The Academy Awards is facing quite a predicament about selecting a host for its 2019 ceremony. After tapping, then ditching, Kevin Hart due to some jokes he made about homosexuality a decade ago, they are left carefully contemplating his replacement. It wasn’t long after his announcement as host that the outrage mob was demanding an […]

“The Americans” had never won a major Primetime Emmy Award until September. It had never been nominated for Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes until last week. Now it can continue its “better late than never” run on Wednesday with its first-ever Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations. The beloved FX drama, which finished its six-season run in May, is predicted to earn three nominations, for its ensemble and stars Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell. For all the flak that the Emmys got for being slow to recognize “The Americans,” it’s a little surprising that SAG voters had never shortlisted “The Americans” before in any category. It would be a very SAG thing to do to play catch-up with “The Americans” now; however, SAG catch-up usually happens with second-year shows after SAG had overlooked their inaugural outings (see: “Homeland,” “Transparent”). It’s very rare for a show to get its first SAG nominations after it’s already gone off the air following multiple seasons. SEE Golden Globes’ Best Drama Series lineup includes first-time nominees for first time in 42 years Three shows have managed to do this: “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Friday Night Lights” and “Extras.” Patrick Stewart‘s bid for “Star Trek” happened the very first year of the SAG Awards, in 1995, so you could asterisk it since no one had a chance to be nominated before that. The other two shows scored nominations for their respective stars Kyle Chandler, in 2012, and Ricky Gervais, in 2008 — after they each won Emmys a few months earlier (“FNL” did get a stunt ensemble nomination in 2009). Coincidence? We think not. That could bode well for Rhys, who snagged the Best Drama Actor Emmy. It’s like voters’ way of throwing a bone to someone they know they should nominate — or should’ve nominated before. Rhys is currently in the No. 1 spot in our actor predictions, followed by defending champ Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”), Jason Bateman (“Ozark”) and Milo Ventimiglia (“This Is Us”). But can he pull in Russell and his entire cast as well? They’re both in fourth place in their respective races. Russell trails Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Thandie Newton (“Westworld”), and is head of Julia Roberts (“Homecoming”). “The Handmaid’s Tale,” reigning winner “This Is Us” and “Westworld” occupy the top three spots in our ensemble predictions, with “Better Call Saul” in fifth. PREDICT the SAG nominees now; change them until Dec. 12 Be sure to make your SAG Awards predictions so that Hollywood insiders can see how their films and performers are faring in our odds.

Steve McQueen’s “Widows” hasn’t had a great start to awards season so far, getting shut out at the Golden Globe Awards. It did receive one Critics’ Choice Awards nomination on Monday, in Best Ensemble. And with the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations right around the corner on Wednesday, the film could pick up another ensemble bid. The “Widows” cast could benefit from its size, considering SAG voters’ tendency to award bigger casts with the their ensemble prize. All the better if it’s a high-caliber cast like that of “Widows,” which includes Viola Davis, Carrie Coon, Elizabeth Debicki, Robert Duvall, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Liam Neeson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jackie Weaver. Not to mention, the impressive cast includes many TV stars: Coon (“The Leftovers,” “Fargo”), Davis (“How to Get Away With Murder”), Debicki (“The Night Manager”) and Henry (“Atlanta”). In fact, Davis even took home two consecutive Best TV Drama Actress statuettes in 2015 and 2016 for her role as Annalise Keating on “Murder.” TV pedigree can increase a cast’s chances since the SAG voting body is not only made up of film stars but also TV actors. The cast also features veteran actors who’ve worked with many people in the industry over the years, which is important when you have peers voting for peers. “Widows” also makes great use of its large ensemble, giving each person a moment to shine. Davis delivers a heartbreaking performance as Veronica, who has to pick up the mess her late husband (Neeson) created; Debicki is revelatory as the battered widow Alice who later comes into her own; and Kaluuya is fear-inducing in his bone-chilling portrayal of gang leader Jatemme. SEE Will box office for ‘First Man’ and ‘Widows’ affect their Oscar chances? Critics, too, have singled out the cast as one of the movie’s strengths: Moira Macdonald (The Seattle Times): “But what keeps you transfixed for two hours, occasionally forgetting to breathe, is that murderers’ row of actors, each capable of cutting glass with a gaze.“ David Sims (The Atlantic): “Everyone in the cast gets multiple moments to shine, with Kaluuya playing a particularly frightening sort of terminator, and Debicki dazzling as a woman who’s impossible to judge at face value. But Davis’s superstar performance drives the film — she can silence a room just by entering it, docile Westie in tow.“ Brian Tallerico (RogerEbert.com): “Part of the reason “Widows” stays above the line where it would feel like mere sermon is that it contains the best ensemble of 2018.“ Could the complete shutout at the Golden Globes hurt the cast’s chances here? Not necessarily. Two of last year’s ensemble nominees, “Mudbound” and “The Big Sick,” did not receive a lot of love from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association either. In fact, the former only received nods for Best Supporting Actress (Mary J. Blige) and Best Song (“Mighty River”), while the latter also got a goose egg. The SAG voting body and their tastes are very dissimilar to that of the HFPA. Ensemble nominations often come with at least one individual acting nomination. With eight previous nominations and five wins, Davis is a SAG favorite and could land a spot in the lead actress lineup. After his lead nomination for “Get Out” last year, Kaluuya may have an outside chance of sneaking into the supporting field. And while a supporting bid for Debicki is more of a longshot, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility, as she’s been singled out for her breakthrough performance. In our combined odds, the cast of “Widows” is currently in fifth place with odds of 8/1 and would thus make the lineup alongside the other four projected nominees, “The Favourite,” “A Star Is Born,” “Vice” and “Crazy Rich Asians.” PREDICT the SAG nominees now; change them until Dec. 12 Be sure to make your SAG Awards predictions so that Hollywood insiders can see how their films and performers are faring in our odds.

The Critics’ Choice Award nominations announced on Monday (Dec. 10) follow on the heels of the Golden Globe ones last Thursday.  The Broadcast Film Critics Assn. tout these awards as the most accurate preview of the Oscar nominations. They achieve this stellar success rate by nominating a full 10 films for Best Picture (the Oscars have between 5 and 10) as well as six or seven contenders in the acting and directing races (the academy allows only five slots per category). With that stat in mind, we take a closer look at the nominations in the analysis below to see which films are up, down and about the same in the race for the Academy Awards. SEE Critics’ Choice Awards 2019: ‘The Favourite’ is just that with 14 nominations but watch out for ‘Black Panther’ UP “Black Panther” — After making history as the first comic book movie to reap a bid for Best Drama at the Globes, it did marvellously well with the broadcast film critics, reaping a whopping 12 nominations. Ten of those are in races that have equivalents at the Oscars. Among these are a supporting acting bid by Michael B. Jordan and another for the adapted screenplay. “The Favourite” — Yorgos Lanthimos‘ period piece leads with 14 nominations, including Best Picture and for all three women at the center of the story (leading lady Olivia Colman and supporting players Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz). After being snubbed by the HFPA, Lanthimos is in the running here for Best Director. “First Man” — This biopic of astronaut Neil Armstrong failed to lift off at the Globes, earning just two nominations for featured actress Claire Foy and score. The Critics’ Choice gave it a big boost with 10 nominations, including Best Picture, Director (Damien Chazelle) and for leading man Ryan Gosling. “A Star is Born” — It ties with “The Favourite” as the film with the most acting nominations. As expected Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper reaped leading bids. And Sam Elliott, who was snubbed by the Globes, contends in supporting. Cooper is also cited for his directing and writing. SEE 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards film nominations: Full list led by ‘The Favourite,’ ‘Black Panther,’ ‘First Man’ … SAME “Green Book” — Following its warm reception from the Hollywood foreign press, this period charmer did just as well with the BFCA. Besides the expected bids for Best Picture, leading man Viggo Mortensen and supporting player Mahershala Ali, it also earned recognition for director Peter Farrelly (who got in over “Beale Street” helmer Barry Jenkins) and the script. “Roma” – Coming off a weekend when it won Best Picture from five regional critics groups. Alfonso Cuaron‘s intimate memoir earned eight nominations, including one for film newcomer Yalitza Aparicio. Cuaron accounts for half of that haul as he contends for directing, screenplay, cinematography and film editing. “Vice” – After leading the Golden Globes, Adam McKay‘s satirical biopic of Vice President Dick Cheney earned nine nominations here. McKay reaped bids for both writing and directing and both Christian Bale and Amy Adams contend here as they do at the Globes. But the critics passed on the scene stealing supporting performance of Sam Rockwell. DISCUSS All the Critics’ Choice contenders with Hollywood insiders in our notorious forums DOWN “If Beale Street Could Talk” — We thought that the critics would embrace Barry Jenkins‘s follow-up to his Oscar-winning “Moonlight” even more. While they gave it five nominations, including Best Picture, Jenkins was left out of the line-up for Best Director despite there being seven slots. “Widows” — Steve McQueen’s crime thriller was robbed, with just one nomination in a category with an Oscar equivalent (editing). Its other two bids are for Best Ensemble and Best Action Movie

Listen up, Golden Globe seating-chart person. I realize that TV nominees tend to get the cheap seats far from the stage compared to the high-falutin’ movie stars who attend this rehearsal for the Academy Awards. But if you want to make sure that this year’s show has real drama, try to put Sacha Baron Cohen – a nominee competing as a TV comedy actor for his political satire Showtime series, “Who Is America?” – in the sight line of the table reserved for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which is nominated for Best Motion Picture — Drama,  while its star, Rami Malek, is up for his role as Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer of the British rock band Queen. Baron Cohen, you see, was originally supposed to play Mercury way back in 2010 – primarily, one presumes, for his uncanny resemblance to the icon.  But, in 2013, he and Queen lead guitarist Brian May, an executive producer on the film along with drummer Roger Taylor, had a falling out about his approach to playing Mercury. In 2016, Baron Cohen told Howard Stern he dropped out because the band wanted a more PG-version of singer’s life and for the their  story to play a bigger part. Basically, they had creative differences. As those who have seen the worldwide smash know, a compromise  of sorts was struck with a PG-13 rating for “thematic elements, suggestive material, drug content and language.” SEE Golden Globes nominations 2019: Full list of film and TV nominees In 2013, when Baron Cohen dropped out, May said that the band felt that the actor’s presence in the movie “would be very distracting … The man who plays Freddie, you have to really believe is Freddie. And we didn’t think that could really happen with Sacha.” More recently, May told “Classic Rock Magazine” that the casting choice “was a near-disaster. I think we realized just in time what a disaster that was going to be.” Taylor also chimed in to the Associated Press after the film was released, saying of Baron Cohen, “I don’t think he took it seriously enough – didn’t take Freddie seriously enough.” Those words are a bit harsher as they put more blame on Baron Cohen’s acting ability than their own approach to the film. All that leads to the Golden Globes. Everyone knows the star of “Borat” is a notorious prankster and loves nothing better than to disrupt an awards show.  Recall that he spilled Kim Jong II’s purported ashes on Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet of the 2012 Oscars. And at the BAFTA Awards in 2013, when he received the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy, Baron Cohen sent a stunt woman sitting in a wheelchair while posing as an elderly former child actress who worked with the silent-era actor sailing off the stage and into the audience. SEE Golden Globes nominations 2019: Who’s up (‘Vice,’ ‘BlacKkKlansman’), who’s down (‘First Man’) in the Oscar race? Therefore, I suspect the notorious prankster might have some tricks up his sleeve when the 76th Golden Globes ceremony takes place on Jan. 6. Who knows? He could come as his version of Freddie Mercury that was cruelly kept from being seen by all of us and save the awards show from being a “near-disaster.”
