The Oscars 2018 ceremony is shaping up to be an explosively awkward affair, and could make for an interesting night for many different reasons.
EXCLUSIVE: With the six-month-long awards season kicking off today in Venice with the already critically well-received Downsizing (which now heads to Telluride and Toronto along with countless other hopefuls debuting in the fall/holiday corridor so friendly to Oscar contenders), there is one major studio determined to make sure everyone knows their summer blockbuster will also be going for the gold– and they aren’t about to let you forget it. 20th Century Fox will be…

Just three days before Hollywood’s biggest night, Gary Alan Coe was released from a California prison after serving 20 years of a life sentence for multiple felonies.
It takes enough guts to wear a bikini to the beach — so imagine how much confidence Gabrielle Union must’ve had to conjure in order to basically wear a bathing suit with half a cover up on the red carpet.
While nearly every other attendee of the Oscars and its after-parties opted for gorgeous gowns, Diane Kruger went in a different direction. The actress stepped out on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscars party wearing a metallic minidress from Alexandre Vauthier.

At the Oscars on Sunday night, Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel surprised a bunch of unsuspecting people with a short trip to the front row of the ceremony. Gary from Chicago and his selfie stick carrying fiancée were the first in line and Kimmel pleaded with his celebrity friends to gift the soon-to-be newlyweds with a present. “Jen do you have a wedding gift for them, maybe you can give them something from your purse,” Kimmel asked the Friends actress.
Chan, who is being honored at the 89th Annual Academy Awards with a Lifetime Achievement Award, has starred in over 250 films over his 33-year career. And he’s also traveled with these same stuffed pandas, named La and Zy, since 2010, when the martial arts icon took the stuffed animals around the world with him to promote Karate Kid. On Sunday night, La and Zy — who are from Build-a-Bear — were dressed down for the occasion, in yellow jackets and black stone-washed jeans. One of the pandas wore a blue UNICEF pin on his shirt (Chan has been an ambassador to the organization since 2004), while the other wore a red ribbon on its ear. They punctuated their look with silver booties from Shearers Ugg.

Moonlight won Best Picture at the 89th Academy Awards — but not without some unexpected bonus drama. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, presenting Best Picture to honor the 50th anniversary of Bonnie and Clyde, announced La La Land as the winner, and the acceptance speeches had begun when the mistake was announced. La La Land had won six awards earlier in the evening, after a record-tying 14 nominations. The belated Best Picture award raised Moonlight‘s total to three, following honors for Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali. ...
How far did Moana go from the initial drawing-board version? With the Oscar-contending animated hit heading home (the Digital HD version arrives Tuesday while the Blu-ray/DVD hits shelves on March 7), Yahoo Movies has an exclusive deleted scene (watch it above) that shows how the title heroine evolved as a character. As they set up the clip, directors Ron Clements (the one with the beard) and John Musker reveal where it originally had fit in the film.
It’s unusual to schedule an interview during the last quarter of the Super Bowl, but Lin-Manuel Miranda is somewhat pressed for time these days. Miranda, the Oscar-nominated writer-performer-musician whom it’s impossible to describe without at least two hyphens, flew into Los Angeles late on Sunday to attend Monday’s Oscar Nominees Luncheon. There, the man who wrote and starred in the Broadway sensation Hamilton will celebrate his nod for Best Original Song for the stirring ballad “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney animated adventure Moana.
At 20, Lucas Hedges is 2017’s youngest Oscar nominee. The Manchester by the Sea breakout brings some much-needed laughs to the devastating drama as Patrick, the confident, hockey- and basketball-playing, boat-working, wannabe rocker with two girlfriends who falls under the care of his disgruntled uncle (Casey Affleck). The actor told Yahoo Movies he auditioned for the role five times before finally getting the green light from writer-director Kenneth Lonergan.
The nominations for the 89th annual Academy Awards will be doled out at the crack of the Los Angeles dawn on Tuesday morning — and you can watch the livestream here at Yahoo Movies starting 5:18 a.m. PT/8:18 a.m. ET. As always, there’s a healthy dose of suspense in every major race, particularly in three of the four acting categories. (The Oscars themselves will be handed out at the ceremony on Feb. 26.)
How’s this for plot twists: The R-rated superhero smash Deadpool is now a legit Oscar contender. Two days after competing for Best Picture — Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes, the action movie starring Ryan Reynolds has scored another major accolade: a Best Picture nomination from the Producers Guild of America, long considered one of the best predictors of the Academy Awards’ top race. Deadpool edged out more conventional awards-season films, such as Martin Scorsese’s Silence and Clint Eastwood’s Sully, to secure a slot in the PGA list.
The acclaimed musical La La Land was predicted to be an awards season juggernaut from the time it first hit the festival circuit in late-summer. Now you can take a inside look at how writer-director Damien Chazelle and company crafted the film’s stylish look in the exclusive behind-the-scenes video above. —Chazelle notes how they peppered lampposts throughout the movie to create a visual motif.
In some ways, Jimmy Kimmel seems like the safest possible choice to host 2017’s Academy Awards: He’s largely apolitical, rarely controversial, and already associated with the show, thanks to his annual “After the Oscars” edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which has been airing after the ceremony since 2010. At the same time, hosting the Oscars is a notoriously difficult gig, and past talk show hosts who’ve accepted the challenge — including Jon Stewart, Ellen DeGeneres, and, infamously, David Letterman — have seen their go-to comedy bits land with a thud in that room full of stars.
