Dark comedy “Birdman” boosted its Oscars hopes Sunday after landing the top prize at the 21st Screen Actors Guild Awards, a barometer of likely success at the all-important Academy Awards. The film about a washed up superhero movie star attempting to revive his career on Broadway took the SAG equivalent of the Oscars Best Picture with victory in the outstanding performance by a cast category. The comedy emerged victorious ahead of coming-of-age drama “Boyhood,” Wes Anderson’s screwball caper “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” World War II drama “The Imitation Game” and the Stephen Hawking biopic “The Theory of Everything.” The honor for “Birdman” came just 24 hours after Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s film scooped the top prize at the Producers Guild of America awards, another significant Oscars bellwether. The victory leaves the film on pole position heading into next month’s Academy Awards, which will be handed out in Hollywood on February 22. In the acting honors, ...

Prayers for Bobby is a 2009 television film that premiered on the Lifetime network on January 24, 2009. It is based on the book, Prayers for Bobby: A Mother's Coming to Terms with the Suicide of Her *** Son, by Leroy F. Aarons, which is itself based on the true story of the life and legacy of Bobby Griffith, a young *** man who killed himself in 1983 due to his mother's and community's homophobia. The film stars Ryan Kelley as Bobby Griffith and Sigourney Weaver as his mother, Mary. The film was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards (Outstanding Made for Television Movie; Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie - Sigourney Weaver).

Oscar retrospecting continued - I will skip the years 2002 - 04 as there is not much to retrospect about them save for the surprise Best Actor win by Adrien Brody for The Pianist in 02 02 - Best Picture winner: Chicago 03 - Best Picture winner: The Return of the King (a clean sweep 11/11) 04 - Best Picture winner: Million Dollar Baby Much more interesting was the race towards Best Picture in 05 when the critically acclaimed Brokeback Mountain 'Crashed' on its way to the podium, arguably due to the ingrate homophobia by majority of the 6000 members of AMPAS Precendent suggested a win for Brokeback Mountain having won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. It was also honored with Best Picture and Best Director accolades from the British Academy Film Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Producers Guild of America Awards, Critics' Choice Movie Awards, and Independent Spirit Awards among many other organizations and festivals.

The Geeky Godfather's 2013 Oscar Picks = For those who have been patiently waiting for my final Oscar predictions, I'm putting them all in one place for your convenience. There are a few tougher categories this year (like Best Picture - man, has this been a good year for movies!), but for the most part, it's just that fifth slot in some of the categories and how the Academy will go vs. some of their precursors like the Screen Actors Guild and Hollywood Foreign Press (who nominate the Golden Globes). If you read my Oscar update a few weeks back, you may already have a good idea where things are going, although since then, most of the other guilds have announced their nominations, giving us a clearer picture of how people in the industry are thinking. I noted some of the precursor nominations next to the names of the actors and movies I've personally picked.

Crime caper American Hustle and space drama Gravity are among the 10 movies up for the Producers Guild of America's version of a Best Picture prize.
I'm addicted to the Academy Awards, I realize ultimately they have nothing to do we quality, though I still enjoy all the hoopla surrounding them. Every year I download most of the nominees in the major categories. Here's the lasted predictions from Alt Film Guide: We’re a little late this year (well, and last year [2013]) in publishing our 2014 Oscar predictions. After all, in two weeks the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will be announcing the nominees for the 86th Academy Awards. Anyhow, as ancient philosophers used to say, "Better post (way, way) late Oscar predictions, than having them posted after the nominations have been announced." So, here they are, our 2014 Oscar Predictions in the first two categories, Best Picture and Best Director. Note: The one difference between our Best Picture shortlist below and the Producers Guild of America nominations is Inside Llewyn Davis replacing Blue Jasmine. Also: bear in mind that the list below features ten titles; however, as few as five may en ...

Today In Black History • January 2, 1884 Oscar Devereaux Micheaux, author and film director, was born in Metropolis, Illinois. Micheaux formed his own movie company and in 1919 became the first African American to write, direct, and produce a motion picture, “The Homesteader.” Between 1919 and 1948, Micheaux wrote seven novels and wrote, directed, and produced 44 feature films, including “Within Our Gates” (1919), which attacked the racism depicted in “The Birth of a Nation,” and “Body and Soul” (1924) which introduced Paul Robeson. Micheaux died March 25, 1951. In 1986, the Directors Guild of America posthumously honored him with a Golden Jubilee Special Award and the Oscar Micheaux Award is presented annually by the Producers Guild of America. For his contribution to the motion picture industry, Micheaux has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 1994 a documentary film, “Midnight Ramble,” was released about him. In 2010, the United States Postal Service issued a commemorative ...

Last night I went to a Producers Guild screening of the film "August: Osage County." It was followed by a q&a session with Director John Wells, Writer Tracy Letts and cast members including Meryl Streep, Dermot Mulroney, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, etc. It is a great film with a dynamic performance by Meryl Streep--I am sure that she will be nominated for an Oscar. Meryl Streep said that she did get some of the inspiration for her character from her parents. Because they wanted the cast to bond, they all stayed in town houses in the same area when they shot the film. They had one week to rehearse. I really enjoyed this film. I would highly recommend it.
Hey all-- next Tuesday, Nov. 19th at SOHO HOUSE, 7:30 PM, I will be moderating a discussion and q&a with Tom Donahue, director of the wonderful new documentary CASTING BY for the Producers Guild of America. If you love seeing actors discuss their first big breaks all thru the lucky miracle of the right casting, like Jon Voigt in MIDNIGHT COWBOY, Al Pacino in PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK, also Clint Eastwood, Glenn Close, Robert Duvall, Jeff Bridges, Robert De Niro, Diane Lane, Danny Glover, Bette Midler, John Travolta, etc, by all means see this film, and try to come to this event!

Today is the day that the Bully movie comes out on DVD. If you haven't seen it yet, please purchase a copy. It is not only a social statement on the current bullying crises, but frankly, beautiful piece of art. It won the Producers Guild of America Stanley Kramer Award and was short-listed for Best Doc at the Oscars. It also was created by my lovely friends Lee Hirsch and Cynthia Lowen and features the moving story of Tina Long's son Tyler and their family's efforts to turn tragedy into a movement. Check it out! xx
Date:  February 8, 2013   The Institute for Lifelong Learning at Western Iowa Tech Community College will host a screening of the award-winning documentary “Bully” Feb. 19 at 1:30 p.m. followed by a panel session.   The free public event will be in the Cargill Auditorium, Entrance 14, Parking Lot 4, Sioux City campus.   “Bully,” which includes a segment featuring the Sioux City Community Schools, reached the shortlist of 15 films selected for Best Documentary Feature for the 85th Academy Awards.   The film recently received the 2013 Stanley Kramer Award from the Producers Guild of America.  This award is bestowed on a film that raises public awareness on important issues.   The film’s executive producer, Cindy Waitt, will be on the panel.  Waitt is director of the Waitt Institute for Violence Prevention.  The Waitt Institute was the first major funder for “Bully” and provided multiple forms of support as the project progressed.   Other panelists are Mitch Pugh, editor of the Sioux ...
Over this past weekend, two of Hollywood’s labor organizations– the Producers Guild and the Screen Actors Guild– named their picks for 2012′s best in Film and Television. “Argo” won big; both the PGA and the SAG awards named “Argo” the Best produced and the Best Cast in a feature, respectively. Thes...
Iran hostage drama picks up best cast ensemble a day after winning Producers Guild award
So, “Argo” picks up another award that typically is a big predictor of Oscar success, the best cast award from the Producers Guild tonight (see all the winners here: ) It would be unusual, but the possibility is definitely growing that “Argo” will snag the Best Picture Oscar without even a nomination for Ben Affleck, who both starred in and directed the movie (though he’s also a producer, and would win an Oscar if it won Best Picture). The race is getting more and more interesting, but “Argo” definitely grabbed a huge share of momentum this weekend after wins from the Producers Guild and SAG.
It was great hearing the Producers Guild selected Ben Afleck's "Argo" as Best Picture, and Screen Actors Guild award for Best Ensemble Cast! Saturday is the Director's Guild. If he wins that then the Oscar's will be interesting. And it's very sad the Academy chose to ignore Afleck in the director category. If you haven't figured by now, "Argo" is my favorite picture from this year, with "Silver Linings Playbook," a close second.

Laptop insurance - because accidents happen!
"Argo" won the Critics choice, Golden Globe and the Producers Guild tonight. That Affleck snub is making the Academy look really out of touch.
Hey Oscarwatchers...Despite the storied Ben Affleck director snub at the Oscars, the Producers Guild have awarded ARGO with its Best Picture prize. So, ARGO has more precursor critic groups' Best Picture awards than any other film, the BFCA, the Golden Globe, and now the PGA. The Screen Actors Guild and Directors Guild (who did nominate Affleck for Directing) awards are in the next few days. The Oscars have never been this interesting when it comes to Best Picture.
I'll be posting my Oscar nomination predictions throughout the week but it's a rehash of what the major outlets are saying. I'd like to see a surprise Best Pic nomination (like The Hobbit or Skyfall) but my guess is that they will stop at 7 or 9. Best Pic predictions: Argo, Lincoln, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook, Les Miserables, Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained (for sure), Moonrise Kingdom, Beasts of the Southern Wild (pretty likely) and (longshot) Skyfall or Flight. These were the films nominated by the Producers Guild last week and they usually get about 80-90% of a match with the Academy.

While many of these films were already Oscar frontrunners, the unexpected inclusion of Skyfall and Moonrise Kingdom here make those films potential Best Picture contenders, though a PGA nomination does not always guarantee an Oscar nomination.

Ek Tha Tiger - Real Hero - Ravindra Kaushik Salman Khan starrer Ek Tha Tiger is slipping into a new controversy after its banned screening in Pakistan. Vikram Vashishtha, nephew of RAW (Research Analysis Wing) agent Ravindra Kaushik has claimed that film promos depict startling resemblance to his uncle's life and the makers should have asked for family's permission, before turning his life history into a movie. Reportedly, Ravindra Kaushik, working with Indian government was sent to Pakistan for certain undercover operations. His nephew has sent a legal notice to Yash Raj Films asking them either to provide the original script or let them watch the film before its official release on August 15. Central Board of Film Certification and the Film & TV Producers Guild and Film Federation of India have also been sent copies of the legal notice.
