Blueprints: "The Shape of Water"

On the last week before the Oscar nominations are announced, Jorge takes a look at another of the potential screenplay contenders. This week, he explores a fight, in which one person has to speak both sides of dialogue.

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water is a fairytale about the forbidden love between a mute woman and a captive fishman. But as much as the film is about their romance, it is also about the unique friendships and relationships made by those that society has pushed to its margins for being “different”.

Let’s take a look at one of the most memorable scenes in the film, between Sally Hawkins’ hopeful and infatuated Elisa, and her closeted gay neighbor and best friend, Giles, played by Richard Jenkins. It’s a fight where Elisa not only begs him to help her save the creature, but also to be seen and understood.

Enjoy the Silence of Sally Hawkins, ‘The Shape of Water’s’ Princess Without Voice

Enjoy the Silence of Sally Hawkins, ‘The Shape of Water’s’ Princess Without Voice
“We didn’t need dialogue. We had faces!”

That line from “Sunset Boulevard” is often quoted even now, some 70 years after it was first released, but it’s rarely been more apropos than when considering Sally Hawkins’ performance in “The Shape of Water.” She plays a mute janitor in Guillermo del Toro’s fantastical romance, and though her co-stars recite some lyrical dialogue (co-written by del Toro and Vanessa Taylor), Hawkins doesn’t — nor does she need to. As the film’s “princess without voice,” she emotes, gestures, and dances her way to the most moving performance of 2017.

Like most actors and actresses whose success seems to have come overnight, Hawkins’ didn’t. She’s likely to be nominated for her second Oscar later this month — her first, for her work opposite Cate Blanchett in “Blue Jasmine,” was long overdue — but the 41-year-old has been paying her dues for more than two decades.

The Shape of Water bests Three Billboards at 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards, while Big Little Lies leads TV winners

Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy romance The Shape of Water emerged as the big winner from the 23rd Critics’ Choice Awards, scooping four awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Meanwhile, HBO’s Big Little Lies dominated the television categories, also winning four prizes.

The Shape of Water defeated Oscars frontrunner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in the majority of the categories in which they competed, though Frances McDormand beat Sally Hawkins to the Best Actress prize and Sam Rockwell was crowned Best Supporting Actor for his work in Irish filmmaker Martin McDonagh’s incendiary drama.

Elsewhere, Gary Oldman followed up his Golden Globe victory with another Best Actor prize for his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while Jordan Peele added his name firmly to the Oscar conversation with a screenplay victory for Get Out.

“The Shape of Water” wins big at the 23rd Critics’ Choice Awards

Last night, the critics portion of the precursor season came to a head with the 23rd annual Critics’ Choice Awards. Chosen by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the winners here get a nice little boost as Academy Award voting is currently wrapping up. Remember, critics aren’t members of the Academy, so there’s limited impact to be found for Oscar, but televised victories are never a bad thing. Wins here are fuel for nominations, and little more. Still, forward momentum is useful and appreciated, to say the least. For a few movies, it was a great evening, with one Guillermo del Toro helmed picture doing particularly well. The Bfca went wild (comparatively) for The Shape of Water, which led the field with four wins, to go along with entering the night as the overall nominations leader. Other multi winners were Coco, Darkest Hour, Get Out, I, Tonya, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,

Love and Danger on the ‘Water’ Front

Love and Danger on the ‘Water’ Front
Guillermo del Toro got the idea for “The Shape of Water” in 2011, but he says the project really began at age 6. That’s when he saw the 1954 movie “The Creature From the Black Lagoon,” with underwater shots of the Gill-Man reaching out toward the legs of Julie Adams as she swam. He thought it was so romantic and exciting that he assumed the two would end up together. He was shocked when they didn’t.

“I decided I would someday have to correct that,” he says.

The Fox Searchlight film somehow balances romance, fantasy and social commentary. Another feat of magic: “Shape” re-creates an elaborate world within 1962 Baltimore, on a budget of only $19.3 million. Compare that with some of the $200 million-plus budgets of the past year.

Everything about the movie is designed to be a little familiar but unfamiliar.

That starts with the first shot: Both the first and the last scenes take place underwater and they

Author: Zehra Phelan

The awards season kicked off last night at the lavish Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 75th Golden Globes ceremony.

Golden Globes 2018: The Complete Winners List

The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards kicked off Sunday at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, marking the beginning of awards season and symbolizing a new era in Hollywood.

As expected, actors and actresses wore black on the red carpet to symbolize their solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and those fighting for gender inequality in the workplace; many shared with Et the significance the Time's Up initiative has to them personally.

While the red carpet became a place for thoughtful discussion and powerful statements, it was also a place to celebrate the night's nominees. Female-led shows like Big Little Lies and Feud: Bette and Joan led the pack with six and four nominations each, while on the film side, The Shape of Water earned seven nominations. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and The Post tied with six nominations each.
