A big Oscar question answered: Brad Pitt is campaigning as supporting for ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ — for now

A big Oscar question answered: Brad Pitt is campaigning as supporting for ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ — for now
To both lead or to have only one lead, that is the big Oscar question for one pair of male co-stars, still firmly perched at the top of their games, as Gold Derby launches its Academy Award prediction site today. The ultimate answer is below — but first some background.

Once upon a time in Hollywood, male co-leads in a film were allowed to go mano-to-mano and duke it out in the same Oscar category. The first instance of this situation was when cast mates Clark Gable, Charles Laughton and Franchot Tone went up against each other in 1935’s “Mutiny on the Bounty.” In that case, there was no other choice since supporting acting categories weren’t added to the ballot until 1937. Alas, all three stars were bested by Victor McLaglen in “The Informer.”

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Director (Updated August 6)

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Director (Updated August 6)
One of the big questions about the 2020 Oscars is whether or not there will be a split between the winners of Best Picture and Best Director, as we’ve seen in three of the last four years. Before the academy reintroduced the preferential ballot for Best Picture in 2010, such divides were fairly rare. Now, they are the rule rather than the exception at the Academy Awards. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Director.)

Why is this?

Unlike every other Oscar category, which are decided by a popular vote, the winner of the Best Picture award is determined by a weighted ballot. Voters rank their choices from first to last. If one nominee garners more than 50% of the first place vote, it automatically wins. If, however, no nominee can meet that threshold, the film with the fewest first place votes gets eliminated, with its ballot getting reapportioned to the second place choice.

New UK Trailer for 'The Informer' Starring Joel Kinnaman Undercover

"I'm just trying to get home..." Warner Bros UK has unveiled a new, shorter 60-second trailer for the crime thriller The Informer, formerly known as Three Seconds. This was originally set for release in March (we ran a trailer last year) but then it got pushed back until August this summer, and is now being prepped for release soon.

‘The Informer’ Trailer: Joel Kinnaman Is A Snitch Caught In The Crossfire Of The Mob & The FBI
Italian filmmaker Andrea Di Stefano made his directorial debut four years ago at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival with his historical crime drama “Escobar: Paradise Lost.” While boasting a relatively strong cast, led by Benicio Del Toro and Josh Hutcherson, the film opened to disappointingly tepid reviews from critics and audience alike – save some relatively high praise for Del Toro’s performance.

Ana de Armas and Matteo Garrone on How New Short Film Bridges Cultures and Celebrations (Exclusive)
Ana de Armas says she’s still trying to find the right words to describe her latest project, a cinematic collaboration with Italian liqueur brand Campari that has catapulted the Cuban-born actress into a conversation about diversity, creativity, and taking risks.

“I don’t think I can even describe the feeling,” De Armas says of becoming the first Latin American-born ambassador to star in Campari’s “Red Diaries” series of short films. “It’s amazing to have even been in the conversation, when they had the whole world to choose from, and I feel honored, humbled, and emotional, because I know what it represents.”

As announced this week, the “Blade Runner 2049” actress is the face of “Entering Red,” a short film helmed by Cannes prize-winning director Matteo Garrone. Set in the streets of Milan, the birthplace of Campari, the 12-minute film follows de Armas’ eponymous character as she explores

John Ford movies: 20 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Searchers,’ ‘The Quiet Man,’ ‘The Grapes of Wrath’
John Ford would’ve celebrated his 125th birthday on February 1, 2019. The four-time Oscar-winning director made over 140 films in his long career, spanning the silent era through the 1960s. Yet how many of those titles are classics? In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 20 of Ford’s greatest movies, ranked worst to best.

To this day, Ford holds the all-time Oscar record for Best Director victories with four: “The Informer” (1935), “The Grapes of Wrath” (1940), “How Green Was My Valley” (1941), and “The Quiet Man” (1952). Of those, only “How Green Was My Valley” also won Best Picture (Ford also competed as a producer on “The Quiet Man.”).

Clark Gable movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Gone with the Wind,’ ‘It Happened One Night’
Clark Gable would’ve celebrated his 118th birthday on February 1, 2019.

In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 12 of Gable’s greatest movies, ranked worst to best.

After appearing in bit parts in a number of films, Gable shot to stardom with his performance in “A Free Soul” (1931) as a gangster who bewitches a young woman (Norma Shearer) whose attorney father (Lionel Barrymore) helped him beat a murder rap. From there forward, the actor’s persona as a raffish leading man who’s every guy’s best friend and every gal’s dream became cemented in a number of subsequent roles.

  • Variety
Universal Pictures is moving Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller “Us” back a week to March 22 to build more buzz following its selection as the opening title of the South by Southwest Film Festival.

“Us,” which follows a family confronted by a group of doppelgängers, stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Elisabeth Moss. Nyong’o and Duke play a couple who are taking their children to their beach house along the Northern California coastline.
