    Shorts Monthly: First Timers Dominate this Year's Oscar Short Film Derby

    In the live action, animation and documentary short film categories of the 81st Annual Academy Awards, only one nominated director has a track record. Documentary filmmaker Steven Okazaki, who helmed "The Conscience of Nhem En," already has two previous nominations and an Oscar on his curriculum vitae. The remaining twenty men and women hoping to take home a golden statue on February 22, 2009 are suiting up in their tuxes and donning their designer gowns to walk the red carpet at the Kodak Theatre for the very first time. No matter who gets to give a televised acceptance speech on Sunday, every single one of the filmmakers' careers has bee...

    Oscar '09: "The Reader" Director Stephen Daldry

    Though literary works are catnip to filmmakers, it's always dicey to reinvent one for the screen. Witness "Revolutionary Road," which will send the unwary viewer reaching for the Welbutrin, despite the best efforts of Kate and Leo, reunited for first time since the boat went down. Trouble is, what often gets lost in the translation to screen is the element which can raise a dark book above merely depressing: language, a writer's capital. Of course, very occasionally a film adaptation can be better than the novel - the case with "The English Patient," which retained the original's powerfully haunting tone, while spelling out the novel's bur...

    Oscar '09: "Milk"'s Dustin Lance Black

    While attending a party with both gay and straight members of the film and music communities last weekend in Los Angeles, I was struck by the parallels between the current post-Prop 8 environment and the anti-gay Prop 6 that late San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk campaigned to defeat in the '70s. "There were no gay people shown in the early anti-8 commercials," one attendee told me over the weekend. "They made it an abstract rights issue, while the pro-8 people made it personal. It was only after [the Yes vote] went up in the polls that they started rolling out Ellen [DeGeneres] on TV." As seen in Gus Vant Sant's new film, ""Milk," Harvey ...
