Oscar nominees with ties to Chicago head to Hollywood

03 March 2018

Patrick Stewart host the Academy Scientific and Technical Awards on February 10, 2018, in a ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The colorful, musical and cultural flick did not disappoint, and, like most Disney productions, this movie is enjoyable for people of all ages. The year after her big win, she arrived on the red carpet in an unflattering silver gown that bunched up the wrong places. If any film is going to upset it, we'll go with Get Out, a critical darling and box office hit that's a favorite of numerous Academy's younger, more diverse members.

The trend here is clear. "Kids: black, white, Puerto Rican (and) Asian can literally sit there and see a representation they've never seen before", Henry said.

Though Sunday marks 90 years of Oscars, Nielsen's electronic database only dates back to September 1991.

"Last year, the movie with far and away more nominations than any other ended up losing best picture to a movie that spoke more to the times", Karger said, recalling the 2017 win of black drama Moonlight over presumed front-runner La La Land.

Toronto-Dominion Bank also rallied after reporting quarterly earnings that beat market expectations. The benchmark S&P 500 .SPX shed its gains during his testimony and ended the day down 1.3 percent.

Organizers are looking to rebound after last year's flubbed announcement of the best picture victor - the trophy was initially given to La La Land, when the actual victor was Moonlight.

We saw that past year with "Moonlight". Meanwhile, Octavia Spencer and Mary J. Blige are nominated in the best supporting actress category for "The Shape of Water" and "Mudbound", respectively.

The Acting Categories: Usually these categories are the subject of many water-cooler debates, with most of the nominees in a probable position to take home their awards. In less than three weeks the actor, nearing 88 years old, crafted an elegant and wily performance, in time to screen the film for the press and keep the original December release date.
