Top 10 early-bird Best Director Oscar picks: Martin Scorsese (‘The Irishman’) is sitting pretty at No. 1 for now

Top 10 early-bird Best Director Oscar picks: Martin Scorsese (‘The Irishman’) is sitting pretty at No. 1 for now
Frontrunners are already forming for the Oscar Best Actor race, according to early combined predictions at Gold Derby. While most films in contention have not yet been released, enough teaser trailers are out there, ranging from “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and “The Irishman” to “Little Women” and “Ford v Ferrari” to provide some sense of what at least feels like a worthy contender. We’ve confirmed category placements with studios or campaigners, but — as awards season veterans know — such labels can change later. And once the fall film fests commence, the standings will likely rapidly shift.

Here are the current top 10 Best Director picks on the Gold Derby site, in order, as of Aug. 21:

1. Martin Scorsese: Marty and mobsters are like milk and cookies — most moviegoers just can’t resist. That this is his ninth collaboration with Robert De Niro and their first since 1995’s “Casino” is an event indeed.

Venom 2 Reunites Director Andy Serkis with Oscar-Winning Cinematographer Robert Richardson
So far, the sequel to last year's comic book anti-hero adventure Venom is shaping up rather intriguingly. Following on from the recent news that Black Panther star and motion capture maestro Andy Serkis will be sitting in the director's chair, we now know who will be working their magic on the cinematography for Venom 2, and it is another very interesting choice.

The three time Academy Award Winning Robert Richardson will be joining Serkis on this gooey comic book endeavour, as our hero Eddie Brock returns with his symbiotic companion to fight crime, take names, and more than likely eat a few heads along the way. Richardson has worked a vast array of critically acclaimed, wonderful films such as Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island, Oliver Stone's biographical wartime drama Born on the Fourth of July and has worked in collaboration with director Quentin Tarantino on various projects including Inglourious Basterds

The Top Five Underrated Martin Scorsese Films

Jackson Ball with five underrated Martin Scorsese films…

In terms of auteur directors, there are few who are as revered and as admired as Martin Scorsese. The Academy Award-winning filmmaker has carved out a career spanning over 50 years, filled with some the most influential American movies in history. From his intense psychological character studies, to his notable contribution to the gangster genre, to his politically and religiously charged dramas, Scorsese’s films have rarely been far from either controversy or accolades.

With that in mind, it is easy to neglect some of his lesser appreciated films. We’ve all discussed at great length the intricacies of Taxi Driver or Raging Bull, but when every other film is a masterpiece it means that some other efforts fall by the wayside in comparison.

With such a rich back-catalogue, it’s always possible to overlook the odd cinematic gem. So to right this wrong,

Robert De Niro Currently in Talks to Join Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese's Adaptation of Killers Of The Flower Moon

It looks like Martin Scorsese may have his dream team in his next movie. After having worked with Robert De Niro on many of his classics like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and Casino, they reunited to make the upcoming film The Irishman after not having worked together in nearly twenty-five years. And they might make it two in a row with Scorsese’s upcoming adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon. Another Scorsese favorite, Leonardo DiCaprio, is already cast in the film, so the two together would make a pretty special film for the director. DiCaprio and De Niro have worked together before in films such as This Boy’s Life and Marvin’s Room, but have never collaborated under Scorsese’s direction.

The film is based on the nonfiction book by David Grann, with a script by Eric Roth. The publisher, Penguin Random House, describes the book as

First Lord Of The Rings Teaser Reveals The Team Behind Amazon’s Show

No one knows Middle-earth quite like Peter Jackson does, so it’s not hard to see why Amazon Studios was interested in roping the Kiwi director in for their lavish Lord of the Rings TV series.

The award winning filmmaker has already gone on record though to say that he’s happy that he’s no longer tied up with Middle-earth and all of its many characters and storylines. And, frankly, after putting together six fantasy blockbusters based on Tolkien’s work, you can hardly blame him.

But even without Jackson’s involvement, Amazon has still managed to assemble quite an impressive creative team for the series, from Game of Thrones producers and writers to folks who worked on major motion pictures like The Last Jedi and The Aviator. Suffice it to say, it’s an impressive roster of talent, and you can find the complete list, along with a brief promo teasing their roles,
