The King, The Swan And The BAFTAS

user
BAFTA, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has announced its "longlists", a rather quaint annual exercise that reduces the number of potential candidates for BAFTA Awards to 15. At the moment, in one of the key races of the awards season, the historical epic THE KING'S SPEECH and the ballet-goes-mad BLACK SWAN are tied for most mentions (to be translated in a few weeks time to most nominations). Not far behind are the films INCEPTION and THE SOCIAL NETWORK. The Leading Actor candi...

Screen Actors Guild Nominees

user
  While it limits its nominations to acting awards for film and television, the Screen Actors Guild Awards are considered very prestigious because they are given to actors by their fellow thespians. The awards ceremony, which used to be a private affair for guild members, is now televised in the United States and internationally, thus adding another layer in the run-up to the Academy Awards in February.   As with the Golden Globe Award nominations announced on Wednesday, Na...

British Independent Film Award Nominations

user
  With the British film industry still reeling from proposed massive budget cuts from governmental agencies, there is definitely an atmosphere of uncertainty in the air (which I experienced last week while attending the BFI London Film Festival). However, as far as the British films that will be hitting screens in the coming weeks, it actually appears to be a rather prolific period. This can be interpreted as either a brief celebratory calm before the storm, or just another indicator th...

London Film Festival Points To The Oscars

user
  Inevitably, any major film festival that occurs in the Fall season has a role play in determining eventual Oscar nominees and even winners. It all starts off at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, where Oscar hopefuls get their debuts, and continues into the season, presumably climaxing with nominations that come at the first of the year. With the Academy’s recent expansion of the Best Picture category to include 10 films, it is very likely that several of the films present...

Cadillac People's Choice Awards at TIFF

user
  The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is unique among A-list film festivals because it still is a non-competitive event. Unlike its other stellar festival cohorts, including Cannes, Berlin, Venice, San Sebastian and Sundance, TIFF does not bother with the formality of competition juries and all the drama that surrounds their sometimes dubious choices. Instead, the audience determnes the winners, especially of the Cadillac People's Choice Awards, which were announced on Sunday...
