Did You Catch the Sweet Oscars Moment Between Mahershala Ali and Jeff Bridges? (Video)

18 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Mahershala Ali shared a blink-and-you-missed it moment with Jeff Bridges in the moments after he beat him in the Best Supporting Actor category at the actors. Bridges, who played  a grizzled Texas ranger in “Hell of High Water,” won a Best Actor award for “Crazy Heart” in 2009. This was the first nomination for Ali, who played drug dealer and father figure Juan in “Moonlight.” As Ali passed Bridges on his way onstage to accept the award, Bridges reached out and patted him on the arm. Ali stopped, turned, and shook hands with the seven-times nominated veteran. Also Read: Is Mahershala Ali the. »

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

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceThe 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceAdriana Floridia2/21/2017 9:07:00 Am

The Best Supporting Actor Oscar is pretty much Mahershala Ali's to lose.

Despite that, this year's line-up of Best Supporting Actor nominees is incredibly strong, and anyone would be a worthy winner. However, Ali has won almost every award leading up to the Oscars, except for the Golden Globe which surprisingly went to Nocturnal Animals' Aaron Taylor Johnson (who wasn't even nominated for the Oscar). Moonlight is a major awards contender that right now looks like it's being outshone by La La Land. If Moonlight is guaranteed an Oscar in any category, it's this one.

We're breaking down the nominees for Best Supporting Actor below!

Verhoeven, Gyllenhaal Talk Sex, Violence and Movies at Berlinale Talents

12 February 2017 11:02 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Opening the Berlinale Talents panel discussion series on Sunday, festival jury president Paul Verhoeven and jury member Maggie Gyllenhaal took part in a candid and humorous conversation with film historian Peter Cowie spanning politics, religion, music, astronomy, art and, unsurprisingly, sex and violence. Asked about the role of politics in film, Verhoeven, director of the Golden Globes-winning “Elle” as well as earlier hits like “Basic Instinct” and “Total Recall,” rejected the notion that politics need to be part of film while noting that time and distance offer better opportunities to tackle political subject matter. “It’s very difficult for an artist to react immediately to what’s happening. You need distance to transcend. Reacting now to the crisis we face with this Mr. Trump from a film point of view would be extremely difficult because there is so much happening. The politics of the moment will ultimately be important in the next 10 or 15 years. »

Oscars: Jeff Bridges Only Bested By Two People in Terms of Academy Awards Career Length

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

With yet another opportunity to win this year, Jeff Bridges expands his Academy Awards career to 45 years — with the chance to add to it. This is quite an accomplishment as there are very few actors and actresses with a span of that long between their last or most recent nomination. Let’s take a look at some of these other legends with Oscar stretches almost as long as or even longer than that of Bridges.

This year Bridges is nominated for best supporting actor for Hell or High Water and is up against Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), Dev Patel (Lion), and Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals). Hell or High Water — a Western crime thriller directed by David Mackenzie and written by Taylor Sheridan — is also nominated for best picture, best original screenplay, »

Oscars: Jeff Bridges Thinks There Should Be a Special Award for Best Awards Campaigning

11 February 2017 7:20 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jeff Bridges has nearly a half-century worth of history with the Oscars. 

The actor now has seven nominations to his name; his first was for a supporting role in Peter Bogdanovich's 1971 drama The Last Picture Show. Nearly four decades passed before he finally took home an Oscar statuette: In 2010, his turn as a down-on-his-luck country musician in Scott Cooper's Crazy Heart earned him a nod from the Academy.

This year, his portrayal of Marcus Hamilton, a soon-to-retire Texas marshal in David Mackenzie's Hell or High Water, will bring Bridges back into the Dolby.

Oscars 2017: Why Mahershala Ali Will Beat Jeff Bridges for Supporting Actor

6 February 2017 8:13 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As the Hollywood guilds lay out their winners, a clear frontrunner has emerged in the Supporting Actor category. We dig into the final five contenders, listed in order of likelihood to win the Oscar:

Mahershala Ali popped out at Telluride and Toronto from Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” (A24) ensemble in the beating-heart role of the Cuban-born drug-dealer who nurtures the young boy “Little.” Ali stood out in part because he was better-known than the film’s other actors, enjoying a breakout year as a swath of projects hit screens.

Dauntingly, he shot three of them at the same time. In New York, he was violent New York gangster Cottonmouth on Marvel’s Netflix series “Luke Cage.” In Baltimore, he continued the fourth (and, voluntarily, his last) season of his Emmy-nominated role as Remy Danton, the slick former communications director for Frank Underwood, in “House of Cards.” And in Miami, on three successive weekends, »
