Like it or not, the awards race 2018 is already underway.
Painful as it may sound, the awards marathon is at least a 12-month proposition these days. With Sundance in the rear-view mirror, the talk of potential 2018 Oscar candidates is already underway in industry circles.
Below, Screen runs through 13 films that could be heading to the dance this time next year (the Oscars will be held one week later in 2018, on March 4).
Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig and Christoph Waltz (all previously nominated) star in awards perennial Alexander Payne’s social satire in which a man realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself. Currently in post-production, the film is slated for a December 22 release through Paramount, which is financing. Payne’s last six films have been Oscar-nominated.

Despite a best actress nomination for her brilliant turn as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in Jackie, Natalie Portman won't be at the Oscars tonight. No, it's not because she's joined Matt Damon in feuding with the award show's host, Jimmy Kimmel. The actress is currently in the late stages of her second pregnancy, so she'll likely be enjoying the Oscars from the comfort of her couch. "Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards," she said in a statement. "I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends." This is Natalie's third Oscar nomination, following her 2010 best actress win for Black Swan. »

With the Oscars coming up on Sunday, Et is looking back at some of the proud mamas who have rocked baby bumps at Hollywood's biggest awards show.
Portman was pregnant with her first child, son Aleph, when she won the Best Actress award for Black Swan in 2011. This year, she could win her second Oscar while pregnant with baby No. 2.
The Scandal star glowed as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars, cradling the baby bump from her first child, Isabelle.
"Beware of the pregnant woman about to give birth," the actress quipped to Et from the 2008 Oscars red carpet, as she was expecting baby No. 3.

Jason Isaacs as Dr. Volmer in A Cure for WellnessIt starts with a whispered melody. It will send frissons of familiarity, of a kind of upsetting longing for clarity. You know that song the odd English girl is singing, but you can't place it. Neither can Lockhart (Dane DeHaan, who they might have called Lockjaw, as he can barely seem to spit his words out), which is what draws him into the guts of a mystery. And it draws the film into a slithering spiral, compels us to observe an autopsy of modern horror. What half-remembered giallo fugue is Gore Verbinski spooning up for us like medicine, pinioned to our chairs like one of the zombie patients in the film’s sinister clinic? A puzzle picture, a conspiracy thriller, a kind of baroque classical nightmare, A Cure For Wellness is too sturdy, busy and sure of itself to be much of a horror film. »
Aftermath is a nail-biting revenge film based on the real life incident where a man hunts down the air traffic controller he holds responsible for a plane crash that killed his wife and children.
Schwarzenegger, as he showed in Sabotage and the recent zombie film Maggie, has matured into an interesting dramatic actor; here, he is a thoughtful and imposing screen presence, but one who can dish out suitably ferocious revenge if is required. Like the recent box office hit Sully, Aftermath takes an extraordinary real life incident and turns it into nail-biting, must- see cinema: except this time with Arnie at the controls, which means audiences are in for a guaranteed thrill ride.
Directed by Elliott Lester (Blitz, Chop Shop, Sleepwalkers), and produced by Black Swan and The Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky, Aftermath also stars Maggie Grace and Scoot McNairy, and showcases Arnie on superb form as a man »

“Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive,” Scarlett Johansson told Marie Claire, speaking out for the first time about her cast in in Ghost in the Shell. “Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that — the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.”
Ahead of a release this March, Paramount has now released the second full-length trailer, which gets more into the story of how Johansson’s character is reborn as a human-cyborg hybrid, as well highlights a great deal of new action. With a cast also featuring Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, and Michael Pitt, as well as a score by Clint Mansell (The Fountain, Black Swan) check out the new trailer below.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was already expected to be a huge hit this summer, but we got even more proof of this notion earlier this week, when fans voted the Guardians 2 Super Bowl trailer as the best movie commercial that aired during the big game. Today we have word that this superhero sequel accomplished a Marvel first, months before the movie even hits theaters. Insiders claim that, during a recent test screening, the sequel earned a rare and possibly unprecedented perfect score of 100. Marvel's approach to the test screening process is a bit different from other studios', but it is still the first time a Marvel movie has ever scored 100.
While it isn't clear when and where the test screening took place, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that most other studios recruit random people for their test screenings at grocery stores and supermarkets in Los Angeles, but Marvel »
The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am
This year's Best Actress race is extremely competitive.
Some of our favourite performances couldn't secure the nomination, and it was simply because there were so many incredible female performances. We're sad that names like Annette Bening for 20th Century Women, Amy Adams for Arrival and Hailee Steinfeld for The Edge of Seventeen weren't among the nominees, but we also love the five nominated performances so much. Seriously, it was just a great year for women acting in film, and with the talent out there today, it's always going to be hard, and therefore even more of an honour, to land that Oscar nomination.
Though there's five women in the running here, the race has been pretty much narrowed down to two major threats. »
