Like I said much news , the other bombshell this week is that after 18 years the Los Angeles Film Festival has folded ....although it will continue with smaller year round events...the decision this year to move what was usually a summer event to the autumn (a time packed with awards festivals ) probably didn't help.

To Quote Deadline "The European Film Academy has been somewhat predictive of the Foreign Language Oscar in recent years including for such winners as Ida, The Great Beauty and Amour. Last year’s winner was Ruben Ostlund’s The Square which went on to an Oscar nomination, but did not take the ultimate prize — Sebastian Lelio’s A Fantastic Woman, did. " Also nice to see The Death Of Stalin get a nomination in the Comedy award.

Meanwhile the Academy of Motion picture arts and sciences ( The Oscars to you and me) Have announced that 166?!?!!? (Yep that's right One Hundred and Sixty Six) feature length documentaries have been submitted for consideration for this years feature documentary award . that means for the selection panel to get a short list, It would take them 13.1 days (24 hours non stop continuous watching) to watch every entry.

Well the Governors awards were handed out at the weekend ....this is now seen as the kick off for the bigger awards ceremonies. The Governors awards are the Honorary Oscars that used to be handed out at the Academy Awards but over the years have been cut for time. The Biggest surprise is it includes the Irving J Thalberg Award which used to be one of the main Oscar moments.

The Winners are
Actress Cicely Tyson
Composer Lalo Schifrin
Publicist Marvin Levy

The Irving J Thalberg award: Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall.

Meanwhile The Producers Guild have announced their Nominees for Best Documentary
RBG
Three Identical Strangers
Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
Hal
Into the Okavango
Free Solo
The Dawn Wall

RBG the story of supreme court Justice Ruth Bader Gainsbourg may profit from the recent political arguments over the supreme court, Three Identical Strangers is the true story of triplets who were separated at birth and who by complete accident discovered each other existed 20 years later , the film follows their questions why they were separated and the disturbing answer they uncover.
Into the Okavango is about a research trip across Africa. Won't you be My Neighbour is the Story of American Icon Mr. Rogers (you'll be seeing a lot of Mr Rogers in the next year with Tom Hanks playing him in an upcoming film)
Hal may or may not do well as it is the story of Hal Ashby , a man considered one of Hollywoods greatest Directors who in the last years of his life managed to wreck his own career through cocaine and finally Free Solo and The Dawn Wall ...both films cover climbers attempting to free climb ( No ropes or safety equipment) two separate mountain faces in the Yosemite valley ....well you know what they say "you wait ages for a movie about free climbing in the Yosemite Valley and two come along at once."

Well all's quiet in Hollywood for the last four days it being thanksgiving however it wouldn't be awards season if it there weren't dirty tricks ( Examples Meryl Streep shooting down her "good Friend" Emma Thompsons chances for Saving Mr Banks by hinting at Walt Disney being an Anti-Semite, Meryl Streeps own chances last year for The Post being shot down with the infamous "she Knew" campaign")
Green Book a comedy-drama film about a tour of the Deep South in the 1960s by African-American classical pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his wiseguy driver Tony Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen) The feel good film has been winning audience awards and standing ovations but it seems its "hokey" View of race and friendship has annoyed the twitter mob and sites like Vox , writing "outraged" articles that at a special showing the Director and the son of Tony Valleonga had to stand up and confirm the film was a true story.

Meanwhile it seems we have this years Steve Jobs , where a film flops but the leads performance is hailed. The Front Runner the story of Gary Hart's (Hugh Jackman) 1988 failed presidential campaign opened at no 16 at the box office and has (according to box office mojo) grossed barely $1.5 million dollars since it's release 3 weeks ago and yet many think Jackman should be nominated for an academy award for his performance.. the question is has the poor box office killed any chance of that happening.

Not sure if Green Book can keep the favourite all season though , not with what seems to be an organized campaign by "outraged" trolls.

Well pardon the pun but I think we have an early British "Favourite" with the announcement last night of the winners of the British Independent Film Awards with THE FAVOURITE a film telling of the jealousies that raked the court of Queen Ann taking a record ten awards!. To be quite honest , the awards rarely signal which film will win the awards later in the season however word of mouth is That the Favourite will dominate the Bafta's (reinforced by this performance) and will surely be considered for Academy Award Nominations.

Further down the list ROMA took Best international film , the question is will the limited film release the Netflix production got qualify it for the Academy Awards( If the film had a traditional release then it surely would be a certainty for nomination.)

Here is the list of winners in full.

Annie Awards

The Animators have announced their nominations.

The Annies aren't quite as important to the Academy now. Prior to last year's Rule Change the Animation Guilds selected their nominations and the nominations were then given to the wider membership. But now the who membership chooses those who will become the nominees.

This means that while the Animators were generally aware of all animated films, the wider membership only know the popular films. I'd be surprised if Aardman make it to the Academy Nominations instead of the more well-known "Smallfoot". The same is probably true of "Isle of Dogs"

Best Animated Feature

Early Man Aardman Animations
Incredibles 2 Pixar Animation Studios
Isle Of Dogs Fox Searchlight Pictures / Indian Paintbrush / American Empirical Pictures
Ralph Breaks The Internet Walt Disney Animation Studios
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Sony Pictures Animation

BlackKklansman
Black Panther
Eighth Grade
If Beale Street Could Talk
The Favourite
First Reformed
Green Book
Mary Poppins Returns
A Quiet Place
A Star Is Born

They will announce their eventual winner on Jan 3rd

Looks like "First Man" is starting to fall away, "Beautiful Boy" may also want to be worried.

Thursday sees the Golden Globe Nominations announced. Next week the Critics Circles will start to list their awards, but everyone will be waiting for Dec 12th when SAG announced its nominees

On the annies , I could be wrong but I think Aardman doesn't stand a chance at the Oscars and Spiderman into the Spiderverse could be the one to watch

Kevin Hart has been announced as the host of this Years Academy Awards.

Well Kevin Hart has stepped down as the Host of the Oscars! Hart had posted Homophobic comments in the past and which caused a storm on twitter when he was announced as Host. Stupidly however Hart decided to hold his ground stating he was not going to be hunted off by Internet trolls and posting a picture of himself bare chested until late last night when he finally apologized and stepped down.

The Academy's voting to shortlist Best Foreign Language film closes Tuesday which raises an interesting question , will Roma be nominated for Best Picture as well as in Foreign Language as it is currently dominating the critics awards, is this the breakthrough Netflix have been looking for? Or will Netflix be ignored as the Academy wants cinema releases.

Meanwhile the Academy is reportedly in panic mode with Kevin Hart stepping down ...the New York post at the weekend reported that no one wants to host the awards anymore due to poor pay...( the Host is expected to do rehearsals for six weeks for the sum of $15000) and the danger posed by social media. The last time Oscars lost a host was when Brett Ratner was forced to step down as Director and Eddie Murphy walked out in sympathy but even then that happened a month earlier so the Academy had more time.

Deadline are also reporting members of the academy were deeply "Unhappy" with what occurred at the lighting ceremony for the academy museum which opens next year. What was to be a celebration turned into another attempt by studios to get award nominations as studios brought all the major nomination hopefuls to shake hands and try to get votes. One academy member stated “I get that we can use the Governors Awards for that kind of opportunity, but nobody told me a museum event was also OK,”

Hmmm, it's an interesting one as the SAG awards are a good tip (no not the Globes) to who will take the Academy award.

Emily Blunt is in with two nominations....if she does win Me thinks it will be for A QUIET PLACE

Rami Malek I suspect ( I could be wrong) will be this years actor with most nominations , least awards (except perhaps the globes)

But the list is what I expected..now there could be a shock with Black Panther and the cast award (sags version of best picture) but it would be odd that the film would win when it has not received a single nomination in any of the other categories.

The Black Film Critics Circle has announced it's awards for 2018 , unsurprisingly Black Panther took the top prize


Best Picture
Black Panther

Best Director
Ryan Coogler

Best Actor
Bradley Cooper – A Star Is Born

Best Actress
Viola Davis – Widows

Best Supporting Actor
Mahershala Ali – Green Book

Best Supporting Actress
Regina King – If Beale Street Could Talk

Best Original Screenplay
Sorry To Bother You – Boots Riley

Best Adapted Screenplay
If Beale Street Could Talk – Barry Jenkins

Best Cinematography
Roma

Best Foreign Film
Roma

Best Documentary
Quincy

Best Animated Film
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Best Ensemble
Black Panther

What is interesting is not Black Panther Won, that was a given but the fact that Roma is now dominating the critics awards making it a certainty for the best foreign film oscar and that late comer Spider Man into the Spiderverse looks likely to dominate the animation awards later in the season.

VICE, The bio pic of Dick Cheney has been nominated for several Golden Globes but was being ignored with the attention being on films such A STAR IS BORN and BLACK PANTHER but at the Capri Hollywood festival the film Took four Awards including Best Picture....do we have a last minute dark horse for this years awards season?

Ellen De Generes has interviewed Kevin Hart for her show , the interview will be shown later today, De Generes in the Interview begs Hart to reconsider his decision to step down as host of the Oscars after she revealed she had talked to the Academy and announced they were open to his returning. Will this trigger a comeback?
