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

Amy Adams, Regina King each expected to go 1-1 in their double Golden Globes face-off

Amy Adams, Regina King each expected to go 1-1 in their double Golden Globes face-off
Amy Adams and Regina King will be Golden Globe winners and losers next month. The double nominees are up against each other in the same two categories — Best Film Supporting Actress and Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actress — and our early predictions are forecasting one win for each of them.

King has a commanding lead in the film race for “If Beale Street Could Talk,” boasting 16/5 odds to 39/10 for Adams, who’s nominated for “Vice” and is in second. The critical darling, King has practically swept the critics circuit so far, including victories at the New York Film Critics Circle and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, and has been the “representative win” for “Beale Street.” She’s also fresh off her third Emmy triumph in four years, for “Seven Seconds.”

Double Golden Globes duel: Amy Adams or Regina King could be 5th performer to win twice in one night

Double Golden Globes duel: Amy Adams or Regina King could be 5th performer to win twice in one night
Amy Adams and Regina King will have a double showdown at the Golden Globe Awards. The stars are nominated in two categories, Best Film Supporting Actress and Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor. If either goes 2-for-2, she’d be the fifth performer to win two Globes in one night.

Adams’ and King’s bids for “Vice” and “If Beale Street Could Talk” on the film side were widely expected; they were 1-2 in our predictions and are in the same positions in our combined Oscar odds. But their duel on the TV side was a little less secure. Adams was in the No. 1 spot all season for her HBO limited series “Sharp Objects,” while King was in the precarious fifth spot for Netflix’s “Seven Seconds.”

However, King is coming off her third Emmy win in four years, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had only nominated her once during that span,

Composer Alexandre Desplat on his score for ‘Isle of Dogs’: Other than the taiko drums, we avoided Japanese influences [Exclusive Video Interview]

Composer Alexandre Desplat on his score for ‘Isle of Dogs’: Other than the taiko drums, we avoided Japanese influences [Exclusive Video Interview]
Visually, the animated movie “Isle of Dogs” relies heavily on Japanese influences, but Alexandre Desplat had a very different idea when it came to film’s score. “What we decided on this one was to avoid, aside from the taiko drums, there’s no other folkloric instruments,” he tells us in a recent chat (watch the video above). He elaborates on the power that the taikos provide, saying they “are strong enough and they have such a range of sounds, frequency and dynamic that it can do a lot.” Desplat surrounded the taiko drums with instruments such as saxophones, recorders, French horns and the double bass in order to keep the rest of the score in our own contemporary world. “Even though it’s set in Japan, it keeps the world of music in our own.”

Welcome to this weeks Smackdown Live review, right here on Nerdly. Here’s hoping its more of a success that Monday’s Raw – which shouldn’t be that hard right? Right?

Match #1: Charlotte Flair def. Billie Kay The following is courtesy of WWE.com:

With her request of a match being granted, Charlotte Flair was not in the business of messing around as she took on Billie Kay in one-on-one action. Despite Peyton Royce getting involved from the outside and giving Billie the advantage, Charlotte Flair totally overpowered Kay, making relatively quick work of The IIconic and defeating her decisively with Natural Selection. That wouldn’t be enough for The Queen, though. After the win, Charlotte grabbed the microphone and said she wanted Peyton Royce in a match … oh, and she wanted it now.

2019 Oscars: 5 reasons why Rami Malek can win Best Actor for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

2019 Oscars: 5 reasons why Rami Malek can win Best Actor for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
I know what you’re thinking. Is this a real prediction? Or is it just fantasy? Before you assume that I’m caught in a landslide (with no escape from reality), please open your eyes and look up to the skies and see … Here are five reasons why Rami Malek can win the Oscar for “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

1. He plays a real person And is physically transformed onscreen.

It’s awardsology 101. The combination of portraying an actual individual plus altering one’s outward appearance is the easiest way to ensnare the academy’s attention. In the past twenty years alone, a plethora of people have won lead statuettes for doing exactly just that.

Look at Hilary Swank in “Boys Don’t Cry,” Adrien Brody in “The Pianist,” Nicole Kidman in “The Hours,” Charlize Theron in “Monster,” Jamie Foxx in “Ray,” Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Capote,” Reese Witherspoon in “Walk the Line,

Michael Sheen Joins ‘The Good Fight’ Cast For Season 3 As Roy Cohn-Like Lawyer

Michael Sheen Joins ‘The Good Fight’ Cast For Season 3 As Roy Cohn-Like Lawyer
Masters Of Sex alum Michael Sheen has been tapped to star opposite Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo and Rose Leslie on the upcoming third season of the CBS All Access legal drama series The Good Fight, set to premiere in early 2019.

In a one-year deal, he will play Roland Blum, a brilliant, charismatic and Machiavellian lawyer. He is a man of appetites – drugs, sex, you name it – who’s far more interested in winning than the niceties of following the law.

Sheen also joins The Good Fight series regulars Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi and Delroy Lindo.

In Season 3, the resistance does. Diane Lockhart (Baranski) tries to figure out whether you can resist a crazy administration without going crazy yourself, while Adrian Boseman (Lindo) and Liz Reddick-Lawrence (McDonald) struggle with a new post-factual world where the lawyer who tells the best story triumphs over the lawyer with the best facts.

Regina King (‘Beale Street’ & ‘Seven Seconds’) could join elite club of actors to win 2 Golden Globes in 1 night
Fresh off her Emmy win for “Seven Seconds” as grieving mother Latrice Butler, Regina King finds herself in the enviable position of earning Oscar buzz for her performance in “If Beale Street Could Talk.” Both performances will be eligible at the upcoming Golden Globes where she could very well become just the fifth actor in Golden Globes history to win two awards in one night. The actress has only been nominated once at the Golden Globes before, and considering how much the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) loves rewarding “new” people every year, she’s in a good position to win at least one by the end of the night.

Does Box Office Matter to Best Actress Hopefuls?

by Nathaniel R

Helen Mirren's The Queen was in many ways a completely standard win... a solid success before the nomination and an even bigger hit afterwardsDoes Box Office matter to Oscars? It does and it doesn't. And how much it matters varies from year to year and from category to category. It obviously matters, regardless, if you're either a flop or a big hit but anything inbetween (where most movies fall) is up for speculative debate.

For instance, just this year people have debated whether The Wife's box office take is strong enough for a Best Actress nomination for Glenn Glose (hint: it totally is... though winning will be harder) and whether it will matter that Roma won't really have that much of a theatrical presence (it might. it might not. The streaming only/mostly thing is relatively uncharted territory) or if the major success of A Star is Born

Helen Mirren movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Queen,’ ‘Gosford Park,’ ‘Red’

Helen Mirren movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Queen,’ ‘Gosford Park,’ ‘Red’
It’s not uncommon for a prominent British actor to be labeled British acting royalty. All types, from Laurence Olivier to Maggie Smith, have worn the label but nobody perhaps has literally worn that title recently to the extent as Helen Mirren. She has had a long varied career and has earned her place as one of the holders of acting’s triple crowns by playing a variety of British monarchs.

Her Oscar came for playing the British Queen Elizabeth II in “The Queen,” which dealt with her reaction to the unexpected death of Princess Diana. She would revisit the role nine years later for a Tony on Broadway in the play “The Audience,” which dealt with Elizabeth’s relationships with the various prime ministers who have served under her. It was a different Queen, Elizabeth I, that would bring Mirren one of her four Emmys, when she starred in

Review: 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Doesn't Care For Real Life, Just Fantasy

During an interview in 2010, Queen guitarist Brian May announced that a film about the legendary British rock band was in the works. Sacha Baron Cohen was set to play Freddie Mercury, with Peter Morgan (The Queen and Frost/Nixon), writing the screenplay. In 2013, however, Cohen left the project due to creative differences. Shortly thereafter, it was announced that director Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) would helm the biopic with Ben Wishaw as Mercury. That fell apart, too. Then in 2015, writer Anthony McCarten signed on to the seemingly doomed project. The film was soon fast-tracked by 20th Century Fox, with director Bryan Singer and actor Rami Malek set to play Freddie. And now Bohemian Rhapsody, a paint-by-numbers biopic that feels less like a definitive telling of Queen's rise to fame and more like Oscar Bait Mamma Mia!™. Book-ended by the band's iconic performance at 1985's Live Aid, the film begins in

Sacha Baron Cohen’s R-Rated Freddie Mercury Movie Would’ve Been ‘Outrageous in Terms of His Homosexuality’

Sacha Baron Cohen’s R-Rated Freddie Mercury Movie Would’ve Been ‘Outrageous in Terms of His Homosexuality’
Bohemian Rhapsody” opens in theaters nationwide November 2 with “Mr. Robot” Emmy winner Rami Malek starring as Queen frontman and rock legend Freddie Mercury, but nearly a decade ago it was “Borat” comedian Sacha Baron Cohen who was planning to step into the role for a Mercury biopic. Cohen’s movie started as an idea from “The Crown” creator Peter Morgan, who began working on a script in 2010 about Queen and the buildup to the band’s legendary Live Aid performance.

The project ultimately attracted “The Queen” director Stephen Frears, who recently looked back at the unmade project during an interview with Vulture. Cohen first courted the likes of “The King’s Speech” director Tom Hooper and David Fincher to direct the film before Frears landed the job. The director said Cohen’s vision for the film was explicit and true to Mercury’s spirit.

Ang Lee For Angelina's "Cleopatra" ?

  • SneakPeek
Oscar-winning director Ang Lee would like to direct Angelina Jolie as the historical Egyptian queen 'Cleopatra'.

Producer Scott Rudin ("The Queen"), who purchased screen rights to the biography, "Queen Of The Nile, Cleopatra: A Life", by author Stacy Schiff, confirmed the project was "being developed for and with Jolie".

Actress Elizabeth Taylor previously played "Cleopatra" in the 1963 feature of the same name.

The historical 'Cleopatra VII Philopator' was the last person to rule Egypt as an Egyptian pharaoh. After she died, Egypt became a Roman province.

"...her palace shimmered with onyx and gold but was richer still in political and sexual intrigue. Above all else, 'Cleopatra' was a shrewd strategist and an ingenious negotiator. She had children by both 'Julius Caesar' and 'Mark Antony', two of the most prominent Romans of the day. With Antony she would attempt to forge a new empire, in an alliance that ultimately doomed both of them.
