Edward Shearmur (‘Escape at Dannemora’ composer) wanted his score to convey how ‘everyone is trapped’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Composer Edward Shearmur was eager to work on “Escape at Dannemora” because it was “asking for a different approach musically” than much of what he had worked on before. After years of scoring comedies and family entertainment, the music veteran wanted to “do something that had a little darkness to it.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Shearmur above.

The Showtime limited series tells the true story of two convicted murderers (Benicio del Toro and Paul Dano) who escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York in 2015 with the help of a married prison employee (Patricia Arquette) who was sexually involved with both of them. All seven episodes were directed by Ben Stiller.

The music for the series was “about texture and tone more than anything else,” Shearmur explains. He wanted to create a feeling that the environment of Dannemora was

“I should get a few ribs taken out, because I’ll be in a corset for the rest of my life.”

Helena Bonham Carter – make that Dame Helena Bonham Carter – has worn her share of waist-cinching lingerie in independent period pieces since breaking out in the mid-‘80s as Lucy Honeychurch in “A Room with a View” and as the title royal in “Lady Jane.”

The twice-Oscar-nominated actress is blessed with an English rose complexion, a cheeky sense of humor and no filter when she speaks her mind, which has served her well especially while voicing characters in such animated films as “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” and “Corpse Bride,” one of seven films she has starred in that were directed by her former partner and father of her two children, Tim Burton.

Triple double: Sandy Powell nabs 2 costume design Oscar bids for the 3rd time

Triple double: Sandy Powell nabs 2 costume design Oscar bids for the 3rd time
Sandy Powell‘s greatest enemy is herself. For the third time in her career, the three-time Oscar-winning costume designer has received two nominations in the same year, for “The Favourite” and “Mary Poppins Returns.”

Powell first competed against herself 20 years ago for “Shakespeare in Love” and “Velvet Goldmine,” winning for the former. Three years ago, she nabbed double bids for her sartorial work in “Carol” and “Cinderella,” losing to Jenny Beavan for “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Since the academy eliminated the separate black-and-white and color costume design categories 51 years ago, no one has earned more double bids than Powell.

This year, the prolific designer is up against Mary Zophres (“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”), Ruth E. Carter (“Black Panther”) and Alexandra Byrne (“Mary Queen of Scots”). In our super early winner predictions, Powell is tipped to triumph for her creations in “The Favourite.”

How many Oscar filmmakers will invade the 2018 Emmys? Lonergan and Fincher and Boyle – oh my!

How many Oscar filmmakers will invade the 2018 Emmys? Lonergan and Fincher and Boyle – oh my!
Emmy voters often love Oscar winning movie stars like Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”), Jessica Lange (“American Horror Story”), and many more. And this year could see more Oscar champs claim TV’s biggest prize, including Al Pacino (“Paterno”) and Penelope Cruz (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace”). But as television programming continues to expand with cable and streaming the small screen has become a playground for Oscar favorites behind the camera as well. So how many this year will make the cut?

David Fincher has been nominated for two Oscars for Best Director (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “The Social Network”), and he’s already an Emmy winner for directing the premiere episode of “House of Cards.” But while that political drama sits out this Emmy cycle (its sixth and final season won’t premiere until later this year), Fincher has another Netflix series in the running: “Mindhunter,

‘The Alienist’ deserves to win Emmys across the board, according to 53% of our readers

‘The Alienist’ deserves to win Emmys across the board, according to 53% of our readers
The 10-episode mystery series “The Alienist” concludes on March 26. Will it be remembered by the Emmys when the TV academy votes this summer? Our readers hope so. More than half of the respondents in our recent poll (53%) think the TNT limited series deserves to win across the board. Do you agree? Scroll down to the bottom of this post for our complete poll results.

The Alienist” is based on the 1994 novel by Caleb Carr and follows the title character, Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Bruhl), a psychologist in late-19th century New York City pioneering the field of criminal profiling. Along with an NYPD secretary (Dakota Fanning) and a newspaper illustrator (Luke Evans), he investigates a serial killer targeting poor street children. The series’s executive producers include Emmy winner Cary Joji Fukunaga (“True Detective“), Oscar winner Eric Roth (“Forrest Gump”) and Oscar nominees Hossein Amini (“The Wings of the Dove

Emmy spotlight: Will ‘The Alienist’ repeat the success of Cary Joji Fukunaga’s last murder mystery ‘True Detective’?

TNT’s “The Alienist” follows the investigation into a series of grisly murders that haunt a team of investigators. In that sense it’s not unlike HBO’s anthology “True Detective.” The first season of that drama won 5 Emmys out of 12 nominations in 2014, including one for Cary Joji Fukunaga‘s direction. Now Fukunaga is an executive producer and writer for “The Alienist,” so will he return to the Emmy race? If so he’ll be migrating to new categories: his season of “True Detective” was entered as a drama at the Emmys, but “The Alienist” is expected to compete as a limited series.

Apart from Fukunaga’s participation and similarities in tone, “The Alienist” is a quite different series, but it might appeal to many of the same television academy members who voted for “True Detective” or other crime series like “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Night Of.” Where season one

For Detective Harry Hole (Fassbender), the murder of a young woman on the first snow of the winter feels like anything but a routine homicide case in his district. From the start of the investigation, The Snowman has personally targeted him with taunts—ones that continue to accompany each new vicious murder.

’45 Years’: Charlotte Rampling’s Near Brushes With Oscar

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

British actress Charlotte Rampling has been appearing on film for five decades. Over the course of her 50-year career, Rampling has solidified her iconic status, yet the 69-year-old actress has never been nominated for an Oscar. This year, however, she may have her best shot in the romantic drama 45 Years.

Rampling’s performance as a wife whose 45th wedding anniversary is disrupted by a potential life-changing letter from an unexpected sender earned her the Silver Bear award for best actress at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival. Rampling’s costar, Tom Courtenay, also won the Silver Bear and the film itself was nominated for the Golden Bear.

This is far from Rampling’s first appearance in a film that has received love from critics and awards voters, as the star’s career features several occasions in which her films garnered Oscar attention but Rampling herself was left out.

"The enjoyment of a work of art, the acceptance of an irresistible illusion, constituting, to my sense, our highest experience of "luxury," the luxury is not greatest, by my consequent measure, when the work asks for as little attention as possible. It is greatest, it is delightfully, divinely great, when we feel the surface, like the thick ice of the skater's pond, bear without cracking the strongest pressure we throw on it. The sound of the crack one may recognise, but never surely to call it a luxury." —Henry James, from The Preface to The Wings of the Dove (1909) "[The critic’s] choice of best salami is a picture backed by studio build-up, agreement amongst his colleagues, a layout in Life mag (which makes it officially reasonable for an American award), and a list of ingredients that anyone’s unsophisticated aunt in Oakland can spot as comprising a distinguished film.

Five Film Composers that Hollywood Needs Back

Hollywood has no shortage of talented composers crafting mostly serviceable tunes for the next young adult literary adaptation or prestige awards tearjerker. But for every auteur like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, you have musical yes men pounding out ominous notes in anticipation of the next horror movie jump scare or making ratatat noise to underscore a superhero chase scene. The film world screams for diverse sounds, but is often left wanting when scores become interchangeable to feed the Hollywood machine. The current film decade is no different from any other in terms of talent, mediocrity, and ingenuity, but could always use a boost from professionals who bring specificity to the table. These five forgotten or diminished artists, each among them with varied yet singular skills, are screaming to be brought back into the Hollywood fold to create their signature sounds.

Interview: Hossein Amini (The Two Faces of January)

Continuing in the tradition of Patricia Highsmith’s set of globetrotters and vacationing daytrippers who dip their toes not only in foreign backdrops, but in tend to find themselves in the most inconvenient of situations, it is the American novelist’s 1964 novel that finds a suitor in British-Iranian writer (and now turned director in his own right) Hossein Amini.

Working with players such as Viggo Mortensen, Oscar Isaac and Kirsten Dunst, Amini, whose long list of creds include Michael Winterbottom’s Jude, Iain Softley’s The Wings of the Dove, Shekar Kapur’s The Four Feathers, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive and the upcoming Our Kind of Traitor, takes a stab at the thriller-genre with the sun-drenched Greece and Turkey as the conniving backdrop with The Two Faces of January, which opened August 28th and is still running in its limited engagement.
