The Favourite Critics' Choice Awards
FOX SEARCHLIGHT

The Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association announced today the nominees for the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards, with Yorgos Lanthimos’ darkly comedic period drama The Favourite leading the way with a whopping 14 nominations.

The film is nominated in nearly every film-related category, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Actress in a Comedy for Olivia Colman, Best Supporting Actress for both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Director for Lanthimos.

Meanwhile, Ryan Coogler’s groundbreaking Marvel superhero film Black Panther managed to pick up an impressive 12 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor for Michael B. Jordan, while Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong biopic First Man trails close behind with 10 nods.

“The films of 2018 have been some of the most culturally impactful in recent history,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin. “They’ve portrayed stories from every walk of life, from all different perspectives, and have touched audiences and inspired conversations that we will continue to have for years to come.”

On the television side of things, FX’s The Americans and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and Showtime’s Escape at Dannemora picked up five nominations each, while HBO and Netflix lead the networks with 20 nominations each.

“The extraordinary wealth of talent and growing number of platforms makes narrowing down each television category an unenviable task,” said BTJA President Ed Martin. “Despite that, we are thrilled with this year’s nominees and look forward to recognizing their outstanding achievements.”

The 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards will be broadcast live on The CW Network on Sunday, January 13 beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET. The complete list film and television of nominees are:

The ‘Uncharted’ movie is probably just one of those things that’s never actually going to get made

Published

on

Uncharted
NAUGHTY DOG/SONY INTERACTIVE

Between Spider-Man parting ways with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and now this new development regarding the long-in-the-works film adaptation of Uncharted, it’s been a pretty eventful and rather unfortunate week for Tom Holland.

Dan Trachtenberg, the fifth director to be attached to Uncharted, has reportedly exited the project for unspecified reasons, though it’s likely it had to do with creative differences or whatever bullshit excuse it is that these studios manage to pull out of their asses whenever a director leaves a high-profile project.

Again, Trachtenberg was not the first, second, third, or fourth director to be attached to be Uncharted, but the FIFTH. David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon, and Shawn Levy were all attached to the project at one point or another but ended up leaving for various different reasons.

On the bright side (?), however, Sony is already looking to lock down a replacement for Trachtenberg and a new director should be in place soon in anticipation of the film’s early 2020 production start.

But, like, let’s be real here for a second; what are the chances of the Uncharted movie actually happening at this point? This is a truly cursed production and if it does actually ever get made, I vow to release my tax returns.

Adam Driver and Annette Bening work to expose the CIA’s torture program in ‘The Report’ trailer

Published

The Report
AMAZON STUDIOS

Another day, another trailer for a movie starring Adam Driver; a few days after Netflix blessed us with two teasers trailers for Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, Amazon Studios has released the first trailer Scott Z. Burns’ The Report.

Driver stars here as idealistic staffer Daniel J. Jones, who is tasked by his boss Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) to lead an investigation of the CIA’s inhumane Detention and Interrogation Program, which was formed in the wake of 9/11 and used “enhanced interrogation techniques” — that’s government codeword for torture.

“Jones’ relentless pursuit of the truth leads to explosive findings that uncover the lengths to which the nation’s top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a brutal secret from the American public,” reads the synopsis.

In addition to Driver and Bening, The Report features one hell of an impressive ensemble cast that includes the likes of Jon Hamm, Sarah Goldberg, Michael C. Hall, Douglas Hodge, Fajer Kaisi, Ted Levine, Jennifer Morrison, Tim Blake Nelson, Linda Powell, Matthew Rhys, T. Ryder Smith, Corey Stoll, and Maura Tierney.

The film premiered at and was purchased out of the Sundance Film Festival in January and currently boasts a 94% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so it sounds like we’re going to be in for quite a treat when The Report hits theaters on November 15 and Prime Video on November 29.

Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman & Margot Robbie glare intensely at each other in the ‘Bombshell’ trailer

Published

on

Bombshell
LIONSGATE

Despite taking place entirely in a hot, stuffy elevator and featuring little to no dialogue, the first trailer for Jay Roach’s Fox News drama Bombshell about the downfall of Roger Ailes does a pretty damn good job of showcasing what is likely to be a serious contender this awards season.

Written by Charles Randolph, Bombshell chronicles the inevitable collapse of Ailes’ reign at Fox News, where he served as chairman and CEO up until his resignation in 2016 amid dozens of sexual harassment and abuse allegations from several female employees at the conservative media empire.

Among the many women who accused Ailes of misconduct were former Fox News hosts Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson, who are played here by Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman, respectively, while Margot Robbie plays as a fictional associate producer named Kayla Pospisil.

As if those three stars weren’t enough, the film’s ensemble cast also includes the likes of John Lithgow (who plays Ailes), Allison Janney, Kate McKinnon, Malcolm McDowell, Mark Duplass, Rob Delaney, and Stephen Root.

I don’t know about you, but I dig everything about this trailer (I could literally watch Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, and Margot Robbie glaring at each other in an elevator all day) and I’m actually pretty excited to see how Bombshell turns out when it drops in December.
