Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?

Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?
One of the highlights of the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony was the surprise addition of 20 Oscar winners presenting to that year’s acting nominees. It started with five Best Supporting Actress champs (Whoopi Goldberg, Goldie Hawn, Anjelica Huston, Eva Marie Saint, Tilda Swinton) who gave out the award to Penelope Cruz, welcoming her to their club. While all of those presenting that evening had indeed won the category before, each one often had no connection at all to the person they were introducing.

The following year new producers followed a similar format of five people presenting to a new crop of five for the lead categories only. While all of them had working relationships with the nominees (like Michelle Pfeiffer for Jeff Bridges and Stanley Tucci for Meryl Streep), most of them were not Oscar winners.

But the Oscar-winner confessed that while she certainly fancied Martin, she didn’t recognize him at first.

Oscars 2018: Best Picture & Best Actress have gone hand-in-hand only 7 times in 75 years – will they match again?

Oscars 2018: Best Picture & Best Actress have gone hand-in-hand only 7 times in 75 years – will they match again?
This year’s Oscars are unique in how much more female-driven the Best Picture nominees are. Five out of the nine contenders in the top category have female leads, and four of the Best Actress nominees are in films that are also up for the top award: Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water“), Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird”) and Meryl Streep (“The Post”). If one of those films wins both Best Picture and Best Actress, it would be only the 8th to pair those up in the last 75 years.

In the last three-quarters of a century the seven Best Picture/Best Actress match-ups were as follows:

1975 — “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and lead actress Louise Fletcher

1977 — “Annie Hall” and lead actress Diane Keaton

1983 — “Terms of Endearment” and lead actress Shirley MacLaine

1989 — “Driving Miss Daisy” and lead actress Jessica Tandy

1991 — “The Silence of the Lambs

Meryl Streep in ‘One True Thing’: A look back at her 11th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘One True Thing’: A look back at her 11th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 11 of the 21-part Gold Derby series 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.

The latter half of the 1990s found Meryl Streep struggling to find a proper follow-up to her sublime, Oscar-nominated turn in “The Bridges of Madison County” (1995).

First, there was “Before and After” (1996), a sleepy collaboration with filmmaker Barbet Schroeder and leading man Liam Neeson. The picture, among Streep’s worst box office performers to date, was out of theaters within a month.

A bit more successful was “Marvin’s Room” (1996), a family drama that at last paired Streep with Diane Keaton, plus Hume Cronyn, Gwen Verdon and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film garnered modest reviews and box office receipts upon opening that December and it was ultimately Keaton,

‘Riverdale’ Boss on Archie Being Drawn to the Lodges and the Coopers’ Murder Cover-Up

‘Riverdale’ Boss on Archie Being Drawn to the Lodges and the Coopers’ Murder Cover-Up
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Chapter Twenty-Six: The Tell-Tale Heart,” the 13th episode of the second season of “Riverdale.”

Archie (Kj Apa) learned some dark truths in the latest episode of “Riverdale” — but the secret of Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Alice’s (Madchen Amick) murderous cover-up looks to be safe. For now.

“When I started ‘Riverdale,’ I didn’t know it was going to turn into a show about dead bodies and cover-ups and criminal investigations and mobsters and all that. I really thought it was going to be ‘Archie’s trying to get the band together!'” creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says.

Although the show has told typical high school drama tales, including pep rallies and dances — and will again with an upcoming episode designed around a theater musical production — the central mysteries of the show revolve on much more adult fare, including a murder mystery of a teenage boy in

Meryl Streep in ‘Ironweed’: A look back at her seventh Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘Ironweed’: A look back at her seventh Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 7 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, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

On paper, “Heartburn” (1986) had the sound of a surefire smash. The picture reunited the talented trio from “Silkwood” (1983) – leading lady Meryl Streep, director Mike Nichols and screenwriter Nora Ephron. Production on the film hit a snag early on, as Nichols, seeing no magic between he and Streep, fired leading man Mandy Patinkin after mere days of shooting. Things would presumably still be A-ok, however, if not better, considering Patinkin’s replacement was none other than Jack Nicholson, hot as ever with his Academy Awards victory for “Terms of Endearment” (1983) and success the year prior with “Prizzi’s Honor” (1985).

That summer, “Heartburn” hit theaters to reviews

Meryl Streep in ‘Sophie’s Choice’: A look back at her second Oscar win and the competition
This article marks Part 4 of the 21-part Gold Derby series Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

After “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” in 1981, Meryl Streep lined up two exciting projects for the following year, both lead turns and both given prime late-year release dates for Academy Awards consideration.

First on tap was Streep’s much-anticipated reunion with “Kramer vs. Kramer” (1979) director Robert Benton. “Still of the Night” would mark her first big screen thriller to date, pairing Streep with two-time Oscar nominee Roy Scheider. Exciting, right? Well, the Benton picture came and went that November in the blink of an eye, failing to even crack the box office top 10. Not only were reviews for the film itself lukewarm but critics argued both

Hayley Atwell Vows to Never Work with Woody Allen Again, Calls His Direction ‘Bizarre’
Another one of Woody Allen‘s former stars has vowed to never again work with the director.

Haley Atwell — who starred opposite Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor in Allen’s 2007 drama Cassandra’s Dream — broke her silence about working with the Oscar winning filmmaker, telling The Guardian her first movie with him would also be her last.

Allen, 82, has come under criticism recently as the Time’s Up movement has gained momentum. He has been repeatedly accused in the past of child molestation by his daughter Dylan Farrow. The allegation, which he denies, first surfaced in 1992 when Dylan was 7 during

Meryl Streep in ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’: A look back at her third Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 3 of the 21-part Gold Derby series Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

After a remarkable year in film in 1979, including her Academy Awards win for “Kramer vs. Kramer,” Meryl Streep took 1980 off from the big screen, instead focusing her energies on a stage musical of “Alice in Wonderland” that premiered at New York’s Public Theater in December 1980. While the production garnered middling notices, Streep received raves.

The following year, Streep not only returned to the screen but took on her first leading role in a screen adaptation of John Fowles‘ acclaimed 1969 novel “The French Lieutenant’s Woman.” Playwright Harold Pinter adapted the book for the screen and British filmmaker Karel Reisz, who worked wonders with Vanessa Redgrave
