New Dunkirk Trailer


Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk about the real life evacuation out of Dunkirk, France during World War II is set to be released on July 21st. July releases rarely get noticed at Oscar time, but Dunkirk’s cinematography might be strong enough to get a nomination. Nolan for Best Director is not out of the question either.

The story is centered around The Algiers Motel Incident, which occurred in Detroit, Michigan on July 25, 1967, during the racially charged 12th Street Riot. In addition, the book that the movie is based on is the most-documented event of police brutality. It involves the death of 3 black males and a brutal beatdown of nine other people: 7 black males and 2 white females. 

Director: Kathryn Bigelow

Stars: John Boyega, Will Poulter, Ben O’Toole, Jason Mitchell

Release Date: August 4, 2017

2017 Best Picture Watch – Call Me by Your Name

dfcf9423f31c730a5becccc8d705c8c3

Call Me by Your Name debuted at this years Sundance film festival. It currently has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 98 Metacritic score. Metacritic has named it the highest rated movie of 2017 so far. With some good publicity and a strong Oscar push, Call Me by Your Name could be strong contender in Best Picture, Screenplay and acting categories. It will need a heavy hitting Oscar publicist behind it.

Summary: It’s the summer of 1983 in northern Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family’s seventeenth century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia. One day Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming, 24-year-old American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of this sensual setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will change their lives forever.

Director:  Luca Guadagnino

Stars: Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet

Festivals: Sundance January 2017

Release Date: November 24, 2017

Trailer: (Not yet available. Clip from film has been released)

AMPAS Announces Rule Changes

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences on Friday announced that documentary series are no longer eligible to compete in the Academy Awards. It has been nicknamed the “O.J. Rule” based on the win of Ezra Edelman’s O.J: Made in America.

Some claimed that O.J should have qualified for an Emmy rather than an Oscar because most people watched it as a five-part series on ESPN. Edelman claims that he intended “O.J.: Made in America” to be one long film. It ran in its entirety at film festivals and briefly in theaters to qualify for an Oscar run. Due to the confusion, the academy has banned “multi-part or limited series”

They also announced that the best animated feature category will now be open to the entire film academy, not just the animation branch. According to the Associated Press, this will make it more difficult for smaller animated films to get noticed over the major studio releases.

The Academy also announced that the nominees will now be decided with a preferential ballot, like best picture voting.

Preferential voting has ruined the best picture race (the least divisive film always wins) and now I am afraid it will change the kind of films that get nominated. 

Official rules announcement here. 

MTV Movie & TV Award Nominations

mtv-movie-awards.jpg

The MTV Movie Awards have added television shows to their yearly awards show and renamed The MTV Movie & TV Awards. The show airs on May 7th hosted by Adam Devine.

In addition, MTV is introducing two new and timely categories: Best American Story, awarded to the show or film that showcases America at its best – open and diverse, as well as Best Fight Against the System (formerly Best Fight) awarded to the film or show whose characters best exemplify fighting against a system that tries to keep them down. The network has also replaced the former Best Actor and Best Actress categories with non-gendered Best Actor in a Movie and Best Actor in a Show. Two additional categories will be revealed closer to the show.

MTV doesn’t follow the calendar year. They go with a March to March qualification period. This gets the more recent movies and TV shows nominated.
