Awards-Season Noms Lacking Again For Women Behind The Camera
When Oscar nominations are announced Tuesday morning, don’t expect many female directors, writers, producers, cinematographers, editors, art directors, visual effects artists and sound mixers to be mentioned.

For a world reeling from divisive politics and barefaced cynicism, Jon S. Baird's Stan & Ollie, based on Jeff Pope's screenplay about Laurel & Hardy's unceremonious tour of Great Britain after the Second World War, when their stars had largely faded, is an existential salve. It is a paean to the spirit of artistry that drove two of the finest comic performers ever to grace the screen and a testament to their resolve when the world seemed determined to drive a wedge… Read

Normally, as Green Book has now done, when a movie starts out the season by taking the top People’s Choice prize at the Toronto Film Festival, launches awards-giving season with a Best Picture win at the National Board Of Review, then backs up its cred by taking the most Golden Globes including one for Best Picture (Comedy/Musical), and then wins the Producers Guild Of America Best Picture honor, you would have to dub it the front runner. That is what several pundits are… Read

PGA Awards Honoree Kenya Barris Tips Hat To Norman Lear, Reveals Early Dream Job
Kenya Barris accepted the Visionary Award at the Producers Guild Award on Saturday night, but in his evocative comments from the stage it was clear that the forward-looking native of Inglewood, CA., still has a good view of his past.

‘BlackKklansman’ Producer Jason Blum: “It’s Spike Lee’s Time” If Oscar Voters Do The Right Thing
Jason Blum minted his reputation as a Hollywood producer with wildly lucrative genre franchises including Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious, so it feels unexpected to find him in the thick of things this awards season with a legitimate contender. But, really, how unexpected can something be if it keeps happening?
