Shattering The Mold: Stuntman Mark Kubr On His Epic Career, ‘La La Land’ & More!

Shattering The Mold: Stuntman Mark Kubr On His Epic Career, ‘La La Land’ & More!

Stunt Coordinator Mark Kubr is one of a kind.

When it comes to careers in Hollywood, Mark Kubr is certainly one of the most unique you will encounter. From crashing cars to being lit on fire to going toe-to-toe with some of the entertainment industry’s business names, he truly has done it all. As a stuntman/stunt coordinator, he is one of the unsung heroes of the film industry and an integral part of bringing our favorite films to life. However, his life is not all explosions and roundhouse kicks.

Kubr recently served as the stunt coordinator on Damien Chazelle’s much buzzed about new film, “La La Land.” The film centers around aspiring actress Mia (Emma Stone) and dedicated jazz musician Sebastian (Ryan Gosling). They meet and fall in love but, as success mounts, the dreams they worked so hard to maintain threaten to rip them apart. Kubr coordinated the opening scene of the film which involves Mia and Sebastian meeting for the first time in standstill traffic on a freeway in Los Angeles. The major dance sequence was shot in two days with more than 100 dancers. In his review of the film, Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter said, “There’s never been anything quite like this opening sequence.”

Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Mark Kubr to discuss his unique career path, his evolution from model/actor to one of the respected stunt players in the industry. He also offers a look inside what it takes to sustain a career in this rough and tumble profession, the challenges he has faced along the way and where he plans to focus his energy in the years to come!

Everyone has their own path. How did you get your start in the entertainment industry?

I was bagging groceries in a supermarket that was close to my house. I used to take groceries out to the car for a voice-over actress name Jean DeWitt. We got to talking and she said, “Oh my gosh, you have such a good look. Have you ever thought about acting or modeling?” Actually, she was the voice of Wilma Flintstone on “The Flintstones” and Rosie The Robot on “The Jetsons.” I lived in San Clemente at the time and we drove into Los Angeles and I met with her agent. The agent said, “Yeah, let’s see what we can do.” I started going on auditions then I booked a couple of jobs. I booked a Sunkist commercial and print ads. I went to college in San Diego and I had a scholarship for volleyball. Afterwards, I just couldn’t get the bug for acting out of me. I was really loving movies, filmmaking and photography. It’s something I’ve enjoyed my entire life. After college, I moved straight back to Los Angeles to pursue the heck out of it! I stayed in touch with Mrs. DeWitt’s agent and that’s how it all started!

Even though you had the bug, did you have reservations about pursuing a career in the entertainment industry? That is a scary step to take at a young age.

That is the perfect word for it — Scary! [laughs] I was scared to death! It sounds silly but on auditions, you really put yourself out there and put your heart on the line. It’s a very scary thing! There was fear but I didn’t let that fear govern me. Sometimes you feel something deep down inside of you and you know you have to give it a chance or you will regret it for the rest of your life if you don’t. I think that comes from the discipline my parents taught me. Surfing and sports. You have to have the drive to stay in the game.

Was there anyone behind the scenes helping to guide you?

To be honest with you, no. I was pretty much a lone soldier out here hitting the pavement. I really wanted to stay with it and kept plugging and plugging away. I had a few close friends who encouraged me through all the rejections! There was a ton of it in the beginning. The modeling came my way pretty easily and I was a child of the world when it came to that. When it came to auditions and acting that was another really, really tough, competitive arena.

How did you go from model/actor to stunt professional?

That’s a great question. I had this part in a movie and the stunt coordinator on the movie was looking for a stunt double for me. The stunt coordinator on the set is in charge of anyone that’s hitting the ground or involved in any sort of action in the scenes. I asked him if I could perform my own stunts. I told him that I had come from a very athletic background and so on. In short, he let me do it. Then he introduced me to some really powerful people, stunt coordinators, in the business. I started to become a go-to guy when it came to delivering a line and fighting with an actor. I wasn’t Jean Claude Van Damme by any means but I was becoming an action actor. My acting was pretty good so I started working and getting a few credits to my name. That parlayed itself into more work then I began to build up a reputation for myself.

Mark Kubr

As you picked up steam, how did you make the transition from stunt professional to stunt coordinator?

That’s the other thing! I just kept climbing the ladder. I turned down big jobs because I felt I wasn’t prepared or ready enough to become a stunt coordinator. You meet the producers and director and build a relationship with them. As the years go by, you have gained experience and one day you just say, “OK. I’m ready. I’m ready to coordinate. I’m ready to hire people. I have built up a good resume and I feel confident that I can make everyone safe. I’m ready to take that step.” For me, I really wanted to have my ducks in a row before I said, “Yeah, I want to coordinate.” That is another entire process. You have to go to interviews and it’s almost like casting. Sometimes you might meet the director and not get along with him … it’s a whole other thing! [laughs] Like you said, it’s a scary business! [laughs]

I talk to so many actors who want to do their own stunts. Do you work with actors in that capacity and what challenges present themselves?

You bet! Great question! I will go back a couple of years. I coordinated a TV series called “House of Lies.” “House of Lies” had a really stellar cast with Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell. The thing that scares me the most is not when you crash a car or light someone on fire but when the actors want to do physical humor. The series had its share of action but it also had moments where someone might walk into a room, trip over his desk and hit his head on a chair. It’s physical humor like that or when you sneeze and land on your back or you take out another person. In situations like those, you have to use those actors because they might have dialogue while they are falling or something like that. You have to pick and choose your battles with certain actors. Sometimes an actor can handle the entire thing and other times they can take it up to a certain point and then we might put a stunt double in so he or she can take the brunt of the fall, hit or whatever the action is.

You worked with plenty of people in that capacity, I assume. Who are the most gifted actors when it comes to stunt work?

Absolutely and it’s a long list! I actually just fought Russell Crowe in a movie called “The Nice Guys.” It was Russell Crowe, a shotgun and I! He came close to my face with the shotgun, I hit him, he hit me and we never connected! I also had a fight with Robert Downey Jr. in “Iron Man 3.” Same thing. It was Downey, myself and another stuntman named Mike Massa. Mike and I had dialogue with Downey and then, all of a sudden, the suit comes flying through the window. He has part of the suit on when he blasts Mike away and then Downey and I fight. He is really keen on fighting and very aware of his body. He’s actually been taking Wing Chun from a friend of mine, Sifu Eric Oram, so his fighting prowess is totally dialed in. Don Cheadle is another one. He is an amazing athlete. I had the opportunity to work with some very talented actors and the physicality of these gentlemen and ladies is terrific.

I feel like stunt professionals are some of the unsung heroes of the movie industry. Is that fair?

Yeah, that’s true. There is no Oscar for it. We started our own awards ceremony. Red Bull puts it on and it is called the Taurus World Stunt Awards. For me, it’s about being on set pursuing a dream. That dream has become a reality and is feeding my children. I guess I don’t really need all that acclaim. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to see your name in lights but it’s good enough to see your name in the credits. For example, I just finished “La La Land” as the stunt coordinator. To see my name in lights as “Stunt Coordinator Mark Kubr” was fantastic! It was like, “Wow! I’m on the scroll with Damien Chazelle, Mandy Moore, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling!” The actors, directors and other people who are out there in the audience, I think that they understand and that’s good enough! But you’re right it is a bit of an unsung hero thing.

As you mentioned, you were the stunt coordinator on “La La Land.” What can you tell us about the role you played in bringing it to life?

‘La La Land’ hits theaters on December 9th, 2016.

I don’t want to give any of the key elements of it away. However, I will say it is a wonderful film! Please go see it! There is a freeway sequence where there is a traffic jam in Los Angeles. We shut down the 105 onramp onto the 110, the fast track onramp. There were about 100 dancers and 300 cars. They are dancing on top of these automobiles. It’s a magical, magical moment! What do you want to do as a stunt coordinator to stay true to the director’s vision? You start out by talking to the director and the dance choreographer to figure out what you can do as far as bringing action in the traffic jam. In “La La Land,” there aren’t explosions, car hits, fire burns or anything like that but it still brings that physical humor we talked about. To stay true to Damien Chazelle’s vision of an LA traffic jam, I started thinking, “What could we put in this?” So, we came up with a skateboarder who is also stuck in traffic and takes out his skateboard and starts skating through the dancers. Another great stuntman gets out and starts doing parkour; back-to-back flips over cars. There’s also a gymnast who does a backflip and a BMX bike rider who takes his bike out of the bed of his truck. It’s all choreographed and all of those stunt performers are in tune with 100 dancers. It’s an amazing piece of filmmaking that naturally highlights everything I’ve done.

What was it like working with director Damien Chazelle?

The man is a master of film. I was a huge fan of his when I got the job from his work on “Whiplash.” What really struck me about him was that he is such a gentleman. He remembers everyone’s names and treats every single person equally. He could be talking to Ryan, Emma or me but he was constantly a consistent gentleman from A to Z. He was always open to suggestion and took everything into consideration. He’s the man!

What is a typical day on set for you like? I imagine each day is fairly unique depending on the project.

Every single day is different and that’s another great thing about this profession; it’s not a mundane job! You read the script and whether you are a stunt performer or a stunt coordinator, each day brings something different. You also have to prepare for the unexpected. You have to be prepared for when a director says, “Can we make a change here?” It’s always ever-changing!

Director Damien Chazelle and Mark Kubr on the set of “La La Land.”

As a stunt professional, what goes into training and how do you stay at the top of your game?

That’s a great question. I train a lot. I do cardio and I do some weights because I’m getting older. I tried to keep my joints and my muscles strong. I also like to keep my heart-rate good so I can show up to work, as a stunt performer, able to deliver what the stunt coordinator wants. The same thing goes for a stunt coordinator. You don’t want to see an out of shape stunt coordinator on set telling everyone what to do! The physical aspect is very important. I also read a lot. I read a lot of the scripts and read, read, read! It’s great to show up to set, as a stunt coordinator, and be able to converse with the director and every other department head, whether it be a hair makeup or whatever, and knowing what the heck you are talking about. Every single department is important to the stunt coordinator and stunt performer. For instance, on “La La Land,” there is a scene that is a dance number. It takes place on top of the hill at a Hollywood mansion. The stuntman has to dance along with the dancers and then he goes into a flip and twist. He does this into a pool. It’s a really dressed up Hollywood party. So, I go to the makeup people and say, “I need his hair off of his face so that when he is flipping he can be aware of where he is landing.” Then I ask, “What is he wearing?” He is wearing a tuxedo, so I know we will need five or six changes for the same tuxedo because he’s going to land in the pool and get out of there wet. I also need to know what kind of shoes he’s wearing because I don’t want him to slip up there. Coming prepared to work is extremely important and that’s why I read a lot to pick up these details and break it down in those ways, if you know what I mean.

I’m sure you have seen the industry change through the years. How has the rise in CGI affected the industry?

It hasn’t impacted me personally but it has impacted some of the up-and-coming young players for sure. In the past you would have an army of 10,000 people running down the hill but now you don’t need all those people anymore with CGI. However, it has opened up a new realm with motion-capture and there are a lot of stunt players who become motion-capture experts. That is where you use a dancer and a stuntman, film them and capture the motion. From there, they bring that motion into the CGI. That’s kind of cool and it has created another cool little niche in the stunt world but, to answer the question, yeah it is affecting it.

You have been a part of a ton of great projects through the years. Which film had the biggest impact on you?

What moved me the most was “La La Land.” I literally cried all the time. I was watching the dancers dance and was blown away. The choreographer, Mandy Moore, we re-did that pool scene I was speaking about on “Dancing With The Stars.” It was awesome! I got to hire some of the toughest guys on set, the parkour guy or the BMX guy, and even they were moved watching the dancing! I literally had to turn my head away because I was crying. That had the biggest impact on me, honestly! “La La Land” was a life changer!

I know you have a lot of projects on the horizon. What has you most excited right now?

I am excited to work with Matthew Carnahan, who was the showrunner of “House of Lies.” He just pitched another series to Starz and they bought it. I loved working with him on “House of Lies,” so I’m looking forward to working with him once again. He’s another wonderful man and wonderful human being. He’s an incredible author and incredible director!

You mentioned having kids. Are they interested in carrying on your trade? I mean, you’re a stuntman, you have to be the coolest dad on the block! [laughs]

Well, thank you! Both of them work in the entertainment industry and both of them have worked as stunt players. My son was four years old when he did his first stunt. It was on the first “Iron Man” movie. He was the baby in the car seat when Dynamo throws the car around and Iron Man rescues him. He played the son of one of my friends, who was driving the Audi at high speeds and my son was inside the car. It was amazing and I got to hire him again on this movie called “Kook.” We just finished shooting that around Hermosa Beach.

Mark Kubr

Is there anything you haven’t done you look forward to do in your career?

Yes, I would like to direct. I befriended a stuntman when we were on a project together called “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” We got along really, really well and totally clicked. He’s Eric VanArsdale. We are shooting a couple things. I just shot a little documentary on how important it is to keep trades in schools. We went to a local junior college around here and interviewed people in auto mechanics. It’s a really long story but the Cliff Notes version is I helped a man out a long time ago. He was really not in a good place. He had been arrested and was strung out on drugs. I took him in and he lives with me. Time went by and he called me a year ago out of the blue. He said, “Hey, I owe you some money for phone bills … ” I said, “Man, don’t worry about it. How about you buy me a beer?” We got together at a bar and I sat down with him. I asked what he would be having and he said, “I’m sober.” I said, “Wow! What are you doing now?” He said, “I’m the professor of auto mechanics at El Camino College.” I was shocked. He said, “I turned my life around.” As I got into his story, I thought, “Holy smokes!” He was telling me about how they were taking away art and trades from the curriculum. He said, “Look at me, I wasn’t going to go to a four-year school. If it wasn’t for auto mechanics, I would still be in jail. I would probably get shot again.” It moved me so much that I went to the school and met some of the students. I knew I had to do something about this, so I got testimonies from his students and him. I did that and now my directing partner and I are shooting another short project. It’s going to be incredible. In short, yeah, I kind of want to direct! [laughs]

What is the best lesson we can take from your journey?

Follow your dreams. Follow your heart. Be kind along the way. Life is a precious, precious gift, so don’t take it for granted.

Are you involved with any causes we can help shine a light on?

Yes! Thank you so much for asking. The reason I got “La La Land” was from a man named Charlie Croughwell. Him and I started the Earth’s Oceans Foundation. It started from him having two homes in Belize. Belize has some of the most beautiful water in the world and is a well known destination for divers. It is also one of the most polluted places. We started Earth’s Oceans and it’s taking plastics out of the water and making something out of them. We started a line of exercise equipment, different kind of sculptures and art with tile. It’s been an amazing experience. People can learn more about it at earthsoceans.foundation.

It’s been great talking with you, Mark. With everything you have going on I’m sure we’ll talk again in the future! Keep up the work and keep inspiring!

Thank you, Jason. It’s been a pleasure talking to you!

ONLY GOD FORGIVES: Vithaya Pansringarm Discusses His Role In The Film!

only-god-forgives-2013-1

Vithaya Pansringarm is truly exceptional success story. At 54 years old, he started his acting career only five years ago. Armed with an exceptional scene presence and strong work ethic, Pansringarm landed top billing opposite Ryan Gosling in Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest project.’Only God Forgives’ is a gritty thriller set in the seedy underbelly of Bangkok. Julian (Ryan Gosling), an American fugitive from justice, runs a Thai boxing club as a front for his drug business. His mother (Kristin Scott Thomas), the head of a vast criminal organization, arrives from the US to collect the body of her favorite son, Billy. Julian’s brother has just been killed after having savagely murdered a young prostitute. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance she demands the heads of the murderers from Julian. But first, Julian must confront Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm), a mysterious policeman—and figurehead of a divine justice—who has resolved to scourge the corrupt underworld of brothels and fight clubs. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently sat down with Vithaya Pansringarm to discuss how he got his start in the movie business, his role in ‘Only God Forgives,’ his evolution as an actor and much more!

Vithaya Pansringarm

Vithaya Pansringarm

You have a very interesting story when it comes to how you got involved with the film industry. What can you tell us about how you got started on your journey as an actor?

It all happened by accident! [laughs] Actually, my wife and I have our own business. We own a dance school in Bangkok. I am married to a lovely American lady who happened to be a ballerina in New York. We met in New York and we came to Thailand, where we opened a small dance school. Today, the school has over two hundred students! We had been very successful in running the ballet school. What happened was, one night, I went out with a friend and I met a cameraman. He saw me and he invited me to act in a short film. That is how it happened! After I did the short film with him, this cameraman got a job working on an American movie in Thailand. In that movie, they couldn’t find a particular character for the film. My friend the cameraman said “Why don’t you call Vithaya?” I got cast in the film with Nu Image. It happened six years ago and that is how it happened.

Who are some of your biggest influences as an actor?

As an actor, I love Jack Nicholson, Samuel L. Jackson and Christopher Walken. I have seen a lot of their work and I am always quite impressed. Sir Anthony Hopkins is another. I like all of these actors because I too am in my fifties, you see?

Your latest film is Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives.” How did you get involved with this project?

After I worked on several overseas productions that had come to shoot movies in Thailand, the casting director in Thailand started to know me. When the casting director received the script from Nicolas, she called me! She said “This Danish director is doing this movie and I have read the script. I think you would be perfect for this project.” She asked me to audition for “Only God Forgives.” That was about three years back. At the time, she said Nicolas liked me but he was doing “Drive,” so the whole project was put aside. After “Drive,” Nic decided to do the film and I had to re-audition for the character. He decided he was going to use me for the film and that is how it happened.

only-god-forgives-2013-7

What can you tell us about the role and what intrigued you about the character?

After I read the script, I said “My goodness! This character is very unique!” It is not a typical character you see in many projects. The title is “Only God Forgives,” and when I read the script, I said “Wow! Nic wants this guy to be God! What type of God are we talking about?” I think Nic understood when he moved the movie to Thailand; it was involved with the Thai society, culture and beliefs. I became God in terms of the God that people in my country believe in, which is almost like and angel has someone in a trance. He can be a human being but there is a spiritual power inside of him – energy. When Nic said to me at one point “This character is powerful but he has to have energy inside.” I knew exactly what he was trying to say. you are almost like a statue. People see a statue and they can respect it because the stature represents something. Little by little, we tried to create the character of Chang. In the script, after executes somebody or kills somebody, he goes into a karaoke bar. He does that to purify himself of the power that has come out of his hands. We created this character during the pre-production and as we shot the movie, we tried to also fine tune his personality and have it come out in a unique way. We created Chang, in a way you cannot duplicate. It is so original and could only be in “Only God Forgives.”

I know you have been involved with the martial arts for many years. How did your training affect the creation of this character?

It had a big impact, very much so! When Nicolas said, “You have to be like a statue.” I immediately thought of my martial arts field. I have been involved with the Japanese fencing called Kendo for the past 28 years. In Kendo, when we fight, it is almost you hold the sword in a way where you become one. You hardly move and you focus your energy on your opponents. I said to myself, “That is what I am going to do in this film.” I am going to focus my energy to the camera, the lens and the character I am with. You don’t know what the expression is on my face but you can feel what is in my heart. That is my key. The whole time I act in this film, it is more than just acting because I have to use Chi, which is the inside energy. It is all about martial arts in this movie.

What do you consider the biggest challenge you encountered with this role?

First of all, when I first received this opportunity to meet Nic for the first time, I just finished a Thai movie where I played a Buddhist monk. Even though I am an Asian man, I’m a big guy! At the time I met Nic for the first time, I was 103 kg. Nic said to the casting director “I like Poo but I think he is too big.” Poo is my nickname. The character is an ex-boxer, you see. As soon as the casting director told me that, the next day I started going to the gym without even knowing if I was going to get the role or not. I just put in 100%! I went to the day almost every day for eight months. I dropped 20 kilos with physical exercise! Then when Nic saw me again, we didn’t say anything but he know I had committed to the project. They provided me with a personal trainer and a Thai boxing coach for another three months. For me, at 53, doing these things is very challenging! [laughs]

only-god-forgives-2013-5

Nicolas Winding Refn is making quite a name for himself. What did you learn from him while working together?

One time is not enough when it comes to learning from Nicolas! [laughs] When you work with Nicolas, you discover he really does his homework! He knows exactly what he needs to do on the set but at the same time he is very flexible. He is not a director who comes in and tells you this is how to do something. He asks you how you feel, what you want to do and what you want to create with him. That is one thing I really loved about working with him! In technical terms, he knows his camera work. All you need to do is use your own imagination and try to understand what is in his mind and what he wants. Also, when he works and it is perfect, it is not enough. He would always say on set “It’s perfect! Let’s do it again.” He would say that for the next 15 to 20 takes! [laughs] I learned that from him. Even if you think something is perfect, you can be even more perfect than you think! That is what I learned from Nicolas.

A Must-See Film!

How do you feel you have evolved as an actor since you first started out?

Oh, wow! First of all, it is really wonderful. At this point, my wife and I have the successful dance school and it is doing well but acting is like a new chapter in my life. Some of my friends are now retiring or some have started caring for their grandchildren. I have found a whole new career! It is almost a new life for me with mew opportunities and new friends. I feel I have become more creative and I enjoy it, very much so!

Your story is one many people will find inspirational. What do you think is the best lesson that can be learned for your extraordinary journey?

I try to do my best in everything I have the opportunity to do. I work hard and do my homework. I would tell people to never give up. I started acting at 50, as I said. I didn’t dream big, it just happened. In situations like that, you just have to keep doing it and doing your best. To people who want to have the same opportunity, keep doing it and one day it will happen! For me, I am very grateful for the opportunity of working with Nicolas, Ryan [Gosling] and Kristen Scott Thomas. I could never ask for any better project than this one!

Is there a particular type of role you are anxious to tackle in the future?

You know, you have seen me on the scene becoming more of a symbol of violence but I would love to do drama! I think comedy is hard, as is making people laugh! If I had the opportunity to do drama, I would very much look forward to a challenging role! I think it would be interesting for me!

Thank you so much for your time today! You were fantastic in this film and we look forward to your future work!

Thank you very much, Jason! Thank you!

New Red Band Stills and Behind-The-Scenes Featurettes For ‘Drive’

New Red Band Stills and Behind-The-Scenes Featurettes For ‘Drive’

Check out the NEW red-band stills and behind-the-scenes featurettes for DRIVE! From 2011 Cannes Film Festival Best Director Award winner Nicolas Winding Refn, this action-heist thriller starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman and Oscar Isaac is now playing! Check out all the new items below and weigh in with your thoughts on the film!

Synopsis: Breakout Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (THE PUSHER Trilogy, BRONSON, VALHALLA RISING) throttles into the Hollywood fast lane with the precision-crafted action caper DRIVE.

Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can’t help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).

After a heist intended to pay off Standard’s protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman). But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk-that they’re coming straight for Irene and her son-Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense.

DRIVE was written by Academy Award® nominee Hossein Amini (THE WINGS OF THE DOVE) and adapted from the eponymous novel by James Sallis. It was produced by Marc Platt, Gigi Pritzker, Michel Litvak, Adam Siegel and John Palermo; executive producers are David Lancaster, Gary Michael Walters, Bill Lischak and Linda McDonough.

Cast includes Academy Award® nominees Ryan Gosling (THE NOTEBOOK, HALF NELSON, BLUE VALENTINE) and Carey Mulligan (AN EDUCATION, WALL STREET 2: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS), three-time Emmy® Award winner Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Golden Globe® winner Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy”), Emmy® nominee Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”), Oscar Isaac (BODY OF LIES, ROBIN HOOD) and Academy Award® nominee Albert Brooks (BROADCAST NEWS, “Weeds”).

The 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Nominees Announced!

The 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Nominees Announced!

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) has announced the nominees for the 16th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. The winners will be announced at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards ceremony on Friday, January 14, 2011 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

This year’s event will again take place at the Hollywood Palladium. This is the fourth year in a row that VH1 will broadcast the gala live on the network and the first year the show will also be broadcast internationally.

“Black Swan” received an unprecedented 12 nominations for the 16th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, garnering nods for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup, Best Sound and Best Score. “True Grit” and “The King’s Speech” followed close behind with 11 nominations each, while “Inception” received 10 nominations and “The Social Network” garnered 9.

“Toy Story 3” was honored in the Best Picture and Best Animated Feature categories while two Best Picture nominees, “Inception” and “The Town,” were also recognized in the Best Action Movie category. “127 Hours,” “The Fighter” and “Winter’s Bone” also scored multiple nominations, including Best Picture.

Nicole Kidman received her record seventh acting nomination for Best Actress in “Rabbit Hole.” She won the first Critics’ Choice Award as Best Actress 15 years ago for “To Die For.” Later Kidman was nominated for Best Actress in “Cold Mountain,” “The Hours” and “Moulin Rouge,” in addition to being part of the nominated Acting Ensembles in “Nine” and “The Hours.”

Amy Adams will be seeking her second Critics’ Choice Award as a Best Supporting Actress nominee in “The Fighter.” Adams previously won the category for “Junebug” and has received three other nods from the BFCA, including one for Best Actress in “Enchanted.”

Twenty-year-old Jennifer Lawrence earned nods in both the Best Actress and Best Young Actor/Actress categories, among the four nominations for “Winter’s Bone,” while fourteen-year-old Hailee Steinfeld earned nods as both Best Supporting Actress and Best Young Actor/Actress for “True Grit,” contributing to its 11 nominations. Thirteen-year-old Chloe Grace Moretz was nominated in the Best Young Actor/Actress category twice for “Let Me In” and “Kick-Ass.”

Brothers Joel and Ethan Coen continue to be Critics’ Choice favorites, nominated jointly for Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay for “True Grit.” Previously they had shared Best Director honors for “No Country For Old Men,” and were nominated as writers of “The Man Who Wasn’t There,” “A Serious Man” and “No Country For Old Men.” “No Country For Old Men” and “Fargo” also won Critics’ Choice Awards as Best Picture.

The 250 members of the BFCA, the largest film critics’ organization in the United States and Canada, representing television, radio and online critics, selected nominees in each of 25 categories. The awards are bestowed annually to honor the finest in cinematic achievement. Eligible films were released in 2010. The accounting firm of Gregory A. Mogab tallied the written ballots.

Historically, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations. All four major acting category winners at the Academy Awards in 2010 were first Critics’ Choice Movie Awards winners in the same categories and were present at the January 15, 2010 ceremony to graciously give their first acceptance speeches of the awards season. The BFCA also recognized “The Hurt Locker” for Best Picture and Kathryn Bigelow as Best Director, making her the first female to win the award. “The Hurt Locker” and Bigelow also went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director, but were both overlooked at the Golden Globes.

Today, VH1 also announces the launch of its Critics’ Choice Movie Awards site at CriticsChoice.VH1.com. The site offers movie fans detailed information about the show and this year’s nominees, VH1.com’s Award Season Twitter Tracker, where users can see the awards show buzz that’s happening on Twitter in real time, and Quick Critic, an opportunity to share short film reviews for a prize that includes a trip for two to next year’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. Additionally, interviews with many of the acting nominees can be found on the BFCA’s site CriticsChoice.com.
