AMOUR Wins Nearly Every Major Award at French Version of Oscars, The Césars

Amour – On the eve of the Academy Awards, Michael Haneke's meditation on death, Amour, swept the César Awards in France, taking home best film, best director, best actor and actress and best original screenplay. That means that the film with the most nominations, Camille Rewinds, and the film with the most love here at Twitch, Holy Motors, both walked away with zero awards. 9 years 25 weeks ago via theothersenhman

Best Picture Nominees 2013: …”inherently thrilling”

11:58 AM 2/11/2013 by Sara Vizcarrondo
ARGO is solid but problematic; Django Unchained is a mess of errant genres; Les Mis is bloated, bombastic and juvenile (which should make it Best Pic frontrunner); and AMOUR is already up for Best Foreign Film so why vote that?

Specialty Box Office: Quartet of Debuts Find Respectable Numbers, But They're No Match For 'Quartet'

Quartet – Despite not getting any traction this awards season, Dustin Hoffman's senior audience-skewing "Quartet" continued to find very impressive numbers at the specialty box office, which has in general been off to a slow start for newcomers this month. "Quartet" -- starring Maggie Smith and featuring a "Best Exotic"-like plot involving retired opera singers, expanded from 32 to 163 theaters in its third weekend and managed an excellent $1,149,000 gross -- averaging $7,049. 9 years 29 weeks ago via theothersenhman

Specialty Box Office: 'Amour' and 'Quartet' Lead Slow Weekend For Specialty Market

Oscars – And so it begins... The list of nominees for the 85th Academy Awards dropped today, along with our jaws in many categories. No Affleck or Bigelow? Why couldn't there be some more "Skyfall" love? But for now, we'll leave it up to you to decide the greatest injustices of the morning.

Specialty Box Office: 'Zero,' 'Amour' Lead Slew of Strong Oscar Contenders; '56 Up' Strong In Exclusive Debut – The first weekend of 2013 brought very good news to a group of films hoping to get further boosts from this Thursday's Oscar nominations, with Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" and Michael Haneke's "Amour" leading the way.

Specialty Box Office: 'Zero,' 'Amour' and 'Silver' Continue To Soar; 'Promised Land' and 'Memphis' Disappoint in Debuts

Zero Dark Thirty – While "The Hobbit," "Django Unchained" and "Les Miserables" brought a huge boost to the post-Christmas studio box office, a bunch of platform release holdovers -- namely "Zero Dark Thirty," "Amour," "The Impossible" and "Silver Linings Playbook" -- did the same for the specialty market. However, the two debuting films -- "Promised Land" and "West of Memphis" -- both underperformed.

Review: Amour (Title Can’t be Translated)

1:32 AM 12/20/2012 by Sara Vizcarrondo
