‘Coco’ looking to be just the third film to win Best Animated Feature and Original Song Oscars

‘Coco’ looking to be just the third film to win Best Animated Feature and Original Song Oscars
The jury’s still out on whether being a Best Picture nominee gives you an advantage in Best Original Song, but surely being a Best Animated Feature nominee is a huge plus, right? Technically yes, but it’s definitely not a sure thing to win both. “Coco” sits atop our latest predictions in both Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “Remember Me,” and if the Disney/Pixar film indeed goes two-for-two, it would only be the third time that the two categories went to the same film.

That might sound startling because so many catchy movie anthems have hailed from animated films, specifically Disney films. But the Best Animated Feature category was only added in 2001, right after Disney ruled Best Original Song in the ‘90s — five of the decade’s song winners were from animated Disney films; a sixth, “When You Believe,” was from DreamWorks’ “The Prince of Egypt

‘Three Billboards’ would be first to win Best Picture, two acting and writing Oscars without a directing nomination

‘Three Billboards’ would be first to win Best Picture, two acting and writing Oscars without a directing nomination
With Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor signed, sealed and almost delivered to Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, and Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture very real possibilities, “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” is positioned to do something at the Oscars that hasn’t been done before: win two acting awards, a screenplay award and Best Picture without a directing nomination.

That kind of above-the-line dominance usually comes with a corresponding nomination for Best Director, which historically has been linked with Best Picture. “Elmer Gantry” (1960) nearly pulled this off with wins for Best Actor Burt Lancaster, Best Supporting Actress Shirley Jones and Best Adapted Screenplay for writer-director Richard Brooks. But like “Three Billboards” writer-director Martin McDonagh, Brooks received Golden Globe and Directors Guild Awards nominations before getting snubbed by Oscar. Nominated for five Oscars, “Elmer Gantry” lost Best Picture to “The Apartment” and Best Original Score to “Exodus.”

Who is your favorite multiple Best Actress Oscar winner? [Poll]

Who is your favorite multiple Best Actress Oscar winner? [Poll]
Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) is a few weeks away from becoming one of 14 women who’ve won more than one Best Actress Oscar. McDormand, who took home the prize for “Fargo” (1996), would join 12 other women as two-time winners, two shy of Katharine Hepburn’s all-time record of four. Before McDormand joins this elite club, which of the first lucky 13 champs is your favorite?

Luise Rainer was the first actress to win two and the first performer to win back-to-back Oscars, triumphing for “The Great Ziegfeld” (1936) and “The Good Earth” (1937). Bette Davis (1935’s “Dangerous” and 1938’s “Jezebel”) joined her the following year. Eleven years later, Davis’ pal Olivia de Havilland won her second Oscar for 1949’s “The Heiress,” three years after her “To Each His Own” victory.

Two years after that, Vivien Leigh, who first took home the award for “Gone with the Wind” (1939), won for “A Streetcar Named Desire

Meryl Streep in ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’: A look back at her first Oscar win and the competition

Meryl Streep in ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’: A look back at her first Oscar win and the competition
This article marks Part 2 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.

In 1978, Meryl Streep, already renowned for her work on the New York stage, grabbed the attention of moviegoers across the country with her Oscar-nominated turn in the Best Picture champ “The Deer Hunter.” That year, however, would seem minor in comparison to what was on the horizon in 1979.

Streep was about to work with three of the decade’s hottest directors – Woody Allen, at his most in-demand after “Annie Hall” (1977) and “Interiors” (1978); Robert Benton, whose “The Late Show” (1977) was a big hit; and Jerry Schatzberg, who won critical acclaim with “The Panic in Needle Park” (1971) and “Scarecrow” (1973).

The resulting trio of Allen’s “Manhattan,” Benton’s “Kramer vs.

Meryl Streep in ‘The Deer Hunter’: A look back at her first Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 1 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.

Prior to 1978, Meryl Streep was best-known for her acclaimed New York stage work. She made five Broadway appearances between 1975 and 1977, including a turn in “A Memory of Two Mondays/27 Wagons Full of Cotton” (1976) that brought Streep her first – and to date, only – Tony Award nomination. Her sole big screen appearance was a small, albeit memorable, turn opposite Jane Fonda in “Julia” (1977).

Streep’s name recognition increased significantly in 1978. First, there was her much-heralded performance in the epic NBC miniseries “Holocaust” that resulted in an Emmy Award. It was her second-ever appearance in a feature film, however – and in a Best Picture Academy Awards winner, no

Olivia Cole Dead at 75

Actress Olivia Cole, best known for her performances in Roots and The Women of Brewster Place, passed away on January 19. She was 75.

Cole died in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, her agent, Susie Schwarz at Sbb Partners, told Variety. Her cause of death is currently unknown.

“She was a very eccentric woman and a wonderful woman,” Schwarz said of Cole, who didn’t own a cell phone and shied away from technology.

Cole was born in Memphis, and trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.

She returned to the U.S. in 1964 and appeared in "Romeo and Juliet" at the American Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford, Connecticut.

In 1966, Cole made her Broadway debut in a revival of "The School for Scandal" — just one of the many stage appearances during her career — and then landed a gig as Deborah Mehren on CBS soap opera The Guiding Light.

2018 Oscars: Frances McDormand (‘Three Billboards’) would set third longest gap between Best Actress wins

2018 Oscars: Frances McDormand (‘Three Billboards’) would set third longest gap between Best Actress wins
After victories at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice and Screen Actors Guild Awards, Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) is the odds-on favorite to join a select group of women: performers who’ve won at least two Best Actress Oscars. McDormand would be the 14th to do so and perhaps most impressively, her double would be the third longest timespan between first and second wins.

McDormand won her first Oscar for “Fargo” a whoppin’ 21 years ago — that’s a whole person who can drink! She’d be behind only Meryl Streep (“Sophie’s Choice,” “The Iron Lady”), who waited 29 years, and Katharine Hepburn (“Morning Glory,” “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”), who holds the record at 34 years.

Most two-time Best Actress winners garner their second statuette within a decade of their first, usually within the first five years in that “honeymoon period” when, to paraphrase one double champ, they like you,

'Hal': Film Review | Sundance 2018

'Hal': Film Review | Sundance 2018
One of the comparatively unsung luminaries of 1970s American cinema receives a very fine tribute in Hal, an in-depth look at director Hal Ashby. Never a household name like Spielberg, Scorsese, Coppola or Lucas and without a genuine blockbuster to his credit, the former film editor nonetheless directed seven of the finest and most emblematic films of the New Hollywood Cinema era: The Landlord, Harold and Maude, The Last Detail, Shampoo, Bound for Glory, Coming Home and Being There. Then it was all over. Digging deep into the archives for rare and revealing material to accompany interviews with many of...

Review Round-Up: Before I Wake and Rock Paper Dead

  • DailyDead
For this latest review round-up, I take a look at two very different genre films I had the pleasure of catching up with over the last few weeks: Before I Wake from Mike Flanagan and Tom Holland’s Rock Paper Dead.

Before I Wake: Over the years, it has been interesting to watch Flanagan’s career, as he’s consistently challenged himself in various ways, giving us an array of stories that feel wholly unique and yet are so very distinctly a Mike Flanagan film. For anyone who has been following the journey of Before I Wake’s release, this is a project that has long been waiting for a platform in the Us, and thankfully Netflix has finally given it a proper home. A stunning mix of heartbreak and horror, Before I Wake is an emotionally-charged genre hybrid that features compelling performances from its trio of leads, and an

Bruce Dern, Owen Teague Join Josh Hartnett in Thriller ‘Inherit the Viper’
Barry Films has hired Bruce Dern and Owen Teague to join Josh Hartnett and Margarita Levieva in the independent crime thriller “Inherit the Viper,” which began production this week.

Valorie Curry, Chandler Riggs, and Dash Mihok have also joined the cast. Anthony Jerjen is directing from Andrew Crabtree’s original script. Michel Merkt (“Elle,” “Toni Erdmann”) and Benito Mueller are the producers with Wolfgang Mueller exec producing for Barry Films.

The film is set amidst the prescription drug epidemic ravaging West Virginia and follows three siblings as they try to escape the spiral of violence that has held them captive since their father’s death. In these regions left behind by the economy, selling drugs has become their way of survival.

Teague is portraying a sibling of Hartnett and Levieva’s characters, whose naive impatience to participate in their opioids business brings the family into deadly waters.

The Cinematic Kinship of Richard Linklater and Hal Ashby

The latest stage of Richard Linklater’s freewheeling career takes him back to the 1970s with Last Flag Flying, a 44-years-belated sequel to Hal Ashby’s masterpiece The Last Detail. It’s difficult to call much of anything from Linklater a surprise at this point: he seems as comfortable at the helm of a studio comedy powered by Jack Black’s manic energy as he does a decade-plus-spanning epic about the journey from childhood to adolescence. Last Flag Flying may not stand as one of Linklater’s defining works, but it does signal a kinship with the New Hollywood director, whose run from 1970-1979 was as inspired as any other from that era — before he got burned (and burned-out) and died too young at the age of 59. Ashby and Linklater have a shared ability to make a film built on discursive moments flow narratively, an affinity for counterculture movements or

‘Thank You For Your Service’ Review: Gripping Drama Of Iraq Vets Fighting The War Within Themselves

‘Thank You For Your Service’ Review: Gripping Drama Of Iraq Vets Fighting The War Within Themselves
Hollywood has certainly turned out countess numbers of films of men in battle. The list of war movies is endless, but not so films about what happens when those men come back from the fight. Sure, there have been classics like the 1946 Oscar winner The Best Years of Our Lives which focused on World War II vets returning home, or 1978’s Coming Home and 1989’s Born On The Fourth Of July focusing on the plight of Vietnam vets, but this kind of movie is increasingly…
