The Oscars 2018 ceremony is shaping up to be an explosively awkward affair, and could make for an interesting night for many different reasons.
Warner Bros. has set a Dec. 25 limited release date for Ben Affleck’s Live by Night — positioning the period crime drama for an Oscar run.
Earlier this year Disney and Marvel released ‘Captain America: Civil War’ to rapturous acclaim and made a killing at the box office. No Marvel film has ever actually won an Oscar but have, over the years, had a number of nominations in various categories. Last week they held a ‘For Your Consideration’ screening of the movie in the hope of gaining that all-important recognition to get their awards season rolling, and in truth there’s no reason why ‘Civil War’, directed by the Russo Brothers, can’t nab a hefty amount of awards between now and early 2017.
Red carpet pageantry has reached peak craziness of late: hundreds of reporters and cameras vie to get that one quote that’ll go viral, getting picked up in papers, across the Internet, and on the morning talk show circuit. In 2012, a “mani cam” debuted at the height of the nail art craze—it requires women walk their fingers down a mini-runway—and most recently, a “clutch cam" was added to the repertoire.
Not even a week after the Golden Globes, the stars out again for yet another awards show. With not as much pressure, and recent Oscar nominations for some (and the chance to have a pity party for others), the 20th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards means the fashion is more fun. Jennifer Aniston actually wore a color — shocker! — and looked gorgeous in a red Gucci tuxedo; Angelina Jolie stunned in a silver shiny dress; Julianne Moore continued her campaign for best dressed of the awards season in a black gown; Keira Knightley redeemed herself for her Chanel butterfly misstep in Delpozo couture; and so much more from Felicity Jones to Jessica Chastain
