Ethan Hawke, Alessandro Nivola Team on Country Music Story ‘Satan Is Real’ (Exclusive)
Ethan Hawke and Alessandro Nivola are teaming up in “Satan Is Real,” the story of the Louvin brothers. The real-life best friends will portray Charlie and Ira Louvin, influential country musicians whose relationship is forged by love, hate, jealousy, and alcohol.

In an interview with Variety, Hawke and Nivola said they hoped to achieve a music term called “blood harmony” in their performances. It’s a term that describes the kind of harmonizing that can be achieved when family members sing together, because their genetic link allows them to share the same tone in their voice.

“It’s such an important expression to us,” said Hawke. “It sounds both violent and beautiful and the music should be that. It’s aggressive, it’s electric, it’s strange. It’s not Brooklyn folk rock. It’s not wannabe cool guy country. It’s hillbilly gospel music.”

The film will be directed by Phil Morrison,

Amy Adams and Michelle Williams got their first Oscar noms together, and now they could do the same at the Emmys

Amy Adams and Michelle Williams got their first Oscar noms together, and now they could do the same at the Emmys
Michelle Williams (“Fosse/Verdon”) and Amy Adams (“Sharp Objects”) are both Emmy contenders this year for Best Movie/Limited Series Actress. Despite their long careers on the big and small screens, this would be the first Emmy nomination for both. But this wouldn’t be the only time they celebrate a career-first together. They also received their very first Oscar nominations in the same category.

In 2005 Williams co-starred in “Brokeback Mountain” as Alma, whose husband (Heath Ledger) was secretly in love with another man (Jake Gyllenhaal). The same year Adams gave a breakthrough performance in “Junebug” as Ashley, a pregnant North Carolina woman with an unfailingly optimistic attitude. Both women earned Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actress for their roles, though they ended up losing to Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”).

Actors Who Haven’t Won an Oscar

Actors Who Haven’t Won an Oscar
After Olivia Colman upset the heavily favored Glenn Close to win the best actress Oscar on Sunday, Close became the new record-holder among actresses for most Oscar nominations without a win.

Colman gave a gracious acceptance speech, admitting she wished the veteran actress took home the big prize: “Glenn Close, you’ve been my idol for so long and this is not how I wanted it to be.”

Close now has seven nominations and no wins for “The Wife,” “Albert Nobbs,” “Fatal Attraction,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “The World According to Garp,” “The Big Chill,” and “The Natural.”

Close had been tied with the late Thelma Ritter and the late Deborah Kerr for most nominations without a win, with six. On Sunday, Amy Adams joined Ritter and Kerr for having six nominations without a win following her loss for “Vice.” She was previously nominated for “Junebug,” “Doubt,” “The Fighter,” “The Master,” and “American Hustle.

Amy Adams (‘Vice’) loses at Oscars for 6th time, tying Deborah Kerr and Thelma Ritter
It’s the Oscar record no one wants on their resume. With Amy Adams‘ loss at the 91st Academy Awards for “Vice,” she now ties Deborah Kerr and Thelma Ritter as the three actresses with six Oscar nominations and no wins. Unfortunately, Glenn Close tops them all with seven Oscar misfires; she lost on Sunday to Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”). Among male actors, Richard Burton (seven noms) and Peter O’Toole (eight bids) are the record-holders. Click through our photo gallery above for a closer look at Adams’ six Oscar nominations.

Oscar deja lose: Amy Adams would be 5th performer to be defeated by the same person twice

Oscar deja lose: Amy Adams would be 5th performer to be defeated by the same person twice
History repeats itself, and it could happen again in the Best Supporting Actress race. Thirteen years ago, Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”) won the category over Amy Adams (“Junebug”), and the two are currently in a rematch for “The Favourite” and “Vice,” respectively. If Weisz prevails again, Adams would have the dubious honor of being the fifth actor to lose to the same person twice.

The first four people were:

1. Irene Dunne lost Best Actress for “Theodora Goes Wild” (1936) and “The Awful Truth” (1937) to Luise Rainer for “The Great Ziegfeld” (1936) and “The Good Earth” (1937)

2. Charles Boyer lost Best Actor for “Conquest” (1937) and “Algiers” (1938) to Spencer Tracy for “Captains Courageous” (1937) and “Boys Town” (1938)

3. Basil Rathbone lost Best Supporting Actor for “Romeo and Juliet” (1936) and “If I Were King” (1938) to Walter Brennan for “Come and Get It” (1936) and “Kentucky” (1938)

4. Annette Bening lost Best Actress for “American Beauty” (1999) and “Being Julia” (2004) to Hilary Swank

BAFTA Awards predictions: Rachel Weisz will be crowned Best Supporting Actress

BAFTA Awards predictions: Rachel Weisz will be crowned Best Supporting Actress
Rachel Weisz is far and away the, uh, favorite to win Best Supporting Actress for “The Favourite” at Sunday’s BAFTA Awards. Per our latest predictions, Weisz has 16/5 odds to prevail and win her first career BAFTA.

Weisz was in a close race with No. 2 Amy Adams (“Vice”), but she pulled away after the Screen Actors Guild Awards following BAFTA and Oscar snubbee Emily Blunt‘s win for “A Quiet Place.” Weisz now has the support of all eight of our Experts, eight Editors and 17 of our Top 24 Users.

With Oscar frontrunner Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”) Mia from this race as well and “The Favourite”‘s strong nomination showing, it’s a prime opportunity for Weisz to snag a big win and emerge as the alternative to King. She’s already earned the British Independent Film Award and the London Film Critics Circle Award for her turn as Sarah Churchill.

Listen: Amy Adams Looks Back on Her Oscar-Nominated Work, From ‘Junebug’ to ‘Vice’
Playback is a Variety / iHeartRadio podcast bringing you conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films. New episodes air every Thursday.

Amy Adams landed her sixth nomination last week for her performance as Lynne Cheney in Adam McKay’s “Vice.” It’s quite the achievement just 14 years into her screen career, a career that essentially kicked off with Oscar recognition, for 2005’s “Junebug.” In “Vice,” she once again stars opposite Christian Bale, who is also along for the Oscar season ride (as is co-star Sam Rockwell). The film has been quite divisive however, with some critics adoring it, others deriding it. That passionate split is healthy, as Adams sees it.

Adams / Weisz + Oscar

by Murtada Elfadl

Weisz and Adams at their first Oscars as nominees

This year marks the second time Rachel Weisz & Amy Adams have been nominated together in the supporting actress category: Weisz for The Favourite, Adams for Vice. The first time they did so was for their first nominations, thirteen years ago for The Constant Gardener and Junebug respectively. They are linked together in my mind -and possibly for some of you - because of that. Adams’ performance in Junebug is my favorite of her nominated performances and I've always said that if she had won that year we wouldn’t be talking about overdue status for years on end.

Since that time their Oscar careers have diverged...

Regina King will cruise to a crucial Best Supporting Actress win at the Critics’ Choice Awards
Best Supporting Actress is Regina King‘s to lose at the Critics’ Choice Awards. The “If Beale Street Could Talk” star has a commanding 4/1 odds in our predictions to add another trophy to her collection on Sunday.

And what a collection it’s been so far. The season-long frontrunner, King has nearly swept the table on the critics circuit for her quietly powerful performance in the Barry Jenkins film and just won the Golden Globe. Seven Experts, five Editors and 21 of our Top 24 users foresee a Critics’ Choice victory for her.

2019 Oscars: Will Amy Adams finally win on nomination #6, just like Kate Winslet?

2019 Oscars: Will Amy Adams finally win on nomination #6, just like Kate Winslet?
A five-time Oscar bridesmaid is on the brink of a sixth nomination, and possibly her first win. She’s already scored double nominations at the Golden Globe and SAG Awards. It’s been thirteen years since she first caught the academy’s attention, breaking into the Supporting Actress lineup. She’s since proven herself to be a versatile talent and a box-office draw, headlining acclaimed indies and big blockbusters alike.

Is this Amy Adams this year? Or Kate Winslet exactly 10 years ago? The similarities between the two are shocking.

Let’s go back in time and review Winslet when she was still winless. After a heavenly debut in Peter Jackson’s “Heavenly Creatures” in 1994, she starred as Emma Thompson‘s younger sister in 1995’s “Sense and Sensibility.” The academy had the good sense to nominate the newcomer, though she wasn’t mighty enough to overcome Mira Sorvino in “Mighty Aphrodite.

Long before ‘Vice,’ Steve Carell gave Amy Adams, aka ‘Hot Girl,’ a tour of ‘The Office’ [Watch]

Long before ‘Vice,’ Steve Carell gave Amy Adams, aka ‘Hot Girl,’ a tour of ‘The Office’ [Watch]
“Vice” pairs Amy Adams and Christian Bale onscreen for the third time, but that’s not the only reunion the actress has in the film. The Dick Cheney biopic also reunites her with Steve Carell, with whom she first worked 13 years ago on “The Office.”

Dunderheads will definitely recall Adams as Katy, the episode’s titular “Hot Girl,” in the season finale of the six-episode first season, which aired in April 2005. A purse saleswoman, Katy stops by Dunder Mifflin to sell some of her merchandise and instantly finds herself being pursued by Michael (Carell) and Dwight (Rainn Wilson). Michael, who dubs Katy “Pam 6.0,” gives a reluctant Katy a tour of the office (watch above) and later offers to give her a ride home. Alas, much to his devastation, she gets a ride from Jim (John Krasinski).

Now that the Golden Globe nominations and Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations are out, we are one step closer to an Oscar rematch 13 years in the making: Amy Adams vs. Rachel Weisz. Back then, Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”) defeated Adams (“Junebug”) in the very category they’re contending in this year, Best Supporting Actress.

“Thank you so much to the academy for this tremendous, tremendous honor,” Weisz said in her speech, before thanking her co-star Ralph Fiennes, her director Fernando Meirelles and producer Simon Channing Williams. “And of course, John le Carré, who wrote this unflinching, angry story, and he really paid tribute to the people who are willing to risk their own lives to fight injustice. They’re greater men and women than I.”

Weisz, who was pregnant with her first child, nearly swept the season that year for her performance as Tessa Quayle, an Amnesty International activist who was murdered in Kenya,

Will Amy Adams, Emily Blunt or Emma Stone be the 3rd person to win 2 individual SAG Awards in a night?

Will Amy Adams, Emily Blunt or Emma Stone be the 3rd person to win 2 individual SAG Awards in a night?
Amy Adams, Emily Blunt and Emma Stone all got two individual Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations on Wednesday, but can any of them turn both their bids into wins?

Only two performers have taken home two individual SAG Awards in one night: Helen Mirren and Idris Elba. Mirren won lead actress en route to her Oscar victory for “The Queen” (2006) and was honored for playing another monarch in the miniseries “Elizabeth I,” for which she later won an Emmy. Elba received SAG Awards for his supporting turn in “Beasts of No Nation” (2015) and for limited series/TV movie actor for “Luther.” He remains the only SAG champ whose performance did not receive an Oscar nomination.

Adams (“Vice”), Blunt (“A Quiet Place”) and Stone (“The Favourite”) are up against each other in the film supporting actress race. They all got a windfall when critical favorite and Oscar frontrunner Regina King (“If

Film Review: ‘Weightless’

Film Review: ‘Weightless’
Alessandro Nivola looks like a conventionally handsome leading man, but has largely had the career of a character actor so far — something that may factor in his being relatively under-sung for an impressive screen résumé stretching back two decades now. That, and the fact that he’s often most effective as the quiet, watchful center around which more histrionic characters revolve (whether they know it or not) in indies such as “Junebug” and the recent “Disobedience.” They’re not the types of performances that typically attract awards, yet those films would lose much of their impact without the subtle gravitas he contributes.

Nivola is just about able to pull off the same trick as the central figure in “Weightless.” But Canadian music-video and commercials veteran Jaron Albertin’s U.S.-produced first feature proves unfortunately named — despite the emotional terra firma Nivola and other cast members try to provide, this
