Film News: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Tops Chicago Film Critics Association 2017 Best Film Noms

Chicago – The eclectic coming-of-age love story, “Call Me By Your Name” topped the nominations list with eight for the 2017 Chicago Film Critics Association (Cfca) Film Awards, to be announced on Wednesday, December 13th. Director Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of Andre Aciman’s novel garnered nods for Best Picture, Guadagnino for Best Director, and acting noms for Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Timothee Chalamet.

The rest of the field for Best Picture has a variety of genres and themes. Christopher Nolan’s epic “Dunkirk” shares the stage with Greta Gerwig’s intent autobiographical “Lady Bird,” Guillermo Del Toro’s magical “The Shape of Water” and the strange-but-heralded “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The symbolic horror of “Get Out” got first time director Jordan Peele a nomination (joining first timer Greta Gerwig), the late Harry Dean Stanton was recognized for Best Actor in “Lucky,” and Willem Dafoe got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for “The Florida Project.

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes
Nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards are in as the 2017-2018 film awards season adds yet another notch to its belt. There were snubs, there were surprises, but nothing about Monday morning’s announcement would appear to have significantly altered the course of the circuit. Then again, nothing ever really does; these are just the opinions of a few dozen international journalists who happen to have their own highly rated, liquored-up, televised awards ceremony. Let’s dive in and take a look at what all of it actually means …

Star power

The HFPA has long been noted for its love affair with the stars. This year the group found ways to ensure that people like Angelina Jolie (“First They Killed My Father”), Steve Carell (“Battle of the Sexes”), Tom Hanks (“The Post”), Denzel Washington (“Roman J. Israel, Esq.”), Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman”), Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound”), and even Mariah Carey and Nick Jonas (songs

Chicago Film Critics Association champion Call Me By Your Name with 2017 award nominations

Critical darlings and awards favorites Call Me By Your Name and The Shape of Water proved to be heavy hitters within the Chicago Film Critics Association (of which yours truly is a fresh, honorary member). The former received eight nominations while the latter received seven. Meanwhile, in third place was a three-way tie between Lady Bird, Dunkirk, and Phantom Thread, each with six nominations apiece.

There were also some surprises in store, as Raw (an artistically disturbing French cannibal horror feature seemingly forgotten about during this awards season, and disappointingly so as it’s one of the most overlooked and flat-out best films of the year) managed to secure nominations in both Best Foreign Language Film and Most Promising Filmmaker (a conversation Julia Ducournau definitely deserves to be in alongside popular hopefuls Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele). Beloved character actor Harry Dean Stanton (most of you probably remember him as

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Meets ‘Monsters University’ in Hilarious Trailer — Watch
Later, Sully. Now that “Call Me by Your Name” has emerged as an awards-season favorite and bonafide art-house hit, two things are certain: hot takes and memes. “We Are Bears” writer Mikey Heller has gifted us with the latter, recutting the “Call Me by Your Name” trailer using clips from “Monsters University.” Why, you ask? No, reader — why not?

Like most of these exercises, this one cleverly capitalizes on the two films’ superficial plot similarities — Luca Guadagnino’s acclaimed drama deals with academia, as does Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.” sequel; too, both involve unexpected friendships. Only the former delves into romance, of course, which is where this gets truly inventive.

‘Call Me By Your Name’ Director & Cast Talk The Organic Process Of Adapting A Celebrated Novel
As Call Me By Your Name becomes a juggernaut during awards season raking in accolades from early award ceremonies and critics associations, director Luca Guadagnino and actors Timothee Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Armie Hammer took some time out to talk to the audience at an Awardsline screening last week about making the sunkissed, Italy-based film about first love as natural as possible.

Golden Globes 2018 Film Predictions: IndieWire’s Anne Thompson Makes Bold Picks

Golden Globes 2018 Film Predictions: IndieWire’s Anne Thompson Makes Bold Picks
It’s not easy to parse the idiosyncratic minds of the Hollywood Foreign Press, a motley crew of 90 veteran entertainment media who chum up with publicists and junketing stars throughout the year as they report on movies and TV for their outlets in 55 countries. Many of these folks have been covering the usual suspects for so long, they feel like friends.

And that’s one reason why they make such different choices from other critics’ groups. The relatively senior HFPA’s taste runs the gamut from sophisticated (“Moonlight”) to mainstream (“The Martian”). They do like celebrities to come to the glitzy Golden Globes Awards show on January 7 (Daniel Day-Lewis, Margot Robbie, Jessica Chastain, Matt Damon, and Jennifer Lawrence come to mind), which is by far the most fun party night of the year in Hollywood. So that’s another factor.

Golden Globe 2017 Predictions: What Films Will Score Nominations?

Golden Globe 2017 Predictions: What Films Will Score Nominations?
The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. will reveal nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards on Monday. The 90-ish-member organization of international journalists makes a big splash every year with its boozed-up, televised ceremony that of late has a shot at making a real impact on the Oscar race, given that it airs in the thick of Academy voting. (Meryl Streep no doubt gained a few votes after her rousing anti-Trump remarks on last year’s telecast.)

This year the group is in a position to help cull the list of contenders further, after the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. once again found a way to recognize pretty much everything in contention. That said, bear in mind that this is a tight-knit group of press members whose picks are not necessarily indicative of the tastes of a nearly 8,000-person Academy of film professionals.

Case in point, last year’s big winner: “La La Land” walked away with a

Michael Stuhlbarg on His 3 Oscar Contenders This Year: ‘You Do What You Can’

Michael Stuhlbarg on His 3 Oscar Contenders This Year: ‘You Do What You Can’
A version of this story about Michael Stuhlbarg first appeared in the Actors/Directors/Screenwriters issue of TheWrap’s Oscar magazine. Michael Stuhlbarg is having one of Those Years. You know, a year in which it suddenly seems as if an actor is in every movie, so a trip to the multiplex can become an impromptu Stuhlbarg Film Festival. The veteran character actor could well end up in three of this year’s Best Picture nominees: Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” in which he has a small role as New York Times editor Abe Rosenthal; Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,

Luca Guadagnino and Michael Stuhlbarg on the Honesty of ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ Luis Buñuel, and Sequel Ideas

Luca Guadagnino’s playful sensuality extends beyond his desire for actors. The director of arthouse hits I Am Love, A Bigger Splash and now Call Me By Your Name lavishes focus on anyone who has his attention. Michael Stuhlbarg, co-star of Guadagnino’s new film, channels his attention through lugubrious, monastic-like focus. When I talked with both the former dances with his id for all to see and the latter negotiates with his ego before saying a word. Put them together and you get a snapshot of Call Me By Your Name’s sexual ethos: muted sensuality, or as the director put it, “We were free to show everything and we decided not to. And in a way it was a very liberating experience.”

Goodwill for Call Me By Your Name has already propelled the film to nearly $1 million and that’s from just four screens in New York and Los Angeles thus far.

Critics’ Choice Awards: Wonder Woman And Logan Nominated For Best Action Movie

Guillermo del Toro’s wondrous Cold War fairytale The Shape of Water may have dominated this morning’s Critics’ Choice Awards nominations (14!), but the Broadcast Film Critics Association still showed some love to two of 2017’s superhero gems: Logan and Wonder Woman.

Both were named alongside Thor: Ragnarok in the category of Best Action Movie, while Chris McKay’s (Nightwing) Lego Batman Movie scored a nomination for Best Animated feature. Unsurprisingly, Ragnarok and Wonder Woman made the cut for Best Visual Effects – Chris Hemsworth even got a nod for Best Actor in a Comedy – but perhaps most exciting of all, Dafne Keen (X-23) and Patrick Stewart received nominations for their powerful performances in Logan.

The latter is up against Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project), Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name), Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water), Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and Michael Stuhlbarg (Call Me by Your Name

“The Post” is another rousing outing from Steven Spielberg

The embargo has finally lifted, ladies and gentlemen! We can at long last discuss The Post, the new Steven Spielberg film, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep. Yes, this super fast tracked project is not only complete, but has been screening pretty consistently for critics, guild members, and the Academy itself. The National Board of Review fell in love with it, and plenty of other voters are about to. We’re a month or so away from release still, but the buzz is building in a big way. Once again, Spielberg has delivered the goods. No one in the industry makes it look as easy as he does. He truly is a master at work. To begin, this is what IMDb regales us with, in terms of plot: “A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join

Movie Review – The Post (2017)

The Post, 2017.

Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Starring Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Tracy Letts, Bradley Whitford, Bruce Greenwood, Matthew Rhys, Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, Jesse Plemons, David Cross, Zach Woods, Pat Healy, John Rue, Justin Swain, Deborah Green, Phillip Casnoff, Jessie Mueller, and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Synopsis:

A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government. Inspired by true events.

Prior to a New York Times exposé detailing Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s incompetence and mishandling of the Vietnam War, he tells owner of the Washington Post and trusting friend Katharine Graham (the classy and talented Meryl Streep gunning for her 21st Oscar nomination) that she is going to read some unflattering things about him tomorrow in the papers. Now, it’s obviously not a shocking reveal of numerous sexual assault allegations,

Film Review: Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’

Film Review: Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’
Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” throttles along in a pleasurably bustling, down-to-the-timely-minute way. It’s a heady, jam-packed docudrama that, with confidence and great filmmaking verve (though not what you’d call an excess of nuance), tells a vital American story of history, journalism, politics, and the way those things came together over a couple of fateful weeks in the summer of 1971. That’s when The New York Times, followed by The Washington Post, published extensive excerpts from the Pentagon Papers: the top-secret government history of the Vietnam War that revealed, for the first time, the lies told to the American people about U.S. involvement in Indochina dating back to 1945. (Most destructive lie: the hiding of the fact that U.S. leaders knew the war was a losing battle.)

The heart of the movie is set at the Post, where the paper’s executive editor, Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), with his urbane rasp, aristocrat-in-shirt-sleeves mystique

New international trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Shape of Water’

Here’s the new international trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s next film, The Shape of Water, which looks remarkably like a cross between Hellboy’s Abe Sapien and The Creature From the Black Lagoon (a film incidentally del Toro expressed an interest in remaking). The Shape of Water stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer, Nick Searcy and Doug Jones.

From master storyteller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape of Water – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

The Shape of Water is released in cinemas across the UK on February 14th 2018.
