The DGA announced its five nominees Tuesday in one of the most closely watched guild awards leading up to next month's Academy Awards. Cuaron is nominated for his personal black-and-white drama "Roma," Cooper for his "A Star Is Born" remake and Lee for his white supremacist tale "BlacKkKlansman."
NEW YORK (AP) — When the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards get underway Sunday night, who takes home statuettes is only a small part of the intrigue.
What the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Beverly Hills, California, ceremony lacks in gravitas it usually makes up for in freewheeling frivolity and fun. The free-flowing booze helps.
Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Favourite," a wicked blast of nasty fun, gleefully dispenses with the usual decorum of the period drama to free its powerhouse trio of actresses — Olivia Colman, Emma Stone...
Stone’s ‘hilarious and brilliant’ time on ‘The Favourite’
NEW YORK (AP) — For a festival that prides itself on remaining outside of the fray, the 56th New York Film Festival kicked off with a royal feast of savagery and scheming.
ROME (AP) — "Roma," Alfonso Cuaron's intimate, black-and-white portrait of the women who raised him in Mexico City's turbulent 1970s, has won the top prize at the 75th Venice Film Festival.

NEW YORK (AP) — The 56th New York Film Festival will feature films from the Coen brothers, Barry Jenkins and 88-year-old documentarian Frederick Wiseman.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center on Tuesday announced its main slate, including the Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or winner "Shoplifters," by Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda. Most of the festival's 30 selections will be making their United States premiere after debuting at either Cannes, Venice or Toronto.
TORONTO (AP) — Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos' movies aren't the sort that typically attract a stampede of Hollywood A-listers.
His films, which he writes with Efthymis Filippou, are deadpan, midnight-black comedies that carry out grim allegorical absurdities to extreme ends. Characters speak stiltedly in cliches while an intensifying menace envelopes them. Things get weird and then they get brutal.
Farrell and Kidman star in new.... comedy?!
CANNES, France (AP) — It's a long way from May in France to February in Los Angeles, but the Cannes Film Festival has often been a breeding ground for Oscar campaigns.
Standing ovations at Cannes, which concludes Sunday with the Palme d'Or presentation, appear likely to lead to awards consideration for a number of big names, including Adam Sandler, Nicole Kidman and Robert Pattinson.
CANNES, France (AP) — Unveiling a new chapter in her already-considerable career, Nicole Kidman has brought four projects to Cannes this year, making her almost ubiquitous at the French Riviera festival.
"I'm at that place in my life where I'm trying to pretend I'm 21 and starting my career," Kidman, who turns 50 next month, told reporters on Monday. "I want to try new things and support the filmmakers I believe in."
