NEW YORK — In the first major soiree of Hollywood

first_img NEW YORK — In the first major soiree of Hollywood’s awards season, Chloe Zhao’s elegiac, lyrical Western “The Rider” took best feature film at the 28th annual Gotham Awards.It was a surprising, but far from baffling conclusion to the Gothams, the New York-based gala for independent film, held Monday night at Cipriani’s Wall Street in downtown Manhattan. The awards were generally spread around, including a pair of prizes for Bo Burnham’s coming-of-age directing debut “Eighth Grade” and Paul Schrader’s impassioned Catholic drama “First Reformed.”But the night’s final honour went to “The Rider,” the second feature by the Chinese-born Zhao, despite no previous awards on the night and only one other nomination: an audience award nod alongside 14 other films. Some may have forgotten it was eligible. Having first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2017, “The Rider” was nominated by the Gotham’s West Coast corollary, the Independent Film Spirit Awards, in February as one of last year’s best.Zhao, too, wasn’t in attendance (she is prepping her next film). And few looked more surprised than the producers — Bert Hamelinck and Mollye Asher — who accepted the award. “This is going to be the worst acceptance speech,” stuttered Hamelinck.Yet “The Rider,” filmed with Lakota cowboys on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation, persevered over a few Oscar favourites, including Yorgos Lanthimos’ period romp “The Favourite” and Barry Jenkins’ James Baldwin adaptation “If Beale Street Could Talk.”“The Favourite” still went home with two honorary awards: an award for its acting ensemble, led by Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz; and a tribute to Weisz. Jenkins applauded the choice of “The Rider” with a standing ovation and a retweet of his earlier praise of the film, in which he called it “ravishing, sublime imagery paired with deeply earnest storytelling.”Unpredictability pervaded the ceremony, especially for the winners, themselves. When the Fred Rogers documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbour” won the Gothams’ audience award (not typically a category for documentaries but “Won’t You Be My Neighbour” proved a modest summer blockbuster), its director Morgan Neville was stunned, partially since he had already lost best documentary to RaMell Ross’ “Hale County This Morning, This Evening.”“To say this was a surprise would be an extreme understatement,” Neville said. “Since I didn’t know we were nominated.”As an Oscar bellwether, the Gothams, presented by the not-for-profit Independent Film Project , are of little value. Their nominees are chosen by small juries of filmmakers and film critics before some of the fall’s films have been seen.But in the early going, any momentum helps an underdog Oscar campaign, and that seemed especially true of “First Reformed” and “Eighth Grade” — both releases from A24, the indie distributor of “Moonlight” and “Lady Bird.”“First Reformed” star Ethan Hawke took best actor and its 72-year-old writer-director Schrader (“Taxi Driver,” ”Raging Bull”) won best screenplay.“Fourteen years. Best attendance. Sunday school,” said Schrader, who chose filmmaking over the seminary but remained gripped by his Calvinist upbringing. “I earned this award.”Burnham’s “Eighth Grade,” starring 15-year-old Elsie Fisher, won for both breakthrough director and breakthrough actor.“I’m pretty sure this was a glitch in the system or something,” began Fisher, who said she had been considering giving up on acting before Burnham cast her. “Me from two years ago would be really proud of me right now.”Tributes were also paid to “At Eternity’s Gate” star Willem Dafoe, “22 July” director Paul Greengrass and RadicalMedia founder Jon Kamen. But one of the night’s abiding themes was who wasn’t there. Toni Collette, star of the horror film “Hereditary,” wasn’t on hand to collect her best actress award. And Weisz was the only star of “The Favourite” there for the film’s ensemble award.Weisz held up cardboard paddles of Colman and Stone’s faces and read statements from each claiming that they were the real standout in Lanthimos’ triangular tale of a power struggle in Queen Anne’s 18th century court.“Considering that I’m the only one to turn up,” Weisz concluded, “I think I might be the favourite.”___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAPJake Coyle, The Associated Press by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Nov 26, 2018 9:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img ‘The Rider’ tops Gotham Awards, kicking off awards seasonlast_img read more

Indian actors heading to the West for work saying “Indian talent has the potential to entertain the world” At a time when Indians like Priyanka Chopra (Quantico and Baywatch) and Deepika Padukone (xXx: The Return of Xander Cage) are making its presence felt in Hollywood Aamir says he will only head to the West if the project excites him Till then he is “more excited doing Indian films” he said in an interview with Hollywood Reporter Of his own potential international foray Aamir said that in the past he has “received many offers from Hollywood but I didn’t find any of them exciting in terms of script and character” Watch | Aamir Khan on weight loss during Dangal “For me to do any film the material has to excite me and which part of the world it comes from is not relevant When I do find something that I like (from outside India) I will be happy to do it At the moment I am more excited doing Indian films because I have an emotional connect with my audience which has been built over the last 25-30 years” Aamir said On the film front Aamir is looking forward to the release of wrestling drama “Dangal” which will open in North American theatres first on December 21 two days ahead of its release in India and other countries With a touch of a regional dialect and rustic melody the title track of Aamir Khan’s Dangal is sure to inspire you “Dangal” directed by Nitesh Tiwari is based on the real-life story of ex-wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat (played by Aamir) who was forced to give up his dream of competing in international competition due to financial constraints But in a twist of fate he fulfilled his ambition by training two of his four daughters into world-class wrestlers while challenging the norms in rural India’s strict patriarchal society Aamir told hollywoodreportercom that “Dangal” is “a very human story of courage and believing in yourself and your daughters” He also believes the film “can connect with audiences across cultures and from different parts of the world It is for the family” The film also touches upon the more serious issue of female empowerment Aamir known for his involvement with various social causes pointed out that despite the odds things are changing “‘Dangal’ will have a very positive effect When there is a particular mindset in Indian society which has been around for centuries it won’t change overnight but every attempt to look at things differently has its own impact and in that sense Dangal will have its own role to play in taking the issue (of female empowerment) forward” he said More from the world

governance exemplary law and order and record growth Nitish Kumar pulled Bihar back from the brink But no one’s sending him a thank-you card — the stronger more ambitious Bihar he helped build is standing up asking for more Bihar is the cradle of India’s post-1975 politics The JP movement that provoked the Emergency and started the process of the Congress party’s decline which now seems rather more dramatic than ever imagined began here Everybody not only knows politics here but also loves it In a state where nothing worked for six decades and where per capita incomes are less than a fourth of that of India’s richest states nothing catches people’s imagination more than politics Or “paaltiks” as a pucca Bihari would say Like Lalu Prasad Quoted verbatim: “Bihar is not like the other states Bihari peepulz do not accept anything silently They are very paaltikal They have a view on everything and all matters” You need someone with much greater scholarship than I to explain this Or maybe even a soil scientist There must be something in this soil on the two banks of the Ganga and spread across its many and usually less benign tributaries which helps politics and statecraft thrive With Buddha and Mahavira the Gupta and Maurya dynasties Chanakya and the empires of Magadh Vaishali the ancient metro of Patliputra and the University of Nalanda Bihar punches way above its weight nationally It is also as much the home of heartland politics as the primary pathshala of the political reporter No surprise therefore that this is where this metaphor Writings on the Wall under which these dispatches are strung together emerged in the course of one of our group’s — the self-styled Limousine Liberals’ — earlier travels The idea that if you wished to know what was going on in a part of India what was changing what wasn’t how why and what next you had to read what was written on the walls You just have to keep a sharp eye an open mind and your usual reporter’s curiosity Because sometimes it is the absence of any writings even the walls that tells you a story as it did in 2003 — a story of beleaguered hopelessness an economy of pure subsistence and tiny money order remittances caste grievance indeed grievances of the past Then the first writings appeared though not on the walls as most of the countryside was still thatched in 2004 The first writings appeared on tiny boards nailed to trees selling English-medium private schooling This was the cue for a new aspirational surge Now you know how we sniffed it so early Vindication came next year as Lalu’s do-nothing stranglehold on electoral arithmetic was demolished by Nitish Kumar on the (then) unusual exhortation that elections were no longer a time to season your lathis with oil (Lalu’s favourite war cry) but to fill your pens with ink By the time Nitish was seeking his second mandate in 2010 we saw something else even more striking on walls that had sprung up sort of dramatically in those five years of brilliant governance like new vegetation sprouting after a shower on land that had been under a drought for years These walls were now selling branded underwear to Biharis (‘A Mandate for Nitish Hope Kumar’ Writings on the Wall IE November 22 2010 iexpin/kZT83924) This was evidence of upward mobility and aspiration of a breakout from subsistence economy and a clear pointer to Nitish’s second victory the biggest-ever in the history of Indian elections unmatched by even Nehru in 1952 when the opposition did not exist Then why is the same Nitish struggling now as the state approaches the final two rounds of elections And why is Lalu whom we had written off and whose political future now seemed confined to jail smiling and feeling revived politically Can you read it anywhere in the writings on the wall You sure can but you may need to also read between the lines Admitted that across the old bridge on the Ganga past the domes of the historic Patna Sahib Gurdwara on the right you enter one of the 10 more developed (or more accurately less under-developed) regions of rural Bihar That is because between the constituencies of Hajipur (Ram Vilas Paswan) and Chhapra (Rabri Devi Lalu and Rajiv Pratap Rudy of the BJP) lies a most prized and therefore pampered political battleground This is the land of ancient Vaishali and many stupas and ruins still remain But this is still very very poor rural Bihar And you see how poor at Suhag General Store an 8×12 hole-in-the-wall that sells bangles and trinkets on a board outside with a very well-done portrait of Priyanka Chopra as a bride The owner Mr Saadh stands behind his little counter stripped to his baniyan sweating in the 45-degree afternoon heat and his customers three women in crumpled sarees — all red BPL cardholders as it turns out — are buying hair oil and bangles which fill most of the shelves But in one corner you will see something you wouldn’t have expected in a countryside where the vast majority of people qualify to be below the poverty line Two stacks of Stayfree sanitary pads And next to that merchandise even more surprising Three brands of Davy Huggies and Pampers diapers in tiny stone-poor Manua Ghat (see picture taken on my phone on The Indian Express website and Facebook page) You even see diapers in smaller easier to buy packets hanging along with strings of shampoo and oil sachets This is change From nothing to decent schooling to branded underwear to Pampers for your little ones let us say stealing an old cigarette advertising line and using it so utterly out of context the rural Biharis have come a long way baby That is change And if Nitish is now looking at what can only be described as a downturn in electoral fortunes as dramatic as his sweep in 2010 could it be because he failed to appreciate this Nearly nine years of great governance exemplary law and order among the highest rates of economic growth in India and a most dramatic improvement in social indicators however low the base may have been has changed voter attitudes in Bihar more radically than he imagined when he broke off from the BJP driven by hubris that he couldn’t escape in the halo of 2010 and imprisoned mostly by bureaucratic sycophants who converged around him in its wake A better fed less insecure population is tougher to satiate It wants more It is less bound by ideology because more that is material and now matters is within its reach a possibility The more aspirational — or okay materialistic — a people the less ideological they become They are not about to reward him for breaking away from the BJP on secular ideology particularly when the choice is for the Centre not the state between Narendra Modi and who-knows-who not between Nitish and Modi or Lalu Village after village huddle after huddle Biharis whether Dalits upper castes Yadavs other OBCs — funny how you do not feel embarrassed asking people their caste as you strike up a conversation it is the done thing — say only one thing: this is the bada (big) election We are choosing a PM not CM This is not about Nitish It is for or against Modi So if you are a Muslim you vote against Modi Most others barring Yadavs who never left Lalu are willing to give Modi a chance The curious thing however is how the same Muslims for whose sake and to save whom from Modi Nitish broke with the BJP are now returning to Lalu instead Why no thank-you cards for Nitish Lalu will explain Nitish’s predicament to you as only he can What is Nitish telling you he asks me “Lalu ji woh kehte hain ki Modi ki koi hawa nahin chal rahi kewal publicity ka blower chal raha hai Aur unki bahut seatein aayengi kyonki Mussalman sab unke paas hain BJP chhodne ke liye” I say somewhat simplistically and provocatively And sure enough Lalu takes the bait “Dekhiye Shekhar ji hamaare Hindu dharam mein jab gotra milta hai tabhi shaadi hoti hai Aur paaltiks mein kya gotra hai aaj kewal secular aur communal” he explains and so more than 15 years ago their gotras matched and Nitish as bride and Advani ji as groom got married “Vivah hua phir beta-beti pota-poti naata-naati (after marriage came children and grandchildren) Aur ab keh rahe ho ke gotra nahin mila toh kaun maanega Janta bahut samajhdar hai” Lalu explains Nitish’s miscalculation better than any prime-time pundit could Every opinion poll now tells you that the Muslims in Bihar have moved en masse to Lalu In fact the latest NDTV poll tells us that nearly 70 per cent Muslims now say that they will vote for the RJD-Congress combine This is some setback for Nitish who just the other day was being hailed by Bihar’s Muslims as sher ka bachcha (‘When lonely Lalu misses “gentleman” Sonia and a Muslim calls Nitish “sher ka bachcha”’ Writings on the Wall IE November 23 2010 iexpin/oFu83921) for keeping Modi out of their state Why are they now not willing to reward him for taking such a big risk to reject Modi as the NDA’s prime ministerial candidate This is so contrary to what was promised to poor Nitish by Delhi’s liberal activists and intellectual busybodies who pumped his ego and led him to this disaster The truth is it is not as if the Muslims are dumping him They like many other Biharis would still prefer him as their chief minister but that is not at stake now The same NDTV poll tells you an overwhelming number of Biharis still prefer Nitish for their state But this is not a chhota election but bada And today Lalu with his Yadav base and the Congress as ally looks like a much more credible force against Modi than Nitish all by himself so what if he is still the sher ka bachcha We catch up with Nitish at a reasonably well-attended rally at Parsa in Chhapra (now Saran after delimitation) constituency where his Muslim candidate looks a distant third behind Rabri and Rudy The Nitish of old is still all there You can see it in the way he handles two groups of hecklers positioned strategically at the flanks in front They are carrying neatly printed banners that say they won’t vote for him unless they get electricity and how when they complained to their MLA he told them he had no idea where their village was located “Does everybody want to protest or are there also people here who have come to listen to me” he asks the crowd Sure enough an overwhelming majority shouts the protesters down and Nitish launches into the details of what he is doing to improve the power situation Of how when he took over Bihar got only 500 megawatts of power while now he has taken it to 2800 and more power plants are coming up Also he has a genuine sob story about the Centre messing up his coal linkages This is a digression but it is also significant to note how “megawatt” has now become integral to election campaigns in India Over the next four days we hear everybody from Modi to Rahul Gandhi to Akhilesh Yadav and father Mulayam Singh Yadav to Lalu to Arvind Kejriwal talk about making power more plentiful and cheaper across Bihar Isn’t this change And virtuously so But in this election this will not work and Nitish knows it We catch him on the stage as his rally ends and I ask him if he realises he has made a mistake Now you haven’t met many politicians who will admit that and Nitish is no exception But he goes halfway there or sort of “What choice was I left with” he asks “Was I to go along with this divisive agenda” “But if you found it okay to go with Mr Advani what’s wrong with Modi” I ask “In any case why didn’t you stay with the NDA for now get your seats and then oppose Modi for the prime ministership when you had leverage” “It is easy to put it like that” he says “But do you realise how much what kind of things I would have had to put up with Now there is a man saying those who do not vote for Modi should go to Pakistan Kis kis baat ke liye zindaabad kehte hum (what horrible things would we have been forced to keep cheering for)” “But you may lose this election even your government” “If that is so so be it You cannot sacrifice your beliefs and ideology” he is unfazed “But politics is no tirtha yatra (pilgrimage)” I continue needling him Nitish counters saying it indeed is And quotes a favourite Lohia verse describing public life as precisely that a pilgrimage You cannot win an argument with a real Lohiaite Not even when he is looking at perhaps the greatest electoral setback in his politics Nitish can however still draw some comfort that when the time for the chhota election comes his people may take a different view His state has changed under him and his nine years in power represent a real tribute to Indian politics and our grassroots politicians’ talent for governance You can fault him for not being able to bring industry and white collar jobs or a lot more electricity for failing to improve the Patna airport — probably the most dangerous on that scale in India — or doing anything for tourism even getting a modern two-star hotel built But his government works at the village level and the cities have seen a boom however chaotic and haphazard Property prices have zoomed and Biharis have a new sense of pride Nothing reflects that newfound pride more tellingly than the rising number of Biharis making it to all-India services and institutions through competitive examinations From a semi-starving people roused to first demanding schooling it is logical that the Biharis now want jobs the best jobs India has to offer And if nobody will do anything about it they will do it themselves You want to see how Come with me for a half-day’s walk through the distant outskirts of Patna and see how voluntary activism works for an aspirational young population Anand Kumar 42 has a likely Bihari story A brilliant Mathematics student Anand who had papers published in reputed journals as a student got admitted for a Masters at the University of Cambridge but could not go as he was too poor to fund himself For 12 years now he has dedicated himself fully to ensuring that others particularly those from underprivileged backgrounds like his (he comes from a poor OBC family) are not denied similar opportunities In partnership with a similarly concerned IPS officer Abhayanand he set up a remarkable success story the much-celebrated Super 30 where he claims all 30 poor students selected by him every year through an exam and tutored at his home at Jakkanpur in Patna make it to an IIT or NIT In 11 years of the 333 students coached by him and his brother 281 made it to IITs and the rest to NITs He and his brother raise money by holding commercial group-tuition classes in the evening and use the earnings to provide free teaching food and stay to their students who now come from all over India It costs only Rs 5000 per student per month but once we start chatting with them you know it’s more money than any of them has seen in their lives Meet Nidhi Jha from Varanasi Her father is an auto driver who also works as a priest to support the family and his children’s education She has lived in a temple precinct She scored 844 per cent in class XII and her father had the foresight to send her to a CBSE school Do her parents mind her going so far away to live and study She says “My father said go anywhere as long as you can study and build a great career” Madhu Singh from Etah is a Navodaya Vidyalaya student and scored 846 per cent in CBSE in class XII Her father is a sharecropper In fact among the 30 handpicked students here eight are products of Navodaya Vidyalayas evidence that this Rajiv Gandhi initiative really worked That the Congress has completely forgotten it and refused to even talk about it in this campaign tells you how comprehensively it has lost its way Dilip Kumar from Lalu’s Madhepura is the son of a daily-wage labourer He supported his education by teaching little children before coming to Super 30 but his brother is already an NIT-educated engineer working in Kolkata So his labourer family is already an aspirational success story Sunil Ravidas a Dalit from Patna is also a daily wager and a Mathematics whiz Amit Patel from Lohta near Varanasi is the son of a farmer who owns less than an acre of land

foundation in Munger it has been running classes for 30 handpicked Muslim boys every year since 2008 to prepare them for the IIT-JEE examinations Last year eight of the batch made it to IITs and the rest to NITs This year Rahmani has started another batch of 30 Shakeelur Rahman son of a madrasa teacher from West Champaran started his education where else but at the madrasa But now he is a master in Physics and Chemistry Mohammed Tehsin Rabbani’s father repairs automobiles at Samastipur but still sent him to AV Public School for modern CBSE education Six students from the current Rahmani batch of 30 come from families of marginal farmers and six are sons of madrasa teachers Shabbirul Hoda Rahmani Foundation manager says that these 30 are selected from 175 shortlisted after a nationwide test Tahaq Ashmi computer trainer at Rahmani 30 graduated in Arabic and talks fondly of the desktop computer he is setting up to train his students You talk to Anand Kumar and he tells you he is running Super 30 because he believes that brilliance has nothing to do with how rich or poor you are and that nobody should suffer his fate and rather than feel sorry for himself he’ll do something for others You ask Abhayanand now director-general of police and Physics topper from Patna University and he tells you that after he finished teaching both his children he realised the pleasures of teaching as well as what it would do for young people When he saw the Sachar Committee report he realised how poorly young Muslims were doing in India and felt so strongly that all that stood between them and equality was a little bit of help and opportunity One day the maulana from Rahmani Foundation came to him and he decided to work with him on this project “Now I feel like a Physics teacher all the time morning to night” He said it is no stretch for him to combine it with his job as DGP In fact his success on the law and order front is entirely matched by that of his batch of Muslim boys in IIT-JEE As we drive out my colleague and The Indian Express special correspondent Santosh Singh who made it possible for me to see these exhilarating things puts it in perspective “I was born a Thakur therefore a high caste but my father’s family only owned five bighas of land among four brothers So my mother never tired of reminding me and my three younger brothers that all we would get is five kathas (one katha is 1361 sq ft) of land so how will you survive unless you get education” He continues “My three younger brothers are also bank managers and it is all because of our mother constantly reminding us of those five kathas of land” Santosh’s story is not atypical in today’s Bihar or India It is a story of aspirational parents of ambitious children and impatient voters where the future matters more than the past identity or ideology If this is how Bihar thinks today the rest of India can’t be far behind sg@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App

held by Sam Taylor-Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey Online debates ahead of the film’s release about the Amazonian superhero’s lack of armpit hair and the furor surrounding her selection last year as a UN honorary ambassador have only served to boost box office takings But it is above all the depiction of the sword-wielding lasso-tossing character as an empowered woman that accounts for the film’s triumph said Melissa Silverstein founder of the Women and Hollywood blog and co-founder of the women-focused Athena Film Festival “It’s almost an exclamation point on what women have been saying for a long time – in the industry outside the industry; that our stories matter we are the heroes of the stories we can kick butt as well as anyone else and we’re equal” she told the Thomson Reuters

Film at San Diego State University California Behind the scenes women made up just 7 percent of directors working on the top 250 domestic grossing films in 2016 a study by the same center shows “The
