In Praise Of… Olivia Colman

So Olivia Colman, Oscar winner, and a big one too, Best Actress for The Favourite. She was already lining up to be our new National Treasure, this has now pushed her over the line. There's lots of radio comedy. I just discovered the other day a BBC Radio 4 sitcom she starred in as about […]

'The Favourite' Review: Great Performances Cannot Save This Quirky Drama

Awards season is in full bloom, and one of the films expected to be in the running for most of them is The Favourite. The latest from director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster), this is the period piece turned on its head a bit. While most period pieces cannot avoid a certain level of stuffiness, this one […]

Olivia Colman Addresses Night Manger Spinoff And Bond Speculation

After her role in the recent series The Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, actress Olivia Colman has gotten more popular outside of the U.K. The three-time BAFTA award winner (Accused, Twenty Twelve, Broadchurch) has been talked about for both a spin-off of her character Angela Burr and as a possible Bond candidate.

Steven Moffat And Chris Chibnall Make The MediaGuardian 100

Twitter Berates BAFTA For Stupid Olivia Colman Snub, And Rightly So

I intended to file this story after my previous BAFTA post, but the day got away with me. Still, while I've been detained, things have only stepped up a gear. Missing conspicuously from this year's BAFTA nominations was Olivia Colman, the female lead in Tyrannosaur, and probably best known for her TV work with Mitchell […]

Some Really Great Films Won At The British Independent Film Awards

Going into tonight's British Independent Film Awards, Shame, Tyrannosaur and Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy were leading the pack with seven nominations apiece. Coming out… not so even anymore. So, from the BIFA press release, if you'll pardon the SHOUTY formatting. BEST BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM – TYRANNOSAUR BEST DIRECTOR – Lynne Ramsay – WE NEED TO […]

Full Trailer For Meryl Streep's Thatcher Film, The Iron Lady

Colour me unsurprised that the full trailer for The Iron Lady has made its debut through the website of The Daily Mail. It's no more shocking that they've bungled the premiere somewhat. At the moment, the video title displays with some user unfriendly jargon – the name of the codec and so on – and […]

Exclusive Interview With Olivia Colman: Arrietty, Tyrannosaur And More

If you have even a smidgen of taste in comedy then you'll already be familiar with Olivia Colman, who played Mark's on-off (mostly off) girlfriend in Peep Show, PC Doris Thatcher in Hot Fuzz and harassed mum-of-many Harriet Schulenberg in Green Wing. Lately, however, Colman's career has begun to move into more serious drama with […]

Paddy Considine To Write And Direct The Leaning, Last Years Of The Locust

Paddy Considine is currently at Sundance for the premiere of his feature-length directorial debut, Tyrannosaur. The film is proving to be a critical hit, and a number of exciting, positive reviews have popped up. While Total Film haven't published their verdict on the film yet, they have, however, scraped their Considine interview for newsy quotes, and […]
