LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Roma" director Alfonso Cuaron has won the top honor from the Directors Guild of America and solidified his spot as the Oscar front-runner.
Cuaron won out over Spike Lee for "BlacKkKlansman," Bradley Cooper for "A Star Is Born," Peter Farrelly for "Green Book" and Adam McKay for "Vice" at the 71st DGA Awards Saturday night in Los Angeles.
Since 1948, there has been only seven times that the DGA winner did not take the Academy Award for directing.
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — "An Elephant Sitting Still" won the top prize Saturday night at the Golden Horse Awards, the Chinese-language version of the Oscars.
The film, whose director, Hu Bo, committed suicide before its release, upset the highly touted martial-arts epic "Shadow," by veteran director Zhang Yimou. Zhang won best director for "Shadow."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Irrfan Khan is a Bollywood star and Hollywood chameleon, who has bounced between the two with ease for decades, working with everyone from Mira Nair to Wes Anderson and Ang Lee and stealing scenes in both Oscar-winners ("Slumdog Millionaire") and blockbusters ("Jurassic World") alike. But all that's been put on hold as he undergoes treatment in London for a neuroendocrine tumor, a rare form of cancer.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Katie Holmes is a single mom raising a daughter and that's the subject of her feature film directorial debut, "All We Had."
The 37-year-old actress stars alongside 18-year-old Stefania Owen in the film about a mother who finds herself living in a car with her daughter and looking for a new start. Holmes said it's a specific story but one she can relate to.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kicking off a five-film franchise spun off from the Harry Potter universe, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" debuted to a healthy $74.4 million this weekend. The $180 million production benefited from lingering Harry Potter goodwill, but failed to reach the heights of those films in its first weekend.
"Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk " is not a war movie in the traditional sense. There are battle scenes, and brothers in arms banter, sure, but like its pioneering technology, on a pure story level "Billy Lynn's" also pushes the boundaries of what we can expect from this genre.
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Ang Lee believes the new technology that made for hyper-realistic action in "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" is worth trying again.
So much so the two-time Oscar-winning director will use the faster frames-per-second format in his next project, the boxing movie "Thrilla in Manila."
NEW YORK (AP) — Mixed reviews greeted Ang Lee's long anticipated "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" at the New York Film Festival on Friday night, casting further doubts over the promise of Hollywood's latest technological savior: high-frame rate filming.
NEW YORK (AP) — Three films in this year's New York Film Festival certainly qualify Kristen Stewart as a workaholic, but the actress doesn't think that's such a bad thing.
"Oh yeah, I'm totally addicted, man... I get super obsessed with stuff, you know, and which is to a fault. But it's served me well," said Stewart.
NEW YORK (AP) — Ang Lee's 3-D, high-frame rate drama "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" will premiere at the New York Film Festival.
Lincoln Center's Film Society announced the selection Monday, giving a festival landing spot to one of the fall's most distinct releases. Lee also premiered his previous film, the 3-D "Life of Pi," at the New York Film Festival in 2012.
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — In "Sex and the City," Sarah Jessica Parker's wardrobe was all about the look and the label. In "Divorce," her new HBO comedy series, it's more about emotion.
Parker, back on HBO a decade after starring as the single Carrie on "Sex and the City," plays a wife and mother who decides to end her marriage. She stars opposite Thomas Haden Church.

NEW YORK (AP) — F. Scott Fitzgerald estimated that less than six people had ever fully grasped "the whole equation" of the movie business. James Schamus would have made it half a dozen.
Schamus is, somehow, equal parts film executive (he ran Focus Features for 12 years), academic (he's taught film theory at Columbia for more than 20 years) and filmmaker (he's Ang Lee's near-constant collaborator and screenwriter). Now, at 56, he's adding first-time director to his...
