Golden Globes Go Heavy on Adaptation Nominations in TV but Not Film

Golden Globes Go Heavy on Adaptation Nominations in TV but Not Film
In a world of 500 scripted television series, one way creators are vying for the very limited attention of the audience — and to attract big-name talent — is by adapting already well-known works. Rather than having to start from the ground up when it comes to building the world, creating its characters and hooking viewers, adaptations come with a lot of the work already done. And with less risk, the rewards that are reaped automatically look that much bigger.

“It’s a massive draw because you have so much more information than you do when you just have a pilot script or a couple of episodes or even a full season. With the book, the format is so totally different [and] you have the ability to describe and develop and have so much character backstory, so it’s rife with things to help you bring these characters to life and tell the story really thoroughly,” says [link=nm

Howards End review: No rollicking finale – just wit and humanity

Instead of dwelling on drama, this adaptation focuses on ideas and people, and that is what makes it so bold

It’s the awkward morning after the day before at Howards End (BBC One). Actually, at Oniton in Shropshire – it’s hard to keep up with the Wilcox’s property portfolio, I know. Oniton is in “the wrong part of Shropshire” it turns out, mainly because of a lack of game; it looks pretty nice to me, pheasants or not.

We’re there for silly Evie Wilcox’s wedding, remember? And for our three families – Wilcoxes, Schlegels and Basts – to collide, dramatically and drastically. And for Henry Wilcox’s dirty secret past, with Jacky in Cyprus, to catch up with him, for which he has told Margaret she is released from their engagement. Now the two of them are having breakfast together, awkwardly.

92 Days til Oscar. Some Living Trivia For Ya!

Did you know the earliest Oscar year which boasts 20 acting nominees who are still with us is 1992? It's the 25th anniversary of that year and that's the furthest back in time you can go from which all the acting nominees are still walking this earth. With the very noticeable exception of long retired Gene Hackman (no one has been able to convince him to come back to the movies -- and directors have tried!) most of them are still working, too. The lesson is simple: cherish your favorite actors while they're with us because no one lasts forever... except through their art!

The nominees that year were:

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Could Land (at Least) Seven Oscar Nominations: Here’s Why

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Could Land (at Least) Seven Oscar Nominations: Here’s Why
Call Me by Your Name” opened Thanksgiving weekend with stellar reviews and the best limited release numbers of 2017. Sony Pictures Classics acquired the elegiac romantic drama in 2016, and with a finished movie by summer’s end, screened it for Sundance programmers who immediately wanted the film in its lineup.

Now, “Call Me by Your Name” has become a consensus favorite among critics and audiences. It’s simple yet sophisticated, an escapist summer fantasy that feels authentic, and a lovely romance between 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and his professor father’s 24-year-old grad student Oliver (Armie Hammer). And it’s that rare four-quadrant specialty hit: embraced by straights and gays, women and men, young and old.

As classics scholars, Professor Perlman (Michael Stuhlbarg) and Oliver explore the eroticism of Greek statues and fine art; Perlman admires the Grecian ideal of love between two men; he wishes he had experienced what Elio and Oliver share that summer.

Blue Planet II episodes drowned out by music | Letters

Eleanor Davison and Pat Brody are annoyed by the ‘intrusive’ music on David Attenborough’s new series, while George Pearce found the ‘pointless’ music score on the BBC’s adaptation of Howards End equally galling

I couldn’t agree more with Sam Wollaston (Last Night’s TV, G2, 13 November) about the intrusive background music in Blue Planet II. It is overbearing, annoying and insulting, as he says, though of course the photography is amazing. The next programme I had been looking forward to was Howards End. That was worse – conversation was often impossible to follow because of the intrusive, often strident, music and background street noises.

Eleanor Davison

Esher, Surrey

Howards End “sober” (This sober Howards End is a timely remake, 13 November)? I found it unwatchable because of the cacophonous, pointless, unsuitable music score, composed virtually throughout, even over dialogue. Plinky-plonky piano, overbearing string quartet (shrill violin). Even my deaf wife complained.

While many international productions do not achieve great popularity in the Us, the British television industry has had several shows break through.

The Furniture: 25 Years Trapped in Castle Dracula

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula turns 25 years old today. It is, appropriately, not dead. Not that a film can die, exactly, but this one has held onto its toothy vigor with particular success. Even the ridiculous way Keanu pronounces “Bewdapest” still charms. Eiko Ishioka’s Oscar-winning costumes seem simultaneously ancient and way ahead of their time. The same goes for the Oscar-winning makeup, which transforms Gary Oldman across centuries with bewildering commitment. The visual effects, which went unnominated, remain thrilling, a dizzying phantasmagoria of cinematic shadow-puppetry.

But I’m here to rave about the only nominated category that the film didn’t win. Production designer Thomas E. Sanders and art director Garrett Lewis were nominated, but they lost to Howards End. Hard to argue with that, of course.

Howards End review – timely, careful remake explores class and race

Question at the core of Em Forster’s work of who will inherit England has perhaps never been as relevant since he first posed it

Time is a funny thing. To watch the most famous film version of Em Forster’s Howards End now is to watch the 1910 novel overlaid with another layer of history. Merchant Ivory’s rendition came out in 1992 and cemented the pair’s reputation – born in 1985 with their adaptation of Forster’s A Room With a View – as the purveyor of sumptuous Edwardian goods for the contemporary masses.

To watch it now is to be almost overwhelmed by the branding. Every scene is limned in golden sunlight, every costume ripples and rustles to perfection, hair is huge, vowels are rounded and wherever you turn either Helena Bonham-Carter or Vanessa Redgrave are Bonham-Cartering or Redgraving to the fullest limits of the law.

Hayley Atwell: driven and dangerous new queen of period drama

As Agent Carter she was a muse to superheroes. Directors praise the professional example she sets. Now she is ascending into the period drama stratosphere in the new TV adaptation of Howards End

It was Hayley Atwell who, four years ago, predicted that her 30s and 40s would not be the years when she started worrying about roles drying up, but rather the decades in which she would thrive as an actor. “I’m meant to be an older actor rather than a teen or a 20s starlet,” she said. She is now 35. “I didn’t feel comfortable with the pursuit of that: I wanted to know who I was as a human being first.”

After years working in classy and well-received dramas – she is also well-known to Marvel fans as secret agent Peggy Carter in the Captain America films and the Agent Carter TV spin-off – Atwell is about to gain a broader audience.

Forster’s “Howard’s End.” The book has already been adapted in the beloved 1992 Merchant/Ivory jam, but a series allows audiences to go a bit deeper with the characters.
