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.

Greatest films about female solidarity

Reader’s Digest
Greatest films about female solidarity
March 19, 2018

From Steel Magnolias to Frances Ha, these are our favourite films about female solidarity.

If there’s one thing that life can guarantee, it’s unpredictability. When life doesn’t appear to be going according to plan and nothing seems to be going as it should, one of the few things you can be certain of is that your fellow women are going to be there with you no matter what. This rings true for Aurore (Agnès Jaoui), in I Got Life! – a timely and uplifting film celebrating womanhood which arrives in UK cinemas on March 23rd. Read More

HOLLYWOOD — Next week we’ll know for sure. This week we speculate, just for fun, because there’s no way to second guess the way members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will vote. Not when they pit an animated feature against live actors and nominate
a picture completely ignoring its director Barbra Streisand for Prince of Tides. ” So … just for fun I’ll go with ‘Bugsy” for best picture and its director Barry Levinson for best director. Read More

LOS ANGELES — Can a performer win the Oscar when a co-star is nominated for the same movie? The issue will be tested at the March 30 Academy Awards, for which Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis were both nominated as best actress for “Thelma & Louise.”

“Thelma & Louise,” in which two women enjoy a law-breaking spree through the West, proved the sleeper of 1991.

The best actress nominees:

DAVIS AND SARANDON played free-hearted women intent on a payback for the indignities they suffered at the hands of men in Ridley Scott‘s “Thelma & Louise.” Read More

But what about leading roles for women? The outlook isn’t particularly plentiful from the more than 75 movies due to open before the end of the year. Read More

As Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara ramp up for their release of ‘Hot Pursuit,’ we pick out our favorite A-list female duos n film.

ou can’t spit out a popcorn kernel without hitting a buddy movie. This year has already given us several bromance flicks (The Wedding Ringer and Hot Tub Time Machine 2, for example), but lady-buddy movies are much harder to come by.

It’s been two long years since we were introduced to a big-budget film about a memorable female duo — The Heat, starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock — but theaters are finally welcoming a new one this week. Read More
