Zoe Kazan: Which actors and actresses are due for their first Oscar nomination?

Time to start up another annual tradition here on the site. Every year during the early parts of the season, basically post Oscars, I like to do a post about who is overdue to get either an Academy Award nomination or a win. Last year was no different, so we’re[...]

Ava DuVernay tackles tentpole filmmaking with “A Wrinkle in Time”

It’s positively refreshing to see a director get a chance to work their way up to a blockbuster. Too often these days, one indie hit gets a hotshot filmmaker (let’s face it, always a white dude) the next franchise to helm. It’s rare that this sort of work is a[...]

Final predictions for the 90th Academy Awards

It all comes down to this. The Oscars are this weekend, so the moment is now to publish final predictions for the show. This awards season has been unlike any in recent memory, so expect a potentially surprising Academy Award ceremony on Sunday evening. I’ve more or less had my[...]

Jennifer Lawrence: Her best performances so far

There are few brighter stars in Hollywood than Jennifer Lawrence. Ever since she broke through with her Academy Award nominated performance in Winter’s Bone, and especially once she starred in The Hunger Games, the A-list was a foregone conclusion for her. Lawrence is young, ambitious, talented, and a refreshingly honest[...]

“Call Me By Your Name” vs “Get Out” vs “Lady Bird”: Final Independent Spirit Award predictions
