Oscar Nominations Scoreboard: 2018 Academy Awards Nominees Number By Film & Distributor

Specialty distributor Fox Searchlight had a good day on Oscar nominations morning. (Disney take note.) Big hauls for “The Shape of Water” (13) and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (7) added up to a winning total of 20. With both films competitive in the big categories, Searchlight is in the pole position to be the big winner at the Academy Awards on March 4.

Arguably the big surprise today was Focus Features with 14 Oscar slots, as “Phantom Thread” scored an unexpected six nominations, including Best Picture and Paul Thomas Anderson for Best Director, on top of the Winston Churchill biopic “The Darkest Hour” landing six nods including Best Picture — a shock as it did not earn a PGA nomination. “Victoria & Abdul” also added two craft nominations.

Netflix earned eight Oscar nominations, a record for the streaming service, with narrative feature “Mudbound” nabbing four, two Best Documentary features (“Icarus” and “Strong Island”) and one

Gary Oldman Proposed to His Wife Gisele Schmidt as Winston Churchill

Gary Oldman Proposed to His Wife Gisele Schmidt as Winston Churchill
Well, that's one way to pop the question. During Wednesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Gary Oldman revealed he proposed to his wife Gisele Schmidt while he was dressed as Winston Churchill. The 59-year-old actor played the former prime minister in the film The Darkest Hour. "There was a break in the filming, and we had talked about it and I just felt the urge," the actor told Jimmy Kimmel. "We were down in the war rooms, and I took her into the back room. And as Winston Churchill, I said 'Will you marry me?'" After Schmidt accepted the proposal, Oldman was called back on set—cutting the romantic moment short. "So you did not get the chance to...

Gary Oldman Celebrated His Golden Globes Win With His Family by His Side
As he took to the stage to accept his Golden Globe for best actor (drama) for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour, Gary Oldman thanked his wife, writer and art curator Gisele Schmidt, who he says "put up with my crazy for over a year." She watched on from the audience with tears in her eyes as the actor elicited laughs from the crowd as he continued to explain, "She would say to friends, 'I go to bed with Winston Churchill, but I wake up with Gary Oldman,' which is I suppose better than the other way around." The couple, who married in September 2017, looked totally loved up on the red carpet on the way to the awards, and Gisele later posed with Gary at the Focus Features afterparty, proudly kissing her award-winning husband.

Golden Globes 2018: Three Billboards take home four while Big Little Lies dominates the TV categories

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

The awards season kicked off last night at the lavish Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 75th Golden Globes ceremony. Politically charged and dominated by last year’s sexual harassment allegations, the women of the big and small screen came out in solidarity with each other by wearing black and Time’s Up pins. Nevertheless, it was Cecil B. De Mille recipient, Oprah Winfrey that stole the show with her presidential style speech in which she stated: “I want all of the girls watching here now to know, that a new day is on the horizon.”

As for the awards themselves, on the film front, Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri won four awards. Guillermo del Toro won best director for The Shape of Water, the film had the most nominations of the night. Gary Oldman won best actor in a drama for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour,

75th Golden Globes Brought Home by the Righteous Fury of an Avenging Oprah (Column)

For an awards ceremony so preceded by agitation for change, the 75th annual Golden Globes, on paper, were surprisingly conventional. On the television side, the Hollywood Foreign Press followed Emmy buzz to “Big Little Lies” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and, as usual, honored a glitzy debut show led by a female ingenue in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The film honorees were spread across more films, but also didn’t shock: “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri,” which didn’t get much traction at other awards shows, managed to sway the Hollywood Foreign Press as predicted, and the Globes have long had a weakness for performers playing historical figures, like Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill in “The Darkest Hour.”

On one hand, the Globes tend not to set agendas but to follow them — and the winners that rose to the surface were exceptional in how much they featured female roles and female stories. But for all

“Dunkirk” and “Darkest Hour” Get an Amazing Movie Trailer Mashup

If you didn’t know any better you might think this mashup of Dunkirk and The Darkest Hour were the same movie. In reality they do have something to do with each other since Winston Churchill was the Prime Minister during the time that Dunkirk almost became the last resting place for thousands upon thousands of soldiers. He ordered the strike that would hold off the Germans so that the troops could be evacuated, even if it wasn’t a popular decision. Even after this act however it was still apparent that the Germans might reach England invade if not halted where

This is Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill Dancing as James Brown

Even being dressed up as Winston Churchill couldn’t stop Gary Oldman from getting down to some James Brown. I can’t imagine it was too comfortable trying to move like that in the suit he had to wear but he was making it look good at least, or as good as he could. The suit of course is the one he’s wearing for The Darkest Hour, the movie that has been getting a lot of buzz since he’s gone over the top in recreating the look and feel of Winston Churchill and has done what many have called a fine job

Kyle Kohner’s Top 20 Films Of 2017

While it’s been a rough 2017 overall, It’s been a phenomenal year in film. With that being said, below is a list ranking what I believe are the top 20 films of 2017. It was painstakingly difficult cutting my list of 100 to 50, but even harder from 50 to 20. Some notable films that barely missed the cut include: “Wakefield,” “The Lovers,” “Wonder Woman,” “Baby Driver,” “Super Dark Times,” “It,” “Split,” “Personal Shopper,” “Columbus,” “Menashe” “and yes, I left out the fan favorite, “Dunkirk.” I also want to mention that there are films that I have excluded because I have yet to see them, such as: “Phantom Thread,” “The Darkest Hour,” “Bpm,” and “Molly’s Game” just to name a few.

The 13 Most Underrated Movies of 2017

The 13 Most Underrated Movies of 2017
If “Juno” had opened in 2017, would it still have been a box office hit? What about “Shakespeare in Love”? “Little Miss Sunshine”? “Slumdog Millionaire”?

To say that the state of independent films is at a crossroads is the understatement of the decade. The movie business has now become a tale of two audiences. There’s the tentpole blockbusters, like “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Wonder Woman,” which draw packed crowds at the multiplexes. And then there’s everything else.

For the last two years, even the month of December — a time when Oscar movies usually fare well — hasn’t necessarily been the most fertile ground for smaller movies. Blame the “Star Wars” franchise — the Disney blockbusters have become such Goliaths, they’ve put a dent in any title playing in a theater near them. That’s led to a pre-holiday lull for art-house movies, such as “The Darkest Hour” or “The Shape of Water” (both hovering

‘The Post’ Joins Top 2017 Specialty Box Office Openers

  • Indiewire
“The Post” (20th Century Fox), Steven Spielberg’s recreation of the 1971 Pentagon Papers First Amendment saga, opened strongly in nine theaters over three cities (Washington D.C. logically added to the usual New York and Los Angeles platform dates). On a weekend prior to Christmas that normally is not prime for its core older audience, it scored a strong initial result across the board. Its numbers in the four key usual platform theaters placed it among the biggest limited openers of the year, with likely better results still to come.

Two other openers, Michael Haneke’s “Happy End” (Sony Pictures Classics) and the Christian Bale western “Hostiles” (Entertainment Studios) also braved the tricky playtime to disappointing results. They are competing against multiple already established awards titles that continue to prosper in varying degrees.
