Let’s begin today with our first 2016 sighting of Cary Fukunaga who was in New York last night to receive the National Board of Review’s Freedom of Expression Award for Beasts Of No Nation. Not sure if Cary will be at the Golden Globes this weekend since Beasts was only nominated once for Idris Elba in the Supporting Actor category but the big prize is Oscar and Netflix is hoping that its first feature might be included on the list for Best Picture. Full Story

Idris Elba is in New York. Check him out, fine as f-ck, walking around in a red beanie yesterday. Earlier this week, Idris, Abraham Attah, and Cary Fukunaga were promoting Beasts Of No Nation at TimesTalks. Netflix is doing whatever they can to make these nominations happen. What didn’t happen is Idris being named the Sexiest Man Alive. Full Story

Oh hi, good morning. New York Times profile on Cary Fukunaga, are you still with me or have you just lost yourself in this photo? Cary continues to promote Beasts Of No Nation. The film has been strongly reviewed. Netflix is launching an Oscar campaign behind it. It’s currently available on Netflix and opened in selected theatres but made no money, something he always expected. Full Story

Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts Of No Nation was screened at the Directors Guild Of America last night in LA as Netflix continues to push for award consideration. Abraham Attah was there to represent the cast but no Idris Elba – he’s probably still working on Star Trek, because otherwise, if not for scheduling conflicts, there’s no way he would miss time on the campaign circuit. Full Story

I heard some industry folks at TIFF sh*t-talking Netflix for allegedly overpaying for Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation, Netflix’s first original feature film. They were of the opinion that Netflix will keep overpaying for movies and go bust, but just a few years ago TV executives were saying the same thing, and now look where we are. Full Story

As mentioned several weeks before the start of TIFF, the Beasts Of No Nation carpet was the one big ask I put to our producers at etalk. The request was granted. On Sunday night I was in first position at the premiere. This was the 5th or 6th time I’ve interviewed Idris. Did I ever tell you that I once interviewed him and Charlie Hunnam together? Me, in a small room with Idris and Charlie. Full Story

The last time I was in Canada I gave Lainey the gears because Canada’s money seemed fake and like something from Monopoly. I went to the bank yesterday to get some fake Canada money for my trip to TIFF and somehow, despite redesigning the paper bills, it’s still adorably pretend board game money. Full Story
