'Zero Dark Thirty' banned -- unofficially -- in Pakistan

Zero Dark Thirty is set largely in Pakistan — but the citizens of that country largely aren’t able to see how their homeland is depicted in it, unless they can track down a pirated copy of the Oscar-nominated film.

EW has confirmed that Zero Dark Thirty has not been approved by Pakistan’s board of censors, and therefore has not been shown in any of the nation’s few movie theaters that play English-language films. But that’s not the whole story: according to the Associated Press, no distributor has even applied for permission to show Zero Dark Thirty in Pakistan. This means that while the movie hasn’t been officially censured by Pakistan’s government, it is unofficially unsanctioned there. DVDs of the film were being sold recently in the capital city of Islamabad — but the AP writes that rumors about a ban have driven at least two stores to stop carrying Zero Dark Thirty, while another has taken to selling it only under the counter.

Michael Moore aids detained Oscar-nominated Palestinian filmmaker

Michael Moore couldn’t save Flint, Michigan’s auto plants in the ’80s — but he did help to get Palestinian filmmaker Emad Burnat released from LAX’s detention room last night. Burnat is currently up for a Best Documentary Oscar for his film 5 Broken Cameras.

Burnat and his family arrived in Los Angeles last night in order to attend this week’s Academy Awards ceremony. But before they could exit the city’s main airport, they were “held at US immigration for about an hour and questioned about the purpose of my visit to the United States,” Burnat said in a statement. “Immigration officials asked for proof that I was nominated for an Academy Award…they told me that if I couldn’t prove the reason for my visit, my wife Soraya, my son Gibreel and I would be sent back to Turkey on the same day.”

Luckily, Burnat was able to send a text to Michael Moore, one of the Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s Documentary Branch.  READ FULL STORY

Give Maggie Simpson an Oscar! Watch nominated short 'The Longest Daycare' -- VIDEO

Can a yellow-skinned, pacifier-loving baby defeat four fierce foes — including a swoon-inducing urban fairy tale from Disney — at the Academy Awards?

We won’t know for sure until Sunday, when this year’s Oscars — including the prize for Best Animated Short Film — are handed out in Los Angeles. In the meantime, audiences can content themselves with watching that baby’s Academy-approved short film on Hulu. “The Longest Daycare” finds mute, cute Maggie Simpson grappling with her unibrowed arch-nemesis at the Ayn Rand School for Tots. Though the David Silverman-directed short originally appeared in 3-D before theatrical screenings of Ice Age: Continental Drift, you’ll have to be satisfied with this two-dimensional rendering:

Oscar 2013: The nominations revealed ...

prize_fighter1_bannerWho’s in, who’s out?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has finally settled the debate with its announcement of nominees for the 85th Academy Awards. Lincoln leads the pack with 12 nominations, followed by Life of Pi with 11.

There was a surprisingly strong showing for Beasts of the Southern Wild, which scored a directing nomination for Benh Zeitlin that few saw coming. Directing snubs for Argo‘s Ben Affleck, Zero Dark Thirty‘s Kathryn Bigelow, and Les Miserables‘ Tom Hooper does not bode well for those films going forward.

Below are the contenders for the ceremony, which will take place Feb. 24.

And here is some deeper analysis. READ FULL STORY

Oscar-winning 'Chicago' producer Martin Richards dies

Martin Richards — or “Marty,” as those in the theater community called him — died of cancer Monday in New York City. Richards won an Academy Award in 2003 for producing that year’s Best Picture, Chicago. The Oscar was the culmination of Richards’s decades-long battle to bring that Kander and Ebb musical to movie theaters; it began in 1975, when Richards produced the show’s original Broadway production.

Of course, Chicago wasn’t Richards’s only project. The prolific stage producer — born Morton Richard Klein in the Bronx — was nominated for 10 Tony Awards throughout his career, winning for La Cage aux Folles (2004 revival), The Will Rogers Follies (1991), La Cage aux Folles (original 1983 production), and Sweeney Todd (1979). Richards also produced Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and the Gregory Peck Nazi thriller, The Boys from Brazil, as well.

Here’s a clip of Richards accepting his Oscar in 2002. Note the moment when someone from the audience reminds him to thank his wife, the late Johnson & Johnson heiress Mary Lea Johnson Richards — the voice in the crowd is Hilary Swank, who famously forgot to thank her own husband when she won her first Oscar in 2000.
