Why Denzel Washington Could Make History with a Surprise Third Oscar Win

23 February 2017 9:12 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With a best actor nomination for his tour-de-force performance in Fences, Denzel Washington is on the verge of making history — again. 

Should he win, Washington would have more Oscars under his belt than any other African-American actor. He is already the most nominated, having landed his seventh nod this year for Fences, and is also the only African-American to win multiple acting Oscars.

But with Casey Affleck’s gut-wrenching turn in Manchester By the Sea wracking up best actor nominations and wins throughout awards season, this year’s Oscars will see Washington playing an unfamiliar role: the underdog.

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actor Race

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actor RaceThe 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actor RaceAdriana Floridia2/17/2017 10:44:00 Am

The Best Actor race just got exciting.

For most of the season, it looked like the winner in this category was set. Casey Affleck had been winning nearly every accolade imaginable for his masterful performance in Manchester by the Sea. However, this changed when Denzel Washington won the Screen Actors Guild award for his turn in Fences. Suddenly, we aren't so sure about Affleck winning the Oscar, as the winner of the SAG usually goes on to win the top prize.

While it's unlikely, the other three contenders could pull an upset, and if anyone were going to it may be Ryan Gosling. His co-star in La La Land, Emma Stone, is just about set to win the Oscar for Best Actress, »

Denzel Washington has already earned a spot in the history books with a seventh Oscar nomination and stands a solid shot at taking home an unprecedented third trophy across acting categories — both records for black thespians. Recent events suggest the 62-year-old stands a real chance at giving an acceptance speech come February 26 so, as this national treasure is set to win big — let’s take a look at the other non-white actors and actresses who are close behind.

Over the years Washington’s nominations have included best supporting actor for 1987’s Cry Freedom, best actor for 1992’s Malcolm X, best actor for 1999’s The Hurricane, and best actor for 2012’s Flight in addition to wins including best supporting actor for 1989’s Glory and best actor for 2001’s Training Day. On top of that, the multihyphenate snagged two nominations this year, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Long Weekend (1979)

28 January 2017 12:03 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Harmony is an ideal. If everyone just got along, the world could be one big campfire sing-along, a Coke commercial writ large, right? But unfortunately that’s not human nature; certainly not as it pertains to our fellow earthly citizens, or to the globe itself. The ‘70s saw the rise of the eco horror film; “Mother Nature’s back, and she’s pissed” practically emblazoned across posters from the likes of Frogs (1972), Phase IV (1974), and Day of the Animals (1977). Australia threw their hat in the ring at the tail end of the cycle with Long Weekend (1979), a fascinating look at environmental and personal disharmony.

Produced by the Australian Film Commission and the Victorian Film Corporation, and premiering at the 1978 Sitges Film Festival, Long Weekend was released in its native land and the U.S in March of ’79, and didn’t do much business at either end. Perhaps audiences were expecting something a little more visceral, »
