Oscars 2018: Margot Robbie (‘I, Tonya’) could make history as an actress and producer

Oscars 2018: Margot Robbie (‘I, Tonya’) could make history as an actress and producer
Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) is a shoo-in for a nomination for Best Actress next week, but she could end up making Oscars history in another category as well as was recently reported by one of our Experts, Sasha Stone (Awards Daily). Robbie is also a producer of the film, so if “I, Tonya” also receives a Best Picture nomination she would be the first actress to receive acting and producing nominations for the same film. After a year that saw actresses Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) all win Emmys as both actors and producers of TV programs, it would be fitting for Robbie’s passion project to go the distance with a pair of historic Oscar nominations.

It has been an incredible year for female stories, both real and fictional. The “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” movements have shined

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Play a Washed-Up Actor in Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Movie, Which Might Cast Tom Cruise Next
Here’s something you might not have noticed: Leonardo DiCaprio hasn’t starred in a movie since he won an Academy Award for his performance in “The Revenant.” That makes his casting in Quentin Tarantino’s next film doubly significant, as the actor’s choosiness brings even more attention to his projects. Mike Fleming Jr., writing for Deadline, has some details on said projects — namely that DiCaprio will be playing an actor whose heyday has long since passed and that the movie is a “‘Pulp Fiction’–esque tapestry of Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders.”

Leonardo DiCaprio's Character Revealed in Tarantino's Next Movie
It was announced last week that Leonardo DiCaprio is officially attached to Quentin Tarantino's Manson era Movie, which takes place in 1969.
