Denis Villeneuve (‘Blade Runner 2049’) and Luca Guadagnino (‘Call Me by Your Name’): Does BAFTA nom – DGA snub = Oscar nomination?

Denis Villeneuve (‘Blade Runner 2049’) and Luca Guadagnino (‘Call Me by Your Name’): Does BAFTA nom – DGA snub = Oscar nomination?
Filmmakers Denis Villeneuve (“Blade Runner 2049”) and Luca Guadagnino (“Call Me by Your Name”) were snubbed by the Directors Guild Awards, but both scored BAFTA bids. Since the British academy moved up its awards to precede the Oscars starting in 2000, five of its nominees for Best Director have made it in at the Academy Awards despite being left off the DGA roster. Can Villeneuve and Guadagnino do the same?

Back in 2000, Stephen Daldry was on the hunt for an Oscar for “Billy Elliot.” Things started out badly when he was snubbed by both the Golden Globes and the DGA. That year three directors contended at the Golden Globes, DGA Awards, and BAFTAs on their way to Oscar nominations: Ang Lee for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Ridley Scott for “Gladiator” and Steven Soderbergh for both “Erin Brockovich” and “Traffic.” With the fifth slot still up for grabs, English filmmaker Daldry scored

Ruth Bader Ginsburg on #MeToo Movement, Her SNL Parody, and Supreme Court Retirement

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in on the joke.

The Supreme Court justice told NPR’s Nina Totenberg during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday that she’s a big fan of Kate McKinnon, the comedian who parodies the jurist on SNL as a vitamin swigging, Hgh-taking progressive icon determined to outlast the Trump administration.

“I would like to say ‘Ginsburged’ sometimes to my colleagues,” Ginsburg said to loud applause, referencing McKinnon’s tag-line. “I liked the actress who portrayed me.”

Even at Sundance, where the likes of Keira Knightley and Jake Gyllenhaal can be seen walking around the snow-covered town, there’s no bigger star than Ginsburg. Crowds waited hours to see her speak this morning, and there’s a reason. A cottage industry has grown up around the 84-year-old justice, from comic books to coffee mugs, all bearing the nickname “The Notorious Rbg.” Asked about what her fellow justices think about her celebrity

SAG & PGA Awards: If you win both awards, does that guarantee you Best Picture at the Oscars?

SAG & PGA Awards: If you win both awards, does that guarantee you Best Picture at the Oscars?
In what has been one of the most confusing awards derbies in recent memory, we’re on the eve of what could be a make-or-break weekend in the Oscar race for Best Picture. The Producers Guild Awards will be handed out on Saturday night, January 20, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards follow on Sunday, January 21. Neither award has a perfect track record anticipating the Oscars, but your odds go way up if you win both awards.

The PGA Awards have been around since 1990, and 19 out of their 28 previous winners have gone on to win Best Picture at the Oscars (68%). The SAG Awards first gave out a prize for the best ensemble cast in 1996, and 11 out of 22 of their winners have won at the Oscars (50%). But there have been 10 years when the two awards groups agreed on the winner, and eight of those ended up taking the Oscar (80%). The match-ups are

2018 Oscars: Did Golden Globes preview another split between Best Picture and Best Director?

2018 Oscars: Did Golden Globes preview another split between Best Picture and Best Director?
In the last five years, the Academy Awards have split up the Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director. The days of the sweep, it seems, are long past with the helmer of the top prize no longer guaranteed the Best Director statuette. Quite the opposite, in fact; if you win one, its likely you are not winning the other.

Last year, Damien Chazelle won Best Director for “La La Land,” while “Moonlight” shocked us all to win Best Picture. The year before that, Alejandro G. Inarritu took home the Oscar for directing “The Revenant,” while “Spotlight” claimed the big award. 2015 was the only year in the past five to marry the two Oscars together, with Inarritu winning both Director and Picture for “Birdman.” In 2014, Alfonso Cuaron won for directing “Gravity” while “12 Years a Slave” was the best film of the year. And in 2013, “Argo” won Best Picture despite

5 Burning Questions About Sundance 2018

5 Burning Questions About Sundance 2018
As Sundance 2018 kicks into high gear, it comes at a pivotal time for the movie industry. Independent films, for the most part, aren’t the box office darlings they used to be. Only a small handful of titles are able to break through at the box office each year (like “The Big Sick” or “Lady Bird”). There’s also a cultural shift taking place for women in Hollywood, following the public exposure of men like Harvey Weinstein, who allegedly sexually harassed and assaulted dozens.

Sundance has always celebrated diverse voices, and the 2018 edition of the festival is no different. This year, 38% of movies here are directed by women and 32% of movies are from non-white directors. Here are the five biggest questions facing studios and filmmakers as the festival launches.

Oscars 2018: Why Steven Spielberg (‘The Post’) shouldn’t be counted out after DGA snub

Oscars 2018: Why Steven Spielberg (‘The Post’) shouldn’t be counted out after DGA snub
Those ready to discount Steven Spielberg‘s chances of reaping an Oscar nomination for directing “The Post” after his surprising DGA snub should take a deep breath. He could still be recognized by the notoriously esoteric directors branch of the academy, which often diverges from the choices of the more populist guild. One of the DGA slate — Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Christopher Nolan (“Dunkirk”), and Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) — could easily find themselves left out of the Oscar race in place of Spielberg.

Spielberg’s omission was especially shocking given his popularity at the guild. He’s won their Best Director prize three times (“The Color Purple” in 1985, “Schindler’s List” in 1993, and “Saving Private Ryan” in 1998) and contended for “Jaws” (1975), “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (1977), “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981), “E.T.: The

Oscars 2018: 6 Craft Snubs We Don’t Want to See on Nominations Morning

Oscars 2018: 6 Craft Snubs We Don’t Want to See on Nominations Morning
With “The Shape of Water,” Blade Runner 2049,” and “Dunkirk” likely to dominate the Oscar craft nominations next week, that could be bad news for such below-the-line contenders as “Darkest Hour,” “Mudbound,” “Phantom Thread,” and “The Post,” let alone “Get Out,” “Lady Bird,” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

That means plenty of surprises and snubs (not even frontrunners are immune), so here’s a look at six potential snubs that we definitely don’t want to see on January 23:

Rachel Morrison, Cinematography (“Mudbound”)

After earning the first Asc feature nomination for a woman, Rachel Morrison could make Oscar history as well with the cinematography branch. That would be a long overdue gender breakthrough, and the timing couldn’t be better, with the Academy striving for greater diversity and the emergence of the #metoo and #timesup movements. However, her nomination is not a lock with Oscar-winner Janusz Kaminski (“The Post

Oscars 2018 Comes Down to What Male Voters Are Thinking in the Year of #TimesUp

There is no monolithic pool of Oscar voters. There are more of them than there used to be, 7,258 to be exact — with about 1,500 younger, more diverse and international Academy members added over the past two years following #OscarSoWhite.

But this year, as balloting ended Friday and PriceWaterhouseCooper tabulates the votes ahead of the January 23 Oscar nominations, what exactly are we expecting?

‘SNL': Is There a New Episode Airing This Week?
“SNL” is back from its three-week holiday break this week, and it’s likely the show will have lots to say about the political developments that have happened since December. The show returns after three weeks of reruns with actor Sam Rockwell serving as the episode’s host. Rockwell is coming off a big win at the 2018 Golden Globes last weekend, where he took home the win for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Halsey will serve as musical guest during the episode.

“The Shape of Water” wins big at the 23rd Critics’ Choice Awards

Last night, the critics portion of the precursor season came to a head with the 23rd annual Critics’ Choice Awards. Chosen by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the winners here get a nice little boost as Academy Award voting is currently wrapping up. Remember, critics aren’t members of the Academy, so there’s limited impact to be found for Oscar, but televised victories are never a bad thing. Wins here are fuel for nominations, and little more. Still, forward momentum is useful and appreciated, to say the least. For a few movies, it was a great evening, with one Guillermo del Toro helmed picture doing particularly well. The Bfca went wild (comparatively) for The Shape of Water, which led the field with four wins, to go along with entering the night as the overall nominations leader. Other multi winners were Coco, Darkest Hour, Get Out, I, Tonya, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,
