Oscars: ‘Black Panther’ Leads Best Picture Nominees to Near-Record Box Office Grosses

Oscars: ‘Black Panther’ Leads Best Picture Nominees to Near-Record Box Office Grosses
This year’s Academy Award nominees proved the Oscars don’t need a popular film category to recognize movies with huge box office grosses. The 2019 crop of best picture hopefuls have generated an impressive $1.26 billion so far in North America alone.

That bounty is led by “Black Panther,” which earned a sensational $700 million at the domestic box office. “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “A Star Is Born” both contributed in a big way with $202 million and $205 million, respectively in the States. “BlacKkKlansman,” “The Favourite,” “Green Book,” and “Vice” have combined for another $153 million. There is one glaring omission from this year’s best picture hopefuls — Netflix hasn’t reported any theatrical grosses for Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma.”

Even so, the current tally for the eight best picture nominees dwarfs the total from last year’s nine contenders, which carried the ignominious distinction as having the lowest grosses in six years. This year

#OscarsSoMale: People Are Outraged Over Lack Of Female Filmmakers In This Year’s Best Director Category

This year was supposed to be different, right? After opening up the Academy to a huge number of diverse people, this year’s Oscar nominations were going to be the bright, shining example of inclusivity that the awards show has lacked in years past. While there seems to be some diversity among the nominees, there is definitely a strong lack of females in the major filmmaking categories, despite 2018 being a banner year for women directors and writers.

What Netflix Backlash? The 2019 Oscar Nominations Snubs and Surprises

Among the biggest surprises of the 2019 Oscar race: There’s no such thing as a Netflix backlash. Not only did the most dominant force in Hollywood land 15 Oscar nominations, including “Roma” (10) and three surprise craft nods for the Coen brothers’ “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” but “Roma” is a historic achievement. It’s the 10th foreign-language nominee that also contends for Best Picture, tying Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (2000) for the most nominations earned by a foreign-language film.

Alfonso Cuarón also became the first filmmaker in Oscar history to land nominations for Picture, Director, and Cinematography. “Roma” is the fifth film to be nominated for Foreign Language Film and Best Picture in the same year. Each of the previous four — “Z” (1969), “Life Is Beautiful” (1998), “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (2000) and “Amour” (2012) — won for Foreign Language Film, but not Best Picture. If “Roma” wins Best Picture, it will be a

‘Song of Parkland’ Trailer: Marjory Stoneman Douglas Drama Students Try to Heal Their Community

It’s been less than a year since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. 17 students and staff died in the attack, leaving both the school community and the entire country unsure of how to move forward. The new HBO documentary “Song of Parkland” shows how the school’s drama department returned to school in the wake of the tragedy to put on a production to help unite the school. In addition to chronicling the efforts of the students to finish the production, the film also follows a number of Stoneman Douglas classmates as they became prominent activists throughout the rest of 2018. In addition to working to finish the last of their rehearsals, the newly released trailer for the film shows the students marching in demonstrations.

At 1990 Oscars, Kim Basinger Called Out the Academy for Snubbing Spike Lee and ‘Do the Right Thing’ — Watch

At 1990 Oscars, Kim Basinger Called Out the Academy for Snubbing Spike Lee and ‘Do the Right Thing’ — Watch
After three decades of making movies, Spike Lee is finally an Oscar-nominated director. He’s also finally a director with a Best Picture nominee. The filmmaker earned these long-overdue first nominations for “BlacKkKlansman,” but the general consensus among cinephiles is that Lee should have scored nominations for Best Director and Best Picture at the 63rd Academy Awards for “Do The Right Thing.” Lee was overlooked for Best Director that year in favor of Oliver Stone (“Born on the Fourth of July”), Woody Allen (“Crimes and Misdemeanors”), Peter Weir (“Dead Poets Society”), Kenneth Branagh (“Henry V”), and Jim Sheridan (“My Left Foot”).

In the wake of Lee’s historic Oscar nomination, a clip from the 1990 Oscars is going viral for featuring actress Kim Basinger calling out the Academy live on air for snubbing “Do The Right Thing.” “Driving Miss Daisy” won Best Picture at the Oscars that year, with the other

The Dark Knight scooped up eight Academy Award nominations for 2008, including a Best Supporting Actor nod for the late Heath Ledger. But many expected more.

If you're all caught up on today's Oscar nominations, you might have seen that Disney-Pixar's Bao has earned itself a nod for Best Animated Short Film. The competition is fierce for writer-director Domee Shi's tale about a Chinese-Canadian mother-son relationship, but the Pixar pedigree is strong with this one. I highly recommend seeking out each of the nominees, including Bao and Trevor Jimenez's award-winning animated short Weekends, which you can learn more about here. But if you're all-in on all things Pixar, you'll want to check out …

AMC, Regal, & Cinemark Ban ‘Roma’ From Oscars Best Picture Special Events

For weeks now, we’ve known (or at least predicted) that Alfonso Cuaron’s love-letter to his childhood, “Roma,” would secure Netflix with its first-ever Best Picture Oscar nomination. And this morning, that was confirmed, as the drama picked up a whopping 10 Oscar nominations. While Netflix is probably celebrating quite heavily thanks to the morning’s proceedings, there’s one group that is excluding “Roma” from the same recognition the other seven nominees are enjoying – the major theater chains.

5 Must-See Films of Sundance 2019

Tomorrow I head to Park City, Utah for my ninth Sundance Film Festival. I have soft spot for Sundance because despite the cold and despite some of the similarities among the indies they select, at the end of the day, there’s a real sense of discovery that you don’t get from other major film festivals. You never know what’s going to be the breakout hit that everyone is talking about, and the fact that these movies are mostly unknowns let you be a champion for the films you adore.

AMC and Regal Ban ‘Roma’ From Playing During Oscar Best Picture Showcase Screenings

AMC and Regal Ban ‘Roma’ From Playing During Oscar Best Picture Showcase Screenings
Per tradition, AMC Theaters and Regal Cinemas will be screening this year’s nominees for Best Picture back-to-back as part of their annual Oscar showcases (Regal has its Best Picture Film Festival and AMC has its Best Picture Showcase). However, one nominee that will not be playing during these events is Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma,” which tied with “The Favourite” for earning the most nominations this year. Among “Roma’s” 10 Oscar nominations are Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress. Deadline reports AMC and Regal are barring “Roma” from their Best Picture showcases because it is a Netflix release.

In a statement commenting on the decision, AMC said, “For more than a decade, movie-lovers have enjoyed the AMC Best Picture Showcase to catch up on the nominated films that played at AMC throughout the prior year. This year, Academy members nominated a film that was never licensed
