Cristina Ramos is shocked she beat Darci Lynne Farmer on ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’

Cristina Ramos still can’t believe she is going to be in the final of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” This rock opera singer, who’d won “Spain’s Got Talent” in 2016, readily admits in a post-show interview that she was shocked when she won more votes from the superfans than ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer.

After all, that teen talent had won “Agt” in 2017 and has gone on to headline her own live show as well as a Christmas special that earned high ratings for NBC. While Darci Lynn was well-known to the voters, who are long-time viewers of “America’s Got Talent,” Cristina was a complete mystery. And, as she explains in the video above, that might have been what gave her the edge.

While Darci Lynn opened the show on Monday, Cristina was the fifth of the 10 acts to perform. Before she sang, she told the judges

Darci Lynne Farmer on her shocking elimination from ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’

Darci Lynne Farmer on her shocking elimination from ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’
Even after her shocking elimination from “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” Darci Lynne Farmer kept smiling. In her post-show interview, this singing ventriloquist thanks the judges for the compliments and her puppet pal Oscar the Mouse chimes in with his special message for Mel B.

Remember, it was this one-time Spice Girl that discovered Darci Lynne back in 2017. She gave this Oklahoma girl the Golden Buzzer that sent her straight through to the live shows. She ended up winning season 12 of “Agt” and, as Darci Lynne explains in the video above, her life has been a rollercoaster ever since.

One of the dips was, no doubt, her loss to rock opera singer Cristina Ramos on episode two of this spin-off show. That 2016 winner of “Spain’s Got Talent” wowed the crowd with her over-the-top rendition of the Queen classic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” She earned won more votes from the superfans

Mahershala Ali (‘Green Book’) could win a 2nd Oscar faster than any actor in 24 years

Mahershala Ali (‘Green Book’) could win a 2nd Oscar faster than any actor in 24 years
Mahershala Ali is comfortably out front to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for “Green Book” after his wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards. But there remains a big unanswered question about this race: will the academy want to reward him again so soon? It has been just two years since he won for “Moonlight.” That’s not unprecedented, of course, but you have to go back decades to find actors who claimed two Oscars so quickly.

No one has won multiple acting Oscars in two years or less in any category since Tom Hanks went back-to-back in the Best Actor race: “Philadelphia” (1993) and “Forrest Gump” (1994) — that’s 24 years ago. You have to go back a lot farther than that to find such a quick repeat specifically in the Best Supporting Actor race. It happened to Jason Robards 41 years ago when he won two in a

Like father, like son, John David Washington could mirror Denzel’s Oscar precursor run

Like father, like son, John David Washington could mirror Denzel’s Oscar precursor run
BlacKkKlansman” star John David Washington is trying to follow in dad Denzel‘s footsteps and make them the second father-son duo to receive acting Oscar nominations after Kirk and Michael Douglas. If the younger Washington does make the Best Actor shortlist, he’ll definitely prove to be his father’s kid, because he’ll have done so with the same major precursor nominations his dad had last year.

John David, who inherited his pops’ voice in addition to his acting skills, earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations for his performance as Detective Ron Stallworth, but he was skipped over at Critics’ Choice and BAFTA. Denzel only had Globe and SAG bids under his belt last year en route to an Oscar nomination for “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” That was actually the second time Denzel made the Oscar five with that combo since BAFTA became a precursor 18 years

Oscars: Jack Mathews surveys the Best Picture field

Oscars: Jack Mathews surveys the Best Picture field
A Star is Born” leads the pack in total guild nominations to date by a healthy margin of 11 to the eight for “BlackKlansman” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with only the sound editors yet to be heard from. But its own star has been fading with the televised Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards. It won Best Song at both and Lady Gaga tied for Best Actress with Glenn Close (“The Wife”) at the Critics Choice. That’s it.

So, yeah, it’s had a lock on nominations with all of the major guilds, but it no longer feels like the movie to beat for a Best Picture Oscar and its director and co-star Bradley Cooper is a long shot in both categories.

Every movie on the leader board has issues that handicappers can use in making their arguments for and against, but the thing I believe is costing “A Star is Born

Dua Lipa’s New Rules for 2019

Dua Lipa’s New Rules for 2019
What are Dua Lipa’s new rules for 2019? There’s just one: “Working really hard to get my new album out. Those are the only rules that I’m gonna be living by. I’m just going to be in the studio making sure that I come back with some fun stuff for everyone.”

That sounds about right. The London pop phenom blew up with hits like “New Rules” and “Idgaf,” full of disco glitz and tough talk about her post-break-up regimen for taking control and leaving that ex behind.

Christian Bale knocks Bradley Cooper out of top spot in Best Actor Oscar predictions

Christian Bale knocks Bradley Cooper out of top spot in Best Actor Oscar predictions
No. 2 has become No. 1. Christian Bale, who’s already won a Golden Globe and two Critics’ Choice Awards for his performance as Dick Cheney in “Vice,” is now the Best Actor Oscar frontrunner in our latest predictions.

On the heels of his Best Actor and Best Actor in a Comedy victories at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards, Bale has inched past Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) with 19/5 odds to 39/10. However, our Experts are split between the two: 11 are backing Bale and 12 have Cooper. Bale has the edge with our Editors (four to one) and our Top 24 Users (10 to seven).

Cooper had been the frontrunner the entire season, but he hasn’t claimed a major prize yet. At the Globes, he lost the drama category to Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) before falling to Bale at Critics’ Choice. “A Star Is Born” has underperformed so far in general, with just twin

Laura Dern Had a Jurassic Park Reunion at the Critics' Choice, Because Life, Uh, Finds a Way

Laura Dern Had a Jurassic Park Reunion at the Critics' Choice, Because Life, Uh, Finds a Way
Jurassic Park was "alive" at the 2019 Critics' Choice Awards. That's according to Laura Dern, who shared a sweet reunion and stopped to take a selfie with Joe Mazzello at the event. Though it might be hard to tell because he's a full adult now - time flies, huh? - Mazzello portrayed Tim Murphy, grandson to Jurassic Park's kooky creator, in the beloved '90s film. The actor would go on to appear in the sequel, while Dern had a brief appearance in the third installment. Mazzello shared the same selfie on his Instagram, and described it as the highlight of his night.

Dern was at the award show because she was nominated for best actress in a movie made for TV or limited series for her role in The Tale. Mazzello, meanwhile, was in attendance with the Bohemian Rhapsody cast, as he portrayed Queen bassist John Deacon in the film.

Is ‘A Star Is Born’ in danger of being the 6th film to go 0-4 at the SAG Awards?

Is ‘A Star Is Born’ in danger of being the 6th film to go 0-4 at the SAG Awards?
A Star Is Born” leads the Screen Actors Guild Awards with four nominations and is one of 18 films to get four bids. But might it walk away empty-handed? If it does, it’d be the sixth movie to go 0-4.

The film is up for ensemble, lead actor for Bradley Cooper, lead actress for Lady Gaga and supporting actor for Sam Elliott, but it’s currently not projected to win any of them in on our combined odds. “A Star Is Born” is in second to “Black Panther” in ensemble, while Christian Bale (“Vice”) and Glenn Close (“The Wife”) have leapfrogged over one-time favorites Cooper and Gaga following their Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice victories. And Elliott is in third place, trailing Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Globe and Critics’ Choice champ Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”).

Hey Rami Malek, get your SAG Awards acceptance speech ready

Hey Rami,

Apologies that I have to use Gold Derby in order to get this message to you. I don’t have your email address and we’re not friends on Facebook.

I know that you’re peeking at your odds here, just like most of this year’s film contenders are. So I know that you’ll read this. (Lady Gaga – you can move on now. This doesn’t concern you.)

First of all, congratulations on your victory at the Golden Globes. You delivered the most eloquent and gracious speech.

Second, sorry about the loss at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Even though I predicted you to win, I’m not surprised that you didn’t. Those cranky critics just can’t handle the fact that “Bohemian Rhapsody” has turned into an international phenomenon, in spite of their assessment that the film is just so-so. Rewarding you would have meant admitting that they were wrong,

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Star Rami Malek on the Most Fun Scene to Shoot – And No, It Wasn’t Live Aid (Video)

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Star Rami Malek on the Most Fun Scene to Shoot – And No, It Wasn’t Live Aid (Video)
Days on the “Bohemian Rhapsody” set were filled with wonderful (if not tumultuous) moments for Rami Malek, but his fondest memory was of filming the Rio de Janeiro concert near the end of production.

“The most fun was towards the end — there’s that scene in Rio, where Freddie is leading the audience and kind of conducting them,” Malek told TheWrap’s editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman at TheWrap’s screening series in Los Angeles last week. “That was the last scene I shot, and I got to conduct in front of the camera, and take a bow. At that point, I had become extremely flexible, so my bow felt really good from take one. And it came to about take four when I thought, what is going on that Dexter is asking me to keep bowing and bowing? I come up from take five and the entire crew has surrounded me

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ now 11 for 12 after missing visual effects nomination, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves up to second

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ now 11 for 12 after missing visual effects nomination, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves up to second
We just heard from the Visual Effects Society with their nominees for the best of the year. These wizards of wonder were the 12th of 13 guilds and societies to weigh in with their choices following the actors, art directors, casting directors, cinematographers, costume designers, directors, film editors, makeup artists & hairstylists, producers, sound mixers and writers. (The sound editors don’t chime in till the end of the month.)

The Ves brought an end to the streak for “A Star is Born” that had seen it reap bids from the first 11 precursor prizes to reveal their rosters. Among the other leading Oscar contenders, “Bohemian Rhapsody” reaped a bid for it supporting visual effects and now moves into a tie for second place on the overall list with “BlacKkKlansman” with nominations from eight guilds.

Black Panther,” which was snubbed by the Ves remains one back, having been recognized by seven groups as

2019 Visual Effects Society Awards nominations: Oscar frontrunner ‘Black Panther’ snubbed, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ leads

2019 Visual Effects Society Awards nominations: Oscar frontrunner ‘Black Panther’ snubbed, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ leads
Black Panther” was shut out of the nominations for the Visual Effects Society Awards on Tuesday January 15. While this blockbuster won’t be in contention at the 17th annual edition of these kudos, it is the overwhelming frontrunner to win the Oscar for Best Visual Effect. While being snubbed by the Ves is a setback, the society only previews about three-quarters of the eventual Oscar nominees.

The closest rival to “Black Panther” at the Academy Awards — “Avengers: Infinity War” — reaped a leading six nominations from the Ves. Among these is a bid for Best Effects Simulations for the depiction of Wakanda, the home of Black Panther. “Ready Player One” reaped five bids as did “Incredibles 2” over on the animation side.

Among the other nominations for “Avengers: Infinity War” is the Ves equivalent of the Best Picture race — visual effects in a feature motion picture — along with “Christopher Robin,”“Ready Player One,

Inside an Oscar Season of Anger

  • Variety
The furor that has flared around virtually every major Oscar rival this year has turned the ongoing awards season into a particularly ugly one. As the proceedings continue to devolve into a fit of collective rage aimed at any and all, it’s worth a recap.

Just before the season kicked off at the Venice and Telluride film festivals, the first fracas struck, though it ultimately amounted to little more than a filmmaker beef. On Twitter, outspoken “Sorry to Bother You” director Boots Riley slammed “BlacKkKlansman” for inaccuracies, and accused director Spike Lee of promulgating disingenuous pro-law-enforcement propaganda. A separate Twitter confrontation with screenwriter Charlie Wachtel escalated until the “BlacKkKlansman” scribe deleted his entire Twitter account. The whole spat lasted at least until the Governors Awards in November, where Riley said Lee shouted to him, “I’m Miles Davis, you’re Chet Baker!!!”

The tweet I'm quoting shows as unavailable,
