2012 BAFTA Nominations Announced

Edited by

Awards season is in full swing as we inch ever closer to the grand daddy of them all, the 2012 Academy Awards. The next step on the road to Oscar is its British equivalent, the BAFTAs. The Artist is quickly emerging as a front-runner favorite this year, scoring nominations in all the major categories including  Best Film, Leading Actor, Leading Actress, Best Director and Original Screenplay. Meanwhile, Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams, fresh off their Golden Globe wins, will go head-to-head against The Artist‘s Bérénice Bejo, Tilda Swinton for We Need to Talk About Kevin and Viola Davis for The Help in what is easily the most competitive and interesting category. And chances are the same names will be read out come Oscar night. But until then, full list of the 2012 BAFTA nominees after the jump!

George Harrison: Within You, Without You 10 Years Later

Edited by

10 years ago today, we lost someone very special, and our guitars have been gently weeping ever since. George Harrison, the Quiet Beatle, has left a loud impression on us, not only for being one of the greatest guitar players to ever live, but for changing the way we listen to music. It was his initiative that brought The Beatles to India and the Indian meditation and sitar to Western ears. This is, of course, after he and John, Paul and Ringo shook the world loose with Beatlemaniacal Rock ‘n’ Roll. His individuality always grew and he wore his easygoing swagger and rockstar nobility beautifully. This year, Martin Scorcese released a documentary on George that illuminated him to us even more deeply. He really was Something, wasn’t he? In honor of George, turn on your favorite George Harrison song, scroll through these photos, and send up peace and love.

Mullet of Kintyre! Paul McCartney, Rockstars and Muppets Captured at their Funniest

Edited by

Rockstars can hardly sartorially be wrong, they tend to just be more exaggerated versions of themselves. Former Navy combat photographer, James Fortune, however, had a knack for catching the world’s biggest rock stars at their funniest. Now these original numbered prints are available for purchase on Rock Paper Photo. See George Harrison and a little green friend, Robert Plant and a little white friend, and more…

Beatles Biopic to Star Johnny Depp?

Edited by

Wait.. hold up, Beatles biopic?? Yes, please! It is frightfully true that there have been few cinematic tales of The Beatles, and even fewer with any commercial acclaim. Across the Universe was visually stunning, and box office friendly, but it did not tell the story of the Fab Four. Nowhere Boy, the young John Lennon story, got buzz in the Beatle world back in 2009, but no real ticket traction. However, the currently in-the-works film, The Longest Cocktail Party would cover the recording of Let It Be and the creation of Apple Records. With Johnny Depp in the works, you could call it a Beatles bi-epic.

20 Fab Fashion Moments in Beatles History

Edited by

The Beatles are number 1 on countless lists counted in the past 50 years, not least FashionIndie’s Best Dressed Man Bands of All Time. The band that changed the world had a look that evolved with their music; always the classiest. Their look was no accident, and their intensely interesting photos had purpose behind them. Some for which were just smiling for national press, but others like with their friend and photographer Robert Freeman (who shot the first 5 album covers), they delved into deeper emotional imagery. On the heels of Paul McCartney’s 8-city tour (3 hours each night, not 1 sip of water #werq), and The Fest for Beatles Fans this past weekend and Beatles Week coming up in Liverpool, we’ve got the Fab Four on the mind. With thousands more photos in books, see John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in looks that shaped the world.

4 Fab Beatle Boots

Edited by

Do you want to know a secret? Beatle boots are actually called winklepickers. And this oddly named ankle-high pointy-toed boot of the early 60′s Liverpool is seeing a resurgence from designers like Alexander Wang, Guiseppe Zanotti and more of our favorites. Their mod minimal quality reached rocker status when The Beatles adopted them as their official shoe of choice. I’ve got a feeling we’ll be seeing these on our fab feet.
