2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress
Historically the Best Actress Oscar has usually been awarded to an ingenue while the Best Actor prize is typically taken by a veteran. But these age biases could be changing. While a whopping 32 of the 92 Best Actress champs at the have been in their 20s when they picked up their Oscars, the last two women to win were 60-year-old Frances McDormand and 45-year-old Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”). And Colman’s closest rival was Glenn Close (“The Wife”), who was hoping for her first win at age 71. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Actress.)

Fifteen of the 92 Best Actress winners, including Colman, were in their 40s when they took to the stage while 34 were thirtysomething.

SXSW: Neil Gaiman Talks Casting ‘Good Omens’ Through Email
When it came to getting the television adaptation of “Good Omens” right, author and showrunner Neil Gaiman mentally ran things by the ghost of his novel writing partner Terry Pratchett. Keeping it true to what he and Pratchett would have wanted was a “mad passion project.”

“Normally if you are the writer in television, your control extends up to the moment that you stop typing and you hand the thing over and people will do with it what they want to do with it. The great thing about ‘Good Omens’ was because I made myself showrunner, it meant that the director Douglas [Mackinnon] and I got to work together and nobody go to out vote us and I got to make the thing that I wanted,” Gaiman said at SXSW Saturday.

The series premieres May 31 on Amazon and has an all-star cast that includes Michael Sheen as earth-dwelling angel Aziraphale and

James McAvoy Puts Oscars Signature Shirt Up For Charity Fundraiser
Actor James McAvoy found a Sharpie on Oscars night and decided to have some fun with it. Now he’s turning that whim into a charitable endeavor.

The BAFTA and Golden Globes-nominated actor, known for his roles as Professor Charles Xavier in several X-men films and as a man with 23 personalities in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, found a Sharpie on the floor at the Oscars.

“I started to ask all our celebrity friends to start signing my shirt,” he said in an Instagram post. “I don’t know why I had that idea, but I did.” Actually, McAvoy later admitted it was an “off-the-cuff, alcohol-infused idea.”

He proceeded to collect autographs from his fellow celebs across his crisp white shirt, even though he was a presenter and would be viewed by millions.

But now a better idea has emerged from that light-hearted fun. McAvoy has started a campaign where

Julianne Moore reveals she was fired from ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’: ‘It’s still kind of painful’ [Watch]
It’s well known that “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” was originally set to star Julianne Moore as Lee Israel before she left the project in 2015 and was later replaced by Melissa McCarthy. Well, according to Moore, she didn’t leave on her own accord.

“I didn’t leave that movie. I was fired,” Moore revealed Thursday on “Watch What Happens Live” while promoting her new film “Gloria Bell” (watch above). “Nicole [Holofcener] fired me. So, you know, that’s the truth.”

Holofcener, who shared a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nomination with Jeff Whitty for the film, was initially slated to direct. At the time of Moore’s departure in July 2015, her exit, which occurred a week before production was scheduled to start, was chalked up to the usual “creative differences.”

“I think she didn’t like what I was doing,” Moore continued. “We had just been rehearsing and doing pre-production and stuff,

What do you do when Armageddon is days away and you’ve lost the Antichrist? Leave it to good and evil.

Amazon dropped the full-length trailer for Neil Gaiman‘s upcoming limited series “Good Omens” on Wednesday (watch above), giving us a closer look at Michael Sheen‘s finicky angel Aziraphale and David Tennant‘s carefree demon Crowley (and their questionable hair) as they team up to stop the apocalypse. As the trailer — which is backed by Queen and David Bowie‘s “Under Pressure” — reveals, the Antichrist is actually a blissfully unaware 11-year-old boy named Adam (Sam Tyler Buck) who’s gone missing.

“If we don’t find him, it’ll be the war to end everything,” Crowley says.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Are Summoned in Fantastic New Trailer for Good Omens

Amazon has released a new full trailer for their great-looking new series adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens. In the story an angel and demon team up to save the world. It’s the last great battle between heaven and hell.

This latest trailer offers a lot of incredibly fun new footage including the four horseman of the apocalypse and the Devil himself. While the series looks like it deals with some intense subject matter, it looks like it’s going to be quite charming.

“It’s a massive, epic, sweeping show. I can’t wait to see the finished product. It’s quite hard to imagine at the moment.

David Tennant Plays A Demon In Wild New Trailer For Good Omens

The upcoming adaptation of Good Omens should be a real treat. Based on the 1990 collaborative novel by the dearly missed Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, it focuses on the birth of the son of Satan and the arrival of the apocalypse, featuring the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, angels and demons trying to prevent the end of the world and a really bad case of mistaken identity that results from the Antichrist being switched for a normal baby.

With Neil Gaiman producing and also taking on the showrunner role, the project should be a stylish and accurate representation of what he and Pratchett put forth in their well-regarded fantasy novel. On top of that, they’ve also assembled an incredibly talented cast, including Michael Sheen and David Tennant as the angel and demon odd couple, Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, Miranda Richardson, Frances McDormand (who voices God) and, believe it or not,

Good Omens gets a new trailer, Brian Cox to voice Death

Amazon on Wednesday released the first full-length trailer for its anticipated limited series Good Omens, which is set to bow with all six episodes on Friday, May 31.

Good Omens takes place in 2018, when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, and tempers are flaring.

‘Good Omens’ Trailer: David Tennant and Michael Sheen Try to Cancel the Apocalypse
If the world was about to end, you’d do worse than to trust the fate of all living things to an angel and a demon who look like Michael Sheen and David Tennant.

Luckily, Aziraphale (Sheen) and Crowley (Tennant) will have some help in “Good Omens,” an upcoming six-part series based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s classic 1990 fantasy novel. Set in modern-day London (but stretching across multiple millennia at various points), the story follows this unlikely pair as they look to hold off the arrival of the Anti-christ and a climactic battle between Heaven and Hell.

Complicating these matters is a supporting cast of characters who could easily take up their own series. Jon Hamm co-stars as head Archangel Gabriel, while Frances McDormand and Benedict Cumberbatch provide the voices of God and Satan, respectively. The impressive ensemble also includes Nick Offerman, Michael McKean, Jack Whitehall, Mireille Enos,

Dear Glenn Close: 5 reasons why you’re this awards season’s biggest winner

Dear Glenn Close: 5 reasons why you’re this awards season’s biggest winner
Well, Glenn…I’m not even sure where to begin.

I consider you to be one of the world’s greatest actresses. And I say that as someone who has been watching your dazzling work in film, television and theatre for almost four decades.

I also consider you to be the world’s greatest actor to have never received the Academy Award. After seeing your superb performance in “The Wife” last year, I was certain that that was going to change. In December, I presented my “Five Reasons Why Glenn Close Will Win the Best Actress Oscar.” Once you pulled off that upset victory at the Golden Globes, we all declared that the race was over. You were a shoo-in.

Words can’t express how devastated so many of us felt when it turned out that we were wrong. I honestly couldn’t believe my ears when the announcement was made.

Rami Malek has now gotten his Oscar and his Emmy from Allison Janney [Watch]
Allison Janney is Rami Malek‘s good luck charm. The Oscar winner presented the Best Actor Oscar to Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) on Sunday alongside Gary Oldman, nearly two and and a half years after she handed off another statuette to him, the Emmy.

At the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2016, Janney, who has seven Emmys of her own, was tasked with presenting Best Drama Actor, which went to Malek for his breakout performance in “Mr. Robot” (watch below). Malek beat out heavyweights and mainstays Kyle Chandler (“Bloodline”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”), Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”), Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”) and Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”). Many thought Spacey would finally win his first Emmy with Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) and Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”) out of the way, but he got hacked by the newbie.

Holy joke: how God became an unlikely TV comedy staple

In Miracle Workers and God Friended Me, God is threatening earthlings and using Facebook just months before Frances McDormand takes on the role

As of late, the old God is more old hat than Old Testament. The image of the serious-faced Caucasian man clad in a long, flowing white beard and an even longer white robe is passé, as is the worshipful distance religious art tends to keep from him. The TV landscape of 2019 has allowed more room for an omnipotent deity than usual, all the while demystifying God as a person and idea. Sacrilegious? Maybe, but it has made for some fine entertainment (even if the creators might be consigning themselves to hell).

Inside the Vanity Fair Oscar Party With Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Chris Evans
Glenn Close couldn’t leave the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Even though she’d lost in the best actress category on Sunday night, she still found herself winning the title of the queen of Hollywood. Throughout the celebrity-packed soiree, guests kept coming up and telling her how much they adored her. At around midnight, when Close decided it was time to get some sleep, the long line of movie and media stars paying their respects wouldn’t stop.

First, Close nibbled on an In-n-Out burger with Gayle King. Next, there were some kind words from Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, who were seated in a booth overlooking the dance floor. Close walked into the main room at Wallis Annenberg Center. Jeff Goldblum stopped her for a kiss. James Marsden wanted a hug. She was being pulled and patted and comforted by strangers.

She eyed her exit; there was just one man blocking her escape.

“I think we’re all baffled by this.”

“I wish I knew [how to explain it].”

“I was devastated when that envelope was opened.”

“I can explain away some things, but I don’t understand that one.”

That’s what some of our editors said in our post-Oscars slugfest (watch above) about Olivia Colman‘s shocking Best Actress upset over Glenn Close (“The Wife”). Heavily favored and armed with every major precursor except the BAFTA, which Colman won for “The Favourite,” Close felt like a shoo-in to take home her first little gold man on her seventh nomination, and her loss is still a head-scratcher for many.

“For people like us that rely on campaigning and interviews, Olivia Colman is not of the stature of, say, a Frances McDormand or a Christian Bale to not run a campaign, and she ran zero campaign and still won,” Chris Beachum said in our slugfest with Tom O’Neil,
