Oscars slugfest 2019: Are Timothee Chalamet, Emily Blunt and Viggo Mortensen at risk of being snubbed? [Watch]

Oscars slugfest 2019: Are Timothee Chalamet, Emily Blunt and Viggo Mortensen at risk of being snubbed? [Watch]
Should Timothee Chalamet be worried about his Oscar chances? After receiving a Best Actor nomination last year for “Call Me By Your Name” he looks like he’s on his way to a potential second bid this year for his supporting turn in “Beautiful Boy.” But as Gold Derby contributors Riley Chow, Rob Licuria, Amanda Spears and I point out in a recent slugfest on the acting races, he might be on shaky ground. Watch our entire video above.

Licuria points out that Chalamet “has been landing the right nominations throughout the season,” including recognition from SAG, Critics’ Choice, BAFTA and the Golden Globes. But that was also true of past contenders like Hong Chau in “Downsizing” (2017) and Daniel Bruhl in “Rush” (2013), who also had the right precursor support but didn’t end up with Oscar nominations. On the other hand, Licuria also notes the “leftover residual love from ‘Call Me By Your Name

5 reasons why ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ could pull off a SAG Awards shockeroo

After the recent revelation that my SAG polling suggests an easy victory for Rami Malek as Best Actor for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” I’ve been asked about results in other categories. Truth be told, I often have limited time when speaking to various SAG members in New York City. They’re often in a rush to get to the subway, an audition, or the next table at the restaurant in which they’re working.

Nonetheless, I’ve done my best to assess SAG votes in the Best Cast in a Motion Picture field. After reading off the names, there’s one response that comes up more than any other.

Can you repeat the choices?

Indeed, many SAG folks are a little baffled by the ensemble nominations. (It’s nice to know that we’re not alone.) They have to think long and hard before making their selection. This makes it pretty

Jack Mathews’ 2019 Oscar nominations predictions: Locks, likely and longshots

Jack Mathews’ 2019 Oscar nominations predictions: Locks, likely and longshots
The strangeness of this Oscar season is that predicting nominees seems easier than ever while identifying the actual front-runners is a bitch.

Even before “Green Book” won the Producers Guild award on Saturday and changed the dynamics of the Best Picture race, it looked like a “pick-em” between “Roma” and “A Star is Born” for the Oscar with “BlacKkKlansman,” “The Favourite,” “Green Book” and even Globe drama winner “Bohemian Rhapsody” charging from behind.

Expect all of those movies to be on the Oscars Best Picture ballot to be announced before sun-up on Tuesday (Jan. 22) and any of them could win at next month’s Academy Awards.

It’s the same in the acting categories. There are no prohibitive favorites like Gary Oldman (“The Darkest Hour”), Meryl Streep (“The Iron Lady”) or Matthew McConaughey (“Dallas Buyer’s Club”) to check off with confidence. Yet, the picture is pretty clear who at

Sparks Fly Between Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in First Look at Their Holiday Rom-Com

Sparks Fly Between Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in First Look at Their Holiday Rom-Com
It might be the start of a new year, but we're already feeling the holiday cheer thanks to Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding. In September, the two signed on to star in a Christmas-themed romance, Last Christmas. The film, set in London, will be directed by Paul Feig, whose previous work includes Bridesmaids, The Heat, Ghostbusters, and most recently, Golding's A Simple Favor. Other producers who will have a hand in the film are Jessie Henderson, David Livingstone, and Emma Thompson, the latter of whom also wrote the screenplay with the help of Bryony Kimmings. Actresses Rebecca Root, Thompson, and Michelle Yeoh will also star!

The film is expected to hit theaters on Nov. 15, and takes its name from Wham!'s hit single of the same name. "I'd met with George Michael. He was concerned about the homeless, which is a large part of this story," Thompson told The Daily Mail in January.

Which source material is the most likely to bring an Adapted Screenplay Oscar nomination?

Which source material is the most likely to bring an Adapted Screenplay Oscar nomination?
A screenplay could be adapted from many different forms of existing works — everything from a novel or a memoir to a newspaper article. The academy’s ruling also means that remakes/sequels/prequels etc, which all may feature made-up characters and stories, are classed as adapted, too as they are taken from their original films.

Let’s take a look back at the last five ceremonies and examine the source material of the 25 Adapted Screenplay nominees – which type of source material do the Academy prefer? And what does it mean for this year’s potential Adapted Screenplay nominees? Here’s the list of nominees and winners in the category in the last five ceremonies:

2018:

Winner: “Call Me By Your Name” – Novel

The Disaster Artist” – Non-fiction book

Logan” – Comic-book/graphic novel

“Molly’s Game” – Memoir

Mudbound” – Novel

2017:

Winner: “Moonlight” – Play

Arrival” – Short story

Fences” – Play

Green Book wins the PGA. Is Oscar next?

by Nathaniel R

Peter Farrelly accepting the Outstanding Producer for Theatrical Motion Pictures award for "Green Book"

The weekend before the Oscar nominations, Green Book gets another feather in its divisive cap. It took the top PGA prize last night. It was nominated against Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, A Quiet Place, Roma, A Star is Born, and Vice... most but not all of which will transfer to Oscar Best Picture nominations if past statistics hold. In the nine years of the modern Best Picture era (by which we mean 2009 and onward when the field expanded) only three movies have won the PGA that did not repeat at the Oscars: Gravity (2013), The Big Short  (2015), and La La Land  (2016). But it's really only two since Gravity tied at the PGA with 12 Years a Slave (the latter of which did not have to share the Oscar

Michael Rooker and more check in to Fantasy Island

Sony Pictures and Blumhouse’s big screen adaptation of the hit ABC TV series Fantasy Island is filling out its cast, with Deadline reporting that Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), Charlotte McKinney (Baywatch), Parisa Fitz-Henley (Luke Cage) and Austin Stowell (Catch 22) have joined the film.

Fantasy Island is being directed by Jeff Wadlow (Truth or Dare) and will see Michael Pena (Ant-Man) taking on the role of Mister Roarke, the mysterious host of an island where guests can live out their fantasies, for a price.

The movie is said to be a cross between Westworld and The Cabin in the Woods, and also has Dave Bautista (Avengers: Infinity War), Lucy Hale (Truth or Dare), Jimmy O. Yang (Crazy Rich Asians), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars) and Portia Doubleday (Mr. Robot) attached to star.

Fantasy Island is set for release on February 28th 2020. Wadlow has written the script with Truth or

PGA Gives ‘Green Book’ Another Big Win But There Still Is No Real Front Runner – And Who In Their Right Mind Wants To Be One?

Normally, as Green Book has now done, when a movie starts out the season by taking the top People’s Choice prize at the Toronto Film Festival, launches awards-giving season with a Best Picture win at the National Board Of Review, then backs up its cred by taking the most Golden Globes including one for Best Picture (Comedy/Musical), and then wins the Producers Guild Of America Best Picture honor, you would have to dub it the front runner. That is what several pundits are doing now but it wouldn’t be wise. You could get whiplash trying to discern the “front runner” this season. Just ask early Fr, A Star Is Born, or critics’ Fr Roma, to name two titles that have apparently ceded the honor to Green Book, if the pundits are right.

First of all this isn’t at all a “normal” season and remains perhaps the

Strength in numbers: ‘Black Panther’ would be 14th SAG Awards ensemble champ with 10-plus cast members

Strength in numbers: ‘Black Panther’ would be 14th SAG Awards ensemble champ with 10-plus cast members
When it comes to the Screen Actors Guild Awards’ ensemble category, more is more. Generally speaking, the larger the cast you have, the better. And that could be key for “Black Panther,” which boasts the biggest cast of the nominees this year and would be the 14th film with double-digit cast members to win.

Led by Chadwick Boseman, “Black Panther” has 12 credited actors, compared to nine for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” eight for “Crazy Rich Asians,” seven for “A Star Is Born” and six for “BlacKkKlansman.” Some of these films — ahem, “Crazy Rich Asians,” “BlacKkKlansman” — technically have larger ensembles, but SAG Awards rules stipulate that only actors with their own title card are eligible for the award. The eligible actors are listed on the final ballot, so a block of names staring back at you could be convincing.

In the category’s 23-year existence — it was added at the second ceremony — 13 films

What ‘Green Book’ Winning the PGA Award Means for the Most Competitive Oscars In Years

The Beverly Hilton was packed with Academy voters Saturday, as 10 films were presented as candidates for the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer Guild Award. Going in, the conversation was all about what people didn’t know: No one had any idea which film would win. There was Bradley Cooper’s guild frontrunner “A Star Is Born,” the effectively directorless “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and a pack of deserving and inclusive movies including Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma,” Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther,” Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman,” and Jon M. Chu’s “Crazy Rich Asians.”

The movie that answered the question is clearly a popular favorite: Peter Farrelly’s charming ’60s racial drama “Green Book.” While it has stirred controversy since it won the People’s Choice award at the Toronto Film International Film Festival — which often presages the ultimate Best Picture winner — it has delighted audiences ever since.

‘Green Book’ win at PGA Awards boosts its Best Picture Oscar odds: Could SAG Awards change that?

‘Green Book’ win at PGA Awards boosts its Best Picture Oscar odds: Could SAG Awards change that?
Green Book” won Best Picture at the PGA Awards on Jan. 19. We know that the Producers Guild of America has previewed a whopping 20 of the last 29 Best Picture Oscar winners including seven of the nine since the academy expanded the category in 2010. So, that must mean “Green Book” is the new Academy Awards frontrunner, ahead of “A Star is Born,” which had been predicted to win this precursor prize, right? Not so fast.

Remember, the guild had gotten it wrong twice in a row before it went with “The Shape of Water” last year. In 2016 “The Big Short” took the PGA award while “Spotlight” went home with the top Oscar. And in 2017 “La La Land” won over the members of the producers guild while “Moonlight” was the academy favorite.

Were those two years the exception or the new rule?

Producers Guild Award Goes To “Green Book”

A few hours ago, the Producers Guild of America threw a bit of a monkey-wrench into the awards season works. Giving out their Producers Guild Awards, the top prize went to Green Book, shooting that controversial film to the front of the Oscar race. The PGA voters always catapult their winners towards Best Picture at the Academy Awards, so it was expected that this would occur here too. Well, it probably has, just with a movie that wasn’t the presumptive top tier with producers. Guess that wasn’t the case, so we need to re-evaluate things a bit. I’ll try to make sense of it all below! PGA went with Peter Farrelly’s Green Book over what seemed like more likely choice in Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born and Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma. Green Book wasn’t even necessarily considered next in line, as an upset
