GREAT GOING BUDDY! However & as we all now it's very early yet.   These 87th annual Academy Awards may be of a history vent a bit though

 

 

You have both   Oldman & Brain Cox as "Churchill" Benedict Cumbermatch as "Edison"_"Current War"),  Steve Carell as Bobby Riggs in "Battle of the Sexes" & of course more, possibly K. Branagh in "Murder on the 0rient Express?" Also, though no footage is set yet but John Travolta portrays John Gotti

 

as for the Ladies> Dench, "Victoria & Abdul" Annete Benning-(her 5th shot), Emma Stone as "Billie Jean King" in "Battle of the Sexes" Salma Hayek & I'd have look, but even more & never know actors get lucky in *"The Woodman" films & *K. Winslet is due in "Wonder Wheel"

 

& from the looks of whats coming ahead & despite some of it's drawbacks>"Dunkirk" may still be a big contender?  Also "Mudbark" "0ur Finest Hour" "The Current war" & several *Oscar pundits are high on "Wonder Woman"

 

& PLEASE HELP OUT!!! What ever happened to *Nicole's big "DUNKIRK?" Not 1 local theatre has plans to get it & no posters either?

 

WHO HAS SEEN IT & WHAT DID YOU THINK PLEASE? ;)  <_<  -_-  :rolleyes:  :o  B)

 

These just may be a historical *Oscars

To Jakeem, did you or someone edit down these releases I posted on here yesterday?   Because there was a lot more I submitted?

 

Looking ahead  in the distant future, *Dench is the a-typical type they would want to vote a 2nd *Academy award & for a typical period pc costume drama. I'll never forget the late Gene Siskel was adamant about her winning for '97's "Mrs. Brown"

Stating she should win by "proclamation"   Unless of course they finally want to honor Bening?

 

& though incredibally early, 0ldman seems the frontrunner already. Jakeem, ever see him in ":Sid & Nancy" "State of Grace" =(my pick as his finest work to date!)"Dracula"-(many pick on that thriller, but I agree w/Maltin in rating it a 3 & 1/2. It had everything going for it, music, performances, costumes, art-direction, sound, visuals. It's score was not in the race though> & did take home Best Make-Up, Sound Effects & Costume Design & made $83m. Not so much scary-(I rarely if ever get scared at a movie) but amazing to look at! & as you & others may be aware I'm very prejudiced when it comes to little WINONA! Others he did I wonder if you've seen yet>"True Romance"(AMAZING SUPPORTING WORK!), "The Professional" "The Contender"-(but Jeff Bridges got the nod.), But I've yet to see his sole *Oscar bid td "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy?"

 

I know I got the same EW info & typically the magazine didn't even bother to include it???

 

Jakeem, good going again pal!  I just got the newewst issue & **** you know early,it may tape a bit of shape?

 

(NOTE: Did you also cite the supporting masybes.,, because they have Carell in that role instead?

Jakeem, did you see "W. Woman" yet?   But by  far as you of all know "BEAUTY AND THE BEAST" is 2007's biggest ****  at over $500m. domestically only  I think that makes it No. 7 ever

 

Elba was in talks to portray the next "BOND"  My vote Tom Hardy  This guy name literally do everything & only at 40!

 

Ever see the nasty british gangster film "Legend?" (strong ***) beware the cockney accents are even stronger then *Connery's 1965 powerhouse "The Hill" (***1/2)

 

In "My Alternate *Oscars" I voted for Hardy as Best performance by a leading role in that pic. But he was only up for s. actor that yr for "The Revevent" instead  There was a  1990 crime-drama "The Krays" never saw it.

 & to add to the above 2017 upcoming releases I already posted on here, I thought it only polite to post these on (Jakeem's running post & not a new one)

 

 EW-(Entertainment Weekly) just released a lot of upcoming & they say *Oscar contenders for the fall of 2017 & most are>

 

 Best Picture:

 "Call Me By Your Name" (Sundance biggie)

 "Breathe" (Andrew ("Hacksaw Ridge") Garfield stars & the amazingly talented Andy Serkis makes his directorial debut)

 "Lady Bird" (Saoirse Ronan already a contender for "Brooklyn")

 "Mudbound" (Sundance) & stars Carey Mulligan. This one already has huge buzz

 "Downsizing" (D-Alexander Payne who has already taken home 2 *Oscars for his writing)

 "The Papers" (Spielberg is back!)

 

 Best Actor according to EW:

 Steve Carell in "Battle of the Sexes" as Bobby Riggs

 Jake Gyllenhaal in "Stronger" as a Boston Bombing victim

 Benedict Cumbermatch in & as Albert Einstein in "The Current War"-(NOTE: Imagine if he's up for leading actor vs. 0ldman & Brian Cox for the 2 Churchill bio's)

 Christian Bale in "Hostiles"

 Bryan Cranston in "Last Flag Flying"

 Matt Damon in "Downsizing"

 

& Actress:

 Annette Bening in "Film Stars Don't Die"-(would mark her 5th try)

 Emma Stone in "Battle of the Sexes" as Billie Jean King

 Glenn Close in "The Wife"-(she already has 6 nods. to date)

 Judi Dench in "Victoria & Abdul"-(you know how they love costume/period pieces)

 Jennifer Lawrence in "Mother"

 

Quite a number are left out of course, but that's that for now

 

JAKEEM, please send your thoughts :D  :)

Somehow women still make up less than a third of speaking characters in top U.S. movies: http://slate.me/2fhGTD3 

DGi7LNPW0AAN99W.jpg

 

 

Among sole releases I kind of regret not going to, just fed-up w/comics, sequels, remakes. Did go to the almost lousy at times & massively $expensive$ "Batman vs. Superman" ($330m.) (**) last year though. & speaking of it, it was well-known in Tinsel-Town & elsewhere that *Ben Affleck really juiced up w/steroids for that role. It was obvious, there were shots of him already twice his normal size leaving places. & you don't get that big that fast from just lifting weights either!  It's main debit was Jesse Eisemnberg as Lex Luther. Usually a pretty talented actor, but waaay over the top here. *Hackman was easily the finest in that role.

I could have told you that Detroit wouldn't be #1 for the weekend, and it wasn't because of any political reasons, either. It wasn't distributed widely enough. No movie that doesn't come to my local theater ever hits #1. And while we got The Dark Tower and Kidnap this weekend, we did not get Detroit.

 

It's also got very premature *Oscar buzz?
