Hollywood prepares for the Academy Awards

  • Jimmy Kimmel leaned into the wave of sexual harassment allegations while hosting the Oscars Sunday night

McDormand previously won the Oscar for her performance in "Fargo".

Columnist Sidney Skolsky was there when Margaret noted the similarity, and wrote the heading: "Employees have affectionately dubbed their famous statuette Oscar". She received the SAG Award and the Golden Globe for best supporting actress.

After Meryl, Jack Nicholson and Katharine Hepburn are tied, with 12 nominations each.

So it's all about which celeb reacts the best to it.

A similar situation has developed in this category as well, in which a beloved character actor (with even a host of Emmys to her name) has pummeled her way through all the precursor awards and won everything in her category.

Peter had succumbed to a heart attack in the January, and when he won the Best Actor title, for Network, his wife collected it. Thankfully, both the awards show and the red carpet will be broadcast online so those who want to watch on their phones, computers or devices won't miss out.

We're so close to finding out who wins best picture!

As well as having the most wins, Walt can claim to have more nominations than anyone else.

It is in good shape however to take some of the technical Oscars for sound and film editing, as well as sound mixing.

The ceremony could also yield a number of history-making records and milestones. But we think 25 Oscars would have been enough to keep him smiling.

One of the most acclaimed performers of his generation, the British-Irish method actor, 60, announced he would "no longer be acting" after reuniting with There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson for the story about fashion in 1950s London.

Although "Get Out" is my favorite of the Oscar-nominated films, I can not ignore just how attractive of a movie "The Shape of Water" is.

Here's a look at the nominated films ahead of Sunday's awards. If anything, this category can be called a toss-up considering there are only two films that really stand a chance of winning and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science can't go wrong with either choice. It's an opportunity to get readers involved, and those who participate by guessing which nominees will win in top categories seem to have fun with it (and that makes me happy).

"We are not an awards show protest group", director Ava DuVernay said on Thursday, according to a Los Angeles Times report. In terms of numerous wins, yes.

From a quirky fairy tale romance to a dark comedy about a murder investigation, via a couple of coming-of-age tales and a horror satire, the contenders for the best picture Oscar offer audiences an array of genres and themes.

But the 2017 backstage envelope mix-up that saw the top prize in the movie industry briefly being awarded to La La Land rather than actual victor Moonlight may pale in relation to the task facing Kimmel when he returns as Oscar MC for a second year. Heading into the night, del Toro's The Shape of Water leads the nominations with 13, followed by Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk with eight.

Now you just know someone is going to be played off early during their acceptance speech.

Weather has been dry and on chilly side for the last couple of weeks in Southern California, but cool weather and rain at the same time is something Angelinos are not use to dealing with, and even more if you have to walk down the Oscar red carpet suited-up or with a sleeveless gown and high heels. "I feel that Woody Harrelson provided a more rounded, realistic character in that film, but Rockwell had a far more flamboyant role, which inevitably attracts more attention and, seemingly, more admiration", he said.
