Ed Harris movies: 15 greatest films ranked from worst to best, including ‘Apollo 13,’ ‘The Truman Show,’ ‘The Hours’
In Ed Harris‘s over-40-year career he has surprisingly never won an Oscar or an Emmy, despite four nominations from the motion picture academy and two from the TV academy. Emmy voters can start to make up for that this year as the second season of HBO’s “Westworld” premieres on Sunday, April 22. In honor of his return to the small screen, let’s take a look back at some of his best big-screen performances. Tour through our photo gallery above of Harris’s 15 greatest films, ranked from worst to best.

Harris received his first Oscar nomination in 1995 after almost two decades in front of the camera: Best Supporting Actor for “Apollo 13.” He subsequently competed for “The Truman Show” (Best Supporting Actor in 1998), “Pollock” (Best Actor in 2000), and “The Hours” (Best Supporting Actor in 2002). He didn’t win any of those, and he hasn’t been nominated since,

Bruce Willis movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, including ‘Die Hard,’ ‘The Sixth Sense,’ ‘Pulp Fiction’

Bruce Willis movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, including ‘Die Hard,’ ‘The Sixth Sense,’ ‘Pulp Fiction’
The latest Bruce Willis for 2018 is a remake of the Charles Bronson 1970s movie “Death Wish.” Willis has always been a box office success during his career and had occasional positive response from critics as well. Let’s take a look back at his greatest films in our photo gallery (view above) that ranks his top 15 performances from worst to best.

Willis grew up in New Jersey, but after appearing in a college production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” he dropped out and left for New York City to launch a professional acting career. He first became a famously flashy bartender in various clubs (think Tom Cruise in “Cocktail”), but found his big break years later understudying and later replacing Ed Harris in the acclaimed off-Broadway production of Sam Shepard’s play “Fool for Love.”

Who is your favorite multiple Best Actress Oscar winner? [Poll]

Who is your favorite multiple Best Actress Oscar winner? [Poll]
Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) is a few weeks away from becoming one of 14 women who’ve won more than one Best Actress Oscar. McDormand, who took home the prize for “Fargo” (1996), would join 12 other women as two-time winners, two shy of Katharine Hepburn’s all-time record of four. Before McDormand joins this elite club, which of the first lucky 13 champs is your favorite?

Luise Rainer was the first actress to win two and the first performer to win back-to-back Oscars, triumphing for “The Great Ziegfeld” (1936) and “The Good Earth” (1937). Bette Davis (1935’s “Dangerous” and 1938’s “Jezebel”) joined her the following year. Eleven years later, Davis’ pal Olivia de Havilland won her second Oscar for 1949’s “The Heiress,” three years after her “To Each His Own” victory.

Two years after that, Vivien Leigh, who first took home the award for “Gone with the Wind” (1939), won for “A Streetcar Named Desire

Will ‘Get Out’ and ‘Call Me by Your Name’ replicate their WGA wins at the Oscars?

Will ‘Get Out’ and ‘Call Me by Your Name’ replicate their WGA wins at the Oscars?
Get Out” got a huge Oscar boost by winning Best Original Screenplay at Sunday’s Writers Guild Awards, while “Call Me by Your Name” picked up Best Adapted Screenplay as expected. Now they will try to replicate their victories at the Oscars, which has matched both WGA winners 12 times since WGA standardized its categories 33 years ago.

More than any other guild, there are a lot of asterisks when it comes to WGA champs and comparisons with Oscar. There have been a number of eventual screenplay Oscar winners who were ineligible at WGA, including four this century: 2010’s “The King’s Speech (Best Original Screenplay), 2012’s “Django Unchained” (Best Original Screenplay), 2013’s “12 Years a Slave” (Best Adapted Screenplay) and 2014’s “Birdman” (Best Original Screenplay). This year, of course, Martin McDonagh’s original script “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was ineligible.

‘Billions’ Season 3 Adds John Malkovich in Guest Role

‘Billions’ Season 3 Adds John Malkovich in Guest Role
John Malkovich has signed on for a guest starring role in Season 3 of the Showtime drama “Billions,” the premium cabler announced Wednesday.

Malkovich will play Russian billionaire Grigor Andolov. The role is certainly fitting considering that Malkovich previously played a Russian mobster named Teddy KGB in the movie “Rounders,” which was written by “Billions” co-creators David Levien and Brian Koppelman.

“John appeared in our first two films, ‘Rounders’ and ‘Knockaround Guys,’ and we have a long creative history together. We are ecstatic to be reunited with the man who played Teddy KGB once again,” said Koppelman and Levien.

Malkovich is an Emmy-winning and two-time Oscar nominated actor, director, producer and fashion designer. He received Oscar nominations for his roles in “Places in the Heart” and “In the Line of Fire.” In 1985, he appeared in the Broadway revival of “Death of a Salesman,” which would earn him an Emmy when it was made into a television film.

Oscars 2018: Margot Robbie (‘I, Tonya’) could make history as an actress and producer

Oscars 2018: Margot Robbie (‘I, Tonya’) could make history as an actress and producer
Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) is a shoo-in for a nomination for Best Actress next week, but she could end up making Oscars history in another category as well as was recently reported by one of our Experts, Sasha Stone (Awards Daily). Robbie is also a producer of the film, so if “I, Tonya” also receives a Best Picture nomination she would be the first actress to receive acting and producing nominations for the same film. After a year that saw actresses Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) all win Emmys as both actors and producers of TV programs, it would be fitting for Robbie’s passion project to go the distance with a pair of historic Oscar nominations.

It has been an incredible year for female stories, both real and fictional. The “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” movements have shined

John Malkovich Joins Ted Bundy Thriller ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’
John Malkovich has joined the cast of the thriller “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” as Judge Edward Cowart about the 1979 murder trial of serial killer Ted Bundy.

Cowart presided over the trial and sentenced Bundy to death. The trial was nationally televised, and drew media attention as Bundy eventually represented himself and developed a rapport with the judge. Zac Efron is starring in the role of Bundy opposite Lily Collins, who will be playing his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer.

The story is told from the point of view of Kloepfer, who had no knowledge of the murders while she was with Bundy. Production is set to begin on Jan. 18 with Joe Berlinger directing from a screenplay by Michael Werwie. The script won the Nicholl Fellowship prize and was named to the Black List.

Bundy was executed in 1989. Shortly before his execution, he confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

Sally Field Memoir on the Way

Field on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

They like her. They really like her. Grand Central Publishing (Gcp) has snagged the North American rights to Sally Field’s upcoming memoir, Deadline reports. Described as the two-time Oscar winner’s “first extensive discussion of her private life and childhood,” “In Pieces” is scheduled for publication in fall of 2018.

The book is “about the little girl that I was, about the teenager who backed into becoming a celebrity, and about the craft that taught me to stand on my feet, a craft that helped me find my way out of a complicated childhood,” Field said. The “Amazing Spider-Man 2” actress has spent five years writing the memoir.

“I have been a lifelong fan of Sally Field’s work on the stage and screen, and it was a thrill to discover that her talents extend deep into the craft of writing, as well,

Here Are 59 Actors Who Landed Oscar Nominations For Portraying Characters With Disabilities

Here Are 59 Actors Who Landed Oscar Nominations For Portraying Characters With Disabilities
Triumph over adversity is drama defined, and Oscar nominations often go to actors whose characters find victory over physical or mental afflictions. The earliest example goes back to 1947; that was the year that non-pro Harold Russell won Best Supporting Actor and a special award for “The Best Years of Our Lives.” Russell was a WWII veteran who lost both of his hands while making a training film. Of note: Of the 59, 27 of these nominations went on to a win. This year’s roster of stars playing afflicted characters includes Jake Gyllenhaal as bombing victim Jeff Baumer in “Stronger,” Andrew Garfield as polio survivor Robin Cavendish in “Breathe,” Bryan Cranston as a millionaire quadriplegic in “The Upside,” and Sally Hawkins in two roles, as an arthritic painter in “Maudie” and a mute lab worker in “The Shape of Water.”

Tiff Audience Award goes to “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”

Yesterday afternoon, the Toronto International Film Festival announced their award winners. Notably, the Audience Award, which is the top prize at Tiff, went to Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The runner ups were, perhaps surprisingly, Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya, as well as Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name. The win for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was slightly surprising, though the word out of Toronto has been incredibly positive. After taking a prize recently at the Venice Film Festival for Screenplay, it’s currently the most awarded contender of the year so far. If nothing else, that’s a nice head start for a movie such as this one. Looking specifically at the Audience Award and thinking in terms of its history, this is a somewhat reliable indicator of prestige. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri now joins a group that has five prior Best Picture winners,
