Supporting Actress Drama-Emmy breakdown

"I'd love for Gwendoline to win but I think it will be Fiona Shaw because she's an industry vet."-Brittani

Toni Erdmann and The Longest Foreign Nominees

ByDancin Dan

If you've heard one thing about Germany's Best Foreign Film Oscar nomineeToni Erdmann,other than how great it is (and you can add me to the chorus of voices showering it with praise),it's probably been that Maren Ade's shaggy-dog comedy is LONG.So,trivia hound that I am,I was naturally curious to see just how long it was in the grand scheme of Oscar.

Toni Erdmannhas either the 16th or 17th longest running time of all the films nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.That confusion comes from the weirdness of different versions of films and which ones the Academy actually saw when voting...

FYC: Best Original Screenplay,Toni Erdmann

by Daniel Crooke

While you will find ancient cities,hairy beasts,and moments of jaw-dropping audacity steering the rudder of its staggering runtime,you won't hear a film score in Maren Ade'sToni Erdmann– anepic of the heart and soul that depends on its screenplay to direct emotional payoffs the way many films depend on their orchestra.Set against the backdrop of a rapidly globalizing yet regionally fractured Europe,the central couple inToni Erdmannis not a pair of battle-scarred lovers or unlikely allies in combat but an estranged father and daughter,torn apart by generational attitudes in the culture war.

This central reconciliation resonates thematically now more than ever,at a time when capitalist societies across the Western world forgo compassion and human consequence in pursuit of a more profitable bottom line.In her hysterical,observant comedy,Ade crafts a squirrely,screwy rebuke to anesthetized corporate cold-heartedness but – more importantly – champions a disappearing social fabric by weaving together the frayed ends of a family unit...

Sight & Sound's Top 20

So many lists and awards announcements this week you'd think it was...oh,yes,itisDecember.Sight and Sound enter the fraynow with their top 20 which is a mix of expected auteur worship titles,festival films that may or may not ever actually open.It's also verynow.The oldest title here is the great German continuous shot filmVictoria(which premiered at festivals last year -- we nominated it for cinematography in 2015) but almost everything else just opened or hasn't opened yet!It's to be expected but also deeply frustrating that distributors never really catch up to film buzz...
