How Much Oscar Potential Does A Star Is Born Actually Have? Let's Break It Down

How Much Oscar Potential Does A Star Is Born Actually Have? Let's Break It Down
It's a Hollywood tale as old as time: a film generates strong buzz on the festival circuit for months, only to falter when it actually comes time for Oscar nominations. Despite receiving standing ovations at festivals like Tiff (2016's The Birth of a Nation) or earning praise for dramatic performances (2017's Stronger), some films just can't leap all the necessary hurdles required to make it into the race for an Oscar. Will the same happen to A Star Is Born?

Bradley Cooper's long-gestating project premiered on Oct. 4 to rave reviews for both his and costar Lady Gaga's performances, as well as the film's undeniably strong soundtrack. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter recently shared that at the official Academy screening of the movie for La-based members, so many people showed up that some had to be turned away at the door.

‘A Star is Born’ to top the charts: It’s the biggest movie soundtrack in 3 years

‘A Star is Born’ to top the charts: It’s the biggest movie soundtrack in 3 years
A Star is Born” has been bested by the comic book adaptation “Venom” for two weekends at the box office, but Tom Hardy is no match for the movie musical on the Billboard charts. The “Star” soundtrack, which was released on October 5 along with the movie, has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart. And it’s the biggest week for a soundtrack in more than three years.

The album featuring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper led the way with 231,000 equivalent album units, which are calculated by combining traditional album sales with individual track sales and online streams. Despite the recent success on the charts for soundtracks like “The Greatest Showman” and “Black Panther,” this is the biggest week for a soundtrack since “Fifty Shades of Grey” topped the Billboard 200 in February 2015 with 258,000 album units.

UK box office preview: 'First Man' to challenge holdovers
Neil Armstrong biopic to challenge Venom, Johnny English Strikes Again and A Star Is Born.

After a bumper weekend at the UK box office last week, which saw three titles open to more than £4m, this week sees Universal’s awards contender First Man enter the chart.

Starring Ryan Gosling as the titular ‘first man’ – the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong – the film chronicles Nasa’s attempts to pip the Soviet Union in the space race. It’s the next feature from director Damien Chazelle following the awards smash La La Land, and is likely to again be

Black Panther Is 2018’s Top Selling Blu-Ray So Far

Without a doubt, it’s been an unbelievable year at the box office for the highest grossing film franchise of all-time, which you might know better as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Punctuated by an incredible run at the ticket booth, 2018 saw Avengers: Infinity War become the fourth movie ever to conquer the $2 billion plateau, but before that, it wasn’t the culmination of a decade-long effort to unite Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the big screen bringing in most of the money.

Towards the end of the summer, Black Panther finally surpassed $700 million at the domestic box office, making the Ryan Coogler-directed feature only the third release to ever to top that mark, behind Avatar ($760M) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936M). And though the domestic theatrical run for T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and company, which began way back on February 16th and resulted in a massive $1.34 billion global haul is now over,

‘Incredibles 2’ could be part of new Pixar winning streak at Oscars

In the course of its 30-year history, Pixar have done exceptionally well at the Academy Awards. The animation powerhouse has won 14 Oscars for their full-length films, including a record nine in Best Animated Feature, and a further four for their shorts. That’s 18 in total – and counting. At the most recent Oscars, “Coco” won both Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“Remember Me”).

Now with “Incredibles 2,” Pixar will be looking for its first consecutive Best Animated Feature wins since they took home four in a row for “Ratatouille” (2007), “Wall-e” (2008), “Up” (2009), and “Toy Story 3” (2010). By consecutive, we don’t mean consecutive years, but rather consecutive films released.

Pixar’s first win for Best Animated Feature came when the category was only three years old and “Finding Nemo” took the trophy in 2003. “The Incredibles” won the following year. “Ratatouille” kicked off that four-film winning streak. Since then, Pixar claimed

Original Voice Actors Reprise Their Roles for Kingdom Hearts III

  • Cinelinx
Square Enix has announced that the voices that helped make Frozen, Tangled, Toy Story, Hercules, and more are returning to breathe life into their characters in Kingdom Hearts III, more within...

Since the inception of movies to video games, very rarely have we seen the original actor(s) reprise their roles for the interactive version.  Even Kingdom Hearts, in its early days, had to bring in new actors to voice some iconic characters.  The most high profile voice of the series was mainly Haley Joel Osment.  With Kingdom Hearts III, however, that's all about to change.  Along with the return of Haley Joel Osment as Sora, Square Enix has announced that the highly anticipated game has brought in the A-list cast from Disney's Frozen and Tangled, along with some iconic voices from Pirates of the Caribbean, Hercules, Toy Story, and other Disney IPs to reprise their roles for the English dub.

Secret to best Emmy predictions: My idiot savant method of no second-guessing

  • Gold Derby
I don’t mean to humble brag or even full-on brag. But even though I am the new Gold Derby editor on the block, I scored the best percentage of correct picks among my colleagues. I also tied with three other Experts – Chris Harnick of E!, Kelly Lawler of my former alma mater USA Today and Lynette Rice of Entertainment Weekly, all who cover TV for a living.

You can see the final leaderboard displaying the scores of our Experts here. Click on my name to see my right/wrong predictions.

But here is the thing: I am no TV expert. I am far more movie-motivated and Oscar-crazed. Sure, I have watched more than my share of “Chopped,” continue to indulge in “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race” and am addicted to CBS’ “The Good Fight.” Ok, I scored 61.54 percent correct, which would barely translate into a passing grade on anything.

Disney’s 2018 Global Box Office Becomes 2nd Biggest In Studio’s History, Tops 2017
Through this weekend, The Walt Disney Studios’ 2018 worldwide grosses have topped the full 2017 haul ($6.458B) to make this year already the second biggest in Mouse history. With $6,468.1M through Sunday, this is also now the third highest grossing year in industry history. The studio holds the overall industry record with 2016’s $7.6B which is followed by Universal’s $6.89B from 2015.

Disney titles so far in 2018 are split $2,745.8M domestic and $3,722.2M at the international box office.

In 2018, four movies have topped $1B globally, including three from the Magic Kingdom. The leader is Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War which in June became only the fourth movie to ever cross $2B.

Despite the underperformance of pics like Solo: A Star Wars Story ($393M) and A Wrinkle In Time ($132.7M), this has been a mighty year for the Mouse. In the billion-dollar-plus club, Infinity War is joined by Black Panther, a phenomenon and

Gael Garcia Bernal Can’t Name a Single American Latino Filmmaker, and Knows That’s a Problem

When Gael Garcia Bernal was on the Sundance U.S. dramatic competition jury in 2017, the actor was disappointed to find that not a single film in the section was directed by an American-born filmmaker of Latino descent. Almost two years later, he was struggling to name one person who could have been there. “I would love to mention a good Latino director from the U.S.,” he said over coffee at the Bowery Hotel this week. “I would love to give you one name — like, yeah, man, this guy is doing great stuff. But no. I can’t.”

The actor was quick to draw a distinction between American Latinos and filmmakers born in Latin-American countries who found success in the United States — especially the so-called Three Amigos, Alfonso Cuaron, Alejandro G. Iñarritu, and Guillermo del Toro. Bernal’s breakout performance was in Iñarritu’s “Amores Perros,” and he worked with

Toronto Film Review: ‘Icebox’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Icebox’
It’s difficult for a film to feel timelier than “Icebox,” writer-director Daniel Sawka’s precisely detailed and arrestingly spare drama about a 12-year-old Honduran boy whose desperate flight from gang violence in his homeland leads to his arrest near the U.S.-Mexican border, and subsequent incarceration in one of the several chain-link-fence cages at an immigrant detention facility.

According to an end-credits statement, Sawka — who expanded this feature from his award-winning 2016 short with the help of producer James L. Brooks — was finishing post-production work when the grim situation he depicts here turned unimaginably worse, due to Trump administration “zero-tolerance” policies that greatly diminished the ability of migrants like his movie’s protagonist to apply for asylum in the United States.

In a sense, “Icebox” represents the latest iteration of the socially conscious, torn-from-the-headlines melodramas that were a Warner Bros. specialty in the 1930s and’40s. But unlike such spiritual antecedents as,

Wanda Sykes, Gabriel Iglesias Join Animated Feature ‘UglyDolls’
Comedians Gabriel Iglesias and Wanda Sykes have been added to the voice cast of STXfilms’ animated “UglyDolls,” joining Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas and Pitbull.

“Having two comedy powerhouses like Gabriel Iglesias and Wanda Sykes join the cast of ‘UglyDolls’ adds yet another creative layer to this heartwarming film” said Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms. “Wanda’s ability to be hilarious and sarcastic while always staying completely charming and Gabriel’s undeniable likability and relatable brand of comedy round out this endearing story, and help create a world that pops for both children and adult audiences alike.”

Variety first reported in 2015 that Stx had launched a family and animation division with the “UglyDoll” movie as its first project in a deal with Pretty Ugly LLC, the toy company behind the critters. The toys subvert the idea of ugly by turning the adjective into a positive, and include characters such as Wage,

Star Wars: The Last Jedi topping home-video sales charts for 2018

It may have been the most divisive instalment of the franchise – and one that has led many fans to accuse Disney of killing the saga – but that hasn’t stopped Star Wars: The Last Jedi from topping the home-entertainment sales charts for the year so far.

As revealed by Star Wars Legacy and The Numbers, the Rian Johnson-directed The Last Jedi has shifted 3,869,705 Blu-rays and DVDs in the States, putting it ahead of Marvel’s Black Panther and Pixar’s Coco in second and third place with 3.81 million and 3.41 million units respectively.

There is of course still a few months to go this year, and so it’s possible that Black Panther – or, more likely, Avengers: Infinity War – will find itself sitting in top spot by the time that 2018 draws to a close.

However, the sales figures will surely prove welcome news for Lucasfilm, with the studio forced to

Despite the Haters, The Last Jedi Is 2018's Biggest Selling Blu-ray

Despite the Haters, The Last Jedi Is 2018's Biggest Selling Blu-ray
Despite being the most divisive Star Wars movie in the history of the franchise,The Last Jedi is currently the best-selling Blu-ray of 2018. We're roughly three-quarters of the way through the year and, by a pretty wide margin, director Rian Johnson's entry in a galaxy far, far away is leading the pack with 3.02 million units sold. That means, divisive as it may have been, Lucasfilm is still raking in the dough.

Black Panther comes in at the number two spot with 2.62 million units sold. Though, it's arguable that Black Panther is just as successful, or close to it, as the Marvel Studios release hit Blu-ray in mid-May, whereas The Last Jedi hit shelves back in March. Trailing those two billion dollar blockbuster behemoths is another McU movie in the form of Thor: Ragnarok, with 2.34 million units sold so far in 2018.

The big takeaway here is that Disney is clearly

Oscars flashback: ‘The Incredibles’ edged out ‘Shrek 2’ for Best Animated Feature

Oscars flashback: ‘The Incredibles’ edged out ‘Shrek 2’ for Best Animated Feature
It took 14 years after the smash success of “The Incredibles” for the sequel to appear but the wait was worth it. This continuation of the story was well-received by both critics (93 at Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences ($1.1 billion and counting). Can it parlay this success into an Oscar for Best Animated Feature?

The original film did just that, winning a tight race against “Shrek 2,” the sequel to the film that had won this award in its inaugural year (2001), and the box office smash “Shark Tale.” The latter was a surprise nominee, given that it merited a mere 35 score at Rotten Tomatoes. But it boasted an all-star voice cast including Oscar winners Robert De Niro, Angelina Jolie, Renee Zellweger and Martin Scorsese. And it’s jukebox musical style made it one of the catchiest flicks of the year.

Fall is the time of year when Oscar hopefuls and would-be blockbusters complete for eyeballs at the cineplex. While 2018 has already seen movies like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War smash records, autumn will deliver films poised to be a part of the awards season conversation.

Last year, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle bulldozed the box office on its way to grossing nearly $1 billion worldwide, while Dec. 1 release The Shape of Water went on to win the best picture Oscar and Thanksgiving week's Coco claimed the hearts of audiences before it went on to win best animated film.
