But just who will take home a Golden Statue this weekend? Many industry experts believe that Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, nominated for a record-equalling 14 awards, will sweep the board but it has much competition from such wonderful films as Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Fences, Hidden Figures and Lion, amongst others.

Dress to protest: why the Oscars red carpet is set for a revolution | Jess Cartner-Morley

6 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The ceremony’s biggest political statements might come not from the podium, but on the catwalk outside, as the stars hit the campaign trail Hollywood cares about most

Hollywood has had a lot to say for itself recently. Meryl Streep, a 20-time Academy Award nominee, riled the Trump White House with her Golden Globes speech. Tom Ford, who directed Nocturnal Animals, refuses to dress the first lady. George Clooney says of Donald Trump: “I didn’t vote for him, I don’t support him, I don’t think he’s the right choice.” Natalie Portman, meanwhile, took to the podium at last month’s Women’s March in Los Angeles to call for a women’s revolution against the Us president. Graydon Carter’s Vanity Fair, the publication of record for the west coast entertainment industry, has pulled no punches in its editorial attacks on Trump. In the new America, »

Meryl Streep is defending herself after Chanel’s designer Karl Lagerfeld claimed that she dropped out of wearing a Chanel dress to this year’s Oscars in favor of a brand that would pay her.

“In reference to Mr. Lagerfeld’s ‘statement,’ there is no ‘controversy’: Karl Lagerfeld, a prominent designer, defamed me, my stylist, and the illustrious designer whose dress I chose to wear, in an important industry publication,” Streep said in a statement to People. “That publication printed this defamation, unchecked.
