Denis Villeneuve (‘Blade Runner 2049’) and Luca Guadagnino (‘Call Me by Your Name’): Does BAFTA nom – DGA snub = Oscar nomination?

Denis Villeneuve (‘Blade Runner 2049’) and Luca Guadagnino (‘Call Me by Your Name’): Does BAFTA nom – DGA snub = Oscar nomination?
Filmmakers Denis Villeneuve (“Blade Runner 2049”) and Luca Guadagnino (“Call Me by Your Name”) were snubbed by the Directors Guild Awards, but both scored BAFTA bids. Since the British academy moved up its awards to precede the Oscars starting in 2000, five of its nominees for Best Director have made it in at the Academy Awards despite being left off the DGA roster. Can Villeneuve and Guadagnino do the same?

Back in 2000, Stephen Daldry was on the hunt for an Oscar for “Billy Elliot.” Things started out badly when he was snubbed by both the Golden Globes and the DGA. That year three directors contended at the Golden Globes, DGA Awards, and BAFTAs on their way to Oscar nominations: Ang Lee for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Ridley Scott for “Gladiator” and Steven Soderbergh for both “Erin Brockovich” and “Traffic.” With the fifth slot still up for grabs, English filmmaker Daldry scored

With Oscar Nominations Ahead, Specialized Releases Hold Their Breath at the Box Office

With Oscar Nominations Ahead, Specialized Releases Hold Their Breath at the Box Office
Tuesday’s Oscar nominations could add $100 million or more to the box office, but for now new titles don’t have much to say for themselves. In a non-holiday weekend, six titles grossed $31 million, down less than a quarter from last week. Still, that’s way up from last year, a period that was powered by the widely popular “Hidden Figures.”

A higher than usual number of new releases have yet to report numbers, perhaps with distributors more occupied with battles over future films than keeping track of their current entries.

PGA Awards: ‘The Shape of Water’ win boosts its Oscar odds but SAG Awards could change that

PGA Awards: ‘The Shape of Water’ win boosts its Oscar odds but SAG Awards could change that
“The Shape of Water” won Best Picture at the PGA Awards on Jan. 20. We know that the Producers Guild of America has previewed a whopping 19 of the last 28 Best Picture Oscar winners including six of the eight since the academy expanded the category in 2010. So, that must mean “The Shape of Water” is the new Academy Awards frontrunner, ahead of “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” which had been predicted to win this precursor prize, right? Not so fast.

Remember, the guild has gotten it wrong for two years running. In 2016 “The Big Short” took the PGA award while “Spotlight” went home with the top Oscar. And last year, “La La Land” won over the members of the guild while “Moonlight” was the academy favorite.

Were those two years the exception or the new rule?

After all, the guild adopted the same way of voting by preferential ballot as the academy
