2019 Oscars guild awards final scorecard: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ wins 4, ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Green Book’ 3

2019 Oscars guild awards final scorecard: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ wins 4, ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Green Book’ 3
While “Bohemian Rhapsody” lost at the Costume Designer Awards on Tuesday, it still ended up winning the most precursor prizes of the eight Best Picture nominees at the Oscars. This biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury won with four of the nine guilds at which it contended. It lost with the art directors, costume designers, makeup artists/hairstylists, producers and visual effects wizards.

Two of its Academy Awards rivals for the top award — “Black Panther” and “The Favourite” — did win over the costume designers. These victories in the fantasy and period film races respectively brought their overall hauls to three apiece. “Black Panther” had previously prevailed with the actors and art directors while “The Favourite” scored with the art directors and film editors. They are now tied with “Green Book,” which had wins with the actors, casting directors and producers.

Crazy Rich Asians,” which was snubbed by the Oscars, also

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves into first with two days of voting left
With the Writers Guild and Motion Picture Sound Editors awards on Sunday (February 17), we’ve now heard from 12 of the 13 guilds. The costume designers don’t weigh in till hours after Oscar voting ends on Tuesday, February 19.

The winners with the writers were “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” (adapted”) and “Eighth Grade” (original) while “A Quiet Place” took the top sound editing award. The Oscar frontrunner for Best Original Screenplay, “The Favourite,” was ineligible at the WGA Awards. Over on the sound side, two other Best Picture nominees, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Roma,” picked up two and one prizes respectively.

Bohemian Rhapsody” had also won on Saturday with the sound mixers at the Cinema Audio Society Awards. That one-two punch moves this biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury into first on our guild awards scorecard with four wins following its success with the actors and film editors.

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ finally gets on board with makeup win but loses sound mixing to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
It took till the last weekend of guild awards season but “A Star is Born” finally picked up a prize at the Makeup and Hair Styling Awards on Saturday, February 16. This win for best contemporary makeup was particularly welcome as Bradley Cooper‘s remake of the Hollywood classic lost at the other guild awards of the evening. The Cinema Audio Society went with “Bohemian Rhapsody” for Best Sound Mixing.

This marked the third victory to date for the biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury following its success with the actors and film editors. “Crazy Rich Asians” picked up its third prize as well, with a win for contemporary hairstyling. It had previously won over both the art and casting directors. Each is now tied with “Green Book,” which has wins with the actors, casting directors and producers.

Two more guilds — the sound editors and writers — will chime in on Sunday.

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘Green Book’ leads heading into Academy Awards voting
We’ re now more than two-thirds along the road to the Oscars with 9 of the 13 guilds having weighed in with their picks before academy voters begin casting their final ballots on Feb. 12. “Green Book” has won with the three of the eight groups heard from to date: actors, casting directors and producers.

After their success with the art directors, “Black Panther” and “The Favourite” are now tied with “Bohemian Rhapsody” at two wins apiece as detailed below. And “Roma” got on the scoreboard with that DGA win for multi-hyphenate Alfonso Cuaron, who lost the cinematography award on Feb. 9 to “Cold War” lenser Lukasz Zal.

Three more groups — makeup artists & hair stylists, sound editors and writers — announce their winners during the eight days of voting for the Academy Awards. And the costume designers hold their awards mere hours after Academy Awards balloting ends on Feb. 20.

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘First Man’ gets first win from Visual Effects Society

We are now more than halfway along the road to the Oscars as the seventh of 13 guilds — the Visual Effects Society — handed out its precursor prizes on Feb. 5. Only one of the Best Picture nominees was in the running: “Bohemian Rhapsody” lost its bid for best supporting visual effects to “First Man.” That marked the first guild win for Damien Chazelle‘s biopic of Neil Armstrong.

The big winner with the Ves was “Avengers: Infinity War” which swept its four categories, including the guild equivalent of Best Picture – visual effects in a feature motion picture. Among its other wins was effects simulations. While it had contended for its depiction of Wakanda, the home of Black Panther, it won instead for bringing Titan to the screen. That wasn’t surprising given that the Ves had snubbed “Black Panther” across the board.

Ace Eddie Awards Go To “Bohemian Rhapsody” And “The Favourite”

Last night saw an under the radar precursor give out its prizes, which in turn may have shifted one of the Oscar categories. Yes, Friday evening saw the American Cinema Editors give out their annual Ace Eddie awards. This yearly event usually can clue us in to what the frontrunners for Best Film Editing at the Academy Awards are. That may well be the case again here, though if that’s true, the Academy and its voters are going to be making an usual choice. They already did in terms of their nominees in the category though, so I suppose this is just par for the course… In a bit of a surprise, the award for Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic) went to John Ottman for his work on Bohemian Rhapsody. Ottman won in an upset over Barry Alexander Brown for BlacKkKlansman, Jay Cassidy for A Star Is Born, Tom Cross for First Man,

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: With Ace Eddies win, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves into second behind ‘Green Book’
With the Ace Eddie Awards on Feb. 1, we’ve now heard from 4 of the 13 guilds who give out prizes. “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which had already racked up a win with SAG for lead Rami Malek, won with the cutters on the drama side. That moves it into second place on our guild awards scorecard behind “Green Book” which has won over the actors, casting directors and producers to date. And “The Favourite” got on the board with its comedy/musical win at the Ace Eddies.

On Feb. 2, we’ll hear from the directors (“Roma” helmer Alfonso Cuaron is tipped to take that prize) and the art directors who hand out awards in three genres. We expect “The Favourite” to win the period prize, “Black Panther” to claim the fantasy award and “Crazy Rich Asians” to nab the contemporary honor.

Before final Oscar voting begins on Feb. 12., we will also hear from the visual effects wizards (Feb.

Before nominations for the Oscars were announced on Jan. 22, we’d already heard from the producers and actors with their picks for the best of the year.

Jon M. Chu on ‘Crazy Rich Asians’: ‘We Had a Sense of Purpose’

  • Variety
Making any movie is hard, but nothing is more challenging than creating a film that looks fun and effortless — and original. Warner Bros.’ “Crazy Rich Asians” succeeds on all three counts, and the film’s popularity proves that it struck a nerve with filmgoers.

“From the start, we wanted more than a romantic comedy,” director Jon M. Chu tells Variety. “We had something to say. That was not just from the writers; that’s from the actors, the crew, everyone; there was a sense of purpose.”

The film looks at family and tradition, but it’s fundamentally about identity, which is a struggle of the heroine (Constance Wu), her fiance (Henry Golding) and her future mother-in-law (Michelle Yeoh). But it’s also about the very different cultural identities of Chinese, Chinese-Americans and the specific subset of wealthy Chinese people living in Singapore.

With $238 million worldwide box office, it’s clear

Ace Eddie, Art Directors Guild, Asc, and Writers Guild nominations announced!

It was a busy morning for precursor awards today, wasn’t it? Not only are we still recovering from what went on at the Golden Globes last night, a quartet of important stepping stones to Oscar announced their nominees. The nominations came from the Ace Eddies (the Guild for film editors), the American Society of Cinematographers (the Guild for cinematography), the Art Directors Guild, and of course, the Writers Guild. The latter, as usual, had disqualified some high profile contenders, so that’s important to keep in mind, but the former three have given us a decent look at the likeliest Academy Award nominees in Best Production Design and Best Film Editing, respectively. The four precursors represented Guilds that actually correspond with Academy members, so keep that in mind. Ace Eddie and Adg separate into multiple categories, so that’s worth making note of, as well. Also, as you might imagine,
