TCM Classic Film Festival: Martin Scorsese and James Ivory chat with fans about Oscars at Chinese Theater

TCM Classic Film Festival: Martin Scorsese and James Ivory chat with fans about Oscars at Chinese Theater
This is the second part of Gold Derby’s coverage of the 9th Annual TCM Classic Film Festival where Oscar winners and film fans gathered at Hollywood’s famed Chinese Theater. (Read Part 1 of our report here.) Every day was filled with Oscar winners sharing stories and here are some of the best.

Martin Scorsese (2006 Best Director for “The Departed”) received the first Robert Osborne Award on the opening night of the festival from Leonardo DiCaprio (2015 Best Actor for “The Revenant”) and gave an impassioned speech about the importance of preserving film culture. He also joked that he refuses to stay in a hotel that doesn’t have TCM on their cable television and that he and DiCaprio’s film “The Aviator” is probably the only film of his that TCM would be able to show unedited.

From Kissing Cary Grant to a 65-Year Marriage: Meet 93-Year-Old Oscar Presenter Eva Marie Saint

From Kissing Cary Grant to a 65-Year Marriage: Meet 93-Year-Old Oscar Presenter Eva Marie Saint
Eva Marie Saint might not have been immediately recognizable to younger audiences when she presented at Sunday’s 90th Academy Awards, but the 93-year-old’s 70-year career has had no shortage of memorable moments.

The actress has appeared in more than 161 productions, according to her alma mater, Bowling Green State University, where there is now a theater named after her. Over the decades, she starred alongside legendary actors like Marlon Brando, Paul Newman, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Cary Grant.

Over the course of her career, she was also able to work with some of Hollywood’s greatest directors,

Who Won The Oscars?

By Dancin' Dan

Rita Moreno and Eva Marie Saint, that's who.

These two living legends showed up on the red carpet looking like your beyond-fabulous favorite aunt - Rita even wearing the very same dress she wore when she won her Best Supporting Actress Oscar 56 Years Ago. They then presented on the telecast to giant standing ovations, basking in the glow of the audience like the Queens of Cinema they are...

Oscars 2018: #MeToo, McDormand and Inclusion Riders on the Storm

Oscars 2018: #MeToo, McDormand and Inclusion Riders on the Storm
The best moment of the Oscar ceremony: At the end of the night, as Guillermo del Toro gives his Best Picture acceptance speech for The Shape of Water, Greta Gerwig clutches a hand to her heart and says the lip-readable words, to nobody in particular, "I love him." It was that kind of Oscar night, high on positivity, though nowhere near as high as whoever designed that psychedelic blue-crystal stage set. And it was the sort of Oscar bash when Rita Moreno could get a standing ovation for showing up

The 90th Academy Awards took place last night, and it was a magical night.

Jimmy Kimmel took on hosting duties for the second year in a row, and let's just say things went much more smoothly this time than the last. Because it was such a milestone event, the ceremony went for a more "Classic Hollywood" feeling, celebrating the decades of winners with montages, bringing back Hollywood legends like Rita Moreno and Eva Marie Saint, and keeping the night rather safe and classy in terms of the comedy segments. Our favourite gag of the night was "The Price is Right" inspired competition, where the person with the shortest speech

Oscars 2018: The good (Frances McDormand and Jordan Peele), bad (‘Lady Bird’ shutout), and ugly (Kobe Bryant)

For the awards-obsessed writers and editors of Gold Derby, the Oscars are like every Christmas, birthday and wedding rolled into one. We eagerly await the announcements of the winners in every category, analyze the surprises and snubs, celebrate our own savvy predictions, and bemoan those whose predictions showed us up.

Below are our collective thoughts on the highs, lows and Wtf moments of the 2018 Oscars ceremony on Sunday night. And check out the complete list of winners here.

Good

It was overall a really entertaining, heartfelt, poignant, emotional and even a little political show. Well aced, great winners, beautiful use of film clips, great performances, and a great host. Rob Licuria

Three words – Eva. Marie. Saint. This legendary star of the silver screen earned a richly deserved standing ovation and, per usual, was an absolute class act. Saint was so touching in reflecting on her late husband Jeffrey Hayden and

2018 Oscar telecast review: Jimmy Kimmel and Frances McDormand score in a nostalgic and glamorous ceremony

2018 Oscar telecast review: Jimmy Kimmel and Frances McDormand score in a nostalgic and glamorous ceremony
Set against a backdrop of political upheaval, sexual harassment and school shootings, Oscar’s 90th anniversary celebration could have been one of the most emotionally charged ceremonies in recent years. Instead, thanks to a superb sophomore hosting job by Jimmy Kimmel and a significant nostalgia factor, this year’s Oscar ceremony was a well-paced celebration of the best of Hollywood. And they opened the right envelope! Check out the full list of winners here.

After a short black-and-white parody of old newsreels Kimmel wasted no time addressing the accounting elephant in the room — last year’s historic Best Picture mix-up — by delivering a word of warning to the nominees: “This year, when you hear your name called, don’t get up right away.”

Kimmel said early in his monologue that his goal was to keep the evening positive, and he largely succeeded, particularly when encouraging people to support movements like #TimesUp and #MeToo.

Margot Robbie's Impromptu Sewing, Get Out's Big Moment: What You Didn't See at Oscars 2018
From many big moments for the winners (including Get Out‘s Jordan Peele!) to the friendly catchup sessions between A-listers during commercial breaks, we caught every moment from the 2018 Academy Awards not shown on TV. With Envelopegate still looming from last year, we had a keen eye on all the behind-the-scenes action.

Here are the best backstage moments you didn’t see.

From Sandra Bullock to Jane Fonda, Hollywood Legends Bring Star Power to Oscars Rehearsals

From Sandra Bullock to Jane Fonda, Hollywood Legends Bring Star Power to Oscars Rehearsals
Sandra Bullock wasn’t about to let a few sniffles spoil the fun.

Taking center stage at the Dolby Theatre late Saturday afternoon to rehearse the lines she’ll deliver as a presenter at the 90th Academy Awards, the actress spied a microphone rising up from the floor directly in front of her. “Suddenly the dress is just riding up,” she said, envisioning an Oscar night wardrobe malfunction should the pop-up mic catch on her gown. “Chiffon billowing up…”

Although a bit under the weather (“I have my kid’s cold!” she told the production crew, warning of “phlegm” issues

2018 Oscars: Who will present and perform on the 90th Academy Awards hosted by Jimmy Kimmel?

2018 Oscars: Who will present and perform on the 90th Academy Awards hosted by Jimmy Kimmel?
Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel will welcome Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway back for a do-over after they named the wrong winner of Best Picture last year. They had been given the Best Actress envelope by mistake and when Dunaway saw the words “La La Land” under the name Emma Stone she blurted them out. The real winner was “Moonlight.”

Stone is also set to present but, in a break with tradition, she won’t be handing out Best Actor at the 90th Academy Awards. That honor goes to two veteran Oscar winners, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren. Two others past Best Actress winners, Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence have been tapped to present that prize this year (last year’s winner of Best Actor, Casey Affleck, would have traditionally done that but he bowed out of appearing in the wake of the #MeToo movement). However, last year’s supporting winners

2018 Oscars: What time does the show start, who will win, who hosts the 90th Academy Awards?

The 2018 Oscars air live nationwide on Sunday, March 4 from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood beginning at 5:00 p.m. Pt/8:00 p.m. Et on ABC. The 90th Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel (“Jimmy Kimmel Live”). He was invited back to emcee after doing an outstanding job last year, especially in those chaotic closing moments after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that “La La Land” had won Best Picture when it was really “Moonlight.”

Those two Oscar winners have been invited back for a do-over. They will be presenting Best Picture again, which we are predicting will go to Martin McDonagh‘s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Our exclusive odds — which are based on Oscar predictions by 30 expert journalists, our in-house team of 7 editors and thousands of readers — also forecast that the film’s star, Frances McDormand, will win a second Oscar for her searing performance

Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?

Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?
One of the highlights of the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony was the surprise addition of 20 Oscar winners presenting to that year’s acting nominees. It started with five Best Supporting Actress champs (Whoopi Goldberg, Goldie Hawn, Anjelica Huston, Eva Marie Saint, Tilda Swinton) who gave out the award to Penelope Cruz, welcoming her to their club. While all of those presenting that evening had indeed won the category before, each one often had no connection at all to the person they were introducing.

The following year new producers followed a similar format of five people presenting to a new crop of five for the lead categories only. While all of them had working relationships with the nominees (like Michelle Pfeiffer for Jeff Bridges and Stanley Tucci for Meryl Streep), most of them were not Oscar winners.

2018 Oscars presenters: ‘Wonder Woman’ Gal Gadot, ‘Star Wars’ cast led by Mark Hamill
Ten more names have been added to the list of presenters at this year’s Academy Awards. They are led by stars of two of the biggest movies of the year: Gal Gadot, who took on the title role in “Wonder Woman” and Mark Hamill, who headlined “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the latest installment in the franchise that launched his career more than four decades ago. Two of Hamill’s co-stars, Oscar Isaac and Kelly Marie Tran, are also slated to take to the stage of the Dolby Theater on March 4.

Among those also scheduled to present are Armie Hammer, who co-stars in the Best Picture nominee “Call Me By Your Name” and Tony and Grammy winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”) who is featured in the upcoming “Mary Poppins Returns.” Also on the list are Gina Rodriguez, Wes Studi and Zendaya.

Perhaps most intriguing is the inclusion of 1954 Best Supporting Actress winner Eva Marie Saint.
