BFI Film Academy Launches Search For New Talent 

The BFI has opened up 900 placements for students aged between 16 – 19 who are looking to start their film career. Course applications have opened for the upcoming academic year beginning in September 2018. They are taking place country wide and are aimed at developing young talent and uncover emerging filmmakers who are looking for their first big break. The course provide hands-on filmmaking as well as invaluable training in direction.

Jen Sobol, BFI Film Academy Project Director said, “In just seven years the BFI Film Academy has established itself as a gold standard training and development programme and an important new talent pipeline into the UK film industry. This is the most exciting part of the process, when we throw the doors open and invite talented young people across the whole country to be part of the programme. I can’t wait to see who will be joining us this year.”

All graduates join the BFI Film Academy alumni network which gives them access to further opportunities including BAFTA mentorships and the BFI Film Academy Future Skills programme, the latter of which is a partnership with Lucasfilm. This year 30 graduates from the BFI Film Academy are working in various roles for Star Wars: Episode IX (I really want to know what they are going to call it!)

Thandie Newton, star of Solo: A Star Wars Story says, “It’s imperative that people from all backgrounds see themselves in film and one of the beautiful things about BFI Film Academy is that it gives opportunities to young people from all walks of life – the programme enables young people to enter this industry from a position of passion rather than privilege. The more people behind the scenes who bring perspectives from everywhere, the more we’ll be able to truly reflect the world through our work.”

BAFTA 2017: Full List of Winners

The 70th BAFTA Awards took place last night and amongst all of the red carpet action, trophies and glamour, there was an underlying political and social theme. Stephen Fry’s shots at the Trump administration, Southern Rail and Danny Dyer were all accurate and entertaining. Starting off with his grandmother’s saying “cop a load of this, bitches” and continued by referring to a recent episode of Who Do You Think You Are, and claimed that Prince William will be “devastated after finding out he’s related to Danny Dyer”. But I think that my favourite was during one of his take downs of Trumps, as his quipped “One of the greatest actresses of all time, only a blithering idiot would think otherwise, Meryl Streep.” Brilliant. You can see more of Stephen Fry’s jokes here.

During the ceremony, La La Land was the most successful, winning five awards, including Best Director, Best Film and Best Actress, making it even more of a front runner than before to sweep up at the Oscars. Other winners include Dev Patel for Best Supporting Actor, Viola Davis for Best Supporting Actress and Kubo and the Two Strings for Best Animated Feature, beating two Disney films.

Not too many surprises altogether this year however I didn’t quite get all of my predictions correct unfortunately. Here were mine for last night, getting four out of six, which isn’t that bad! Anyway, we’ll see if I can improve upon my guesses for the Oscars. Here’s the list of winners in full.

Golden Globe 2017 Winners

Just in case you’ve been sleeping all day due to the bad weather / Monday / tube strike, you would have missed the winners of the year’s Golden Globes. The award ceremony was hosted by Jimmy Fallon whose opening of the show was much better than what other say, although a little on the nose with the big winner of the night.

That’s right, La La Land was the big winner of last night which picked up seven awards including Best Director for Damien Chazelle, Best Lead Actor and Actress in a Comedy or Musical for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone and for Best Original Score for Justin Hurwitz. An incredible achievement for such a superb film which has been hotly tipped to sweep the awards. Not a bad start, we’#ll see how they do in the BAFTA and Oscar nominations, both of which are out very soon! Another big winner includes several Brits from The Night Manager with awards for Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie. Well freaking done!

Here’s a list of all of the winners, congratulations to you all! Looks like I’ve got quite a bit of TV to catch up on, time to hibernate.

BAFTA’s Rising Star 2017 Nominees

Award season is fully underway with The OSCARS coming up, along with the GRAMMY Awards and the Golden Globes 2017 in a matter of days. With the comes the BAFTAs who each year announce a list of rising stars they say will make an impact in the entertainment industry. Here’s their list of the 5 nominees, see what you think. Who would you vote for?

anya-taylor-joy

Anya Taylor-Joy

Anya recently starred in The Witch (2016) and Barry (2016), an early look at President Barack Obama’s life. Her new film, Split, is the latest from director M. Night Shyamalan which is due out this year and it tells the story of three teenage girls who are kidnapped by a man with a multiple personality disorder. Interesting stuff!

laia-costa

Laia Costa

Last year, Laia starred in Victoria as the title character who we first see on a night out where she first meets a man who is going to change her night and her life. The film was a technological achievement in film as it was one long continuous shot. Unlike Birdman, which faked that  technique, Victoria was really done like that and they shot it all the way through 4 times. It’s quite a film to be involved with, and her performance was perfect. We’ll see what Laia does next.

lucas-hedges-screening-kill-the-messenger-01

Lucas Hedges

Lucas stars in Manchester by the Sea, a movie which has the potential to sweep up a lot of the awards this season. It’s the perfect way for Lucas to showcase his talent in which he gives a sterling performance as the young boy who has to be taken care of by his uncle after his father dies. He’s also had small roles in Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest Hotel.

ruth-negga

Ruth Negga

Ruth, who has in the past appeared in World War Z and Agents of Shield, is hotly anticipated to be huge after her performance in the upcoming Loving. She stars with Joel Edgerton in a story of an interracial couple who challenge the anti-miscegenation laws in Virginia. A powerful sounding story, plus she stars in the TV series Preacher.

tom-holland

Tom Holland

Probably the most well-known of the nominees, Tom was cast as Spider-Man for the characters introduction into the MCU. He’s since appeared in Captain America: Civil War and has shot his own solo film. But besides all the huge blockbuster action of Marvel, Tom has also appeared in The Impossible and Wolf Hall. Not bad for an almost 21 year old with a baby face!

You can vote for your favourite star here and be in for a chance to win tickets to the BAFTAs.

Keep. It. Reel.

BAFTA nominations 2015

Well,  we’re finally at award season and the first proper nominations for a major event in 2015 have been announced. BAFTA 2015 is taking place in a months time on the 8th February. So plenty of time to get thinking about who will win what!

bafta 2015

The fantastically quirky and wonderful Grand Budapest Hotel has received a surprising 11 nods, who’d have thought that a film by Wes Anderson could do so well at the BAFTAs? We’ll see how the film does on the night. Other bits of interesting news include Mr. Turner being mostly overlooked and The Imitation Game hasn’t done quite as well as The Theory of Everything.
