And why? There s an air of inevitability around Nomadland, and it s hard to argue with over 150 wins across various awards ceremonies this year – it has more Best Picture wins from different awards bodies than any other nominee. But the same was said of La La Land, Get Out, and Roma their respective years and all of them lost in the end. If there is a film that could unseat the Nomadland Goliath, it is Aaron Sorkin s The Trial of the Chicago 7. An additional wrinkle is the fact many voters haven t seen as much as they normally would, and apathy may trump inevitability. Be prepared, though: we could even see a shocker like Judas and the Black Messiah or Promising Young Woman winning it all come Sunday, but our money is still on Nomadland. Best Actor In a Leading Role(Photo by © Netflix)Who will win?Chadwick Boseman – Ma Rainey s Black BottomAnd why? Though Anthony Hopkins is a potential spoiler for his turn as an Alzheimer s sufferer in The Father, this Oscar is Boseman s, which is what we ve been saying since the film debuted last Fall. And while some will say he will win because of his untimely death, he deserves the win for his performance alone – and it will be a fitting tribute to his legacy.Best Actress In A Leading Role(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)Who will win?Viola Davis – Ma Rainey s Black BottomAnd why? In truth, we don t know about this one. Andra Day won the Golden Globe for The United States Vs. Billie Holiday, Carey Mulligan took home the Critics Choice for Promising Young Woman, Frances McDormand won the BAFTA for Nomadland, and Viola Davis took home the SAG Award. Without indicative wins to really give us a clear favorite, we are putting the most weight behind the SAG honor. As McDormand is listed as a producer for Nomadland, it is assumed she is not going home empty-handed given that film will likely win Best Picture, so why not give this one to Davis, who s already down one Oscar after losing for her worthy work in Doubt. Best Actor In a Supporting RoleWho will win?Daniel Kaluuya – Judas and the Black MessiahAnd why? Daniel Kaluuya has been pretty unstoppable since the crime thriller committed to the season earlier this year. With wins at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs, SAGs, and Critic s Choice Awards, if the Get Out star didn t win by some fluke, it would be one of the biggest upset in Oscars history. (*whispers*: And that s just NOT gonna happen.)Best Actress In A Supporting Role(Photo by © A24 / Courtesy Everett Collection)Who will win?Youn Yuh-jung – MinariAnd why? Sorry, Madam Glenn Close, we want you to get that golden statue as much as anyone, but Hillbilly Elegy was – let s say – not your best outing, at least according to the critics. We re even more determined she stay seated when the winner is read, as her win would knock out Youn Yuh-jung, brilliant as a grandmother like none you ve met in Lee Isaac Chung s moving family drama, Minari, and who is just as deserving as any other veteran for the work she s given us over five decades.Best Animated Feature FilmWho will win? (Photo by Marvel Studios)As WandaVision enters into its final moments, answers come in abundance. Well, provided Wanda s (Elizabeth Olsen) memories are correct, of course. And while her guide through past traumas may not be all that benevolent, confronting those incidents may be beneficial in the end.Or, perhaps, the fear of what Wanda could be is just too much for some to handle. Either way, Wanda has a new title to deal with on top of her unresolved griefs. And though Vision (Paul Bettany) may have tried to reframe what grief is, it s still going to take a superhero therapist to help Wanda through it all.Is Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) applying for the job?Before we can answer that question, let s take a look at the answers WandaVision finally offered this week for some added insight.Spoiler Alert: This article reveals details from WandaVision episode 8 “Previously On.” Stop here if you have not watched the episode.The Hex Was Wanda s DoingDebbie DayOnce Agatha revealed herself last week, it was tempting to wonder if the entire Hex was part of her spell. The Darkhold — if that book in her basement is The Darkhold — has to potential to power something on the scale of Westview. But it turns out the Hex is genuinely Wanda s creation. In fact, the ability to spontaneously keep it running is what compelled Agatha to Westview in the first place.In terms of a Marvel Cinematic Universe plot, that understanding is important because it means Wanda is still ultimately in control of the thing and will have to answer for it at some point. But perhaps more important than the legal challenges she may face in the future is the revelation that all the imagery within Westview was her choosing.As we learned this week, the Maximoff family was learning English via DVD box sets of American sitcoms. Young Wanda s (Michaela Russell) father Olek (Daniyar) amassed a collection ranging from I Love Lucy to Malcolm in the Middle. And though he seemed to be selling the lot for the sake of the family, he hid the series set of The Dick Van Dyke show in the wall because it was Wanda s favorite — her favorite episode is itself a love letter to television. That appreciation of sitcoms comes from one of the most benign forms of American imperialism: the export of old television. Sadly, one of the worst aspects of imperialism comes crashing down on the family shortly thereafter: some Stark Industries bombs.In a curious twist, though, it turns out the second bomb Wanda and young Pietro (Gabriel Gurevich) thought to be a dud was altered to fail by Wanda s incipient powers. The magic was always within her.And considering the flashback to Agatha s witch trial in 1693, it is entirely possible she wants that power for herself.The TV Shows Really Mattered to WandaBeyond her Sokovian childhood, the TV shows continued to matter as they offered Wanda an out in troubled times. Dick Van Dyke will always represent the before time, but now we see The Brady Bunch is tied to her time with Hydra — an anti-freedom terrorist organization, as Agatha put it.Although, by taking us back to Hydra, WandaVision offers us a new spin on things: joining up was Wanda s attempt to avoid grieving for her parents. Instead of doing that, she hoped to change the world with a bunch of fascists because they also had beef with Stark. It s certainly bad judgement on her part, but it is interesting to note how she evades her misgivings, particularly after her encounter with the Mind Stone, with a Brady Bunch episode about whopping misunderstandings.Similarly, she turned to Malcolm in the Middle after Pietro s death and, subsequently, to Vision to avoid dealing with the grief. Although, it is interesting to see the first inklings of their relationship in this context. Wanda says the Avengers campus is the first home they shared, but the scene itself is still from early in their time there. At that point, they lived in separate rooms and Wanda often reminded Vision about her boundaries. Also, we couldn t help but notice the way she bossed him around and his own trepidation around her. Granted, Vision was still quite a young lifeform trying to learn all of humanity s complexities via Wanda at that point and is clearly deferring to the person with more experience.And, yet, he seems to understand a philosophical aspect of grief that Wanda does not because she cannot deal with her traumas. Somehow, that makes him the perfect companion.We re going to assume Family Ties and Modern Family also became her go-to shows after other events. The commercials in previous episodes seem to recount the traumas — the beeping on the Stark toaster mirroring the beeping of the Stark ordinance — so perhaps, the Keatons helped Wanda after the mess in Lagos (as depicted in Captain America: Civil War).Modern Family appears to be the odd show out as the Nexus commercial has nothing to do with Thanos or Vision s death. Maybe it was Agatha s choice since she added the false Pietro (Evan Peters) — Fietro, if you will — by that point. If so, that may be a clue to her endgame.Wanda Built Her House Atop the Ruined Shell of AnotherWe also learned Westview, New Jersey, is, in fact, real despite the Eastview sheriff denying it to Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Paris) and Jimmy Woo (Randall Park). Based on Wanda s drive through town after her visit to S.W.O.R.D. — more on that in a bit — we get the impression it suffered greatly from the Blip. In fact, that economic devastation seemed so severe that the return of all the people lost five years earlier offered the town no solace. The people seemed as broken as Wanda herself.And then comes the most heartbreaking revelation: Vision bought them the plot at 2800 Sherwood Drive so they could grow old together.Sadly, though, there is no house at 2800; just the suggestion of one. It was the final blow to Wanda s wounded psyche and we empathize with her utterly. Also, from Agatha s point of view, it was the moment Wanda came into true possession of her powers. Overcome with grief, her magic transformed Westview in a Dick Van Dyke suburb, the plot into a home, and conjured a new Vision from magical matter. It s an gangbuster scene both in terms of the raw emotion and what it tells us about Wanda s powers.But let s back up to S.W.O.R.D. as it pertains to the new Vision.The timeline is a little fuzzy, but we re going to assume Wanda visited the S.W.O.R.D. base a handful of days after the final fight in Avengers: Endgame. There, she learned Director Hayward (Josh Stamberg) and S.W.O.R.D. techs have been dismantling Vision because it is their legal and ethical obligation to recreate the most advanced sentient weapon ever created. Or, at the very least, maintain custody of the billion worth of vibranium in his corpse. It is a gruesome way to regard someone as gentle as Vis, but it is entirely in keeping with what we know about Hayward — in fact, it underscores the first lie he told the S.W.O.R.D. field team and viewers some weeks ago.After facing the dismantled Vision, Wanda seemingly processed that shock and left without the pieces of him. But in episode 5, Hayward showed the field team video of Wanda taking Vision s body. Some always suspected the footage was doctored and it turned out to be the case. Hayward always had Vision. This explains why the New Vision started to disintegrate as he tried to leave the Hex. It does not explain, however, how Hayward was able to track him within its borders.Now that he has seemingly resurrected the original Vision, we still have to wonder about his true aim. Perhaps, like Agatha, he seeks to possess Wanda s seeming ability to warp reality. But it is also possible he sees bigger opportunities in that power beyond sentient weapons. Then again, he may be blind to a wider vision (sorry) and just wants Wanda to power a Synthezoid army.Oh, but we should mention that he is convinced Wanda can resurrect Vis before the Hex. Why would he even suspect that?Meanwhile, it is devastating to think Vision was so convinced he and Wanda would be able to live together peacefully that bought a plot of land in suburban New Jersey. Similarly devastating: She will have to face off against his icy-looking reanimated corpse next week.What Is Agatha s Endgame? And What Is A Scarlet Witch?(Photo by Marvel Studios)Although she is strangling Billy (Julian Hilliard) and Tommy (Jett Klyne) and wearing a full evil witch costume, there is still the possibility that Agatha s true purpose at the end of this episode is, ultimately, beneficial. The entire trip through Wanda s memories forced her to see all the ways she s avoided grief and how it led to the Hex. Then there s the statement about a Scarlet Witch being dangerous and a figure of myth.Which leads to the question: What is a Scarlet Witch? The term seemingly has no other significance beyond Wanda s comic book history, so the show may be creating a new idea here with Wanda and her Chaos Magic. If that is the case, Agatha will need to give us another exposition dump next week to understand its significance. But, for the moment at least, it indicates the hue of Wanda s power actually matters. We ve always suspected the red energy she commands tied her to the Reality Stone despite her powers seemingly emanating from
Sixth time is the charm for the Transformers franchise, as Bumblebee looks to be the first Fresh installment in the series. Starting with the 2007 original, the Michael Bay-helmed series has only managed Rotten Tomatometer scores, with an average of 29%. Now, with a change in director and nostalgic setting, the new prequel is a wholly enjoyable throwback, according to the first wave of reviews – as of Monday morning, it was at 95% on the Tomatometer with 21 reviews logged. Not everyone agrees this is the best Transformers movie ever, since the first one has its fans, but there aren’t really any complaints here. Writer Christina Hodson, director Travis Knight, and Hailee Steinfeld seem to have delivered the Transformer goods.Here’s what the critics are saying about Bumblebee:So the Transformers series is back on track?Bumblebee redeems and reinvigorates the Transformers live-action film franchise with some heartfelt fun…the best live-action Transformers movie since the 2007 film. Jim Vejvoda, IGN[Christina] Hodson layers in a sense of wonder and discovery that effectively recaptures the innovation and energy of the 2007 original. Justin Lowe, The Hollywood ReporterKnight and Hodson have salvaged something agreeable from an otherwise badly dented series. Kevin Harley, Total FilmIs it the best of the series?The best Transformers movie so far, going all the way back to the 1986 animated film. William Bibbiani, The WrapThe most human Transformers movie yet. Robbie Collin, The TelegraphThe film’s noticeably more humorous tone is also an improvement upon its predecessors, which typically tend to be overly self-serious. Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter(Photo by © Paramount Pictures)So fans of Transformers in the 80s will be happy?Bumblebee is basically the movie that fans of the 1980s animated series wanted all along. Peter Debruge, VarietyBumblebee is the live-action Transformers movie we all wanted in the 80s. Fred Topel, We Live EntertainmentDoes it ever feel like just more of the same?If you hated the backyard scene in Transformers, there’s a lot more of that in Bumblebee. Fred Topel, We Live EntertainmentIs it just an E.T. wannabe?It’s an effective reimagining that also bears a knowing resemblance to classic youth-oriented films from Bumblebee executive producer Steven Spielberg. Justin Lowe, The Hollywood ReporterAn ’80s pairing of child and creature that (deliberately) conjures Elliott and E.T…. Steven Spielberg’s DNA feels baked into Bumblebee. James Dyer, EmpireFollowing the superior models of E.T. and The Iron Giant, becomes a sweetly amusing, semi-Spielbergian tale of intergalactic friendship. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesScreenwriter Christina Hodson clearly imagined Bumblebee as a throwback to classic Amblin-style boy-and-his-dog movies, directly channeling elements of such films as E.T. Peter Debruge, VarietyBumblebee is an 80s movie through and through, not just in terms of its period setting but also in its execution, establishing a tone and pace reminiscent of your typical Amblin production of that era and of teen-driven genre flicks like WarGames and Short Circuit. Jim Vejvoda, IGNThe 1987 soundtrack goes a long way towards making Bumblebee feel like a film from the summer of Adventures in Babysitting and Harry and the Hendersons. Fred Topel, We Live EntertainmentKnight’s plot lifts – E.T., The Iron Giant — are transparent, but at least he lifts from the best and makes warm work of the job. Kevin Harley, Total Film(Photo by © Paramount Pictures)How is Hailee Steinfeld?Steinfeld sparkles…both an empathic force as well as a damn action hero — she’s Fay Wray with agency. Liz Shannon Miller, IndieWireSteinfeld grounds Bumblebee beautifully, with a rich and specific performance that never once treats the bizarre sci-fi events with ironic detachment or cynicism. William Bibbiani, The WrapWhere Bay’s movies often objectified its female characters, Bumblebee gives us a young woman who’s smart, vulnerable and nuanced. Tim Grierson, Screen InternationalCharlie spends more time under cars than draped over them…Whether she’s checking her armpits for BO or gently rebuffing Memo’s awkward advances, Charlie plays like a bid to call time on the hot-pants fetishism of Bay’s era. Kevin Harley, Total FilmAnd what about John Cena?The movie’s most memorable human character is played by John Cena…he also brings a welcome sense of humor to the mix. Peter Debruge, VarietyIt’s John Cena, as walking side of beef Agent Burns, who proves the most flat-out enjoyable. James Dyer, EmpireThe only disappointment is John Cena’s military character. Mike Ryan, UproxxHis performance as a military man is about as subtle as a Hulk Hogan leg drop to the face…the transforming robots are more believable. Luke Y. Thompson, NerdistDoes Bumblebee have a memorable villain?Angela Bassett brings a distinctly menacing gravitas to her vocal performance as Shatter. Jim Vejvoda, IGNBassett, in particular, seems to be having the time of her life in the role of villain, manipulating the humans to do her bidding with an ease that makes sense, because it’s Angela Bassett, after all. Liz Shannon Miller, IndieWireSo director Travis Knight was a good choice?Travis Knight knows how to direct a coherent action sequence. Liz Shannon Miller, IndieWireHe exhibits an instinctual sense for the film’s requisite action quotient while attentively crafting the central characters’ emotional arcs. Justin Lowe, The Hollywood ReporterIn a better, truer cinematic universe, Travis Knight would have been in charge of the Transformers franchise all along. Phil Hoad, The Guardian(Photo by © Paramount Pictures)Do the special effects still amaze?You can actually appreciate the transformations here without them devolving into digital blurs of a million moving parts. Jim Vejvoda, IGNThere are many scenes where giant robots fight each other, and in those scenes, you can actually see what’s happening. Liz Shannon Miller, IndieWireFor arguably the first time in a Transformers film, there are moments when you forget you’re looking at a CG model, and see only the character. Luke Y. Thompson, NerdistIs there anything wrong with Bumblebee?Even the most ardent ’80s nostalgists may wonder at a certain point how many Breakfast Club shoutouts and Smiths T-shirts are enough. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesI get it! It’s 1987! If Bumblebee was an 80s reference drinking game you’d be dead from alcohol poisoning by the midpoint. Jim Vejvoda, IGNAre we left begging for more?If this is where the new Transformers franchise is headed, then let the transformation continue. William Bibbiani, The WrapThis retooling is snappy and wholesome enough to suggest we might still be watching [the franchise] in our self-driving cars. Phil Hoad, The GuardianBumblebee opens everywhere on December 21.亚盈体育官方下载在接受FAMI通采访时，担任手游创意总监的横尾太郎就透露，开发初期便定下了目标，要做一些想象不到的东西，才会给人留下深刻的印象。

Japanese-style animation or anime is more popular than ever – and more accessible.In 2017, Sony Television has purchased popular anime streaming service Funimation and Amazon has folded its Anime Strike VOD service into Prime Video. Crunchyroll, one of the largest producers of anime content in the world, is now owned by AT T. And since 2018, Netflix has doubled down on its production of original anime content and launched @NX, a social media presence dedicated to its fantasy, genre, animation, and anime titles. Although many people are familiar with major anime titles, like Ghost in the Shell and Death Note, the sub-genre of horror anime has been growing in popularity. Horror anime is usually bloody, mildly suggestive, and almost always very creepy. The veneer of animation can make these works less terrifying than live-action horror movies, yet the best of the horror sub-genre often boasts incredible storylines as well as high-quality animation and voice acting. Curious? Here are nine anime horror series that you can stream just in time for Halloween.Tokyo Ghoul 100% What it is: This epic series is set in a world where ghouls – monsters that survive by eating human flesh – live on the outskirts of human society, secretly killing and feeding to survive. The series is the origin story of Ken Kaneki, a human teenager who becomes a half-ghoul after a transplant operation; he now has become his own worst nightmare and has to learn to navigate a world where neither side wants him.Why you should watch: Part horror, part existential think piece, Tokyo Ghoul offers one of the best character arcs since Daenerys Targaryen (and one that feels far less rushed).Episodes: 48Watch time: 19 hoursStreaming on: Hulu, FunimationJunji Ito Collection What it is: Junji Ito is regarded as the greatest horror mangaka ever. He is known for his freakishly detailed artwork and nightmare-inducing short stories, and this anthology series adapts several of his works for the small screen. Ito’s work is terrifying because it makes horror from the everyday: a girl gets sick at school and suddenly grows a giant slug out of her mouth, for example, and a murderous knife-wielding puppet controls an entire family. It’s freaky stuff. Why you should watch: The collection offers psychological thrills in small bites and an introduction to Ito’s work.Episodes: 14Watch time: 5.5 hoursStreaming on: Crunchyroll, Amazon Prime VideoDemon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba 100% What it is: In feudal Japan, a boy returns home to find his entire family viciously killed by a demon. The only survivor is his sister, who apparently has been turned, but still retains conscious human thought and cognizance — except when she’s hungry! The boy learns the ways of demon hunting in order to find a cure for his sister and to save others that are threatened by the demon horde.Why you should watch: Demon Slayer’s incredible animation makes it one of the most beloved anime series out right now.Episodes: 26Watch time: 10.5 hoursStreaming on: Crunchyroll, Hulu, FunimationParasyte: The Maxim What it is: Wormlike alien creatures invade Earth and begin body-snatching, turning their hosts into cannibalistic monsters. Their delivery method of choice? Drilling themselves into human flesh while potential hosts sleep and heading straight for the brain. However, Shinichi Izumi is unique, because he wakes up during an attack and stops the alien from burrowing through his body. The alien (now living in his hand), becomes sentient and begins communicating with him and together they save the world.Why you should watch: It’s the body-horror buddy cop anime you never knew you needed.Episodes: 24Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: HuluAnotherWhat it is: Kōichi Sakakibara transfers to a new school in a town where a young girl has died some 20 years prior. He soon meets Mei, a quiet girl with an eyepatch whom both the teachers and students seem to ignore. When students and relatives start dying in a variety of strange and bloody ways, the pair soon realize all the incidents are connected and try to get to the bottom of the mystery before anyone else gets killed.Why you should watch: It’s Final Destination, anime-style, and a lot of fun.Episodes: 12Watch time: 5 hoursStreaming on: CrunchyrollAjin: Demi-Human What it is: Kei Nagai is an aloof pre-med student who is hit by a truck and killed on his way to class one day. Moments later, his body resurrects and Kei realizes that he is Ajin, a demi-human with limitless regenerative powers. Those qualities have attracted government interest, which has been quietly experimenting and torturing Ajin in an effort to exploit their immortality. Kei is thrown into a world he never knew existed and must choose to fight for survival as a demi-human or fight for the entire human race.Why you should watch: Ajin gets the blood pumping with big scares and thrilling action, packing both into its intriguing central mystery. Episodes: 26Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: Netflix %What it is: Keiichi Maebara moves to a small rural town he quickly comes to love, but soon learns the village has a very dark secret. The series’ story is told in multiple arcs with a repeating timeline that differs based on who is telling the story. Don’t let the cuteness of the first episodes fool you – this series is so twisted it will leave you wondering if you ever learned the truth about any of the characters at all.Why you should watch: It’s a twisty psychological thriller with a lot of violence and blood, if that’s your thing. Episodes: 26Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: HuluNote: There are many versions and series called When they Cry. This is referring to the first anime series.Devilman Crybaby 89% What it is: Akira is your average sensitive teen who hasn’t seen his buddy Ryo since they were childhood besties. One day Ryo suddenly pops back into town and drags Akira to an underground rave orgy where he commences stabbing people. But that’s not the crazy part: The scent of blood makes some of the ravers transform into beasts themselves – including Akira, who becomes a human-demon hybrid. Convinced by Ryo that this is his true calling, Akira’s innate sensitivity transforms him into a rare breed: A demon with a human heart, or Devilman. That doesn’t make him any less violent, as his teenage desires and new body ratchet both his demon-hunting skills and his sex drive up to 1,000. Oh yeah, and he cries. A lot.Why you should watch: One of Netflix’s most violent and sexually explicit series ever produced. You’ll love the retro animation and over-the-top gore and violence. NSFW.Episodes: 10Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: NetflixHellsing Ultimate What it is: Integra Fairbrook Wingates Helsing is the new leader of the Helsing family. She commands the largest military fighting force dedicated to the eradication of the undead in England under Her Majesty the Queen.

Eddie Murphy’s Coming 2 America Is Coming to Amazon(Photo by Paramount Pictures/courtesy Everett Collection)Eddie Murphy’s much-anticipated Coming to America sequel, Coming 2 America, was scheduled to hit movie theaters in December. But, like so many other movie projects this year, like Aaron Sorkin’s Trial of the Chicago 7, which just debuted on Netflix after an abandoned theatrical release, streaming is riding in to save the day for viewers.Variety reports that, with movie theater business yet to rebound during the pandemic, Paramount has made a deal to release the sequel on Amazon instead. It will premiere on Amazon on Dec. 18.Coming 2 America finds Murphy’s Prince Akeem, who married his American love Lisa (Shari Headley) in the original 1988 comedy classic, set to become the new king of his native Zamunda just as he finds out he has a son he knew nothing about in America. With his father (James Earl Jones) hoping that the grandson will be made a prince, Akeem returns to America to unite with his son.Arsenio Hall also returns in the sequel, as Akeem’s best friend, Semmi, as does John Amos as Lisa’s father Cleo. Also in the cast: Jermaine Fowler, Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, Garcelle Beauvais, Rock Ross, Louie Anderson, and Tracy Morgan. Joshua Jackson: There’s a New Dr. Death at Peacock(Photo by David M. Benett/Dave Benett/Getty Images for Dunhill)Jamie Dornan is out of the title role in Peacock’s upcoming podcast-inspired drama Dr. Death, and The Affair/Dawson’s Creek/Fringe/Little Fires Everywhere alum Joshua Jackson has signed on as the new series lead.Based on the podcast of the same name, the series is the fact-based story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch, a well-respected young member of the Dallas medical community as a neurosurgeon. But just as his career really began to take off, his patients, ones going into the operating room for fairly routine procedures, began leaving permanently harmed … or worse. Two fellow surgeons – to be played by Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater – began to suspect Duntsch of some very sick behavior, and set out to stop him from continuing to perform surgeries. Unfortunately, they found out that the patients who needed this protection might be the last ones to get it.Dornan had to drop out of the project because of pandemic-related rescheduling, as did Stephen Frears, who was set to direct the first two episodes. Maggie Kiley (Dirty John and Riverdale) will replace him, meaning there will be an all-female directing lineup for the limited series.NEW TRAILERS: HBO Unleashes His Dark Materials Season 2 First LookThe next installment of HBO s adaptation of Philip Pullman s acclaimed fantasy novel trilogy premieres November 16, 2020.

With Sunday’s Critic’s Choice Award ceremony done, all of the prominent critics groups have had their say on the best films of 2018. Each year, countless critics associations host year-end awards to recognize exceptional filmmaking, but the National Society of Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Circle, and Broadcast Film Critics Association are carefully considered when making Oscars predictions. Each group will say they are independent to the academy in voting, tastes, and identity, but they help shape the race for the big one. And so we have our eyes on them.Our Awards Leaderboard tracks major critics groups and guilds honors, and looking at the current leaders, we think Roma, If Beale Street Could Talk, and The Favourite should feel fairly confident of some Oscar love when the nominations are announced on Tuesday. (Regina King, Olivia Colman, and Richard E. Grant in particular would not be risking much to set an early alarm.) This year, though, there have been coordinated efforts to bring lesser-known films and performances into the conversation, so we re also expecting a number of surprises among the noms. Where might those surprises come from? Below, we re looking at Oscar long shots who might just have enough buzz – and which have a couple of awards already in the bag – to break through with some Oscar voters.Toni Collette, Hereditary (2018) 89% Best ActressAlready recognized by: Gotham Awards, Film IndependentDo we need to say more about what Toni Collette did in Hereditary? It seems some may have forgotten the greatest full body performance of 2018. In the movie – which caught fire at Sundance and made an impact at the box office – Collette gifted all of us with a face-screwed-screech-filled-terrified performance that takes at least three viewings to fully deconstruct. The Aussie actress started strong this awards season with a Gotham win followed by a Film Independent nomination, but then things went quiet. Collette would be vying for the open fifth Best Actress nomination – assuming favorites Colman, Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, and Melissa McCarthy all come through as expected. She will need those horror lovers in the Academy to champion her incredible work.Yalitza Aparicio, Roma (2018) 96% Best ActressAlready Recognized by: BFCA, Gotham Awards(Photo by © Netflix)It s worth noting the star of the most awarded film of the season has gone largely unrecognized. An unknown actress, in a black-and-white foreign language film, distributed on a platform many Academy voters herald as the end of cinema, is a hard sell. Director Alfonso Cuarón has repeatedly said Roma does not exist without the women who inspired and made it, but the accolades have not exactly come streaming in. In Cuarón’s semi-autobiographical love letter to Mexico and the woman who raised him, Aparicio gave depth and aching authenticity to a character rarely featured on screen. Cuarón painted a masterpiece, but Aparicio is the canvas, paint, and brush.Steven Yeun, Burning (2018) 95% Best ActorAlready Recognized by: LAFCA, NSFC(Photo by @ Go Well USA)Yeun’s performance as a South Korean playboy in Burning is ethereal, charismatic, and unnerving. Another foreign language entry, Lee Chang-dong’s noir-thriller slowly unravels and builds to a climactic twist you don’t see coming – and so much of it rests on the former Walking Dead star s performance; our thoughts on Yuen’s character, Ben, mirror how we interpret the events of the film. Is he just a spoiled playboy formulating sinister plots for entertainment? Or is he a calculating psychopath? Or maybe just a guy who likes to burn greenhouses? It all rests on what we see in Yuen, in his gaze or sly smile. It’s a tightrope to pull off a likable Oscar-worthy villain, and Yeun makes it look effortless. The formula worked for Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men, so fingers crossed.Debra Granik, Leave No Trace (2018) 100% Best DirectorAlready Recognized by: Film Independent, National Board of Review, LAFCA(Photo by JA/Everett Collection)In a year littered with exceptional work by female directors, it’s hard to justify their lack of inclusion come award time. The Rider, You Were Never Really Here, A Private Life, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, and Destroyer all are worthy of recognition. But Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace distinguishes itself from even those stellar entries – and not just because it still sits at 100% on our Tomatometer after 200 reviews. Director Jane Campion may have said it best in her impassioned plea for Leave No Trace: “A film filled with compassion… it has had a powerful impact on audiences. Not because it is loud, but because the truth that Granik speaks quietly can be heard even in a noisy world.”Elsie Fisher, Eighth Grade (2018) 99% Best ActressAlready Recognized by: Film Independent, Gotham Awards, DGA, BFCA, NYFCC(Photo by © A24)Cringeworthy Cinema: that’s how Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade and its star Elsie Fisher charmed their way into our hearts. Reliving the painfully awkward moments of adolescence with such unflinching honesty, Fisher gave the best performance of the year that we had to watch through fingers and stooping down in our seats. (OK, maybe tied with Collette – but for very different reasons.) Burnham’s script is the quintessential coming-of-age story for the YouTube generation and, as with Roma, his film lives or dies by its central performance. As Kayla, Fisher is relatable and endearing for tweens and their parents, finding a perfect blend of earnestness and mortification.Ethan Hawke, First Reformed (2017) 93% Best ActorAlready Recognized by: Film Independent, Gotham Awards, NYFCC, BFCA, LAFCA, NSFC(Photo by © A24)Ethan Hawke often remarks that he doesn t want to be known just for the Dead Poets Society. But after the over 30 years, 80 credits, four Oscar nominations, and countless more beloved performances, Hawke still hears Oh Captain, My Captain on the regular. His turn as the conflicted and apathetic Reverend Toller is miles away from any previous role he has done. Many are taking notice: With a near clean sweep of the critics associations, Hawke s performance in First Reformed is second only to Regina King s in Beale Street in regards to acclaim this season. Why isn t he a lock for an Oscar nom? Hawke s lack of movement outside of the critics groups awards does not bode well. We ll be watching this one keenly.Oscar nominations are announced on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 首先嘛，得看看手游和端游都多少个G，我还看到有人报怨手机内存不够呢，其次，还得怪cod手游的宣发，天天放cod手游和端游的对比视频，找骂，这里面自然也会部分端游玩家优越感过高的原因
