Ms. Marvel Series Coming To Disney+

2018 Oscar Nominations Are Here

Roll out the red carpet, get the teary acceptance speeches ready, and for the love of god, somebody please check the envelopes. Hollywood’s biggest awards night, The Oscars, is on the horizon, and the nominations are now in for this year’s crop of top-tier films.

The 2018 ceremony is looking to be a good night for The Shape of Water, Dunkirk, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Guillermo Del Toro’s swooning inter-species romance has bagged 13 nods, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress for Sally Hawkins, Best Supporting Actor for Richard Jenkins, and Original Screenplay. Christopher Nolan’s war survival film has snagged him eight nominations, including his first ever Best Director nod, with Dunkirk up for eight categories overall. Meanwhile Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards has seven nominations, with Best Picture and Best Actress for Frances McDormand in the mix.

Faring exceptionally well as a genre film, Jordan Peele’s satirical horror-thriller Get Out made an impact in all the major categories — Peele himself is up for Best Director, the film has got a Best Picture nod, and Daniel Kaluuya is up for Best Actor. Blade Runner 2049 also came away with five awards, mostly in the technical categories, as did Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Greta Gerwig is in with a shot of Best Director this year, meaning it’s not a repeat of the Golden Globes’ “all-male nominees”, while Lady Bird is up for Best Picture as well as Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan. Darkest Hour has six nominations, including Best Actor for Gary Oldman, and one of three spots in the Make-up category for Oldman’s jaw-dropping transformation into Winston Churchill. Phantom Thread fared well with six nominations, including Best Director for Paul Thomas Anderson, Best Actor for Daniel Day Lewis in his alleged final ever screen role, and Jonny Greenwood’s score.

Former Oscar hopefuls who failed to pick up much recognition include Wonder Woman, The Disaster Artist, Molly’s Game, and All the Money in the World — though Christopher Plummer’s final-hour re-shoot performance in Ridley Scott’s thriller has earned him a Best Supporting Actor nomination.

Otherwise notable is Logan’s appearance in Adapted Screenplay, The Boss Baby crawling into the Best Animated Feature category, and The Big Sick getting welcome recognition for its Original Screenplay.

Will The Shape of Water flood the deck and scoop all the biggest prizes? Or will Three Billboards continue its winning campaign and bag those shiny gold statues? Find out on Sunday March 4 when the ceremony takes place.

Disney Says Bye To Spider-Man In Any Upcoming Films For Now

Deadline is reporting Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.

This comes at a moment when the last two films Kevin Feige produced broke all-time records — Disney’s Avengers: Endgame became the highest grossing film of all time, and Spider-Man: Far From Home this week surpassed the James Bond film Skyfall to become the all time highest grossing film for Sony Pictures.

Sources said there are two more Spider-Man films in the works that are meant to have director Jon Watts and Tom Holland front and center. Unless something dramatic happens, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer of those pictures.

There is a lot of w…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON In Sacramento #RunBrittanyRun

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON On August 22nd at 7:00 PM In Sacramento.

Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend — except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.




The Netflix original series Living With Yourself is an inventive existential comedy that asks: do we really want to be better? Miles (Paul Rudd) is a man struggling in life. When he undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version of himself. As he deals with the unintended consequences of his actions, Miles finds he must fight for his wife Kate (Aisling Bea), his career, and his very identity. Told from multiple perspectives, the eight-episode series was created and written by Emmy® Award winner Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (The Battle of the Sexes, Little Miss Sunshine) and stars Paul Rudd and...Paul Rudd. Greenberg executive produces with Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern for Likely Story, Tony Hernandez for Jax Media, Dayton, Faris, Rudd, and Jeff Blitz. Living With Yourself launches globally Friday, October 18 on Netflix.
