Atonement and Darkest Hour director Joe Wright has found himself a new project, with Variety reporting that he will helm an adaptation of A.J. Finn’s bestselling novel The Woman in the Window.

Where do the most recent group of Academy Award winners rank all time?

As we begin to fully focus on 2018 releases and eventually what the 2019 awards season will be like, a little more about the most recent Oscars is still required. Mainly, a look at how the winners stack up with previous ones. This time around, I’m tying in all of the major categories together. Yes, all eight of the top prizes will get a rundown today, with the possibility of another piece next week on the technical categories. For now, it’s Picture, Director, the four Acting slots, and both Screenplay categories, which is more than enough to start with. This is going to be fun. Like I mentioned above, before we get to Best Picture, which is clearly the big one, quickly I’d like to run down some of the other categories and how they stack up. That way, it’s more of a broader collection. Obviously, we know

‘Fast Color’ Review: Another Empowering Black Superhero Movie, But Don’t Expect ‘Black Panther’ — SXSW 2018

‘Fast Color’ Review: Another Empowering Black Superhero Movie, But Don’t Expect ‘Black Panther’ — SXSW 2018
The catchy spin on “Fast Color” is that it’s another black superhero movie, and a woman is the hero. Entering circulation just days after “Black Panther” crossed $1 billion at the box office. However, “Fast Color” is something far stranger and subtler than the McU, providing an allegorical story about generations of black women who are forced to suppress their strengths, and the mounting courage they find in finally taking charge.

The second feature from director Julia Hart (“Miss Stevens”) has a solemn, hypnotic quality, hovering between the profound ramifications of its intimate story and the hints of an otherworldly drama. Co-written with her husband and producer Jordan Horowitz, the movie presents a fresh variation on the superhero story, a near-future setting that may as well take place in the same dystopian landscape where “Logan” found its own wayward mutant hiding from the world. However, while the Wolverine gave up on his responsibilities long ago,

The writing-directing duo of Joel and Ethan Coen have surpassed themselves time and again with Academy Award-winning films like Fargo and No Country for Old Men (the latter of which we revisited in a 10th-anniversary feature last October).

Blade Runner 2049 Dp Roger Deakins Breaks Long Oscar Losing Streak

Blade Runner 2049 Dp Roger Deakins Breaks Long Oscar Losing Streak
Legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins has finally won a sorely-deserved Oscar for his work on Blade Runner 2049. Deakins has been one of the most respected talents working in the industry for a very long time now and has helped bring some of the greatest movies of the last few decades to life. At the 2018 Oscars, he finally won after having been nominated 13 times previously. 14th time's a charm, apparently.

Roger Deakins was seen as the favorite at this year's Oscars for his stunning work on Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited to sequel to Ridley Scott's original 1982 sci-fi classic. The movie may have been a bit of a financial flop, but it was critically beloved and a true visual achievement, which was in no small part thanks to Deakins' work. Blade Runner 2049 also walked away with the Best Visual Effects Oscar last night. Here's what Deakins had to say in his acceptance speech,

Vanity Fair Party: Joel Coen Guards Frances McDormand’s Oscar, Tom Holland and Zendaya Stick Together

Vanity Fair Party: Joel Coen Guards Frances McDormand’s Oscar, Tom Holland and Zendaya Stick Together
Frances McDormand’s Oscar may have been temporarily stolen, but it had returned to its rightful owner by the time she arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday night. Of course, Hollywood royalty like McDormand doesn’t need to carry her own statuette. As she made her way through the star-studded crowd at around midnight, greeting the likes of Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer, she had a babysitter for her new prize. His name was Joel Coen.

Coen, who has his own shelf of Oscars at home for “No Country for Old Men” and “Fargo,” seemed to be the right person for this task. He firmly clutched his wife’s Academy Award for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” occasionally allowing others to glimpse at it or cradle it, but certainly not to run away with it. Two onlookers who were particularly impressed by the glimmering object were “Spider-Man: Homecoming

‘The Shape of Water’ was the 1st December release to win Best Picture Oscar since ‘Million Dollar Baby’ (2004)

‘The Shape of Water’ was the 1st December release to win Best Picture Oscar since ‘Million Dollar Baby’ (2004)
The Shape of Water” was an unconventional Oscars choice for Best Picture in many ways: the amphibian romance, the fantasy elements, the female-centered story. And it was the first film since “Braveheart” (1995) to win without a corresponding SAG Award nomination for its ensemble. So it might have gotten lost in the shuffle that the film bucked another significant trend: it opened on December 1, which makes it the first December release to win Best Picture since “Million Dollar Baby” (2004).

The conventional wisdom is that it’s advantageous to release films late in the year to make a strong last impression on Oscar voters, and that still tends to be true. It’s relatively rare to see top Best Picture contenders released before September. But there’s a limit to how late an impression you want to make. Starting with the 2004 ceremony honoring the best films of 2003, the Oscars telecast moved up

Oscars TV Ratings Near All-Time Low After Four Years of Decline

And the winner is ... not the Academy Awards broadcast. The TV ratings for the 90th Oscars shows that a lot of people are just not interested in watching the awards in the same numbers they used to. This year's show was down 15% from last year's rating, following a steady 4-year decline. But more than that, those low numbers are inching towards being an all-time low for the ceremony. The previous winner of that dubious distinction was in 2008, which was hosted by Jon Stewart, and where No Country for Old Men won Best Picture. In …

2018 Oscars explained: How I knew ‘The Shape of Water’ would beat ‘Three Billboards’ for Best Picture

2018 Oscars explained: How I knew ‘The Shape of Water’ would beat ‘Three Billboards’ for Best Picture
2018 was one of the closest Best Picture races in recent Oscar history as “Lady Bird,” “Get Out,” “Dunkirk,” “The Shape of Water,” “The Post,” “Call Me by Your Name” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” all jockeyed for position over the many months of the season. At best our nearly 7,000 users who made their predictions were able to narrow down the race to three films: “Get Out,” “Shape” and “Three Billboards,” with “Three Billboards” pulling ahead in the week leading up to Oscars. But I stubbornly stuck with “Shape of Water” even though it had as much going against it as it had going for it. It ended up winning Best Picture. Here’s why:

1. “Three Billboards” was divisive — In a plurality vote, when the voters pick just one winner, it doesn’t matter how many people dislike your film as long as enough people love it. But since 2009 the

Oscars: 7 Quick Takeaways From the 90th Academy Awards

Oscars: 7 Quick Takeaways From the 90th Academy Awards
As celebrities file into party spaces across Los Angeles, the 90th Oscars are finally a memory. “The Shape of Water” walked away with top honors and three Oscars besides. “Dunkirk” came in behind with three itself, while “Blade Runner 2049,” “Coco,” “Darkest Hour,” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” each claimed a pair. With the dust barely settling, here are a few instant takeaways from the evening.

Science-fiction, finally

Maybe it leans more fantasy for some, but “The Shape of Water” gets an interesting designation: The first-ever science-fiction film to win best picture. It wasn’t Stanley Kubrick, nor Ridley Scott — it was Guillermo del Toro. Count it as yet another glass ceiling broken in 2017. Genre bias appears to be melting away more and more in the modern Oscars era (post-2008). Now, finally, a major victor for the form.

Always look to Frances McDormand for your Oscars moment

Did the 2008 Oscars get it right?

Simon Brew Mar 2, 2018

2008 saw No Country For Old Men, Tilda Swinton and The Golden Compass take home Oscar gold...

Films have a habit of being judged twice at the very least. There’s the instant reaction, through box office and awards season. Then there’s the more circumspect view, as a film has dropped out of the original limelight it bathed in.
