Stage Set For Oscars To mark Year Eclipsed By #MeToo

To celebrate 90 years of the Academy Awards, The Hollywood Reporter is bringing together every best actor victor in the history of the show in under 90 seconds.

Gold Derby, a site that collates the awards predictions of experts and members of the public, also has it as favourite in the best actress and supporting actor categories, with The Shape of Water ahead in best directing, production design and score. Also, it should be noted that Paul Thomas Anderson is a genius, so it's a very strong category this year. He called the Oscars the "White People's Choice Awards" and noted that if they had nominated potential hosts, "I wouldn't have this job".

"What I learned previous year is there's a lot of elements to the show that you can't control", she added. "I thought Gary had lost his mind". Don't get me wrong, The Shape of Water is a great movie-one of the best of the year in my opinion-I just don't think it deserves to win over Get Out.

As with the Golden Globes in January, the mood in Tinseltown on Sunday is expected to be celebratory but defiant as the film world's A-listers speak out against dozens of showbiz people called out for predatory behaviour since October. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings. "Not only did he handle this so graciously - and I'm not sure everybody would have in this situation - but he gave us the opportunity to get that shot".

Few who sat at home watching last year's Oscars telecast are likely to soon forget the show's shocking and chaotic final moments, in which La La Land was mistakenly announced as best picture over the actual victor, Moonlight.

"This year, four of the nine nominated movies have a female perspective". I do have a philosophy, and that's: don't say something if you don't believe it. More of this, please.

They join previously announced presenters Fred Armisen, Chadwick Boseman, Carrie Brownstein, John Cho, Jason Clarke, Jon Hamm, Ethan Hawke, Salma Hayek Pinault, Spike Lee, Ben Mendelsohn, Kumail Nanjiani, Margot Robbie, Amanda Seyfried, Lena Waithe, and Ava DuVernay, who is this year's Honorary Chair. "Those three have the most contending chance to win, and I really appreciated 'Dunkirk" for what it was". However, the number of nominees that are men of color stayed about the same and the number of nominees that are women of color actually went down. This being said, diversity in the film industry and at the Oscars is not a numbers game.

The 50-year-old entertainer talked with The Associated Press about his plans for what he can control at Sunday's show.

Anderson-Lehman: It's complicated. I think the Oscars are addressing their diversity issue with nominating "Get Out" this year and "Moonlight" winning last year. If they have something they want to share, I hope they do share it. Now, as to whether they actually are - I don't think they are anywhere close in terms of the resources given to creating products that feature a diverse range of people.
