’20th Century Women’ Blu-ray Sweepstakes: Enter to Win Mike Mills’ Oscar-Nominated Drama

21 March 2017 5:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

By late December of Oscar season, frontrunners have emerged that demand to be seen while contenders just on the bubble risk falling behind at the box office. Mike Mills’ wonderful coming-of-age drama “20th Century Women” is one such movie.

‘Moonlight’ to Stream on Amazon Prime Video Exclusively Under A24 Renewal

17 March 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Moonlight,” this year’s Oscar winner for best picture, will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video under an extension of the ecommerce giant’s pact with studio A24.

The multiyear deal, an extension of the 2013 pact between the two companies, will continue to make Amazon Prime Video the only premium subscription service for all upcoming A24 films. However, the content agreement covers only the U.S. — so Prime Video members elsewhere won’t have access to the movies as part of their subscription.

Moonlight,” starring Mahershala Ali (“House of Cards”), will be available on Prime Video starting May 21 to U.S. members. »

Beauty Break: Happy 25th Anniversary to Bening & Beatty

I believe this was the first photoshoot they did together to promote Bugsy

Warren Beatty and Annette Bening were married on this day in 1992 (or thereabouts* -- different sources online disagree on which day in March. Google and On This Day say March 12th, IMdb and Wikipedia says March 3rd). In other words just couple weeks or so before the 1991 Oscars where their film was to be honored »

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

Read More: 2018 Oscar Predictions

Audiences got their first looks at Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Julianne Moore and Jennifer Lawrence’s winning Best Actress performances at fall festivals Toronto or Telluride, so we may not have a clear view of this category until September.

Cannes may give us some early clues, when Golden Globe and Cesar-winner Isabelle Huppert is expected to resurface in Michael Haneke’s “Happy End.” Woody Allen’s upcoming “Wonder Wheel” could reveal whether Kate Winslet could enjoy the same kind of awards season run that Cate Blanchett had in the lead-up to her “Blue Jasmine” win.

Last year’s Toronto breakout Florence Pugh (“Lady Macbeth”) and Sundance rising star Danielle MacDonald (“Patti Cake$”) could join former nominee Carey Mulligan (“Mudbound”) in contention.

Check back in June when Nicole Kidman gets a chance to shine in Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled.”

A list of early possibilities is below. »
