Quote:
L'Uomo Vogue doubles for the Academy Award, with two cover stories: Alec Baldwin, the host of the Oscars, and Jeff Bridges, nominated for Best Actor

On the eve of the 82nd edition of the Oscars, L'Uomo Vogue celebrates Hollywood with a special issue dedicated to actors, directors, screenwriters and other prominent professionals who share a common feature: they have all received one (or more) nominations for the prestigious Oscar statuette.

On the two covers, Alec Baldwin and Jeff Bridges. The former will host, with Steve Martin, the event that will be held next Sunday at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles; the latter was four times really close to victory. And this year he is among the favorites in the Best actor in a leading role category, thanks to his amazing performance in Crazy Heart.

On the cover Alec Baldwin photographed by Pierpaolo Ferrari. Shirt and bowtie, Ralph Lauren. Hat, Borsalino. Jeff Bridges photographed by Mark Seliger. Fashion editor Rushka Bergman.

But hey, at least they have changed the cover headline to something that doesn't include the word "unique".

After the definitive refusal to do Spider-man 4, the actor of Brothers say he is "extremely excited" at the idea of being able to move into a genre of cinema which has not yet been widely explored. Whilst his own production agency grows in strength

With a Marine's figure, a seriously attractive face and his wild-eyed look, Toby Maguire's role as Captain Sam Cahill in Brothers is far from the romantic nerd from the Spiderman trilogy, one of the roles which first made him famous. Yet there are mixed opinions about his interpretations of Jim Sheridan's film: In Variety's review it is noted that his explosion of rage (the climax of the film) is "mechanic", yet it was the intensity of this same piece which won him the nomination at the Golden Globes and sparked a media buzz which suggested him as a possible candidate for an Oscar. In preparation for the role Maguire spent time at Camp Pendleton in California and also analysed, through talking to army medics and psychologists, the effect of trauma caused by war. He also lost nine kilos for the part. "It was hard, but I think it was necessary in order to visually portray how much he had gone through and it really helped me to get into the part."

Tahar Tahim is the protagonist in the latest Jacques Audiard film, A Prophet, in which he plays the part of a young imprisoned Arab. It is a role which has consecrated him as the new promise of French Cinema

Last year Tahar Rahim arrived on the Croisette as a perfect stranger, and left as the new promise of French cinema. He convinced the press and jury of his talent with his role as leading man in A Prophet, a prison movie by French director Jacques Aurdiard, winner of the Grand Prix by the jury at Cannes, nominated for 13 Cesar awards and currently running for Best Foreign Picture at the Oscars.

Thanks to that role, the young French actor of Algerian descent has made a great leap toward stardom yet still describes himself as a simple person, a "country boy." Born 28 years ago in a small French town on the border with Switzerland Tahar Rahim discovered the world through television. When he announced his desire to become an actor to his parents he was met with unexpected support.

So began the difficult years when Tahar divided his time between nights at random jobs and days of acting school. In 2007, a fateful encounter with Jacques Audiard marked a turning point in his acting career. "With what Audiard taught me, I learned to find a foothold within myself. I learned to walk on my own legs, to dive so deeply into a role to forget that I'm acting."

In his new Precious, the director explores, as in his previous films, uncomfortable topics: poverty, gender, abuse and degradation

Lee Daniels' films are hard to watch. And yet, considering the awards, acclaim, and box office sales of his most recent and rawest work, Precious, it's just as difficult to look away. This is all fine with Daniels, a black homosexual from the projects of Philadelphia, who transforms "nobodies" into the protagonists of impressively dramatic films.

His latest film is based on the novel by Sapphire about an illiterate sixteen year old in Harlem during the 80s who is impregnated by her father and is mentally and physically abused by her mother. The film has had quite a season: three Sundance awards, three Golden Globe nominations, and six Oscar nominations including Best Director and Best Picture.

In all of Daniels' films, including his debut Shadowboxer, there is no escaping the dark side. "My technique is to start talking nonchalantly about sex, drugs, sunglasses, or wine or whatever and then say 'action!' To create a perfect tone before turning on the camera. This is my secret weapon," explains the director.

The German actor debuted in cinema in 2009 with The White Ribbon by Michael Haneke, which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes and is currently nominated for an Oscar as the best foreign film. For years he performed in the local theaters of Hanover and Dresden, but since Cannes everything has changed. "Famous? I haven't yet noticed being so. Hankeke's rehearsals are true life experiences, they last for days, over the corse of which he teaches you to act in his own way. His obsession with detail isn't oppressive, but, to the contrary, nourishes the actor. On the set I felt all inhibition scatter, above all in front of the prying eye of the camera." In the near future Friedel would like another film project. "My dream? A Haneke 2! But also a film with Tim Burton or David Lynch. Maybe a more evil part, as an antagonist." He also has a knack for music (a passion which scored him the part in the film), that he has cultivated semi-professionally since childhood. "I hope to find the time to become a true musician and develop a career as a theater actor and cinematographer. I'm eclectic: doing only one thing has always bored me."

A wolf with the voice of George Clooney that, tired of being a journalist and running a normal family life, gives into his primordial instinct to rob what his neighbors offer: poultry and cider, thereby causing an endless feud. Fantastic Mr. Fox is most recent product of the creative monster that is Wes Anderson, and is up for Best Animated Feature Film and Best Soundtrack at the Oscars. It will be in Italian theaters in April with the title Una volpe troppo furba.

The Texan director, screenwriter and producer changes the genre but not the mood of his quirky and bitter comedies. At forty years old, Anderson has created a unique brand of cinema whose main ingredients are eccentricity, imagination, and eternal adolescence. He uses a small circle of "trusted" actors, including the brothers Luke and Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Anjelica Huston and Jason Schwartzman.

He shoots them using static, photographic framing that emphasizes the symbolic and unreal atmosphere in which they find themselves. Fantastic Mr. Fox, filmed in stop motion, was inspired by the 1970 Roald Dahl novel of the same name. In addition to Clooney, the voice overs include Meryl Streep, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe and Wes Anderson himself.

The director of Crazy heart was able to transform a great passion into the key of success. Today the story of singer-songwriter "Bad Blake", has won two Oscars

When, at three years old in 1974, he began to listen to the bluegrass of Bill Monroe and Ralph and Carter Stanley, he couldn't have imagined that, 25 years later, his love of country music would serve as the turning point in his career. Scott Cooper, screenwriter, producer and director, began his acting career after studying at the famous Lee Strasberg Institute of New York.

He debuted on the big screen in 1998 with Dry Martini by Alejandro Chomski, followed by several films and television series. "But, it's when I came across the novel by Thomas Cobb, Crazy Heart, that I thought the character of the book would allow me to tell the story of all the great country singers," he explains. And so it was. Crazy Heart, shot in only twenty-four days with a budget of seven million dollars, was a tough challenge for Cooper.

Now the actor/director holds his breath and, despite receiving daily work proposals, prefers to spend some time with his two daughters, Ava and Stella, three and six years old. In the future he would like to work on several fronts: writing, producing, directing and acting, he just can't resist the allure of creating something from nothing.

This thirty-nine year old Californian has loads of TV and film experience, but "The Hurt Locker" offers him the ultimate opportunity

Jeremy Renner has the face of the man next door. He's not one of those overly handsome leading men, but more reminiscent of the great character actors such as Robert Mitchum, Harry Dean Stanton, and Warren Oates; men that could seem tough and sensitive at the same time. Jeremy Renner should be happy to have that face, because it has guaranteed him solid career in cinema. Without that face he never would have gained the trust of director Katheryn Bigelow or the respect of the writer Mark Boal. He would not have gained the opportunity (and the part) that changed his life, that of Major William James in The Hurt Locker.
