Battle of the Sams: Will Elliott or Rockwell make the Best Supporting Actor Oscar cut?
Sam is in? But which one? Now that the four televised precursors have spoken, four spots in the Best Supporting Actor Oscar race appear to be secure: Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”), Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) all scored Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA nominations. The last spot has been split between two Sams: Elliott (“A Star Is Born”), who made Critics’ Choice and SAG, and Rockwell (“Vice”), who was shortlisted at the Globes and BAFTA. Assuming the other four are in, which Sam will take the final spot in the Oscar lineup?

Elliott has had a rocky Oscar journey for what many felt was a safe nomination after “A Star Is Born” opened to great reviews and became a box office hit. The Globe snub was surprising, but in hindsight, given how “A Star Is Born

The DGA Awards and Golden Globes have the same director lineup for the 1st time in 8 years
For the first time in eight years, the Directors Guild of America Awards and the Golden Globes have shortlisted the same five directors as the best of the year. Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”), Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”), Peter Farrelly (“Green Book”), Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Adam McKay (“Vice”) received DGA nominations on Tuesday, two days after Cuaron won the Best Director Globe from the same lineup.

The last time DGA and the Globes went 5-for-5 was for the class of 2010. David Fincher (“The Social Network”) won the Globe over Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”), Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”), David O. Russell (“The Fighter”) and Christopher Nolan (“Inception”). But Hooper nabbed the DGA and then the Oscar; the academy only snubbed Nolan in favor of Joel and Ethan Coen (“True Grit”).

Kevin Spacey Wears ‘Retired Since 2017’ Hat While Delivering Pizza to Paparazzi
Kevin Spacey emerged from his mansion in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor neighborhood December 30 to deliver pizza to the paparazzi camped outside hoping to get a glimpse of the disgraced actor as he awaits arraignment on indecent assault/battery charges in January.

In photos published by The Daily Mail, Spacey wears a hat that reads “Retired Since 2017,” referring to how he became persona non grata in Hollywood following actor Anthony Rapp’s allegation that Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was just 14 years old and Spacey was 26. The two-time Oscar winner for “The Usual Suspects” and “American Beauty” was edited out of Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” and replaced by Christopher Plummer.

In a bizarre video Spacey posted to his Twitter feed on Christmas Eve called “Let Me Be Frank…” the actor reprised his character of Frank Underwood from “House of Cards” to refute, in oblique fashion,

Kevin Spacey came under fire for a Christmas Eve video reviving his “House of Cards” antihero Frank Underwood and indirectly responding to the sexual misconduct accusations that derailed the actor’s career last year.

Actress Alyssa Milano called the “Let Me Be Frank” video “creepy” and the timing was especially awkward since it went online within hours of the announcement that the actor will face felony charges in a Massachusetts court early next month after an accusation of sexual assault and battery involving a teenager.

“There is literally no funny tweet that would get me to watch this Kevin Spacey video,” author and ‘Jeopardy!’ champion Ken Jennings tweeted on Monday.

Elissa Karasik’s Snapchat drama “Frat Boy Genius,” and scripts about Matt Drudge and the father of the Williams sisters are at the top of the 2018 version of the Black List.

“Frat Boy Genius” is a fictional story centering on a Snapchat employee, who chronicles the rise of her former Stanford classmate — “preeminent douchebag” and current boss Evan Spiegel.

The list, now in its 13th year, was unveiled on Monday and compiled by Franklin Leonard’s Black List organization. The list of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood is based on suggestions of more than 300 film executives, each of whom contributed the names of up to 10 favorite scripts that were written in, or are somehow uniquely associated with, 2018, and will not have begun principal photography during this calendar year. Scripts had to receive at least seven mentions to be included on the Black List.

11 Best Movies of 2018, From ‘Paddington 2’ to ‘Eighth Grade’ (Photos)

  • The Wrap
How good a movie year was 2018? Netflix got snubbed from the Cannes Film Festival and still managed to give the world “Roma,” “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” “Happy as Lazzaro” and a reconstruction of Orson Welles’ final film (plus two captivating documentaries about its production and restoration). The ubiquitous superhero genre gave us instant classics like “Black Panther” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse,” and even embraced its sillier side with “Teen Titans Go! to the Movies,” “Aquaman” and “Deadpool 2.” This was a year so great that it gave us not one but two juicy lead roles for John C. Reilly.

Paring the year’s highlights down to 25, let alone 10, was no easy feat, but here goes:

#11-25 (alphabetically): “1985,” “Annihilation,” “A Bread Factory,” “Burning,” “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”, “The Favourite,” “First Reformed,” “Lizzie,” “Private Life,” “Shoplifters,” “Skate Kitchen,” “Stan & Ollie,” “A Star Is Born,” “Tully,” “Zama
