  • Yesterday was revealed the 30th Film Independent Spirit Award nominations and Foxcatcher earned something called a “Special Distinction Award“. The film was ineligible due to Film Independent’s $20 million ceiling on budgets.

    In 2006, the board determined a budget ceiling of $20 million, including post-production work. (Before that, budgets went as high as $22 million.) The rules state that any variations are at the sole discretion of the nominating committee and Film Independent.

    The org does not define “independent” solely on financial terms. A studio film can be considered an indie “if the subject matter is original and provocative,” according to Film Independent. In terms of financing, the org looks for “economy of means” and “percentage of financing from independent sources.”

    The film needs to be American, which means it has a U.S. citizen or permanent resident in at least two of three categories: director, writer and producer. Alternately, a film can be considered American if it is set primarily in the U.S. and at least 70% financed by U.S.-based companies. Everything else is considered international.
    Film Independent criteria

    Begin Again, unfortunately, was completely ignored.

    The awards ceremony is traditionally held the day before the Oscar ceremony, in the case of next year, it’s Feb. 21 on the beach in Santa Monica, Calif. and will air live on IFC at 2 PM PT/ 5 PM. ET

  • Last Sunday (November 16) Mark appeared on CBS Sunday Profile, for another amazing interview.

    Actor Mark Ruffalo is a man of many talents — as Anthony Mason discovers in our Sunday Profile. The actor Mark Ruffalo was a championship wrestler in high school. For his role in the new film “Foxcatcher,” he goes back to the mat. Was it the most physical role he’s had? “Oh yeah, it was tough,” he said. “I was in a lot of pain and I hurt myself a lot.” (Read more)

  • In many ways, Mark Ruffalo saved the best for last this year.

    When “The Normal Heart” premiered to critical hosannas (and ultimately a slew of Emmy nominations, including one for Ruffalo), his performance as Ned Weeks seemed incapable of being topped. Ruffalo found the heart under the prickly exterior of the Larry Kramer manqué in the writer’s fictionalized retelling of the early days of the AIDS crisis in New York City and the founding of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis. Fearless and furious (much as the real Kramer), Ruffalo’s Ned is also capable of heart-rending vulnerability, as when he nurses his dying husband and rages against the bureaucracy that willingly turns a blind eye to the deaths of thousands of homosexual men.

    And then came “Foxcatcher.”

    Ruffalo also had a charming, affable leading-man turn in “Begin Again” this year, as a weary record label exec whose passion for music is reignited by a young singer-songwriter, but his turn as real-life Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz in Bennett Miller’s retelling of a bizarre true story is a prime example of an actor at the peak of his powers.

    A former wrestler himself, Ruffalo took on the role partly because he had never seen the sport represented on film in the way he knew it to be. But a righty 46-year-old playing a lefty 33-year-old presented its own particular challenges.
