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:

Matt Damon is reteaming with his ‘Ford v Ferrari’ director James Mangold for ‘The Force’

Published

Nearly 14 years after starring in Martin Scorsese‘s brilliant Infernal Affairs remake The Departed, Matt Damon is set to head back into crooked cop movie territory with his Ford v Ferrari director James Mangold.

According to Deadline, Damon is attached to play the lead role of Denny Malone in Mangold’s adaptation of Don Winslow’s 2017 best-selling novel The Force, which is a pretty damn good read if you haven’t gotten around to it yet.

In the book, Malone — a highly decorated NYPD detective sergeant — is the dirtiest of dirty cops, having stolen millions of dollars worth of cash and narcotics in the wake of one of the biggest heroin busts in the history of New York City.

Little does Malone know, though, that the feds are hot on his tail “and he must walk the thin line between betraying his brothers and partners, the job, his family and the woman he loves, trying to survive, body and soul, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all,” as the book’s official synopsis puts it.

David Mamet wrote and turned in the first draft of the script for The Force in 2017, but Mangold is currently in the middle of a rewrite with his Logan collaborator Scott Frank, so I suppose we’ll see how that turns out.

Production begins on Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Nightmare Alley’ starring Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett

Guillermo del Toro Nightmare Alley Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES

Production is officially underway on Guillermo del Toro’s star-studded new project Nightmare Alley, which features one hell of an ensemble cast that includes the likes of Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett in the leading roles.

An adaptation of William Lindsay Gresham’s novel of the same name, Nightmare Alley follows Stanton “Stan” Carlisle (Cooper), a young and ambitious con man who teams up with a female psychiatrist (Blanchett) for a mentalist act, only to realize that she’s even more corrupt than he is.

Rooney Mara, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, David Strathairn, Jim Beaver, and Mark Povinelli round out the film’s cast, with del Toro alumni such as Ron Perlman and Richard Jenkins also said to be in talks to join.

Leonardo DiCaprio was initially supposed to play Cooper’s role but was forced to bow out earlier this year as production on Nightmare Alley would’ve conflicted with that of Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, which stars DiCaprio alongside Robert De Niro and is expected to begin shooting in the spring.

No word yet on when Searchlight Pictures plans on releasing Nightmare Alley, but stay tuned for more info on that.

Excited to start shooting today on our new adventure NIGHTMARE ALLEY with @RealGDT and many of our regular gang. pic.twitter.com/lzPHhXpppI

Synopsis: Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary, and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.
