AMC and Regal Ban ‘Roma’ From Playing During Oscar Best Picture Showcase Screenings

AMC and Regal Ban ‘Roma’ From Playing During Oscar Best Picture Showcase Screenings
Per tradition, AMC Theaters and Regal Cinemas will be screening this year’s nominees for Best Picture back-to-back as part of their annual Oscar showcases (Regal has its Best Picture Film Festival and AMC has its Best Picture Showcase). However, one nominee that will not be playing during these events is Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma,” which tied with “The Favourite” for earning the most nominations this year. Among “Roma’s” 10 Oscar nominations are Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress. Deadline reports AMC and Regal are barring “Roma” from their Best Picture showcases because it is a Netflix release.

In a statement commenting on the decision, AMC said, “For more than a decade, movie-lovers have enjoyed the AMC Best Picture Showcase to catch up on the nominated films that played at AMC throughout the prior year. This year, Academy members nominated a film that was never licensed

#OscarsSoMale: People Are Outraged Over Lack Of Female Filmmakers In This Year’s Best Director Category

This year was supposed to be different, right? After opening up the Academy to a huge number of diverse people, this year’s Oscar nominations were going to be the bright, shining example of inclusivity that the awards show has lacked in years past. While there seems to be some diversity among the nominees, there is definitely a strong lack of females in the major filmmaking categories, despite 2018 being a banner year for women directors and writers.

What Netflix Backlash? The 2019 Oscar Nominations Snubs and Surprises

Among the biggest surprises of the 2019 Oscar race: There’s no such thing as a Netflix backlash. Not only did the most dominant force in Hollywood land 15 Oscar nominations, including “Roma” (10) and three surprise craft nods for the Coen brothers’ “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” but “Roma” is a historic achievement. It’s the 10th foreign-language nominee that also contends for Best Picture, tying Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (2000) for the most nominations earned by a foreign-language film.

Alfonso Cuarón also became the first filmmaker in Oscar history to land nominations for Picture, Director, and Cinematography. “Roma” is the fifth film to be nominated for Foreign Language Film and Best Picture in the same year. Each of the previous four — “Z” (1969), “Life Is Beautiful” (1998), “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (2000) and “Amour” (2012) — won for Foreign Language Film, but not Best Picture. If “Roma” wins Best Picture, it will be a

‘Song of Parkland’ Trailer: Marjory Stoneman Douglas Drama Students Try to Heal Their Community

It’s been less than a year since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. 17 students and staff died in the attack, leaving both the school community and the entire country unsure of how to move forward. The new HBO documentary “Song of Parkland” shows how the school’s drama department returned to school in the wake of the tragedy to put on a production to help unite the school. In addition to chronicling the efforts of the students to finish the production, the film also follows a number of Stoneman Douglas classmates as they became prominent activists throughout the rest of 2018. In addition to working to finish the last of their rehearsals, the newly released trailer for the film shows the students marching in demonstrations.

At 1990 Oscars, Kim Basinger Called Out the Academy for Snubbing Spike Lee and ‘Do the Right Thing’ — Watch

At 1990 Oscars, Kim Basinger Called Out the Academy for Snubbing Spike Lee and ‘Do the Right Thing’ — Watch
After three decades of making movies, Spike Lee is finally an Oscar-nominated director. He’s also finally a director with a Best Picture nominee. The filmmaker earned these long-overdue first nominations for “BlacKkKlansman,” but the general consensus among cinephiles is that Lee should have scored nominations for Best Director and Best Picture at the 63rd Academy Awards for “Do The Right Thing.” Lee was overlooked for Best Director that year in favor of Oliver Stone (“Born on the Fourth of July”), Woody Allen (“Crimes and Misdemeanors”), Peter Weir (“Dead Poets Society”), Kenneth Branagh (“Henry V”), and Jim Sheridan (“My Left Foot”).

In the wake of Lee’s historic Oscar nomination, a clip from the 1990 Oscars is going viral for featuring actress Kim Basinger calling out the Academy live on air for snubbing “Do The Right Thing.” “Driving Miss Daisy” won Best Picture at the Oscars that year, with the other

Review: Three Characters in Search of an Author—M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass"

In a baby-pink room in a mental hospital somewhere in Philadelphia sit three men who believe themselves to be superhuman: David Dunn (Bruce Willis), a blue-collar security-system installer and vigilante; Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), a former employee of the Philadelphia Zoo with a fantastical multiple-personality disorder; Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), alias “Mister Glass,” a comic-book expert and Mabuse-esque evil genius who has spent the last two decades in an almost catatonic state. Facing them sits Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson), incredulous stand-in for our suspended disbelief, who has made it her job to convince all three that they are suffering from extreme delusions of grandeur. Still, she noticeably hedges her bets by insisting that Dunn, who claims (among other things) to be almost indestructible and unusually strong, remain chained to a metal plate that is bolted to the floor.The scene comes around the midpoint of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass,

AMC, Regal, & Cinemark Ban ‘Roma’ From Oscars Best Picture Special Events

For weeks now, we’ve known (or at least predicted) that Alfonso Cuaron’s love-letter to his childhood, “Roma,” would secure Netflix with its first-ever Best Picture Oscar nomination. And this morning, that was confirmed, as the drama picked up a whopping 10 Oscar nominations. While Netflix is probably celebrating quite heavily thanks to the morning’s proceedings, there’s one group that is excluding “Roma” from the same recognition the other seven nominees are enjoying – the major theater chains.

Coen Brothers Shock With ‘Buster Scruggs’ Oscar Nomination — Read the Short Stories They Adapted

Netflix dominated the 2019 Oscar nominations as expected thanks to Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma,” which earned the streaming giant its first nomination for Best Picture. “Roma” is nominated for 10 Academy Awards this year, the most of any film aside from “The Favourite,” which also landed 10 nominations. While “Roma” is unquestionably Netflix’s crown jewel of Oscar season, the studio surprised with “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” the Coen brothers’ Western anthology film that had a strong showing with three nominations: Best Original Song, Best Costume Design, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

With their Best Adapted Screenplay nomination, Joel and Ethan Coen have now been nominated for seven screenwriting Oscars throughout their career. The duo won Best Original Screenplay for “Fargo” and Best Adapted Screenplay for “No Country for Old Men.” In a surprise turn of events, “Buster Scruggs” pulled off a nomination in the Best Adapted Screenplay category, a shock considering many

From Spike Lee to Alfonso Cuarón: Why #OscarsSoWhite May Take a Break in 2019

Oscar viewership sank to record lows last year, but diversity among its 2019 nominees could provide the Academy Awards celebration with a much-needed ratings jolt. Inclusion sells: A 2015 Nielsen report found that the more diverse the major-category nominees, the larger the audience.

In the past, there was less the Academy could do to influence that income; it’s hard to vote on movies that haven’t been made. This year, however, there are indications that the Hollywood pipeline has responded to the demands of April Reign’s 2015 hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. (It may not be coincidental that four years is also a rough estimate of the time required for a film to move from inception to awards consideration.)

At the risk of damning with faint praise, this year’s nominees may represent the most diverse in Academy history — enough for the hashtag to take a well-deserved vacation. The nominees include two directors of

First Look At Casey Affleck’s ‘Light Of My Life’ Which Premieres At The Berlin Film Festival

Casey Affleck has had a pretty quiet last couple of years. The Academy Award-winning actor took a step out of the spotlight after sexual harassment lawsuits resurfaced in 2017, as Affleck found himself in the #MeToo conversation. Since then, he’s appeared in only a couple of films, 2017’s “A Ghost Story” and last year’s “The Old Man & the Gun.” But in 2019, the actor has at least one new film, the upcoming “Light of My Life,” which will have its world premiere at the Panorama sidebar at the Berlin Film Festival.
