Voice-acting gigs were not always seen as plum jobs and voice actors often didn’t receive the same respect accorded other performers. That started to shift in 1992 when Robin Williams gave one of the most memorable voice performances as the Genie in “Aladdin.”
“A lot of people think it’s like an Adr process, like a post process when you’re directing a vocal performance,” says Tom McGrath, the helmer behind “Boss Baby” and the “Madagascar” films. “The main thing is to create a safe place for the actors so they can try things. As a director

The rest of the field for Best Picture has a variety of genres and themes. Christopher Nolan’s epic “Dunkirk” shares the stage with Greta Gerwig’s intent autobiographical “Lady Bird,” Guillermo Del Toro’s magical “The Shape of Water” and the strange-but-heralded “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The symbolic horror of “Get Out” got first time director Jordan Peele a nomination (joining first timer Greta Gerwig), the late Harry Dean Stanton was recognized for Best Actor in “Lucky,” and Willem Dafoe got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for “The Florida Project.
Christopher Plummer for All the Money in the World. And here we said it as a joke. We didn't know anyone had even seen All the Money in the World yet -- since Plummer filmed his parts last month -- but he somehow managed a nomination. (Which means Michael Stuhlbarg was snubbed for Call Me By Your Name.) Really, all the love for All the Money in the World, which also included nominations for Best Actress for Michelle Williams and Best Director
“Three Billboards,” a revenge drama, “The Post,” a dramatic re-telling of the Pentagon Papers saga, and “The Shape of Water,” an offbeat story about the romance between a mute cleaning lady and a fish-like creature, earned best film and director nods, in addition to picking up nominations for the performances of several of its actors. “The Shape of Water” nabbed a leading seven nominations, while “Three Billboards” and “The Post” picked up six apiece. The other best drama nominees were Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” and Luca Guadagnino’s lyrical romance “Call Me by Your Name.”

There were also some surprises in store, as Raw (an artistically disturbing French cannibal horror feature seemingly forgotten about during this awards season, and disappointingly so as it’s one of the most overlooked and flat-out best films of the year) managed to secure nominations in both Best Foreign Language Film and Most Promising Filmmaker (a conversation Julia Ducournau definitely deserves to be in alongside popular hopefuls Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele). Beloved character actor Harry Dean Stanton (most of you probably remember him as
"We are thrilled to reach this extraordinary benchmark as we come to the end of an amazing, record-setting year. Surpassing five billion dollars in a single year can only happen with an incredible level of hard work across all theatrical divisions, as well as
That’s not to suggest the original “Jumanji” was such an unspeakably terrible thing — Joe Johnston has always known how to serve a fine bowl of popcorn entertainment — but rather to say that no one should ever have to write the words: “The original ‘Jumanji.’” And while it’s nice that this new adventure has virtually nothing to do with the first one, “The Lego Batman Movie” screenwriter Chris McKenna leveraging the franchise’s most basic
This year the group is in a position to help cull the list of contenders further, after the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. once again found a way to recognize pretty much everything in contention. That said, bear in mind that this is a tight-knit group of press members whose picks are not necessarily indicative of the tastes of a nearly 8,000-person Academy of film professionals.
Case in point, last year’s big winner: “La La Land” walked away with a
Each critic submitted their top five picks in the following categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Ensemble, and Breakthrough in any category, Best Screenplay, and Best Documentary. Two additional categories were added this year for Best Animated Feature and Best Use of Music making a total of twelve (12) categories.
From these submissions, each entry was given a point value and the top five
The No. 1 movie of the year on Apple’s iTunes was Disney’s “Moana,” followed by Disney/Lucafilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and Warner Bros. “Wonder Woman.”
In TV, perennial favorites HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” were the top three programs. New series charting in 2017 included HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” PBS’s “Victoria” and FX’s “The Americans.”
On Apple Music, Drake had the No. 1 album of the year with “More Life,” while Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” scored the most-downloaded song. Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” has already rocketed to No. 3 on the 2017 top album ranking since its Nov. 10 release
It’s been a big year for Warner Bros. at the box office, featuring some big surprise hits and some more obvious wins. On Tuesday, the studio announced that this is the eighth time in nine years that they have made more than $4 billion in a year.
Contributing to its box office takings are the likes of Wonder Woman ($821 million), It surprising everyone with $694 million, Justice League currently at $570 million, Kong: Skull Island at $566 million, and Dunkirk with an impressive $525 million.
Beyond these titles there were three other WB movies that made more than $250 million in 2017. The Lego Batman Movie, Annabelle: Creation, and Blade Runner 2049 all contributed to the impressive total.
“We are thrilled to reach this extraordinary benchmark as we come to the end of an amazing, record-setting year,” Sue Kroll,
The studio made the announcement on Tuesday, noting that it’s also the eighth time in the last nine years that Warner Bros. has earned more than $4 billion in a single year.
The announcement came five days after Disney proclaimed it had topped $5 billion worldwide for the third year in a row.
Warner Bros. noted that it had five titles take in more than $500 million worldwide with “Kong: Skull Island,” “Wonder Woman,” “Dunkirk,” “It,” and “Justice League.” Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman” leads the list with $821 million with “It” at $694 million, “Justice League” at $570 million, “Kong: Skull Island” at $566 million, and “Dunkirk” at $525 million.
Warner Bros. has not disclosed the budget on “Justice League” — which launched mid-November and is still doing decent business. Some estimates

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The Lego® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure.
Of course, it didn’t help that the Annie voters left “The Lego Batman Movie” off its list of best animated feature nominations on Monday, but there’s still time to coax the Academy into an Oscar nomination. IndieWire critic David Ehrlich passionately argued his case, but nobody gets more animated about “Lego Batman” than director Chris McKay.
What Lego Does Best
“We look for things that other movies can’t do,” McKay said. “That’s our job in making a Lego movie. What story can you only tell with this medium? And I wanted to do an emotional story about Batman
