The Roundup Begins, As More Than 180 Vie For 17 Film Academy Board Seats

  • Deadline
At this point, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ governors election looks more like a round-up than a race; more than 180 members have declared their interest in filling 17 contested spots on the 54-member Board of Governors.

Voting in the run-off round starts on Monday and ends May 18. That will narrow the present field to a maximum of four nominees per branch in the final round, which follows.

For now, there are on average about 11 candidates in the running for each slot. In the casting directors and costume design branches, only three members have declared for each slot. But not so in the actors branch, where 17 members — including Brie Larson, Jacki Weaver and Meg Ryan — are vying for the spot being vacated by termed-out Tom Hanks; or the producers, executives, and public relations branches, all of which have a bumper crop of candidates. Marvin Levy, currently a governor in the public relations branch,

Six of the Best – The Directors: Pedro Almodóvar

  • HeyUGuys
Writer, producer and director Pedro Almodóvar is arguably the most well-known and well-regarded Spanish filmmaker in the country’s colourful history. With eighteen feature films under his belt, and another currently in post-production, Almodovar has gone from strength to strength in his 30-odd year career, creating films that not only entertain, but also educate and captivate.

Whether it’s in his depiction of pain and loss in All About My Mother, the extremes of human passion in The Skin I Live In or sexual abuse in Bad Education, Almodóvar is not only celebrated for constantly breaking trends and subverting societal norms, but also idolised for his courageous determination in encouraging freedom in post-Franco era Spain, particularly in his representation of sexuality and strong female figures.

It’s not all seriousness, however, as many of Almodóvar’s most successful films strike a perfect balance between drama and comedy, with the director using outlandish characters (lesbian divas,

Watch Goya Awards Online – Live Streaming: Sinde Law / WikiLeaks Controversy

Assumpta Serna: Viva Wikileaks Today we've got the British Academy Awards, the American Society of Cinematographers Awards and the Spanish Academy Awards. You can watch live streaming online of the Goya Awards (that's the Spanish Academy's trophy) from Madrid's Teatro Real at Rtve.es. (British Academy, why don't you do the same next year instead of this year's absurd two-hour tape delay?) Protesters against Spain's new anti-piracy law are outside the theater. Right-wingers in the United States may call Wikileaks a "terrorist" organization, but many around the world think otherwise. Thanks to Wikileaks, Spaniards found out that their new anti-piracy law proposed by Minister of Culture Ángeles González Sinde was apparently a result of pressure from the Us government, itself working as an agent for the Hollywood majors and the top record labels. Many have seen the Sinde Law not as an attack on piracy, but as an attack on the Free Internet.

[DVD Review] Uncertainty

Uncertainty is the most recent in a long line of films that demonstrate how one decision can alter the course of a life. However, the film takes a new twist on this concept as the audience gets to see what would happen in either scenario. In one reality, Bobby (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt of (500) Days of Summer) and Kate (Lynn Collins from X-Men Origins: Wolverine), a young couple living in New York City, discover a cell phone in the back of a cab and opt to return it to the original owner, resulting in a dangerous chase through the city. In the other, Kate and Bobby attend a 4th of July party thrown by Kate’s parents at their Brooklyn home.

The transitions between the two storylines are well done, as the bottom of the screen carefully denotes “yellow” for any scenes that occur in Manhattan (as Kate and Bobby
