‘Three Billboards’ would be first to win Best Picture, two acting and writing Oscars without a directing nomination

‘Three Billboards’ would be first to win Best Picture, two acting and writing Oscars without a directing nomination
With Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor signed, sealed and almost delivered to Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, and Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture very real possibilities, “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” is positioned to do something at the Oscars that hasn’t been done before: win two acting awards, a screenplay award and Best Picture without a directing nomination.

That kind of above-the-line dominance usually comes with a corresponding nomination for Best Director, which historically has been linked with Best Picture. “Elmer Gantry” (1960) nearly pulled this off with wins for Best Actor Burt Lancaster, Best Supporting Actress Shirley Jones and Best Adapted Screenplay for writer-director Richard Brooks. But like “Three Billboards” writer-director Martin McDonagh, Brooks received Golden Globe and Directors Guild Awards nominations before getting snubbed by Oscar. Nominated for five Oscars, “Elmer Gantry” lost Best Picture to “The Apartment” and Best Original Score to “Exodus.”

The 21 Most Overlooked Directors in Oscar History, From Ingmar Bergman to Alexander Payne

  • Indiewire
It’s not easy to land a Best Director Oscar nomination — even for a white man. Of the hundreds of filmmakers recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in nine decades, just 10 have been African American or women — which is why 2018 nominees Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig are so rare. Not one black Best Director has won since John Singleton became the first nominee with “Boyz in the Hood” in 1991. Kathryn Bigelow is the only woman to ever take home a gold statue, for 2009’s “The Hurt Locker.” The only Asian director asked to accept top honors is Ang Lee, who prevailed for both “Brokeback Mountain” and “Life of Pi.”

Many great filmmakers have been nominated for their work outside of directing, including Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam, Sam Peckinpah, and Rob Reiner, but have never been invited to the Best Director party at all. Still more picked

'Chicago Justice' Cancelled by NBC

  • Yidio
2017-05-23T07:27:20-07:00'Chicago Justice' Cancelled by NBC

The verdict is in for Chicago Justice. NBC has canceled the Dick Wolf legal drama after one season.

Justice, the fourth addition to Dick Wolf's Chicago franchise, opened softly midseason with a 13-episode run that averaged a 1.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 8.7 million viewers. However, the drama boasted by far the smallest cast of the One Chicago franchise, with just five series regulars.

The legal spinoff, starring Philip Winchester and Carl Weathers, leaned decidedly more procedural than its soapier counterparts like Chicago Fire, reminiscent of Wolf's first NBC series, Law & Order. In addition to showrunner Michael S. Chernuchin, a Law & Order vet, the drama also welcomed several franchise vets onscreen during the 13-episode first season, including former star Richard Brooks and recurring favorite Tovah Feldshuh, with plans to bring back more familiar faces in season two.
