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

Blueprints: Standout sequences in Original Screenplay winners

by Jorge Molina

Last Sunday,in a ceremony filled withjoyful surprises,heartbreaking disappointments,andEmma Stone's shocked tears,Green Bookwon Best Original Screenplay.Instead of driving into Peter Farrelly,Brian Currie and Nick Vallelonga's screenplay,let's take a look at the last ten years of winners of Best Original Screenplay (2008-2017),and a standout sequence in each.Because somehow Viggo Mortensen folding a pizza in half and Mahershala Ali learning how to eat fried chicken are now among their peers.

The King's Speech,Django Unchained,Her,Birdmanand more are after the jump...

Final Oscar Predictions !

With the Oscars nearly upon us,亚博主页it's time for final predictions.I've written upa lengthy piece for Towleroadwhich I hope you'll read and you can also compare my predictions tothe other Gurus of Gold at Movie City News.I shan't reprint the whole thing here since we haveall those charts you can peruseandmonths of articleson these very races.

While nearly everyone expectsLa La Landto be the major champion of the night,I don't think it will be record breaking. Damien Chazelle's popular musical would need 12 Oscars to beat the record of 11 which was set by亚博主页Ben-Hurback in 1959 and then tied by bothLord of the Rings: Return of the King(2003) andTitanic(1997).West Side Story(1961),yours truly's all time favorite movie,is the runner up to "most wins"with 10.La La Landmight tieWest Side Storybut I'm predicting 9 wins.That's stilla lotmind you but it's not quite record breaking.The number of wins for a Best Picture seems to be trending downward in the modern era.The onlyreallytruly big hauls in the past twenty years have been forThe English Patient(9 wins for 1996),Titanic(11 wins in 1997),Shakespeare in Love(7 wins for 1999),Return of the Kingwhich was a special case as they were obviously rewarding the whole trilogy (11 wins for 2003),andSlumdog Millionaire(8 wins for 2008).I can't seeLa La Landwinning less than 8.

But let's divvy up the categories into sure things,probably sure things,and very unsure things...

Smackdown '16: Nicole,Viola,Michelle,Naomie, Octavia

Presenting the Supporting Actresses of '16.This year's slate of nominees features a selfless adoptive mother,a doting but suddenly resentful wife,a woman whose tragic past has suddenly resurfaced,a savvvy mother hen and supervisor struggling to gain respect,and an addict who makes her sensitive son's life a nightmare of instability.


One long-time-coming breakthrough for an exciting actress (Get it Naomie Harris),two Oscar winners elevating their films with warmth and precision (Kidman & Spencer),and two Oscar darlings who arguably should have won already attacking tragic material (Williams and Davis).Who will be triumphant in the smackdown?


Though we usually arrange for special guests including actors,writers,and film critics,for the first Smackdown of the new season,we opted to do it all 'in house' with only TFE crew just to get the series back up and running: Nathaniel,Abstew,Chris,and Murtada (you can read about the team here) are discussing the nominees.And now it's time for the main event...
