DiCaprio to blame? The biggest moment of the 2017 Oscars came when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly announced ‘La La Land’ as the Best Picture winner when the actual winner was ‘Moonlight’. It’s since emerged that Beatty was actually holding the envelope for Best Actress which announced ‘La La Land’s Emma Stone as the winner, so you can understand the confusion from the presenters. Some people on Twitter are suggesting that it’s all Leonardo DiCaprio’s fault.
30 years ago this month, Hollywood’s best and brightest gathered together to celebrate the greatest cinematic achievements of the year, one of which just happened to be the super-gross practical effects of David Cronenberg’s ‘The Fly’. Like the Academy honoured Seth Brundle’s grisly transformation from man to fly, we now honour the greatest and most disgusting visual effects in movie history.
‘La La Land’ was the big winner of the 2017 British Academy Film Awards picking up 5 awards in total. Here’s who won the big prizes on the night.
The nominations for the 89th Oscars are being announced on Tuesday (24 January) afternoon at 1:18pm, and we’ll be hosting the Academy Awards livestream right here on Yahoo Movies. Jennifer Hudson, Brie Larson, Emmanuel Lubezki, Jason Reitman and Ken Watanabe will join Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs to make the announcement.
Tonight, Sylvester Stallone’s three daughters share the duties of Miss Golden Globe: the first time the title (traditionally given to a promising young talent from a famous family) has been bestowed simultaneously on siblings. The Stallone sisters — Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14 — captured the world’s attention at last year’s Golden Globes ceremony when they walked the red carpet with their father (who took home his first-ever Globe that night for Creed) and mother Jennifer Flavin.
No doubt about it, Miss Golden Globe is the most nepotistic title in Tinseltown. A fixture at the Hollywood Foreign Press’ annual ceremony since 1963, the designation originally was bestowed to up-and-coming performers in film and TV. For the past four decades, the title became less laudatory and more honorary, specifically going to Hollywood offspring (typically female, but there have been a couple Mr. Golden Globes along the way) who aspired to follow in their parents’ vaunted footsteps.
