And here’s a small reminder of the nominations which made history:

  2. Best Foreign Language Film: Ziad Doueiri‘s The Insult became the first Lebanese film ever to be nominated for an Oscar.
  3. Best Director: Dunkirk‘s Christopher Nolan‘s first nomination ever in this category and Lady Bird‘s Greta Gerwig became the fifth woman to be nominated in this category.
  4. Best Actor in a Supporting Role: All the Money in the World‘s 88-year-old legend Christopher Plummer became the oldest nominee for acting in the Academy’s history.
  5. Best Adapted Screenplay: Logan became the first live-action superhero film to be nominated in this category.

We hope that next year will bring more beautiful surprises just like Ziad Doueiri, Joelle Touma and the team of The Insult did for Lebanon.

Oscar Predictions 2018: Dunkirk Might Take the Lead!

Just like every year, the 90th Oscar predictions take over the internet and the press depending on multiple observations including the reviews, worldwide reception, subjects of the films, and so on. But this year, the predictions are largely different from one source to another, and the truth is that no one really knows which film’s got a bigger chance than the other in every category, only because every film can win for a reason, depending on the observations. Despite this difficulty in the predictions this year, we will share with you which films we think will win the Oscar in all 24 categories.

Best Picture: Dunkirk | Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan

It’s important to know that the nominations already made history in some of the categories:

  1. Best Cinematography: Mudbound‘s Rachel Morrison became the first woman cinematographer ever to be nominated for an Oscar.
  2. Best Foreign Language Film: Ziad Doueiri‘s The Insult became the first Lebanese film ever to be nominated for an Oscar.
  3. Best Director: Dunkirk‘s Christopher Nolan‘s first nomination ever in this category and Lady Bird‘s Greta Gerwig became the fifth woman to be nominated in this category.
  4. Best Actor in a Supporting Role: All the Money in the World‘s 88-year-old legend Christopher Plummer became the oldest nominee for acting in the Academy’s history.
  5. Best Adapted Screenplay: Logan became the first live-action superhero film to be nominated in this category.

But what’s sure is that at least one of these categories will make history in the career of one of the nominees who’s the most common predicted winner: Gary Oldman for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

No to Censorship Protest in Lebanese Movie Theater!

After 10 days of screenings, panels and events, the closing ceremony of the 9th edition of Beirut Cinema Days (a.k.a Ayam Beirut Al Cinema’iya) in Lebanon wasn’t quite usual.

After receiving several bans and censorship from the Lebanese General Security for many selected films in the festival including The Beach House by Roy Dib and The Preacher by Magdy Ahmed Aly, the festival tried to raise the voice in a different way and this cinematic revolution event proved that it really deserves this title.

In the past few days, several videos of filmmakers, organizers in the festival and supporters were posted on social media inviting people to join a protest scheduled during the closing ceremony of the festival at Metropolis Cinema in Sofil Center, Ashrafieh. This event took place tonight and many cinematic supporters, professionals as well as the public gathered in Metropolis Cinema holding their signboards, each one stating a different sentence, but all of them were saying “No to censorship”.

In order to see how this really happened in a very peaceful, decent and beautiful way, check out the following video and photos taken by the organizers a while ago.

Well done Beirut Cinema Days team and Lebanese audience!

Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’… Coming this May!

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Vincent Through the Eyes of Van Gogh!

We have seen so many innovative and creative styles of films in the past few years, but this one is a mind blowing work of art in the history of cinema! The creative and incredibly talented team of Loving Vincent brought Vincent Van Gogh and his paintings back to life in a long feature film directed by Polish painter and director Dorota Kobiela and Oscar-winning producer Hugh Welchman. This film is the resulting work of a large crew, composed of 100 painters trained to work on the same method of painting, in order to create the homogeneity of the film. It is also produced by Oscar-winning studios: Breakthru Films and Trademark Films.

Loving Vincent tells the story of Vincent Van Gogh’s life through his animated paintings. It is worth mentioning that are 12 oil paintings per second in the movie.

Also read: Vermeer and Van Gogh visiting the Lebanese University

The creators are looking for talented painters to join their team, and they are inviting them to submit their art portfolio through their website.

As Van Gogh once said:

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together”

and that’s the case of this piece of art that we’re impatiently waiting for.
