  1. Oscars 2018: Best Makeup & Hairstyling

    The shortlist: “Bright” “Darkest Hour” “Ghost in the Shell” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” “I, Tonya” “Victoria & Abdul” “Wonder” The nominees will be announced on January 23.
  2. Oscars 2018: Best Makeup & Hairstyling

    And the winners are... as noted above: two awards for Darkest Hour and one award apiece for Pitch Perfect 3, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and I, Tonya. Darkest Hour is the only winner that has an Oscar nomination in this category. Interestingly, Wonder -- which is also Oscar-nominated -- did not win any of the three guild awards that it was up for.
  3. I Can Only Imagine

    Links to our threads on Moms' Night Out (2014) and Woodlawn (2015). We don't seem to have a thread on October Baby (2011). - - - Faith-Based Film ‘I Can Only Imagine’ With Dennis Quaid, Cloris Leachman And Trace Adkins Eyes Spring 2018 Release EXCLUSIVE: I Can Only Imagine, the next faith-based film directed by Jon and Andrew Erwin’s (Moms’ Night Out, Woodlawn), is now pegged to be released next Spring (2018). The fourth film from the brothers is based on the popular Christian song of the same name by Bart Millard and is based on his life. Dennis Quaid joined the cast yesterday and it also stars Trace Adkins (who was also in their film Mom’s Night Out) and Cloris Leachman. Broadway’s J. Michael Finley (Les Miserables) is making his screen debut in the film. It will be interesting to see if the film, based on the story behind the song, will translate to the big screen. The fan base is certainly there. Millard’s song has topped multiple mainstream and Christian radio charts to become the most played Christian radio single in history, according to Billboard. In fact, I Can Only Imagine became the first Christian song digital download to be certified double platinum and boosted sales of the album, Almost There, to near triple platinum. . . .

  5. Oscars 2018: Best Costume Design

    And the winners are... The Shape of Water, Wonder Woman, and I, Tonya -- only the first of which is even *nominated* for the Oscar.
  6. Oscars 2018: Best Animated Feature

    And the winner is... Coco.
  7. Oscars 2018: Best Animated Feature

    The qualifying films (with the ones I've seen in bold): “The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales” “Birdboy: The Forgotten Children” “The Boss Baby” “The Breadwinner” “Captain Underpants The First Epic Movie” “Cars 3” “Cinderella the Cat” “Coco” “Despicable Me 3” “The Emoji Movie” “Ethel & Ernest” “Ferdinand” “The Girl without Hands” “In This Corner of the World” “The Lego Batman Movie” “The Lego Ninjago Movie” “Loving Vincent” “Mary and the Witch’s Flower” “Moomins and the Winter Wonderland” “My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea” “Napping Princess” “A Silent Voice” “Smurfs: The Lost Village” “The Star” “Sword Art Online: The Movie - Ordinal Scale” “Window Horses The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming” This year marks the first time that the nominees in this category will be chosen by the *entire* Academy, rather than the animation branch. This means the category will probably be deeply compromised this year, because when it comes to animation, the average Academy member is a moron who is only interested in stuff that grosses hundreds of millions of dollars -- if it's popular, it must be good, right? and if they haven't seen it for themselves already, then it probably wasn't worth seeing to begin with, right? To put this another way: in previous years, I would have thought that Loving Vincent was a lock for a nomination in this category. This year, however, I'm not so sure.
  8. Oscars 2018: Best Documentary Feature
