Bradley Cooper Needs To Get Hit With A Steel Chair At The Golden Globes

We are only a few weeks away from the 76th Golden Globes which will air Live on NBC on Sunday, January 6th@ 8Pm. I’m not really fan of award ceremonies, but I will be watching. The talk of the town has been the announcement that Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut film “A Star is Born” has been nominated for several awards including a nod for Cooper for Best Director, and Lady Gaga for Best Actress in a Motion Picture.The film is good, very good in fact, and made my fiance cry, as well as, a few other ladies sitting in the same row as us also shed a few tears. Maybe I had a tear in my eye too, but I will not admit that here.

Bradley Cooper has long been rumored to play the lead in “Pandemonium”. Which is a film that will tell the story of

Jennifer Lopez Says She and Will Smith Almost Starred in A Star Is Born: 'It Just Never Took Off'

Jennifer Lopez Says She and Will Smith Almost Starred in A Star Is Born: 'It Just Never Took Off'
Before Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper dazzled audiences in A Star Is Born, Jennifer Lopez and Will Smith once considered tackling the lead roles.

The 49-year-old Second Act actress spoke about Cooper’s directorial debut to Extra saying she and Smith had “talked about it and talked about developing the script.”

“It just never took off,” she explained. “Projects are like that.”

Despite the missed opportunity, Lopez said she was “really proud of Bradley” for “directing his first film and doing it.”

“We’re friends, and watching Lady Gaga do her thing in the movie, it’s just great,” she added.

Does sneaking ‘A Star Is Born’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ into the drama categories at the Globes boost their Oscar chances? History says yes

One of the oddities of this year’s Golden Globes nominees? That Fox’s Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Warner’s “A Star Is Born” requested to compete in the drama categories and not as a musical or comedy selection.

After all, the 1976 version of the much-told showbiz saga starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson was labeled as a musical and went on to grab Globes for both leads as well as the film itself. But those prizes did not translate into Oscar attention, with only the movie’s signature song, “Evergreen,” earning a statuette.

However, their winning dramatic counterparts that year – Peter Finch and Faye Dunaway in “Network” — would not only make the Oscar ballot cut, but would go on to win Academy Awards as well. Same thing happened to the year’s drama champ, “Rocky,” which won the Best Picture Oscar.

SAG Awards predictions: ‘A Star Is Born’ and ‘The Favourite’ will be 18th and 19th films to get 4 nominations

SAG Awards predictions: ‘A Star Is Born’ and ‘The Favourite’ will be 18th and 19th films to get 4 nominations
“Four” will be the magic number for two films at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Per our combined odds, “A Star Is Born” and “The Favourite” are predicted to receive four bids on Wednesday, which would make the them the 18th and 19th films to pull off that haul.

Both are in our predicted top five — in the top two spots — in the ensemble lineup, along with the casts of “Vice,” “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Widows.”

The Favourite” is expected to earn individual bids for leading lady Olivia Colman, who’s in third place, and supporting stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, who are in third and fourth, respectively. After Sam Elliott was snubbed by the Golden Globes, “A Star Is Born” is projected to rebound with a supporting mention for him, to go with lead nominations for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. Of the trio, Cooper is forecasted to win,

Will the cast of ‘Widows’ be able to pull off a SAG nomination?

Will the cast of ‘Widows’ be able to pull off a SAG nomination?
Steve McQueen’s “Widows” hasn’t had a great start to awards season so far, getting shut out at the Golden Globe Awards. It did receive one Critics’ Choice Awards nomination on Monday, in Best Ensemble. And with the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations right around the corner on Wednesday, the film could pick up another ensemble bid.

The “Widows” cast could benefit from its size, considering SAG voters’ tendency to award bigger casts with the their ensemble prize. All the better if it’s a high-caliber cast like that of “Widows,” which includes Viola Davis, Carrie Coon, Elizabeth Debicki, Robert Duvall, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Liam Neeson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jackie Weaver.

Not to mention, the impressive cast includes many TV stars: Coon, Davis (“How to Get Away With Murder”), Debicki (“The Night Manager”) and Henry (“Atlanta”). In fact, Davis even took home two

'The Favourite' leads awards race with 14 Critics' Choice nominations
Yorgos Lanthimos comedy edges Vice and A Star Is Born, while Escape at Dannemora and The Assassination of Gianni Versace did well in the TV section

Period comedy The Favourite has solidified its position as an early leader in the awards race after securing 14 nominations in the Critics’ Choice awards. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and starring Olivia Colman as Queen Anne, The Favourite is up for best picture, best comedy, best director and best original screenplay, as well as receiving comprehensive nods for its cast: best actress and best comedy actress for Colman, best supporting actress for Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, and best ensemble.

The Critics’ Choice awards, given by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, are considered an accurate barometer of Oscar tastes: The Shape of Water took four awards here last year, when 17 out of 19 common categories had the same winner. It comes after last week’s somewhat

2019 Oscars scorecard: ‘Roma,’ Ethan Hawke and Regina King had a winning weekend

2019 Oscars scorecard: ‘Roma,’ Ethan Hawke and Regina King had a winning weekend
Roma” won Best Picture from five regional critics groups over the weekend: Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Toronto. As Alfonso Cuaron‘s intimate memoir had already been singled out by critics in New York and the nation’s capital, it now has a commanding lead as awards season kicks into high gear. And Cuaron is also piling up wins for both his direction and cinematography. (Scroll down to see the full scorecard to date.)

Only two critics groups to date have gone in a different direction for Best Picture with the Atlanta scribes opting for “The Favourite” and those in Detroit endorsing “Eighth Grade.” But be warned: last year, “Get Out” reigned as the leader among the critics groups with nine wins versus seven for “Lady Bird” while eventual Best Picture winner “The Shape of Water” was tops with just two groups.

From ‘The Favourite’ to ‘Green Book’: Oscar Contenders Jockey for Box Office Dominance

  • Variety
They may be triumphs of filmmaking, but 2018’s crop of awards season contenders have been a mixed bag when it comes to box office returns.

Sadly, that’s become something of a tradition — as much a staple of the Oscar race as Peggy Siegal luncheons or Meryl Streep. Last year’s best picture nominees had the lowest grosses in six years. This year’s slate of favorites could turn that around as a number of blockbusters seem to have a serious chance at Oscar glory. At the same time, a handful of indie titles have struggled to gain momentum at the specialty box office.

A number of expected champs, including “Vice,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” and “Mary Poppins Returns” have yet to hit theaters, though the trio have already picked up plenty of plaudits. “Vice,” Adam McKay’s scathing look at former vice president Dick Cheney, surprised awards sages

Black Panther, The Favourite, and More Lead the 2019 Critics' Choice Awards Nominees

This year's Critics' Choice Awards won't take place until the big show airs live on The CW on Sunday, Jan. 13., but in the meantime, the TV and movie nominations have been announced! The Broadcast Film Critics and Television Journalists Associations have bestowed films like A Star Is Born, The Favourite, and Roma with nods, while The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Killing Eve, and The Americans reigned on the TV front.

As in the past, the Critics' Choice Awards have long been considered one of the most reliable predictors of which films, actors, directors, and more take home Oscars. For instance, last year saw The Shape of Water win best picture and best director for Guillermo del Toro, and both won again at the Academy Awards not long after. The same can be said for Sam Rockwell, Frances McDormand, Allison Janney, and Gary Oldman, who all won Oscars for their performances as well as Critics' Choice trophies.
