The last time DGA and the Globes went 5-for-5 was for the class of 2010. David Fincher (“The Social Network”) won the Globe over Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”), Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”), David O. Russell (“The Fighter”) and Christopher Nolan (“Inception”). But Hooper nabbed the DGA and then the Oscar; the academy only snubbed Nolan in favor of Joel and Ethan Coen (“True Grit”).

The DGA and Globes rarely match perfectly,
Nelson, who trained as an actor at Juilliard, made his first big splash in 2000 with the Coens' Depression-era musical fable O Brother, Where Art Thou?, playing a dim-witted prison escapee alongside George Clooney and John Turturro.
"It's all very friendly and genial and clear. Ethan will say, 'Maybe … I don't know. Maybe pull it back ...
If you picked up the Blu-ray, you might have seen his 9-minute piece already, but it has now made its way online and offers a humorous look at the making of the Cormac McCarthy adaptation. What starts as standard Bts footage and anecdotes becomes more or less a winking troll of the Coens’ elusive nature–one we image the directors themselves found pretty funny.
Check it out below and for more on their most recent film, take a look at the VFX process of The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
After Twitter user @SamBrod said Kazan was “frustrating to watch” in “Buster Scruggs,” Kazan responded by saying, “Solid example of when not to tag an artist in your tweet about their work. … Like I am not a restaurant, this is not yelp, I don’t need to know that you found the meal overly salty.”
The Twitter user quickly apologized for the tag, writing, “Dear all, I apologize for this tweet. I did not think Zoe
My favorite films can be roughly divided into the top two films and the other eight, so seismic are the former movies’ impacts, but this should by no means discount the immense value of the rest. A few films that I couldn’t fit into this expanded fifteen but which continue to stick with me, among others: A Star Is Born, Western, and Notes on an Appearance.
Directed by Etan Cohen.
Starring Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Rebecca Hall, Rob Brydon, Steve Coogan, Ralph Fiennes and Braun Strowman.
A “humorous” take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.
If the litmus test for a solid Sherlock Holmes spoof is the absence of a “No shit, Sherlock” gag, then it’s one that Etan Cohen’s – no, not Ethan Coen – new “comedy” fails enthusiastically beyond that mere moldy zinger.
Despite all the on-paper promise of an unofficial Step Brothers sequel by way of The World’s Greatest Detective, it’s tough to recall such a hugely talented cast being wasted on so desperately little in recent memory.
The particulars of the plot escape the mind almost immediately after the curtain raises on the movie – if not before, in fact – though the hook sees Holmes (Will Ferrell) and Watson (John C.
Interestingly, my own top ten list features four foreign language films and two “kids” films. These categorizations are flawed, of course. Language makes no difference here, and anyone who considers Paddington 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to be kid-only movies is certainly close-minded. So let’s dispense with the categories and merely say that listed here are 10 gems (and five honorable mentions) that struck me as bold, original, breathtaking films

See‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ tops 2019 SAG Awards nominations for TV and (gasp!) so does ‘Ozark’
Not only were old favorites recognized this year, like “Grace and Frankie” scene-stealers Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, but brand new friends were also invited to the party in the form of “The Kominsky Method.” Since SAG Awards voters are notoriously late to the game
Along with their top 20, they also give a list of the best undistributed films of the year, from Mariano Llinás’s 14-hour epic La Flor to Jodie Mack’s gorgeous feature debut The Grand Bizarre to new films from Carlos Reygadas, Tsai Ming-liang, Lav Diaz, Roberto Minervini, and more. So, distributors take note, and check out both lists below.

"This is a very unusual film. It's told in six distinct chapters that are all Westerns, but they all have a different relationship to the genre. It's sort of like opening a box of candy or something; there are so many different kinds of treats," she says.
She further explains of the Coen brothers' writing process: ...
Shortly after “La La Land”’s awards run, Chazelle recruited Zophres for his next project, his Neil Armstrong biopic “First Man.” “It was very much like ‘La La Land.’ It was just a different subject matter, but his approach is very much the same. He knows exactly what the film is going to look like,” Zophres said at Gold Derby’s Meet the Experts: Costume Designers panel, moderated by this author (watch the exclusive video above). “He’s very much a collaborator and is very open to ideas and to meetings and discussions and meetings and show and tells. He’ll be there whenever you need him to be there.
Goldberg served as executive vice president of production at Fox, and worked most recently on the studio’s rock and roll hit “Bohemian Rhapsody,” as well as last year’s “The Greatest Showman,” “The Post” and 2016’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.”
She spent six years working at Fox, specializing in all original non-branded films, and championed “The Greatest Showman” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

At Netflix, Goldberg will report directly to Tendo Nagenda, who the streaming giant lured away from Disney earlier this year. Nagenda, a highly valued and respected production executive at Disney, was brought in under Netflix film head Scott Stuber to lead film production at Netflix.

The Simpsons: Season 30 Episode 9
Sometimes it takes a classic to make a classic. We learned in 1973 that a hero ain't nothing but a sandwich and real courage has nothing to do with a man with a gun in his hand. After 30 seasons, The Simpsons knows it's as licked as a science museum ice cream cone before it's begun but begins anyway and sees it through no matter what lunch Lady Doris or Moe may be dishing out. You rarely win, but sometimes you do. "Daddicus Finch" wins.
It's hard to be an institution when you began as a scrapper. The Simpsons has been on TV so long people forget it was condemned in the eyes of President Bush and his wife Barbara. Like Saturday Night Live, the initial revolutionary
The trio of films represented the contingent of Netflix films taking the spotlight Saturday at The Contenders NY, the biggest company grouping of the all-day event.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs from Joel and Ethan Coen had a long gestation. The filmmaking duo completed a number of other projects before turning back to Scruggs with Tim Blake Nelson in the saddle as Buster. “I like to say Buster Scruggs is a great friend, but you wouldn’t want him as an enemy,” said Nelson.
