Beck – “Tarantula” (Feat. Feist) (Colourbox Cover)

Yesterday, when the Oscar nominations came out, Roma emerged as an immediate heavyweight and a probable frontrunner. Alfonso Cuarón's movie, which is both a technical marvel and a tremendously moving personal story, was nominated for 10 awards.

Netflix in Talks to Join the MPAA

On the heels of Netflix‘s historic first Best Picture nomination at the Oscars, the streaming giant may be taking big steps to becoming a major player in the movie business. Netflix may join the Motion Picture Association of America, the Hollywood body responsible for the film rating system as well as copyright protection. All six major studios in Hollywood are currently represented at this trade association, and Netflix joining MPAA would make it the first streaming service to make that leap. ...

This year’s Oscar nominations indicate what has changed in Hollywood, and what hasn’t

Did the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences solve any of its numerous problems with Tuesday’s announcement of its 91st Oscar nominees? Yes, in some ways; maybe or maybe not, in others. Foremost this year, the Best Picture (voted on by all academy members) and different branch (selected by voters from their particular job categories) nominees indicate that recent efforts to diversify and broaden the group have had their strongest impact on the Oscar field yet. The Mexican art film “Roma” ...

More Female Directors Were Worthy of a Best Director Nod Than Ever, But Got Shut Out of the Oscars

You can count on one hand the number of female directors who have been nominated for a Best Director Oscar in the award’s 90-year history. You can count on one finger the number of female directors who have won the Best Director prize. But despite their meager showing at awards ceremonies, female directors are thriving in the independent and film festival circuit, with films like Lynne Ramsay‘s lean thriller You Were Never Really Here winning the Cannes screenplay prize or Debra Granik‘s quietl...

AMC Theatres and Regal Cinemas Won’t Play ‘Roma’ in Their Best Picture Showcases

Even though Roma ended up with a total of 10 Oscar nominations this morning, including Best Picture, that’s not a good enough reason for AMC Theatres and Regal Cinemas to pack away their grudge with Netflix. Every year, the two movie theater chains host a showcase of all the Best Picture nominees, but since Alfonso Cuarón‘s critically acclaimed Roma is a Netflix movie that didn’t stick to the traditional theatrical release plans, they won’t include the film in their line-up.

The Biggest 2019 Oscars Snubs and Surprises

Look, we’re the first to admit that the entire concept of an “Oscar snub” is a little bit silly. It’s not like everyone in the Academy gets together and secretly plots to teach a filmmaker or actor a lesson by refusing to nominate them for a golden statuette. That’s simply not how it works on any level. And yet, it can’t help but feel deliberate and personal because we’re dealing with an award that can make or break careers. When someone who was supposed to get nominated gets left out, it feels...
