The Best Picture runner-up was "Elle," the French-German movie directed by the Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven. The film's star, France's Isabelle Huppert, was named Best Actress for her performance as a woman who seeks vengeance against the unknown assailant who raped her. "Elle" also was named Best Foreign Language Film by the SFCS.

My spouse and I both enjoyed Hidden Figures, which I would recommend to just about anyone. It has the virtue of a TCM classic film: an intelligent script, a terrific cast, excellent direction and cinematography.

 

Taraji P. Henson has the main role of Katherine Goble, a rather shy mathematical genius who has the double disadvantage, for 1961, of being both female and African-American. NASA will ultimately make use of her talents, and those of other African-American women, because they must. The film does a good job of portraying the period--every skinny tie in LA must have been used for the scientists' costumes--and doesn't force 2016 attitudes on any of the characters. The racism is clearly shown, but the audience isn't hit over the head with a cast-iron skillet.

 

Henson shows us the shyness, the intelligence, the natural and learned deference of Katherine, which makes her one explosion of righteous anger the more compelling, and the very 1950s romance (with the outstanding Mahershala Ali) the more touching. Henson and Ali have been added to my list of favorite movie couples.

 

Octavia Spencer as Dorothy Vaughan, who does a supervisor's job without the title, recognition, or pay, and Janelle Monae as Mary Jackson, the sassy young woman who wants to take engineering classes which are only given at the white high school, both provide strong support, as does Kevin Costner as the head of the engineers and scientists trying to put American astronauts in space. Costner's career has had its ups and downs, but he is perfectly cast, looks good in his crew cut, and gives a totally committed and believable performance.

 

Theodore Melfi's first-rate direction, with the camera in the right place, is at the service of the script and the actors, and Mandy Walker's cinematography is always appropriate and unmannered. It's possible to make a 2016 film without steel-blue tones dominating? Who knew? The women wear attractive dresses that nonetheless look like clothes that might have been found in 1961.

 

Footage from the actual space launches is used, and at the end of the film we get to see images of the actual women, a most welcome touch.

I found Don Cheadle's Miles Ahead (2015) which is competing in this year's awards affairs to be quite disagreeable.  It wasn't the story which was about a Rolling Stone writer in search of an interview with reclusive Miles Davis then being caught up in a MacGuffin search for a stolen studio tape that resembles an evening in Scorsese's After Hours.  That was quite smart.  And it wasn't the performances from Cheadle, Ewan McGregor or Emayatzy Corienaldi which were all quite good.  It was Miles Davis himself.  He is an egotistical colossal rick and not only does the film fail to provide any empathy for him but it also fails to provide any understanding of his character.  I usually don't have a problem with films depicting distant or even evil characters but this one left me feeling indifferent. It wasn't until the closing credits that you get a glimpse of Davis' talent.

Although "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" isn't the media sensation that "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was a year ago, the 2016 stand-alone tale is doing very well, thank you. 

The newest installment of the mega-successful franchise created by George Lucas has just cracked the Top 10 all-time domestic box-office list. That's impressive when you consider that "Rogue One" opened on December 16, 2016. According to boxofficemojo.com, it is now at No. 8, having passed two other "Star Wars" films. Now listed at No. 9 is "Star Wars: Episode 1 -- The Phantom Menace" (1999). In 10th place is "Star Wars -- Episode IV: A New Hope" (1977).

 

With a domestic box-office take of $481,656,462 million so far, "Rogue One" is poised to supplant the No. 7 film, Disney Pixar's 2016 animated  hit "Finding Dory." The sequel to the 2003 film "Finding Nemo" was the highest-grossing 2016 picture during the calendar year.

 

It will be interesting to see if "Rogue One" can come close to the financial success of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which is No. 1 all-time domestically with a total of $936,662,225 million.

 

NOTE: "Rogue One" is gradually making its way up the all-time worldwide chart. Boxofficemojo.com currently lists it at No. 41 with a take of $918.8 million.

Felicity Jones stars as the heroic Jyn Erso in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"

 

As of January 11, 2017, here are the top-grossing movies of all time on a domestic basis (according to box-office mojo.com):
 

1. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (2015) -- $936,662,225 million.

Once again a 4 star job! I certainly wish though-(Jakeem, Bogi56), you fellow "TCM-ITE'S" would join -in on having our own little "Predict the 2016 *Oscar nominees contest!?"

 

I've never really made a science of oddsmaking & handicapping the Globes as I've wriiten before, mainly due to them very often & especially in recent yrs-(mostly ever since SAG Awards started for 1994)

They pull some off-the-wall choices.

Matter of fact, I was somewhat joking is recently saying maybe *Mel would win BD for "Hacksaw Ridge"

 

& I've never did so well as this evening & did go out on a limb a bit-(don't don't take it as seriously)

in predicting these on a couple others websites & I think it's a record-(not certain on these, just guessing. I'm certain you'll look this fact of, PLEASE DO!)No film has yet made a clean sweep such as "LA LA LAND" just did? Going 7 for 7 & they don't have all those technical categories, which it's a lock to mostly dominate come *Academy awards evening on Hollywood, Blvd. 1 I didn't not think it would also take home was for Best Screenplay-(thinking "Manchester by the Sea")

 

& this year I only really paid attention to the television categories, due to & I know many still dislike her. WHY, is my question? & knew her finally getting nominations-(both here & more importantly with SAG) it's putting her back on the map a bit. & I knew, she'd almost certainly lose though. Sadly, I cannot see her show "Stranger Things"-(P.S. WHO'S SEEN IT & GIVE YOUR OPINION?)& I think HBO's "Westworld" is very strong sometimes & thought Thandie Newton was a lock? Plus, I see Nolte lost here for "Graves" was only able to catch it's pilot though. THEY STILL ADORE "THE LIMEY'S" SAME OF COURSE GOES WITH "THE *OSCARS"

 

THANK YOU

 

 

(P.S. To you (2 to 3) did you personally already go & see "La La Land" or the 1 I'm hoping to see tomorrow "Hidden Figures?" The sole 2016 release I'm planning to go & see is *Scorsese's epic "Silence" after that.)

Man, man, o, man *Warren Beatty's likeable (***) "Rules Don't Apply" ($4m.) sure hit the deck, huh

spence, please don't quote the entire gigantic post. Either just post your comment (people will know what you're talking about) or edit the quoted post down to just the specific items you want to comment on. When you quote these massive posts, it makes the thread more of a chore to read through.

I've never really made a science of oddsmaking & handicapping the Globes as I've wriiten before, mainly due to them very often & especially in recent yrs-(mostly ever since SAG Awards started for 1994)
They pull some off-the-wall choices.
Matter of fact, I was somewhat joking is recently saying maybe *Mel would win BD for "Hacksaw Ridge"

 

& I've never did so well as this evening & did go out on a limb a bit-(don't don't take it as seriously)

in predicting these on a couple others websites & I think it's a record-(not certain on these, just guessing. I'm certain you'll look this fact of, PLEASE DO!)No film has yet made a clean sweep such as "LA LA LAND" just did? Going 7 for 7 & they don't have all those technical categories, which it's a lock to mostly dominate come *Academy awards evening on Hollywood, Blvd. 1 I didn't not think it would also take home was for Best Screenplay-(thinking "Manchester by the Sea")

 

& this year I only really paid attention to the television categories, due to & I know many still dislike her. WHY, is my question? & knew her finally getting nominations-(both here & more importantly with SAG) it's putting her back on the map a bit. & I knew, she'd almost certainly lose though. Sadly, I cannot see her show "Stranger Things"-(P.S. WHO'S SEEN IT & GIVE YOUR OPINION?)& I think HBO's "Westworld" is very strong sometimes & thought Thandie Newton was a lock? Plus, I see Nolte lost here for "Graves" was only able to catch it's pilot though. THEY STILL ADORE "THE LIMEY'S" SAME OF COURSE GOES WITH "THE *OSCARS"

 

THANK YOU

 

 

(P.S. To you (2 to 3) did you personally already go & see "La La Land" or the 1 I'm hoping to see tomorrow "Hidden Figures?" The sole 2016 release I'm planning to go & see is *Scorsese's epic "Silence" after that.)

Man, man, o, man *Warren Beatty's likeable (***) "Rules Don't Apply" ($4m.) sure hit the deck, huh

 

I suppose you're talking about your fave, Winona Ryder. She is excellent in "Stranger Things," and the series is a nice homage to some late 1970s and early 1980s sci-fi films by Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter. With a bit of Stephen King-like eerieness added for good measure.

 

But "The Crown" definitely was deserving of the awards it received. It's a rich and sumptuous look at the early years of Elizabeth II's reign before she evolved into the dowdy matriarch with a passion for corgis.

 

I'm only sorry that John Lithgow didn't win for his portrayal of Sir Winston Churchill, Elizabeth's first prime minister. Of course, it was nice to see Hugh Laurie (and Tom Hiddleston and Olivia Colman) win for "The Night Manager."

I'm really pleased that The Night Manager won those awards. Great show, and they were great. I liked La La Land and was pleased with its wins; just sorry Manchester by the Sea didn't win more. I think it's a better movie.

 

I'm curious about Moonlight, which I want to see. But it's the old story -- how can a film be best film, if it's not (according to the awards) best anything else?

It amazes me that "Grand Hotel" won the 1931-32 Oscar for Best Picture without receiving any other nominations.

Since that far off time, when a film has won "Best Film" without winning several -- or at least as few -- other awards, there has been criticism of the sense of the process. So it doesn't happen much anymore, at least with the Oscars. For example, the Best Picture almost always wins Best Director; and Best Screenplay in its appropriate category. Then it also tends to win either an acting award or two; or a few technical awards. But never just Best Film!

"The Greatest Show on Earth" (1952) won only a Best Story Oscar in addition to its Best Picture award. Last year, "Spotlight" won Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

Yes -- but those films at least won best writing awards, so you could say the film had such a terrific story that it could be best film. But to having nothing that is best and still be best film doesn't make sense, not in this day and age. I guess it's more likely to happen with the Golden Globes. I can't see it happening at the Oscars.

I suppose you're right about the Globes. For a moment there, I thought Ryan Reynolds had won the Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical award for "Deadpool." And I wouldn't have been surprised if it had happened!

The Birth of a Nation (2016) was written, directed, produced by and stars Nate Parker.  It is a credible effort.  Good story.  Nice production.  Well acted.  But it was too cornball for me.  Both the picture editor and composer have top credentials but I feel they have both let the film down.  The cheese factor could have easily been excised from the picture and the score did not have to be so melodramatic.  Post production has combined to make the film way too obvious.   I'm sure those that prefer to be lead by the filmmaker would disagree.

In case you missed the most talked-about moments of the 74th Golden Globe Awards, it all began with an acceptance speech by the British actor Hugh Laurie of "The Night Manager"...

 

 

...and his comments were echoed by the Cecil B. DeMille Award honoree Meryl Streep.

"Deadpool" strikes again!

 

The offbeat blockbuster film, based on a garrulous Marvel Comics character, is one of 10 films nominated for best picture of 2016 by the Producers Guild of America. Last week, the adapted screenplay for "Deadpoool" -- credited to Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick -- was nominated for a Writers Guild of America award.

 

The film also received Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy (for Ryan Reynolds, the picture's star and co-producer). It took Reynolds and his collaborators a little more than a decade of trying before a major studio -- 20th Century Fox -- agreed to greenlight the film.  

 

Released in February 2016, "Deadpool" has become a worldwide box-office hit with a take of $783.1 million. For his efforts on and off the screen, Reynolds was named Entertainment Weekly magazine's 2016 Entertainer of the Year. 

 

 

 

The complete list of Producers Guild theatrical film nominees is as follows:

 

The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures

  • "Arrival" (Dan Levine, Shawn Levy, Aaron Ryder, David Linde, producers)
  • "Deadpool" (Simon Kinberg, Ryan Reynolds, Lauren Shuler Donner, producers)
  • "Fences" (Scott Rudin, Denzel Washington, Todd Black, producers)
  • "Hacksaw Ridge" (Bill Mechanic, David Permut, producers)
  • "Hell or High Water" (Carla Hacken, Julie Yorn, producers)
  • "Hidden Figures" (Donna Gigliotti, Peter Chernin & Jenno Topping, Pharrell Williams, Theodore Melfi, producers)
  • "La La Land" (Fred Berger, Jordan Horowitz, Marc Platt, producers)
  • "Lion" ( Emile Sherman & Iain Canning, Angie Fielder, producers)
  • "Manchester by the Sea" (Matt Damon, Kimberly Steward, Chris Moore, Lauren Beck, Kevin Walsh, producers)
  • "Moonlight" (Adele Romanski, Dede Gardner & Jeremy Kleiner, producers)
     
    There are five nominees for animated films:
  • "Finding Dory" (Lindsey Collins, producer)
  • "Kubo and the Two Strings" (Arianne Sutner, Travis Knight, producers)
  • "Moana" (Osnat Shurer, producer)
  • "The Secret Life of Pets" (Chris Meledandri, Janet Healy, producers)
  • "Zootopia" (Clark Spencer, producer)
  • "Kubo and the Two Strings" is a stop-motion animation tale from Laika Entertainment and distributed by Focus Features. Set in ancient Japan, the picture revolves around a heroic journey undertaken by a one-eyed boy and his companions, Monkey and Beetle. The film has earned several awards from critics' organizations.
 
The Producers Guild winners will be announced at a ceremony in Beverly Hills on Saturday, January 28, 2017.
