2018 BAFTAs: ‘Three Billboards’ could deliver the first pair of Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor winners in 19 years

2018 BAFTAs: ‘Three Billboards’ could deliver the first pair of Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor winners in 19 years
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is predicted to take home five BAFTA Awards on Sunday, including trophies for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell in Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. That combo for one film is rare at BAFTA, and if they pull it off, they’d only be the fourth duo to do so and the first in 19 years.

Since BAFTA added supporting categories for the class of 1968, the only films to nab Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor are “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975), which was released a year later in the U.K., for Louise Fletcher and Brad Dourif; “A Private Function” (1984) for Maggie Smith and Denholm Elliott; and “Elizabeth” (1998) for Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush.

Meryl Streep in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’: A look back at her 14th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’: A look back at her 14th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 14 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 at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

The three years following “Adaptation” (2002) did not produce an Oscar nomination for Meryl Streep – her longest drought since the early 1990s, following “Postcards from the Edge” (1990). That is not to say, of course, that these years were without substantial Streep contributions to the big and small screens and stage.

Sans a brief cameo portraying herself in the Matt DamonGreg Kinnear conjoined twins comedy “Stuck on You,” Streep did not grace the silver screen in 2003. She did, however, hit the television circuit in a big way with her reunion alongside filmmaker Mike Nichols on the HBO production of Tony Kushner‘s “Angels in America.

Hollywood Flashback: 'Life Aquatic' Almost Sank in Berlin in 2005

Hollywood Flashback: 'Life Aquatic' Almost Sank in Berlin in 2005
In 2001, Berlin gave Wes Anderson a rapturous reception for the international premiere of The Royal Tenenbaums. Four years later, the Berlin premiere of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou was a bit more subdued.

Critics were divided over the idiosyncratic indie director’s comic tale of an over-the-hill oceanographer (Bill Murray) who sets off on a Moby Dick-like quest accompanied by a crew that includes his estranged wife and a pregnant journalist (Anjelica Huston and Cate Blanchett, respectively).

The Hollywood Reporter called it “wonderfully weird and wistful,” but the likes of veteran critic Stephanie Zacharek (a member of this year’s...

Get a good look at Thor’s new hammer Stormbreaker from Avengers: Infinity War

Thor: Ragnarok certainly shook things up for the God of Thunder. Not only did he lose Asgard and his right eye, but his trusty hammer Mjolnir was destroyed at the hands of Cate Blanchett’s wicked villainess Hela.

Thor won’t be going into Avengers: Infinity War and the big showdown with Thanos unarmed however, as he will be wielding a new hammer – Stormbreaker – in the superhero blockbuster, and thanks to some merchandise packaging, we’ve got a good look at the mighty weapon; take a look here, courtesy of Cbm

Thor Doesn’t Have His Eye Patch In New Infinity War Art

Thor appears to have both of his eyes in new art for Avengers: Infinity War. Thor adopted a new look at the end of Thor: Ragnarok after losing his right eye to Cate Blanchett’s Hela. Though Thor could miraculously regain his eye through magic, it’s more likely that the art has no bearing on the story at all, and the artist simply chose to use Thor’s traditional appearance.

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,

Hanna TV series casts Mireille Enos, Joel Kinnaman, and Esme Creed-Miles

Variety is reporting that Amazon Studios has cast its three leads for Hanna, a TV adaptation of the Joe Wright-directed 2011 action film which starred Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett.

Penned by David Farr, the writer of the original movie, Hanna is described as “a high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama which follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.”

Esme Creed-Miles (Dark River) is set to portray the titular Hanna, with The Killing duo of Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos set to portray Hanna’s father Erik and CIA agent Marissa respectively.

“I’m thrilled that Hanna has managed to attract a visionary director and actors of the calibre of Mireille and Joel to play our adult leads,” said Farr. “And in Esme Creed-Miles I believe we

Oscars 2018: Best Makeup and Hairstyling loves British icons from Queen Elizabeth to Margaret Thatcher … to Winston Churchill?

Oscars 2018: Best Makeup and Hairstyling loves British icons from Queen Elizabeth to Margaret Thatcher … to Winston Churchill?
Darkest Hour” is the overwhelming Oscar front-runner for Best Makeup and Hairstyling thanks in large part to the prosthetics used to transform lead actor Gary Oldman into British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. This award has gone to a number of films that recreate historical figures over the years, but the motion picture academy has been especially fond of British icons.

Peter Frampton, Paul Pattison and Lois Burwell won for “Braveheart” (1995), about 13th century Scottish warrior William Wallace. But Wallace was actually fighting to free Scotland from English rule, so perhaps we should leave that one out. But just a few years later Jenny Shircore prevailed for “Elizabeth” (1998), which transformed Cate Blanchett into Queen Elizabeth I during the early years of her reign. And one year after that Christine Blundell and Trefor Proud prevailed for Mike Leigh‘s biopic “Topsy-Turvy” (1999), about the British operatic duo of Gilbert and Sullivan.

Hanna TV show on the way from Amazon starring Joel Kinnaman

Joseph Baxter Feb 9, 2018

Amazon’s serial adaptation of the 2011 actioner, Hanna, will reunite The Killing stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos...

Hanna, the stylish 2011 action film which elevated the career of Saoirse Ronan, is set to be adapted as a TV series by Amazon. Interestingly enough, the series will also serve as a reunion platform for two of its announced main players in Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos, who co-starred on the 2011-2014 AMC-later-Netflix murder-mystery series, The Killing.

Amazon’s casting of Joel Kinnaman for Hanna represents a bit of a coup, since the actor’s stock is at its highest point, coming off the recent release of (streaming competitor) Netflix’s sci-fi series, Altered Carbon, on which he stars. However, Kinnaman’s onscreen reunion with his former The Killing police partner, Enos, will likely be an acrimonious one, since they will be depicted as mortal enemies, engaging

Richard Linklater Sets Sights on 1969 Moon Landing for Next Film

Richard Linklater Sets Sights on 1969 Moon Landing for Next Film
With Boyhood in the rearview and a few years until he may return with another Before movie, Richard Linklater is continuing his prolific streak. After last fall’s Last Flag Flying, this May will see the release of his Cate Blanchett-led Where’d You Go, Bernadette, and now he’s already prepping to shoot his next film.

Taking him back to the summer of 1969 in Houston, Linklater’s new, currently untitled film (aka Untitled Space Age Movie) will take place from a boy’s perspective as he witnesses the moon landing, launched from the Nasa base in his hometown. While one can expect a fitting soundtrack for the era, not much else is known about the film, including the cast, but the director has put a call out if you have any materials from the era.

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Spot Fuels Rumors Of Thor’s Weapon Upgrade

When Taika Waititi climbed aboard Thor: Ragnarok, part and parcel of the director’s vision involved stripping the Norse god down to the bare bones. No home. No luscious locks. And definitely no hammer.

You can thank Cate Blanchett’s Hela, Goddess of Death, for shattering Mjölnir into a million pieces, but with Thanos looming large, Thor’s next port of call will be to find a new weapon before Avengers: Infinity War kicks off. And that’s where the Guardians come in.

As reported by Screen Rant, the official Super Bowl stinger for Infinity War features a shot of Thor hitching a ride in the Milano. So far, so familiar. But things really start to get interesting when you consider where they ragtag crew is headed. Nidavellir is a safe bet, as it’s home to the Dwarven smiths – and, by effect, Jarnbjorn.
