Up and Comers Presents: The Breakout Stars of 2013

Another year has come and gone and we have once again been introduced to a brand new crop of future movie stars and Oscar winners. The Class of 2013 skewed older and a bit more mainstream, and surprisingly, we were actually able to correctly predict that several of them would have amazing years. Of course, newcomers still popped up to surprise us and Hollywood and the world, and that’s the fun of it. As always, the hardest part of compiling this list is narrowing them down, and we’ve had toRead More
The last high profile precursor before the Oscars themselves have announced and the Golden Globe nominations confirm: it’s “12 Years a Slave” vs “American Hustle” in this year’s race. Both films picked up seven nominations each, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and a slew of acting nominations. Lupita Nynog’o and Jennifer Lawrence continue to be the strongest acting nominations representing their respective movies, hitting just about every precursor so far and both showing up in Best Supporting Actress here. The Best Supporting Actor category is also full ofRead More

Greta Gerwig has proven herself to be the darling of a very specific 20-something Woody Allen-esque Brooklyn hipster set of the indie film industry over the past couple of years (and we love her for it), and it appears her next film is more of her doing what she does best. Noah Baumbach’s black and white comedy “Frances Ha” played to mostly positive reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and now we finally have our first glimpse of Gerwig in the film she also co-wrote with Baumbach.Read More
