Saoirse Ronan movies: 10 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Lady Bird,’ ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘Atonement’
Saoirse Ronan will turn 25 on April 12, 2019. It is quite the accomplishment that she has achieved three Oscar nominations at such a young age. Only Jennifer Lawrence has been able to match that number in her early twenties. Ronan was first nominated as a child actress at the age of 13 as Best Supporting Actress for the film “Atonement.” She has recently received two Best Actress nominations for “Brooklyn” and “Lady Bird” although she has yet to take home a trophy.

‘The Goldfinch’ Adaptation First Look Promises Faithful Treatment of Donna Tartt’s Beloved Novel

It’s not that Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 2014 novel “The Goldfinch” is unfilmable, but it’s more a question of, well, who would want to? Tartt’s time- and place-spanning epic ostensibly follows one spectacularly ill-fated boy (or is he?) across a tragic childhood and into an adulthood marked by love, loss, and a little bit of classic art theft. It’s wonderful on the page, but it’s also meaty, dense, twisty, and complicated. In short, tough stuff for a 120-minute runtime.

And yet “Brooklyn” and “Boy A” filmmaker John Crowley took on the task of turning it into a feature film, another complex adaptation for a director who excels at them. Bolstered by a script from Peter Straughan and featuring a stacked cast that includes Ansel Elgort as lead Theo, Oakes Fegley as the younger version of him, Sarah Paulson, Nicole Kidman, Finn Wolfhard, Luke Wilson, Aneurin Barnard,

Actors Who Haven’t Won an Oscar

Actors Who Haven’t Won an Oscar
After Olivia Colman upset the heavily favored Glenn Close to win the best actress Oscar on Sunday, Close became the new record-holder among actresses for most Oscar nominations without a win.

Colman gave a gracious acceptance speech, admitting she wished the veteran actress took home the big prize: “Glenn Close, you’ve been my idol for so long and this is not how I wanted it to be.”

Close now has seven nominations and no wins for “The Wife,” “Albert Nobbs,” “Fatal Attraction,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “The World According to Garp,” “The Big Chill,” and “The Natural.”

Close had been tied with the late Thelma Ritter and the late Deborah Kerr for most nominations without a win, with six. On Sunday, Amy Adams joined Ritter and Kerr for having six nominations without a win following her loss for “Vice.” She was previously nominated for “Junebug,” “Doubt,” “The Fighter,” “The Master,” and “American Hustle.

Which of the Adapted Screenplay nominees has the best chance to win according to recent Oscar history?
A screenplay could be adapted from many different forms of existing works — everything from a novel or a memoir to a newspaper article.

Experts predict all the Best Picture nominees will win at the Oscars for first time since 2015

Experts predict all the Best Picture nominees will win at the Oscars for first time since 2015
In the first nine years of the expanded Best Picture race at the Oscars, there has only been one ceremony that saw the entire roster of contenders each winning at least one Academy Award. That was in 2015 when “Birdman” was the big winner among the eight nominees, with four awards. Our experts think that this will happen again this year, with “Roma” also taking home four Oscars including Best Picture.

As per our official racetrack odds, these journalists who cover Hollywood year-round are predicting that three other Best Picture nominee will win a pair of awards and four will take home a single Oscar.

Roma,” which is tied for first place among the Best Picture contenders with 10 bids, is predicted to win these four races: Best Picture, Best Director (Alfonso Cuaron), Best Cinematography and Best Foreign Language Film.

Audience for Best Picture Nominees Most Diverse in Years, Report Shows

  • Variety
Theatergoers for Academy Awards best picture-nominated films have become younger and more diverse over the past four years, a report released exclusively to Variety showed.

Movio, a Vista Group company which specializes in cinema marketing data analytics, said the changes in demographic shifts correspond to the best picture lineup becoming more diverse since the 2015 Oscars, when the #OscarsSoWhite controversy arose after all 20 of the acting nominations went to Caucasians.

“Our results indicate that the audience attending films nominated for best picture for the 2019 Oscars represents the youngest and most racially diverse best picture audience over the past several years,” the report said. “Much of this is due to the inclusion of and box office success of ‘Black Panther’ in the nominations.”

The other best picture nominees are “BlacKkKlansman,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “The Favourite,” “Green Book,” “Roma,” “A Star Is Born,” and “Vice.” The 91st Academy Awards will take place on Sunday.

2019 Writers Guild Awards: WGA is limited as guidepost to predicting Oscars

2019 Writers Guild Awards: WGA is limited as guidepost to predicting Oscars
Don’t look for “The Favourite” to win at the WGA Awards on Sunday (Feb. 17). Only scripts written under the guild’s guidelines or those of several international partners are allowed to vie for these awards, which ruled out this Oscar frontrunner for Best Original Screenplay. That limited eligibility means that these rewards are not the most reliable barometer of the eventual Oscar nominees and winners. Indeed, in the past 10 years only 65 of the WGA nominees have numbered among the 100 screenplays that reaped Academy Awards bids.

The original screenplay WGA nominees are: “Eighth Grade,” “Green Book,” “A Quiet Place,” “Roma” and “Vice.” The Oscar frontrunner, “The Favourite,” was ineligible with the WGA. The guild picks “Eighth Grade” and “A Quiet Place” didn’t make the grade with the writers branch of the academy, which rounded out the race with “First Reformed.” Without having to face off against “The Favourite” at the WGA,

Sundance 2019 Hot Titles: Will Buyers Respond To Bounty Of Promising Films With Strong Inclusion Elements?
The 2019 Sundance Film Festival brings more questions than usual.

Sellers believe they have brought the goods, but with few new buyers on the horizon, several more wavering, questions of whether Netflix and Amazon will be aggressive as they make their own content, and the influx of streaming services another year or two away, will there be enough of an appetite to fuel the all-nighter auctions that have made this festival exciting and exhausting?

Will Bruce Springsteen come to Park City for the premiere of Blinded By The Light, the coming of age of a Muslim teen directed by Bend it Like Beckham’s Gurinder Chada, with 16 Springsteen songs providing the narrative backbeat? And for that matter, what about Wu-Tang Clan for the debut of the four episodes of the limited series Of Mics and Men, about that storied band’s history, or the David Crosby docu Remember My Name that premieres in competition this weekend?

Sundance Hot Titles List: 13 Buzzy Films That Have Buyers Talking
There’s a good reason that much of Hollywood braves the thin mountain air each year to make the trek to the Sundance Film Festival, and it’s not to check out the nearby ski slopes. The annual launch of the indie film gathering brings with it the possibility of discovering the next big thing in moviemaking. Sundance has played a critical role in the careers of such A-list talent as Ava DuVernay, Ryan Coogler, David O. Russell, and Quentin Tarantino, and has hosted the premieres of such classics as “Reservoir Dogs,” “Sex, Lies, and Videotape,” and “Manchester by the Sea.”

The prospect of finding the rare indie movie that can break out of the arthouse has inspired a lot of all-night bidding wars over the years. Sometimes those frenzied negotiations and massive deals pay off, as was the case with “Brooklyn” or “Fruitvale Station.” In other instances, studios end

15 Biggest Box Office Hits to Premiere at Sundance, From ‘The Blair Witch Project’ to ‘Hereditary’ (Photos)
While Sundance is always a big market for distributors to pick up buzzy indie titles they hope can make a splash with a niche audience or even find its way through a long awards season, sometimes the huge bucks plopped down on some of these films don’t always translate into a profit at the box office. There have been a handful though that have broken out of Sundance to become hits with critics and audiences alike. Below are the all time highest grossing movies at the domestic box office that made their premiere in Park City at Sundance.

15. “A Walk in the Woods” (2015) – $29.5 million

It should come as no surprise that Robert Redford premiered a movie he starred in at at his own festival. But he also proved that he still carries some box office clout. The film, acquired by Broad Green Pictures, was behind only “Dope,” which was picked up for $18 million,

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Has a New Home, But Will It Have Better TV Ratings?
After seven months off duty, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” moves into its new precinct, NBC, tonight.

But with the comedy’s channel switch for its sixth season — which came about following serious fan outcry that led NBC to save the series last May, less than one day after Fox gave it the ax — comes the question: Will the Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher-led sitcom see better Nielsen numbers when it starts working NBC’s 9 o’clock Thursday shift?

NBC placed “Nine-Nine” on what has in recent seasons been considered the network’s “comedy night,” which in the fall included a lineup of “Will & Grace,” “Superstore” and the now-“concluded” freshman series “I Feel Bad.” But with a new midseason schedule in place, Dwayne Johnson’s new series “The Titan Games” at 8 p.m. will serve as the lead-in for “Nine-Nine” tonight, with the midseason return of Mike Schur’s “The Good Place

Screen Ireland Chief James Hickey to Step Down in June
James Hickey is leaving Screen Ireland after serving two terms as its chief executive. Hickey signed on for a second three-year term in the role in 2016 and said, Thursday, that he will leave when that term expires in June.

In a letter to the industry Hickey wrote that it was the right time for a transition to a new chief executive. He highlighted the tough early part of his tenure as the financial crisis hit the business in Ireland and noted an increase in Screen Ireland funding since that point and a government commitment to €200 million ($230 million) in funding in the ten years to 2027.

“The reputation of our creative talent in film in Ireland and on the world stage has grown and strengthened over the years,” Hickey said. “Feature films such as ‘Song of the Sea,’ ‘Room,’ ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘The Lobster’ and ‘The Breadwinner’ have garnered international recognition and audiences for Irish filmmakers.
