Want a Best Supporting Actress Oscar? Win an Emmy first

Want a Best Supporting Actress Oscar? Win an Emmy first
Laura Dern not only closed out the 2010s as the decade’s final Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner, for “Marriage Story,” but she continued a trend in the category: She’s the fourth consecutive champ who had also recently won an Emmy.

The star took home the Best Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actress Emmy in 2017 for “Big Little Lies,” one of the show’s eight victories that year. Who did she beat to win that? Her Oscar category predecessor Regina King (2018’s “If Beale Street Could Talk”), who was up for “American Crime” for the third straight year. Don’t feel too bad for King, though, since she had already nabbed two consecutive Emmys in that category for the belated ABC anthology series. King then returned the favor in September 2018 — five months before her Oscar win — beating Dern (“The Tale”) for the lead limited series/TV actress Emmy with “Seven Seconds.

Renee Zellweger, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern and Brad Pitt complete second acting sweep with Oscar wins

Renee Zellweger, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern and Brad Pitt complete second acting sweep with Oscar wins
Break out the brooms because Renee Zellweger (“Judy”) and Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker”), Laura Dern (“Marriage Story”) and Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) just completed the second acting sweep ever. The four claimed Oscars on Sunday — lead for Zellweger and Phoenix, supporting for Dern and Pitt — to go with their statuettes from the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA Awards this season.

The first quartet to go 20/20 at all the televised awards was Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) and Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards”) two years ago. Until then, no foursome had done a full sweep since BAFTA became an Oscar precursor in the 2000-01 season, with the previous closest being the class of 2014: Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”), J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”) and Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) went 19/20, thanks to Michael Keaton

4 reasons why Laura Dern (‘Marriage Story’) just won the Oscar
As Gold Derby predicted, the 2020 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress went to … Laura Dern! The veteran actress already prevailed at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, SAG Awards and BAFTAs for her role as divorce attorney Nora Fanshaw in Netflix’s “Marriage Story.” Usually when someone takes home all four of those televised precursors, they have the Oscar in the bag. Dern’s co-nominees Scarlett Johansson (“Jojo Rabbit”), Margot Robbie (“Bombshell”), Florence Pugh (“Little Women”) and Kathy Bates (“Richard Jewell”) simply couldn’t catch up this awards season. Below, see four reasons why Dern just won the Oscar.

2020 Gold Derby Film Awards: ‘Parasite’ wins 6 including Best Picture, Joaquin Phoenix and Lupita Nyong’o take lead prizes
Parasite” has emerged at the 18th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards as the big winner, prevailing 6 times out of its 11 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director (Bong Joon Ho), Best Original Screenplay (Bong and Han Jin Won), Best Ensemble Cast and Best Foreign Language Film. Scroll down to see the rest of this year’s winners in all 22 categories, and watch our complete winners announcement above.

These awards were decided by more than 2,400 registered Gold Derby users, and this is the second year in a row that those savvy movie fans — who probably see more movies every year than some Oscar voters — have picked a foreign-language film in the top category. Last year “Roma” won Best Picture along with three other awards. Now “Parasite’s” total now makes it the most honored foreign-language film in the history of our kudos.

It’s Time for the OscHers: When Will the Academy Honor Female-Driven Storytelling? (Guest Blog)
When I was a child, my best friend, who happened to be a boy, loved “Toy Story,” to the extent that it was literally the only movie we would watch and a good amount of our conversations revolved around the movie and its characters. After one such screening, he asked me which character I would want to be. I was as dumbfounded as a talkative small child could be; it’s not like I didn’t enjoy the movie, I did, but I didn’t relate to or want to be any of the characters. So I responded, Andy’s mom. A character who has few lines and even less screen time. I didn’t see myself in Woody’s fragile masculinity or relate to Buzz’s single-minded exuberance. But my inability to relate to the movie’s main characters never hindered my enjoyment of it, or stopped me from continuing to patron the sequels.

BAFTA Winners List: ‘1917’ Scores 7 Awards, Including Best Film

BAFTA Winners List: ‘1917’ Scores 7 Awards, Including Best Film
Sam Mendes’ “1917” came away as the big winner on Sunday at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards (BAFTA). The World War I drama won in seven of the nine categories in which it was nominated, including Best Film and Best Director.

A big night for “1917” has been long expected by awards prognosticators, as the legacy of World War I has an immense cultural footprint in Great Britain. Along with the aforementioned categories, “1917” won Best British Film — the first award handed out of the evening — along with wins for cinematography, sound, production design and visual effects.

With “1917” not nominated in the acting or screenplay categories, those awards went out to heavily favored contenders in the Oscar race. The acting BAFTAs mirrored their counterparts at the SAG Awards, as Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker”) and Renee Zellweger (“Judy”) won for leading roles, while Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time…

Analysis: Berlinale Lineup From New Chiefs Deserves a Cautious Welcome

Analysis: Berlinale Lineup From New Chiefs Deserves a Cautious Welcome
It’s not that the knives were out, exactly. It’s just that the faint whiff of lame duckishness has hung over the Berlin Film Festival since the announcement of longtime director Dieter Kosslick’s 2019 departure, an impression that intensified during the last two editions, which were generally regarded as among the weakest the festival has recently seen.

So the lineup for 2020, the first Berlinale under the stewardship of ex-Locarno chief Carlo Chatrian and ex-German Films head Mariette Rissenbeek was always going to be subject to the closest scrutiny, not only to assess if the perceived decline in relevance and profile could be reversed, but also for what the selection might tell us about the future direction of a festival in flux. It is not an exaggeration to say that the soul of the Berlinale hangs in the balance – so it’s no small deal that the initial reaction to

Oscar favorites Renee Zellweger, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern and Brad Pitt poised to pull off the second acting sweep ever

Oscar favorites Renee Zellweger, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern and Brad Pitt poised to pull off the second acting sweep ever
Two years ago, Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) and Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards”) made history as the first slate of acting winners to have claimed all five major televised awards: the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild Award, BAFTA and Oscar. And it’s very much looking like they’ll have some company in three weeks with lead frontrunners Renee Zellweger (“Judy”) and Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker”), and supporting favorites Laura Dern (“Marriage Story”) and Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”).

After three consecutive Sundays of awards — the Globes, Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards — Zellweger, Phoenix, Dern and Pitt are three-fifths through their potential sweep, with only the BAFTAs and Oscars remaining, and there is no reason to think any one of them would be upset at either. All four are predicted to win their respective categories at both ceremonies.

4 reasons why Laura Dern has the Oscar in the bag for Netflix’s ‘Marriage Story’
And the Oscar goes to … Laura Dern! You can already hear those words, right? It’s not just me? According to the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards, Dern is the Best Supporting Actress of the year for her role as divorce attorney Nora Fanshaw in Netflix’s “Marriage Story.” She’s also the odds-on favorite to win at the upcoming BAFTA Awards. Usually when someone takes home all four of these televised precursors, they have the Oscar in the bag — just ask recent category winners like Allison Janney for “I, Tonya” (2017) and Viola Davis for “Fences” (2016). Below, see four reasons why I predict Dern will follow this same awards trajectory.

Oscars Frontrunners Emerge in 1917 and Parasite

David Crow Jan 20, 2020

The SAG and PGAs seem to suggest Parasite and 1917 are the Oscar frontrunners for Best Picture, but don't count Tarantino out yet!

Last week brought news of the Academy Award nominations, and all the controversy that comes with them, yet even though the Oscars are not until Feb. 9, the race is evolving every day. Indeed, this past weekend saw two major developments that create at least the perception of competing frontrunners for Best Picture, and maybe Best Director. 1917 won the Producers Guild of America equivalent of Best Picture on Saturday, and Parasite won the same from the Screen Actors Guild.

With the PGA winners announced Saturday and the SAG awards held on Sunday, the weekend created the illusion of dual frontrunners between Sam Mendes’ World War I drama and Bong Joon-ho’s foreign language critical darling. While 1917 always looked like a strong frontrunner due to its conventional

Sex Education Season 2 Premiere Recap: Hands-On Experience Helps Otis Get Back in Business
Sex Education is back exploring the many dalliances of Moordale High, including Otis’ own. Unfortunately for ‘shippers out there, we may be quite a ways from actualizing “Maevis,” so let’s lean into the will-they-won’t-they trope, if we must, and kick off Season 2 with a proper recap.

We could start praising the killer rendition of Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself” that leads the episode or dive into Otis’s newfound, uhh, hobby, but I guess we’d wind up in the same place either way. Our young protagonist is getting a lot of hands-on experience, which should assist his chosen

2020 Ace Eddie Awards preview: Which Oscar nominee for Best Film Editing will win here first?

2020 Ace Eddie Awards preview: Which Oscar nominee for Best Film Editing will win here first?
The American Cinema Editors guild, which hands out its awards on January 17, has a good track record as a preview of the Oscar winner for Best Picture (17 out of the last 29) and a great one for forecasting who will win the Film Editing Oscar (22 of the last 29). Not surprisingly, it is also fairly prescient when it comes to predicting the five Film Editing Oscar slots; all of this year’s Academy Awards nominees contend for this cutting prize.

In 1992, the Eddies went from three to five nominees (matching that of the Oscars) and in 2000 it split the award in two, with five nominees for each of drama and comedy/musical. Over the past 27 years, 120 of the 135 Oscar nominees for Film Editing had first reaped a Golden Eddie bid; that makes for an accuracy rate of 89%.

The film editors divide their awards for editing between dramas and comedies/musicals. Oscar nominees “Ford v Ferrari,
