Emma Stone seeking to be 7th woman to win lead and supporting Oscars
Emma Stone took home her first Oscar just two seasons ago, for Best Actress for “La La Land” (2016), and she might soon find herself not only with a bookend statuette but in a very exclusive group. Back in the running with a supporting campaign for “The Favourite,” Stone could become the seventh woman to win in lead and supporting.

The first six to accomplish this are:

1. Helen Hayes, Best Actress for “The Sin of Madelon Claudet” (1931/32) and Best Supporting Actress for “Airport” (1970)

2. Ingrid Bergman, Best Actress for “Gaslight” (1944) and “Anastasia” (1956), and Best Supporting Actress for “Murder on the Orient Express” (1974)

3. Maggie Smith, Best Actress for “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” (1969) and Best Supporting Actress for “California Suite” (1978)

4. Meryl Streep, Best Supporting Actress for “Kramer vs. Kramer” (1979), and Best Actress for “Sophie’s Choice” (1982) and “The Iron Lady” (2011)

Tom O’Neil explains why Mahershala Ali is suddenly the new Oscar frontrunner

Tom O’Neil explains why Mahershala Ali is suddenly the new Oscar frontrunner
Over the past 10 days, Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”) has not only jumped ahead of Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”) in the Oscar race for Best Supporting Actor, but Ali seems to have established a firm lead among the Experts making predictions at Gold Derby. Fifteen out of 25 Experts pick Ali; 6 predict Chalamet will prevail.

See the Experts’ latest rankings per category and racetrack odds in the 15 top races.

Up until recently, Chalamet consistently held a modest lead in this race. On Oct. 19, for example, 10 Experts picked him to win, 8 backed Ali. Chalamet seemed like the obvious fave because, well, for starters, a lot of people think he should’ve won Best Actor two years ago for his breakout performance in “Call Me By Your Name.” Now he’s got an even flashier part in “Beautiful Boy”: the kind of big, wigged-out, bug-eyed, high-kicking, grandstanding role that academy voters often adore.

Killers of the Flower Moon Officially Reunites Scorsese and DiCaprio

Killers of the Flower Moon Officially Reunites Scorsese and DiCaprio
It's official: Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will reunite once again for Killers of the Flower Moon. There have been many great director/actor combinations over the years, but Scorsese and DiCaprio have done a solid job of making a case that they're one of the, if not the single greatest combo in cinema history. They're set to add to their collaborative library with an adaptation of David Grann's best-selling novel.

The pair has been at least loosely attached to the project since the rights to the book were acquired by Imperative Entertainment in 2016. Now, it's been made official as Martin Scorsese will direct Killers of the Flower Moon, with Leonardo DiCaprio set to star. Production is scheduled to begin in summer 2019, assuming all goes according to plan. Scorsese had this to say about the project in a statement.

Production is set to kick off in summer 2019. The film is written by Eric Roth, an Oscar winner for “Forrest Gump.”

Killers of the Flower Moon” is based on The New York Times best-selling book by David Grann. The story is set in 1920s Oklahoma and centers around the Osage Nation murders, in which members of the Native American tribe were murdered one by one after the group became rich off the oil found underneath their land. The murders attracted the attention of the newly created FBI, who set out to investigate the crimes.

Established in 2011 by actor/humanitarian Gary Sinise, the Foundation is devoted to serving our nations defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.

Blumhouse's Thriller Trailer Turns a Childhood Prank Into a Nightmare

Blumhouse's Thriller Trailer Turns a Childhood Prank Into a Nightmare
Blumhouse is going all in on its winning barebones production formula with the cheap-looking Thriller, which makes it extra scary by default. Its loose production values add a certain aura to this haunting tale that you would never get with a big budget horror project. Oh, and we should mention, since it's returning to theaters today, this has nothing to do with Michael Jackson's Thriller, which is playing in 3D alongside The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

Thriller is the latest low budget creeper from Blumhouse, who are gearing up to release the much more high profile Halloween sequel in theaters next month. Dallas Jackson directs Thriller, which tells of a childhood prank gone horribly wrong. You get to see that prank happen here, and the outcome will definitely turn your stomach. The dollar store production aesthetic adds a sense of realism that comes across like a snuff film.

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Posts Crazy Phenomenal Hold Of -6%; Melissa McCarthy’s ‘Happytime Murders’ $10M Doa: Sunday Final

  • Deadline
Sunday Am Final: For previous Friday/Saturday update, click here. Warner Bros.’ Crazy Rich Asians drew a second weekend of $25M, down an awesome, unexpected, and uncommon 6%.

This is truly an unprecedented weekend hold for a summer movie, especially in recent years. Typically you see this type of weekend hold between a Christmas and New Year’s weekend, but you have to go back to movies like Forrest Gump (-1.5%) or The Sixth Sense (-3%).

Even more amazing, the Crazy Rich Asians second Saturday of $10.3M was the same amount that the pic made the previous Saturday, per Warner Bros.

It’s the third consecutive weekend that Warner Bros. has owned the top spot at the box office, but it’s the second weekend in row that they’ve ruled the top two spots, thanks to their China Gravity co-prod shark, The Meg, which earned $13M in its third outing,

As Aspect Reaches 40, It Retools for the New Media Age

  • Variety
Creative agency Aspect’s Throwback Thursday Facebook postings of its past work offer a fascinating historical document. They not only showcase highlights from the company’s 40 years in the movie-trailer business such as “Men in Black,” “Misery” and “Wayne’s World,” they’re also a reminder of how much the medium has changed since the days when the sonorous and instantly recognizable voice of narrator Don Lafontaine graced thousands of trailers, promos and ads.

Then and now, Aspect reigns as one of the top trailer houses in Hollywood. Back in the old days, it had a reputation as the go-to place for comedies. But, today, it prides itself on its ability to work on projects of any genre, from “Ready Player One,” “Hell Fest” and HBO’s “Westworld” to “Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again,” as well as every platform, from the big screen to smartphones.

Can ‘Black Panther’ do what ‘The Dark Knight’ couldn’t at the Oscars?

Can ‘Black Panther’ do what ‘The Dark Knight’ couldn’t at the Oscars?
Many a Batman fan in 2008 was rooting for “The Dark Knight,” Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed second round with the Caped Crusader and the year’s top-grossing movie, to secure a berth in the best-picture race at that year’s Oscars. They weren’t the only ones. The previous year’s edition of Hollywood’s glitziest night drew only 32.9 million viewers – an all-time low. Alas, it was not to be.

The Academy, however, did alter the rules the following year to increase the probability that a well-regarded blockbuster had a chance to make the cut by expanding the Best Picture category to 10 titles – later amended to between five and 10 films. As a result, there has been a boost for sci-fi and action competitors. But since 2002, when the original “Spider-Man” kicked off the ongoing run of Marvel superhero franchises, no comic-book adventure has made the cut.
