If this year's Oscars are all about revolution, 2014 could see royalty carry off the crown. Stoker director Park Chan-wook makes more plans for Hollywood. And a last-minute tip for Oscars night…

Princesses on parade

If revolution and overthrow are a theme of tonight's Oscars (Les Mis, Django Unchained, Lincoln, Argo), it's an irony that next year looks set to be a right royal display. The best actress race is already shaping up as a showdown of princesses: Grace of Monaco and Diana, Princess of Wales. Nicole Kidman has just finished work filming Grace of Monaco, directed by Olivier Dahan, the Frenchman behind the Edith Piaf biopic La vie en rose, for which Marion Cotillard won an Oscar. I'm told by her co-star Tim Roth (yes, he plays an unlikely Prince Rainier) that Kidman has "nailed it".

When I spoke to Nicole – namedrop of the year award right there, I thank »
