Viewers may have tuned in to Sunday’s premiere of Big Little Lies on HBO for the all-star cast, which includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley, but the series’ surprise breakout isn’t a character, it’s the stunning settings.

Five (Other) Times Nicole Kidman Should Have Been Oscar Nominated

24 February 2017 11:22 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With Nicole Kidman returning to the Oscars this weekend as a nominee, here's Abstew on a handful of roles for which Oscar did not recognize her...

When I was a child there was an Oscar almanac that I would consult for my Oscar obsession (this was long before the days of the internet). The list of actors with multiple nominations didn't begin unless the actor had 5 nominations or more. Ever since then I've had it in my head that 5 is the magical number when it comes to Oscar; a sign of a better actor, showing that their body of work over the years is worth recognition, rather than the "one and done" that so many actors face. Since Nicole Kidman has always been one of my favorites, I've thought it odd that she's been nominated a relatively low number of times compared to the quality she produces. Certainly she ranks with Kate and Cate, »

Final Oscars Predictions 2017: Here's Who Should Win and Who Will Win the Biggest Awards!

23 February 2017 11:30 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We've made predictions about who would get nominated for an Oscar and who would win the awards leading up to the Oscars. We've seen the campaigning and the controversy and some damn fine movies in between, too. Now that Academy voting has officially ended, we present our final predictions for who will win -- as well as who we think really should win.

Watch: Oscars 2017 Snubs & Surprises: 'La La Land,' Michael Shannon, and None for 'Deadpool'! Bye!

Best Picture

Summit Entertainment

Who Should Win: La La Land

Who Will Win: La La Land

Despite plenty of fine nominees (Arrival! Hidden Figures! Manchester by the Sea!), the race for Best Picture was always between La La Land and Moonlight. Neither is perfect, but you could reasonably call either the year's Best Picture. Still, if history is any indication, La La Land's record amount of nominations will guarantee it takes home the night's top honor.

Oscar Nominated Actresses Make Bold and Varied Fashion Choices

23 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From a rape victim in “Elle” to a crack-addicted mother in “Moonlight,” this year’s nominated female roles are confronting, arresting, and varied. The same can be said for the actresses who play them, who choose to lead, rather than follow, with their choices in both film and fashion.

Viola Davis made a pointed statement on the Golden Globes red carpet. “The bright yellow was a symbol of hope and optimism,” says stylist Elizabeth Stewart of Davis’ Michael Kors gown. “It was very intentional. It feels like we’re living in dark times, and we’ve been choosing colors and dresses that symbolize hope.”

Nicole Kidman, too, is not one to shy from a bold choice. Twenty years after her chartreuse Dior catapulted her to the top of the best-dressed list, the “Lion” nominee had no hesitation about the divisive Gucci she wore to the SAG Awards. “I fell in love with the dress, »

My Complete and Fearless 2017 Oscar Predictions

22 February 2017 10:15 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Now that the ballots are en route to the 89th Academy Awards, it is time for us to predict who will be the big winners! Damien Chazelle.s .La La Land. dominated the nominations with 14 nods but will it shine on Oscar night at the city of stars? I.m predicting that the romance musical will take home 11 awards including Best Picture! The musical will only lose in the actor (sorry Ryan Gosling), original screenplay, and to its own .Audition. in the original song categories.

And you know why .La La Land. will win big? Because when the country is in turmoil, popular culture swings to the opposite way. And the film, with its sweet rose-colored palette and fancy production numbers made us all happy. And Hollywood wants us all happy.

We.ll find out all the happy Oscar winners on Sunday at 5 p.m. Join me on my Facebook page, »

La La Land may be the musical creating the most buzz at this year’s Academy Awards, but outside the Dolby Theatre, the weather is predicted to make it look more like Singin’ in the Rain.

In response to the National Weather Service‘s forecast of storms hitting the Los Angeles area on Oscar Sunday, crews have built a rain structure to keep the night’s movie stars and guests dry on the red carpet.

In addition to the giant tent-like formation, hundreds of feet of plastic have also been used to protect the walkway where celebrities will be photographed »

Meet the Sound Mixer Nominated for an Oscar 21 Times with No Wins — Will This Be His Year?

22 February 2017 2:04 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

And the Oscar for most nominations goes to…

Sound mixer Kevin O’Connell, who has worked on films such as Top Gun and Transformers, has a rather bittersweet distinction in Hollywood — he holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations without a single win.

After 21 nominations spanning 33 years — his first coming in 1984 for the classic tearjerker Terms of Endearment — O’Connell is hoping to hear his name called for Mel Gibson‘s directorial comeback Hacksaw Ridge at this year’s Oscars. However, he knows the competition is tough.

“I think we have a better shot in years past,” he recently told NBC News. »

Lion, directed by Garth Davis with a screenplay by BAFTA winner Luke Davies, based on Saroo Brierley's memoir A Long Way Home, has been nominated for six Academy Awards - Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography by Greig Fraser, Original Score by Volker Bertelmann and Dustin O'Halloran, and Best Supporting nods to BAFTA winner Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

Sunny Pawar as Saroo Brierley: "It goes quite well in chronological order, the way that it started."
