85th Annual Academy Awards - ShowJennifer Lawrence si impiedicatul pe scari

Jennifer Lawrence si impiedicatul pe scari

pentru orice femeie, unul dintre cele mai mari cosmaruri este sa te impiedici in rochie/ tocuri in timp ce urci pe o scena.

i s-a intimplat lui Jennifer Lawrence fix cind se indrepta catre scena de unde ridica prima ei statueta Oscar – actrita in rol principal pentru Silver Linings Playbook.

mi-ar placea sa poata sa depaseasca aceasta intimplare, sa nu se opreasca – de cite ori se va gindi la statueta ei – si la rusinea pe care a simtit-o.

rochia Dior couture a fost de vina. stiu ca e deja in toate topurile la categoria cea mai bine imbracata, dar mie rochia asta mi se pare o varza. cum nu inteleg nevoia actritelor de a fi pe genul printesa in loc sa fie femeie adevarata, intr-o rochie eleganta care sa nu te arate impaiata.

uitati-va bine la rochie si la straturile de volane din fusta. fix ca o varza, cu multe foi. (da, stiu, e un sacrilegiu, ma leg de Dior. sa ma ierte)

nu e insa intimplator ca Jennifer a purtat o creatie Dior. la inceputul saptaminii a aparut campania pentru Miss Dior a carei imagine este. o colaborare anuntata in toamna anului trecut

actorii la repetitii pt Oscar (foto)

producatorii Oscarurilor s-au straduit mult pentru aceasta editie si au implicat in show jumatate din actorii de la Hollywood.

in saptamina oscarurilor, joia, pe la 14 ora locala incepe repetitia generala pentru ceremonia de duminica.
actorii vin cuminti si disciplinati, imbracati sport in jeans si hanorac sau chic cu rochite si stiletto, dar departe de aparitiile lor spectaculoase de duminica.

iata citeva fotografii de la repetitiile de joi.

TimBurtonSketchcum se face PR la Oscar

cum se face PR la Oscar

Hollywood Reporter l-a invitat pe Tim Burton sa deseneze cum se vede covorul roshu de la Oscar din perspectiva lui:)

***
cel mai bun loc pentru PR la Oscar e pe covorul rosu. publicistii sunt Dumnezei acolo, iar vedetele se impart in doua categorii – cei care  ei i-au angajat pe publicisti si cei care sunt bucurosi ca au un publicist.

adica, Meryl  Streep vs Jennifer Lawrence.

cum va prindeti de smekerie? in functie de cit de devreme ajung pe covorul roshu. daca vin cu minim o ora inainte de debutul ceremoniei inseamna ca vor sa faca “press” adica sa dea interviuri, daca ajung exact cind incepe ceremonia, cu siguranta o fac pentru ca nu-i intereseaza aparitiile la televiziunile din lumea intreaga. (pentru ca nu au nimic de promovat, sau au facut asta de prea multe ori)

covorul roshu de la Oscar cu cele 8 opriri speciale pentru foto se parcurge intr-un interval de timp intre 45 de min si o ora si jumatate.
actritele ajung obosite deja in sala, dupa ce au stat pe tocuri incomode o ora jumatate pe covorul roshu.

*
in 2001 am fost la ceremonia de decernare a premiilor Oscar si imi amintesc ca de joi dupa amiaza, cind se deschidea perimetrul pentru jurnalisti, reprezentatii televiziunilor din lumea intreaga incercau sa-si marcheze un loc al lor… cu pungi cu sticle, ca pe vremea lui Ceausescu la coada la lapte.

***
in presa internationala sunt doua articole foarte interesante despre ce nu se vede pe covorul roshu. unul despre publicisti si cit de mult muncesc in ziua respectiva in Hollywood Reporter, si altul despre cum fac jurnalistii sa obtina declaratii puternice in doar citeva secunde de la actorii antrenati sa nu declare nimic – in New York Times

in 2008 cind Ellen Degeneres a prezentat ceremonia Oscarurilor, printr-o minune care e dincolo de negociere, a putut inregistra partea de culise. de repetitii, dar si cum arata cabina, camera verde si tot backstage-ul.

iata filmul, desigur facut cu glumele care sunt parte din imaginea ei publica.

oscar_ballot_a_lcum arata un buletin de vot la Oscar?

cum arata un buletin de vot la Oscar?

daca v-ati intrebat vreodata cum arata un buletin de vot la Oscar, iata-l:)

el apartine unui membru al academiei putin suparat pe nominalizari , votant care printre altele crede ca Argo e o stupizenie de film:)

dincolo de amuzamentul situatiei (buletinul a fost facut public de Hollywood Reporter, fara sa spuna cine e votantul), daca n-ati vazut niciodata un asemenea buletin, trebuie sa stiti ca la fel se intimpla si la noi la premiile Gopo, de exemplu.

***
zilele trecute am primit mail cum ca si anul acesta votez pentru Gopo si ma intrebau daca vreau sa votez electronic sau in print, verificindu-mi apoi adresa unde sa-mi trimita dvd-urile cu toate filmele care vor fi nominalizate.

si la premiile Gopo cei care numara voturile sunt Pricewaterhousecoopers si, la fel ca la Oscar, doar cei care au centralizat voturile stiu cistigatorii.

eu votez electronic, nu mazgalesc nimic pe buletinul de vot. promit:)

musical oscarmusicaluri la Oscar 2013

musicaluri la Oscar 2013

momentul de atractie al editiei Oscar 2013 va fi un omagiu adus unui deceniu de musicaluri.

vor participa in show, atentie!, Catherine Zeta Jones, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Barbra Streisand, Shirley Bassey si desigur echipa de la Mizerabilii – Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman si, paziti-va urechile, Russel Crowe.

imi place Jackman, Hathaway ma lasa indiferenta, Crowe e un barbat misto – asa cum e el, nu foarte cizelat -, dar in roluri in care face actorie nu opereta; filmul insa nu mi-a placut deloc, dar deloc. si am vazut musicalul Mizerabilii, live, frumos, spectaculos pe scena. fisiit pe ecran.

ma enerveaza insa ca acest moment cu musicalurile deceniului e ca un covor rosu sa le dea cit mai multe Oscaruri celor din echipa Mizerabilii. adica inseamna good PR pt ei si pentru nisa musicalurilor, dar cum mie nu mi-a placut filmul…:)

oricum ar fi, ceremonia Oscarurilor de anul asta se anunta spectaculoasa pentru ca au chemat jumatate de Hollywood sa se suie pe scena.

Oscarurile vor fi transmise live de HBO de la ora 3, duminica seara.

the-people-vs-larry-flynt-144526Erotism la Oscar

Erotism la Oscar

in week endul S!MPA special Oscar, putin erotism nu strica.

(mai ales ca postarea mea cu filme erotice de facut cadou continua sa faca un trafic impresionant, desi este despre filme de arta:) )

iata 3 dintre filmele prezente la Oscaruri si care au avut secvente la limita dintre ertotism si pornografie.
sau, oricum, secvente pentru care parintii din Ro isi trimit copiii dupa un pahar cu apa…

***
din trimisul asta dupa paharul cu apa li se trag multe adolescentilor si adultilor de mai tirziu. poate daca generatia noastra intelege ca sex-ul e parte din viata noastra la fel ca si mincarea, erotismul va fi mai mult decit o fotografie care circula pe facebook si spune ceva de genul “conversatia e cel mai erotic lucru”.

no no no, conversatia e doar inceputul.

***

People vs Lary Flint
Milos Forman regizor, Woody Harrelson actor intr-o combinatie ravasitoare. ma rog, parte ade erotism a asigurat-o Courtney Love.
doua nominalizari in 97, cel mai bun regizor, cel mai bun actor
daca n-ati vazut filmul, va rog.
e unul dintre exemplele ca un film bun sta in picioare si la mai bine de 15 ani de cind a fost lansat.

Brokeback Mountain
Cu povestea de dragoste dintre cei doi cowboy s-au si promovat in campania pentru Oscaruri, mizind tocmai pe comunitatea gay foarte puternica in america (nu ca la noi, unde se opreste un film multi premiat pentru ca… e cu lesbiene.brr)

Black Swan
in aceeasi directie, secventa visului – cu Mila Kunis si Natalie Portman in asternuturi si cu secventa in care Portman se simte bine de una singura. Portman a si cistigat Oscarul pentru acest rol.

Rochiile mele de Oscar

Moda de Oscar e parte din brandingul ceremoniei, dar adevarul e ca acest eveniment implica asa o audienta si o desfasurare de forte incit look-ul doamnelor e foarte foarte important pe covorul rosu.

iata totul preferintelor mele in materie de rochii de Oscar. dupa cum stiti, rochiile tip sirena sau tip “printesa” nu sunt pe gustul meu in general, asa ca nici de data asta nu apar in clasament.

Julia Roberts – in anul acela, 2001, am vazut-o de aproape, am fost la ceremonie. Rochia era superba, dar ce nu se vede in nicio fotografie sunt… urechile clapauge; mereu cind o vad in rochia asta imi aduc aminte ca ma intrebam avind-o in fata “de ce naiba si-a prins parul asa?”
au fotografiat-o si filmat-o corespunzator, si acest mic defect e invizibil peste ani.


Apoi Charlize Theron, pentru eleganta simplitatii.


si undeva pe aproape ca stil Uma Thurman

plus, lectia de minimalism (mai putin feminintate insa) data de Gwynet Paltrow anul trecut in CK


dar pentru mine, THE DRESS e de la o editie a Globurilor de aur  si e aceasta: simpla, feminina, nu te poarta ea pe tine, ci o porti tu. mi-nu-na-ta.

judi denchOscarul din perspectiva cistigatorului

Oscarul din perspectiva cistigatorului

pentru special Oscar S!MPA si citeva recomandari de carti.

mai intii un fragment dintr-o carte minunata Judi Dench and furthermore, ca sa simtiti putin din cum se vad Oscarurile pe dinauntru; cind esti cistigator.

“Robin Williams was presenting the award, and when he looked down to read the name, Michael squeezed my arm and said, ‘jude, you’ve got it’ just before we heard him say, ‘There is nothing like a Dame.’ he said he could tell by the look on Robin’s face. All I can remember after that is looking at Michael, standing up and kissing him, but I don’t remember walking up all those steps.
The only other thing I remember is Robin Williams curtseying; I don’t remember the speech, nor anything about how I got off the stage.
I Remember crying in a lift, completely overcome, and then meeting the immensely tall James Coburn, who had won Best Supporting Actor for Affliction, and having my picture taken with him, and then with Gwyneth, who won best actress.
(…) All the world’s press asking, ‘Why aren’t you waering diamonds?’ I said, “I’m not a diamond girl, I’m afraid.’

(…)
The next day Michael and Finty (nota mea , sotul si fiica) went home, but I had to fly to New York, where Amy’s View was due to open on Broadway. I was wandering about the airport at Los Angeles, and suddenly on air hostess came up to me and said,”whould you like to get on the plane early?’ So I said , would be very nice, anad she aid ‘well, you might find it tricky otherwise’
(…)
They put me in a first class seat, right at the front of the plane. The only thing that we had not thought of was that every single person had to file past me as they came on board. So there was a lot of shaking hands and taking photographs, until I felt I had met the whole of the plane.
I went to sleep on the floght, and when I woke up there were a lot of tick-on notes on the rug over me.”

cartea Judi Dench & furthermore nu a fost tradusa la noi, dar o puteti cumpara pe Kindle sau audio book de aici.

dintre cartile biografice ale actorilor care au primit un Oscar recomand din suflet

Al Pacino, in dialog cu Lawrence Grobel ( un minunat portret al actorului facut doar din tehnica interviului, cu interviuri realizate de-a lungul multor ani, dar si un manual despre tehnica interviului pentru cei care vor sa invete jurnalism)
Alan Alda – Sensul vietii intr-un pahar cu apa – despre actorie si lupta cu tine ca sa fii mai bun in meseria ta, scrise si spuse cu garda jos.

waltzprinz de Oscar

prinz de Oscar

in fiecare an, inainte de ceremonia Oscarurilor, nominalizatii se intilnesc la un prinz informal, de imprietenire.

pentru Oscar 2013 , prinzul s-a intimplat ieri.

iata citeva fotografii.

am sa incep cu domnul Joaquin Phoenix pentru ca am si o veste buna atasata. doamna din fotografie e sora lui, ea l-a insotit la prinz, deci… mai avem o speranta.

 

 

continuam cu domnul Denzel Washington, pe acelasi criteriu important: domn pe care l-as lua acasa

pentru audienta feminina, inca doi domni cu priza la public (doresc sa spun ca lui Bradley Cooper ii sta mai bine tuns si sper ca look-ul asta e pentru un film, nu pentru ca asa i se pare lui ca e frumusel)

 

si-acum doua rochii dragutze

 

iar pentru sfirsit THE ACTOR, Dlul Waltz

 

ceremonia Oscarurilor are loc pe 24 februarie, mai avem timp sa ne distram si sa pariem pina atunci pe cistigatori.

oscar-1-300x300ce-au zis nominalizatii la Oscar

ce-au zis nominalizatii la Oscar

cel mai mult la oscaruri (nominalizari si ceremonie) imi plac reactiile celor implicati. pentru ca noi ne imaginam ca actorii, regizorii, producatorii sunt niste supra oameni si sunt neclintiti in succesul sau ratarile lor.

ei bine, si ei se imbraca la fel cu pantalonii – cite un crac pe rind – , iar reactiile lor fac toti banii.
sigur cau unii nu vor sa coboare garda jos in faza nominalizarilor si dau un comunicat politicos, dar o sa-i vedem la ceremonie in cele citeva secunde inaintea deschiderii plicului- sub presiunea emotiilor o sa fie cu sufletul la vedere.

ceremonia este pe 24 februarie.

iata reactiile pe care le-am gasit:)

Hugh Jackman, lead actor in ‘Les Miserables’

“I hadn’t planned to listen live to the announcements, but when I got into the car this morning to go to work, the driver had the nominations streaming as they were being broadcast. To be honest, it’s very exciting but all a bit surreal, and it hasn’t fully sunk in yet. This is a brilliant awards year that has been defined by an eclectic list of stories that have been told by incredibly talented and courageous filmmakers, and it’s an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as the other nominees in the best actor category. Having hosted the show, I have seen so many different sides of the Oscars, but to be an actual nominee is something I never would have dreamed possible.”

Denzel Washington, lead actor in ‘Flight’

“‘Flight’ was one of the most challenging roles I’ve ever had in my career, and it was an honor to be directed by Robert Zemeckis. It’s always nice to be asked back to the show, and it will be fun to share the evening with our nominated screenwriter John Gatins.”

Alan Arkin, supporting actor in ‘Argo’

“I am, of course, very excited about the nomination this morning. Ben Affleck is an amazing director, and I am so happy that ‘Argo’ was recognized in seven categories!”

Jacki Weaver, supporting actress in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

“I arrived here from Australia just yesterday and this was the last thing I expected. I turned on TV this morning – I couldn’t sleep from being jet-lagged – and couldn’t believe it and said something very unprintable to myself! I think the film is very identifiable even if you don’t have those exact problems. We know people, we are related people as neighbors who have them. There are issues we can all identify with — broken hearts, mental illness, sports as religion. I was recently interviewed by a British journalist, and he wanted to talk about the mental illness in the movie and. I wondered to him, ‘This film is very American. Do you think Brits and Australians are going to get it?’ He said, ‘Oh my God, yes. The themes are universal.’ I’m so proud of this movie.”

 Emmanuelle Riva -leading actress in Amour

“I am truly happy, touched, and honored to receive, today in New York, a nomination for the role of Anne in Amour by Michael Haneke. For me, it is an immense gift, at this stage of my life, to be chosen by my sisters and brothers, for what I do as an actress. I never thought, while working throughout the years in Europe and France, that one day, i would cross the Atlantic Ocean, come to the United States, and be nominated. It is quite surreal for me. Shooting Amour with Michael Haneke was a complete joy for me, as I felt an absolute trust in him and we were in complete synch. Michael is the very music of his own film.” –

Best Supporting Actress, Helen Hunt

“I was deeply deeply asleep when the news came in this morning and the dog was the first one to get celebratory love from me and my boyfriend! I’m really really happy and feel this is a good sign that people like the spirit this character embodies. This film is definitely counter-programming to a lot of the pain and harshness in the world. It’s too bad that John [Hawkes] wasn’t recognized, but that doesn’t take away from the brilliance of his performance one bit.”

Best Supporting Actor, Robert De Niro

“I am very pleased that the Academy has chosen to honor the many individuals who were a part of ‘Silver Linings Playbook.'” –

Best Actress, Naomi Watts

“This was a complete surprise. For the other announcements this season I was in NYC, no problem… I had a proper full night of sleep. There’s something about this one, being in L.A., that creates a lot of angst! I had interruptions of sleep all night because of the kids, as if I wasn’t restless enough, and each time I woke up I kept thinking, “It’s not going to happen.’ BAFTA didn’t give us love this week, and I thought they were making the Oscar announcements at 5 a.m. so at ten after, I thought, ‘They would have called by now right?’ But my publicist texted and said, ‘They haven’t made the announcements yet!’ I was super lucky too that my name was mentioned first. Usually I’m at the end of lists. Overall, it’s very thrilling, especially in a year with so many incredible performances.”

Best Supporting Actress, Anne Hathaway
“It’s a wonderful morning. I’m still jet-lagged on Europe time because I spent the holidays there, so I’ve been up for a few hours already unsuccessfully trying to fall back asleep. It’s such an honor to be a part of a piece of work that has spread so much love throughout the world. I worked with a fearless cast and was so inspired by them every day. I sent Hugh [Jackman] an email. It’s also a bittersweet morning for all of us because [Tom Hooper]’s our captain, and there’s no way I’m on the phone with you right now without his influence in my life. He’s really happy for us, which is a great feeling.” —

Best Actress, Jennifer Lawrence
“I thought I would wake up, but I didn’t. My parents spent the night at my house, and they came in and kissed me on the forehead and told me about all the nominations for Silver Linings.”

Tim Burton – Best Animated Feature, ‘Frankenweenie’
“Frankenweenie is a very personal film for me. The idea of telling a feature length version was in the back of my mind for many years. Stop Motion was the perfect medium for this project, and one I’ve always loved for its expressiveness and dimensionality. I’ve worked with so many incredible artists: animators, cast members, set builders, and puppet makers, all who have helped bring this film to life one frame at a time. I’m so honored that the Academy has recognized this film as one of its nominees.”

Best Director, Michael Haneke
“I am very happy and gratified by the Oscar nominations that “Amour” has received today, and that the voting members of the Academy have taken the film so strongly to their hearts. It is fulfilling to discover that a film has found the audience and critical acclaim that “Amour” has garnered. I have been very fortunate on both those fronts, but it is especially rewarding to discover that a film has found favor among one’s industry peers who know, in particular, the effort that goes into getting a film – any film – made. I am also especially happy for all the people who made “Amour” with me. It is a joyous occasion for us all. Many thanks.” –

Best Director, Ang Lee

“I am deeply honored and frankly a little overwhelmed by all of the nominations that ‘Life of Pi’ has received this morning. So many talented people gave everything they had to this film, both in front of and behind the camera, and to see all of them receive this kind of recognition is something I am incredibly grateful for.”

Best Director, David O. Russell
“I’m beyond grateful, since I didn’t know what to expect. I’m especially over the moon for my actors. The fact that Bob (Robert De Niro) and Jacki Weaver were nominated is amazing.”

Best Cinematography, -Seamus McGarvey for “Anna Karenina”

“The director of the film I’m currently working on just texted me. We had a $100 bet that I wouldn’t get nominated, but he texted me that he’s $100 richer! I’m over the moon!”

mihai malaimare jrMihai Malaimare Jr la un virf de pantof de Oscar

Mihai Malaimare Jr la un virf de pantof de Oscar

S-au dat premiile criticii americane de film (The National Society of Film Critics) si intre toate numele acelea mari – Haneke la regizor si cel mai bun film, Daniel Day Lewis,Matthew McConaughey, Amy Adams si Emmanuelle Riva la actori, la imagine e un roman cistigator Mihai Malaimare Jr pentru The Master.

asta e primul motiv de mindrie, dar daca te uiti mai atent la premii si la numarul de voturi din dreptul fiecarui nominalizat, indiferent de categorie, vezi ca Mihai Malaimare Jr a avut cele mai multe – 60, il urmeaza Daniel Day Lewis cu 59.

dragi colegi jurnalisti, cred ca trebuie sa incepeti sa pregatiti profile inteligente despre Mihai Malaimare Jr pentru ca pe 10 ianuarie el va fi nominalizat la Oscar, iar in februarie va cistiga statueta.

de mic ii placeau aparatele de fotografiat. iata dovada:)

cum am ajuns in posesia acestei fotografii puteti citi aici si v-as ruga sa o faceti pentru ca vorbeste simplu si emotionant de dragostea tatalui lui, dl Mihai Malaimare, pentru juniorul sau.

Tom-HanksCloud Atlas a pierdut o nominalizare la Oscar

Cloud Atlas a pierdut o nominalizare la Oscar

Academia americana de film a anuntat lista scurta pentru nominalizarile la Oscar pentru make-up si hair stilism; ele sunt in ordine alfabetica:

“Hitchcock”
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”
“Les Misérables”
“Lincoln”
“Looper”
“Men in Black 3”
“Snow White and the Huntsman”

din aceste 7 nominalizari , membrii academiei care au in job description make-up si hair stil vor alege pe 10 ianuarie, dupa ce au vizionat cite 10 min din filmele de pe short list, cele 3 nominalizari finale.
***

dar, mi se pare o mare nedreptate ca nu au nominalizat si Cloud Atlas cu super transformarile lui Tom Hanks sau Halle Berry (de fapt toti cei 5 care au trecut prin 6 povesti diferite sunt genial transformati).
