Here Are 59 Actors Who Landed Oscar Nominations For Portraying Characters With Disabilities

Here Are 59 Actors Who Landed Oscar Nominations For Portraying Characters With Disabilities
Triumph over adversity is drama defined, and Oscar nominations often go to actors whose characters find victory over physical or mental afflictions. The earliest example goes back to 1947; that was the year that non-pro Harold Russell won Best Supporting Actor and a special award for “The Best Years of Our Lives.” Russell was a WWII veteran who lost both of his hands while making a training film. Of note: Of the 59, 27 of these nominations went on to a win. This year’s roster of stars playing afflicted characters includes Jake Gyllenhaal as bombing victim Jeff Baumer in “Stronger,” Andrew Garfield as polio survivor Robin Cavendish in “Breathe,” Bryan Cranston as a millionaire quadriplegic in “The Upside,” and Sally Hawkins in two roles, as an arthritic painter in “Maudie” and a mute lab worker in “The Shape of Water.”

Check out Oscar’s rather astonishing legacy of afflicted contenders below.

Moana Wins Box Office Weekend #2 with $28.3M

Moana Wins Box Office Weekend #2 with $28.3M
The weekend after the Thanksgiving holiday is traditionally one of the weakest frames of the year, where holdovers almost always reign supreme over new releases. This year, only one new movie was released, the horror-thriller Incarnate, but, as expected, last weekend's winner Moana had no trouble repeating atop the box office, taking in $28.3 million. Incarnate barely cracked the top 10, opening in ninth place with $2.6 million, continuing a tradition of new releases failing to win this weekend.

Since box office stats became official in 1982, a new release has only took the top spot three times. The first time it happened was in 1988, with the release of The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!, which won with $9.3 million. In 1991, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country became the second new release to conquer this weekend with $18.1 million, with The Last Samurai becoming the last new release to do so in

Will Moana Conquer Its Second Weekend at the Box Office?

Will Moana Conquer Its Second Weekend at the Box Office?
Disney's animated adventure Moana had no trouble taking down three fellow newcomers over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend at the box office, bringing in $56.3 million over the three-day weekend and $82 million over the five-day extended weekend. Starting this Friday, it will only have one newcomer to face, Blumhouse's horror-thriller Incarnate, which is expected to debut in less than half the theaters Moana is playing in. With that being said, Moana should have no trouble repeating atop the box office with a projected $27.3 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Incarnate will open in approximately 1,500 theaters, a far cry from the 3,875 theaters that Moana opened in over the holiday weekend. The weekend after Thanksgiving is traditionally a weak one at the box office, with holdovers from earlier in the month almost always dominating over the meager competition doled out by the studios. In fact, since box office figures started being made official by

‘Elle’ Director Paul Verhoeven’s 10 Tips For a Successful Career After Hollywood

‘Elle’ Director Paul Verhoeven’s 10 Tips For a Successful Career After Hollywood
These are challenging times for any filmmaker who doesn’t want to be told what to do. Chasing a slice of the Hollywood studio pie almost always brings compromise, and many foreign-born directors return to their home countries and assemble independent film and television projects.

That was the path of Dutch-born Paul Verhoeven, whose career began in his own language with “Soldier of Orange” and the Oscar-nominated “Turkish Delight.” From there he forged an A-list career that included “Basic Instinct” (which played competition in Cannes) “RoboCop,” “Total Recall,” “Starship Troopers,” and, yes, “Showgirls.” His last Hollywood movie was “Hollow Man” with Kevin Bacon in 2000.

When Verhoeven could no longer find material that suited him, he went back to Holland. His 2006 Dutch World War II drama “Black Book” (Sony Pictures Classics) starred Carice Van Houten, before she joined “Game of Thrones,” and was shortlisted for the foreign Oscar.

Tiff 2016: Winners & Review Index

Tiff just ended crowning La La Land with the coveted People's Choice Award (runners up: Lion & Queen of Katwe) and Jackie with their new juried prize. We haven't totally closed up shop - we've left the door ajar because there are a few articles left to come. It takes time processing all of this art that's rushing over us! Films give us so many feelings! The Toronto International Film Festival is my personal favorite film festival in the world: easy to attend, friendly, well organized, less prohibitively expensive than other festivals. I saw and enjoyed 27 movies and would have seen a few more but for getting sick in the rain and rush. But the festival experience is such that even mediocre or bad movies can be remembered with positive associations.

Here are all the reviews and articles (thus far) in one place in case you missed any or would like a handy index.

Tiff 2016: 9 Hot Acquisition Titles at Festival
Few film festivals in the world double as an acquisitions marketplace quite like the Toronto International Film Festival, which will screen more than 300 movies between September 8 and September 18. Most of these films have yet to land a U.S. distributor, and only a select group of titles will secure a distribution deal before the end of the fest.

Which movies are likely to be swarmed by buyers at Tiff 2016? Here are nine hot titles from the lineup that could be prime targets for acquisition execs.

The Bad Batch

Writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s follow-up to her hit debut “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” is billed as a “dystopian love story in a Texas wasteland.” The film follows a young girl named Samantha (Suki Waterhouse) who’s been banished from civilized society and ends up escaping from a community of cannibals. Produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, the film stars Keanu Reeves,

MipTV: ‘Public Enemy’ Tops First MipDrama Screenings

MipTV: ‘Public Enemy’ Tops First MipDrama Screenings
Cannes – Belgian serial killer suspenser “Public Enemy,” one of a clutch of thrillers at the inaugural MipDrama Screenings, won its first Cri de Coeur Award, awarded Sunday on the eve of MipTV in Cannes.

Sold by Zodiak Rights, airing May on Belgian pubcaster Rtbf, and the first TV production of Entre Chien et Loup and Playtime Films, the 10 one-hour-seg “Public Enemy” charts the impact on a community of an ex-child killer’s release from prison. He is given shelter at the local monastery – just as a new wave of child murders breaks out. Some community members want to take justice into their own hands. The female cop on the case is equally conflicted, having had her own younger sister disappear when she was a small girl.

“The series asks: ‘What do you do with monsters like child killers? After a serial killer is released from prison, can we forgive him?

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films
As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies

First Look: Check Out Oscar Winner Portman as Legendary U.S. First Lady Kennedy

Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy: 'Jackie.' Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy in 'Jackie' Notwithstanding the box office-friendly Thor movies, which revolve around Chris Hemsworth in the title role, Natalie Portman has yet to have a star vehicle as impactful as Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, which earned her the Best Actress Academy Award nearly five years ago. Who knows, perhaps Pablo Larraín's Jackie will be one such vehicle; the biopic following U.S. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the days after President John F. Kennedy assassination is slated for a 2017 release. The image above is the official “first look,” initially posted at Deadline.com. Also in the Jackie cast: Peter Sarsgaard as Robert Kennedy, Max Casella, Beth Grant, and Greta Gerwig. Darren Aronofsky and Juan de Dios Larraín are the two credited producers, while Noah Oppenheim (The Maze Runner, The Divergent Series: Allegiant) is the credited screenwriter.

Beasts Of No Nation, Straight Outta Compton Among SAG Awards Ensemble Nominees

Contributed by Michelle McCue and Melissa Thompson

A morning full of eye-opening surprises, the nominations for the 22nd Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced.

The standout nods were the inclusion of Straight Outta Compton, Beasts Of No Nation, Sarah Silverman, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Idris Elba and two for Dame Helen Mirren.

Not among the perceived hopefuls called were Sylvester Stallone, Charlotte Rampling, Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, The Martian and The Hateful Eight.

Two nominating panels – one for television and one for film – each composed of 2,200 randomly selected union members from across the United States, chose this year’s nominees.

Some of the Sags choices were head-scratchers to be sure, but we’re thinking that the Oscar picks may be very different when The Academy announces their nominations next month live on Thursday, January 14, 2016, at 5:30 a.m. Pt at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

'Trumbo' leads SAG Award nominations
Idris Elba and Helen Mirren lead actor nominations with three nods each.Scroll down for full list of film and TV nominations

Hollywood blacklist drama Trumbo has led the nominations for the 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards with three nods for lead actor Bryan Cranston, supporting actress Helen Mirren and the ensemble cast. The Martian and The Hateful Eight were shut out.

Set in 1947, the film centres on Dalton Trumbo (Cranston), who was Hollywood’s top screenwriter, until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs.

Cranston will go up against Johnny Depp for Black Mass, Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant, Michael Fassbender for Steve Jobs and Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl.

Films that secured two nominations included Beasts Of No Nation, The Big Short, Carol, The Danish Girl, Room, Spotlight - whose outstanding cast nod will only strengthen its status as best picture Oscar frontrunner — and Steve Jobs.

Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations and It's Full of Surprises! See Full List!

The 22nd annual SAG Awards nominations were announced this morning and it's full of surprises! Sylvester Stallone, loved by critics and the National Board of Review for his performance in "Creed," was ignored. So was Kristen Stewart's supporting performance in "Clouds of Sils Maria." Matt Damon, who was so good and carried "The Martian" from start to finish, was also missing from the list.

But here's what I love about the SAG noms. First, Sarah Silverman's first dramatic performance in "I Smile Back" was embraced. And I'm also happy with the inclusion of "Room's" Brie Larson and the fantastic child actor, Jacob Tremblay. The endearing "Carol" also received noms for both Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and Saoirse Ronan's performance in the beautiful "Brooklyn" also received a nomination.

The big winner of the SAG noms is Bleecker Street's "Trumbo." Missing from earlier critics awards (see here

‘Trumbo’ Leads 2016 Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations

Nominees for the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were unveiled this morning in Hollywood, with a fair amount of surprises to be had. Leading the pack is Trumbo, which picked up three nominations, then a large batch of films behind it with two each: Beasts of No Nation, The Big Short, Carol, The Danish Girl, Room, Spotlight, and Steve Jobs.

Perhaps most surprising is no mention of The Hateful Eight, which has one of the year’s best ensembles. Also of questionable note is the inclusion of Helen Mirren for Woman in Gold, a film all but forgotten (we suppose Harvey Weinstein’s campaigning indeed worked). There’s also the welcome nods to Michael Shannon in 99 Homes and Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back, as well as an ensemble nod to Straight Outta Compton. Check out the full list of nominees below ahead of the ceremony on Saturday, Jan.
