Double trouble: These actors were in multiple Oscar-nominated films this year

BG Los Angeles Academy Awards approach, but interest has waned
Ivan Hill | 06 March, 2018, 01:42

The presentations in 12 categories lasted a mere 15 minutes.

Interest in the Academy Awards continues to decline.

LOCATION: The show is taking place this year at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.

Ahead of Sunday's 90th Academy Awards, Associated Press film writers Lindsey Bahr and Jake Coyle share their predictions for a ceremony that - at least at the end - should be a nail biter. Goldberg kept the show moving at a brisk pace, poking fun at everyone from alleged Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss to Lorena Bobbitt.

Given his more politically-charged monologues recently on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", there are sure to be some Trump jokes - and disses. Despite such an unenviable position, that night she quipped: "This has been a hell of a year. But we have recovered: Mariah Carey has already made another movie".

Who will win: There's no doubt about it, this year is tough to predict. But first in his opening monologue, Kimmel addressed last year's fiasco when the name of the wrong film was announced as Best Picture victor.

In 1989, the Academy tried to shake things up by having no official host for the ceremony.

Perfecting your Oscar acceptance speech is nearly as tough as winning the gold statuette in the first place.

The Observatory said Turkish forces had advanced to within 12 km (7 miles) of Afrin. "We will continue to fight terrorism". According to Yevtushenko, twenty-four mines were fired at Damascus and its suburbs from Eastern Ghouta in the past day.


There are 24 Oscar categories, but most folks tune in for the Big 4 - best picture, actor, actress and director. And though we can't promise another La La Land-Moonlight mix-up will happen again, we've got another reason for you to look forward to the three-hour show.

"I don't remember a year with so much uncertainty". Scheduled for three hours, the telecast dragged on slightly more than 3½ hours, and most reviews were withering.

1963 - Sidney Poitier becomes the first black man to win an Oscar for acting, for "Lilies of the Field". Chase was never asked to return as host. "You'd all be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now". He said, "This movie, lovely and a little disturbing, has a feel of film greatness to it". Host Bob Hope marks the occasion by saying, "Isn't it exciting to know that a lot of these glamorous stars are going to be in your homes tonight?" The Oscars: All Access, which can be viewed by Facebook Live via the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences page, will allow viewers to watch interviews with Tinsletown's most notable stars. Williams holds the record for original-score nominations with 46.

Though unspecified what the moment during the Oscars ceremony would involve, leaders said they had worked with the show's producers to bring attention to their cause.

Will Win: Rockwell is the favorite but I smell an upset.

Tonight is the 2018 Academy Awards, aka The Oscars, and The Shape of Water leads with 13 nominations.

Kimmel did the honors previous year, making him the first host to repeat back-to-back since Billy Crystal doubled up in 1997 and 1998. (The New Yorker called it a "hostile, ugly, sexist night.") Then there was James Franco and Anne Hathaway in 2011 - Hathaway seemed to try too hard; Franco seemed distant, even after donning a pink gown.
