Seven actors with other films and TV shows that could boost their Oscar chances: Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Stephan James …
It always helps a potential Academy Award nominee if they feature in a second (or even third) project alongside the one they are hoping to be nominated for. At worst, it helps get their faces out there a bit more and gets a few more Oscar voters to notice them. At best, it helps them garner more votes from the various colleagues they’ve worked with over the two or three projects. It also serves as a timely reminder of their talent, skills, and range.

For example, it helped recent Best Actor nominee Timothee Chalamet that he also appeared in “Hostiles” and “Lady Bird” the same year. Likewise, appearing in Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” (2016) helped Andrew Garfield earn a Best Actor nomination for “Hacksaw Ridge.”

But which potential male acting this year have other projects out that could give them a little boost on their way to the Oscar podium – or,

Green Book wins the PGA. Is Oscar next?

Peter Farrelly accepting the Outstanding Producer for Theatrical Motion Pictures award for "Green Book"

The weekend before the Oscar nominations, Green Book gets another feather in its divisive cap. It took the top PGA prize last night. It was nominated against Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, A Quiet Place, Roma, A Star is Born, and Vice... most but not all of which will transfer to Oscar Best Picture nominations if past statistics hold. In the nine years of the modern Best Picture era (by which we mean 2009 and onward when the field expanded) only three movies have won the PGA that did not repeat at the Oscars: Gravity (2013), The Big Short  (2015), and La La Land  (2016). But it's really only two since Gravity tied at the PGA with 12 Years a Slave (the latter of which did not have to share the Oscar

This evening the 2019 Critics Circle Award were held at the May Fair Hotel in London. Each year the ceremony brings together the finest in modern film and 2019 continues to focus a wider spotlight than the glitzier events.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ cruelty-saoked period drama The Favourite is rightly, well – the favourite for many of the awards. Paweł Pawlikowski’s Cold War joins Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma and Rupert Everett’s The Happy Prince with five nominations apiece.

As well as the winners (indicated in Bold) below we were on the red carpet to speak with the nominees and guests at the event.

2019 Producers Guild Award Winners: The Complete List

The 2019 Oscars get closer and closer with each passing weekend. On Saturday night, many of the biggest Hollywood producers gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. for the 2019 Producers Guild Awards.

Producers Guild Award Goes To “Green Book”

A few hours ago, the Producers Guild of America threw a bit of a monkey-wrench into the awards season works. Giving out their Producers Guild Awards, the top prize went to Green Book, shooting that controversial film to the front of the Oscar race. The PGA voters always catapult their winners towards Best Picture at the Academy Awards, so it was expected that this would occur here too. Well, it probably has, just with a movie that wasn’t the presumptive top tier with producers. Guess that wasn’t the case, so we need to re-evaluate things a bit. I’ll try to make sense of it all below! PGA went with Peter Farrelly’s Green Book over what seemed like more likely choice in Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born and Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma. Green Book wasn’t even necessarily considered next in line, as an upset

Producers Guild Awards 2019: Complete list of PGA winners in all 13 categories
Last year’s Producers Guild Awards told us which movie — “The Shape of Water” — would win the Oscar for Best Picture weeks before the Academy Awards. In fact 20 of the previous winners of this important prize have then gone on to Best Picture victories.

For the 30th annual PGA ceremony slated for Saturday evening, January 19, at the Beverly Hilton, we already know that the top choice will be at the very least a major front-runner for this year’s Oscar. Could it be a blockbuster like “A Star Is Born,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “Black Panther”? Or maybe a critical favorite such as “Roma,” “Green Book” or “The Favourite”?

“A Quiet Place” – Emily Blunt and John Krasinski: Hollywood Film Tribute

Today we are recognizing A Quiet Place, as well as co-writer/director/star John Krasinski, plus co-star Emily Blunt. Our Hollywood Film Tributes recognize films and talent for their excellence in the art of filmmaking. It’s always a good thing when the awards season has a horror film in the mix. The fact that A Quiet Place is so technically well done is just a bonus. Real life couple Blunt and Krasinski have incredible chemistry, while the latter showcases brilliant genre filmmaking chops. It’s a surprising gem that could be on the cusp of some major Academy Award attention… From our rave review all the way back in April: PG-13 is usually the kiss of death for horror. Reliant on jump scares, an absence of gore, and an aim to be just terrifying enough to still work for teenagers, it’s the wheelhouse for horror sequels and throwaway ghost stories.

Toni Collette (‘Hereditary’) and Emily Blunt (‘A Quiet Place’) would defy horror bias to earn Oscar nominations

Toni Collette (‘Hereditary’) and Emily Blunt (‘A Quiet Place’) would defy horror bias to earn Oscar nominations
Even as the Oscars purport to honor the best in film, horror filmmakers and enthusiasts would probably beg to differ. The horror genre has had a lot of trouble getting into the Oscar race, even after 90 years, with a few exceptions here and there. Films like “The Exorcist” (1973), “The Sixth Sense” (1999) and “Get Out” (2017) have broken through and even earned Best Picture nominations — and in the case of horror/thriller “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991) even a win — but all four were undeniable hits with critics and audiences in their respective years, meaning the academy would have looked foolish to ignore them. Actors in horror films have a hard time getting in as well, even if they’re carrying the same level of hefty emotional weight as their peers in traditional drama films. This year, the academy has the potential to honor at least two strong horror performances that have

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Producer Confirms Bryan Singer’s Reason for Leaving, Says ‘No One’ Was Attached to Play Mercury

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Producer Confirms Bryan Singer’s Reason for Leaving, Says ‘No One’ Was Attached to Play Mercury
Bohemian Rhapsody” producer Graham King provided insight into some of the events surrounding the Golden Globe-winning film Saturday at the Producers Guild Awards Nominees Breakfast, including director Bryan Singer’s departure from the film partway through production.

“It’s an unfortunate situation, with like 16, 17 days to go and Bryan Singer just had some issues, his mother was very sick, and he’s the kind of guy that he needs to have 100% focus,” King explained at the Skirball Cultural Center. “He just said, I want to hiatus the film, and deal with what he had going on in his life. And the studio wanted to finish the film. And of course, my job is to protect the film at any cost and that’s what I was there to do.”

Fox terminated Singer under the “pay or play” provision of his contract, sources indicated at the time, due to his repeated failures to show up on the set

Oscar Experts’ Top 8 Best Picture hopefuls we’re underestimating: ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ ‘Eighth Grade,’ ‘The Rider’…

Oscar Experts’ Top 8 Best Picture hopefuls we’re underestimating: ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ ‘Eighth Grade,’ ‘The Rider’…
What films do our 31 Oscar Experts think will be nominated for Best Picture? Under current voting procedures, there could be anywhere between 5 and 10 nominees, but since that system was established in 2011 there have always been either eight or nine contenders, so that’s probably what we can expect this year too.

At Gold Derby you can predict up to the maximum 10 nominees, and our Experts have reached a consensus about what those likeliest 10 films are: front-runners “A Star is Born” and “Roma” followed by “Green Book,” “The Favourite,” “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Vice,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “First Man” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Is there room for any other films to break through? The following eight films are predicted by at least one of our Experts to pull off an Oscar nominations surprise.

‘A Quiet Place’ interviews: John Krasinski, Emily Blunt and more exclusive chats [Watch]
Can “A Quiet Place” become a rare horror film to compete for Best Picture at the Oscars? The box office sleeper hit about a family forced to live in silence to hide from monsters with super-sensitive hearing has earned nominations at the PGA, WGA, SAG, Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Awards, so it’s frighteningly possible. Gold Derby recently spoke with director, star, and co-writer John Krasinski; actress Emily Blunt; screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck; producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form; cinematographer Charlotte Bruus Christensen; and supervising sound editors Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl about their work.

2019 PGA Awards: All the nominees in the 3 film and 10 TV categories for Producers Guild of America prizes

2019 PGA Awards: All the nominees in the 3 film and 10 TV categories for Producers Guild of America prizes
The Producers Guild of America hands out its awards on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019. That is three days before the academy announces the nominations for the Oscars. While the PGA ceremony is not televised, it is an important stop on the road to the Oscars.

The PGA Awards has an enviable track record at presaging the eventual Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards. The guild and the academy have agreed on 20 of the most recent 29 Best Picture champs, including last year’s double winner. “The Shape of Water.”

Since both groups expanded the Best Picture category, the PGA has predicted 70 of the 81 of the Best Picture nominees over the past nine years. Last year the guild went seven for nine in previewing the Oscars line-up: “Call Me by Your Name,” “Dunkirk,” “Get Out,” “Lady Bird,” “The Post,” “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The other four guild nominees were “The Big Sick,

Oscar Experts’ Top 9 dark horse Supporting Actress picks: Michelle Yeoh, Elizabeth Debicki, Linda Cardellini …
There may be no Oscar acting race where the Expert journalists we’ve polled are more divided than Best Supporting Actress. Most of them currently agree on the front-runner, Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), but there are 13 other women they think could be nominated. The four likeliest to join King are Amy Adams (“Vice”), Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz (“The Favourite”) and Claire Foy (“First Man”). But who has the best chance to crash the party?

The following nine women are waiting in the wings, and each of them has a chance to get in according to at least one of our Experts. Who do you think we’re foolishly underestimating?

‘A Quiet Place,’ ‘Roma,’ ‘First Man’ Lead Sound Editing Nominations

“A Quiet Place,” “Roma,” “First Man” and “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” led all films with three nominations each for the 66th Annual Mpse Golden Reel Awards, which were announced on Friday. The awards are handed out by the Motion Picture Sound Editors, a nonprofit organization of professional sound and music editors.

In the category of Feature Film – Effects/Foley, the Golden Reel category that most closely corresponds to the Oscars’ Best Sound Editing category, the nominees were “A Quiet Place,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Black Panther,” “Deadpool 2,” “First Man,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” “Ready Player One,” “Roma” and “The Favourite.” But because the Mpse has so many different sound-editing categories, and because those categories often contain eight or nine nominees, the Golden Reel Awards tend not to be helpful in forecasting Oscar nominees.

In the television categories, the shows that received multiple nominations include “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Vikings,” “Westworld” and “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.
