‘The Favourite’ Oscar interviews: Exclusive chats with nominees Tony McNamara, Fiona Crombie, Yorgos Mavropsaridis [Watch]
With 10 Academy Award bids, “The Favourite” is tied with “Roma” as the most nominated film, making it … well, a favourite with voters. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, this Fox Searchlight release centers on the rivalry between two cousins (Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz) for the affections of the frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman). Gold Derby spoke with screenwriter Tony McNamara, production designer Fiona Crombie and film editor Yorgos Mavropsaridis about their Oscar-nominated work.

When McNamara was hired to work on Deborah Davis‘s draft of the script he wanted to “re-engineer the period movie.” He explains, “We just wanted it to be about people in a really contemporary way, not in the sense we were looking back at something.” Instead, he wanted “these three women and the dilemmas they got up with every day to be very fresh,

What’s going on with the unpredictable 2019 Oscar race for Best Film Editing?

What’s going on with the unpredictable 2019 Oscar race for Best Film Editing?
The Oscar for Best Film Editing could very well go to any of the five films that made the cut this year. The field includes “BlacKkKlansman” (Barry Alexander Brown) “Bohemian Rhapsody” (John Ottman) “The Favourite” (Yorgos Mavropsaridis) “Green Book” (Patrick J. Don Vito) and “Vice” (Hank Corwin). With three of these films winning the major precursor editing awards and the other two being strong contenders of their own, the winner of Best Film Editing is truly anyone’s guess.

Early indication was that “Roma” could pick up a victory here, considering its frontrunner status and its winning at multiple critics organizations. “First Man” also won many critics prizes for its editing including the Critics’ Choice Award. Neither was even nominated in the final lineup. “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “The Favourite” went on to win the Ace Eddie Awards for drama and comedy, respectively, giving us an indication that it might be

All 8 Best Picture Oscar nominees end awards seasons with at least one guild win each

All 8 Best Picture Oscar nominees end awards seasons with at least one guild win each
In a sign of the competitiveness of this year’s Oscar race for Best Picture, each of the eight nominees prevailed with at least one of the 13 guilds that hand out prizes. The leader on the scoreboard is “Bohemian Rhapsody” with four wins from: the actors (lead Rami Malek), film editors (John Ottman on the drama side), sound editors and sound mixers.

Among the bids “Bohemian Rhapsody” lost was in the period film race at the Costume Design Awards on Tuesday, just hours after Oscar voting ended. “The Favourite” took that prize, adding to its previous success with the art directors and film editors (Yorgos Mavropsaridis on the comedy side) to end the guild awards season with three wins.

Likewise for “Black Panther,” which claimed the fantasy film award from the Cdg. It had previously prevailed in that category with the art directors and had also won over the actors claiming both ensemble awards.

2019 Oscars guild awards final scorecard: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ wins 4, ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Green Book’ 3
While “Bohemian Rhapsody” lost at the Costume Designer Awards on Tuesday, it still ended up winning the most precursor prizes of the eight Best Picture nominees at the Oscars. This biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury won with four of the nine guilds at which it contended. It lost with the art directors, costume designers, makeup artists/hairstylists, producers and visual effects wizards.

Two of its Academy Awards rivals for the top award — “Black Panther” and “The Favourite” — did win over the costume designers. These victories in the fantasy and period film races respectively brought their overall hauls to three apiece. “Black Panther” had previously prevailed with the actors and art directors while “The Favourite” scored with the art directors and film editors. They are now tied with “Green Book,” which had wins with the actors, casting directors and producers.

All 8 Best Picture Oscar nominees won at least one guild award but were snubbed by the WGA Awards

Each of the eight films up for Best Picture at the Oscars can claim bragging rights to winning at least one guild award. This makes it even more surprising that none of these top picks of the academy was able to win over the Writers Guild of America, which opted to honor “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” and “Eighth Grade” instead on February 17.

The former won the adapted screenplay WGA Award over, among others, three Best Picture contenders. That race was rounded out by “If Beale Street Could Talk.” The latter, which was snubbed by the Oscars, won the original screenplay award from the guild. Among those it bested were Best Picture nominees “Green Book,” “Roma” and “Vice.” The fifth WGA nominee was “A Quiet Place” while the Oscars went with “The Favourite,” which had been ineligible for consideration here.

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves into first with two days of voting left
With the Writers Guild and Motion Picture Sound Editors awards on Sunday (February 17), we’ve now heard from 12 of the 13 guilds. The costume designers don’t weigh in till hours after Oscar voting ends on Tuesday, February 19.

The winners with the writers were “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” (adapted”) and “Eighth Grade” (original) while “A Quiet Place” took the top sound editing award. The Oscar frontrunner for Best Original Screenplay, “The Favourite,” was ineligible at the WGA Awards. Over on the sound side, two other Best Picture nominees, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Roma,” picked up two and one prizes respectively.

Bohemian Rhapsody” had also won on Saturday with the sound mixers at the Cinema Audio Society Awards. That one-two punch moves this biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury into first on our guild awards scorecard with four wins following its success with the actors and film editors.

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ finally gets on board with makeup win but loses sound mixing to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
It took till the last weekend of guild awards season but “A Star is Born” finally picked up a prize at the Makeup and Hair Styling Awards on Saturday, February 16.

The Cinema Audio Society went with “Bohemian Rhapsody” for Best Sound Mixing.

This marked the third victory to date for the biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury following its success with the actors and film editors. “Crazy Rich Asians” picked up its third prize as well, with a win for contemporary hairstyling. It had previously won over both the art and casting directors. Each is now tied with “Green Book,” which has wins with the actors, casting directors and producers.

Two more guilds — the sound editors and writers — will chime in on Sunday.

Why ‘The Favourite’ should be the favorite to win the Best Picture Oscar

Why ‘The Favourite’ should be the favorite to win the Best Picture Oscar
Arguably one of 2018’s best films was “The Favourite,” a period comedy-drama written by Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara, and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. It reaped 10 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, making it the most nominated film alongside Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma.” But will the love for the movie translate into a Best Picture win?

Set in early 18th century England, “The Favourite” chronicles Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) and her distant cousin Abigail Hill’s (Emma Stone) tantalizing power games to one-up each other to be the chief adviser to the temperamental Queen Anne (Olivia Colman).

What could have easily been your conventional stuffy period drama ended up being a juicy, refreshing take on power dynamics, gender roles and social hierarchy in 18th century Britain. Lanthimos’ directorial choices, as well as Davis and McNamara’s script, which blurs the lines between comedy and drama seamlessly with its witty, razor-sharp dialogue,

Editor Yorgos Mavropsaridis Discusses ‘The Favourite’s Storybook Structure & His Interpretation Of The Film’s Final Shot
Yorgos Lanthimos’ editor of almost two decades, Yorgos Mavropsaridis earned his first Oscar nomination for The Favourite, and is still working through the singular approach the director has devised for himself. In the case of Lanthimos’ first period piece—an 18th century black comedy set in Queen Anne’s court—the challenge was to “form the specific language” of the film, figuring out what made it unique, while “being true to the ‘rules'” now associated with Lanthimos’ films.

As with so many of his prior pics, The Favourite was refined through the pursuit of equilibrium. Balancing the screen presence and power plays of three remarkable characters—a servant, a duchess and the Queen—the editor also was concerned with elements both historic and modern, aiding his director in achieving a typically singular tone.

Like Lanthimos, Mavropsaridis likes a challenge; he isn’t interested in repeating himself, from film to film.
