Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Beauty Break: ASC Tributes + Best Cinematography Honors

The American Society of Cinematographers will hold their annual awards dinner tonight where they'll be honoring Jeff Bridges with their Board of Governors Award,three-time Oscar winner Robert Richardson (Hugo,Aviator,JFK) with the Lifetime Achievement Award,and two time Emmy winner Jeffrey Jur (Carnivàle,Bessie) for the Career Achievement in Television Award.They'll also hand out some competitive prizes and presumably give Alfonso Cuarón yet another trophy for his mantle (let's hope he has steel reinforced shelving at home given this season's worth of hardware.)UPDATE: oops we were wrong and Cuarón lost for practically the first time this season.

Let's look at that beautiful imagery from the winners and nominees again with a few bonus gifs...

  • WINNER: Łukasz Żal,PSC for "Cold War"

What an incredible DP Żal is.After the consecutive Pawel Pawlikowski's successes ofIda(2013) andCold War(2018),will he be in demand in Hollywood or just stick to work across the ocean?While his best work has been in black & white in Poland he does color and cinema from other countries as well...

April Foolish Predictions: Let's talk Cinematography!

by Nathaniel R

We didn't forget about the April Foolish Predictions.They just got all tangled up with Tribeca screenings,Cannes news,Avengers mania,and everything else going on in April.So herewith another prediction batch.First charts are now up for all of the visual categories,barring Costume Design which will get its own post tomorrow just because.

Cinematography is always one of the most exciting contests as there are so many genuinely gifted DPs out there doing great work over and over again but only one Oscar to hand out each year.At the moment I'm wondering about the futures of these four DPs in particular...

Still Blissing Out Over "La La Land"

Over the weekend I wrote upan Oscar preview for Towleroad- which you can consider a companion to our currentBest Picture Chartandupdated Oscar predictions.Here's what I wrote aboutLa La Land,which I realize I didn't capsule review for you at TIFF:

This musical from the young writer/director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) won the coveted "Audience Award"at Toronto.That prize nearly always aligns with a Best Picture nomination in January.But the nomination will be the least of it - it has "winner"written all over it.La La Landis a total bliss-out,a colorful two hour romance with song and dance numbers about an aspiring actress and her jazz musician boyfriend.This is the third movie to co-star Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling and their onscreen chemistry is even better this go around and it was tremendous to begin with inCrazy Stupid Lovefive years back.

Here's a shocking statistic for trivia buffs: IfLa La Landis nominated for Best Picture it will be the first original live-action musical to do so sinceAll That Jazz(1979).The musical nominees inbetween them were either animated  (Beauty & The Beast),adaptations of pre-existing shows (Chicago) or used pre-existing music for their songs (Moulin Rouge!).IfLa La Landwins it will be the first original movie musical to win the Oscar sinceGigi(1958).

In addition to these general notes here are a few slighter more specific ones...
