Can you guess the Best Picture victor from its final line?

Oscars 2018 Fever A triumph for the black acting minority? I don't buy

Will the two complete it with an Oscar statuette on Sunday?

Do you know, though, what the significance of that trophy is, or when the Academy Awards even began?

But concludes that Nolan is a long shot, "the only precedent for a win with Nolan's awards season record is Ang Lee ("Life of Pi"), who won in a year that Ben Affleck (director of best picture "Argo") was somewhat notoriously snubbed".

The number of spokes was no coincidence. The writer-director-producer-actor is only the third person to pull this off on their first feature as a director. And putting on an awards show is simply a notoriously hard task, constantly plagued by the possibility that a monologue will be felled by a bad joke, or that presenters will reveal bad chemistry. When the history of Oscars are discussed, his name is certain to come up.

- Rachel Morrison is the first woman ever nominated for the Oscar for best cinematography for her work on "Mudbound", so she could break another glass ceiling with a win.

D'Imperio said of McDormand, "Her performance of a revenge-seeking, still-grieving mother of a murdered teenage daughter, is taut, edgy and explosive".

Columnist Sidney Skolsky was there when Margaret noted the similarity, and wrote the heading: "Employees have affectionately dubbed their famous statuette Oscar".

Streep's nomination is the 21st of her career, and the 17th as best actress, extending her lead as the performer with the most career Oscar nominations.

When the Time's Up movement was officially unveiled on the Golden Globes red carpet, its organizers, who include some of Hollywood's biggest stars, pledged that it was a movement with lasting power.

After Meryl, Jack Nicholson and Katharine Hepburn are tied, with 12 nominations each. The 90th Academy Awards will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood at 5 PM PST.

The oldest victor is Christopher Plummer, Best Supporting Actor for Beginners, in 2012, at 82. This film also won the SAG Award in the same category.

Peter had succumbed to a heart attack in the January, and when he won the Best Actor title, for Network, his wife collected it.

Shortly before his death, he'd said The Joker had been his favourite role, so it's fitting he was commended for the performance.

Agent Genalo also addressed ICE's controversial practice of arresting undocumented immigrants in and around a courthouse. As the Trump Administration pursues their political plan of haphazardly punishing sanctuary cities, we will not cower.

Keeping the more than three-hour show - usually the most-watched non-sports telecast each year in the United States - upbeat in a year overshadowed by allegations of sexual assault will also be a tough challenge. With females such as Greta Gerwig who is nominated for "Best Director" for her film Lady Bird, making Greta just the fifth female director to receive a nomination in this category.

As well as having the most wins, Walt can claim to have more nominations than anyone else. According to our official racetrack odds, seven of the nine Best Picture nominees will take home at least one Oscar.

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.

So instead of watching the Academy Awards either to validate your taste or to tell yourself that everyone else's taste is trash and you're the only true aesthete alive, treat the Oscars like a look inside the academy's collective brain.

And "Dunkirk" will go three for eight, winning Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing.

Critics have suggested that Oldman will take home the win because of his innate acting abilities that provided such an accurate portrayal of Winston Churchill, coupled with his veteran status as an actor.

There are several firsts in this years award show. In terms of numerous wins, yes.

② When someone gets played off the stage during their acceptance speech.

Every Oscars ceremony serves up some shocks, however, so don't count out "Get Out", the third favorite ahead of outsiders "Lady Bird" and "Dunkirk". It has emerged as one of the more influential and revered films of its time.

Accepting the Irving G Thalberg Memorial Award in 1968, the Master of Suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock, uttered just five words. Sometimes a modest "thank you" is good enough.

Patty Duke was even less verbose in 1963.

McDormand took best actress at both the SAG Awards and Golden Globes. Many predictions for the Oscar winners stem from an overwhelming sense that whatever film dominates previous awards shows (the SAG Awards, Golden Globes, etc.) will more than likely be the victor, though this isn't always the case.
