Colin Firth to win Emmy and Oscar?

2022 EMMYS PREDICTIONS:
OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES OR TV MOVIE

Is Colin Firth about to do a “double”. Colin Firth just might be on course to win both an Oscar and an Emmy for work he has released in just the last month. Early word is very promising for Colin Firth’s work on HBO’s “The Staircase” alongside Toni Collette, which could be a latecomer to a race that has so far been dominated by Michael Keaton’s work in Hulu’s “Dopesick.” – Variety.

And his work in the WW2 movie “Operation Mincemeat” now playing on Netflix is exceptional and certainly Oscarworthy.

Oscar for Colin Firth for Operation Mincemeat?

Colin Firth in Mary Poppins Returns

Netflix just released, Operation Mincemeat, starring Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen, and Johnny Flynn. 

Set in 1943 when things were make or break for the Allies fighting Hitler in Europe, the movie is based on real events. The story follows intelligence officers Ewen Montagu (Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Macfadyen) who come up with a great “headfake” strategy involving, of all things, a dead man. Their plan helped turn the tide of the whole war and may have changed the course of history.

Kelly Macdonald, Jason Isaacs, and Mark Gatiss also star and the movie was directed by John Madden. His previous work includes the Academy Award-winning Shakespeare in Love (in which Firth also starred) and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Operation Mincemeat is the director’s first movie since 2016’s Miss Sloane with Jessica Chastain. The movie comes from the same production company as The King’s Speech, the 2010 historical drama that won Firth the Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of King George VI.

And if that isn’t enough Colin Firth news for you. Maybe another Oscarworthy performance in the works?

We at least know a little bit about Sam Mendes’s follow-up to 1917, called Empire of Light, which stars Olivia Colman, Micheal Ward, and Colin Firth, and is said to be a love story set in a cinema in an English coastal town in the 1980s, but that’s about it. – Vanity Fair

Firth is an Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, SAG and Critics Choice Award winner who recently starred opposite Colman in Eva Husson’s Sony Pictures Classics drama, Mothering Sunday—toplining Harry Macqueen’s romantic drama Supernova with Stanley Tucci. The actor will next be seen John Madden’s WWII drama Operation Mincemeat and the HBO Max series The Staircase. He earned his Oscar in 2011 for his turn in Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech, having scored his first nom the year prior for his starring role in Tom Ford’s A Single Man.

The Staircase with Colin Firth

Disclaimer – The authors of this blog also run the firth.com fan website.

Some reviews are already in and most are positive. Colin Firth is back! He’s in this new series “The Staircase” with new episodes every Thursday on HBO Max.  The story is about the suspicious death of Kathleen Peterson (Toni Collette), the trial of her husband Michael (Colin Firth) and the arrival of a documentary crew from France. This Antonio Campos limited drama series is based on the 2004 true crime docuseries of the same name.

Is this the first movie Colin has played with Parker Posey? This is what the New Yorker had to say: ” In “The Staircase,” which was based in part on a docuseries of the same name, Posey plays the late Freda Black, the assistant district attorney in the murder trial of Michael Peterson (Colin Firth), a wealthy North Carolina writer whose wife, Kathleen (Toni Collette), was found dead at the bottom of their mansion stairs. Black distinguished herself in the courtroom with clownish eye makeup and pearl-clutching appeals to the jury, but Posey told me that she saw more in the character than campy antics. For one thing, Parker had never before played a fellow Southern woman.”

Stay tuned to this website for future updates every Thursday as the series progresses. And stay tuned also for our Thursday after-the-show-release watch party on zoom.

HBO Max Original Official Trailer The Staircase with Colin Firth
  • RogerEbert.com Nick Allen May 4, 2022 “The Staircase” is both a masterful moment for an assured filmmaker, and it’s the jolt that the true crime storytelling industry needs. … The ensemble work in this series is a veritable feast, of calibrated performances, framing and editing, scene after scene. Read full review
  • San Francisco Chronicle Chris Vognar May 3, 2022 “The Staircase” is exceptionally smart television, an examination of truth, guilt and self-delusion that crackles with ideas and great performances. Read full review 
  • Collider Carly Lane Apr 27, 2022 Watching this show not only makes the case for revisiting the documentary too; it demands a tandem viewing, with each successfully complementing the other in its existence. Read full review
  • Consequence Clint WorthingtonApr 27, 2022 In its painterly flourishes, and its willingness to poke at the moroseness of true crime stories from time to time, The Staircase proves gripping television. Read full review
  • The Playlist Brian Tallerico Apr 27, 2022 This story really has it all, and Campos clearly gets all of it. His obsession with the case pays off as he turns it into high drama, and high art. Read full review
  • The Daily Beast Nick Schager There’s a richness to The Staircase that’s partly due to Michael’s multifaceted and winding odyssey—before and after trial—and partly the result of Campos’ expert approach, which incorporates virtually every important aspect of this story, evokes dread, ambiguity and topsy-turviness via meticulous long-take tracking shots, and sharply delineates every one of its numerous principals and their hopelessly fraught dynamics.

  • Boston GlobeMatthew Gilbert May 5, 2022 A beautifully done miniseries, and revelatory, too, as it expands the North Carolina case into something more philosophically provocative than its sensationalistic origins might have suggested. Read full review
  • VarietyDaniel D’AddarioMay 4, 2022 This series is more concerned with asking questions than with making statements. It follows the evidence where it leads: What’s refreshing is that that evidence is less about guilt or innocence in a case on which the court has ruled, but about the strangeness and unknowability of the human heart. Read full review ABC NewsPeter TraversMay 6, 2022 
  • Chicago TribuneMichael Phillips May 5, 2022 Exceptionally good. Amid a river of true-crime dramatizations featuring big names side-eyeing their co-stars while contemplating murder, or their characters’ tragically misunderstood innocence, this one knows what it’s doing. It sets a tone, gets everybody in the same movie and focuses on character interaction in long, fluid takes, glance by glance, bizarre development by development. Read full revie
  • The A.V. Club Alison Foreman May 6, 2022 Through this churn of grief-stricken family turmoil and legal strategizing, The Staircase has begun a treacherous ascent toward saying something truly meaningful. It’s messy and massive in both scope and ambition. But whether that effort will be enough to justify retrying this case remains to be seen. Read full review 
  • IndieWireBen Travers Apr 27, 2022 Campos trusts his cast to find the right notes, while coordinating the timelines so the black comic bits never overwhelm the story’s urgent drama. Together, these human elements work to reinforce the series’ examination of subjectivity. Read full review 
  • New York Magazine (Vulture)Jen ChaneyMay 6, 2022 It’s hard to imagine gleaning something new from a subject that’s already been explored via multiple hours of television. But The Staircase, which casts Colin Firth in the role of Michael and Toni Collette as Kathleen, defies expectations, adding new perspective and dimension to a well-known story while creating an experience that differs from the docuseries. Read full review
  • The Oregonian Kristi Turnquist May 5, 2022 As Michael Peterson, Colin Firth manages to make us think he’s guilty as hell one minute, and possibly innocent the next. Toni Collette is touching as Kathleen. And while many a series has caused eyes to glaze over when the plot shifts to younger characters, the dynamics among grown children in this extended family are consistently absorbing. Read full review 
  • The GuardianLucy ManganMay 5, 2022 All in all, a staircase well worth climbing. Read full review
  • DeciderJoel Keller May 5, 2022 As a whole, The Staircase is a worthwhile watch, mainly for the performances by Firth, Posey and Collette. But you might get more satisfying information about the Peterson case by watching the documentary or docuseries. Read full review
  • The Telegraph Anita Singh May 5, 2022 The series takes its time to uncover the problems going on beneath the surface of this family. Kathleen is played in flashback by Toni Collette, giving us a chance to understand the victim in a way that the documentary could never deliver. Read full review
  • CNNBrian Lowry May 5, 2022 While the episodes occasionally grind too slowly, Colin Firth’s riveting work as the hard-to-read suspect elevates this HBO Max limited series several steps above standard true-crime fare. Read full review 
  • Vanity FairRichard Lawson May 4, 2022 The Staircase, especially in the reenactment scenes I mentioned, is not easy viewing. But it steadily builds into something vital, a calmly observational dissection of known and unknown things. Read full review
  • Time Judy Berman Apr 27, 2022 With additional context comes an even greater sense that no secondhand account of what happened on that staircase—whether generated by the prosecution, the defense, or Lestrade—will ever approach the objective truth. The linchpin of this delicate portrayal is Colin Firth’s performance as Michael. … Although the multiple graphic set pieces that dramatize various theories of how Kathleen died struck me as excessively invasive, for the most part, the flashbacks work to restore her personhood. Read full review
  • USA TodayKelly Lawler May 4, 2022 Firth feels a bit too handsome and wholesome to play a potential murderer at first, but he effectively imbues Michael with sleaze. He’s fascinating to watch it only because it’s such a departure for him. Read full review
  • Chicago Sun-TimesRichard Roeper May 3, 2022 This is a well-written drama with clearly defined characters, but it still took me a couple of episodes to figure out everyone’s place on the complicated family tree. … Toni Collette gives Kathleen a voice through the flashback sequences, and the young actors playing their children are all excellent. “The Staircase” keeps us in its grips throughout. Read full review
  • Los Angeles Times Robert Lloyd May 5, 2022 It covers miles more ground, is not without ideas and marshals the power of HBO to gather stars, budget and screen time. And is good, if at times unavoidably problematic. Read full review

  • Washington PostInkoo Kang May 5, 2022 In the end, its pleasures are rather cerebral, less a whodunit than a story about telling stories — and the omissions in hopeful service of a greater truth. Read full review
  • The Independent Nick Hilton Apr 27, 2022 Campos brings visual panache to the project – interspersing, for example, scenes of a fundraiser for Peterson’s abortive mayoral campaign with a walkthrough of the crime scene by a squad of forensic experts – but can never quite surmount the old aphorism that truth is stranger than fiction. Read full review
  • Wall Street Journal John Anderson May 4, 2022 It’s a complicated case, one that probably deserved its eight episodes to lay out properly, but Mr. Campos hardly makes economical use of his time. The frequent flashings back and forth in time are confusing, the relationships between Peterson family members are never sufficiently explained. … Mr. Firth and Ms. Collette, as the loving couple who may have hated each other, are playing complex characters with Emmy-worthy aplomb. … But they find themselves in the middle of a messy business. Read full review
  • Paste Magazine Shane Ryan May 4, 2022 Firth and Collette are “good,” I guess, and so is the rest of the cast, from Michael Stuhlbarg as the defense attorney David Rudolf to Sophie Turner as Margaret Ratliff, but there is just nothing here to draw interest, much less sustain it, and good actors with no material are like jugglers having to pantomime the balls. Impressive, but only for about 10 seconds. In two words, this is dull fare.

And these are the reviews of the original French documentary (we’ll try and dig it up)

New York Magazine (Vulture)

Whet Moser Makes a compelling companion piece to Netflix’s hit series in its remarkable similarities and considerable differences. On the most basic level, it’s like a proof of concept for the documentary serials that follow. Read full review

Chicago Tribune

Maureen Ryan The documentary keeps adding layers of complexity to the tale until one is entirely hooked by its ambiguities and twists and turns — and soon, as with a great novel, one can’t wait to see what happens next.

USA Today

Village Voice

Joy Press Lestrade’s cameras pull us farther into the legal system than Law & Order or Court TV ever could, and the result is chilling. Read full review

Los Angeles Times

Robert Lloyd It’s a splendid piece of cinema-verite storytelling, fascinating, thought-provoking and dramatically clear, and no less popcorn-compelling for being leisurely and long. Read full review

The New York Times

Virginia Heffernan It may seem ludicrous to say that a movie running more than six hours is well edited, but The Staircase, by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade, is. And not only is the editing prize-worthy, but the whole film is also so brilliantly conceived, reported, filmed and paced that you may come to wish it were twice as long. Read full review

Newsweek

Tony Dokoupil The Staircase is the scariest portrait of criminal justice since the nonfiction film that helped launch the modern innocence movement, Errol Morris’s The Thin Blue Line. It’s scarier, in fact, because The Staircase isn’t based on re-creations but on original footage, a front-row view of legal truth as it’s feathered into existence, manufactured from guesses and conjecture, and sold to a jury as more or less believable fiction. Read full review

The A.V. Club

Nathan Rabin There’s a surprising amount of humor in the series, as when a sassy male prostitute admits in court that his client base included many professionals, including attorneys and at least one judge, but the series’ power, gravity, and urgency come because viewers are never allowed to forget that a man’s life and a family’s future is at stake.

Will Smith cries, apologizes during best actor speech

Will Smith was in tears when he accepted his award for best actor during Sunday’s ceremony. His win came less than an hour after he slapped presenter Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Smith said he was a “fierce defender” of his family, just like his character Richard Williams in “King Richard.”

“I’ve been called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people and I know to do what we do you got to be able to take abuse, you’ve got to be able to let people talk crazy about you, you have to be able to have people disrespecting you and you’ve got to smile and pretend that that’s okay,” he said, seeming to refer to the incident with Rock.

He apologized to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as well as his fellow nominees, saying “I want to be a vessel for love” and “love will make you do crazy things.” He didn’t mention Rock.

Smith lifted his award to end his speech, “I hope the Academy invites me back.”

Will Smith hits Chris Rock over joke about wife Jada Pinkett Smith

Will Smith slaps actor Chris Rock onstage during the 94th Oscars at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on March 27, 2022.

Will Smith slaps actor Chris Rock onstage

Will Smith took umbrage with a joke made by Chris Rock during the Academy Award ceremony Sunday, marching up on stage and slapping Rock mid-presentation of the award for best documentary.

Rock poked fun at Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith for her bald head. Pinkett-Smith has openly talked about having a hair loss condition. After Smith hit him, Rock said: “Will Smith just smacked the s— out of me.”

Smith repeatedly yelled at Rock to “Keep my wife’s name out of your f—– mouth.”

This is not the first time that Rock has poked fun at the couple. He made public jabs about their decision to boycott the 2016 Oscars because of a lack of diversity in nominations.

Rock has declined to press charges, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The Academy honors the people of Ukraine

The Academy held a moment of silence for the people of Ukraine, who are under attack by Russian forces.

“We’d like to have a moment of silence to show our support for the people of Ukraine currently facing invasion, conflict and prejudice within their own borders,” an onscreen statement said.

“While film is an important avenue for us to express our humanity in times of conflict, the reality is millions of families in Ukraine need food, medical care, clean water, and emergency services. Resources are scarce, and we — collectively as a global community — can do more,” the text continued.

“We ask you to support Ukraine in any way you are able,” the statement added.

Directly after the moment of silence came an advertisement for cryptocurrency site Crypto.com. The ad said Crypto.com is matching donations in support of Ukraine.

Independent Spirit Awards

The 37th Independent Spirit Awards will air live on Sunday, March 6 on IFC, with the broadcast beginning at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT. The event this year remains an early afternoon affair on the beach — and well ahead of the Oscars, which it usually precedes by a mere day.

Indie film lovers without cable can watch IFC live on the following services, several of which offer free trials: Philo, fuboTV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, AT&T TV, and the IFC app. For those who prefer to stream the show, the ceremony will also be available on AMC+, which has exclusive streaming rights this year.
