Oscars: With PGA Win, ‘The Big Short’ Is Your New Best Picture Frontrunner

The Big Short.”

Michael B. Jordan said the words so matter-of-factly, so quickly on the heels of recounting the list of Producers Guild of America nominees for theatrical motion pictures, that no one in the Hyatt Century Plaza ballroom quite knew how to react. The spotlight was floating around the room, looking for the winners.

“Wait, did ‘The Big Short’ just win?” That seemed to be what everyone was asking themselves and their table mates. Almost as if he sensed the question wafting throughout the crowd, Jordan stepped back up to the microphone. “Uh, yes, you won.”

Before I bolted for the door to beat the valet line, the last thing I saw was producer Jeremy Kleiner shooting out of his seat with hands raised high, two years after tying for the very same prize as a producer of “12 Years a Slave.”

History — recent history, anyway — tells us that might well be game, »

Jacqueline West at the premiere of The Revenant.© Frazer Harrison for Getty ImagesClothing was always in her blood though Costume Design came later. Two time Oscar nominee Jacqueline West (Quills, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), the daughter of an avante garde designer, originally pursued fashion.

Her filmography in the subsequent 25 years has been a grab bag of film genres --  her latest The Revenant (2015) is a 180 from Henry & June (1990) you must agree -- but the consistent throughline is that she's in demand with the auteur set. She's worked repeatedly with Terrence Malick, David Fincher, Philip Kaufman, and Ben Affleck. The Revenant marks her first, though one assumes not last, collaboration with Alejandro González Iñárritu. To get in the right mindset, »
