Meryl Streep in ‘Julie & Julia’: A look back at her 16th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 16 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In 1977, the year Meryl Streep made her feature film debut in “Julia,” Nora Ephron was working full-time as a columnist for Esquire, penning memorable pieces on the likes of controversial Boston University President John Silber and the series finale of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”

By the time, six years later, Ephron made her own big screen debut as screenwriter of the Streep-headlined “Silkwood” (1983), Streep had two Oscar victories under her belt. The success of “Silkwood” in 1983 set expectations supremely high for their collaboration on “Heartburn” (1986), based on the acclaimed Ephron semi-autobiographical novel – anticipation that would make that picture’s ultimate

BAFTA Awards: 6 British nominees who beat eventual Oscar winners

BAFTA Awards: 6 British nominees who beat eventual Oscar winners
Since the the BAFTAs moved ahead of the Oscars in 2000, it has become a fairly reliable barometer of who will win in the four acting races at the Academy Awards. However, there have been six occasions when it has gone with home-grown talent over the eventual Oscar winners. And there have been eight other times when British nominees have won without facing the eventual Academy Awards champs.

2018 BAFTA predictions: ‘Three Billboards’ vs. ‘Darkest Hour’ for Best British Film – can American Midwest really beat Churchill?

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” seems on the surface like it would be an unusual BAFTA choice for Best British Film. After all, it’s set in the American Midwest and features a primarily American cast. But BAFTA rules stipulate that “a film must have significant creative involvement by individuals who are British,” and “Three Billboards” was written and directed by an Englishman, Martin McDonagh. Based on the latest combined predictions of more than 1,600 users who have made their picks in our predictions center thus far, “Three Billboards” is the favorite to win with odds of 1/2, but don’t underestimate “Darkest Hour,” which is as British a film as you could possibly ask for.

Among the users predicting the BAFTA winners are six Expert journalists we’ve polled from top media outlets, and four of them agree with the consensus that “Three Billboards” will win: Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Anne

Viola Davis on #MeToo: ‘If You’re Dedicated to Change, Let It Cost You Something’

Viola Davis on #MeToo: ‘If You’re Dedicated to Change, Let It Cost You Something’
Is the #MeToo movement a true tipping point? Or will this moment pass with no real impact on our culture?

That was the main question posed at the Women in the World salon, held Tuesday at NeueHouse in Hollywood.

Reprising a powerful quote from her speech at the Women’s March in Los Angeles last month, Viola Davis said, “Nothing can be great unless it costs you something.” The actress, who was interviewed by Witw host Tina Brown, said change can happen if we are all willing to make sacrifices. “For me, everything has cost me something,” she said. “I think that people sometimes want to take the safe route. The way life works, it’s gotta cost you something. That’s when you know you’ve really made the sacrifices.”

Davis also opened up about her own #MeToo experiences (“I cannot tell you at any time in my life that I was not sexually assaulted in some

Film Review: ‘Basmati Blues’

Film Review: ‘Basmati Blues’
If you’re wondering why Brie Larson, after winning the Oscar for “Room” and then proving her franchise bona fides in last year’s “Kong: Skull Island,” is now starring in “Basmati Blues,” an ultra-cutesy micro-indie cross-cultural comedy that opened last Friday on a tiny sprinkling of screens, the answer is: The movie has been sitting on the shelf for so long — most of it was filmed in 2013, before a monsoon shut it down — that Larson, when it was made, hadn’t even appeared on the radar yet with her splendid performance in “Short Term 12.” Then again, if you’re wondering why a movie as unimportant as “Basmati Blues” has become the subject of a mini controversy, the answer is: Because there is something a tad patronizing about it — but also because the international trailer for the picture that appeared in November provoked a bit of a misunderstanding.

Oscars 2018: Do mean moms like Allison Janney usually beat loving moms like Laurie Metcalf and Mary J. Blige?

Oscars 2018: Do mean moms like Allison Janney usually beat loving moms like Laurie Metcalf and Mary J. Blige?
The “Long-Suffering Wife” has been a reoccurring Oscars trope: women winning for playing loyal, put-upon spouses, usually to tormented leading men (e.g. Jennifer Connelly in “A Beautiful Mind,” Viola Davis in “Fences”). In recent years we’ve also seen the “Long Suffering Mother” rise to prominence, but while some moms are the ones who suffer, others cause the suffering. This year we’ve got a few to choose from in the race for Best Supporting Actress: the loving Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird“) and Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound“) and that mean mama Allison Janney (“I, Tonya“). So who will win?

After winning at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards and SAG Awards Janney has taken the lead in our Oscar predictions with 1/3 odds based on the combined picks of more than 3,400 Gold Derby users. Janney plays Lavona, the abusive mother who ruthlessly pushed her daughter Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) to be a figure skating champion.

2018 Razzies: Jamie Dornan finally accepts his Worst Actor award for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ from Conan O’Brien [Watch]
He’d like to thank the academy … or, maybe not. “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Jamie Dornan won Worst Actor at the Razzie Awards two years ago for his performance as America’s favorite Bdsm businessman Christian Grey in the erotic drama. He wasn’t there to accept the “honor,” but he would have been happy to go. “Dude, if they invited me I’d be there,” Dornan recently told Conan O’Brien (watch above). “I won one, and I didn’t even get invited.”

“I’m intrigued to see what it’s all about,” Dornan explains. Poking fun at the awards that have poked fun at him, he added, “Apparently you can just pay $90 and just become a member online. An establishment that runs itself like that intrigues me quite a lot.” But even though he didn’t have the pleasure of accepting his prestigious Razzie in person, he

Netflix and ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’ Made Exhibition History With Just 4 Words: ‘Only on Netflix Tonight’

  • Indiewire
You’ve probably never heard of “Breakout,” Columbia Pictures’ 1975 prison-break movie starring Charles Bronson. That’s to be expected — it’s a ‘B’ movie at best — but its successful release was one of the most important in film distribution history. Why? Because “Breakout” was released on 1,300 screens simultaneously, with national TV advertising. At that time, TV ads for movies were all but unheard of, and releases tended to be either initially exclusive in downtown theaters, or shown in different territories at different times.

Despite predictions that it was a waste of money, “Breakout” was an immediate hit. That convinced Universal to do the same thing for “Jaws” less than a month later, and that film’s massive success remains the most significant change in exhibition history. By creating the notion of a shared experience for 2 million people, it created the template for how most studio features are released today.

The other cash-rich actor’s deal of 1989

Simon Brew Feb 6, 2018

Jack Nicholson's Batman deal made him over £50m for one film role. But Bruce Willis didn't do badly out of Look Who's Talking, either...

No actor in the 1980s managed to bag as good a deal for a single movie role as Jack Nicholson. In agreeing to sign up to play The Joker in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie Batman, he cut his up front fee from $10m to $6m. In exchange for the $4m price cut, Nicholson took a cut of the film’s earnings, its merchandise sales, and earnings from future sequels. Even though he wasn’t on screen for a second after the first Batman film, he continued to take a cut from the likes of Batman Returns and Batman Forever too.

I’d assume that Nicholson’s earning from the deal was brought to an end before Christopher Nolan rebooted Batman with Batman Begins (and,

2018 BAFTA Awards: Does Sally Hawkins (‘The Shape of Water’) have home-field advantage over Frances McDormand (‘Three Billboards’)?

2018 BAFTA Awards: Does Sally Hawkins (‘The Shape of Water’) have home-field advantage over Frances McDormand (‘Three Billboards’)?
After Sally Hawkins dominated the critics circuit, the tide has turned with the televised awards. The “Shape of Water” star lost the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice and Screen Actors Guild Awards to Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), but she could exact revenge on her home turf at the BAFTAs.

Though they usually go with the frontrunners, every now and then the BAFTAs hand a win to a British native or British–reared star. Just last year, Dev Patel (“Lion”) won Best Supporting Actor over eventual Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight”). Eight years ago, Colin Firth (“A Single Man”) interrupted Jeff Bridges’ Best Actor sweep for “Crazy Heart.” That same year, Carey Mulligan (“An Education”) won Best Actress, albeit eventual Oscar champ Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) wasn’t eligible, but voters opted for British pride over Meryl Streep (“Julie & Julia”).
