Tribeca Film Festival to Feature ‘Fargo,’ ‘Royal Tenenbaums’ Cast Reunions

Tribeca Film Festival to Feature ‘Fargo,’ ‘Royal Tenenbaums’ Cast Reunions
The casts of “Fargo,” “Raging Bull,” “The Five Heartbeats,” and “The Royal Tenenbaums” will reunite at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

In addition, the festival, which is returning to in-person events after Covid scrambled plans for the 2020 edition, will host talks with the likes of Bradley Cooper, Amy Schumer, Gina Prince-Bythewood, M. Night Shyamalan, and members of the punk group Blondie.

The festival will take place largely in outdoor venues around each of the city’s five boroughs. It unfolds between June 9 to June 20, and comes nearly 20 years after the festival was founded in the wake of 9/11.

Just as that festival was formed to inspire people to return to lower Manhattan, which had been devastated by the terrorist attack, this iteration comes as New York City is struggling to reemerge from a pandemic that upended cultural and economic life.

BAFTA TV Awards Analysis: ‘The Crown’ Hit With Surprising Snubs as ‘Small Axe’ Dominates

BAFTA TV Awards Analysis: ‘The Crown’ Hit With Surprising Snubs as ‘Small Axe’ Dominates
Steve McQueen’s “Small Axe” is poised to go big at the BAFTA Television and Craft awards.

The Amazon and BBC anthology series leads the field this year with 15 nominations, narrowly topping the largest totals from the last couple of editions, and has the likes of John Boyega and Letitia Wright installed among the favorites in the lead acting categories. However, it will likely face stiff competition across the board from “The Crown” and “I May Destroy You,” the second and third most-nominated series respectively, come the ceremony on June 6.

Michaela Coel’s lauded HBO drama will go head-to-head with “Small Axe” in a mouth-watering mini-series category, which also includes “Normal People” and Channel 4’s darkly brilliant four-parter “Adult Material.” It’s relatively safe to assume the race will be of the two-horse variety, given that “Adult Material” hasn’t garnered as much fanfare as its rivals, and that

‘I May Destroy You’ Obliterates the Competition at First Indie Spirit TV Awards

‘I May Destroy You’ Obliterates the Competition at First Indie Spirit TV Awards
The 36th Film Independent Spirit Awards made history on Thursday night, with the introduction of television categories which attempt to honor independently-spirited TV series in the same vein as the organization champions independent film.

The five new categories — Best New Non-Scripted or Documentary Series, Best Scripted Series, Best Female Performance in a Scripted Series, Best Male Performance in a Scripted Series, Best Ensemble Cast in a New Scripted Series — had an extremely straightforward set of winners, which cynical minds might suggest is a sign that an organization that specializes in independent film might not be the right awards body to dabble in the messy business of television.

Netflix took home three awards, edging out HBO which topped the other two categories. One of those wins for HBO had been established months ago when the Indie Spirit nominations were first announced, crowning “I May Destroy You” as the best ensemble cast.

Independent Spirit Awards Define What’s ‘Indie TV’: ‘I May Destroy You’ and ‘Unorthodox,’ for Starters

Independent Spirit Awards Define What’s ‘Indie TV’: ‘I May Destroy You’ and ‘Unorthodox,’ for Starters
Heading into Thursday’s Spirit Awards, Film Independent’s inaugural foray into recognizing television had already passed the so-called “smell test.” That’s because, at the very least, HBO’s “I May Destroy You” had already been recognized as best ensemble cast in a new scripted series.

And if there was any TV show that embraces the independent spirit, it’s absolutely “I May Destroy You,” the deeply personal series created by and starring Michaela Coel.

I May Destroy You” also picked up the first-ever award for best scripted series, giving it a nice boost as the Emmy For Your Consideration season gets underway. The show was heralded last summer as one of the best new series of the year — but it premiered last June 7, which feels almost a lifetime ago. The show was shut out of the Golden Globes, much to the chagrin of critics.

Indie Spirit Awards Give ‘Nomadland’ a Key Win and Award Carey Mulligan in Best Actress Nail-Biter
The 2021 Film Independent Spirit Awards, held virtually on Thursday evening, marked another big night for “Nomadland” and more of this year’s indie gems.

Usually a casual, day-drinking affair on the beach in Santa Monica, the digital ceremony marked the final stop before Sunday’s Academy Awards. The evening’s top prize of best feature went to “Nomadland,” as did best director to its helmer Chloé Zhao. Both have been steamrolling triumphantly through the pandemic-extended award season.

in this year’s nail-biting best actress race, Carey Mulligan notched a win for best female lead for her powerful turn in “Promising Young Woman.” She dedicated her award to a “true independent spirit,” the late British actress Helen McCrory. Riz Ahmed took best actor for his role in “Sound of Metal,” in a stacked category against Steven Yuen of “Minari” and the late Chadwick Boseman for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Both Shira Haas and Helen Mirren to Play Golda Meir

Both Shira Haas and Helen Mirren to Play Golda Meir
By Abe Friedtanzer

There are now officially two projects in development about former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. The first, announced a month ago, is a TV series produced by Barbra Streisand called Lioness starring Shira Haas. The second, reported earlier today, is a film from Israeli director Guy Nattiv that will feature Helen Mirren. Golda Meir has been performed for cameras and on stage several times and the role is often an awards magnet. Both Ingrid Bergman and Judy Davis were Emmy nominated playing her, and Tovah Feldshuh received a Tony nomination. For the new projects let’s consider these two very different casting choices and the famous woman they’ll portray…

Helen Mirren To Play Israel’s Only Female Prime Minister Golda Meir In Movie Biopic

Helen Mirren To Play Israel’s Only Female Prime Minister Golda Meir In Movie Biopic
Oscar-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen) will portray Israel’s iconic and only female Prime Minister, Golda Meir, in new feature biopic Golda.

Produced by BAFTA-winner Michael Kuhn (Florence Foster Jenkins), Golda will be directed by Oscar-winner Guy Nattiv (Skin). Embankment will represent international sales with CAA Media Finance and ICM jointly handling the domestic rights.

Production is eyeing an October start.

The screenplay by Nicholas Martin (Florence Foster Jenkins), who also produces, focuses on the dramatic and high-stakes decisions that Meir – also known as the “Iron Lady of Israel” – faced during the Yom Kippur War, which followed Egypt, Syria, and Jordan’s surprise attack on the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights in 1973.

The world’s fourth and Israel’s first and only woman to hold the office of Prime Minister, and the first of any country in the Middle East, Meir died of lymphoma in 1978, four years after resigning from office.

Shira Haas To Star In Golda Meir TV Series

Golden Globes TV Analysis: Netflix Takes More Than Half Of Awards As Streamers Translate Nominations Into Wins

Golden Globes TV Analysis: Netflix Takes More Than Half Of Awards As Streamers Translate Nominations Into Wins
Netflix had a storming night at the Golden Globes with The Crown and The Queen’s Gambit helping the streamer translate its record nominations haul into TV wins.

Netflix won six of the 11 television awards on offer, with Amazon and Apple winning one apiece to see the streamers dominate with 73% of the wins in the small-screen categories.

It beat its 2019 performance, where The Kominsky Method helped it tie with FX to score three awards.

Last year, HBO fended off pressure from Netflix and company but wasn’t able to hold them off this year, though it was surprisingly missing nominations for shows such as I May Destroy You and the cast of Lovecraft Country.

The streaming wins come during a 12 months that saw the Covid-19 pandemic shine even more light on digital services in general. Netflix scored 20 nominations in the Globes TV categories (and 42 overall counting film) so to take six was a major achievement,

‘The Crown,’ ‘Ted Lasso,’ ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ Get Early Boosts From Globes as TV FYC Season Begins

‘The Crown,’ ‘Ted Lasso,’ ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ Get Early Boosts From Globes as TV FYC Season Begins
The “Schitt’s Creek” victory tour continued on Sunday night at the Golden Globes — but up-and-comer “Ted Lasso” also got its first taste of what will likely be many awards this year.

The biggest winner of this year’s Golden Globes had to be Netflix, of course, as the streamer’s “The Crown” won best drama and four awards overall — the most of any program — while “The Queen’s Gambit” landed limited series honors (and a limited actress win for star Anya Taylor-Joy).

That helps continue to propel “The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit” as frontrunners for this year’s Emmy Awards, even though both series launched in the fall — which might feel like a lifetime ago as campaigning gets underway.

The HFPA’s love for “The Crown” was expected, as the show had previously won the best drama Globe in 2017. It picked up another one this year thanks to a buzzy
