Proving that a movie with no dialogue is preferable to a movie with dialogue written by Woody Allen, the 2012 Academy Award for Best Picture has been given to The Artist. The award capped off a stunning night for the film, which took home a total of five Oscars, including Best Director (Michel Hazanavicius) and Best Actor (Jean Dujardin).

As I publish, Uggie the Dog is no doubt snorting coke off of Salma Hayek‘s rack. Good for him. He earned it.

Well I’ll be damned. Jean Dujardin has won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Actor. His performance in The Artist beat out Demian Bichir, George Clooney, Gary Oldman, and Brad Pitt. The fact that his role was almost entirely without dialogue makes the win even more impressive, or perhaps more frustrating if you weren’t a fan. Either way, I chalk the win up to Uggie‘s performance rather than Dujardin’s. I love that god damn dog.

With the requisite Martin Scorsese butt-kissing out of the way, the Academy is now available to finally honor The Artist. Director Michel Hazanavicius secured the best directing award for bringing back to life the whimsy and scope of classic silent movies. Haters gonna hate so let’s hear it if you disagree with this decision on part of the Academy. But bear in mind, this is the man who coaxed an amazing and moving performance (both emotional and physical) from his star.

I refer naturally to Uggie.

Looks like Netflix has gained another foothold in its fight for survival. Knowing a good thing when they see it, the Weinstein Company has decided to feed Netflix their content rather than go to the pay cable channels. That means awesome films like The Artist and Coriolanus, and less than awesome films like Madonna‘s W.E., will be available on the Netflix Instant Watch streaming system, and not on channels like noted Netflix cock-blockers HBO.

If anything, this just proves how resilient the streaming industry is. Months ago, Netflix was more hated than Osama bin Laden. And today, they’ve got Uggie. There’s no stopping them. (via /Film)

Instead Of Hiring Cirque De Soleil, Turn The Oscars Into The ‘Hollywood Hunger Games’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/instead-of-hiring-cirque-de-soleil-turn-the-oscars-into-the-hollywood-hunger-games/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/instead-of-hiring-cirque-de-soleil-turn-the-oscars-into-the-hollywood-hunger-games/#comments Fri, 17 Feb 2012 21:30:02 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=245599 "Let the 1st Annual Hollywood Hunger Games begin!"

The post Instead Of Hiring Cirque De Soleil, Turn The Oscars Into The ‘Hollywood Hunger Games’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
It was announced late last year that, in the interest of time, the Academy Awards will not be showcasing the Best Song nominees’ live performances. The reasons for doing so seem pretty self-evident. Though the live music performances are the only aspect of the Oscars that could be considered “interesting” or “engaging” they do nothing to allow self-congratulation in the film industry, which is just, just unacceptable. I mean, it’s not really a circle jerk if one of the people is facing outside the circle, now is it?

However, it has been deemed that what DOES keep the circle jerk circle intact is Cirque de Soleil. Why? Because the Academy is going to make this night of in-jokes and self-congratulation whimsical and beloved as shit.

My first thought was, couldn’t they do that with an appearance by The Muppets?

And to an extent, they are, as Miss Piggy and Kermit will be presenting an award on next Sunday’s telecast, but at the end of the day, they’re puppets, and puppets don’t convey the classiness of the Oscars the way a mute bunch of Frenchmen in unitards do.

In context, the selection of Cirque de Soleil is in pretty good keeping with theme with this year’s ceremony which appears to be, “Eh. Sure.” I mean, when you’ve got Billy Crystal hosting something, the logical move is to pepper that something with clichéd performances by a group like Cirque de Soleil. Like Crystal, Cirque de Soleil manages to capture everyone’s attention while entertaining no one.

The only promise of Cirque de Soleil performing anywhere, is that, over time, the probability that something very terrible will happen keeps increasing. I don’t wish any of the members harm, but the ethereal being that is “Cirque de Soleil”; I wish that a lot of harm. I hope Cirque de Soleil gets bludgeoned by Hugh Jackman’s cane during one of his inevitable song and dance numbers.

My problem with Cirque de Soleil mirrors my problems with the Academy telecast, so it’s very fitting that the Academy really milks this announcement for all it’s worth today. The fact is, Cirque de Soleil is a pretty impressive mesh of choreography, on-stage talent, music, and production, exactly like the Oscars. It’s natural to respect such a spectacle. But extremely hard to enjoy.

The Academy raises the bar so high for spectacle and esteem, that its awards show neglects the entertainment value of the evening. People are supposed to have fun during the Oscars, both on stage and off, and that hasn’t happened for a long time. Sure, with The Muppets presenting, audiences will get a nostalgic chuckle, and perhaps a whiff of fun, but the Oscars use these instances far too sparingly, instead taking themselves far too seriously for a show about movie awards.

A few things I would rather see than Cirque de Soleil performing a competent, or even impressive routine:

  • Christopher Walken doing almost anything.
  • An extended shot of Samuel L. Jackson laughing uproariously in a Kangol hat, unable to believe that the producers “went there.”
  • Kid Rock performing all the Best Song nominees while a memorial montage of Joe C. plays in the background. He would have been 38 this year, folks.
  • A live advertisement that takes place on stage. I’m in love with this idea because it would inevitably cause a rift between the Academy, which would pocket the money directly, and ABC, which wouldn’t see a dime.
  • A five-minute tribute by the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes to Jeremy Lin.

But mostly, more than I have ever wanted anything in the world, I would like Billy Crystal to take the stage to introduce Cirque de Soleil, only to announce that they would not be performing. A loud “thunk” would indicate that the Kodak Theater’s doors had been locked shut. All lights would dim, save for one spotlight illuminating a void on the stage, until Academy President Tom Sherak stepped briskly into the illuminated circle. He would clear his throat, then declare to the crowd:

Ladies and Gentlemen, members of the Academy, and fans of cinema alike, thank you for joining us on Hollywood’s most important evening. For 84 years now, the Oscars have commemorated not only the winners of the evening, but have also served as a snapshot of the state of film in particular, and, to a lesser extent, the state of the world in general.

However, in recent years, Hollywood has lost its way. Unchecked hubris and studios beholden to money above art have led to complacency among filmmakers. Sure, films like The Artist and Tree of Life serve as testaments to the medium, but it’s a sad state of affairs when films appear to be made for the sole purpose of getting an Oscar. The system has been manipulated. The rift between art and entertainment has grown too wide. The system must be overhauled, and I, as Academy President, have taken it upon myself to reinvent the system. Tasked with this reinvention, I cannot be burdened by insubordination of Academy members or, God forbid, “celebrities.”

The 84th Annual Oscars are over. The rest of the awards will be placed in an incinerator. It is my complete pleasure to inform you that you are all now attendants of the 1st Annual Hollywood Hunger Games. I’m sure you’re all familiar with the book. At least, I hope you are, as there will be no explanation given. Your time begins now.

Good luck to you all.

At that point, the house lights would come on while “Ride of the Valkyrie” comes blaring out of the orchestra pit. A puzzled, horrified look would appear on the face of every person in attendance until someone (probably Clint Eastwood or Tyler Perry) would just commence beating the ever-living shit out of the person next to them, serving as a catalyst for the orgy of violence that was to take place.

Bruce Vilanch would cackle shrilly, then announce to the crowd, “Let the games begin!” as he shot flaming arrows into the curtains of the Kodak theater in a clever homage to Inglourious Basterds.

And that’s when things would get interesting…

Chapter 2 to follow…

What the hell is going on with Uggie? First, it was announced that he was retiring from the business completely. It was later revealed that he actually has a mysterious neurological ailment that’s forcing him to give up his career but not until he appears in a sketch with Billy Crystal during this year’s Oscars telecast. Now there’s word that the dog from The Artist will not be attending the Oscars after all. I really haven’t been concerned about a dog’s whereabouts this much since that time Beethoven was left alone in a room with the Thanksgiving turkey.

A representative for the Weinstein Company says that Uggie has “not been asked to participate or appear at the Oscars.” This is in direct opposition to what his trainer had said a few weeks back. Just level with us. Does Uggie even exist? Is he computer-generated? Or worse, has he died and is now being dragged around on fishing line a la Weekend at Bernies? (BBC)

Uggie, the wonderdog from this year’s Best Picture nominee The Artist, is reportedly suffering from a “mystery shaking syndrome.” This explains why after a doggie-career-defining performance in The Artist, he and his trainer threw in the towel, retiring from showbiz. However, unable to resist the siren call of Tinseltown, Uggie anted up for one last score at the Oscars, where he is rumored to be performing with Billy Crystal.

After Thousands spent on vet bills by his trainer, Omar Von Miller, has determined that Uggie’s condition is neurological, leading me to believe that this dog simply doesn’t want to perform with Billy Crystal. I suffered from a similar neurological shaking disorder when I saw City Slickers 2: The Legend of Curly’s Gold, and also when I saw a preview for Forget Paris. Knowing that you’re going to have to actually perform his schtick in person, with him, live, must be even more horrifying.

We wish Uggie a fast and safe recovery. Hang in there, Uggs! Vulture

Ah, the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Where hot actresses from movies slum it with hot television actresses to prove who can wear the prettier dress. Also, awards are dispensed.

The winners often dictate who will walk away with the Academy’s gold so, the results of last night’s 2012 SAG Awards may prove to shake up the Oscars race. The biggest news this year isn’t who won, but who didn’t. Critical darling and Oscars odds-on favorite The Artist walked away with nary an award. Jean Dujardin nabbed Best Actor, but beyond that the film didn’t score. That’s what you get when you don’t memorize your lines.

On TV, the big winners, as always, were Boardwalk Empire and Modern Family. Though individual awards did go to Alec Baldwin, Jessica Lange, and Betty White. Sofia Vergara won along with the rest of her co-stars for thier work as an ensemble on Modern Family. Perhaps she’ll be back next year for The Three Stooges.

This year’s best actor is retiring from the craft. Uggie, the dog who is a dog, has decided to hang up his collar. Trainer to the The Artist star Omar von Muller announced, “I’m retiring him.” Bring me my pills. My heart hurts.

It begs the question though. Is he for real retiring or retiring the way that rappers do?

“He may do a couple of little things here and there because he enjoys them, but I don’t want to put him through long hours anymore. He’s getting tired.”

I guess it’s for the best though. I’d hate to see him stuck in the lame dogs that play professional sports or helps kids solve mysteries rut. Besides, their is an heir to the throne.

“I think he will be fine with Dash stepping in,” addss Von Muller. “Uggie is 10 years old and has done a lot of work; he wants to relax at home. If somebody wants to do a movie with Uggie, they’ll just have to deal with Dash!”

Sad to see him go but time will reveal how this plays out. Anthony Hopkins tries this every few years too. We’ll see if it sticks. (Life & Style)

The post Get to Know The 2012 Oscar Nominees, You Rube appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Before you woke up this morning, the Oscar nominees were announced. It would seem that this year, more than other years, there was a pretty big bifurcation between the few widely embraced films and the ones that were nominated for an Oscar. As such, many movie fans might be unfamiliar with a few of the nominees. Well, due to that and the fact that the Academy now enjoys nominating seemingly hundreds of films for Best Picture.

So, for those unfamiliar, here’s a quick rundown of the films jousting for the title of Best Picture. Like the Highlander, there can be only one.

The Artist

The first entry here is by far the most artsy, and perhaps least accessible by wide audiences. It’s a French film directed by Michel Hazanavicius, starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo. I’m actively rooting against this film just so I don’t have to type those names throughout March if it wins. The film follows a male film star in the twilight of his career and a female star on the upswing. So it’s kind of like A Star Is Born, which is another film our readers probably haven’t seen.

Anyway, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the film is in black and white. Oh. And it’s largely silent. Content and merit aside, I could see the Academy going for this guy solely to show how damn sophisticated they are.

The Descendants

While it hasn’t made a splash at the box office (many nominees fail to), this Alexander Payne (Election, About Schmidt, Sideways) film has seemed to emerge as “the Oscar shoe-in that the masses are getting on board with.” It stars George Clooney as a laissez faire dad who has to get in touch with his kids in Hawaii after their mother suffers a boating injury and falls into a coma. Like much of Payne’s fare, this film is purported to be drier than a cracker, but the film has managed to nab other nods for both Clooney and Payne, so the powers that be are digging it.

Also, the film has Matthew Lillard in it, which I thought would preclude it from being nominated, but apparently not.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Jonathan Safran Foer wrote this well-received novel in 2005, focusing on one boy’s journey to make sense of his father’s death in the September 11th attacks. The source material’s reception wasn’t as warm as Foer’s previous effort, Everything Is Illuminated, but all the problems with the can be offset by the fact that this film has Tom f*cking Hanks, so the critics can go to hell.

This movie has been divisive, with many critics railing it for its heavy reliance on saccharine subject matter (“Remember 9/11? That sucked!”) and the performance of child star Thomas Horn, who they found to be unlikeable. It sucks to go on a journey with an unlikeable person.

Hold on to your hats, yarmulkes, and/or turbans, cause I’ve got a piece of movie trivia from IMDb that will knock your socks off! Actually, I guess I should have told you to hold on to your socks, all things considered, but I digress.

By now you’ve probably seen Uggie, the lovable mutt who appeared in the Oscar-nominated film The Artist as well as the not-even-allowed-in-the-Oscar-parking-lot film, Water for Elephants. Well, while combing through his IMDb page, I came across this startling bit of trivia in the aptly named “trivia section.” As it turns out, Uggie the Dog “is a dog.” Crazy, right?

Now, I’m no dummy, so I know better than to believe everything I read on the Internet, especially if it’s dog related. After all, I’ve been hearing rumors that Katherine Heigl is a bitch for years, but last week when I brought her a bag of bacon flavored Beggin’ Strips outside the Golden Globes, she just looked at me like I was nuts before peeing on my leg and scampering away in a huff.

So, not wanting to get tricked again, I went to Snopes.com to verify the claim. Unfortunately, an entry on the subject has not yet been created, so for now, let’s just file this one as “undetermined.”

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president, Tom Sherak, from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, announced the nominees for the 2012 Academy Awards this morning. The former nominee reached into a large glass bowl and removed the names of males and females for each category.

First of all, just give Uggie his award now. That dog is a treasure.

Secondly, please find some kind of award for Stains the Cupcake Dog. Though no longer in the spotlight, he’s very deserving.

A Guide To Seeming As Pretentious As Possible When Discussing ‘The Artist’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/a-guide-to-seeming-as-pretentious-as-possible-when-discussing-the-artist/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/a-guide-to-seeming-as-pretentious-as-possible-when-discussing-the-artist/#comments Mon, 02 Jan 2012 18:00:06 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=240939 This film is widely regarded as a Greco-Roman clusterfuck of class.

If, God willing, you’re anything like me, you would sooner gnaw off your own thumbs than subject yourself to the critical darling film The Artist. However, if you’re anything like me, you want everyone to think that you’re better than them, so you want to talk about how much you enjoyed The Artist, and how you appreciate the film on levels that they only experience in their wet dreams.

Good news. You can exercise these sociopathic tendencies fluidly by adhering to this guide. The tips presented here allow you to appear superior to others, with the added benefit of suggesting that you have no regard for their opinions or existence.

- Constantly Pepper Your Discussion With The Phrase “Duality Of Man”
 
- Only Discuss It In The Context of Other, More Obscure and Pretentious Films You’re Sure No One Has Seen
 
- When Someone Tries To Make A Point About The Film Smile Incredulously As You Slowly Take Off Your Square Glasses
 
- Keep The Fact That You Haven’t Seen The Film Because It Looks Really Boring A Total Secret
 
- Remember That No One Worth Talking To Has Actually Seen The Artist, So You Can Pretty Much Lie And Say It’s About A Dog And His Penguin Friend That Fight Crime
 
- Recommend The Film With The One Caveat That The Film Is Incredibly “About Itself.” If People Ask What You Mean, Stand There Silently And Try To Stream Blood From Your Eyes
 
- If People Ask You For Your Thoughts On The Artist, Tell Them To Wait Right There While You Go By A Cashmere Scarf So That You Seem More Artistic When Discussing The Film
 
- Don’t Refer To The Film As “Standing In The Shadow Of Chipwrecked
 
- Cite A.O. Scott’s Review, But Don’t Pull A Copy From Your Pocket And Read Directly From It
 
- Remember That It Isn’t About A Family From Pittsburgh That Takes In A British Butler. That Was The TV Show Mr. Belvedere
 
- Careful When You Talk About Aspects Of The Artist “Not Being Black And White,” Because The Film Was Shot Just That Way
 
- Start Off Praising The Performance Of Star Jean Dujardin. Your Audience Will Immediately Tune Out And You Can Pretty Much Say Anything From Then On Out
 
- You Shouldn’t Really Dwell On The Fact That The Guy That Played Borat’s Producer Is In The Film, And You Certainly Shouldn’t Experience A Visible Erection When Mentioning It
 
- When You Talk About Geoffrey McNab’s Glowing Review from the Cannes Film Festival, Feel Free To Pronounce It “Can” or “Con.” You’ll Sound Like A Haughty Prick Either Way
 
- Discuss The Postmodern Aspects Of The Film. It’s Really Hard To Disprove That A Work Of Art Has Postmodern Aspects Because The Wikipedia Entry On Postmodernism Might As Well Be Written In F#cking Greek
 
- No Matter How Much You Want To Use The Word, Don’t Describe The Production Design Of The Film As “Faggy”
 
- Take Off Your Tim Tebow Jersey Before Classifying The Film As A “Tepid Copy-Of-A-Copy of Truffaut”
 
- Don’t Bite Anyone Who Disagrees With Your Analysis Of The Film
 
- Limit Yourself To Three “Jacking Off” Motions During A Conversation About The Acting Performances
 
- Limit Yourself To Zero Instances Of Actually Jacking Off When Talking About The Acting Performances, Especially When Specific To John Goodman

The Golden Globe nominations are hot off the presses. As they should be, the film nominees seem to be a little less highbrow than the Oscar-worthy names that have been bandied about. See you in hell, Tree of Life and The Artist!

I’m appreciating the love for 50/50, a film that, in my opinion, struck just the right balance of funny and touching. Your impression of the film nominations may vary.

TV is historically more of a mixed-bag, and the nominations for Boss and American Horror Story for best drama, to the exclusion of Breaking Bad (seriously? No Breaking Bad?), and the inclusion of Zooey Deschanel as “best actress” seem pretty dubious. Oh well. It’s the foreign press. That’s probably why The Borgias made the cut. Lousy Borigas.
