Oscar Predictions 2012: Who Will Win?
Uggie, the adorable Jack Russell terrier from "The Artist," has been stealing the Oscar season spotlight not only from his co-stars, but also from his fellow canines, particularly Blackie, the unsung hero of Martin Scorsese's "Hugo."
Now Scorsese is a raging bulldog, calling out Dog News Daily's First Annual Golden Collar Awards in the pages of the Los Angeles Times for snubbing the "handsome" Doberman Blackie, who plays the attack dog of Sacha Baron Cohen's bumbling train station officer to great effect. While Uggie received two nominations in "Best Dog in a Theatrical Film" category, the imposing Blackie got zilch. Get More »
Will actual film -- you know, the 35mm kind of stuff -- be little more than a novelty by 2015?
That's what they say, which means digital filmmaking may be poised to become the norm in Hollywood, a transition that's already spurning much debate and discussion (not to mention lamentation). Does digital take the "art" out of filmmaking? Is digital making it impossible to discern the real deal from the amateur shooting in his backyard? And what the heck does James Cameron mean with "You can't shoot 3-D on film?" Get More »
When Micheal Gondry put together the cult comedy "Be Kind Rewind" a few years ago, he probably didn't anticipate kicking off an entire internet movement. But that's just what happened -- today Gondry has decided to join in the fun by creating his own "swede" version of Martin Scorsese's classic film "Taxi Driver."
Hey, you know what they say: If you can't beat 'em, go crazy and shoot 'em. Get More »

Have you ever wanted to show all your friends and co-workers how eclectic you are but didn't have an infographic lying around to prove it? Well, Martin Scorsese does not have that problem anymore.
The Academy Award-winning director has gone out of his way to diversify his output over the years, and Fast Company has created a mind-boggling image charting the man's quest to become an artistic eight-headed hydra.
Titled "A Man For All Genres," we get all the major Scorsese features, shorts, documentaries, TV work and commercials represented, from his debut feature "Who's That Knocking At My Door" through his outstanding new 3-D kid pic "Hugo." There may even be a gangster movie or two littered between those. Musicals? Check. Romantic Dramas? Check. Twisted Comedies? Check. Gangstas? Check Check Check Check Check… Get More »
One of the bright spots over the Thanksgiving weekend was the release of Martin Scorsese's "Hugo," a loving ode to the power of film, which brought in a solid box office rake in somewhat limited release while also garnering praise from critics already talking about the film's Oscar chances.
But while the movie deals with cinema's past, a new interview with Deadline proves that Scorsese is far more concerned with cinema's future.
Even if he does wish that "Taxi Driver" had been in 3-D. Get More »
With Martin Scorsese's family film "Hugo" charming audiences of all ages, the fidgety director's old penchant for probing the psyches of psychos seems consigned to the '70s, along with giant collars and non-ironic mustaches.
Marty is now far more interested in giving us warm feelings in our tummies than in stabbing us repeatedly with a shiv.
