Channing, who died Tuesday at her home at age 97, made numerous appearances on both the big and small screens and, apart from

Critics’ Choice Winners ‘Roma,’ ‘Vice,’ and ‘A Star Is Born’ Advance in Oscar Race

Critics’ Choice Winners ‘Roma,’ ‘Vice,’ and ‘A Star Is Born’ Advance in Oscar Race
Last year at the chilly Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica airport, Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro thanked the Broadcast Film Critics as he accepted the Critics’ Choice award for Best Picture for “The Shape of Water.” Other Critics’ Choice winners that have gone on to win the Oscar include “Spotlight,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Argo,” “The Artist,” “The Hurt Locker,” and “Slumdog Millionaire.” The ones that have not landed Best Picture Oscars came damn close: “The Social Network,” “Boyhood,” and “La La Land.”

The Broadcast Film Critics do better than other critics groups at mirroring Academy voters’ tastes because they are both bigger — more than 330 voters nationwide from radio, online and television — and more mainstream.

Which bodes well for this year’s Best Picture winner, “Roma” (Netflix), which led the field with four wins, including Director, Cinematography and Best Foreign Language Film for Alfonso Cuarón, who could follow his “amigos” Del Toro and A.

2019 Producers Guild of America Awards: Another Oscar Best Picture preview by PGA?

What can we expect when the Producers Guild of America reveals its Best Picture winner on Jan. 19? Twenty of the first 29 films to claim this top prize from the guild went on to be named Best Picture at the Academy Awards, including last year’s double dipper, “The Shape of Water.”

The PGA Awards champ will be crowned three days before Oscar nominations are announced on Jan. 22. The guild nominees for its top prize are: “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “The Favourite,” “Green Book,” “A Quiet Place,” “Roma,” “A Star is Born” and “Vice.”

The PGA adopted the same system as the Oscars — the preferential ballot — for the final vote beginning in 2010. The first six winners of this expanded field of 10 contenders went on to repeat at the Oscars.

2019 Critics’ Choice Awards: Will they preview the Oscars again?

The Critics’ Choice Awards are renowned as one of the best barometers for predicting the Oscars. Over their 23-year history these prizes bestowed by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. (Bfca) have previewed 14 Best Picture Oscar winners as well as 18 Best Director, 16 Best Actor, 13 Best Actress, 13 Supporting Actor and 16 Supporting Actress champs.

Last year, this group of journos foresaw the outcome in all of those Academy Awards races. The Critic’s Choice winners were revealed on Jan. 11, which was one day before Oscar nominations voting closes. “The Shape of Water” took the top prize here and Guillermo del Toro had a chance to practice the acceptance speech he would give at the Oscars. Likewise for the four acting winners: Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney.

‘Roma’ poised to become 1st foreign language Best Picture winner at Critics’ Choice Awards

‘Roma’ poised to become 1st foreign language Best Picture winner at Critics’ Choice Awards
“Roma” didn’t win either of the Golden Globes’ top film prizes because it was ineligible as a foreign language film, but it’s looking good to walk away with Best Picture at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards. Per our predictions, “Roma” has 15/2 odds to become the first foreign language film to win the award in Critics’ Choice history.

It had been a close duel between “Roma” and “A Star Is Born” the past month, but “Roma” surged ahead within the past week after the latter only when 1-for-5 at the Golden Globes. “Roma,” on the other hand, won its expected categories, Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron and Best Foreign Language Film.

Battle of the Sams: Will Elliott or Rockwell make the Best Supporting Actor Oscar cut?

Battle of the Sams: Will Elliott or Rockwell make the Best Supporting Actor Oscar cut?
Sam is in? But which one? Now that the four televised precursors have spoken, four spots in the Best Supporting Actor Oscar race appear to be secure: Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”), Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) all scored Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA nominations. The last spot has been split between two Sams: Elliott (“A Star Is Born”), who made Critics’ Choice and SAG, and Rockwell (“Vice”), who was shortlisted at the Globes and BAFTA. Assuming the other four are in, which Sam will take the final spot in the Oscar lineup?

Elliott has had a rocky Oscar journey for what many felt was a safe nomination after “A Star Is Born” opened to great reviews and became a box office hit. The Globe snub was surprising, but in hindsight, given how “A Star Is Born

Anne Hathaway, Tim Robbins, Bill Pullman and more join Todd Haynes’ DuPont drama

Deadline is reporting that Anne Hathaway (Ocean’s 8), Tim Robbins (Here and Now), Bill Pullman (The Sinner), Bill Camp (Vice), Victor Garber (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Mare Winningham (The Affair) and William Jackson Harper (The Good Place) are joining Mark Ruffalo in Todd Haynes’ untitled drama about the DuPont pollution scandal.

The film, formerly titled Dry Run, is based upon the New York Times Magazine article ‘The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare’ and sees Ruffalo portraying Robert Bilott, a corporate defense attorney whose environmental suit against the DuPont conglomerate exposed decades of chemical pollution.

Filming on the legal drama is set to get underway this coming week, with Haynes directing from a script by Mario Correa (Let Her Speak) and Matthew Carnahan (Deepwater Horizon). In addition to starring Ruffalo is also producing the movie with Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon of Killer Films, while Spotlight’s Jeff Skoll

Critics’ Choice film predictions: ‘BlacKkKlansman’ will give Spike Lee his first win in Best Adapted Screenplay

Critics’ Choice film predictions: ‘BlacKkKlansman’ will give Spike Lee his first win in Best Adapted Screenplay
It’ll be no contest for “BlacKkKlansman” in the Best Adapted Screenplay race at the Critics’ Choice Awards. The film has a 9/2 lead in our combined odds to take the prize on Sunday, which would give Spike Lee his first Critics’ Choice Award statuette.

Lee co-wrote “BlacKkKlansman” with Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz and Kevin Willmott. The quartet has the support of eight Experts, seven Editors and 19 of our Top 24 users. Since “BlacKkKlansman” was snubbed in the Golden Globes’ single screenplay category, which was won by “Green Book,” this would be the first opportunity for Lee to give a televised speech.

‘First Man’ Is Far More Authentic Than Your Average Biopic, But Most Audiences Don’t Know That

‘First Man’ Is Far More Authentic Than Your Average Biopic, But Most Audiences Don’t Know That
You can check Josh Singer’s homework; in fact, the Oscar-winning screenwriter would love nothing more than that. In an awards season that has exalted fact-based features like “Green Book” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” that have been dogged by claims of inauthenticity and fact-stretching, Singer’s “First Man” screenplay provides a compelling counterpoint: a rigorously investigated script that was vetted by experts, family members, and friends, and one that still offers a fresh take on the mythos of astronaut Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling).

Singer is no stranger to turning true stories into lauded features — while his 2013 debut film, the Julian Assange-centric “The Fifth Estate,” was hardly a smash hit, it opened the door for his follow-up projects. Two years after “The Fifth Estate,” Singer earned his first Oscar for “Spotlight,” which dramatized the true story of the Boston Globe journalists who uncovered the Catholic Church molestation scandal. In 2017, Singer and

‘A Star is Born’: Will Sam Elliott finally get an Oscar nomination after 50 years in Hollywood?

‘A Star is Born’: Will Sam Elliott finally get an Oscar nomination after 50 years in Hollywood?
Three years ago, I predicted that British actor Mark Rylance would win the supporting actor Oscar for his performance in Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies,” which he did. People had said I was overlooking the obvious, that Sylvester Stallone’s seventh and best portrayal of Rocky Balboa would win for “Creed.”

When pressed about my choice, all I could say was that I thought Rylance had given the best supporting performance among the nominees, who also included Christian Bale for “The Big Short,” Mark Ruffalo for “Spotlight,”and Tom Hardy for “The Revenant.”

I also said that I thought his role as the Soviet spy Adolph Abel was the very definition of a supporting role; i.e., a character who elevates and underscores – supports – the main character in the development of a plot.

Rylance, whom I’d known little about before, is mesmerizing in his every appearance in the

2019 Directors Guild of America Awards winner will become Oscar frontrunner

On Tuesday (Jan. 8), the Directors Guild of America announced the nominees for the 71st annual edition of its awards. The five contenders are: Bradley Cooper (“A Star is Born”), Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”), Peter Farrelly (“Green Book”), Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Adam McKay (“Vice”).

Of the 20 regional critics groups to weigh in with their picks of the best of the year, he has dominated with a lucky 13 wins. The only other DGA nominee with multiple wins is Lee with three.

Golden Globes: ‘Green Book’ joins 71 other films to win Best Comedy or Musical

For the first eight years of its existence beginning in 1943, the Golden Globes gave out just one award for Best Picture. But beginning in 1951, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided to hand out separate prizes for dramas and comedies or musicals.

They did combine the categories one last time in 1953. And for five years beginning in 1958, they gave out award to both comedies and musicals.

Over the decades, 72 comedies and musicals have claimed one of these awards. Of these, a dozen went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars. Click through our photo gallery above that features all the Best Comedy/Musical Film Golden Globes winners to find out which ones pulled off this double act.

2019 BAFTA nominations preview: What do the British Academy Awards mean for Oscars?

Nominations for the 72nd annual BAFTA Awards will be revealed on Jan. 9. That is five days before the deadline for Oscar voters to weigh in with their choices for nominations. The BAFTAs will be handed out in London on Feb. 10. This is two days before Oscar voters begin final voting. The 91st annual Academy Awards take place on Sunday, February 24.

The British Academy of Film and Television Academy has approximately 8,000 voting members as does the academy. The Brits began voting for their nominations for on Dec. 14. They had until Jan. 2 to complete their ballots online. Historically, about two-thirds of the contenders here also reap Oscar bids.

Since the BAFTAs moved up in 2000 to take place before the Oscars, these kudos have foreseen eight of the 17 Best Picture Oscar winners. Last year, the BAFTAs went with the home-grown “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” over “The Shape of Water.”

Best Director Oscar predictions by experts: Alfonso Cuaron (‘Roma’) far ahead on eve of DGA nominations

Best Director Oscar predictions by experts: Alfonso Cuaron (‘Roma’) far ahead on eve of DGA nominations
After winning the Golden Globe, “Roma” helmer Alfonso Cuaron has solidified his hold on first place in the race for Best Director at the Oscars according to our 30 experts from major media outlets. He has the votes of 28 of these pundits. One expert opts for “BlacKkKlansman” writer/director Spike Lee while another is touting triple threat Bradley Cooper (“A Star is Born”).

But while Cuaron has leading odds of 16/5 to win Best Director, only five of our experts expect his memoir to take home the top Academy Award. Nineteen expect Cooper’s remake of the classic tale of Hollywood to be named Best Picture. Another four favor Peter Farrelly‘ charmer “Green Book” while two tout Yorgos Lanthimos‘s period piece “The Favourite” and one embraces Ryan Coogler‘s blockbuster “Black Panther.”

Before the academy reintroduced the preferential ballot for Best Picture in 2010, such divides between the two top Oscars were fairly rare.

The Golden Globe champs don’t match with the Best Picture Oscar as often as you might think

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association anointed “Green Book” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” as the two best films of the year at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards. The former’s Best Comedy/Musical Film victory was predicted, but the latter’s upset was a stunner, as “Bohemian Rhapsody” was in fifth place in our Best Drama Film odds. So does that mean they’re the two Oscar favorites now? Not so fast.

Since the Globes has two film categories, it has double the chances of presaging the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner. And in its 75-year history, one of its drama or comedy/musical champs has gone on to win the Oscar 50 times, which is about two-thirds of the time.

‘First Man’ Scribe Josh Singer On The Value Of Truth-Telling Art In Troubled Times

‘First Man’ Scribe Josh Singer On The Value Of Truth-Telling Art In Troubled Times
The Oscar-winning scribe behind such historical projects as Spotlight, The Post and First Man, Josh Singer can’t overemphasize the importance of getting his stories right. On the latter film from Damien Chazelle, based on a biography by James R. Hansen, the writer dove head first into a project of incredible complexity. Depicting the life of Neil Armstrong, the first man to step foot on the moon, and every challenge and sacrifice he endured to get there, the project was emotionally deep, probing the psyche of an inward-looking figure grappling with loss. Portraying the terrifying nature of space flight, as no film had before, it naturally concerned itself with technical detail as well, which would have to be reckoned with at the same time.

To present Armstrong’s experience of grief and unprecedented achievement as realistically and holistically as possible, Singer did an immense amount of research. Consulting Hansen’s text,
