Our 2019 Oscar Nominations Predictions: And The Nominees Are…

oscar2019

It’s award season again and all of Hollywood elite is on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the 2019 Oscar nominees. From actors who transformed themselves for biopics to crime fighters to magical nannies who fly over houses.  This year’s nominees may be eerily similar to this year’s Golden Globe nods, but we can never pass up an opportunity to give our take on who we’d like to see nab a trophy.  

In the ‘Best Motion Picture’ category we foresee at least eight films being nominated this year.   Our picks include: “Black Panther,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Green Book,” “BlacKkKlansman,” Bohemian Rhapsody,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “Vice,” and “A Star Is Born.” Our money is on the critically acclaimed “If Beale Street Could Talk,” which has received rave reviews and support from theater goers and critics. 

This year’s “Best Actor in a Motion Picture” category will likely feature a mix of actors who took on real-life portrayals and actors who poured their heart into innovative roles.  Our picks are: Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”), Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), Christian Bale (“Vice”), Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”), and John C. Reilly (“Stan & Ollie”).  The Academy could put a twist on things and nominate Robert Redford for his outstanding role in “The Old Man & the Gun,” but our guess is that they’ll nominate John C. Reilly for his uncanny portrayal of Oliver Hardy in “Stan & Ollie” instead. 

This year’s “Best Actress in a Motion Picture” category will be a nail-biter.  Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) have both been receiving praise and awards for their respective roles.  The duo even tied for the “Best Actress” trophy at the Critics’ Choice Awards, so it would come as no surprise if the Academy opted to give the statue to both ladies – an occurrence that hasn’t happened since both Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand took home the trophy 50 years ago. Rounding out the rest of our picks for this category include Nicole Kidman (“Destroyer”), Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins Returns”), and Rosamund Pike (“A Private War”). 

For the “Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture” category there’s no need to list all of our choices, as there is only one woman who we have our money on; it’s none other than Regina King for her phenomenal performance in  “If Beale Street Could Talk.”  King has been a standout actress from the first time she appeared on the screen in the hit 1980s series, “227.” She emerges herself into every role she takes on and she did the same here. 

The Best Actor in a Supporting Role” category will have some familiar winners this year.  Mahershala Ali who won for “Best Actor” in 2016 for “Moonlight” is a big contender for his work in the movie “Green Book.”  He already won the Golden Globe Award for “Best Supporting Actor” for the film, so he seems to be the likely winner here.  Another familiar face we know we’ll see on the roster this year is Sam Rockwell. The actor won this award in 2018 for the film,  “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Rockwell’s performance in “Vice” has created a lot of buzz this season, but sadly we don’t see a repeat win here. Some other notable favorites of ours for this category include Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”). 

For “Best Animated Film,” the Academy will give nods to “The Incredibles 2,” “Small Foot,” “The Grinch,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” and “Hotel Transylvania.”  We are fully backing a win for “The Incredibles 2” in this category!

We are also giving honorable mention to the song “Shallow” from the movie “A Star is Born.”  There is no doubt that the track will take home “Song of the Year.” Both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were a match made in heaven to collaborate on singing the song. 

With the Oscars not having a host this year, viewers can look forward to seeing some of their favs that took home awards at the Golden Globes,  do the exact same thing here. Repetition can be annoying in everyday life, but when you’re an actor, it’s a great thing.

Don’t forget to see who takes home a coveted statue, when the 2019 Oscars airs on Sunday, February 24 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

Kate Upton does double duty for the Spring 2014 issue of V magazine.

The model is featured both clothed and in a swimsuit for the covers.

In this issue, Upton reveals that she was hurt when Victoria’s Secret casting director Sophia Neophitou said “we would never use” her for a photo shoot in 2012.

She told V Magazine, “I had just gotten my cover of Sports Illustrated that day. I wasn’t used to that kind of media swirl.”

“I had never met her, so it really came out of nowhere. It was my introduction to being in the spotlight and having people you’ve never met have an opinion of you.”

Madonna Tops Forbes’ 2013 List of the World’s Highest-Paid Musicians

Madonna tops Forbes List of the World’s Highest-Paid Musicians 2013.

Madge accumulated $125 million over the past year, with the majority of those funds coming from her MDNA tour, which grossed a whopping $305 million.

Lady Gaga placed second on the list, by achieving $80 million in 2013. The singer would have made more if she hadn’t cancelled her Born This Way tour.

Bon Jovi grabbed the No. 3 spot with $79 million; Toby Keith made $65 million and Coldplay earned $64 million.

The deceased Michael Jackson would have been the clear winner, if his earnings counted. He made $160 million in 2013.

 

Lady Gaga Wants to Have Tons of Kids

Lady Gaga is only 27-years-old, but that’s not going to stop her from having tons of kids.

SiriusXM caught up with the singer, as she dished on wanting a family.

“I want to have tons of kids, actually. I think at least three,” the “Applause” singer told SiriusXM listeners gathered Friday for a Town Hall discussion at SiriusXM studios in New York City.

“I really want to have a family and I really want to nurture my children,” said Gaga.

She continued, “To be honest, having my own kids will be like having three little monsters with me all the time. They probably won’t be fans,” she added.

Gaga’s close relationship with her family is what makes her want to have a large family.

“I grew up with a very strong family and I just cannot imagine not having a normal nuclear family,” she said.

Despite the recent break up rumors, Gaga and boyfriend Taylor Kinney are still going strong.   The songstress did not specify whether or not Kinney is the person she wants to build a family with.  She has, however, set up ship in Chicago, where Kinney films Chicago Fire.

Lady Gaga Covers ‘attitude’ Magazine [December’13]

attitude-gaga

 

Lady Gaga‘s got a new attitude!!

The “Do What U Want” singer covers the December issue of attitude magazine. In this holiday issues, Gaga reveals that she smoked 15 marijuana blunts in one day. In addition to that, Gaga chats about her feud with Madonna. Check out some snippets from her feature below.

On using marijuana as a pain reliever:
“I was smoking 15 joints a day. It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip. I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself and then sleeping it off and then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was.”

On her crew’s help with kicking the addiction:
“[My performance artist Marina Abramovic] said, ‘OK, you’re coming to my house – no television, no computer, no marijuana, no nothing, not food. For three days, art only. You eat only art. Now I smoke a little bit at night just, you know, for fun. But not to cope – that’s the difference. I’m the soberest I’ve ever been in the past five years.”

On her feud with Madonna:
“I I looked up to her for a long time. I’m not quite sure what her intention was [with the ‘Born This Way] and ‘Express Yourself’ mashup performance] to do that in the show, but I don’t really care. I think playing in the gossip of the tabloids and, I guess the fodder of the competition, that’s just not what I’m about. She chooses to use her voice the way she chooses to use hers and I choose to use mine the way I use mine. All it mean to me that Madonna Ciccone was singing my song on her stage and I’m 27! And as a punk-rocker from New York, I’m basically been hoping that I would become so good that one day I would piss off Madonna!”
