Sundance 2018 Oscar Wrap: The Market Is Split Between Young and Old

Sundance 2018 Oscar Wrap: The Market Is Split Between Young and Old
Ever since “In the Bedroom” in 2001, Sundance has just about always delivered a few Oscar contenders a year, especially on the documentary side. (This year’s Sundance 2017 Oscar contenders include “Get Out,” “Call Me By Your Name,” “The Big Sick,” and non-fiction nominees “Last Men in Aleppo,” “Icarus” and Strong Island.”) But just as the 2018 acquisitions market is softer than previous years, there’s also a decided rift between traditional adult arthouse fare — which distributors consider a safer bet for the expensive theatrical run that builds an Oscar contender — and movies aimed at a more diverse, younger audience. The result made the awards prospects in this year’s lineup much harder to assess.

2018 Gold Derby Film Award nominations: Voting ends this weekend if you want to avenge some of Oscar’s biggest snubs

2018 Gold Derby Film Award nominations: Voting ends this weekend if you want to avenge some of Oscar’s biggest snubs
Nominations voting closes for the 2018 Gold Derby Film Awards on Sunday night, January 28, at 11:59pm Eastern Time, so time’s running out if you think you know better than the motion picture academy that just announced their Oscar nominations on January 23. You could avenge some of the academy’s most egregious snubs and right some unforgivable wrongs.

Gold Derby’s winners often match the Oscar favorites, but our voters have gone their own way for Best Picture for the last three years in a row, honoring “Boyhood” over “Birdman” (2014), “Mad Max: Fury Road” over “Spotlight” (2015), and “La La Land” over “Moonlight” (2016) — though that last time most of us thought “La La Land” would end up being the Oscars’ pick too.

Last year Gold Derby picked the same directing, acting and writing winners as the academy, but some of our nominees were markedly different. Our users stood up for performances
