Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

2017 Oscar Nominations Have Been Announced

Better get your tux to a dry cleaners, pronto – it’s Oscar time again. The nominees for the 89th annual Academy Awards have been announced, and as expected, razzle-dazzle old-school musical La La Land has come out on top with a record-equaling 14 nominations. Hot on its toe-tapping heels are cerebral alien sci-fi Arrival and generational urban drama Moonlight, which both earned six nominations apiece.

There were nine Best Picture nominations this year – a category that can be anywhere from five to ten – with a diverse list that included a Western (Hell Or High Water), a war movie (Hacksaw Ridge), a sci-fi (Arrival).

Perhaps in response to last year’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy, there was plenty of recognition for films with non-white casts or stories, most notably Moonlight, Hidden Figures and Fences.

During a characteristically chin-scratching pre-recorded announcement video (never let it be said the Academy doesn’t know how to string something out) a series of previous winners were recruited to introduce the nominees, interspersed with anecdotes of winning the awards.

One notable snub was for Amy Adams, hotly tipped to pick up a nomination for either Arrival or Nocturnal Animals, and after five previous nominations with no win, is surely due a Leonardo DiCaprio-style coronation. Another surprise was Michael Shannon picking up a Best Supporting Actor nod, after his co-star in the same film, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, was recognised in the Golden Globes.

Meanwhile, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story repeated The Force Awakens' trick by picking up a few nods in the technical categories, which also bestowed unlikely recognition on blockbuster fare like Suicide Squad and Passengers.

The winners will be announced in a typically glitzy ceremony presented by Jimmy Kimmel at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on 26 February. See you at the dry cleaners.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
