Oscar Chart Updates: 5 Questions about the Actresses

It was long past time for a revision of those April Foolish Oscar Predictions charts.("That's an understatement,"the readers scream in unison) so here we go,finally for early August.It's just a few weeks before things really get churning withthe fall festivals.So here are ten questions that are on our mind now that we've finished updating theBEST ACTRESSandBEST SUPPORTING ACTRESScharts - so check them out.And please to do your own speculation in the comments about these questions.

01.Will Scarlett Johansson finally get an Oscar nomination?Or TWO?She's got a lead actress bid with the buzzyMarriage Storyand we know that Noah Baumbach is good with actors.But we still think she's more likely as the brave mother in Taiki Waitit's satireJoJo Rabbit.The hilarious thing about Scarlett is she's so underrated as an actor now -- given her years in franchiseland and her recent missteps in interviews -- that she might even qualify as a "I didn't know she had that in her"surprise type player...even if that's a case of willful amnesia about her talent...

Great Moments in Horror Actressing

byJason Adams

It's hard not to walk out of Quentin Tarantino'sOnce Upon a Time...in Hollywoodwithout Sharon Tate on your mind.Whether it's because you thought the film needed more of what Margot Robbie was serving or iflike meit's because you thought what Robbie did serve was A+ First Class stuff,the specter of that real woman,rightfully,lords over the entire experience.Sharon Tate only got to make six films before she was murdered,and two of them were horror films -- not an unlikely statistic for any young beautiful actress,but one that's linked itself arm in arm with Tate's fate nonetheless.

I've never seen her 1967 British occult flickEye of the Devil,which had her playing a witch opposite David Niven and Deborah Kerr.But I've seen her other horror flick of that same year,Roman Polanski'sThe Fearless Vampire Killers,more times than I can count,and it's Tate's under-valued performance that I always think of when I think of the film.She's barely in it but she walks away with it -- a pale fire piled in soap bubbles and snow...

Review: Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood

This review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad...

We want you...to see this movie so we can talk about it.

[Spoiler-free review]Here's the best way to know that you're inside an auteur's movie.It's impossible to imagine it having been made by anyone else.Quentin Tarantino's 10th feature film (creatively referred to as his 9th,presumably to give him a retirement out after his various "I'll quit after 10 films!"proclamations) is a fable about Hollywood.The movie begins in 1968 and ends in the summer of 1969 when the very pregnant actress Sharon Tate,Roman Polanski's new wife,and her house guests were all brutally murdered by the Manson family.Any number of filmmakers could have made a movie about that infamous year in California,but only Tarantino could have madeOnce Upon a Time … in Hollywood.

Historical events,real ones at least,have never been as sacred to Tarantino as the history of the movies.Whenever he's dipped into "history"--Django Unchained,Inglourious Basterds-- it's been as emotionally loaded prefab worlds from which to spin his own idiosyncratic yarns.  In this regardOnce Upon a Timeis no exception.To this viewer,though,his latest movie feels closer in spirit toPulp Fiction...

"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" Teases

by Nathaniel R

After two absolutely hideous photoshopped posters (we can't even post them they're so ugly) we were beginning to worry about Quentin Tarantino's Manson-era Hollywood tale starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt (as a famous actor and his stunt double) and Margot Robbie as Roman Polanski's late wife Sharon Tate.But the teaser has restored hope...
