Hollywood prepares for the Academy Awards

Oscars 2018 As Jimmy Kimmel Returns As Host A Piece Of Advice From Ellen DeGeneres

Once the war was over, the winners were able to trade in their plaster trophies for a regular version. When the history of Oscars are discussed, his name is certain to come up.

But Oscar predictions in general appear to have overshadowed discussions regarding which nominees should win and why. Of the four others, Lina Wertmuller ( "Seven Beauties" ), Jane Campion ("The Piano" ), Sofia Coppola ( "Lost in Translation" ) and Kathryn Bigelow ( "The Hurt Locker" ), Bigelow is the only woman who has ever won, beating out her ex-husband, James Cameron for the statue.

The Academy had officially adopted the moniker by 1939.

Edith Head: The legendary costume designer at one time was designing costumes for every actor and actress in Hollywood and has designed some of the finest costumes ever for films.

Another shoe-in is Allison Janney for Best Supporting Actress, playing the abusive, vitriolic mother in "I, Tanya".

After Meryl, Jack Nicholson and Katharine Hepburn are tied, with 12 nominations each.

Clooney was nominated for best actor for his role as a "fixer" for a corporate law firm in the film Michael Clayton.

A film with a female perspective has not won best picture since Million Dollar Baby in 2005 and coming of age tale Lady Bird would be a popular victor with supporters of the #MeToo and Time's Up campaigns demanding justice for sexual misconduct victims and fair treatment for women in the workplace. The public's front-runner for Best Actor from the nominees?

Meanwhile, after Heath had turned in a brilliant performance as The Joker in Batman flick The Dark Knight, he passed away from complications from mixing his prescription drugs.

"I would not have thought that it would have worked well, but it works very well", she said.

He also worked as a director and writer, amongst other things, so there was plenty of potential for Walt to win.

Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal are only getting worse
"Last season there was anger from supporters and marches against Arsene Wenger , which I thought were a disgrace", Carragher told Sky Sports .

"Consensus agrees that it's time for the Mexican auteur to join his two compatriots Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity") and Alejando Gonzalez Inarritu ("Birdman", "The Revenant"), in the Oscar winners circle", wrote Travers. As disheartening as that was, I was really disappointed The Academy did not nominate Dee Rees for Best Director, which goes down as one of the biggest snubs in recent memory.

The ceremony could also yield a number of history-making records and milestones. But we think 25 Oscars would have been enough to keep him smiling.

Call Me By Your Name follows the story of Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer), whose relationship with each other changes from friendship to a more romantic one along the way.

"We are not an awards show protest group", director Ava DuVernay said on Thursday, according to a Los Angeles Times report.

Tommy Wiseau's cult so-bad-it's-good movie The Room is the inspiration for Academy Award-nominated film The Disaster Artist, but the enigmatic director wasn't invited to the ceremony itself.

In 2008, Jennifer Hudson hit the red carpet in a white Roberto Cavalli dress, the year after she won an Oscar for best supporting actress for Dreamgirls.

In 1998 Nicholson won an Oscar for best actor in As Good as it Gets.

In 90 years of awards, do any films in particular stand out? There is one woman, Mary H. Ellis, included among the 25 people nominated in the two sound categories.

While some winners can be thoughtful, amusing or endearing in their acceptance speeches, others take the opportunity to try to steal the show by delivering orations that seem an extension of their acting.

The much-anticipated culminating night for Hollywood is just right around the corner, as the annual Oscars event is set to arrive on March 4, just a few weeks after another big event, the Grammys.
