Everything Old Is New Again: Antonio Banderas and the Latin Lover

  • MUBI
Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! Courtesy of PhotofestAntonio Banderas is one of those screen presences who just seems to know. Preternaturally wised-up, his large liquid eyes are his gift, ever watchful and secretive. It’s like he was born knowing; he’s never not been on the make or aware of his own charms. In his decades-long collaboration with Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, he has been an infatuated stalker, a vengeance-driven plastic surgeon, and an escaped convict. His characters are often driven in equal measure by obsessive love and violent impulse; even as a young man, he rarely portrayed an innocent. With his inky, slicked hair, olive skin, and nobly handsome profile, the young Banderas sometimes looked like a sketch of a 1930s gigolo; you could easily imagine him as a homicidal pool boy or sexually fluid manipulator in a film noir. His good looks were not just fulsome

While most films in contention have not yet been released, many were recently seen by film critics and industry insiders at the Toronto, Telluride and Venice Film Festivals. We’ve confirmed most category placements with studios or campaigners, but some decisions aren’t yet final. Meantime, Gold Derby lists Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) as well as Christian Bale and Matt Damon (“Ford v. Ferrari”) in both lead and supporting categories in our prediction center.

Here are the current top 10 supporting actor picks according to racetrack odds based upon our users’ predictions as of Sept. 17:

1. Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”): Pitt doesn’t have a designated category yet, so he appears both as a lead and supporting candidate on the Gold Derby site.

Bruce Springsteen’s Six Greatest Movie Songs

Bruce Springsteen’s Six Greatest Movie Songs
Bruce Springsteen’s music has always been cinematic, which is one reason why so many of his songs strike a chord at the movies.

Friday is the premiere of the film, “Blinded By The Light,” which tells the story of a British-Pakistani teenager and his journey after discovering the Boss’ music. Based on the book, “Greetings From Bury Park,” by Sarfraz Manzoor, the film makes excellent use of Springsteen classics like “Jungleland” and “The Promised Land.”

But no matter where they’re used, Springsteen’s songs enliven film scenes. And the man himself does as much in “High Fidelity” — a fantasy sequence from the 2000 film in which he gives advice to John Cusack’s character as he strums his Fender and tells him to “move on down the road.”

Which is what we’re going to do, after serving up these six great examples of Springsteen music used well in films.

Bruce Springsteen’s Favorite Movies, From ‘Double Indemnity’ to ‘The Grapes of Wrath’

Bruce Springsteen’s Favorite Movies, From ‘Double Indemnity’ to ‘The Grapes of Wrath’
Bruce Springsteen’s career has always been intertwined with his love of the movies, from noir thrillers like “The Postman Always Rings Twice” to dramas following tough-talking American anti-heroes like “Two-Lane Blacktop.” The Boss’ affection for ’70s gems and ’40s classics hasn’t kept him from crafting original songs for contemporary movies either, including his Oscar-winning title track “Philadelphia,” and other lauded compositions for “Dead Man Walking” and “The Wrestler.”

Springsteen has even headlined a few of his own films, including documentaries like “Bruce Springsteen: In His Own Words,” “The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town,” and “The Ties That Bind,” along with a recent Netflix special chronicling his history-making turn on Broadway. Later this month, Springsteen moves into the director’s chair himself, when he and frequent collaborator Thom Zimny debut their “Western Stars” at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Can Bruce Springsteen nab Emmy, Grammy and Tony within a span of 2 years?

Can Bruce Springsteen nab Emmy, Grammy and Tony within a span of 2 years?
Bruce Springsteen has been making music for decades, but he might be smack-dab in the middle of his most successful period of his career, at least when it comes to awards. He received an honorary Tony for “Springsteen on Broadway” in 2018. Now he’s an Emmy contender for Netflix‘s filmed version of that show. And he’s a 2020 Grammy contender for his critically acclaimed new album “Western Stars.” Could he claim all those kudos within the span of two years? If so, he’d sort of have the Egot, but not quite.

Springsteen already got halfway to Egot a quarter of a century ago. He won the first of his 20 Grammys in 1985: Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for “Dancing in the Dark.” Less than a decade later he won the Oscar for Best Original Song for “Streets of Philadelphia” from the film “Philadelphia” (1993). No Emmys, though, despite two

Antonio Banderas to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award at Munich Film Festival

Antonio Banderas to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award at Munich Film Festival
Spanish actor Antonio Banderas will receive this year's CineMerit award for lifetime achievement at the Munich International Film Festival.

Banderas began his film career in the 1980s together with Spanish director Pedro Almodovar and films such as Labyrinth of Passion (1982), Matador (1986) and Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1989).

He went to Hollywood in the 1990s, starring in such features as Philadelphia (1993), Interview With the Vampire (1994) and Roberto Rodriguez‘s Desperado (1995), which made him a bona fide action star.

The 58-year-old actor is arguably best known for his role as the hero in Martin Campbell's The Mask of Zorro ...

Will Oscar champ Rami Malek (‘Bohemian Rhapsody’) rock the MTV Movie and TV Awards too?

It’s not often that the Oscars and MTV Movie and TV Awards agree on something. The highfalutin motion picture academy’s tastes don’t usually line up with MTV fans, but it has been known to happen from time to time. Both awards honored the performances of Tom Hanks (“Philadelphia”), Julia Roberts (“Erin Brockovich”) and Jennifer Lawrence (“Silver Linings Playbook”), for instance. Will Rami Malek be next for his performance as Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody”?

Despite its mixed reviews, “Rhapsody” was a hit with both fans and the academy. It received an A CinemaScore from audiences and ended up taking in $216 million at the domestic box office and $903 million worldwide, which made it the highest grossing music biopic and the highest grossing Lgbt-centered film of all time. And the popularity of the film sent Queen‘s music soaring back up the charts; as of this writing their greatest

Michael A. Gray, Veteran Hollywood Marketing Executive, Dies at 87
Michael A. Gray, a former Hollywood marketing executive who produced electronic press kits for such movies as Moonstruck, The Silence of the Lambs and Philadelphia, has died. He was 87.

Gray died Monday in Baltimore, his friend and former Universal Studios Hollywood marketing exec Neal Lemlein told The Hollywood Reporter.

Commissioned by Universal Pictures in 1984 to design a brochure for a new television publicity concept, Gray dubbed it "the electronic press kit," Lemlein noted, and the term would become part of the industry's lexicon.

Tom O’Neil explains why Mahershala Ali is suddenly the new Oscar frontrunner

Tom O’Neil explains why Mahershala Ali is suddenly the new Oscar frontrunner
Over the past 10 days, Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”) has not only jumped ahead of Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”) in the Oscar race for Best Supporting Actor, but Ali seems to have established a firm lead among the Experts making predictions at Gold Derby. Fifteen out of 25 Experts pick Ali; 6 predict Chalamet will prevail.

See the Experts’ latest rankings per category and racetrack odds in the 15 top races.

Up until recently, Chalamet consistently held a modest lead in this race. On Oct. 19, for example, 10 Experts picked him to win, 8 backed Ali. Chalamet seemed like the obvious fave because, well, for starters, a lot of people think he should’ve won Best Actor two years ago for his breakout performance in “Call Me By Your Name.” Now he’s got an even flashier part in “Beautiful Boy”: the kind of big, wigged-out, bug-eyed, high-kicking, grandstanding role that academy voters often adore.

The Evolution of Denzel Washington, From ‘Malcolm X’ to ‘The Equalizer 2’ (Photos)
Three Oscars, Three Golden Globes, a Tony, and a lifetime of memorable performances. Denzel Washington has proven that he is one of the most iconic actors in Hollywood today. With his latest film “The Magnificent Seven” out and his expecting Oscar-contending film “Fences” coming soon, let’s look back at his long career.

Let’s start with this picture of him as a kid that was used in a Boys & Girls Club of America ad, just to show you he was born with that steely-eyed gaze.

After getting started in Maryland and Off-Broadway theatre, Washington got his first major role on the 80s hit medical TV show “St. Elsewhere” as Dr. Philip Chandler.

In 1987, Washington earned his first Academy Award nomination playing the famed South African activist Steve Biko in “Cry Freedom.”

Tony Honorees Bruce Springsteen, Andrew Lloyd Webber Can Enjoy the Show
Here are some of the artists receiving special Tony Award honors on Sun., June 10.

John Leguizamo

Leguizamo has been a regular fixture on Broadway since his first show on the Great White Way: “Freak” earned him Tony nominations for play and performance in 1998. He’s made a specialty out of autobiographically inspired, comic monologues that have touched on everything from his dysfunctional childhood in Queens (“Freak”) to the women who helped him on the road to maturity (“Sexaholix”) to how he forged a Hollywood career (“Ghetto Klown”). He was nominated this year as the creator of best play nominee “Latin History for Morons,” an overview of oft-overlooked Latin people who have played major roles in American history, all framed by the contemporary story of his fraught relationship with his own son.

Win or lose, Leguizamo already knows he’s walking away with a Tony. That’s because he’s also

He has also won an Oscar for the original song “Streets of Philadelphia” from the film “Philadelphia” (1993).

‘Phantom Thread’: Paul Thomas Anderson Wants to Work with Lesley Manville Again

‘Phantom Thread’: Paul Thomas Anderson Wants to Work with Lesley Manville Again
While Paul Thomas Anderson’s collaborations with Daniel Day-Lewis appear to be over, the director has a hunch he’ll be back on set with their fellow “Phantom Thread” Oscar nominee Lesley Manville. “I can’t shake the feeling that I have more business with Lesley,” Anderson told Austin Film Society founder and artistic director Richard Linklater Thursday at the Texas Film Awards. “Whatever that means.”

During the making of their six-time Academy Award nominee (and Best Costume Design winner), Day-Lewis created some tension by refusing to rehearse his scenes. “Lesley won’t be the one who says, ‘I want to rehearse,’ Lesley will go, ‘Whatever you boys want,'” Anderson explained. “There’s something so appealing about that. She’s like I’m going to come in and be great no matter what you guys do.”

“Powerhouse” Manville also impressed Anderson by wedging a few hours at Sunday’s
