Oscar Podcast Preview: Marty Finally Wins Big

Read More

2006 stands apart as one of my favorite Oscar years because it was like this past year in a way. It’s rare that the film I personally WANT to win actually wins.

Tom O’Neil Switches Prediction to DiCaprio for Wolf over McConoughey

Read More

In one corner, mighty Paramount’s $100 million movie with one of the world’s biggest stars and one of the most exciting films of the year.  In the other corner, the tiny Dallas Buyers Club which got made on a wing and a prayer, so lacking in funds they couldn’t even afford a lighting crew or lights.  It’s the kind of David and Goliath story that really can’t lose.  If you’re…

A Week Before Ballots are Sent Out, are the Lead Acting Frontrunners Locked?

Read More

My first thought is no.  They are locked down as any have been in recent years. True, ballots have yet to go out but the consensus appears to be set. Best Picture…

Fever Dream: the Collaboration of DiCaprio and Scorsese

Read More

The Oscar race might be straining the Santa Barbara film festival past its breaking point. Wednesday night, the appearance of Oprah Winfrey nearly broke the festival and last night’s appearance of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Martin Scorsese caused such a frenzy you’d think it was 1964.

Read More

When both Amy Adams and Leonardo DiCaprio won at this past weekend’s Golden Globe awards it looked like they might have momentum to get into the Oscar race.  Their Globes wins, plus their BAFTA nominations make this seem very likely indeed.  It is going to depend on how much the Academy “liked” August: Osage County’s Meryl Streep, and how much they “liked” The Wolf of Wall Street.  The Academy is…

Leonardo DiCaprio – The Actor of the Year

Read More

Leonardo DiCaprio was the best thing about this year’s Great Gatsby. He turns in a career best performance in The Wolf of Wall Street. He has had his best year yet as an actor. But we know he will be ignored for it because he always is. A lovely piece about the two Leos just appeared in the New Yorker, a beautifully written essay on DiCaprio’s work in both films…
