The 2018 Foreign Language Oscar Shortlist: 9 Films, Many Snubs and Surprises

Whittling down this year’s record 92 foreign-language Oscar submissions to a shortlist of nine was a challenge for the Academy which, under the leadership of new president John Bailey, instituted voting changes for the disparate group of Academy volunteers commandeered by foreign-language committee chair Mark Johnson.

Eight of the films were well-known from festival play and have been racking up awards, most notably European Film Awards winner “The Square.” Two lesser-known films that were not widely predicted made the cut, “Félicité” from Senegal and “The Wound” from South Africa. Steady as they go for Sony Pictures Classics and Magnolia Pictures, which lead the field with three and two films, respectively.

The nine films are listed alphabetically below.

“A Fantastic Woman” (Chile, Sony Pictures Classics)

Berlin debuted Sebastián Lelio’s transgender drama, which won Best Screenplay and played well at Telluride and Toronto.

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

SAG Awards Will Be Presented Entirely by Women, Kristen Bell to Host

First-ever SAG Awards host Kristen Bell in “The Good Place”: NBC/Justin Lubin

The Screen Actors Guild will stand with women at its 24th annual awards ceremony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, women will present each statuette at the January 21 event. This gesture is SAG’s way of supporting women in the wake of the myriad sexual harassment and assault stories that have come out of Hollywood in the past couple months. “The Good Place’s” Kristen Bell will also serve as the SAG Awards’ first-ever host.

“Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman,” SAG Awards Ep Kathy Connell explained. “This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”

Of course, men will not be entirely absent from the ceremony. The male SAG winners will take the stage to accept their honors and it

Ausiello: Well, that and a premiere date, am I right?

‘Mad To Be Normal’ Trailer: David Tennant & Elisabeth Moss Trip Out

This weekend on Netflix, Errol Morris‘ “Wormwood“ will unspool a pretty crazy true story that’s set against the backdrop of the United States’ MKUltra program. The secret operation saw the government, conduct secret experiments involving LSD, among other things. The potential of the drug was still being explored at that time, and across the pond, one doctor was also seeing how it could be used to help his patients.

Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations: ‘Three Billboards’ Dominates, ‘The Post’ Shut Out

Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations: ‘Three Billboards’ Dominates, ‘The Post’ Shut Out
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Martin McDonagh’s blood-soaked revenge thriller, dominated the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations on Wednesday, picking up a leading four nods. The film was recognized for its ensemble acting, while the performances of stars Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson were all singled out. “Lady Bird,” Greta Gerwig’s tender coming-of-age comedy, was close behind with three nods, including nominations for best ensemble, and a best actress and best supporting actress nomination for Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf, respectively.

Both of those films have been major forces in this fall’s awards race. However, Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” thought to be a contender, was shut out, with stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks failing to make the cut.

In addition to “Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards,” the other films recognized for their ensemble were “The Big Sick,” “Get Out,” and “Mudbound.” “The Shape of Water,” Guillermo del Toro’s monster

SAG Awards 2018 Full TV Nominations List: Netflix Dominates, While HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Leads

SAG Awards 2018 Full TV Nominations List: Netflix Dominates, While HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Leads
Netflix binged on Screen Actors Guild Awards last year, winning four of the eight major TV awards — including both drama and comedy ensemble prizes (for “The Crown” and “Orange is the New Black”) — and it appears destined to repeat in 2018. The streaming service dominated the 24th Annual SAG Awards nominations roster on Wednesday morning, cleaning up with 19 nods overall — ahead of second-place HBO (12).

Netflix’s nominees were spread out among some of its most critically acclaimed series, including “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” on the drama side, and “Glow” and “Orange is the New Black” in comedy. The streamer also landed multiple nods with “Ozark” and “Grace and Frankie,” while SAG favorite Robin Wright, now the sole star of “House of Cards,” scored a nod.

Also in the hunt: Hulu, which entered the SAG derby with “The Handmaid’s Tale.” But just like the Golden Globe nominations earlier this week,

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Will Tackle Race Issues As It Tells New Stories Beyond The Book

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Will Tackle Race Issues As It Tells New Stories Beyond The Book
“The Handmaid’s Tale” showrunner Bruce Miller knows the show triggered “thousands of discussions” in its inaugural run — and as production continues on Season 2, Miller said he and his team have been paying attention to those conversations.

One major issue for the Emmy-winning Hulu series — nominated Monday for three Golden Globes — was that how to approach racial issues. While Margaret Atwood’s original novel took place in an all-white world (due to the ethnic purging orchestrated by the nightmare nation of Gilead), Miller and Atwood ended up making the decision to incorporate a diverse cast and focus on the treatment of women within this society.

“There was discussion and praise and criticism for how we integrated or dealt with race in Gilead,” he said. “It brought up a lot of questions that just didn’t come up in the stories in Season 1, that we were able to put it in

Black List 2017 Features Record Number of Scripts By and About Women

Christy Hall’s “Daddio” made the list: Hall’s official site

If the 2017 Black List is any indication — and hopefully it is — we’re going to see more films written by women going into production soon. And more female-led stories, too. Compiled by tallying the votes of over 275 film executives, the famous list recognizes the best film scripts that haven’t begun principal photography during this year. “The big takeaway from this year’s list is that women are more present on the list then ever, both in the stories that are being told and the screenwriters who are telling them,” TheWrap writes.

More specifically, 25 of the 76 works featured this year are written or co-written by women, and 34 scripts center on female protagonists. According to the source, that’s “a record for both categories.”

Each Hollywood exec who participated in the Black List contributed the names of up to 10 favorite scripts.

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

75th Golden Globe Nominations – In An Industry Of Snubs It’s Hard To Stand Out

Award season is a world of snub, complaints, and second-guessing, but the recent announcement of The Golden Globe nominations already has people talking, and tweeting. Among the most noteworthy misses, in a year when the nominations are mostly academic, is The Big Sick and Wonder Woman, both of which got no attention at all from The Golden Globe Awards.

Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.

Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.
