La cinta mexicana La Parka figura en la lista de los ocho finalistas que optan a la nominación en la categoría de mejor cortometraje documental en la 87 edición de los Premios Oscar®, anunció hoy la Academia de Hollywood.

Ese filme del Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica de México es una obra de Gabriel Serra Argüello, autor del guion y director, quien presenta al espectador la historia de un empleado de un matadero (rastro frigorífico) y su relación con la muerte desde hace 25 años.

La Parka (The Reaper, en inglés) fue elegido por los miembros del área documental de la Academia como uno de los finalistas de entre 58 producciones aceptadas a concurso para los Oscar® este año.

Al menos tres de los títulos seleccionados obtendrán una nominación, aunque este número podría ascender hasta cinco en función del nivel de los contendientes y las puntuaciones finales de los académicos.

Además de La Parka, resultaron elegidos en esta fase previa a las nominaciones Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1, Joanna, Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace, The Lion's Mouth Opens, One Child, Our Curse y White Earth.

La Academia revelará el nombre de los nominados a la 87 edición de los Oscar el próximo 15 de enero en una breve ceremonia en el teatro Samuel Goldwyn, en su sede de Beverly Hills.

Neil Patrick Harris será el anfitrión de los premios Oscar® en 2015

Es parte de uno de los deseos de mi vida que ahora podré hacer realidad, dice el actor de “How I Met Your Mother”

El actor estadounidense Neil Patrick Harris será el anfitrión de la entrega 87 de los Oscar® en febrero 2015, según informaron este miércoles los productores del evento a través del sitio oficial de los premios de la Academia.

“Estamos emocionados de contar con Neil para que sea el que conduzca los Oscar”, aseguraron Craig Zadan y Neil Meron, productores de los Oscar.

“Conocemos toda su vida adulta, y hemos visto cómo se desarrolla, como un gran actor en películas, televisión y en teatro. El trabajar con él en los premios será la tormenta perfecta: todos sus recursos y talentos juntos en un escenario global”.

El actor, de 41 años, mencionó que “es un honor y emoción el que me ofrecieran conducir los Premios de la Academia. Crecí viendo la ceremonia y siempre he tenido admiración de algunas de las más grandes actuaciones del evento”.

“El que se me hayan considerado estar en lugares donde han pasado grandes como Johnny Carson, Billy Crystal, Elleden DeGeneres y todos los que han tenido la fortuna de conducir los preimos, es parte de uno de los deseos de mi vida que ahora podré hacer realidad”, añadió Patrick Harris.

La presidenta de la Academia, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, dijo que le daba la bienvenida al actor: “es un artista consumado. Su carisma distintivo y su figura en el escenario lo hace el anfitrión ideal para hacerle honor a la legacía de los Oscar y asegurarnos que todos disfrutemos de una celebración inolvidable”.

Harris ha disfrutado de una carrera exitosa en la industria del entretenimiento. Actualmente, se encuentra en carteleras protagonizando junto a Ben Affleck y Rosamund Pike la altamente aclamada película Gone Girl de David Fincher.

El actor recibió múltiples nominaciones al Emmy y a los Globos de Oro por su papel como Barney Stinson en la exitosa serie de televisión How I Met Your Mother, y ganó un Emmy por su papel en Glee, en 2010.

También obtuvo un Premio Tony como Mejor Actor en un Musical por su participación en Hedwig and the Angry Inch, que se exhibió en Broadway.

Harris ya ha sido anfitrión de los Emmy en su edición 61 y 65, además de conducir los Premios Tony en sus entregas 63, 66 y 67, lo que le valió ganar cuatro Emmys.

Recientemente, Harris se convirtió en autor con el lanzamiento de su autobiografía Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography. 

En septiembre pasado y luego de 10 años de noviazgo, el actor y su pareja David Burtka contrajeron matrimonio en Italia, con el que cría a unos gemelos.

Las últimas dos transmisiones de los Oscar, producidas por Zadan y Meron, tuvieron altos niveles de audiencia.

Los Oscar® 2015 se llevarán a cabo en el Teatro Dolby® de Hollywood, y serán televisados a más de 225 países en febrero de 2015.

100° aniversario del nacimiento de Thor Heyerdhal: El día en que ganó un Premio Oscar

MUNDO.- Hoy es el 100° aniversario del nacimiento de Thor Heyerdahl , el científico noruego, apasionado por las teorías, que decidido a echar por tierra las afirmaciones de esa época, emprendió en 1947 un viaje desde Perú hacia las islas de la Polinesia. Descubrí cómo terminó ganando un Premio Oscar .

Valiéndose de una sencilla barca construida con materiales autóctonos, navegó 4700 millas desde la costa peruana hasta las Islas Tuamotu. Tripulada por seis hombres –contando entre ellos a Heyerdahl-, desafió durante 101 días la ferocidad de tiburones, junto a la soledad y los peligros del Pacífico.

 Esta expedición demostró que no había razones técnicas para negar que los habitantes de América del Sur se hubieran establecido en las islas de la Polinesia. La personalidad carismática del autor de tales afirmaciones,  transmitía una curiosidad científica imposible de ignorar.

El libro que él mismo escribiera, fue la base para la filmación del documental noruego "Kon-Tiki” basado en la expedición. Escrito y dirigido por Heyerdahl, se presentó en Suecia, Noruega, Finlandia y Dinamarca en 1950, seguido por los Estados Unidos en 1951.

Comienza con una introducción en la que se explica su teoría, continúa con la construcción de la balsa y su lanzamiento desde Perú. A partir de allí se muestran las peripecias vividas por este grupo de seis intrépidos navegantes en el Océano Pacífico. La cinta está grabada en blanco y negro –existen unas pocas tomas a color-, fue realizada con una sencilla cámara de 16mm y tiene una duración de 77 minutos.


El escalofriante testimonio de la proeza se hizo merecedor del Premio Oscar de la Academia, otorgado a la Mejor Película Documental en 1951, en su edición número 24. (Redacción El Intransigente)

Hay una nueva versión de la historia llevada al cine, te invito a ver el tráiler…

El origen de los premios Oscar

Encontré este video en UnoTV Bites y me parece muy interesante compartirlo con ustedes. Debo señalar que hay una imprecisión importante y es en relación a las sedes donde se ha llevado a cabo la famosa ceremonia de la entrega de los premios Oscar de la Academia. Aprovecho la oportunidad más abajo para detallar este tema…



La primera entrega se hizo en un banquete el 16 de mayo de 1929 en el Blossom Room del Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (en Hollywood Blvd. y Orange).

De las 2ª a la 15ª se llevaron cabo o en el Biltmore Hotel, de la ciudad de Los Ángeles o en el Ambassador Hotel de la misma ciudad californiana.

Fue hasta la 16ª ceremonia celebrada el 2 de marzo de 1944 en que el legendario teatro chino -Grauman's Chinese Theatre-, del no menos icónico Hollywood Boulevard fue la sede del Oscar, y sólo por tres años.

Para la 19ª la sede fue el Shrine Civic Auditorium, de Los Ángeles.

A partir de 23 de marzo de 1950 cuando se efectuó la ceremonia número 22, la sede del Oscar (Por 10 años) fue otro gran ícono de Hollywood, el RKO Pantages Theatre, que fue hogar de la entrega de la codiciada estatuilla hasta 1960 en la 32ª ceremonia.

A partir de la 33ª las sedes fueron el entre otras el Auditorio de Santa Mónica, el Shrine Auditorium & Expo Center, pero sobre todo el Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, de Los Angeles County Music Center.


Fue hasta la 74ª ceremonia celebrada el 24 de marzo de 2002 que la sede para la entrega de los premios Oscar se trasladó al Kodak Theatre, en Hollywood & Highland hoy Dolby Theatre y que sigue siendo el recinto oficial de la noche del Oscar.

El Teatro Dolby, la nueva casa del Oscar

Para quienes tienen un interés en una relación detallada de la ceremonias, aquí una lista completa has ta la ceremonia no. 80 celebrada en 2008. Hoy la sede sigue siendo el Dolby Theatre antes Kodak Theatre y ubicado en el complejo de Hollywood y Highland sobre el Hollywood Blvd.
