Great Scots!

byJason Adams

It is always good news when the Coen Bros announce a new thing,even if the new thing turns out to be kinda hit-n-miss like I found their last new thing (that'd beThe Ballad of Buster Scruggs,which I reviewed out of NYFF last fallright here) to be.The hits are worth the misses.("Pan shot!") But today's good news is more than good -- it's downright invigorating.

The Bros are taking on the Bard-- they're making theirMacbeth,and it's going to star Denzel Washington (who previously played Don Pedro in Kenneth Branagh'sMuch Ado About Nothing,pictured) and Frances McDormand (who is Frances f'ing McDormand) as the Lord and his Lady.O,Vaulting Ambition!

And you're a better person than I if you're not already casting this thing in your head with a bunch of Coen regulars -- as soon as I landed on Tilda Swinton playing all three of the witches I might've passed right out.Who are you play-casting?

Top 10: Oscar's All Time Favorite Leading Men

by Nathaniel R

I was shocked to realize that De Niro,Hanks,Penn,and Pacino -- none of them made the top ten!

Okay okay.Since we didSupporting MenandSupporting Womenduring the summer, I figured we should complete the set.Who are Oscar's 10 favorite leading men?We'll work the ranking like so: Nominations count most,with wins acting like half a nomination to help determine rank.The tiebreaker is the spread of time of nominations which can denote either long term fandom on the Academy's part or shortlived enthusiasms.If there's still a tie at that point,other Oscar statistics (like if they were nominated for producing or supporting or whatnot) break the tie.

Only 20 men throughout film history have scored 5 or more nominations for Best Lead Actor and thoughthis year's currently pulsing competition for Best Actoris chalk full of previous nominees,none of them are regulars tothatdegree.Here are the ten runners up followed by the all-time top ten list...

In Defense of Denzel Washington in "Roman J.Israel, Esq."

By Spencer Coile

Last year's Best Actor race was highly contentious.Due to an influx of coverage surrounding sexual harassment charges,many people became uncomfortable with Casey Affleck's frontrunner status.This led some Oscar gurus to prognosticate a spoiler victory for Denzel Washington for hisFencespassion project. How close the voting was we'll never know but Washington and Affleck were considered to be neck-and-neck at the end.

Still,Affleck was victorious,leaving many (most notably,Brie Larson) unhappy or furious.While the narrative is not exactly the same for the new Best Actor race,there is one common denominator: Denzel Washington.

Are Three Multiple-Win Actors Competing for the 5th Spot in "Best Actor"?

by Nathaniel R

They were 35,37,and 32 when they won their first Osars

This Best Actor race has not been shaping up as we suspected two months ago when few imagined that fresher faces like 21 year old Timothée Chalamet,28 year old first time leading man Daniel Kaluuya and 39 yr old but reads younger fringe dweller James Franco would be looking more secure for Best Actor spots than three of Oscar's all time favorite legendary leading men: Denzel Washington (2 wins),Tom Hanks (2 wins),and Daniel Day Lewis (3 wins).But that's what it feels like today afterthe SAG nominationshave capped off a busy busy couple of weeks worth of pre-Oscar honors.

But can it really be true that there's only one spot to claim between these three titans of Oscar hearts?Or are we reading the tea leaves wrong?Are voters ready to move on to fresher blood (two twentysomething in one Best Actor category would be quite something since that category far prefers mileage on a man) or will two or even three of the legends make it,tossing out one of the rising stars?What's your take on the situation?Though people have been calling Best Actor "weak"for months (perhaps for the lack of frontrunners...with Gary Oldman less of an inevitable winner than he at first seemed) it seems awfully competitive at the last minute.
