After the embarrassing drama around the televised snafu, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made changes to ensure it won't happen again. I've only seen one of the nominees (Get Out) and found it just swell.
The Oscar voting pool now includes a greater number of young people, a fact that could help explain why traditional "Oscar bait" skewed to older viewers - like the Winston Churchill biopic "Darkest Hour" and the Pentagon Papers docudrama "The Post" - are seen as marginal contenders heading into Sunday night.
The problem is this: Those are the categories that win or lose Oscar pools.
5 - Greta Gerwig's only the 5th woman to ever be nominated for directing - it'd be a poignant win in a year dominated by calls for equality, and Jordan Peele's only the fifth black director to be nominated for his brilliant indie horror Get Out.
He became the third Mexican-born filmmaker to win the award, joining his friends and countrymen Alejandro Inarritu and Alfonso Cuaron - who once were dubbed "the Three Amigos". "This year, when you hear your name called, don't get up right away", Kimmel jokingly advised winners.
But let's make it interesting. The ceremony itself will begin at 7 p.m. and will run until about 10 p.m. Pacific Sunday to firstname.lastname@example.org. It's been one of the best received films of 2017 and the screenplay had a lot to do with that.
Three Billboards' lead Frances McDormand, who stars as a grieving mother determined to avenge her teenage daughter's brutal death, is widely expected to be named best actress.
Cuba Gooding Jr's epic speech while accepting the supporting actor award for Jerry Maguire has gone down in the annals for sheer boundless joy and enthusiasm. Allison Janney won Best Supporting Actress for "I, Tonya". Although "Shape of Water" and "Three Billboards" appear to be in a dead heat for best picture, Martin McDonagh, the director of "Billboards", was not nominated in this category. He's a heavy sentimental favorite.
Ellis, the lone female nominee in the Oscars' sound categories for mixing on "Baby Driver", said that when she started working in the 1980s, she was often the only woman on set who wasn't an actress.
The same could be said of Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, a tense and well-made summer blockbuster, but a summer blockbuster, just the same. Excellent movie. This summer, it was the movie to beat at the Oscars.
The animations up for Best Animated Feature are "The Boss Baby", "The Breadwinner", "Coco", "Loving Vincent" and "Ferdinand".
Paul Conway, a State University College at Oneonta professor emeritus, chose the film, "Simply because of its pure entertainment value: rich in its sense of humor, understanding of human nature, and quirky plot", he said.
Live action short: "DeKalb Elementary".
"'Shape of Water' is handsome, original film making and del Toro will be rewarded for this", Golden said.
Speaking to reporters backstage, Vieau noted that Toronto's screen community had a huge year not only with the recognition for "The Shape of Water", but also the accolades for TV's "The Handmaid's Tale", which was shot in the city.
Sorvino and dozens of women accused Weinstein late previous year of sexual misconduct, including rape, which allegedly happened over several decades. Serkis starrer "War for the Planet of the Apes" is nominated for Best Visual Effects.
