TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991 (Bette Makes The List Twice)

Awards Circiut
TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991
By Sam Coffey – Apr 4, 20180

ACCA 1991As voting continues in ACCA 1991, Awards Circuit celebrates the many great films of 1991, perhaps one of the most historic years in Oscar history.  A number of talented performers, directors, writers, and craftsmen were nominated (or won!) for their great achievements but have somehow not found their way back to the Dolby Theatre.  Mercifully, some actors who remained on this barren list for ages eventually found Oscar glory again, with Robert De Niro landing his first nomination since “Cape Fear” with “Silver Linings Playbook” and Laura Dern doing the same in 2014 with “Wild” following up her first nomination for “Rambling Rose.”  Unfortunately, too many winners and nominees from 1991 have passed away, failing to get back to Oscar since this year, including Jessica TandyJack Palance, cinematographer Adrian Biddle, and shockingly Jonathan Demme.

Hocus Pocus Is Getting A Sequel, Just Not In The Way You’d Guess – New TV Movie, New Cast, New Book

Cinema Blend
Hocus Pocus Is Getting A Sequel, Just Not In The Way You’d Guess
BY JESSICA RAWDEN
Feb 1, 2018

Hocus Pocus is a Halloween classic for a certain faction of fans who love the dynamic between Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy in the film. Although the leading three witches have expressed an interest in coming back for the sequel, we found out a few months ago that Disney had plans to reboot Hocus Pocus as a TV movie, instead. On the bright side, there is a consolation prize for original Hocus Pocus fans. Although we won’t be getting that big screen sequel, Disney is releasing a new book just in time for the 25th anniversary of the original film. Read More

Hocus Pocus star Doug Jones thinks a remake is “so unnecessary”

Hocus Pocus star Doug Jones thinks a remake is “so unnecessary”
BY TOM CHAPMAN
6 DECEMBER 2017

While fans of ’90s nostalgia can’t wait for another outing of Hocus Pocus, it seems that one of the original movie’s stars isn’t quite so keen.

After playing shuffling zombie Billy Butcherson in Kenny Ortega’s Halloween classic, actor Doug Jones has jumped on the anti-Hocus Pocus bandwagon.

As for the chances of the 57-year-old reprising his role as Billy, don’t count on it. Speaking to TooFab, Jones has slammed the idea of Disney’s TV remake.

“The idea of a reboot is like, I hope that was a misprint and I hope they’re talking about the sequel that we were talking about before,” complained Jones. “I hope someone got that wrong,” Read More

Top 10 campy performances snubbed by Oscars: Michael Keaton in ‘Beetlejuice,’ three ‘Hocus Pocus’ witches

Top 10 campy performances snubbed by Oscars: Michael Keaton in ‘Beetlejuice,’ three ‘Hocus Pocus’ witches …

Fans of the Academy Awards live for surprises, and nothing is more surprising than a comedic performance being recognized among a sea of serious Oscar-bait. Whenever a funny guy or gal receives a nomination (or even more rare, a WIN), it’s like a breath of fresh air is infused into the awards season. Think Melissa McCarthy in “Bridesmaids” or Robert Downey Jr. in “Tropic Thunder.” But alas, sometimes these campy roles are snubbed by the Oscars. In our photo gallery above, we highlight 10 examples of campy portrayals that would have made ridiculously fun inclusions in the canon of Academy-nominated performances.

BETTE MIDLER IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THE HOCUS POCUS REMAKE

AV Club
Bette Midler thinks that Hocus Pocus remake is bullshit
By William Hughes
Tuesday 4:32pm

At least half the pleasure of Disney’s silly ’90s Halloween classic Hocus Pocus is watching Bette Midler tear through the town of Salem as witchy woman Winifred Sanderson, devouring the scenery with a degree of success far surpassing her efforts to gobble up little kids’ souls. But don’t expect to see Midler reprising her beloved role for Disney’s upcoming remake of the film, or even stopping by, broom in hand, for a quick cameo. Read More
