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.

Before then, Hulu viewers will get a chance to see another acclaimed docudrama, the film “Detroit” by Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”).

Amazon Prime will roll out new seasons for some of its original series in February, with the “The Tick: Season 1B” and the
So after doing a piece on the fantastic Frances McDormand, sticking with the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri connection, it seemed apt to do a piece on an actor who has always slipped just below the radar. Sam Rockwell is always great and he’s had his share of roles in critically acclaimed films. Not that Oscar recognition is the foremost watermark on an actors CV, but the fact that even a nomination at this point in his career has eluded him is more than a little harsh.
He’s had a prolific career with some great films (and not so great). Even in some of the less stellar efforts always feature a solid turn from Rockwell. Similarly, he’s had significant parts, maybe fourth/fifth billed in a film. It’s hard to get an Oscar nomination
“Charlie is a singular talent with a formidable artistic vision,” said Scott Stuber, head of original films at Netflix, which had a huge hit last month with “Bright.” “He has the rare ability to tell unique stories in a universal way. ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things’ is a chilling thriller and we can’t wait to share Charlie’s adaptation with audiences everywhere.”

On a road trip to meet his parents on their secluded farm, Jake’s girlfriend is thinking of ending things.

Sam Rockwell has been on the brink of serious awards attention for a while now. He came close to Oscar recognition with his tour-de-force performance in Duncan Jones’ “Moon,” but his work as a racist Missouri law enforcement officer in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is perhaps his best work to date, carved with complexity and grace. It might finally be hi ticket to the dance.

Rockwell has worked from a McDonagh script three times now, having previously starred in the director’s “Seven Psychopaths” and his play “A Behanding in Spokane.” He relishes the collaboration, particularly for McDonagh’s capabilities on the page.

After Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, and other actresses released statements, Jennifer Lawrence and George Clooney are also speaking out.
“I was deeply disturbed to hear the news about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior,” Lawrence told Et in a statement. “I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations. This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting.”
The 27-year-old actress -- who won an Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, which was distributed by The Weinstein Company -- went on to express her support for those accusing Weinstein of inappropriate behavior, saying, “My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions. And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward.”
