” Lambert Wilsonz in “Of Gods and Men,” Leonardo DiCaprio in “J. Edgar,” Matt Damonz in “We Bought a Zoo,” Mel Gibsonz in “The Beaver,” Michael Fassbenderz in “Jane Eyre” & “X-Men: First Class,” Owen Wilsonz in “Midnight in Paris,” Paul Giamattiz in “Win Win,” Peter Mullanz in “Tyrannosaur,” Ryan Goslingz in “The Ides of March,” and Woody Harrelsonz in “Rampart.”

Runner-Ups (#6-10; in alphabetical order): Demian Bichir in “A Better Life”; Jean Dujardinz in “The Artist”; Joseph Gordon-Levittz in “50/50”; Ryan Gosling in “Drive”; and Tom Hardyz in “Warrior.”

MY FIVE NOMINEES FOR BEST LEAD ACTOR:

George Clooney as Matt Kingz in “The Descendants”

Can cynical critics stop pretending that Mr. Clooney isn’t one of our best working actors? There seems to be a bias against people who started on TV, which makes their mountain path to critical recognition much harder to climb and, when I tell people that the star of “Michael Claytonz,” “Syriana,” “Solaris,” and “The American” would easily make my list of today’s best actors, I often get a raised eyebrow. There’s also a sense that dashing leading men never get the recognition they deserve, and Clooney certainly reminds me of Cary Grant in that regard, an actor often seen as a marquee topper but not the versatile genius that he actually was. With all that in mind, I think this may be Clooney’s best work to date. Emotionally deep but not clichéd, realistic at every turn, Clooney perfectly sells Matt King as someone in the moment. You can see him listening, thinking, and responding in ways that actors often don’t do. He’s always completely in the moment. He may win another Oscar for this one and, if he does, I won’t be upset.

Gary Oldmanz as George Smiley in “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy”

One of our best living actors has been undeniably typecast in the last few years due to his larger-than-life personality and so it makes it somewhat more special that the performance he considers the best of his career is so understated and refined. George Smiley is the kind of character that an actor dreams of playing – but that doesn’t necessarily mean that anyone but Oldman could have delivered. Perhaps the greatest actor to never have been nominated for an Oscar takes the subtle road with Smiley, perfectly portraying a man dedicated to his country and his craft. Oldman’s work here is so subdued that people might mistake it for less than his typical output. It’s not until the days and weeks after, when you can’t shake Oldman’s face or the saga of George Smiley, that one realizes that the small decisions he made here lasted long beyond the film’s running time.

Brad Pittz as Billy Beanez in “Moneyball”

Speaking of internal monologue, few actors were required to play one as completely as Pitt in “Moneyball,” his dream project realized. I joked with Jonah Hillz that there probably wasn’t another script in 2011 that featured as many pages with shots describing different ways to present a protagonist thinking. The daring thing about Bennett Miller’sz film (and Pitt deserves credit for guiding and supporting the decision as a producer as well) is the director’s refusal to externalize what is basically a very cerebral film. So many actors and directors would have given Billy Beane a few monologues about what he was thinking as he took massive risks to make his team competitive, but Brad Pitt was willing to do what so many other actors refuse to do — play a complex, realistic man through subtle decisions instead of broad dialogue. This character is full, well-rounded, and completely believable, not just another notch in Pitt’s resume, but arguably the best performance of his career.

Michael Shannonz as Curtis in “Take Shelter”

Michael Shannon

Michael Shannon playing another crazy guy. Surprise, surprise. Seriously, I kind of avoided the buzz for Shannon’s work in this Sundance darling because it felt too familiar. We’ve seen this unusual actor play slightly demented before. But never like this. In, what is actually, one of Shannon’s most restrained performances to date, the actor easily delivers the best work of his career, playing the humanity instead of the potential insanity. There’s a delicate balance in this character as he’s keenly aware that he’s facing only two awful possibilities in his life — either the visions he’s been having are prophetic and the world will soon end or he’s just going crazy. Shannon plays the sadness of a family man caught in a situation that has no easy conclusion and gives one of the most memorable performances of 2011, second only to…

THE WINNER

Michael Fassbender as Brandon in “Shame”

Fearless. It’s the word I keep thinking of it when it comes to Fassbender’s work in “Shame.” Totally f**king fearless. And it’s not just the well-publicized nudity, although baring yourself so completely certainly takes a level of confidence that would have killed this project in pre-production for most actors. It’s the emotional rawness of Fassbender’s work that makes it the best of the year, without question. Brandon is a complex guy. He’s not the traditional sex addict as the role is often portrayed. There are no clammy hands or tattered raincoats. He not only passes at work, but he’s the guy at the bar that most women want to go home with. How do you play that? How do you play the confident addict when you don’t have the tricks of addiction, the broad behavior on which to fall back? Fassbender is devastating in the third act collapse of this character, but he’s almost more remarkable before that, as just an average guy with a serious addiction but one that has yet to really derail him from anything he’s desired. In a year filled with stunningly subtle performances, it’s the minor beats and the small choices that this incredible actor made during the production of “Shame” that earned him the title of Best Actor of 2011. As noted, this category is insanely crowded this year. If the Academy follows suit with SAG and doesn’t recognize this performance, you can probably predict what will top my Oscar Snubs piece in a few weeks’ time.

32nd London Critics' Circle Film Awards nominations announced
Awards to be presented Thursday, 19th January, at BFI Southbank

Rich Cline

Published: 20/12/2011

London, Tuesday 20 December: The London Critics’ Circle is delighted to announce the nominations today for its 32nd annual Film Awards in partnership with Virgin Atlantic.



Voted for by over 120 UK film critics, broadcasters and writers, the nominations are lead by TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY and DRIVE, which both receive 6 nominations each. British film TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY directed by Tomas Alfredson is nominated for Film of the Year, British Film of the Year, Screenwriter of the Year, Actor of the Year, British Actor of the Year and The Sky 3D Award for Technical Achievement, whilst DRIVE – directed by fellow Scandinavian Nicolas Winding Refn - is nominated for Film of the Year, Director of the Year, Actor of the Year, Supporting Actor of the Year, The Moët & Chandon Award for British Actress of the Year and The Sky 3D Award for Technical Achievement.



Asghar Farhadi’s Golden Bear (Berlin) winner A SEPARATION and Lynne Ramsay’s WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN have received 5 nominations each whilst Michel Hazanavicius’ THE ARTIST and Steve McQueen’s SHAME have received 4 apiece.



Chairman of the London Critics’ Circle, Jason Solomons, commented:

"I am proud of the breadth, intelligence and style of the choices the London critics have made, honouring the richness of world cinema and the fresh, cool takes on classic movie genres seen in films such as TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, DRIVE and THE ARTIST. This is the surely classiest set of nominations around this year, with truly superb work reflected in the directing and foreign language categories.”


"I'm also thrilled that a London movie such as TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY and the magnetism of its central performance by London icon Gary Oldman has been rightfully recognised with so many nominations across different categories, a reminder of its all-round qualities as a British and international film. It's also gratifying that our new categories of documentary and technical awards have been able to increase our critical appreciation for the outstanding work we've witnessed in this vintage year for quality cinema."



The London Critics' Circle Film Awards in partnership with Virgin Atlantic will reveal its full list of annual award winners at the glittering ceremony on Thursday 19 January at BFI Southbank. The 32nd annual edition of the London Critics' Circle Film Awards will again be in aid of their charity partner, the BFI, to help with the preservation and restoration of British film, in particular Hitchcock's nine silent features, as part of the BFI's landmark 'Rescue the Hitchcock 9’ campaign.

Awards 2012: If We Chose the Winners

Matt Patches
Hollywood.com Staff

Every year, a slew of ambiguous critics groups and Hollywood types vote to award various actors, actresses, directors and producers accolades for a job well done. The SAG Awards, the Golden Globes, the Academy Awards�and those are just the top dogs, with seemingly everyone and anyone throwing in their two cents on who was the year's best of the best.

So why not us? Having seen most of the good, the bad and the ugly from 2011, we feel sufficiently qualified to give nods of our own. Prepare the drum roll! There's a drum roll, right?

Here are our picks for the standouts of the year, filling in all the usual categories you might find at an awards show. Top performances, directors, screenplays, scores and more. Then, later this week, we'll unleash our Top Films of 2011 (so keep your eyes peeled)!

Best Actor: Michael Fassbender, Shame

The early buzz was all about George Clooney in The Descendants, but at the end of the day, it was Michael Fassbender, who dominated Hollywood with four roles this year (Jane Eyre, X-Men: First Class, A Dangerous Method and Shame) who takes our top honors. In Shame, Fassbender wows with a Jekyl/Hyde-type role, a delicate balance between restrained New York everyman and the carnal beast that he attempts to control. The man doesn't mind baring all for his turn as a sex addict and the result is terrifying and powerful.

Runners-Up: Brad Pitt, Moneyball, Michael Shannon, Take Shelter, Steve Coogan, The Trip

Best Actress: Charlize Theron, Young Adult

Great female performances aren't uncommon, but it's a rarity to see Hollywood give an actress the chance to tackle someone so despicable, yet, at the same time, undeniably sympathetic. Charlize Theron riffs on her own good looks to play former-prom-queen-turned-Young-Adult-Fiction-writer Mavis, who travels back to her small hometown to hopes of winning back her ex-boyfriend. Her characterization is impeccable�Mavis is a familiar type of monster, and as Theron proves, one that may have a more complex dimension then we see on the surface.

Runners-Up: Viola Davis, The Help, Kirsten Dunst, Melancholia, Michelle Williams, My Week with Marilyn

Best Supporting Actor: Bobby Cannavale, Win Win

Win Win may have slipped under the radar back in March, but you owe it to yourself to check out the movie�at least for one of the funniest, sharpest performances of the year. The under-appreciated character actor Bobby Cannavale plays Paul Giammati's best friend in the family dramedy, a loud-mouthed bird on his shoulder always ready to throw in his two sense. Whereas most Supporting Actor awards go to performances that showcase one killer scene or a devastating dramatic archetype, Cannavale shows up in Win Win to pepper every scene with laughs and hard knock truths. He doesn't steal every scene. He makes them better.

Runners-Up: Sir Ben Kingsley, Hugo, Brad Pitt, The Tree of Life, Christopher Plummer, Beginners

Best Supporting Actress: Jessica Chastain, Take Shelter

Her co-star Michael Shannon spends the duration of Take Shelter battling mental breakdown and suffering from apocalyptic visions, but Jessica Chastain's even more spectacular, as a wife who must witness her husband's destruction. Chastain is another actress having a amazing year, with The Help, The Debt, Tree of Life, Take Shelter and Coriolanus all dropping in 2011. But it's Take Shelter where she really shines, matching Shannon's intensity with the naturalistic fervor of her farm town surroundings. After a few seconds locked up in a fall out shelter with Chastain, you'll understand why her work is the best of the year.

Runners-Up: Shailene Woodley, The Descendants, Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids, Carey Mulligan, Shame

Best Director: Steve McQueen, Shame

While we've seen directors paint everything from the creation of the universe to the claustrophobic interiors of a Paris train station this year, nothing stood out as much as Steve McQueen's (Hunger) calculated, expressive and nuanced portrait of one man's raw addiction. McQueen works in perfect tandem with Michael Fassbender, ignoring convention and Hollywood rules (the movie has an NC-17 rating) in an effort of capturing truth. McQueen employs long takes as Fassbender jogs New York streets, uncomfortable close ups on familiar subways and uses light to depict a gloomier side of the city. Easily one of the scariest movies of the year, Shame drips with cinema, without McQueen showing off.

Runners-Up: Terrance Malick, The Tree of Life, Martin Scorsese, Hugo, Lynne Ramsay, We Need to Talk About Kevin

Best Animated Film: Rango

We dug deep into Rango for our ""Making the Case"" feature, but the gist of the movie's greatness comes down to his creativity. Bizarre, hilarious and beautiful, Gore Verbinski's imaginative Western is high on an entire century of cinema, but still manages to pack in colorful characters and exciting action for the young ones. The perfect mix.

Runners-Up: The Adventures of Tintin, Arthur Christmas, Happy Feet 2

Head Back for Actors, Actresses, Directors and More!

Best Original Screenplay: Diablo Cody, Young Adult

Diablo Cody struck back against her Juno naysayers with a script that drops the intentionally-cheeky dialogue in favor of a biting lead character and a series of I-can't-believe-this-is-really-happening scenarios. The script is the perfect summation of suburbia, a playground for Cody's characters to run amok. Young Adult feels like a chance and one that pays off brilliantly.

Runners-Up: Will Reiser, 50/50, Abbas Kiarostami, Certified Copy, Andrew Haigh, Weekend

Best Adapted Screenplay: Steven Zaillian & Aaron Sorkin, Moneyball

After last year's The Social Network it should be no surprise that Aaron Sorkin and Schindler's List/Mission: Impossible screenwriter Steven Zaillian were able to mine an emotion out of a story driven by baseball statistics. They're main character Billy Beane (Pitt), strives to leave ""feelings"" at the door, sticking to number crunching and analysis. But through this exploration, the writers discover what a love for baseball is really about, making for a journey that's riveting, heartwarming and a lot of fun.

Runners-Up: Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon & Jim Rash, The Descendants, Christopher Hampton, A Dangerous Method, John Logan, Hugo

Best Documentary: The Arbor

Clio Barnard's staged/documentary hybrid, a look in to the life of playwright Andrea Dunbar, uniquely takes the audio from friend and family interviews and couples it with lip-syncing actors. The result is a harrowing tale, the life of a young woman, her tragic death and the children she left behind to live equally difficult lives. The subject alone is intense and fascinating. With actors ""performing"" those words, it's even more of a punch to the gut. You can currently watch The Arbor on Netflix Instant.

Runners-Up: Page One: Inside the New York Times, Project Nim, How to Die in Oregon

Best Cinematography: Emmanuel Lubezki, The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life jumps from grand depictions of the Big Bang to ten-year-olds running around a 1950's neighborhood to dinosaurs roaming the planet to a butterfly gracefully flying in the sky�and it does so with ease. Director Terrance Malick's poetic cinema experience wouldn't have the emotional impact it does without Emmanuel Lubezki's wondrous cinematography, a flowing picture book of an entire planet's history. Discovery Channel documentaries better step it up in 2012.

Runners-Up: Robert Richardson, Manuel Alberto Claro, Hugo, Melancholia, Eduardo Serra, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

Best Foreign Language Film: The Skin I Live In

With so many movies coming out of every country on the globe, it's hard to settle on one Foreign Language movie in a given year (even Angelina Jolie managed to make a great one), but for top honors it's hard to deny the terrifying adrenaline rush of master Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In. A body horror, a character drama, a disturbing look into today's obsession with beauty, the film is an haunting, operatic experience, and features two of the best performances of the year: Elena Anaya as a kidnapped beauty, and Antonio Banderas, who has never been better.

Runners-Up: Miss Bala, In the Land of Blood and Honey, Poetry

Best Original Score: Howard Shore, Hugo

Considering individual parts, Scorsese's Hugo may fall to the wayside in 2011, but as a whole film, it's perfection. If there's one cog that truly stands out, it's Howard Shore's delightful French soundtrack. Whimsical and rousing, it's the composers best work since The Lord of the Rings and easily the most inventive of the year. A portal to a classic era of cinema.

Runners-Up: Alexandre Desplat, The Tree of Life, Ludovic Bource, The Artist, Alberto Iglesias, The Skin I Live In

Best Original Song: ""Star Spangled Man,"" Captain America: The First Avenger

This category is generally dedicated to animated or kid-centric films, and once again, that's where many of the top tunes of 2011 (The Muppets may have 7 or Cool. But the real winner of the year came out of nowhere: a Marvel comic book movie. ""Star Spangled Man"" was penned by Alan Menken, the showtune wizard behind The Little Mermaid and Newsies. The song's a hilarious interlude in the action�and one that doesn't settle for being a joke. It's not just good, it's toe-tapping good.

Runners-Up: ""Life's a Happy Song,"" The Muppets, ""Coeur Volant,"" Hugo, ""Let Me Take You to Rio,"" Rio

My Week With Marilyn, Tinker Tailor lead BAFTA longlist

6 January, 2012 | By Wendy Mitchell

After the first round of voting, BAFTA has unveiled its longlist for the 2012 Film Awards.

Leading the pack are My Week With Marilyn and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with 16 mentions each, followed by The Iron Lady with 14, and The Artist, Midnight In Paris, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and War Horse with 13 each.

Following are The Help and Hugo with 12 each; Drive, The Ides of March and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2 with 11 each. We Need To Talk About Kevin earned 10.

Palme d’Or winner The Tree of Life by Terence Malick only got one mention on the longlist, in the cinematography category. And David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method was only nominated for costume design.

Notable snubs include Madonna’s W.E., Terrence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea, Stephen Daldry’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Nick Murphy’s The Awakening, James Watkins’ The Woman In Black and Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights for all categories; Vanessa Redgrave not making the longlist for supporting actress for her role in Coriolanus; Cannes best actress winner Kirsten Dunst not being longlisted for Melancholia nor Michelle Yeoh for The Lady; and Las Acacias and Miss Bala not making the cut for foreign-language film.

More low-budget but critically acclaimed films including Weekend and Kill List aren’t on the longlist.

This marks the first year BAFTA has a documentary category, and the five films on that longlist are: George Harrison: Living in the Material World, Life in a Day, Pina, Project Nim, and Senna. Notable omissions from that list include Cave of Forgotten Dreams, TT3D: Closer To The Edge and The Interrupters.

Individuals with multiple mentions on the longlist include George Clooney for both The Descendants and The Ides of March, Ryan Gosling for Drive and The Ides of March, Carey Mulligan for Shame and Drive, and Olivia Colman for Tyrannosaur and The Iron Lady.

BAFTA voters will now cast their second votes by Jan 12. BAFTA nominations are out Jan 17 and the awards ceremony will be held Feb 12.

On Tuesday morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will put an end to months of speculation -- including plenty by me, as reflected in charts posted on this blog every weekend since September -- by announcing its nominees for the 84th Academy Awards. That means that it is now time, for better or worse, for me to man up and lock in my final predictions of what/who those nominees will be.

I urge you to keep in mind that what follows is not necessarily what I feel should happen -- that can be better gleaned from reading my year-end top 10 list -- but rather what I think will happen, based on months of screenings (I’ve seen all of the likely nominees, many multiple times), observations (of critics, guilds, and other awards-bestowers), and conversations (with pundits and voters).

I have historically done quite well when it comes to forecasting Oscar nominations -- for instance, I projected best picture noms for The Reader (2008) and for The Blind Side (2009) when virtually no one else did -- but you have to prove yourself anew each year, and I hope to do just that.

Regardless of how things pan out, thank you for taking the time to read and consider what I have to say, and please consider sharing your own forecasts in the comments section of this post!

‘The Artist’ Leads The Field At The 2012 BAFTA Film Awards
By Fraser McAlpine | Posted on Monday, January 16th, 2012

This year’s BAFTA Film Awards nominations are out, and for once, the biggest film of the year appears to be French, and in black and white…and silent. The Artist is very well represented indeed, being up for awards in the big four categories – Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor AND Best Actress.

Other notable award magnets include Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, We Need To Talk About Kevin, and The Iron Lady, which can boast a Best Actress/Best Supporting Actor nominations double whammy.

And let’s not forget, where BAFTA goes, Oscar often follows. So here’s a rundown of the most notable awards categories (you can compare with EW.com’s own longlist of Academy Awards predictions), with a look at the likelihood that the winner will end up having to find shelf-space for a tall gold man next to the winkyface man.

Best Film

Of the past five winners of the Best Film Academy Award, three have also been BAFTA winners, the exceptions being The Queen in 2007 (the Oscar went to The Departed), and Atonement in 2008 (beating No Country For Old Men). The nominees are:

The Artist
The Descendents
Drive
The Help
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Best Actor

Again, three out of the past five winners have been a direct match, Mickey Rourke’s astonishing work in The Wrester took BAFTA gold over the Academy-preferred Sean Penn in 2009, and Colin Firth getting his BAFTAs in early for A Single Man in 2010. He won both the following year for The King’s Speech. The BAFTA nominations are:

Brad Pitt – Moneyball
Gary Oldman – Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
George Clooney – The Descendents
Jean Dujardin – The Artist
Michael Fassbender – Shame

Best Actress
Here we’re on even safer ground, with four of the past five winners being a direct match. The sole exception being Carey Mulligan, who won the BAFTA for her role in An Education, where Sandra Bullock won the Oscar for The Blind Side.

Bérénice Bejo – The Artist
Meryl Streep – The Iron Lady
Michelle Williams – My Week With Marilyn
Tilda Swinton – We Need To Talk About Kevin
Viola Davis – The Help

Best Supporting Actor

And once again the two academies are in almost total accord, with Geoffrey Rush’s win last year for The King’s Speech being the sole exception over the past five years. Christian Bale won the Oscar for The Fighter.

Christopher Plummer – Beginners
Jim Broadbent – The Iron Lady
Jonah Hill – Moneyball
Kenneth Branagh – My Week With Marilyn
Philip Seymour Hoffman – The Ides of March

Best Supporting Actress

Had Melissa Leo not won the Academy Award last year, and allowed Helena Bonham Carter to sweep in regally and swipe it for her performance as The Queen Mother in The King’s Speech, there would be a clean sweep of accord between our two nations. So close, and yet…

Carey Mulligan – Drive
Jessica Chastain – The Help
Judi Dench – My Week With Marilyn
Melissa McCarthy – Bridesmaids
Octavia Spencer – The Help

Best Director

Here, we’re on shakier ground again, with only three out of five shared winners. Last year, David Fincher won the BAFTA for The Social Network, whereas the Oscar went to Tom Hooper for The King’s Speech. And back in 2007, Paul Greengrass won the BAFTA while Martin Scorsese took the Academy Award.

Michel Hazanavicius – The Artist
Nicolas Winding Refn – Drive
Martin Scorsese – Hugo
Tomas Alfredson – Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Lynne Ramsay – We Need To Talk About Kevin

Elsewhere in the BAFTA nominations sheet, there are a couple of noteworthy categories that have no equal at the Oscars:

Outstanding British Film
My Week With Marilyn
Senna
Shame
Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy
We Need To Talk About Kevin

Outstanding Debut By A British Writer, Director or Producer
Attack The Block – Joe Cornish (Director/Writer)
Black Pond – Will Sharpe (Director/Writer), Tom Kingsley (Director), Sarah Brocklehurst (Producer)
Coriolanus – Ralph Fiennes (Director)
Submarine – Richard Ayoade (Director/Writer)
Tyrannosaur – Paddy Considine (Director), Diarmid Scrimshaw (Producer)

Some critics have already noted that Olivia Colman has been cruelly snubbed for her astonishing performance in Tyrannosaur, either as Best Supporting Actress or even Best Actress. So if you want our tip for a future awards dead cert, it is her.

The full list of nominees is here.

The BAFTA Film Awards will air on BBC America, Sunday, February 12 at 8 pm ET, followed by the second Absolutely Fabulous special at 11 pm ET.

Shame leads Evening Standard film award nominations
Michael Fassbender Fassbender has been tipped for awards success for his role as a sex addict in Shame

Steve McQueen's controversial film Shame and Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur are leading the field for the Evening Standard British Film Awards.

Shame, about sex addiction, is up for four nominations including best film, best actor for Michael Fassbender and best actress for Carey Mulligan.

Fassbender picks up a second best actor nomination for his portrayal of Mr Rochester in Jane Eyre.

Tyrannosaur is also up for four awards, including best film.

The brutal drama lands Considine a best screenplay nomination, while its stars, Peter Mullan and Olivia Coleman, are up for best actor and actress respectively.

Archipelago, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and We Need to Talk About Kevin will also vie for best film.

Also in the running for best actor are Kenneth Branagh for My Week With Marilyn, Brendan Gleeson for The Guard, Tom Hiddleston for Archipelago, and Gary Oldman for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Archipelago's third nomination comes for Joanna Hogg's screenplay.

The family drama stars Hiddleston as a city worker who quits to do voluntary work in Africa.

Also in the best actress category are Samantha Morton for The Messenger, Vanessa Redgrave for Coriolanus, Tilda Swinton for We Need To Talk About Kevin and Rachel Weisz for The Deep Blue Sea.

The Guard, Black Pond and The Inbetweeners will fight it out for the Peter Sellers comedy award.

The Evening Standard British film awards have been presented annually since 1973.

This year's awards will be hosted by actor Stephen Mangan at the London Film Museum on 6 February.

AACTA unveils first round of awards

[Sun 15/01/2012 07:12:25]

By Brendan Swift

The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) has unveiled the first round of its revamped awards at a Sydney luncheon.

Presenters at the event, which was hosted by actor Sigrid Thornton, included actors such as Radha Mitchell, Rebecca Gibney and Susie Porter, as well as directors Bruce Beresford, Fred Schepisi and Adam Elliot.

Australian cinematographer Donald McAlpine ACS ASC picked up the AACTA's highest accolade, the Raymond Longford Award, while filmmaker Ivan Sen received the Byron Kennedy Award, which recognises innovation and the pursuit of excellence.

Sen, whose latest film Toomelah screened at last year's Cannes Film Festival, was chosen for “his unique artistic vision and for showing, by his resourceful multidisciplinary filmmaking, that telling stories on screen is in reach of all who have something consequential to say”.

Meanwhile, production designer Herbert Pinter was awarded the AACTA Award for Outstanding Achievement In Television for his work on Tim Winton’s cloudstreet.

ABC programs dominated the TV awards with Chris Lilley recognised for Angry Boys (Best Performance in a Television Comedy), Laid winning Best Television Comedy Series, and My Place, Series 2 recognised as the Best Children’s Television Series.

Among the Australian feature film award winners were The Eye of the Storm, The Hunter and Snowtown, which each received two craft awards. Meanwhile, Legend Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole was awarded Best Visual Effects.

The highest grossing Australian film at the box office in 2011, Red Dog, was awarded the AFI Members’ Choice Award.

Crowd-pleasing feature documentary Mrs Carey’s Concert led the documentary awards with awards for Best Feature Length Documentary and Best Direction in a Documentary. Other documentary winners included Jandamarra's War, SAS - The Search for Warriors, murundak - songs of freedom, Out of the Ashes, Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure.

The Palace, an Australian/Cypriot co-production, won Best Short Fiction Film and Best Screenplay in a Short Film, while Nullarbor picked up the Best Short Animation award.

Nominees were also announced for the new AACTA International Awards via a live cross to actor Jacki Weaver at the G’Day USA Black Tie Gala in Los Angeles.

The AACTA Awards are run by the Australian Film Institute and replace the AFI Awards, which were first launched in 1958.

The NSW government is spending $1.7 million a year on the AFIs – almost one-third of the $6.26 million in production financing it invested (via Screen NSW) across 41 film and TV projects in 2009-10.

“Today’s awards are the first of our two awards events and highlight the exceptional work of our craftspeople," AFI | AACTA chief executive, Damian Trewhella, said in a statement.

"We encourage all Australians to support our local screen industry by watching the Samsung AACTA Awards ceremony in two weeks’ time to see which films and television productions are awarded our nation’s best.”

The remaining AACTA Awards will be announced at the AACTA Awards ceremony at the Sydney Opera House on January 31, which will be broadcast on the Nine Network.
