The Message of the Oscar Nominations: You’d Better Have a Social Message

  • Variety
Each year at the Left Coast crack of dawn, when the Oscar nominations are announced, there’s generally at least one major nomination many pundits were predicting that fails to materialize. When that happens, entertainment media tends to rise up as one and say the s-word: snub. In truth, it’s not usually a snub; it’s just somebody getting passed over for other nominees who were loved a little more than the conventional wisdom realized. That’s why the chatter about it tends to get worn out by the end of the day.

But when the nominations were announced this morning, and it was revealed that Bradley Cooper had failed to get a best director nod for “A Star Is Born,” my feeling was: This may or may not have been a “snub,” but it was emblematic. It signified something arguably major in terms of what the Oscars are becoming.

Golden Globes flashback: Sandra Oh felt like ‘someone set me on fire’ after win for ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ [Watch]

Golden Globes flashback: Sandra Oh felt like ‘someone set me on fire’ after win for ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ [Watch]
Sandra Oh is co-hosting the Golden Globe Awards next month with Andy Samberg, but that won’t be the first time she’ll be up on the Globes stage. A Best TV Drama Actress nominee for “Killing Eve,” Oh won Best TV Supporting Actress in 2006 for her performances as Cristina Yang on “Grey’s Anatomy” — and she could hardly believe it.

“I feel like someone set me on fire!” Oh opened her speech (watch above) after collecting her Globe from presenters Teri Hatcher and then-future Superman Brandon Routh.

Oh defeated Candice Bergen (“Boston Legal”), Camryn Manheim (“Elvis”), Elizabeth Perkins (“Weeds”) and Joanne Woodward (“Empire Falls”) in the catch-all supporting category. At the time, “Grey’s” was in the middle of its peak second season and was weeks away from its post-Super Bowl episode — aka the bomb episode — which remains its most-watched and highest-rated hour.

A giddy Oh thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,

‘Operation Finale’: Steven Spielberg Helped Sir Ben Kingsley Portray the ‘Impenetrable’ Nazi Adolf Eichmann

‘Operation Finale’: Steven Spielberg Helped Sir Ben Kingsley Portray the ‘Impenetrable’ Nazi Adolf Eichmann
Sir Ben Kingsley has built a career on real-life portrayals, from his Oscar-winning role in “Gandhi” to lauded composer Dmitri Shostakovich in “Testimony.” However, it’s his work in projects related to the Holocaust and World War II that may resonate the most, including playing Anne Frank’s father in a 2001 miniseries, Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal in 1989’s “Murderers Among Us: The Simon Wiesenthal Story,” and perhaps most notably, Oskar Schindler’s accountant Itzhak Stern in Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List.”

Kingsley’s obvious depth of feeling for those parts make it striking that his latest role puts him literally on the wrong side of history. Chris Weitz’s “Operation Finale” dramatizes the 1960 operation to bring former SS officer and unrepentant Nazi Adolf Eichmann (Kingsley) to justice following his years-long escape to Argentina. He’s a twisted, terrifying figure, and even Kingsley didn’t relish the work, but he

What’s your favorite Best Picture Oscar winner of 1980s: ‘Rain Man,’ ‘Terms of Endearment,’ ‘Platoon’ … ? [Poll]
The 1980s were a big era for the “epic” movie winning Best Picture at the Oscars. “Chariots of Fire,” “Gandhi,” “Out of Africa,” “Platoon” and “The Last Emperor” all share that grand-scale style of film that tends to be rewarded decade after decade at the Oscars.

Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy House to release as Partition:1947 in India

Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy House will release as ‘Partition:1947’ in India on 18th August, 2017. The film stars Huma Qureshi, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson and Michael Gambon.

Talking about the film Chadha has said, “We were always taught that Partition was because of infighting. But my research shows that it was a calculated political move… I had access to top secret documents in the British library. Their agenda behind the Partition was to eliminate India as a formidable rival to their global supremacy. I am sad that India only thought of itself rather than imagined itself as a global superpower.”

Partition: 1947 tells us the untold story behind Partition.

Tubelight Movie Review

Eid isn’t Eid if you don’t have a Salman Khan film to gush over. Since back in 2009, it is fully accepted in the industry that Salman owns Eid. Indian and world audiences have loved him over and again. Whether it was the remake of a Telugu film Pokiri in Wanted, the romantic spy action of Ek Tha Tiger or the cross-border comedy that was Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Salman has firmly settled himself as the man for Eid in Bollywood. Last year was no different with the blockbuster Sultan. From all indications however, this year will be different. Even though Kabir Khan is helming the megaphone again, this film is different to anything that has come before from Salman or Bollywood. For the first time, we are going to look at war from the perspective of the soldiers’ families.

“Kya tumhe yakeen hai?” From the poster, we have the immediate feel of change.
