Emma Thompson Won't Be in the Love Actually Sequel For 1 Perfectly Understandable Reason

1 hour ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The world collectively squealed in delight when we found out that Andrew Lincoln, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, and more of the cast of Love Actually would be coming together for a short follow-up to their hit film. The "sequel" is being made to support Red Nose Day, put on by the British charity Comic Relief. Despite the good cause, there is one original cast member who won't be appearing in the short film: Emma Thompson. She opened up to the Press Association about a conversation she had with writer/director Richard Curtis, who agreed that it was too soon after Alan Rickman's death for her to appear: "Richard wrote to me and said, 'Darling, we can't write anything for you because of Alan,' and I said, 'No, of course, it would be sad, too sad' . . .

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

23 hours ago | 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.

Speculation has long raged over the fate of the characters in Love Actually, Richard Curtis’s 2003 Christmas classic.
