Guillermo del Toro Wins Best Director and The Shape Of Water Wins Best Picture at The Oscars!

The 90th Academy Awards has concluded and I think a lot of movie geeks are happy with the way things played out! I couldn't be more excited to see Guillermo del Toro win Best Director and his film The Shape of Water win Best Picture of the year!

We also saw Gary Oldman win Best Actor, which he definitely deserved! Frances McDormand, took home the Best Actress Award and Sam Rockwell won for Best Supporting Actor for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Then there was Jordan Peele, who won Best Original Screenplay for Get Out, which so freakin' cool!

Personally, the one film that I didn't think should have won was Call Me By Your Name for Best Adapted Screenplay. Molly's Game, Logan, Mudbound, and The Disaster Artist were all better films with better scripts!

Below you'll find a full list of the nominees with the winners bolded. Are you happy with the winners?

Author: Jon Lyus

It’s the Oscars! The 90th Academy Awards are being held tonight in Tinseltown in the Us of A and we’re with you all the way to the final praising open of the envelope for Best Picture. All the nominees and winners and absolutely none of the red carpet sideshow nonsense here…

Will this be the year of Three Billboards? Or will del Toro’s enchanting fairy tale The Shape Of Water run riot through the winner’s list?

The future is a bright place and it’ll be thrilling to

‘Blade Runner 2049’ sound mixers Doug Hemphill, Ron Bartlett: ‘Blade Runner was in our DNA’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

‘Blade Runner 2049’ sound mixers Doug Hemphill, Ron Bartlett: ‘Blade Runner was in our DNA’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“‘Blade Runner’ was in our DNA,” reveals sound mixer Doug Hemphill about his work on “Blade Runner 2049.” Hemphill and his colleague Ron Bartlett previously collaborated with Ridley Scott on the 2007 final-cut version of the 1982 sci-fi classic, re-mixing the film with all the new bells and whistles available to them. When they lent their talents to Denis Villeneuve‘s 2017 followup they reaped an Oscar nomination for Best Sound Mixing. Watch our exclusive video interview with Hemphill and Bartlett above.

See Will ‘Blade Runner 2049’ get Oscar revenge for unforgivable snubs of Ridley Scott’s original classic?

Their experience working on the original years after its release helped inform their work on the sequel. “It was great hearing [Scott’s] ideas,” Bartlett explains, “taking those thematic elements and moving it into this one.” This was especially true when it came to Vangelis‘s iconic score, which “2049” composers Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch paid

The Last Jedi Gets 4 Oscar Nominations

Star Wars is a machine. And some of the best people in the industry work on all aspects of these movies, as now controlled by Disney. So it should come as no shock that The Last Jedi was nominated for a handful of Oscars this Tuesday. Some believed that the 8th Star Wars sequel in the Skywalker saga could even take Best Picture, with noms for Best Director Rian Johnson and Supporting Actor Mark Hamill. That didn't come to pass. But John Williams appears to be a lock for his Best Original Score.

John Williams is the second most-nominated individual in Oscar history, and The Last Jedi marks his 51st nomination. Out of those 51 noms, though, he has only taken home 5 golden statues. Perhaps the latest Star Wars movie will bring him his sixth win.

Williams has some pretty stiff completion in the Best Original Score category. Also nominated on

The nominations for the 2018 Academy Awards are in and Guillermo del Toro's fantastic film, The Shape of Water, did pretty damn good as it leads the pack with thirteen of the nominations! Those include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Screenplay and more. This was one of my favorite movies of the year, so it was great to see it get a lot of love.

Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk ended up with eight nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri received seven nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor. Jordan Peele's Get Out also landed a few nominations including Best Director, which was cool!

As expected, James Franco and his film The Disaster Artist got snubbed amid sexual misconduct allegations surrounding the actor.

my picks for tonight’s 89th Academy Awards (the Oscars for 2016’s films)

Update:

Winners are now indicated. I correctly guessed 11 out of the 24 categories, which is slightly better than last year, when I guessed 10 out of 24.

Previous 02.26.17:

I’ve now seen as many of the nominated films as I will be able to before tonight’s ceremony, and here finally are my educated guesses about who will take home each award — projected winners are Xed at the lefthand side. Keep in mind: those Xes don’t represent whom I think should win Oscars but whom I think will win, based on what little I can grasp about how the Academy thinks. I’ve also noted which nominees I think should win. Kindly note that this is not necessarily my take on who did the best performance/writing/FX/whatever of the year, but whom I think is best among the nominees.

I have not noted a “should win” for the feature documentary category,

’13 Hours’ Oscar Nomination Rescinded After Academy Discovers ‘Telephone Lobbying’ Violation

’13 Hours’ Oscar Nomination Rescinded After Academy Discovers ‘Telephone Lobbying’ Violation
“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” has had one of its Oscar nominations for sound mixing revoked, the Academy announced on Feb. 25.

Greg P. Russell is no longer eligible for receiving an Oscar due to the Academy’s discovery of “telephone lobbying” that violated voting rules. The film and the rest of the sound team nominated — including Gary Summers, Jeffrey J. Haboush and Mac Ruth — is still eligible to win.

Upon recommendation by the Sound Branch Executive Committee, the Academy’s Board of Governors voted Thursday (2/23) to rescind the Sound Mixing nomination for Greg P.

Newswire: Academy rescinds Oscar nomination for 13 Hours crew member

Michael Bay’s Benghazi story 13 Hours pulled down a surprise Oscar nomination for itself this year, with Greg P. Russell, Gary Summers, Jeffrey J. Haboush and Mac Ruth all being nominated for Best Sound Mixing on the John Krasinski-starring film.

Now, though, a controversy has cropped up around Russell’s nomination, with Deadline reporting that the Academy voted today to rescind the honor. Russell apparently called members of the Academy during the nomination process to make them aware of his work on the film, a violation of the Oscars’ strict rules against direct telephone campaigning. Despite the ruling, though, Summers, Habrous, and Ruth will all still be eligible for the award.

And while we know that the drama surrounding the Best Sound Mixing Oscar is probably of minimal interest to everybody outside a very select and well-mixed group of folk, it’s always interesting to get a look at

  • ScreenDaily
Governors act on recommendation of sound branch executive committee.

Greg P Russell, who worked on Michael Bay’s war film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi, has been removed from the list of sound mixing nominees for an alleged violation of Academy campaign regulations.

The Academy announced the development on Saturday – one day before the 89th annual Academy Awards – after it emerged Russell had called fellow members of the sound branch during the nominations phase to make them aware of his work on the film.

The action is in direct violation of campaign regulations that prohibit telephone lobbying.

An additional nominee from the film will not replace Russell. The remaining sound mixing nominees from the film are Gary Summers, Jeffrey J. Haboush and Mac Ruth.

The Academy’s board of governors voted on Thursday to act upon the recommendation of the sound branch executive committee.
