Oscars 2019 – Best Actress

This year for the Best Actress in a Leading Role is a pretty strong one in all honesty and I personally think that is a fantastic thing for women in film! Considering everything that has happened in a past year or two we have seen a rise in good roles for women.

Music Stars at the Movies

I have recently re-watched the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born and I then received this amazing infographic from Betway with fantastic research around awards and music stars which just seemed like perfect timing. While Lady Gaga has been nominated for her amazing turn in A Star Is Born, the transition from music to film is not always a smooth one. This makes for interesting reading in all honesty, to show that they are either a massive hit or a masssive flop!

91st Oscars®, Nominees Luncheon, Class Photo

Each year in the build up to the Oscar ceremony The Academy host a Luncheon for all of the nominees and previous winners as well I must add. This happened yesterday and something that it always creates is some great photos!

I also must mention that Richard E. Grant is already winning Oscar season with his fanboy nature at all of the awards events and taking many selfies with different actors! (Richard E. Grant’s Twitter feed).

The Favourite leads the way with 10 nominations but is it the favourite to win?

The Favourite along with Roma have both been nominated for 10 Oscars which is the most for 2019. This year feels a little bit strange though when it comes to awards season and I don’t particularly have a film that I am backing all the way in terms of totally loving it. Unlike previous years, so I guess it makes this year a little bit more interesting in terms of who could win on the night. It feels a little bit more open!

A couple of surprise omissions happened though with Timothee Chalamet overlooked for his incredible performance in Beautiful Boy and not forgetting that, Bradley Cooper didn’t get a nomination as Best Director which therefore leaves Cuaron as the biggest lock of the entire ceremony in the Best Director category.
