Eugenio Derbez & His 3Pas Studios Sign with Creative Artists Agency (CAA)

Eugenio Derbez is getting creative

The 60-year-old Mexican actor, comedian and filmmaker and his production company 3Pas Studios have signed with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in all areas.

Eugenio DerbezDerbez has been on a hot streak following the announcement of multiple deals: a first-look deal with TelevisaUnivision’s streamer Vix, a development deal with Encantos for kids content, and a renewal of a first-look film deal at Lionsgate, to name a few.

The 3Pas Studios-produced bilingual series Acapulco for Apple TV+ was recently renewed for a second season.

Derbez is an award-winning actor, writer, director, producer, and philanthropist, who, along with former Pantelion Films executive and producer Ben Odell, built 3Pas Studios, a bilingual production company producing English and Spanish language content for global audiences.

3Pas has offices in Los Angeles, Miami, and Mexico City, where they also have its production services arm, Visceral. Composed of 22 employees, the studio services development and production across English and Spanish language movies, scripted and unscripted content, as well as entertainment for kids and families.

Next, 3Pas will move into podcasting, as well as new, non-media-related businesses.

In 2013, Derbez wrote, produced, starred in, and directed Instructions Not Included, which became the highest-grossing Spanish-language film ever, grossing more than $100 million on a $5 million budget.

Most recently, he starred in the Oscar-winning film Coda, which won Best Picture at the 94th Academy Awards, in addition to Best Ensemble award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and three British Academy Film Awards, including Best Screenplay.

In addition to starring in and producing his own comedy shows throughout the past 25 years, Derbez has also starred in the 3Pas Studios’ hit movies How To Be A Latin Lover and Overboard as well as Miracles From Heaven, and Dora And The Lost City of Gold.

Up next, he will appear in The Valet, which 3Pas Studios developed and produced along with Lionsgate to premiere via Hulu on May 20th.

3Pas Studios’ other recent projects include Amazon’s De Viaje Con Los Derbez, and the Spanish-language version of LOL: Last One Laughing.

Cuarón Named Best Director at the 2014 BAFTA Awards; “Gravity” Takes Home Six Awards

Another awards ceremony, another big prize for Alfonso Cuarón

The 52-year-old Mexican filmmaker, who already has a Golden Globe, DGA Award and Critics’ Choice Movie Award, has picked up his latest Best Director trophy this awards season at the 2014 BAFTA Awards.

Alfonso Cuarón

Cuarón, the heavy favorite to win Best Director at this year’s Oscars, won the award for helming his critically acclaimed 3D space disaster thriller Gravity.

But that wasn’t Cuarón’s only trophy of the night…

The filmmaker, one of Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainers of the Year in 2013, also took home the prize for Best British Film as one of Gravity’s producers.

Meanwhile, Cuarón’s cinematographer-of-choice Emmanuel Lubezki took home the BAFTA Award for Best Cinematography for the Mexican Oscar nominee’s work on Gravity, his sixth career BAFTA Award.

In all, Gravity won an impressive six awards — just one award shy of The Artist in 2012 and The King’s Speech.

The British Academy Film Awards are presented in an annual award show hosted by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).

Jonás Cuarón Earns His First BAFTA Awards Nomination

Like father, like son…

Jonás Cuarón, the son of Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón, has earned his first BAFTA Awards nomination.

Jonas Cuaron

The Mexican filmmaker has been nominated with his father in the original screenplay category, for writing their blockbuster hit Gravity.

It’s one of the whopping 11 nominations the 3D sci-fi film earned from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, including Best Film and Best British Film.

Cuarón’s father also earned a Best Editing and Best Director nod, the latest nomination in that category for one of Entertainment Weekly’s 2013 Entertainers of the Year. He’s up against 12 Years A Slave’s Steve McQueen, American Hustle’s David O. Russell, Captain PhillipsPaul Greengrass and The Wolf Of Wall Street’s Martin Scorsese in the director field.

Meantime, Cuarón’s longtime collaborator, Mexican cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, earned a Best Cinematography nod for his work on Gravity.

Lastly, Rush star Daniel Brühl continues to earn awards recognition for portraying real-life racing legend Niki Lauda in Ron Howard‘s Formula One racing drama. Following his SAG Award and Golden Globe nods, the 35-year-old half-Spanish actor will take on Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Matt Damon (Behind the Candelabra), Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave) and Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) in the race for the best supporting actor trophy.

The British Academy Film Awards will take place on February 16 at the Royal Opera House in London, with the ceremony broadcast exclusively on BBC One in the U.K. and in all major territories around the world.

Bejo “Overjoyed” Over Oscar Nod…

Since the start of the awards season, Bérénice Bejo has received praise and recognition for her scene-stealing presence in The Artist.

The 35-year-old Argentine star has been lauded by a growing number of organizations, including acting nods from the Hollywood Foreign Press, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts and the Broadcast Film Critics Association.

Berenice Bejo The Artist

But Bejo is only the second Argentine actor or actress to receive an Academy Award nomination—following in the footsteps of Norma Aleandro, who received an Oscar nod nearly 25 years ago for her supporting role in Gaby: A True Story.

“I’m overjoyed and filled with happiness. I can’t believe that a year ago I was learning how to tap dance and shooting in Hollywood studios and today I am nominated for an Academy Award,” said Bejo after receiving a Best Supporting Actress nomination for playing Peppy Miller in the . “It was a thrill to work on a project as ambitious as The Artist and I am happy to share this moment with our visionary director, Michel Hazanavicius.”

Bejo—who was the best-dressed Latina at this year’s Golden Globes—will face-off against Jessica Chastain (The Help), Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) and
 Octavia Spencer (The Help). 

The 84th Academy Awards will be televised on ABC on Sunday, Feb. 26.

Bejo Receives BAFTA Award Nomination

Bérénice Bejo’s star turn in Michel Hazanavicius’ critically acclaimed silent film The Artist continues to receive rave reviews for her performance…

The 35-year-old Argentine star of the French black-and-white film—an homage to the “pre-talkie” era set in 1920s and 1930s Hollywood—received a BAFTA award nomination for best actress for playing the effervescently charming and irresistibly beautiful Peppy Miller in The Artist.

Berenice Bejo The Artist

Bejo—who illuminated the red carpet at Sunday’s Golden Globes in an Emilio Pucci sapphire gown—is up against Michelle Williams for her turn in My Week With Marilyn, Viola Davis for The Help, Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady and Tilda Swinton for We Need To Talk About Kevin.

In all, The Artist leads the field with nominations in 12 categories for this year’s British Academy Film Awards, presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, including best film.

Meanwhile, 55-year-old Spanish composer Alberto Iglesias has received a BAFTA award nomination for original music for his work on the spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

 

Iglesias, who earned a London Film Critics’ Circle nod for his work on Pedro Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In, will face off against The Artist’s Ludovic Bource, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, Hugo’s Howard Shore and War Horse’s John Williams.

The British Academy Film Awards take place on Sunday February 12 at the Royal Opera House in London.
