Reba McEntire returned for the 15th time to host the show, the first major gathering of country stars in Las Vegas since the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival last October.

“I guess they finally figured out that it only takes one woman to do the job of two men,” McEntire said in her opener, acknowledging her return as solo host after Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley shared the duties last year.

She also made a nod to the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, noting the dearth of women nominated in major categories. “Have you seen the Entertainer of the Year category? Five men, no women,” she said.

2018 Acm Awards performers: Carrie Underwood will debut her new single during the telecast
Carrie Underwood is joining the list of performers who will take the stage at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards. Not only that, she’ll be debuting new material in the world television premiere of her upcoming single. You can watch her when the ceremony is broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night, April 15.

She previously won Female Vocalist three times (2007-2009), though Miranda Lambert has now won that award for the last eight years in a row (2010-2017).

Acm Awards 2018: Will Keith Urban finally win Entertainer of the Year on his 8th try?

Acm Awards 2018: Will Keith Urban finally win Entertainer of the Year on his 8th try?
The 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards race for Entertainer of the Year is almost too close to call based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users who are split between all five of the nominees. So in a divided field, could this be the opportunity Keith Urban needs to finally win? He’s nominated for the eighth time, but has yet to prevail.

Urban lost his first three noms to Kenny Chesney. Then he was defeated twice by Carrie Underwood (2009-2010) and once by Taylor Swift (2011). Most recently he was taken down by Jason Aldean (2017), who is now the two-time defending champ and a nominee again this year. In 2018 Urban also faces country legend and six-time Entertainer of the Year champ Garth Brooks, two-time winner Luke Bryan (2013, 2015) and this year’s most nominated artist, Chris Stapleton, who has eight total bids. So on paper it looks like an uphill battle for Urban,

Acm Awards 2018: Are Willie Nelson and the late Glen Campbell locks to win Vocal Event for ‘Funny How Time Slips Away’?

Acm Awards 2018: Are Willie Nelson and the late Glen Campbell locks to win Vocal Event for ‘Funny How Time Slips Away’?
Glen Campbell was awarded by the Academy of Country Music 11 times during his life, including the Career Achievement Award in 2016, one year before his death in 2017 after a battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Now he’s the front-runner to win one last Acm Award: Vocal Event of the Year for “Funny How Time Slips Away,” his collaboration with Willie Nelson.

“Funny” was written by Nelson in 1961. It was originally recorded by Billy Walker, but has been covered numerous times over the years by artists including Elvis Presley, Al Green and The Spinners. This Acm nominated version by Nelsopn and Campbell was featured on Cambpell’s 64th and final studio album, “Adios,” which was released in June 2017 just two months before he died. That November the Country Music Association Awards paid tribute to Campbell by awarding this song Musical Event of the Year, and now the ACMs appear likely to follow suit.

Joaquin Phoenix Says Playing The Joker Could Be “Interesting”

Last year, Academy Award-nominee Todd Phillips (Borat, Old School, The Hangover) officially signed on to direct Warner Bros.’ currently untitled Joker origin film. With Scott Silver (The Fighter) serving as co-writer alongside Phillips, illustrious director Martin Scorsese acting as co-producer, and Academy Award-winner Leonardo DiCaprio being eyed for the titular role, the project drew a considerable amount of attention on social media. Since August 2017, however, things have been eerily quiet.

Taking place in Gotham City during the 1980s, the film will not be part of the DC Extended Universe, which, judging by how that thing is careening off-course, is probably for the best. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like DiCaprio will be filling the clown’s shoes, worn previously by three Oscar winners, Heath Ledger, who won for his portrayal of the titular villain, Jared Leto and Jack Nicholson. On the bright side, though, the movie might get another A-lister to step into the role,

Trailer Watch: Tessa Thompson and Melissa Leo Hit the Road in Laurie Collyer’s “Furlough”

“For the next 36 hours I own you,” Tessa Thompson tells Melissa Leo in a new trailer for “Furlough.” The dramedy sees the “Thor: Ragnarok” actress playing a rookie inmate tasked with escorting a prisoner on a death bed visit.

“Don’t turn your back on the prisoner,” Nicole (Thompson) is warned. “Don’t let the prisoner out of your sight — and whatever she says, don’t believe her.” Known as a hell-raiser, Joan (Leo) isn’t going to make Nicole’s job easy. With only six months left of her sentence, we see her trying to make an escape from Nicole once they are on the road— but the guard’s taser foils the inmate’s getaway.

On the surface, the two share little in common, but it’s not long before they forge a connection. “One thing I learned in this world — [you] gotta help yourself because no one else will,

‘Furlough’ Trailer: Tessa Thompson, Melissa Leo, Whoopi Goldberg Star In Prison Inmate Dramedy

Tessa Thompson and Melissa Leo are two actors we will watch in just about anything. While Thompson is a rising star in Hollywood, with major roles in “Creed” and “Thor: Ragnarok,” Melissa Leo is an Academy Award-winning actress and acting chameleon, turning in great performance, after great performance in films like “Frozen River,” “The Fighter,” and “Prisoners.” Now, these two women are starring in the new dramedy “Furlough,” and if the first trailer is any indication, it looks to be a funny film that will tug at the heartstrings.

‘The Dark Knight’ still ‘Rises’ at the Oscars: Gary Oldman is 6th Oscar winner from the cast – will Tom Hardy get a turn?

‘The Dark Knight’ still ‘Rises’ at the Oscars: Gary Oldman is 6th Oscar winner from the cast – will Tom Hardy get a turn?
The Dark Knight Rises” (2012) was the only film in Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy not to receive a single Oscar nomination but despite that it has had a pretty good track record at the awards. By the time of its release four of its actors already had Oscars: Christian Bale (“The Fighter”), Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) and Michael Caine (“Hannah and Her Sisters” and “The Cider House Rules”). Then Anne Hathaway won an Oscar for “Les Miserables,” which opened the same year. This year’s Oscars turned out to be pretty good for “The Dark Knight Rises” too, especially for Gary Oldman, the erstwhile Commissioner Gordon who just won Best Actor for “Darkest Hour.” Check out the complete list of Oscar winners here.

Oldman won for his performance as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. It was only the second nomination for the veteran actor,

2018 Oscars: McDormand, Oldman, Janney and Rockwell are the first group of acting winners to sweep all the major awards

2018 Oscars: McDormand, Oldman, Janney and Rockwell are the first group of acting winners to sweep all the major awards
Break out the brooms because Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) and Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards”) just completed the first acting sweep. With their Oscar triumphs on Sunday, they became the first foursome to win all five major televised awards in the same season: the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, SAG, BAFTA and Oscar.

Since the BAFTA became an Oscar precursor 17 years ago, no quartet of Oscar winners had run the table of all 20 awards until now. While there have been years of one or multiple individual sweepers, one person was always derailed, whether by a snub, an upset or eligibility issues. Three years ago, Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”), J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”) and Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) won 19 of the 20, with Michael Keaton (“Birdman”) crashing the party by beating Redmayne at Critics’ Choice.

True story: Gary Oldman’s and Allison Janney’s wins would resume Oscar’s love affair with real-life portrayals

True story: Gary Oldman’s and Allison Janney’s wins would resume Oscar’s love affair with real-life portrayals
Last year marked the first time in 19 years that the four acting Oscar winners — Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”), Emma Stone (“La La Land”), Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight”) and Viola Davis (“Fences”) — played fake people. But the reprieve will be short-lived since Best Actor frontrunner Gary Oldman, as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and Best Supporting Actress favorite Allison Janney, as Tonya Harding’s mother Lavona in “I, Tonya,” have pretty much ensured the academy will start a new streak of Oscar-winning real-life portrayals.

Oscar’s obsession with famous people playing famous people is a relatively new phenomenon though. While actors have taken home the gold for playing real people since Oscar’s beginning — George Arliss winning Best Actor for playing British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli in “Disraeli” (1929/30) was the first — up until 2000, there were many long stretches of faux characters triumphing. In the ‘70s, there were no Best Supporting
