Laura Dern Had a Jurassic Park Reunion at the Critics' Choice, Because Life, Uh, Finds a Way

Laura Dern Had a Jurassic Park Reunion at the Critics' Choice, Because Life, Uh, Finds a Way
Jurassic Park was "alive" at the 2019 Critics' Choice Awards. That's according to Laura Dern, who shared a sweet reunion and stopped to take a selfie with Joe Mazzello at the event. Though it might be hard to tell because he's a full adult now - time flies, huh? - Mazzello portrayed Tim Murphy, grandson to Jurassic Park's kooky creator, in the beloved '90s film. The actor would go on to appear in the sequel, while Dern had a brief appearance in the third installment. Mazzello shared the same selfie on his Instagram, and described it as the highlight of his night.

Dern was at the award show because she was nominated for best actress in a movie made for TV or limited series for her role in The Tale. Mazzello, meanwhile, was in attendance with the Bohemian Rhapsody cast, as he portrayed Queen bassist John Deacon in the film.

Is ‘A Star Is Born’ in danger of being the 6th film to go 0-4 at the SAG Awards?

Is ‘A Star Is Born’ in danger of being the 6th film to go 0-4 at the SAG Awards?
A Star Is Born” leads the Screen Actors Guild Awards with four nominations and is one of 18 films to get four bids. But might it walk away empty-handed? If it does, it’d be the sixth movie to go 0-4.

The film is up for ensemble, lead actor for Bradley Cooper, lead actress for Lady Gaga and supporting actor for Sam Elliott, but it’s currently not projected to win any of them in on our combined odds. “A Star Is Born” is in second to “Black Panther” in ensemble, while Christian Bale (“Vice”) and Glenn Close (“The Wife”) have leapfrogged over one-time favorites Cooper and Gaga following their Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice victories. And Elliott is in third place, trailing Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Globe and Critics’ Choice champ Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”).

Hey Rami Malek, get your SAG Awards acceptance speech ready

Hey Rami,

Apologies that I have to use Gold Derby in order to get this message to you. I don’t have your email address and we’re not friends on Facebook.

I know that you’re peeking at your odds here, just like most of this year’s film contenders are. So I know that you’ll read this. (Lady Gaga – you can move on now. This doesn’t concern you.)

First of all, congratulations on your victory at the Golden Globes. You delivered the most eloquent and gracious speech.

Second, sorry about the loss at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Even though I predicted you to win, I’m not surprised that you didn’t. Those cranky critics just can’t handle the fact that “Bohemian Rhapsody” has turned into an international phenomenon, in spite of their assessment that the film is just so-so. Rewarding you would have meant admitting that they were wrong,

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Star Rami Malek on the Most Fun Scene to Shoot – And No, It Wasn’t Live Aid (Video)
Days on the “Bohemian Rhapsody” set were filled with wonderful (if not tumultuous) moments for Rami Malek, but his fondest memory was of filming the Rio de Janeiro concert near the end of production.

“The most fun was towards the end — there’s that scene in Rio, where Freddie is leading the audience and kind of conducting them,” Malek told TheWrap’s editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman at TheWrap’s screening series in Los Angeles last week. “That was the last scene I shot, and I got to conduct in front of the camera, and take a bow. At that point, I had become extremely flexible, so my bow felt really good from take one. And it came to about take four when I thought, what is going on that Dexter is asking me to keep bowing and bowing? I come up from take five and the entire crew has surrounded me

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ now 11 for 12 after missing visual effects nomination, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves up to second
We just heard from the Visual Effects Society with their nominees for the best of the year. These wizards of wonder were the 12th of 13 guilds and societies to weigh in with their choices following the actors, art directors, casting directors, cinematographers, costume designers, directors, film editors, makeup artists & hairstylists, producers, sound mixers and writers. (The sound editors don’t chime in till the end of the month.)

The Ves brought an end to the streak for “A Star is Born” that had seen it reap bids from the first 11 precursor prizes to reveal their rosters. Among the other leading Oscar contenders, “Bohemian Rhapsody” reaped a bid for it supporting visual effects and now moves into a tie for second place on the overall list with “BlacKkKlansman” with nominations from eight guilds.

2019 Visual Effects Society Awards nominations: Oscar frontrunner ‘Black Panther’ snubbed, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ leads

2019 Visual Effects Society Awards nominations: Oscar frontrunner ‘Black Panther’ snubbed, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ leads
Black Panther” was shut out of the nominations for the Visual Effects Society Awards on Tuesday January 15. While this blockbuster won’t be in contention at the 17th annual edition of these kudos, it is the overwhelming frontrunner to win the Oscar for Best Visual Effect. While being snubbed by the Ves is a setback, the society only previews about three-quarters of the eventual Oscar nominees.

The closest rival to “Black Panther” at the Academy Awards — “Avengers: Infinity War” — reaped a leading six nominations from the Ves. Among these is a bid for Best Effects Simulations for the depiction of Wakanda, the home of Black Panther. “Ready Player One” reaped five bids as did “Incredibles 2” over on the animation side.

Among the other nominations for “Avengers: Infinity War” is the Ves equivalent of the Best Picture race — visual effects in a feature motion picture — along with “Christopher Robin,”“Ready Player One,

Inside an Oscar Season of Anger

  • Variety
The furor that has flared around virtually every major Oscar rival this year has turned the ongoing awards season into a particularly ugly one. As the proceedings continue to devolve into a fit of collective rage aimed at any and all, it’s worth a recap.

Just before the season kicked off at the Venice and Telluride film festivals, the first fracas struck, though it ultimately amounted to little more than a filmmaker beef. On Twitter, outspoken “Sorry to Bother You” director Boots Riley slammed “BlacKkKlansman” for inaccuracies, and accused director Spike Lee of promulgating disingenuous pro-law-enforcement propaganda. A separate Twitter confrontation with screenwriter Charlie Wachtel escalated until the “BlacKkKlansman” scribe deleted his entire Twitter account. The whole spat lasted at least until the Governors Awards in November, where Riley said Lee shouted to him, “I’m Miles Davis, you’re Chet Baker!!!”

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Leads Ves Awards with Six VFX Nominations, with Surprising Shutouts

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Leads Ves Awards with Six VFX Nominations, with Surprising Shutouts
While “Avengers: Infinity War” topped the 17th annual Ves Awards (to be held February 5th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel) with six nominations, “Black Panther,” Marvel’s other Oscar frontrunner, was shut out. And Damien Chazelle’s acclaimed “First Man,” another frontrunner, was included in the supporting category as a result of its invisible VFX. Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” meanwhile, was also snubbed.

However, joining “Infinity War” in the top VFX category were a surprising list: “Ready Player One” (with five nominations), “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” “Christopher Robin” and “Welcome to Marwen.” Joining “First Man” for supporting VFX were “12 Strong,” Bird Box,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and “Outlaw King”.

In animation, Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” was the big winner with five nominations, followed by Sony’s “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” with four. They were joined by Illumination’s “The Grinch” and Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs.

This 1 Detail Really Completed Rami Malek's Transformation Into Freddie Mercury

Controversies aside, Rami Malek did a great job portraying Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. He nailed the vocals, he totally got the look, and he convinced the team to allow him to incorporate more of Mercury's sexuality in the film. But there's one facet of Malek's insane transformation that we simply can't get over: he even wore a pair of artificial teeth to re-create the Queen frontman's pronounced overbite, which was due to four additional incisors the singer was born with.

To prepare for the role, Malek was fitted with prosthetic teeth a whole year before filming Bohemian Rhapsody so that he could get used to speaking and singing with them.

Bohemian Rhapsody's Award Season Buzz Isn't Just Disappointing - It's Dangerous

Bohemian Rhapsody's Award Season Buzz Isn't Just Disappointing - It's Dangerous
Drawn to Freddie Mercury's unparalleled voice and flamboyance, drawn to the song lyrics that have proved themselves indelible in our collective memory, like so many, I grew up idolizing the Queen frontman. This was before I knew about his sexuality - or even my own - but in many ways, it wasn't a secret. His performance of gender and masculinity was coded in queerness, nuances during the '70s and '80s that now, in hindsight, seem to scream with clarity.

At that time, Freddie Mercury wasn't able to be publicly out and have the career that he did. That's what makes the recent Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie just as scared of his sexuality, so distressing. As the film, which won the Golden Globe for best motion picture drama and best actor for lead Rami Malek, continues to receive accolades, Hollywood is signaling that this is the gold standard for queer storytelling.

Darci Lynne Farmer was robbed by superfans say 86% of ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ viewers

While the people didn’t get to vote for the results of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” we gave them a chance to have their say. A whopping 86% of “Agt” viewers think that the superfans got it wrong when they put rock opera singer Cristina Ramos through to the final over singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer.

Because this spin-off edition of “America’s Got Talent” was taped back in September and October, the public was not given a chance to weigh in with their thoughts on the 10 performance on the episode that aired on January 14. Instead, producers gave the right to choose one act for a place in the final to a group of fans drawn from all 50 states. (The other act to secure a spot in the final was the Golden Buzzer pick of judge Heidi Klum – daredevil duo Deadly Games.)

Darci Lynne won season 12 of “Agt” in

Who was better on ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ – Darci Lynne Farmer or Cristina Ramos? [Poll]
At the end of the January 14 episode of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” host Terry Crews revealed that Darci Lynne Farmer had lost the vote to Cristina Ramos. Did the superfans get it wrong? Do you think that Darci Lynne, who won “Agt” in 2017 deserved a place in the final over Cristina, who took the title in the 2016 season of “Spain’s Got Talent.” Vote in our poll below and sound off in the comments section.

Darci Lynne opened the second episode of the show with her puppet pal Oscar the Mouse. He admits to being nervous, but then joins Darci Lynne for a rocking medley of the Tina Turner classics “Nutbush City Limits” and “Proud Mary.”Our live blogger John Benutty thought the world of Darci Lynne Farmer’s performance: “She set the standard very high for the rest of the night, receiving a standing ovation from the judges and audience.

Will Darci Lynne Farmer return to ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ as a wild card?

Will Darci Lynne Farmer return to ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ as a wild card?
Fans of Darci Lynne Farmer, don’t despair. While this singing ventriloquist lost the votes of the superfans at the end of episode 2 of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” she could still end up in the final in a few weeks time. She would need to be picked by the judges as one of the wild cards. And based on their praise of her performance, that looks like a real possibility. The regular version of “Agt” includes this element, so it seems a safe bet that this spin-off series will too.

Indeed, in the most recent season of “America’s Got Talent,” opera singer Daniel Emmet — who was a wild card pick of the four judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel — was brought back for the quarter-final and made it all the way to the live Top 10 show.

Korea Box Office: Local Titles ‘Mal-Mo-e’ and ‘Dude’ Beat ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’

Opening on Wednesday (Jan. 9), Korean drama “Mal-mo-e: The Secret Mission” debuted on top of the South Korean box office. The Lotte Cultureworks release earned $8.96 million from 1.19 million admissions between Wednesday and Sunday, including some $6.16 million collected over the weekend. Set in the 1940s when Korea was under Japanese occupation, the drama sees the story of a group of literary scholars who fought to revive the Korean language, which they were not allowed to use at that time.

Local comedy “The Dude in Me” also opened on Wednesday and landed in second. The body swap comedy, involving a high school student and a gangster, earned $5.91 million over five days. Together the top two films accounted for 58% of the weekend box office.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” slipped to third from the previous weekend’s top spot. The Walt Disney animation earned $2.3 million. That lifts its cumulative total to $9.55 million after two weekends.

On the Charts: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie Sells 823 Copies, Earns Number One

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie staked his first Number One album as the New York rapper’s Hoodie Szn sold 58,000 total copies… but only 823 traditional copies.

Hoodie Szn accumulated 83 million streams over the past week, which when converted into streaming equivalent albums (SEAs) allowed a Boogie Wit Da Hoodie to ascend to Number One after two weeks in second place, Billboard reports.

However, as the New York Times notes, less than 1,000 people actually purchased the digital-only album. That makes Hoodie Szn the all-time lowest-selling Number One album, breaking the record
