WEEKLY WRAP: Globes chatter, Batman buzz, foreign Oscar surprises

Posted by · 6:42 pm · January 21st, 2011

• The Golden Globes did their thing, with Ricky Gervais’s antics drawing more attention than the sweep for “The Social Network.” • David Fincher’s film continued its dominance at the Broadcast Film Critics’ Association Awards, which Kris reported from first-hand. • As if to remind us that there’s more than one film in the race, this […]

Costume confusion

Posted by · 5:00 pm · January 20th, 2011

Gerard will address this category in tomorrow’s Tech Support column, but I did want to say something about Best Costume Design — partly because the Guild dropped some rather interesting nominations today, and partly because it’s the technical category that’s still prompting the most head-scratching as I work towards my final predictions. We all know […]

Updates to The Circuit

Posted by · 9:21 am · January 20th, 2011

Today “Black Swan” and “Inception” maintained their uniquely perfect guild status (having been cited by every single guild and society) by nailing down nominations in the contemporary category from the Costume Designers Guild. Every frontrunning possibility was chalked up, so the task is still pretty daunting to predict how that will go with Oscar.  That […]

Costume Designers Guild nominees

Posted by · 10:48 am · January 26th, 2010

A nice guild mention for “Crazy Heart” which establishes some wider-spread love for the film.  It’s still a threat to slide into the 10, I’m telling you. I expect this to be the period field minus “Julie & Julia” and add “Inglourious Basterds” (which was surprisingly snubbed) or “Bright Star” (which, the fact that it […]

‘Duchess,’ ‘Slumdog,’ ‘Knight’ take CDG Awards

Posted by · 1:34 am · February 18th, 2009

So, the final guild awards before the Oscars have been doled out — and “Slumdog Millionaire” maintains its unprecedented, unbroken streak, with Suttriat Larlab winning the contemporary field at the Costume Designers Guild awards. “The Dark Knight’s” Lindy Hemming predictably took the fantasy category while, in the only victory that has any bearing on the […]

WEEKLY WRAP: Globe surprises, best shots, BAFTA nods

Posted by · 6:00 pm · January 16th, 2009

Sorry the Weekly Wrap feature has been M.I.A. these past few weeks — between the holidays and various disasters, they got a bit forgotten. Anyway, it’s back this week, and what a busy week it was: • In a new annual institution at IC, Kris reviewed the top 10 shots of the year here … […]

TECH SUPPORT: Gleaning the guilds

Posted by · 8:51 am · December 14th, 2008

It’s been three weeks since the last “Tech Support” column. For that, my apologies. In the meantime, we’ve had Thanksgiving, the NBR, the LAFCA, the NYFCC, the BFCA and the Golden Globes to keep us entertained. The Screen Actors Guild is the first guild to announce its nominees and will do so next week. Between […]
