OSCARS 2018 LIVE UPDATES: DEL TORO TALKS ABOUT SHAPE OF WATER, CHADWICK BOSEMAN STILL IN BLACK PANTHER MODE
It's crazy to be here. I'm very excited to be here, says Timothée Chalamet, nominated for Best Actor for his performance in Call Me By Your Name
I first noticed my best friends. And the second time, I watched with my mother: Saoirse Ronan, nominated for Best Actress for her performance in Ladybird
Can we talk about the arrival of Chadwick Boseman? And how nearly is he still with character like T'challa, swinging a black knee-length coat with satin lapis that have lovely golden embroidery around them? Well, he killed.
Jennifer Garner also showed a lot of photos of older red rugs on a giant screen and asked to remember. None of them went with Ben Affleck, thank God!
"If it had gone wrong, it would have been my fault, but now that it's going well, I'm happy," says the actress. "The female protagonists, who are strong but fail in various ways, are a precise way of describing women on screen."
Taraji P. Henson in a beautiful black-out-of-the-shoulder / sheer / thigh-high slit dress talks about redoing what Women Want, but this time as "what men want." Although she is not sure she never wanted this "gift" in real life.
Ashley Judd spoke about talking about Harvey Weinstein: "I started telling the story of how Harvey Weinstein chased me back in 1997. But we're finally being heard now. Anyone in any type of occupation facing sexual harassment can go to #TimesUp for help. "
Mira Sorvino said, "We are moving forward unless we can secure a world for women. We want to take our activism and power into action and change things for women everywhere."
Daniel Kaluuya, from Get Out and Black Panther fame (Get Out is nominated for the best picture) says, "I'm alive, I'm feeling good."
And the winter olympics are here too! Adam Rippon looks adorably high-fashioned in an inspiring Moschino look of bondage. They are calling it Moschino Harness.
Salma Hayek came in a fuschia rose dress, very lavishly bejeweled. Michael Strahan (who was interviewing her) did not ask her about her clothes, however. Instead, he talked about how Ashley Judd inspired her to come out with her own story and she talked about how her daughter is already a feminist. I think #askhermore is finally here!
Here is a brief summary of the nine films that vie for the most prestigious award at Sunday's Oscar ceremony:
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Martin McDonagh's funny dark tragic comedy emerged at 11 o'clock to enter Sunday as the favorite that most experts characterize as a four-way run with The Shape of Water, Get Out and Lady Bird.
The Form of Water
Guillermo del Toro's Cold War-era romantic fantasy tells the story of a dumb maid who falls in love with a magical river captive creature in a secret US government lab in Baltimore in the 1960s.
The bold satire on race relations - told by long-time director, Jordan Peele in the form of a terrific horror film - is one of the top five critically received films of all time, according to Rotten Tomatoes, .
The premiere of Greta Gerwig's solo director-a moving, authentic portrait of a volatile mother-daughter relationship-could see her become just the second woman to win the Oscar for best director.
The tenuous account of the 1940 evacuation of hundreds of thousands of Allied troops from a beach in northern France starring One Direction singer Harry Styles is a stranger to the first prize on Sunday.
British actor Gary Oldman, who disappears entirely in the role of Churchill, thanks to some convincing makeup and filling, is expected to bring his first Oscar to the best actor, although the film is another stranger to the best picture.
Call me by your name
Luca Guadagnino's film to the universal breakup of the first love, set in northern Italy in the 1980s, has three nominations plus the best picture - for Ivory's screenplay, a better lead actor for Chalamet's performance and the best music original.
The Steven Spielberg Journalism Celebration and the Free Press tell the story of the scenes from the 1971 Washington Post of the Pentagon Papers, which exposed the lies behind the US involvement in the Vietnam War.
In a movie full of notable performances, the most notable about this project is the fact that its impressive and iconic Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis says it will be his last.
Anderson's tenuous but crude story of the romance between a seamstress and her muse is also best for the best director and actor, best supporting actress for Lesley Manville, the best score for Jonny Greenwood's Radiohead and the best fancy design.
