McDormand, who won the 1996 Best Actress Oscar for her role as a pregnant Minnesota police chief in the Coen brothers' film "Fargo," can become the 14th woman to claim a second lead actress award.
 
She would join the great Katharine Hepburn -- who won an unprecedented four awards for the films "Morning Glory" (1932/33), "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" (1967), "The Lion in Winter" (1968) and "On Golden Pond" (1981) -- and 12 other stars.
 
They are: 
  • Luise Rainer, "The Great Ziegfeld" (1936) and "The Good Earth" (1937)
  • Bette Davis, "Dangerous" (1935) and "Jezebel" (1938)
  • Dame Olivia de Havilland, "To Each His Own" (1946) and "The Heiress" (1949)
  • Vivien Leigh, "Gone With the Wind" (1939) and "A Streetcar Named Desire" (1951)
  • Ingrid Bergman, "Gaslight" (1944) and "Anastasia" (1956)
  • Elizabeth Taylor, "BUtterfield 8" (1960) and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (1966)

  • Jane Fonda, "Klute" (1971) and "Coming Home" (1978)

McDormand could also snap a streak of Oscar telecasts in which the Best Actress award has gone to performers who weren't in the film named Best Picture. The last Best Picture cast member to win the Best Actress Oscar was Swank of "Million Dollar Baby." 
 
McDormand's Best Actress nomination is her first since "Fargo." Overall, she has been nominated for Academy Awards five times. Her nominated roles and films are as follows (Oscar win in bold): 
 
  • Mrs. Pell in "Mississippi Burning" (1988). Best Supporting Actress.
  • Marge Gunderson in "Fargo" (1996). Best Actress.
  • Elaine Miller in "Almost Famous" (2000). Best Supporting  Actress.

As usual great stats pal!  & she's virtually a lock to take it again, not quite as much as Oldman though, but close & again to her credit she never really campaigns for winning either   EVER SEE "BLOOD SIMPLE" (l984)?

  I'm 100% [positive that eventual *Streep will shatter all *AMPAS records though  when *Kate surprised most pundits by winning her still record 34th leading statuette for "0n Golden pond" ($118m.) she immediately called *Jane Fonda & just yelled "You'll Never Catch me Now" unquote & hung up the phone  So she did pay attention  after all & would always watch them when *Tracy was up for more of his all (9) leading *Oscars

Cool Jakeem, was wondering if you were going to post these or not?  I didn't see "The Emoji Movie" myself though  However, did unfortunately go to "mother!" ($18m.) (*)_& have never walked out of a movie sinbce 1982, but was very close with this staggeringly awful & unpleasant mess of a picture  Only went because "Marvelous Michelle Pfeiffer" was in it though.  She herself still survived it & the pretty well-made remake (**1/2) of  "Murder on the 0rient express" (surprisingly took in over $100m. domestically too & really thought it would earn noms for it's costumes & production design-(same thing that was for years just Art-Direction) but obviously didn't?

& I call out to anyone else that actually paid$$$ to see "mother!"  It is a jaw dropping experience sports fans

Some things to consider before the 90th Academy Awards ceremony, which begins tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC:
 
Based on the 2009 novel by Kathryn Stockett, "The Help" -- the story of white Jackson, Mississippi families and their black maids in the 1960s -- went into production in July 2010. Who could have guessed that some of its extraordinary cast members would become frequent contenders at the Academy Awards?
 
When "The Help" was filmed, the only Academy Award winners in it were Sissy Spacek and Mary Steenburgen, both of whom earned Oscars for 1980 acting performances. Since then, three of their co-stars have won statuettes -- and a fourth is favored to win one tonight. It's possible that other cast members will be presented Oscars someday.

"The Help" cast was named the best screen ensemble at the 2012 SAG Awards 
 
Directed by Tate Taylor, "The Help" was released in August 2011 and went on to gross $217 million worldwide. It also received four Academy Award nominations: Best Picture, Best Actress (Viola Davis), Best Supporting Actress (Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer). The only winner was Spencer, the veteran actress who played Minny Jackson in the film. She has been nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for the past two years -- for her performances in "Hidden Figures" (2016) and "The Shape of Water" (2017).

A year ago, two more co-stars of "The Help" won Oscar gold. Emma Stone, who played the budding writer Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan in the 2011 film, won the Best Actress award for her performance in the 2016 musical "La La Land." Davis, who starred as Aibileen Clark in "The Help," was named Best Supporting Actress for the drama "Fences." She and Spencer have been nominated for Academy Awards three times each -- a record for African-American actresses.

Tonight, Allison Janney -- who played Skeeter's mother Charlotte Phelan in "The Help" -- is the favorite to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in "I, Tonya." Among her competitors is her friend Spencer, who has guest starred several times on Janney's CBS sitcom "Mom." Janney also has collected seven Primetime Emmy Awards -- one shy of the record hauls by Cloris Leachman and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Don't bet against the chances of Chastain and Cicely Tyson becoming Oscar recipients someday. Chastain, who played Celia Rae Foote in "The Help," is a two-time nominee. In addition to her 2011 Best Supporting Actress nomination, she earned Best Actress recognition for her performance in the 2012 thriller "Zero Dark Thirty." Tyson, who is 93, appeared in "The Help" as Constantine Bates -- the elderly African-American woman who helped care for Skeeter Phelan as a child.  The veteran actress is frequently mentioned as a worthy choice for an honorary Oscar for her body of work. Her 1972 Best Actress nomination as the stoic sharecropper's wife in "Sounder" occurred the same year that Diana Ross received a nod for her portrayal of singer Billie Holliday in "Lady Sings the Blues." It was the first time that two African-American women were nominated in the same acting category. They also were the first black actresses to be recognized in a lead category by the Academy since Dorothy Dandridge received a Best Actress nomination for the 1954 film "Carmen Jones."

I've been watching TCM all day (which is a rarity for me to actually watch the channel live, but I've watched Born Yesterday, Send Me No Flowers, Charade and now Beach Party), I'm waiting for the Oscar red carpet coverage to start at 4ish.  It's actually been on since 2, but stars aren't going to be showing up 3 hours early! The big show starts at 5.  We're having steaks and wine and cocktails and I got a bottle of champagne to toast the winners at the end.  I've got my Oscar ballot filled out and I'm proud that I've actually seen some of the nominees.

I'm looking forward to seeing what they'll roll out for the 90th anniversary (boring political commentary aside, that's bathroom or cocktail break time!) and look forward to seeing Rita Moreno and Eva Marie Saint. I've been watching the Oscar ceremonies for at least twenty-twenty five years now and do miss the days of seeing all the old classic stars.  There aren't many of them left now.  I do wish that the politics would take a break and that each and every celebrity would stop trying to deliver what they think will be some earth shattering acceptance speech.  Just say thank you and move on. It's about time for them to get the big vaudeville hook out and forcibly remove people from the stage.  Despite that, I like seeing the stars and the gowns and like to learn about film.

yum! I love ziti! I'm at my parents' house.  My dad is going to grill steaks and we have baked potatoes and veggies.  We have rum and cokes, beer and wine and then a bottle of champagne for the end of the evening.

Some notes on the 90th Academy Awards ceremony, which ran just under four hours -- almost double the one hour and 23-minute running time of the Best Picture winner, "The Shape of Water." 

The Third Amigo: Guillermo del Toro's Oscar wins -- for co-producing and directing "The Shape of Water" -- have enabled the Mexican-born filmmaker to match the awards night feats of two of his countrymen. His friends Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro G. Iñárritu previously made big splashes at the Academy Awards. Cuarón won Oscars for directing and co-editing the 2013 hit "Gravity." Iñárritu has won four Oscars, including back-to-back Best Director awards for the films "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" and "The Revenant." He also received a special award last November for his virtual reality experience movie "Carne y Arena."

Perhaps Brian Cox's film was released in the wrong year: Gary Oldman's Best Actor win for "The Darkest Hour" is the latest in a series award-winning portrayals of Sir Winston Churchill. Last September, John Lithgow won a Primetime Emmy for his take on Churchill in "The Crown" -- making him the third person since 2002 to claim the television award for a portrayal of Britain's indomitable World War II leader. Albert Finney won for his performance as the prime minister in the HBO film "The Gathering Storm" (2002). Ireland's Brendan Gleeson won for another HBO Churchill film, "Into the Storm" (2009).

Why Frances McDormand's Oscar win was a bad sign for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri": The streak continues. It's been 13 years since a recipient of the Best Actress award also appeared in the Best Picture winner. The last time it happened: February 27, 2005, when Hilary Swank won for "Million Dollar Baby." 

Image result for frances mcdormand oscars

A streak that was snapped: The highly regarded British director of photography Roger Deakins won his first Best Cinematography award for his work on Sir Ridley Scott's film "Blade Runner 2049." Deakins had gone 0-for-13 in his previous nominations.

A tale of two screenplay award winners (Part 1): The veteran American filmmaker James Ivory became the oldest Academy Award winner in history after picking up the Best Adapted Screenplay statuette for "Call Me By Your Name." It was his first Oscar after three previous nominations as a director. Ivory -- who will observe his 90th birthday on June 7, 2018 -- is known for his screen collaborations with his longtime personal and producing partner Ismail Merchant (1936-2005) and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala (1927-2013). "Working with them for close to 50 years at Merchant-Ivory led me to this award," he said.

A tale of two screenplay award winners (Part 2): Jordan Peele became the first African-American recipient of the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for his horror tale "Get Out." The feature film marked his major debut as a director. "I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible," he said. "I thought it wasn't gonna work. I thought no one would ever make this movie. But I kept coming back to it because I knew if someone let me make this movie, that people would hear it and people would see it."

But he hasn't won a Nobel Prize like Shaw and Dylan: The five-time National Basketball Association champion Kobe Bryant became the first sports titlist to win an Oscar. He shared the Best Animated Short Film award with director Glean Keane for "Dear Basketball." The production was inspired by a poem written by Bryant, who retired in 2017 after a 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Thoughts for the day: "Dreams are the foundation of Hollywood. And dreams are the foundation of America," said actress Lupita Nyong'o, who presented the Best Production Design award with actor-comedian Kumail Nanjiani. He added: "To all the Dreamers out there, we stand with you."

Something wonderful: Rita Moreno, who presented the award for Best Foreign Language Film, dazzled observers with her dress. It was the same one she wore when she won an Oscar for "West Side Story on April 9, 1962. The actress-singer-dancer (pictured then with co-star George Chakiris) said the dress had been hanging in her closet. "The fabric was made out of the sashes Japanese women use on their kimonos," she told Ryan Seacrest before the Oscars telecast. "They’re usually folded over and over and over, it’s all one piece of fabric. I thought it would tarnish!"

Gone, but never forgotten: Among the notables featured in the traditional "In Memoriam" segment was the longtime Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne, who died at the age of 84 on March 6, 2017. Among the glaring omissions was the Academy Award-winning actress Dorothy Malone, who died at 93 on January 19, 2018.

The 1988 Flashback Award: To Best Actor presenter Jane Fonda, who announced Gary Oldman's Oscar victory by declaring: "And the winner is..." Since the 61st Academy Awards ceremony on March 29, 1989, presenters have been asked to say: "And the Oscar goes to..."

Films that doubled their pleasure: "The Shape of Water" (4); "Dunkirk" (3); "Blade Runner 2049" (2); "Coco" (2); "Darkest Hour" (2); "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" (2).

Speaking of doubling your pleasure: Robert Lopez and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez won their second Best Original Song Oscar for "Remember Me" from "Coco." Four years ago, they won for "Let It Go" from the 2013 Disney animated feature "Frozen." At that time, Robert Lopez became the youngest E.G.O.T. (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner at the age of 39 years and seven days. He also accomplished the feat in 10 years -- faster than anyone else. Now he's the first person to double E.G.O.T. He has two Oscars, two Daytime Emmys, three Grammys and three Tonys.

In case you were wondering: The next Academy Awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019.
