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

Annie Nominations Embrace "Coco"and "The Breadwinner"

by Nathaniel R

Coco and The Breadwinner are the top competitors for the Annies (and maybe the Oscars)亚博主页

The Annie Awards first began handing out prizes in 1992 but weren't quite on a calendar year yet withBeauty and The Beast,a 1991 film,honored in that inaugural year.They've since aligned themselves to the calendar and last year their top prize went toZootopia,which also took the Oscar.Coco leads their nominations for 2017 and also presumably leads the Oscar race withThe Breadwinnerthe widely admired darkhorse at both.Presumably againas we won't know what the Oscar nominations are until January 23rd.

Both of the leaders are powerfully rooted in cultural specificity (Mexico and Afghanistan respectively) and are,in their own way,tearjerkers,rather than the more traditionally glib action comedies that tend to be the bread and butter of the animated film least in America.

We'd love to raise a glass to the nominations for the streaming seriesTrollhunterswhich we're huge fans of but we'd rather throw the contents of that glass inb Annie's face for preferencingCars 3 and Despicable Me 3over the insanity ofThe Lego Batman Movie.If you wanted to honor a sequel,that's really the way you wanna go?The complete list of nominees and a few more comments,cheers,and jeers are after the jump...

The 2017 Animated Contenders: "Loving Vincent"

byTim Brayton

Last week,we got word of the26 films declared eligible for Best Animated Featureat the 90th Academy Awards.That means it's time for the Film Experience's not-quite-annual look at some of the animated contenders that don't have the high profile and financial backing of a big studio affair like亚博主页CocoorDespicable Me 3.Some of these might possibly be within hunting distance of an Oscar nomination;some,sad to say,won't have a chance in hell.But they're all worthy of attention.

I picked our first subject,Loving Vincent,for no particular reason other than because it's been one of my most-anticipated and because it's done quite well at arthouse theaters suggesting a good deal of interest.As such,it's with some qualified disappointment that I come to tell you all that it's...definitely notgreat.

I certainly won't say it's bad.But it's kind of startlingly uninteresting as a narrative.So let's not start by talking about it as a narrative...
